Co-owner is a high-end designer who spared nothing on this stylish and oh-so comfortable penthouse. With a busy life style and two kids, she designed it with every family member in mind, to make it an ideal vacation getaway. This condo has become a favorite for young families, families with teenagers & grandparents, executives, empty nesters and honeymooners.

Here’s why…


SeaView Penthouse has an in-town yet private location. This new Gated community consists of three four-story buildings with two spacious units per floor and plenty of secured parking. The penthouse level is the only floor that captures a spectacular Gulf Coast ocean view and the easy elevator access is a convenient step away to the front door. To the rear is the Port Washington National Park with miles of walking and biking trails and the front borders 30A and a 15 mile bike path (a favorite family outing). Just 2 miles west enjoy boutique/trendy shopping, dining and activities of Seaside and Watercolor; and to the east you’ll find Eastern Lake, golf and events in Rosemary Beach. There’s both fine dining and barefoot casual restaurants within walking distance. We’ll send you our favorite picks and we keep a hand-made “How best to enjoy your vacation” album in the condo. Equal distance to both Destin and Panama City – you’re close to amusement and water parks, go cart racing and the famous Sands Outlet Mall with hundreds of popular name brand stores. And we're just 400 yards from building to beach.

Dedicated access gets you to the beach quickly through a private nature trail and we provide our folding marine dock cart to carry all your beach 'stuff' easily to the surf. The Gulf ‘Emerald Coast” beaches are world renowned for their crystal clear aqua-blue water and white sugar sand. Beach chairs and umbrellas are easily available upon arrival.

Casual Elegance

The Ocean view and open air dining and family room area is perfect for entertaining and large family gatherings. There’s dinner seating for 11 pp; 8 comfortably at the dining room table and 3 full back barstools around the extended granite island. It’s such a pleasure to entertain/cook in the well-equipped Gourmet kitchen with a beautiful view of the Gulf coast. There’s even a small wine/martini bar set up conveniently located between the kitchen and dining area. (It’s easily portable to move to the patio, remove for non-drinkers, or to keep out of a toddler’s reach)

The Master suite has a king bed with a 15” CA pillow-top mattress that is “to die for” - like “sleeping on clouds”. There’s an ocean view from the sitting area, and the private bath area dons a large Jacuzzi, separate dressing area, two vanities and separate shower. The 2nd bedroom can be considered a second Master suite with a king sized bed/ pillow-top mattress and private bathroom. The third bedroom sleeps 4 comfortably with one queen and two trundle singles; it’s a favorite for the kids with a festive sailing motif and the perfect set-up for video games. The curtains are made from real sail cloth and there’s a colorful adjoining bathroom with double access to the foyer. All rooms have state of the art electronics, flat screens TVs/DVDs. There’s also a plush queen sleeper sofa for additional guests who will wake up to the sound of waves when the surf’s up.

Need more options? - there’s a 2000 square foot pool; NEW 50' HD flat screen and sound bar with Direct TV in the family room; closets with games, books and puzzles, and all the amenities you are used to having at home. Cell phone and free high speed Wi-Fi internet coverage is great and there’s a postal store for all overnight services just a block away.

Come create great memories at this unique get-a-way in South Walton and experience why most of our renters are repeat guests.


“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Your place by far exceeds any place we’ve stayed in FL including the Ritz Carlton in Miami South Beach. Pure luxury with beautiful views! We felt right at home while enjoying a much needed “Getaway”…

“This place is nothing short of amazing! Everything is here…We had everything we needed. This is definitely a place we would love to return to… “

“We had a grand time in your beautiful place. The decorations are gorgeous and everything is here from coasters, candles to cookie sheet! Our favorite activity was the beach walks…”

About Preston Riner

Welcome to our vacation home away from home! Throughout the year, we lead busy lives in Atlanta and always look forward to getting away to our Family Retreat. We are a family of three, with an extended family of too many to count! After years in the Corporate IT and Mktg/Communications world, we are working on a family internet business to allow us a more flexible lifestyle and time to spend with our rising highschooler and aging parents. The condo was built in 2005, is decorated nicer and much more comfortable than our home in Atlanta, so it doesn't take long to unwind in a sophisticated yet casual setting that feels like paradise. We use it to rejuvenate our family bonding, for fun with other couples & families, and even for just the two of us when we are in need of rekindling romance - something that easily gets sidetracked with hectic schedules. Our life priorities are Faith, Family & Friends and our Seagrove getaway allows us to honor this.

Preston Riner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Preston Riner chose Seagrove Beach

For us, we wanted a beach location, not in a large city that was an easy drive from home...just 6 hours from Atlanta. We considered many areas including Hilton Head, Amelia Island, Kiawah, and several other coastal cites in GA & South Carolina. The biggest difference with the East coast locations is the beaches. Nothing compares to the white soft sand and the clear pristine aqua blue waters on the Gulf coast. Sea Side is a bit too busy for us, but its perfect 2 miles away so we can walk or bike ride there for their many activities. The equal distance between Destin and Panama City affords more travel options with multiple airports. And for our wannabe professional golfer in the family, the golf courses are plentiful with good fairways & greens and good prices. For me, I never have time to shop at home, and being a bargain shopper, I can't beat the selection and prices at the hundreds of name brand stores in the outlet malls.

What makes this condo unique

Top 10 things we most enjoy at Sea View Penthouse:

10) Takes just a few minutes to walk to a private beach via our dedicated walkway

9) Hearing the sound of the waves at night from the patio when the surf is up

8) Eating on the balcony with a ocean view while keeping an eye on the kids in the pool

7) Movies, sports and music on the 50' HD TV!

6) Choosing between a 10 minute bike ride to Seaside or a closer walk to Seagrove Beach

5) Entertaining & family dinners for 12+ people and having everything a chef could ask for in the kitchen

4) 15 minutes from a Greg Norman golf course and a Pete Dye course

3) Minutes from the best fine dining and barefoot dining around

2) Going back and forth from beach to an incredible pool; perfect for laps

1) Sleeping on a cloud in heaven - the master king size bed with a 15' pillowtop mattress is to 'die for'

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a surprise we had when we arrived. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home! It made our vacation extra special. We have been coming to this coast for years now and this was the most relaxing trip for all of us. Watching movies was better than the theater. Even cooking was fun in your kitchen. The beach was still beautiful two weeks after Hurricane Dennis. We'll be back

The Penthouse Condo was a great place to vacation. Very spacious, clean and comfortable with enough room for family and visiting friends. It was well equipped with everything you would need for your stay. The owner was very accommodating and quickly responded to any questions or requests we had.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us during February and I'm happy you had a nice vacation. It's always a pleasure to have guests that are thoughtful and professional. I hope the warmer weather, sand and surf provided a much-needed break from the elements farther north! I look forward to hosting you again in the future. Preston Riner

This was our first time using VRBO and it was great! The location, the view, the space was everything as advertised. We could not have been happier! Everything was top notch AND we were pleasantly surprised to find that there was a closet that had beach supplies (tents, wagon, chairs, and things like that) that were for our use. The condo was spotless and beautiful. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. We are already planning when we will be back.
