About Ocean Reef

For over thirty-five years Ocean Reef has distinguished itself as the leading vacation rental property management company on the Emerald Coast. Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach. Steeped in a tradition of hospitality and exemplary service, we pride ourselves on providing an unmatched vacation experience.

Why Ocean Reef chose Santa Rosa Beach

Often referred to as “the town that began it all��, Santa Rosa Beach is the first established community in South Walton. Today, many of the communities that make up this majestic collection of beachfront developments are technically in Santa Rosa Beach. The most notable is Gulf Place – home to restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. Other attractions include Eden State Garden Park and the Santa Rosa Beach Golf Club. Guests seeking to spend their vacation in Santa Rosa Beach can opt for studio style condos at Gulf Place, large vacation homes with private pools near the beach or beachfront custom homes or townhomes.

Great House and Beach

  • 3 of 5

The house was a great family vacation home. The only issue we had was the constant construction and lawn maintenance in the neighborhood. Every day was very noisy outside. Not relaxing by the pool as we would have liked. I know that is something that is unpredictable. The pool and the house were fabulous. Ocean Reef responded quickly to any requests we had for minor repairs needed during the stay. I would recommend them and the area! We were to have 15 people and ended up with only 10, but still a great vacation.

A good house and great location

  • 4 of 5

After a couple of days of some issues and a lot of effort by Ocean Reef things settled down, although fixing the shower leak will be a big project. The layout of the house is very good and views outstanding.House could use some updating and sprucing up. Overall a good week.

Incredible spacious house, great access to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

After the initial issues with the gate code to the housing community upon arrival, the rental company was very accommodating. The app was helpful for finding all the details on our stay. The house was very spacious and the beach access was ideal. You definitely need a car if you are staying here though we also used Uber to get to the towns which are about a 20 minute drive. The beds were very comfortable and while the knives were all very dull the kitchen was very well stocked. I would definitely recommend this house and would rent again. We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the attention we got from the management company when they addressed our needs and concerns. You have to bring your own beach towels, but they made that clear to us. The beaches are gorgeous and the porches and pool setup are ideal!

Morning Star Review Oct 2016

  • 3 of 5

Loved pool and location. House needs maintenance. Porch balcony was so bad a child could have gone right through it. (They did come fix)

Lot of small problems like door knobs falling off. Cabinet knobs missing. Door locks need replaced. Fan on porch sounds like it is dying. Etc.

Due to location and pool would probably stay again. However, I hope they do some serious work to make the house safer and more appealing.

Owner's Response: Greg, thanks for staying with us. We are sorry to hear that the house was in need of repair. The good news is that this is the time of year that those repairs take place. I have addressed these issues with maintenance so that your next visit is much better. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the location and the pool, and that we were able to address some of the issues during your stay. We look forward to seeing you next year!

We enjoyed this home so much. No one wanted to leave. The swing on the porch was the most popular spot. Great for entertaining.
