'Gone Gulfing' Private Pool/Spa, 4 Ensuite Bedrooms, Great Reviews!

Turn off Penny Lane onto Abbey Road to this professionally decorated 'Fab 4' bedroom, 4 ½ bath home located in the private gated community of Coastal Grove. You are just steps from the sugar white sands of Santa Rosa Beach. Ed Walline Beach Park public beach access is less than a 5 minutes stroll and is equipped with bathrooms, outdoor showers, picnic tables, and grills with a lifeguard protected beach. Or just step out your back door to the beautifully landscaped, private heated pool and huge 8 person spa exclusively for use by Gone Gulfing guests. Lounge by the outdoor fireplace during cool fall and winter evenings. Dine at the 10 seat outdoor dining table by the pool.

This home, 'Gone Gulfing', was built in 2007 and is full of top end upgrades such as granite countertops, stainless kitchen appliances, top quality Kohler fixtures, crown molding and 9 foot ceilings throughout and travertine tile on the first floor and in all the bathrooms. Original artwork by a popular local watercolorist is featured throughout the house. All bedrooms feature luxury hotel quality mattresses.

Living Areas: The open floor plan kitchen, dining and family room are great gathering places for your gang. Some might be hanging out in the family room enjoying the 70” high definition, internet connected flat screen TV while others prepare meals in the fully equipped kitchen. You might also choose to rustle up some nice steaks or grill a fresh catch on the Weber charcoal grill or high end gas grill out back. Cool off from those hot days with a refreshing Margarita for the adults or a fruit smoothie for the kids with the automatic Margarita machine.

The dining room features a large table for dining or playing games in the evening with the whole crew. Or catch a quick meal at the three seat breakfast bar by the kitchen. The sofas in the family room provide seating for 5. The washer and dryer are on this floor as well. One of the sofas accommodates a bed height air mattress that slips into the sofa for extra sleeping accommodations for 2 guests.

The Bedrooms: There are two master suites and two bedrooms with full bath. The 2nd floor John Lennon master suite has a walk-in shower and granite double sink vanity. The 3rd floor Paul McCartney master suite has a whirlpool tub and granite double sink vanity. Both the 2nd floor George Harrison room and the 3rd floor Ringo Starr room have a full bathtub shower. All bathrooms have travertine tile. All bedrooms have hotel quality mattresses. All four bedrooms feature a king size bed. Or, if you prefer, any bedroom can be re-configured with two Twin XL beds. All bedrooms are equipped with 42” flat screen HDTVs. The two master suites are equipped with Keurig K-cup coffee makers to get you going in the morning. Each bedroom opens to a teak rocking chair equipped balcony. Enjoy the sea breezes and relax on your balcony with a cup of coffee and catch up on your email or the news before starting the day. Listen from any balcony and you’ll probably hear those relaxing gulf sounds.

There are also 2 portable Frontgate EZ beds that set up in minutes to a twin size bed-height air mattress that can be used in any of the 4 bedrooms. Cut and paste this link in your browser to see how the beds work.

The Area: Gulf Place is just across the street and offers several restaurants, an artist colony, live music many nights, boutique shopping, bike rentals, even a pharmacy in case you get a little sunburned on the beach. Stop by the coffee shop for a cup of coffee in the morning or ice cream in the evening. There is easy access to the 19 mile paved Rte 30–A bike trail to allow you to explore all the unique communities along the 30-A corridor from Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Alys Beach to Rosemary Beach to name a few as well as the natural setting of parks and dune lakes.

Come on over. Enjoy the sounds, the art, the comfort. Take your coffee over for a morning stroll on the beach. We’d love to make your vacation something special.

Gone Gulfing    Jun 22, 2019

This house is amazing! Our 6 adults and 3 children had ample space for kicking back, resting up, or dining. With 4 bedrooms (very comfy beds!) and 4 bathrooms, no one had a complaint. Our personal pool with its large patio space provided hours of entertainment, too. The house is very close to the beach making for a perfect split between beach time and pool time each day. Trudy & Rick were so easy to work with and their welcome pie made us feel right at home. We can’t wait to visit again and enjoy this beautiful home.

