Waters Edge house description
***All weekly stays March-November 1 include beach chair service (daily set-up and use of 2 steamer style beach chairs and an umbrella), unlimited dvd rentals, use of 2 bikes stored in the home plus 1 adult bike rental to be delivered upon your arrival!
This luxurious 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home sits adjacent to Rosemary Beach in the very upscale but quiet, private and safe gated community called Water's Edge. The house is 2200 sq. ft of luxury that will truly be a home away from home. It is on the SOUTH side of 30-A, which means there are NO STREETS TO CROSS TO THE BEACH! This is especially great for the safety of kids!
This ideal vacation home has a true Florida Cottage feel with pine floors, pine wainscotting, and hand painted cabinets with granite countertops. In addition, it has 1100 sq. ft of expansive porches that offer spectacular gulf views as well as soothing ocean breezes.
In the back of the home, you will find a beautifully landscaped courtyard with your own private pool, which can be heated for a nominal charge, and patio with a gas grill for those spring and summer evening cook-outs. Just a short 75-yard walk down an immaculately manicured palm tree lined path takes you to one of the most beautiful beaches in America. Welcome to Barefoot Daze!
The luxurious furnishings of Barefoot Daze were designed with comfort and taste in mind. The bedrooms are all comfortable and designed for beach living. TV's and ceiling fans are in each room. Wireless internet available for your convenience. The 2nd floor master suite has a King size bed, a private bath with a whirlpool tub, a separate shower and it overlooks the pool area below. All beds are appointed with down feather toppers to make your sleeping more comfortable.
Across the hall from the master suite is another 2nd floor bedroom with a king-sized bed and adjoining full bath. At the top of the stairway sits the bunkroom, a perfect retreat for kids. The twin bunks are cozy, and the TV in this room makes for an ideal hideaway for the kids. The first floor bedroom has a queen-sized bed and its own private bath.
The best room in the house is at the TOP! The 3rd floor 'Tower Room' is awesome. Views of the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding communities are spectacular! This room can be used as a bonus room for games and movies or as retreat for couples, teens, or in-laws who prefer their own living quarters. Here we have a comfortable sitting area with awesome views, a queen sleeper sofa combined with a queen-sized bed and full private bath and wet bar!
Everyone will want this part of the home to themselves - the back porches (1st and 2nd floors) overlook the courtyard and pool in the rear of the home where you can sit in the rocking chairs and enjoy the magnificent views and ocean breezes.
The large living room is comfortable and, like the rest of the home, is very tastefully decorated by one of the area's premier interior designers, with a large TV with DVD and stereo with speakers in the living room and back porch. The dining room and the kitchen bar are large enough for the whole family to enjoy lunch or dinner together.
This home is conveniently located only a 3-minute stroll to the shops and restaurants of Rosemary Beach but offers enough seclusion to make any vacation peaceful and relaxing. For those of you that wish to stay 'connected' to the outside world while still enjoying our piece of paradise, we offer wireless highspeed internet.
The newly built outdoor shopping mall, called Pier Park, is a short 10-minute drive east on 98 (toward Panama City). It has a fabulous cinema, as well as wonderful shops and restaurants. Nearby golf courses include Camp Creek Golf Club (1 mile), Santa Rosa Beach Golf Club (approximately 8 miles), The Hombre (15 minutes), several courses in Sandestin including Burnt Pine (25 minutes), and Bay Pointe in Panama City (25 minutes). This area is a hidden paradise for golfers!!
Barefoot Daze is the perfect vacation retreat!
Note from the owners:
We hope you will enjoy your stay at Barefoot Daze. We are thrilled to share it with you and hope that you will create lifetime family memories, renew and strengthen relationships, and unwind from the stresses and concerns of everyday life. We believe our home is the perfect place to do these things. Come and enjoy paradise!!

We (four couples), again, enjoyed Barefoot Daze immensely. Found the house to be roomy, convenient to golf (Camps Creek and Sharks Tooth) and to restaurants and shopping. Kitchen was well equipped and grill was perfect for entertaining. Wish we could return more often. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Barefoot Daze Never Lets Us Down!
Barefoot Daze Never Lets Us Down!
This is our 4th family trip to Barefoot Daze! It was as good this time as it was the first! There are so many reasons that we just love it. First, the house is fantastic. We have been there with just a few friends and also stayed with several families. The house never seems crowded. The layout is perfect. The 3rd floor is great for any family. It has amazing views and is so spacious! The second level has a great bunkroom for the kids, amazing master with large tub. There is another bedroom with a queen size bed that is beautifully decorated and has fit many of our girls before. The main floor is just perfect. There is a bedroom right off the den, which scared me at first because I am a light sleeper. There has not been one time that I have slept in that room that any noise in the house woke me up. Amazing to say the least! The kitchen is well appointed. There is everything from pots/pans to plastic wine glasses. We have never missed anything from home. I personally love the fact that I can be in the kitchen or in the family area and the kids can swim. It is a vacation from a vacation! The kids can eat lunch outside around the picnic table together. The beach is super close. I love the fact the house includes chairs. It is a super short walk down to the beach. It is so close that usually every trip we let our kids run up & swim in the pool while relax for a few extra minutes. We couldn't ask for anything more! If you get a chance book the bonfire on the beach thru the beach chair rental company. You wont regret it! Lastly, it is the perfect location. We have stayed up and down 30A over the last 10 years & really Barefoot Daze has the PERFECT location for us. Downtown Rosemary is a quick 5 minute walk (or a 2 minute sprint if the kids are running to Sugar Shack). It is a 5 minute walk to some fantastic restaurants in either Ally's Beach or Rosemary. They have now opened many places right across the street for sundries, drinks, food, clothes, etc. You can bike to Seaside for the day. Really, its the perfect location & as I write this review I wish I could go back right now! Looking forward to many more visits!

