About the Property

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

Blondie’s Place is located on the south (beach) side of 30A in the quaint village of Seagrove Beach 150 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.

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-150 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 - 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 also have a smaller 1 bedroom-1 bath (2 story) loft unit that sleeps 4 available for rent in this same building - Baci's Bungalow, named after our youngest Golden who passed in late 2011 - VRBO #498978.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Beach lovers & dog lovers - found our slices of beach paradise in 30A

Why the Owner Chose Seagrove Beach, FL, USA:
We fell in love with this place due to the quiet nature of the 30A beach area and ease of walking 150 yards; our 2 current golden retrievers Biscuit & Angie love coming to the beach and so do we - it is named after our first golden Blondie (Bella's mother), who passed in early 2012, just after her grand-daughter Baci left us. We also have another 1 bed/1 bath, 2 story loft (in this same building) named after her - VRBO #498978 - Baci's Bungalow!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
View from large Gulf facing balcony; 1 complimentary sea kayak (1 person) with wheels, beach chairs and small cart to haul beach items plus other free beach stuff; community pool; refurbished interior, warm, inviting atmosphere, all new furniture, new laminate floors; large dog friendly but must know they are coming before rental is booked (with non-refundable pet fee for 1-3 dogs depending on size); all rentals add $100 cleaning fee. New kitchen countertops, cabinets, backsplash and stainless appliances Nov 2016, new larger Samsung washer/dryer unit Nov 2016.
