Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Heavenly Sunrise is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath beachfront home with ocean views from every room in the house except the three bathrooms. This home is a comfortable 1800 square feet with approximately 1000 feet of uncovered, covered and screened decks with unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico.

The home is comfortably furnished with a large family or group in mind. The top floor boasts a million dollar view of the sugar white beaches and Gulf of Mexico from the master suite, living room, dining room, kitchen, screened porch and uncovered sun deck. The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of cookware and serving ware to serve many.

Most common small kitchen appliances are provided for your convenience. The first floor has three additional bedrooms, each with a covered deck and million dollar view of the Gulf along with two additional baths and the laundry room.

Heavenly Sunrise faces north-east for the most incredible sunrise views imaginable. Built in 2004, this home was constructed to the most stringent Florida Coastal Construction Zone building standards. The home was designed to provide breath-taking views and deck access from every bedroom and common area. Decks were designed for sun-lovers, shade-lovers and those that tend to attract the attention of biting insects common to Florida beaches i.e. no-see-ums or mosquitoes.

If you are looking for an un-crowded paradise for your family or friends, Heavenly Sunrise will more than deliver. If you dream of a Florida vacation on unspoiled beaches, without all of the tourists, tourist traps, traffic, and drunken crowds; Heavenly Sunrise will accommodate those dreams. If you imagine private midnight strolls or early morning jogs along the Gulf of Mexico, or the sounds of the waves crashing while the whippoorwills chant to wake you to your own private daily viewing of the Almighty’s splendor… Heavenly Sunrise is sure to please!

About Sharon Brewer

I'm from Tallahassee, but have lived in Atlanta for 25 years. I grew up fishing, crabbing and sun-tanning on Alligator Point at my Granddaddy's beach house. I built this house to accommodate my family and my husband's family. We have spent countless nights watching the shooting stars, eating roasted oysters and watching our kids grow up on the beach! Those family memories will outlast me and become traditions! We have traveled the world, but nothing compares to a family vacation at this beach. The privacy and the safety can't be found on another beach. I hope that you make some lifetime memories with your family and friends, also!

Sharon Brewer purchased this house in 2005

Why Sharon Brewer chose North West Florida

This is the 'Forgotten Coast.' Home of the last 'Real Florida' beaches. The area was protected by State and Federal Parks, Forests, and Wildlife Refuges many years ago, so it remains natural and pristine. The locals still fish for a living, and development was never allowed to run rampant. It is one of the few beaches in Florida where you can still find shells, sand dollars, starfish, coral and other sea life. The porpoises play along the shore with no fear of careless boaters, jet skis, and throngs of tourists. The pelicans and herons fish the shallow surf, as you watch in awe. The beach remains very much like the photographs from 65 years ago, when my grandfather owned a home on Alligator Point. To this day, his home still stands. No condos, or chain hotels or souvenir shops have taken its place. It's a trip back in time to 'the real Florida!'

What makes this house unique

Privacy, privacy, privacy! As a native Floridian, I am not fond of crowded tourist traps. This location is incredibly private. Most days you will have the entire beach to yourself! You can watch your kids play on the beach without fear of traffic, bad influences or strangers. During low tide, even the smallest children can play in knee deep water on one of the many sand bars. Because this is a low-impact beach; overpowering waves and undercurrents are rare. The sand dollars, starfish, coral and sponge and seashells are abundant.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness, our trip was fantastic! My family (my wife, my 19 month old and myself) went with another family (another couple with a 19 month old) and had an absolute blast. We saw maybe 6 different groups of people on the beaches the entire time we were there (all of them friendly). The beach was perfect for our little curious toddlers. There were hermit crabs and other sea creatures scurrying along outside by the dozens and it was fantastic to see the kids try to make sense of it all. Also, I would consider myself a C+ fisherman when it comes to the few times per year I can visit a lake near where I live however we had a lot of luck with some cheap fishing poles ($20 from the local one stop store across the bridge) and just fishing from the shore in between the sandbars. The one down side (which is not a surprise if you've ever been to Florida) is the number of biting insects outside. My wife and I took a walk along the beach one evening (you can walk out about 100 yards on the sandbars when the tide is low) but I didn't put on bug spray...my mistake. My ankles were bit but we warned the other couple of this before they went on their walk the next night and they said they had no problems at all. The house was clean and spacious. The living room had plenty of space and the decks were awesome for midday naps. Every room looked like it had a TV in it but nobody really had time to watch since the screened in porch was perfect for evening wave watching.There were attractions across the bridge if just going to the beach every day isn't your thing but if you're looking for a vacation where you can really spend time with your family and friends, this is it. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! We also prefer to watch the splendor and majesty of creation when we are there instead of TV! If I could change one thing about Florida...it would be the bugs! We have learned a trick or 2, however. If you go out at sunrise or sunset...you MUST use bug spray, Skin So Soft or some type of Eucalyptus lotion. I guess bugs get hungry at breakfast and dinnertime too!

Like having my own private pardise!

  • 5 of 5

This was likely the best vacation we ever had! The house was just as pictured. It was clean and well-maintained! The kitchen was fully stocked and we had plenty of bath towels, linens - everything we needed - unlike most rental houses with just the bare necessities!

The thing that was so incredible about this house was the VIEW! WOW! from every room you had an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico! Then when you walked outside on the decks and screened porch - it was amazing! During the week - we had the entire beach to ourselves...like our own private paradise! On weekends you would see some families and fishermen come down for the day - but they were down the beach a ways!

We LOVED,LOVED, LOVED this place! We will be back every year!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. Two families stayed for the week and there was plenty of room. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves and the beach is really nice. The kids had a blast catching crabs and playing on the beach. There are plenty of places to go and see that are a short drive away. We would definitely come again!

Heavenly Sunrise

After arriving we found everything to be just as it was described. Sunrises were beautiful. It was perfect for our group of 6. The seafood was amazing.

Wonderful family vacation at a quality vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at The Heavenly Sunrise. The house had everything as described in the advertisement. It was pleasant to work with Sharon and have confidence in booking a quality vacation property. Even with the weather that impacts the Gulf, this property was well maintained. By booking this property using VRBO, we were able to work with a person that cares about other people and not just a large management company seeking profits. The house was within walking distance to the beach, even for our parents and children. For our family, it was good to disconnect from some of the electronic devices we are tied to. Alligator Point is a natural beach that hasn't been built up for tourists, but it allows guests to enjoy the creation of our Creator. There are a few smaller activities available nearby, but the walks on the white sandy beaches are very memorable. We also enjoyed eating BBQ at Hamaknockers in Crawfordsville. One evening, we happened to meet another couple on the beach and they said it was like having our own private beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jeremy S. Before I respond to your review, I must say that for the first time EVER, I have had neighbors that live on Alligator Point year round contact me to tell me what incredible, conscientious visitors you were! What a blessing you were to my neighbors. For that , I say thank you! Your review mentions all the things that set The Heavenly Sunrise and Alligator Point apart from the thousands of other listings... Old Florida, no condos, no neon lights or tourist traps, no raked and dredged beaches...just long white sandy beaches, in a private, all-natural setting to spend time with your family and friends...admiring the majesty of the works of our Creator!
