Overview

Dune Allen Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This bright, airy home off scenic Highway 30-A is just steps from Santa Rosa’s snowy white beaches and emerald waters. With its vaulted ceilings, stone floors, expansive porches, and fireplace, Slightly Shady is certainly no cookie cutter home. This spacious house sleeps 8 comfortably and is shaded by indigenous pines and oaks that preserve your privacy, yet keeps you in the heart of the action.

Slightly Shady offers Wi-Fi and cable TV So you are plugged in and fully entertained.

Enjoy shopping in Sandestin and Miramar Beach, tour the world reknowned Seaside community, or dine at some of the best restaurants on Florida’s panhandle.

A second floor loft with a family room, bedroom, full bathroom, and side porch offers views of the Gulf of Mexico and the Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club, which Golf Magazine called “The purest golf on the panhandle.” Relax on the porch swing, birdwatch with coffee on the upstairs deck, take a bike ride on the bicycle path just steps from the front door, hit the links at one of more than a dozen courses that are minutes away, or take a short walk to one of the world's most gorgeous beaches and soak up the sun.

About The Owner

The Atkinson family was blessed to inherit this beautiful property from our aunt, who fell in love with the area before it was discovered. Unfortunately, she did not live to see the wonderful home that our dad and mom built later for our family to enjoy. We six children are far flung, living coast to coast - in San Clemente, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and New Orleans. With jobs and kids, we are lucky to get to the area once a year, if that. So we have opened our house up for you and your family to enjoy! This year, my sister Juli and I are managing Slightly Shady. I promise to work with you in any way I can to make your stay enjoyable. Come stay at Slightly Shady!

Sincerely,

Bill

Why The Owner chose Dune Allen Beach

This property is in the middle of all the action, but set back just enough for guests to enjoy peace and quiet. The beach is just steps from the front door, with public access directly across 30A. From the upstairs deck, there's a view of the 4th hole of SRB Golf and Beach Club and the Gulf. Ms. Lucilles is within walking distance, Stinky's Fish Camp is about a half mile away, and Miramar Beach is a 10 minute drive.

Another Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second week to stay at Slightly Shady. Loved the upgrades to the appliances. The owners are always very accommodating. We've stayed in many beach homes from Seaside to Seacrest and this is our favorite. We love that the beach is just a quick walk. The house is so roomy that we never felt crowded.

Another Perfect Winter At Slightly Shady!!!

  • 5 of 5

Two months was just not enough last year, so returned for three glorious months this year. I never thought my stay would or could be better than previously, but I was wrong. This vacation home is perfect!! The location, the beaches, the privacy, the porches I could go on and on. If you are looking for a wonderful family to work with and the most amazing (and well kept secret) in Santa Rosa Beach this is the place for you. I had fifty folks visit and stay with me and the house worked great for all....

Great private beach house!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you "Slightly Shady" for a much needed time away from reality.... We enjoyed our stay in the beach house. PCB and Destin are within 30 mins or so from the house. My 3 yr old son and Bishon Lulu enjoyed chasing each other up and down the stairs to the upstairs balcony . I loved sitting in the front porch swing,it felt like home but on vacation. It was clean and provided us with all we needed. The beach was wonderful we carried my son little red wagon ful of toys and had room to play and enjoy ourself. The water was beautiful and clear the whole time we were there. My husband enjoyed surf fishing in the morning by walking out the front door and being on beach within 5 mins. Lairs Club Breakfast, Nick's by the Sea, Donut Hole, and mexican restuarant (rosemary beach) not far to from the house are great eats :) The owner was great to work with via email for questions. We loved it:) Thanks again and we hope to return to "Slighty Shady" in the future.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

So enjoyed our stay in this roomy home! You can literally see the ocean from the second floor deck. It is so close to the beach that we never hesitated to go back to the house for forgotten/needed items. Stocked with lots of nice fluffy white towels. Owners were so accommodating and easy to communicate with. Loved Stinky's and the Local Catch (especially the nachos) for dinner.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time here. The home is open and has so much space. After a wonderful day at the beach (which is literally across the street) we enjoy the evenings on the front porch swing. We can't wait to return next year. Thank you for a memorable family vacation:)

Steps from the beach, pet and child friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful experience staying at Slightly Shady. The owners of Slightly Shady were so kind and accommodating! You are STEPS from what felt like a private beach! The home is super clean, bright, fresh and airy. This is a great sleepy little beach village. Close to amenities- gas, groceries, shopping etc. Our dog, young son, and in-laws all enjoyed staying here with us. If you are planning and dreaming of the perfect beach stay, Slightly Shady is the place to stay! We wouldn't dream of staying any where else the next time we visit Florida.

Slightly Shady is located on the 4th hole of Santa Rosa Beach and Golf Club and just across from the public beach access on 30A! While it provides a peaceful retreat, it's located minutes from excellent dining and all of the amenities at Sandestin and Miramar Beach.
