You will fall in love with the Southern charm of Good Day Sunshine in Old Florida Village, a quaint 75 home Seaside style community. Old Florida Village is just yards from Scenic 30A on the Emerald Coast in Santa Rosa Beach. This corner lot lake front home has 2 stories with a front porch facing one of the community pools and two wrap around balconies on each story in the back, off the den and off the master bedroom. Both private balconies face a hidden, small lake and nature area. The southern oak floors throughout the open first floor, stairs, and upstairs hall give the house a casual and relaxing feel. The furniture and decor are new but comfortable and casual, giving the home a charm that can be enjoyed by families with children. The porches and balconies have tables and chairs to enjoy the ocean breeze while you eat or just relax overlooking the hidden lake. There is an outdoor shower by the side deck and parking for 3 cars. The house is located in the front part of the neighborhood closest to the beach (less than .5 miles).
The Streets of Old Florida Village are constructed with pavers throughout the neighborhood. Natural plants, nature areas, palm trees, and lush scenery, lighted streets and white picket fences surround the community. There are 2 pools, each with restroom facilities; one pool is located right across from our house. Old Florida Village is a delightful place to walk and it is located on an 18 mile bike path. Bike rentals are nearby. Local art displays, restaurants, antique shops and cafes are all along 30A. The pace is relaxed and easy.
Goatfeathers Restaurant is located walking distance across 30-A from Old Florida Village. Less than a 10 minute walk leads you to Gulf Place - filled with cute shops and eateries such as Miss Lucille's Gossip Parlor, Smiling Fish Cafe, Gidgets, Hepburns and Patchouli's as well as many other unique and tasteful shops. Gulf Place also has free outdoor concerts 2 nights per week during season.
A public beach access, complete with bathrooms and chair and umbrella rentals, is a short walk away. Lifeguards are on duty during season. Santa Rosa Beach is famous for its crystal clear, blue-green waters. The high dunes provide breathtaking views and miles of sugar white sand.
Santa Rosa Beach is a relaxed and secluded get-away with no high rise condos. Yet just minutes away is one of the largest factory outlets in the country and some of the best restaurants in the Florida Panhandle. There are over a dozen beach communities to visit on Scenic 30A including Seaside. Seaside has weekly outdoor movies and summer plays/children's theater.

I grew up 100 miles from Santa Rosa Beach and my wife and I went on our honeymoon in the area 26 years ago. I can remember the 30a area (as a child) in the early 1970s before it had any siginifcant development.
I purchased the beach house in Old Florida Village because I vacationed in the neighborhood and loved the 30a area after being away from it for a while. The 30a area has Blue Wave Beaches and will never have the crowded density of Panama City Beach or Destin because there are only a handful of buildings over 3 stories in the 18 mile 30a stretch. I have traveled to most of the Carribbean Islands and the 30a beaches are some of the nicest beaches I have ever visited.
Gorgeous white sand beaches, picturesque blue green ocean, brick streets and driveways in the neighborhood, TV and DVD in every bedroom and the den, pillow top mattresses on all queen beds, unique corner lot for privacy and hidden lake in the back with balconies on both floors. Hammock for top back balcony and/or side yard nature area.
Baytowne Wharf, many golf courses, lakes, outlet malls in Destin (15 miles away), Panama City is 30 minutes away, Seaside is within 10 minutes away, white sand beaches are .4 miles away with access, parking and restroom facilities. Elevation above expansive beach is highest in panhandle of Florida. Bike rentals and bike trails are available nearby for 18 mile bike/walking path. Santa Rosa Golf Club is less than two miles away with two holes overlookng the Gulf.
