The area is the highest point in South Walton County and is surrounded by great eateries and local eclectic shops. Highland Parks is perfectly situated between Redfish Village and Gulf Place Town Center on Hwy 30A! Enjoy dining at local favorites The Perfect Pig, Red Door, Local Catch, or Basmati's.

Seaside is a fantastic destination, 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 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.

Bike over to Blue Mountain Beach Creamery for some homemade scoops that will have your taste buds coming back! You'll have an array of dining options to choose from!

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!

"Good family place - Good pre-communication and easy check-in with the codes. The house was clean and nice. Very little in the way of supplies but there was a little dish soap, 2 laundry pods, a paper towel roll and toilet paper in each bathroom. Enough to get us by until we went to the store. The kitchen items were sparse and not the best quality. There was only one small cookie sheet and it was very used and dirty. There were no pool bracelets upon arrival and we didn’t notice until after 5 pm when the office was closed. We just went ahead to the pool and a security guy let us in when we showed him our pool gate code and confirmation email. Management brought the bracelets the next day around 11am after getting my voicemail from the night before. Not a big issue since no one ever asked to see the bracelets. Golf cart and bikes were fun and useful. Plenty of room for parking between the driveway and garage. Nice place for our family of 10."
