Description

If you are looking for a relaxing get away located directly on an uncrowded stretch of white sand beach, your search is over! Sand in My Shoes offers gorgeous gulf views, fabulous accommodations and the perfect location on 30A! This newly renovated three bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhouse sleeps 10 comfortably and is less than 50 yards from the door to the beach! Situated on the west end of five attached gulf front units, Sand in My Shoes offers gorgeous ocean views and breathtaking sunsets off two balconies directly overlooking the Gulf. This also makes it the closest unit to the private gated beach access stairs. There is one reserved spot directly in front of the unit with additional parking on site.

You'll enter through the two story, open foyer where you will find a storage area for beach gear. Up 2 short flights of stairs you'll enter the main floor living area.

Enjoy the modern updates in 5B. The main floor consists of an updated half bath and large well-appointed kitchen with new tile backsplash, new quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, floor to ceiling white cabinets, new island with seating for four, and a beautiful live edge wood table that seats 6. In addition, new flooring was added throughout the main floor. The family room has a large LED TV, surround sound, DVD player, Bose Wave System, games, puzzles, books, DVDs and of course free Wi-Fi. The entire south wall is glass sliding doors allowing amazing views of the beach and ocean.

The 2nd floor contains a large beach-side master suite with a king bed and updated bathroom with dual sinks and large tile shower. Both have fantastic ocean views through the wall of glass sliders opening to the large balcony. The 2nd floor balcony has 2 reclining chairs with ottomans to relax while taking in the sights, sounds and feel of panoramic ocean views from Panama City Beach in the east to Destin in the west. This floor also contains another large bedroom with 2 queen beds and attached updated bathroom. This 2nd bedroom has a small balcony overlooking the pool with an ocean view to the west. Both bedrooms have large closets and flat screen TVs. Laundry is located on the 2nd floor.

The 3rd floor bedroom/loft has 3 custom built-in twin extra-long beds with an additional twin trundle and built-in cabinet. Each bed has its own reading light and electrical outlet with two USB ports for charging all your devices. The loft includes a TV and DVD player.

"Sand in My Shoes" is ideally located directly on a quieter stretch of 30A's world renowned beaches, away from all the crowds while only about a mile to the center of Seaside. Seaside and WaterColor are just short bike rides away. Centrally located in Seagrove, it gives you access to nature trails, biking and jogging paths, water sports, great dining and shopping.

There are 10 restaurants less than a mile from "Sand in My Shoes" including Cafe Thirty-A, Surfing Deer, Seagrove Market Cafe, The Perfect Pig and Angelina's Pizzeria & Pasta.

"Unit 5B was great for us! We had the best access to the beach and 2 balconies with seating and gorgeous views of the gulf. Nice large kitchen with plenty of plates and utensils to have meals at the condo. The property was clean and there were 6 of us staying there. Our sons are tall, 6'2" and 6'4" but both slept in the xl twin room and had enough space to sleep comfortably. Our bed was very comfortable also, and we had plenty of towels. The amenities exceeded my expectations because there were beach chairs that we hadn't expected! We would recommend this condo."

"5b Pros
Location
Views for days
Storage for beach items
Quite family friendly
5b cons
Master bathroom absolutely STINKS/SMELLS! The toilet is too low smells and needs to be replaced. We kept the fan running and the door closed the entire stay.
The master bathroom needs to be replaced. The sink light was hanging off the wall.
2nd bathroom same here. It needs to be replaced. The shower curtain has mildew or mold all over the bottom of it. The artwork is falling of the wall.
The ceiling in the living area has mildew or mold around the air vents.
The appliances in the kitchen all have rust stains on the outside of them.
Stuff is jammed packed in the lower cabinets comes across as unorganized and junky
Dishwasher doesn't work with pods we washed things twice I ended up hand washing most of the time.
Air conditioner works but not the best still had to use floor fans to keep the air moving and cool.
Air conditioner leaked to the bottom unit.
We never called Benchmark about concerns we didn't want to deal with maintenance issues on our vacation. Housekeeping should be informing about these kinds of issues. 5b needs a deep cleaning needs paint touch ups throughout new bathrooms and tlc it's starting to show its wear and tear."

"Condo is nicely updated, great location, beautiful beach. However we discovered bugs in all 4 loft beds upon our arrival Saturday. We immediately called benchmark and we’re told someone would be there within the hour. Despite repeated calls and even a visit to the benchmark office Monday we never saw anyone. On Wed we were told the exterminator came in Tuesday. The linens were not changed and when I inspected (and videoed) under the mattresses on Thursday there were
still bugs crawling and ant traps had been placed under the mattresses. Obviously we never used these beds and the kids slept in beds with parents on 2nd floor. A credit of $570 and meal at Pickles was not near compensation for not being able to use 4 of the 10 beds! Such a shame as condo is great otherwise. Benchmark was definitely not responsive like owners are. Also do not hope to get in before 4pm even if the unit was clean by 2pm and there is a thunderstorm - you will have to wait outside in the rain until door code works at 4 even if you call!"

