Guestbook comments from the manager

This was submitted by our wonderful "Snowbird" guests and they have already reserved the house for next year!

"This is truly a home away from home!

After a lengthy drive it was so nice to walk into a clean spacious abode that makes you glad you left all the work and worries behind. This is not the sterile environment you can sometimes get with a rental unit. This one smacks of cozy comfort.

No parking lot to negotiate through, no stairs to climb and no elevators to wait for just a short hop from the car to kitchen where there is lots of storage for groceries and snacks.

The spectacular beaches of the Gulf coast are only a five minute walk away yet you are still removed from the noise and congestion that typify beach front rentals.

Great shopping at the outlet mall is just a short drive away or a fifteen minute bike ride and makes for a fun outing."

Perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Dottie's Dune was wonderful! The house was very very clean and spacious, very well kept. We had six adults with us and it really didn't seem cramped at all. Everything you see in the pictures is exactly what the house is. The master shower is somewhat small but not a problem. The beach is only about a two or three minute walk. You can park at the beach but you better get there before 9:00 a.m. if that's your plan. A nice pool is located in the center of this very quiet neighborhood. It might take about 45 seconds to get to the pool. The house was a great location in regards to other attractions. There was so much to do close by. Pompano Joe's was right on the beach with live music every night. There was a place on the beach that rented waverunners. Just a short drive to board dolphin tours. Fudpucker's, which had great food was a lot of fun and also close. Also, try Gilligan's, it's a little whole in the wall place but the food is really good. There is a lot of entertainment really close by. An outlet mall was about a five minutes drive. Panama City is only about an hour away. It was hard to fit in everything we wanted to do in just one week. We will stay here again when we come back to Destin. A great house! Our best trip ever!

Kids First Time at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5
Our kids are 5 and 8 and this was the first time they had been to the ocean. The location of the house was awesome! We walked to the beach everyday and it was no problem. Halfway to the beach was the pool and my kids also enjoyed that. There were sand and pool toys at the house to use which was great that we didn't have to pack those since we were driving from Missouri. The neighborhood is very family friendly and we could ride bikes and walk down the street without worrying about traffic. I am a big clean freak, and the house was spotless! We grilled several nights and it was so convenient because the kitchen was fully furnished with pots and pans, we just brought the food! I would come back here every year, Linda was great to work with and the house and location made our vacation a relaxing family time at the beach!!

The perfect house

  • 5 of 5
This house was much more than we expected. It was perfect for my husband and I, my daughter & her husband and my two grandsons. It was in a quiet area away from all the noise. The private pool was a dream. We spent more time there than at the ocean. The pictures of the house do not do it justice. Would definitely stay there again. My son and his wife are looking at it for next year. Linda was so easy to work with. I don't want to oversell this property because I want it to be available to me for my next trip:)

Great location!

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful stay in Destin. This year we decided to rent a house instead of a hotel room. This was a wonderful decision, and we plan to return next year. The location of the house is great. It is a very short walk to the beach. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. The pool was rarely occupied, so it was like having a private pool. The house was very clean and convenient. We loved having the beach chairs and toys in the garage to use. We really enjoyed our stay, and we hope to rent this house next year.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
I'm so glad my wife and I came across Dotty's Dune. First Mrs. Linda was so easy to deal with, she responded very quickly to emails. The house was just perfect and was in a great location. The beach was a short walk away, the community pool and restrooms were clean, the neighbors were nice, and the neighborhood was quiet. Everything you need is just a short drive Destin Commons, Outlet Malls, Wal Mart, Fudpuckers, McDonalds, and much more. The only complaint I have is we had to LEAVE!

Perfect Home for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house. I hope it is available next time we come to Destin. It is a short walk to the beach. Fully stocked with whatever you need. We loved the bikes and enjoyed riding them around the neighborhood. Very close to the outlet mall and Walmart. The area is nice and quiet and everyone is friendly. This is the perfect place for a little slice of Paradise!!
