**** FRANGISTA BEACH PROPERTIES ****

Above the surf and sand of the world’s most beautiful beaches is your vacation oasis, Above The Surf, where walls of windows bring the shimmer and sparkle of the azure Gulf waters inside. Perfect for family gatherings, this home offers guests a Gulf front retreat in the quiet, Old Florida neighborhood of Gulf Pines in Miramar Beach. From the elegantly appointed and professionally decorated interior to unobstructed views of the sunset from the hot tub, this 5 bedroom, 5 bath Mediterranean home sleeps up to 16 people, and has over 4,000 square feet of luxury for every member of the family. Above The Surf, located directly on the beach and nestled between the dining, shopping and entertainment of Sandestin Resort and the unparalleled shopping at Silver Sands Premium Outlet Mall, gives everyone something to enjoy while fishing in the neighborhood lake.

The ground floor, a haven for teen travelers, sleeps 8. The Gulf-front family room has a leather sleeper sofa sectional and a 50” TV and DVD player featuring surround sound and zoned audio system, providing the younger set with an entertainment area of their own. The adjoining bunk room features two sets of built-in triple bunk beds, reminiscent of train travel, as well as dual 40” TVs – one for enjoying movies, while the gaming enthusiasts can battle on the Xbox/DVD gaming system. Stepping out onto the lower sun deck, guests can enjoy gorgeous sunsets from the oversized hot tub under the pergola, or grill their fresh catch of the day on the gas grill. The deck also has a private gated outdoor shower, perfect for getting sand out of bathing suits before an evening of crabbing on the 1200' beach. There is also a two-car garage on the ground level.

The second floor main level which sleeps 4 guests features an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen for the culinary enthusiast, including stainless steel appliances, glass-tiled backsplash, granite countertops, and kitchen island, providing seating for 5 early birds to enjoy breakfast and activity planning. An additional refrigerator in the pantry and icemaker insure the beverage of choice on a hot summer day will be served ice cold. Views of the Gulf are exceptional from the dining area where the table, constructed of wooden beams salvaged from a British warehouse, comfortably seats 12. In the living area, the entire family can catch the latest game on the 65” 3D TV and audio system from either of the two premium leather sofas or additional armchairs. A covered porch directly off of the living area is the perfect place for an afternoon nap following beach time, and the glass balustrade reveals unobstructed views of the emerald surf. The king bedroom on this level offers a 40” flat screen TV/DVD player, full bathroom, and room darkening Roman shades for light sleepers. There is also a queen bedroom on this level, complete with full bath and 32” flat screen TV/DVD player.

Located on the third floor which sleeps 4 guests, the king master bedroom’s private balcony offers a respite with a glass balustrade for unimpeded Gulf views outdoors, while the Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom provides a welcome place to unwind indoors. A desk with internet connection and sitting area provides a place for vacationing executives to connect with the office while in paradise. Room darkening Roman shades contribute to the privacy, and there is another 50” flat screen TV in the bedroom. An additional king bedroom /with full bath and 40” flat screen TV with DVD player enhances the third level.

The private residential elevator in this home is locked off and is made available only to persons with a legitimate medical condition.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the property. Best kitchen we've ever had. Only two things wrong. Both can openers didn't work and coffee table on main deck was literally falling apart. We vacation on east coast mainly but when coming to the gulf would stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

We just returned home, and are already missing surf-on gulf. The location could not have been any more perfect; it was practically a private beach. The home is stunning and has the most gorgeous views. There were ten people in our group, and we had plenty of space and were very comfortable. The management company is top notch, and the owner, William, could not have been any nicer. We had a minor issue with a smoke detector going off (due to a low battery), and he was out to fix it within a half hour. If you're on the fence, BOOK IT NOW - you won't be disappointed. We are already planning our next return.

Reviewer Comments:

Truly one of the best houses that we've rented in the area - very spacious and plenty of room for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked. The only draw back was that the wi-fi was spotty and intermittent which was a bit aggravating.

Map

Above the Surf is located minutes from the largest outlet mall, Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin Beach Resort, theaters, restaurants and scenic drives.

Gulf Pines community is quiet with mostly full time residents, perfect for getting away from it all but being close to everything.
