Fantastic! Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing you'll notice when you walk in is the beautiful view of the gulf through the palm trees! Since we love to cook, the kitchen is very well appointed with plenty of utensils and cooking pans/bowls. The best part is the large patio that overlooks 30a and the pool. We enjoyed all of our meals on the patio by candle light. The cabana is well appointed as well with plenty of towels and a super comfy king size bed with a memory foam mattress. This was our third trip to Santa Rosa and by far this is the best place we have stayed! We'll be back!

We were pleased with the location and amenities of the condo. Sitting in the sun on the balcony was comfy and warm even though a north wind was blowing.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Makin’ Memories was the perfect getaway for my boyfriend and me. We walked to Sunrise Coffee every morning, walked to the beach in the afternoon, and watched the sunset at Shunk Gulley Oyster Bar every night. I really couldn’t have asked for a more perfect location. The place itself is adorable and cozy. We would definitely love to visit again!

Great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We were really happy with the condo and location! Even in mid January there was plenty to do. We rented bikes and rode around. We played golf next door at the Santa Rosa golf club. Enjoyed the coffee shop and restaurants downstairs. The condo was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed!