Our family has been going to the beaches in Florida for 22 years. This year there were nine of us, and it was our first vacation in Waters Edge. We were unable to use the pool for the whole week. The office and the owners of the property knew of the pool problem before we arrived. We were not made aware of the problem. The pool was so cloudy that you could not see the bottom. We complained daily, and the pool person just kept putting more and more chemicals in which did NOTHING to erase the problem. The pool just smelled of chemicals. We were told that a part was replaced, but that did no good either. We had small children (grandchildren) with us who would have enjoyed the pool. We PAID for a pool, but we could not use it. The clothes dryer did not work...something was stopped up. When we mentioned this (as we were checking out), the person just casually said, "Oh, yes, that has happened in our house." The owners should have assured us that the dryer WORKED. The kitchen did not even have ONE flat or rimmed oven sheet. We thought that we should AT LEAST have received a partial refund on our rental fee since we were NOT able to use the pool. We have tried several times to get in touch with the owners, but we get voice mail, and they don't return calls. I would definitely NOT recommend this place. This is the only time in 22 years that we have not received what we paid for. Just beware and know that the owners do not stand behind their claims. The pool person kept telling us that even though the water was very, very cloudy that it was safe. However, it smelled heavily of chemicals. We were concerned that it was definitely not safe for the grandchildren. Both pools on either side of us were crystal clear. The pools are very, very small.

Owner response: I am so sorry that you were "very disappointed" with our home. Your claims about not using the pool are simply untrue. The lady that handles our pool maintenance notified us of the cloudy water on the day after you checked in and was in contact with us and with our management company throughout the week. She found your family using the pool every time she went to check on it and thus could not properly address the problem because you refused to stay out of the water, against her advice. Not once during your stay did you contact us or our management company about the pool problem. Because you continued to use it while we were trying to remedy the situation, we assumed that you did not have a problem with it. It was only several weeks after checkout that you contacted us about a "refund." Our management company made several attempts to contact you at the number you gave them to offer some compensation for the inconvenience of having the pool staff on site every day. As for the dryer, this is also the first mention of that I've heard. We've had other guests in our home since then, and no one has reported a problem with the dryer. We make every effort to keep our home in top-notch condition throughout the busy summer season and have never received any complaints. It is unfortunate that you did not address the problems with us directly at the time they occurred so that we could work with you to resolve them.
Wonderful place for families, children, anyone wanting a super time. It was just as advertised and close to the beach. The pool was heaven for the younger children. We want to come back soon! Check out the Farmers' Market. Kitchen was fully equipped and 2 grills in the back yard. Locks on the gates were a plus for our 4 year old and younger grandchildren.

Owner response: Thanks for your kind review! We use our home frequently with family and friends and are thus familiar with the needs of our guests. We strive to replace and update items to keep it in the best shape possible for everyone to enjoy. Hope you'll come back soon!
Thanks so much for sharing your home. We had a wonderful week of golf and fellowship. The house turned out to be perfect for 4 couples. Plenty of room, wonderful heated pool, and perfect for entertaining, which allowed us to have several guests for dinner and cookouts. By the way, the gas grill is exceptional. Thanks, again. Looking forward to out next outing there.

We had an amazing week at Barefoot Daze. Everything was perfect. All the details were taken care of. The gate on the back porch was a lifesaver keeping two 3 year olds out of the pool as well as the chair and umbrella rental. We cooked dinner every night and the kitchen had everything we needed including a cupcake pan! Just a great overall relaxing trip! We can't wait to come back next year.

My family & I had a wonderful stay over the 4th of July at Barefoot Daze. The accommodations were wonderful & we especially appreciated the pack-n-play and booster seat for the baby. I have never stayed in a house a house with a pool, but we enjoyed it so much. We spent many hours, when not at the beach, in the pool. Also, the proximity to the beach was so good - just a short, easy walk to the beautiful beach. We also appreciated the bikes that were provided and the beach chairs. This house is one of the nicest ones we have stayed in on 30-A. In fact, we have never stayed any place other than the town of Seaside, but, we enjoyed the amenities at Rosemary Beach. The grandchildren participated in the children's activites for the 4th ad we found great restaurants and shopping. We were fortunate to be able to tour the Coastal Living home on display which was a plus. It opened our eyes that there is life outside of Seaside and will be thrilled to stay in Barefoot Daze next year.

Barefoot Daze is a beautiful, relaxing vacation home. The description above is spot on. The property was clean and spacious. There was more than enough room for our entire party of 9 adults. It is a short walk to the beach as well as the town of Rosemary. The town provided dining, shopping, entertainment and recreation. You could stay for a week and never get in your car. I highly recommend Barefoot Daze to families and friends searching for the perfect vacation spot.
