Seacrest Beach Studio Rental Photos and Description

1 Queen bed, 1 Queen sleep sofa, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

This Beach Combin' condo in the new European-style Village of South Walton is your affordable get-away in the heart of Florida's upscale Emerald Coast. Think 'Luxury Beach Community meets Andy of Mayberry meets Romance.' No matter what you want to do - Escape by Yourself, Reconnect with a Loved One or just Decompress - this is the place to do it. Dining in or dining out is equally easy. Arguably the most beautiful beach in the world (one of the World's Top 10 Beaches in 2011) and the largest pool in the SE are just a brief stroll from your door. Venturing out for discount shopping, birdwatching, deepsea fishing, live theatre, and myriad Gulf-related activities.

Upscale Beach Unit Value with Up-to-Date Features: If you are looking for the perfect place for that overdue romantic getaway or 'escape' trip, you have found it. Just a few minutes' walk from the sugar-sand beach, this quaint condo, called Beach Combin', with WIFI available in the condo or free at several local businesses, is located in the new European-style development in the heart of Seacrest Beach on Scenic Hwy. 30A, along Florida's increasingly popular Emerald Coast. Two Pools == one is just behind the building door; the second is the largest one in the SE, just a 3-5-minute stroll away. My Beach Combin' unit now has masses of books of all varieties -- stashed in the boat shelf, a floor basket and the 'secret compartments' of the wine bar.

Pools, Beach, Cafes, Shopping -- Within minutes: You are only a few minutes walk from the beach and Seacrest's massive 12,000 square foot pool, the largest in the Southeast, complimentary to guests only and available via complimentary tram in season, if you like. This unit is also a 15-minute drive to the main attractions of Panama City Beach and Destin. It is the perfect escape! Enjoy easy access to even more fabulous shops and cafes at nearby, upscale Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, including a Wine/Cheese bar & café, a book shop, bike rental and a toy store. (only a 3-minute walk),.....

Take advantage of the professional theatre in Seaside (5 min. drive) and easy access to Panama City Beach and its new family-focused entertainment areas, like Ripley's Believe It or Not, Aquarium venues and more shopping at new Pier Park. (15 min. drive)

Rare Value Option in a Luxury Beach Community: The Village offers multiple restaurants and shopping just steps from your door. And, upscale Rosemary Beach next door is full of unique shops, ice cream parlors, and the best outdoor cafes and wine bars, some with free Internet access.

The Villages of Seacrest Beach offers:

-- A lap pool at the back of my building -- handy and accessible. -- A free tram, on schedule in season, to take you to the 12,000 sq.ft. Seacrest Beach pool or the beach. -- Plus, there are yummy restaurants, ice cream/coffee cafes and beach shops on the green just downstairs.

About Julie Fulton

I'm a 'Southern Girl, born in East Tennessee and then migrated to Dallas, where I was part of a global corporation for the majority of my career. Recently, I've migrated to the consulting world, where I can use my years of communications experience to help other organizations. When I 'get away,' I've always preferred the Beaches of South Walton in the Panhandle. The stress just melts away. As you will see, I've created a relaxing experience inside my condo with the hope that your cares will evaporate during your time 'at the beach' also.

Julie Fulton purchased this studio in 2004

Why Julie Fulton chose Seacrest Beach

In traveling the world, I can find no more gorgeous beaches than on the unique 17-mile stretch of Scenic 30A in the Panhandle's South Walton County. So, when I had a choice of where to spend beach time with friends and family, Seacrest Beach along Scenic 30A was the easy choice. This unique area of the U.S. can best be described as 'Laid-back, upscale Florida living meets 'Andy of Mayberry.''

Because I love the area so much....and want others to will find that I will be very helpful and personally 'hands on' to answer questions, provide information and ensure your experience in the South Walton County beach area is as perfect as possible.

What makes this studio unique

Convenient and secure WIFI in the condo + LOADS of books stashed in all corners. Extra-comfy, high-quality bed. Upscale, but fun and whimsical beach decor specially selected to ensure a relaxing experience for guests. The beach and giant pool are just a 3-5 minute walk,... PLUS, there is a Free tram exclusively for this property...runs every 20 minutes in season...especially helpful for guests carrying lots of beach or pool 'stuff.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

The rest was wonderful.

The wedding was beautiful.

All seems right with the world from this lovely viewpoint.

This is our second time to stay at this condo and we loved it even more the second time around. The property is amazing!!! The location is unbelievable, comfortable, safe, friendly, fun, upscale, beautiful and clean beaches. The condo is relaxing and nicely decorated. It has such a fresh and airy feeling to it that welcomes you the minute you walk in. Very clean. The bed is so comfortable. We used the sofa sleeper which also provided a good night sleep. For a studio condo it offered ample space for all of us; very roomy. The windows provide a nice view and It was great to look out on July 4 and watch the fire works over the ocean. There was plenty of area for eating at the table for 4 and we had everything we needed in the kitchenette for our meals. We took a cooler for our drinks and used the mini fridge for everything else. We prepared breakfast and lunches each day in the condo and went out to dinner at a different restaurant each night. We spent plenty of time at the beach enjoying the crystal clear waters on Yellow Flag days; On Red Flag days we opted for the pools. The lagoon pool is amazing, but it was so convenient to have the smaller pool right outside the door of our building. The fountains out front also provided plenty of entertainment for the little one. We had so much fun renting bikes and letting the kids ride everywhere. It was a treat to be able to walk to dinner each night and enjoy and icecream cone afterwards. The location and setting of your condo is perfect. We're already planning our next trip. Thanks again for another great vacation!!

