About Cathy Eads
Hi I'm Cathy, a wife and mother of three children. I'll coordinate your reservation for our unit at Gulf Place Cabanas # 410. On the map below our unit is located where County Road 30-A meets S. County 393.
Cathy Eads purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Cathy Eads chose Santa Rosa Beach
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. Views from the balcony of our 4th (top) floor unit feature amazing sunsets over the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico. 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.

So many great things to say... 1) we loved the location of the property and the view from the balcony. Just a few min away from the beach including stairs that I preferred to take for a bit of exercise. We could go back and forth at no time. That was great as we did not want to leave the beach and getting snacks / drinks / whatever else was easy. There is a road (30A) but motorists are extremely respectful and we felt completely safe in allowing our 11 year old to go back and forth by herself. 2) most of what we needed was in the property - the one thing we missed quit a bit was the access to a grill - I may have missed its location, but we could not grill burgers or dinner, and that was a pity. Besides that, however, everything was there! 3) the unit was pretty functional. The bunk beds were wider and longer than I though, and that was a plus. The master bed was great. One thing I would say is that because there are no locks on the door, it is hard to have privacy. 4) in terms of cleaningness, it was as we would have expected. Except for the pull out sofa where the girls found some clipped nails... easy fix. we changed sheets and moved on. 5) the description and pictures of the property are great. This is very important as we rely on those to secure property. We loved the floors (no carpet!). 6) the beach is amazing. we have been all over the world, and we can say that the sand and color of the water was just perfect - even temperature for this time of the year. 6) the location of the beach is also perfect. very quiet place, but short driving to Seaside and Destin where you can be with the crowds if you like. 7) all in all, we would certainly come back to the apartment! thank you so much for allowing us to share your unit with us. we had a wonderful time.
Loved the location nice view of the beach
It is a great place for a couple with one or two kids very clean and nicely decorated we walked the beach every morning and had coffee at the coffee shop at the corner
We have booked it for next year
Convenient, but nothing fancy
Being on the 4th floor we had a great view of the ocean and even got to watch a sunset. The stairs were good exercise because most of the time we skipped the elevator. The short walk to the beach was quick and easy as well having 3 little girls I was worried this would be an issue. My only complaint was the smell in the unit and the carpet was coming up near the tile in the kitchen and poked our feet a few times.
Oh and due to a 5K race that was going to block us in the morning we were departing,
We packed up and left with not starting the dishwasher. oops!
Stephanie - hope you'll give us another visit next year. Our unit is undergoing a complete renovation that started right after your departure!
Great location and beautiful gulf views
Gorgeous views of the Gulf, nice patio, quiet place, bed was comfortable and unit was clean. Walk to get coffee and lunch/dinner at four good places. You MUST go to Pecan Jacks (across the street) for liquor infused ice cream and other goodies. Convenient beach access and the sunsets are hard to beat. Kitchen was a little small (if there are 4 people) but it was perfect for 2. There was not a washer/dryer in unit but it was available on the floor by the elevators. I lived in Santa Rosa Beach for 10 years and that area of 30A is my favorite.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo! Thanks for sharing your experience with future guests. Keep us in mind for the next time you need some beach time. :)
Small, nice, great location, beautiful view
Overall property is very nice and in a great location. The condo itself is a little small for our family of 5 (which includes 3 teen girls), but still doable. The beds were good and comfortable, but we did not try the sofa bed. Due to past experiences with other sofa beds we always bring an air mattress. The view from the balcony is great! We even saw some dolphins having fun in the morning. The beach was not crowded at all, which is in stark contrast to the beaches in Destin. The entire town is calm and relaxing which is just our speed. Perfect Pig and Pizza By The Sea are both great restaurants and are literally across the street. Historically, I have not been much of a beach person (I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.), but it is such a great location that I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Jeff, we are so happy to hear you were comfortable and enjoyed your stay at our condo. Thanks for sharing your experience with future guests. Keep us in mind for your next beach getaway!
Very clean, beautiful view, but most uncomfortable beds and pillows I have ever slept in
I wanted to give this more stars but having stayed for 7 nights, it was a looooong stay. My husband went for 2 massages just to make it though the trip and wanted me to leave less of a review but everything else was as described. The master bed was creaky and lumpy with a frame that kept coming undone and collapsing in the center. The pillows were like sacks of flour and weighed a ton. My 12 and 14 year old daughters slept on the fold out sofa which was well outside its lifespan. There was a ridge in the center and when you would sit up or sit on the bed, you would fall through. My 5 and 7 year olds slept in the built in bunk beds and they appeared to have the best rest out of all of us. Moral of the story, it is time for a refresh. Additionally, obviously a short term thing and not the owners fault, but the large construction with heavy equipment with safety sirens and percussion hammering starting at 7am wasn't ideal either as well as the stench of a broken sewer pipe.
That being said, the location was awesome. Kids could roam freely without too much worry, beach was close with private access and despite the fact it was a holiday weekend, the beach wasn't over crowded. Unit was clean with good AC but the handle on the metal balcony slider door had broken off and left a very sharp nub that only the adults were allowed to open. Most staple utensils were provided and we didn't feel like we were lacking. Perfect Pig has great food and of course Sunrise coffee shop had great breakfast and coffee with a smile. Recommended chair service was on point and chairs were ready to go every morning. Assuming the bedding were updated, I definitely feel the value was phenomenal for the location and would consider returning.
Tyler, we appreciate you submitting a review and sharing your experience with future guests. I am sorry you found the bedding uncomfortable, as we want every guest to be as comfortable as possible during each stay. Thanks for pointing out your concerns so we can remedy the issues right away. Glad you found the overall value of the location to be top notch.
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.
