SOUTH OF 30-A & CLOSEST HOUSE TO BEACH!

Dune Allen Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

'Time Out' is the closest cottage to the beach in this family-oriented community of Old Florida Beach Cottages. Brick pavers, white picket fences, and tropical plants greet you upon arriving into this relaxed, friendly neighborhood.

On the ground floor of the cottage you will find the spacious master bedroom with a French door which leads to a front porch furnished with comfortable wooden Adirondack chairs. There is also a master bathroom with a separate tub and shower. Just down the hall is the second bedroom with an adjacent full bathroom. A hall storage area is the perfect place to find beach and pool toys that are there for our guests to enjoy! Upstairs is a large living area with ample seating for everyone. Open the French door and enjoy the breeze and the rustle of the nearby palms while relaxing on the porch just off of the living room. An open kitchen/living room allows everyone to visit while cooking up the catch of the day! A third bedroom with a view of the Gulf is located just off the kitchen with a bathroom across the hall.

Time Out Beach cottage is professionally decorated, very clean and well-maintained, closest cottage to the beach, steps to community pool, and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping!

Carol Ross loves to unwind at the beach when she isn't coaching her WNBA Los Angeles Sparks basketball team. The beach has been a place for her to relax since her college Spring Break days. I'm her sister, Martha, and I manage the property for her.

Martha Smith purchased this cottage in 1999

This area has so much to offer a vacationer...beautiful white sand beaches, water activities, fishing, biking, shopping, great restaurants, night spots, hiking through nearby trails of Pt. Washington Forest, golf, tennis, water sports, boating, just to name a few. If you like art and music, you will be in for a treat at the nearby Gulf Place (within easy walking distance). There is an outdoor art market as well as free outdoor concerts.

This cottage is within walking distance of great shopping and wonderful restaurants. There is a top-notch bike path for riding over to Grayton Beach or Seaside. The beach access for my cottage is just a 3 minute walk with lifeguards on duty. I love having the pool on days that I just want to lounge and swim!

Emerald Coast Big Success!

We enjoyed our 2 weeks at Time Out Beach Cottage on Santa Rosa Beach. The house is an easy access to the fabulous beach for morning walks, afternoon reading, and evening sunsets. Our best dinner was at the Vue - delicious. Lunch at Red Bar at Grayton Beach was also fun for burgers. We enjoyed hiking at the local parks on 30A. The house was clean, well appointed, with comfortable beds. We had a minor issue with the wifi being secure and Martha responded immediately. Thank you.

Wonderful Vacation!

We enjoyed our stay at Time Out. Love the proximity of the house to the beach & the fact that it is pet friendly! We were able to bring our 4 month old son and our 4 legged "daughter"! The weather was so nice, we left the top balcony door open and our pup loved sitting out on the deck watching people and cars go by! Every morning we either walked to Gulf Place via 30-A or by the water on the beach. When we come back to santa rosa beach, we will consider staying in this same house - if not Time Out, we will definitely say in the neighborhood!!!

Memorial Day Weekend

We stayed at this property on Memorial Day weekend 2013. The property description and photos are very accurate and a good representation of the actual property. When we arrived, the cottage was very clean and well-maintained. In fact, it is probably the cleanest rental we have had in the past 4 years in the Destin area.

Renting from the owner was very easy. Everything was handled via e-mail. We could go directly to the cottage when we arrived; not having to got to a rental agency to pick-up a key was great.

I really liked the location. I preferred the more laid back and quiet of Santa Rosa versus the more hectic area of being in Destin. The only thing to make it "perfect" would be if the cottage was directly on the beach. However, I didn't mind the 5 minute walk to the beach [you are already on the beach side of 30-A]. The family enjoyed an afternoon trip to Seaside which is a few miles away.

I would definitely consider renting this property again.
Owner's Response: Thank you! Your feedback really helps future renters make an informed decision. A clean property has always been a top priority, and it's nice to be complimented on it. I'm so glad you had a great vacation, and thanks again for choosing Time Out.

Cute Cottage

We enjoyed staying at Time Out Cottage. It's in the front of the community and right down the street from the beautiful white sandy beach! We were there for a wedding and actually had another group of friends stay in another cottage in the same community. They liked ours a lot better. We had the living space on the top floor and this actually made the home brighter. Our living space was a lot larger than theirs and they were envious that we had a large flat screen TV. The owner was nice and very easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again if we came back.
Owner's Response: So glad you had a great experience! We believe in Southern hospitality!

Our vacation with Tropical Storm Debby

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 30, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
The photos and description of this house aren't nearly as wonderful as the real thing! It had everything we could have wanted including lots of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, cooler, and beach cart. It is decorated beautifully and very comfortable. The walk to the beach is very easy, the pool is just around the corner, and the little village is very charming.There is a rental store across the street from the village where we rented bikes, and we had a blast riding along bike paths and to the beach.
Communication with the owner was always very prompt and informative. We arrived the day Tropical Storm Debby was headed toward the area and we weren't sure we were going to be able to stay. We e-mailed her about getting a refund on the unused nights, and she told us it wouldn't be a problem. She was even willing to meet with us on our way out to give us the refund so we could still do some fun things on our vacation back in Texas. Fortunately, Debby moved away and the rest of the week was beautiful and sunny so we were able to stay and have a wonderful, relaxing vacation. I would recommend this house to my family and friends, and we hope to return next year.
