Why Elizabeth Lowe chose South Walton

We have been vacationing in the area for many years and love this area of the beach. Very quiet and relaxing yet close to all the activities, including the beach!

What makes this house unique

Short stroll to the neighborhood beach access, which is located right across the street. Huge front porch with view of the gulf.

Perfect house in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Laughing Gull for Spring Break this year. The house was beautiful and was very open and modern. It is so close to the beach and yet quiet! We had the entire beach to ourselves every day and that is hard to find during busy times. Elizabeth was so helpful and accommodating and a pleasure to work with! We all agree that we will be back to this house soon! It is perfectly located right in between Destin and Seaside so if you want to drive in to either area, you are only 15 minutes away tops! Great vacation!

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, away from congestion. The house is very clean and well appointed. Our needs were met, just needed more guests to fill the rooms! Easy access to the beach. The weather was too cool for bathing suits, so we enjoyed spending time on the spacious front deck.

Wonderful vacation!

This was our second year staying at Laughing Gull, and it was just as nice as the first. The spacious house is well appointed, and the beach was close, not crowded and beautiful.

Great family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed for a week with our 3 adult sons and their fiancée/girlfriends and had a great time. The view is great, it's a very short walk through a cute little path to a very unpopulated beach. The layout of all 4 BR's having their own bathrooms and doors to the front porch was perfect for 4 couples. The large common room was very conducive to family games and dinners with our friends. We used the grill and played ping pong every night. It's close to a lot of good restaurants and shops although we mostly just enjoyed the beautiful beach and entertained ourselves. The house was very clean, the kitchen well-stocked and the appliances are fantastic, especially the washer/dryer (front loaders) that made washing all the beach gear a breeze. Also, the owner was the most responsive VRBO a owner we've encountered and took the initiative to contact us before our trip (I've had to track some down in the past). Great stay--we had a blast and would stay here again!
