About the property

5 Bedroom/4 Bathroom Home With Private Pool, One House Back From The Beach

Villa Magnolia is one house off the beach with a private boardwalk to the beach and no worry of crossing 30A to get there. WE DO NOT CHARGE BOOKING FEES.

This beautiful 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house is perfect for your vacation needs and is just steps from the beach. It has its own private swimming pool that can be heated.

Enter into a welcoming ground floor that leads to two private suites, both with king size beds and large TV's.

On the second floor, you will find the living/dining area and adjoining kitchen with breakfast bar. The kitchen has been updated with granite countertops and new stainless appliances to make meal preparation a delight. You will love the openness of the living area and kitchen which allows everyone to be together whether they are cooking, eating or watching TV. There is also a 4 bed bunkroom for the kids with a full bath - all behind a closed door on this floor.

The top floor features two more bedroom suites. The oversized Master Suite features a private deck, king size bed and ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed as well as its own private bathroom.

Enjoy the views of the Gulf from the second and third floor balconies. The private beach walkway is directly out your front door and just steps to the sand.

There is also a 2 car garage to store all your beach stuff safely. We keep 7 beach chairs, an umbrella, a gas grill, a roll away bed, and 4 bikes in the garage. These items are all available to you and your guests. There are also TV's with cable in all rooms except the bunk room and free wireless internet service. All TVs (except master bedroom TV) are Wifi enabled and stream Netflix, Amazon, etc.

We are located on the South Side of 30 A just 1/2 mile from the blinking red light at Seaside and 1 1/2 miles from Publix grocery store. We are also only a mile from Seaside and minutes away from the HUB at Water Sound and Rosemary Beach.

About Matt Carullo

My family has been coming to 30A for many years and we absolutely love it. When we came across Villa Magnolia, it immediately stole our hearts. We have 4 children and we knew it would be a place where we could make many precious memories. Our picture above is all of us in Rosemary Beach (just a short drive from our house) !

Matt Carullo purchased this house in 2016

Why Matt Carullo chose Beaches of South Walton

Villa Magnolia is one house off the beach. With so many kids in our family (and our extended family), it is always a challenge to get everyone ready, loaded up in the car, and down to the beach. This house is great for us because there is no street to cross and within seconds you are staring at the light blue waters of the gulf. If we forget something - and that happens all the time, we can pop back to the house to grab it. So convenient!

The other huge thing that we love is the location. It's practically in the middle of 30A and we are up and down the beach towns almost every day. The combination of having Seaside right down the street and a short drive to Grayton - Rosemary - and the new HUB at Water Sound is really nice because we can enjoy all of the things to do within minutes.

What makes this house unique

When we first walked into the house - the main room had us both saying, "ahh this is really nice." It is an open concept with the kitchen right off the living room area. We love being together and that main floor gets a ton of use because we can relax - cook - watch TV and never feel like we are separated. However, the house is big enough to have some quiet time if needed as well - we know how little kids can be loud at times ;-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your house with us! Right on top of the beach, great big pool and plenty of space to spread out. The garage had everything we could ask for; chairs, bikes, boogie boards and plenty of buckets and shovels for the kiddos. Hope to be back next year!

Very clean, well maintained, and accommodating to our family.

  • 5 of 5

We loved how close the house was to the beach. The private walkway made it easy to get back and forth. The house was roomy for all 11 of us. It was very clean and and felt like home. We enjoyed our time at the house and the beach!

Amazing location! Clean and inviting space!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier with our stay at Villa Magnolia. The owners were so welcoming and were available by phone for any and all needs we had. They were so great helping us make the most of our stay, recommending restaurants etc. It was much appreciated. The house was wonderfully appointed and clean upon arrival. The location is the true Gem of this place. You are literally steps from the walkway stairs down to the beach which is a must when you have small kids. We were able to run back and forth to the house in the less than 5 min and we made multiple trips to the beach each day because it was so convenient. It is a short bike ride into seaside, but there are also some great places even closer you can walk to. We had such a wonderful stay enjoying the beach, the pool and the surrounding towns of Rosemary and Seaside. We would definitely stay again!!

Fox Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, there were 10 of us and we had lots of space. Kitchen has everything you need to cook any meals you want. Easy walk to the beach and umbrella, chairs, bikes and toys for kids are there for your use. Pool is fantastic, very clean and plenty of chairs. From the balcony you can see the ocean and nice to sit there in the evening and watch the world go by. We look forward to being there next year.

Great vacation beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home for our large family! Beautiful home, plenty of space and stocked full of anything you could need... fully stocked kitchen, beach chairs and toys, four bikes, and plenty of board games for the rainy days. The beach was so close, it was never a problem to run back to the house to grab whatever was needed. But the best part was the owner Matt! He was so super friendly and helpful and very quick to respond to any questions we had. We would highly recommend Villa Magnolia!

Great Family Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Seaside, and we really didn't know what to expect. Turns out that this house was in a perfect location for our family. There are four bedrooms (2 on the third floor, 2 on the first floor) and then a bunk room on the second floor. It ended up being the perfect size for our family because we had little children that slept in portable cribs, but I would say this fits 4 couples and 4 children (that can sleep in bunk beds). The proximity to the beach is what really sells this house. We could walk from the door to the water in under 5 minutes. The beach area in front of the house is amazing, and very family friendly. If you want to go into town, it is less than a mile to all the Seaside shops and restaurants. We rented a golf cart which I would recommend unless you like to walk or ride bikes. Its difficult to find parking with a car, so don't plan on driving into Seaside with your car. The main road (30A) into town gets very backed up from 11 - 2, so plan accordingly.

Definitely recommend this rental for large family wanting to spend a lot of time at the beach and exploring Seaside. We really enjoyed it.
