About the property

Top Floor Studio With Fabulous Views Of The Gulf Of Mexico

The Inn at Gulf Place. A small and very charming studio condo with a gorgeous beach view, 10 foot ceilings and on the top floor of a 4 story building. A micro mini penthouse.

***Maximum occupancy I allow is only 2 adults and 1 small child. Please notice there is only a King bed and small twin futon.

This means No exceptions and if there are more in your party than my max, you will be evicted and lose any monies including deposit remaining.

It has a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. The lower level units do not quite have this view.

This Resort Community is fast becoming The up and coming area to stay and play for adults.

There is NOT a kitchen to bother with because there is a coffee shop and other restaurants downstairs. Sunrise Coffee, La Playa, Perfect pig, or Pizza by the Sea for some of your meals. Other high end restaurants just walking distance from this small beach community.

Live music, concerts, wine tastings, original art galleries, YOLO shop and original ladies boutiques, all right here in one location! There are also a pharmacy near by.

The beach is just 100 steps away, across 30a beach road.

3 pools to choose from and tennis courts. One pool is heated and two have a jacuzzi.

Two beach chairs are provided for use and a blue/white flowers beach blanket to put down onto the sand.

Pool toys, beach towels and tennis racquets NOT provided. Please bring your own. Do not take mine to beach. It ruins them and you will be charged for taking any sheets towels blankets comforter to beach. One can never get all the sand out of them!

Everyone wants to join in the posh fun here, but... Not everyone is able to....

Minimum age to rent is 25.

No smoking, not even on balcony. No smoking in this entire building.

No pets!!! no matter how cute! Including *service dogs.

**As a private owner, I do have the right to refuse.

About Stefanie

Single Mom and entrepreneur enjoying life and working to make our life even better.

We are native Floridians from Ocala. Go Gators!

We have lived here since a month before the oil spill, March 2010. That was a bunch of propaganda...

Love everything the Emerald Coast has to offer and planning to live here a very long time.

Stefanie purchased this studio in 2013

Why Stefanie chose Santa Rosa Beach

I purchased these properties to take a step away from the very active Destin beach and heavy traffic in summer.

Santa Rosa Beach offers a slower paced easy upscale lifestyle for families as well as single adults.

Falling asleep hearing the constant motion of the surf is relaxing and waking up to the sun glistening off the water is refreshing to the soul.

What makes this studio unique

This condo is on the top floor and has a wonderful view of the gulf and offers the chance to explore and discover what makes 30A so sought after.

It has a classy night life, great places to eat and fine drinking establishments and you don't have to worry about driving home.

There is also a trolley that runs most of the year, from here to Seaside with many stops along the way and it is free.. Check the apps available to see where it is. Tip your driver 😀.

This condos colors are warm and inviting. Granite counters and there are enough furnishings to be comfortable and have what you need to have a wonderful getaway and know you are on a vacation.

Fast becoming The romantic honeymoon suite.

Unique and exquisite ladies boutiques for shopping. Maybe you want to try paddle boarding? There is a YOLO shop 5 steps from my elevator, or stairs, if you prefer. They offer rentals on kayaks, paddle boards and bicycles as well as sales.

This is a place that one must experience to realize the beauty and simplicity of the area.

And the clear emerald color water and sugar white beach sand are priceless.

Most beautiful beaches in the world right here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, perfect weekend! Beach sitting, kayaking and snorkeling with sand dollars, little fish, sting ray.

Steamed shrimp from Goat feathers was a delicious beach snack.

Room is just right, decorated and stocked exactly like we needed.

Thank you, our first beach trip together!

The whole "village" atmosphere completely takes you away as soon as you arrive!

  • 5 of 5

It may be a studio, but is so much more than just a room. The decor is exquisite. Making for a complete attitude adjustment. Perfect for a romantic weekend getaway for two. We spent the first day taking in the breathtaking view. Even though there are buildings between the room and the gulf, they surprisingly add to the beauty. They are gorgeous buildings. There is no lack of a view of the gulf, as you can see between and around them perfectly. And the palm trees and landscaping couldn't have been any better manicured. The cobblestone streets, the unique retail stores, and the artists and activities that occur day and night, will keep you entertained without even leaving.along with the coffee shop and restaurants there's really no need to get back into your car. Access to the beach could not be any more convenient. Two swimming pools and a hot tub! More than adequate Parking. And perfectly located between Destin and Panama City beach if you do decide to venture out. Be aware, it is extremely difficult to get out of bed in the mornings. The most comfortable bed ever! I could go on forever. We've been vacationing in this area for 45 years and this just may have been the most perfect experience yet! Stephanie, the owner, could not be any nicer. We plan to return year after year! Would recommend to anyone. You will not be disappointed!

We had a great time! This condo is clean and decorated so cute. It has everything you need and the location is amazing. It is close to fun bars and restaurants. You can watch the sun rise and set from the room and the beautiful beach is really only steps away. We had the chance to meet Stephanie and she is as nice in person as she is in her emails. Her attention to details is obvious as soon as you walk in the room! We had a very relaxing wonderful week staying at your place and look forward to returning soon! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: This guest was unhappy she didn't get to go to South Carolina, due to hurricane. Nothing would make her happy. It's a studio condo = small. No kitchen. I personally saw cable did indeed work. We do not have movie channels. Yes it has a small balcony. There are French doors that open out and a little futon to sit on in front of them looking out. i have since added a small table w chairs. I tried. Sometimes no matter what, some people won't be happy. They were lucky to have even found a place to stay as it was also fall break and we had a ton of evacuees come here.

Clean, cozy and steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean,, cozy and steps from the beach. The bed was very comfortable and we were able to see the ocean from the bed. The owner, Stefanie, was kind, responsive and extremely accommodating. The condo is ideal for couples, friends, sisters, or an individual getting away for a week or two. I would definitely stay again!

My daughter and I absolutely LOVED the property. 30A Rocks!!

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was all we needed and then some. It was clean and cozy. The pool (in the back) was amazing. The shops below our condo was perfect. We had breakfast at Sunrise Coffee one morning and had the most relaxing atmosphere. Hearing the ocean, watching people ride their bikes down the road and eating a cinnamon roll.....what could go wrong? And then there was Artists at Gulf Place......Absolutely amazing. The only "issue" I had was lack of toilet paper, wash clothes and towels. We will be back!!

Wedding Anniversary & birthday

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful place that my husband and I got the privilege of staying in! Stephanie had everything thing we could need for our stay. Never once did we find ourselves needing to run to the store to get a can opener, coffee maker, or beach chairs. The studio is beautiful! Perfect for the 2 of us! Great location and only minutes away from everything! Highly recommend it to anyone ! Thanks for a great place to stay!! Look forward to coming back again!
