Overview

Santa Rosa Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 16

Beach Chair Service (seasonal) and Bikes included with your stay!

Sand Dollar is a magnificent 4 bedroom, 3-story Gulf front home just steps from The Emerald Coast’s pristine white sand beaches. This chic modern beachfront home was recently remodeled and upgraded with fabulous new furnishings and loads of amenities. This is the ultimate beach getaway!

Nestled within the upscale gated community of Vizcaya, Sand Dollar boasts one of the best views in Dune Allen. Perfect for dolphin viewing and sunset pictures. Steps away, relax in Vizcaya’s large heated swimming pool, spacious entertaining deck, private cabanas and well-maintained shower and bathrooms. Sand Dollar provides parking for 2 vehicles in the driveway, and a small garage to park another small vehicle.

Impeccably decorated, this beautiful home’s spacious layout comfortably accommodates up to 16 people. Expansive windows surround the 2nd floor living space, serving up spectacular Gulf views from every angle. The large open great room invites guests to relax and linger, with plenty of comfortable seating, flat screen TV, gas fireplace and café table seating. The expansive views draw guests out to the covered wrap-around veranda where they can spend hours relaxing on outdoor lounge furniture or dine at patio table seating.

Sand Dollar’s large well-stocked gourmet kitchen makes it easy to ‘eat-in’; equipped with stainless steel appliances and expansive granite countertops, there’s plenty of room for multiple cooks. The generous island and bar stools make the kitchen a favorite gathering spot, flowing easily into the open dining room and living space. Grill-masters will be enticed by the custom built-in grill station featuring a large gas grill, a ‘ceramic-egg’ charcoal smoker and spacious granite countertop, all conveniently located just off the kitchen and protected by the covered veranda.

Sand Dollar features four well-appointed bedroom suites, each with its own private attached bathroom for the ultimate in guest privacy. The luxurious 3rd floor master suite overlooks the Gulf, where guests can savor panoramic views from the casual seating area, the lounge chairs on the private balcony, or from the comfort of the king sized bed. Two additional half baths and two sofa sleepers with upgraded Cloud Coil mattresses provide additional sleeping options and guest flexibility.

After an active day in the sun, you may want to escape to the cozy high-tech media room. This amazing entertainment room is decked out with a huge hi-def TV, surround sound, X-box entertainment system, DVD player, a complete movie and sports channel cable package and even some old-fashioned board games. Stock the kitchenette and refrigerator, then sink into the comfy sectional sofa (also a sleeper) and you may find this room hard to leave. With TV’s in every bedroom and another DVD player in the living room, there are countless entertainment options for everyone.

Whether walking, jogging, biking or driving, Sand Dollar guests will want to explore the area’s artsy villages, coastal lakes, eclectic beach bars and world-class restaurants. Guests have direct access to the Timpoochee Trail, a 19-mile paved pedestrian/bike path that runs from Dune Allen Beach to Rosemary Beach. Shoppers can discover unique boutiques along 30-A or take a short drive to nearby world-class shopping destinations such as Boulevard Town Center, Silver Sands Factory Stores designer outlet or Destin Commons to the west, or head east to Panama City’s Pier Park, mega shopping and entertainment complex and movie theatre. Golfers have options too, with nearby award-winning courses including SanDestin, Origins and Santa Rosa Beach Club, Windswept Dunes, and Kelly Plantation.

We had a fabulous time. We loved the private beach and the area. Much quieter then the other places we have stayed on 30A for the past 6 years. The only negative was the TV reception and the spotty internet at times. Would recommend except I'd like to keep it a secret because it was so great!

Reviewer Comments:

While the house is decorated beautifully the lack of a pantry, the difficult beach access for a beach front property and the 6:30 am til 4 pm construction noise right outside the window made the stay less than great. The house was smaller than I expected after looking at the pictures as well. The rental company was very nice and helpful and I would rev omens using them but would not go back to sand dollar at the rate it goes for. It was also supposed to be a private beach but many people not staying there were set up on the beach in front of our house.

Owner's Response: Hello Mrs D and thank you for your review of Sand Dollar. Sand Dollar is wonderfully appointed and has helped to create many family vacation memories. The construction in the neighborhood is winding down now so it should be smooth from here on out. The owner of Sand Dollar has even opened up the garage for renter use to help with some of the parking stress. Sand Dollar is a great home for multi family vacations, and has the room to accommodate. Also, its unfortunate that you were caught up in the middle of the surprise beach rights dispute in Walton County. It is a private neighborhood access, but the beach sand itself is available for all to enjoy. We hope that you will give Sand Dollar another try in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

The Sand Dollar was OK given the location ... certainly not our best experience. Some windows were broken and some did not even open. The BBQ grill lid was broken which made using it very difficult ... besides being filthy and required cleaning before using. Garbage disposal was clogged and we had to call for service the first time we tried to use it. Parking was a nightmare since the garages are locked and unavailable .. so good luck if you have more than 2 cars. It's called a private beach but we had to put up with fishing poles on our beach and our grandchildren had to walk to another house to use their beach and avoid the fishing lines. Workers (lots of construction) would stand on the beach access walks to look at girls and women in swimsuits and I had to chase them off once. At night, a truck with a trailer came in and a family unloaded their trash and stuff in the construction dumpers ... how did they get the access number??

Owner's Response: Hello Mrs. H. Thank you for the feedback. We have since repaired the grill top and windows. The parking is unfortunate at the moment but we may have a solution for that soon. The construction in the neighborhood should be wrapping up soon as well. We hope that you consider Sand Dollar in the future. Its a beautiful beachfront home and is worthy of second try. We would love to have you back.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was beautiful and very clean. The beds were super comfortable. There are three bedrooms upstairs- I king master overlooking ocean, and 2 double queen rooms with their own bathrooms. On the 2nd floor there is a second king master bedroom. There are also a couple pullout couch beds, which were helpful with kids. The house is very convenient with access to beach just one house away, walking distance to stores and restaurants, and rights by heated pool. Only complaint, the garages are not accessible so there is ONLY room for 2 cars to park and no where else in the community to park. Would stay here again anytime!
