Beautiful and Wonderful!

This was our first trip to "30-A" and our first time finding a place online. The photos of this property don't do it justice. The Ballar's home is warm, comfortable and well-appointed. The private pool is great after the beach or as a beach alternative, but I was surprised that it is located at the front of the house next to the driveway. This wasn't bad, just unusual. The boardwalk steps down to the beach are a short walk away, and the beach seats/umbrella/table were a welcome perk.
Water's Edge community is a thin slice of heaven, directly west of the eastern edge of Rosemary Beach. In fact, a wall is shared between the two communities. You can ride your bike 2 minutes east to the Rosemary Beach town squares (one is north of 30A and the other is south) where there are great restaurants and stores. About 1/4 mile west of the place are the white, impressive arches of Alys Beach, where a food truck sells the best donuts until they are gone...sometimes as early as 9:00am!
The famous Seaside is about a 15 minute drive west. We never had a problem finding parking, and went often to eat, shop and enjoy the beach over there.
We hope to have the opportunity to return to Carribean Dream--sooner rather than later!

Owner's Response: It's always a pleasure to share 30A with someone who's never been to the area. The Water's Edge community is perfectly located next to the activities of Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach and convenient to Seaside! We have found that having our pool in the front of the house is a a real plus in terms of privacy and quiet. Also, after a day at the beach, the pool is shaded from the hot afternoon sun and extremely enjoyable in the tranquil evening hours.
