About Harry T. Versen

As California residents many people ask us why Watersound Beach? Well having been to many scenic beaches, Hawaii, Florida and the Caribbean we were simply amazed at what we found one summer when we decided to vacation in Santa Rosa Beach just a few miles away from Watersound Beach. Watersound Beach a new community nestled along Scenic HWY 30A commands a one mile private beachfront surrounded by massive sand dunes..it's simply magnificant. Certainly the best beach on the panhandle and arguably one the best beach settings in the world...it's true! My wife, myself and our kids fully look forward to our frequent trips to Watersound Beach as well as the surrounding area that offers so many fun things to do. It's got such a beach feel and you just can't beat the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Not to mention the great Southern culture and people who live and work in the Florida panhandle!

Harry T. Versen purchased this house in 2006

Cannot stop talking about the experience we had in the Watersound Community and at this house. Everything was as advertised and yet still exceeded our expectations. Have already booked a return trip!

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I never write reviews, but a friend recently asked me about my WaterSound experience (July 2016), so I felt I should write what I told her about this property. This place was amazing- clean and well-kept and nicely decorated. The owner (Harry Versen) was very easy to deal with and very responsive to questions and I enjoyed chatting with him. We have 4 teenage boys, so we needed room for them to move around and obviously a place for everyone to sleep. Beds and couch were comfy and we got no complaints from any of them (and that says a lot for growing boys!). We loved the golf cart that came with the house. We rode to and from the beach or to the house where my brother and his family were staying. We also rented bikes from a nearby company who delivered them and then picked them up when we left, so convenient! There were lots of kitchen items that we used (we even made lasagna roll ups for 25 people one night), so we were able to eat in and had all the conveniences of home. The community of WaterSound was very nice and conveniently located to many areas on 30A. We have not been back to the beach since this stay, but I would consider visiting again sometime. You will not be disappointed if you rent this property!

First time staying in Watersound and we loved it. House was perfect. Very clean. Felt like home. Golf cart was a big hit. Kids rented bikes and they rode all thru Watersound. Will certainly be back.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Found a family vacation we want to repeat over and over. The house is comfortable and clean, with great appliances, stylish kitchen and baths. The washer and dryer make it possible to pack light, too. Plenty of space and every bedroom has an en suite, which was super convenient with kids.

The dunes and beach are the best I've seen, the boardwalks and golf cart make beach access really easy, quick and convenient. And the kids got a kick out of cart rides. Dunesider pool and surrounding neighborhood is lovely and maintained to ultra high quality. We loved taking evening walks to the park; and for dinner, Bruno's pizza is just down the block.

Harry responded promptly with any questions we had, and was great to work with! This stretch of 30a is now our favorite.

Nice property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed renting this home for the weekend. It had everything we needed and I was really impressed with the overall development and amenities. All the owner's instructions were accurate and easy to follow. If you are not familiar with this area, it is located perfectly between the Seaside/Watercolor area and the Alys Beach/Santa Rosa Beach area with great restaurants, beaches and shopping. It is a family friendly area as is the Watersound development.
