Santa Rosa Beach is an especially large unincorporated community, which actually encompasses a number of smaller named neighbourhoods and communities, including Old Florida Beach, Sunrise Beach, Gulf Place, Gulfview Heights, Point Washington and Mack Bayou. In fact, Santa Rosa Beach holds a relatively small portion of the 30A corridor’s beach front, when compared with other beach communities and in consideration of its extensive frontage on Choctawatchee Bay and Hogtown Bayou.
Due to its age and multiple-community personality, Santa Rosa Beach homes come in a wide variety of styles and price-points. Buyers can find traditional Florida beach homes, contemporary Mediterranean-style villas, and Caribbean-style bungalows. Condo developments are also popular in Santa Rosa Beach, drawing interest from retirees, vacationers who want a hassle-free vacation home, and from the vacation rental market.
