About the property

2 Bed-2 Bath Condo Sleeps 8 (mix kids); Dog Friendly; free kayak, new kitchen,WD

Blondie’s Place is located on the south (beach) side of 30A in the quaint village of Seagrove Beach 200 yards from the beach at 145 Beachfront Trail, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459. This renovated and professionally decorated 2 bedroom-2 bath condo is perfect for 2 couples and/or families - including those 4-legged fur baby family members (dogs only; large breeds like goldens & labs are welcome). Eff Nov 22, 2016 the kitchen has been completely renovated - new cabinets, quartz countertops, arabesque tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances, including a Samsung convection oven and ceramic cooktop! Also new Samsung larger washer/dryer 4.2/7.5 cf stacked units in guest bedroom closet eff Nov 22, 2016. Call us for more info at 404 427 9562 four oh four four two seven nine five six two

The master bedroom features a Serta king pillowtop bed (upgraded from queen bed) and private bath, the second bedroom has a queen bed and twin size bunk beds, and there is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room – accommodating up to eight guests (although 8 adults would be extremely tight so we only allow a mix of max 8 adults & kids). The 2nd bathroom is accessed via the small hall outside the 2nd bedroom.

The unit features a washer/dryer which sets us apart in this complex - and new larger units installed Nov 22, 2016. There are three HDTVs - a larger new 40 inch HDTV in the living area and a 32 inch HDTV in each bedroom now hung on the walls - as well as DVD players in each. There is a library of DVDs, wireless internet access (Wi-Fi) and a printer. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed for meal preparation, eating and drinking - new modern gray cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances including ceramic cooking surface and convection range plus microwave! The building does have an elevator as well.

2014-2016 upgrades/renovations include laminate floors throughout; remodeled master bath including a new bathtub/shower, vanity and toilet; updated guest bath includes new vanity and toilet; new air conditioning unit, and now the brand new kitchen and washer/dryer completes our upgrades.

The expansive south-facing balcony offers a gulf view and is the perfect place to relax with a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening while you watch the most amazing sunsets in the world! Open the doors and windows to feel the cool sea breeze and hear the crashing waves.

It’s just a few minute-200 yard stroll on a quiet side road to the white sugar sand of the beautiful Emerald Coast. There is a small cart available on the deck to haul your stuff to the beach, plus beach chairs. Soak up the sun, swim or use the complimentary 1 person sea kayak/oars provided with your condo rental. Walk another 5 minutes to Deer Lake Wildlife Reserve, a natural undeveloped state park and amazing coastal habitat. After a day at the beach the community pool is perfect for a cool dip. You can also enjoy the 19 mile, paved bike path that leads you to neighboring communities like Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach, and Rosemary Beach.

Cleaning fee of $120 is added to all rentals (including weekly rentals); a small non-refundable pet fee is charged for 4 legged fur babies (dogs), but they are more than welcome and should also be able to come on vacation - including large breeds like labs and our favorites - golden retrievers!

We are a completely no smoking unit - both inside and on the balcony - must go downstairs if you want to smoke!

We know you will love Blondie's Place just as much as we and our golden retrievers Biscuit & Angie do - it is named after our oldest golden who passed in 2012!

Our calendar is kept up to date daily so what you see online is accurate!

We no longer have our 2nd unit in this building as sold it in mid-Aug 2017. We will be building a house and carriage house nearby in Dune Allen Beach on 30A to open in summer 2018 for rentals - to be named Seadog's Endless Summer.

Why Owners/Property Managers Dave Campbell & JC Cook chose Beaches of South Walton

Guestbook comments from the owner

wanted to first let you know how much we enjoyed Blondie's Place. It was great to be able to have our dogs there with us and it just felt like home. My wife got a bunch of pics of them enjoying their vacation as well.



We made good use of the kayak and the bikes. I have a feeling that this vacation is going to end up costing me another bit of money for one of those beachcomber style bikes. My wife fell in love with it. We discovered the 30A Popsicle place and I think that she biked up there most every day. She and the kids also biked over to Seaside one of the days. She biked back but I ended up putting the kids' bikes back into our Suburban :).



The sand on the beaches was great. We had a lot of fun with sandcastles and the like. It was quite a workout to haul our cart to and fro through the deep sand but it was good to burn a few calories before dinner! The weather held out for us. We got a slight sprinkle that looked a bit more forboding on Thursday (our last evening on the beach) but it ended up not being much at all. The wind from the storm kicked up some good waves which we all enjoyed. It also kicked up a lot of the green algae/seaweed stuff unfortunately. It was still good.

Lovely property!

  • 4 of 5

Been staying at BF2 for over 25 years and really enjoyed Blondies Place. There was a lot of room for my family. They also have renovated the kitchen. All new cabinets and appliances.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. You indicated to me that the only reason you rated us 4 stars vs 5 was that the AC vents were dirty. We ask every guest to notify us immediately if there are any issues upon arrival or when they notice, so we can have rectified ASAP. But since you only told us after you left we are now having them cleaned. We hope to see you back in the future! We pride ourselves on 28 out of 30 reviews being 5 stars and am sorry we did not have the chance for your stay to be another one.

Clean, current, and owned by responsible people

We do not have a single complaint about the property or our experience. The property was well represented by the ad. The owners were prompt, professional, and courteous in their communications. Great place to stay a block away from a world-class beach.

Another perfect trip!

  • 5 of 5

Really love this place for its location (don't have to cross 30a to beach; tucked away) and nice amenities (pool, wifi, etc.). Loved the upgrades this year (new appliances, new king sized bed in master, new countertops and more). For a pup friendly place, it sure doesn't smell/look like it. Very clean. Top notch. Look forward to return visit.

Perfect fit for our family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean and nicely appointed. The location is quiet and it's a very easy walk to a gorgeous beach. Comfy beds, great balcony, big swimming pool--it was a fantastic week! The owner was responsive to questions and requests. Hope to return next year!

Great Vacation, Amazing Host

  • 5 of 5

Last minute vacations are always hard to book, but Dave was incredibly helpful and always responded quickly! Having chairs, umbrellas, and a kayak available made it very easy packing light for the trip and stress free. The condo was surprisingly large and had enough beds for everyone. This was easily one of my best trips to Florida and I will always check for Dave's place before booking!
