Beautiful house with views from EVERY window of either Oyster Lake or the Gulf of Mexico. Clean; well-appointed kitchen and baths; comfortable beds; plenty of beach gear; and more than enough linens for our two families. A convenient drive to Destin (30 min) and Panama City (45 min) to shop and dine and located on a quiet part of Hwy 30A, relative to the villages of Seaside and Rosemary Beach. Had a maintenance issue on the second day but it was quickly resolved the following morning. Thank you, VACASA! Need to note that the large sectional couch pictured in the booking is not the one in the house. This was a disappointment, as only five members of our party of eight were able to sit comfortably in the living room to watch movies and/or visit. Additionally, there was new construction going up on the lake west of the property, and crews began work each weekday morning at 7:00 am. Overall, though, the trip/location/accommodations were very enjoyable.
Manager response:
Hi, Audra! We're delighted to read you enjoyed your stay. The property manager will work to get an updated photo of the living room seating posted to the website. Thank you!

This home is beautiful with amazing views. There is plenty of space to get together or have time to yourself. The area is relatively quiet. If the weather is nice, you may notice many people parking on the street to access the beach, but everyone we encountered was nice and respectful of the property. Alot of local eateries & shops to try and you have to drive for other things to do besides the beach.

Loved the location in proximity to the beach! The beach chairs, wagon, etc. was also very nice! Also, the porch off of the master suite was a great addition. House is nice but could use some updates and maintenance.

The view of beach and lake was great
Bridget H. Sep 2021
We would certainly rent this home again. We found the location, interior spaces, views, and amenities perfect for our busy family. The home was clean and well stocked upon our arrival. Check in was seamless and the host communicated promptly during our stay. The trip to the beach was easy and quick (we really appreciated the provided wagon).
Kim S. Aug 2021
The Lily Pad is a very nice place to stay! Close to the public beach and a nice restaurant that is walking distance! A friend of ours got married on the public beach and we wanted to be close to them, so happy I chose this location! Beds and amenities are great allowed! We will definitely book again!
Dustin D. Jul 2021
The house is in a great location with easy access to the beach. Short walk to the public beach access.

My only recommendation would be the the kitchen was better stocked (more utensils, cookware, crockpot etc.). Overall we had a great stay.
Liz T. Jul 2021
Great house. Loved sitting on the balcony or in the rocking chairs on the patio under the house. So many amenities… kayaks, a wagon for hauling kids and ice chests to the beach. Two different public access beaches were easily within a five minute walk. Kitchen had plenty of dishes, pots and pans and appliances.

Location phenomenal. House could probably use a deep cleaning and additional items for cooking. Rear deck out onto the lake is a good touch, needs new boards and screws countersunk. A pest control company is definitely be recommended.
Sherman B. May 2021
Love the views. Convenient to the beach.
Casey H. Mar 2021
It was really nice being right in the pond there next to Stinkys Fish Camp. We ended up going there for oysters everyday. The house was extremely comfortable and roomy. The top floor bedroom is where we stayed and the view of the ocean and surroundings from the balcony were perfect.

We so enjoyed our stay at the Lily pad! The lake is gorgeous. I spent so much time on the dock. The house is so close to two beach accesses. Really perfect spot for a long bike ride or walk. Would definitely come back! The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is because some of the furniture has seen better days, but the beds are super comfortable. And we didn’t spend all that much time inside, anyways. Really wonderful spot for a vacation to remember!
Sherman B. Oct 2020
Great water views from everywhere. The three balconies.
Annette N. Oct 2020
The home had a great locations and a really unique view! We actually really like the home but there was a couple of things that need attention in order to get a better rating. First of all the sheets for the bed in the master bedroom was the wrong size so they would not stay on at ALL! That made for miserable sleep. Second, the TV in the living room would not work so there was not watching SEC football. So that was disappointing.
Overall the home was clean and a very nice place to stay.
Manager response:
Hi, Annette! We are so glad you enjoyed the home. The TV in the living room is now working. Thank you!

great view from top deck
Nikki C. Aug 2020
Gorgeous home with amazing views!! We loved everything about this home! The added bonus is that the beds were soooooo comfortable. Not usually the case in places we’ve stayed at in the past.
Rory S. Aug 2020
Fantastic views and the location could not have been more convenient to the beach. Also, a very quiet part of 30a in comparison to others were we've stayed. House was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Great spot!
Nancy S. Aug 2020
Loved the location very family friendly. Enjoyed our stay!
Tina C. Aug 2020
