GULF FRONT PROPERTY WITH UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS!!!

High Pointe Beach Resort offers a gated community that is the perfect Gulf Front Area. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! This unit offers the best aqua blue views of the Gulf which is only a few steps from anywhere on the property. Located between Rosemary Beach, (known for its Wedding Destination, Fine Dining and Shopping, outdoor cafe's and wine bars), and Alys Beach, (one of the newest and most attractive beach communities on 30A), you are within steps of everything you could ever want.

Highe Pointe offers a 6,500 sq. ft. Tropical Lagoon Pool with waterfall, hot tub, kiddie pool, 2 clay tennis courts, playground,shuffleboard, Golf Swing Practice, and several BBQ areas. Crabby Steve's, a bar/restaurant that overlooks the Gulf is the only outside Tikki Bar/Restaurant in this area. You can sit and enjoy a burger and a beer while watching the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see. Or try one of the seafood specials of the day that are fantastic!

Our 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom unit is a corner unit in the West Building, directly located on the Gulf, on the second floor which offers an unobstructed view of the Gulf and Beach that anyone would call AMAZING!!! This Condo is approx 2000 sq ft, which is very large for a 3 bedroom Condo. Plenty of room for the whole family!!! There are only 16 large 3 bedroom units in High Pointe with an unobstructed Gulf View. The span of view is from the living room across the dining/kitchen, and then some on the side of the unit with the wrap around deck.

You will look in awe at what there is to see. Dolphin swimming, Skate and smaller fish swimming in the waters below, and children and families having the time or their lives. Kayakers, paddleboarders, and swimmers all enjoy the clear blue waters and white sand.

Another Huge advantage to staying at High Pointe is the private beach owned by High Pointe. Access is limited to owners/visitors at High Pointe which lessens the crowds during the summer peak season!!!

There are two Master Bedrooms, both offers a king size bed and private Master Bathroom. But best of all, both have access to the outside deck and phenomenal Gulf views right from your BED!!!. You can lay in bed and see the Aqua Blue waters of the Gulf!!! The Guest bedroom is large and has two Queen Beds and a TV. This unit will comfortably sleep 8. Hand Crafted Beds made by a local Artisan and Sterns & Foster Mattresses allows for a great nights sleep. OUr linens are of the highest quality and make you feel like you are staying at a SPA!

There are several health clubs and spas within walking distance for those who want to keep their body and mind in great shape. The nineteen mile bike/walking path just outside the gate offers those who are into exercising a great place to enjoy the outdoor activities. For the Golfer, there are many courses with a very short drive. Some of the best in the South!

If you are looking for activities for the Children, Panama City Beach is less than a ten minute drive to the East, and Destin is within thirty minutes to the West. Between High Pointe and Destin are many small villages/communities such as Water Color, Seaside, Watersound, Grayton Beach, and many more. All offer unique dining, shopping, and weekly events that will please everyone. And all within a few minute drive. Again, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!

If you are looking for the ultimate family vacation spot, look no further. This area is perfect for everyone's needs.

My wife and I have been renting properties in Seacrest since 2007 and we strive for excellence for our guests. We try to offer our property in EXCELLENT CONDITION, so our guest can enjoy and appreciate their visit. Each winter we upgrade and spend time and money into keeping our properties in great condition. We will be doing the same with 21W at High Pointe. We recently sold our other condo at High Pointe and purchased a new construction, 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath across the street in Seacrest. This House, built in 2016/2017 is 2500sq ft, and only a few minutes from High Pointe. Please take a look at VRBO.COM/1006948.

DON'T FORGET THE VIEWS, VIEWS, AND MORE VIEWS!!!

I Thank you for inquiring about this property and I hope to hear from you soon!

About Joe Prato

My wife and I have been married since 1989 and love the beach. We live at the Jersey Shore and we spend our time living at the beach. When we travel, we like to go to destinations that have a beach. We love The Beaches of South Walton so much that we now call it home for six months of the year during the off-season.

My wife is a Retired Special Education Teacher and I own a Computer Technology Business.

We feel extremely fortunate to be able to own properties in such a fantastic area!!!

Joe Prato purchased this condo in 2015

Why Joe Prato chose Seacrest

We purchased our first property at High Pointe in May of 2012 and immediately knew this was an extraordinary place. The location is better than any in the area. Our amenities at High Pointe are far superior to anything around us. We can offer an amazing vacation spot where families can come in for a week, and never have to get in the car if they don't want to. Everything is within walking distance and the Food, Dining, Shopping, and Beaches are the Best of the Best.

Now we own two and are enjoying the property even more!

We also own another property at High Pointe, Unit 315. You can find this at VRBO Listing #412849.

What makes this condo unique

The Remodel in 2015/2016 made our 21W Condo the best property to rent at High Pointe. With two Master Bedroom Showers, you will feel like you are at a SPA. The unobstructive views from every window make you stare at the amazing views every time you look. And our sunsets are as unique and beautiful as those found in Key West!!!

