About the property

Ever wonder about 30A? If you've never been, but keep hearing about it then this is the home to stay in for your family vacation!

30A Seacrest Beach is close to everything, but without the price tag. Our vacation home "Bella Fortuna of Seacrest Beach" is a five star family home for a reason and now it's your time to visit us.

Walking into Bella Fortuna you'll feel comforted immediately and it will become your forever Seacrest Beach vacation home. Bella is literally steps from the Seacrest Beach shops and located right in the front of the neighborhood so you'll be a quick stroll to Rosemary Beach too!

Located right next to Rosemary Beach's fine dining and causal town center atmosphere, along with free access to the amazing 12,000 square foot lagoon pool and where you and your family may relax on vacation.


Bella Fortuna's Highlights:

- Bedroom on main (Queen and Twin)

- Gourmet kitchen with beautiful granite counter tops.

- Call the tram up until 5pm and be picked up right at your front door! The tram will take you to the 12,000 sq ft pool or to the beach and pick you back up (Complimentary)

The location is perfect for families wanting to get out and enjoy the day! You can walk to the shops of the Village of South Walton, grab an ice cream cone at the local candy store and hit Rosemary Beach's town center all within minutes of one another. You are within a short walking distance to Scenic Hwy 30A.

Bella is within the private family friendly community of Seacrest Beach, which is nestled between Rosemary Beach & Alys Beach plus it's about 15 minutes from Seaside, WaterColor and WaterSound. All very well known areas to explore for a day while biking, shopping, and grabbing food and drink! ((If you're looking to head to Destin and Panama City Beach, then it's about 20 minutes from Bella Fortuna.))

Why this location? For one, the tram is a front door service to all that stay in Bella Fortuna. With deeded Beach access a simple quick call will get you picked up at the door by the Seacrest Beach Shuttle and drop you off at the beach! Or, the Seacrest Beach Shuttle can take you and your family to the infamous 12,000 square foot lagoon pool. It's 12,000 square feet with multi layers, waterfalls, fountains, 2 bath houses, and plenty of lounge chairs are provided around the pool.

The main level of the home is designed in an open floor plan with a dining room that seats up to ten on one side and a living area that includes a very large mounted flat screen TV and small DVD library, on the other side. The living room is spacious and the furniture comfortable.

The main floor also houses a comfortable queen bedroom that is located down the hallway and has a queen bed centered in the room with an added twin bed for additional sleepers. A flat screen is mounted in the corner and a large walk in closet holds plenty of vacationer's clothing and other items. This bedroom shares a bathroom on this level and a private entry walkout to the patio.

The patio is a good spot for grilling out and the kitchen is well stocked for making your family all kinds of goodies! The laundry room is also located on the main floor with a separate washer and dryer.

Walking up the stairs to the second level you will locate 2 bedrooms. Off to the left is the second queen bedroom with a new bunk bed (twin over full with trundle) and a queen bed and off to the right is your master king bedroom with a very large walk in closet and a private balcony with outside seating. Inside the king master suite you will see a flat screen TV and luxury bath with a separate shower and double vanity sinks.

The top third floor of Bella Fortuna is a beautiful fun loft area-perfect for teens or kids. It has a trundle sofa bed along, flat screen TV, and a shared powder room bath. It's also the entry way to the large entertaining space of the balcony.

The large entertaining balcony has lots of seating and a wet bar to make a drink, and families that love to entertain their friends will chat up here for hours!!

Seacrest Beach is an amazing community that allows for friendly neighbor chats, a free seasonal beach shuttle, private deeded beach access, biking paths that go on for miles, shaded areas for picnics, and it's right next to Rosemary Beach. The town center of Rosemary shouldn't be over looked when in Seacrest Beach!

Rosemary’s town center is filled with dining and shopping. Guest's favorite and ours is Tapas LeCreme and Chocolate in the town center. Some other favorites are when visiting you should hit Grayton Beach and dine at The Red Bar, or while passing Seagrove Beach towards Seaside off of 30A you stop in Café Thirty A (5-6 two for 1 deals).

Seaside, Seagrove, Watercolor, Watersound only minutes away. Camp Creek, Hombre, Bay Point are a few of the golf courses in the area. Silver Sands Outlet Mall and Baytowne Wharf, located in Sandestin is 25 miles West. Brand new 'Pier Park' in Panama City Beach is 10 miles East.

Why Patty chose Seacrest

South Walton is a beautiful area for families with younger and older members awaiting your visit to make those wonderful beach memories that all families desire. Our home is the perfect location to make those memories.

What better way to relax than lounging around a 12,000 square foot lagoon style pool? Or, pack a picnic lunch and sit in the landscaped surroundings under a shady tree, read a book and escape.

