About Elena LoPiccolo - Property Manager

Local Haven Rentals, LLC was founded on the idea of experiencing your vacation like a local. There's something magical about submersing yourself in the culture of the community as you live amongst the locals, dinning and shopping at the nearby restaurants and boutiques all while supporting small businesses and local economy. You're immediately welcomed into the community upon arrival as if you're a longtime friend. Being a tourist is something of the past. We welcome you to your Local Haven!

Elena LoPiccolo - Property Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Elena LoPiccolo - Property Manager chose South Walton

WaterSound is perfectly situated to provide easy access to Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach to the east, and to Seaside and Watercolor to the west. This convenient yet private community offers the advantage of being situated entirely on the Gulf side of scenic highway 30-A, so there's no busy road to cross to get to the beach or to take a leisurely ride on your bike.

**One of the newest features of the WaterSound community is The Hub. It is newly constructed and the hottest place to dine while hanging out listening to live music and it's less than a 3 min walk from the house!**

Perfect for large/multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We visited Watersound and stayed in this home with 2 other families. The home facilitated us all comfortably and with ease. The kitchen, where we spent the majority of our time, boasted of a large Sub-Zero refrigerator and extra large, commercial grade range which made cooking for 14 people a breeze! The home was well decorated, care for, and stocked. We walked easily to the beach, pool, and nearby Hub. Katie, with Local Haven Rental, was AMAZING in helping us plan our trip and answer questions regarding the house and area. She even showed up on a Sunday morning to reset the internet for us. We used Sunny Days Bikes to rent kids bikes + trailers (house comes with adult bikes) and they delivered/picked up the bikes for us + gave a 10% discount since we were in Watersound. Between Katie and Sunny Days, we barely had to lift a finger.

We would highly recommend this house and the Watersound area!

This is a well designed house for a large family wanting to be together at the beach

  • 4 of 5

Great location - in area of beach that is still relatively quiet and so beautiful -walking distance to beach and convenient pool as well - house was perfect for our needs - clean/well-equipped/comfortable with rooms for all and well-appointed decor. Bathrooms large/clean - closets as well. Kitchen was set-up for multiple chefs at one time. Beyond the house, Elena (property manager) was SO VERY responsive and helpful - when we could not rent beach chairs and received rude service from St Joe - she offered a gift card and was genuinely interested in helping us enjoy our vacation - - she made the difference and is one of the main reasons we enjoy using VRBO - personal service. Only negative was that ice maker was not working (bad news in middle of summer with 12 thirsty crew members) and dials on oven nonfunctional...small issues but easily fixed as well. Hope everyone who rents this home has as wonderful a vacation as we did - everyone so sad to leave !

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the beautiful La Mer! :) With that said, thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. Unfortunately, the free-standing ice-maker stopped working at the worst time of the year, aka Summer. We're currently in the process of replacing the ice-maker with a brand new one. Just a kind reminder that there are other ice-makers for guest's use in the kitchen freezer along with the 3rd floor and carriage house. Local Haven Rentals strives to ensure our guests are 110% satisfied with their experience. We hope you return again in the near future! Kindly, Elena

Beautiful!

This is our third year staying at La Mer! The views are stunning, and it's just a short walk to the beach. The home itself is beautiful! We hope to return next year!

Great house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

House is perfectly located. Very short walk and even shorter bike ride to beach, pool, and/or Hub.

Our group was 4 adults, 6 teenagers, and 5 younger kids. The layout and size of this house fit everyone well.

Very accommodating owner.

We have been staying in WaterSound for many years. We've stayed in multiple homes on each side of the neighborhood and this is the best one we've experienced. We will be staying in this house for many years to come.

Wonderful Stay at La Mer

  • 5 of 5

We had the most incredible spring break at the perfect house in Watersound Community. We stayed at La Mer and cannot say enough about how accommodating Local Haven and Elena was to work with. She was ready to offer assistance with anything and always with a quick reply. The house was a perfect setup for 3 families. The layout gave everyone privacy but also provided the perfect setup for meals together and social time by the fireplace or on the screened porch. We enjoyed the scenic walk down the path to the beach and enjoyed our bike rides along 30A. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a great family vacation.
