Overview

About the property

3 Br, Gulf Front Townhome in The Crossings at Watersound.

The Crossings at Watersound is the luxury of lifestyle along the beautiful scenic beaches of 30-A.

Watersound is often featured in the pages of Coastal Living, but our personal condo was featured in the 2007 July/August edition in an article entitled 'Kross Country' that displayed the many upgrades done to the condo. Only a handful of units in the Crossings at Watersound are considered townhomes and come with a garage, and this is one of them!

The beautiful king master bedroom is located on the ground floor. Luxury is what describes this master bathroom with two walk in closets, jetted garden tub and separate shower. Take a nap or read your favorite book while relaxing to the waves on your private covered patio with two outdoor swivel rocker chairs and a sofa off the master bedroom which leads to the boardwalks through the dunes and to the beach.

Also downstairs is CUSTOM CRAFTED BUNK ROOM for the kids. The office area offers privacy and plenty of working space IF you have to do a LITTLE work (remember you're on vacations so RELAX!!!!! Just bring your laptop (yes,we have wi-fi) and make yourself at home!

Upstairs features two bedrooms: one with another king bed, and the third bedroom with twin beds. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom, as well as a TV and DVD player.

The living area is very spacious and relaxing with a calming appeal and features a 42" Smart TV, DVD and stereo. The living room furnishing are all new as of 2016 and came from Lovelace Interiors, so you are getting TOP QUALITY, HIGH END furnishings in this condo.

The kitchen has all the comforts for a gourmet cook and the only challenge you will encounter is deciding whether to cook in or where to eat out!! Custom Painted cabinets in the kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The oven is a commercial grade Viking Gas Stove that will make you feel like a gourmet chef even if you're just cooking Kraft Macaroni and Cheese! The dining room table has seating for eight, but the best feature of this condo is the spacious balcony and porch with comfortable chairs overlooking the dunes and the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico!! A portion of the porch is shaded with comfortable seating for four, while the other portion is for the sun worshipper.

Just a short stroll away is the large private pool for the guests of the Crossings at Watersound. This pool is but one of three distinctive and easily accessible pools in the community and is surrounded by a lovely grassy area and large outdoor fireplace with the waves crashing behind you!! There are also two commercial gas-grills at the pool for your convenience.

Watersound has more than one mile of private, wide, white, sandy beaches to enjoy. If you want to explore beyond Watersound, you can ride your bike, walk, or drive a few miles to Seaside, Seagrove, or Rosemary. The 30-A bike trail will take you from Santa Rosa Beach to Inlet Beach, and you can stop along the way to look at all the neat little shops at Gulf Place, Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove, Alys Beach, Seacrest, Rosemary Beach and Inlet Beach. This area has some of the best restaurants and also some of the most unique shopping available along the Emerald Coast.

For the golfers in your group there are numerous golf courses in the area including: Santa Rosa Country Club, Kelly Plantation, Regatta Bay, Emerald Bay, and Indian Bayou, just to name a few.

Watersound is located about 20 minutes west of Pier Park - the outdoor shopping and dining experience in Panama City Beach. Over 120 stores to choose from (including flagship stores Target and Dillard's) and fun dining experiences such as Margaritaville and the Back Porch for your family to enjoy. Other shops include: Bed Beth and Beyond, World Market, Kirklands, The Buckle, Forever 21, Old Navy, JCPenny, American Eagle, Aeropostale, and many beach boutique shops. For the night lovers, stop by Tootsies and listen to the country music bands. There's also an amusement park with a 4 story slide and several rides for the kids. Best of all is one of the LARGEST DAVE AND BUSTERS in the country is located right at PIER PARK!!!! After a day of shopping and dining you can walk across the street and take a stroll on the pier. Pier Park is also home to the Grand 16 Theater so your family can relax and catch a movie at the beach!

