Property description

Tortuga Torre (Turtle Tower) is a spacious, 3 story villa with great ocean views just 100 yards from the beach in the Sunset Beach neighborhood of Seacrest. Sunset Beach is on the south (Gulf) side of Scenic Highway 30A at Seacrest so there are no roads to cross on the short stroll between the villa and the beach, where there are gulf front showers and private restrooms. The neighborhood is gated and there is a terrific ocean front heated pool.

Sunset Beach is a small, beautifully landscaped neighborhood nestled between the Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach developments on Scenic Highway 30A in Walton County, Florida, between Destin and Panama City Beach.

The villa is only 300 yards from each of Alys Beach to the west and Rosemary Beach to the east. Alys and Rosemary abound with restaurants, coffee houses, taverns and unique shops.

This spectacular 3 bedroom, 4 bath villa has views of the Gulf of Mexico from all decks. The home has beautiful oak hardwoods and travertine flooring throughout, custom cabinets with granite countertops, 10'0 ceilings, top of the line stainless KitchenAid and Bosch appliances, icemaker and gas grill. Other features include a 2 car garage and over 500 sq. ft. of porches and decks.

First floor bedroom with private bath has a queen sized bed, second floor living area has queen sized sleeper sofa and a full bath, third floor bedroom with private bath has two twin sized bed and master suite has a king sized bed as well as a twin sized sleeper sofa. The master bath has double vanity, jacuzzi tub and large walk-in shower.

Just a 5 minute drive away are new supermarkets (Publix and Marketplace), banks and Pier Park with shopping, new restaurants and movie theatres. The new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport is only 20 minutes away and has service by Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines. Enjoy the 17 miles of bike and walking paths along Scenic 30A or play a round of golf at one of the area's premier golf clubs, the Tom Fazio designed Camp Creek Golf Course, which is about one mile away.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: We purchased our home in the Sunset Beach community as a place to bring our family with three children together. We especially love the biking along 30A. But most of all, we like sitting with friends on the breezy porch with a glass of wine watching the sunset while our daughter makes the entire family laugh at her goofy stories.

Why Seacrest, FL, USA:
Sunset Beach offers the convenience of being next door to Rosemary and Alys beaches but it is much closer to the beach and offers more living space than any comparably priced (if there are any) homes in those developments. The ocean front pool and easy parking are big pluses too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our villa has lots of living space, plenty of bathrooms for a family, close beach and pool access and lot's of unique restaurants, stores and amenities within walking distance. Modern civilization, with big grocers, malls, waterparks and golf, is just a 10 minute drive away.
