About Harry T. Versen

As California residents many people ask us why Watersound Beach? Well having been to many scenic beaches, Hawaii, Florida and the Caribbean we were simply amazed at what we found one summer when we decided to vacation in Santa Rosa Beach just a few miles away from Watersound Beach. Watersound Beach a new community nestled along Scenic HWY 30A commands a one mile private beachfront surrounded by massive sand's simply magnificant. Certainly the best beach on the panhandle and arguably one the best beach settings in the's true! My wife, myself and our kids fully look forward to our frequent trips to Watersound Beach as well as the surrounding area that offers so many fun things to do. It's got such a beach feel and you just can't beat the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Not to mention the great Southern culture and people who live and work in the Florida panhandle!

First time staying in Watersound and we loved it. House was perfect. Very clean. Felt like home. Golf cart was a big hit. Kids rented bikes and they rode all thru Watersound. Will certainly be back.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Found a family vacation we want to repeat over and over. The house is comfortable and clean, with great appliances, stylish kitchen and baths. The washer and dryer make it possible to pack light, too. Plenty of space and every bedroom has an en suite, which was super convenient with kids.

The dunes and beach are the best I've seen, the boardwalks and golf cart make beach access really easy, quick and convenient. And the kids got a kick out of cart rides. Dunesider pool and surrounding neighborhood is lovely and maintained to ultra high quality. We loved taking evening walks to the park; and for dinner, Bruno's pizza is just down the block.

Harry responded promptly with any questions we had, and was great to work with! This stretch of 30a is now our favorite.

Nice property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed renting this home for the weekend. It had everything we needed and I was really impressed with the overall development and amenities. All the owner's instructions were accurate and easy to follow. If you are not familiar with this area, it is located perfectly between the Seaside/Watercolor area and the Alys Beach/Santa Rosa Beach area with great restaurants, beaches and shopping. It is a family friendly area as is the Watersound development.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that my wife and I, and our kids, went on a vacation to 30a. We have friends that visit quite often, but we weren't sure what to expect. This house and neighborhood were perfect for our family with two small children. The golf cart was a huge hit with my kids and the house was a great size for all of us to feel quite comfortable. We loved having both a pool and beach option.

Watersound was terrific and quiet and a great place to stay because it was only a short drive to more of the "hustle and bustle" of Seaside and Rosemary. I think we certainly found our happy place!