"We rented 5B dunes villas in Santa Rosa Beach. The condo was very nice as was the beach, but the construction going on was very awful. We were told we would hear back about our concerns and never have. I was very disappointed in this rental company. We go on vacation every year and would never use them again!"

"Dune Villa 5A. Absolutely a Magnificent view and location. We had a few issues that really did not affect our wonderful Month stay. The Plugs did not work in either upastairs Bath, I don't use a Hair Dryer, my wife does. We called on 02/02, a man came out and said he did not know how to fix " Breaker 13 " Benchmark said an Eletrician would be forthcoming. This never happened...... We also mentioned on 02/02 that Ants were on the Kitchen Counter, the Exterminator was prompt. 2 weeks later the Ants were back. The Front Left Burner on the Stove did not work and the Front Right did not heat evenly. The Floor in the 1/2 bath definitely needed to be cleaned, i took care of this. DV 5A is Magnificent at our ages the steps were a bit much this trip. We reserved Beachside 1 for 2024.
Many Thanks, Scott and Michele DeCleene"

"This rental has great views, quick and easy access to the beach and the process could not have been simpler. The kitchen is nicely updated with everything you could need and there is a big open area on the main floor. There are a lot of stairs in this unit (stairs up to the main living area and then 2 more floors above that for the bedrooms) so be aware if you have mobility challenges. The outdoor spaces were a highlight - great views and sounds of ocean."

"This townhome had the best location on the beach! Private access right next to this unit. Beautiful beach and not as busy as some of the other neighboring beaches. It was great to rent bikes and ride around town on your bikes because traffic is busy during spring break. We did have some minor setbacks. The dishwasher was already broken when we got there. But nobody told us. After trying to wash dishes in the dishwasher four times I called maintenance and they said that they knew it was broken and were waiting for a part to arrive. They did come the next day and fix it. But just a heads up would've been great so I didn't think I was doing something wrong and waste my time messing around with the dishwasher. We were at the beach when they did send the maintenance guy in to fix the dishwasher. No one told us he was there and my daughter walked in to the villa by herself with a strange guy in there. It really freaked her out. I think a text would've been great to say hey we're sending someone over and if you're not home they will let themselves in. We had no idea and for my 15-year-old to walk and by herself and have a strange person in there was upsetting. The loft on the third floor we never actually used because the ceilings are lower. If you're an adult you would have a hard time using that loft. And of course there's no door since it is a loft. Master bathroom did have a little bit of a smell to it. Not sure what was going on there. We did not call maintenance since we were already dealing with maintenance with the dishwasher. Did not want to waste my vacation pointing out every single problem. We also had major problems using the keypad to open the villa door. It didn't always work. All five of us had problems with it. We were putting in the right code and hitting the checkmark. It was quite a pain. I was suggest giving someone a back up key too."

"The unit would be perfect if it had been cool. This was our second year in a the exact unit, NOT ONE complaint last year, but BENCHMARK determined the lack of air must have been our fault! Spent 5 out of the 7 days trying to get the unit cooled off (77-80 degrees). After the fourth day BENCHMARK finally sent air conditioning company and they found a "small Leak". We had two wonderfully, cool days and nights! Then it was back up to 80 degrees! BENCHMARK was quick to answer and polite on phone, but determined, there was not a problem.. Even though the AC company found a "small leak"? Don't Trust BENCHMARK to take your problems seriously.
BEAUTIFUL UNIT.... There are others in Dune villas with same layout, and you don't have to rent from BENCHMARK!"

"We arrived the week after the hurricane hit the panhandle. This area luckily escaped unscathed. However, our unit had no internet for the first 2 days of our stay and no cable for the duration. I contacted management about the issue and they kept saying it should be back up anytime. I really expected some type of compensation. I would have certainly stayed at a different property. It was most annoying because I asked about any problems from the hurricane before I arrived and was told everything was great and ready. That wasn't true.
Also, we ran out of toilet tissue and the kitchen trash can had 1 bag in it. I contacted management and they said that they allow 1 "complimentary" roll of tissue per bathroom and 1 trash bag. They then directed me to a convenience store down the road. I have stayed in VRBO's from Hawaii to Boston and have never heard of this. This unit sleeps up to 10 people. We had 3 adults and 3 children 5 and under. We ran out of our 1 roll limit in the main level bath. I think they should have had extra somewhere. As for the trash bag, they require you to take out the trash before you leave. That is fine and no problem. However, once we filled our one bag, I don't think it should be up to me to go buy more trash bags. If you want me to take it out, provide something to carry it in.
Sometimes it's the little things that make the difference. That being said, this unit was very clean and looked just as described in the pictures. The location is great and we loved using the bikes. There is a rental across the street where we were able to rent additional ones.
The stairs are very steep for small children, so it might be better for those with older kids. The linens were scratchy but the beds were comfortable.
All in all, this is a great place to stay. Just know that you need to bring trash bags, toilet tissue, paper towels, a can opener, beach towels, and you will have to buy ice."
