About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Abacos/Santa Rosa Beach/Gulfview Luxury Townhouse Condo-3 BR/3BA/pool, right on 30A, & 393- DIRECTLY across from Ed Walline Public Beach Access

Most visitors to our area agree that the South Walton County Scenic Highway 30-A area is the perfect vacation destination - white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, world class retail and outlet store shopping, challenging golf courses, funky art galleries, music venues, fishing, free parks and beaches, water parks, and many restaurants to suit all budgets and palates. We are so proud that Yahoo Travel ranked Santa Rosa Beach as one of the Top 10 Best Beach Destinations 2011.... in the world!! We are ranked with Maui, Bali, New Zealand and others around the world. 2013 Florida Travel & Life recently announced that 30A was the 'Pearl of the Panhandle' with southern hospitality in a trendy setting.

Pampering starts on the the ground floor of Abacos with a professional nail salon, Garage Growler, Cafe Bolo (coffee & Mexican food), a small beach/gift shop to meet some of your daily wants & needs. Very close to the west are the trendy restaurants, pizza, coffee house, ice cream parlor, large grassy area for games, during the summer they have concerts here every Sunday night, shopping, boutiques, & galleries.

KB is a quiet (no street noise) two-story condominium with an interior stairwell and outside entrance doors and balconies on both floors. We have a lot of natural light with 5 sliding doors. The lower level contains three (3) smartly furnished bedrooms (King, Queen and Twins) and two bathrooms (master and hall). No need to drag suitcases up & down stairs, take building elevator to 2nd floor. The upper level (3rd floor and main entrance with a key pad) features stone tile floors, a spacious living area, a guest bathroom, separate dining room, a magnificent kitchen with granite counters, a breakfast bar and stainless appliances. We furnished KB to be an elegant but comfortable retreat from home.

KB has beautiful granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms. Cable TV/DVD is provided in every bedroom and the living room has a 42' flat screen.. FREE WIRELESS HIGH SPEED INTERNET service is also provided. There is parking for your car with overflow parking available. Before you arrive you will receive your own number for the key pad on the 3rd floor. No keys to lose! This number is changed with each new guest. An elevator and luggage cart is available for your use. Our condo is directly across the street from a public beach access complete with picnic area, lookout tower, restrooms and outdoor shower.

Why not vacation in a spacious condominium rather than a hotel room or studio? We rent out unit without any linen charges. Just add $180 for cleaning & $70 to cover our damages waiver/registration fee and 12% sales tax for the State of Florida. That's it! A local person will be available should you need assistance.

My wife and I are proud of our beach getaway. KB is new, clean, luxurious and comfortable and so convenient to the beach, shopping, golf, deep sea fishing and all the other things that you escape to the beach to enjoy. We will be happy to have you as our guest.

As far as shopping goes, KB is only 5 miles west of the quaint shops at Seaside (where the movie Truman Story was filmed) and Watercolor. We are 6 miles east of Sandestin, the large Silver Sands outlet mall and the new world class Grand Boulevard shopping district. Pier Park shopping mall is 20 miles to the east. Destin Commons upscale shopping is 15 miles to the west. Needless to say, there are hundreds of other shopping opportunities-from funky artist shops to the finest clothing and home furnishings stores. You will have a tough time covering all the bases, but have fun trying.

Check out the 30-A app & download it to your I-phone or check out the web site. It has great information on events, music venues, dining and who was recently spotted in the area.

We are happy to give you names of nearby bike rentals and beach chair rentals if you are interested.

About Carey Jury

We have lived in Des Moines, Iowa most of our lives. Years ago a job transfer took us to Sydney, Australia where we lived on the harbour in a condo and spent many weekends at the beach. We could've stayed there forever but it was so far away from family. We have two children, five wonderful grandchildren. We are retired. We love the beach, walking, biking, good restaurants, art, music and shopping. Well, at least Ann enjoys the shopping. We have been spending part of our winters in Florida for the last four years and discovered the Santa Rosa Beach a few years ago. We agree with Yahoo Travel, this is one of the Top 10 Best Beach Destinations in the world!

Carey Jury purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carey Jury chose South Walton

Santa Rosa Beach is relaxed & secluded beach get-away with no high rise condos. Having lived in other parts of the world and traveled

extensively outside of the U.S. we found the Santa Rosa Beach area to be one of the most spectacular in the world. The clear emerald colored water and the pure white sand is simply unsurpassed. The area is quiet yet bustling with world class restaurants, quaint art shops and many activities during the day or night. We can do as much as we want or just spend the day relaxing with the spectacular Gulf views. We just love this location, we are close to everything we've ever dreamed about! If you like beautiful emerald water, beautiful white sand, a nice spacious condo with a view, good food, quiet (no street noise), laid back atmosphere, golf, fishing, art and music. This is for you........and me!

What makes this condo unique

We love sipping coffee or wine at the kitchen table ejoying views of the Gulf water. We enjoy going just a few steps to the beach to watch the dolphins, take in the sunset and walking as the waves splash at our feet. Also, a few steps away is the 20 mile walking/biking path. In addition, we can go to the back side of our property, sit on 1 of three decks that overlook a nicely appointed pool that we often have to ourselves.

