About the property

Cozy Studio for 2

Enjoy Pura Vida, 'The Good Life' at this stunning upscale studio condo in the European style complex, 'The Village'. Located next door to Rosemary Beach and a quick bike ride to Alys Beach, this is THE BEST location on 30A .

The beautiful blue green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the white sandy beaches are some of the finest in the world. The Villages has two pools on the property. Beach chairs, towels and bag are available for use during your stay. Our beach access is located at Sunset Beach which is across the street and down a little ways. I HIGHLY recommend you taking the tram the first time so you will know where it is located. wristbands are needed for entrance to the beach. Each community has their own access.

Pura Vida has everything you need to relax and enjoy your vacation. Coffee pot and toaster for morning coffee. Wine and martini glasses are available for your afternoon cocktail. A microwave and mini refrigerator are there for you. A bistro table and comfy chairs are there for your relaxation, along with a 32' HDTV and a stereo where you can enjoy your own ipod. Down comforter and pillows make for a wonderful night sleep...

Seacrest Sundries is located on the property with wi-fi availability, friendly owners and a good cup of coffee. The also have a small grocery store for items you may need. Their is also locations for coffee, cocktails and food in Peddlars Pavillion located in the green space in front of the condos. There are many restaurants within walking distance. Several located in The Village. Nightly musicians playing in the Peddlers Pavillion during the season.... it is a lively and fun place for entertainment. Bicycle rentals are also located on site

This studio is best suited for 2 adults. As much as I love children I have a 'No Children' Policy.

Holiday weekends have a minimum of 4 nights.

Take a look at the pictures below and you will know that Pura Vida is where you want to stay..... I am always available for any questions you may have!!

Special Note: I manage my condo and do all of the rentals myself. I do have my own cleaning crew that watches after Pura Vida and cleans after each guest. My linens are cleaned only for my unit and I change them up a lot. What this means is that my linens have not been put in with a huge group of rentals and moved from unit to unit...... This makes me feel better and if you are picky like me it will you too!!

You can go to Pura Vida. Vrbo#184414 on Facebook which will show you the shops, etc. in The Villages!!

About Sue Hale

Growing up in the South Georgia town of Bainbridge,I spent my spring breaks and summers vacationing on the panhandle of Florida. Naturally, I have always loved the beach. My parents had a townhome on the panhandle so my children also grew up vacationing on the Gulf of Mexico.I have lived in Atlanta for the past 34 years. . My husband and family are all in the commercial real estate business. 13 years ago we decided to invest in a home in Seagrove Beach. We have since relocated to Watersound Origins. We enjoy having our two grandsons vacation with us. Living in Atlanta and growing up in Bainbridge, 30A seems to encompass a little of both worlds. I love both the gourmet and casual seafood restaurants,watching the sunset at Bud and Alley's, the art galleries, shopping and the beautiful white sandy beaches, but all with a small town feel. I love every minute of the time that I love every minute of the time I spend on 30A. . Nine years ago, I bought my studio in The Villages. I have always been very selective of the decor of the vacation homes that I have rented for my own vacations through the years. I tried to decorate Pura Vida with this thought in mind. Is it somewhere I would want to stay? Absolutely!

Sue Hale purchased this condo in 2007

Why Sue Hale chose Florida

The convenience of 'The Village' being right I n the center of two of my "many" favorite villages on 30A. Seacrest has shops, restaurant and outdoor entertainment. Rosemary next door couldn't get any closer. Wonderful for shopping, dining and going to the spa. Alys Beach is just a short bicycle ride down 30A. The architecture and beauty of Alys Beach is world class. I feel lucky just knowing that I am an owner in such a beautiful area.

What makes this condo unique

Tram service to beach access. How convenient! Walking to Rosemary Beach for breakfast, lunch or dinner, shopping or going to the spa. Love the restaurants and shopping in The Village. We have everything you need right here on the property. Acme Ice Bar to watch sports and have a beer or cocktail and good food and La Cocina for a margarita and mexican food. Pizza, coffee, yogurt, more coming every day ...You can also rent a bicycle on the property! There is a sundries shop on the property where you can get anything from tylenol to tanning supplies. It also has wi-fi.. We now have many trendy shops that you can visit. The friendly atmosphere of the village is great for your vacation getaway!! Peddlars Pavillion has opened on the green in the front and there are several spots for cocktails and coffee, shrimp and a juice bar. There are occasional free concerts and lots of activity!!

From The Village it's a:

2 minute walk to Rosemary Beach

8 minute walk to Alys Beach

4 minute walk to our deeded beach access

0 minute walk to the village pool

0 minute walk to shop and restaurants.

Cozy, relaxing studio!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for opening your home up to others - I had a blast! The owner, Sue, was extremely helpful. She replied within 30 minutes of my inquiry and helped make my last minute getaway idea a reality. She was also very nice to make arrangements with. The studio is close to everything! Also you have the worlds most comfy bed! I didn't want to get up!

Thanks again,

Can't beat the price of staying in this adorable studio in the heart of everything!

  • 5 of 5

The Studio was very charming. Perfect for 2 people, my hubby and I took a quick getaway away from the kids. The Villages are really nice and have great shops and pools. It's nice that Sue provides you beach chairs because to rent 2 beach chairs, the cost is $55.00. Her studio is filled with everything you need. She really doesn't miss a beat. This unit is situated right above La Cocina which is a great place for drinks and food. Renting bikes are a must! We biked 10 miles and stopped at the HUB for lunch -outside eating/bar area -really cool! Rosemary Beach is right down the street and offers great restaurants. Cowgirls cafe and La Crema were wonderful! There were a TON of kids/teenagers there (didn't realize that it was a big Spring Break week). Overall we had a good time and would definitely return to Seacrest Beach with the kids next time!! Thanks Sue!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. I was worried when I heard how many spring breakers arrived to the area. Glad you enjoyed. Bikes are a must to be able to see other areas. Glad you will be back with kids but when you need a getaway without , come back !!!

Great last minute beach escape

  • 4 of 5

Sue has a wonderful place perfect for two! Little kitchenette for coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. Size was cozy but comfortable. The host was very responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. Location is perfect for those that want to park the car and walk/bike everywhere.

We live in Destin and wanted to get away for the weekend. This one bedroom was perfect and centrally located to everything. Owner was very responsive and the unit was in great shape. I don't think there is a better bang for the buck in this area and we will definitely be back.
