My wife and I visited Santa Rosa Beach several times over the years, and when one of the units (that we had stayed in) of Gulf Place Cabanas became available, we decided to buy it.

We wanted for our three young children (ages four, seven, and less-than-a-year) to have a place they could come for years, and remember fondly. We hope one day our condo becomes theirs.

We had also vacationed in Destin and Panama City Beach in the past. While both are charming in their own right, we just like to get away from it all, and not be where the beaches were so crowded.

Nevertheless, Destin and PCB are still just a short drive away from Santa Rosa Beach. They are nice spots to visit, just not as peaceful.

There is PLENTY to do in Santa Rosa Beach and along Highway 30-A if you'd rather not 'do' Destin or PCB.

You MUST visit Seaside and Rosemary Beach while you are here.

CHRIS purchased this condo in 2013

Why CHRIS chose Santa Rosa Beach

We bought this property in January of 2013. We are continuously making improvements and strive to be the BEST that the condo can be.

We are continuously updating our list of recommendations that we send each of our renters.

You will NOT regret staying here. You may even want to purchase a place here on the Emerald Coast, like we did !!

After all, we too are former renters here at this exact Gulf Place Cabanas condo.

Just in the past 3 1/2 years we've had guests from Alabama, Arkansas, Quebec-Canada, Saskatchewan-Canada, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, our home state of Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. We sincerely hope everyone enjoyed their stays on beautiful Highway 30A.

What makes this condo unique

* No more than probably 75 yards from the beach as the crow flies (140 yards walking-- it takes me around 155 steps from our oversized patio)

* SAFE-- we have never heard of any major violence in the area that you may see in larger towns. We've never heard or know of any crimes whatsoever, for that matter.

* The Greenway of Highway 30-A: you can bike the entire distance and really don't have to use your vehicle the entire week. I believe the Greenway is 18-miles long, not including the spur trails. If you do not have a bike, please take a stroll. Very relaxing and therapeutic.

* Plenty (a dozen or so) of restaurants within walking distance

* Publix Grocery less than 3 miles-- Wal-Mart Supercenter just 4 miles away.

* 3 pools, 2 tennis courts, shuffle board courts, 2 hot tubs, corn hole courts, 5 restaurants, shopping, spa, grills, drug store all on the Gulf Place property.

* Keyless entry to our unit

* FREE laundry

* Luggage carts to help arrival and departure

* FREE parking. 10-second walk to our patio !

* Public beach access just one-tenth of a mile (includes restroom/changing facilities, ramp, life guard, beach wheel chairs), and two other public beaches within a mile

* one of our owners- Carrie- loves consignment shopping and the Beaches of South Walton is a Mecca for great deals

* Several state parks within the area

* Mountain biking in Point Washington State Forest

* Bike rentals, beach chair, and water sports rentals within Gulf Place Town Center

* Royal Red Shrimp - get them at Publix (they will boil them for you) or at Shrimpers Seafood Market. If you've never tried Royal Reds, they are a MUST !

* Santa Rosa Beach was ranked among the 10 BEST BEACHES in the WORLD by Yahoo Travel.

* We strive to make our visitors' stay hassle free. We will answer any questions that you may have and send you recommendations to take some of the 'guess work' out of your vacation

* We love to go Deep Sea Fishing on the party boats at Destin Harbor. We highly

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great trip and wedding. Accommodations excellent. However my wife and I decided that we needed to tell you something.

We selected you as the best owner/host we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. And that's the truth. Thanks.

Get away from the hustle and bustle (and occasional bad traffic) of Destin and Panama City Beach. Santa Rosa Beach is the perfect place to come-- but close to both the nightlife, shopping, restaurants, and other activities that Destin and Panama City have to offer. Santa Rosa Beach is next to Miramar Beach & Sandestin and just down from Seaside and Watercolor. Santa Rosa Beach has a plethora of dining, shopping, and activities unto its own.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation staying here. The condo was equipped with everything we needed, great location near many amazing restaurants and activities, and a quiet, relaxing place to enjoy the beach with the family. Chris was a great host and always readily available if we were to need anything at all. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Alli, We are thrilled that you all had a wonderful vacation ! We love the de-stressing atmosphere of our area. But yet there are so many things to do & places to see within walking distance and/or a short drive (or bike). We always like to help our guests make the most out of their stay. I mean, we are vacationers with a young family too. We know how it is. We'd love for y'all to put your toes in the Santa Rosa Beach sand in the near future (-; Chris & Carrie Groce Owners Gulf Place Cabanas 110 (Fun in the Santa Rosa Beach Sun Condo)

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our family. The owner was very communicative and we appreciated his recommendations for dinners and places to visit. The condo was equipped with everything we needed. Including beach toys for the kids. Thanks Chris!

Wonderful Family Week At the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I took our 3 kids (9, 8 & 6) to Santa Rosa for & stayed here for the week! We really appreciated all the extras in the kitchen (plenty of cooking utensils, pans & pots. We've stayed at other Condos in the past with much less & have to buy items). Also there were some beach chairs & rafts provided which were appreciated. Chris the owner is so kind & quick to respond to all questions & very helpful in finding out information. It's obvious they do their best to accommodate guests, with the tight space it's pretty comfortable. We would've appreciated an extra comfortable seating option in the living room - but we spend most of our time out swimming & doing things so it didn't impact the enjoyment of our stay. We took advantage of the easy access to the beach & live how close to the pool we were. On Sunday we enjoyed the free concert at Gulf Place, Monday evening we ventured down to Rosemary Beach for another free concert (ABBA tribute band which was fun if you're a fan of Mama Mia). This is our second year in a row staying at Gulf Place & we do recommend it to all of our friends because of how close it is to the beach (closer than other Condos across 30A), the pools are nice & fun, plenty of other options for food & entertainment at Gulf Place. The Perfect Pig is excellent. Last year we got to do the 3rd Thursday Wine tasting a really fun night!

