Seamist is a private, 12 unit only condo building with spectacular, oceanfront views both from inside the unit and from the top-floor balcony (unit #10) of the pristine white sands and crystal clear waters of the Emerald Coast. It is nestled immediately between Seaside Beach & Watercolor Resort and Alys & Rosemary Beach.
This condo is a beautiful one bedroom (with king-sized bed)/one bath with an additional set of twin stacking bunk beds. Unit 6 is crisp, clean and extremely welcoming. The brand new kitchen is fully equipped with all the dishware and appliances you will need. There is easy seating for meals between the bar and dining table. Also included: wifi, full-sized/stacked w/d, 2 grilling areas on a small, nice green lawn to enjoy while the sun begins to set. You get the entire condo, minus one small hall pantry which contains a few of my things for when I have the opportunity to vacation there myself!
Take a virtual tour of the condo here.
You will enjoy having the entire condo to yourself. I have a wonderful property manager that lives in the area and is available if you have any problems. My husband and I are available by phone, text, or email to answer any questions you might have.
Seamist on Scenic Highway 30A offers easy access to scenic hike and bike trails along the coast; deep-sea diving and other ocean activities at marinas in both Panama City Beach and Destin; shopping and browsing of art galleries and boutiques at Seaside, Watercolor and the surrounding beach communities; golfing at award-winning courses such as Camp Creek, Shark's Tooth, Origins and Santa Rosa Beach Golf & Beach Club; extraordinary dining from barefoot beachfront to world-class cuisine; and unique local entertainment impossible to resist such as farmer's markets, free outdoor repertory theater each evening and many live bands and musicians. In the end, though, the memories of moving on 'beach time' and of the peace and relaxation that comes from the sound and beauty of the crashing waves on the white sands and from breathtaking sunsets will be what you will likely enjoy the most.
The 30A sidewalk runs in front of the condo which many people use to bike to Alys Beach (1.5 miles east), Rosemary Beach (2 miles east), The Hub (an outdoor entertaining and casual dining area 1 mile west), and of course Seaside (6 miles west). Renting bikes is easy. There are lots of reasonably priced vendors in the area and they deliver and pick up the bikes to/from the condo - even if you aren't there at the time.
A single parking pass is left in the condo for you and is required to remain on your windshield during your stay. While each guest receives a parking pass, we sometimes have non-guests use our parking lot. Cars that don't have the parking pass clearly visible may get towed at the owner's expense. Sorry for the inconvenience, but not having a parking space is more inconvenient ;) There are fences that restrict beach access to guests only. All guests will receive detailed driving directions prior to arrival.

At the light, after you've crossed the bridge, go left onto 98. Go approximately 1 mile. Shortly after going left onto 98, then go right onto 283. You will proceed a few more miles.
At the blinking light turn left onto Scenic Highway 30A. You are in Grayton Beach.
Within a few miles, you will enter Watercolor, then Seaside, then about 5 miles later will be Seamist. If you enter Alys Beach (all white structures) you've gone about a mile too far.
