San Remo is an intimate 4 story, 32 unit, secure/gated resort property located directly on the Gulf of Mexico ~ no high rises, traffic, or congestion ~ yet easily accessible to Destin, Sandestin, Panama City Beach, etc. Enjoy all the scenery and serenity of the entire 30A area, including Seaside, Grayton Beach, Water Color, etc.

This luxury facility also features an extra large pool, hot tub spa, and a fitness center for your use. The grounds are well landscaped and neatly trimmed with plenty of secure parking.

If you have stayed in the Destin or Panama City area and grown tired of the high rises, traffic jams, and overcrowded beaches, you need to try the '30A' area. San Remo is close to everything, but far from the crowds!

The area has been the subject of glowing reviews from many top travel publications.

USA Today travel has this to say....

"For a quiet coastal escape on the Florida Panhandle, it doesn't get much better than Santa Rosa Beach. Located along Northwest Florida's famous Emerald Coast, Santa Rosa Beach comprises a collection of luxury beach homes, excellent restaurants and the Gulf Place artist colony. It also serves as the gateway for exploring Eden Gardens State Park and Point Washington State Forest."

BEST rental condo, and the BEST BEACH in the USA!

The sand is soft and white. If you are a shell hunter, you will be disappointed, but you can walk the beach in your bare feet without needing sandals to avoid being cut. Also, the summer sun is hot but the white sand reflects most of the heat. If your other beach vacations have been on the Atlantic side of Florida, or in Georgia or the Carolinas, you are in for a real treat! No gray gravel beaches or murky water here.

WHAT IS 30A?

'LIFE SHINES on 30A', a 20-mile scenic shore tucked quietly between Destin and Panama City Beach and speckled with artsy villages, rare coastal dune lakes, upscale resorts, funky beach bars, many world-class restaurants and 25,000 acres of protected habitats, 'Scenic 30A' is also home to the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Connecting all the beach communities on the 30A corridor is a 20+ mile bike path, the 'Timpoochee Trail', that passes through protected wetlands, state parks, nature trails and coastal dune lakes that are unique to this area. Whether you are biking, jogging, or walking a stroller, it's a quiet, peaceful way to see the '30A' area at your own pace.

If you choose to take a break from the sugar-white sandy beaches and clear water, you are just a short drive from a wide variety of great local restaurants and shopping. Of course, the '30A' area has a myriad of excellent restaurants like Stinky's Fish Camp, Cafe Tango, 'V' - Seagrove Beach, Cafe 30A, Local Catch, and everyone's favorite, The Red Bar, all within a 10 minute drive. Enjoy the beach and the scenery - forget the traffic!

Challenging golf awaits at nearby Santa Rosa Country Club, and the best courses in Destin are within 15-20 minutes.

Beyond the serenity of the '30A' area, it is only a 10-15 minute drive to Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin, which offers quaint shops, numerous restaurants, live open air concerts, etc, .... also, plenty of activities for children. Even closer is the Grand Boulevard area, with top quality national restaurants such as Mitchell's Fish Market, Tommy Bahama's, PF Changs, and Flemings Steak House.

About Tom Meyer, Owner

Our family pic from 2016... Now there are 19 of us! We all love San Remo from the grandparents to the grandchildren... Our entire family lives in southern Ohio and the '30A' area is like our second home.

Tom Meyer, Owner purchased this Condo in 2007

Why Tom Meyer, Owner chose Santa Rosa Beach

San Remo is located on scenic Highway 30A, which runs through various towns on the beach between Destin and Panama City Beach. We prefer this area since there are no high-rises, crowds, or traffic jams. ( I consider 2 cars waiting at a stop sign as heavy traffic.) San Remo has 32 units, which is large enough to have a great pool, spa, and workout area, but small enough to maintain the peaceful feeling of this entire area.

What makes this Condo unique

Great View! Great Beach! Great Location! Huge Balcony! Professionally decorated! Well equipped kitchen. The '30A' area has the best to offer in terms of the beach, scenery, and great restaurants of all types. San Remo has a complete complement of facilities without the crowds of Destin area properties. The view from the balcony is breathtaking! (Check out the Guest reviews!) Our unit has the highest quality interior and furnishings, professionally decorated in a 'coastal' theme. The kitchen and baths have been fully customized and upgraded from the standard unit.

                                                                      Sara R.

