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

Hi Julie! We love it! The only sad part is that we have to leave. The condo is exactly what we hoped. Thank you! Becca

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.

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing week at this condo! The condo itself was clean and updated. The master bath shower was huge and it was nice to be in the loft - a separate space away from the kids. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the master bed was soft and I did not get a good nights sleep in it. I chose this destination because I was hoping we would be far enough away from the big towns that the beaches would be less crowded and town might be slower. It did not disappoint! As busy as spring break is, we never had to worry about fighting for a place on the beach. We loved renting bikes and biking into Rosemary Beach and Aly's Beach for exercise during the day and dinner each evening. This is a great area for families - and this particular condo would be quiet enough for a couples get away. Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our stay! Julie, the owner was very warm and welcoming and answered our questions promptly. Plenty of seating, dishes, towels, and linens. Only minor feedback would be to upgrade or sharpen kitchen knifes and add a pizza cutter to the kitchen supplies. Thanks for a great vacation.

Beautiful condo that actually sits right on the beach. We loved the week we spent there!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we were looking for to enjoy this year's Spring Break with our family. The condo sits right on one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen. The morning we left we saw dolphins from our balcony. We loved being able to walk down the stairs and boardwalk right onto the beach. When we got hungry or tired, we just ran back up to the condo. I could even watch the rest of the family playing on the beach from the condo balcony! The beach wasn't crowded at all. That might have been because of the cooler weather the week we went, but we appreciated it nonetheless. The condo itself is very nice and accommodated eight of us nicely. The upstairs master bath is newly renovated and gorgeous. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc., and there were plenty of extra sheets, pillows, and towels. The owner was wonderful to work with and was available if we needed anything, but we didn't. Check-in was easy and we found everything in the condo we needed. We mostly played on the beach and enjoyed our time there and in the condo, but there are other fun things to do in the area. Bike rentals are available, and bike paths run through the entire area. One day we drove to Panama City and rented a pontoon boat which we took out to Shell Island, a small undeveloped peninsula. We were told where we might find dolphins, and we found them. It was spectacular to watch a pod of dolphins from only 10-20 feet away. Our entire family loved both the property and our entire experience there. We're already talking about when we can go back! Thank you for an amazing week filled with fun family memories.

Great getaway for anniversary

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this rental for 4 nights for an anniversary trip. Our favorite part was the proximity to the beach. The pictures are accurate- the beach is literally right outside the balcony. We would travel to Seaside or Rosemary for one meal a day and eat our other meals in the nice condo kitchen. We love 30a and are excited to bring our children with us sometime. We have two children- ages 2 & 4- so the spiral staircase would make me nervous with them and I wouldn't like how far away the master loft bedroom was away from the front bedroom right next to the front door where our children would sleep, so we would wait until they were older before we brought them here. However, the condo was very nice, clean, accurately depicted in its description and pictures, and we are very pleased with our stay.
