Area Attractions:

“The Hub” is the community center for Prominence and is a quick 10-minute bike ride your home or 1.6 mile drive.  The Hub offers something for folks of all ages and tastes, from tacos and tequila, to wings, burgers and shakes, a stop here is quick, tasty and convenient, and comes with a side of entertainment at the outdoor amphitheater. It's a great place to catch a concert, sporting event, or a movie on the lawn.  

Seaside is a short drive away and is most widely known for being featured in the Truman Show with Jim Carrey. Its incredible architecture has helped to make it famous but also its faithful replication of the kind of seaside town that used to be common up and down the coast. Seaside has its own Farmer's Market, post office, Repertory Theater and neighborhood school. It boasts unique shopping, fantastic cuisine and the incredible architecture that makes Seaside famous. There are activities for everyone: kayak rentals, bike rentals, paragliding, fishing, golfing, hiking, swimming, tennis -- you'll find it all right here.

The snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Sea Turtle Reef, deployed in 2017. Located just 783 feet out from the Grayton Beach State Park access, it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Sea Turtle Reef is at a depth of 12-19 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

- The house at 221 Anchorroad was beautiful, clean, and full of top food finishes. I’d love to revisit this home again.

Jul 17, 2022

Great - House was perfect for our group! Loved the neighborhood!

Apr 19, 2022

Spring break fun - My family had a wonderful time on 30A! We loved the convenience to everything at this house and my teenage daughter and friend loved the bikes! The house was beautiful and a great restful place to stay when you need to get away!!

Apr 11, 2022

- Such a great place to stay!! We felt like it was home! We look forward to booking again at this location soon!!

The only issue we had was the smoke detector was directly in the kitchen(which isn’t a bad thing). It just kept going off when we cooked anything with the stove, oven or toaster. Nothing was burning. Which then scared my babies every time. But other than that it’s far enough from the crazy traffic of seaside but a super close drive to everything!

Wonderful! - Beautiful home, short walk to beach, convenient to 30A & PCB activities.

Christmas at the Beach - House at Watersound West was clean and just as expected. While the Dryer needed repair, that happened promptly. Conveniently located a short bike ride to the beach and community pool, the home came with 4 bikes. We rented a few more and enjoyed the warm weather, rides to Seaside and Rosmary and sunsets at the beach.

Just perfect - We loved everything about this rental!

Wonderful Vacation - Sisters & nieces gathered for an annual vacation. Very nice home!

- The staff with Realjoy were wonderful very fast at responding and accommodating

Perfect week in Watercolor with 4 teenagers! - Great house...the communication regarding check in could have been better. I had to track down PM to get access info. Other than that, all was great.

Friends Gathering - Longtime friends gathered to share stories and make new memories. We loved the screened in porch for morning coffee time and in the late afternoon we gathered with wine on the upstairs balcony. The kitchen was probably the most fully furnished one we have seen in a rental vacation home. We all loved the closeness to all the wonderful restaurants in the area. We had trouble getting the back door keypad to unlock the door one day, despite putting in the correct code. After we got in, a representative showed up and explained that the battery was weak and she was there to change it. Superb service without us even reporting it. Impressive!

The perfect beach house - This house was so calm and relaxing - perfectly appointed. We walked to the beach every day (ten year olds and 7 year old) and then enjoyed the pool in the evenings. The neighborhood was lovely and the beach was everything we have come to expect at 30A. Upon arrival we discovered that the dryer was not in working order. We definitely needed a dryer. The rental company was very accommodating and offered to wash and dry our clothing daily. The dryer repair happened on the second day of our stay. The rental company communicated quickly and well, and offered to help solve our problems. Overall, it was an absolutely wonderful week. We would definitely rent this property again.

Girls Beach Trip - This home was the perfect gathering place for a girls beach trip. The home was well appointed and quite comfortable, very clean, quiet location, with plenty of room for everyone. We especially enjoyed our porch time! We would certainly recommend this property.

- This is an up to date 4 Bedroom house which is beautifully decorated. Perhaps due to COVID there were no spices (no salt and pepper even). Watersound West is lovely, and the pool is a 6 minute walk and the beach another 6 minute walk. We did not mind the walk as it was great exercise. The 4 bikes that were included were very nice to have. Realjoy responded to any problems we had (recessed lights out, bedsheets that smelled bad, getting tv to work).

Restful Retreat - This house and neighborhood were wonderful. The house was clean, well stocked, and beautifully decorated. We especially enjoyed coffee in the mornings on the second floor porch and meals on the screened in porch. We took advantage of the bikes provided and had a wonderful time!

Loved our time here! - We loved staying in Dune our thing. It was our first time in Watersound & we will definitely be back. The house was perfect for our family. We loved the outdoor balcony & porch. We had young’s children with us & it was easy to drive to the pool & walk to the beach from there. Pool to beach was about 0.5 mile. Thank you!
