Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Seacrest - 30A Ocean/Beach Front Favorite

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

Outstanding view and quick DIRECT access to the sugar white sands of Seacrest Beachg and the emerald waters of the ocean! Our condo at Mistral does not disappoint! Set high on a dune, our 2 BR / 2 Ba condo 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.

Well maintained complex has double board walks that lead to the beach. We are new at listing this condo and have carefully renovated it with new paint, new flooring, 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 a rocking chair and bench with a comfy pad for more outdoor seating. Our condo is extremely well located between the best features of 30A. Our condo sleeps 8 with bunk beds in the hallway and 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. 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 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 patio table seats three 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 stacked washer/dryer is off to the side.

The second floor is a loft area accessed by a spiral staircase. Here you’ll find the largest bedroom. 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 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 bathroom has a very large Jacuzzi tub and a marble countertop with a single vanity.

Be sure to enjoy grilling outside and biking along the Timpoochee Trail, a paved pedestrian and bike path running the length of Scenic Highway 30A right outside the complex.

About Julie Starling

This is our second beach front condo. We have successfully rented our Dauphin Island 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 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.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Mistral condo. We loved being right on the beach which made it easy to go back and forth from the condo. There were lots of great restaurants around as well. Julie was very good at answering all my questions promptly. We would definitely stay here again!

Family Trip

  • 3 of 5

Even though the location was perfect, the inside of the condo was not what I was expecting. The furniture was old/outdated and had many stains. Our bedspread had a weird blue stain on it the day we arrived.

Owner's Response: Morgan, I am so glad you were able to experience the joy of the beach after all of our correspondence and effort. I know you had my phone number so am unsure why you did not contact me about the "wierd stain" immediately upon arrival. There is another comforter in the closet that could have taken the place of that one. As far as the furniture, I have never received a comment as negative as yours since the furniture is as pictured on the VRBO site. You should have seen the furniture in the condo before we purchased! a denim sofa and mattresses that were a million years old! A handmade kitchen table with the tiniest chairs ever seen! We certainly have enjoyed renovating this condo since its purchase last year and look forward to hosting all of our past and future happy 30A beach loving guests. Julie

Fantastic condo, right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Mistral condo! This property is directly on the beach with private access just down the stairs. This stretch of beach was very quiet, with only a few other families nearby. However, it was easy to drive to neighboring Rosemary Beach and Seaside for shopping and dining. The kitchen is nicely updated, with good appliances. If you have more than two people or plan to use a cooler at the beach, you may need to buy ice as the ice maker was a little slow. For your time on the beach, there are several beach equipment companies that will set up umbrellas and beach chairs for you, which was well worth it to us. Also, the owner is friendly and made sure we had an excellent stay! I take a trip to stay in the area along 30A every year, and this is the best location I've found yet. We will definitely be back!

I appreciate you taking the time to comment on nearby Rosemary Beach and Seaside (so fun) and the beach chair companies. I look forward to your next 30A visit, return guests get a discount! Julie

Seacrest Condo on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at this condo during the week of June 11-18th. We had a wonderful time. We have stayed in Seacrest on 3 prior visits, but have always stayed in the development of homes next to Rosemary Beach, across 30A from the beach. This year, we wanted to trying being directly on the beach. The condo was perfect for us and my two children 8 and 11. We did not need the two bunks in the hall, but they would be great for a 3rd/4th child. If your family likes to bike, Ally's beach (the Doughnut truck, etc.) is ~1 mile towards Rosemary and The Hub (outdoor restaurant complex) is ~1 mile in the other direction (towards Seaside). The unit is on the 3rd floor, but that was not an issue for us. One thing I have not seen pointed out in prior posts is that this particular portion of beach has a sandbar that sets a very reachable ~20-30 yards off the beach, which really acts to extend the shallowness of the beach. The kids can venture pretty far out and the water was only slightly above their waists. The owners were very easy to deal with and were very responsive. There was an a miscommunication with the cleaning company (the condo was not clean when we arrived) and the owners could not have responded any better. The cleaning staff was on site within 30 minutes and the owners picked up my family's dinner that night. Mistakes happen; I just appreciate how they handled it! The condo had everything we needed.

Owner's Response: Jason, Thank you for writing such a nice review! It is a great location between the wonderful things to do in Rosemary and Seaside, glad you and your kids biked that wonderful wide trail. The bike trail is one of my favorite things about 30A and someday I am going to bike all the way down to Santa Rosa on it! (Or, maybe I will just live vicariously through my guests...) Okay, truthfully, the donut truck at Rosemary is my favorite thing.... We look forward to your next visit! return guests get a discount! Julie
