Perched high upon the soaring sugary dunes of Santa Rosa Beach which overlook the gleaming dazzling jewel toned colors of the gulf below sits the residential community of Gulf Place. It has an awesome location as the gateway to Scenic 30A at the County Road 393 juncture right in the heart of the Emerald Coast and is the lovely town center of Santa Rosa Beach.
Gulf Place is a colorful collection of retail shops, restaurants, bistro bars and residences that wrap around a lush green lawn with a two acre outdoor amphitheater that can accommodate up to 3,000. Besides the views of the gulf beyond it serves as a focal point for seasonal festivals, live entertainment, concerts, art shows and the 30A Songwriter’s Festival.
Gulf Place is a self- contained world with a Sunrise coffee house, Sunrise Ice Cream Sweets parlor with a Game Arcade, The Perfect Pig Grill & Fish House, Pizza by the Sea, La Playa Coastal Cantina along with the Skunk Gulley Liquor & Wine Store. It also features a Day Spa, Florist, Caterer, Veterinarian Clinic, Pet Store, Pet Groomer, clothing boutiques, galleries and the YOLO Paddleboard Company for sales or rentals. Multiple pools, tennis courts, lushly landscaped grounds, sparkling fountains and a lovely lagoon complete the Gulf Place setting. It sits directly across from the convenient beach access at Ed Walline State Park. Showers and bathroom facilities are available here with a long ramp down to the beach below which is handicapped accessible.
This brand new addition to the Gulf Place residential community includes townhomes located in two buildings near the palm lined town green. They stand four stories tall with garages located on the first level. These buildings are built to withstand even the very highest hurricane force winds with masonry concrete insulated exterior walls, storm doors and reinforced windows. Soaring nine foot ceilings on the first and second floors along with ten foot ceilings on most of the third floor accentuate a bright open space. Eight foot tall Masonite interior panel doors dovetail into this spacious look. Entry doors come with keyless locks.
