Just down the road from Rosemary Beach, you'll find yourself among a gorgeous white landscape of houses in a community known as Alys Beach. Alys Beach is a luxury beach community on Florida's Gulf coast. Alys Beach is not only eye candy, but also a wonderful place to explore, wander, vacation, or live in!
The 158 acres property was purchased on a whim in the 70s by the Stephens family from Birmingham, AL. They were passing by the property and noticed it was being auctioned off, so they bought it as a retreat for their family and employees for $1.2 million. More recently, lots on the property have sold for as much as 6 million! Named after Mr. Stephens' wife, Alys Stephens, it wasn't until 2004 that ground was broken on the first 16 homes. Due to weather and a tumbling economy, the development didn't really begin until 2011 and 2012 and has grown tremendously since. It's said Alys Beach will double in size within the next three years becoming larger than Seaside, FL!
