Description

If you are looking for a charming, classic, comfortable home for your next beach vacation with up to 7 family members or friends - look no further than Painted Porch! It is just a short four-block stroll away from the bright, beautiful shore, and a private plunge pool sits right beside the home for refreshing fun. The pool patio is studded with palm trees for a wonderful tropical ambiance. A multi-toned paver stone patio has lounge chairs, an umbrella table along with a grill inviting you to enjoy some relaxing cookouts, drinks, and dining poolside. This lovely home also include four complimentary bicycles making exploring the outdoors a breeze!

Although this vacation home is contemporary, it is styled with Vintage Modern furnishings and features vibrant Floridian flair. Paintings, prints, and decorative art throughout display colorful shells, fish wall sculptures, a mermaid angel, a giant crab, abstracts as well as a serene forested coastal dune lake setting. Rich hardwood flooring flows throughout, and three bedrooms all have white shiplap walls for a warm cottage feel. The open living area is light and bright, with a row of windows that look out onto the columned front porch entry. A dark, handsome wraparound leather couch, an accent chair, and a salmon-colored armchair provide a comfortable, convivial seating arrangement. They face a wall-mounted Flatscreen TV for evening entertainment or that "must-see" game. The open state of the art kitchen features brushed stainless steel appliances, crisp white cabinetry, and thickly veined marble countertops. A kitchen island in the center has four raise Vintage Modern black seats with unique half backs and gleaming steel frames, which are quite striking. It provides a perfect place to gather for favorite drinks and snacks when not out by the pool.

The Master Bedroom includes a full en suite bath with a walk-in shower. It has a king-sized bed flanked by two ship lantern lights for a nautical effect and faces a wall-mounted Flatscreen TV for night time viewing pleasure. The two Guest Bedrooms share a full hall bath with a tub shower combination. One Guest Room has a lovely simple cottage styled look with a queen-sized bed, which is also flanked by ship lantern lights, and a wall-mounted Flatscreen TV. The other Guest Bedroom is great for kids since it is a colorful bunk room with its own Flatscreen TV to keep them busy—a twin and full-sized bed sleep a total of three.

This great Frangista Beach location is close to popular Gulf-front restaurants that dot the dazzling coast here. Two of them are within walking distance, including The Whale's Tail. This casual, laid-back sun deck restaurant usually has a fun volleyball game in progress. And, The Royal Palm Grill with Gulf view dining and a friendly beach bar. Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive special discounted rates at Seascape next door for a championship golf course, professional tennis courts, and recreational watersport rentals or parasailing. This location is also near grocery stores, wine shops, and bargain shopping for world-class goods at the famous Silver Sands Premium Outlets, one of the nation's largest designer discount centers. Many restaurants, lively bars, specialty boutiques, free concerts, festivals, and delightful family amusements are also close by at Sandestin's Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard.

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!

Does this property have private beach access?
Rebecca T - Posted: 03/06/2023

Answer:

Yes! Painted Porch utilizes a private beach access at the end of Hollywood St, approximately a 4-5 minute walk away. Remember to bring your beach towels!

Is there an outlet that a golf cart could be plugged into by the driveway?
Lori J - Posted: 04/02/2023

Answer:

The closest electrical outlet to the driveway is near the swimming pool on the side of the house. A long heavy-duty extension cord could be used to plug in a golf cart, however, most rental companies prefer to use gas golf carts over electric. Hope this helps!

Is there an age restriction?
Doreen H - Posted: 04/05/2023

Answer:

Ocean Reef Resorts' customary policy is no reservations will be made to students or singles under the age of twenty-five. However, we understand extenuating circumstances may apply, please contact one of our reservationists for specific information.

Would you consider allowing one small, well behaved dog?
Nicole S - Posted: 04/29/2023

Answer:

We love our dogs here at Ocean Reef, however - Painted Porch is not a pet-friendly property.  If you are unable to board your pup, you may want to consider one of these Pet Friendly Rentals.

Can you smoke outside the home?
Angela B - Posted: 05/18/2023

Answer:

All Ocean Reef properties are non-smoking only, with the exception of exterior common areas. This includes the driveway, pool deck, etc. We ask that you please dispose of all cigarette butts accordingly and do not leave them on the ground or patio furniture.

Are there towels provided at the property?
Holly A - Posted: 04/06/2024

Answer:

We provide linens and sheets for the beds, bath towels, and washcloths. You will want to bring your own beach towels, as we do not provide them. Our properties are furnished with enough disposable goods to get you started; this includes trash bags, paper towels, toilet tissue, dishwashing detergent, and bar soap. Our kitchens feature the basic necessities, such as a k-cup coffee maker, toaster, blender, silverware, and dishes. You may also want to pack hair dryers, additional disposable goods, and specialty kitchen items such as spices, aluminum foil, sandwich bags, etc.

Here is a helpful video to ensure that you are fully equipped for the beach!
