About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms with Sleeping Alcove and Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 12)

This beautiful, high quality home is completely decorated with stylish, comfortable furnishings to make each beach vacation memorable. It is located in beautiful Seacrest Beach with its majestic 12,000 square foot resort-like pool with its beautiful palms and tile work. The white sand beach at Seacrest is wide with plenty of space for all guests to have room to relax in peace, fish, play sports on the beach or whatever they please!

Seacrest is a wonderful family-oriented area of Florida cottages on streets lined with palm trees and luscious landscaping and brightly colored homes surrounding the pool, and within a short walk, or ride in complimentary, chauffeured golf carts to the beautiful white sand beaches with emerald green waters.

Heavenly Sunshine, aptly named because of its beautiful golden yellow color, has hardwood floors throughout the living areas with tile floors in the bathrooms. Private porches with comfortable, outdoor seating are off each bedroom of each level and off the living area where there is also an outdoor dining area and gas grill.

The house sleeps 12 comfortably with one large bedroom downstairs with a king bed, three bedrooms on the second level with one king in the master bedroom, and a queen bed in each of the other two bedrooms. There is also a day bed in the alcove outside the master. In the tower, there is a set of bunk beds with terrific views of the Gulf.

The smoke-free and pet-free home has been professionally decorated with the highest quality of furnishings, plantation shutters on all windows and doors, granite counter tops, and upscale stainless appliances. Heavenly Sunshine also has televisions and DVD/VCR in all bedrooms and living area plus a surround sound, wireless internet and free long distance.

Heavenly Sunshine, the resort with its amenities and the white sand beach are a wonderful place to make lasting memories with family and friends.

Come enjoy the magic of Heavenly Sunshine!

About Stephanie Kotarski

We have an immediate family of 12 people (6 adults and 6 children) and this house fits us perfectly!

Why Stephanie Kotarski chose Beaches of South Walton

We have always loved the panhandle area of Florida and consequently went specifically to 30A with its pristine conditions and its great family atmosphere. We immediately fell in love with Seacrest and have returned year after year. It represents the best the Gulf has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Heavenly Sunshine is located directly behind Seacrest Village so the shops and restaurants of that Village are close at hand. Plus, the shops and restaurants of Rosemary Beach are only a couple of blocks away. The proximity to pool, beach and shops/restaurants makes Heavenly Sunshine one of the best located houses in Seacrest!

We have stayed in Heavenly Sunshine for three consecutive years for six weeks, beginning in January and ending in March. We couldn't be more pleased with all aspects of the house. In addition to a wonderful home with lovely furnishings, the location is superb. A brief walk takes you to the shops and restaurants of Rosemary Beach as well as to the beach. The owners are delightful to work with, always available, accommodating, and anxious to make your stay as enjoyable for you as they can. There are numerous homes and condos to rent in Seacrest Beach but Heavenly Sunshine is at the top!

Wonderful Home and Location

  • 4 of 5

With two master suites and a large kitchen/dining/family area, Heavenly Sunshine was the perfect destination for nine of us from two families. The home is clean and well appointed with solid furniture and ample cookery. Every bedroom has up-to-date bedding and access to a deck. And, the location is great, with short walks to shops, the pool and Gulf. I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Heavenly Sunshine to friends.

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful beach house for a large family or group! We had a great time at the big pool and on the seashore. We found that the house was perfect for my elderly mother - she enjoyed the main floor bedroom. Our favorite place was the large porch where we enjoyed the lovely weather.

The house was spotless when we arrived. Before I booked the house, I contacted the owner as a previous reviewer had commented on the cleanliness of the house. She assured me that the house would be clean and it was just as promised.

The only hiccup was that there is only one pool and beach pass for the entire house. Some of us wanted to go to the beach and others to the pool and that isn't easy with just one pass. With the help of the shuttle drivers we were able to go where we wanted.

Heavenly Sunshine is a fantastic place for a relaxing get away. Please don't book it for the week I want :)

Family Favorite

  • 5 of 5

We adore staying at Heavenly Sunshine! My family of 5, stayed here for the second year in a row and love the house and location. It is a great location to the shops, bike rentals and restaurants in Seacrest and Rosemary Beach. The home was clean and the management company very responsive to needs and request. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone traveling in the Fort Walton Beach area! Happy travels!

Good location in Seacrest Beach

  • 4 of 5

We just got back and had a wonderful week in Seacrest! Thank you for sharing your home.

Pros: The grill was GREAT! Perhaps the best grill I've used in a vacation rental before. We loved the location to the shops and to Rosemary. The tram service was very helpful, the kitchen was well stocked with plenty of cookware, lots of games for the kids, a nice TV and cable, very comfortable beds, lots of good seating downstairs for eating and hanging out.

Cons: the house just felt dirty. The rugs do shed and that style of rug does seem to trap a lot of sand/dirt and that is part of it, but overall, it just felt dirty. The couch cushions need a good vacuuming/cleaning, baseboards need to be wiped down, etc. ALSO: (this is my biggest "con"!): Having to go pick up a key at a location 10 miles away (not to mention drop it back off on your way out of town) is a huge pain. Every other rental we've stayed at in the last 5 years have converted to a keyless entry system. In a house this size, you're sure to have a large group staying there, so trying to share 2 keys among 12 people who are coming and going in different directions (beach vs. pool vs. shopping) is a challenge.

All that said, we were sad to leave! It was one of our best vacations!

P.S. The pool attendants take their job very seriously! :) Make sure you have your pool card with you when you go to the pool.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you had a wonderful vacation, and we are so glad that you enjoyed the various aspects of the house. It was great to talk to you about this. Again, we apologize for the shortcomings and are working to correct them. In particular, we are installing a lock box so that there is no need to travel to the management offices. We have spoken to the cleaning service about the cleaning issues and they have promised to address. You are correct that the jute rugs shed but we find them the best way to capture the sand so that it is not everywhere. Again, we appreciate your feedback and are so glad the problems did not undermine your holiday. Our best!
