Make your beach vacation a TRIP! Stay at the Hippest Vacation House on 30-A! The house is a special beach home, created to be hip and different from your typical Beach rental, appointed with comfortable classic modern furnishings (Herman Miller, Knoll, Eames, etc.). The home is designed to support every whim from hammock napping to gourmet cooking.

The house is located inside a newly designed, intimate beach community, just down from infamous Goatfeathers and Balsamati's Restaurants. The house's property is situated directly on one of the two communities pools, just a short stroll (500 yards) from the beach. We also have a large one bedroom condo (sleeps 6) directly on the beach just down the road in Blue Mountain Beach. you can combine the condo with your rental and have an outpost for grandparents or that childless relative.

The master bedroom suite includes; tub, separate shower, king-size bed, modern classic chaise lounge, french doors that open to a wrap-around private balcony that peeks through the trees at the community pool. One guest room with a queen bed (partial view of hidden lake), the other with bunkbeds, the fourth bedroom/study on the first floor equipped with an expensive birch wood slated futon which includes a featherbed coverlet (very comfortable).

All bedrooms are full of windows and natural light. Wonderfully appointed kitchen with Corian counters, Kenmore Radiant Collection appliances, and all other top-o-line misc. tools (blender, toaster, etc.). The house is designed to accommodate virtually every vacation need... including an owner written/assembled list of favorite 'insider' places to eat, play, day-trip, or shop (with directions and menus and costs included).

Adjacent to the property you will be delighted to find over 20 miles of continuous/separate paved Greenway Trails (biking or walking) that weave through some of the most picturesque Beach Communities/lakes in florida (Seaside, Grayton Beach, Redfish Lake, Eastern Lake, etc.).

Old Florida Village is a short stroll to the shops at Gulf Place (free open air jazz concert every Sunday evening) and a short bike ride to the shops found at Grayton Beach, Watercolor, and Seaside (Starbucks, Publix, bike rentals, etc.). Hop in the car for a ten min. drive to the massive shops of Sandestin Resort/Baytowne Wharf and Sand Destin Factory Outlet...

If an active vacation is required; stroll to the beach for some clear water snorkeling, sandcastle building, and shell seeking or try the exceptional SINGLETRACK mountain bike/hiking trails that begin virtually from your doorstep and meander over 15 miles through Eastern Lake State Park/Point Washington State Forest... or give the famous Cory Pickos Wakeboarding and Ski School a try literally just down the road.

Within a half hour drive you'll find Tom Fazio's new golf course, or a little closer, two miles down the road, you'll find the challenging course at the Santa Rosa Beach Club/Golf Course. Do we even need to mention the World Class Deep Sea Fishing in Destin. How about some Putt Putt, or an Amusement Park, Jet Skiing, Para-Sailing, Marine Parks (two, one in Fort Walton Beach the other in Panama City, either less than a half hour drive)... The house also comes fully stocked with Beach Chairs, DVDs, Regional books, Board Games, etc...

If we have forgotten anything please let us know!

About Grace Daniell

We wanted a retreat for families to enjoy the beach that was not your typical beach rental. We have always loved vacationing in this area.... so beautiful..... and wanted to share it.

Grace Daniell purchased this house in 2005

Why Grace Daniell chose South Walton

Location! We love sleepy Santa Rosa, the developer had a great track record with previous work in the region, especially his construction quality and landscaping. Being on the pool was important and having a private porch for the master bedroom was a must.

What makes this house unique

We have unique furnishings and art that make the house very special and a fun place to stay!


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Nice House in a great community.

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a week in the house with 8 people and it worked out perfectly. It's a nice house with plenty of room. It's behind the pool and can get a little noisy at times but we didn't mind, we actually liked the convenience to the pool with the kids. It's a very family friendly neighborhood with kids riding their bikes around. It's about a 10 minute walk to the beach which isn't bad if you don't have much stuff to carry. We usually had a bunch of stuff to haul down there so we went to the beach early and drove and were usually able to get a parking spot. We had a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: What this wonderful family did not mention...none of the electronics in the house were working when they arrived. Lighting had struck the house and fried all televisions, cable, internet etc.. It is always a struggle dealing with cable/utility companies, this was one of those "we'll be there tomorrow" for three days...I wish these people were my neighbors given patience and respectful communication with me!

Really only three bedrooms

  • 3 of 5

Our family staying in this house in 2013. It is located right next to the pool and is a lovely place. There are two bedrooms suitable for adults and a bunk room for the children, but the fourth bedroom has a futon and is not comfortable. We would rent this house again if the owner would replace the futon with a real bed.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry this guest left feeling that way about my Mom's bedroom. Yep my dear ol'mom sleeps on that futon and loves the firmness. I've slept on it. Huge closet, big window, elien gray bedside table, tons of pillows, dvd, brand new tv.. the futoon itself is a birch-wood slate frame (flexes compared to metal) with a goosedown mattress liner, never make into a couch leave it in bed position with a bunch of sofa pillows behind for tv watching, popcorn eating!

I just spent July 5th-July 12th with fantastic friends. Couldn't have been better. Beautiful home. Everything we needed. Close to everything especially the beach. Less than a 10 minute walk. I will be taking my family next year!
