My wife and I visited Santa Rosa Beach several times over the years, and when one of the units (that we had stayed in) of Gulf Place Cabanas became available, we decided to buy it.

We wanted for our three young children (ages four, seven, and less-than-a-year) to have a place they could come for years, and remember fondly. We hope one day our condo becomes theirs.

We had also vacationed in Destin and Panama City Beach in the past. While both are charming in their own right, we just like to get away from it all, and not be where the beaches were so crowded.

Nevertheless, Destin and PCB are still just a short drive away from Santa Rosa Beach. They are nice spots to visit, just not as peaceful.

There is PLENTY to do in Santa Rosa Beach and along Highway 30-A if you'd rather not 'do' Destin or PCB.

You MUST visit Seaside and Rosemary Beach while you are here.

CHRIS purchased this condo in 2013

Why CHRIS chose Santa Rosa Beach

We bought this property in January of 2013. We are continuously making improvements and strive to be the BEST that the condo can be.

We are continuously updating our list of recommendations that we send each of our renters.

You will NOT regret staying here. You may even want to purchase a place here on the Emerald Coast, like we did !!

After all, we too are former renters here at this exact Gulf Place Cabanas condo.

Just in the past 3 1/2 years we've had guests from Alabama, Arkansas, Quebec-Canada, Saskatchewan-Canada, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, our home state of Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. We sincerely hope everyone enjoyed their stays on beautiful Highway 30A.

What makes this condo unique

* No more than probably 75 yards from the beach as the crow flies (140 yards walking-- it takes me around 155 steps from our oversized patio)

* SAFE-- we have never heard of any major violence in the area that you may see in larger towns. We've never heard or know of any crimes whatsoever, for that matter.

* The Greenway of Highway 30-A: you can bike the entire distance and really don't have to use your vehicle the entire week. I believe the Greenway is 18-miles long, not including the spur trails. If you do not have a bike, please take a stroll. Very relaxing and therapeutic.

* Plenty (a dozen or so) of restaurants within walking distance

* Publix Grocery less than 3 miles-- Wal-Mart Supercenter just 4 miles away.

* 3 pools, 2 tennis courts, shuffle board courts, 2 hot tubs, corn hole courts, 5 restaurants, shopping, spa, grills, drug store all on the Gulf Place property.

* Keyless entry to our unit

* FREE laundry

* Luggage carts to help arrival and departure

* FREE parking. 10-second walk to our patio !

* Public beach access just one-tenth of a mile (includes restroom/changing facilities, ramp, life guard, beach wheel chairs), and two other public beaches within a mile

* one of our owners- Carrie- loves consignment shopping and the Beaches of South Walton is a Mecca for great deals

* Several state parks within the area

* Mountain biking in Point Washington State Forest

* Bike rentals, beach chair, and water sports rentals within Gulf Place Town Center

* Royal Red Shrimp - get them at Publix (they will boil them for you) or at Shrimpers Seafood Market. If you've never tried Royal Reds, they are a MUST !

* Santa Rosa Beach was ranked among the 10 BEST BEACHES in the WORLD by Yahoo Travel.

* We strive to make our visitors' stay hassle free. We will answer any questions that you may have and send you recommendations to take some of the 'guess work' out of your vacation

* We love to go Deep Sea Fishing on the party boats at Destin Harbor. We highly

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great trip and wedding. Accommodations excellent. However my wife and I decided that we needed to tell you something.

We selected you as the best owner/host we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. And that's the truth. Thanks.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a quick weekend getaway to attend a local wedding. The place was perfect. It was in a great location, and the owners offered us a personalized recommendation list and area information based on our interests. The Cabana was very clean and stocked adequately. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Erin. We would love to host you all again, next time for a longer stay. We try and have everything in stock that folks would need. We also ask for feedback just in case we did miss something. A lot of folks love to go in warmer weather, but winter is probably my favorite time to go now that Fall Break is such a big deal on Hwy 30a. We let folks know about the area with recommendations and such to keep the guesswork at a minimum. Not only do we make our guests aware of the great places, we steer them away from restaurants that are just touristy traps with fried frozen seafood. Again, we hope you guys enjoyed your stay and had a wonderful time at the wedding. Hope to talk to you soon (-; . /Chris & Carrie Groce / Gulf Place Cabanas 110 / (615)-479-1349

