Perks for the Parents

This gated beachfront townhouse has views of the ocean from the master bedroom and plenty of space to play, with a white sand beach just steps away. Two beachfront balconies overlook the Gulf of Mexico and 1 deck leads directly over the dunes to the beach. The house is part of a gated community with a green space, gazebo, pool and jacuzzi plus plenty of space for kids to ride bikes and play games while parents relax. It is walking distance to restaurants, a locally-made ice cream shop, seafood market and stores. Santa Rosa Golf and Tennis is nearby and open to the public. If you are a shopper, the San Destin outlets are just 15 minutes by car. The property works well for a large family or 2 families traveling together.

Why Kids Love it

The location, so close to the beach, is easy with kids. The pool and nearby parks keep them occupied and happy, as does the nearby water park and other family attractions in the area. In the house, the open plan second floor makes living/playing easy, and there is a full bathroom on this floor also. There is a dedicated children’s bedroom with 2 bunkbeds. The hosts include a list of kid friendly restaurants and local attractions to guests on booking. Ride a bike, walk or run along the 30A path, visit one of the beautiful pristine state beach parks, horseback ride or fish. Some toys, books and games provided; a babysitter may be available on request by prior arrangement. Note limited provision for those with infants.

Things to Know

The pool is heated during certain months of the year. There are 2 flights of stairs in the home with no stairgates. Linens are provided but beach towels must be supplied by guests. Car rental is essential. It is close to grocery stores, Publix and a local gourmet health food store plus a Walmart with great homemade smoothies and baked goods.

About the Location

There is no traffic, quiet beaches, lots of restaurants and attractions including watersports, dolphin watching, shopping and snorkelling. The Gulf of Mexico is just a few steps from the back deck; Choctawhatchee Bay is a short drive away.

Accommodation Details

This beachfront townhouse has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and is set over 3 floors. The first floor has a deck with ocean views, a bedroom with kingsize bed and ensuite bathroom, a children’s bedroom with 2 bunk beds (both with a fullsize on the bottom and twin on the top) and a laundry room. The second floor has the main living space with a balcony with ocean views and open plan lounge/dining area and kitchen. There is also a full bathroom on this level.

Style Notes

Modern beachfront living. This property was renovated in 2016 to include a new kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops, and new furniture including mattresses. The location is idyllic and the house makes the most of it, with windows in the living room providing a beautiful view of the fountain on one side and the ocean on the other. Through the door, there is a private balcony offering 90-degree views of the Gulf of Mexico. We love the quiet coastal location, offering sounds of the ocean to lull you to sleep, the chef’s kitchen for easy family meals, and the amenities overall for a simple family stay.

We have a 2 year old boy who loves to play and explore. We searched for the perfect beach home for over a year before buying this property. It is the best kept secret on 30A.

Destin, Florida

Postcard-perfect beaches on the Emerald Coast

Set in northwest Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, Destin is famed for its white sand beaches and pellucid waters. On the Florida pan handle, it has superb fishing, dining and watersports, and, along with larger resorts, water parks and family attractions, has quiet beaches to seek out. Snorkel in the clear water, take boat trips to see dolphins and eat super fresh fish from the Gulf and Choctawhatchee Bay.
