About the property

One of the CLOSEST CONDOS to the BEACH with UNOBSTRUCTED COASTAL VIEWS

FEATURING NEW great room FURNITURE!

Our GULF FRONT condo with unobstructed PANORAMIC COASTAL VIEWS is the perfect retreat for a BEACH VACATION GETAWAY located next to the beach in the Crossings complex at the private, gated community of WaterSound Beach on coastal Highway 30-A.

We are one of the closest condos to the beach... only 3 have a shorter walk! And, yes, the views you see in our pictures were taken from our condo.

Designed by professionals, Dune Haven’s 2168 square feet of living space features spectacular views of pristine white beaches and emerald waters. This unit has the view, space and modern amenities to make your vacation perfect.

The wall of windows in the great room provides this luxury residence with extraordinary natural light and it leads to a very private balcony overlooking the magnificent waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Camp Creek Lake. Hardwood floors are found throughout this exceptional property that offers the utmost comfort in a bright, airy and chic atmosphere.

Coastal living is defined by the fantastic view from the large living, dining, and kitchen areas on the second floor. There is plenty of seating around the table with additional seating at the breakfast bar. The dining area is open to the gourmet kitchen for the ultimate in entertaining and gathering among family and friends. Enjoy a glass of wine or a delicious meal utilizing a fully stocked kitchen including stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. The upscale kitchen features new custom cabinets installed in 2016.

The second floor features two bedroom suites; one with a King bed, furnished with brand new furniture ,new mattress and a full bathroom, the other with a Queen bed and a full bathroom.

The spacious gulf front first floor Master suite features a King bed with a new Tempur-Pedic style gel topped mattress, new furniture, two walk-in closets, a spectacular marble bathroom with a large jetted whirlpool tub, separate shower and a double vanity. The Master suite has its own private over-sized deck with a view of the beach, the water and the dunes. Very few first floor condos can make this claim. It is the perfect place to take a nap, read a book or relax to the sound of waves.

On the first floor, there is a bunk room with a twin over twin bed for the kids, located off the hallway as well a fully equipped laundry room.

Only a handful of units in the Crossings at WaterSound have their own private elevator inside of the unit and this is one of them. There is also an attached garage and your own parking space.

For your swimming pleasure, three pools are available for your use. The Crossings swimming pool is located just a few yards from the door and is used exclusively by Crossings residents and guests. New for 2016, the Crossings pool has been totally renovated, re-tiled and furnished with all new top of the line furniture. The pool area is surrounded by a large deck area, grassy yard, and beautiful outdoor fireplace. There are two commercial grills that you may use. You may also use the community pools and pool houses named Bridges and Dunesider. WaterSound Beach Club is a private, members only, club. VRBO Guests staying in WaterSound Beach are not allowed to use this pool.

WaterSound has more than one mile of private, white, sandy beaches for you to enjoy. Other amenities include Puttering Park (18 hole putt-putt course), Yacht pond, playground, walking paths and boardwalks throughout the community and access to Camp Creek Lake. A state of the art fitness center is available for a small fee. Beach chair and umbrella rentals are available.

The surrounding area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Over 20,000 acres is state-owned and therefore protected from future development. It is home to one of the most beautiful beaches in the nation, South Walton Beach, and also has 17 fresh and salt-water lakes and the Choctawhatchee Bay.

The 30-A bike trail will take you from Santa Rosa Beach to Inlet Beach. Along the way you can enjoy the communities of Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove, Alys Beach, Seacrest, and Rosemary Beach. Deer Creek State Park is located next to WaterSound Beach and other state park are just a short bike ride or drive away. The area has some of the best restaurants and most unique shops along the Scenic Emerald Coast of South Walton County.

Golfers can enjoy numerous courses in the area including Santa Rosa Country Club, Kelly Plantation, Regatta Bay, Emerald Bay and Indian Bayou.

