What a great property!! My family has found our new home away from home. Our 2br condo was a gulf-front unit on the top (4th) floor. The rooms were Huge! The kids bedroom had 2 full beds and still plenty of rooms to play. The closets were huge, plenty of storage! Both bedrooms had TV's. The kitchen was large with a walk-in pantry. Definitely enough room for my husband and I to cook and not bump into each other. The condo had gorgeous 16/18 inch tile from the front door to the end of the balcony. The bedrooms were carpeted. The furnishings were beautiful. The Master bedroom was huge with a wrap around view of the ocean. The Master bath was luxurious with dual vanity, a jacuzzi tub and large tile shower. The grill/cafe "Mojitos" on the boardwalk was delicious! We loved their burgers, crab cakes & yummy cocktails! Next time I will try the seared tuna!!! The restrooms were at the grill right off the beach which made it very convenient!! Not to mention they were impeccably maintained!!!!!! did I mention the boardwalk is made of trek not wood so NO SPLINTERS!!!!! The pool was a paradise oasis! Several waterfalls, a hot tub & kiddie pool. Cold, but still wonderful!! The beach was just two flights of stairs away. Thank goodness because with 2 little ones, every step counts!!! There were showers all over to boardwalk rinse off the beach sand. The area around the property has lots to offer! The kids loved to play in the fountain across the street. The Rosemary beach complex next door has Starbucks :), a quaint candy/ice cream parlor, restaurants and retail shops. Next time we will bring our bikes as the area is very pedestrian oriented. We have definitely found our new beach home away from home for many years to come! Thanks Resortquest!!

This was the first time my family and I stayed at High Pointe Resort. We absolutely loved it there. The condo was beautiful and very clean. Our favorite part was the pool!! The kids loved the waterfall and the pool was so big. We will definitely be back. We loved how it was quiet and far away from the busy touristy part of Destin & Panama City. High Pointe is one of the best vacation places we have ever stayed. If you go to High Pointe you also have to eat at Bayou Bill's Crab Shack. They have wonderful food.

This was our 5th year staying at High Pointe. Right next to Rosemary Beach but far more private and a lot less expensive. It seems that every year the property has been improved in a major way. They have everything that you could want in a beach resort; right on 600 feet of beach on what must be a 40 foot dune (no wonder they fare so well even during hurricanes), a beautiful lagoon pool and jacuzzi, tennis, shuffleboard, on-site bike rentals and a little park just for the kids. There is also a small gulf front restaurant that serves food and drinks; excellent for lunch. It is a private beach and therefore is never too crowded. The condos all have great views and access to all of the amenities. We actually prefer the poolside units because you can still hear the ocean but have a much more interesting view of the pool at night. New restaurants opened this year within walking distance so now you can park your car and never leave if you don't want to. We found this to be a great alternative to the crowds of Destin and Panama City Beach. Every time we go down to the Panhandle, we tour other properties. So far we have found nothing comparable to High Pointe. If you have a family, you won't be disappointed.

We rented a three bedroom condo overlooking the pool. The pool is fantastic! Grounds are well kept and there is a little bar on the beach. The condo was roomy, decorated well, and had a great view of the pool. Hot tub was a favorite hangout in the evening for adults. Very few kids/teenagers. A little artsy festival was going on right down the street within walking distance. Restaurants and entertainment are several miles away. The walk to the beach was a little far even though you are right ON the beach. Some of the condos do face the ocean, but 3 of the complexes do not. I personally like to be able to see the ocean and hear it, so this was not ideal. Nice place, but for the money, I probably won't return.

This condo resort has above average pool area, very fun and clean. Also, beach is not crowded like Destin. Only downfall was lack of options for a quick dinner out, but ask the staff they will help you find some local eateries.

The most beautiful beach in the country. Gated and secure. Outrageous pool, tennis, great condos, great for kids. Next to (about 100 steps) Rosemary Beach which is tons more expensive. This is the place. I have been around this world. If you can drive to this place...do it.

Despite the address, this property is in Walton County on Highway 30-A.
3 miles from a grocery store. 8 miles from Seaside/Watercolor.

People who stay here come back...always. I've been back more than 10 times!

Our 4* family oriented complex offers the finest amenities, located on the beach on Scenic 30A between Rosemary and Alys beaches. High Pointe Beach Community features its' own private, 600 ft. long snow white sand beach and private restaurant/bar. You can enjoy 35+ shops and restaurants, plus the daily activities of Rosemary and Alys beaches only 2 blocks away, and the Villages of Seacrest directly across the street. Then return to your private gated community for relaxation and the crystal clear waters of the Gulf and enjoy our many amenities. The amenities at High Pointe Beach Community keep our guests coming back year after year. In the center of our 15-acre complex is an expansive 6,000 sq. ft. lagoon pool with waterfalls. The pool meanders around large sunny and shaded pool decks with plenty of lounge chairs, tables and chairs. There is also a separate kiddie pool and a heated spa pool. Activities include 2 lighted regulation composite tennis courts, golf practice net, shuffle board courts, volleyball and water sports/activities on the beach and barbecue grills located throughout the complex. Kids love the fenced playground area made just for them. During high summer season there are daily organized kids' activities with kids' night out sessions (so you can get away for a romantic dinner). The 18 mile 30A Scenic Bike path starts directly at our front gate. High Pointe Beach Community features Crabby Steve's Bar & Grill. Crabby's is for owners and guests only and overlooks the Gulf with fantastic sunset views. Sitting high atop a dune bluff, it has one of the best Gulf views on 30A and is a great place to grab a bite to eat at reasonable prices, without leaving the complex.

Panama City Beach, Destin and Sandestin offer boat rentals, charter fishing, water parks, world-class golf, more shopping and restaurants if you feel like leaving the beautiful 30A area. ... more   less
