About the property

What A View! This Is What Makes A Beach Vacation Memorable! Sleeps 8

Outstanding direct views and quick DIRECT access to the sugar white sands of Seacrest Beach and the emerald waters of the ocean! Our condo at the Mistral complex does not disappoint! Set high on a dune, our 2 BR / 2 Ba condo with hallway bunkbeds commands an incredible view. The ocean waves are literally right outside the door, the sound of the waves can be heard all the way through the condo to the bedroom by the front door.

Our condo is extremely well located between the best features of 30A. Well maintained Mistral beach front complex has a private double boardwalk that leads directly to the beach. We have carefully and professionally renovated our condo with new paint, new flooring, new spa like bathroom, new furniture, new mattresses, new bedding, new decor, new appliances--all waiting for YOU!

The view from the balcony deck is spectacular. You will love drinking your favorite beverage with the sounds and colors of the ocean and sky. The patio table seats four with sturdy chairs and there is also two wide and comfortable cushioned wicker chairs with a side table. Our condo sleeps 8 with bunk beds in the hallway, a king size sleeper sofa, a king size bed and a queen size bed in separately located bedrooms. It is beautifully decorated as you can see in the pictures.

The kitchen has granite countertops, a double basin stainless steel sink, stainless steel appliances, an electric stove and oven, with a microwave overhead. It also has a dishwasher, a refrigerator with ice maker, toaster, coffee maker and blender and large appliance grill. The cabinets are maple, and the counter has seating for three. The dining area has a round table that seats four and is perfect for playing cards or doing a puzzle. (Puzzles included!)

The living room overlooks the spectacular view of the Gulf. A king size sleeper sofa and overstuffed chairs invite you to put your feet up and relax. We have a 45-inch flat screen with DVD player and wifi. The outside balcony table seats four and offers stunning views of the Gulf.

The first bedroom has a queen bed, ceiling fan, an upright dresser, a chair, a large mirrored closet, and a 22-inch TV with a DVD/VHF player. The bathroom is just outside the door and has a tub/shower combo, and a marble countertop with a single vanity. A new large capacity stacked washer/dryer is off to the side.

The second floor is the master suite in the private loft area accessed by a spiral staircase. It has a king bed with two night stands and two lamps, a ceiling fan, a 24-inch TV with a DVD player, a large dresser, a bench and a comfy uphlostered chair with a side table and lamp to enjoy reading or watching television. The walk in closet has plenty of room with multiple shelves and hanging rods and it contains extra blankets and an ironing board and iron. The spa like bathroom has been renovated in December 2016 and has new wood like tile flooring, an extra large walk in shower with a wide bench and a niche that extends across the entire shower wall to put your shampoo products on. The updated vanity features a marble top and the mirror opens for storage of your cosmetics and tooth brush. We have tried to make it as comfortable as your own home!

Be sure to enjoy grilling outside, there is a charcoal grill for the complex and biking along the Timpoochee Trail, a paved pedestrian and bike path running the length of Scenic Highway 30A right outside the complex. There is a donut shop in Alys Beach that is walking and biking distance away! The entire 30A is known for its lengthy biking path, enjoy!

About Julie Starling

This is our second beach front condo. We have successfully rented our Dauphin Island, AL beachfront condo to many happy guests since 2008. Check out the guest reviews at vrbo.com/159790.

Julie Starling purchased this condo in 2015

Why Julie Starling chose South Walton

We have ALWAYS loved the Rosemary Beach/Alys Beach area. It has such a mystique about it, there is nothing in the world like the beaches of 30A and this paticular location by Rosemary and Alys and Seaside is absolutely the BEST! Direct Ocean Front and easy bike access to anywhere makes this location the best on 30A.

What makes this condo unique

the ocean view, the beach view, the ocean view, the beach view, the ocean view, the beach view, the sounds of the crashing waves!

AND...minutes away from Alys Beach (where the donut truck is...) and the beautiful communities of Rosemary Beach and Seaside Beach. :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very good time at your condo. We did not reply earlier because we decided not to access our e-mail or other social media sites while we were on vacation - just to have a total getaway from our normal everyday life.

Your condo was very pleasant with a fabulous view. We enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony each morning watching the waves come in. The weather was fabulous during our entire stay. The location of your condo is excellent, away from the hustle and bustle of some of the adjacent communities like Seaside. The beach was beautiful - never overly busy.

Julie, we thank you for letting us enjoy your condo!

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here and instantly fell in love with the place. The view and location was perfect. It was so great for us because we have two young kids and hauling of their stuff to the beach was no problem because of the easy excess. Julie was amazing, she answered all of my questions timely and was extremely accommodating. We would definitely come back again.

Perfect arrangements. Julie the owner went out of her way for us to make a special vacation for us.

  • 5 of 5

The rental was clean. The location was perfect. We'll be back for sure. Thank you Julie for helping me make our only annual vacation together very special. The beach is wide and clean. We never saw a cigarettt butt. The community takes pride where they live. The experience overall was a blessing and a vacation to remember. I would highly recommend Julie's place for a beachside vacation rental.

Needed a Break!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo! In the middle of all the fun. Room to spread out with two stories and our 8 year old son loved the hallway bunk beds. We were there for three nights and did the beach everyday, ate at great new and old restaurants that were just around the corner, grocery stores were close so we bought food for the condo, drank coffee on the patio in the morning with waves splashing, played board games left in the condo and watched the US Open. Close to boat and jet ski rental and Putt Putt. Owner made the rental process easy...keyless door locks.....no keys to forget!!! That was a huge plus! Parking was always open and close. Super clean and every amenity you would need....will never stay in a hotel again!

Mistral 19

  • 5 of 5

We were in Mistral 19 the second week of June, 2017. My wife and I, our two daughters, and our son in law had a great time. The condo is clean, well appointed, and has a great view of the beach from the top floor. The beds are very comfortable, the AC works great, and the kitchen has everything you need. The Mistral is located in a very convenient spot on 30A. It's an easy bike ride to Rosemary Beach to the east or The Hub to the west. In short, Mistral 19 is in a perfect spot.

I should note that you need to be ready to climb some stairs. While the beach is wide, white, and beautiful, it sits at the bottom of a natural sea wall that can only be accessed by stairs. This is the case for most of Seacrest Beach though. With the Mistral 19 on the third floor with no elevators, you will get a work out by week's end. But make no mistake, it will be worth it. And our oldest daughter being 6 months pregnant, had no trouble.

We had a five star week and will definitely look to return next year.