The pool is very private, quiet, surrounded by

palm trees and lush vegetation. The pool also has restrooms and an outdoor shower. Directly

across the street we enjoy walking over to Gulf

Place for coffee, cinnamon rolls or ice cream at Sunrise Coffee with seating on the patio and views

of the Gulf. La Playa, (in place of Smiling Fish Cafe) a restaurant with music and outdoor seating. Also located at Gulf Place, within a short walk is Pizza By the Sea, The Perfect Pig, & The Preachers Kitchen & Sunrise Coffee. After coffee, ice cream, BBQ, hamburgers, grouper, or pizza, shop the funky art shacks, retail women's shops, bike/kayak rental shop, pharmacy or play soccer in the green open space, you don't even have to use your car! A convenience store/gas station is an easy 1/2 mile walk. The outdoor common area of our condo has great lighting for your added security. We believe it has it GREAT location! ❌❌❌ CONTACT CAREY❌❌❌


Guestbook comments from the owner

Spent a week at Abacos #308, and it was absolutely the nicest condo we have ever rented. We will definitely be back! The furnishings, décor, and quality in this unit were exceptional. Although, we mostly ate at local restaurants, the kitchen was well-stocked, so any cook would be pleased. We enjoyed our time at the pool, but spent most of our time at the beach, which was just a quick walk across the street. As usual, the water was crystal clear and the sand was like sugar. Wonderful! Gulf Place is next door, and it was an easy walk for morning coffee at Miss Lucille's. While we were there, a new little bistro opened on the first floor of Abacos, named Café Bolo. Lastly, the fact that I never had to carry keys to the beach was very convenient. I liked being able to just use a keypad to unlock the door. I really cannot say anything negative at all about our stay there. It was wonderful and relaxing, and I can't wait to go back!

Our week long family vacation was excellent, thanks to staying at VRBO 131727 in Santa Rosa Beach. We absolutely loved it! It was very clean and quiet. The owner takes excellent care of his condo and it shows. This is the cleanest and best stocked rental that we have ever experienced while using VRBO.

The condo has a great location on 30-A with easy access to the beach across the street. The condo overlooks the pool and has a great view of the Gulf! It is a beautiful unit in a great area with less crowds, in a more quaint setting than up in Destin but still only a short drive to the outlet malls, Bass Pro etc. The condo is just a few steps from the beach, great restaurants, bike path and music! Everything we wanted was close by. We were very happy with everything. We'd highly recommend this condo and hope to make it a yearly trip! Thank you to the Jury's for sharing your condo! We will be back!

This wonderful condo helped make our Florida vacation perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This clean, comfortable, and beautifully appointed condo is located right across the street from public beach access and great local shops, restaurants and bars. We loved the small-town, friendly area and could walk to many places, with others being just a short drive away. We felt at home in the condo and loved that we could cook if we wanted, do laundry, make coffee, etc. We were with another couple and the accommodations were excellent with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, plus a half bath on the main floor. The 3 balconies overlook a super nice swimming pool that we often had to ourselves. We enjoyed going for a dip after a day at the beach. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Jury, for sharing your beautiful condo!

A Winner! Book this Condo for your next trip to Santa Rosa Beach...a relaxed educator from Spring B

  • 5 of 5

We recommend this beautiful condo! It was clean, nicely decorated and in a prime location for a quick walk to the beach, a meal at a nearby restaurant (even a couple on the first floor of the unit). The owner was kind and friendly, quickly responding to questions and providing the needed information and more. Thank you Mr. Jury. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. There are a number of delicious restaurants within walking and close driving distance. We enjoyed biking along Country Road 30A, taking a quick swim in the warm pool. Parking is well-lighted and safe. The keyless entry made the visit even more worrying about who had the keys, or if they might get lost. Hope you enjoy this condo as much as we did!

Love this condo!

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to join my daughter and her family for a week at this condo. It was wonderful. The unit is beautifully decorated and very well supplied. It is very spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room to be together or get away from each other for awhile. The kitchen has everything you need for a dinner in, which we did a couple nights. I recommend fresh fish and seafood at nearby Shrimpers. We also enjoyed some of the nearby restaurants. All were good. Most importantly (for me), the beautiful, long, white, soft-sand beach was a very easy walk across the street. The water was awesome, beautiful colors and shallow enough to walk out a long way. While the beach always had people on it, it was never too crowded and this was Spring Break week. There is plenty of beach space for everyone. We bought a $10.00 beach chair and extra large beach towels at local stores. When we weren't at the beach, we enjoyed the condo pool with perfect water temperature and never crowded. There is plenty to do within walking distance and even more activities if you want to drive a bit. I would recommend this property for anyone. I hope I am able to rent it again in the future. I can't say enough about the accommodations and amenities. Thank you for sharing your awesome property!

* Beautiful condo

* 3 bedrooms perfect for a family of 5 plus grandma

* felt like home...everyone played, relaxed and slept well

* perfect access to beach...don't need to pay extra for beach front condos

* beach access is the best we've seen, nice hose for rinsing unlike other beach access

* 40 minutes to Andrews State park(pontoon rental) and about 30min to Destin (a bit of drive to restaurants but we like the low crowd here)

* had pretty much the whole swimming pool to ourselves

* one small complaint is I really needed the internet but the router blocked my browser from going anywhere on my laptop....ended using up all my minutes (and some) from my plan....for me this was extremely important as I trade...was bumped out but the condo is still a five....

* the kids keep saying this was the best vacation ever

Owner's Response: Sophea and family, Thank you for taking the time to review our property and thank you for the kind review. We're sorry about the wireless problems. My wife and I are at the condo and just commented yesterday that the wireless seemed to be working better than ever. However we are using iPads and obviously the system could not support your needs. We hope you come to visit again.
