Welcome to Adrift + Afloat in the Eastern Lake Estates community.

In between both homes you're sure to enjoy the private pool and hot tub. And with a gas grill and dining table, it’s the perfect backyard gathering space for everyone. As an added bonus, your rental includes a 6-seater golf cart and four bikes, a fantastic amenity that allows you to explore the scenic surroundings at your own pace, adding an extra layer of enjoyment to your coastal getaway.

2ND Floor: All 3 bedrooms (1 queen, 2 kings) upstairs have TVs, private bathrooms, and balconies. The king master suite features a private bathroom with soaker tub and separate shower, plus access to a larger, private balcony. A great spot to enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning.

Afloat – Carriage House (Sleeps 6)
On the other side of the pool, you'll find "Afloat" - the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom carriage house for "Adrift".

1ST Floor:
The full kitchen includes a gas range and plenty of cabinets for storage. Sit 3 at the counter and an additional 4 at the dining table. You’ll enjoy relaxing in the open concept area with lots of natural light. Bedroom 1 includes twin-over-twin bunks and a private bathroom. Bedroom 2 includes a queen bed, seating area, private bathroom, and patio access. The oversized chair in the seating area can be converted into a twin if needed.

2ND Floor:
Take the spiral staircase upstairs to the master retreat. Bedroom 3 is the full 2nd level of the home with queen bed, private bathroom, reading nook, wet bar, and access to the balcony. Take advantage of this space to sit back and soak up the Florida sunshine. Head down the steps to the cozy shaded little backyard with a gas grill and access the private pool between both homes.

Golf Cart Included:
We are thrilled to include a golf cart with your rental through our partnership with Vacayzen. This gas-powered, 6-seater golf cart is fully street legal and makes getting around hassle-free. You now have one less thing to worry about as you plan out your 30A vacation with Benchmark Management.

Missing Adrift and Afloat in Santa Rosa beach already!!!!!

by Kath Schaal

5 of 5

What an amazing house. We stayed there for a womens bible study retreat and what a treat it was. This house with carriage house is absolutely one in a million. Plenty of room to spread out still with ample space to gather for time together. Private pool and only very very short walk to beach. House very very clean and beautifully decorated with every amenity available. Very short distance to fantastic restaurants. I’ve stayed at many houses over the years on 30A and this one is top of list. Must stay to truly appreciate. Definitely would stay again !!!!

Davis family vacation 2023

by Murfreesboro Tn

5 of 5

We loved this house! Each bedroom had a bathroom which is definitely a plus. No one had to share. The kitchen was stocked well. We did a lot of cooking during our stay. The two screened in porches were amazing. The outside area was great with a pool and sitting area. The landscaping was nice and provided some privacy. Location to shops and restaurants was good. The only downside was the beach access. The closest access was flooded and we had to wade across the lake to reach the beach. Not easy with kids and beach equipment. Obviously this is out of anyone’s control so this is not a complaint for the house but was an issue for us. The other access was much farther away. When on vacation you go with the flow literally. We had a fun time !! 5 stars for this house

Response from Benchmark Management

Thanks for staying with us at this property. We are so happy to hear that you loved the house and how it is structured. Thanks also for highlighting the kitchen as we try to ensure that it is stocked with with glasses, dishes, and utensils, as well as basic cookware. We are also delighted that you loved the amenity of the pool and the proximity of the property to local shops and restaurants. We are sorry to hear that the beach access was flooded during your stay, as you mentioned; it is beyond our control. We are happy that despite this situation; you were able to have fun. We truly hope we can welcome you again soon for another lovely vacation experience! Regards, Benchmark Management

My husband and I stayed at this property for our first friend reunion (our family and several couples with kids) and LOVED the layout of this house!!! We all felt really pleased with our rooms. The screened in front porch area was a HIT for the toddlers who loved laying on the swing bed - especially on the days that it rained. There was so much space that we could enjoy our coffee, all have a comfortable place to sit and let the kids run around without being worried about things being knocked over. The huge sliding glass doors were incredible and we had them open most days. We all loved the heated pool and all of the covered /shaded outdoor areas. We also enjoyed just being at the rental on the days it rained - which at some rentals can be a drag but not at all here. The pool area is brand new and very clean. The rooms were quite large and the bathrooms were really spacious and clean as well. We also didn’t hear any noise from the other rooms and some of our friends had kids as well. We all slept great and the beds were really comfortable. On the days we did go to the beach, the walk was not far at all and the side gate entrance with the private outdoor shower was amazing!! We could come back, clean off the sand in the shower, leave all the beach things outside to dry and not bring any of it indoors, and not have to drag it up or down any stairs. The coffee bar was a great touch and used daily, the kitchen had everything we needed and the house adjusted well to whatever we set the thermostat too. Publix was maybe a ten minute drive away too which was clutch for all of us. I truly don’t have any complaints about this stay!! There’s lots of private seating areas too for the adults to escape to for a quiet moment (like to read a book in peace) without being too far away from the group. Even the bike ride is literally a straight shot down 30a to seaside (maybe 15-20 minutes) and we did it several times. WE WILL BE BACK! We will be keeping this place in mind for our own family gatherings in the future! A gem!! Five stars!!

Comfortable and Clean With Lots of Great Spaces to Relax

by Daniel

5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the adrift/afloat property. It was comfortable and clean with lots of great spaces to relax, play games, eat and catch up with friends. The convenient location allowed us to easily get to the beach as well as restaurants like the old florida fish house and the great southern. The real star of this property was the pool. We vacationed with friends and had 11 kids in total in our party. The kids absolutely loved the very private pool and large pool deck for playing. There was also plenty of room for the adults to relax and talk or grill around the pool. All around 5 star property, we WILL book and return to adrift/afloat again!

The house was excellent. Well-laid out (a push to fit 20 people overnight), great location, lots of great outdoor space, excellent A/C. Kitchen not stocked great and the maintenance was disappointing but still enjoyed our stay very much.

Response from Benchmark Management

Wonderful week

by Davenport IA

4 of 5

Once we figured out the code issue because of some confusion about keypad/keys we were able to manage all the little things that came along . Our family is very handy when it comes to DIY things. I shared any problems with the management when we got there. We would recommend this place to anyone with a big family because there are 2 buildings on the property. Thanks again,CB

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for choosing to stay at Adrift + Afloat for your vacation. We're glad that your week was wonderful. Please come again! Benchmark Management
