About the property

4BD/3BA + roomy loft. Sleeps 10+. Short walk to beach & pool. Family Friendly

Calling all mermaids and seafarers….shoppers and land lovers! Find your perfect beach retreat at Beyond the Sea in the adorable Old Florida Village community in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. Located a short walk to the beach, a stone’s throw from the pool, and a half a block away from bicycle paths that connect all of the charming beach communities along 30-A. Come for a visit and create wonderful vacation memories.


Beyond the Sea is a quintessential beach house. From the moment you arrive, you will be greeted with style and comfort. Open the doors and breathe in the ocean vibe…from your first step in the door, the light airy decor and special touches make this truly a great home away from home.

There is plenty of space in our 4 bedroom 3 bath home for your family to spread out and relax. The main level has an open floor plan with a comfy living area, well stocked kitchen, and a casual dining table. The main level also has a bright bedroom with an iron queen size bed and a bathroom with a semi-circular shower directly across.

Follow the pine staircase to the second floor and you will find three additional bedrooms: The master bedroom includes a queen bed with luxury bedding, an en-suite bathroom with double shower heads, and private access to the second level deck where you can enjoy your morning coffee before heading off to the beach. One guest bedroom greets you with warm cheerful colors and a comfy queen bed. The other guest bedroom on this floor is coastal-calm and is furnished with two twin beds. There is a shared bathroom for these rooms.

On the third level you will discover the tower room which is perfect for kids to play or teens to relax. Decorated in bright colors, this room will put a smile on your face and will keep your children entertained when returning from a long day in the sunshine. It has a bunk bed with a trundle, a tv, a PS3 and plenty of toys and games to keep kids of all ages happy.

Old Florida Village is a charming neighborhood with winding streets lined with 'seaside-cottage-style' homes, lush landscaping and a family atmosphere. Beyond the Sea is one of closest homes to the beach (less than 500 yards) and is three homes away from one of two neighborhood pools. Our home has a convenient outdoor shower to rinse away the sand from an enjoyable day of playing in the crystal clear water and basking on the white sand beach. Hang your beach towels and store sandy shoes on the inviting side porch.

So what’s there to do around here besides the beach and pool? Everything!! The shopper in you will appreciate the huge outlet mall as well as the upscale boutiques, quaint gift shops, big souvenir emporiums and art galleries galore. Kids going stir crazy? Mini-golf, movie theaters, water parks, and pirate cruises just to name a few are all less than 20 minutes away.

One of our favorite things to do is take advantage of the miles of wide scenic trails along 30-A. It’s a great place to walk, run or go cycling as a family. We love that with our family of six, even our smallest one can enjoy a safe scenic ride. Stop at one of the locally owned coffee or ice cream shops and stroll through the charming towns you will pass along the way. Santa Rosa Beach is home to two state parks, coastal dune lakes and protected dunes. It’s the perfect place for fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, or bird watching. For the golfers, beautiful Santa Rosa Golf Club is just two miles away along with many other award winning courses nearby.

After a fun filled day, grab dinner at one of the many fabulous restaurants within walking distance or just a short drive down the scenic coastal highway. Tired of being on the go while on vacation? Stay in and relax, grill out for dinner, and enjoy a family movie night from our DVD library or play one of the many games available for your enjoyment.

We’ve thought of everything to make your getaway at Beyond the Sea comfortable and relaxing so pack light! You’ll especially enjoy the uncommon extras in our home including:

About Kristi Pumillo

We're Kristi and Steve - our favorite thing is waking up to good coffee, upbeat music and the laughter of our 4 kids. We cherish our vacation time and we love to make memories our kids will talk about for years. They may not remember every soccer game we sat on the sidelines cheering for them, but they will remember making a giant sand castle with mom or playing in the waves with dad. So, when life gets a bit hectic (and it certainly does with 4 kids!), we take every opportunity to pack up the van and head out from our home in Georgia to the beautiful Emerald Coast.

Kristi Pumillo purchased this house in 2015

Why Kristi Pumillo chose South Walton

Santa Rosa Beach has been one of our favorite areas to visit as a family. The white soft sand and clear blue water won us over. And…oh that water is so clear! Let’s admit, it’s not just the kids who feel more comfortable playing in an ocean where you can see your feet.

We had kicked around the idea of getting a house at the beach for a while. On a recent trip to the area, we were enjoying a family bike ride along the scenic path on 30-A. We were stopping in shops and neighborhoods along the way. One of the neighborhoods we wandered in to was Old Florida Village. The first thing we noticed were the winding streets and pretty cottage style homes. What really impressed us was the family friendly atmosphere - children playing outside, families riding bikes and strolling to and from the beach. We noticed one of the closest homes to the beach was for sale. It was perfect! It was exactly how we always pictured a beach house. We decided then and there that we would love to spend many vacations at Beyond The Sea.

