Overview

Seacrest Condo Rental Photos and Description

Unit 12E Gulf Front - 2 bedrooms + sofa bed, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

High Pointe Resort is gated Gulf Front Beach Resort located next to Rosemary and Alys Beaches in Seacrest Beach on the south side of Scenic 30A. Rosemary Beach’s main square with its lovely restaurants, shops and parks is only steps away. High Pointe Resort is one of the most well-known and well thought of Gulf Front Beach Resort properties on 30A. Our condos face the beach and Gulf. It is a true Gulf Front. You see the water from the master bedroom, the living room, and the kitchen.

The numerous amenities at High Pointe Resort keep vacationers coming back year after year. The resort showcases a huge, 6,000 square foot lagoon pool, baby/child pool and a large hot tub. Two composite regulation tennis courts, shuffle board courts, barbecue grills are located throughout the property and the children will enjoy the play area made just for them. Crabby Steve’s Grill and Bar is a popular spot located near the pool with fabulous Gulf and sunset views. It has the best view on 30A and is a great place to grab a bite to eat at reasonable prices without leaving the resort. The 30A Bike path runs right through the front of the property and meanders along the entire 18 miles of Scenic 30A.

We offer our guests complementary private beach service, with daily set up of two beach chairs, umbrella and side table just for you between March 1 and October 31.

Our 1st floor condo is directly facing the beach and Gulf. These are beautiful condos with spectacular gulf panorama. A true gulf-front living! Enjoy a private covered patio with lawn just off the Living Room and Master Bedroom. The condos have been updated and redecorated. The walls are decorated with original paintings. The kitchens are stocked with a full set of pots/pans, glasses, utensils, blender, toaster oven and much more. The water heaters and heating and air-conditioning systems are brand new ensuring cool temps in the summer and warm in the winter. The patios have a table, 4 chairs and adjustable chaise lounge(s). We have upgraded to large screen HD/LCD TVs with DVD players and free Netflix movies on demand; new mattresses; and free, unlimited local and long distance phone calls.

Sit back and listen to the waves as they roll onto the sand and enjoy the unobstructed views of the gulf. Our condos are located only steps away from the beach, the pool and the Crabby Steve’s bar and grill. Parking is in front of the building with easy 1st floor access (no need for elevator) and shared luggage carts.

High Pointe Resort is a 5 min stroll (2 blocks) from Rosemary Beach's village, ten miles west of Pier Park in Panama City Beach and 20 miles east of San Destin Resort. Along 30-A there is golf, shopping and dining.

About Owner - Andjela Kessler

Artistic and athletic. I was obsessed with skiing until I experienced Rosemary Beach. Born and raised in Europe. An author and a former journalist, now in the arts field.

Owner - Andjela Kessler purchased this condo in 2011

Why Owner - Andjela Kessler chose South Walton

The first time I walked into this condo, I was amazed how open and close to the turquoise blue water it was. We were just on a vacation, renting and had no intention to buy. But, it struck me how unique it was with incredible vistas of the Gulf, from not only the living room, but the bedroom and even kitchen. And, the dramatic contrast...At the terrace, gazing at the water, it is peace and solitude. Outside the front door - action and play, the high fever activity at the lagoon pool and bar. Needless to say, it turned out to be a very expensive vacation.

What makes this condo unique

The beach access is only steps away. From the patio you can see the beach and Gulf (the patio extends into a garden area), and the huge, long lagoon pool is only steps from the front door. Rosemary Beach, with its lovely restaurants, cafes and shops is right next door. A long biking path winds in front of the resort for 18 miles to the State Parks.

Great location, average unit

  • 3 of 5

The High Pointe Resort is a very nice facility and in a great location, adjacent to Rosemary Beach restaurants, bicycle rentals, etc. The owner was very good to work with, provided clear instructions to access the unit and very responsive to resolve issues.

Specific pros to unit 12E:

- Main floor access helps to avoid the lift

- Proximity to the awesome pool, beach and Crabby Steve's restaurant on site

- Waterfront view (see related con below)

- Sleeping capacity (three beds plus a pullout sofa; although more than 4-6 people may feel cramped)

- Added bonus of beach toys/floats for the kids to enjoy

Specific cons to unit 12E:

- Main living area furnishings were a bit large for the space; dining area was cramped

- Morning trash pickup was immediately outside the 2nd bedroom window

- Main floor access provided for a footpath between the patio and gulf view which can be bothersome (and unexpected - be careful w/ open curtains and perceived privacy like you would have on a higher floor)

- Plant growth outside the patio blocks the view of the beach, but does allow for extended and immediate views of the water

There were some general maintenance items we identified and communicated to the owner when we arrived. She was quick to respond, however it did reduce the functionality of the unit.

Overall, we love the resort. The pool is fabulous. We may seek a different unit next time on a higher floor to have some of the preferences mentioned above.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thorough review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our unique beach resort property and want to return. The 1st floor gulf front units are more private in that the dunes hide a direct view of the beach during high tide (as shown in our pictures online) and thus provide a buffer to the noise from the beach. As you aptly stated, the choice of floors is an individual preference. What many of our guests like about the 1st floor is the grassy area beyond the terrace which greatly extends the terrace area. We regret that it took longer than unusual to get the repair done, but during high season, we are always at the mercy of the maintenance people.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough great things about this area! The resort was very well maintained and the condo was as well. This was our first visit to this area and couldn't be happier with the convenience of the condo in relation to the beach, pool and Crabby Steve's (which was surprisingly good). Bike rentals were helpful for getting around to the various shops and restaurants. We would definitely vacation here again!

Fantastic gulf front condo

  • 5 of 5

We were so very pleased with this condo. The view is breathtaking; the photos in the ad can't even show how beautiful the view is from both the master bedroom and the living room. The condo is well-maintained and clean, and the owner left us a bottle of wine, which was a nice touch. The pool is very large and never felt crowded, and the location is phenomenal with easy access to everything you need and want on your beach vacation. I hope we can stay here again!
