Sunset Beach is on the south (Gulf) side of Scenic Highway 30A at Seacrest so there are no roads to cross on the short stroll between the villa and the beach, where there are gulf front showers and private restrooms.

We purchased our home in the Sunset Beach community as a place to bring our family with three children together. We especially love the biking along 30A. But most of all, we like sitting with friends on the breezy porch with a glass of wine watching the sunset while our daughter makes the entire family laugh at her goofy stories.
The Owner purchased this house in 2009
Sunset Beach offers the convenience of being next door to Rosemary and Alys beaches but it is much closer to the beach and offers more living space than any comparably priced (if there are any) homes in those developments. The ocean front pool and easy parking are big pluses too.
Our villa has lots of living space, plenty of bathrooms for a family, close beach and pool access and lot's of unique restaurants, stores and amenities within walking distance. Modern civilization, with big grocers, malls, waterparks and golf, is just a 10 minute drive away.
So many great things about this beautiful home that I don't even know where to start. I should, because I'm a realtor and give feedback ALL the time on homes! This. Home...OMG!!!! We went this past weekend for Fall Break. We have stayed on 30A for 9 yrs. This home is PERFECTLY located between Alys Beach and RoseMary Beach. It is beach-side so such an EASY walk to the emerald waters of 30A. It comes with 3 bikes which was a savings for us of over $150...we usually always rent them. Chairs are available for rent just down the stairs of this complex. Each of the 3 spacious bedrooms had their own bathroom. There's even an additional full bath off the main level which was nice for our children that slept on the VERY COMFY pull out sofa. The kitchen is well equipped w/ EVERYTHING and plenty of space for the groceries that we brought. Having a under counter mount ICE MAKER for those beach coolers was extra nice! Ceilings are 10ft which makes this house feel so spacious and the multiple windows let all that gorgeous light in. . Parking was easy and having a garages made it easy for dropping all the sand toys before heading inside. I had direct contact with the owner who was polite and so helpful. And when needing to speak to the management company they were quick and VERY helpful. Porches, porches and more porches...we had our coffee on a different porch every morning! Views from all sides of the house! Walk across the street to ACME restaurant, La Cocina or the Sundries grocery store. Or take a 2 minute bike ride to Rosemary for multiple trips to Sugar Shack with the kids! Or the other direction to Alys beach for a 2 min bike ride to the Donut Truck every morning. Again, LOCATION of this AMAZING home is 5 Stars alone! My husband had to work (a little) and my teenagers would have gone thru "withdrawals" had the WiFi not been strong!!!! It came thru which is A HUGE PLUS for us! We go to 30A 2-3 times per year and we WILL be staying here again! Best 30A trip EVER thanks to this awesome house!!!!!
My husband, 2 adult children and I stayed at this lovely house this past week. We have stayed in other villas here for many years. This was by far our favorite house. Very comfortable with all the comforts of home. Beautifully furnished. The views are amazing! We will be staying here again!
We stayed in this house 3 years ago and enjoyed the neighborhood and short walk to the beach and pool. The house shows little wear, but it is decorated more like a rental property than a home. Nevertheless, everything you need is there and it was very clean. The kitchen is well furnished and a bonus is an ice machine. The house is 3 stories so quite a few steps. Nice porches with views of the ocean and a 2 car garage is a plus. Good location next to Rosemary Beach, but without the crowd.
My daughter and I visited this property during Spring Break. It was just like being at home. Beautifully decorated, comfortable, with all of the amenities you could ever need, we had the vacation of our dreams! We enjoyed being only steps from the heated pool and the ocean. The lanai was perfect for sitting and relaxing in the late afternoon and watching the sunset. Having a full kitchen, complete with dishes and cookware was very convenient for our schedule.
Located between Panama City and Destin, we liked having ample choices for shopping and dining. The community was very family-friendly and quiet.
This was, by far, the best property we have ever stayed while visiting the beach. We hope to be able to visit again soon!
Love this house so much! The online photos do not do it justice. Have stayed twice- with family and for a girls weekend away from the kids. The location is ideal- short walk to Rosemary and Alys. Sunset Beach is a great neighborhood. Great pool for the kids, and the beach is not crowded at all. Beautiful home with an excellent kitchen for cooking, and great restaurants nearby when we were too lazy to cook. Our new favorite is George's at Alys Beach. I highly recommend this home for a great vacation! Look forward to another stay soon.
I had a wonderful experience at this house- it has everything you need at the house, is just a short walk to the beach, and minutes from shops and dining!! There is plenty of space for sleeping and lounging- I felt like I was at my home away from home. I enjoyed waking up and having a cup of coffee on the second floor porch- shutters open and the sounds of the ocean in the background...it doesn't get more relaxing than that! I watched the sun set over the ocean from the third floor balconly, which is an incredible view! I would highly recommend this property!!
