About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Above The Palms - Ocean View - 30A

Relax on the upper deck with a drink and your loved one while watching the spectacular sunsets over the gulf.

This 3 bedroom house is about a 7 minute walk to the beach in the gated Calypso Pointe community. Calypso Pointe is a quaint, peaceful neighborhood with only 34 houses. It is family friendly with a community pool and easy access to the beach. Above the Palms has 3 decks for privacy and ample parking for 4 cars. Our home is very spacious and each bedroom has its own bathroom. The second and third floors are covered with hardwood floors. In the living room and in one bedroom we have 40 inch flat screen TVs. Scenic 30A bike path right outside the entrance of the neighborhood.

We fell in love with the community and Santa Rosa. When we saw the view of the ocean from the 3rd floor balcony, we knew we had to buy this house.

Sun and fun on 30A

  • 5 of 5

Above the Palms was a wonderful place to call home during our 6 day stay. We were immediately charmed by the quiet gated community of Calypso and the location of the house which was a short walk to the pool.

The house itself had everything we needed—comfortable living room furniture, a large kitchen table with ample seating and a washer and dryer on the main level. The kitchen was well stocked with every kind of culinary tool that you can think of. The ice maker on the fridge was an added bonus!

The rocking chair front porch was a nice spot to relax but our favorite spot was on the third floor deck with beautiful views of the ocean.

The bedrooms were a nicr size and the beds were comfortable. The air conditioning also works great throughout the house!

The beach is a short walk away and be sure to check out our new favorite restaurant Shunk Gulley with live music and views of the ocean from the upstairs deck. Bring your bikes so you can cruise around the Santa Rosa area. Dinner at the Vue (1 min drive away) was the perfect place to sit out and watch the sunset.

Thanks Danielle for your quick responses and all your help! We can’t wait to go back and stay at your beach house!

Great House with all the comforts you need and great views from the 3rd floor balcony.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the house. Was convenient to local shopping and restaurants. Was a few extra steps to the beach, but nothing that wasn’t manageable. Would recommend staying here.

Home needs upkeep & deep cleaning

  • 2 of 5

We recently stayed 4 nights here over the Christmas holidays, but I must admit we were pretty let down by the home. The pictures and specific angles of how they were taken can be a little deceiving. The first floor ‘queen’ bedroom was very bare, comforter looked old/dirty, and the bed looked more like a full. The house definitely needs some work/necessary upkeep and a good deep cleaning. Many windows were covered with a permanent fog. New linens and a little TLC would go a long way, too, if the owners would invest a little time and effort. The house was once beautiful but just has not been maintained well. Not a horrible experience, but we will not rent this house again.

P.S. Be sure to bring your own cleaning supplies, soap, paper products.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We just returned from the house. We replaced all the comforters and bought new towels and sheets. We also painted some and fixed both the second and third floor decks.
