About the property

4 bedroom 3 bath gated Townhome w/ heated pool in Sea Haunts on Santa Rosa Beach

NEWLY RENOVATED!!! We are a Sunday to Sunday turnover property due to increased traffic coming into 30A on Saturdays. We completed $120,000 of renovations to our home. We just upgraded doors, windows, flooring, bathrooms, kitchen, furniture, mattresses, etc!

Sea Haunts in Santa Rosa Beach / Destin is a beautifully decorated 4 bedroom 3 bath gulf front townhouse in a gated community along the prestigious 30A that comfortably sleeps 10 people. Enjoy spectacular views of the sugar white sand beaches and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Located ON THE BEACH at 30A in a quiet gated community with amazing views of the beach and fountain from each floor. Two beachfront balconies overlook the Gulf of Mexico and 1 deck that leads directly over the dunes to the beach. No hauling beach toys and coolers blocks away, just walk out the front or back door and in seconds your feet are in beautiful white sand!

If you frequent 30A, you will love our area. We are in a quiet residential part of 30A where the beaches are quiet and private, yet we are still walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Guests will appreciate all of the room this townhome has to offer. The open floor plan on the second level has the kitchen, dining area, living room, and full bath. The kitchen has everything you could need. Fully renovated with new cabinets, gorgeous quartz countertops, top of the line new black stainless steel appliances makes this a dream kitchen. Grab a cup of coffee from the Keurig or make a gourmet breakfast and head to the covered patio to enjoy waking up to the ocean views. Make a picnic for the beach or cook dinner to save a dime, this kitchen is equipped with everything you could need. The living room provides seating for eight and a flat screen TV and a dining room table that seats six. Windows on the side and back walls provide a beautiful view of the fountain on one side and the ocean on the other. Through the door, there is a private balcony offering 90 degree views of the Gulf Mexico, a beautiful fountain, and lovely dunes.

The Master Suite sleeping accommodations are on the third floor and provide guests with a King bed, flat screen TV, and a full Bath. The bath features a beautiful waterfall feature in the spacious newly renovated shower, a double vanity, quartz countertops, and a top of the line toilet. Walk right out the sliding glass doors to your private balcony with gorgeous ocean views. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves and pleasant ocean breeze. Another bedroom with a queen size bed and flat screen TV, perfect for another couple or the young ones completes this level.

On the first floor, guests will find two sets of bunk beds. Each bunk bed has a full size bed on the bottom and a twin bed on the top in the first bedroom. The 2nd bedroom has a king bed with attached bath leading out to the patio. Take a few steps and feel the sand beneath your toes. There is also a full sized LG steam front loading washer and dryer for your convenience and a brand new water heater.

The property is a gated community with a pool, jacuzzi, and grill area. There are numerous flat screen TV's, as well as fast WiFi, so guests can stay connected and share their fabulous Santa Rosa Beach experiences with friends and family.

Our home's location and layout is perfect for large families, or 2 families traveling together, or teenagers that want their own space. 2 bedrooms are on the 1st floor and 2 bedrooms on 3rd floor allowing privacy for the kids or for each family. Our 2nd floor is an open concept living area with kitchen, dining and full bathroom.

Our home is the only 4 bedroom 3 bath gated townhome in this area. We have gorgeous 90 degrees ocean views and even a beautiful fountain right outside our home visible from our gorgeous new windows. When you walk off the patio, you are at the sand, and a short boardwalk takes you over the dunes to the ocean. We also have a pool and jacuzzi which is great for kids or night time fun! Our home is in a residential area, so the beach is very private and quiet, yet it is only 5 miles from Destin or Seaside so you can still enjoy the restaurants and amenities these areas have to offer.

In addition to the beautiful beach, staying at our home includes a large swimming pool (heated certain months of the year) and a year round hot tub with umbrella tables and lounge chairs and grills. Perfect for kids and adults! Our home is in a gated secure community that offers a large green space for children to play games, ride bikes and enjoy the outdoors while parents relax in the covered gazebo.

We are located in the quiet low key side of 30A with fewer crowds but yet still in walking distance to amazing restaurants, locally made ice cream shop, seafood market and cute stores for fun shopping. Ride a bike, walk or run along the 30A path, visit one of the beautiful pristine state beach parks, horseback ride or fish. Santa Rosa Golf and Tennis is nearby and open to the public. If you are a shopper, the San Destin outlets are just 15 minutes by car. We are close to grocery stores - Publix and a local gourmet healthfood store and a walmart with great homemade smoothies and baked goods. Everything you could want in a vacation!

We only book Saturday to Saturday in the summer high season.

Our favorite restaurants in the area:

~Highland house (less than a 5 min walk) offers amazing food. We love the hamburger and the fried green tomato benedict with duck fat potatoes.

~The perfect pig (5 to 10 minute walk in gulf place) The entire menu is amazing and they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner

~South of Philly 30A (10 minute walk right behind gulf place) A local favorite for cheap but tasty philly cheese steaks, hamburgers, etc from a true Philadelphia native.