If shopping interests you, WaterSound Beach is located about halfway between Destin and Panama City Beach. Destin features Destin Commons, Grand Boulevard and Silver Sands Factory Stores. Panama City Beach is home to Pier Park Mall with over 120 stores to choose from.

Sorry, this is a non-smoking unit and no pets are allowed. Thanks!

About Dave & Jeanette Worman, Mike & Gail Garbe

Our families have always enjoyed traveling and have become especially fond of the WaterSound Beach area. This is our second condo in the community and we would love to have you as our guests to experience the amazing white sand beach and quiet tranquility Dune Haven offers.

Dave & Jeanette Worman, Mike & Gail Garbe purchased this condo in 2015

Why Dave & Jeanette Worman, Mike & Gail Garbe chose Santa Rosa Beach

We chose this property as our vacation get away because it has expansive views of the beach, the dunes, the sunsets and the coastal lake, from the second floor balcony. Dune Haven is one of the few properties where you can sit on the deck or upper balcony and actually see your family on the beach. It is situated in a safe, gated community and offers a spacious, welcoming and comfortable place to call home.

What makes this condo unique

The views and the sunsets from Dune Haven are spectacular. We have an expansive beach view from the second floor living area and balcony, plus, we have a water view from the first floor! Not many locations in Watersound Beach have a water view from the first floor. We also have a private elevator for your use. The attached garage gives you handy access to beach toys, bikes and your car plus, you never have to look for a parking space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures do not do this condo justice. The views are unbelievable in addition to the sunsets. The condo has everything you need. We have been staying on the panhandle beaches for 15 years and this condo and location is by far and away the nicest.



The condo has many advantages. One surprise was how useful the elevator was in moving in and out, managing large quantities of items for our extended stay.



Another delight was the large master bedroom with a bathroom that had just about everything and then some.



One warning, the couch on the first floor porch causes drowsiness... especially after a long walk on the beach.



Our only disappointments were that we did not obtain a few of our goals. We had hoped to lose weight walking on the beach and the boardwalks. However, that didn't work because of the many great eating places in the area. Fortunately, the excellent outlets and malls in both directions gave us an opportunity to adjust our wardrobe. Another goal was to improve my golf handicap. Unfortunately, the beautiful golf courses had too many sand traps, water obstacles and trees to accomplish that goal.



The weather was perfect during our two month stay. The first floor master bedroom also provided privacy, and a quiet space for us to retire when we had younger company.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is lovely and very roomy. It was clean and well maintained. The owners were easy to work with and responded quickly. The location is great as well! It is very quiet and not crowded at all on the beach. The pool and the grounds are beautiful as well. I definitely will stay again when we are in the area.

Lovely home with great view in secluded community

  • 5 of 5

So quiet & relaxing even on Memorial Day weekend! We will definitely come back to Water Sound. Had the pools almost to ourselves most days & found quiet spots at the beach. The property was beautiful, clean, comfortable & supplied us with lots of things we would need. Awesome view from the porch. Wonderful stay!

Great property with unobstructed beach views!

  • 5 of 5

Property was very clean and well taken care of. Beaches were not busy at all and the area is very quiet, but still have quick access to Seaside, Rosemary Beach etc. Onsite pool was also clean and relatively quiet. Great fire pit in the pool common area stocked with wood that we were able to utilize on a cool evening. We would definitely stay here again.

Does not get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful vacation! Beginning with a step less entry, easy to climb steps and an elevator

if one is needed. Tremendous views from covered porch and the open deck which is great for feeling the warmth of the sun without going to the beach. 12 year old granddaughter who was there for only one night summed it up perfectly, the photos do not do it justice! Gulf front, lake and boardwalks create a great setting

Top Shelf!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Watersound in this property was terrific! The unit has great space, was very clean, and of course has a fantastic location. The views of the gulf and the lake as well as the proximity to the ocean made our experience a great one. Watersound itself gives you a quieter, relaxing beach experience but with close proximity to several great communities and activities. The owners were very accommodating to our special requests and were very easy to deal with. We would highly recommend this unit for your next 30A beach trip.
