About the property

Ground Floor. 6 Steps To The Pool. Your Classy Beachy Attitude Adjustment!

‘Beachy attitude’ - on the ground floor of gulf place Caribbean. Newly remodeled kitchen and baths welcome you to your vacation home; with new cabinets, granite countertops and new furniture in the living room. We are located at the quaint and picturesque Town Center of Gulf Place in Santa Rosa Beach on Scenic 30-A. The area has low traffic and congestion and is just across the street from our beautiful world renown white sand beach and the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. From this Ground-floor unit #104 you have convenience galore! With no stairs or elevators to deal with, it is perfect for families and retirees. Park your car and walk straight in.

This beautifully decorated unit sleeps six guests with two bedrooms furnished with queen beds, and two bunk beds recessed in the hallway (great for kids!). With the fully-stocked kitchen, you have all the comforts of home. There are two seasonally heated pools with outdoor hot tubs for your use, one of which is only six steps from the patio. Just 15 feet to the left of the patio is a deck equipped with charcoal grills for your convenience. Free wireless internet makes catching up on email, if you must, a breeze.

Want some beach time? Take the easy stroll across the walkway (less than 50 yards from your patio) till your toes dig into the sugar white sand through one of three deeded beach accesses. Check out Yolo Board & Bike for all your recreational needs right in Gulf Place Town Center. Beach chair and umbrella service are easily arranged with several local vendors.

Need a break from the beach? Check out the unique art and crafts at the Artists at Gulf Place. Our Town Center also has the full service Santa Rosa Pharmacy, and there are numerous amenities, restaurants, and gift shops right here. We even have a full service spa, hair salon, pilates studio, and wedding planners on site. If cooking is your thing there are several groceries and fresh seafood markets nearby. Goatfeathers Seafood Market for fresh seafood or dining in is a half mile away . . . just ride your bike or take a walk.

In the middle of the town center is an outdoor amphitheater. Kids can play Frisbee or romp in the grass. Enjoy a concert in the park on Sunday nights in the summer, or Third Thursday Wine Walkabout every . . . you guessed it . . . third Thursday of the month. Also on Sunday, enjoy a church service directly on the beach at Ed Walline Park just across the street. If you're wanting some recreation, other activities onsite are shuffleboard, croquet, two tennis courts, walking trails, and biking. No better place to kick back and relax, while enjoying the charisma and charm of Scenic 30A!! Ride a bike or take a walk or run on the 17 mile paved Timpoochee Trail right out front to visit nearby colorful and beachy Seaside and Watercolor! The stores and restaurants of Destin are a short 10 minute drive from our location on the west end of 30-A, but you’ll look forward to escaping back to our less crowded and quieter part of beach life.

Gulf Place is a beautiful vacation destination - maintained with elegant landscaping and tropical feel. Here you have the beach and more - all within walking distance. You can't find a better place to relax and recharge. If you come visit once, you’ll be back!

About Allen & Janet Beachy

We're the Beachy (yes, that's our real name!) family from Arkansas who enjoys traveling and vacationing together. We have always liked using VRBO, and now look forward to sharing our condo with other families who are enjoying some time away from home, but want to feel at home just the same!

Allen & Janet Beachy purchased this condo in 2015

Why Allen & Janet Beachy chose Santa Rosa Beach

We love beautiful Scenic 30A! Not the high-rise party scene, but with plenty of pristine sugar sand beaches, entertainment, and recreation just the same!

What makes this condo unique

This particular condo caught our eye with the beautiful decor, and the convenience of being on the first floor, and close to the pool but not directly in front of the pool. Great for families with kiddos who want to use the pool, or adults who want to slip into the hot tub, a mere 10 steps from your back patio.

Charming condo and wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

We used this condo for a girls trip and it was perfect! The condo is spacious (there were 5 girls on the trip) and had everything we could possibly need! It was very clean and the complex was quiet! One of the pool entrances is right outside the patio area, which was nice. My favorite part is that the beach was less than a 5 minute walk! I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and even thought the walk was easy! Check in and out was very simple and all communication for renting the condo was very smooth! There are plenty of shops and restaurants walking distance from the condo too! I will be going back and think this condo would be perfect for a family trip!

Great Location and Grounds, Unit...Not So Much!

  • 3 of 5

We did love the Condo Complex and all the amenities it offered, especially the heated pool and the close proximity to the Beach.

