  • The Name Says it All is Perfect!

    "Property was as pictured and described, except better. Very clean and well furnished, with many amenities. Owner helpful in every respect and a pleasure to work with. Great area for walking, running and biking. The lake was perfect for small children. Would highly recommend. Hope to return same time next year!"

  • Best option for large group - OR just two!

    "We love this house for our large family get-togethers and also for the two of us. Because there are four floors, two can enjoy the third floor master, den, kitchen, dining and porch without feeling like we're in a huge house. Our favorite time of year is off-season: still the same beautiful, sunny beaches for long walks, gorgeous sunsets, and all the shops and restaurants - with shorter wait times."

  • Fabulous family vacation at Dolphin Watch

    "We enjoyed a wonderful stay during my teenagers Spring Break. The home is lovely with large bedrooms, nice den, updated kitchen and fabulous deck ( huge) overlooking a gorgeous white beach! We loved the beach, took advantage of chair rental service which was super. This is a great location, bike ride or short drive to Seaside. We liked being in a quieter area than the hustle/bustle of Seaside. Enjoyed cooking in the big kitchen and also eating out several nights. Fabulous home, comfortable beds and great views!! We will come again!! Thank you to the Buntin family for their hospitality!!"

  • A month of heaven!

    "This is overdue!!! Just wanted to thank the owners for the wonderful stay we had in their beautiful home. It was everything we wanted. Open beachy clean pretty and has the best kitchen ever! It was so much fun cooking in this kitchen that we only ate out three times all month. Every Sat. we rode our bikes to the farmers market in Seaside and to the fish market for our suppers. We even caught some of our own fish!!! Also enjoyed the fact that there are no homes on either side or behind the house had this beautiful space all to our self. The location of the house is great, close to everything. We rode our bikes everywhere, no need to use the car. This home is beautiful and we plan to make our next stay longer."

Eastern Lake Travel Tips

Ideal Eastern Lakes Rentals

With hundreds of Eastern Lake beach rentals around, you have the freedom to pick your ideal location. If you love fishing, pick a vacation rental right on the water so you can go out for an early catch. If you like good food, there are plenty of choices close to Eastern Lake rentals. Watch the sunset from your room or visit a bar to share a drink with family and friends. If you just want to relax, take a lazy evening stroll on the beach.

Finding Good Fishing Spots

Eastern Lake rentals put you next to the water, but it's up to you to find the spots where the fish hide. Fishing on the sandbars offers the best chance of catching saltwater fish. The fish are more likely to bite when they feel "safe" by a sandbar. Sandbars that are crescent shaped or open at one end are best because the fish have a single exit. Another good spot to fish is anywhere the water breaks against the shoreline. Fish swim in to look for food in these spots, making it perfect place to bait them in. Make sure you swing by a bait shop and get the appropriate bait for the job. As their name implies, Eastern Lake beach rentals offer access to both beaches and lakes. Head out to the park lakes for some quiet freshwater fishing.

Good Dining

Many Beaches of South Walton vacation rentals are ideal for good food and a relaxing evening by the water. Picking a place to eat can be tricky, but there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from. One good place that is very popular is the Red Bar, which draws in both visitors and locals. The menu is simple but changes often, offering crawfish, shrimp, prawns, mashed potatoes and fish of the day specials.
