GULF FRONT, 1950'S ORIGINAL BEACHHOUSE, IDLE HOURS

Dune Allen Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Original 1950's Beachfront home located in Dune Allen Beach area. Totally refurbished in February 2009. This amazing home has interesting history.

In the late 1940's, not many people knew about the Northwest Florida area. One of our early settlers were the Jones family from Camden, Alabama. Mr. Jones had this cottage built for his wife and two daughters. Eric Allen built this home and was the developer for all of Dune Allen area, and gave it his name. This home is the last remaining home that Eric built.

This home has an amazing view, and has been refurbished to show its charm. We know that you will enjoy this peaceful place and call it 'your Summer home!'.

YES, you can bring your pet - there is an additional non-refundable pet fee.

quaint, comfortable, perfect

  • 5 of 5
Four of us - 2 adults and 2 teen boys spent a week at Idle Hours. The location could not be better. The beautiful beach was steps away. The house was very clean and comfortable. It accommodated us perfectly. The location has a great restaurant within walking distance (Stinky's excellent despite its name) and is only a 10 minute drive from Seaside and about 25 from Destin. The house was better than pictured. We saw dolphin swimming too. Great trip!

So relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed at Idle Hours for a week and we loved it! The place has such character and a warm home-like feel. We spent hours sitting on the deck watching dolphins, sunsets and moon beams on the water. We will definately be back. Dune Allen is a great quiet spot, it is the complete opposite of busy Destin which is exactly what we were looking for. We enjoyed great meals at Stinky's, Shorty's, the Red Bar and Basmati's to name a few. Our little poodle enjoyed the stay as well and we loved being able to bring him along.
