Sandalwood Beach Cottage is a newly built 5 BR (Sleeps 12) luxury coastal modern home stunningly decorated with rich amenities not often found in vacation rentals. Sandalwood is located in Magnolia Dunes, a private 16-home community located on Scenic 30A in the town of Seagrove. 30A is an idyllic Florida scenic highway which strolls through the towns of Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove, and Rosemary Beach.

Sandalwood is located about a block from the beach, a short 3-4 minute walk. While it is a snap to walk to, there is a nice drop-off at the beach access that you can drive/or bike up to, if desired.

Within one block of the cottage is Cafe Thirty-A, Angelina's Pizza, and Goatfeather's Fish Market.

Lots of beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys, two umbrellas and coolers are included for your convenience. The handy beach cart makes your walk to the beach a breeze! Seaside is a short bike ride away where you can enjoy the dining, shopping, farmers market & outdoor summer concerts!

Swing on our front porch swing, enjoy the outdoor seating, and watch the sights of summer! The large outdoor deck off the first floor is covered by a spacious pergola and has a gas grill for outdoor cooking all surrounded by rich landscaping.

The first floor features an elegantly designed living room with a 60 inch flat screen television, dvd player, and custom sound system with built in ceiling speakers. Premium cable is provided with Showtime and Starz.

Music can be played wirelessly directly from your Apple device. Between the living room and kitchen you will find a quaint bar area which houses a free standing ice maker and a cabinet full of beach colored glasses.

The kitchen features marble countertops and is fully stocked with elegant cookware, dinnerware, and serve ware. The stainless steel high-end appliances and convenient island make this a true 'dream' kitchen. A gorgeous wood farm dining table seats nine, with the center island offering three stools for additional seating.

Guests can also enjoy the quaint sitting area off the kitchen with two plush armchairs, perfect for relaxing with a cup of coffee in the morning. There is one queen bedroom on this floor with a 32 inch flat screen tv with built-in DVD player, and is easily situated right next to the full bathroom.

On the second floor you will find four more bedrooms. The first is a custom bunk bedroom with two twin/twin bunks, each with their very own flat screen television. The second bedroom features two twin beds which can be made into a King upon advance request. This room also features a 32 inch flat screen television with a built in dvd player. The third bedroom is a larger plush King room with a 42 inch flat screen TV, a DVD player, and offers premium cable with Showtime and Starz.

These rooms share a very spacious full bathroom that features two separate vanity areas for convenience. The fourth bedroom is the luxurious master bedroom. This lovely bedroom features a divine king bed, a private bathroom with a large tub and separate shower.

Absolutely Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 stayed here during Spring Break for the week. This home is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you would need for cooking and entertaining. The rooms are spacious and the beds all slept so well. The linens and bedding are of the highest quality. It feels like HOME. The beach is very close and the pool is just steps away from the front porch. We will be back again for sure! I 100% recommend this home! You won’t be disappointed.

We had a wonderful time! The house is very nice and well kept. It’s an easy and quick walk to the beach. And, Carlene was great to work with. She answered any and all questions and was quick to respond. I would most definitely recommend this house to anyone!

Great house and great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house! It was beautiful, well taken care of with a perfect open layout downstairs and nice bedrooms upstairs (+one bedroom downstairs). It had tons of cute pillows and cozy throws on the chairs and couches, many pots and pans, beautiful plates and bowls. The property manager Renee was very nice and helpful. The house is just a minute walk to the pool and a few minute walk to the beach. Having 4 bikes was great, we used them daily to ride to Seaside and other little beach towns. The beach wagon, umbrella and towels were very useful for us as well!

A couple of things I wish we had:

- we had two one year olds on our trip so having at least one inexpensive (ikea) high chair would be super useful as well as one pack'n' play or a small crib.

- having a few extra trash bags, paper towels and toilet paper would be great. I understand it was written in the rules that only an initial supply would be provided and it's not that big of a deal. I just thought it was a little weird buying toilet paper and trash bags on the second day of our stay considering it was an upscale rental property.

Thank you for the great and relaxing stay! We love the Emerald Coast and will be back soon!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a wonderful time at our home and enjoyed the bikes, beach towels, beach wagon, beach chairs and umbrellas and coolers for your convenience. We take pride in our kitchen stocked with everything needed for a fabulous vacation. On your next visit, we would be happy to connect you with one of the many certified baby equipment agencies which provide needed baby gear for the beaches of South Walton including 30A. These companies can have everything waiting for you and set up in the house upon your arrival. Thanks again and please come back any time!

Fabulous !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Seagrove was amazing. We had three families which consisted of six adults and six smaller kids. This house was perfect and had everything you could need in a vacation rental! I've rented houses before that look great online but weren't when you arrive. This was very well kept, clean and organized. The beach was a quick walk or short golfcart ride away. The owner of the house was a pleasure to deal with too ! We definitely will be returning to this gem !