Panhandle Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming down to the 30A area for more than 30 years, but usually it's during the summer months and with family & friends. This was our first "retirement trip" down here during the off season and the decision to stay in Gulf Place turned out to be a great choice--easy beach access and close to great restaurants, shopping & groceries. The owners have been more than accommodating and helpful and they have added lots of little personal touches throughout the condo to make your stay feel like home--a night light & shower caddy in the bath, extra outlets for charging electronics, & beach umbrellas/chairs/tables to use if you don't want to bring or rent them. If you're headed this way for either a quick trip or extended period, please consider staying here. We certainly hope to return when we have the opportunity.

Owner's Response: We were so excited to get this review, from folks who have been coming to the area for over 30 years, when South Walton and Highway 30A were just a blip on the map. We bet you guys have seen major changes over the years. We try and add everything to the condo that a guest would need, and we frequently go back to former guests to see if there is anything that we might have missed. We have said this before, but purchasing our condo directly on Highway 30A and in the Gulf Place Community is one of the best decisions we have ever made. It is our home away from home, the only place we spend extended time with our own family. We hope the area stays "perfect' for years to come. We really enjoyed hosting Dan and Libby. They were the "ultimate" guests, and seemingly felt like someone we had known for a long time (like long-lost friends). Hopefully they will visit us again !!

Great location. Affordable getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here July 5-9, 2016. This was our second rental at Gulf Place Cabanas but first in this unit. The owner made the rental process very easy. She responded almost immediately to our reservation request and any questions we had before and during our stay. She let us know upon check-in that there were a couple of minor maintenance issues caused by the previous renters, which were fixed early the 2nd day of our stay. She was in touch during our stay making sure that we were having a good time and asking if we needed anything. The unit had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked. Beach chairs and umbrellas, boogie boards and sand toys were available. We are a family of four (2 teens) and it was nice to have the half bath for our daughters to use to get ready each day.

The best thing about this unit is its location, both at Gulf Place and on the first floor. Being on the first floor gives you easy access to your vehicle for unloading/loading. It also makes it easy to drop off your beach gear on the patio when you return from the beach, which is a 3 minute walk across the street. The pool was a convenient 30 second walk from the unit but was never noisy. The beach here is not crowded because Gulf Place is a small complex and the only other properties around are houses. The beach and water were clean. We enjoyed renting a SUP from the YOLO shop at Gulf Place. We walked over from the unit and carried the board to the beach. There is a good coffee shop in the Gulf Place complex too. We cooked a lot during our stay. Publix grocery store/liquor store is an easy 10 minute drive away from the unit.

The only reason I don't give 5 stars (wish I had the option of 4.5 stars) is that I don't think the housekeepers did a thorough cleaning/unit check prior to our arrival. I had to rewash several pots and pans that were put away dirty (not sure that housekeeping checks that as it it the renter's responsibility to wash and put away dishes upon departure), one of the dining room chairs was broken, and the sheets on one of the bunk beds had black marker streaks on them. I would suggest that shag rugs be replaced with something more beach friendly. The owner did respond promptly to our request for new sheets and had the chair fixed right away.

Overall, we had a fun, relaxing family vacation at the beach. The owner was very reliable, the unit had everything we needed, and we would definitely rent it again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your well thought-out review of our "home away from home". We are, in fact, headed down to the condo in less than 24 hours (-; We love the location of the condo, as well. The first floor makes it very easy to load and unload luggage and groceries, etc. We can also be at the beach in a jiffy, without having to wait for elevators or climb down stairs. You made a great point about dropping off beach gear. Along with the sand toys that we provide, it is quite convenient to let things dry out on our large covered back patio area. The next day, everything there is ready to take to the beach once more. Isolated maintenance issues do come up from time to time, but we do our best to ensure that any issues are addressed ASAP. We do ask that guests let us know immediately (like you all did). We want our guest to have the best vacation experience possible. We are certainly glad that you all had an enjoyable vacation and we cannot wait to host you once again ! P.S. We really appreciated your scuba and YOLO paddleboard recommendations.

