South Walton Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Loose yourself in this beautiful, spacious 3-bedroom, 2 -1/2 bathroom townhouse in the heart of Santa Rosa Beach at prestigious Gulf Place. Enjoy the open living area with high ceilings, cherry cabinets, granite counter tops and custom tile flooring. You can spend time reading or relaxing on the screened porch area or enjoy your morning coffee on the covered porch off the Master Bedroom.

The kids can enjoy their favorite movies on DVD and VCR's, which are conveniently located in all bedrooms. Parents will enjoy the surround sound as it makes movies come alive in the downstairs living area. The Master Bathroom has a jetted garden tub for relaxing and a two-person, seated shower.

Families will enjoy the open spaces in Gulf Place that make it so attractive to allow kids to ride bikes or play ball in a less crowded, friendly environment. Miss Lucille's coffee and Ice-cream shop is located in Gulf Place and is a favorite place for parents to relax with a cappuccino and one of their famous desserts while accessing high speed wireless internet for your laptop or use one of the computers in the cafe.

During the summer, a free concert series is held each Sunday night just outside your door. Take the lawn chairs or blanket to spread out on the large area of manicured grass to hear some of the best musicians in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ms. Frank -

Thank you, thank you for all of the efforts you put into making Almost Eden a fabulous vacation home. We were so pleased from the moment we walked in to see the immaculate home, to the moment we locked the door to leave.

Each and every room had what we needed. The children were thrilled at the choice in games and movies and to have their own secluded third story bedroom.

The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils as promised. The beach closet exceeded all of our expectations. We enjoyed using every toy you had available. The beach cart is an especially nice amenity and we would never want another trip to the beach without a cart!

The home is decorated perfectly - not too much clutter - but just enough to feel like home. Our family is rather persnickety when it comes lodging. You wont catch me with bare feet in a hotel room - your home could not have been cleaner.

I could go on and on. I know Sara enjoyed working with you and so appreciated your quick and thorough responses. Thanks for being available.

Your home aided us in making so many memories.

Thank you,


P.S. I have attached a photo of our group. I'm in the orange cover up.

P.P.S. This is a very sincere note. Last year we traveled to a New England beach and had a old and rather dirty rental.

As good as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a weeks stay at Almost Eden and it was fantastic! The unit was very clean, well maintained and very well stocked from kitchen supplies to beach towels, plenty of bath towels, beach gear and plenty of seating areas and bedding. The unit was in a very quiet area and close to the pools, restaurants and shops of Gulfplace. The beach was an easy 5 min walk with a nice path and the wagon makes for hauling the beach gear easy. Holly was great to deal with from start to finish and we never had any issues. We would definitely return to Almost Eden, it is a fabulous rental property and everything is as advertised from the description to the pictures.

All we have expected was fulfilled and exceeded

  • 5 of 5

When we look for a place at the beach we were looking for a house beach front, this property is not beach front but very close and its characteristics far overcome the short walk. The location is 100 mts off route 30A and in excelent neighborhood. Facilities are complete, swimming pools, walking distance shops, bike rentals, available beach umbrellas and chairs. The house is very, very comfortable and in excelent condition, fully equiped with much more than you will use, tv, internet, dvd player, movies and table games for group or family entertainment. Nearby, you will find a lot of restaurants, shopping, golf, or any other activities like tours, etc. I will come back to the same house without a doubt. All menbmers of my family had similar comments.

We had an amazing Memorial Weekend at Almost Eden!! The house was amazing and there was plenty of space for my family - 2 adults, 2 kids and my parents. The kids LOVED the room with the twin beds and played there all the time when we were home. 😀

Everything was extremely clean and well maintained.

Holly was great to correspond with about our rental. She always returned all calls in a short period of time. Her Pinterest board with activities on 30A is very helpful.

The house is a quick walk to the beach and to the shops. The beach was lovely.

Excellent Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Santa Rosa Beach is absolutely gorgeous and Almost Eden lives up to the Santa Rosa standard. The town home has 3 br and 2.5 baths, and pretty much all the amenities you would want or need. Holly has thought of everything and was extremely accessible and helpful throughout the entire process. We visited recently for a 5 night 6 day vacation with my wife and 3 kids (ages 16, 12, 2) and my elderly parents. The place is nice!! There were a couple of very minor issues, but the only one that really had me worried was that the temperature on the refrigerator was not cooling. Apparently it took it several hours to recalibrate itself after being filled. It was touch and go through the first night wondering if the groceries were going to spoil, but when we woke up it had finally cooled off correctly and all was well. My parents are elderly so it was not really walking distance to the beach for them, but it was not an inconvenience to drive them to the beach entrance. My mother absolutely loved the place. Anyone who enjoys a short 3-5 minute walk would not have any issues with the distance to the beach. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable, enjoyable get away.

Classy place with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Almost Eden was wonderful accommodations. 4 of us stayed here and it was spacious with large living room dining space and large kitchen. The closet is stocked with beach chairs and other toys. Front porch is great for coffee and back porch for wine. Would recommend this place and would definitely stay here again. Third floor has twin beds. We didn't use that room but could fit more folks for larger parties.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property! Had so much space. Across the street from beach. Didn't have to drive anywhere except to outlets. Everything was within walking distance. Pools were not over crowded and beach was secluded-not as busy as public access. Very clean townhouse!
