About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Sea Glass Cottage is new and ready for your family. With 4 large and private bedrooms and 4 baths, our house will comfortably sleep 10, (maximum capacity) and our home is equipped with everything you will need for a relaxing, stress-free get-away. You will be comfortable without feeling too close to others. Just bring your toothbrush! We are the closest house to the beach and community pool in Watersound West. Home provides two master king bedrooms- each with its own full bathroom, 32 inch flat screen TV's with cable and DVD player in every room.

Home stereo plays your I-pod throughout the house. 7 bikes are available AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE with the house for your use with helmets. Wii and Playstation 2 with games is for use in the main living area and bunk room. TV's are in every room with DVD players. Kitchen with all professional Viking appliances.

WaterSound West Beach is the newest addition to the St. Joe Company's fabulous WaterSound community, a private, gated enclave at Seagrove Beach, between Destin and Panama City Beach. The expansive West Beach private pool is included and literally a 30 second walk from the front porch of our home. The pool cabana includes barbecue facilities and a large outdoor fireplace, perfect for cozy gatherings. Watersound West Beach is located south of Hwy 30-A, about 1.5 miles west of Water Sound.

Sea Glass Cottage is located just steps from the private boardwalk, which meanders to the beach via a lovely and easy 5 minute walk or 2 minute bike ride. *No stairs up or down to beach from house!* Beach crowding is never an issue on this secluded beach expanse. No high rise or condo congestion.

There is not a better location for family bike riding than Watersound West Beach. A propane grill is for personal use by our home also. Wide boardwalks and neighborhood streets provide safe and scenic riding for all ages with very little traffic. Hop on the Hwy 30-A Scenic Corridor Bike Path for nearby destinations such as Seaside, Seagrove, and Rosemary Beach.

Just a few doors down from our home, Horseshoe Park will welcome a family game of horseshoes or simply lazing with a good book under the shade of a magnolia tree. Just steps from the front door, Puttering Park will help golfers hone their putting skills.

Community is gated with 24 hour security patrol.

We hope you will be among the many families to make memories at Sea Glass Cottage, WaterSound West Beach!

About Janet Colgan

We are Janet and John Colgan. We fell in love with Watersound West and truly feel like it's the best location on the beach. We love that we own in a gated community where its safe for us to enjoy with our four adult children and our grandchildren. We love that our small grandchildren can enjoy a huge zero entry pool directly across from our home and that the boardwalk to a uncrowded beach is steps from our door as well. We also own next to a nature preserve which gives us added beauty and privacy. I'm sure you will love this home as much as we do!

Janet Colgan purchased this house in 2008

Why Janet Colgan chose Santa Rosa Beach

Our home is closest on the row closest to the beach and pool in a lovely gated community with a resort feel. We have a large beautiful community pool and a lovely boardwalk to the beach. The walk to the beach is like a nature walk that takes you through tall pines and opens to a gorgeous view of Deer Lake and huge sand dunes. As you walk to the beach across the lake, you will see wildlife, water lilies, wild flowers and beautiful snow white sand dunes. As you near the beach, prepare to have your breath taken away by the view of the crystal blue 'emerald coast' waters. The private, quiet beach is our favorite part of Watersound West Beach and we are sure that you will love it too.

What makes this house unique

The beaches of Watersound West are private and we are across from our community pool and close also to the privacy of Watersound West Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your house in Watersound West Beach! The house was just perfect for our group of seven. Location was the best - especially for the two 10 year olds who were in the pool non-stop. The house was generously stocked with supplies, beach stuff and the bikes were a huge plus. Your decor was comfortable and beautiful.

We will definitely recommend to other families.

Beautiful Home, Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This home fit our needs perfectly! The home was beautifully decorated and the location couldn't have been better. We had four small kids traveling with us and it was great being so close to the beach and pool! The owner of this property was great to work with and made the whole process of booking the property go smoothly. I'd definitely recommend staying here!

Beautiful, well appointed, home. Directly across from pool, and the fact it is never crowded, makes it feel like a private pool. Short 5 minute walk to beach on the boardwalk right outside the front door is ideal. The community is separate from all of the busyness of some of the adjacent areas so the beach is never crowded. The lake that feeds into the water created some interesting copper color changes to the water at times but if you want crystal clear water, a short walk down the beach could get you to it during those times (which I assume is dependent on tides and time of year (during our stay in April we never witnessed the color change)). Overall, it was a great vacation!

Wonderful House, Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

SeaGlass cottage is in a fantastic location with close proximity to the beach and pool. We loved being near all the action of 30A while still having some peace and tranquility provided by the WaterSound community. SeaGlass cottage is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay. Our children especially enjoyed all the games, movies, and bicycles. The adults enjoyed the well stocked kitchen and lovely furnishings :) I highly recommend SeaGlass cottage for anyone looking to enjoy a lovely week at the beach!

Absolutely Amazing Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed every single thing about this house. The short bike ride to the beach, convenient pool access right across the street and so much more! I would recommend this house to anyone looking for an unbelievable beach vacation experience. We have been vacationing to the 30A our entire lives and there's truly no other beach in the costal US that compares. The privacy, white sand and crystal blue waters provide a tropical experience so close to home. The owners were incredible in providing us with all of the necessary information prior to our arrival to ensure we had an unforgettable experience. Will definitely be looking forward to going back!