                                                                      My parents, 2 daughters and myself spent the week at the San Remo for Spring Break 2018. This was my parents 2nd trip back to the San Remo, different condo. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked for us to cook when we wanted. The location near Gulf Shores is perfect for walking down and enjoying coffee, a drink or a great meal at several different restaurants (the Perfect Pig was a favorite). The view is still beautiful, but the large new property built along the front left portion of the beach, does obscure the view quite a bit in comparison to the original view pictures. Pool was heated perfectly and my kiddos loved swimming day and night. Was a little disappointed with the Managing Group - we were there for 6 days (as scheduled) and each bath was only equipped with 1 tp roll in addition to the small amount that was there when we checked in. When we inquired to please have additional supplied, was told that we needed to buy our own tp after what they supplied had run out. Was a trip to the store that we didn't really need to or want to take on our remaining 1.5 days, nonetheless was a necessity so ran out and bought it ourselves. A small inconvenience, however, felt worth noting. Love this stretch of 30A!

                                                                      San Remo #307 is a great place to spend your vacation. It was very clean and well-equipped,.

                                                                      Tom M.TN

No surprises. The owner provided lots of extra info in advance so we could enjoy our stay from the very beginning. We will be back!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

You can walk to rent bikes, to the ice cream shop or even pick up lunch or dinner. Condo had everything we needed and the beach is so close and just beautiful!! Owner was very gracious to send detailed emails with anything we would need to know about our stay. I know we will be back again!

As you know, I don't solicit these comments but it is always appreciated, especially since it lets me know you and your family had a great getaway. You are always welcome to return. I hope you have the chance soon!

                                                                      FANTASTIC BEACH RENTAL

                                                                      Margaret C.

                                                                      My family of 5 stayed in this condo for a week this July and it was wonderful. The condo is lovely. It is well maintained, clean, easy to live in. The kitchen had everything we could think to use. We didn't want for anything. The complex is relatively small - maybe 30 units? So, neither the pool nor the beach were ever crowded. The beach was probably 100 yards away and included beach umbrellas and chairs - SO CONVENIENT.

                                                                      The only drawback of the condo is that there is a big house being built in front of the complex that may have reduced the view from the balcony a little. That said - you still get a GREAT view of the beach. (This is not a "beach view" that you have to stand at just the right angle and lean forward to see... this is a sit in your chair and see a wide expanse of waves kind of view. I just think it probably used to be even better.)

                                                                      Tom was a great owner to work with. He sent a very informative email before we arrived. And was very responsive when I had a question mid-week. The rental company was great too.

                                                                      I am pretty sure we'll visit San Remo 307 again. It was WONDERFUL!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thanks for the great review and the kind words. We do our best to have everything you could need and to send out enough information in advance so your stay can be as pleasant and relaxing as possible. As you noted, the view is still great even though it used to be twice as nice. The beach is the BEST and the pool and hot tub at San Remo provide plenty of relaxing options.

                                                                      We hope you can make it back again next year!

Tom was awesome to work with, as was the rental company and association. Condo was in perfect condition. As a frequent traveler, I've learned to look at the pics really closely and hope for the best. This condo exceeded expectations. Could not have been better. A girlfriend joined me the second weekend for a couple days, and we had the best time. Clean, well maintained, good kitchen "gear", Did I say Clean?

                                                                      Owner's Response:

Coming from an experienced traveller like you, it means a lot and we really appreciate it! It was a pleasure to work with you and I hope we can accommodate your schedule when you return again to 30A!

                                                                      Perfect Labor Day Weekend!

                                                                      Our group could not have been more pleased with San Remo 307. Tom was excellent to work with before and during our trip. The condo is well appointed, extremely clean and in great condition. It was also so much more spacious than we expected! The views from the unit are spectacular and it is great to have a place to relax outside out of the sun. Several times each day we saw dolphins swimming by. Some mornings we were lucky enough to see them jumping and breaching! The beach service was an excellent perk to the rental and really negated the need for a canopy or blanket. We also rented a paddleboard from the agent on the beach and it was so fun to get out on the ocean to test our balance and bravery. We saw rays, jellyfish, and schools of large and small fish. It was so convenient to have a pool on site as well. It was never crowded and fun to take a dip after the beach each day. The shops and restaurants along 30a are so unique and special and San Remo is within walking distance of some gems. We enjoyed walking to coffee at Sunrise Coffee Co. and dinners at Local Catch and The Perfect Pig. We drove to dinner in Seagrove one night and highly recommend Cafe 30A for a luxurious meal. I could not get enough grouper or snapper!

                                                                      We have been to the gulf countless times, but after visiting San Remo and Santa Rosa Beach, I will never return to the crowded beaches and high rises of other areas.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thanks for your gracious comments! I'm glad your first visit to the 30A area convinced you to make it your permanent vacation destination. We love it and I have received the same types of comments from many who had only been to Destin or Panama City. We seldom travel more than 10 miles from San Remo now and we really value the slower pace and lack of traffic.

                                                                      I hope you can return soon! Thanks again.
