About the property

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

Villa Magnolia (formerly Roman Holiday - sold Oct 2016) is as close to Gulf Front as you will get without being there and paying for it!

This awesome 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house is perfect for your vacation needs and is just steps from the beach. It has its own private beach access and its own private swimming pool that can be heated. Just step out your front door and you are at the beach.

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 den/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 den and kitchen which allows everyone to be together whether they are cooking, eating or watching TV. There is also a 4 bed bunkroom with a full bath behind a closed door on this floor.

The top floor features two more bedroom suites. The oversized Master Suite features a private deck and king size bed. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and 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 50 steps to sand.

There is also a 2 car garage to store all your beach stuff safely. We keep beach chairs, umbrellas, gas grill, a high chair, roll away bed and 3 bikes in the garage that are available to your guests. There are also TV's with cable in all rooms except the bunk room and free wireless internet service.

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 that we could make many precious memories.

Matt Carullo purchased this house in 2016

Why Matt Carullo chose Seagrove Beach

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 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!

Shared this rental with three other couples (all very active seniors). Found the house to be clean, neat and very convenient to the beach with adequate parking. Plenty of amenities and situated near a very enjoyable section of the beach. Short drive to supermarket, shops and restaurants. All and all, very accommodating for four couples. We'll be back.

Best Beach Access I've Ever Had

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time staying in this house. It is spacious, has excellent beach access, and is close to so many great shops and restaurants.

The house has large bedrooms with TVs, ceiling fans, comfortable beds and nice sized closets. We were so comfortable we never felt like we were in a "rental". The bathrooms are plentiful, very clean, and have very nice finishings. Multiple families can easily stay here and never feel like they are right on top of each other. The open kitchen, dining area and den are very large and could fit a large family easily. The appliances in the kitchen are excellent, and made meal prep easy. Having a private pool was a plus! It was nice to come back from the beach and swim in the evenings.

The beach is access is the best I've ever had. It is a short, easy walk. If I forgot something at the house, it was no trouble to run back and get it and quickly be back at the beach.

The location is also excellent for shopping and eating. You are really, really close to Seaside, and only about 10 minutes drive to Rosemary Beach. We loved riding the bikes (provided) around town. The wide sidewalk goes from the street near the house all the way to Seaside, Watercolor, and beyond.

I would highly recommend this house to my friends and family, and I do plan on staying here again!

Beachfront excellence!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great. We had children who loved the bunk room. Being on the beach side of 30A was an absolute plus. Had kids ranging from 16 to 6 and everyone had plenty of their own space. The heated pool got plenty of use and the few steps to the beach were used even more. Would recommend this home to multiple family vacationers and bicycle riders and also convenient to good restaurants. It is also close to Seaside and Watercolors. Will be going back next year!

So Convenient!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect. The bedrooms are spacious, the pool is big for the beach and you are just steps to sand. Kids loved the bunk room and the kitchen had everything we needed, including a Keurig. I have stayed at the owners previous house and when he sold it he sent us an email so we decided to try this one. We were not disappointed.

We use VRBO multiple times per year, and this is our first bad experience. The proximity to the beach is nice, but there were many problems with the house. First, we couldn't get in the house and waited for hours to have the locks picked. Then, the pool heater didn't work - even after we spoke with the owner prior to booking and he assured us it would...That was very important for our family. Two bathrooms didn't have hot water and one was missing the shower door. We arrived to a clogged toilet, rusted shut doors, lots of broken blinds, among other things. Many of these are minor issues that can be dealt with or repaired, but the owners response to the problems was the most disappointing of all. He did nothing to fix or make-up for any of this.

Owner's Response: I do not know where to begin. This particular traveler called me 3 days before the rental. They claimed they had booked another home but found out they had misrepresented it and could I please do them a favor and rent my home for the same price. I politely told them I could not. Three phone calls and sad stories later, I relented. I should not have. Without getting in to much detail, they complained from the time they got there until after they left. I explained before they got there that we had just renovated the upstairs bathrooms to put in a tank less water heater and the gas company had to come out on Monday to put in a larger meter for the house and pool. Being the week of Thanksgiving they were not able to get the meter put in to run the pool. There was hot water in all bathrooms and no rusted doors. The management company sent me video of steam from the hot water coming from all bathrooms. The entire interior of the house was painted a year ago. The were looking for a discount on the front end and a refund on the back. There are times when things go wrong and I will always own up to those. We bought this house in June after owning a house right down the street for 5 years. Please see VRBO # 243357. You will see in the five years we owned that house there was never a bad review. When we sold it, I even went the extra mile of transferring the # to the new owners. Please do not allow this traveler to stop you from renting. Please look at the 5 year track record I have built.
