“The Big Chill” is the community center for Prominence and is a quick 10 minute bike ride your home or 1.6 mile drive.  The Big Chill offers something for folks of all ages and tastes, from tacos and tequila, to wings, burgers and shakes, a stop here is quick, tasty and convenient, and comes with a side of entertainment at the outdoor amphitheater. It's a great place to catch a concert, sporting event, or a movie on the lawn.  

Seaside is a short drive away and is most widely known for being featured in the Truman Show with Jim Carrey. Its incredible architecture has helped to make it famous but also its faithful replication of the kind of seaside town that used to be common up and down the coast. Seaside has its own Farmer's Market, post office, Repertory Theater and neighborhood school. It boasts unique shopping, fantastic cuisine and the incredible architecture that makes Seaside famous. There are activities for everyone: kayak rentals, bike rentals, paragliding, fishing, golfing, hiking, swimming, tennis -- you'll find it all right here. 

The snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Sea Turtle Reef, deployed in 2017. Located just 783 feet out from the Grayton Beach State Park access, it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Sea Turtle Reef is at a depth of 12-19 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

"Our family always looks forward to our summer getaways in Watersound West, and this year, Sunny Side Up provided us with a wonderful retreat. We appreciated the bicycles and beach equipment that were available for our use. The neighborhood boasts one of the most stunning boardwalks to the beach along 30A. We feel reassured by the safety measures in place, allowing our children to cycle to the pool or beach without any worries. RealJoy promptly addressed any inquiries we had about the property. In conclusion, this house provides excellent value, and we would not hesitate to stay here again."

"Perfect for the family! - “Sunny Side Up”, located in the Watersound West neighborhood on 30A, is a perfect vacation home for families. We stayed with our kids ages 3-14 and one grandmother. Pros: The neighborhood is beautiful and the home is so relaxing. The home is exactly as advertised and shown in the pictures. We were very comfortable and relaxed. The neighborhood pool is really nice and only about a five minute walk from the house. The home came with all the beach gear we needed including chairs for the adults and boogie boards for the kids and umbrellas. The only things we brought with us for the beach were a wagon, towels, and sand toys. The bikes were like new. We really enjoyed riding around the neighborhood and a few minutes up and down 30A to the quaint shops, restaurants, and The Big Chill. The walk to the beach is breathtaking! The boardwalk from the pool is a short walk and goes through a stunning lake area then over the dunes to the beach. Other reviews complained about this walk, but for us it was one of the best parts of the trip! We really enjoyed it. The beach area is the best we’ve ever accessed on 30A! The nearest other access points are way to the east, and to the west sits Deer Lake State Park. This makes it feel like the beach area is totally private. I grew up in this area and must say that this is one of the best beaches I’ve ever been to along the panhandle. The cons: The access codes for the neighborhood and pool did not work. Rental company was very supportive."

"Family memories - This house was perfect for my husband and me and our daughter’s family of 5. Very comfortable and well appointed. We would definitely rent it again! Only suggestion would be to have some spices on hand (even just salt and pepper)"
