Located in 30A "Water's Edge" which is a Private Gated Beachfront Escape on 30A! Located on the south side of 30A in-between Rosemary Beach and Seacrest Beach, the location could not be better!

Comfort…Gulf breezes…sunshine…these are the words that come to mind when you stay at Waters Edge rentals in Avalon. This is a beautiful Seacrest Beach 5 bedroom/4.5 bath home with spectacular Gulf views. Avalon is one house from the beach and located in the lovely private gated community of Water's Edge. Adjacent to Rosemary Beach, the combination of privacy plus convenience to all the surrounding activities make this home a wonderful vacation choice.

As you enter, you are greeted by a charming entry with lots of lights. There are two bedrooms with queen beds and direct access to the back porch and pool area. These bedrooms share a lovely bathroom that includes a tub/shower combination. There is also a cute bunk room with its own full bath on this floor. There is parking for 2 cars in the driveway.

The private back porch and heated pool (for an additional fee) are inviting and relaxing. Lots of seating for lounging and dining, as well as a gas grill, will call everyone outdoors. There is also a convenient outdoor shower just steps from the community beach walkover.

The second floor features an open kitchen/living/dining area filled with light and beautifully furnished. This space opens up even more with the second floor balcony that includes lovely gulf views. Everyone will have a place at the table that seats 10, additional seating at the counter, plus all the comfy seating in the living area. The kitchen includes granite countertops, a convenient breakfast bar, side-by-side refrigerator with door ice dispenser, glass top stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and pantry.

About Miranda Thomas

There are many vacation rental companies for you to choose from. Some are big, some are small. Some have an enormous inventory, and some are local. So what makes us different?

Two people. One dream. And not just any dream. A dream to live at the beach and create something they can build and care for. Caring, the most important thing. Because many companies can say they have great service. But not many can say they care the way two people with a dream can.

Jim & Camille Dixon began investing and renting their personal 30A homes in 2004. Seven years later they realized their deep passion for the boutique vacation rental industry. Jim & Camille moved their family of four to 30A in 2011 to open 30A Escapes. They started the company with only 2 Clients. Today 30A Escapes is prominently known as the Top high end management firm on 30A.

30A Escapes wants to assure you that we will care for your needs, your wants, and everything in between. We will care for you because we all have dreams.

Awesome! Relaxing! Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was awesome, I would recommend this to any family/families looking for a fun, relaxing vacation. We were literally steps away from the beach or could hop on bikes & hit the shops/restaurants. Our place was clean and beds were comfy. We will be back for sure!

Avalon is Beautiful! Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is WOW! It is one of the nicest, most well kept and tastefully decorated beach houses I have ever rented. And just a 2 minute walk to the beach or 5 minute walk to the restaurants! Extremely private with all of the amenities I look for with children. The pool is fantastic. We spent many nights out on the decks listening to the ocean and just relaxing!

The kind of beach house you wish were your own!

I highly recommend this house. It was better than I had imagined!

Avalon is amazing, we can't wait to return!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing along 30A for the past 10 years, and Avalon is the most beautiful home we have rented with the best location by far! It was so convenient to walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping; but the location was still very private and relaxing. We loved having bikes available to use during our stay and our kids loved the private pool.

The pictures of the unit are beautiful, but the house exceeded our expectations in person. The decor was fabulous, and the bed in the master off the kitchen was SO comfortable. My kids loved the bunk room, and having their own private bathroom. We shared the house with 2 other families and there was plenty of space for everyone. The best part was how clean and new everything was in the house. Clearly the owners take great care of this property!

When you're in town, be sure to visit La Crema for the Hot Chocolate Molten Cake. It's worth the wait!! We can't to return to 30A and stay at Avalon!!

Super Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this house in January 2014 and found it outstanding! It is beautifully decorated and furnished and we had a great stay. The property is well located with the beach, restaurants, shops, and grocery stores all only a short distance away. All of the rooms in the house are large and when we had visitors they were all impressed with our rental. There is a small swimming pool, and although we did not use it, at times it did look very inviting. We will definitely try to stay at this home again when we visit the area next time.

Gorgeous House…Location, Location, Location

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best home we have rented on 30A. After vacationing in the area over the last 6 years, we have definitely found our favorite spot. This house is only one back from the ocean and it still has great views. It takes about 3 minutes to walk to and from the beach which is a huge benefit with small children. The home has a great private pool which the kids greatly enjoyed. The home was very spacious even with the 12 of us there. It was extremely clean and very easy to work with the management company. It's only about a 5 minute walk to the Rosemary Square and it came with bikes. We will definitely stay in this home again! Thanks for a wonderful stay Avalon!

Our family stayed in this home over Thanksgiving break. There was a total of ten of us (two families of four, and the grandparents.) There was plenty of room for everyone! The house was extremely clean and appeared to be recently painted. It was so amazing to wake up and look out the doors at the ocean! Our family of four stayed in the third floor master which was very spacious. There is a nice sitting room attached to this room with a pull out sofa where our young children stayed. Amazing ocean views from this floor! Waters Edge is definitely the place to be. A very short walk to both Rosemary and Alys, and the beach took us about 30 seconds to walk to! Our kids loved the private pool!
