Description

Elysee Retreat is a sparkling, rare jewel of a home— luxurious yet laid-back, elegant yet completely comfortable, and perfectly placed in an exclusive gated community in the heart of Seacrest Beach. The front facade of Elysee Retreat is a treat for the eyes, with pristinely manicured landscaping, swaying palm trees, and a stunning Mediterranean-inspired design.

Inside, the entire home has been expertly curated by renowned Atlanta-based designer Melanie Turner. Ms. Turner is known for being inspired by high fashion balanced with soothing, natural tones. She believes in surrounding her clients with beauty— and nowhere is that more apparent than at Elysee Retreat, where you’ll find simple, stunning beauty around every corner.

In the living area, crisp white walls are offset with rustic, exposed wood beams and gleaming oak floors. Two plush sofas provide plenty of places to sink down and relax with a great book or movie. The elegantly arched windows and glass doors allow the natural Florida sunshine to flood the space with light. Around the corner is another living space with tons of additional seating.

In the kitchen, a totally unique, bespoke banquette dining area features a cream sofa surrounded by slabs of gleaming gray and white marble. The luxe Gaggenau appliances blend seamlessly with the sleek, Italian-made cabinets and create a clean palette. Nearby, an enormous, live-edge wood dining table has formal seating for ten.

On the second floor, there are three spacious master suites that each include a sumptuous king-size bed set into a custom upholstered bed frame. Each of the three suites has its own private, spa-like bathroom. The grand master suite has a separate soaking tub, step-in shower, and double vanity. The other two bathrooms have a unique, curved, marble vanity and subway-tiled showers. On the third level are two more private bedrooms with tons of flexible sleeping space and a shared full bathroom.

Back on the ground level, the arched French doors swing open wide to reveal a brilliant blue swimming pool surrounded by stone pavers and bright green grass. An outdoor lounge area is an ideal spot to relax with a glass of wine while dinner cooks on the grill nearby.

Privacy, exclusivity, and total comfort— at the one-of-a-kind Elysee Retreat, you’ll have it all. Deeded beach access makes any trip to the shore effortless and relaxing. You’ll also be about a ten-minute stroll or bike-ride away from all of the dining and shopping of bustling downtown Rosemary Beach. With room for sixteen to spread out and completely relax, Elysee Retreat has space for everyone in your group to enjoy a luxury holiday to the shore.

This house was beautifully designed and furnished with elegant neutral accents. The bedding and bath was clean and fresh. We enjoyed every bit of our vacation and felt we have traveled to another world. Short walking distance to Rosemary Beach and to Alys Beach.

Elysee Retreat vs Hurricane Sally

We spent a lot of time inside this home due to Hurricane Sally. Sally brought a few challenges to the home but other than those unforeseen drip zones at some of the large window & at one of the upstairs balcony’s (which caused issues down in the kitchen). The management was helpful in addressing our needs in these
areas. Also because of Sally, our family beach photos were taken inside this ‘catalog’ worthy home. It was the perfect pallet, with its museum white plaster walls and beautifully current decor. Shaun was very helpful in dealing with the few issues we had (ice maker not working & a door that would not open out to the pool). Chris, in the office, worked diligently with us with our special needs traveling with 3 babies.

Thank you for this review of Elysse Retreat, Charlotte. And for rolling with the punches that a hurricane can bring. We admire your bravery and understanding, and for making the most of the situation. We so hope you can return when the weather is better! Thanks again for your kind review.

The Elysee retreat was a dream. Beautiful home. We stayed a week. Two families. 10 kids. 4 adults. Plenty of space for everyone & some. Clean. Gorgeous interior design. Beds were very comfortable in all the rooms. Had everything we needed. Kitchen well stocked. Of course vacationing with 30A luxury was amazing as usual. Thank you Roxxy & Chris:) We asked for the pool to be heated and someone came right away. The beach is a 4 min walk, 2 min bike ride to the cul de sac and then to private boardwalk. Beach chair service was easy & the guys were so nice each time we rented chairs. Loved the proximity of the house to everything. We usually stay in Rosemary but this house was super close. Right across from all the Seacrest shops & restaurants. Gated community. Private. Quiet. Don’t hear anything when you r inside. Kids went in & out as the pleased. We stayed an extra night and would have stayed longer if possible! This house was our family’s fav by far. Would love to rent it again someday! Another great Fall break! Thank you 30A luxury & thank you Elysee Retreat:)

We had a wonderful time staying at Elysee Retreat. The home was lovely and the location perfect for beaching, restaurants and shops. The pool was great for the kids and heating it during the fall allowed them to swim day and night. 30A Luxury Vacations were fantastic. They responded quickly to every request I had prior and during the trip. A special thank you to Roxy and Erin. They are true professionals and provide wonderful customer service!!
Manager response on 2021-02-12 - Response from 30A Luxury Vacations
This makes us so happy, Nancy! We're glad to hear that Elysee Retreat was so lovely and that you enjoyed the location. We love that the kids were in the pool day and night! And thank you for mentioning our staff by name and how pleased you were with our services. We pride ourselves on this. We can't wait until you return!

Will be back again! Best location and gorgeous home!

I’m so happy with the Elysee Retreat property. All of the rooms are large and the living rooms are jaw dropping as you walk into the home. The pool was large compared to other properties we considered renting for our vacation. You are a very short walk to the beach which wasn’t overcrowded. Crabby Steve’s is also a short walk from the house on the beach and his food and drinks are delicious!
Manager response on 2021-02-15 - Response from 30A Luxury Vacations
Ah, thank you so much for this amazing review of Elysee Retreat, Kendra! We agree with everything, naturally. :-) We especially love that you gave a shout out to Crabby Steve's, which is one of our favorite local hang out spots. Please come back again soon and stay with us again!
