Tired of the crowds and congestion on 30A? This awesome home comfortably sleeps 14-16 people in a truly fabulous location on the beach side of 30A. The three-story home features gulf views and is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood on a large corner lot South of 30A that is convenient to the beach, bike paths, restaurants and coffee shops.

LOCATION: The beach access is just steps away (150 yards) with no busy roads to cross and has showers too. This is a quiet residential neighborhood location without the crowds from condo’s or high density locations such as Seaside or Destin, but the location is also close enough to them that you can get there easily. When you are not at the beach, you can relax in the beautiful large landscaped yard that contains a large 32'X16' swimming pool that is spacious enough for large family gatherings. Walk across the street to the fresh seafood market and grill your dinner on the gas grill provided for your use.
