This charming old Florida style beachfront home with four bedrooms has a warm cheerful appearance and the ability to sleep up to 12 happy beachgoers. It overlooks the sugary shoreline on aptly named Old Beach Road, which captures this locale's nostalgic golden era ambiance. The serene setting is seemingly remote as it is tucked away on the beach south of Scenic 30A in Old Florida Beach. However, it is just minutes away from everything South Walton's Santa Rosa Beach has to offer. The bright white shore is just a stone's throw away from an exotic estuary that connects Draper Lake to the open gulf. This coastal dune lake is composed of a magical mix of water created as it periodically opens and closes its connection to the gulf. Such unique bodies of water are found hardly anywhere else in the world. The rare precious pristine beauty is heavenly since it supports an abundance of natural wildlife, flora and fauna. This residential community comes with its own dock on Draper Lake, so you may try your luck fishing or perhaps paddling around to do some nature watching. There is also a community pool where you may take a freshwater dip before or after going to the beach.
Abandon All Cares has plenty of room for everyone and a lot of the space is outdoors overlooking this special scenery. Two stately columned covered porches span across both the front and gulf side of this home, so you have your pick of where to sit to enjoy the sparkling views while sipping your favorite tropical drinks. A lovely brick patio with an umbrella picnic table sits beside the naturally landscaped dune that has a walkover leading down to the beautiful beach below. This vacation home is a perfect place for beach reunions that may involve different families or age groups due to its harmonious distinctive design. There are Guest Quarters on the main level with two bedrooms as well as two more on the second floor. The bedrooms all have their own TVs and are comfortably furnished in a charming cottage style. Each level has its own living area and a kitchen.
The main kitchen, dining, and living area are on the first floor with handsome dark chocolate colored leather seating, a dining table that seats six as well as a kitchen bar that seats four. A kitchenette, smaller dining, and sitting area encompass the second floor along with two more bedrooms. Living areas on both floors have windows and glass doors leading out to the beachfront covered porches. The second floor living area features a twin day bed with twin trundle for extra sleeping. The Master Bedroom Suite is on the first floor level with a king-sized bed and direct balcony access. It shares a full hall bath with a nice Guest Bedroom that has two queen sized beds and also has balcony access.
This lovely little world of Old Florida Beach is off the beaten path and a very short distance away from Gulf Place, which serves as the unofficial town center of Santa Rosa Beach and offers a wide array of specialty shops, galleries, bistros, restaurants, outdoor musical concerts and seasonal festivals. Many other favorite restaurants and friendly beach bars are also nearby at the picturesque coastal villages that have made South Walton's Scenic 30A famous.
