About Darrell

Love to travel, have been to 49 states and dozens of countries.

Darrell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Darrell chose South Walton

Our Crossings property has the highest level finishes in Water Sound, plus an unobstructed 3rd floor view, and is one of the few properties in the Crossing with an extremely large balcony deck, which is really nice for outdoor seaside dining and large get-together.

What makes this condo unique

Lots of great community features including free 18 hole putting green, miles of hiking trails, a half-dozen beautiful boardwalks, a great health/fitness club, and great beach vegetation and wildlife.

What a treat!!

  • 5 of 5

After having travel delays, what a treat to finally open the door to "Inspiration!" Such a beautiful condo and so well appointed! The views are beautiful and the pool area left the feeling of being at a 5-star resort! Quiet and so peaceful! Darrell was a joy to work with and answered every question with an immediate response! Will definately be a favorite spot for my family to enjoy again!

Kicking back in the Panhandle

  • 4 of 5

Watersound is an ideal location for people who want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the high-rise beaches in Destin. The community is private and quiet; and the area restaurants are easily accessible and excellent.

Internet connectivity is wanting -- but that's a good thing if you're trying to 'get away from it all' for a few days.

Our particular condo was great! Very comfortable. Well maintained. And a very practical layout which afforded both adequate privacy and comfortable common areas. Adequate seating on the deck, at the dining table, and around the TV.

The sugar white beaches along the Panhandle are not conducive to long, surf side walks; but an extensive walking/running/biking path along Rt 30A compensates for this.

Owner's Response: Hi Joe, Thanks much for the nice compliments on our condo and the Watersound Beach Community. Our internet service in the house is fast and reliable, as has been reported by our other guests (see other guest reviews). The uncrowded sugar white sand beach at Watersound is a favorite place for most of our guests to walk for miles either to the east or the west. Personally, I prefer to run and I always enjoy a 3 mile run on beach. The hard-pack along the water is perfect for running/walking, while the soft white sand away from the water's edge is perfect for sunbathing. We also highly recommend the Timpoochee Trail (accessed right by the Watersound gatehouse) for biking, walking and running. It runs alongside 30A, 19 miles from Santa Rosa Beach to Rosemary Beach. Again, thanks for your stay and thanks for the lovely comments on our Inspiration property!

Watersound

  • 5 of 5

This unit is fantastic. This is our 3rd stay at Watersound and this was the best by far. The 3rd floor layout is excellent for families and the patio with continous views and outdoor dining is the best. Like most all the Crossings condos, the finishes and kitchen were great. The kitchen was stocked with all the equipment you could want. The location is perfect right by both the main pool and boardwalk to beach. The carport held a large SUV and paddle board along with 4 very nice beach bikes provided with the unit. Would highly recommend!

WaterSound Was Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to this general area for over 15 years and Inspiration was by far, the nicest, most beautiful place we have ever stayed! The owners were easy and wonderful to go through and made sure everything went well. We loved bringing our own bikes down and were able to store them in the garage provided with this unit...a big plus!! We also rented Yolo boards and were able to store them in the garage as well, along with all pool and beach items! It was so convenient not to bring all items up to the unit after a walk to the pool or beach. WaterSound was just beautiful and we enjoyed using the lake nearby to paddle board when the Gulf was too rough...another great option! We have an adult son in a wheelchair and this unit was great for easy accessibility to the beach via the boardwalks. The scenery was simply beautiful and we loved the boardwalks to walk around the property and see the lakes, homes, and sand dunes. We even saw a bald eagle circling overhead as we were paddle boarding in the lake. Bike riding along 30A, visiting the Hub, paddle boarding, and the beach were all perfect and very convenient! Great memories made and we plan to book this exact place again!! Don't miss the evening sunsets from the bridge to the beach!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Inspiration!!

The Condo is beautiful, the views are amazing, and the surrounding area is luxurious. We especially enjoyed the huge outdoor fireplace by the pool, firewood and chairs are provided. We spent many late nights staying warm by the crackling fire , hearing the crash of the waves and gazing at the stars! We also enjoyed riding bikes around Watersound and the bike paths on 30A. Only suggestion, it would be nice to have a bridge to walk over the tidal inlet.

Hope we can return again soon!
