Families will love the amazing amenities at WaterSound West! This 256-acre, gated community is ideally located directly on the Gulf of Mexico between Seaside and Rosemary Beach. The seasonally heated zero-entry neighborhood pool features cabanas, outdoor grills and a fireplace! Go exploring on boardwalks and nature trails that wind through the community, over the large pond, and directly to the Beach. With Horseshoe Park and Deer Lake State Park nearby, a 9 hole putt-putt course, bike and kayak rentals available, WaterSound West is sure be the perfect peaceful beach vacation! 

** Bicycles ARE allowed in the WaterSound West community on the streets. Due to safety and legal concerns, the WaterSound West HOA will no longer allow bicycles on the West Beach boardwalks. However, they are still permitted on the beach walkover, with the following provisions. (1) Bicycles must be walked from where the pavement ends at the clubhouse to the entrance of the beach walkover, where the railing begins; and (2) Bicycles must be ridden at the lowest possible speed while on the beach walkover. **


“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!

Our stay was great, we had some issues getting into the rental as the code didn’t work but customer service was super responsive and had it resolved within 10 minutes. While we were there the air conditioning had a hiccup & wouldn’t shut down and had the house down to 64 degrees but after calling & leaving a voicemail a tech was sent out and this was resolved as well. The house was beautiful and super clean & we loved the neighborhood! We will definitely be back.

Vanity in the master bedroom was extremely low. Not your fault. Also would’ve been great to have 4 nice bikes, instead of 2 beat up ones.
