Overview

Dune Allen Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Nestled in the quaint community of Old Florida Cottages, is the Medallion House. A perfect retreat for family and friends. Right outside the front door is the heated pool, with covered Lanai and bath house. While you watch the kids play in the pool, you can grill fresh seafood purchased from Goatfeather's Fresh Fish Market - a short walk from the house. After dinner, stroll to the end of the street to enjoy breathtaking sunsets at the beach. Soft white sand and emerald green waters await you in the morning as you begin a day of relaxation and enjoyment. Walk to Gulf Place for lunch and shopping. Enjoy the artists along 30-A as you explore the many different communities, with a variety of architecture and style. Bike or drive to Grayton Beach and Seaside or head toward Destin and shop at the Silver Sands Outlet Mall or Destin Commons. There is always something fun going on in Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin.

Inside the house, first floor, you will find two bedrooms - one Queen, one full -sharing a bath and a King Master where you can enjoy your morning on the deck off the master bedroom. The second floor is open with living, dining, kitchen and another full bath. Delight in the seabreezes blowing as you sit on the covered porch off the kitchen. The top floor is a loft with two twin beds. All bedrooms have a television.

This home is a great place for gathering or retreating. You may never want to go back to the 'real world' again!

About Julianne Hudson

Three Architects from Chattanooga TN bought this house new for family retreats and would now like to share their blessings with you.

Julianne Hudson purchased this house in 1999

Why Julianne Hudson chose Dune Allen Beach

Once you visit, you will understand....tranquility, convenience, beautiful beaches and a fantastic neighborhood!

What makes this house unique

The pool and grilling area are just across the drive, steps from our front door. Large enough to have 'alone time', shared enough for groups to enjoy. Beach just at the end of the street and fresh seafood at the Goatfeather's Market, just outside the neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I never wanted to leave here! The Medallion House is large enough to have some alone time even with the family and the neighborhood is safe for the children to run or ride around alone. I could sit on the upper deck, listening to the stereo, cooking and reading while keeping and eye on my children in the pool. Easy walk to the glistening white sands and beautiful turquoise sea. All the neighbors are friendly and Goatfeather's is an easy answer to dinner everyday...either in the restaurant for the market to buy fresh seafood and cook on the grill. It's one of those places that you never have to get in your car to enjoy a relaxing and fun vacation!

Great vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Although the house was nice last year there were some nice upgrades made since last year when we came down. Our stay was wonderful and the weather was beautiful! This is fast becoming a tradition for our whole family! The recommended restaurant list was very helpful; we liked the places we tried based on it.

A GREAT vacation destination for my family!!

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a week-long stay at the Medallion House and we couldn't be happier! The home is truly a gem in a sea of over-priced condos in Santa Rosa. My family and I stayed there for a family reunion, and the 9 of us were equally impressed with the location (3 minute walk to the beach), layout of the house, awesomely 'cool' air conditioning systems, and just the over-all ambiance and feel for the Medallion House! The house was well stocked with clean linens, flatware, pots, pans, and anything else a family needs for a home-away-from-home vacation.
We even hosted a dinner for 27 relatives one evening and had NO problems finding room for everyone to have a seat and enjoy a night of dining and reminiscing :-)
The owner was a joy to work with while I was planning our trip, and I will HIGHLY recommend to my beach-going friends that they put this house at the top of their list for a trip to SRB!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a 3 week stay at the Medallion House in the Old Florida Cottages subdivision, and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We had friends and family join us for various times and everyone of them loved the home! I have to admit that after reading the negative 2011 review entitled "Renter Beware", we were a bit apprehensive. However, all concerns were quickly erased once we arrived and went through the house. The Medallion house is a wonderful beach home with plenty of sleeping room (3 bedrooms, plus a great loft with 2 twin beds), a great sized and well-furnished living room, well equipped kitchen with an eating bar, and a dining room table big enough for 8. The mattresses were firm and comfortable; the sheets, pillows & bedspreads were clean; nothing smelled of smoke; the house was clean with comfortable casual furnishings. It was very convenient to the grill and pool located just across the street. The reviewer was correct that the kitchen is on the second floor so you need to walk down one floor to go to the grill, but it was no big deal even for an old guy like me. There was a television in every room, and while it is true that they are not LCD flat screens, they were serviceable (we watched a couple of elite-8 games and several movies on them). Besides we really didn't come to the beach to watch TV. I honestly can't account for the negative review except that it might be possible that the reviewer was expecting the Ritz Carlton instead of a beach house. I would recommend Goatfeathers' fish market to bring home shrimp or other fresh seafood to grill if you didn't catch your own (or they will steam the shrimp for you). If you are an oyster fan, they also have a good happy hour special on raw oysters.

