About the property

6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

40 Watch Tower Lane is a luxurious, three story home situated in Dune Ridge, the most desirable neighborhood in WaterSound Beach. This one-of-a-kind beach estate is an ideal vacation getaway and reflects the distinct talents of designer Erika Powell of Urban Grace Interiors. The first floor includes a beautiful chef’s kitchen and a large living room that opens to the unique outdoor courtyard with a summer kitchen and private pool and Jacuzzi. Also on the first floor are a large dining area, a separate window encased breakfast area and an elegant master suite. The second floor includes three more guest bedrooms and the ultimate master retreat, including an immense master bathroom with steam shower and huge walk-in closet with separate washer and dryer. A detached carriage house offers an excellent space for guests wanting extra privacy and their own private balcony with Gulf views.

The all-important tower on the third floor allows you to enjoy the magnificent WaterSound Beach views and is great for sunset cocktails. All three levels are serviced by an amply sized elevator, making this home perfect for a multi-generational family retreat. The home also includes a state-of-the art technology system, three washers and dryers, and a Miele coffee center in the butler’s pantry. No expense was spared in this home. The wooden boardwalk just outside your front door will take you on a quick stroll to the beach, or you can explore the surrounding 30A area and various shopping and dining venues in neighboring Seaside, Seagrove, Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach!

The house was wonderful. Extremely well equipped with 3 sets of washers & dryers, great bathrooms, a wonderful Sonos system as well as great appliances in the kitchen. Very close to the beach. We had four problems and 360 Blue fixed all immediately. They were extremely responsive and helpful. We will definitely return

June 2017 Stay

  • 4 of 5

As a family, we enjoyed our stay. Despite some a/c problems, ice maker not working properly, and the golf cart not charged and needing water in the battery cells that we had to diagnose; we enjoyed our vacation. I would advise locking the unfinished rooms on the third floor with little kids running around etc. For a house that accommodates a large family, it would be nice to have more than one pitcher available and to have some plastic cups. These are little things but would have been nice touches. We love Water Sound and have stayed in different homes in the area. We will definitely return to this area again!

We are checking into the housewares to make sure the home has enough items to support the number of guests. We are thrilled that you had such a great stay and we hope to see you back soon!

March 2016 Spring Break Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Watersound in a fabulous home! While the weather was not great, 40 Watchtower made up for it. Our teenage kids were enthralled with the Sonos system, and Jenny and I were smitten with the huge gas fireplace - which we enjoyed every morning. We definitely hope to return.
