Recent Eastern Lake reviews

  • Awesome property!

    "This was our 9th year to stay at The Other Place and as always it was a week to remember! The house is located right on the beach. with the Gulf and Eastern Lake just steps away. We have a total of 9 people (2 families) and there is lots of room. The kids love having the inlet to the lake right next to the house. The views from the upper deck are gorgeous and we eat dinner there every night. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you need. The owners, Bill and Faye are so nice and easy to work with. They take good care of the house and it shows! It is clean and well maintained. They just did an update and it looks great. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. We just returned and are already looking forward to staying at The Other Place next summer!"

  • Great beach house!

    "We went over Labor Day Weekend and really enjoyed staying in this house! It's an easy short stroll to beach and the home is well equipped! We especially enjoyed the upstairs deck as it was a nice place to have evening cocktails? The beds were extremely comfortable and the house was bright and extremely clean! We would definitely recommend and will be going back soon!"

  • Great place for active family

    "Really beautiful house in a great location. There were three couples and six children, so we completely filled the house. The master bedroom is spacious and really pretty. The other two bedrooms are a little small, but well furnished and worked fine for the two other couples. Our four girls (ages 4-13) shared the bunk room and our two boys (8 and 12) claimed the third floor with sleeper sofa. Be aware that the bunk room has no storage at all, but sliding suitcases under the beds worked fine. We loved the location on the lake and especially having the canoes which became our transport back and forth to the beach. We loaded up all our beach equipment early each morning and someone rowed it over for the best spot on the beach. The kids loved catching crab, canoeing, and swimming in the inlet as well as the beach. It's also within a couple of blocks of the bike trail on 30A which was fun for everyone. Great vacation and we would recommend it to any active family or group."

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.