Trudy Davidson's reply:

That's terrific! Rick and I are thrilled that Gone Gulfing met and, hopefully, exceeded all of your expectations. We love hosting family vacations and doing our little part to help you make memories. It was a pleasure meeting you. We'd love to see you again, any time! Best, Trudy

Amazing Stay in Gone Gulfing    Aug 04, 2018

Great house for family or group of friends. Love the location also. This home is well appointed. You don't need to bring anything with you. The kitchen is well equipped, beach chairs, wagon to tote everything you need on the beach. Just perfect! But that's not all, the backyard is amazing. Great pool, bbq's, lounge chairs, shade, sun and cabana! Oops, I forgot the outside showers to wash off after the beach. You won't go wrong with this property. It has everything it says it does and more.

Trudy Davidson's reply:

Thanks Heidi. We happy that you enjoyed your time with us and that you felt we had everything you needed. We enjoyed meeting everyone and I enjoyed chatting with you. Please think about coming back to see us again sometime. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a terrific review. We appreciate it. Best, Rick and Trudy

Trudy Davidson's reply:

Ah that's so great! We enjoyed working with you and appreciate you sharing your positive experience in a review. We absolutely love it when families tell us they had the best vacation in years. That's our goal. Please do come back to see us again! Rick & Trudy

Celebrating 60!    Sep 16, 2016

There were 6 of us young ladies celebrating another decade birthday and it couldn't have been any better for accommodations. Two of us travel a lot and all of us have had at least 40 years of coming to the Gulf. This was the most complete and very comfortable place I have ever stayed. It does not overlook an ocean but the oasis in the backyard makes up for it. The balconies with the rockers are convenient for quiet star gazing and just relaxing. It was like staying in a boutique hotel with every detail tended to - there was even a Krueg coffee bar set up in the master bedroom. If we had a question about anything they were there to answer it and make any changes necessary. Extremely clean and the kitchen was so well stocked. You can cook anything and entertain as well. There are even quite a lot of movies to choose from with a huge TV screen . It is the real deal. Everything it says here is true. The walk to the beach is not a biggie or just as easy to drive the umbrella and chairs to beach- there is parking lot right there. We rented extra umbrella and the beach guy set up our umbrella we brought as well for us! Also not too far down the beach was the VUE restaurant that was excellent! Can't wait to plan our next years trip!!

Trudy Davidson's reply:

We are so happy that the big birthday celebration was a success! Please come back and blow out next year's candles with us :-). Trudy

Perfect Vacation Home    Jul 02, 2016

We stayed with four adults and two children at Gone Gulfing between July 2-9, 2016. The house and amenities were beyond our expectations. We were greeted by relaxing music playing from the Sonos sound machine and the property manager arrived shortly thereafter to give us a walk through of the property. She was also on call all week and helped us find the perfect spot to watch the fireworks on the 4th. Everything was clean, well maintained, set up and ready for us to begin our vacation. 
Santa Rosa beach is a very short stroll away and plenty of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas and other supplies are provided with the property (including the handy beach wagon). If you are not a "do it yourselfer", there are also beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. set up on the beach every morning which can be rented fairly cheaply from an unrelated company. The pool and cabana area were perfect for relaxing in after a day at the beach. The house comes with many games (video and board) and is set up for everyone to have an exceptional vacation. There are multiple restaurants and shopping venues nearby. We wish we were still there. You cannot go wrong with a vacation at Gone Gulfing!

Trudy Davidson's reply:

It's always nice to hear that our guests wish they were still at Gone Gulfing. That's the goal! I'm afraid we can't take credit for the idea to greet you with the lovely music playing. That was our property manager, Casey's idea. She is as invested in making sure you have a great experience as we are. We are extremely fortunate that she is part of our Gone Gulfing family and we treasure her. I'm glad you mentioned the beach service; no one else has mentioned that in any of our reviews so it's good information for potential guests. Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review and for choosing Gone Gulfing! Take care, Rick and Trudy
