Charming 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house in quaint area within 10 min walk to beach
A peaceful, quiet get away awaits you at Gulf Dream, a 4 bedroom, 3 bath home in the neighborhood of Old Florida Village in Santa Rosa Beach. Along 30A, memories are made with the soft white sand beaches and warm blue waters of the Gulf. Take a bike ride along 30A to visit Seaside, Watercolor, Rosemary Beach and more. Swim in the two community pools, read a book on one of the decks or play catch in the green areas located around this quaint neighborhood.
This home is sure to fit your whole family with its spacious main floor living and dining areas. The kitchen is stocked with all the necessary items to cook up the day's catch or fresh veggies from the local farmer's markets. On the main floor there is a queen bedroom with a full bath and a queen sleeper sofa. On the second level, there are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. One bedroom has a queen bed, another with 2 twin bunk beds. The master bedroom has a king bed, shower and a tub to soak away the sand between your toes. Another great feature of the master bedroom is a private second story balcony. Each bedroom has its own flat screen TV and DVD player.
The main area has a 52' flat screen HD TV/DVD player and games for family game nights. Additionally, there is free WIFI, a full size washer/dryer and a BBQ grill on the side.
Recently, new paint throughout the house, cookware and furnishings have been added to make your memories plentiful.
Goatfeathers, a local favorite restaurant is just across 30A and a short walk away is Gulf Place with its shops and eateries. Sunrise Coffee is one of our favorites for coffee and pastries.
The beach access is a short walk or a 2-minute drive just across 30A from the neighborhood. A wagon is supplied for you to carry your beach supplies.
The main area of Destin is a 15-minute ride away on Hwy 98 where shopping malls, restaurants and movie theaters abound.

About John O'Reilly and Amie Eubanks
Our 'family' , two couples who have been friends for over twenty years, love the beach, sunshine and sharing our newly purchased home with all of you. The white sand beaches sold us on this area, since we see a lot of 'white', snow that is, as we are from Colorado. We hope you enjoy our home, relax and make many great memories.

Have stayed in this home several times. Will likely stay again if issues are addressed.
Maintenance needed. Furniture is looking tired and the queen beds are miserable. Blinds in every room are broken and needing replaced. The rental company is slacking. Several light bulbs are out (kitchen, stairs, master bath) and the tile floors need steam cleaned. From day one our socks turned black just walking around the home. We have stayed here several times and have not had these issues in the past.
We thank you for taking the time to review your last stay. We appreciate your honesty and willingness to stay again.
We have addressed the issues with our management company and will follow through to ensure they have been completed.
Our goal is to maintain a home way from home for all of our guests!
This was a comfortable, nice house. No problems.
Thank you and we are glad you had a wonderful time at Gulf Dream!
We welcome you back anytime!

Neighborhood is Awesome!
This is a pet-lovers paradise. Dogs galore and walking them is a wonderful way to meet the neighbors. The house itself is mostly good. I’d grade it a B- because most of the blinds are inoperable and we had a very bad experience with the TV in the living room. We called Southern Vacation Rentals several times and told they are at the mercy of MediaCom. When MediaCom finally came to repair it (my husband called MediaCom himself and literally begged them) the service tech made it worse. After repeated calls, it was finally fixed just in time for our departure date. This all happened during the olympics when we had guests in town to watch the games with us. On plus side, the beds are comfortable and there is a working water filter in the frig. THat said the frig can be so loud it will wake up the person sleeping downstairs! 30A is the place to be. Bike trails are fabulous and this house is a short ride or a medium walk to the nearest beach access.
We appreciate you taking the time to review our house and we, agree, the area is one of the best! We are sorry the cable company wasn't quicker with their response time. This can be frustrating, especially when you have guests.
We strive to have a house, which all of our guests are comfortable, free from issues and are able to enjoy their time on 30A.
Thank you for telling us about your concerns, as, we want to have all our guest have a "home away" from home!
We always love staying at The Gulf Dream. It is our favorite of all the different houses we have rented in Old Florida Village. It is bright and beachy and on a quite street. We will continue to make this our go to location. Can’t wait for spring break!
We so appreciate your kind words and loyalty. We strive to make your vacation and get aways, feel like home!
We look forward to having you as our guest in the future!

House held family comfortably but had quite a few problems that were very upsetting!
Ice maker didn't work & no one called to advise us prior to arriving. The day we arrived I called them & was told they knew about it, had already ordered the part & it would be there in 1-2 days, however they failed to give us this heads up before we arrived.
The fan in the main bathroom on the 1st floor was never fixed after making them aware 2xs. The AC unit froze up one evening, after sleeping in 83degrees someone arrived just to tell us it was froze up & aprox 4-6hrs later another contractor came to fix it but a transformer in the area had blown so there was no power. It was finally fixed that afternoon, but then the cable messed up! And, BEWARE of the toilet in the master on the 2nd floor. The knob is constantly messing up & you have to take the back of the toilet off to reconnect the chain, ugh. Or it gets stuck upright & the water will constantly run.
We made the best of it, we had too! The house itself is loveley & stocked with basically everything you need, however in all of our vacations, we have never had to make so many phone calls to fix repairs!
We want to rent a house in the area again, but will only do so if we can deal directly with the owners.
The rental company said we could discuss compensation after we checked out, so we'll see.
There are many biking and jogging trails.
Shopping, restaurants, and plenty of family entertainment available for all ages.
