Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Santa Rosa Beach

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

***We ARE NOT on the beach** photo of beach is one of our Seaside Beach Pavillions where you can easily walk and relax..

This unit is perfect for A COUPLE ONLY....or One person..not for children or teens ..no exceptions ......If you have children, please take a look at VRBO Listing #58131 my Picasso Moon....

NO PETS!.....Please do not even ask..answer will always be no......

I do not charge automatically for use of pools and fitness..that is added ONLY if you wish to use.

You are in the heart of everything, do not need to drive anywhere...just park and enjoy.

Although we ARE NOT on the beach, we are just a short stroll to the water's edge!

Imagine... just walk out from your cozy and very much like a European or Paris 'flat' (which we refer to as Picasso Sun) to the rooftop and view all of Seaside and the Gulf of Mexico... put together an intimate dinner with candlelight under the stars, or dash out the door, walk to Bud and Alleys Restaurant and let them cook for you. You can also take a leisurely stroll down the pedestrian street (which is in front of the 'Picasso Sun') to unique boutiques and art galleries which are less than a few hundred yards away. The possibilities are limited only to your imagination.

** If you would like for me to provide a bottle of champagne or flowers or whatever might bring a smile to your companion's face, just let me know in advance and I'll take care of it and add it to your final bill. **


Now... you can focus on your living SPACE at my PIcasso sun, which is a two room unit designed with a trendy New York loft style architecture...some folks consider it more European style....I have even had a recent guest describe it like a flat they had in Paris!

Only one bedroom with a queen bed, very cozy . The compact living/dining/kitchen area is equipped with a small stove, refrigerator and microwave. If you are looking for an upscale Ritzz Carlton type unit....WE ARE NOT.... All linens are included with your stay. We have no balconies, however,the open rooftop can be accessed easily out your door and up the stairs We are not the typical Condo style unit and we are not the typical beachside community. Seaside has so much to offer for a vacation or weekend getaway.

It feels like a small European village with parks and shops and the gorgeous emerald green GULF OF MEXICO at your disposal. You can hear the bell ring when sunset officially falls and night begins. An outdoor theater is provided and once during the week you can see movies under the stars with outdoor concerts in the park area.

Sorry, pets and smoking are NOT allowed in our 'Picasso Sun.' I live above the Picasso sun and moon and of course, will meet you when you arrive.

About Bert

Jim and Bert live in Seaside...and they live above the Picasso Moon and Sun. Bert is a Realtor and has been since 1985, first in Tennessee and since 1998 in Florida. Since they purchased the building, Bert 'inherited' the art/toy/gallery on the first level, and has been running it successfully for 7 years. They love it in Seaside and are happy and excited to share their special place with others.

Bert purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Bert chose South Walton

Owning this special place in Seaside makes it possible for us to live our dream and also share this fabulous spot on the Gulf of Mexico with others. WE try to keep the rates reasonable enough to balance between paying for our dream and allowing others to enjoy and Seaside is a special place that once you arrive, you will want to come back time and time again.

What makes this apartment unique

This darling little loft type apartment is perfect for two....and You walk out the front door to shops and resturants and right now, I am hearing the Chapel chime 11:00 . You hear the bells and the noises of this fabulous community, almost like you are living and enjoying a small European city by the sea.

Please Please Please...if you are looking for a Ritzz Carlton type of accommodations, THIS IS NOT...we are trendy, bohemian and artsy....so don't expect something we are not and then complain.

We are currently enjoying Picasso Sun for the first time. It's tiny but perfect for 2. We can't wait to come back really soon.

Owner's Response: Regi, we are so glad that your stay with us at the Picasso Sun was an enjoyable one. I know you liked the fact that you could step out of your unit and you were at the market, or restaurants, or listening to the music on the green. Hoping for a quick return, and let me know you are a returning guest for that returning guest discount. bert

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Picasso Moon. It is an amazing location...the balcony and rooftop are truly something special. It was clean and spacious. We could not have asked for anything more perfect to celebrate our 20th anniversary.

Owner's Response: Jennifer, the pleasure was ours too! I knew you would enjoy the location, because once you arrive at either the Picasso Moon or the Picasso Sun, you realize that you really do not have to get in your car again. The shops, restaurants and market are literally outside your door. Hopefully you will return soon to our little "fairytale" world . Be certain to let us know you are a returning guest to receive our returning guest discount.

