Property description

This fantastic 6000 square foot beachfront home was purchased at the end of 2011, and we have completely remodeled and updated this now 7 bedroom/8.5 bath beach house. There are four stories, each having its own large balcony overlooking the Gulf. We have finally finished renovations and have posted updated pictures!!


Bedding Summary:
1st floor: Twin size bunk bed w/trundle, Full size bunk w/twin on top, 2 twin size beds
2nd floor: Two full size sleeper sofas
3rd floor: Two king size beds
4th floor: Four queen size beds

Martinis in the Sand is furnished as follows:

1st floor:
The lower level of the home features an open living/media area complete with two sets of bunks, one twin w/trundle, one full w/twin on top, and two twin beds. There is also a pool table, (2) 55" LED TVs, a side by side refrigerator, dishwasher, wet bar w/microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, etc. This floor also contains a laundry room with washer and dryer, and 2 bathrooms each with 2 showers and a toilet room. There is direct access to the backyard sand through a sliding glass door, as well as to our private dune walkover straight to the beach.

2nd floor:
The second floor open space living area contains a huge kitchen/dining area complete with 2 dual ice maker refrigerators, 2 stoves (each w/double ovens - one gas, one electric), 2 dishwashers, and an island bar area with seating for 6-8. All kitchen appliances are stainless steel KitchenAid (aside from the refrigerators which are Samsung). We have 2 dining tables with 16 total dining chairs, and also a dining area for 8 available on the balcony. We have a 47" flat screen over the bar counter, and a 65" flat screen in the living room along with a nice entertainment center and plenty of seating including a full size sleeper sofa. The second laundry room is also located on this floor, as well as a half bath and open foyer with a spiral staircase leading up to the third and fourth floors. This entire floor has an exquisite view of the Gulf through an entire wall of windows across the back. The balcony on this floor has stairs leading directly to the ground where you can easily put your feet in the sand and head directly out to the beach via our private dune walkover!

3rd floor:
The third floor is home to two spacious master suites, both with magnificent Gulf views, and each with a king size bed and chaise lounge. The largest of the two also has a sleeper sofa. Each of the Gulf front window walls have room darkening vertical blinds for those who love to sleep in, but direct access for those who might like to enjoy their morning coffee listening to the waves from the balcony. One of the suites has a 52" TV with handicap accessible bathroom. The other suite has a 55" TV with a large bathroom and garden tub. This floor has a common area with wet bar, microwave, coffeemaker, etc.

4th floor:
The top floor of this home features 4 bedrooms each furnished with a queen size bed and flat screen TVs ranging from 40" to 47''. Each of the rooms has its own full bath. There is a common access to the balcony, and two of the rooms actually have their own dedicated balcony access.

We have furnished our home with primarily Paula Deen furniture for that modern, yet comfortable setting.

The residential elevator accesses each floor from the ground level up, and the stairs spiral from the 2nd floor up to the 4th floor. We also have a two-car garage, and the community pool is only about a block away! We have a private dune walkover for direct access to the beach that we consider our backyard and a huge deck! For your convenience, we also have a high chair, stroller, child gate, etc.

We know you will fall in love with this beauty on the beach just as we did!
