Vacation in sheer splendor at Sea Star Palace, our 5,000+ square foot custom-built home in Cinnamon Beach. It boasts 3 master suites, 2 balconies with ocean views, a patio, wet bar, huge HDTV, and a new private pool (as of 2014) that will make you feel like royalty!<br/><br/>Just yards from the sparkling Atlantic Ocean and coquina-shell sands of Cinnamon Beach, Sea Star Palace is located in an exclusive gated community with access to 2 swimming pools (1 oceanfront, the other heated); a clubhouse with fitness center, game room, and snack bar; a children's water splash playground; a Jacuzzi; and private access to the beach. There's... so much to do, you may find yourself curtailing some of your sightseeing to enjoy fun-filled days at "home"!<br/><br/>Sea Star Palace is beautifully landscaped, a Mediterranean-style house in tones of peach. It contains 3 storeys, with sweeping views of the Cinnamon Beach resort and partial ocean views on the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies. You'll feel like you're on top of the world when you sit outside and survey the panoramic horizon!<br/><br/>On the first floor, you'll find a big family room with a built-in wet bar as well as leather couches and homey Oriental rugs. Let the kids spread out their projects here, break out the board games, and get comfortable after a busy day out of doors.<br/><br/>On the same level is one of the master suites, boasting a king-size bed and sliding glass doors leading out to a lovely patio with seating and a table for casual dining. The master bath is palatial too, tempting you to linger late in the morning before rejoining the group! The 1st floor also has a 2nd bedroom with a queen bed.<br/><br/>The second floor features the formal living room, with a 65" HDTV in the entertainment center with Direct TV and a package of over 500 channels, sink-right-in couches and chairs that encourage you to nap, and a long bank of sun-soaked windows. Just beyond this area are a table and chairs for informal dining, and you may have to turn that space into your computer area -- you have free wireless Internet at Sea Star Palace -- or break out the Monopoly and show no mercy!<br/><br/>Next to the living room is the kitchen, a gourmet cook's dream of up-to-the-minute appliances, gadgets, and all the cookware and dishes you could ask for. The breakfast bar, set with stools, encourages helpers to come keep the cook company. And the formal dining room is adjacent, a sun-drenched room with a table set for 8 beneath a modern chandelier.<br/><br/>There is a master suite on this floor too, with a king-sized bed, an HDTV, and an en suite bedroom. Slide back the glass doors and step onto the balcony, where you can see a strip of ocean and plenty of beautiful resort! The perfect place for stargazing, it also makes a lovely setting for that first cup of morning coffee.<br/><br/>The third floor contains 2 more bedrooms: yet another master, this one with both a king and a queen sofa bed, wet bar, HDTV, and bathroom; and a smaller room with a queen-sized bed. A sleeper sofa brings the total bed space to 14, with plenty of privacy for multiple couples or families traveling together!<br/><br/>Your favorite place at Sea Star Palace might just be the third-storey balcony, with its sweeping views of the resort and peekaboo glimpses of the Atlantic Ocean! From up here you can smell the salty sea air, feel the balmy breezes, and survey the entire neighborhood. Magnificent!<br/><br/>There are 5½ bathrooms in our house, and you'll find all the linens and towels you need waiting for you here, as well as a washer and dryer to keep everyone's togs clean. Spacious, immaculately clean, and beautifully decorated, Sea Star Palace is a house you'll want to explore throughout your vacation, discovering new "favorite spots" every day! <br/><br/>Best of all, it's just a hop, skip, and jump from the beach, with its wide sands and sparkling waves. This is a great shelling beach, and it's also ideal for everything from surfing to sunbathing, boogie-boarding to bocce ball. Come stay here very soon, and experience luxury livingRead more

This was a celebration for my parents 60th anniversary,with children,grandchildren and great grandchildren. We were very happy with The Sea Star Palace and management and we are planning next years vacation already.
One of our best family vacations ever. Location is perfect! Pools and beach are beautiful. Had a few issues upon arrival. Air conditioning did not work and had to call maint. 1st night. Cable didn't work, they could not come until Monday. Took a couple of calls to get correct security code for wireless. Some furniture in bad shape but overall a beautiful home and a great space for our growing family. We will definitely return to this community. So close to many great places (St. Augustine, Daytona) yet quiet and serene for a lot of relaxation.

Great location and a great place to spend the week with family. Perfect distance from the beach and club house pool. Lots of room to stretch out and relax whether at the beach or the just staying at the house. The house was just as the pictures showed so no trick photography which was awesome.

We rented the Sea Star Palace for a family vacation. We had a great view of the lake and we were one block from the beach, two pools (which included a kid's splash zone and a hot tub), a bar and grill, fitness center and game room. The house itself was very nice. The three master suites were very well appointed, and the beds were comfortable. The other two bedrooms were OK, but were not the same quality as the master suites. The house was spacious and had great amenities: 5 Hdtvs, dvd player, loaded kitchen, multiple balconies, internet access, and laundry facilities. There were a few negatives, but they did not significantly impact our stay. First, the house was not ready at check-in. We arrived at 3 pm and the cleaning crew was in the middle of cleaning, (we were told the original cleaning crew did not show up), and the property was not spotless when they left. (The vacuum cleaner works poorly.) The cleaning staff was very apologetic and they moved as fast as they could to get the house ready. Second, the heavy rain we had one night resulted in some water intrusion through a window that was not properly sealed. When we reported it the next morning, I was surprised that no one immediately came out to investigate or to dry the carpet and the wall. We used towels to soak up the water and the wall and carpet dried on their own in less than 48 hours. I am not sure if anyone ever came out to look at it, but no one came to the house during the time we were in it. Otherwise, the property manager was very responsive to the minor issues we had. Very courteous and professional. Finally, it would have been nice to have access to the garage, but the key for it did not work. Overall, it was a great experience. The Sea Star Palace and the Ocean Hammock property is very family friendly and a great spot for a family vacation. Everyone in our group would do this again (8 adults and 7 kids), and we would highly recommend the Sea Star Palace and Ocean Hammock.

After traveling from 4 am to 6:30 PM arrived to a home that had not been cleaned. However, by 9:30 they had done everything they could to make things right. The home was absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. Plenty of room for everyone. The cleaning company and the property manager did everything they possible could to make things right. Very pleased with how they handled everything.
