What’s in a Name? ~ The Featured Five: 30A Homes by Southern

Scenic 30A has the kind of coastal charm you’ll never forget: sparkling blue beaches, pristine white walls throughout, and cobblestone sidewalks. 30A is a place loved by locals and visitors alike. Lots of the homes have adorably quaint names, so even years after your visit you’ll remember them time and time again! Today, we’re featuring five of our favorite 30A homes with names as fun as what lies inside.

1. Caroline’s Oyster

Wrap around balconies! Porch swings! Decor as bright and colorful as its tropical surroundings. Caroline’s Oyster is a lovely four bedroom, three bathroom 30A vacation home nestled away in Santa Rosa Beach. Locals will know its location in the Old Florida Village community — and soon, you will too! Since up to 10 guests can stay here, Caroline’s Oyster is ideal if you’re looking for a vacation home for a large group.

Two floors of cozy accommodations await you here! On the first floor lies the living room, dining room, kitchen, and third bedroom. Then, on the second floor, you can find the expansive master suite along with second and fourth bedrooms. As an added bonus, Caroline’s Oyster is not too far away from the beach! Or, take a dip in the community pool. The options are endless!

The world is certainly your oyster at Caroline’s Oyster!

2. Casita Del Mar

One of our favorite 30A homes is Casita Del Mar, located in the prestigious Inlet Beach community. “Casita Del Mar” translates to “Little House of the Sea,” which we think is the perfect description! You’ll constantly be reminded of the nearby waters, with clean ivory furnishings, shiplap throughout the home, and pale hardwood floors. In addition, with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, up to 10 guests can stay at Casita Del Mar.

Check out that kitchen! We must admit, any home with ornate and unique light fixtures is a bonus in our book. Not to mention, the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances are a match made in heaven. The living room, dining room, kitchen, and master suite are all located on the first floor, while the remaining accommodations can be found on the second floor.

Meanwhile, Casita Del Mar’s location lies near The Hub, one of the premier hotspots along 30A. The Hub is home to live music, family-friendly movie nights, fabulous dining, and more. It’s known as “The Greatest Backyard Party of All Time.” A visit is an absolute must!

3. Luce Del Sol

“Luce Del Sol,” or, “Looks of the Sun.” With the way the sun perfectly lights up this 30A home, we think that name matches perfectly! Surrounded by tropical foliage and with pops of bright blue throughout, this 30A home will transport you to your own tropical island! Luce Del Sol can sleep nine guests in its three bedrooms and two bathrooms, so get a guest list together and start planning that next vacation!

The large front porch has lots of seating options, so cozy up here and there with your morning coffee and watch the sunrise. Then, out in the back of the home, you’ll find a private grill perfect for showing off your Grill Master skills! Luce Del Sol is located near the beach, so you’re never far away from a day at sea!

In addition, Luce Del Sol is home to an array of fabulous community amenities. For starters, the pool is located directly behind the home — cooling off from the hot Florida sun has never been easier! Or, if you’re seeking something a little more active, the tennis courts are also located nearby. Get out, rent a bike, and explore all 30A has to offer, whether you want to ride a bike up the 20 miles of sidewalk in 30A or paddleboard on the rare, coastal dune lakes.

4. Magnolia House

We know — the view makes us speechless, too. Combined with that gorgeous wraparound porch, how could you say no to a stay here? If you’re looking for a 30A vacation home with a charming exterior reminiscent of old Florida (that picket fence!) with upscale decor and a fabulous view to top it off, look no further than Magnolia House. Up to 11 guests are comfortably accommodated with 2,300 square feet along with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.

There are so many favorite features of Magnolia House, including the tiled backsplash and pristine white furnishings. Because 30A homes are known for their pristine decor and French-inspired architecture, Magnolia House is no different. Each bedroom comes with its own bathroom for maximum privacy. You’ll love the master suite, as it is outfitted with an expansively luxurious private bathroom and balcony, perfect for getting some of that fresh salt air.

Located in Summer’s Edge, Magnolia House is less than two miles away from the beach community of Seaside, where you’ll find a plethora of exquisite shopping and dining along with fun outdoor activities. Don’t miss out on this gem!

5. My Pleasure

It is truly our pleasure to have you stay at My Pleasure! Experience the charm of 30A like never before when you stay here. Tucked away in Santa Rosa Beach, this 30A vacation home has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms for up to 12 of your friends and family. You’ll feel right at home here, with the charming, warm decor and cozy accommodations!

This home was designed for family time — can’t you picture gathering everyone around the living room for movie night? Dinner time will be a breeze here, as you can sit casually at the kitchen island or gather everyone around the beautiful dining table. Additionally, one of our favorite features is the barn door leading from the master bedroom to its adjoining bathroom.

Meanwhile, part of the charm My Pleasure offers is its proximity to all the fun of 30A while still managing to be away from all the hustle and bustle. Dine with the locals at any of 30A’s incredible restaurants. Then, venture out to explore nearby Redfish Lake. No matter what you choose, the options are endless!
