This place has it all and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating our 50th Anniversary and the place offered a great place for our children and grandchildren to celebrate this special event.

The only negative comment from our family were the two cupules sleeping in the bedrooms in the tower. They said on the second and third floor they could not get the air conditioner to a comfortable sleeping temperature.

Other than that this place has it all!

The company that manages the property offered outstanding service when we had a problem when the pump was not working on the pool. they knocked on the door within 15 minutes after we called.

The house is spacious but dated.

  • 4 of 5

The house is definitely showing it's age. While there the laundry dryer broke. The kitchen needs to be restocked with new pots, pans, knives, etc. The non-stick pans were so scratched up they should be thrown out and there wasn't a sharp knife in the kitchen for slicing or chopping. Overall, it's a good house for lots of people.

Great property and great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family which consists of 3 families with no children and 1 family with 3 children and a friend each stayed at Bella Vista. There are basically 3 master bedrooms which are located in one part of the house. The other part of the house has 3 other bedrooms which could sleep up to 10 people. Decor throughout the house is nice and updated, outside pool and grilling area was great, well stocked kitchen, media room with huge TV - great house for a large group. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your experience at Bella Vista in Old Seagrove, near Seaside along Scenic HW 30-A. We have worked closely with the Owner to offer a flexible and comfortable floorplan for our Guests and, like you, they have really enjoyed the large pool and grilling area. As well, our Guests constantly comment on the convenience of the short walk or bike ride to restaurants and shops in Seagrove and Seaside. We are gratified that you allowed Sunburst to host your beach vacation and we hope to have you stay with us again soon. Thanks! Steve Howard Founder and Managing Partner, Sunburst Beach Vacations

What an amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

We a group of 12 women that get together every year and the house was perfect! We had the pool heated due to the cooler and overcast weather which made it perfect! Very convenient to walk the beach and walk to Seaside or Seagrove Beach!! Every room is a master bedroom with a bathroom included. The beds were very comfortable and the living area and media room were comfortable and beautiful. Thanks again for such a wonderful experience!!

Scenic Hwy 30-A runs for 18.2 miles along unspoiled sandy white beaches and sea oat covered dunes, past freshwater coastal lakes and saltwater inlets and through hardwood hammocks, long leaf pines and coastal scrub oaks.

The Beaches of South Walton is tucked away on Northwest Florida's Gulf coast between Destin and Panama City and is known for the shimmering emerald blue-green brilliance of the Gulf of Mexico, sugar white fine sand beaches and unspoiled natural beauty.

The adventure seeker can find diverse fishing, sailing or kayaking as well as miles of greenway trails connecting state parks for hiking and nature watching. As well, an off-road pedestrian and biking trail runs the entire length of 30A. Golfers can relish in 207 holes on 9 championship courses as well as ample tennis options. Restaurant choices offer an exciting and eclectic mix of casual coastal fare to award winning fine dining with extensive wine cellars. Shoppers can experience local color and style while experiencing open air markets, artist’s colonies, quaint shops and cafes that reflect our quiet, laid back style.

Sunburst Beach Vacations offers accommodations that include Gulf front beach homes, condominiums and Gulf view homes with private pools within several unique beach communities. We are a small locally boutique establishment with intimate knowledge of our area, and we can provide professional, friendly advice to create the perfect beach vacation to fit your needs.
