Property description

2016 Updates: For the 2016 rental year, we will have new couch and love seats in the family room, new bunk mattresses, and several other updates throughout.

Note: Summer rentals are from Sunday to Sunday to ensure you miss the Saturday move-in traffic and long grocery store lines -- and have a full weekend to enjoy the festivals, farmers markets, and other activities on 30A.

Looking for the perfect balance between a quiet, peaceful vacation spot and easy access to the beach, shopping, dining, and activities that South Walton is famous for? You’ve found it. Solar Therapy 30A is a three-story beach cottage with panoramic gulf views. Located in Seacrest Beach on Scenic Highway 30A, it is situated between Rosemary Beach and Seaside/Watercolor in the quaint, family-friendly community of Cottages at Camp Creek. With only 32 homes in the neighborhood, private deeded beach access, and just a few steps to our world-famous white sandy beaches, you’ll find the serenity you’re looking for. There are 26 miles of paved walking and biking trails on 30A, and you’ll find some of the best casual and fine dining, fishing, and golf around. Water parks, amusement parks, unique shopping venues, and local festivals are within 30 minutes in Destin and Panama City Beach.

Special note to our guests: As frequent travelers, we appreciate the little things that make us feel right at home no matter the time zone, so we’ve upgraded the king and queen beds with new mattresses and cool gel memory foam mattress pads, outfitted the kitchen with gourmet tools and cookware, and selected designer furnishings – from Vizio HDTVs and Ballard Designs, Pottery Barn and West Elm furniture to Tommy Bahama and Egyptian cotton bedding – with comfort and convenience in mind.

Space for everyone

Two oversized king master bedrooms complement the first floor, each with a king bed, large flat panel TV, and ensuite bathroom. The first is furnished with gorgeous West Indies-style furniture, luxury bedding, a cozy chair and ottoman for curling up with a good book, and double French doors lead to a private porch with cushioned wicker rockers -- perfect for gazing at the gulf waters. The second master bedroom is furnished in classic beach house style with a traditional flair, including luxury king bedding and extra closet space – plus floor space for a pack & play for a little one. On this level, you’ll also find a laundry room and a storage closet complete with a wagon, beach chairs, pool noodles, a cooler, flashlights for nighttime beach walks, and all of the toys you need for a great day in the sand and surf!

When you walk into the sunny, wide-open kitchen, dining and living space on the main floor, you may have a tough time choosing between lounging on the sofa to watch a movie on the 50 inch wall-mounted TV, cozying up to the breakfast bar for an impromptu cocktail party with friends in the gourmet kitchen (complete with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and an ICEMAKER!), or gathering the kids for a round of Uno at the dining table that seats 10+. The room is wrapped with windows and double French doors leading to spectacular gulf views from the 20-ft covered porch, so perhaps sinking into the outdoor sofa for a nap will help you decide. You’ll also find a large bedroom with two queen beds and a flat panel TV, plus a full bathroom on this level – perfect for those who like to enjoy their vacation all on one floor.

The kids will love having a space of their own in the third-floor tower bunk room for three -- complete with TV, video and board games, and their own private covered porch that overlooks the neighborhood and community pool. On the gulf side of the cottage, an extra special retreat awaits guests. Furnished in beachy blue, yellow and white, this king bedroom includes a private covered porch and one of the most glorious gulf views this side of 30A. A full bath completes the third floor.

Everything you need for a perfect beach vacation -- inside and out

Our pristinely clean, smoke-free cottage is well appointed with many extras to make your stay even more special. You’ll enjoy 10 foot ceilings with transom windows above the doorways, beautifully tiled floors, and beautiful views through the many windows. The kitchen is fully stocked with a coffee maker, blender, slow cooker, toaster, drinkware and wine glasses, dishes and silverware for 16 plus casual dishes for the children or a romantic beach picnic. Technology lovers will appreciate the speedy internet connection, free Netflix movies, and wifi-enabled TVs. Outside, you can take a dip in the 75 foot long pool or hot tub, never crowded and just 20 yards from your back door. You’re steps away from palm-tree-lined access to the beach, which is rarely busy in this area. Have bicycles delivered to your door and take a short bike ride or walk to Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, and more. Plus, easy access to Publix and other shopping (without the Seaside traffic!). An outdoor shower at the home’s entrance makes it easy to wash away the sand at the end of a sun-drenched, fantastic day!

You’ve found it. The perfect gulf-view home for your beach vacation. Book today.

Private Access beach

Located 1.6 miles West of Rosemary Beach, and 6.5 miles from Seaside, our home is on a very quiet stretch of 30A, but an easy bike ride to both locations (ask us about bike rentals). Our home is also a very short walk to a private beach access. Since it's a private access, and all the properties around are low density, it tends to be a very quiet part of the beach. If you've never been to this part of 30A before, you'll love the location, as .4 miles east of our home is Watersound Parkway, which connects 30A and Hwy 98, allowing you to bypass the heavy traffic of other routes.

Once you're on 98, groceries, shopping, dinner and other attractions are just minutes away in either Panama City Beach or Destin.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We're the Allens, and we live near Atlanta, GA. We've lived in the southeast for about 20 years, and love coming to this part of the country for 'beachy' vacations. Between the two of us, we have five kids, ranging from 14-26, so space on vacations is always important to us.

Why the Owner Chose Seacrest, FL, USA:
We've traveled to the area many times, and visited many other beaches along the Atlantic, Gulf, Caribbean, Hawaii, and Australia. We wanted a beach home for our family to enjoy for many years, and found this perfect place far enough away from the busy traffic of Destin and Panama City Beach, and yet close enough to be convenient. Our vacation home is only a five and a half hour drive from our home in Atlanta, so it's perfect for a short getaway or a longer vacation. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are a few things that we think you'll especially enjoy. Firstly, the location on 30A is one of the least busy, making traffic a breeze. Access to 98 is very convenient, as Watersound Parkway is only .4 miles to the east of our neighborhood. Secondly, our private beach access is a very short walk, and because it's private, means that it's never very busy on this part of the beach. Chair and umbrella companies will be happy to set up their equipment for you, if you don't want to transport the items we've supplied with your rental. Thirdly, we love that the size of our community is only 32 homes, with almost all of them being smaller cottages, so that the community pool is never too busy. The benefits continue, with great places to eat, easy access to Panama city Beach, very comfortable layout in the home, bike paths, nearby golf, etc. We enjoy this section of 30A so much, and have tried to equip our home to maximize your comfort and enjoyment. We hope you'll be able to spend your vacation at our home in the near future.
