About Stefanie

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

We are native Floridians from Ocala. Go Gators!

Love everything the Emerald Coast has to offer. This is a favorite get a way for us! Hopefully it will be for you as well for many years to come.

Stefanie purchased this studio in 2013

Why Stefanie chose Gulf Place

I purchased this property to take a step away from the very active Destin beach and heavy traffic in summer. Now offering it to rent for your get a way.

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

When I purchased this unit, I stripped it of all furniture. I gave it a new color palette and new furniture that makes most people feel relaxed. It's an upscale beachy theme.

Falling asleep in the super comfy memory foam king size bed with soft sheets and pillows, relaxing and waking up to the sun glistening off the water is refreshing to the soul.

This condo has one of the best views of the water from the room.

It was my personal use condo, but now available for you to enjoy too and make many memories on our beautiful beach!

Honeymooners and Anniversary favorite! I've even had babymooners stay here.

What makes this studio unique

This condo is on the top floor (4th) and has a wonderful view of the gulf.

***If pregnant, or disabled please consider my other condo, on the 2nd floor, because the elevator does stop once in a while and there is nothing I can do for you. You have been warned.

This immediate area offers the chance to explore and discover what makes 30A so sought after.

There is a fun night life, great places to eat and fine drinking establishments and you don't have to worry about driving home.

During peak season, There is also a trolley that runs from here to Seaside with many stops along the way .. Check the apps available to see where it is. Tip your driver 😀.

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.

Umbrellas and beach chair rentals are on the beach, in season. March - October.

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

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

Most beautiful beaches in the world right here.

Trip Adviser top beaches.

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!

This was such a relaxing trip in a lovely condo! The room was clean, comfortable and well decorated. I was there alone so there was plenty of space, however, this room couple definitely accommodate 2 adults and one small child. There is a lovely view of the gulf from the wall of windows and the small patio was great for a morning coffee. I would definitely go again!

Very clean, very close to the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent my birthday weekend here. I was really impressed with the condo and the entire neighborhood. We could have gone to Destin or Panama City Beach to eat, but you don't have to! There were plenty of places within walking distance. Loved that the coffee shop was right downstairs! The beach was never too crowded. We would definitely come back again!!

This condo has everything you need, and is just the right size. Absolutely great location. Literally a 1-2 min walk to the beach. Great shops, and food located within walking distance. Super comfy bed, and the building stuck to its quiet hours after 10 pm. We can't wait to come back.

This unit, although small, had everything needed for a comfortable and enjoyable visit. The location was perfect with quick, easy walking access to the beach, shops and restaurants. Loved, loved the view of the ocean from our little balcony!

I'm a stickler for reviews. When we were looking in Santa Rosa, I only wanted to look at places that had high reviews. This one kept coming up...and for good reason. I'd give more than 5 stars if I could.

Stefanie is one of the best owners I've ever worked with. One thing that I loved about her was how quick she was to communicate with us. We had everything we needed before we got there. She even wished us "Happy Anniversary" upon our arrival. She's the perfect owner, and I really look forward to working with her again.

THE VIEW from the studio was heavenly! It was nicely decorated and clean. My wife and I were comfortable and never needed anything.

You're right across the street from the beach. Bikes/boards, restaurants, and retail shops are right below the studio. Everyone was so nice, and it's certainly a safe area. The pools/hot tubs are great options if you get tired of the beach.

I can't say enough about this place. We're already planning a trip back.

Thanks Stefanie!! We'll be in touch.
