About Zenda

We are the Luce family from Brownsburg, Indiana. We bought Summer Breeze after we absolutely fell in love with the 30a area after three trips to the area. We love the the stunning Gulf views of our unit. What we think you will love is how truly friendly and amazing the Santa Rosa Beach area is. The community is a special place to come to and leave the 'real world' behind for awhile.

Zenda purchased this condo in 2012

Why Zenda chose Dune Allen Beach

The view is amazing and after experiencing the laid-back, family-friendly, resort-like atmosphere of Gulf Place, we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. So we made it our home and our goal is to have repeat vacationers who stay at Summer Breeze year after year and make special memories of their own. We have a 'memories book' in our guest welcome guide in the unit and would love to hear stories of how your vacation and stay went.

What makes this condo unique

The view of the aqua blue water against the backdrop of Summer Breeze puts you at ease instantly. Waking up and having coffee in the morning looking out over the Gulf is one of our favorite things to do.

We stayed here for 5 nights the first week of June. As I search for another vacation place, I found it necessary to give a review for here.
The area and condo location: Easy beach access, Stinky's Restaurant was wonderful, short stroll to cool little shops and a great atmosphere.
Beach: Not real crowded in the morning, but in the afternoons it would get crowded. These units were being rented out by some type of childrens cancer event at the time of our visit, and this may have been the reason for the crowding. I would check to see if any events were happening here before I booked. The pools were overcrowded as well (FYI your balcony will overlook a pool).
Condo: The condo was average. It was clean and excatly like the pictures. The bunk bed ladders were dirty, but could be easily cleaned. The top bunk has a sprinkler head on the ceiling; My son hit his head on that a few times. There is not much space on the top bunk. The king size bed was not awesome, but most mattresses are not unless its your own. I wondered why there were no pictures of the bathroom when I was reserving this condo, so I was very curious when we arrived. The bathroom has white tile and grout. The gout is discolored and looks bad, but the rest of bathroom is clean. The balcony overlooks one of the pools and hot tubs, both of which could use some TLC. Also, the fountains in the ponds were not functioning. In the kitchen, the fridge could stand to be replaced. It looks like it has been painted or something and is older. The stove is not the best either, but it did the job. This unit is located across from a laundry room, which is pretty nice if they are available....again......crowded. The light was not working in the laundry room, which was creepy at night (the only time I could use them due to crowding). One of the dryers was making a hideous noise when in use......
Overall, I would give this condo an average rating, but have no intentions of returning. We did not complain about any of this because there was not much the owner could do about these things during our short visit, and we weren't going to let it ruin our good time at the beach.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrea,

Thank you for your feedback on our home in 30a. It is much appreciated and lets us know how we can accommodate our guests better and continue to improve the stay experience. We're very sorry your vacation was not up to expectations as we want anyone that comes to our home to have a great stay.

Gulf Place can certainly get busy at times. I know the Children's Cancer Event you're referring to. That certainly can make for a busy time at the condo's with the kids running around. It supports a very good cause and brings alot of smiles to kids faces who are afflicted with cancer, but I know the noise can be a factor.

Regarding our appliances, this week we had new stainless steel appliances installed. We also had the stairs to the bunk repainted. Being white, they often get scuffed when guests shoes are climbing on them. We are also having the bathroom grout re-done. I appreciate your feedback on this and we are having our maintenance team address this immediately.

The light in the laundry room has been replaced by the condo association. We also had an abnormal amount of rain in the 30a area in April 2014. It caused flooding damage to the pond, pools, and landscaping at the complex. This has been totally repaired. The condo association put alot of work into repairs, unfortunately much of this had to happen over summer of 2014 while you were staying at our home. The pool and spa are better than ever now.

Thank you again for your feedback. We pride ourselves on our home and for being one of the few remaining affordable options left on 30a.