~Louis Louis (Less than 10 minute drive) This is owned by the same owner as The Red Bar in Grayton Beach and has just as great food with less wait!

~Fat Daddy's Pizza (Less than 10 minute drive) Awesome pizza joint that also delivers. KIt is better than Pizza by the Sea (Although pizza by the sea is closer)

~Pompano Joe's (10 to 15 minute drive) Caribbean Style Seafood right on the beach

~Baytowne Wharf (10 to 15 minute drive) A great place to take the kids and watch the boats from the harbor or play boardwalk style games and even a merry go round for the little ones

~Cantina Laredo (Grand Boulevard less than 15 minute drive) Amazing Mexican for when you get sick of seafood. Get the table-side guacamole!

~The Bay (Less than 15 minute drive) Another local favorite. Amazing seafood and sushi and right on the water. Great pier for the kids to play on.

~Mitchell's Fish House (Grand Boulevard less than 15 minute drive) Another amazing fish and seafood restaurant

~Stinky's (5 minute drive) Great seafood and cute lake setting with pier. They also have a fish market

~Trebeache (5 minute drive) Another great seafood and steak restaurant on 30A

Additional amenities include: Private end unit townhome, gated community, square feet: 1800, community: Santa Rosa Beach / Blue Mountain Beach / Destin / 30A, pool and jacuzzi

About Brooke Svoboda

We are The Svoboda's (Mike, Brooke, and Parker Svoboda). We purchased this townhome in the spring of 2015. After living in Hawaii for several years and returning to the mainland, we missed the beautiful beaches and activities that Hawaii had to offer. After spending some time on 30A, we knew the emerald green, crystal clear waters and white sand beaches were where we wanted to be. We explored the area and found that 30A was the best location and these townhomes were perfect. They were gated and felt very safe for our young baby, Parker. The heated pool and jacuzzi were perfect when the baby had eaten enough sand for the day, and the location was away from the traffic and the beaches were private and quiet. Just a short drive took us to Seaside or Destin to enjoy all the amenities that these areas had to offer, but we didn't have to fight the crowds. We are currently doing renovations to our home and hope to be finished by summer 2016. We live here part of the year and rent it out the other part of the year so that others can enjoy our little slice of heaven.

Wonderful Residential Area, Lots within walking distance!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a very nice residential area and Brooke was fantastic to work with! It is an end unit and the closest to both the beach and the pool which was wonderful for our 3 little ones. The top 2 bedrooms share a jack-and-jill bathroom that the grandparents used. We stayed on the ground floor so we could be next to the kids. There is an extra fridge on the ground floor that we didn't need but I am sure would come in handy for some people. The mattresses were comfortable, especially the master (by MIL had me ask what type/brand it was). There is a storage area outside with beach toys and boogie boards that my kids loved - they hardly used the ones we packed. There is green space in front that the kids could play on. Lots of restaurants were within walking distance which was fantastic if you didn't want to drive. GO TO PECAN JACK'S!!! The ice cream and treats were amazing - we went there 4 nights! And Stinky's had amazing seafood (it is a short drive). The binder in the kitchen also had lots of helpful information.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at Sea Haunts! The townhome was wonderfully appointed and the location is just perfect!! The beach was amazing and it was very nice to have the pool to relax in as well. The owners were extremely helpful and we're looking forward to returning for another stay soon! Thanks for having us!

Excellent rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This townhome could not be in a better location. Directly on the beach, access to the pool is awesome and within walking distance to the square. All the updates have been done with quality in mind. Upon arrival everything was clean, well stocked, and as shown in the pictures. We love that it is in between Destin and the Watercolor resort if we want more touristy things to do. While those beaches can get super crowded, this one did not. Great for families with little kids and adults that want to enjoy the beach.

We travel with 4 adults and 4 kids. The kids loved the bunk beds. Plenty of room for all 8 of us to eat together. Brooke has gone above and beyond to list things to do, answer any questions, and overall make the stay as comfortable and easy as possible. This is our 3rd year at Santa Rosa Beach.. but the first time we would stay at the same place more than once. Thank you Brooke for a wonderful relaxing time at a great spot!

Better than the Bahamas!

  • 5 of 5

This was our trip to the Gulf, and it was absolutely amazing! The beach front views were absolutely gorgeous. The layout of the condo was perfect for or three families to stay together. We ate dinner on the porch almost every night. The kids absolutely loved being able to walk two blocks to grab some ice cream afterwards. The clear waters and amazingly soft sandy beaches made this even better than our trip to the Bahamas last April. The location and accommodations could not have been any better. We will definitely be back next summer.

We loved Sea Haunts. Beautiful accommodations. Perfect access to a beach that was not crowded.

  • 5 of 5

We just got home and are already making plans to return next year. Brooke really goes out of her way to make sure everything goes perfectly. Our party has 5 kids ages 4-8. We had plenty of room and the access to the pool and beach made trips back and forth super easy. Our goals for this trip were to have a view of the water and to be close to a beach that was not three rows deep. This property was a home run and delivered on those goals and more. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to get away and enjoy the beach.
