About Rick Sunderland

We live and work in Atlanta. Sharon is a Registered Nurse and Rick is in Data Processing. We have been vacationing in South Walton since 2006 and love it. We spend as much time as we can at the beach. We Kayak, fish, walk and relax at the beach. We enjoy nature and the great weather. We love 'Hold Your Seahorses' and have enjoyed making the cottage fun and comfortable for you as well as ourselves, our kids and grand-kids.

Rick Sunderland purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Rick Sunderland chose Dune Allen Beach

We have stayed at many houses in Santa Rosa Beach since 2006 and we have loved it very much. This is our choice destination for vacations and family get-togethers. Purchasing this home in Old Florida Village was an easy decision.

What makes this cottage unique

Three of the main reasons we love our cottage. (1) We relax and enjoy the quiet and the sounds of nature. Enjoying coffee on the porch overlooking Hidden Lake and the birds is delightful. (2) We enjoy the beach very much. The beach during the day is delightful and walking to the beach for the sunset is a real pleasure. (3) We enjoy kayaking in the lakes, rivers and the ocean. A great pleasure is paddling at Grayton Beach just three miles east on 30A.

Perfect vacation for our spring break

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Hold Your Seahorses. The place is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for our week there. The neighborhood is family oriented and felt very safe. The beach was not crowded and the sand is so soft and white! I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Love the area because it isn't a dumpy beach town with tons of touristy strip malls. It isn't overdeveloped but retains the natural beauty of the region. Owners were a pleasure to work with and made the whole process smooth. Great choice!

Awesome Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I were fortunate to stay at Hold Your Seahorses this March. What a wonderful experience it was! The cottage was clean and brightly decorated and furnished with anything we might need for a fun vacation. It was great to have coffee overlooking the pond in back and to be able to see the different birds that came. It was a short walk to the beach and also to restaurants nearby. We were able to explore 30a which was a unique experience. The neighborhood was peaceful and pretty. The owners were great to work with. We definitely want to go back!

Hold your Seahorses

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Hold your Seahorses. The house is clean and in a nice location. The beach chairs and umbrella provided are a great perk for going to the beach. The owners are super nice and very responsive to any issues. We really enjoyed our stay and have already recommended the house to friends.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. Almost anything you can think that you would need was there. The set-up was great and comfortable. Close to the pool and an easy stroll to the beach and restaurants. Loved it!

Very comfy

  • 5 of 5

A very comfy home with everything we needed for parents and 20 month-old, and grandparents. We fixed most of our own meals using oven and BBQ grill. Beach was a little further than we expected (10 minute walk). When we drove, we found parking at beach good at 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Appreciated the provided beach chairs and umbrellas, making beach time very comfy. We had a wonderful time. Nice and clean when we arrived (I do think including toilet tissue would be appropriate, and not relying on previous guests).
