About Jason and DeAnne Watson

We've been enjoying '30A' beaches since we were kids and our three children have grown up vacationing here as well. Being less than three hours away, we visit 30A year round 'Makin' Memories' together. We can't wait to serve you as you vacation in a place we call our home away from home.

The condo is decorated beautifully! It was just perfect upon entry. There was ample space for two adults and two smaller teens! The proximity to the beach access was key! We enjoyed the local eateries and the fact that they had outdoor seating! We enjoyed many local towns on 30A without having to drive too far. The owners were super easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks for making your place so inviting and comfortable. Pizza By The Sea has amazing pizza and The Perfect Pig is amazing! Thanks again for a great stay!

Beautiful condo in prime location!

  • 5 of 5

We love Gulf Place Cabanas for its easy access to the beach and restaurants, and most importantly for the affordable ocean views! It is quiet and relaxing, but still close enough to Destin and Seaside to enjoy those areas as well. This unit was so nice and comfortable, with a fabulous patio (including a table for 4 AND 2 comfy lounge chairs) looking out over the pool/pond and ocean. It was the best unit that we have stayed in so far. Thanks for a great condo and for being so kind and easy to work with!! The Banks Family (Franklin, Tennessee)

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be staying here again! Walking distance to so many great restaurants that we didn't even have to get in the car much. The walk across the street to the beach was easy. The condo was very nicely decorated and clean. Owners very quick to respond to any questions we had. Thanks!

Gorgeous condo and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the "Making' memories" condo on 30A. This was our first time to 30A and we absolutely loved it. The condo was the perfect size and had everything you could need. The decorative style is relaxing and the whole place feels very open and clean. We also enjoyed being so close to the beach and were able to rent chairs and an umbrella almost directly to the left from the beach access of the Gulf Place Cabanas. We ate dinner at Stinky's Fish Camp and had some amazing oysters and fresh fish! We will definitely be booking at "Makin' Memories" again in the future! Thanks for a wonderful time!

We were very pleased with the condo. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Having a half bath was very nice! Crossing the street was very easy as everyone in vehicles would stop quickly to let you cross over. We loved sitting on the private balcony each night and morning(you could see the ocean from there). We rented bikes at YOLO beside the condo and also rented paddleboards. This area of 30a is our favorite! I would highly reccomend this condo to my friends and family!

Well-appointed, ocean visible

  • 4 of 5

Nicely decorated and featuring a very well-appointed kitchen, Unit 310's comfy balcony offers glimpses of the ocean across 30a and soothing sounds of swaying palms and a water feature. The king bed is ideal for those who like softer matresses, while the twin bunk beds offer firm support. The area is far less congested - both on roadways and the beach - than nearby beaches. Overall a quiet, relaxing location.

Check the GulfPlace site for the free Sunday night concert on the green behind the building. Plenty of open space to picnic, play, and enjoy a cocktail (BYOB). The nearby mall has a free outdoor movie on Thursday nights.

The walk to the beach includes about 30 steep/narrow stairs, so account for that when deciding whether to purchase chair/umbrella service. It's a lot of work hauling chairs (plus coolers, toys, umbrellas) to and from the beach.

On site are several local restaurants, and chain restaurants like PF Chang's, Carrabba's, etc are 10 minutes away. The Perfect Pig, next door, offers half price entrees from 5-6pm and serves adult beverages in patio cups on request (which we walked back to our condo to enjoy).

Community laundry facilities are sufficient and we never had any trouble leaving our clothes to wash/dry, though we returned to move/collect them in a timely fashion.

The owners were very kind, helping us retrieve the smart watch my husband left in the bathroom.