We can't say enough positive things about staying here - if you want budget friendly & relaxing beach stay! Look here.

Plus it's easy access to grocery store too. Totally calm & quiet compared to Destin which is too overwhelming & crowded. The beach is amazing (especially in July - last year in June we had June grass which was a pain).

Thank you again! We had a great stay! Who doesn't have fun & relax in Santa Rosa?

Owner's Response: Thanks for the awesome review, Rosie. We loved hosting you all. Over the years we have tried to add about everything one would need in the kitchen (pizza cutters, crock pot, George Foreman, corncob holders, etc). We generally get great feedback from our travelers, and they have helped us in stocking the essentials. I did tell my wife that we need to add a lemon zester (-; We get a lot of questions about the distance from our condo to the beach. It is around 100 steps from our covered back porch until our feet hit the sugar sand (approximately a 3-minute walk). We do have to cross Highway 30a (which has a speed limit of 25 MPH). There is a cross-walk with a sign, however, along with a dedicated beach access path owned by our condo association. Watch out for the little lizards !! We are actually down at the condo currently, and, after making two trips into Destin, are so thankful that the roads, restaurants, and beaches here in Santa Rosa Beach are a fraction of the crowds there. I think next time we will avoid Destin and its bumper-to-bumper traffic altogether. I would strongly suggest to future guests to limit their travel (once they get to Florida) to the Highway 30a and South Walton locales. Frankly, the food and scenery is better here. We just don't have the go-cart rides and stuff, but plenty to do and see. Rosemary Beach and Seaside are just a short drive, along with 4 state parks. Thanks again for your great review and we hope to speak to you guys in the near future. Chris Groce: Owner of Gulf Place Cabanas 110 (aka 'Fun in the Sun' Condo)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much T.M. !! We really appreciated you guys staying with us on short notice. It sounds like everything went well. We try to set up the condo as "our" home-away-from-home and we hope this translates over to our visitors. We ask for feedback for anything we have forgotten, or that the condo may need, and we seem to have established that after about a year of owning (we bought the condo in January 2013). We are constantly making upgrades, so much that at times it seems as if I rarely see the beach when we go down, but I enjoy doing it. I want our condo to look and feel as best as it can, and for our guests to experience that home-away-from-home sensation. We hope to host you all again, and thanks again for your wonderful review !! Chris Groce Owner Gulf Place Cabanas 110 P.S. My wife and kids get plenty of beach time while I'm working (-;

Perfect Beach Stay for Family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two small children loved this well-appointed condo with its many amenities, but the LOCATION was fantastic! The condo is located in a beautiful complex filled with shopping and restaurants that are within easy walking distance, and the beach is right across the street, only steps from the patio door! The owner went above and beyond to be helpful, (even sending us lists of local attractions and places to eat, as well as surf conditions during our stay), and is extremely accessible at all hours. Beach chairs, boogie boards and beach toys were provided for our use by the owner! We look forward to staying here again and recommend this property highly!

Owner's Response: Meredith, We really, really enjoyed having you all at our condo. We love that you can pretty much not use the car and walk to restaurant and shops. Heck, sometimes we just walk down the Greenway to restaurants such as Goatfeather's, The Vue, and Local Catch (among others). And Pizza by the Sea, Sunrise Coffee Co, La Playa, and the Perfect Pig are located there in our complex. There is a nature trail within the complex, and we use this to walk to one of our favorite lunch places-- South of Philly (probably about a third of a mile). We like to provide the beach toys and such, because we know how much a pain it is to pack all of that stuff. Our kids are 7, 4, and 1 so we use a LOT of beach toys ! We use the Frisbees and soccer ball at the green-space in front of our entry door. Glad that you enjoyed our recommendations-- and we welcome our guest to send us some of their personal favorites. You are correct about the beach-- I think it's 120 steps from our back porch. I can have toes in the sand in two minutes. Other than the beach, the crown jewel of the area, in my opinion, is the 18-mile walking/running/biking paved trail that runs the length of Highway 30a. The view on the Timpoochee Trail is tremendous, passing over probably 6 or 7 coastal dune lakes, which are very rare natural phenomena that only occur in a handful of locations around the globe, including New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar and South Walton, Florida. Thanks again. Hope to hear from you guys again soon ! Chris & Carrie Groce owners, Gulf Place Cabanas 110

Other than the beach, the Crown Jewel of Santa Rosa Beach, in our opinion, is the 18-mile Scenic 30-A Bike Trail (The Timpoochee Trail). You can get to the trail within 30 seconds from our first-floor Condo. Bring your own bicycles or rent them from Big Daddy's. They'll bring the bikes to you.

By the way, Santa Rosa Beach was ranked among the 10 Best Beach Destinations in the World.

For shopping, there are upscale shops close by in Gulf Place Town Center, and if you are into art, there is plenty at Gulf Place and a plethora along the famous Highway 30-A. For overall shopping, there are literally hundreds of stores from Destin to the end of 30-A.

Gulf Place Town Center is located in the same complex and has some nice shopping, spas, and restaurants. It even has a pharmacy.

Our property has 3 pools (coded), several grills, a nature trail, FREE laundry, plenty of green-space, tennis courts, hot tubs, shuffle board, and outdoor concrete picnic tables within the walking paths area.
