Table linens, dishes, utensils, and glassware for 16 are provided. The dining room table seats 8, with room for 4 at the island, and 4 more on the front porch. Of course all of the small appliances needed are provided as well: a 4 slice toaster, coffee maker, mixer, and heavy duty blender!

A full sized washer and dryer are located in the first floor laundry closet. The rear entry of the home (closest to pool and beach), features a cubbie storage area for your beach bags and shoes. We have provided 8 beach towels for your use. In the outdoor storage, you will find a wagon, small cooler, beach toys, six beach chairs, and an umbrella. The outdoor shower is conveniently located next to the outdoor storage to rinse the sand off of everything, and everyone.

The first of five bedrooms is located at the front of the house, across the foyer from the powder room. This bedroom features a custom queen bed, walk-in closet, and on-suite bathroom that is handicap friendly. The walk-in shower features a Delta massage shower head and a separate hand-held shower.

You will find three bedrooms on the second floor, all arranged for maximum privacy. At the top of the stairs, the bunk room is straight ahead. It features two sets of custom built twin-over-full bunk beds to sleep six. There are four under-bed storage areas and a chest of drawers for clothing.

Down the hall to the left is a beautiful queen bedroom with seating area, walk-in closet and access to the second floor wrap-around porch. This bedroom is a serene, light filled nautical hideaway.

As you come up the stairs on the second floor, there is a common bath that serves the bunk room and second floor queen bedroom. This spacious bath features a tub/shower combo perfect for bathing the little ones. The vanity features two sinks and ample under counter storage.

At the end of the hall on the second floor is the master bedroom.

Cloud Nine is only two blocks from the resort style 12,000 square foot Seacrest Lagoon Pool. Complete with waterfalls, fountains and two bath houses, this is the largest pool in northern Florida. In addition to the amazing pool and sugar-sand beach, the shops and restaurants of Rosemary Beach, and the Villages of South Walton are a short walk away. You can rent bikes, shop, grab a cup of coffee, or an afternoon cocktail, and get ice cream for the kids. You will want to be sure to visit Charlie’s Donut Truck in nearby Alys Beach at least one morning. Get there early, as the gourmet donuts sell out quickly! The kids always enjoy a trip or two to the Sugar Shack for candy as well. Seacrest Sundries is a quaint general store and café that has just about anything you need in a pinch. There are multiple award-winning restaurants within walking distance, including La Cocina Mexican, La Crema Tapas & Chocolat, and the Cowgirl Kitchen. During spring and summer evenings, the Villages of South Walton feature live outdoor entertainment.

We hope that you will find our home and the 30A area as magical as we have. It is the perfect place to make the memories of a lifetime. We will do everything possible to ensure you have a heavenly stay on Cloud Nine!

About Tom and Wendy Mueller

We are from the St. Louis, MO area, and just like many families in the STL, our family has been vacationing on Florida's Emerald Coast for 20 years. Five years ago we decided to embark on a new adventure and began the process of building our vacation home. Cloud Nine was completed August 1, 2016.

Tom and Wendy Mueller purchased this House in 2016

Why Tom and Wendy Mueller chose Santa Rosa Beach

We fell in love with the pedestrian lifestyle of Seacrest Beach and the surrounding areas of Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach! Once you are settled for the week with groceries, you won't need your car. Walk or bike to local restaurants, shops or the luxury resort pool. Call the tram or walk four blocks to the beach. Seacrest Sundries is a perfect little shop to pick up the odds and ends that you may need during the week. Riding bikes along Scenic Highway 30A towards the coastal dune lakes is amazing! If you venture a little further, the shops and restaurants at Seaside are always great to experience.

What makes this House unique

Our home is newly constructed in 2016 - and it lives well! Not only will 16 guests sleep comfortably, they will also be able to visit comfortably. And, find a little quiet space when needed! Our large outdoor storage located next to our outdoor shower is great for storing coolers and beach gear. The unique cubbie area near the rear entry is the perfect place to leave beach bags and flip flops - keeping your vacation organized. The living room, third floor recreation room, and four porches provide plenty of places for small groups to splinter off when they need a little time away from the rest of the group! Relaxing on the third floor deck and watching the sunset over the rooftops is a perfect way to end a day at the beach!

                                                                      We just returned from a week at Cloud Nine and had a wonderful vacation! The house is fantastic and there was plenty of room for the 12 people in our party. We all had space to spread out. The best part was definitely the 3rd floor covered patio. We ate several dinners out there and relaxed in the evenings after a day at the beach or pool. The location of the house is also great - it is easy to either take a tram or walk to the beach or pool. We also enjoyed walking to Rosemary Beach or Allys Beach for dinner and live music. All in all it was an excellent stay!

                                                                      Beautifully decorated, great location to the pool and beach, really enjoyed relaxing on the deck

                                                                      This was the best girls trip ever! There was plenty of room, we each had our own bedroom and bathroom. We enjoyed coffee in the beautiful downstairs living room each morning. Easy access to shopping, pool and the beach. We spoiled ourselves with no cooking, and enjoyed the wonderful restaurants nearby. We are all looking forward to our return visit!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Beautiful home that was obviously very well thought out! Great location!

Plenty of space, and the kids loved the bunk room. All of the finishes and decor were beautiful, and the 3rd floor deck was great for hanging out as a family and eating Thanksgiving dinner! We loved being able to ride bikes everywhere, as the location of the house is super convenient. Thank you!

                                                                      Beautiful home with perfect color scheme and clean lines. Very comfortable for a large family or multi-family stay. Tom & Wendy were very prompt and offered thorough information to answer any questions we had. They were great to work with! The area was great and we enjoyed all aspects of our stay. Our favorite part of the home was the third floor outdoor dining and living area. Layout was well thought out and information regarding the home and area was given in detail. We enjoyed the bikes (provided amenity) and were thankful to not have to bring our own beach chairs and toys. The beach was only a short trek and trams were still available through the end of October. We opted not to take the trams, and, instead, enjoyed our short walk to the beach each day to take in the surrounding village as the neighborhood was quiet and those vacationing were hospitable and pleasant. We would absolutely choose Cloud Nine for our next vacation to the Seacrest area!!

Beautifully decorated and extremely immaculate throughout. Plenty of room for our crew of 6 adults and 5 kids. Wendy was very helpful and available for any questions we had. The community of Seacrest is just as amazing as the house was. We will be back! Best stay we have ever had anywhere.
