Santa Rosa Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 12)

What a great neighborhood this house is located in! Small, Gated and friendly--Sunrise Beach is close to all kinds of activities including the beach. It’s located south of 30A just east of 393---You'll love it! This custom designed home is easy to live in--with many special features---special use of colors in each room and lots of fun and funky art throughout.

The kitchen is very well equipped with 'gourmet features'. The living area with 10 Ft ceiling is on the second floor. A granite bar, where you can hang out while watching the cook, separates the kitchen and the living-dining area--which opens to the 15x12 screened porch, almost doubling the living space. A Gas Grill is located on the angled deck. Both porch and deck provide a view of the Gulf.

There is a laundry room on the first floor. Walk out the back door to enjoy the 15x10 private pool when not sunning on the beach. There is a spacious deck surrounding the pool-- with tables and lounges and chairs by the pool.

Wonderful property for our growing family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house in June 2015 for two weeks with our extended family (consisting of 6 adults, 3 teens, & one infant). It couldn't have been more perfect. It's hard to be on the beach with a baby so the private pool was a complete saving grace. It was a nice walk to visit friends who were staying at Gulf Place. We loved the decor (as we live in Cincinnati and we are guessing the the owners do too), the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was great for entertaining a large family. We are hoping to stay again in 2016!

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just spent two weeks at Meritage and hated to leave. The house is well laid out allowing for multiple families to stay and have their privacy. Well stocked kitchen. Short walk to beautiful beach. Great pool and screen porch. My only complaint is that the house is close to 30A and the traffic sounds. But other than that Meritage is a small piece of paradise, just hated to leave.

Fabulous! This is a great family home. Clean, beautiful and well kept. The beach is a short walk from the house. And the private pool was wonderful. We had so much fun, we hated to leave. We will definitely be back next year!

Meritage is a wonderful vacation home. The floor plan is very convenient and there is plenty of room for everyone to "spread out." The kitchen is a cook's dream, with a huge refrigerator, gas stove, and lot of pots for your crab legs! Nice pool, short walk to the beach, Miss Lucille's just down the road for yummy ice cream......who could ask for more? One additional feature you don't find everywhere is the screened porch. It's perfect for morning coffee and review writing! Our family hopes to make this an annual retreat.

The listing info and pics are very accurate.
