Diane Seither purchased this house in 2015

Why Diane Seither chose Santa Rosa Beach

Visiting the beach was wonderful growing up but living in a vacation home in a quiet neighborhood off Highway 30A was the ultimate dream for me. Several years ago while sightseeing communities along 30A, I came across Forest Lakes. The picturesque community with brick lined streets and quaint craftsman cottages, the calm serene lake and walking trails impressed me so much I decided to buy a lot and build a home there. It is the perfect contrast to my busy city life, enabling myself, friends and family to enjoy occasional visits to one of the most beautiful beaches on the Gulf Coast with sugar white sand, gorgeous sunsets and gulf waters with breathtaking colors of blue and turquoise. The beach is so enjoyable any time of the year and there are many unique beach communities along 30A, offering, music, dining, outdoor cafes, and shopping. It's a perfect house, charming and upscale, but not overwhelmingly big and it's minutes to the beach.

What makes this house unique

4 bedroom home with 3.5 baths great for couples or multiple families with dual master bedrooms and 2 rooms for children or additional adults. Owner can provide beach chairs and beach toys for the kids upon request. Location is convenient for additional activities such as shopping, movie theatres and dining in nearby Destin, a 15 minute or less drive.

Paradise in Santa Rosa!

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion/summer vacation was picture perfect! Not only was it wonderful to be with our children, grandchildren, etc., this home provided the perfect setting. The pictures do not do it justice and every detail in the home was thoughtful and comfortable. The beaches are beautiful. The community has a very nice pool with a perfect area for grilling and gathering if you are a large group. The only regret was that we didn't book it for just a little longer!

The house was very impressive; a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This house made our trip so enjoyable. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and every amenity you could think of was available to us in the house. I would definitely rent this house again and recommend it to family and friends.

Nice stay with friends and familiy

  • 5 of 5

We were a total of 4 couples and 1 guy. The house was big enough for all of us. House was super clean and in perfect conditions to receive guests. Communication with the person in charge (prior arrival and after departure) was spot on. It is located in a nice neighborhood (quite and peaceful), the complex pool is also very close (behind the house). Beach access point are less than 1 mile, very convenient. I will definitely consider this house for future trips.
