About the Property

Beachy Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

If the “Secret of life is enjoying the passage of time,” (to quote James Taylor) then it is our hope that you will be able to do just that when you stay at our condo on Seagrove Beach. You will find yourself relaxing when you walk into our roomy kitchen and family room and see the beautiful sparkling water of the Gulf of Mexico.

The ten foot ceilings of our top floor unit (406A) give you a feeling of spaciousness you will love. You can see the gulf water shimmering from the private 4th floor kitchen, family room, master bedroom and even the master shower! The view of the beautiful pool area and the gulf off of the large balcony is just wonderful. We have bar height furniture on the porch for you to see right over the railing and out to the beautiful view. We also have two chaise lounge chairs. Bring your binoculars to watch the dolphins swim by in the gulf as you sip your coffee!

We have decorated our condo on the coast with cool blue, aqua and yellow to bring the beach inside to you even when you can’t be "out there." The kitchen has been updated with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and is well equipped with new cookware and many extras including crock pot, rice cooker, and spice rack for those who like the conveniences of home while on vacation. There is also a sideboard in the kitchen for added storage of your kitchen items. You won’t mind cooking in when you can see the beautiful Gulf of Mexico shimmering from the kitchen! The dining area has a six seat dining table with two bar stools, giving guests plenty of seating at meal time. Our family room has a new flat screen 46' tv, and a DVD player.

Wireless is complimentary.

Our condo sleeps 6 comfortably. The master bedroom is quite large and has a king size bed. In the master there is also a sitting area and if you just have to get a little work done while you are here at the beach, we have a desk there for you to set up shop!
Just off of the master is a sitting area with eight foot sliding glass doors to the huge balcony that overlooks the two giant pools and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. In the master there is a 26 inch flat screen TV with DVD player. The master bath has a large glassed in shower, jacuzzi tub and hair dryer.

The guest bedroom has a queen size bed, a flat screen TV with DVD player and is connected to the guest bathroom. The cozy twin size bunk alcove, not in the hallway, has a full length privacy curtain.

The Dunes of Seagrove has a fantastic 7,500 sq. ft. lagoon multi-level swimming pool with water fall and hot tub, a tennis court, fitness center, steam and sauna room, and a charcoal grilling area for family cookouts. And the gulf is just about 30 yards over the dune.

There is so much to do while visiting our condo. Relax on the beach or walk over to Deer Lake State Park. Work out at the fitness center, play tennis, eat at one of our quaint, local restaurants. Or you can take a bike ride down the bike path on 30A east to Seaside Village and Grayton Beach or west to Alys and Rosemary Beaches. Movie theaters and shopping malls are available in Destin and Panama City, but we hope you take the time to relax and recharge right here on our porch while you watch and listen to the surf.

The Dunes of Seagrove will amaze you with its peace and serenity and before you know it you will have enjoyed the passage of your time and too soon it will be time to leave.

Please see our rates below. Half of the rate is due to reserve the unit, the balance is due 45 days before arrival. There is also a $250.00 damage deposit due with the last payment. We just hold it and return that check to you after the rental period as long as nothing is damaged or missing from the unit. Our unit is rented from Saturday to Saturday only during spring and summer.

Sorry: No Smoking, No Pets, and no vacationing students. You must be 25 to rent.

If you are looking for a great family vacation in Florida, this is it! We work hard to make our condo comfortable and family friendly - a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful white sand beaches of our little piece of paradise!
The Secret of Life is enjoying the passage of time.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We have lived in Peachtree City, Georgia in the south metro Atlanta area for over 27 years and have loved having the Gulf coast only 5 1/2 hours away by car.

Why the Owner Chose Seagrove Beach, FL, USA:
Our family has been coming to the Gulf coast area for over 30 years but once we 'found' Dunes of Seagrove a little over 14 years ago we could not go anywhere else! Birthdays, anniversaries, special occasions and just family time are that much more special for us here. We bought our condo here at Dunes of Seagrove in May of 2010. We have added many extras to our condo that we always looked for when we rented and now we are happy to share our special home away at the beach with you!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Even when we are not on the beach we feel like we are, the view is so beautiful. And access to the beach is so easy. It is right there in front of the pool. We especially love Dunes of Seagrove for its location right next to Deer Lake State Park. Walk east down the beach about 100 yards and you are standing in some of the most beautiful untouched dunes in the area. It is a nature lover’s paradise. And what a great neighbor! We also love renting bikes and exploring the different little beach towns and neighborhoods along 30A.
