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

Gorgeous sunrise/sunset paddles

Our favorite HipCamp site yet, and there have been some good ones. If you love paddle boarding, this is the place for you. Gorgeous sunsets, private setting, full hooks ups (water, electricity, and sewer). We usually like white sand gulf beaches but I would choose this location every time, because we loved our sunrise and sunset paddles in the bay—lots of birds, fish, crabs and stingrays. Extra fridge was nice for cold drinks, and did our yoga on the shaded deck. The outdoor shower was fantastic too! Our kids our grown, but would be great spot for children too.

Wow at those photos, Carolyn! I see you found the fun canals to paddle. It's always fun to see what kind of sea life you can sneak up on. We've seen some monster redfish on that trip! Glad the sunrises and sunsets brought you joy, it is what we love about sharing this place with others. May you and your husband have fun and safe adventures ahead of you! ~The Boyles Family

We loved the views, fishing from the dock, kayaking, bird watching, and so much more! The sunsets and sunrises were beautiful!! The porch with the small fridge, fir pit, and outdoor shower were all nice ‘extras’! So convenient for a trip over to the gorgeous beaches too. Thanks again for your attention to detail & for another amazing stay!

We had the best time! My 10 year old daughter had the best time on the dock watching all the blue crabs, hermit crabs, and conchs. If you take one of the provided kayaks into the water you will also no doubt see many sting rays swimming under you… such a cool experience. We could not have asked for a better place to stay.

John, we're very happy this was a nice stay for you and your family. Our ten year old also gathers much entertainment from watching and catching the crabs! The bay is full of life and when it swims under you, it's quite exciting! Thank you for coming and may you and your family (pup included) have amazing future camping trips. -The Boyles Family

This is a beautiful little spot, extremely private and well maintained. The dock stretches far out into the bay, the kayaks were in use every day, and we were grateful for the outdoor shower. We'd definitely camp here again.

Lisa, thank you for the kind words! We're happy the kayaks were put to good use so you could explore the bay. And it's also nice to rinse off that salty water in the outdoor shower! Have fun on future adventures. -The Boyles Family

This is our favorite hipcamp location and is always fantastic. We are always well rewarded with a sanctuary of a campsite close enough to all of the surrounding restaurants if we wish to go out.

Camping at it's best! Though this was a tricky site to get into with our giant 42ft 5th wheel, we made it happen and man I'm glad we did. This was the quietest and most relaxing spot we've been to since we started RVing. We'd love to stay again because the kids had an amazing time.

Response from Nathan , the Host, on February 19th, 2022

Eric, we're so happy to hear your kids had a great time. Our own kids enjoy it too...so much outdoor exploration and learning! It's lovely to hear that your experience on the bay is one of your favorites. We'd be happy to have you again! May you have safe and fun adventures until then. -The Boyles Family

No wonder this spot is recognized as one of FL best.... It is perfection! All that you want, space, privacy, beautiful view. It was cold so we didn't get to have much outside time but the sunsets alone made it worth it.