Owner's Response: Sally, I'm pleased that you were able to make it to our property after the close encounter with Irma. We on the Western side of the Panhandle were very fortunate that we were spared any problems with the storm. I was glad that we could offer you our house across the street on the Saturday of departure, since you did not arrive on your anticipated time based on watching where the storm was going. High Pointe and Unit 21W make for a great combination in that the location and the property of High Pointe is amazing, and our unit reflects everything about the Seacrest, Rosemary, Alys Beach Area. We designed our remodel with High End, Upscale, amenities so our guests will feel like they are visiting a Tropical Island Resort, with all the benefits of not having to travel as far. Our area offers the best in Restaurants, Beaches, Aqua Blue Water, and anything you would find at the most popular Carribean Resorts. I thank you again for your kind words and I hope to see you back soon.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

The decor is beautiful and incredible, the condo is spacious, the views are amazing and the location is perfect! Our family of 6 adults and two small children were extremely comfortable and had more than enough room. Joe, the owner, is quick to respond and answer all questions. High Pointe Resort has everything you need for a wonderful family vacation! We will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: We appreciate all the excellent reviews received. Our goal is to accommodate our guests in the best possible way and to allow for a wonderful vacation. We take great pride in our properties, and by doing so, our guests enjoy, respect, and take great care also. High Pointe is a perfect location between Rosemary and Alys Beach, at about 1/3 to 1/2 the price. We are fortunate to have Crabby Steve's, a unique restaurant/bar with amazing Gulf Views on premise and only a few steps away. Our private beach offers the least amount of guests per square foot than any along this populated area. We thank you for you visit and hope you will return soon!!!

Amazing Condo with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful! The pictures don't really do it justice. The community itself was in fantastic shape as well. Everything was immaculately cleaned and in great order. The beach here is really hard to beat vs other places we have stayed on 30A. We can't wait to come back here again! Also, Joe is very easy to work with and the condo itself is very obviously kept in fantastic shape, both by the cleaners and by the owner himself.

Good

  • 4 of 5

For our family of six plus a teenage babysitter it was a beautiful condo. I thought the third bedroom with two queens was a bit claustrophobic leaving a crowded space. Surprised there was no garbage disposal but there was enough space in kitchen for our pantry items.

The beach was beautiful and service for our chairs and umbrella was top notch.

We won't be going back because we liked another location better for our family BUT Joe was so easy to work with that I recommend him to others.

Owner's Response: After receiving a 4 Star Review for our property, it bothered both myself and my wife because we strive for excellence with all of our rental properties. Our rental properties are always at the Highest Standards of any comparable property in the area. This is because we strive for excellence. To respond to the two points made that apparently were not to complete satisfaction, we have no control over the size of our rooms in our condo. It is a large room that fits two queen beds comfortably. The two queen beds nicely fits up to four guests, and since our guests staying in our unit with this review had 7 people staying, the extra bed was needed. We have rented two 3 bedroom units at High Pointe since 2012, and have never had one complaint about the bedroom with the two queen beds being “Claustrophobic”. As for no garbage disposal, this was a business choice we made when we gutted and did a complete remodel. Garbage Disposals are great if you are the owner using them. We have had rental properties for over two decades, and the number two call for repairs is a Garbage Disposal. Guests tend to stick food that should not be put in a disposal, utensils, coins, and various other items that children or adults don't realize can go down Garbage Disposals. So we get a call and spend hundreds of dollars to have them repaired each year. So we made a business decision not to install one because it is not really an inconvenience to throw garbage in the trash can for one week’s visit. Everything else, by reading the review, seems great. Most owners would look at this as a good review, but when you are consistently getting 5 Star Reviews, and you spend more money and time keeping your property in excellent condition than most other owners, anything but a 5 star review is disturbing. After thinking about the review and letting everything settle in, we have decided that some guests, no matter what you do for them, are never fully satisfied. Regardless of the extra amenities and time and effort you put into the property, some people can’t be totally pleased. It would have been easy to just let this go, but my wife and I want guests to understand that if you are an owner who really cares about their properties, anything less than a 5 star review is not only taken seriously, but also personally. We have been renting properties in this area since 2007, and have only had two reviews that were not 5 star. We strive for excellence, and will continue to do so.

Beautiful view and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our first visit to Rosemary Beach and absolutely loved the

Beautiful Condo and the entire area! This condo was perfect for my husband, myself, our son and daughter-in-law and two young grand children. Directly on the beach with great views and access to everything.

We will definitely return - hopefully very soon!

Beautiful property and best location!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived Joe the owner had given us all the instructions we needed to make sure it was a smooth process. The Condo is stunning and met more than our expectations on overall beauty, beach view and location to beach, pool and restaurant! We had a great time and will definitely book with them again!
