About Heather Mason

This house was built with our own hands (and those of family and friends) in 2003 and it was our home until life relocated us to the Pensacola area in 2012. To us, this will always be our home, and we try to maintain all the amenities that will allow you to feel just as comfortable here as we do. We love this area for all of the outdoor activities available. There is kayaking in one or more of the many dune lakes unique to this area, biking along the almost 20 mile bike path that runs along highway 30-a, or hiking the many state park trails in Point Washington, Grayton, or Topsail. Oh! Let's not forget the most beautiful beaches in the country! We enjoy all of the activities the area has to offer and we hope you will too.

Heather Mason purchased this house in 2003

Why Heather Mason chose South Walton

This house was built on family land in 2003 as our primary home. Its nearest neighbors are my family, and with native American heritage on both sides of my lineage, this is as close to a true Florida native home as you can get.

What makes this house unique

The house is nestled on a private lot surrounded by beautiful gnarly old growth pines, maintained as native landscaping, but only 2 blocks from the Gulf of Mexico. It has a custom additional outdoor, cedar shower, large custom decks in both the front and back yards, and a grill pavilion (the 'Grivilion'). The inside contains all the comforts of home: a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable living room, spacious bathroom, and full laundry room. Around the corner on 30-A are an array of shops, restaurants, bars, and of course, the beach!

Beautiful and quite setting.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation spot. Close to the beach and walking /riding trails. The outdoor shower was the best. It made getting ready after a long day relaxing. The outdoor sitting/dining areas were perfect for just sitting. Loved using the Grilling area, made some wonderful meals there. If you want to get lost at the beach, this is your destination.

Such a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here and enjoyed our time very much! This house is co cute and cozy and is stocked with just about anything you could possibly need. Its location is perfect - at the end of a quiet street surrounded by a wooded area. There is a nice big backyard with a tall fence and lots of privacy. It's only a few minutes walk from the beach. The owner Heather is so great, and was super helpful throughout the entire booking process! Whenever we are in the area next time we will definitely stay here again!

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. This house exceeded expectations! Pictures do not do it justice!!!! So clean...So well stocked (lacked nothing!)The location was excellent..near Grayton Beach, Seaside, Big Daddy's Bike shop and Goatfethers Restaurant. We love to bike 30A! The grill was fabulous and the back yard was perfect for our dogs. The 2 decks..front and back were a great place to relax! We especially enjoyed the outside shower! A very quiet neighborhood and a great piece of property. Thanks Heather!!!!

Would not think of staying anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I have been coming to Destin and 30A for quite some time now, but since finding Heather and The Lilith Pad we never look at other rentals anymore. We have a large dog so finding a suitable place isn't easy and with the fenced back yard we all get to enjoy vacation! This place is like our second home(we wish it was) the location is perfect, close to it all ,yet you can avoid the traffic and crowds. I can't say enough about how nice Heather is and how perfect this home is! We are planning our spring trip now for a whole month and can't wait!!

Perfect bungalow to rent on 30A

  • 5 of 5

I rented this bungalow with my girlfriends to celebrate my 60th birthday. It met and certainly exceeded my expectations! I'll start with the owner Heather! She was so helpful before we arrived but topped it all when we get there and find an amazing birthday surprise! Thanks Heather!!

The house was completely stocked from everything you needed in the kitchen to all the necessary towels and linens including beach towels. We certainly enjoyed the outdoor shower! It was perfect when the four of us would arrive back from the beach each afternoon! Walking distance to several restaurants and the beach! We walked to Big Daddy's to rent bikes (awesome people there!!) and biked to dinner at The Red Bar, Goatfeathers and to breakfast at Another Broken Egg Cafe! We loved that the cottage was secluded and quiet! Enjoyed the front and the back decks for our early morning coffee and exercise routine! I would highly recommend the rental of this cottage to small groups wanting to visit Santa Rosa Beach! It was a memorable and quite enjoyable 60th birthday!!

Amazing, secluded hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are 30-A locals who were preparing for a big move to Alaska as well as our wedding. We needed to be out of our apartment and the movers had taken all of our stuff so we didn't even have a pot to pee in! Finding a place that accepts big dogs was also a necessity. This was such a welcome relief. The owner was so easy to deal with/book with and always responsive. She has a great personality and customer service skills. We had such a memorable time staying here and hanging out with family and friends who stopped in to hang with us on the GIANT DECK!!! We grilled delicious food at the Grivillion. We drank. We laughed. We asked if the place was for sale! Ha! If you want something off the beaten path, but close to the action on 30-A this is a must see. Amazing place with decks, yard, outdoor shower. THE WORKS. Thank you for providing us a home away from home! We can't wait to stay again this summer.

If the shops and restaurants of 30-A aren't an attraction enough, we're 2 blocks from the Blue Mountain Beach access to the emerald coast Gulf of Mexico and sugar white sands.
