Five Bedroom, five and one half bath, newly renovated luxury home; amazing views
Bula is a beachfront home with three master (en suite) bedrooms and a private walkover just steps from the waters edge.
The first floor is our "Fun" room. It has a 65" curved TV with surround sound and a L-shaped sofa perfect for the best of movie watching. There is also a bar area with a beverage center and ice maker; a game table for playing cards and boardgames; and a ping pong table. A large full bath with a steam shower completes this floor.
The second floor has a large living space: living room with a gas fireplace; dining room that seats ten, and an elegant seashell chandelier; and, a well-equiped kitchen with a bar that seats four. Behind the kitchen is a large laundry room with washer and dryer, a utility sink, and an extra refrigerator. A beautiful half bath sits across from the stairway. The Master Suite, also located on the second floor, has a king-size bed, a gas fireplace, amazing views, and french doors to the deck. Off the bedroom there is a large walk-in master closet and ensuite bath with two sinks and a separate vanity with a lighted make-up mirror and stool. The walk-in shower for two has a bench seat, a shower head at each end, and a rain can in the middle.
The third floor has four bedrooms--three beachside. Two suites anchor the corners of the house. The Sunrise Suite is on the Southeast corner and has views in both directions, a walk-in closet and a bath with a double vanity, walk-in shower, and private toilet room. The Sunset Suite sits on the Southwest corner and has a beach view as well as a beautiful sunset view. The ensuite bath has a walk-in shower and a private toilet room. The Queen bedroom is in-between the two suites on the beach side of the house and has a Queen-sized bed. This room shares a bath in the hall with the bunk room. The bunk room is on the front of the house and has two sets of bunk beds, each with individual lights for reading. The hall bath has a shower over a tub and a private toilet room. All three beach-side bedrooms on this floor have french doors that lead out to the deck.
The first floor deck is just inches above the sand where you can enjoy a totally unobstructed view of the Gulf. One side of the deck has a swim spa/pool (appx. 14ft. x 8 ft.) The second floor deck has a dining table with seating that will accommodate 10; a conversation area with a love seat, two comfortable chairs and a low table; and off the master bedroom side of this deck we have two chaise lounges for relaxing. The third floor deck has two large swings. The public parts of the house and the decks are all outfitted with speakers and Sonos.
Along the west side of the house private steps lead from the beach to the first floor deck, the grilling area, the outdoor shower, and our great sand room. The sand room is assessable from the outside of the house and is a great area for you to hang wet towels and store sand toys and chairs.
There is NO street parking in Gulf Trace which makes it a very private area. We offer off-street parking for three to four cars.

We are originally from Arkansas but have lived in San Francisco, where we raised our two kids, since 1987.
Carla purchased this House in 2014
Why Carla chose Santa Rosa Beach
We spent summers on the panhandle of Florida as kids and we brought our kids on family vacations as they grew up. We used to rent this house when our kids were younger so we have lots of memories here.
What makes this House unique
We rented different houses along the 30 A corridor but this house was one of our favorite because of it's unique location on 30 A (private, yet within biking distance to Seaside) and because of the house's orientation on the beach which allows for views up an down the beach as well as out to sea. We were delighted when this house came on the market! We've worked for over a year to update the house to a luxury property to be enjoyed by our family and hopefully yours.

What an amazing place! We had a blast and just enjoyed the pure beauty of the house and beach. Thank you
Simply put, we can’t wait to go back. Perfect location, perfect amenities, perfect layout backing up to the perfect beach. We absolutely loved it!
Better than we could have imagined!
This home and the location exceeded all of our hopes for our family’s vacation! The home is in pristine condition with no expense spared. Each bedroom feels like the master suite and the views from every part of the house are just breathtaking. The beach is extremely private and so beautiful. It felt like we got to experience the best kept secret in this part of Florida. We’ve stayed in nearby Destin and Rosemary beach before and they don’t compare. We will most definitely be back!
We had a wonderful week in a wonderful home with wonderful friends!
Great beachfront house
Lovely house. Well appointed. Wonderful porch for sunset viewing. Most comfortable mattress we've experienced in a rental.
A beautiful property with amazing amenities. Top of the line kitchen, great showers, even an outside one. Very clean and we'll kept. Amazing ocean views. The owner really cared about us having a great experience, and we did. Best vacation ever!
Bula Beach House is located in the private sub-division of Gulf Trace, surrounded on three sides by Grayton State Park and on the fourth side by the Gulf of Mexico. This exclusive location affords privacy and makes for an uncrowded beach. However, if it's the thrill of a crowd that you crave, Seaside is approximately two miles away with its restaurants, shops, and yes, throngs of beautiful people. Conveniently, there is a bike path from the Gulf Trace neighborhood to Seaside to avoid traffic in the busy summer weeks. Additionally, Destin is a short drive away and offers many activities: water parks, miniature golf, recreation centers, an outlet mall, movie theaters and more.
