About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

This industrial-chic Gulf Breeze home is luxury at its finest with a 25-foot dock on a canal that feeds into the Santa Rosa Sound! Enjoy a Gulf front vacation with the whole family or an intimate escape with friends!

The canal is a gorgeous waterway lined by palm trees that feeds into the Gulf of Mexico. The home is just four miles from town and two miles from the Naval Life Oaks Reservation (part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore).

The two-story home offers fantastic interior design, two downstairs living rooms, a gourmet kitchen, and a pool table. Relax by the gas fireplace on breezy days or enjoy media entertainment including a sound dock, WiFi, and a flatscreen TV.

Dine indoors at the kitchen island or formal table, or make your way to the lush patio boasting a dining table with seating for six and a gas grill.

The weather will invite you to spend days on the patio! The tropical space is fully stocked with chaise lounges and accent tables so you can sunbathe or relax with a fruity drink and good book!

On the water, your private dock is perfect for fishing and serves as the gateway to deep-sea fishing adventures and dolphin watching. Please note, however, that guests do not have access to a boat lift and that all crafts must be tied to the dock and no more than 25 feet in length.

The Santa Rosa Sound and island community of Gulf Breeze boast miles of white sand beaches and unique habitat. Whether hiking, shopping, or indulging in fresh seafood and margaritas in town, this charming community offers something for everyone!

Plan your water world adventure in this luxury home along Florida's Emerald Coast today!

(Please be aware that the garage is unavailable for guest use - the owner lives nearby on his boat and uses the garage for a workspace.)

Lots of space

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here while meeting up with family for a mini-reunion. There were just two of us; we didn’t make use of all the space. Met up with the owner briefly when we first arrived and then later when my family came by as he was working outside when they came. He seemed to hit it off with them and offered us all lemons from his tree. The dog was very friendly. I still felt like they gave us privacy.

I loved the house and surrounding property.

The layout of the house was great. Very comfortable, and having the pool table was a great bonus.

Good place to rent, I'd stay again

  • 5 of 5

*Nice home, great location, easy access to the sound.

*Clean, and comfortable, wonderful towels.

*Coffee pot is terrible ;) I asked them to replace it, took 25 minutes to make a pot.

*Just something to note, owner stays out back in his boat with his dog, Tucker. They were not intrusive and he was helpful when needed. (I believe he lives in home when it is not rented.) But he's around, just know that.

*Only one role of TP per bathroom, one roll of paper towels and 3 kitchen garbage bags. I would expect back up in these...(Maybe they'll change that after my review.)

*garbage disposal had a posted sign not to use. Said it didn't work. Perhaps they just didn't want the wrong kind of things put in it so they said not to use it.

*Overall, it was a nice place and it was easy. We were in town for a family function so had a place to gather, to hold a brunch and to dock our boat. We rarely went anywhere by car, took boat everywhere. Didn't have a boat slip as advertised but it did have a dock.

Owner's Response: We appreciate receiving this feedback. As mentioned in the listing the owner does live on a boat nearby, but he is very respectful of guest privacy. The home does have a boat slip for guest use; we ask that guests please call if they are unsure of any advertised amenities. The coffee pot has been replaced, and at this time we ask that guests please not use the garbage disposal. Thank you!

Beautiful property with lots of amenities

We had a great time at this property. John the owner was friendly and responded to any minor issues quickly. Our children didn't want to leave at the end of the trip! Quiet neighborhood near to Navarre and Pensacola beaches.

About Vacasa, FL - Emerald Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!
