Included is a daily beach umbrella service, supreme 100% cotton linens and the most comfortable beds, , a gourmet kitchen with top quality cooking tools and cutlery, 6 bicycles, and a gulf front view that spans the entire coast on a clear day from Destin to Panama City from wrap around porches. Over 4600 Sq Ft of indoor living space, It is a two story with the main living and entertaining on the top floor. This open floor plan - bringing the kitchen, living room, fireplace and all eating areas together with breathtaking views of the gulf from every vantage point is the only house on the gulf that offers you this kind of view. It has been called the best house to rent for large family gatherings. In the years of renting this house, there has never been a complaint about the cleanliness of this vacation home as this house is kept in top condition and it shows. Take a minute to view the photos and please read the reviews. Sitting on the porch overlooking the sandy white shore and listening to the waves roll in and out; I am happy to offer you this kind of vacation; a place to relax, to leave the world behind and reacquaint yourself with what's really important - the love of family and friends.

About Jennifer Jernigan

I was born in the area and grew up spending my summer months, 3 months back then, at Grayton Beach, with my 5 brothers and sisters. We had no AC, all slept in one big dorm room, the water tasted like the gulf, and our kitchen stove shocked us when we turned it on! It was very primitive but we have the most wonderful memories of days spent lying on the sugar white sand and putting iodine in our baby oil to get that tan and getting ready in the afternoons to go to the Grayton Beach store at night, now called the Red Bar. A dream of mine was to one day have a house on the beach and I am living proof that dreams come true! I worked the last leg of my career in Atlanta, GA and decided to move here in 2008. The last years have been some of my best. I decided to make the house available to people like you in hopes you will have the experience and joy that I have had of the beautiful beaches here.

Jennifer Jernigan purchased this estate in 2008

Why Jennifer Jernigan chose Santa Rosa Beach

This house and it's location on the west end of 30-A is the best! Anyone who stays in Santa Rosa Beach will tell you the hectic pace and cluster of Seaside and the east end of 30-A gets old really fast. Dreams Come True, in the private gated community of Old Florida Beach, lets your children play in the streets, has a nice community pool, and a dock on Draper Lake where you can launch a kayak or canoe. I bought this property after looking at over 20 houses. It's funny that this was the first one I looked at! Isn't that how it often goes...I absolutely love the wide expansive gulf front porches on both floors. Being able to sit and watch and listen to the gulf roll in and out is where everybody wants to be. The view is incredible and immediately something changes inside of you when you listen to the sounds coming from the shore and smell the clean salt air and hear the laughter of children playing on the beach. This house has 12 foot ceilings downstairs and gives the feel of lots of space. And the upstairs open floor plan has beautiful cypress wood beams which gives the feel of a mountain estate. And I especially enjoy the kitchen! 'No matter where I serve my guests, they seem to like my kitchen best!' The limestone island counter top is 12 feet long and the builder had to build a lift just to get the two limestone pieces up to the kitchen. The sink is marble and both the limestone and marble came from Jerusalem. All of the floors are cypress hardwood and stone or granite in the bathrooms. I have created memories I will never forget here and I hope the same for you!

What makes this estate unique

The expansive views of the beach from the upstairs, the open floor plan of the entire upstairs that allows everyone to be together, the gourmet kitchen and the wrap around porches, the craftsmanship of the woodwork, and the beautiful cypress floors; these are just a few of the reasons I love this house. The bedrooms offer the privacy needed when many people are staying together. I really love the front door! It is made of mahogany and the kids nicknamed it the dungeon door because it is so big and has a large door knocker that they often use! And the front porch is very unique in that it is a semi-circle design unlike any other around. I wanted to buy a home that had a beachy feeling and this home has that and so much more. I have taken great pains and time to keep it in the condition it is in. It is a constant upkeep that I am grateful to have. The salt air can eat through anything. I have painted all the downstair rooms with colors that I love and remind me of the sea. I supplied the house with quality 100% cotton bed linens and plush bath towels. The cool feel of cotton on your skin after a day at the beach is a wonderful feeling! I put 4' durable foam toppers with covers on the beds as I want you to have the same expectations I would have for myself. Leaving a vacation with a hurt back and not being able to sleep because of a hard, old mattress is counter productive. This house lends itself to entertaining large gatherings comfortably and I enjoy making people feel at home.

