This was a beautiful, well equipped home. It is quite a walk to the beach, but since we didn't have little kiddos and the weather was great, the walk was ok. It would be nice to have a golf cart, but this home didn't include one and you can't rent one and bring it into Water Sound.

House was spotless and beautiful. Only issue was with covid we wanted to cook in and the pans / pots/ utensils were limited. Would have loved access to the bikes and chairs in garage. Beach chair rental is $70/day.

We loved this house. The bedrooms are all nice with lots of beds. Lots of places to sit and relax. The porch space is amazing. The kitchen was neat and clean with lots of plates, bowls, and serving pieces. Next time I will ask for use of beach chairs, bikes, and golf cart.

We LOVED THIS house!! It’s awesome. It’s a bit of a walk to the beach. Would of loved to ride the golf cart. We were supposed to stay at Panama City beach but there was an emergency email sent out the night before we left.... that our condo would not be available for our vacation! I was in total shock looking at this email. So relocation services hooked us up with this awesome huge house at 87 Coopersmith lane. Everything was great. We will definitely go back!

Our family took a very spontaneous trip to WaterSound before our daughter headed back to college, and when we found this gorgeous home, we knew it was going to be a very special time. We work in the vacation rental industry in Blue Ridge, GA and this home was absolute perfection. We stayed for 3 nights but wish we could have stayed the week. Sitting on the porch swing, reading in the comfortable living room, walking to the beach and the pool, exploring 30-A, eating at two fabulous restaurants - The Perfect Pig (and it was perfection) and The Old Florida Fish House (amazing sushi) were just a few things that contributed to happy memory-making. Thank you for offering such a gorgeous home in a gorgeous setting. We can't wait to come back!
