Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Inlet Beach - Tucked-away at Inlet Beach

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Townhome Gulf Front That Sleeps 6 On The Gulf Of Mexico

Located between Carillon and Rosemary Beaches, this renovated two-story town-home that sleeps 6 offers seclusion and beautiful sugary-white sands of Inlet Beach. The town-home borders the Camp Helen State Park offering unobstructed views of Florida's natural beauty in the park. Walk the uncrowded beaches to the Camp Helen pier to collect shells, see the Sea Turtle nests and birds in flight in the protected bird sanctuary.

With no high rises or hotels our beach is not crowded and is perfect for stargazing in the night skies. We use the Sky Guide app for identifying stars, planets and constellations.

Our two bedroom, two full bath town-home is totally updated with appliances, paint, lights and new interior design. Both bedrooms have a balcony, queen bed and TV. The living room sofa makes into a queen bed.

We have updated the kitchen with granite counters and new appliances. It has everything you need cook or grill out. Both the kitchen and the living room have private decks to enjoy the spectacular views. There is an outdoor shower and a washer/dryer and covered parking for two cars.

We have several board games, books, WiFi, Bose sound dock, and a TV in the living room. For your convenience you're welcome to use our 2 beach umbrellas, 6 beach chairs, two boogie boards, a paddle ball/Kadima set, and a Frisbee.

This piece of paradise is less than one mile from all the restaurants along 30-A beginning at Rosemary Beach and the Shoppes of Avenue-A. Just 7 miles to the east is Pier Park. There is fun for kids & adults including amusement rides, shopping and movies at the Grand 16.

The Donut Hole, Publix and Winn Dixie are within two miles away.

Why Timothy & Sue Esslinger chose South Walton

This piece of paradise is one of a kind. Its location is just perfect and is the only cul-de-sac next to Camp Helen State Park. No busy touristy distractions. Just the beauty of the beach and the natural, unspoiled landscape of Camp Helen State Park.

What makes this house unique

The views from any of the four decks offer sunsets or sunrises are worthy of National Geographic photography. The native plants and weathered sand dunes help make the location a place to really unwind.

Quiet beautiful beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to this condo and this area. There was plenty of space for us(and our 3 young boys!). The condo was updated and decorated/furnished very nicely. There are also 4 large balconies. The condo is at the end of a dead end road because it's right next to a state park(very quiet and peaceful), so there is literally NO traffic. There is a nice walkway over the dunes to the beach. The sand is white, the water is green and clear-it felt like Caribbean waters. My boys caught hermit crabs, sand crabs, saw jellyfish, etc daily! The water was calm and there was a sandbar and my boys played for hours. We rented bikes and it's just 1 mile easy ride to Rosemary beach where there are cute shops and restaurants. Seriously- perfect family location.

At first I was disappointed that the laundry is downstairs by carport in a locked closet, but it was easy because it was large and I'd just throw it in and head to beach.

We would definitely go back!

Cozy, calm getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience! The property is tucked away from the masses but still minutes from everything. The town home was clean and beautiful. The beach is close and quiet with only a few others anywhere near us. We are definitely making this an annual trip!

Great time at Inlet Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Beautiful ocean views, and the upper balconies were great for star gazing. We happened to be there at the peak of a meteor shower, and it was amazing. The property is very clean and nicely furnished. Sue and Tim took the time to send us recommendations for some great restaurants too!

Wonderful all around

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well stocked and neatly kept. We love to cook and so often the utensils are at a minimum- that was not the case here. Our entire family said this was the best vacation ever. The location was perfect- quiet yet close to activities. Sue and Tim were amazing to deal with. They were prompt and polite. Thank you for everything.

This home is one of the cleanest I have stayed in. As we opened the door it was fresh and beautifully updated. Everything was as stated in the description. The owners are awesome and very quick to respond. Usually within the hour. This area is the place for you if you desire a slower pace and peace and quiet!

Thank you Sue and Tim for a wonderful vacation and for sharing your home with us!

If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet beach experience look no further! The condo is comfortable, well maintained and beautiful, has everything you need at your disposal, and is exactly as you see in the pictures. The views are stunning! Although the property is a bit secluded, you are very near all the hustle and bustle of 30-A and Panama City Beach. The owners are great to work with, and responded to any emails, etc. very quickly. We could not have been happier with our experience at this property.
