About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, Sleeps 16

Welcome to 'DaShells30A' in Santa Rosa Beach! This six bedroom, six and a half bath, gulf-view home offers guests unobstructed, unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico. A large, private in-ground pool with optional pool heat lies in-front of the home and beach access is available right across the street! The pool can be heated for an additional charge, keeping the water at a comfortable temperature all year long.

Indoors, modern furnishings grace the bright, airy rooms. The open floor plan living area allows guests views of the dunes and the beaches of South Walton, in addition to the jewel-toned waters of the gulf. Modern themes continue through the bedrooms which provide guests with comfortable beds, flat screen TVs, an in-home elevator, and expansive views of 30A.

Guests will be greeted to the home by a private, in-ground pool with Jacuzzi and fountains. A small al fresco dining area and ample seating surrounds the tranquil pool area. Slight gulf views can even be taken in from the pool and first floor King Suites!

Each of the two King Suites on the first floor provides a flat screen TV, a DVD player, direct access to the pool, and a private en suite bath. A Double Queen Suite is also located on the first floor. Sleeping four, this suite features two Queen beds, a flat screen TV, and an en suite bath with a large standalone shower. An in-home elevator provides easy access to the second and third floors of the home.

The second floor of the home boasts expansive, unobstructed gulf views, the open floor plan living area, and an additional King Suite. The living area has seating for nine and a large, mounted flat screen TV. The kitchen is complete with stainless Dacor appliances including a gas range. Guests may dine at the formal dining area for eight, or at four barstools along the kitchen counter. The second floor balcony overlooks the pool and the Gulf of Mexico. Guests can access the pool via the outdoor spiral staircase that connects the first and second floors. The lone bedroom on the second floor is a King Suite with a flat screen TV, DVD player, and en suite full bath.

The luxurious Master Suite, a fourth King Suite, and the home's laundry room can be found on the third floor. With a King bed, a sitting area, a flat screen TV, a DVD player, and a private balcony overlooking the gulf, the lavish Master Suite is undoubtedly one of the finest on the Emerald Coast. The Master Bath rivals the Suite in beauty and splendor. A large walk-in closet, dual sinks, a tub, a standalone shower, and a private water closet service those lucky enough to stay in this immaculate suite.

clean, ideally located, well appointed, just the right size for 6 older couples.

  • 5 of 5

outstanding time of fellowship, relaxation, eating, golf, and shopping. The fact that the entire house was pretty much devoid of closet hangers would still NOT change our rating from 5-stars.

Great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time @ Da Shells. The location was perfect for our family. The furnishings were contemporary and clean. We enjoyed beach and pool time. The only negatives were that the laundry is on the 3rd floor and the house only had 4 hangers in all 6 bedrooms. We would rent it again. Thank you.

This place was beautiful! We stayed here for a week and the weather was perfect! The rooms were spacious and beautiful! We had a group of 14 and it was plenty of room to be in your own space. The pool area was also nice and the kids spent most of their time there. My only complaint would be that there isn't enough pots and pans to cook for a big group, nor is their enough refrigerator space. We cooked most of the days, but space was tight in the kitchen. Five Star has excellent customer service and worked with me constantly from the time I booked our space until we left! Everyone was so friendly and helpful! I almost forgot, this home is right across the street from the beach!!! Literally 15 steps and you're there! You won't be disappointed with this home!

The perfect beach retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Paradis 11/2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the home. You can't ask for a better location with easy access to shopping, restaurants & local attractions. The home's ocean front setting is awesome with a great deck & heated pool overlooking the ocean. Sunrises & sunsets are beautiful from the upper & lower decks. The homeowner & Five Star Beach Properties were both wonderful to work with and very responsive. When the pool heater stopped working, they not only fully refunded the money we had paid to heat the pool but installed a brand new pool heater the very next day for our continued use at no cost to us. We highly recommend this home if you are looking for a beach retreat that is clean, comfortable and has first class customer service. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, the patio furniture is plentiful and comfortable, the full size washer/dryer makes it easy to handle laundry. The home, pool, and hot tub are all well maintained. We will rent Paradis again & have recommended it to several friends and family. Thanks Paradis for a restful & relaxing beach retreat!

Fall Break 2014

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and well maintained. We had a great time. It accommodated 10 of us very well. The pool heater seemed to be broken. This was our only complaint. We would highly recommend this property and are looking forward to staying here again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate you staying with us at Paradis and hope to welcome you back again soon! We did find an issue with the pool heater which was corrected shortly after your departure. I assure you it will be nice and warm for your next stay!

An amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

I was totally amazed at this beautiful home! The pictures do not reflect how big it is. The ceilings were so tall it seemed like they were 20 ft! In all the rooms even up stairs.

The veiw, the pool,the beach, location, everything was perfect.

There was lots of beach supplies in the garage, beach chairs, volleyball net, floaters and sand toys!

The alarm for the doors was a blessing so the little ones couldn't sneak out to the pool. Any problems we had were taken care of in a very timely matter.

Beds were comfortable, bathrooms amazing, decor beautiful.

My family of 13 loved every minute and we hated to leave!

About Five Star Beach Properties and Bliss Beach Rentals

At Five Star and Bliss Beach Rentals, we strive to be different – and we are. Unlike other big-box management companies, our personalized approach and dedication to service allows us to put greater emphasis on creating a unique and memorable experience for every guest that walks through our doors.

Our goal is to pair exceptional properties with unparalleled service. That is why we hand-select only the best homes in Destin and 30A to represent. If you have a property that you are considering renting, we'd be more than happy to provide a proposal and projection.

Experience Service

We believe a vacation rental should be more than a place to rest your head; it should be a place to escape and experience luxury. But offering five-star accommodations is just the start to enhancing our guest's experiences. We treat our guests like family, offering personalized greets, dedicated concierge services, free passes to daily activities and attractions, in-house cleaners, and a professional maintenance team available 24/7.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is wonderful for a family with children of various ages. The pool is a nice size and the house is family friendly. The house is located close to everything we needed (groceries, shopping & dining). We can't wait to return next year.
