Why Cathy Eads chose South Walton

Since our first stay here, we dreamed of owning a little piece of the paradise that is Santa Rosa Beach. The beach is never crowded. The amenities are outstanding and well managed. We can completely unwind and relax here. We have three children who also love spending time here and we're happy to offer our Gulf Place Getaway for the enjoyment of other families looking for a truly quiet, relaxing, affordable beach vacation - close to the fun & convenience of Destin & Seaside, without the crowds.

What makes this condo unique

Three great pools - two heated, with hot tubs - and tennis courts

Two private beach access points no more than 3 minutes from our entry door.

Cute boutique shops, spa and restaurants right here in the Gulf Place Development.

Great condo/Great value

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this fourth floor unit. View was awesome and beach access is steps from the condo. The bunk area with its own half bath was perfect for our teenagers. Gulf Place is a unique community and we enjoyed strolling the area each evening.

Santa Rosa Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Gulf Place Cabanas. It was our 1st visit and the place was great. Our condo had ample space and was very clean.The condo provided everything we needed and the balcony had plenty of space with a good view. We would definitely stay again. The outdoor concert on Sunday night was really enjoyed by our family.

What a little gem!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, our family of three adults and three kids ages 3,4 & 7 had a wonderful experience! I loved that the condo is a corner unit and nobody in my family complained about the 4th floor. In fact, my 3 year old looked forward to pushing the button on the elevator every time we left. The view is absolutely fantastic, and the convenience of having restaurants and shops so close made our life as parents with littles so much easier. If you come prepared with enough food and drinks there is no need in leaving a half mile radius 😊 We really look forward to staying at gulf place in the future!! My only complaint would be that the master bathroom toilet had a dirty bowl (no fault of the condo owners, I think it's a cleaning crew mishap). Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your condo, we made some memories we won't soon forget!

Our vacation in Mrs. Eads' condo was PERFECT. The view is breathtaking, the condo is so cute and comfy, and the beaches/people are wonderful. We love how quiet everything is in Santa Rosa. We plan to make her condo an annual vacation!!!

The Gulf Place development is unique, casual & fun. There are great little shops, a handful of terrific restaurants, a two acre grassy play area with concerts and other events. The beaches are breathtaking, clean and uncrowded with calm, emerald waters and sand that looks and feels like sugar! Enjoy the ocean view from this unit's extra large balcony.
