About the property

2 BR, 2 Bath, Corner Unit Located On The Ground Floor

Sabo’s Sandbox is located in Beachside Villas and perfect for couples or families that are seeking to escape the crowds of the more populated Destin and Panama City Beach areas. Sabo’s Sandbox is a Non-Smoking, No Pets Allowed, 2 BR, 2 bath corner unit located on the ground floor of building #9 at the Beachside Villas. While this unit does not have a gulf view it does provide easy access to the boardwalk that leads right to the beach!!! You will not have to cross any busy streets as you are less than 300 steps from the front door to the beach. Adult bikes, beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels all included.

Beachside Villas is a quiet, family-oriented, beachfront complex offering two pools (one heated), lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, WiFi high speed internet access, a very nice party deck, and barbeques. Located between Deer Lake State Park and Eastern Lake, you will find one of the most peaceful stretches of beach around. Enjoy cycling/running/walking on the nearby 30A- 27 mile-long bike trail. Set out and explore the fabulous restaurants and quaint shops of Seagrove Beach and the surrounding communities, such as Seaside and Rosemary Beach. If you desire more, Sandestin outlets are just 20 miles west and Pier Park in Panama City Beach is just 15 miles east.

This unit has been remodeled with new furniture, a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washer and dryer, televisions in the living room and each bedroom. The dining table seats 4 with an additional 2 at the bar.

About Bill and Janice Sabo

We live in Summerville, Georgia and were high school sweet hearts. Now 30+ years later we are still sweet hearts and the best of friends! God blessed us with a beautiful daughter, Ciji, who is now married to a wonderful man Craig Brewer.

Bill and Janice Sabo purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bill and Janice Sabo chose Seagrove Beach

We Love 30A! Our daughter has always loved the beach so we would vacation at Seaside every year for many years. Now, years later, God blessed us with the opportunity to purchase our own condo very close to Seaside. This is such a family friendly place - laid back and relaxing! Nothing like the party crowds you might find at Panama. It truly is a piece of paradise!

What makes this condo unique

We realize that some folks do like the crowded party beaches but we love that there are NO high rise condo's and it's tucked away so that you feel the serene atmosphere of 30A and it's beaches!

Amazing is all we can say about our stay at Sabo's Sandbox

  • 5 of 5

As others have stated-this place has it all! Plenty of everything you may need. It is clean and beautifuly decorated and our only complaint--we had to walk the 300 feet to the beach. But we couldnt ask for a better place and the beach got closer with every trip. We were sorry we didnt get to see the alligator although it wasnt for a lack of trying! The perfect place for a relaxing vacation!!!

Very nice condo and property.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the condo! Only complaints were that it took 24 hrs to get the frig cool enough for our food and we had some spiders even after pest control sprayed. My friend even got bit by a spider in the bed. If it werent for these problems we would give 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The fridge is brand new so we will check to see if the controls may not be set correctly. We have also notified HOA re: pests. Glad to hear you like the condo.

Great place! Owners had all information printed out in a notebook which was very helpful.

  • 4 of 5

The property is nice and kept very clean. The only negative was there was no place to put dry food. All cabinets were full and there was not a pantry, other than that it was excellent.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive feedback. We do try to keep the cabinets inventoried with supplies that renters might need. We also updated to granite countertops with a significant amount of countertop space. Hoping you will visit the Sandbox again soon!

Great place to stay and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sabos sandbox over spring break with our kids and had a great time. Within short walk of the beach and love that its next to the pool, pond, and tennis courts. Owners were super easy to deal with and will definitely use the place again.

Perfect two bedroom for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sabo's Sandbox! I have to say the best part was having all the toys, umbrellas, chairs, sand toys, etc all there. It cut down on what we had to take for our kids and as any parent knows, traveling with kids is quite an adventure and typically leaves you feeling lack a pack mule. It was also nice that the condo DIDN'T have bunk beds in the guest room. We hate bunk beds and having the two full beds in the guest was the best thing we could have asked for. Anything you need kitchen wise is there and ready to go. We would love to stay again!

This is not for the 'party' crowd. It is tucked away and laid back for relaxation. You can travel down 30A and find many great restaurants and we are only 3 miles from Seaside. It is a family oriented atmosphere! If you are looking to relax, this is it!
