About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 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. One which has just been completed. Beach chairs, towels and bag are available for use during your stay. Our beach access is located across the street and down a little ways so I 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. Their is also new 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....

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. 12 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 Beaches of South Walton

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 and the 12,000 square foot Seacrest pool. How convenient! Walking to Rosemary Beach for breakfast, lunch or dinner, shopping or going to the spa. Love the restaurants in the village. 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

5 minute walk to our Seacrest pool

0 minute walk to shop and restaurants.

Clean, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I met for a girls getaway and to celebrate my Birthday and we were not disappointed! Perfect studio apartment for two, great location, clean and walkable or a bicycle to everything. The owner was wonderful, very responsive and my daughter accidentally left all of her necklaces. I contacted the owner who in turned contacted her cleaning person and found my daughter's necklaces and mailed them all back to her. I highly recommend this studio apartment!

Great Condo in Seacrest Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo was awesome with everything we needed for our 4 day stay! It was clean and decorated beautifully! The location for my daughter and me! It was in a great location with the beach, shopping and restaurants just a short walk away from the condo. We took the tram several times to the beach which was really nice and convenient! Wonderful getaway and would most definitely stay here again. Sue was wonderful and very responsive to all my questions.

We booked the condo on one days notice and found Sue extremely responsive and helpful in helping us get our last minute trip put together. The directions were spot on and the location was fantastic. The shuttle to/from the beach was just across the parking lot and very easy to use and never waited more than 5 minutes. The room was perfect for 2. It was clean and comfortable and the bed was fantastic. It was a very easy walk to Rosemary and Alys beaches/shops/dining. We will be back!

Perfect romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently had a baby and wanted some time to ourselves, so as my little one spent a few days with Nana, we took a trip to Rosemary and stayed at Pura Vida. This location was perfect - close to restaurants, bike rentals, lagoon pool, etc. The room was very clean, well stocked, and aesthetically pleasing. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous perfect condo in Seacrest near Rosemary Beach, FL

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling condo with a mini kitchen and cozy seating area adjacent from a comfy luxurious bed. The grounds and pools are lovely and it was fun having shops and restaurants right there. The beach is across the street and the village of Rosemary Beach is in walking distance with so many restaurants and shops. This was a perfect getaway for two. The owner, Sue, made it a joy. We can't wait to go back.
