198 Somerset Bridge Road, Unit 102, Santa Rosa Beach, FL, 32459

Found along the Emerald Coast of Northwest Florida, Seagrove Beach is a mile-and-a-half beach that encircles a small cove and lures visitors with its beauty and serenity. Named for the thick grove of windswept trees that surround it, Seagrove still maintains the same green canopy of oaks, magnolias, hickories and sand pines that came to define it a half a century ago. Today, Seagrove has an eclectic mix of old beach homesteads and newer cottages, as well as a well-balanced menu of off-beach activities that range from exploring Point Washington State Forest to browsing the beach shops and restaurants along Scenic Highway 30A.

We are very proud of our private retreat here on 30A. Waterside (102 at the Bungalows) was furnished and opened to the rental market late in the spring of 2012. Our goal was to let you relax and feel at home unlike your typical beach rental property. You will find the new furnishings are as nice as any larger home in the area. We also made sure to add brand new flat screens in every room just in case you get tired and need a break from the sand and sun! The property is completely renovated and easily the newest and nicest in the community.

Waterside sits two blocks from the beach and a row off the parking lot for extra solitude. Come enjoy both of the community pools! Of course the main reason you are here is to enjoy the pristine sugar white beaches of 30A which are only minutes away. Behind our home sits a natural pond filled with lily pads and wildlife. Relax at the dining room table with your morning coffee while you look over the serene water of the lake. At night the choruses of frogs are a great way to enjoy the star filled sky.

We are centrally located on 30A with only a short bike ride to the excellent shopping and dining options of Seaside! If you prefer a leisurely stroll then Café 30A is only minutes away and constantly ranked as one of the best restaurants on 30A. Angelina's is also within walking distance for pasta and, if you are in the mood for an easy morning bite, the Donut Hut is just across 30a. 30A Cottages can help arrange bike rentals if needed. You can also have a street legal golf cart delivered before you arrive to help enjoy the area.

30A Cottages will arrange all your plans and concierge needs prior to and during your stay! Services include, but are not limited to: bike and beach chair rentals, airport and general transportation, grocery shopping, beach bonfires, fishing charters (Gulf and Bay), kayak rentals, baby sitters, restaurant recommendations and reservations, and spa services. We've even bundled items into amenities packages to maximize convenience for guests! Ask for details when making your reservation. The possibilities are endless when vacationing with 30A Cottages and Concierge! Call us for anything you wish!

Direct flights are available from the new Panama City Beach (ECP) airport (only 20 minutes away). The Fort Walton Beach (VPS) airport (45 minutes away) is now flying direct from Atlanta, Houston, Nashville, Memphis, and Orlando! Remember to ask about available airport transportation to and from 30A!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time at Waterside. The condo was immaculate, and the area was peaceful and quiet which we loved! We stayed one week March 16 - 23 and the weather was gorgeous; we enjoyed watching the turtles swim around in the pond behind the property.

The location is priced sensibly for 30A and beach access, so there's plenty of fun to be had. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful property, nearby pool, bikes, everything close-by

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property. The pool is very close, and it's easy to spend time swimming and then run "home" for quick bathroom breaks and/or lunch. It's great for little ones!

The beach is a 5 min walk or so away (if you have small kids, the beach is almost too much of a hassle as it's hard for tired kids to walk back and forth plus carry/cart all of your stuff FYI).

I cannot say enough about the beauty of this little bungalow. Love the decor! We were very comfortable (although we wished the master had a king-sized bed. My son refused to sleep in the other room.)

We biked everywhere, and there are easy rentals nearby if you need additional bikes or add-ons for the kids. I would highly recommend biking around Seaside and Watercolor. We had so much fun exploring those two beautiful cities!

Overall, this was a great place to stay, easy check-in and check-out, great location, great price, and the concierge is very helpful!

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Waterside is such a comfortable home. It has everything we need. The kitchen is stocked perfectly, the location is fantastic, and the service can't be beat. We love that we have a great pool with kids to play with and are only a short walk from the beach. We don't need to get in the car because so many good restaurants are a short walk away. It's heavenly. We would move in if it weren't for those pesky jobs and schools back home ;). The staff at 30a Cottages and Concierge are so helpful and quick to respond to anything we need (including extending our stay when we found out there was a cold snap back home that we didn't want to return to!). Everyone we spoke to knew what she or he was doing and was incredibly nice. We will see y'all next year for Spring Break!

Shangrila and wow, great time had

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is wonderful. Tastefully decorated. Super clean, convenient, well priced, new mattresses. Kudos to the owner. And the 30a Cottages and concierge group, A+++. Things happen and a lot in life is how you roll with it. Part of our party got down there first and hit a deer on the way. Then when they got there the door code did not work. Took an hour for them to call our party, but it was all good. And what did 30a Cottages & Concierge do. Showed up with donuts for us three days later!!

Down 30a, there was a main pipe leak which had water shut off to the whole area. We woke up, had no water, called 30a Concierge and I guess they had been called before and they found out what was going on and how long to expect so that when we called, they had answers. So I like that they are responsive and go the extra mile. Now if they could only make it rain while we slept!!!

Seriously, I will come back again. I'd love to get the same place. It was clean, very appropriate for what we needed and wanted, close enough to walk with everything to the beach, but yet, not a highrise condo where you can hear everyone come in after partying that night. Quiet place.

Owner's Response: Hi! We are happy you had a great vacation and enjoyed your stay in Waterside. We agree that it is a beautiful condo and our housekeepers definitely do a wonderful job! I apologize that the door code was not working when you arrived. As you mentioned, sometimes things happen that are out of our control. We appreciate your understanding on this issue. I know that your guests arrived in the middle of the night and I'm glad our 24 HR maintenance on-call was able to help you! Also, we are glad you enjoyed the donuts as a thank you for your understanding! Please let us know if we can assist you with any future vacation dates. We'll see what we can do about the rain next time. Haha. Thank you and we hope to see you again soon! ~ The Staff at 30A Cottages & Concierge

We had a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! We are hoping to schedule Waterside again next spring break. It was our first trip to the ocean with our kids and they can't wait to go back. The beaches were not crowded and beautiful! A couple of things that would be nice: coffee filters, I know it sounds a bit silly, but if you are going to supply coffee, filters would be great, we left ours behind for the next guest; A grill would have been great. Thanks for a great vacation, we can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Hello Tish! We are happy that you and your kids enjoyed your vacation at the beach. Also, it sounds like Waterside was a great fit for your family! Thank you so much for the great feedback. I'm sorry about the coffee filters. Most of our properties have the stainless steel filters that you can wash and re-use; however, I'm not sure about Waterside. Hopefully before your next stay, we will have one in there as well. Please let us know if we can assist you with any future vacation dates. Thank you and we hope to see you again for Spring Break 2016! ~ The Staff at 30A Cottages & Concierge
