About The Owner

We are a young family and have always enjoyed watching sunsets on every trip we take around the world. We have the most beautiful sunsets off our balcony at our beach house.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose South Walton

We built this house as a gathering place to vacation with our family and friends and knew we would be able to create many beach memories. Inlet Beach is a quiet neighborhood community perfectly located between Rosemary Beach and Panama City Beach.

What makes this house unique

Gorgeous sunsets from our house. It is nice to take a walk to the beach, and come back to the house and rinse off in the pool. Inlet Beach is great for biking and walking.

Mara Vista Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Mara Vista included 5 families. Even with 22 people the home was very spacious and each family had their own bedroom and private bathroom! The location and short walk to the private beach (even with little children) will bring me back. After spending the week on the powdery white squeaky sand beach, I see myself deciding on this part of the Florida Gulf coast rather than other areas of Florida. Being in between Panama City Beach and Destin gives you the best of everything to choose from as far as restaurants, shopping and fishing! The Kitchen appliances made me feel like I was in a state-of-the-art Kitchen! There were multiple mini fridges and a wine cooler that kept our drinks cold! Even the swimming pool and hot tub were large enough for our many kids and adults. Adrienne was very helpful and accommodating before and during our stay. We loved the Mara Vista and can't wait to go back!

Great memories, great house, great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have taken our kids and their friends to Mara Vista every year for years ! It's a beautiful home with space for everyone to spread out. Each room in the house is well maintained and beautifully decorated. Every bedroom has it's own bath. The beach is gorgeous. We made the short walk to Rosemary (a couple of blocks) everyday to hit the Sugar shack or Cowgirl Kitchen. Great bike riding path for miles. This feels like an old Florida vacation before huge condos and spring break hit this area. Love it love it!

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Mara Vista this past summer and loved it! This 3 story home is great for large families or a multiple family vacation; everyone will have plenty of room and their own space. Rarely is what you see in the pictures actually better in real life, but this was definitely the case. The home was truly perfect for our vacation with a private pool and being literally steps from the beach. It took maybe a minute from the back gate to having your feet in the soft white sand, a very easy walk we did several times a day with our two teenagers. The kids want to make this our annual vacation spot. George, the owner, was wonderful to work with in helping make sure we had a great family vacation. I highly recommend his home to anyone looking for a great beach vacation in a perfect location!

Spectacular getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family had an excellent getaway at Mara Vista! It is a beautiful spacious home. The kitchen is huge and great for entertaining. The beach is a short walk away. If you feel like chilling, the pool is excellent too. And best of all, you don't have to drive. You have shops and wonderful restaurants in Rosemary. We will definitely be going back!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a group. Lots of bedrooms which are spread out all over the three floors. The Kitchen is huge and perfect for entertaining. Two nice dens so the kids had a place to hang out as well as the adults. The balcony is a perfect place to watch the sunsets. Love the pool and pool house! You could stay there all day it has everything you need. Easy walk to Rosemary shops and restaurants if you feel like an adventure! I can't wait to go back. Very nice owners.

Huge House!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with about 10 friends. House is huge. Has high ceilings, wood/tile floors, comfortable furniture. Upstairs has the biggest shower I have ever been in. From the top floor, the views of the Ocean are great! The balcony is positioned perfectly for sunsets (try the swing). The house has a pool and a pool house too. Great place for a group. Location is great, right at 30A. Owners seemed pretty accommodating, quick to respond. I forget her name, but the woman who helped us was very friendly.