Sincerest regards,

Jason

Excellent Anniversary Stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for our 35th anniversary. This condo unit provided a cozy romantic atmosphere for our visit, and I recommend it highly. It was in excellent condition, and the owner provides everything you could want (including beach towels and a fabulous notebook with info on local restaurants). This is a 3rd-floor unit in a low-rise condominium, so getting down to street level is a piece of cake (your choice of stairs or elevator). Access to the beach is quite easy - there is a public accessway directly across 30A from the condo (once across, it does involve a set of stairs down to the beach), or you can walk east about a block to a ramp-style access (which is handy if you are using a beach cart to tote your chairs, cooler and such down). The 30A area is a fine part of the gulf coast in which to vacation (my wife and I love to bike, so we spent a lot of time over our weekend riding 30A - see our review of the bike trail on Tripadvisor - and there are tons of fine restaurants in the area). We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying in this unit!

Perfect Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We decided last minute to take a small beach vacation this summer as a family. The owners were extremely easy to work with and accommodating. Having never been to the Santa Rosa area before, we really didn't know what to expect. What we got was something way beyond our expectations. The condo was perfect for our family of four. My young daughters loved the bunk beds and felt very at home here. The kitchen was well-supplied with utensils/pots/pans/etc. Beds were comfy, whole place was spotless and perfectly placed for us to enjoy the area. We found it so, so easy to walk across to the beach and spend the day in those sparkling turquoise waters and come back to the condo to refresh and eat some lunch and head back down for the afternoon or evening. We also ate at the Pizza by the Sea and found it really delicious, and we enjoyed some ice cream at Sunrise too. Best thing we did was renting a paddle board at YOLO...so much fun for the whole family. We saw 5-10 dolphins daily, maybe more. Ate at Stinky's...oh my word, so delicious. It was peaceful and refreshing, just what we needed. We loved this place and will be back!

Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5
A great place to stay and celebrate your anniversary. A more laid back atmosphere than some of the surrounding cities. Our favorite thing to do was walk straight across the street, between two houses and down a few steps, to the beautiful white sandy beach with crystal clear green and blue water. We enjoyed strolling on the beach and sitting under our umbrella reading and listening to the waves. We really liked eating at Stinky's Fish Camp and The Donut Hole. A bit of a wait, but well worth it.

Nice Condo. Great location!

  • 5 of 5
Brief stay at Gulf Place with my wife, son, and 5 year old grandson. We also had a 6 year old with us the first night. Nice, clean condo. The kids liked the built in bunk beds. Loved the closeness to the ocean. Just walk the short path across the street and you are there. We ate at Yum Pizza in Gulf Place our first evening and it was good. Also, we were headed to a restaurant in downtown Seaside on Saturday eve but when we arrived there was a festival atmosphere with food trailers and an outdoor movie. We decided to eat at a BBQ food trailer and my wife ate from a grilled cheese trailer. Lots of people were out and about on bikes and walking. We had a great time!
The condo was nice and met our needs but I do want to point out that there is no door on the bedroom so don't expect privacy. We did use the 2 beach chairs and the sand shovel. And, the eight beach towels were nice to have. The owners live near us but we have never met them. They worked with us in fitting into a small gap in the condo schedule.
We loved the beautiful white sand and the clear ocean. What a nice area. I hope we can come back here sometime when we can stay longer.
Thanks Luce family!

convenient

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay, and the condo was very clean and convenient to the beach and restaurants, shops, etc. We had planned on booking another trip this fall, however, after departure, we had to pay for damages, because my husband scrapped his knee and accidently got a little blood on the duvet cover. There were also two shelves in the refrigerator door that were messed upon our arrival, and because we could not get the door to shut properly after multiple attempts, we took the two shelves out. We were told that we did this damage; however, we did not. We simply tried to fix the shelves. When we tried to call the office to discuss this matter further, no one returned our call or my email. We paid the requested amount even though we were only responsible for the comforter. I just didn't want to deal with it further :(
