About the property

This Incredible 1 Bedroom That Sleeps 4 Easily is in the Heart of Seacrest.

Located in one of the most sought after areas on 30A, this centrally located condo in Seacrest Village offers our guests the best of everything; access to the beach, outstanding pool with amazing cabana facilities, area concerts, activities, local specialty shops, and walkable access to fabulous restaurants in Rosemary Beach, Seacrest and Alys Beach! This amazing, fully renovated, property offers an upscale feel in a community where you can walk and bike to some of the most desirable attractions on 30a.

Unlike other rentals in “downtown Seacrest,” this condo features a brand new full size kitchen. This clean line modern kitchen has white high gloss cabinets, a cooktop, a high end convection/bake microwave, a dishwasher and a large refrigerator with an ice maker. The kitchen is stocked with all essentials and elegant dishes should you want to prepare a meal at home.

To maximize space, there is a custom built queen size Murphy Bed with a high quality mattress and lovely bedding. The king size bed offers a great night’s sleep on our high thread count linens and designer bedding. The custom luxury chandelier adds elegance and romance to this gorgeous bedroom.

The living and dining areas are designed with an “upscale contemporary” flare. The living room features designer furniture from Room and Board, contemporary side tables and sleek black leather chairs. Also featured is a beautiful custom designed cabinet that includes a beverage/wine refrigerator. As a courtesy to our guests we provide free beverages and wine at a nominal price. A 55” Samsung Smart TV (on an articulating mount) makes this space extra special allowing you to watch your favorite movies from various locations in the condo. This condo also has high speed internet.

The jewel of this condo is you are right in the middle of everything! Look out the windows and enjoy a concert in the green space/amphitheater, rent a bike and ride around the area, shop in one of the many unique stores, or enjoy a fabulous meal in any number of restaurants. You can be at the sandy white beach or at the new pool behind the condo.

We know you want to hit the beach first and shop later so here are some

necessary items to hold you over until you can go shopping.

About Laurie Sheinkopf/David Berndt

Hi there, we are two friends who love 30A. We renovate and design stylish, one of a kind 30A rentals for guests to have memorable vacations. We have two lovely properties on the gulf and now we are thrilled to offer a condo in the heart of everything.

Laurie Sheinkopf/David Berndt purchased this condo in 2015

Why Laurie Sheinkopf/David Berndt chose Florida North West

We purchased this property because of its amazing location. You are seconds away from bike rentals, coffee shops, amazing restaurants, great shops, a cool candy store, a liguor store and more. You are a five minute walk to Rosemary beach and Alyce beach both with lovely shops and restuarants as well. You are a tram ride away from Seacrest Beach or the 12,000 gallon Lagoon Pool. You can walk to both in five to seven min. This is one of the best locations on 30A.

What makes this condo unique

This renovated condo is like staying in a upscale hotel. It has a complete kitchen with white high gloss cabinets, quartz counter tops, a custom made Murphy bed, stylish furniture, a one of a kind beverage area, luxury linens, gorgeous lighting, a 55" smart TV, and an upscale living and dining room with designer furniture.

We know you want to hit the beach or pool first and shop later so here are some

Disappointed to say the least!

  • 2 of 5

This was our second year to stay at showstopper. Last year our stay was great but this year the condo has declined overall.

As most people, I needed to do work while on vacation but the Internet was down the entire week we were there. I had to go to the coffee shop

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you were disappointed. The condo is actually in the exact same shape as it was when you stayed there the last time. The only two things you communicated to us that you were unhappy with was One, not having enough towels which we would have happily sent more in had you told us when you arrived. The second was the internet. The only two things we can not control are the weather and the internet. There is only one internet provider on 30A and it does not even let us pay for expedited service. Our goal is for all our guests to have a wonderful vacation. We handle all issues that we can control in a more than timely manner which is why we have so many return quests.

Great location but needs another lock

  • 4 of 5

I thought your condo was very neat and clean and much like the photographs. It's a very close walk to shops, restaurants, and bike rentals are right outside the door. The beach is a close walk if you're not carrying too much stuff. The parking is easy, and the pool would have been nice had I been visiting in the summer and is practically right outside the door. Like everyone else, I thought the complementary drinks were a nice touch.

However, the first thing I noticed when I walked in was a lack of a way to lock the door from the inside. Anyone with the code to the door could get in at any time. So imagine my surprise when, as a single woman staying alone, I'm lying in bed on my second morning and without so much as a knock on the door a man barges in claiming to be a painter. The situation could have been very bad. I would highly suggest installing an inside lock like hotels and most other condos for the safety of your guests.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you didn't see the large knob that locks the door from the inside. I wish you had contacted us with your concerns when you checked in and we have told you how to lock the door. We have never had a guest not feel safe in the two years we have had this condo especially since this an expensive deadlock. Thanks for bringing to my attention that I should include how to lock the door from the inside in my check-in formation. It is a fairly simple process. We always welcome guests contacting us with any questions. As you can tell from our reviews we act quickly to handle any issues.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife and 1 year old son, and we couldn't have been more pleased with it. Aside from being extremely cozy and roomy for a small family, it was located so close to everything that we enjoyed (restaurants, pools, bike rentals and the beach). Also, Laurie was so helpful and polite, which made the stay even better. To make a long story short, we can't wait to go back (if they'll have us).
