This home is just steps from the gulf and you can see the gulf and beautiful sunsets from the balconies and rooftop. 

The kitchen features state of the art appliances and a huge island with breakfast bar seating. Your seating options also include the large, custom dining table with plenty of room for eight or more. Enjoy the marvelous sunsets with a cocktail in hand on the balcony overlooking Gulf Drive. The side deck also includes a cozy pub table for two.

Back inside and down the hall of this main level you will find two king master bedroom suites. Each bedroom offers TV and beautiful custom tile showers. A convenient half bathroom and full laundry facilities complete this level.

At the top of the stairs - or an elevator ride up - on the third floor you will find the super fun bonus room. This spacious loft makes a great place to hang out or can even function as a 5th bedroom. There are two twin beds with trundles and cable TV. Kids will love the funky surf vibe! This area has yet another balcony with relaxing Adirondack chairs and full views of sunset and the Gulf of Mexico.

Through the sliding barn door you will enter another king master suite with access to the balcony. This bedroom features a huge ensuite master bathroom with double vanity, deep soaking tub and serene spa shower.

Down the hall and to the right takes you to the fourth king master suite. This room also has TV and the bathroom offers a tub/shower combo. Through the door outside you will see the spiral staircase which leads you up to the expansive roof deck. The deck offers sun loungers, Adirondack chairs and astounding sweeping views of the gulf from left to right!

This home includes everything a family needs to pack light. The kitchen is stocked full of cookware and bakeware. The garage includes a double BOB stroller, puddle jumpers, life jackets, a portable cooler, tons of pool and beach toys and rafts, skim boards, boogie boards, a paddle board, and a heavy duty huge wagon to take everything  you need with ease to and from the beach, which is just steps away!

Last but not least, this amazing home would not be complete without the private heated pool and spa.  The pool patio includes an outdoor fridge so you can easily grab your favorite drinks while you lounge by the pool or play ping pong or backgammon. Colored LED lights will make your evening sparkle. Relax in the jetted hot tub/spa, grill a delicious meal or enjoy a game of ping pong in the covered lounge area. There is also an outdoor TV and bar for your entertainment. 

Best of all is the gorgeous turquoise water of the Gulf of Mexico right outside your door. Simply cross the street and you are there, on the wide white sand beach, just steps away from the renowned Beach Bistro. Grains of Sand is pure paradise.

^Please keep in mind that if the elevator becomes inoperable for any reason, the stairs will be only way to access the living area of the home.

A note about “hot tubs” and “spas”

Please be aware that the advertised hot tub and/or spa is a section of pool that circulates water from the pool with relaxing jets and warm temperatures. This type of hot tub is powered by an electric heater and will usually reach temps in the high 90s, or more, depending on the outside air temperature. Spas do not run continuously and may not achieve the high temps of a standalone or commercial hot tub. Spas do not heat automatically when not in use. To activate the spa and begin the heating process you must turn it on with the control panel and wait 30-45 minutes for the maximum temperature to be reached. The spa will turn off automatically but you can push the button again to reactivate it. As with all pool and spa heat, at times when the ambient temperature drops too low (50’s and 60’s) the heaters will be unable to operate.
