Location, Location, Location

Starburst Beach House is located in the private gated community of Waters Edge, which adjoins Rosemary Beach on the west side. Waters Edge has its own private beach and, with only 34 homes in the entire neighborhood, the people density on the beach is low. As a result, Waters Edge is very popular with vacationers seeking the "perfect place" along 30-A.

Starburst Beach House is only one row off the beach, and is conveniently located right next to the path to the beach. You can step out of the house and onto the path, walk the length of one lot (about 100 feet) and you are at the steps down to the beach. There are only two homes in the entire community with shorter walks to the beach. So it's easy and convenient to go back and forth between the house and the beach.

This beautiful home has its own small private pool, which can be heated for a small fee.

With five large bedrooms (3 kings, a queen and a bunk room), four and one-half bathrooms and 10-foot ceilings, this beautiful beach home is perfect for 12 guests to sleep and unwind comfortably.

Here's the layout:

1st floor:

• Entry foyer

• King bedroom

• Queen bedroom

• Jack & Jill bathroom shared by the King and Queen bedrooms

• Bunk room (sleeps 4)

• Private bathroom for the bunk room

2nd floor:

• Main living area

• Kitchen

• Dining area

• Powder room (half bath)

• King master suite with it's own large bathroom (including a large walk-in double shower)

• Gulf-side dining balcony

• Street-side balcony off king bedroom

3rd floor:

• King master suite with it’s own large bathroom (including a walk-in shower and a separate large soaking tub

• Separate sitting room with wet bar and small refrigerator

• Gulf-side balcony


• Large flat screen TVs in the main living area and the four main bedrooms

• Streaming devices with each TV (either Roku, Smart TV or Blu-ray) and free Netflix and Amazon Prime Video on Demand (pay content is available by reimbursing owner)

• Quality audio system connected to TV in main living area (with bluetooth for playing your own music via your smart phone or tablet)

On the beach side of the house, you can enjoy the outdoors in the pool and sunbathing area, which is completely enclosed by a stucco privacy fence. The fenced-in area includes a large two-burner natural gas grill (no propane bottles to deal with) and a gate opening directly onto the path to the beach walkover.

Starburst sleeps 12 guests comfortably: three kings, a queen, and a bunk room four full-length twin beds. Parking for three cars (one covered) on the parking pad at Starburst, with a 4th parking spot available on Geoff Wilder Lane close to the house (ask the owner for a parking pass).

About Hunter

We love the beach and have been vacationing in this area for over 25 years.

Hunter purchased this house in 2004

Why Hunter chose Seacrest Beach

This area is so beautiful and so much less crowded than Destin and other over-built areas. And the restaurant, shopping and golfing choices are outstanding.

What makes this house unique

The small private gated community of Waters Edge provides exclusive access to a beautiful wide white sand beach. Because the Waters Edge community is small, the density of people on the beach is low.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just want to thank you for sharing your vacation home with us. The place was beautiful and we had a wonderful time. Thanks.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at other houses in this community and we liked the location of this house. It’s the 2nd to the beach and right next to the beach walkway. The house was clean and I didn’t hear anyone complain about their bed firmness. The house was equip with everything we needed to cook almost every day. I think we couldn’t get the ice maker in the freezer to work, but we also never called in for help. The pool was a bit small, but the kids loved it. We would recommend this place and we will probably be back. Oh if you have knee issues, this house or beach access is not for you. There’s 40 steps down to the beach.

Best house we have stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! Perfect location to the walkway to the beach. The decks are awesome! The only thing it lacks is a fan in the bunk bed room ..that room was hot. We had a fantastic time!

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at Starburst Beach House. Clean, nicely furnished and decorated, and very comfortable beds. My grandkids loved staying in the bunkbed room! Updated, and well appointed bathrooms and kitchen. Nice decks on each level, and we loved the close proximity to the beach! Beach was quiet (April 21-28) and stunningly beautiful, but weather was a little on the cool side. House has a heated pool, a bit small, but grandkids enjoyed it. We loved that the house is in a gated community in an upscale village within Seacrest/Rosemary Beach, with close-by bike rentals, and nice choice of restaurants and shops within walking distance or a short drive. Everyone in our family had a good time. We would love to come back again.

Great house, great location, great owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay at Starburst beach house in Water's Edge. It is located right next to Rosemary, within a quick walk to shops and restaurants. The house was only one house back from beachfront, which made going to and from the beach so easy! The house included a set of beach chairs and an umbrella and the beach service company was so friendly and easy when I wanted to add another set. The kitchen at Starburst is well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. It was nice having the kids downstairs (underneath us) as opposed to a floor above us. Hunter, the owner, provided the best property management experience I have ever had in all the years we have gone to the beach. He was so informative prior to our trip and when I had questions while on vacation, he always responded incredibly fast. We would definitely recommend this house.