The Unit itself is another story. Time for a major face lift and deep cleaning. I spent the first two days of our stay washing floors, bathroom showers, inside the kitchen cupboards, baseboards, windows, machine washing all the cushion cover, drapes and Guest Room comforter then shampooing the area carpets. Smelt a lot better upon completion. I didn't mind doing those chores but having to pay for what I needed to do seems a bit unfair.

You need to replace the mattresses, the Guest Room one had a huge blood stain, so I ended up flipping and rotating it. The bed linen was, how should I phrase it, shabby, We had King size sheets on Queen size beds. I called Sterling and they replaced them but they were worn to say the least.

Your Patio Furniture is falling apart and the Dining Area glass table top is so scratched up that it always looked smudged and dirty.

Time and some money to replace furnishes and upgrade finishes would make this Unit an outstanding Rental and I'm sure a good investment. We were tempted to rent next year because we love the area and made quite a few new friends but for the cost we were quoted and the condition of the Unit as it stands now deterred our decision so we rented another Unit in the Complex that was in better shape, and on the top floor.

Good luck with your new purchase and I'm sure you'll get everything in order and have a successful rental season.

Owner's Response: I certainly wish you would have contacted our property manager when you arrived if things were not to your satisfaction! We have indeed been busy over the last several weeks in upgrading various aspects of the condo, and will be posting new photos to show the upgrades very soon. We are checking out the bed situation, and will remedy that pronto. We are buying new patio furniture, and have just replaced the air conditioner. It's hard to try to make guests happy, if they wait till they leave to point out what they feel are deficiencies, but we can use the feedback to help us focus our efforts for future guests.

Overall we had a nice stay. However a few things could have been nicer. The fitted sheets kept falling off our mattress. There were outside chairs but we would have really enjoyed an outside table to eat meals outside. Also it wasn't really set up to cook large meals and we like to cook on vacation. We did like the close access to the beach and the 10 steps to the heated pool and hot tub! We also liked the 10 steps to the grill!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the good review. I wish we would have know of those "few things" early in your stay, and we would have tried to make them right. We will pass on the information to our property manager, and will get them addressed for future renters.

Needs new living room furniture, patio furniture and kitchen table!!!!

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights. Our first time in a condo, we usually rent a house.

First the positives...First floor, had very easy access, good parking, convenient to the beach, pool and Gulf Place.

The kitchen and baths had been updated. It was very clean. Nice charcoal grill area steps away from the patio.

Negatives....Not enough comfortable seating for 4 much less 8 that is says it sleeps. The porch furniture was falling apart. The chairs at the kitchen table were rattan, they were worn so when you sat down you went through the bottom. I would not recommend it unless the furniture was replaced.

Owner's Response: Good news! We just got new dining room chairs that our property manager says look great! We just purchased this unit last year, and want to make it as comfortable and nice as your home. Unfortunately, negative reviews on VRBO don't help as much as an email or phone call as soon as a problem is discovered, so we can remedy as soon as possible.

We arrived and walked in and the floors were filthy. The condo had an awful odor. The master bathroom had urine all over the toilet, floor and rug. There was mold on the ceiling, walls above shower and in shower. The linens were wore out and shower and sink were clogged. I called when we arrived office was closed left message next day no call back so I called again left message. Day three no call back left another message, called again that day and finely got an answer. She said oh I will send someone out. They came fixed drainage problem and cleaned shower and took the rug. I called the office back and asked to speak to a manager she said I will have him call you. I called each day we were there and he finely called the last evening we were there. Jerry Kennedy VP of operations, he had a" I don't give a crap attitude"!! He didn't care the condition of the condo and just wanted to get off the phone as quick as he could. He told me he would refund the cleaning deposit plus 20% of our weekly rent . So two weeks later I called the office and was told we would be receiving the deposit and 20% plus a voucher for future use. Well a week and a half later we only got a check for 150.00. That is not even close to what we were promised. So if you are looking for a place in Santa Rosa Beach avoid this place like the plague. I would also recommend not using the company Beach Rentals of South Walton. You will be very disappointed in the condo and their service!!!

Owner's Response: Wow! This is not typical at all of our reviews, and of our property managers! Will do some investigation. We just purchased our condo this summer, and due to occupancy, didn't have a chance to do a "deep clean" till after you left. That has now been done. I'm sorry you had a bad experience. That is certainly not our goal in our rentals!

Labor Day Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful. Our family had a great time at Gulf Place and our stay in Beachy Unit 104. Fresh and clean upon our arrival. Great location on ground floor near the pool with beach access just across the street. We will stay again when we make a trip to Santa Rosa Beach. Gulf Place offers great food and drink and has an enjoyable atmosphere.
