Why Donna chose South Walton

The private beach is quiet and beautiful yet you are still close to the activity of Seaside, WaterColor, Grayton Beach and Destin. Bike/walking paths located right outside the neighborhood go for miles in each direction.

What makes this house unique

Two bike, 6 back pack beach chairs and an umbrella available as part of this rental. The 4 porches also allow you to enjoy as much outdoor living as indoor living. The screened in porches on the back of the house are fully decorated and private. The front sun porch upstairs is a great place to perfect your tan. The rocking porch downstairs is a peaceful place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Feet was the perfect getaway for us! I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, us or the dog! The house is beautiful, spacious yet cozy, and had every amenity we needed to feel right at home! With the private access to the beach right across the street and a short drive (or bike ride!) to any great dining and entertainment- it's located in the perfect spot! We had one relaxing week! We will definitely be going back!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We booked a week at Sandy Feet retreat end of May to June and could not have been happier with the rental.

Everything was as advertised and the pictures don't capture just how nice this house is. The many little details in the decorating make this a wonderful fun stay, we used all 4 porches, grilled and played games late into the evening. THe house was super clean and everything worked. The neighborhood is quiet and the walk to the beach is quick and easy. All the codes etc. worked without a hiccup.

It was out first trip to Grayton/Seaside and we will definitely be back.

We were a family of 5 (3 Adults, 2 kids (17,6)

Love this home!

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed a wonderful week away at The Sandy Feet Retreat. This home was nicely decorated and very comfortable. We loved using all 4 porches including dinner every night on the quiet, private back porch. We were also grateful that they let us bring our well-behaved bulldog. We consider her part of the family so it was important for her to be with us. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying along 30A for years and never have I found a rental that was as perfect as this wonderful home!

I truly felt like I was at HOME, nothing has been overlooked. Comfortable doesn't due this description justice. The kitchen is outfitted for someone who loves to cook! The beds are super comfortable and tons of outdoor porches for family emjoyment.

The neighborhood is a family oriented community with easy access to the private beach. Having two pools & tennis courts was an added bonus. Our family loved being 3 miles from Seaside/Watercolor. Biking along 30A was one of our favorite activities.

I can't say enough about this beautiful rental. You won't regret renting this home for your next family vacation!

Holidays in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Sandy Feet Retreat for the month of December so our family and friends could enjoy the area during the holidays. The house is nicely furnished with a Tommy Bahama vibe and the location between Seaside and Gulf Place is ideal. The neighborhood beach access is great or just a few feet down the road you have Blue Mountain Beach public beach access also. The owners of the property live in the neighborhood and are super nice and helpful. We didn't have any problems (well I needed help with the TV remote) but they are right there if needed which is a plus.
