BRIGHT BEAUTIFUL BEACHHOUSE - CLOSEST HOUSE TO THE BEACH IN OFV!!!

Santa Rosa Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 9

“Alma at the Sea” is a rental home located in the heart of the Emerald Coast on 30-A and is the perfect home for your next unforgettable beach experience! Just steps away from breathtaking white beaches and crystal blue waters of the Gulf, this home is in the perfect location – CLOSEST HOUSE TO THE BEACH in Old Florida Village. Unlike most houses in OFV, which have other houses on both sides, the south side of this home opens up to beautiful magnolia trees and a view of the Gulf from the master bedroom.

This beautiful non-smoking home has been furnished with brand new furniture and appliances, decorated with a chic beachy feel and a focus on luxurious comfort to maximize your vacation experience. It features three spacious bedrooms with three full baths, and very comfortably sleeps nine in TWO KING BEDS (one upstairs, one downstairs) and a bunk room with one twin bunk and one twin over a full bunk. Each bedroom has its own private porch, featuring amazing sea breezes straight from the beach.

'Alma at the Sea': “Alma at the Sea” is a beautiful non-smoking home has never been lived in and has been furnished with brand new furniture and appliances, decorated with a chic beachy feel and a focus on luxurious comfort to maximize your vacation experience. It features three spacious bedrooms with three full baths, and very comfortably sleeps nine in TWO KING BEDS (one upstairs, one downstairs) and a bunk room with one twin bunk and one twin over a full bunk. Each bedroom has its own private porch, featuring amazing sea breezes straight from the beach. After a day at the beach or pool, an outdoor shower allows for a quick clean up. During downtime, you can also enjoy the large open kitchen with a breakfast bar and stools and an adjacent dining area, or settle on the large comfy couch to watch HDTV with a DVD player. WIRELESS INTERNET and unlimited local and long-distance calls are also provided.

Old Florida Village: Old Florida Village is the perfect community for family vacations, with two relaxing community pools (one mere steps away), adorable cottage-style homes, plenty of room for children to play and chase the ice cream truck, and paved driveways. The beach access across the street includes bathrooms, showers, a covered picnic area and parking.

Here, you are a short walk or bike ride away from Gulf Place (where you will find outdoor concerts, local art displays and shops and eateries) and close to other beach communities such as Blue Mountain, Dune Allen, Grayton, Water Color and Seaside where fine dining, shopping and a salon/spa can be found. At the entrance to the village are eighteen miles of bike paths and the Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club is just down the street. Looking for a day in town? You will be just a few miles from shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, water parks, miniature golf, etc. in Destin (including the largest designer outlet mall in the country in Sandestin).

Alma

This advertiser has been with HomeAway.com since 2009
Speaks english, french

I am a former lawyer turned entrepreneur and avid traveler. My love for travel started right here along 30A. Every summer, my mom would pack my brother and I into the car to drive down from Maryland to visit my great-grandmother in Seagrove Beach, where she and her two sisters had settled decades earlier. Through those trips, I saw 30A grow each year from 18 miles of open forest (yes, even where Seaside is now!) to the thriving collection of beach communities that it is today.

Upon graduation from law school, I settled in New York for many years until my love for the outdoors got the best of me. I have traveled extensively throughout North America, South America, Europe and South Africa, as well as to Australia and Antarctica, with Thailand next on the agenda. Both of my properties are decorated with photos I've taken during my travels, which can also be found on my website, www.a2photos.com.

Alma purchased this house in 2009

I always knew that when I bought a home, it would be along 30A. Soon after I went to college, my mom moved to Seagrove Beach from Maryland where I grew up. Since then, 30A has not only been a place of childhood summer memories, but also where I go home to visit my family, which extends to more descendants than I can count of my great-grandmother (who had four children) and her two sisters, many of whom also own homes all along 30A.

Having extensively traveled myself, I view my properties as my opportunity to give other travelers the experience that I want when I travel. From soft towels to a responsive host, I want you to have the experience that I would want and, if you don't, I really do feel your pain and will do all I can to fix it. From the beginning, I have closely managed everything about my properties, including designing and decorating, and building the furniture myself (with some able assistance from friends and family!) Helping me in the day to day management are my mom and my lovely housekeeper, both of whom live only a short drive away. There is no management company standing between you and the owner, and my focus is on you, not shuttling guests through hundreds of properties. This is a personal effort and we will do everything we can to make sure that you have a wonderful trip.
