Overview

Gulf Mist House Rental Photos and Description

2 Spacious Bedroom/2 Bath, Sleeps 6

Don't let the 2 bedroom tag fool you...this sweet cottage with an open floor plan and living area is spacious and allows for comfortable lounging while watching huge flat screen tv. Wifi, cable, and movie channels are included, and the home has washer/dryer for your convenience.

The home also features an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops, solid wood cabinets, breakfast bar, microwave, and pantry. It is fully stocked and ready to be used to create wonderful meals during your stay.

When the sand and salt become too much, and quiet spot for reading is needed, there is a clean and well-kept community pool just down the street with keyed access for renters.

For those ready to enjoy the outdoors, there are several beach chairs with umbrellas for your use. There is also an affordable bike rental facility next door. One fabulous feature of this area is the 20 miles of biking/walking paths along all of highway 30-A and in more tucked-away off-road trails.

The home is located walking distance from great local shopping and dining. Public beach access is just across Hwy 30-A. The beaches in this area of Florida can't be beat! We are in close proximity to many lovely communities with additional shopping and dining opportunities like Seaside (Just voted #1 Family beach in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine), Watercolor, Rosemary Beach, and Grayton Beach only a bike ride away.

***By the way, I get push notifications on my phone when inquiries are made in order to be able to reply quickly to questions, so kindly refrain from sending inquiries between 11pm and 7am central time. Thank you for your consideration.***

About Donna Fargason

Our family has been traveling to this area of Florida for years and years. When we saw this place for sale this past fall, we had to snatch it up. It is so close to everything we love to do, and the beach access can't be beat short of being on the beach itself.

Donna Fargason purchased this house in 2012

Why Donna Fargason chose Seagrove Beach

This property appealed to us because of it's location in wonderful Seagrove Beach, and its proximity to Seaside, Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach. The dining and shopping in the area can't be beat!! The neighborhood Gulf Mist is on a cul de sac and is occupied mostly by owners. It is well-maintained and monitored by people who know the area and care about the upkeep and reputation of the neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

This home also has a balcony upstairs and comfortable seating downstairs that allows one to enjoy the evening sunset and breeze. The firepit and courtyard are perfect for entertaining. There is also a garage and plenty of parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location and very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend the listing at 24 Crystal Court. Seagrove beach is just steps away from the front door and the home has everything you need. Our family loved this location and are already talking about booking this home for next year. Thank you Fargason family for your accommodations. Sandy Pause was just perfect. 😀

Owner's Response: You're so welcome. We do hope you return. We book up fairly quickly, so if you have favorite dates, don't wait too long. We have lots of repeaters who like to keep their same weeks year after year. Hope to add you to that list!!! Donna

Best Beach Rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best beach rental we have ever used and we are blessed to come down to 30A several times a year! I would live here full time in a heartbeat. The house has everything you can possibly need (including a crock pot, food processor, etc.). I also really appreciate how nicely decorated everything was. Often times a "pet friendly" house means they don't put any effort but this house was so beautifully decorated (awesome art collection!) and immaculately clean. In fact it was cleaner than other places I've stayed that don't allow pets. My only concern going in was if the fence would contain my Schnauzer. Pet owners know that a fenced in backyard is GOLD and I'll happily report that Mr. Pinto the Schnauzer did not escape! The fence is great for anything bigger than a toy breed. We will definitely stay here in the future! I hope Sandy Pause will always stay pet friendly so I encourage future renters with pets to please respect the space by cleaning up after pets, etc. so we can all continue to enjoy this gem of a house!

Owner's Response: Brittany, thank you for the incredible review. I will be sure to let my housekeeper and decorator know how much you enjoyed their contributions to the house. We hope you return - we love repeaters!!! They tend to treat the home as their own and help us to keep it in great shape! Donna

Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was an excellent choice for my family and pets. The house was well maintained, clean and furnished nicely. The kitchen was well furnished with pots, pans, utensils and small appliances. The backyard was fenced with a short fence which worked well for our english bulldogs. The house is located on a dead end street which is perfect for walking your dog or small children riding their bikes. The walk to the beach was short- across the street and two properties down. The owner is quick to respond on any issues and takes quick action to resolve them. I definitely will stay there again!!!

Another awesome stay at Sandy pause!

  • 5 of 5

We stay here at least once a year as its simply the best pet friendly rental on 30a! Clean, comfortable and well appointed. Donna is a pleasure to work with and has made some nice, recent upgrades like a new couch and grill. We can't wait to come back!

***Pets and their owners are welcome at Sandy Pause. Our fenced in back yard is a perfect solution for travel with your pet.***

Seagrove (address listed as Santa Rosa Beach due to its unincorporated status) is a step back in time. While neighboring areas have become crowded and over-developed, Seagrove encompasses the very unique and lovely Seagrove Beach Community located in Walton County, Florida, in the state's panhandle. It boasts more than 60 public access beaches, as well as a number of beaches located in state parks, including Grayton Beach and Blue Mountain Beach.

Eden Gardens State Park features a 19th-century-style house set amidst beautiful moss-covered oak trees. The renovated home is a showcase for the second largest collection of Louis XIV furniture in the U.S. and offers a great glimpse into the country's past.

In addition to lounging on the beach and hiking in the parks, you can rent bikes to peruse the shops, go golfing or fishing, play tennis, and go on a guided tour. Horseback riding is available at several places in the area.

After you have spent the morning or afternoon at the beach you'll want to try one of the great local restaurants, and there are numerous casual dining options, including Pickles Beachside Eatery, Louis Louis, Red Bar, Cafe 30-A, Bud & Alley's, and the Donut Hole Bakery Cafe.

For those more interested in shopping, visit Magnolia House for its jewelry, handcrafted rugs and original artwork, Mystic Porte, which is home to a variety of unique shops, Seaside and Watercolor boutiques, and the Shops of Grayton, which specializes in fine art and gifts. Silver Sands Outlet Mall is a only a short drive to Sandestin, and offers hi-end shops such as Coach, Michael Kors, Saks Off-5th, Banana Republic, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, and more. Nearby Panama City Beach's Pier Park is a mega outdoor shopping mall consisting of over a million square feet of specialty shops and restaurants plus a 16 cinema Grand Theater.

In Seagrove, look no further than Gulf Place. This shopping and dining village is located right across from the public access beach, Ed Walline Park, and features a great selection of clothing, surfing accessories and home décor items. And for a bit of extra pampering after a long day of shopping and beachside fun, there is also a lovely day spa.
