About the property

E. Bldg Gulf Front 1st flr. - Newly Updated, 2 bdrms , 2 en-suite full baths,

Would you like to stay only steps away from Rosemary and Ayls beaches for a fraction of the price? If so, this condo is the one for you and you couldn't be closer to the Gulf! 12E is a true Gulf Front beautifully remodeled condo!

The first thing you see, when you wake up, is the turquoise blue waters. You see the water from the master bedroom, the living room, and the newly remodeled kitchen.

We own two identical Gulf Front condos, the other is on VRBO #90183.

Our 1st floor, newly renovated condo is directly facing the beach and Gulf. Spectacular Gulf panoramas! Enjoy a private covered patio with lawn, giving you privacy and a feel of a house. And inside, for eye candy, there is plenty of original art.

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.

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

High Pointe Beach is private gated Gulf Front Community located next to Rosemary, Alys, and Seacrest Beaches on the south side of Scenic 30A. Rosemary Beach’s main square with its lovely restaurants, shops and parks is only steps away and so is Alys Beach’s cluster of restaurants and shops. You never know when you may run into a country music star or another celebrity. Quite a few have homes here.

High Pointe Beach is one of the most well-known and well thought of Gulf Front Beach Communities on 30A, showcasing a huge, 6,500 square foot lagoon pool, kiddie pool and a large hot tub. Two composite regulation tennis courts, shuffle board courts, golf practice net and putting green, BBQ grills are located throughout the property and the children will enjoy the play ground 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.

We now have an easy walk over to the beach for strollers and wagons. The 30A Bike path runs right through the front of the property and meanders along the entire 18 miles of Scenic 30A.

The kitchen is stocked with a full set of pots/pans, glasses, utensils, blender, toaster oven and much more. The heating and air-conditioning systems ensure cool temps in the summer and warm in the winter. The patios have a table, 4 chairs and 2 adjustable chaise lounge(s).

We have large screen HD/LCD TVs in each room, DVD players, Internet connection, secured WiFi and free Netflix movies on demand.

Parking is in front of the building with easy 1st floor access (no need for elevator) and shared luggage carts.

High Pointe Beach 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 Sandestin/Destin. All along 30-A there is golf, shopping and dining.

About Andjela Kessler

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

Andjela Kessler purchased this condo in 2011

Why Andjela Kessler chose Seacrest

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.

Spectacular views! Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

This updated condo was a great spot to get away and relax. Amazing ocean views, convenient, quiet location.

Condo was very clean, smartly decorated with updated furniture. Owner was very responsive with any questions. Beach access is a short walk from the condo, as are bike rentals, pool, and many other amenities.

The biggest con to this place is missing the spectacular sunsets when you leave! Absolutely will stay again!

The property was as expected. Nothing special, comfortable, but very dated. The location is the best part about it. Just a few issues, no dish detergent in the kitchen, screen door was off of the sliding door to the back patio, the living room rug had hair matted in it and we found cock roaches.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and your review. Whenever a new guest arrives we send an e-mail asking if there are any housekeeping issues that need to be addressed..... We received the following e-mail from you the day after you arrived: “Thank you for the wine and popcorn. Everything is good, but I did want to let you know about a few things. The screen door for the patio is lying up against the wall on the patio, the shelf in the shower master bathroom is loose and there is no dish detergent in the kitchen. Not a problem for us, but wanted to let you know. Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving.” ............... ........... Responding specifically to your issues: 1.. Condo Dated – The pictures on HomeAway of the furnishings and rooms are current. The master bathroom and the kitchen was totally updated, both in Jan 2017. The furniture in the master bedroom was replaced April 2017..... 2. Found roaches – We have a monthly pest control service and no other guest, including the one who left the day you arrived, has mentioned a bug problem. As a rule, housekeeping will alert the pest control company if they see any live insects. Perhaps insects appeared because of the sliding doors being left open for an extended period of time during your stay as there was no mention of this in your e-mail.

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!
