About Missy Ward

We are originally from Peru, Indiana and have lived all over the United States. We fell in love with the beautiful white sands of the Emerald Coast and eventually settled down in Niceville, Florida where we currently reside with our two children.

Missy Ward purchased this house in 2014

Why Missy Ward chose Cassine Gardens

Cassine Village is a unique neighborhood that has great amenities and is close to the beach and beautiful nature/fitness trails. The back of our property overlooks a beautiful cypress grove and is very private. You can also walk or ride your bike to fantastic shops and restaurants on highway 30A. Our home is conveniently located just 27 miles from Northwest Florida Beaches International airport. Cassine Village is located between Seaside and Rosemary beach and is close to unique coastal lakes that are only found in four other places in the world.

What makes this house unique

We built the Lily Pad in 2014 and handpicked all the furnishings. We absolutely love the view of the cyprus grove from our screened in back porch where you can hear the sound of the surf on quiet evenings. The swing on the front porch was hand made by us from an antique door and antique bed and is a great place to sit and greet our friendly neighbors.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The best place we have ever stayed in. Very clean, comfortable,quiet and great for people that are handicapped. The neighborhood was great, neighbors were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend The Lily Pad to everyone. Have never enjoyed a vacation more than this time. Will absolutely return. Missy is a very outstanding person who was always available for any assistance.

The Lily Pad was a wonderful base!

  • 5 of 5

The Lily Pad really made our vacation. What a wonderful base it was. While the weather wasn’t great the week we vacationed in Florida, the Lily Pad was. Beautifully appointed, featuring art from local artists and top quality appliances, it sits in a lush, quiet neighborhood just minutes from the white powdery beach. It is inviting, clean, comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Just bring in the food, and we were good to go. We ate in daily, cooking or grilling out on the Weber grill provided. Our griller even became friendly with the neighbor next door. We enjoyed meals and just hanging out in the large screened-in porch located off the main living area. In the evening, movies on the big screen TV were nice too.

But the cloudy days didn’t keep us inside. We also enjoyed riding the bikes provided as well as using the beach chairs, umbrella, and cart to carry them to the beach. It was so nice to have all this available for our use. Missy, the owner, was friendly, helpful and readily available. We weren’t disappointed in following her suggestion to see the State Parks close by, Grayton Beach, Deer Lake, and Eden Gardens. Going to these State Parks was a must for us. We also stumbled upon another must, The Shard Shop in Grayton Beach. What fun we had creating our own glass art picture. It’s the best souvenir and serves as a reminder of the glass art hanging in our special Lily Pad.

Thanks Missy, for providing such a perfect vacation house!

Gorgeous Home! Loved every minute...

  • 5 of 5

I've been meaning to write this review, and finally found the time! We absolutely LOVED everything about the Lily Pad. We came as a family and there were 8 of us. The house was completely equipped for everything we needed. I cant think of anything it was missing. Its a beautiful house and everything was so clean. The decorations are straight out of Country Living magazine. The screened in back porch was so wonderful to relax in, in the mornings and afternoons especially. It was only a 5 minute or so walk to the beach, flat the whole way, which was doable even for our grandma that was with us. Overall, it was the best VRBO that we've ever stayed at and it even FAR exceeded homes we've stayed at that were managed by rental companies. The owners were just a text or call away and are more than wonderful as well. We cant wait to come back and stay again!!! Dreaming of this place all the time. :)

A Young Family Favorite

  • 5 of 5

I'm extremely late to write this review, but only realized I hadn't written one when I was looking to book our next trip to Lily Pad. My husband and two kids (6 and 2 years old) stayed at the Lily Pad over Memorial Day week 2014 and had the perfect and most enjoyable week! The home is beautiful, clean and beyond well-appointed, the community is great, the short walk/bike ride to the beach was easy (even with two small kids). Rain days... no problem... the house has plenty of games and many of the locations nearby to shop and eat are rain friendly. Furthermore, the owners are well attuned to making sure their guests enjoy their time. During our stay there were some local communications outages because of some heavy rains... the owners went out of their way to make sure the satellite television came back on so that our kids could enjoy their early morning cartoons! Now, almost a year later, I asked my 6 (almost 7-year old) where he'd like to go on vacation this summer and his immediate answer was "the Lily Pad beach house in Florida!" We look forward to another wonderful week there this summer!

Fantastic Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, cousin and her husband stayed at the Lily Pad this summer for a week. It was amazing and the house was perfect! Missy was so helpful before and during our stay, guiding us on what to do and see before we came, and she was always available for last minute questions. The house is immaculate and very stylish, plus has attached bathrooms and queen beds. Having the bikes, chairs, noodles for the pool and additional amenities was a huge help so we didn't have to hassle with renting. Overall, we would definitely stay here again - no complaints. It was a perfect vacation home and we can't wait to come back!

p.s. we were hesitant to stay in Seagrove, as opposed to Seaside, because we didn't know if it would be as fun or as nice - we liked it better! It is better suited for adults who just want to relax. Still family friendly, but we felt more comfortable in Seagrove than Seaside.

A Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

The Lily Pad was a great place to spend a long weekend. The house was very comfortable. We did not feel like anything was missing. We cooked two meals and prepared a lot of snacks in the home and there wasn't anything missing in the kitchen. We were very comfortable in the evenings watching DVDs (provided!) in the family room. The swing on the front porch was great to sit in the mornings while everyone got their things together for the day's adventures. The bedrooms were very comfortable with extra blankets. Both bathrooms had blow dryers. The washer/dryer were put to use for a load and were great. We used the rafts in the pool and used the provided grill for dinner one evening. The owners have thought of everything to make you feel as if you are at home. The owners were also very easy to work with. They answered all of our questions promptly and even answered a question that we had during our stay.

We found plenty of things to do near the Lily Pad as well. There are two pools within walking distance. On the busiest day (a Saturday) that we were there, we had to share a pool with four people. It was really quiet! We walked to the beach at least once every day. It has easy, close by, public access. The beaches are clean and have really soft white sand. We found plenty of places to eat within walking distance. We went to Flip Flops and the Perfect Pig. There were food trucks, a good coffee shop (Amavida), ice cream shops and shopping within 5 minutes drive at Seaside. We enjoyed a farmer's market Sunday morning at Rosemary Beach (10 minutes drive from the Lily Pad). We also went out for a couple of runs around Cassine Village. There is a nice boardwalk/trail that can be accessed from the neighborhood. You could stay at the Lily Pad with a bike rental and not even need a car.

We had a great time at the Lily Pad and would highly recommend it!
