Along 30A, miles of bike paths hug the coast passing through 11 different beach towns each with it’s own character. There are 4 state parks with pristine pine forests and boardwalks that rise above the wild sea oat covered dunes.

Drifts of wildflowers are present nearly year round and 11 rare coastal dune lakes occasionally open to the sea. 30-A offers unspoiled nature at it’s best!

Nearby Seaside, the cultural and commercial center of 30-A, has attracted worldwide attention for it’s “new urbanism” concept and outstanding architecture. Here you will find art galleries, shops, fine dining and a repertory theatre.

We hope that you will become frequent guests at #405 Gulf place.

About Nancy Birch

hello....we are very excited to offer this site with this beautiful view. It is our first vacation home. Our previous experience as renters of beach properties with gracious owners leads us to promote and price our unit similarly. My name is Nancy Birch and I will be the go-to on rentals of our second home. Please call the phone number listed below or email me - looking forward to hearing from you..!

Sincerely....Nancy Birch & Paul Lefebure

Nancy Birch purchased this condo in 2009

Why Nancy Birch chose Dune Allen Beach

The white sand beaches with clear turquoise water in Santa Rosa are probably the most beautiful in the world. Nearby Grayton Beach always ranks in the top of the 10 best beaches. Plus we love the many coastal lakes, state parks and the 30 mile bike path that hugs the coast.

What makes this condo unique

Gulf place has everything! There are three pools, two hot tubs, tennis courts and shuffle board. The bike path is right out front as are four private beach accesses. In addition there are shops, restaurants and a new bar. The architecture and landscaping are beautiful.

This Condo was Top Notch for us!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip ever to the Gulf coast. We were able to travel around 30A and Destin quite a bit during our stay (that included Watercolor, Blue Mountain, Rosemary, etc.) and we feel like we got it right the first time. Great view of the ocean from the patio, the condo was totally accommodating for my wife and two kids, and access to the beach was super easy. It's a quick drive to Publix for groceries, there are a couple of beach stores and a bike rental within easy walking distance, and the kids really enjoyed the green space behind the condo. There were two concerts 'on the lawn' while we were there, and they were a lot of fun.

We met people in the adjoining condos who has kids our kids age (8 & 11), and they had a great time playing together with their new buddies on the beach and at the on site pool.

It worked out great, and we plan to do it again!

Wonderful week for family of 4

  • 5 of 5
This condo is adorable. We are a family of four, with two children, ages 6 and 3. Our boys loved the bunks, being near the elevator (we had to create a system for pressing the buttons each ride ; ), eating on the balcony, and the overall coziness of the condo. The size was perfect for us, just a little tight with groceries and luggage, but not enough to hinder our enjoyment. Our friends stayed in Seagrove near Eastern Lake. And while we had a great time visiting their beach one day, we loved our beach and the convenience of walking to dinner and ice cream. The pizza at Pizza By the Sea is some of the best we have had - ever! We recommend walking to the garden pool. It is very nice and calm, without good steps for beginning swimmers. Other practical tips: the walk to the beach is not bad at all and use of the washer and dryer was easy, being right across the hall. The concert on Sunday night is literally right outside the condo - our kids had a blast running around and dancing. We plan to vacation here again next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for sharing all those tips for future guests. We are delighted that your family had such a good time. I just saw a Travel and Leisure web site listing the best coastal towns and Santa Rosa Beach was one of them. They even wrote about Miss Lucille's!!!
Will look forward to having you staying with us again. Our best to you all.

Beach vacation

This was our first time staying in this condo. It was so beautiful and the view from the balcony was amazing. We loved how everything was decorated. I love this area and it was very peaceful. The chair and umbrella service was great. It was so nice not to have to worry about carrying our own chairs everyday! We can't wait to come back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you return.
You are right about the area being peaceful and less crowded than some other locations. What we like is the ability to walk to so many restaurants and shops and of course the beach chair service. I hope you were able to catch the concert while there. There is a whole summer series of concerts right there at Gulf Place.
Thanks so much for your review. We appreciate it and are fortunate to have such great guests!
Best,
Nancy and Paul

UPSCALE WITH A VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We are just home from a 2 week stay in this beautiful condo. This is our second or third stay here, and it is so nicely done, and has such an awesome view that we will stay again. My wife and I were discussing where to stay for our October trip, and she said that this place feels like home and for us to stay here again. I couldn't agree more. Thanks Nancy and Paul for sharing it.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much. That's the highest compliment that a guest can pay us. Years ago we rented the same little beach cottage in Rhode Island every summer. It always felt like home so we know how important that is. It's a great feeling to open that door and remember good times and look forward to new ones. 405 has become a special place to a lot of our frequent guests. It's our pleasure to share it and we will continue to make new improvements to make your stay more enjoyable. We look forward to seeing you again.

Gulf Place is the perfect central location to experience everything there is to love on 30A. This unit has a wonderful view of the ocean which is an extra-special treat. All of the lovely amenities are just as they are pictured on the site. We hope to return again very soon.

Great condo, easy access to beach

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at your condo, thanks so much for sharing it with us! The beach was easy to get too and we loved the heated pool. Several restraunts next door were delicious and it was nice not to have to drive anywhere for dinner. Our 1 yr old slept in a pack-n-play in the bunk area which worked out quite well. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the ocean. It was nice having the elevator and washer and driers right near the condo. The beach chairs and umbrella service were AWESOME, especially since we had other stuff to carry for the little one. We loved this place and really hope to return here in the future!