We love the area and the house. The Old Florida Cottages is a small subdivision with wonderful amenities including a heated pool if the Gulf is too rough or the weather a little chilly and two gas grills which are a great place to meet other vacationers. We have stayed in one other house in the Old Florida Cottages and the furnishings in the Medallion house were comparable. I would imagine you could find a place that is more plush, but not anywhere close to this price. And the owner was gracious and so great to work with in every aspect of our stay. In short, we would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone looking to spend time visiting the wonderful beaches along 30A.

Great property for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at the Medallion House and we definitely recommend it for the price. The layout worked great for our family with the bedrooms being downstairs, kitchen & living on the 2nd and a loft on the 3rd level which the kids used as the playroom. We felt like we could spread out and it was great to be in a stand alone cottage rather than a condo. The place was well equipped and it was just a short walk to the beach. We will definitely try and stay at Old Florida Cottages again. What a hidden treasure!

Comfortable Home & Beautiful Beach

Comfortable Home & Beautiful Beach
  • 5 of 5
This property met our expectations and gave us plenty of room to move around. The house was very clean upon our arrival and nice and cool! We have stayed in this neighborhood before (different property) and have been coming to this particular beach for a number of years. It was nice to be located directly across from the pool and the BBQ. The loft was larger than we expected and was able to accomodate all four kids - 2 in beds and 2 in sleeping bags on the floor. This was the first experience we have had using VRBO and it was a smooth process. The owner(s) were very easy to deal with and promptly answered any questions we had during the process. I would recommend this property for anyone looking to spend some time at the beautiful beaches along 30-A.

Renter beware!

  • 1 of 5
Unfortunately, this listing is totally misleading. The beds were very old and rock hard with unlaundered bedspreads and old, lumpy pillows that smelled of dirty hair. There is a queen and a full, not 2 queens. The king bed in the master squeaks with every move and certainly isn't "plush" as described and it smells of cigar smoke. The tv's are 32" or smaller and very old - some even had vcr players on them. The main tv remote control is held together with tape. Upon our arrival, there was one trash bag, half a roll of paper towels & 2 1/2 rolls of toilet paper for our 5 night stay with 5 people. After requesting more from the owner, we got 2 rolls of TP, 1 trash bag, 1 paper towel. One of the kitchen burners was broken, all the appliances are old. The disposal didn't work and the kitchen sink drained very slowly. There were only 3 bowls for cereal. If we tried to open the windows, they fell right out. The master french door wouldn't open. The 2 bikes that were there were broken. They describe the top floor as a "loft w/a spectacular view of the ocean". This just is not true. There is no ocean view whatsoever (from the loft or anywhere else in the house) and the two "twin" beds in the loft are tiny futon-type pads. The owners smoke as is evident by the ashtrays and a picture of themselves with him smoking a cigar and the whole place reeks of stale smoke. All of the furniture is very old and uncomfortable - of garage sale quality. We could not unpack our clothes because the dresser drawers were sticky and smelly. All of the light fixtures are outdated (either dim or fluorescent) and the place needs a good overall facelift. They did have some very nice art work on the wall. The walk to Gulf Place is a good 10 - 15 minutes, fine in the spring, not worth it in the summer. Had to go down 2 flights of stairs from the kitchen to get to the grill by the pool. We feel that we were really ripped off and we could not, in good conscience, recommend this property to anyone to waste their money on. There are too many other fabulous places in the area to compete with this misleading listing.

Owner's Response: Thanks to those of you that have responded positively, and have consistently booked at The Medallion House. We, as the owners, have just completed our first year with VRBO and have been pleased that we can offer an affordable, comfortable, clean, safe refuge for your vacation. We appreciate all that are conscious of our requests for renters to maintain the smoke free home as if it were there own. Obviously, this is not the house for everyone. However, more than not have expressed great pleasure in the location, the customer service, the comfort and the home itself. We appreciate you and for referring us to your family and friends!
