About The Owner

I love the water and the beach. Surf fishing or just walking on the beach is a favorite of mine. I like laying on the hammock on the porch with the gulf breeze blowing in my face. I never want to leave the house when I am on the hammock. I also enjoy morning coffee on the front porch listening to the waves. The screened porch is an excellent place to enjoy lunch. Sunset is always an important time of day to go outside on the large master suite with family or friends and enjoy looking at the gulf and watch the sun go down.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose South Walton

Love the area. Beautiful beach and water.

What makes this house unique

Quiet and serene. Not your typical rental. Well stocked kitchen and a house to remember. Located at the end of 30-A which has less traffic problems or congestion. Kids can bike or walk in a safe neighborhood. Near dining and shopping.

Great Location, no crowds!

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the location or price of this adorable beach house for the area. Second row, dead end street, and near the end of an uncrowded section of the beach. Quick access to 30A or over to Panama City. The house is clean, well kept and decorated very well, not overdone. You have two choices to access the beach from the house: to the west is the direct beach access but a little more crowded and to the east is the walkover but it puts you right in an uncrowded part of the beach right next to the state park. The walkover is a beating with all the stairs, but ultimately worth it. We shared the house with family and had plenty of room to relax and cook. The backyard has a nice firpit for smores and some good chairs for hanging out. You can't go wrong with Idle Time!!

Can't Say Enough About Idle Time

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th consecutive year staying at Idle Time, and we would not stay anywhere else for our Emerald Coast beach vacation. The location is ideal, being a short walk from a very private beach and near the end of a dead end street allowing for endless hours of bike riding for the kids. Yet, you're also close enough for a nice stroll or a quick family bike ride to the amenities of the pricier 30-A communities. Idle Time has enough space for everyone to be comfortable without being wasteful of space - we fit up to 8 adults (ranging from 30-72 years) and 2 kids (who have grown up coming here) easily. It's always well-maintained and clean during our visits. The front porches are so relaxing and a postcard of Panhandle easy living with their unspoiled views and ocean breezes. The grill is great for barbecuing, and the owners have thought of just about everything you'll need. We loved the upgraded washer and dryer this year, and the master bathroom is perfect. They also have house and beach toys for the kids. We can't say enough great things about Idle Time, which is why we've returned year-after-year and will continue to do so. It's a solid value and a hidden gem! I would highly recommend Idle Time to family, friends and readers of this review.

Look no further, this is a wonderful beach house! Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

So far we have enjoyed three family vacations at this beautiful beach house. The location on Inlet Beach is awesome and cannot be beat. The house is situated on a dead-end street with a walkover just to east that puts you on a gorgeous, uncrowded beach. The house is spacious and immaculately well-kept and clean, the kitchen is very well-stocked for lots of home cooked family meals, and the open floor plan on the first floor lends itself to lots of opportunities for family bonding/conversations. We love the subtle, beach-themed decor and the many family-friendly touches that come with this house (they even have a stockpile of children's books that our grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed). We also really appreciated the brand new washer and dryer, they cleaned our clothes, swimsuits, and towels thoroughly and quickly so we could get back to having fun at the beach. The house also has large first and second floor porches, some of our most relaxing moments were spent enjoying the hammock on the second floor with a fantastic view of the Emerald Coast. There is also a nice fire pit set up behind the house where we enjoyed campfires and lots of s'mores. All of our family feels so comfortable spending our vacation in this home, we had all the amenities we needed for a great stay and more! The owners are incredibly kind, welcoming, responsive, and accommodating. We will definitely be returning to Idle Time!

Things to Consider

  • 2 of 5

The house was spacious, decorated nicely and close to beach with a great washer & dryer. However, the house was not very clean. There was dried food and crap all over cabinet handles and drawers. There was dog hair all over the furniture. Lots of light bulbs were out. Very low water pressure for showering, didnt feel clean after a day at beach with suntan lotion. Carpets were heavily soiled.

Superb house and great location to beach!

  • 5 of 5

This home could not be more beautiful and well appointed! It is truly a home and doesn't elicit any notes of a rental. From the beautiful decor , to the charming antiques, this house is a MUST stay and return! It has EVERYTHING you could possibly think of as far as kitchen ware! We loved the ease of both access points to the beach. None of us would be able to think of one single thing to complain about....and's the BEACH!

Thank you to the owners for being so nice, checking in and calling! We really hope to come back!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

House was really nice. It was the best stocked house in regards to kitchen supplies, towels, movies and games!

Only drawbacks was that the washer and dryer didn't work real well and the crosswalk to the beach was a little rough. It is not straight so a beach cart can't be used.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. There are two beach accesses on our street. The one to the east has steps and the access to the west of our house is level for easier access with a beach cart or wheelchair equipped with beach tires.
