Anchors Aweigh at S.S. Minnow: Santa Rosa Beach Retreat

Ahoy, beach wanderers! Ever imagined setting sail on an enchanting vacation without actually boarding a ship? Allow us to introduce you to S.S. Minnow, your dreamy "dock" in Santa Rosa Beach, which promises the luxury of a yacht - without Gilligan or the need to set sail!

Tucked away in the picturesque Gulfview Heights community of Santa Rosa Beach, this inviting 30A vacation home is strategically located just a brief stroll from the pristine, sugary sands and crystalline waters of the gulf. But the allure doesn't stop there. The rare coastal dune lake, just a scenic walk away, is nature's treasure trove. With a unique blend of freshwater and saltwater estuaries, it's not just a visual treat but a haven for a rich array of wildlife. And for those who wish to truly experience its tranquility, kayaking or paddle-boarding across its serene expanse is a must-do!

But for those who prefer a quick splash rather than a lake adventure, this rental homes private pool, shaped like a lagoon and spacious at 26x13, is the place to be. Whether it's a refreshing dive in summer or a warm soak during the cooler months (yes, it can be heated!), the pool is always inviting. Bordered by majestic Live Oaks and regal Palm Trees, the surroundings spell "tropical paradise." And once you're done swimming, the nearby open-air patio, equipped with seating, dining space, and a grill, beckons for a leisurely BBQ.

Step inside the elevated S.S. Minnow, and you're welcomed by a harmonious blend of luxury and comfort. Spread across two levels with a living, dining area, and a modern kitchen on the first, the space breathes warmth and hospitality. The pristine white couch ensemble centered around a TV is the perfect spot for evening relaxation.

And for those culinary escapades, the kitchen, with its nautical aesthetics, creamy white cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances, is your playground.

Comfort reigns supreme in the bedrooms, too. The first-floor king-sized room radiates elegance with its plush tufted headboard. Upstairs, the primary bedroom, complete with an en-suite and a balcony offering gulf glimpses, screams luxury. And for families, the Pack N Play is a thoughtful addition. The third bedroom, adorned in refreshing blues and whites, boasts two cozy queen beds and twin bunks, promising serene slumbers.

Hungry? The Goatfeathers restaurant and seafood shop, just a walk away, offers delectable dining options. And for a dose of retail therapy or entertainment, Gulf Place, with its plethora of restaurants, boutiques, and events, is just a short drive away. Not to forget the iconic Seaside towards the east and the picturesque Village of Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin to the west.

So, fellow travelers, if a blend of coastal charm and luxury is what you seek, drop anchor at S.S. Minnow, your perfect beachside getaway. Bon Voyage to your Santa Rosa Beach adventure!
