Overview

Dune Allen Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Adorable cottage in Dune Allen (Santa Rosa Beach) located 1 SHORT block from the beach (you can hear the waves crashing when the door is open).

Recently renovated (2012) and in great condition, this beach house is perfect for a family with kids. This is a traditional beach cottage-- low maintenance, attractive and just what you need for a nice, relaxing vacation!

There is public access to the beach one block away and once you're done enjoying the white sands (or any time you like!), you can enjoy the private outdoor shower; grill; and relax in the fenced-in yard!

Bring your bikes and enjoy the 18 mile bike path along scenic Highway 30A.

This property is in a residential area, away from the 'party scene' of Destin, but close enough that you can drive in for shopping or a movie on a rainy day. The cottage is within walking distance of a large convenience store, restaurants, and locally-owned shops.

The bedroom has a queen bed and flat screen television; two twin beds in main living area, comfy couch, 32' flat screen television w/cable and dvd player, fully-equipped/updated kitchen, dining table seats 4, off-street parking, private/fenced-in yard, minutes away from outlet mall.

About The Owner

I'm a sales rep based in New Orleans and cover a large southeast territory. When I'm not working, I enjoy boating, fishing, traveling and spending time with my family.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

Why The Owner chose Dune Allen Beach

I grew up traveling to this area most of my life and fell in love with this little cottage. It has just the right feeling of old school Florida with just the right ammenities to make it new school. My family has lived in Santa Rosa Beach area for the past 12 years and own and operate a small business in the community.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was the 3rd year my husband and I stayed in The Cottage for a month - 3rd time was the charm weatherwise. We have come to regard it as our "2nd home", that's how comfortable it is for us. This is our time to just "be", reconnect, enjoy each other, long walks thru the neighborhoods in the area, relax, read, eat fabulous food in the local restaurant. The place is cozy, inviting and well equiped, it even has beach chairs and towels. My husband fishes almost everyday in the Destin area, where we have vacationed with our family for many years. Anyone looking for a relaxed, simple lifestyle, won't be disappointed here. We're discussing 2 months for next year.

Old Florida charm with everything you need!

My family's second stay at the Surfer Cottage was even better than the first! Nostalgia abounds in this little charmer, perfect for a couple or a family of 3 or 4. It reminds me of the places I used to go with my parents when I was a kid. The kitchen is well stocked, two minute walk to the beach, a new outside shower, comfy beds and lots of light. We LOVE it and will definitely continue our visits there!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was the 2nd year my husband & I spent 4 wks at The Surfer Cottage - we love it! It's perfect for 2
retired people seeking a quiet get away. The cottage is well equiped for cooking in or grilling on the
Weber. The local restaurants are wonderful - Stinky's, Local Catch, Louis, Louis, Red Bar, Old Florida
Fish House and St. Rita's Fish Fry is great. We have walked miles thru neighborhoods and the trail
along 30A. The locals & other snowbirds are so friendly & stop to chat. It's truly a perfect get away.
We have enjoyed exploring all the little beach villages from one end of 30A to the other & each has it's
own "vibe". Meredith & her mom couldn't be more accommadating.

Informal and fun

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed the Surfer Cottage very much. It was a nostalgic and somewhat retro fun place to be. Location very close to the Gulf (only half a block) and near good restaurants were pluses. The two small benign lizards residing outside on the patio were quite interesting to watch, and the outside shower was greatly appreciated after a day at the beach. Ceiling fans were much appreciated by us since we preferred not to use air conditioner.

Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I LOVED this little cottage. It's situated just a short walk from the beach, which we mostly had to ourselves in early May. The cottage is just as described. It's simple and quaint, with more than enough room for 2 people. It was just what we wanted. It has a small patio area where we read books in the afternoon and grilled burgers at night. The kitchen comes equipped with basic cooking supplies so that you can enjoy stay-in meals.

Meredith - the owner - was such a great host. She called me before I reserved the property to describe the cottage to me and then called again when I arrived to ensure it met my needs.

The cottage is on the less-built-up end of 30A. There are residential streets and walking paths nearby which we took advantage of when we wanted a morning stroll. Stinky's Fish Camp is a short walk away and has great seafood. Within a short drive are a fresh juice bar, Hibiscus (great breakfast spot), The Red Bar (great dinner spot), Santa Rosa Golf club, and of course Seaside.

Spring break 2013

  • 5 of 5
Really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, despite bad weather. Great location, could walk to beach with coffee or cocktail. Close to golf course and walking distance to Stinky's - and Gulf Place. We were there for spring break but wanted to be away from the crowds - so perfect for my husband and me. Cute, quaint, well-supplied with everything you need, including grill and beach chairs! Meredith is a great "owner," checked to make sure everything was OK - highly recommend.
