Full Abalone (full-o-baloney) is a recently-built beach cottage located on scenic 30A. It's two doors away from a heated pool, less than 100 yards from the white sand beach and miles away from the high-stress crowds and condos.

Other bedrooms have a king, queen and two bunk beds, plus there is a trundle bed in the tower loft that can be a single or double. The tower has a walk-out sundeck with great views of the gulf and sunsets on Oyster Lake.
Our location is a quiet area of single-family homes on Scenic 30-A near Gulf Place. The airports at Ft. Walton Beach and Panama City Beach are each about 40 minutes away.
Amenities: The spacious gourmet kitchen has a granite counter and new appliances. The laundry room has washer and dryer. Other features include free Wi-Fi, wide screen TV, plus DVD players and TVs in all bedrooms.
Activities: Swimming on the sugar-white beach is just 100 yards from our front door. The Santa Rosa Beach golf club is close by. A 17-mile paved trail runs past our house and loops around Oyster Lake. There's great shopping 5 miles away at the outlet mall in Sandestin. Several terrific restaurants are within walking distance. Sport fishing and diving is available a few miles away at Destin Harbor.
Seaside, Sandestin's Baytowne Warf and Grayton Beach, home of the famous Red Bar are a 10-minute drive.

We fell in love with Santa Rosa Beach on our first visit. It's a quiet and friendly community with no high-rise condos or fast-food joints. It's a great spot to relax and take it easy without being isolated.
Guests who stay at Full Abalone are just a few steps away from the beach, the pool, beautiful Oyster Lake, and the great paved walking and biking trail that runs along Scenic 30-A.
We all had a great time (Ages 5-62). Great proximity to the beach and pool. We had green, yellow and red flags and alll were really fun.
Had a great family get together, wished the master suite was on the first floor for Mom since the weekend was all about her and she is no longer able to climb stairs. Beautiful views
We had a great time last week visiting Florida and at Santa Rosa Beach. The pink house is just as it was described to us...and much more. We have three small grandchildren (6, 3, and 1) who were easily supervised as the main living area is on the ground floor. They simply loved the pool next door, and we all enjoyed the beautiful beach. I had been concerned about "crossing a highway" to get to the beach, but that was so easy, safe, and there is only one large house between the road and the beach. The whole week was wonderful and restful.
Some special features we enjoyed were the "television in the bunkbed room" for our grandson...He loved the top bunks' view of the tv if he awoke too early! We loved the hot water shower just outside the kitchen entrance where we put children's shampoo, soaps, and towels to help with bath time. The little room at the very top with the trundle bed was a neat "fort" for our oldest grandchild, but he decided he enjoyed to bunk bed room best. Everything is there for cooking, serving...you only need to visit the Publix that is nearby on Hwy.98. There are very clean and plentiful towels and blankets, etc. There is so much to do all around. We hope we can visit there again.
Oh, we also had to call maintenance once and the gentleman was there immediately and was most pleasant!
This beach house is completely awesome! The floor plan, accommodations, decorating, and location terrific. My Family of ten had a wonderful time and I would recommend this place to anyone!!!!
Please tell the owners how much we enjoyed our stay. Thanks
