Sarayu: Spirit Wind Named after the spirit wind in the internationally beloved novel The Shack, Sarayu is located on one of the most inspired pieces of white-sand beach that 30A has to offer. Fronting approximately 80 feet of white-sand beach, Sarayu offers staggering views of Eastern Lake, a rare coastal dune lake, and the Gulf of Mexico from nearly every room. Views from the azure-blue, Gulf-front pool seem to fool the eye into believing you're on a deserted island. There are few homes on this quiet stretch of sugary sand and even fewer people. Privacy, exclusivity, space to breathe. Speaking of space, this outstanding residence features over 6,600 total square feet with room to sleep up to 26 guests. And this vacation rental par excellence has a projected gross rental income of nearly $440,000. Nothing about this gulf-front home is ordinary. The walls are lined with tongue-and-groove panels. The living room is anchored by a 72" fire-spark fireplace and a 75" television. A sitting area is nestled in front of a gallery of bay windows. The chef-inspired kitchen features an island with seating for six and a Downsview ice and utility trough for serving beverages and seafood. The superlative appliance package includes Miele, Marvel, and Hoshizaki brand appliances in the kitchen and two wet bars. Unexpected design features include motion-activated sensor lighting along the baseboards and countertops for navigation after dark. And two of the eight bedrooms combine to create a private family suite. The master suite is utterly awe-inspiring and situated in one of the home's proudest architectural features — a westward-facing rotunda. The wall of bay windows delivers uninterrupted gulf and lake views leading to an open balcony. The master closet is comprised of two walk-in closets, one of which can be locked off. A pecky cypress barn door leads to the master bathroom. Lake views can be enjoyed from the master bathroom's glass-enclosed shower or take in the gulf from the soaking tub. Outdoors, a 2,500+ square foot deck area includes a 10- x 24-foot pool, just feet from the sand along a private boardwalk with minimal steps for ease of access. Gulf-front homes on 80 feet of exclusive, white-sand beach are rare. Gulf-front homes with views of a coastal dune lake are even rarer. Inspired by the internationally beloved novel The Shack by William P. Young.
