About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bath - Sleeps up to 12 - VRBO #502747

BreakAway from your regular routine and stay at our inviting beach cottage! Make it your home away from home. Relax in the coastal and tropical inspired decor with an overall contemporary feel. The house is just a 5 minute walk or 0.2 of a mile (350 yards) to the nearest beach access, Gulfview Heights. It is also minutes away from the Ed Walline beach access at Gulf Place. Both locations are equipped with restrooms, picnic pavilions, and outdoor wash facilities to remove the saltwater and sand.

Bright, shiny & new....the 2 story cottage has hand scraped wood floors throughout except for tile floors in the bathrooms. The first floor consists of a living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom with en suite bath, and half bath. The living room includes a queen sleeper sofa and 50-inch LED TV with DVD player. The TV can be adjusted to be viewed from either the living or dining area. The dining room has seating for 8 while the breakfast bar has 4 additional stools. The kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and is well-equipped for your cooking and baking needs.

Located upstairs is another living area, 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The additional living area has a queen sofa sleeper and a TV with DVD player. To add some fun and whimsy there are some themed rooms. There is a queen bedroom reminiscent of the beach. A sea turtle bedroom with 2 twin beds and a fish decorated bunk room, with a twin over full bed, complete the bedrooms. These rooms are great for kids and those who are kids at heart!

The house is part of a small community called Beach Nest that offers a community pool just steps away from the house.

Come and experience everything 30-A has to offer! Restaurants and shops abound in the area. It has something for everyone. Hiking and biking trails are very accessible. You can explore the quaint town of Seaside where Tim Burton’s The Truman Show was filmed. Or, enjoy nature in nearby state parks. Many of the communities plan activities, such as outdoor concerts. There are many scenic and challenging golf courses in the area. And if you cannot find it on 30-A, you are in close proximity to Destin and Panama City Beach.

We, too, are consumers of VRBO and have tried to put ourselves in the position of someone spending time at the house. We have put much thought into making this house a home and hope you will consider our house for your vacation plans. All mattresses are new and many are pillow top. In an effort to pay more attention to details, all bedding has been encased with allergy protection products to make allergy sufferers more comfortable.

Perfect for large families, extended family and friends, golf getaways, and gals and guys trips.

About Rose Bernardez

We visited the 30-A area on a few recent vacations and fell in love with the place! It was suggested to us at our son's baseball games as a great place to vacation. We live in St. Louis and the members of our family are truly a bunch of beach bums. The Santa Rosa Beach area has everything we were looking outstanding beach, quaint small towns. but also close to larger cities. There is so much to do along 30-A and the surrounding areas.

Rose Bernardez purchased this house in 2013

Why Rose Bernardez chose Santa Rosa Beach

Spacious, yet close proximity to white, sugar sand beach and other activities and necessities. Not only easy walking distance to beach, but also to shops and restaurants. We also liked the accessibility to biking and hiking trails.

What makes this house unique

The location was hard to beat to get the size and amenities of this house. It has a wonderful combination of a small town atmosphere with the benefits of larger cities. The newness of the house is appealing while still retaining a rustic, cottage charm.

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (mom, dad, 17 yo girl, 14 yo girl, 13 yo boy, and grandma) loved this comfortable, well located spot. Ample space for everyone, easy walk to a great beach, easy access to shops and restaurants. Loved the decor and layout of the house. Perfect!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Prior to booking, Rose (the owner) called me when I inquired about the rental property. She wanted to make sure I was 100% comfortable with renting through HomeAway since I'd never done so previously. We talked for a while on the phone and I found her to be very warm and friendly. Her friendly demeanor helped me to feel more comfortable with spending money for a vacation rental!

This place itself was absolutely wonderful! Rose, has thought of everything. We had 2 little ones with us and we were surprised to find a baby gate to keep the kids away from the stairs! We were shocked to find a beach umbrella, beach chairs, a crock pot, a pack'n'play, high chair, and PLENTY of hot water which was very important for 9 people living under one roof! We were only a 5 minute walk from the beach and a 1 minute walk to the pool. We had plenty of parking for 2 vans and a sedan. The kitchen was filled with adorable red, white and blue plates, bowls and coffee cups! The property itself was extremely well kept and orderly. The decor and bedding was perfectly suited for a beach house and the appearance also helped us feel more at home and welcome.

Apparently, there was an issue with the vacuum that the cleaning crew found before we arrived. The owner called me and offered to replace the vacuum immediately if we felt it was crucial to our stay. The whole house is tiled so, for us, sweeping was easier. I was impressed with how quick she was to address a potential problem and how eager she was to ensure we were happy. The only thing we really needed that the owner couldn't provide for us was more vacation time!

I HIGHLY recommend renting this property! I promise, you won't be let down!

Best family vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best vacation rental we've been to. The house is beautiful and only a few minutes walk or bike ride to the beach. An affordable bike rental was about a block away, their bikes actually looked in better condition than others nearby. A fish market, that is not as expensive as some we have been too, was also about a block away. Rose was the nicest owner/renter I've ever had to deal with. She was very helpful in making our stay comfortable and fun. I enjoyed having the feeling of being in a home and not a rental. I would love to return for another family vacation here!!

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the panhandle beaches. Not only did we fall in love with Santa Rosa Beach, but the beach house was more than we expected. Communicating with Rose was seamless and pleasant. The house had everything we needed and was very clean. Exactly as pictured! The walk to the beach is roughly 6 minutes. The pool a minute or less. The surrounding area is very quiet. We can't wait to go back. Thanks!

Great location, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and clean home. Perfect location that was a very short walk to the beach, even with little kids. Everything was as stated in listing and Rose was very easy to work with and very quick to respond to my interest and questions. We had 10 people including 4 children and it was very comfortable. I would stay again and highly recommend this home.
