Still, within a short drive you will find the sights and attractions of Seaside, Destin, and Pensacola, with airport access at either Fort Walton Beach or Panama City.

We invite you to stay in our comfortably decorated condominium on scenic highway 30-A, along the sugar-sand beach and emerald waters of South Walton County, and in the vibrant community of Gulf Place in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Gulf Place is just across the street from the beach, with private access for Gulf Place guests. The unit is on the third of four floors (elevator access) in this popular community, right at the top level of beautiful palm trees which enhance your gulf view. A spacious balcony is accessed by two sets of French doors, and provides ample seating.

Accommodations include one king, two twin beds, and two bunk beds, with one master bathroom and another bathroom accessed from both the hallway and the guest bedroom. Six people can be quite comfortably accommodated. Television with cable is available in the living room and in both bedrooms. The unit has been decorated in tropical and nautical fabrics, and you will enjoy artwork which has been collected on our travels around the world.

Our guests have access to three pools (one heated), tennis courts, shuffleboard, walking/bike trails, and charcoal grills. For golf enthusiasts, the Santa Rosa Beach and Golf Club is only a short walk away, and offers 18 holes, some with gulf view! You can also enjoy summer concerts on the grassy amphitheatre in the center of Gulf Place. For cooking, the kitchen is fully furnished, and the adjacent dining table comfortably seats six, with room for two more on stools at the bar. Two grocery stores and a wonderful family-owned and operated seafood market are only a short drive away. And for those who need computer access, free Wi-Fi is available.

Every vacation should include opportunities for shopping and dining, and at Gulf Place you will find both. Right in our community you can enjoy an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, pizzeria, wine bar, and a full-service restaurant, with other dining opportunities within several blocks. Shopping in Gulf Place includes clothing boutiques, bike rentals, day spa, hair salon, and a full-service pharmacy. Only several miles away you can also enjoy the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, with dozens of upscale stores, including Polo, Brooks Brothers, Cole-Haan, Coach, and many more.

You'll have a great time.

Why Kirk Lee chose Gulf Place

For years we rented at various places along Scenic 30A. We decided to buy our unit at Gulf Place Carribean because it is on the third floor, has a good view of the gulf, and is as close as we could get to the beach from a property located on the north side of 30A. In front of the building are elegant single family homes. So, whenever we went to the beach we found a quiet place away from others. The sunsets from either the beach or balcony are beautiful. The sand is white. The sea is emerald.

What makes this condo unique

There are more than three private access points to the beach, just a short walk away. Within Gulf Place there are a number of restaurants and shops, all within walking distance. A gas and convenience store just down the street. Plenty of convenient parking at the building.

Guestbook comments from the owner


My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in your condo this past weekend. We have been renting units at the Caribbean for many years and yours is the nicest and certainly the best equiped of all. We don't cook in the units, but it was a pleasure to have a complete set of dishes, wine glasses. etc. We look forward to using it again in the future.

Bright, comfy place for beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything our family looks for in a beach getaway plus some extras. It is an easy walk to the beach with gear in tow. It is decorated nicely with interesting and colorful art. It has a super close pool option when kids tire of the sand. We enjoyed the proximity to the restaurants and fun shops. My personal fave — the bike and running path on 30A is right there. As stated in many reviews, Kirk is very attentive to any question or need. The place was fully equipped with all the essentials. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely beach home! It was clean, nicely decorated and we loved the spacious balcony...we spent a lot of time there. We found the kitchen to be well equipped with all the things we needed for meal prep. Access to the beautiful, clean and well kept beach was easy and very close. Access to the parking lot when loading and unloading was also easily accessible.

We enjoyed a pleasant week and will definitely return someday! Thank you also for answering all of our questions, prior to arrival, so promptly.

Thank you for making our week so enjoyable!!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for a 3 day weekend event we had to attend in Santa Rosa Beach. The location was great with easy access to the beach and restaurants in walking distance. (Loved pizza by the sea.) Beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels were a nice touch!
