Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at 4 Ever Hours. It was perfect for our family with lots of conversation, games and laughs. The balcony and front porch were frequent gathering places, especially when it rained. So relaxing. Thank you.

A Magical Time in this Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

My family has vacationed in Santa Rosa Beach for the last nine years (always south of 30A, always near the Gulf Heights beach access), and this might have been our best visit yet - thanks in large part to this beautiful and spacious home. Our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 children ages 4-12) has never had as much space to spread out in as we did this time. This was our first time staying in Old Florida Beach (in previous years, we have stayed on Buddy St. and on Betty St.), and we loved this quiet neighborhood. This house is (as far as I can tell) the most secluded house in the neighborhood - a fact that our family appreciated. I loved spending early mornings on the very private master balcony, feeling like I was in my own little world.

The bunk room was a fantastic feature for our children - the 4 year-old stayed in the queen room (1st floor) with his parents, but the older boys (ages 10 and 12) absolutely loved having their own room this year. Quite honestly, the adults appreciated it even more than the kids! The couple who got the tower room were amazed at the 360 views of Draper Lake and the gulf. We had been concerned that this room would feel cramped, but it is far more spacious than the pictures might make it seem. In fact, everything about this house is bigger, brighter, and even more beautiful than the pictures show. We loved how light-filled it was, and how comfortable we are were in it.

One of the best parts of staying here was the private access to the beach. We've always used the Gulfview Heights access and then walked down to Draper Lake. The short walk from this house to the private boardwalk takes you right to Draper Lake (or to the community pool, which is just three house from this house). I loved that we were so close to the beach while still feeling like we were secluded from noise and traffic.

In years past, we have always stayed at houses with private pools. We gave that up this year in return for a bigger house, closer to the beach. We've decided it was a good trade. The community pool met our needs well enough, and we liked this house so much that we are already making plans to come back next year - and this time, we plan to bring even more family, to stay in the garage apartment.

Thank you to the owner, for sharing this beautiful home. We have so many good family memories from our visit and we can't wait to come back!

My family has vacationed on the Gulf all of our lives and we have worked our way through Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Perdido Key, Pensacola, Navarre, and now Old Florida Beach/Santa Rosa. This past year has been our favorite so far because of this wonderful beach house in an amazing neighborhood and on an amazing stretch of beach that is open for the taking.

The house is big and spacious, plenty of room for our party of 4 adults and 5 kids. The house is filled with lots of light and has all the amenities you would want. The neighborhood is right on the beach and you can walk from the house to the pool or the boardwalk in less than a minute or two, super easy and convenient. The beach was incredible and the water is crystal clear. We sat on the beach for 6 days straight and enjoyed every minute of it.

We would highly recommend this house and will come back again!

Less than a half a mile away, within walking distance, there are several great restaurants, small specialty shops, and bike and kayak rental shops. There are 19 miles of paved bike paths starting just outside the neighborhood gate. The community has private boardwalks to beach access, where the neighbors congregate to watch the sunset most evenings.

There is also access to Draper Lake by boardwalk that makes fishing and kayaking easily do-able. The sunrise on the lake in the summertime is spectacular.

15 miles away in Destin is the best deep sea fishing accessibility in the southeastern United States.

Its about an hour to Pensacola Beach, where the Oriskany was sunk and the SCUBA diving is deep.

Other Activities: Don't miss the local entertainment!
