The Rest of Me is located in Water’s Edge, a gated, upscale, Gulf-front community bordering Rosemary Beach on the Gulf side of Scenic Highway 30A. Furnished in casual elegance, with five bedrooms, two dens, and a tower room, this professionally decorated vacation home sleeps up to 16 guests. The private pool can be heated for a fee, allowing enjoyment in any season. A palm tree-lined pedestrian path leads to the neighborhood’s beach walkover just 100 yards away. Free Beach chairs/umbrella (seasonal) set up and adult bikes included in stay. With only 26 home sites and a security gate, Water’s Edge is the perfect location.

The first floor's gathering space has newly refinished wood floors, that encompass the kitchen, living and dining rooms. The living room is comfortably furnished for relaxation, and has a large HD flat panel SMART television with Sports Programming, Netflix, Pandora, and additional components for all your entertaining needs, including Blue-Ray SMART DVD player. Premium HD sports package is included! The kitchen has custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops with barstools that seat five. The dining room table seats eight, while an adjacent table has additional seating for four. A retractable screen installed at the double front door allows breezes on cool evenings. Two bedrooms are downstairs, and three on the second floor. All second floor bedrooms have access to balconies with partial Gulf views. The third floor tower room is furnished with a futon and has access to a private balcony with partial Gulf views. Small dog friendly for an additional fee.

Lined with artsy villages, coastal lakes, upscale resorts, eclectic beach bars, world-class restaurants and 25,000 acres of protected habitats, Florida's Scenic Highway 30A has something for everyone and is home to the world's most beautiful white sand beaches.

The Villages: Dune Allen - Santa Rosa Beach - Blue Mountain Beach - Grayton Beach – WaterColor - Seaside – Seagrove – Watersound - Alys Beach – Seacrest - Rosemary Beach - Inlet Beach

Just west of Dune Allen Beach, in Sandestin off Hwy 98, is the new Boulevard 10 Carmike theatre featuring (9) state-of-the-art screens and (1) over age 21 Ovation Dining Club. The Ovation Dining Club offers moviegoers a more intimate, sophisticated experience, with lush leather seating, swing around tables, a wall-to-wall movie screen with a wide selection of premium beers and wine and a full-service restaurant experience. An easy drive to the east is Panama City’s new Pier Park, a mega outdoor shopping mall consisting of over a million square feet of specialty shops, retailers, and restaurants - plus the 16-cinema Grand Theatre.

The house itself was beautiful, except, the pool was too small. I wish that the house is beach front is a little walking distance to get to the beach.

We had a wonderful stay at the Rest of Me. It was situated so conveniently to the beach, shopping, bicycle paths, yet was in a quiet, peaceful area. The house was clean, the rental staff was great, and we had no problems. The kitchen had all the necessities, there were two bikes available, and two beach chairs set up every morning. Very nice.

Overall happy with this rental and Couldn't have asked for a better location. The house itself left alot to be desired: broken door handles, wireless internet only available on one side Of the house, very used kitchen equipment, very bad foundation issues with slanting floors to the point our toddler couldn't walk straight, several showers were quite moldy, the entire decor and furniture needs updating and refreshing (it is very dated), the pool area needs landscape Maintenance, the pool furniture is quite substandard, the kitchen counters need to be redone as the grout is coming out ...overall the house needs a major overhaul.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for the feedback. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have since repaired the door handle and have spoken with housekeeping about the mold issue. They have started using a different cleaning product in the shower. The homeowner is planning updates in the fall. As you may have seen, we just re-tiled two of the showers and they are like new. We appreciate your feedback.

Reviewer Comments:

the neighborhood is great and the house itself is great. but inside the house we found that the couch cover was grimy, like it had not been cleaned in months. it felt sticky to sit on it. we had blood on our master bed spread. the kitchen was in total disarray ~ no pantry for food storage so our food had to sit on the counter all week. and the kitchen drawers were full of various items but had little organization. overall the home didn't feel very beauty. it was dark and decorated like a cabin, not a beach house.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for the feedback. We apologize for the issues during your stay and wanted to let you know that the stained comforter has since been replaced. We were informed by the homeowner that it was not a blood stain, but the stain from the bedside table that rubbed off. The sofas are cleaned regularly and the owners are considering replacing them in the fall. They will also be painting to give the home a brighter, more beachy look. The kitchen inventory has since been completed and items have been replenished. Our cleaning crews do their best to keep things organized during the busy season, but the kitchen is always cleaned out and organized during the annual deep clean. We will assess the pantry space and see if we can make space for groceries. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you will consider staying with us again after the planned changes with the paint colors and furniture.

Nice house, good location. Plenty of room for 3 families staying together. Would be helpful to have a lock box on property for keys both for use during stay by multiple occupants and for check-in and check-out.
