About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Queen Sleeper Sofa, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Our home has been updated as of February, 2016. This includes new carpet, new interior paint, new furnishings and new mattresses for the three top floor bedrooms (2 kings and 1 queen).

You're only seconds from the beach and the water at this great vacation home. The house is directly in front of the dunes of Sunrise beach!

This is a three-story home with a large, open floor plan (living room, kitchen, dining area) on the second level and three large bedrooms on the top level (2 kings and 1 queen bed). The master bedroom has a large closet and spacious bathroom. On the first floor, there is a large bunk room and full bath with access to the back patio and the beach. Additionally, on the middle floor, there is a small bedroom with one bunk bed, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

The house has two decks, one opening from the living room, and other off the master bedroom. Plenty of chairs are provided for watching the sunset and sunrise and for relaxing and enjoying the view.

Sunrise Beach is near Gulf Place and Ed Walline State Park, which is not overcrowded like other locations on 30A. There are restaurants, coffee shops, Yolo shop, and boutiques all within safe, easy walking distance of our front door.

Note: For virtual tour, look for link under 'Links to more information' below.

Magnificent Gulf front vacation choice is a Florida cottage style home in the popular, gated, Sunrise Beach subdivision of Santa Rosa Beach, along scenic Highway 30A. This is a Gulf-front home (right behind the dunes of Sunrise beach), with direct access to the Gulf and its emerald waters. Loaded with amenities for the vacationer eager for fun and peace of mind.

One of our recent renters left this assessment in our Guestbook: 'What a view! This is the best beach home we've ever leased. The kitchen is so well stocked. This is the very best yet. Thanks.'

About Anthony Skjellum

We are a family of four that loves the beach. We like Sunrise beach because the beach in front of our home is beautiful, because the community is gated and quiet, and because it is very close to amenities like Gulf Place.

Anthony Skjellum purchased this house in 2004

Why Anthony Skjellum chose Santa Rosa Beach

The beach is super! The Sunrise Beach community is private, calm, and minutes away from everything on 30A and beyond. This gated community has beach accesses used only by the 40 or so homes in the gated community.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful views, ocean breeze. The full kitchen and beach/ocean views from the Living room and master bedroom...

Beautiful gated neighborhood. 30A is so quiet. House is great and had plenty of space for the 11 we had in our crew. Perfect home for family reunion or large family...we will be back!!!

Great house, if you want to have fun

  • 5 of 5

The Sunrise Beach house is a fantastic place to rent if you want a true beach experience. The house itself is totally geared to kids, especially if there are lots of them, in that they can all sleep in the "barracks in the basement." Our kids loved it. Parents loved it too since they were upstairs and it remained quiet when we went to bed. Location of house is close to everything one could need. Best part is that it is on the beach. Walk out the basement door and you are on the loveliest sandy beach I've ever been on. Comfy and spacious, we would rent this house again without reservations.

Seaward at Sunrise was the best rental we have stayed at on 30A and Panama City beach since we began coming twice a year 12 years ago! Tony was more than accomadating! It was very refreshing dealing with a property owner that was obviously concerned about our stay! We had a large group of family with small children to adults, and this home was most perfect. The mattresses were the most comfortable we have ever slept on, just like home! The private beach and walkout is awesome, steps from the house, where you listen to the surf with the windows shut, all night! Our first time in a gated community, and we plan on making that a requirement. Within 10 minutes of Destin, 20'to Panama City, close to multiple restaurants and hotspots. From The carpets to the rooms and bathrooms and kitchen are beautifully decorated, like brand new! Greatest place on the beach! We plan to return every year! Thank you, Tony, for a wonderful vacation! It can't get any better than Seaward at Sunrise!
