Come and vacation in our beautifully furnished, well maintained 1-bedroom unit on the top (4th) floor facing the Gulf. 3 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs, tennis courts, shuffleboard, lush landscaping, and the BEACH!
The balcony allows you bird's-eye views of the pool area, the private lake, and the waters of the Gulf, including some spectacular sunsets when Mother Nature provides them. It is L-shaped, oversized for the 1BR units because of its location in the building, with south and southeast exposures. This gives some protection from the afternoon sun, but the sunsets are still viewable and sunrises are out there if you're an early riser. The balcony has a table and chairs for outside dining, or just relaxing and taking in the view.
The bedroom has a queen-sized bed. There are two bunks in the hallway, and a queen-sized sofa sleeper in the living room. The fully-equipped kitchen has been recently updated with stainless appliances, new countertops and tile floor. There are plenty of cabinets and workspace if you want to eat in some of the time. If you don’t quite want to get away from it all, there’s free wireless internet access.
The beach is just across the road and down the deeded access boardwalk - perhaps a 50 yard walk. There’s also a nice walking/jogging trail through the property, leading you to tennis and shuffleboard. If you like biking, there is a 23 mile biking trail that goes by. The 18-hole 'Santa Rosa' course at the Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club is adjacent to Gulf Place. Picnic in one of several nearby state parks-- take a short hike and experience a wide variety of natural resources including coastal forests and wetlands, pristine white-sand beaches with majestic dunes, and rare coastal dune lakes.
At the intersection of county roads 393 and 30A, Gulf Place is a planned resort community made up of condos and private townhomes, a large grassy amphitheater, and a commercial area of artist kiosks, boutiques, and eateries. Everyone likes Miss Lucille’s Gossip Parlor where the coffee is always hot, the ice cream a treat, and the bakery goods hard to pass up. The landscape crew keeps the grounds lush and green. There’s a security patrol at night, just in case.
Further afield, golf is just down the road, or you can easily drive to Sandestin and Destin to the west, or Seaside and Grayton Beach to the east. You will find many places to eat and shop along the way. There are five eating places within walking distance of the condo.

We also have a 2BR/2BA unit at Gulf Place Caribbean. It is an end unit with added privacy, lots of windows and light, a panoramic view of the lake from the patio, and a spacious master bedroom. Located on the ground floor, it is only a few steps from the heated pool, hot tub, charcoal grill, and parking.
