About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Gorgeous beach home has terrazzo floors with Oriental rugs and tasteful furniture that fill the living and sleeping areas. Bedrooms feature queen-size beds including pull-out, queen-size sofa in living room.

The large, glassed-in solarium (porch) of Villa Sounion serves as the third bedroom and overlooks your private beach with fabulous views of the emerald water, dolphins, and exquisite gulf sunsets. Set on a bluff, wood decking and steps take you down to the gulf and crystal white sands. Fishing from the shores will ensure your dinner, and crabbing at dusk is an added bonus.

We had the most wonderful vacation at Casa De Sounion. It is in the perfect location. It is close to all of the great amenities, but not in the center of all the chaos. This beachfront house could not have a better view. The beach is not crowded at all and extremely relaxing. The house itself is wonderful with plenty of room, and completely furnished. This charming house had the best view, and was everything we hoped for and more. The peace and quiet was wonderful. This was by far the best vacation we have been on and cannot wait to return! The owner is extremely friendly, easy to work with, and we cannot wait to return to their beautiful beach home.

"What an Amazing vacation! My family spent a week in paradise.

This was our first trip ever to Florida and we were not disappointed.

I kept saying : I cant believe I am actually here!: Thank You so much

for allowing us the use of your beautiful home. It was everything you said and more! We had wonderful weather & enjoyed every second of our stay. We really appreciated the fresh flowers and all the little extras you provide, such as lines, towels and the cushions for the lay down chairs. My family had an incredible time :o)

The house was clean and the beach was breath taking.

We hope to one day find our way back. WE cant say enough about this wonderful trip

Thanks so much!!

Dave, Cari & Kids

My wife and I enjoyed our 40th anniversary at Casa De Sounion last March. We were delighted to have found Stephanie's little beach house that has perfectly preserved the simple pleasures of days gone by! The location was absolutely stunning. Perched high above the beach, which is only steps away, we had an unobstructed view 24 hours a day. The home is a classic Florida Beach Cottage. Very clean and fully appointed. The little yard was perfect for our small dog. It is very convenient to all of the great places along 30A. Stephanie is wonderful to work with. You will not be disappointed with this hidden gem of a home. Thanks Stephanie!

We spent Christmas 2016 here at Casa De Sounion. You could not find a more perfect location. The large patio overlooks the gulf and we spent mornings over coffee enjoying the view and spent literally every evening enjoying spectacular sunsets to end the day. Miles and miles of the most beautiful and mostly empty beaches. You can walk for miles. Close to everything, but tucked back into it's own private lot it was so close to the walking and bike path. Just a short bike ride to our favorite coffee shop, Fonville at Alys Beach and tons of restaurants and shops in Seacrest and Rosemary Beach. Stephanie, the owner was so responsive if we had any questions and we felt very much at home. I will never get tired of that view!!! Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

What a great experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two children (ages 8 and 9) and cocker spaniel mix went to this beach house for my 50th birthday. The weather could not have been better as we had some unexpected high 80 degree days without a cloud in the sky. Being right on the beach made everything so nice. The house is just as described and worked out nice for us. Being able to ride our bikes along 30A was a plus, although we only did it once since we basically lived on the beach while we were there!

Stephanie is a wonderful host and can provide great insight on the area. Thank you for a great stay! We are already trying to pick dates for our next stay!!
