About the property

New!! Take a look at our VIDEO!! After you scroll right through our photos, it is after the last photo.

Spend a relaxing vacation in a very quiet private apartment on the entire first level of our personal home, overlooking Eastern Lake. This spacious living area is nestled in a grove of scrub oaks, on a bluff overlooking a lovely coastal dune lake, less than two miles east of Seaside. The Gulf of Mexico is less than a hundred yards away.

You can venture to the beach with a short walk down the boardwalk at the end of the street, or you can cruise in an old canoe through the inlet, which is where most of the natives here go to play. Deer Lake State Park is less than 1 mile to the east. All Scenic 30-A has pedestrian bicyle and walking paths. WaterSound and Rosemary Beach are within 6 miles to the east. This is located in a quiet, nice old Florida neighborhood south of 30-A on the Eastern Lake, with restaurants, shops, golfing, and bike rentals nearby.

Why Nina McCaslin-Horn and Garrett Horn chose Beaches of South Walton

What makes this house unique

Being South of 30A and located on the Eastern Lake, which is a coastal Dune Lake is very rare. There are maybe only a couple of other locations in our world that boast having over 7 Coastal Dune Lakes on a stretch of 21 mile long beach road. This is a peaceful and beautiful place to live and enjoy God's creation!

Cute little apartment for a small family!

  • 5 of 5

Well kept grounds and plenty of room to eat and relax outdoors. Kids loved the pirate ship. Would recommend only for small families of 4-5 for comfort. Parking was limited to parallel to street only so be careful with small children. We found it just as easy to walk to the beach although an aluminum canoe is available. Owners were easy to contact via email and clear instructions given days before arriving.

A great location, perfect place and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

See earlier review from April. Really can't say enough good things about this place. We came back in the Summer and had another wonderful time. The kids bring their ipods/ipads but don't even charge them up for the entire week, which is nice to see! They play hard all day, kayaking, fishing in the lake or boogie boarding / paddle boarding in the waves at the beach. If they have any energy left in the evening its an easy bike ride or quick car ride to the nearby restaurants and shopping. If they don't have the energy, (which is a good thing also!), the place is has a full kitchen for preparing dinner and a fantastic deck to sit and enjoy the sunsets while grilling.

Phenomenal place, perfect for small family with young children.

  • 5 of 5

We love this place; Garrett and Nina are perfect hosts. Location is perfect being right on lake and an easy paddle board, kayak, or canoe trip away from the beach (< 5 mins). Loading up either thing with beach toys / supplies is absolutely the best way to carry everything you need to the beach. Kids have the option of playing in the surf or the dune lake which is like a giant tidal pool. Would recommend to anyone. It's perfect.

We loved getting to know Nina and Garrett! Garrett has written a book called "Postcards of Seagrove" about this area he grew up in. It's a great read! Our boys (1,2) loved the playhouse and pirate ship! Our 2 year old called it his home! It's a great location to get to the bike trails where you can ride to Watercolor and Seaside or Rosemary and Alys Beach. We loved having access to the Eastern Lake and ocean! Thanks for a great weekend for our family!