Owner's Response: Kristynn, So glad your family opted to stay in my condo again. It's important to me that my guests feel like they are in a well-loved "home" of their own while they are enjoying the Emerald Coast. See you again next year. Nancy

Upscale, comfortable, convenient

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for an upscale, comfortable, convenient, yet affordable studio condo on 30A....this is perfect! My daughter and I traveled to the Destin area to plan her upcoming wedding and to hopefully enjoy some time on the beautiful white beaches. This condo is beautifully decorated and furnished everything we needed, including beach chairs and an umbrella. The beach is just a short walk away as well as the amazing lagoon pool but the Tram that runs every 20 mins was perfect when we were carrying more than a beach bag. This is a very friendly bike riding area and we loved having the bike rentals right outside our door. The kitchenette was nicely furnished and had everything we need to prepare light meals, including wine glasses and bottle opener!! The owner and property manager were easily accessible, always returned phone call promptly.

We didn't get to enjoy as many of the shops and restaurants as we would have liked as the wedding planning took a lot of our time, but we'll be back and this cozy studio condo will be our first choice.

Relaxing yet Fun

Clean. Quaint. Peaceful.

The studio itself was perfect for our 3 person family. The area was peaceful and provided several family fun activities: several restaurants, shops, pools, and bike riding. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Hi Kimberly, Thanks so much for your thoughtful and descriptive review. We agree that the Villages of South Walton, Seacrest Beach, and 30A are an ideal place to relax. My unit seems to attract individuals, couples and small families that want an upscale, comfortable, yet affordable, place to get-away. And, because our condo is ideally situated between Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach, visitors to either of those locations for weddings or celebrations find that they can stay in our condo at a lower price, yet have a high-end experience........and are literally only a 2-minute walk to either Rosemary or Alys. We will look forward to welcoming you back at any time. In fact, the fall and spring are really ideal times. Then again, it's always a good time to come to 30A...:) Best, Nancy

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I just spent a week in this beautiful condo and it far exceeded our expectations! The condo came with everything we needed and was relaxing, clean and had adorable decorations. The WIFI worked well. Both beds were amazingly comfortable. The kitchen is complete with all the amenities included in the list. The condo is in a quaint, family-friendly town and the property was very well kept and beautiful. We felt so safe during the day and at night. The large pool is close to the condo and is gorgeous, and the beach is just a quick couple minute walk. The whole area has cute little shops, nice restaurants in walking distance, and a peaceful atmosphere. We were so impressed with our entire vacation. I will definitely be coming back in the future, and will recommend this condo and town to everyone. Staying at Beach Combin' was the best decision we made our whole trip!

Owner's Response: Hi Ellie, Thank you for the very nice review. And, your descriptions are so accurate, even down to the beach, pool and restaurant guidance. And, I'm glad the condo's amenities met all your needs and expectations. That's important. It sounds like you and your girlfriends got to experience 30A as I do --- that "Andy of Mayberry," "everything is wonderful" kind of being. Come back anytime. We would love to host you again at Beach Combin'....:) Nancy

A good value.

  • 3 of 5

This place is in a prime spot to go to the beach or to head to the pool. The beach can be accessed by a golf cart, which makes a run every half hour. The large lagoon pool is awesome and within walking distance. The lap pool is right outside - nobody does laps. People just swim and have fun in it.

A short walk lands you in a nice area to shop and dine. Bikes can be rented downstairs. There is also a small convenience store and restaurants, shops, etc. downstairs. The pictured fountains in the common area are no longer operating - our daughter looked forward to it, but was disappointed.

The unit is cozy and well appointed. The sofa bed is not for those with sensitive backs, as it is a bit lumpy. Like all condos, be prepared to deal with noisy neighbors - we heard music all day from the yogurt shop directly below us, as well as heavy footsteps from the tenants above us. It is a studio, but not terribly small. Only one of the windows open - the others are broken. The A/C unit is very noisy, making odd noises throughout the night that make it hard to sleep.

Still, this place offers a lot of bang for the buck, when considering that you will pay a higher price for a comparable unit.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review. You've done a nice job of pinpointing what is great about 30A and the central and convenient location of my condo. And I do try to offer an exceptional value for my guests, so thank you for mentioning that. One fact that might be helpful to understand --- Because the sea air is notorious for causing rust and wear on inside fixtures, most beach owners never open their windows, which is why the windows in the Villages were not designed to be opened on an ongoing basis. There should have been small window signs asking that the windows not be opened for that reason. The last time I stayed in my unit, I didn't hear the yogurt shop music and made a point of thanking the owner for that. Possibly, he has increased the volume, so thank you very much for letting me know. The owner is very nice and amenable, so I'm certain he'll scale back on the volume, if asked. I hope you'll stay with us again the next time you're on wonderful 30A!
