MORE INFO: For more information about the area, Mer Sea, & High Pointe Beach Resort, just scroll down (link is located under the 'OWNER INFO' heading below).

Mer Sea is absolutely ideal for two small families, one extended family, or 2-4 couples to share. For even larger families, reunions, or other events, consider Thyme after Thyme, our 7+ bedroom beach house in Seaside, which also has 30 photos on the link below.


Mer Sea is a true ocean-front three bedroom/three bath luxury penthouse villa at fabulous High Pointe Resort, perfectly located right next to all the dining, shopping, and activities in Rosemary Beach. No expense has been spared in creating the area's premier luxury condominium. Occupying the entire west end of the top (fourth) floor of the gulf front building, the views are totally private from every room, offering sweeping ocean panoramas and year-round sunsets over the gulf. Sophisticated and chic, Mer Sea is at the same time casual, very children-friendly, and certain to delight everyone in your party.

With nearly 2000 square feet of interior living area and a spacious, 750 square foot wrap-around terrace encircling the villa, there is ample room for up to a maximum of 8-12 guests. There are two gulf view master suites, each one with a king bed, a 42 inch LG LED TV, and direct terrace access. Each also has an ensuite all-travertine full bath with oversize showers, 8' twin vanities with granite countertops, separate water closets and dressing areas, and either a Synchrony garden tub or exercise area with fitness bike. The third bedroom has two full-size beds and two twins (bunks) for a total of 4 beds in this room, as well as an ensuite full bath (conveniently also hallway accessible) and 32 inch LED TV. There is a comfortable queen sofabed in a semi-private living area alcove, yielding total sleeping accommodations for up to twelve.

Because of its spaciousness, intelligent floorplan, and quiet top floor location, Mer Sea truly has more the feel of a 'home in the sky' than an ordinary condominium. The airy ambiance of a European coastal villa is enhanced by carefree design elements such as travertine and Italian tile flooring throughout, all with stunning blue ocean vistas as the perfect backdrop.


A long list of amenities includes a fantastic contemporary kitchen with 10' curved bar, 6 LED TVs (in each of the 3 bedrooms, both master baths, and a 60 inch Samsung 4K HDTV in the living room), Blu-Ray DVD players and movie library with selections for all ages, free wireless high speed internet, high end furnishings, Synchrony garden tub, exercise area with stationary bicycle, large bedrooms and bathrooms, and ensuite laundry room. Four folding beach chairs (inside the condo) are also provided for your use. A separate closet contains a crib and a highchair. Access to the condo is via a modern spacious elevator; for the disabled, there are absolutely no steps either to the condo or to the pool and gulf-front restaurant (although there is also a wide exterior staircase for those wishing to walk). Parking for three cars. Free daily beach service: set-up of 2 chairs and umbrella on the beach right in front of Mer Sea included, March 1-Nov 1. Four additional beach chairs for guests' use are located inside Mer Sea.


The only true full-service gulf front resort in the area, High Pointe features a fantastic 7000 square foot tropical lagoon pool with islands and waterfalls, separate kiddie pool, large (20 ft) heated spa, lighted clay tennis courts, shuffleboard, outdoor grilling area, children's playground, a fabulous gulf front bar and grill, and of course 600 feet of private, pristine beach. Uniformed, professional, CPR-trained attendents service our beach March 1-October 31. Rosemary Beach, renowned for all its dining, shopping, biking, and entertainment opportunities, is only a very short stroll (500 feet) to the east, as is blossoming Alys Beach to the west. High Pointe is a tropically landscaped, very low density resort with a gated entrance from Florida Scenic 30A, and its facilities are for the exclusive private use of the guests.


Making a reservation is very easy, with most credit cards accepted and an excellent and very professional management service who leave your key right at the property (no need to 'check in'), and who can also assist you during your stay. Just contact us any time if you have questions. (Contact information is near bottom of page.)

Thank you to all our wonderful guests ..... for making Mer Sea the Beaches of South Walton's most popular vacation condominium in 6 of the past 7 years!

Perfect Location, Perfect Condo, Awesome Views!

  • 5 of 5

Mer Sea exceeded our every expectation! Your condo is beautifully designed and furnished, roomy, comfortable, and has everything you could ever want for a relaxing, carefree vacation. The views of the water, beach, and sunsets from the balcony (it's huge!) are simply jaw-dropping. And the location is perfect, very easily walkable (even for our little ones) to all the fun and excitement of both Rosemary & Alys Beaches. No one wanted to leave! Thanks so much for thinking of everything, we will definitely be back next year.