Great place for two in Seaside

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed in Picasso Sun for the second time. It's a fantastic way for a couple to (affordably) stay in the heart of Seaside. Not the biggest place, but perfectly fine for a couple. Walk downstairs and you are literally in the heart of Seaside. Roof access is great for a view of the coast and the town. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Jeff, we are so excited that you chose our Picasso Sun for a second time. This is a wonderful small flat that is PERFECT for a couple. You can enjoy all that Seaside has to offer, without breaking the bank. I will reiterate that anytime our guests return to the Picasso Sun, I do offer a returning guest discount and please remind me upon your next reservation.

The location of this condo is great! My daughter and I planned our spring break trip here and ended up with a last minute friend. The 3 of us were comfortable, but I was disappointed in several aspects. 1) You are not allowed to have guests on the rooftop. We met 3 young men on the beach and they came by to say hello, but were rudely asked to leave as soon as they arrived. 2) You are not allowed to open the windows. Though they are able to open, the owner told us to close them. This is a must for me when I am at the beach! Especially if there is not a beach view. 3) It is fairly poorly stocked. There is no broom (sand is inevitable no matter how much you clean up at the door. They kitchen is not well stocked, but we didn't eat in much, so that was not too bad. And the only TV is a very small one in the bedroom, nothing in the living area. If you have a rainy day or two, or want to watch a movie at night, it is very inconvenient. Also, there is no music.....no radio or CD player, nor docking station..... 4) The privacy is at a minimum. The "owner on premises" was not a good thing. Bert was very much in our business, and not in a kind way! I would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: Two Sides to every story........Her's is extremely MISREPRESENTED. 1. When I book my small "Paris style" apartment, all guests are aware, and so was she, that it is only TWO ROOMS...the bedroom with a queen bed and TV and a combined living/dining/Parisian style efficiency kitchen, all of this is outlined in the listing on VRBO. Our apartment is not intended to be "fully stocked", it is a sweet Paris style efficiency and is so small, that having a TV in the living area & one in the bedroom would be ridiculous & overkill. This is why I am emphatic about only booking a "Couple" in my Picasso Sun. My Picasso Moon ,a two bedroom is perfect for families with teens. 2. When guests book my properties, I require them to sign a reservation policy, and initial that there are only 2 guests in sun. After signing, this woman neglected my policy. When booking she told me that it was a mother/daughter outing after visiting colleges, and I believed her. I realize now, it was actually a spring break for her daughter & daughter's friend. I would never have agreed knowing that 3. I have a wonderful rooftop that has a 360 degree view of Seaside and the Gulf which I love for guests in both units moon & sun to enjoy, but I do not allow teens not renting from me to congregate on the roof. I came home one day to a bunch of teens and these two girls were throwing things off the roof onto the pedestrian walkway. I was extremely concerned that someone was going to get hit by whatever they were throwing. 4. I have never told my guests they cannot open windows., but if the air conditioning is running I do ask guests to make certain the windows are closed. This group had the air at full blast with the window wide open(a) this is a waste of the air conditioning (b) if the window continued to have been open , the air conditioner would have frozen up because of the high humidity pouring through the open window and (C) then I would have had to call a repairman and until they came, there would be no air conditioning. I am almost certain no person in their right mind would do this at their home, but this woman told me "I am paying for this apartment, therefore I have the right to do whatever I want. " This guest began her review by saying "the location was great" and "they were comfortable"...Her criticism stems from the fact that she did not like adhering to my policies which are not unreasonable. This guest is totally off base , I am the one disappointed in her.

The view from the rooftop terrace is a Picasso!

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location! Absolutely fabulous vacation rental in the heart of seaside, florida. A few steps to fabulous shopping, dining, and emerald beaches. I could not get enough of the royal red shrimp at the Shrimp Shack. What a treat!!! The rental was clean, fully stocked, beautifully decorated, and reasonably priced. The view from the rooftop terrace is absolutely breathtaking and the sunset looked like a Picasso painting. : ) Bert, you are so sweet and we can not thank you enough! Your rental is the best kept secret in Seaside and we will be back.

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Wow... What a great place! My wife and I decided to go to Seaside for our 1 year anniversary. After looking at several locations in Seaside we went with the Picasso Sun for its location and great value! The place is perfect for that romantic getaway for 2. Beach, shops and great restaurants very close to property. We only used our car once in 4 days to drive to the Red Bar (highly recommended) and it was only 3 miles away. Bert was extremely polite, courteous and very easy to deal with. She responded very quickly to questions we asked about the property and was always there to lend a recommendation about the areas restaurants and shops. Absolutely no issues at all with property - very quiet and relaxing. My wife and I felt like we owned the place rather than actually having rented it - very private. If your looking to stay in Seaside for 2 this is your place. I highly recommend this property. Thanks Bert!! We hope to see you again very soon!!
