Walk up the stairs, nicely finished with hardwood steps, to the two bedrooms.

This way please, to the master bedroom....

Do the French doors in the master bedroom open to a private balcony? Why yes ma'am, they certainly do.

Head to sleep with thoughts of Happily Ever After....and the next glorious beach day ahead.

And then wake gently to the rustle of palm leaves and the feel of the warm Gulf breeze.

Right this way to the private Master Bathroom...

There's a single vanity with plenty of countertop space for primping in the master bathroom.

Yes, you'll feel right at home in the guest bedroom.

And the brightness of the beach.

There's plenty of seating on the Adirondacks and the bench.

Watch the people pass by, or have an afternoon drink outside.

You'll love the cozy front porch for your morning coffee.

Stepping back outside, the palm trees offer additional privacy for the second floor windows.

After a long day at the beach, enjoy a great meal at one of the fine restaurants in the area, or prepare a meal yourself on the outdoor grill or in the fully equipped kitchen. With books, games, Wifi, and cable TV, there's plenty to do at home, but don't forget to look out for concerts and festivals in and around the area.

Complete Guide to Emerald Coast
So white. So bright. So pristine. And so serene. So get to these hidden, Caribbean-like Gulf sands, already. And don’t forget those walking shoes either. That’s because this stretch of Florida all along Highway 30A, is tremendously ...pedestrian friendly. And most of InvitedHome’s properties are easily accessible to anywhere on the Emerald Coast. By foot. By bike. By pedicab or by trike. The unparalleled shoreline and unique villages are never far from reach no matter what mode of transportation you take. (see less)

Why You Should Explore Florida's Emerald Coast
November 11, 2016 As you ride through the region, specifically down Florida Scenic Highway 30-A, you’ll see signs for places like Rosemary Beach and Miramar Beach. All of those spots are a blast, but for this autumn weekend, set your GPS for Santa Rosa Beach. A ...laid-back, oh-don’t-mind-us sort of town in every good way possible, SRB makes great sense for a quick weekend jaunt because of its ideal location — Atlanta is only a five-hour drive while Pensacola International Airport offers non-stop flights from Chicago, Washington D.C. and other places — and two Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star properties, The Pearl Hotel and WaterColor Inn & Resort.
