About the property

Walk in and feel right at home in this newly renovated upscale townhome in beautiful Gulf Place. Step out your back door to the large lagoon pool or tennis facility. The home has large family room, dining, kitchen and one queen size bedroom all located on the first floor. Upstairs you have a large master suite with king bed and large bath with private porch that overlooks pool, second bedroom has king bed and private bath as well. There is a pack N play for smaller children (located in master closet)

A screened porch for those summer evenings is located off the family room and overlooks the large lagoon pool (one of three pools in the complex). . Sofa in living area has a very comfortable roll away bed (queen bed) for additional sleeping space.

The home is professionally decorated with overstuffed sofas and chairs. There are Flat screen T.V.'s in living area and master suite, another T.V. in second master bedroom. All T.V's have DVD players as well. Loads of family games and books in living area. The kitchen is equipped with all the essentials for those family meals.

Within the lovely Gulf Place community, you can visit the boutique shops, dine at the restaurants or relax at Miss Lucille’s Internet Cafe. There are also walking and biking trails, shuffle board, concerts on the green every weekend and three deeded beach accesses.

Come relax and never have to move your car. However you may want to visit the largest outlet mall in the USA only six miles west. Baytowne Wharf is only five miles away - and Destin ten miles west. There is so much to do and we look forward to having you stay with us.

I will be happy to provide more photos of second bedroom, tennis courts, and other pools, upon request.

About Sherry Carter

I am a local Real Estate Broker and broker in Charlotte, N.C. I have enjoyed the 30-A experience for a number of years, the beaches and the 30-A experience is never a dull one. It is a lovely place to visit and our beaches are the most beautiful in the USA. Come stay, enjoy and we hope you will join us along 30-A for many vacations to come.

Sherry Carter purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Sherry Carter chose Santa Rosa Beach

Gulf Place is ideal for families and friends. With 3 pools, tennis courts, shops, dining and so much to do without leaving the complex makes Gulf Place your perfect destination. The beach is only steps away and you will never miss a sunset. The Outlet Mall is only 3 miles and Destin Commons (large shopping center) is only 5 miles away. You can visit Destin Harbor, rent a boat or just enjoy the shopping in Destin. 30-A is known for some of the best restaurants in the area, dining is always a treat as most places have nightly music and entertainment. There is a bike trail that extends the entire 18 miles of 30-A and you will always find bikers and walkers along the trails. 30-A is an experience and we look forward to having you experience the many aspects in our area. You will be delighted with our beach, community and relaxing atmosphere.

What makes this townhome unique

Private decks off every bedroom and living area. The pool and tennis courts are only steps away. Walk down and grab a cup of coffee at the coffee shop or walk to dinner at one of the wonderful restaurants in the complex. Relax and enjoy the quiet area and peaceful sound of the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoy our out of town guest and always want to make their stay special. Gulf Place is a special place with so many things to do, pool, beach, tennis, shopping and wonderful places to eat. We look forward to your return and sharing this amazing complex and all 30-A has to offer

Comfortable and inviting

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was a perfect fit for us. It was easy to settle in and relax. Everything was well maintained. The only issue that arose was in regard to a community amenity and with one quickly responded to email, Sherry was able to get us updated on what was going on with the association's work.

There are few good, not stellar places within easy walking distance and a short walk for a relaxing couple's massage. The beach is a very reasonable walk away. Grocery stores and better restaurants are a short drive. Our experience was that other than lousy traffic on Saturdays the traffic around Santa Rosa is low key.

There are a few seafood markets nearby and will steam any items you want. Pick up fresh seafood or freshly steamed and use that as the centerpiece of a meal cooked in the well supplied kitchen. The open design allows you to cook and stay engaged with the rest of the family.

If you can't navigate stairs or just cannot compromise on seeing the beach out your window, this isn't your property but for us it was a delight to stay in.

Owner's Response: I enjoy sharing my town home with visitors to the 30A corridor, to experience the beautiful beach and our slow pace of beach living. I do update the town home every year with new items or even a remodel.. My repeat clients love seeing the new look from year to year. The pool right out the back door is a delight as you can sit on the porch and watch friends and family if you do not want to sit by the pool.. I look forward to your return very soon..

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a wonderful stay in this lovely townhouse! It was absolutely perfect for us. The townhouse was very comfortable, beautifully decorated, quiet and offered everything we needed. The pool was just steps away and the beach was just a short distance. We enjoyed having the convenience of the retaurants and shops of Gulfplace within walking distance!! Sherry, the owner, was so nice and helpful in every way. Hopefully, we will be returning in August to celebrate our 43rd anniversary.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many different places in Destin over the years. I can say that this beautiful townhouse is the perfect place to vacation. The townhouse looks exactly like the pictures. There are always four things I look for in a beach rental: Tennis Courts, Nice Pool, easy ocean access and Pet Friendly. Tennis courts and pool are literally steps from the door. Both the tennis courts and the pool area are super nice. The beach is about a four minute easy walk across the street. Pet friendly is a big benefit. My two dogs enjoyed their walks on the many trails that circle the Gulf Place property.

Sherry was great to work with and replied promptly during the booking process. I look forward to going back next year.

Nice Area

  • 5 of 5

Very nice area to stay in. If your looking to spend a week at the beach this is the place. Reasonably priced and close to Destin without the crowdedness. Sherry "the owner" is a great person to deal with and always responds quickly to any question you may have. I highly recommend this place. Nice neighbors and residents as well. Got to meet several while on my stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, we loved having you stay with us and my neighbors said they enjoyed meeting you.. We love Gulf Place with the bike shop, coffee cafe, shops and so much more within steps of the town home. Of course let's not leave out the beautiful pool right out the back door and wonderful beach.. Just perfect place. I look forward to having you guys return real soon, I would recommend Oct. and Nov. my favorite months.. Please come back real soon..
