Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

Leave the hustle and bustle of the big city behind and discover the simple pleasures and natural treasures of the Emerald Coast. Sleeping 12 comfortably, Almost Heaven is a 4,300 square foot home providing all the amenities and luxuries for the perfect vacation. Whether large families, multiple families or reunions, there is really nothing this exquisitely designed and beautifully furnished vacation getaway cannot provide. Included in Almost Heaven’s 4-suite accommodations, there are two master suites, one on the first floor and one on the third floor, opening onto covered private decks where you greet the morning sunrise or wind down after a long day at the beach.

Entering Almost Heaven is a beautiful foyer and the first floor queen master bedroom with private bath and covered deck area. Relax on the back deck in the circular jetted pool.

You may take the elevator or walk up the open staircase to the elegant second floor main living area with Gulf views. The open gathering space encompasses living, dining and kitchen areas. In the living room there is ample seating including a queen sleeper sofa and a large flat screen TV mounted over a gas fireplace that is within sight from the adjacent dining room with table seating for 10. The kitchen is equipped for the gourmet, including a 5-burner gas cook-top, stainless appliances and endless granite counter tops. There’s additional seating for 3 at the long breakfast bar. A full bath with glass-enclosed shower and laundry room with full-size stackable washer and dryer complete this level.

The third floor offers the king master suite furnished with a desk area and flat screen TV mounted over the gas fireplace, with a wall of gulf-facing windows allowing natural light. It opens onto a gulf-view covered porch, and its luxurious bath has deep soaking tub, large shower with dual heads, private water closet and dual granite vanity. On the other side of the third floor is the queen guest bedroom with treetop views, private bath with travertine shower and single vanity. The bunk room has two sets of twin bunks, partial gulf views, and private bath with combination tub/shower and double vanity.

Outdoors, enjoy relaxing on porches and balconies, grilling on the deck or soaking in the spa (heated for a fee). Parking is easy, with 2-car garage and 2-car driveway. And a leisurely boardwalk stroll puts you on the sand in 2 minutes. Elevator access is available for no additional fee. Lastly, two complimentary adult bikes are provided year round and free beach chair service (seasonal) with your stay!

Lined with artsy villages, coastal lakes, upscale resorts, eclectic beach bars, world-class restaurants and 25,000 acres of protected habitats, Florida's Scenic Highway 30A has something for everyone and is home to the world's most beautiful white sand beaches.

The Villages of 30-A Include: Dune Allen - Santa Rosa Beach - Blue Mountain Beach - Grayton Beach – WaterColor - Seaside – Seagrove – Watersound - Alys Beach – Seacrest - Rosemary Beach - Inlet Beach

Just west of Dune Allen Beach, in Sandestin off Hwy 98, is the new Boulevard 10 Carmike theatre featuring (9) state-of-the-art screens and (1) over age 21 Ovation Dining Club. The Ovation Dining Club offers moviegoers a more intimate, sophisticated experience, with lush leather seating, swing around tables, a wall-to-wall movie screen with a wide selection of premium beers, wine and a full-service restaurant experience. An easy drive to the east is Panama City’s Pier Park, a mega outdoor shopping mall consisting of over a million square feet of specialty shops, retailers, and restaurants - plus the 16-cinema Grand Theatre.

Reviewer Comments:

the house was great and really comfortable. My only criticism is that is a pet rental, and you cannot bring your pet to the beach... this should be clearly specified upfront, so people can make a decision. I only found out after researching pet friendly beaches in the area.

We were over the moon happy with this vacation rental! Space was perfect (more than enough for us), every room exceeded the expectations we had based on the website. The location was phenomenal - the walk to the beach, the views from the balcony, the local food. Can't wait to go back!

We had a wonderful time at Almost Heaven! We had 9 adults who had gathered for a family wedding at nearby Eden Gardens. The house was so spacious, and we loved having lots of room to gather, eat at the dining table, hang out on the decks, and we especially appreciated all the luxurious bathrooms. It was great to be able to walk down the boardwalk to the beach, and we loved the ocean views. Our 2 doggies loved the house, too. The elevator was a huge help with my elderly parents! I would highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone coming to this part of Florida, especially if you have a large group.

Owner's Response: Dear M,Thank you so much for taking the time to post your kind review.Almost Heaven is a wonderful property for family to visit the beach. With the great locations south of 30-A, and its own boardwalk to the beach it makes staying at the beach an easy visit. The house having two master suites it makes it a wonderful house for shared generations. We get so many wonderful comments on the convenience of having the elevator in the house. It opens up a lot of opportunities to enjoy our elderly friends and family or people like me with bad knees. We are so glad that you had the opportunity to enjoy your family’s wedding and we look forward to helping you enjoy feature anniversaries. We look forward to seeing you at the beach very soon!

Overall it was a great experience! Front office staff (Kim) was very helpful. Maintenance staff was excellent. The only unsatisfactory comment was the hot tub could not be fixed during our stay.

Owner's Response: Dear M - Thank you for taking the time to post your kind review. It is always good to hear that our guest had another great experience at Almost Heaven. We are blessed at Royal Destinations to have great properties like Almost Heaven for our guest and great staff members like Kim to work with. With the great weather you had, I am sure the the private walkway to the beach got put to great use. Being so close to the beach, as well as the great shops and restaurants, make Almost Heaven a popular repeat visit home. We are sorry that we could not get the spa fixed during your stay. The suppliers were closed over the holiday week and the pool company could not get the parts to make the repair until after the New Year. Thank you for your understanding and working with us to get the issue resolved. We are looking forward to your next visit and working with you to make it a greater experience!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with Royal Destinations at Almost Heaven. Glad you enjoyed the home and your time at the beach. This was the best time of year to get away and we hope you were able to catch a sunset in your complimentary beach chairs. Being just a hundred yards from the beach sure makes it easy and the private boardwalk leading down is a great feature especially for young families. Hope to see you again next year.
