My 30A Happy Place Studio Beach condo

My 30A Happy Place is situated in 30A's Gulf Place condos on the west end of Santa Rosa Beach, FL, south of highway 98 and nearing Destin.  On the corner or 393 and 30a.  Now offering a minimum of 3 nights.  NO LESS THAN 3 NIGHTS
The studio condo is on the 2nd floor, has a Queen size bed, with a firm memory foam mattress, a futon type sofa, and a bistro dining table.  Its most prominent feature is the very spacious balcony offering use of a hammock, a sofa, a table and a large retractable umbrella.  There is a view of the gulf and beach.  You can listen to the live music outside from this balcony.  A Comfy and well equipped interior to make your vacation perfect, from the K-cup coffee maker, to plenty of storage areas to unpack your clothes, flat screen tv, on moveable wall mount.  I provide 2 beach chairs and a made for sand, beach blanket OR for a daily fee (on your own $),paid to beach attendant you can rent a beach umbrella and chairs there.  My umbrella STAYS at the condo.  
The laundry room is directly across the hall. Free laundry use. In addition to my balcony, there is a very large balcony for everyone renting in this building to use behind the laundry room that looks directly over the artists pavilion area.  You can sit, relax, have a cool beverage and enjoy concerts in the park from here.

*We provide comfy sheets, pillows and 2 towels per person (not for pools or beach), 3 rolls of toilet paper to get you started, a microwave, small fridge, soaps, shampoo and conditioner, games, pillows, blankets, books, 43 inch screen-smart tv, cable and private WIFI for your use.

The beach is a state park, Ed Walline State Park, and is only 100 steps from the building.  Most gorgeous water here. No entrance $$ Fees, unlike most other State Parks.

A great place to stay and play.  Always something going on.  Thursdays is wine walkabout.  Summertime offers free trolly pick up and drop off to Seaside and back for more fun times, farmers markets, Concerts on the lawn, parties, beach bon fires, etc...

If you want a King size bed, check the 4th floor studio out.  ***(Under new management with Resort Quest-On site)***   There is one picture in my pictures showing it.
The  "KING SIZE BED", is directly above, on the 4th floor. It has exactly the same inside space, but with a King size 14 inch deep, medium-firm, memory foam mattress, a small futon sofa, a 2 person bistro table, and a petite balcony with another 2 person table and chairs for use on balcony.  New flooring and has granite surfaces in bathroom and coffee bar.
This unit has a Beautiful view of the beach from the bed and balcony.  
As of April 15, it is under new management (same owner), but will come with other perks via Resort Quest, an on site management company.
I can refer you for renting, with a code, for specials with them.  It is priced differently and they offer other ammenities that I do not.  I can give you the code, but i cant tell you if it is booked or not, you will need to contact them. 
850-267-6980 and ask for, "Reservation for hotel studio condo - 3-413, town center east building".
CODE:  "Inn at Gulf Place 3-413"  Please give this code to reservations when inquiring about my studio condo with the King size bed.  Thank you.
I have been renting vacation and residential properties since 2012.  Until late 2017, I was happily using Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO), however since the acquisition of VRBO by, the rules have changed and the owners are basically no longer in charge of their own properties and guests are being charged 10-12% service fees, that don't actually benefit anyone, except corporate profits.  
Like myself, Many other owners have discontinued using the VRBO platform, due to so many changes that do not help them, or their guests.  We rent OUR houses, condos and boats to the guests and by not using VRBO any longer, we can provide a better rate overall.  Everyone wants to have a wonderful vacation and not break the bank doing it.  This is the best solution,

Thank you for placing your trust in me and I hope this will establish the beginning of a lasting business relationship between us for many years to come.

My New Happy Place!    Dec 31, 1969

This was the perfect place to stay! STEPS from the beach access, which was so nice! The location was wonderful - we walked to great shops, great food and great ice cream ?? The furnishings were so nice. The large balcony was perfect in the evenings! We will be back. And the owner was so accommodating. Thanks for sharing your hone away from home!

Stefanie Odell's reply:
