Overview

Dune Allen Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 8

Scenic Route 30A is a special location offering visitors a unique coastal experience. This beach community distinguishes itself from the others with a picturesque array of different architectural styles, superb seafood restaurants and pubs. The entire length and breadth of 30A is to be experienced! On the west-end of the route lies Cypress Dunes vacation community offering an absolutely peaceful setting. This “park like” atmosphere is a result of the surrounding Topsail Hill Preserve State Park on two sides and our vacation home. “On Cypress Pond” overlooks a 200 hundred year old cypress head forever preserved as a wetland. We enjoy our morning coffee in the shade of the upper level back porch overlooking the cypress pond. For our viewing and listening pleasure, we watch the many birds fly by as the clouds move through a blue sky with the tall cypress and pine trees in the foreground. The front porch is for evening cocktails when the sun has moved to the backside. Mojitos anyone?

Another thing that makes Cypress Dunes enjoyable among the Scenic Route 30A communities is the infinity pool and clubhouse that overlooks Topsail Hill Preserve and the Gulf of Mexico - a facility that rivals any resort pool. Our favorite beach is next door at the Park where it is less crowded and an easy bike ride. As part of your stay, it is worthwhile to visit each of the beaches along Scenic Route 30A where public access is readily available. These are great beaches for people watching and admiring the many gorgeous beach homes along the shore.

“On Cypress Pond” is a new, two-story Floridian style beach cottage with the living space on the upper level to better enjoy the views. As with most of the homes in Cypress Dunes, it was built by John Willis, winner of Atlanta’s 2005 best builder award. The home sleeps 8-10 with four bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the great room. The bedrooms have their own bathrooms and include 1 king, 2 queens and 1 full bed; three of the bedrooms have tv’s. The dining table is situated in the center of an open floor plan and seats 8 people. The chef of the family will enjoy a stocked kitchen accented with gorgeous granite countertops with stainless steel appliances, gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. The Great Room is furnished with a set of comfy sofa and chairs that overlooks a gas fireplace and 50” plasma high definition television with a blue-ray player for your movie enjoyment.

Come enjoy all that Scenic Route 30A has to offer and stay at “On Cypress Pond” where you can begin and end your day in peace and tranquility with family and friends.

About Sandy Kennedy

We are midwesterners who look foward to our retirement on the Emerald Coast of Florida. In the meantime, we use it during our limited vacation time and are glad to share 'On Cypress Pond' with other families.

Sandy Kennedy purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Sandy Kennedy chose Dune Allen Beach

We love all things 30A, including the people, white sand, emerald colored water and the beach communities. We chose Cypress Dunes because as campers we love the peace and serenity that is offered in this park like setting. Yet, nearby are all the shops, restaurants and activities a person could possibly desire.

What makes this cottage unique

We love sitting on our back porch in the morning with coffee watching and listening to the birds. After a day on the beach or shopping, we enjoy sitting in the shade of the front porch visiting with family and friends, along with your beverage of choice!

Father of teenage family

  • 4 of 5
Cypress Dunes is a nice community, the infinity pool was great and the second pool is nice as well. There are 3 teenagers in the family, each enjoyed their own room and separate bathrooms. Mom and Dad enjoyed the double sinks and shower in the Master Bath. I would recommend bikes to get to the pool and to ride around in the community. We even rode the bikes to the beach. The house is a short drive to the beach and to the shopping at the outlet mall. On Cypress Pond seemed much bigger than in the pictures. The owners were very easy to work with and answered all of our questions.

PHENOMENAL

  • 5 of 5
We recently were blessed with staying at On Cypress Pond. This visit had to be one of the most relaxing vacation times of all. The trip to the beach was just a short drive away. Topsail State Park is just a short distance from the property. We found staying on the property very rewarding. The tennis courts are so conveniently located that we played tennis most every morning. Then off to the infinity pool we would go. Another smaller pool is on campus, but we found the infinity pool to be so beautiful and relaxing that we continued going back to it. The four spacious bedrooms each with it's own bath allows privacy for couples and/or children. The kitchen is very large and has all the kitchen accessories to make delicious meals. We ate the majority of our meals at "home" even with a nice selections of restaurants available. The sounds of birds chirping and frogs croaking heard each morning from the upper story porch brought great joy to us as we saw our grandson's face light up with each sound. The only drawback we experienced was the living quarters are upstairs and our grandson (22 mos) could not tiptoe so as not to awaken those who required more sleep than he did. Great vacation spot. Thank you Sandy and David

Owner's Response: Pam, we are so glad your family had a wonderful and peaceful stay at On Cypress Pond. You are right about the convenience of the tennis courts being across the street from our vacation home; I really need to take up tennis:) Thanks for choosing our home for your vacation and we hope you return soon.

Amazing House, Wonderful Neighborhood, Great Value

  • 5 of 5
We recently had the good fortune to stay in On Cypress Pond. We've been visiting 30A for the past eight years. The home was the nicest property we've ever found, and the rental process was very smooth and efficient. The home can easily sleep 8 adults (There are four double beds or larger in the home), and possibly a few more children. The community pool has to be one of the top 3 on 30A - very large, with sweeping views of Topsail State Park and the Gulf. The only drawback to the home is the requirement to drive to the beach, or be willing to take a moderate walk or bike ride on 30A to Topsail or Dune Allen. We knew this would be the case when we rented the home, and we had a lot of fun exploring many difference beaches along 30A. Even being slightly away from the beach, the home and amenities were incredible for the price. I heartily recommend this house for your next family vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you Seth for your review! I'm glad you and your family had a wonderful time at "On Cypress Pond." While we often walk and bike to the beach for exercise, we like to drive when we need to take coolers, umbrellas and beach chairs. We hope your family returns soon!

A Week in the Life of Fun in the Sun on Route 30A

  • 5 of 5
I wake up to the sound of singing birds in a bed more comfortable than my bed at home! With my hot tea, I go to the upper deck and enjoy the view overlooking serene green woods and I am in relaxation mode. Time for fun in the sun!! We went to 5 different beaches nearby and loved every one of them...white sand and clear water. We loved our beach walks at Topsail Park...so peaceful. The infinity pool at Cypress Dunes is absolutely stunning. Route 30A is made for bicycle riding and bike rentals were very affordable. We found Stinky's to be a fun place for drinks and the Donut Hole has down to earth delicious food served by fun family workers. We found great shopping in the area, Silver Sands Factory Stores and Seaside. Beaching, biking, walking, eating, drinking, chilling and relaxing...these things made our vacation at Cypress Dunes the best! Thank you, Dave and Sandy, for sharing your home with us!!
