About the property

Brand New Listing! Awesome Beach Views!

'A Sunny Day' is a spectacular second tier home, 4BR/4.5 Baths (sleeps 10-12) with private heated pool is just feet from the walkover and sugar white beach, and closer to the water than many “Gulf front” homes. Located in the private gated community of Sunrise Beach, across from the restaurants and shopping of Gulf Place.

Incredible views and sounds of the ocean from two huge decks. New to the rental market, this was the owners’ second home for many years and offers many unique features, including a gourmet kitchen.

Features two living spaces. The first floor has a living room, with HDTV and surround-sound stereo and iPod dock, a full kitchen, washer/dryer and two queen bedrooms with private baths and access to the pool. One bedroom also has a day bed and trundle bed too. Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs and luxury linens. One bathroom is fully accessible with hand rails for those with mobility challenges. Out the back door is a cozy covered porch, connecting to the pool area, with a high-end Weber gas grill and a high-top table for dining and lots of space to relax with your favorite beverage as you watch the kids in the pool. Or, enjoy the outdoor shower and jump into the heated pool yourself, one of the largest in Sunrise Beach, and fully lighted for evening swims. The pool deck is landscaped and has lounge chairs and umbrella, providing a great alternative to the beach.

A hard wood stair case leads to the second floor, consisting of a spacious, light-filled living area, dining room and fully-stocked gourmet kitchen with gas stove, GE stainless steel appliances, and hardwood floors throughout, and a half bath & wet bar and beverage cooler. The dining room table seats ten comfortably, or gather six around the kitchen counter-top bar. A large screen HDTV with surround sound and blue-ray DVD provide entertainment, and huge comfortable couches and love seat offer lots of room to relax. Or dine outside on the huge fully-covered second floor deck, with water views, and two iron dining tables with seating for eight and more seating to spread out. There are lots of toys and books for the kids (and young at heart). Bringing the baby? No problem, a beautiful wooden high chair, Pack N’ Play and baby gates are yours to use.


The third floor features two huge Gulf-front king bedroom master suites, each with a large private bath, tons of closet and storage space and a large screen TV. One bedroom features a desk and masterbath with double shower, Jacuzzi tub and double vanity sinks. The other king master suite includes a day bed and trundle bed too and can sleep four. Best of all, both master suites connect to a covered porch stretching the entire length of the third floor, with amazing views of the Gulf and beach and a perfect place for sunset cocktails. Sleep with the sounds of the Gulf without fear of insects, as both third floor bedrooms have a magnetic screen door that snaps on and off. The third floor also has a laundry room, with full size washer and dryer, ironing board, and a wet bar area, with wine chiller.

The home has a new, high efficiency HVAC system that will keep you comfortable on even the hottest Summer days and just as warm and cozy on a cold Winter’s night. Even in January, you can be swimming comfortably in the pool in less than four hours, thanks to the high-capacity pool heater. The house features Dish TV on six HDTVs and wireless high-speed internet throughout. Parking for 4 cars. Beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys provided.

A Sunny Day is a short walk to Gulf Place, a 5 minute drive to a huge new Publix or Santa Rosa golf course; a 10-12 minute drive to Grayton Beach and Seaside to the east, and to the west, Sandestin (including Baytowne and golf) and the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, and the shopping restaurants and movie theater at Grande Boulevard; and a 20 minute drive to Destin or ten other golf courses. We are 35 minutes from the airports at Panama City and Ft. Walton. Enjoy the 16 mile long bike and walking path right outside our gate. We are in South Walton County in the Florida Panhandle between Destin and Panama City Beach. You'll see our area referred to as the Emerald Coast, Scenic 30A, and the world's most beautiful beaches!

Scenic 30A is a hidden little paradise nestled right in the middle of Destin and Panama City Beach, yet away from all the crowds. From East to West our beach towns along the 16 mile stretch of 30a are Inlet Beach, Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Seacrest, WaterSound Beach, Seagrove, Seaside, WaterColor, Grayton Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, Santa Rosa Beach & Dune Allen.

WE JUST MADE THE TOP 10 LIST!! Santa Rosa Beach, was ranked one of the Top 10 Best Beach Destinations 2011.... in the world by Yahoo Travel!! We are ranked with Maui, Bali, New Zealand and others around the world.


Come enjoy your family or group vacation with us - once you are here, you will not want to leave. We look forward to having you at A Sunny Day !

We loved the house size and the pool. The proximity to the beach was great!! There were a few minor things in the house that could be fixed/updated, but overall it was great for us!!

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 6 children thoroughly enjoyed "A Sunny Day" and will return for another vacation in the future. The house was large enough to accommodate all of us. It was so nice and close to the beach and then we had the pool to enjoy after a long day at the beach. Shops and restaurants were in walking distance. There was a closet full of beach equipment for us to use. Publix was a mile from the intersection of 393 and Hwy 98 and Goatfeathers, a seafood market and restaurant was 3/4 of a mile from the house. I will highly recommend this to family and friends.

Great location for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

Quick walk across street to beach! Great set up for kids when the dreaded "I have to go to the bathroom" statement is made. Walking distance to several nice breakfast/lunch options as well as bike/paddle board, etc. rental.

Fantastic Beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This Beach house more than exceeded our expectations. We were a group with 2 young children, 5 adults (one with mobility issues) and one 70+ and the home was very accommodating to all! The kitchens were well equipped and the dinning area large enough to visit and dine. The 2nd and 3rd floor balconies gave us breathtaking views of the beach for sunrises and sunsets we will never forget. The home is situated directly across from the walkover to the beach making getting to the beach with this group doable. The ingound pool was a big plus for all as a perfect oasis after a day on the beach. Sunrise Beach Community is a lovely gated community right off of 30-A. Bike paths and shopping very convenient. Loved-loved-loved this house! Would recommend to anyone.
