About Beth

We are the Luce family from Brownsburg, Indiana. We bought Summer Breeze after we absolutely fell in love with the 30a area after three trips to the area. We love the the stunning Gulf views of our unit. What we think you will love is how truly friendly and amazing the Santa Rosa Beach area is. The community is a special place to come to and leave the 'real world' behind for awhile.

Beth purchased this condo in 2012

Why Beth chose South Walton

The view is amazing and after experiencing the laid-back, family-friendly, resort-like atmosphere of Gulf Place, we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. So we made it our home and our goal is to have repeat vacationers who stay at Summer Breeze year after year and make special memories of their own. We have a 'memories book' in our guest welcome guide in the unit and would love to hear stories of how your vacation and stay went.

What makes this condo unique

The view of the aqua blue water against the backdrop of Summer Breeze puts you at ease instantly. Waking up and having coffee in the morning looking out over the Gulf is one of our favorite things to do.

Cozy, immaculate condo in the perfect location on 30A.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed a week in this condo, and had an absolutely wonderful time. From the moment we walked in we knew we were staying in a home, as opposed to a typical Summer rental. The condo itself is clean, neat, and well maintained. The location is absolutely perfect, nestled between the intense traffic and bustle of Destin, and the high rises of Panama City. Right next door is scenic Seaside, a short bike ride down the ample bike trails. But the best feature is, of course, the immediate access to the beach. Our children range in age from 1-7 years old, and we had no problem at all making trips back and forth from the condo to the beach. Everything is convenient, laid back, and well suited to anyone seeking peace, accessibility, and as much beach time as they want. This property is highly recommended and I hope to return!

Exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo just perfect for our family of four. The condo itself was very clean and the furniture and bedding all seemed very new. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook a meal and you can enjoy it out on the patio or at the bar top countertops. Wonderful stay. Looking forward to another stay next year!

Great Location, Not a ton of privacy.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay! The pool was great when the kids needed a break from the beach. The beach access was right in front of the condo. There were plenty of food options within walking distance that we rarely got in the car. The condo was clean and very nice. The only reason I didnt give this a 5 star rating, was that there was no door to the "bedroom". I planned on the children being in a bunk bed in the hallway, but I didn't realize that my husband and I would not have any privacy. We spoke with other guests staying in the condos and they also thought it was odd and stated that their layout was the same, but they did have doors. Maybe it's an odd thing to point out, but it definitely caught us off guard. It didn't prevent us from making amazing memories! We truly enjoyed our trip.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback Beth and we hope you return soon. We discount all return stays. We pride our home at the beach on being close to the water, clean, comfortable and most of all, affordable (which can be a very hard combination to find on 30a). A small family, couple or single can stay comfortably. Our bedroom area is an alcove area. In the future we plan to add a wall, doors, etc. so that we can divide off this area from the hallway completely. Again it gets a little tight when travelers try and pack 5 or 6 people into the condo which is 640 sq ft. However as noted in your review, the access to the water being right across the street for a fraction of what you would pay at a hotel or Gulf side house/condo is a huge advantage. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope to see you again!

Perfect location, immaculately presented

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a total of 5 nights, and loved every minute of it! It is bright and airy, and was perfect for our needs.

The view from the balcony was lovely, looking out over the pool and the lake, over towards the beach, and we spent lots of our time sitting there reading or watching the turtles in the lake. The beach is literally across the road too.

The shops and restaurants are a stone's throw away, and I highly recommend 'pizza by the sea'.

Another big plus for us was the amount of contact We had from the owners - they gave clear accurate instructions for how to access the property on arrival, and always responded quickly when I had any queries.

We had a great time and would definitely stay here again if we were in the area!

Second time even better

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here so obviously we enjoy it!

Definitely would recommend to a friend.

Great location, great service from the owners and a well appointed condo. The upgraded kitchen is super. Love the location. We are only a family of 3 but you could have 4 very comfortably. King bed and WiFi are a must for us and they have that covered. Nice view as well. Love Stinky's, Bud and Ally's and the Doughnut hole. Always do an afternoon in Destin at AJ's on the patio. Food is so so but the harbor watching is awesome. As others mentioned if you need a lot of privacy be advised that there is no door on the master bedroom. Hope to be back down this year and if we are we will stay here again!

Gulf Place Cabanas is a spot with everything within walking distance. Summer Breeze is a Cabana with everything.. We ate at the Perfect Pig, La Playa @

Santa Rosa Gulf @ Beach Club.There are some small Breakfast @Lunch places also. ALL are within walking distance.

We arrived on the 21st of Nov. and left on the 28th. The first three days were cool but by Wednesday it was old Florida weather. The pool was surprisingly

warm and NOT crowded. The beach was nice and also NOT crowded. November looks like a GOOD time to go Santa Rosa..

This was the first time we were in Santa Rosa and really enjoyed our stay.

Ann and Jim from Sarasota,FL.