Absolute great location. House was spacious. Only issue we had was there were not enough towels and washcloths for baths. We had to buy some.

wonderful home in a great community

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this home. It is situated in a great location and we rarely used the car to get anywhere once we arrived. Short walk to beach, shops, and dining. It is a spacious home with plenty of indoor and outdoor gathering spots to get together for eating and playing as a family. I, personally, spent a lot of time up on the third floor balcony. It's not really a balcony at all, it's an outdoor living room with a great view and it's covered so even the couple of times that it rained we would go up there and have a couple drinks and play cards and enjoy the rain. It was priced attractively for the off season and I would recommend it to anyone. The owner was attentive to any requests and was pleasant to deal with. It was our first time in this particular neck of the woods and we will be back and will hope the property is available.

Owner's Response: We adore your review of Bella Fortuna! Especially how you describe the upstairs "balcony" living room. We couldn't agree with you more that it is the perfect family home in the location of Seacrest Beach which is very close to Rosemary Beach and walking distance to shops and dining. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we look forward to having you again!

Great location, No frills property

  • 3 of 5

Bella Fortuna is in a great location, just behind Peddler's Village. Easy walk to Rosemary Beach and Seacrest Beach! The house itself is very nice, with comfortable furnishings. Amenities though are a bit lacking: bring your own trash bags, extra paper towels and toilet paper. We ran out of all with 3 adults and 2 kids. Bikes were not accessible (they were locked). Dishes and pots/pans were older, there is basic cable TV, etc. Overall, it was a comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of our private home (non-hotel) in Seacrest Beach. We are so pleased that you had a nice time at Bella Fortuna. The location is perfect as mentioned and most guest sign a bike waiver before or after arriving so they may use the bikes. Since this party did not sign the bike waiver then we can not give the code to release them for their own safety. Bella Fortuna is a favorite among families that want to make memories at the beach and not need the hassle of their cars. Park your car in the driveway and jump on the bike to the pools, Rosemary Beach, trails of 30a, and so much more! At night at the village dance tonight away to local music after enjoying a family dinner at one of the close by restaurants.

We have to stay here again!!

  • 5 of 5

Bella fortuna, just like the other guests leaving 5 stars, is right for the money and location! Location Location Location. It's right behind the shops of Seacrest and dining. My daughters loved being able to walk to Rosemary in minutes with her friends. The house has lots of space for a family of 8 traveling with friends. This is now our favorite home!!!

Wonderful time! beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent six days, seven nights here. House was gorgeous and easy to find. Enough parking for three cars. Decor was classy and fresh. Master bedroom was very ample and master bath was great. Everyone, from the youngest (2.5 yo) to the oldest (64yo) had a wonderful time. We spent time at the beach and pool, rode bikes all around town, cooked many delicious meals, celebrated a high school graduation and birthday, and just in general spent a lot of time together. We never felt like we were on top of each other and everyone had enough space to move around and have privacy. Backyard was great and my 5yo loved playing "bartender" in the tiki hut, haha. We were able to grill out twice. Lots of chairs to take to beach as well as a couple of toys. Kitchen was decently equipped but make sure to bring all condiments, including salt and pepper. Also no hand soaps so make sure to bring that too!

Our only "complaint", and this has nothing to do with this gorgeous house, is the fact that the beach we could access through the rental was absolutely packed every single day with the chair/umbrella rentals. We were literally four rows BACK from the beach. If you wanted to get closer to the beach, you had to walk over wayyyy to the right to get a good spot. And I believe this was due to the houses behind being in construction--not sure what the situation will be next year. So you pretty much HAVE to use the chair/umbrella rental ($45 a day, even if you are back on the third row) if you want to get any kind of glimpse of the ocean.

Another thing is that there is no recycling here (or in 30A for that matter!). We recycle religiously so this was kind of a pain and we ended up filling up the back of our mini van with recycle we brought home to take to the recycle center. Really wish they would start a recycling service here!

Overall we had an amazing time and would love to come back and make this our annual spot for family vacations!

Owner's Response: This family did it right and enjoyed everything that the home has to offer! The new grill and new patio table and deck is a welcome addition of Bella. There are plenty of homes in Seacrest, most are overcrowded and you feel it upon the walking in, however at this bella home located at the back of the Village, it features ample space to walk freely through each room and not bump into furniture. Each guest can spread out and has space to call their own!

Beautiful house!!

  • 5 of 5

We walked to just about everything! This was over fifth time here in Seacrest Beach and Patty was quick to respond with our questions of where to eat, what to do, etc. Other homes were nice that we stayed in, but Bella felt comfortable and seemed to fit us just right!! There is a welcome book but my husband likes to chat management up... lol. So, we kept bothering her, but she was very nice and full of information for us and our friends. I am recommending this house and we are planning our 2017 trip soon.