Absolutely stunning!!!!!! Pictures do not do justice to this fabulous home. Steps to the beach, chairs and umbrellas provided, comfortable beds and a kitchen to absolutely die for! We hosted about 25 people one night for dinner and the kitchen felt empty. Amazing week and much less crowded and crazy than Seaside and Watercolor but only a few miles from both. Near restaurants, grocery store, etc. Best part was dealing with owner. First class and very responsive. HIGHLY RECCOMEND!

Spectacular house!

  • 5 of 5

After traveling 13 hours in the car to get to Florida, we felt like a travel commercial when we walked into the house. We were blown away!! It was perfect. We had 3 families - a total of 10 people - for Thanksgiving. The pictures do not do justice to the 180 degree view of the beach from the family room and kitchen. The kitchen was perfect for cooking. The island was so big that everyone could stand around and cook or visit without getting in each other's way. All the kitchen utensils you could need were provided. The bedrooms were larger than the pictures indicate. All the furnishings were beautiful and comfortable. The open nature of the kitchen and family room meant tons of room for all of us to be together either watching football, cooking, reading, etc. The wrap around deck off the family room/kitchen area provides a beautiful view of the beach. We opened the doors to listen to the ocean everyday. The beach was right out the back door and provided maximum beach time in November. The location is great - very near Walmart, Publix and the seafood store. The owner was delightful to work with and provided us with all kinds of information about activities in the area. In summary, the best house we have stayed in on the beach.

Owner's Response: Deborah, I am so glad to know you and your family enjoyed your time over Thanksgiving. It has been my hope families will experience the beach and all it has to offer just like I did when I was a child growing up here in the summers. I appreciate the kind review and wish you and your family a great new year. Please come back when you can, I enjoyed having you!

Great for big group

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 couples celebrating our turning 60 this year. It was a perfect place to visit, hang out, play games during rain storms, dance, cook together, chill out on the beach. Every couple had their own private bedroom with a bed big enough for 2 (lots of large homes have bunk beds or twins - this had a king and the rest were queens).

We hired a private chef to cook our big birthday dinner and it was wonderful to be able to watch him while we enjoyed his culinary delight.

The great room/kitchen/dining area was a perfect area for a large group. Great owner who helped make our stay special.

Fit for a King!

  • 5 of 5

Rarely have I had such comfortable beds ever! This house is amazing and even better than expected. We were in Santa Rosa Beach for the first time and the beaches are the prettiest we've ever seen and we travel the world. Our family had a reunion and couldn't have picked a better place. And the porch where we all stayed most of the time when we were not on the beach, listening to the sounds of the waves made us wish we didn't have to leave but we will be back!!!

Owner's Response: Hey sister in law and thanks for putting your two cents in even though you have my first and last name LOL!!! I wonder if it might not look suspicious but oh well. I will see you at the holidays!

Santa Rosa Beach, Florida is truly home to the most beautiful sandy white sugary beaches in the world! Within steps of your beach house await the most relaxing and enjoyable moments. A day at the beach entertains children until the sun sets and adults can leisurely relax and listen to the ocean waves rolling in and out. A few hundred feet down is Draper Lake, one of the areas natural dune lakes. During the summer the tides roll up to the lake and erodes a pass allowing the lake to open up to the gulf. Draper Lake is a favorite spot for children who want to swim in clean fresh water and play sport activities as it is not very deep. A 20 minute drive west is Silver Sands, one of the largest, high end outlet malls in the US.

Hwy. 30-A is a 27 mile scenic route along the coast. A bike path runs the entire length allowing you to stop in each of the popular small beaches like Seaside, Rosemary, and Grayton. Sacred Heart Hospital is 15 minutes away and voted one of the top 8 hospitals in Florida.
