How many new homes are available now?
Currently we have 1 spec & 3 remaining home sites to build a customized home for you! These are available now with a direct inquiry and you will see plans on our website soon! Each one has an ocean view. See neighborhood map HERE.
How many floor plans do you offer?
We build each home to look & live a little different and to be suited for the lot and the home buyer. If you are looking for something specific, contact Suzanne and she'll send you some options to get started.
What is the process to build a new home?
After we establish price range, we discuss what you want your house to be like. How many levels do you want? How many bedrooms? Do you need a garage? Media room? Covered porch? Balconies? Ocean View? Etc. Then we look at which lot would be the best option. Once you are happy with the location, we design a complimentary house plan. We then make changes as needed and fine tune once you are happy with the basics. It is then that you would place a 10% deposit and we get started with the building process. You have a solid 2+ months to select interior finishings. We invite you for walk throughs along the way. Once the house is completed, that's when you bring in the balance of 90% or complete your home loan. Then move in!
Are there resales?
Yes! There are always a handful of resales advertised at Olivia Beach. In addition we may know of others that might be coming up. We can give you the scoop on each of these. While most people like to pick out all their own options that a new home offers, we do understand falling in love with something already finished.

I'm interested in owning a vacation rental. Is this allowed and do you have a property management company available? - YES! Olivia Beach was designed to allow nightly vacation rentals. It keeps the neighborhood feeling alive year round and affords many to buy a home here that would not otherwise pencil out. While Olivia Beach was originally set up with it's own Cottage Rental Agency, the industry has become so competitive that there are now several companies that offer services. Talking with each company and getting a rental projection as well as a good feel for the service they offer is recommended. Some owners also choose to rent privately. The best source to see all available rentals is by going to VRBO.com where most everyone advertises.
Can I tour the property to see what is available?
Suzanne is our sales agents for Olivia Beach and is available by appointment 7 days a week, 9 am through dusk to show available property.