What makes this house unique

Our goal is to make your entire experience delightful and worry free from start to finish. We understand traveling with family can be a wild adventure and we want your stay at Beyond The Sea to be carefree. We’ve thought of every convenience to make your stay enjoyable- from a pack and play for the small ones, games and movies to entertain the older ones, and beach supplies for the entire family. No need to pack the whole house, we’ve got you covered!

From the moment you contact us until the moment you pack up to head home, your only care will be to have fun with your loved ones…leave the details to us. Our home is our favorite getaway spot and we know it will be yours too!

Cozy, cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at Beyond the Sea! It rained the majority of our trip, but the big kitchen, fuzzy blankets, and living room made for a relaxing day spent indoors. The home was decorated beautifully, the owners were kind, and the kitchen was fully stocked so cooking was easy. It also comfortably slept the 11 adults on our trip. Overall, Santa Rosa beach was very laid back and not too far from good restaurants, shops, and a grocery store!! I would definitely recommend!

Another GREAT stay !!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home.... My third stay, and not one single complaint ! Kristi and Steve continue to keep improving all the details, and I couldn't be more appreciative. I enjoyed the beaches, the community pool, and the beautiful scenery all along the 30A communities during my stay. Everything inside the home was clean and orderly, all the cookware and utensils I needed were there and more... Furnishing and beddings always clean and comfortable. It was just another very enjoyable stay and I hope to return again sooner than later. I noticed a previous renter had issue with a bike, which turned out to be a simple deflated tire.... there was an air pump handy beside it, so I took two minutes to inflate it and all was good, no issues there at all. I don't think I could find an issue even I tried, so I look forward to my next trip !! Thank you :-)

Perfection by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Beyond the Sea so much we've all ready booked for next year. Kristi and Steve are the best. The house is decorated so cute, you get that beachy, vacation feeling the moment you step on the front porch. We met many new friends that we're excited to see again next year. You won't want for a thing. Kristi and Steve have thought of everything. For people with children, there's plenty of games and room for them, (the tower), or exercise room (hehe). The kitchen is well stocked. All you need is groceries. If you don't want to cook, there's plenty of excellent restaurants. The area is called the Emerald Coast for a reason. The beautiful blues and greens of the water and white sands of the beaches can't be beat. Some of us are happy with a chair and book on the beach, others try to fish:) The bedroom on the main floor is perfect for my 93 year old Grandmother, no stairs for her. The house is really bigger than the two of us need, but who's complaining? We'll be back!!!

Sweet house but needs some attention

  • 2 of 5

Located in a very quiet neighborhood in the Destin area and only about a five minute walk to the beach. I was excited that I was able to reserve the home on a short notice. We did arrive one hour earlier than the check-in time and the owner did let us in the home since the housekeeper had already cleaned. While I was grateful for that, I think the housekeeper needed that hour to clean up better. The home was not clean enough to allow my family to unpack or to use the bathrooms. I made a run up to Walmart to purchase a fragrant candle and bleach wipes and cleaned the kitchen and all the bathrooms. In the master bath, there was the previous renters make-up on the counter and the shower was not cleaned either. (I won't tell you how I could see that!) While I don't expect the houses I rent to be as clean as my own home, the basics still need to be sparkling. My family and I left the house cleaner than when we arrived.

My mom did end up showing up with her four pound service dog who is a lap dog and is carried everywhere. When I let the owner know, and sent a her a picture of how little the dog is, she stated the dog was not allowed in the home and that she needed prior notice because a "heavier cleaning would be necessary" due to allergies. I thought that was funny especially because of the mold spores on the furniture and the amount of dust and hair we swept up even before we unloaded our luggage. Just lift the sofa in the living room and you'll see it probably has not been swept since last season! My mom did end up getting a hotel room in Destin that was much cleaner than the room she would of stayed in so, it was not a problem!

Also, the house boasted about bikes and toys and that should not be sold as part of the house at all. One of the bikes had a flat and while the owner offered reimbursement if I took the bike to the bike shop for repairs, I didn't go on vacation to take care of that.

I can only imagine how hard it is to manage a house when you do not live nearby but you still need to ensure it's cleaniness. Having a very nosy neighbor check out your tenants is not enough! My suggestion is to schedule a heavy cleaning and trim the outside foliage to let some of that Destin sun into the home!

Owner's Response: Amanda, I am sorry you didn’t completely enjoy your stay! We try in every way to make sure our guests have a wonderful experience. I really wish you would have let me know about the housekeeping issues. We would have had the housekeeper come back in right away. Unfortunately we couldn’t accommodate your mother’s chihuahua. As we discussed prior to you booking, we typically do not allow pets to stay in our home unless there is ample time between guests to have our home deep cleaned, including the carpets. This is to ensure any future guests with pet allergies are comfortable. I am sorry our offer to cover the cost of repairing the flat tire at the corner bike shop or covering the cost of a rental bike during your stay didn't meet your needs. Thank you for your feedback and we hope you enjoy your next stay to the Santa Rosa Beach area.
