Property description

This Beach Combin' condo in the new European-style Village of South Walton is your affordable get-away in the heart of Florida's upscale Emerald Coast. Think 'Luxury Beach Community meets Andy of Mayberry meets Romance.' No matter what you want to do - Escape by Yourself, Reconnect with a Loved One or just Decompress - this is the place to do it. Dining in or dining out is equally easy. Arguably the most beautiful beach in the world (one of the World's Top 10 Beaches in 2011) and a lap pool and new wading pool are just a brief stroll from your door. Venturing out for discount shopping, birdwatching, deepsea fishing, live theatre, and myriad Gulf-related activities.

Upscale Beach Unit Value with Up-to-Date Features: If you are looking for the perfect place for that overdue romantic getaway or 'escape' trip, you have found it. Just a few minutes' walk from the sugar-sand beach, this quaint condo, called Beach Combin', with WIFI available in the condo or free at several local businesses, is located in the new European-style development in the heart of Seacrest Beach on Scenic Hwy. 30A, along Florida's increasingly popular Emerald Coast. Two Pools - both are just behind the building. My Beach Combin' unit now has masses of books of all varieties -- stashed in the boat shelf, a floor basket and the 'secret compartments' of the wine bar.

Pools, Beach, Cafes, Shopping within minutes. Complimentary tram that will take you to the beach in season, if you like. This unit is also a 15-minute drive to the main attractions of Panama City Beach and Destin. It is the perfect escape! Enjoy easy access to even more fabulous shops and cafes at nearby, upscale Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, including a Wine/Cheese bar & café, a book shop, bike rental and a toy store. (only a 3-minute walk),.....
Take advantage of the professional theatre in Seaside (5 min. drive) and easy access to Panama City Beach and its new family-focused entertainment areas, like Ripley's Believe It or Not, Aquarium venues and more shopping at new Pier Park. (15 min. drive)

Rare Value Option in a Luxury Beach Community: The Village offers multiple restaurants and shopping just steps from your door. And, upscale Rosemary Beach next door is full of unique shops, ice cream parlors, and the best outdoor cafes and wine bars, some with free Internet access.
The Villages of Seacrest Beach offers:
-- A lap pool at the back of my building and wading pool -- handy and accessible. -- A free tram, on schedule in season, to take you to the beach. -- Plus, there are yummy restaurants, ice cream/coffee cafes and beach shops on the green just downstairs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I'm a 'Southern Girl, born in East Tennessee and then migrated to Dallas, where I was part of a global corporation for the majority of my career. Recently, I've migrated to the consulting world, where I can use my years of communications experience to help other organizations. When I 'get away,' I've always preferred the Beaches of South Walton in the Panhandle. The stress just melts away. As you will see, I've created a relaxing experience inside my condo with the hope that your cares will evaporate during your time 'at the beach' also.

Why the Owner Chose Rosemary Beach, FL, USA:
In traveling the world, I can find no more gorgeous beaches than on the unique 17-mile stretch of Scenic 30A in the Panhandle's South Walton County. So, when I had a choice of where to spend beach time with friends and family, Seacrest Beach along Scenic 30A was the easy choice. This unique area of the U.S. can best be described as 'Laid-back, upscale Florida living meets 'Andy of Mayberry.'' Because I love the area so much....and want others to also....you will find that I will be very helpful and personally 'hands on' to answer questions, provide information and ensure your experience in the South Walton County beach area is as perfect as possible.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Convenient and secure WIFI in the condo + LOADS of books stashed in all corners. Extra-comfy, high-quality bed. Upscale, but fun and whimsical beach decor specially selected to ensure a relaxing experience for guests. The beach and pools are only a short walk away... PLUS, there is a Free tram exclusively for this property for riding to the beach...runs every 20 minutes in season...especially helpful for guests carrying lots of beach stuff.
