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 Seacrest Beach

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.

The condo and location couldn’t have been better! Nice large bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Everything you could need in the kitchen and 2nd bedroom and bath as well. Beds were comfortable so we slept great. It was very peaceful. The view of the ocean is spectacular! We hope to book there again soon.

Beautiful Beachfront Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo in Seacrest Beach, 30A, Florida was beautiful and the perfect size for our group of 8. Located directly on the beach, there was a cozy patio with AMAZING ocean views during the day, and beautiful sunsets at night. This condo was in pristine condition and within very close proximity to the incredible restaurants and shops at Rosemary Beach.

This was my first stay in Rosemary Beach, and it will most certainly not be my last. While Rosemary Beach in itself was amazing, this alluring condo made my stay all the more special. I will definitely be back and can't wait to stay at Rental 720256 again!

Perfect getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful condo with the most perfect view!! The decor made us feel right at home and it was very spacious. Perfect place for a group that likes to stay in & play games or for a group that likes to go out. It’s a quick drive up to Rosemary beach where we could grab brunch and also go out. The sunsets from this view are stunning!!

gorgeous views

  • 3 of 5

Property has gorgeous views, however we were unaware there were so many steps to it, it's on the third floor with no elevator. There are also 70+ steps to beach after going down the 3 1/2 floors. We had a hard time getting in, the code was changed after we left home, and even after getting it, the lock did not work properly, where we had to contact the owner.

Housekeeping came out and he advised us they were going to change the lock , he tried for quite a while to get it to work and was unable to, so he gave us a key. The ice maker did not work , we didn't need it so after the lock problem we just left a note. The upstairs was really, really nice. My wife never saw it though, she was terrified to climb the small spiral staircase to it. It is in a very nice location, and right on the ocean, the downstairs is ok, appliances worked, and it was clean and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Hello Robert, Well, I have never received a three star review before so you will certainly go down in our rental history books! I am sorry you may not have looked at all of our pictures online that clearly show the setup of our condo and the access to the beach or read all the details in our listing or contact me after I explained about the key code changing. I am disappointed that your choice to highlight what you did not take the time to know about our amazing gulf front condo is going to lower our overall score and future guests opinions about whether to book. That is quite unfair. Glad you did compliment our master suite. It is extremely nice since we completed an extensive renovation of the master bathroom just last year. The double sized tiled shower is quite ideal for a couple. As for the key situation, it is amazing how a dead battery can impact a situation so quickly. We feel we were extremely responsive to the key issue and followed up several times with you and our housekeeper about the lock to insure you were not inconvenienced.
