About Missy Ward

We are originally from Peru, Indiana and have lived all over the United States. We fell in love with the beautiful white sands of the Emerald Coast and eventually settled down in Niceville, Florida where we currently reside with our two children.

Missy Ward purchased this house in 2014

Why Missy Ward chose Seagrove Beach

Cassine Village is a unique neighborhood that has great amenities and is close to the beach and beautiful nature/fitness trails. The back of our property overlooks a beautiful cypress grove and is very private. You can also walk or ride your bike to fantastic shops and restaurants on highway 30A. Our home is conveniently located just 27 miles from Northwest Florida Beaches International airport. Cassine Village is located between Seaside and Rosemary beach and is close to unique coastal lakes that are only found in four other places in the world.

What makes this house unique

We built the Lily Pad in 2014 and handpicked all the furnishings. We absolutely love the view of the cyprus grove from our screened in back porch where you can hear the sound of the surf on quiet evenings. The swing on the front porch was hand made by us from an antique door and antique bed and is a great place to sit and greet our friendly neighbors.

Cozy Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a lovely beach cottage!!!! The house is well decorated with many perks such as beach chairs, bikes, and hair dryers. It even has an amazing porch swing on the front porch as well as a private screened-in porch in the back. There are two community pools, and it is a quick walk to the public beach. The owner takes pride in her rental and is happy to answer any questions in regards to the property. I highly recommend this property for a cozy stay at the beach!

The home was beautifully appointed, spotless clean and just a perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three couples: the property was perfect for our needs. Close to the beach, an awesome pizza place and convenient to all the main attractions. We enjoyed the beach chairs provided and the umbrella!

Best girls' trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Lily Pad is a true home away from home! So much bigger than pictures show. We were expecting the place to be a bit smaller than it looked in the photographs (just because that's usually how it seems to go) but we were blown away. The Lily Pad has all the amenities you could ask for- great dishware and cookware/ cooking utensils, a wine fridge, nice appliances, surround sound system, comfortable beds (the sleeper sofa is incredibly comfortable as well)- not to mention, it's so well decorated- lovely art and tons of comfy throws and pillows throughout. Six girlfriends and I booked the place for three nights and when we weren't laying out on the beach which is just a quick walk away or dancing at Rum Runners at Baytowne Warf , we had the best time lounging, drinking, and laughing around the Lily Pad. The owner, Missy, was so helpful and accommodating- always prompt and courteous with any questions we had. We enjoyed our stay so much that we arranged last minute to stay another night for which Missy graciously cut us a deal! Such a great experience! We will definitely be back at the Lily Pad!

Amazing Race Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our mini-weekend was fabulous! We were there for the Seaside Half Marathon/5K race. The Lily Pad Cottage is absolutely adorable! As a matter of fact, I want to build a cottage just like this as my forever home! Very accurate to the description listed - great location, amazing cottage layout, and all the amenities you would ever need! The property was clean as a whistle and very well maintained! Missy, the owner, was very helpful and quick to respond to us with any questions. We look forward to more stays at the Lily Pad!!

Stunning, Still Speechless!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I rented this for a post- Christmas pre- Mardi Gras retreat. We imagined ourselves crafting next to the fireplace with our Irish coffees, pampering ourselves in the afternoons, and heading out early in the evenings to enjoy the local scene- and that is exactly what we did. The home is centrally located but also very private and when I say it is stocked- I mean STOCKED twice over! Absolutely the most gratifying and fulfilling getaway we have ever booked in the area- which we frequent. I even wound up being slightly ill the first day of our trip and thoroughly enjoyed hanging around that day as well- now that is saying something! The owner was an absolute pleasure and joy- exceptionally thoughtful, efficient, and communicative! The affordable price is completely irrelevant to our satisfaction when compared to all of these other aforementioned values that come with the home. You won't regret staying here and instead will probably want to return over and over again! Thanks again Missy!
