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.

Amazing location and host was super responsive! I hate to give it a great review because it will just make it more difficult to reserve in the future!

Debbie, thanks for the review! Looks like your pups also enjoyed themselves. Our doodle spends most days at the bay damp and sandy as well. A good pup life for sure! Come back and see us! -The Boyles Family

A fantastic experience!

This is a truly special camping experience! We had complete privacy, a beautiful view, birds to watch, and plenty to explore within a short drive. With full hookups, we had a very comfortable week's stay. We so appreciated access to Nathan and Crystal's kayaks so we didn't have to bring ours.

A couple of tips to help you prepare. First: bring bug spray! Being on the water, there are bugs and they do bite. Second: think about a way to hang towels and anything that might get wet so they'll dry. It's Florida and it's humid. Our towels got a little stinky -- they just didn't get dry on the hooks we usually use. We had extras and you might want to pack them, too.

The site is on the right -- just to give an idea of how private it isSoft sunsetWe watched this bird fish every morningEarly morning looking out into the bay

Paul, your drone photos are amazing! We've never seen the place from those angles, so those are a real treat for us. Thank you! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and had some peace and quiet. Yes, the bugs love it too! We have come to terms with having to make peace with them the best we can. FL humidity does keep things wet, good point on the towels! Safe and happy future travels to you and yours! -The Boyles Family

Amazing views, your own personal dock, and relaxing back yard! Great location if you want to go to Destin or head into Seaside, FL. Don’t miss the sun coming up in the morning! The colors on the water and birds flying took my breath away!

Josie, thank you so much for your review! We can't claim to catch the sunrise as often as the sunset ourselves, but glad you enjoyed it and witness the beautiful nature at the bay. We're glad it was a peaceful retreat for you. Please come again! -The Boyles Family

Relaxation with convenience…

Staying at this hidden gem of a retreat was one of our favorite camping experiences. It was so peaceful to watch the pelicans loaf, the dolphins play and enjoy the bay life. Everything worked perfectly and the hosts made sure you had all the information you needed to have a wonderful stay. The hardest decision for us to make was whether to stay and relax or venture out to the beach that day. While you are tucked away in this quiet hideaway, you are also only minutes from grocery stores and fabulous restaurants. We are so glad we found this oasis and hope to be able to visit again soon!

Response from Nathan , the Host, on November 15th, 2021

Kimberly, we also struggle with that decision when we stay here! We are glad you found some downtime here at the bay, and we do hope to get to host you again. Thank you for the kind words. -The Boyles Family

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!

Response from Nathan , the Host, on October 21st, 2021

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
