About The Owner

Leslie and I are parents of 2 boys (10 and 12). We love our family time together at the beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose WaterSound

Leslie and I have been traveling to the Gulf all of our lives. My parents lived in Fort Walton Beach at one point and Leslie's father grew up in Pensacola. We love this part of the country and feel that the beaches are some of the prettiest in the world. We feel that Watersound is the most unique setting along the Gulf Coast. With the Dune Preservation in the front of the community, the rolling dunes make for one of the most picturesque places we have ever seen. It truly is magical.

What makes this house unique

The privacy of our home is hard to come by along 30A. The back of home is adjacent to Deer Lake State Park, so we have no neighbors to our rear. The trees offer shade to the first floor bedrooms and porches. The sound of the birds is very soothing in the morning. We are also adjacent to a vacant lot filled with trees adding to the serene setting.

Wonderful Experience for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Payne Remedy was anything but a pain for our family vacation. (To define family, you need to know we are 3 Sisters who brought our entire families, which included children, grandchildren and those expecting children, husbands and a fiance totaling 16 ranging in age from 3 to 74.) This house managed to accommodate us all with beautifully appointed bedrooms, and lots of bathrooms with plenty of towels. We had room to find “quiet places” and lots of fun community spaces. The apartment over the garage was perfect for the new parents to settle little one down for naps.

Payne Remedy has been the most well equipped house we have ever rented. The kitchens’ two large islands with sinks and dishwashers were in constant use with sixteen starving family members. Not to mention two large fridges and one large gas range. The grill on the main deck was also part of a favorite meal night. The large laundry room met the challenge of constant use. Having an outdoor pool was fun and a way to let the little ones enjoy the water when they had had too much beach time. One of our favorite evening rituals was the upper deck where we went to enjoy the evening stars and a glass of wine, after the kids had been tucked in.

Access to the beach was a piece of cake with the golf cart and the nearby cart path. There were enough bicycles for rides to the State Park nearby and around the Sound. We had a perfect week for the beach.

Getting use to the alarm on the front door for leaving and entering took some getting use to, but everyone took it in stride, since we appreciated the fact that we had a 3 and an 8 year old and it was designed with their safety in mind. Thank you for that.

The constant comment all week was “They thought of everything!” This is hands down the most well thought-out house we have ever rented. We started doing this with our parents many years ago and have continued to honor their memory because it is a way for us to make and share more memories even though we are scattered over several cities and states.

We are already planning our next family gathering in 2018 at Payne Remedy

Perfect Home, Perfect Owners, Perfect Memories!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a blessing, and the owners were so hospitable and gracious! At the time, our family and friends needed a quick weekend beach get-away, and this House was the perfect retreat! The layout promotes family time and memories (and the kitchen is AMAZING if you love big family meals). The teenagers LOVED the private room with loft, bean bags, and flat screen. The bunk bed room was perfect for tween aged kids, and the carriage house was perfect for a family with a newborn. My favorite part of the house was the porches. The upstairs porches promote family communal time, laughs, or relaxation while surrounded by unobstructed/spectacular gulf views! The bottom floor bedrooms have private porches surrounded by the woods and were perfect for morning prayer, bible reading, and yoga. Again, we LOVED this house and were bummed when we saw it was booked this year for the time we like to travel. The only thing missing was some Saints football paraphernalia - since one of the owners is from Louisiana! ; ) So if you are looking for a great family/friend beach get-away at a house that is super close to the beautiful beaches of South Walton - Payne Remedy is the house for y'all!

Amazing House, Great Location - Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful...we have rented a lot of homes and this is by far the best equipped house we have ever stayed in. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook just about anything...the only thing I noticed was lacking was BBQ tools but it is possible we just didn't locate them.

The house is super clean and well really felt like a home versus a rental property. We had 4 kids under 5 with us and they loved exploring all the fun nooks and crannies of the house....the special spiral staircase leading to a playroom was a big hit! The views from the 4th floor are amazing.

The owner, Mary was really fantastic. Great communication before we arrived and while we were there she called to make sure we arrived safely and that everything was in order. When we mentioned that we couldn't find the iron she had one delivered via Amazon the next day!!! Fantastic!! We also had a couple days of crazy weather and Mary called to make sure we were ok....cannot thank her enough for all of her help!

Having the golf cart and the bikes was AWESOME!! We were able to get back and forth to the beach and pool so easily which was what we needed with 4 small kids.

Another great feature about Watersound is that the community pool has a grill where you can order food and drinks....the food was actually really tasty and well priced. Cesear, the man who runs the grill is super nice!

There is a pizza place at the entrance of Watersound which is easy night out in the golf cart for dinner with the kids! Other than that there aren't other restaurants in Watersound but there are so many places within a 5-10 minute drive. We cooked out a lot but also experienced some of the local restaurants (George's, Caliza, 30-A, Cowgirl Pizza) which were all pretty good. We explored Seaside, Alys Beach and Rosemary while we were there which were all fun to visit and easy to get to but we really enjoyed the peaceful vibe of Watersound and will definitely be back!

Would DEFINITELY recommend!

Absolutely wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our large family to gather. The pictures do not do the spaces justice- there is ample area for large groups to gather. The decorating is stunning, and the rain shower-heads were unbelievable! The kids had a lot of fun walking through the woods and over the board walks, the puttering park was a hit with the whole family, and the pools were kept warm for early April swimming. We would highly recommend Payne Remedy.
