Nancy, our son Gray, and Peter

Peter Bauer purchased this house in 2008

There are many reasons we chose to build our vacation home at WaterSound. Aside from the great beaches, weather, restaurants, and 30A culture, the area we are in is like living in a nature preserve, very peaceful and with lots of open space.

Time spent at our house is time enjoying the beauty and comfort of the house itself, great walks in nature, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, great meals cooked at home or in the many local restaurants, and meeting interesting people from all over.

Beautiful house. Not on beachfront but nice walk to beach. Quiet neighborhood not busy with tourists. House has everything you would need and then some. Very nice bikes come with house. Beach club not necessary but very nice add on. Guests will need car. Matching master sites great for girls trips. Third bedroom has two twin beds that are very comfortable!! Fourth bedroom has pull out sofa. Every room has very nice bathroom attached. You will not find a nicer house on 30A for price. If you have small children do beach club and use car to drive there.

A Really Beautiful Home

If you are entertaining at the beach or want a place to take your family for the holidays this would be a great home for that kind of stay. We've stayed in South Walton for the last six years on our summer holiday. Usually we go to either Watersound or Blue Mountain Beach. The resort itself is very high end, the service is impeccable. (Pay for the beach club. Fantastic food and drink. Danny and Dave will see to it that you never want to go home.) Generally we do not have concierge service, which was available with this property. I appreciate the owner offering the service and they were there to greet us when we reached the door. The pros for this house are, it really is incredibly beautiful. The kitchen has won awards and with good reason. While it is not large, it FEELS large due to the open concept living area. The house is full of natural light and very soothing with miles of covered porch and decks with comfortable chairs. The master suite we stayed in had a very comfortable bed, nice linens, beautiful art and a ceiling fan that was whisper quiet. (Might not seem important but in a house with vaulted ceilings it counts for a great deal!) The owner left a few things for us to use in the pantry. (I truly appreciate not having to run out and buy every spice in creation when I am on vacation so that I can cook!) Also, the wine cooler was a very nice touch. The bathrooms, all of them, were high end, modern and spotless. The 'family' bathroom off the media room is remarkable and was deemed the favorite by my 24 year old daughter who claimed it quickly. There is shaded parking under a pergola covered space. The owner was easy to deal with and communicated regularly. He also checked to make sure we had arrived and were comfortable. The only additional information I think I traveler should have is that this house is not beachfront and three new homes have now been built partially blocking the view. The owner did tell us that there were houses there so the view had changed before we rented. The walk to the beach is five minutes (we timed it and were moving at a good clip). If beachfront is not important to you then rent this home before anything else at Watersound. Take your family and enjoy a great stay.

Great vacation base

We had two families who stayed in the house in late July. This was our first visit to WaterSound, though we had been to other nearby properties in the past. We really enjoyed the home and found the community as a whole to be a great place to unwind. The owner was always quick to answer questions and called to check on us after we arrived to make sure we were settling in well. This house is located close to the lake, which was great for us as we took the kids fishing and crabbing several times while we were there. The nearest pool was also perfect for us, it wasn't crowded and we could take our lunch goods down to the adjacent pool house and then use the kitchen to prepare lunch. We usually packed our trucks and drove the short drive to the pool, rather than walking. Then we left some things at the pool while we went down to the beach, and then came back to the pool before heading back to the house. We felt comfortable letting our kids ride bikes and explore around the neighborhood of nice homes. At the house, all the decks were great for some "away" time late in the day or early in the morning, and our kids found the downstairs living area to be a good spot to get away from the parents while we visited in the upstairs kitchen/dining area. We all left earlier than we wanted to and had a great time in this beautiful home.

Perfect Family Vacation

My family stayed here for a week last summer and had a wonderful time. The house was accurately shown on the web site and it was very comfortable for the adults as well as the kids. The owners have created a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the scenery of the dunes and Gulf. We all loved Watersound and hope to return next year.

Spring Break 2011

My family and I traveled to Florida from Oklahoma and were thoroughly pleased when we arrived at the house in Water Sound. It had beautiful views, comfortable rooms and it was really quiet...the perfect break from our schedule at home. The owners were gracious and allowed us to use everything! The bikes were great fun and we even joined the club for the week so we could enjoy the pool and club house for meals. It was a perfect get-away.
