Ed Walline Park is right in the heart of Santa Rosa Beach at Gulf Place where County Road 393 converges with Scenic 30A. This beach access has restroom facilities and two picnic pavilions that sit atop a dune overlooking the gorgeous gulf. In spite of its dune top location, there are ramps that meander down to the beautiful beach below so it is handicapped accessible as well. There is also a unique one-story Observation Desk for viewing the gulf beyond and it is a popular place to spot surfers and frolicking dolphins in the distance. Life Guards are on duty at the Ed Walline Beach Access during the summer season.

Great experience!
5/5 stars
We have been going to Santa Rosa beach for the past 7 years, stayed in a few places, but this house became one of my favorites. Clean, comfortable and in a great location. The golf cart was a huge part of the fun and success of our trip. The second day we weren’t able to start the golf cart, so it was a hassle because we had my senior parents and a one year old baby that needed to be able to go back and forth, and parking lot is very limited at the beach. So I contacted the office and even though they weren’t able to resolve the problem, they responded immediately. Thank goodness my son was able to figure out what needed to be done to start the cart after they towed it back to the house. For any future guess, there is a bottom (red light) under the key hole that you need to push to start the golf cart if it doesn’t start once you unplug it. We never understood why, and we asked our neighbors if they needed to do this and they said no, but just in case because we are still waiting for the technician or mechanic to come tell us what to do…Lol! Despite this incident, we highly recommend this property and will be coming back next year, God willing!

Best beach rental I’ve ever used. Golf cart is perfect for getting around and still the beach is close enough. Pristine house, tons of room for even more than 12. Super nice neighborhood.

My wife and I along with two of our niece's and their families had a nice week at Turtle Shell Cottage. The house worked well for our group of 6 adults and 3 kids. We are very familiar with the area, so we made good use of the golf cart that was provided in order to get back and forth to the beach and local restaurants. The itrip team was very easy to work with and very responsive to our questions and our one issue of a shower drain that needed attention. We normally travel alone, but if we have another chance for a family trip, we would rent again.
- Anthony

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we very much appreciate your feedback. W are sorry about that drain! With the amount of sand that goes down the pipes, this does happen sometimes; however, our maintenance team is always happy to come take care of that for you! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, and we are looking forward to having the opportunity to host you again in the future!

We came to Santa Rosa for our family vacation and everything was really nice. I lost our reservation on Airbnb; so I contacted Sarah directly and she was able to help me sort everything out. The emails are answered really fast. Jason was very helpful and replied quickly to my text messages. We had 8 adult and 4 children in our party and it was more then enough room to accommodate everyone. The beach and restaurant access are close (within walking distance) and family friendly. The only downside was going to and from Destin with the traffic. We will definitely return again soon.
