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 South Walton

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

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

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are very personable and helpful. The location is convenient to everything. We had a group running in the 30A half marathon and 5K and the house is very convenient to the start/finish line. We rode our bikes to Seaside, restaurants, etc. Santa Rosa Beach is a great beach! Crowds are slightly lower than Seaside. The house is cute and setting is very peaceful. Definitely a repeat!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. Everything was described perfect and they had everything you could possible need. We were able to meet the owners while we were there and they were the nicest most helpful people I've ever met. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. I can't wait to come back. Thank you again for allowing us to rent your beautiful home.
