Brand New Upgrades! Awesome Beach Views, Just Steps to Beach with Heated Pool!

A Sunny Day is a spectacular second tier home, 4BR/4.5 Baths (sleeps 12) with heated pool just feet from the walkover and sugar white beach, and closer to the water than many “Gulf front” homes. Newly renovated in 2017, including new custom bathrooms with Kohler fixtures, new carpeting and hardwood floors, new gas log fire place, new decks and lots more; check out the new pictures! Located at 90 Seaward Drive in the private gated community of Sunrise Beach, south of 30A, across from the restaurants, shopping and live music of Gulf Place. Hurry to book for 2018; much of 2017 is already sold out with return clients.

Incredible views, breeze and sounds of the gulf from two huge decks. This was the owners’ second home for many years and offers many unique features, including a gourmet kitchen on the 2nd floor and another full pool-side kitchen on the 1st floor. A perfect house for two families. New tank-less water heaters ensure plenty of hot water for everyone! The home has a new, high efficiency HVAC system and features Dish TV on six HDTVs and wireless high-speed internet throughout. Parking for 4 cars.

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. (No more arguments over who gets “the best” bedroom!) One bedroom features a desk and master bath with secluded soaking 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 plenty of seating. It’s a perfect place for sunrise coffee while watching the dolphins play, or 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 second floor consists 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, half bath and wet bar with beverage cooler. The dining room table seats ten comfortably, and the kitchen counter-top bar seats six more. 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. A gas fire place provides plenty of warmth when a chill is in the air. 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 complimentary and yours to use.

The first floor has a living room, with HDTV and surround-sound stereo and iPod dock, its own full kitchen, washer/dryer and two queen bedrooms with private baths and access to the pool. One bedroom 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 gas grill, table for dining and lots of space to relax with your favorite beverage as you watch the kids in the pool. Or, enjoy the two outdoor showers with hot/cold water and jump into the heated pool yourself, one of the largest in Sunrise Beach. The pool is fully lighted for evening swims (pool heating at modest additional fee) and the pool deck is landscaped and offers shaded seating with four lounge chairs, providing a great alternative to the beach.

Speaking of the beach, it is just steps away. We provide beach chairs for 12, beach umbrellas and plenty of beach toys.

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.

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!

Pool Heater Rates are $12/per day or $65/ per week

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Tons of room and close to the beach. Bathrooms looked like they had recently been redone and were very nice. Enjoyed the pool and the proximity to the beach. You can't rent beach chairs/umbrellas from a service but the house came equipped with chairs and umbrellas. The whole family really enjoyed our stay!

Great home!! Hopefully will stay again

  • 5 of 5

The home "A Sunny Day" is nicely decorated and roomy. Having 2sets of clothes washer and dryer is very convenient. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, which makes it private. The beach views are beautiful but slightly blocked by beachfront homes, but still able to see the beach good enough. The pool is a bit small, but no smaller than the others and quickly became our family gathering place. The 2nd floor covered deck is super sized and just perfect! Couple recommendation I have; change description of trundle bed, to a day bed w 2 mattresses, to sleep more than one guest, one of the mattresses must be lifted off and put on floor; increase kitchen dish cloths, add some assorted DVD movies. Main refrigerator would not release ice thru the door. Maybe having a small commercial ice maker would be great

I would definitely recommend this home and hope to stay there again for more than 1 wk. oh, it's great having a Publix and Dollar General close by. If I was retired, I'd definitely be requesting to stay in this home for couple winter months

Wow, the renovation and new upgrades look great!

  • 5 of 5

I returned to A Sunny Day this spring with a group of 10. We've stayed twice in the past and loved it but I was surprised and excited to see the new bathrooms, carpeting and new pool deck. There are brand new kitchen items and we just loved grilling out back and eating dinner on the 2nd floor deck. New sheets and towels were a great plus and nothing can beat the location - right across from the beach walk over. Perfect! We will be back.
