About the property

4 BR, 3 BA, Sleeps 8-10

**NOTE to wedding couples & attendees: We're located within walking distance to both the Villa Rosa House & A Highland House Bed & Breakfast.

'My Sunshine' has been popular to families and friends alike. We have the been the only owners and take a lot of pride in spending time and effor to keep it updated, modern and comfortable. We love to host return renters that make their annual vacation memories here. The house is set up to make your stay relaxing and comfortable as possible. The house is near the front of the neighborhood, a few steps from the pool, and a few more steps to the beach. The cottage style community of Old Florida Village on 30-A is beautifully landscaped with two pools, lighted streets and white picket fences.

Where's the Beach?: There is so much to do so close by. Down the street of 30-A is Gulf Place which has dining, shopping and spa options. Swimming, bike rental, horseback riding, golf are all within minutes. 30-A has a wonderful wide path to walk/run/ride bikes. Seaside and WaterColor are 6 miles down the road. Destin is a 10 minute drive and is great for shopping, movies, nightlife, and kid’s activities. And a brand new Publix grocery store is 5 minutes away so you spend less time at the store and more time on the sand.

We get asked a lot, how far is the beach? For our family with two small kids it takes approx 8 minutes to walk from the neighborhood to the beach. The closest beach access we recommend is outside the neighborhood, across the street to the left, behind Goatfeathers. It has picnic tables, restrooms and lifeguards during the summer season. If you want to swim closer to home, one of the two community pools is right in front of the house! We provide beach towels and beach toys!

Indoor time: If you chose to spend some time indoors, the well designed living room with a big oversized sectional couch is perfect for lounging around. A brand new flat screen TV with full cable package and surround sound means you don't have to compromise entertainment, even on vacation. Outdoor speakers allow you to set the mood for an evening outdoor cocktail party on one of the three decks. Hardwood floors throughout the family and living room, tile in the kitchen and carpet in the bedrooms keep 'My Sunshine' comfortable and casual.

A well appointed kitchen includes stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, including a large breakfast bar. Kitchen conveniences include microwave, ice maker, dishwasher, toaster and coffee maker/coffee grinder. Coffee and teas are available for you each morning, one less thing you need to worry about at 'My Sunshine'. And if outdoor cooking is more desirable, a gas grill is at your disposal.

All second floor bedrooms have large TV's with cable.

Free WIFI is available.

And finally, another great convenience, a keyless lock on the door. You get your own code for your stay. No more worrying about picking up keys at a rental office or losing them!

If this description hasn't answered your questions, email or call. We look forward to helping you plan a trip to remember.

About Robbie or Nita

After the loss of our condo in Gulf Shores to Hurricane Ivan, we have been looking for the perfect place to find our beach house. We found it in Old Florida Village and 'My Sunshine' . We love the 30-A area and the quiet privacy of the Old Florida Village. With the pool so close and the beach only a short walk, we have found the Sunshine of our life.

Robbie or Nita purchased this house in 2013

Why Robbie or Nita chose Santa Rosa Beach

Quiet, safe for kids and pool is directly across from the house.

Great place for families!

  • 5 of 5

My Sunshine is great for families. It is well stocked and comfortable. We all loved the two front porches and the back deck, especially at night and in the morning with a nice cup of coffee. It was great being directly across from the pool, so convenient with kids and running back and forth to the house. The beach is a short walk away, and with a our youngest being 5, it was an easy walk. We utilized the wagon in the back of the house to haul the beach gear. Another great feature is the grill, our best meals were the ones we cooked with local fresh seafood. We took evening walks in the the neighborhood and the kids rode scooters and skate boards out front after the beach. We would stay again.

I Love this property and the neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many vrbo/home away homes over the years and this was one of my absolute favorites. Immediately From the booking and all the way through our departing Robbie, the owner, was there to help answer any questions and give suggestions on things to see and places to eat. The house was very clean, well equipped with items for the kitchen, pool and beach. I love this neighborhood with the brick streets, style of homes and my favorite the front porch with a lamp and comfortable seating to sit have a drink, chat with family and watch as the neighborhood cats and raccoons come to eat from the food bowl on the porch. The beach was close, with beautiful sand, blue waters, and the near by air force planes flying over head waving to all the beach goers. The pool right across from the house was also nice so that you can easily walk over and refill your beverage and grad a snack. One of the big positives of this house is its close proximity to Destin and Sea Side. It was nice to be away from all the craziness of both of the cities but close enough to hop in the car and enjoy all that they have to offer. You can't go wrong renting this house I can't think of one thing to complain about.

We want to thank you for such a great stay. We thoroughly enjoyed everything! Weather was great with it being in the mid to upper 70s during our Thanksgiving stay. House was fully stocked up. Only issue was the battery in the smoke detector went out and was beeping. So, we replaced it. No biggie.

Thank you again for your hospitality.

We look forward to choosing your home again in the future!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving in "My Sunshine". And..a big thank you for changing the smoke detector battery. We were staying in a friends house not long ago and had to change theirs. I hope ours was easier to change! I guess we should have changed ours at that time too. Thanks again for the nice review. Nita and Robbie
