This well maintained and lushly landscaped property has 2 pools - each with a hot tub. There's also a sand volley ball court, several gas grills & picnic tables, plus a private tennis court. BEST of all, the boardwalk out front leads to the famous 30A bike/hike trail just steps from the Spooky Lane Beach Access. (We have a storage unit with beach cart, umbrellas, chairs and toys for your use) This beach is semi-private and so is never too crowded. Also, Gulfview Heights Beach Access is just a few blocks to the East, where parking and restrooms are available. The keyless entry with your own code eliminates keeping up with keys. Drive right up to your door and park 2 cars in the lighted covered space under the unit. There is more parking available on-site as well. New wood and tile flooring as well as granite countertops have been installed, new furniture (including memory foam mattresses), new fridge, dishwasher, microwave, full size washer & dryer, small appliances, window treatments plus 3 new flat screen TV's, DVD players, cable and WiFi. Freshly painted throughout. This 'living large' 1400 sq. ft. town home offers a fully stocked kitchen with corner pantry and adjoining laundry room. The granite breakfast bar adds additional seating and leads into the roomy dining/living area and half bath. A new Sealy Queen Size Sofa Sleeper offers additional sleeping space. Sliding glass doors lead from the living area to a covered deck with table and chairs, overlooking the West pool & hot tub and the volleyball court. Join in the activities, or sit and watch while you relax on your front porch. Upstairs , you'll find two big bedrooms and plenty of closet space. The Master bedroom has a King bed and the dual sink bath has a deep jetted tub - Jacuzi for Two - and a separate shower. Off the Master is a private deck with table & chairs and a beautiful treetop view with a peek of the gulf. The second bedroom has two Queen Beds and its own full bath, walk in closet, and windows that overlook the tennis court.

About Amy Porter Baker
We moved to the Destin/South Walton area in 1992 from Dallas. You can get folks out of Texas, but never can get the Texas out of the folks. However, we love this area and our two children are grown and have settled in to Northwest Florida to stay. Now that there are Grandkids involved, I guess we'll never leave either! Amy Porter Baker is our on site property manager. She is a dedicated professional and she does a wonderful job taking care of our guests!
Amy Porter Baker purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Amy Porter Baker chose Santa Rosa Beach
Our family loves 30A - we refer to it as '30Ahhh'. If you've spent time here before, you understand why. And if you haven't been down yet, you'll understand when you get here. It is the most beautiful, artistic, scenic place in the world and it soothes our soul. So when we had the opportunity to buy this town home in March 2014 so near the beach, we jumped on it. We plan on it being a long-term vacation home that our current and future families will enjoy. The challenge was that it had to be totally renovated, from the walls out and the floors up, so good that we've got our kids and their kids that we could put to work!
What makes this Townhome unique
We love this place. The amenities and grounds at Legends offer so much relaxation for old and young, and the close proximity to several beach accesses make this place perfect. Another plus are the high ceilings, spacious rooms and large closets. Even the laundry room is huge. It feels like a home and not like a condo or rental. The deck off the Master Bedroom is private and will have it's own table & chairs, but if you want to socialize, you can join your neighbors sitting on the deck off the living room downstairs. It overlooks the West pool and the volley ball court. (Easy to supervise the grandkids from there!) Can't wait to quit painting and go sit . . .

This place was perfect for our family. It was a short walk or bike ride to the beach. The pool and hot tub were right outside our door. We will return to this place when we come back. Amy was available anytime. If we had and questions she got right back to us.
Thank you, Jodi! I appreciate your feedback. Please let me know when you're headed to our area in the future. We'd love to have you back as our guest!
We stayed at the Legends for a week in March and couldn't be happier. The location was great. The townhouse was clean and well supplied with necessities. Amy was great to work with and even texted us to let us know we could get in early. The week we were there was a little chilly, but definitely beat the nor'easters we avoided in NY! Not a complaint, but a heads up for people who don't like stairs..there are a lot. If planning to do laundry while there, OMG the washer and drier are huge! Having two balconies was great also. My husband preferred tanning on them instead of going to the beach. I, on the other hand, love getting sand on my toes and watching the dolphins. I would definitely recommend this rental.
Thank you, Teri! I appreciate your thoughtful feedback. It means so much! Please let me know when you are headed back to our area. We would love to have you as our guest!
Great location and Amy was amazing!
The unit and location are priced well! The downstairs closet with the beach supplies was wonderful and very well stocked. We loved having the pool so close and being able to walk to several restaurants, shops and the coffee place. Kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. Amy was very helpful and gave great recommendations since she lives locally. Communication was easy and she responds quickly. We will definitely return!
Thank you for your kind words. You are always welcome and I sincerely hope you will come back soon!
Beautiful! It was nicely maintained and very comfortable!
Loved this house! Also loved how close to the pool we were and how our deck overlooked the pool. Amy, the property manager, was amazing to work with! She went above and beyond my expectations and I was so impressed! The unit also seemed to be the only unit that provided all the beach towels that you could possibly need! We had friends that stayed in two other units in this complex and didn't have access to the storage closet of beach awesomeness like we did. 😊
My only suggestion is (if you are a family that cooks while on vacation) you may want to bring some kitchen tools with you. The kitchen is big and beautiful and perfect for cooking in (and a grill so close to the unit and a fresh fish store right up the road-we ate in more than we ate out:) I just found it needed more pots, pans, and dish towels. Not a huge deal-just something to consider😊
Perfect vacation spot!
Perfect location and atmosphere for a family vacation. The owner checked in with us several times during the week to make sure our stay was perfect. This is a townhouse that I most definitely will stay in again in the near future. Perfect family vacation spot.
Thank you, Emily! It was our pleasure to host your vacation and I hope you will come see us again soon!
All my best,
All of the conveniences of home!
This condo is wonderful! Very spacious, clean and well equipt! Since I couldn't find my 4 year old grandson's beach toys before we left Ohio, it was great to find some just waiting for us in the shed. The full size washer and dryer were a blessing. The only dirty clothes that I brought home were the outfits on our backs!
All of the neighbors that we had encountered, were very friendly. This is a family oriented complex.
Amy is fabulous! From her welcoming note, to checking on us mid-week to see if everything was okay.
I HIGHLY recommend this home for anyone visiting the Santa Rosa Beach, Destin area.
Hope to be back soon!
Thank you, Joan! I sincerely hope you will let us know when you return to the area. We would love to host your next vacation!
In addition to the beach (there are three accesses nearby), pools & hot tubs, volleyball & tennis courts at LEGENDS, there are so many other attractions nearby. Gulf Place at the corner of 30A and 393 is an easy walk and has fun eateries, shops and frequent concerts. Fabulous food and shopping is along 30A in both directions, just short walks or bike/car rides away. We are close to several world famous golf courses and deep sea fishing and dolphin cruises can be booked in Destin. There is also a riding stable nearby that offers trailrides. Beach activities and rentals are available in the 30A area, and you can jog or bike (bring your own if you'd like) along 30A's scenic bike/walking path - just across the street. This path runs 19 miles through the beach communities of Blue Mountain, Grayton, Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove, Alys, Seacrest and Rosemary Beaches. Also a must for your 'things-to-do list' are touring the rare Dune Lakes along 30A and also visiting Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, Grayton Beach State Park, Eden Gardens State Park and Point Washington State Forest. There are many others, but these are the closest (and the best). The famous Silver Sands Outlet Mall is just to the West of 30A toward Destin and is a fun day in itself.
