Starburst is located in the exclusive private gated community of Waters Edge, which adjoins Rosemary Beach on the west side. The house is only one row off the beach, and is conveniently located right next to the path to the beach. You can just step out of the house and onto the path, go the length of one lot (about 100 feet) and you are at the steps down to the beach. So it's easy and convenient to go back and forth between the house and the beach.

This beautiful home has its own small private pool which can be heated for a small fee.

With five large bedrooms, four and one-half bathrooms and 10-foot ceilings, this luxurious beach home is perfect for 12 guests to sleep and unwind comfortably.

Starburst's main living area offers a 55 inch 1080p flat panel TV with DVR (for recording your favorite shows), access to hi-def channels, a Roku player (for free Netflix movies on demand) and also a DVD player and mini stero system. The 3rd floor master suite offers a 46 inch flat panel TV, access to hi-def channels and DVD player, the 2nd floor master suite offers a 40 inch flat panel TV and DVD player, and the two queen bedrooms each offer a 32 inch flat panel TV and DVD player. The house also offers hi-speed wireless internet access.

Here is a brief summary of Starburst's layout:

1st floor - entry foyer; 2 queen bedrooms with a shared bathroom; bunk room with its own bathroom

2nd floor - main living area; kitchen; dining area; powder room (half bath); gulf-side balcony; king master suite; small street-side balcony off king bedroom

3rd floor - a second king master suite; separate sitting room with wet bar and small refrigerator; gulf-side balcony

And now for a more complete description:

First floor: As you enter Starburst, you are welcomed into a beautiful slate quartzite foyer and hallway with 10 foot ceilings. There are two large queen-size guest rooms that share a large bathroom with tall, built-in bath cabinetry. Also on the first floor is a unique bunkroom for the kids, with a triple-decker built-in bunk and a separate built-in twin bed (a total of four full-length twin beds). The bunkroom has its own bathroom with shower.

On the ground level exterior beachside of Starburst, you can enjoy the outdoors in the well-designed pool and sunbathing area, which is completely enclosed by a stucco privacy fence. The pool area has a gate opening directly onto the path to the beach walkover. Just step out of the gate onto the path, go about a hundred feet, and you are at the steps down to the Emerald Coast beach.

Second floor: The second floor of Starburst houses the main living area, kithen, dining area, half bath and one of the two king master suites. With lofty ten-foot ceilings, much of your vacation will be spent enjoying the main living area that offers a 55 inch flat-panel TV with DVR, access to hi-def channels, a Roku player (for viewing free Netflix movies on demand), a DVD player, mini CD/stereo sound system, and comfortable furnishings to entertain or just kick-back. The main living area opens onto a private balcony with a large expandable teak dining table where you can enjoy dinner and those fabulous sunsets.

Starburst's gourmet kitchen is a culinary delight. You'll enjoy a free-standing kitchen work table and a custom, two-tiered, granite kitchen bar. Equipped with the best cookware, appliances, a built-in wine rack, granite countertops, stone slate backsplashes, and custom glass cabinetry, this large kitchen is spacious, visually pleasing and functional.

The second-floor master bedroom suite offers a king-size bed, 40 inch flat-panel TV and large private bathroom with walk-in double shower. Open the double French doors from the bedroom and step out to your own small private balcony.

Third floor: On the third floor of Starburst, you will find the second king master suite, along with a small separate sitting room equipped with a stone/slate wet bar, stainless-steel bar sink, and mini-refrigerator. Follow this room out to your own private third-story Gulf-side balcony, a terrific adult retreat for sunrise and sunset views. The third floor master suite boasts a large bedroom with a king bed and a 46 inch flat panel TV, hi-def channels and DVD player. The 3rd floor suite has it's own spacious bathroom with large garden tub and a separate walk-in shower.

Starburst sleeps 12 guests comfortably: two kings, two queens, and four full-length twin beds. Parking for three cars (one covered). Saturday to Saturday rental during high season. Non-smoking. No pets.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We love the beach and have been vacationing in this area for over 25 years.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          This area is so beautiful and so much less crowded than Destin and other over-built areas. And the restaurant, shopping and golfing choices are outstanding.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The small private gated community of Waters Edge provides exclusive access to a beautiful wide white sand beach. Because the Waters Edge community is small, the density of people on the beach is low. One of the best golf courses in Florida is practically next door. Camp Creek (a Tom Fazio course) is about 2 miles away. Shark's Tooth (a private golf club) is about 5 miles away.
