'Heart of Palms' in the gated, Gulf front community of Old Florida Beach is a quiet retreat for both families and older guests. Just 30 yards from the Community Heated Swimming Pool, 50 yards to the dock on Draper Lake and 100 yards from the luxuriously wide Beach.

Just off of the kitchen entrance, you'll find two grills - a charcoal Big Green Egg and a separate gas grill.

Just down the road on 30-A, walk or bike to Gulf Place shopping center for more restaurants, ice cream, clothing stores, wine shop or pharmacy. A bike path connects all of the communities along highway 30-A including Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach. The outlets of Sandestin are only 15 minutes drive from here.

For the nature lover, Draper Lake Preserve edges along the Old Florida Beach neighborhood and has a dock just 5 houses down the street from which you may fish or launch a canoe. Only three other areas in the world have these 'coastal dune lakes' that connect to the ocean through the sand dunes. This shallow channel makes a safe area where young children can play for hours in very shallow water.
