"This is about the fourth time we have stayed at the Water's Edge and it has never disappointed us. We were there for a month and it was fantastic! The house was clean with ample provisions. We were very comfortable and it felt like home. If we could give them 10 stars, we would. We had a "front row seat" to a dolphin show almost every day. We even saw a Manatee swimming very close offshore and we found tons of shells. What a wonderful time we had. We did not want to leave. Looking forward to a return trip next year."

"This is the place for an adventurous family. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped with only a couple of minor issues. It was secluded and quiet, but close to beaches. We have a 6, 9, and 14 year old and they all had a lot of fun. The two kayaks worked great, we caught and ate several blue crabs with Joe's crab trap and even picked our own oysters from the nearby oyster beds. Lots of wildlife in the area and the fishing was great (redfish, trout, flounder, even a bonnethead shark!) Alligator point has some nice ocean-side beaches and the north end of Bald Point State Park is a great bay (calmer water) beach with fishing and lots of hermit crabs to find. Don't forget to find the Gulf Specimen Aquarium and the Wakulla Springs State Park on your trip - neither will disappoint you.
Last thing - this place is a CABIN. If you are expect a 5 star condo with granite countertops and new everything, this is not the place for you. This is a place for those of us who like to get up close nature, not watch it from the balcony."

"We had a very nice stay. Our family had some planning issues that were out of our control the week prior to our stay. Sharon did her best and worked with our situation which allowed us to continue our family vacation and we were thankful for that!
The home is very well equipped and clean. There are certainly wonderful views from every part of the home. The third floor screened porch turned out to be a favorite gathering point, especially when a morning shower passed through. The water’s edge is 50 yards from the home and the beach is never crowded. There are no partiers, tourists, or crowds to bother your family’s tranquility. All in all we were pleased with our stay and Sharon’s home provided the peaceful family time that we were after."

"Our family of 10 rented this wonderful beach house for our spring break. It was a beautiful home and very well stocked. You are very close to the beach and it's so quite and peaceful.
We enjoyed fishing. My brother in law caught a 42 inch red fish just off the surf. We also caught sting rays, mackerel, catfish, trout and even a shark. Fishing was fantastic. One of our favorite things was going out at night when the tide was out with flashlights looking at all the sea life. The stars at night were awesome also!!
We have a wonderful visit in this loving home and would recommend to anyone wanting to get away to the beach!!"
