This program is to increase beach access parking availability along 30A, increase awareness of outdoor recreation opportunities, and increase visitation to the Park.

Great vacation, home and owner

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed a great visit to Serenity Now. The home is beautiful and accommodated us really well. The Master Suite is beautiful and spacious with a rare gas fireplace, large double door balcony deck, and the master bath and shower are spacious. The home and neighborhood are quiet and really great for walking, biking and exploring the cypress ponds which are a photographers heaven. The infinity edge pool and clubhouse are the nicest we have seen on 30A, comparable to Caliza at Alys Beach with a great unobstructed, wilderness and dunes views over Topsail State Park. We saw deer on two occasions. The owner is great to work with and makes the entire process easy. The bikes, beach chairs and umbrella are an added bonus that makes this home an even better choice. We definitely recommend this home for your next beach vacation.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. The house is well appointed and the pool is only a short walk away.

  • 5 of 5

The location was very near public access to the beach if you choose not to use the shuttle. We also liked being on the less congested end of the 30A.

Santa Rosa Beach

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is exactly as the pictures show. We had a nice relaxing vacation in Santa Rosa Beach. Our family loved the beaches within a 5 minute drive from the house. We enjoyed the pool and riding bikes around the neighborhood. We also enjoyed dinner at Stinky's right around the corner from the house. The owner, Tim was easy to work with and was responsive to any questions or concerns.
