1 acre directly on Choctawhatchee Bay in Santa Rosa Beach with a private beach, dock and pond. Stunning panoramic views of the Bay and salt marsh. 7 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico and all the great restaurants and experiences of Walton County's  30A. Close but secluded enough to feel like you have your own private piece of paradise with amazing sunsets and sunrises! Spot numerous bird species, watch mullet jump, catch crabs, and look for dolphins. If you enjoy fishing, try night fishing on the dock, too. If you bring a boat, Cessna Landing is just under 2 miles away with a very nice free public boat launch. Tie your boat to our dock for the duration of your visit. Boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, swimming, sunset watching, bicycling and campfires are a few things to enjoy while at the 30A Bay Getaway.  sunset viewing deck, bay beach/dock, fire pit and heated outdoor shower are included in the listing. Owners are not onsite during rental periods so you will have the place all to yourselves. This is our vacation home but as we have busy lives with small children we want to share this amazing place with others when we can't enjoy it. A few cautions: 1. At certain times of the year the noseeums and mosquitos can be plentiful, bring bug spray! 2. 30A Bay Getaway is located in a natural environment with lots of wildlife. Use caution and common sense. 3. When the winter winds are blowing out of the northwest, it can be breezy and chilly. 4. Water levels will vary based upon the tides and wind conditions. During the winter low tides may reduce boat access to the dock. Check-in is 3 PM. No check-in after 10 PM. Quiet hours are 10 PM - 8 AM. 

FOR BOOKINGS CREATED AFTER MAY 31, 2021, use of the Washer/dryer, screen porch and 1/2 bath is NOT INCLUDED.

This stay was the highlight of our trip! We were lucky enough to have perfect weather so we had the opportunity to get out & explore the bay with the kiddos thanks to the provided kayaks! The abundant wildlife kept our girls entertained for hours. Big THANK YOU to Crystal & Nathan for being such accommodating hosts!

Michael, this is wonderful! Our kids also spend hours upon hours in nature when we are at the bay hideaway. It's a child's paradise for sure and we're glad you and your family made memories at the bay. May all your future family adventures be safe and adventurous! -Crystal

Oh my gosh, you could never be so lucky as to find this little place of Nirvana!! Seriously, no joke, this is such an incredibly special place. There are a pair of Osprey that live right next door. Lots of wonderful Brown Pelicans, Cormorants, etc.
if you are lucky enough to score this place consider yourself soooo lucky!!!

Thank you for your kind words, as we get joy from sharing our little place with others. Safe travels on all your future adventures! -Crystal

My family and I have traveled all over this country in our motorhome, and we have stayed in some spectacular places. But this site? This is something very special. I am so glad that Nathan and Crystal decided to share this place. We were there for 5 nights, and I wish it were more. From the dock we saw blue crab (of course), hermit crabs, all sorts of fish, stingrays, osprey diving into the water, and sunsets more beautiful than what our minds could digest; in those moments our eyes simply testified directly to our souls. Yes, it’s that stunning. There wasn’t one negative aspect about our stay. There were no problems. If I were forced to find a problem, it would be that we couldn’t stay longer.

Matt, wow. You sound like a professional travel guide! We are thrilled you and your family enjoyed our little bay hideaway. The wildlife always entertains, the sunsets always take your breath away, and the peacefulness always renews the soul. There are many beautiful places in the country to visit (many on our own bucket list!), so we are humbled by your kind words. Thank you so very much, and we hope to be able to host you again in the future. P.S. thank you for taking such great care of the place. -The Boyles Family

This was our second stay here, and we still can't imagine a better vacation spot. The privacy, location and natural beauty are unsurpassed. While our daughter was visiting us here, she caught a good sized red fish while kayaking and our graddaughter caught a blue crab by the dock. The visiting grandkids spent endless hours doing catch & release with hermit crabs and black crabs - not only was this a fun place for them, it was a safe and happy place as well. Hosts Crystal & Nathan were again prompt to answer any questions we had. We're looking forward to visiting here again.

Response from Nathan , the Host, on August 8th, 2021

Dana, thank you! That is such a sweet review and paints the perfect picture of stays on the bay with family. We just caught a redfish from our paddle board this weekend, and it was so exciting (and tasty!!). Thank you for taking great care of the property during your stays. We hope to see you again. -The Boyles Family.

The perfect beach escape

This was such a wonderful place to stay! The full hookup is convenient and in great condition. The owners take amazing care of their property. You can see one house through the trees, but we didn't see the neighbors at any point during the week, so the privacy is unrivaled. We really enjoyed kayaking on the bay, fishing from the dock, and enjoying the beautiful sunsets. We must have seen two dozen dolphins in the bay while we were there! The heated outdoor shower was wonderful for cleaning the sand off after a day at the beach (rather than tracking it into our camper). There are two Publix grocery stores and a Walmart all within 10 minutes, and several public beach accesses are within 10-15 minutes. The owners are wonderful to work with! They were very responsive and helpful with any questions we had. We will definitely stay here again!

Rick, thank you for the thoughtful review! And love the Airstream! We are happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay and got to see the bay life in action. Even though we've seen dolphins numerous time, every time we see them it's like our first and we get so excited. They are beautiful. Enjoy the rest of your summer and may your future camping adventures be safe and fun. Come again! -The Boyles Family.

Amazing location, well thought out space. Quiet and peaceful, views are spectacular. The screened in porch with kitchenette, sitting and dining area added comfortable space that allowed us to spread out of the RV. Large area for the kids to run around. We hope to go back soon!
