House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
We love the beach and have been vacationing in this area for over 25 years.
Hunter purchased this House in 2004
Why Hunter chose Walton County
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.

I recently stayed at Starburst with my large family (8 adults, 4 kids 4 and under) and it was the perfect spot for us. We chose the property for proximity to Rosemary amenities AND the beach, and it couldn't have been a better location. You are right on the beach path, only one house back from ocean view, making it so easy for lugging kids and beach supplies each day, as well as easily hopping back to the house for nap time. Then, it was only a short walk to the main stretch of Rosemary for restaurants and shopping, even though you are technically in Seacrest. The walk is probably three blocks and roughly 10 minutes (with kids). As previous reviews mention, you will have to bring everything you'd like in terms of cooking or extra paper products (i.e., we bought salt/pepper, olive oil, etc and brought paper towels, toilet paper, laundry supplies, etc.), but as long as you're prepared for that going in, it's not a big deal. If you are planning to go with toddlers, old enough to want them sleeping in your room but young enough they still sleep in a crib/pack and play, we were able to get creative with where we put the kids. We had a 5 month old sleeping in pack n play room with parents on third floor, 2.5 year old sleeping in pack n play in large bathroom of second floor (it ended up working out great!) and 4 year old in bunk room with 2 year old brother in pack n play in bunk room with him. Just FYI if you're also considering creative options for young kids but also want your own space! We would absolutely stay here again and are already looking for a reason to come back - I really don't think you could find a better location. The beach was crowded to our left and right but we had room to spread out, so it was an added benefit of staying within this community. Can't wait to stay there again!
We loved our stay at Starburst!
My family had such an amazing time staying at the Starburst house! The location was impeccable; it's literally steps to the beach and within walking distance to essentially everything you need (restaurants, shops, bike rentals, etc) and if you do need to make a trip to the grocery store or department store like Target or Wal-Mart, it's a very short drive away. The house was very clean when we arrived and exactly as described in the listing. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dinnerware, and cookware. The pool was perfectly sized for our needs and large enough for the kids to get in and splash around when we needed a break from the beach. The free beach chair and umbrella setup was up and ready early every day just as promised. Hunter was so easy to communicate with and on top of things. I cannot recommend this property enough. My family will definitely consider staying here again if we decide to vacation in Rosemary beach in the future.
Perfect Family Getaway
We had three families stay at Starburst and we loved it! Had enough space for everyone! The location to the beach is amazing! And even though the pool looked small we had seven kids in it an one time and they had so much fun! The only thing we wished the pool area had was a table. We would have loved picnics by the pool. We made due and just put a towel on the ground for the kids. We enjoyed our stay at Starburst and hope to come back again!
Salt & Pepper is the only food product that was there when we checked in. I have never rented a vacation home that did not have a few spices at least.
Start up products were at a bare minimum.
Very nice property.
They should charge a couple dollars more to upgrade basic supplies for families checking in.
Tom, thanks so much for the 5 star review. We regret that there was a misunderstanding about the starter supply of essentials. Our info sheet (which was provided at time of booking as well as 30 days before check-in) does describe exactly what's included in the starter supply. It also suggests that you will need to purchase (or bring with you) anything you need beyond the starter supply.
Location was perfect. Beach was great
