TOP FLOOR GULF PLACE CARIBBEAN

Dune Allen Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come and vacation in our beautifully furnished, well maintained 1-bedroom unit on the top (4th) floor facing the Gulf. 3 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs, tennis courts, shuffleboard, lush landscaping, and the BEACH!

The balcony allows you bird's-eye views of the pool area, the private lake, and the waters of the Gulf, including some spectacular sunsets when Mother Nature provides them. It is L-shaped, oversized for the 1BR units because of its location in the building, with south and southeast exposures. This gives some protection from the afternoon sun, but the sunsets are still viewable and sunrises are out there if you're an early riser. The balcony has a table and chairs for outside dining, or just relaxing and taking in the view.

The bedroom has a queen-sized bed. There are two bunks in the hallway, and a queen-sized sofa sleeper in the living room. The fully-equipped kitchen has been recently updated with stainless appliances, new countertops and tile floor. There are plenty of cabinets and workspace if you want to eat in some of the time. If you don’t quite want to get away from it all, there’s free wireless internet access.

The beach is just across the road and down the deeded access boardwalk - perhaps a 50 yard walk. There’s also a nice walking/jogging trail through the property, leading you to tennis and shuffleboard. If you like biking, there is a 23 mile biking trail that goes by. The 18-hole 'Santa Rosa' course at the Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club is adjacent to Gulf Place. Picnic in one of several nearby state parks-- take a short hike and experience a wide variety of natural resources including coastal forests and wetlands, pristine white-sand beaches with majestic dunes, and rare coastal dune lakes.

At the intersection of county roads 393 and 30A, Gulf Place is a planned resort community made up of condos and private townhomes, a large grassy amphitheater, and a commercial area of artist kiosks, boutiques, and eateries. Everyone likes Miss Lucille’s Gossip Parlor where the coffee is always hot, the ice cream a treat, and the bakery goods hard to pass up. The landscape crew keeps the grounds lush and green. There’s a security patrol at night, just in case.

Further afield, golf is just down the road, or you can easily drive to Sandestin and Destin to the west, or Seaside and Grayton Beach to the east. You will find many places to eat and shop along the way. There are five eating places within walking distance of the condo.

See more photos of this unit below.

We also have a 2BR/2BA unit at Gulf Place Caribbean. It is an end unit with added privacy, lots of windows and light, a panoramic view of the lake from the patio, and a spacious master bedroom. Located on the ground floor, it is only a few steps from the heated pool, hot tub, charcoal grill, and parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed your family condo very much. I wish we were able to spend more time there, but the family wanted us down at the beach house every day. We were able to cook there one night, and made breakfast every morning. The patio is lovely and we really enjoyed it. What great views you have. Your place is well taken care of and very clean. My wife and I hope to stay there again. By the way, I do some photography, and the photos of the kids are priceless.



Thanks so much, it was a pleasure!

Just as described, just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
Great unit, great location, in a great complex. Just returned from a wonderful week on 30A in NW FL. We had a wonderful time at Gulfplace using all the facilities: heated pool, hot tub, tennis courts, and open grass for soccer. I would say it's unusual to have that open space dedicated in the complex, so enjoy it.

The condo was just as described and appointed with everything we needed. Nothing fancy, just what you need, kind of like the rest of Santa Rosa Beach. Owner was very helpful and flexible in setup and arrival. Everything occurred just like he said it would. Our only hiccup was some building maintenance that left us without the balcony for a day and a half, but that can't be planned for.

Very helpful to have the washer and dryer in unit. Easy access to the beach was appreciated as well. We had 5 sleeping which was fine while we slept but we tried to spend as much time outside to avoid being cramped. Our choice, not dictated by the condo. We'll look for a larger unit, maybe with the same owner, for our next visit.

We took a great bike ride to Seaside, 6.7 miles one way, and our 8 year old made it like a champ. After missing fresh seafood at a bargain the first couple days, 6 PM closures for Goatfeathers and Shrimpers, we made sure to get our steamed shrimp on time the last 3 days. Shrimper's Market was the best deal and quality for us.

Thanks for a great week. Hope to visit Gulfplace again.

Exceptional Experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a long weekend in 411! It was delightful! It felt quiet and secluded, yet so close to amenities. Gulf Place itself has great facilities (pools, beach access) and this specific condo felt like a home-away-from-home. The owners were easy to work with, and enjoyable to rent from. It looks exactly like the pictures and was represented well. They even have a restaurant menu binder in the condo! Little touches like that made it not just a great place to rent form--but an exceptional one.

great vacation

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as stated. Beautiful view from balcony, bike path next door, plenty of restaurants and things to do nearby, condo was comfortable and well equiped and owner was very helpful with maps and restaurant suggestions. Had a wonderful week, uncrowded and beautiful beach. Definitely one of our most relaxing vacations ever. Number code to unlock door was much nicer than having to carry around a card or key.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a wonderful week in this condo. The owner was great to work with and we were impressed with all the helpful information he sent to us in advance and also had waiting for us in the condo. We really liked the area - Santa Rosa Beach and more specifically Gulf Place have got to be one of the best kept secrets on the Gulf Coast! It's right in between Destin and Seaside, but yet the beach was not as crowded. Gulf Place seemed to be full (according to the parking lot), but we liked how quiet it was. We loved the large balcony which had really nice outdoor furniture and a beautiful view. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen and bath were super clean, and every room was fully equipped. We highly recommend this condo with one small warning: the wireless interenet works better in the morning than the evening. Luckily, we were totally on vacation and didn't bring any work to do! =) We also recommend Amore's Pizza right on the property - yum!

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo with my two daughters and we could not have asked for a better place to spend our vacation. The condo was very comfortable, with a large patio/view and a fully functional kitchen. The condo and the property were clean and well maintained. My daughters loved the bunks. The photos accurately represent the condo as well as the property. The beach was clean with beautiful white sand and blue water.

The location is far enough away from the busy tourist hotels that you can spend a day lounging or at the beach without stepping all over other people. But the best part is that, while it gives a secluded feeling, there are a couple of shops and restaurants withing 100 yds of the front door. There are plenty of places to see and eat at in the area, but you don't have to ever leave the condo property if you like. I highly recommend the property and will be returning.

So happy we stayed here! Awesome view and great condo! Will come again!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to Santa Rosa Beach area and we will definitely be back!

We used the hide-a-way bed, plus the bunks and it worked well for us. The view is amazing. The Caribbean pool is heated, which was nice and relaxing. The beach is so close that it was easy to come and go from the beach to the condo and back to the beach throughout the day.

The owner was very nice to rent from and the photos accurately reflect the unit. It was very clean and appliances are all updated. The unit was carpeted which we liked for our 'young crawler'. (Some of the units are all tile). Being on the top floor was nice and quiet and the balcony is larger than most at this unit. They have all the dishes/silverware/pans that you need so you can grill or cook with no issues. Grocery store is very close. Played tennis at the courts and the scenery is beautiful. Shuffleboard was a hit with the kids. We traveled with a few families and all stayed here..and will again year after year. The owner also has a larger unit on the first floor that worked well for more people - on the far end and was more private than the other first floor units.

Definitely would recommend it to everyone! Santa Rosa Beach is close to Destin but quieter and not as 'touristy'.. close to Outlet Mall and many restaurants if you want to get into the 'town'. The walks and the bike trails were used everyday by our group. There is a fish market within walking distance - very reasonable and excellent - grilled the seafood on the units grills and had a great dinner without having to go to a restaurant!

Enjoy!