If you choose to stay closer to 30-A, the newest "hub" is located right outside the gates of Watersound and is called "THE HUB". There's a general store where you can grab all sorts of goodies from Sunscreen to that "must have" Yeti Cooler. For those hunger pains, you can decide between CRAVE ROADSIDE BURGERS, MILE MARKER FIFTEEN (Serves Tacos and Tequila :-), MR. FREEZE, and RED'S CHICKEN SHACK. They also have live bands that play there as well and you just never know who might appear on stage with the band!!! Luke Bryan and Zach Brown Band are frequent visitors to THE HUB! Outside the MAIN ENTRANCE of Watersound, there's the world Famous BRUNO'S pizza!!!

We purchased this condo in 2013 and have loved it from the moment we bought it. There's something so special about Watersound, the fact that all the entrances are gated and private and away from the hustle and bustle of 30-A is what made us decide Watersound was the place for us. Yet, we are still so close to EVERYTHING!

About Rental Manager

We reside in Birmingham and fell in love with Watersound. It's perfect for our family and know that you will love it too.

Rental Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rental Manager chose Santa Rosa Beach

We have always loved the townhomes in the Crossings at Watersound, but we chose this particular property to buy because of the proximity to the beach club and because of how beautiful the condo is furnished.

What makes this condo unique

We love that our condo has a garage, so you don't have to wait for an elevator to take your groceries to the unit.

Wonderful WaterSound

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE WaterSound! We've stayed at WaterSound Bridges numerous times in different units. We loved this unit! It is very upscale, with designer amenities. The pictures and description do not do it justice! We used only the master bedroom, but the mattress and bedding were very comfortable...perhaps the most comfortable bed we've slept on in a vacation rental. We particularly enjoyed the very comfortable furniture on the 2nd floor porch. (We've stayed in units here where owners invested little in the outdoor furniture.) The property manager, Heather, is a pleasure to work with and makes sure that every detail is taken care of.

Renters should be aware that this unit is almost to the end of the property (near the St. Joe Beach Club path, or towards Compass Point). As we prefer the beach access at the other end of the property (over the lagoon bridge), it's a longer walk than we've had before. This was no trouble for us, as we brought a wagon to haul our beach gear.

We will definitely return to A-111 in the future and recommend it to our friends!

Wonderful 1st time Experience on 30A by staying in this beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Crossings @ Watersound was absolutely amazing! My family and I normally stay in the Anna Maria area and now we only want to come back to this area. This home is beautifully decorated and it is in an excellent location. Amazing views of the ocean and and close to the both pools. Heather(property manager/contact) was so helpful before and during our stay. There was a little issue with the refrigerator but she was always on top of it and provided solutions and made up for it. Owners have made this place very welcoming and it felt like we were at home. The only thing and its minor and probably more of a preference is carpet in the Master bedroom might need to get steam cleaned or replaced. It may be the traffic in going in and out to get to beach the back way but overall all the rooms are cozy and comfortable. Definitely coming back! xoxo

Beautiful and plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 including children 11, 9, & 3 had more than enough space even when we had a couple of grandparents staying with us for part of our trip. The condo is decorated extremely nice, the appliances are top notch and the view from the 2nd floor balcony is awesome. We never heard a single sound from neighbors or anyone above us...it the very well built for privacy. Having the garage made it very nice to keep your car or bikes etc. Watersound itself is very nice and it is very convenient to Seaside as well as Rosemary beach to bike or drive to. The walk to access the beach is a little long, but if you have beach buggy of some type to help carry your stuff it is no problem. The pool was awesome for the kids (heated). We will definitely look to return to this unit in Watersound if available in the future. Heather was more than accessible and helpful during the entire process.

Perfect first family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first beach with vacation with our 4 young kids. It couldn't have been better. The townhouse was an oasis within an oasis. It had all of the comforts of home, including really nice beds, and had amazing views of the ocean. We spent our nights playing board games and listening to the ocean. Watersound is a great place to take your family. You have all of the perks of Seaside and Rosemary Beach within a few minutes drive but still seemed like you were staying at your own private beach. It was very secluded and quiet. The pool was awesome too. It was heated and our kids would play in for hours.
