It's quickly filling up so if you're looking for a wonderful summer vacation spot along the Gulf of Mexico, make your plans to visit our beautiful Parfait Lieu at Sunset Beach this summer!
This peaceful home is located Gulf side, in the private resort community of Sunset Beach. The beautiful gated resort is on the south side of Scenic Highway 30A in South Walton County, just west of Rosemary Beach and directly south of Seacrest Beach. Stroll down a bricked walkway, lined with Palm trees, to the heated pool that sits high on the dunes, above the gorgeous, white sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico.
This home has a spa like feeling. Beautifully furnished, fresh and not over decorated. Travertine stone and oak hardwood floors, granite kitchen countertops, stainless-steel appliances, washer and dryer with televisions in all rooms. It also has a two-vehicle, very unusual beach side! No getting into a hot car. There is a private gated courtyard with a hot and cold outdoor shower.
NOTE...the garage can accommodate most vehicles but an oversize SUV will not fit inside.
The ground floor has a room with two double beds and a private bath. Upstairs there is the kitchen with bar that seats 8 and a living area with a queen size sofa bed and double French doors, that open to a deck with a view of the resort and Gulf. The master has a king size bed and a private bath. With 2 bicycle rental shops nearby, you can ride to the restaurants and shops next door. This is a perfect home to visit the Emerald Coast, no matter what the season!
It's an easy walk or bike ride to some great locations. Turn right out of the complex and you will soon be in downtown Rosemary with its lovely shops and restaurants. Rosemary features some great restaurants, shops, coffee and wine bars and the Sugar Shack candy store for kids of all ages. Turn left and you will be in the beautiful Alys Beach community featuring some stunning architecture, more shops and more great restaurants.
If you want to travel by vehicle, the Seaside and Water Color communities are only minutes to the west along 30A. By car, the Panama City Beach and Destin areas are both within 30 minutes.
For tennis players, you can bike to the Rosemary Beach Tennis Center in just minutes. The facility features 8 clay courts, including 6 with lights. The pros feature a number of clinics and private lessons for all levels. There are other tennis facilities within a short drive at Seaside and Water Color, all of which feature daily tennis clinics with tennis pros. Within an hour, you can take a private lesson on the grass courts of Sandestin.
For golfers, there are several public courses in the area.
It's also a shopper's dream, with Destin's Silver Sands Outlet Center only 30 minutes to the west, and the expanded Pier Park shopping and entertainment center in Panama City 15 minutes to the east.
Our home is more convenient than ever, being only a short drive from the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) with service from Delta and Southwest. American has added service in 2018 to and from Dallas/Fort Worth and Charlotte.
We have visited the Beaches of South Walton for a number of years, and fell in love with Sunset Beach immediately. We know you will enjoy one of the most beautiful communities along the Gulf.

About Cal Callaway
My wife and I fell in love with the Emerald Coast shortly after we were married. It's a second home to our entire family, and we know you'll love it as well.
Cal Callaway purchased this House in 2004
Why Cal Callaway chose West Panama City Beach
We simply love the Sunset Beach area on the eastern end of 30A, an easy bike ride to downtown Rosemary Beach with its lovely shops and restaurants. It's a fabulous place for a vacation.

Enjoyed the stay...comfortable and welcoming and in walking distance to great restaurants and shopping! Owner was helpful and available for any questions.
Clean, spacious, nicely decorated ( not cluttered ).
This was our 5th year in Seacrest. We love it there! The home was very clean, not a lot of clutter. We love the porch and outside shower. Beds were comfy. Air condition was great! Shower head in master bath not so good. Kitchen amenities were slim. No blender ( a must have) no baking dishes or pans ( 9x13) and Tupperware lids that didn't fit. We will be back.
We had a wonderful time! The condo had absolutely everything we needed. It was very well decorated and comfortable. The location was perfect. We definitely will come back. The owner was gracious and accommodating. He checked in while we were down there and made sure we had everything we needed. Many thanks to Mr. Callaway.
An awesome week at Parfait Lieu
Four of us spent a sun-soaked, relaxing week at Parfait Lieu. Cal was awesome to work with as we were planning our stay, and the house followed suit. It is perfectly set up for 4-6 people, with a two-story layout that gives each bedroom lots of privacy. The second-floor kitchen/living area is filled with light, and leads out to a porch that is perfect for morning coffee or afternoon drinks.
The only potential watchouts: the kitchen is outfitted fairly well, but like a lot of places there are a few comforts of home that would have been nice to see, and we would recommend bringing your own sheets. The sheets offered by the rental company left a little to be desired. All in all though, nothing too significant.
Awesome home away from home
We have thoroughly enjoyed visiting Parfait Lieu for the past 7 years. The home is amazing in a private, gated community with friendly security. The beaches are pristine and the entire area is beautifully landscaped and scenic. One look at the ocean and you see why it's called the emerald coast with clear green and blue water and white, soft sand beach. The pool and deck are very clean. It's a short walk down the breezeway to the pool and beach. The home provides plenty of room with lots of windows and doors for sunlight and a nice breeze. The deck is on the second floor providing scenic views with some privacy. A great place to enjoy a family or couples getaway. Everhying you need is within walking distance or bike. The locals are very friendly with plenty of dining options and multiple types of community entertainment from music to outdoor plays and movies. The architecture In each nearby neighborhood is unique. The Callaways have been wonderful hosts, communicate well and sincerely want their guests to enjoy their stay.
Excellent location and wonderful house!
Cal was wonderful to work with. The house was lovely; just as pictured. The location was perfect—beachside on 30A and walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Rosemary and Alys Beach. We have been vacationing along 30A for close to 20 years. This house ranks as one of our favorite rentals for our family of 4.