Excellent condo in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well taken care of and in the best location. Just steps away from the beach, pool, and fabulous restaurants! Chris was so helpful in recommending restaurants and things to do as well as letting us know what local events were taking place while we were there. The beach area is not too crowded and the water was beautiful while we were there. We have found a spot that we will go back to again and again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the nice Review ! I agree that our condo is a perfect spot for families with children, romantic getaways, and those wanting to get away from the "hustle and bustle" of everyday life. Gulf Place and South Walton are NOT "Go-Cart" or "Putt-Putt" heaven. Vacationers will have to drive about 30 minutes to Destin or Panama City Beach for that. Our area is not the best place for College Spring Breakers and heavy drinking. We think of the Highway 30a area as "Mayberry at the Beach". The film "The Truman Show" starring Jim Carrey was filmed in Seaside, so that gives a pretty good description of what our area is all about (if you've seen the movie). Many local events are happening in the Santa Rosa Beach vicinity every week. Just ask and I'll fill you in. We LOVE the restaurants at Gulf Place. The Perfect Pig is a gem of a restaurant at Gulf Place, along with La Playa (Caribbean fare), The Preacher's Kitchen, Pizza by the Sea, and Sunrise Coffee Company. Has anyone tried a Cronut? I'll send you to a place that has them-- and you can thank me later (-; Thanks again for the review. We have hosted several folks from the Franklin (TN) and Williamson County area. I think they are taking over down in Santa Rosa Beach (-;

Good family fun!

Condo was just as described. No surprises. Clean, quiet and close to the beach. The beach was relaxing. Santa Rosa beach is definitely for you if you are bringing your family. Chris was a big help answering questions and sending us info and suggestions about Santa Rosa beach. We will definitely be back

Owner's Response: Thank You very much, Adam. I think Santa Rosa Beach and Highway 30a areas are a hidden gems. We are so glad that your family liked the condo and enjoyed your vacation. We want people to have a very good, relaxing time while they are at the condo. We know that many folks may only get one week (or even a few days) of the year to spend time with their families on vacation. I can tell you right now where we take ALL of our vacations-- Christmas Break, Fall Break, Spring Break, and one week out of the summer -- Santa Rosa Beach at Gulf Place Cabanas 110 (-; I'm glad that I could be of assistance, and I encourage everyone to ask me anything, any time. I love answering questions about the condo and the area. I want to make sure it is the RIGHT FIT FOR YOU. I want families to relish their valuable time off from their busy lives. My wife and I agree that purchasing the condo at Gulf Place was one of the best decisions we have ever made.

Other than the beach, the Crown Jewel of Santa Rosa Beach, in our opinion, is the 18-mile Scenic 30-A Bike Trail (The Timpoochee Trail). You can get to the trail within 30 seconds from our first-floor Condo. Bring your own bicycles or rent them from Big Daddy's. They'll bring the bikes to you.

By the way, Santa Rosa Beach was ranked among the 10 Best Beach Destinations in the World.

For shopping, there are upscale shops close by in Gulf Place Town Center, and if you are into art, there is plenty at Gulf Place and a plethora along the famous Highway 30-A. For overall shopping, there are literally hundreds of stores from Destin to the end of 30-A.

Gulf Place Town Center is located in the same complex and has some nice shopping, spas, and restaurants. It even has a pharmacy.

Our property has 3 pools (coded), several grills, a nature trail, FREE laundry, plenty of green-space, tennis courts, hot tubs, shuffle board, and outdoor concrete picnic tables within the walking paths area.

Santa Rosa Beach is next to Miramar Beach & Sandestin and just down from Seaside and Watercolor. Santa Rosa Beach has a plethora of dining, shopping, and activities unto its own.
