It’s true: Here all paths do lead to the sea. At Sea Esta, your entire group will enjoy beautiful, designer inspired accommodations plus privacy, and a relaxing place to retreat that is just down the path from the beach.

The community of WaterSound West Beach is tucked between Eastern Lake and Deer Lake on the southside of Scenic Highway 30a. With the Timpoochee Trail (better known as the 30A bike path) connecting over 17 miles of noteworthy communities, rare dune lakes, top restaurants, bars and dozens of options for retail therapy you’ll find yourself in the middle of tough decisions, like do I bike or walk to the beach? Should we hit the pool before or after lunch?

The WaterSound West Beach community pool and pavilion is just minutes from your doorstep. You guessed it – follow the path to this very large pool and pavilion which includes fountains and a zero-entry feature, perfect for any age group. After a swim, continue to follow the paths right to the Gulf of Mexico, a 1 mile walk. Watersound West Beach beautifully preserved the large dunes and natural landscape letting the mixed bike and pedestrian path wind through it all.

The name Sea Esta takes a unique spin once inside this beautiful 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom single family home. The sea colors of the Gulf of Mexico resonate from the most delightful details such as the coastal blue kitchen cabinets, landscape artwork, whitewash flooring, airy wall colors and more. The interiors are in comfortable and perfect for your retreat.

Enter the home through a quaint front porch into its large, open floor plan where the coastal décor comes to life! In the kitchen, the blue cabinetry perfectly blends with updated stainless steel appliances. The large island with breakfast seating will make preparation for a large meal or light appetizers enjoyable for everyone. This kitchen is made for function and ready to serve-up your favorite recipes.

On the first floor resides the home’s second master suite which boasts clean, crisp décor and a beautifully finished linen bed. The bedroom’s master bath is privately accessed within the bedroom offering the utmost in privacy for your guest. The bathroom encompasses natural tones through its granite countertops and masonry details. This bathroom is equipped with double vanities and a standing shower. Don’t worry, there is a first floor power bath just for your extra guests.

Moving to the home’s second floor, the younger guests in your group can enjoy the media room located at the top of the stairs. Flat screen TV, storage and a pull out sofa may offer an ideal place for a spend the night party! If not, move the younger ones down the hall to the built in bunk beds. Each have their own space and the bunks are decorated like a Gulf coast sunset – vibrant and fun!

The home’s third bedroom offers a queen bed, flat screen TV and an additional en suite bathroom. Natural tones continue in this bathroom within its granite countertops and tile detail.

The true master bedroom shows the same calming coastal colors and adds an element of teal with its headboard. With plenty of floor space and easy pastel colors, a Sea Esta will certainly be on your agenda while staying in this bedroom retreat. The en suite bathroom has a very large standing shower, double vanity sinks and large mirror.

After a long day on the beach what better way to relax than to return to this outstanding outdoor living space and grill some of your favorite coastal recipes. If the weather turns cool, the fireplace makes a welcomed spot to unwind and share your coastline discoveries with your guests.

Fun on the resort-styled scenic highway is around every corner! From the entrance of WaterSound West Beach you are 2-2.5 miles from noteworthy towns of Seaside and Watercolor. You are 1.5 miles from Seagrove Beach. You are just 3-5 miles from the new favorite hangout, The Hub and then to Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach. At Sea Esta you are in the center of all that is 30a!

Enjoy and know you have a great place to vacation!

What makes this house unique

Hidden behind towering pines and native vegetation of an old growth coastal forest on the Gulf side of Scenic Highway 30-A is the charming, coastal retreat called WaterSound® West Beach. Bordered by the 1,995-acre Deer Lake State Park and the sugary white sands and crystal clear water of the Emerald Coast, this gated community offers a feeling of seclusion. Yet, the WaterSound West Beach community is conveniently located to the shops, lively eateries, and local activities of famed Scenic Highway 30-A.

The WaterSound West Beach communities homes are steeped in classic maritime influences with natural wood shingles, deep porches and elegant craftsmanship. Painted with a palette of natural colors, the homes are designed to sit slightly above the contours of the land to take advantage of the refreshing Gulf breezes.

This sophisticated, yet quaint neighborhood, offers numerous amenities for your comfort and enjoyment including a swimming pool area, outdoor grill and fireplace, puttering park as well as beautifully crafted boardwalks and plenty of parks, winding trails and natural areas.

The WaterSound West Beach community also features dedicated beach access.


Guestbook comments from the owner

Sea Esta was absolutely GORGEOUS! Just like it looks online, but maybe even better. The beds were so comfy. The beach was absolutely beautiful. It is a bit of a walk, but not too bad at all. We piled everything into a wagon and it made the beach walk more do-able. We can't wait to come back!

Thank you for being a fabulous host. The house was GORGEOUS! The beach was GORGEOUS! We had a fabulous vacation and hated to leave. And thank you Cindy for answering all of my questions before we went. You were a pleasure to deal with.

Beautiful vacation home!

Beautiful home. Perfect for my family. We had a wonderful time. Would definitely stay again.

My son & daughter's families were both in the group, so the 2 master suites were perfect.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our family vacation at this home. It's in a great location with lots to do and see nearby. It has the perfect amount of space and everyone slept comfortably. The decor was gorgeous and the kitchen was well stocked. We had an issue with the AC units in the middle of the night but it was resolved quickly and was much appreciated. Only recomentaion is since this is a beach home with lots of sand around, you should provide some cleaning tools like a vacuum and a broom to keep the place tidy during the stay. We went out and purchased a sweeper and cleaning supplies to help with the upkeep during the week. The property management team did a great job making sure our issues were resolved and our questions were answered quickly. Thanks for a great stay!
