About Darrell

Love to travel, have been to 49 states and dozens of countries.

Darrell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Darrell chose South Walton

Our Crossings property has the highest level finishes in Water Sound, plus an unobstructed 3rd floor view, and is one of the few properties in the Crossing with an extremely large balcony deck, which is really nice for outdoor seaside dining and large get-together.

What makes this condo unique

Lots of great community features including free 18 hole putting green, miles of hiking trails, a half-dozen beautiful boardwalks, a great health/fitness club, and great beach vegetation and wildlife.

Watersound

  • 5 of 5

This unit is fantastic. This is our 3rd stay at Watersound and this was the best by far. The 3rd floor layout is excellent for families and the patio with continous views and outdoor dining is the best. Like most all the Crossings condos, the finishes and kitchen were great. The kitchen was stocked with all the equipment you could want. The location is perfect right by both the main pool and boardwalk to beach. The carport held a large SUV and paddle board along with 4 very nice beach bikes provided with the unit. Would highly recommend!

WaterSound Was Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to this general area for over 15 years and Inspiration was by far, the nicest, most beautiful place we have ever stayed! The owners were easy and wonderful to go through and made sure everything went well. We loved bringing our own bikes down and were able to store them in the garage provided with this unit...a big plus!! We also rented Yolo boards and were able to store them in the garage as well, along with all pool and beach items! It was so convenient not to bring all items up to the unit after a walk to the pool or beach. WaterSound was just beautiful and we enjoyed using the lake nearby to paddle board when the Gulf was too rough...another great option! We have an adult son in a wheelchair and this unit was great for easy accessibility to the beach via the boardwalks. The scenery was simply beautiful and we loved the boardwalks to walk around the property and see the lakes, homes, and sand dunes. We even saw a bald eagle circling overhead as we were paddle boarding in the lake. Bike riding along 30A, visiting the Hub, paddle boarding, and the beach were all perfect and very convenient! Great memories made and we plan to book this exact place again!! Don't miss the evening sunsets from the bridge to the beach!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Inspiration!!

The Condo is beautiful, the views are amazing, and the surrounding area is luxurious. We especially enjoyed the huge outdoor fireplace by the pool, firewood and chairs are provided. We spent many late nights staying warm by the crackling fire , hearing the crash of the waves and gazing at the stars! We also enjoyed riding bikes around Watersound and the bike paths on 30A. Only suggestion, it would be nice to have a bridge to walk over the tidal inlet.

Hope we can return again soon!

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

Went with my family and my sister's family. Total of 4 adults and 5 kids and we all fit really well. The pictures really do not show how beautiful this place is. Really clean and every appliance is nice and new. Very private beach... We literally were the only ones on the beach as far as you could see most days. I would not recommend renting the beach chairs though bc they come and take them away every day at 5 pm, just when we were starting to enjoy them. Just bring your own chairs if you like to stay on the beach till late. The only problem we had while staying was the elevator stop working halfway through the week and wasn't fixed promptly, so we had to lug all our bags and sweat the last day. Other than that this place is amazing!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The place was breathtakingly beautiful. You couldn't ask for more. It is also well thought out. Everything you need is there, right down to extra pillows. There is also something called 'the Hubb' that has a good selection of restaurants within walking distant. I was also very pleasantly surprised how the fish are coming back after the spill. I even saw a young sea turtle!

I will be back
