This welcoming destination is situated in the heart of South Walton County right off of Highway 30A and includes the best of bridges, trails, beaches and community features that make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive. Many of our Watersound rentals offer up spacious floorplans ranging from studios to 4+ bedroom residences designed to be enjoyed. Guests are often thrilled to find that many of these same floorplans enjoy open concept designs making it easier than ever to transition from social spaces to bedrooms that double as an oasis of privacy and comfort. The overall feeling of space is only enhanced in many of these properties in large part thanks to sprawling windows that allow for generous light flow during the daytime hours and keep the focus on a fantastic view at all times of the day and night.
Guests will savor the use of a collection of tasteful furnishings that are often added to highlight coastal-inspired style with touches of nautical décor incorporated throughout. Inviting sofas, loveseats, armchairs, area rugs, and coffee tables are frequently found finishing our properties and providing just the right balance between comfort and style. Combined with inspired wall art and interior décor, it’s easy to feel right at home from the moment guests step through the front door. From vaulted ceilings to sprawling patios with amazing views, we’re happy to help our guests book that one of a kind Watersound vacation home they’ve been hoping for. Outdoor activity and lounging spaces provide just the right place to wake up each day and enjoy the sights with a cup of coffee in hand or make the most of settling in with a spectacular sunset in the evening hours.
No matter what property you select, you’ll be easily able to share vacation photos at the touch of a button thanks to wi-fi access during your stay. This connection point also means that guests can keep up to date with the latest headlines whenever they’re in the mood to do so or could enjoy a tranquil night in streaming their favorite shows on large flat-screen televisions too. When you aren’t out enjoying the local restaurant scene, your Watersound beach rentals will likely host a full kitchen, perfect for serving up breakfast, lunch or dinner. As an added convenience to the many traveling chefs that book a stay in our Watersound vacation homes, many of these culinary spaces are adorned with modern appliances in combination with spacious countertops and cabinetry filled with cookware and utensils ready to be used at a moment’s notice.
Planning for a Pet-Friendly Getaway
At Paradise Properties, we’re passionate about the area and customers we serve and understand that some trips to 30A just aren’t complete without enjoying the experience with a canine companion at your side. When this is the case, be sure to let us know! We’re happy to help our guests book a Watersound stay that comes complete with those pet-friendly extras that take a trip to the next level of convenience.
The Best of 30A
From private pools and hot tubs to boardwalks and private beaches, your Watersound vacation home is likely to tempt you to linger. However, making the most of a stay along 30A includes getting out and exploring too! When you’re here, be sure to find some time on the itinerary to take a sunset cruise on Lake Powell with the team at Salt Air. This coastal dune lake experience is truly spectacular and promises to be an unforgettable journey through breathtaking landscapes.
Hoping to incorporate a touch of artistic inspiration into your travels? Head over to The Blue Giraffe on Emerald Coast Parkway in nearby Inlet Beach. This fun and quirky arts and crafts shop is a great place to spend some time browsing or pick up that one of a kind souvenir you’ve been searching for. From cards and envelopes to jewelry and paintings, there’s no shortage of inspiring options to admire.
Visitors to 30A who have a passion for wildlife, and love bird watching in particular, will find that this stretch of scenic coastline is brimming over with options for incredible observation. 30A is home to a variety of year-round seabirds, but is also directly in the path of migration for a long list of winged creatures as well. It’s estimated that this area welcomes upwards of 200 species of birds, meaning the chances of catching a glimpse of everything from an osprey to a great horned owl is good when you’re visiting. Inlet Beach is a great place to settle in for a day of bird spotting while Grayton Beach State Park is the place to be if you’re hoping to catch sight of a bald eagle or two—the numbers of which are wonderfully on the rise in the state of Florida.
If you’re the type of traveler that enjoys combining fantastic flavors with your outdoor adventure, 30A is well known and loved for its many breweries that are worth savoring and exploring. When your journey brings you to Santa Rosa Beach, be sure to check out Idyll Hounds Brewing Company for a chance to taste the many flavors that make up the region. If you’re on the hunt for the idyllic pale ale while you’re in town, try the Grayton Beer Company and indulge in the flavors that await while supporting a locally-owned family establishment too!
While independent travel and adventure through 30A is always an exciting choice, there’s no reason not to let the experts lead the way when you’re ready to enjoy a stay that’s as engaging and fun as it is educational. 30A is packed with outdoor adventure companies that are dedicated to providing safe and environmentally friendly tours that open up the area’s many features in style. While a dinner cruise is fantastic and a dolphin spotting adventure is bound to be thrilling, there’s nothing quite like booking a trip with 30A Airboat Tours. This one of a kind mode of transportation takes guests through marshy swamps and coastal ecosystems at an exciting pace with options to slow down and observe wildlife carefully as well. Tours are designed to be smaller and more intimate, making this an ideal options for families or groups of 1-3 friends. Enjoy seeing the amazing scenery while enjoying moving through the terrain utilizing the airboat method that truly speaks to Floridian style.
