day 1.

The Pointe on 30a.

The Pointe has a crisp Mediterranean appeal showcasing gorgeous white and silver tones with natural wood accents throughout the property.

First Impressions are Everything.

Upon arrival, our view from the welcome center was the stunning 61,000 gallon resort style pool and cabanas.

The water was perfect for both day and evening swims.
The cabanas are so incredibly comfortable.


Across from the pool you'll find the La Cava lounge, a relaxing spot to catch the game poolside. With four large screen televisions, it's an aficionado's dream.

Who's Winning?

Next to the lounge, and also poolside, is Pure Fitness Center with state of the art equipment to keep your health goals on point while traveling.

Room with A View.

Upon entering our unit, the view of the pool was spectacular. Music plays throughout the day and evening providing a posh and trendy atmosphere.

Room with a View
Such a Beautiful Day for a Swim


The units are stunning with modern furnishings, beautiful flooring and state of the art stainless appliances. Contemporary barn style doors leading to the bedroom are a stylish added touch to the design and overall elegance of the unit.

Comfort is King
Such a Unique Feature

The unique peep through window with wooden plantation shutters adds a touch of whimsy and style.

Beds are outfitted with luxurious sheets and ample soft pillows providing a restful night's sleep.

Fine Dining.

Excitement is building around the grand opening of two on site restaurants; Big Bad Breakfast, opening this spring, and Little Donkey, coming in 2018. Both will offer superb dining experiences.

So excited to try these restaurants!

Ultra modern appliances in each unit will beckon your inner chef. Naan pizzas with Roasted Onion & Fig Jam, Smoked Ham and Italian Buffalo Mozzarella garnished with Balsamic Pearls, easily prepared in the unit, brings new meaning to enjoying a pizza at the beach.

Delicious Pizza at the Beach

Add a Greek Salad and dinner is complete.

Fresh ingredients can be found within biking distance of The Pointe.

The true definition of relaxation is being afforded the options of on-site dining as well as the ability to prepare delicious meals in the comfort of your unit. No car keys or Uber required.

A Restful & Quiet Night.

A Little Sweet Indulgence Before Bedtime

day 2.

A Beautiful Morning.

Smoked Salmon Quesadillas

A beautiful morning calls for a beautiful breakfast. This particular morning served us Smoked Salmon Quesadillas with Cilantro, Charred Corn, Spicy Remoulade, and a side of Delta Rice Grits. Preparing meals in the unit allows for a second cup of coffee at your leisure and a little extra pajama time.

Breakfast with A View

Poolside Rejuvenation.

Nothing can do more to restore one's soul than uninterrupted hours to read a book, take a long nap, enjoy a cocktail or two and simply bask in the sun.

A Grand Affair.

A Day of Indulgence

Breakfast came again from our beautiful kitchen outfitted with everything we needed to create decadent Crab Cakes with a Spicy Thai Crema, Charred Corn and Crisped Fingerling Potatoes. It was another gorgeous day poolside and as we took our last bite of breakfast, decided on one more cup of coffee.

Grilling in Paradise.

Charcuterie & Cheese Fits Every Occasion

The Pointe offers guests a spectacular, expertly equipped grilling area. With four state-of-the-art gas grills, everyone can enjoy a delicious steak, or superbly grilled seafood.

Burrata with Salted Caramel Peach Preserves
Mediterranean Grilled Chicken, Balsamic Blistered Tomatoes and Lemon Flavored Asparagus were Divine for Dinner
Luxurious Accommodations and All of the Comforts of Home
Burrata with Olive Oil, Balsamic Pearls and Crushed Pink Peppercorns
Escargot with Black Garlic Butter made a Decadent First Course
Marinated Skirt Steak with Guiness Caramelized Onions, Truffle Whipped Potatoes and Crusty Grilled Garlic Bread was a Perfect Pairing with Idle Cellars Sangiovese
A Delicious Bottle of Wine, $25. Two Perfectly Grilled Steaks, $30. Spectacular View...Priceless.
An Evening isn't Complete Without a Grilled Smores Trifle and a Chocolate Shot of Cinnamon Rum Cream for Dessert.

After Dinner Delight.

After dinner, the poolside fireplace is a perfect spot for an exquisite nightcap followed by a moonlight swim. The Pointe offers all of the ingredients for a sublime evening.

We couldn't resist one last moonlight swim on such a magnificent evening.
The Pointe is stunning in the evenings with the majestic palms overlooking the billowing linen wraps of the cabanas.
It was even more beautiful from the hot tub ;)
One last quiet conversation by the fire before turning in for the night.
