Overview

Dune Allen Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

'Heart of Palms' in the gated community of Old Florida Beach is a quiet retreat for both families and older guests. Just 30 yards from the Community Swimming Pool, 50 yards to the dock on Draper Lake and 100 yards from the luxuriously wide Beach.

Completely remodeled and professionally decorated in Spring 2012. All new Chef's Kitchen, Two Master King Bedrooms (1st floor and 2nd floor), Four New Bathrooms - Master with new jetted tub, rainfall shower in second Master. The first floor has one Master (King) with jetted whirlpool tub/shower and second bedroom (twin beds which can be made into a King for a total of three kings) and separate full bath. Chef's kitchen with all new appliances and marble counters is fully equipped for the gourmet cook. Time saving family-sized washer and dryer is on first floor off of the kitchen.

The second floor has another Master Bedroom (King) with walk-in rainfall shower and french doors to covered balcony. An additional large bedroom has four twins (two singles and one bunk bed) with full bath. From the second floor hallway, step out to the wrap-around mostly covered deck where sunbathers can lounge in the sun or families can share a meal or a nap under the tin-roofed deck. View sunsets over the Gulf from this vantage point.

Nearby, walk to favorite local restaurants: Goatfeathers with local seafood market or Cafe Tango. Just down the road on 30-A, walk or bike to Gulf Place shopping center for more restaurants, ice cream, clothing stores, wine shop or pharmacy. A bike path connects all of the communities along highway 30-A including Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach. The outlets of Sandestin are only 15 minutes drive from here. Golfers may play at the Santa Rosa Beach and Golf Club only 1.4 miles away and other golf courses nearby.

For the nature lover, Draper Lake Preserve edges along the Old Florida Beach neighborhood and has a dock just 5 houses down the street from which you may fish or launch a canoe. Only three other areas in the world have these 'coastal dune lakes' that connect to the ocean through the sand dunes. This shallow channel makes a safe area where young children can play for hours in very shallow water.

The new Northwest Florida Beaches airport (ECP) is an easy 30 minutes away and Destin/Ft. Walton (DSI) is 40 minutes away.

About Harriet Bradley

We have both been coming to beaches on the Gulf from our home in Kentucky all of our lives. Guy is a commercial banker and real estate investor and Harriet has owned her own catering business for over 25 years. We both enjoy entertaining people in our home and love creating places for our family and friends to gather. We have two grown children, three grandchildren and an 11 year old son who came along in our early middle years.

Harriet Bradley purchased this house in 2012

Why Harriet Bradley chose Dune Allen Beach

We wanted a permanent place near our grown children. Our daughter and granddaughter live nearby and our oldest son and his family live in Birmingham. Seems we were renting bigger and bigger homes and finally decided it would be a good investment to buy our own place in Santa Rosa. This is not just a rental unit property for us. It is our home at the beach and so we've put in the amenities and quality appliances and beds that we are used to in our main residence. I've always said that I wouldn't want to stay in a vacation place that wasn't as nice as my own home. It wouldn't be much of a vacation in that case!

What makes this house unique

Old Florida Beach is quiet, being over three blocks away from the main road, protected on one side by Draper Lake preserve and is gated to keep traffic away. Children can easily move around the neighborhood like we used to do as kids. The beach is very wide here and the lake with dock makes for fun hours of fishing or just sitting and viewing the sunlight on the dunes.

Gorgeous

This was our third visit to the area, and second to this specific community. We absolutely loved your home. It was extremely comfortable and absolutely beautifully done with attention paid to every interior detail from the beautiful kitchen, comfortable couch and beds, to the BGE to grill ( we have one at home and my husband was thrilled), art work, fans, rugs etc. Feels like a home, and not just a beach cottage thrown together for renters. We have rented homes every year through vrbo throughout the US and Mexico, and this was the nicest home we have ever stayed at. We would love to stay here again!

A great place to be!

Thank you so much for providing my family (children and grandchildren) with a wonderful week at your home in Santa Rosa. The home was just as it was described "a home away from home"-spacious, comfortable and inviting. Loved the furnishings, from the rugs to the long table in the kitchen, which was perfect for the family. The community itself was very hospitable, which made our stay even more enjoyable. We have enjoyed Santa Rosa for over 15 years but I can say that this year was one of the very best!! Thanks again and hope to see you next year.

My family and I loved this house! It was well decorated. Unlike most rental homes, it had much nicer furnishings and touches. It had great kitchen appliances, too! It was quite close to the beach walk, and the beach was beautiful! I think this is the nicest home we've rented in this area thus far.

Our entire family stayed last week at Heart of Palm and it was fantastic! The home is beautiful and so very accommodating. We literally lacked for nothing. It is conveniently located to the pool, beach and local restaurants and shops.
If your family is looking for a first class vacation home to spend time in, look no further - this is the one!

Beyond my High Expectations...

  • 5 of 5
This home is the first true 5 star home we have rented through VRBO. We rent at least twice a year and have been doing so for quite a few years and this is by far the best we have encountered. Yes the home is beautiful, comfortable and in a great location but the general care and upkeep in this home is so much better than ever to be expected in a rental. It was spotless, well maintained down to the clean porches and trimmed landscaping. The short walk to the pool and beach make it ideal for families with children. The beach itself was spectacular and picturesque. The owners were extremely accommodating and pleasant. There is no reason to look at another home in the 30A area. If this place is available for your intended week, rent it, it is a gem! I will say we flew to the area and rented a car and was very thankful we did. While there are a few things to walk to a car makes life more enjoyable for sure. We were able to make the drive up and down 30A, explore the shops, beaches and restaurants and was so glad that we did because while the entire area is beautiful and unique this home was our favorite spot. We will certainly be back and many times I'm sure.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My stay at 'Heart of Palms' was absolutely perfect! The house was everything I dreamed of and more! My (now) husband and I came to Santa Rosa last week to get married, and this house was perfect for our honeymoon. The beach, pool, and restaurants were all within walking distance. We had several family members and friends in town for the wedding, so we invited them over for dinner a couple of nights. I love to cook and was extremely impressed with the kitchen. It was completely stocked with everything I needed! All of our guests went on and on about how beautiful the house is, and I agree! We plan to stay here every year going forward!
