Description

The Inn at Gulf Place 202, also known as The Love Nest, is a quaint vacation rental that provides the perfect place for a romantic rendezvous. Hardwood flooring flows throughout the open living area that is comfortably furnished and faces two sets of windows centered by a glass door that leads out onto a gulf view balcony.  Seating here allows you enjoy the breezy views while sipping some wine or favorite drinks. The décor includes nautical oars and a woven straw trunk as well as some fanciful mermaids on the wall. A couch and armchair provide a seating ensemble near an ottoman while a smart TV sits upon a rustic antique dresser for entertainment (live TV not provided). The couch can convert to a queen-sized sleeper sofa if need be. A honey-toned hardwood topped square table with four saddle type stools provides an excellent spot for an intimate meal when dining in. The open kitchen features stainless steel appliances and plenty of creamy cabinetry for tasty treats.

The Master Bedroom has a charming cottage styled look with a king sized bed, a handsome cage door armoire, and sea life sculptures. It has direct access to a bright bathroom with a walk-in shower, a tub, and a vanity sink. This bath may also be accessed from the hallway for use as a convenient powder room.

Gulf Place is perched high upon a sugary dune on Scenic 30A and serves as the unofficial town center of Santa Rosa Beach. It is comprised of a colorful collection of retail shops, restaurants, and residences that wrap around an expansive two-acre grassy outdoor amphitheater.  This serves as a focal point for fun festivals, live entertainment, musical concerts and art shows throughout most of the year. A pool, tennis courts, lushly landscaped grounds, sparkling fountains and a lovely lagoon complete the sensational setting. Directly across Scenic 30A is the convenient beach access at Ed Walline State Park.  Showers and bathroom facilities are available here with a long handicapped accessible ramp down to the beach. Retail shops at Gulf Place include fashion boutiques, the Sunrise Coffee Company, Shunk Gulley, and galleries featuring creations by an eclectic group of local artists. Beautiful artwork includes watercolors, oils, folk art, pottery, jewelry, glass mosaics, photography and even tie-dye clothing. During the summer months artisans feature their own wares when mini specialty shops spring up around the town green.

Besides the beautiful beach, you don't have to go far for food and drinks. Additional restaurants at Gulf Place include: The Perfect Pig Grill and Fish House is a "foodie fantasy land"; Pizza by the Sea, which was voted Best Pizza in South Walton and La Playa creative coastal cuisine with a patio offering bright views of the dazzling emerald green waters.  A short distance away two other favorite South Walton restaurants includes the elegant beachfront Vue on 30A which features Caribbean styled seafood and Stinky's Fish Camp on Oyster Lake which despite its name has fresh, tasty fish caught directly from the gulf.

FAQs

We welcome all of your questions! Most property-specific details can be answered in the AMENITIES tab, for example, "Is beach service included?", "Is there a community pool?" and "How far is the beach?". Additional answers may be found in our Rental Policies.

Still have unanswered questions? We invite you to ask below. Our vacation specialists look forward to providing you with a detailed response to help you find the best place by the beach!

Do you allow pets and what is the charge if you do?
Gregory D - Posted: 01/27/2022

Answer:

We love our pets at Ocean Reef, however - Inn at Gulf Place does not permit them. If you are unable to locate a dog-sitter, you may want to consider one of our pet friendly condos.  They do feature a variable per pet fee, which you can find details on at check-out.

Does Inn at Gulf Place 202 have a shower or just a tub?
George O - Posted: 01/16/2023

Answer:

Inn at Gulf Place 202 includes both a walk-in shower and a soaking tub.

Is beach service available at this location?
Mandy M - Posted: 02/24/2023

Answer:

Beach chairs and umbrellas are not provided complimentary, but are most certainly available for rent. Once you have secured your reservation, we will provide you with the beach services contact information. You can reserve chairs and umbrellas over the phone, or directly on the sand. Sea you soon!

Is there a private beach area or is it public?
Fernando N - Posted: 04/03/2023

Answer:

The Gulf Place community is comprised of two private beach access locations. We will happily provide access codes once your reservation is secured and we are nearing your arrival date!

Is there a coffee pot in the unit?
Jennifer G - Posted: 07/11/2023

Answer:
