Awesome House for a Great Rate, Utopian Village!

Bedrooms 6
Space 2,800 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Location: Seagrove Beach West, one mile East of Seaside, Florida panhandle, address: 3319 East CR 30A, Seagrove beach, Fl. 32459

Accommodations: Three story house, 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, (sleeps 18)

This gorgeous, non-smoking, three-story, 2800 square foot home has six spacious bedrooms and four baths. Five of the bedrooms have king-size beds and one bedroom has two bunkbeds with full mattresses. This home has a private pool.

There are clear views of the Gulf of Mexico from the front balconies and the beach access walkway is directly across the street (30A). The alluring white sandy beaches and turquoise water lend to plenty of activities to keep the family entertained. In the evenings, what a treat to unwind with the view of breathtaking sunsets to end your day.

There is also a private, gated pool for Utopian Village guests only. The home is fully-equipped and we're sure you'll be back year after year once you have stayed in this dream vacation retreat! It has recently been completely redecorated inside and you will know you are there when you see the newly painted exterior blue trim!

As mentioned, the interior has had hands-on decorating to reflect a very beachy and colorful decor. New bedspreads, pictures, lamps, rugs, couches and colorful balcony wooden chairs complete the relaxation of the ocean sound that's only 200 feet down the private walk to the beach.

To complete the comfort on the second level which is where everyone meets and hang's out, new couches make it very comfortable to relax, watch tv or just listen to cds or watch your favorite dvd. We might add the second floor is where the kitchen is with a large eating table to allow everyone to enjoy hanging out.

Your stay is very important to the extent that when you leave to go back to your home, you can also feel that you've enjoyed yourselves so that you will schedule to come back the same time next year.

Why George chose Seagrove Beach

After looking at several beach houses the location kept me coming back to Utopian.

It's the perfect mix for activities & relaxation.

What makes this house unique

It's a short walk to the beach. A nice bike ride to Seaside for the activities, food & shopping.

Just the perfect location.

House was fine. Pool and brick around pool needs a lot of work

  • 3 of 5

Our whole family stayed the week of July 8-15, 2017. This was our second time staying in this house. When George owned the property, the house and pool were really nice. The house itself was nice. As for the pool, that's another story. We had 10 adults and 7 kids. We went back to Utopian Village because of how nice the pool was back in 2015. When we arrived, the pool was disgusting. Green to the point where you couldn't see bottom of the pool. Not taken care of at all. When you have seven kids excited to swim and start the vacation and see the pool in this bad of shape, it doesn't set the tone real well for the vacation. I immediately called Sterling resorts on Saturday and told them the issue. Someone came on Monday late afternoon. The guy that was Justin was completely overwhelmed with how the pool looked and apologized. Not his fault. Justin didn't know where to start. I've worked on pools, open/closed pools, and gave him some areas where he could at least get the water cleared up. I told him the water was below the skimmer, pump was sucking air, and jet returns weren't working. He asked me what needed to happen. I told Justin I put water in the pool, cleaned the pump filter since it was completely clogged, backwashed, and rinsed the pool lines. Whoever did maintenance on the pool the last time set the lever that closed off the skimmer. I asked Justin to leave me some shock for the pool. I shocked it Monday evening and pool cleared up a little for Tuesday, enough for kids to swim. Tuesday evening, Justin did come and sweep out the pool. By Wednesday morning, green again. So out of seven days, kids used the pool ONE day. On Wednesday, Justin came back because we had another issue with the lights which wasn't a big deal but he asked about the pool. He looked at it and was completely disgusted with how green it was and apologized again. When we left on Saturday, I called Sterling Resorts (Property Management Company) and talked to Diane Anth and told her about the pool. She took all my info and said that she would give it to the office manager and her boss. Diane told me I would get a phone call on a Sunday. Well, here it is July 27 and haven't heard a word from Sterling Resorts 30a. If the owner of this property would like to get in touch with me, contact the property management company that you pay to take care of your property. They have my contact info. I'd like to talk to you. I do hope they have fixed pool for future tenants.

Fox Family Fun in Florida

  • 4 of 5

There were small glitches upon arrival that were quickly handled (maintenance guys arrived promptly, were very courteous, and very efficient). Maintenance of the pool was lacking (remained cloudy most of the week). Glad to hear there are upgrades forthcoming. Had a great week with a great time had by all! Hopeful for next year after many years in this house!

Best fall break ever!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, convenient to the beach! Our party consisted of 8 adults and 4 children, there was plenty of room for everyone, yet we each had privacy. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, plenty of linens and towels, kitchen well supplied. Utopian Village is definitely on our list of places to stay again! Thanks for your hospitality, George, and we had a wonderful vacation in your beautiful rental!

Utopian Village is a GREAT place to stay!! It's location is convenient to Seaside and Seagrove and, of course, THE BEACH! 10 adults and three children had plenty of room! The house was clean and comfortable.....the beds have wonderful mattresses! And, what a fun room upstairs for the kids!! We highly recommend this property for any family!! It is, also, very reasonably priced!!

Perfect location!! Very Accommodating!!

  • 5 of 5

First off, George (owner) was great. We had a special request and he was quick to agree and followed through. We were close to the happening areas but not in the middle of it all, so it was perfect. And the beach was just short walk and not crowded. The house was very comfortable and had everything you needed, even spices!!! We will certainly come back but for a longer next time.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Had a very memorable time at Santa Roda beach over the holiday weekend. My family and I really did enjoy the house with the exception of all the dust on blinds and fans. When we turned fan in the living room, dust went everywhere while the kids were eating. A deep clean every few months would be great.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that your stay will leave you with such great memories, that is our #1 goal. Our staff & myself work very hard to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction, while also keeping it affordable. Sorry about the dust, unfortunately your stay was the last flip of the summer & it's impossible to do a deep clean on flip weeks. Please also keep in mind that we did accommodate the early check in that you requested. The deep clean was scheduled to begin after your check out. Thanks again & we look forward to seeing you again next year.
