About the property

2 BR, 2 Bath, Corner Unit Located On The Ground Floor

Sabo’s Sandbox is located in Beachside Villas and perfect for couples or families that are seeking to escape the crowds of the more populated Destin and Panama City Beach areas. Sabo’s Sandbox is a Non-Smoking, No Pets Allowed, 2 BR, 2 bath corner unit located on the ground floor of building #9 at the Beachside Villas. While this unit does not have a gulf view it does provide easy access to the boardwalk that leads right to the beach!!! You will not have to cross any busy streets as you are less than 300 steps from the front door to the beach. Adult bikes, beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels all included.

Beachside Villas is a quiet, family-oriented, beachfront complex offering two pools (one heated), lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, WiFi high speed internet access, a very nice party deck, and barbeques. Located between Deer Lake State Park and Eastern Lake, you will find one of the most peaceful stretches of beach around. Enjoy cycling/running/walking on the nearby 30A- 27 mile-long bike trail. Set out and explore the fabulous restaurants and quaint shops of Seagrove Beach and the surrounding communities, such as Seaside and Rosemary Beach. If you desire more, Sandestin outlets are just 20 miles west and Pier Park in Panama City Beach is just 15 miles east.

This unit has been remodeled with new furniture, a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washer and dryer, televisions in the living room and each bedroom. The dining table seats 4 with an additional 2 at the bar.

About Bill and Janice Sabo

We live in Summerville, Georgia and were high school sweet hearts. Now 30+ years later we are still sweet hearts and the best of friends! God blessed us with a beautiful daughter, Ciji, who is now married to a wonderful man Craig Brewer.

Bill and Janice Sabo purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bill and Janice Sabo chose Seagrove Beach

We Love 30A! Our daughter has always loved the beach so we would vacation at Seaside every year for many years. Now, years later, God blessed us with the opportunity to purchase our own condo very close to Seaside. This is such a family friendly place - laid back and relaxing! Nothing like the party crowds you might find at Panama. It truly is a piece of paradise!

What makes this condo unique

We realize that some folks do like the crowded party beaches but we love that there are NO high rise condo's and it's tucked away so that you feel the serene atmosphere of 30A and it's beaches!

A wonderful condo not far from the beach. A well though out binder full of information you may need sitting on the table. All the items you need for the beach in the patio closet. Clean and neat place to bring your family. We will be back soon!

Amazing is all we can say about our stay at Sabo's Sandbox

  • 5 of 5

As others have stated-this place has it all! Plenty of everything you may need. It is clean and beautifuly decorated and our only complaint--we had to walk the 300 feet to the beach. But we couldnt ask for a better place and the beach got closer with every trip. We were sorry we didnt get to see the alligator although it wasnt for a lack of trying! The perfect place for a relaxing vacation!!!

Very nice condo and property.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the condo! Only complaints were that it took 24 hrs to get the frig cool enough for our food and we had some spiders even after pest control sprayed. My friend even got bit by a spider in the bed. If it werent for these problems we would give 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The fridge is brand new so we will check to see if the controls may not be set correctly. We have also notified HOA re: pests. Glad to hear you like the condo.

Car: necessary

This is not for the 'party' crowd. It is tucked away and laid back for relaxation. You can travel down 30A and find many great restaurants and we are only 3 miles from Seaside. It is a family oriented atmosphere! If you are looking to relax, this is it!
