Description

This hospitable home is the ideal spot for your next beach vacation or family reunion.  Not only does it personify charm, it can sleep up to 13 fortunate guests! Creature comforts abound here with separate guest quarters. It is located in the beautiful gated residential community of Old Florida Beach, a wonderful world of its own that's just minutes away from Santa Rosa Beach's town center of Gulf Place, offering all sorts of delightful diversions.

You will fall in love with Just Beachy at first sight. The stately three-story rental residence sits back from a double gated white picket fence and is set among towering tropical palms and lush landscaping. A wide veranda spans all the way across its front while two covered balconies soar above on the second and third floors. These balconies feature wonderful views of the gulf, especially from the third story. This romantic balcony is right off the Master Bedroom Suite, which encompasses the entire third floor. You will find yourself wanting to spend a lot of time here sipping a morning cup of coffee or your favorite frozen drinks in the sunset hours.  The Master Suite also has a screened porch off the back where you may listen to the surf from a bed swing that doubles as a twin bed.

This gracious South Walton home has it all! It is a very short stroll away from the sugary beach and a lovely community pool. However, you don't even have to go that far for relaxing refreshment because this abode has its own private 10' x 20' seasonally heatable swimming pool. A patio provides a spot for leisurely lounging in a charming shaded pergola. A grill is available for cookouts, and the pergola offers a perfect place for poolside dining and drinks.

The second story Carriage House faces the pool with a balcony that overlooks the lovely patio. The living area has colorful upscale furnishings that include a burgundy couch and two cheery yellow chairs with a TV, an intimate glass topped dining table with four decorative chairs, and a full open kitchen. A vibrant Guest Bedroom has a queen-sized bed while the lovely nautically attired bedroom has a twin. They share a full hall bath.

The main level of the main house has an expansive Great Room with an upscale living area, a dining table that seats 10 for a fun feast and a Gourmet Kitchen to create culinary delights. Vivid paintings of seascapes, striking whimsical decorative art and sea sculptures throughout this home have playful Floridian flair. Three Guest Bedrooms on the second floor are colorfully styled and share two full hall baths. The bed sizes include a queen, two twins and a two twin bunkroom for the kids. The enchanting tropically inspired third floor Master Bedroom has an en-suite bath, a king-sized bed, a gulf view balcony, and the breezy back porch.

Popular restaurants, bars, and specialty shops are close by along Scenic 30A, and nearby Gulf Place also features seasonal festivals and concerts.

Our Best Vacation Rental Home
This beautiful, spacious home with pool & carriage apt above the garage easily accommodated my 4 family reunion. With a short 5 minute walk to the private beach access in a secure gated community, we felt safe letting older teens walk to the beach. This area of the Santa Rosa Beach beach was more private & not crowded. We had fun playing beach volley ball, building sand castles, looking for shells, riding bikes, and shopping for souvenirs. It rained for a couple of days but the house, pool, and decks allowed for continued enjoyment and great family time together. This rental added to our best family vacation. We want to come back.

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!

Is there a k cup style coffee pot in the guest house. Can we lock the gate to the pool?
Kerry L - Posted: 03/01/2022

Answer:

Yes - a Keurig coffee maker is provided in each kitchen to help get your beach day started. The pool gate does not include a locking mechanism, but pool alarms are provided throughout the interior of the home for child safety.

Is there additional parking somewhere as we will have more than 3 cars?
Jennifer B - Posted: 03/31/2022

Answer:

Just Beachy is allotted parking for 3 vehicles only. If additional parking is needed, you can find options for overnight parking here.

Are golf carts common in this area? If so, are they available for rent locally?
Donna J - Posted: 02/23/2023

Answer:

The Homeowner's Association of Old Florida Beach prohibits the use of golf carts within the community. If you are interested in renting bicycles instead, as an Ocean Reef guest, you have exclusive access to discounted bike rentals through our Reef Rewards program! See you soon!

How far is the walk to the beach?
Jeff C - Posted: 08/21/2023

Answer:

The Old Florida Beach neighborhood has three private beach access points throughout the community. One is located across from Boardwalk Ln, another is across from Alley F, and the final beach access is located at the far eastern end of the neighborhood on Old Beach Rd. Just Beachy is closest to the Boardwalk Ln beach access, approximately a one-minute walk away.
