Why Elizabeth Lowe chose Dune Allen Beach

We have been vacationing in the area for many years and love this area of the beach. Very quiet and relaxing yet close to all the activities, including the beach!

What makes this house unique

Short stroll to the neighborhood beach access, which is located right across the street. Huge front porch with view of the gulf.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying here, but we will be back! The house was very welcoming, clean and comfortable! We enjoyed our family time, and spent the vacation relaxing. These days it's hard to get quality family time, so it was very nice to have this getaway! The water is gorgeous, I cannot believe how beautiful the beaches were! Staying on this property you actually have your own private beach, literately! My four-year-old is already asking when we're going to go back! I highly recommend this place to stay for a beautifully relaxing trip.

Lovely Beach Getaway

Very beautiful house, excellent amenities. We really appreciated the beach umbrellas and chairs being from out of town. We would love to stay here again in the future!

Absolutely LOVED Laughing Gull

  • 5 of 5

Laughing Gull is perfect for friend/family gatherings. The common areas are spacious with seating for everyone at the table and in the living room. A bathroom with each bedroom is luxurious! The kitchen is very well stocked. Everything was absolutely immaculate when we arrived. We began and ended every day on the expansive porch that overlooks the Gulf, listening to the waves and staring at the stars. There was always a breeze on the porch! The walk to the beach is nothing, across the street where we maybe saw three cars pass all week. The private path leads to what seems like a private beach. Clear water and white sand. We paddleboarded in the Gulf and nearby Western Lake (Grayton Beach). We biked to Topsail and Grayton (bike paths the whole way). We walked to Stinky's. Other restaurant recommendations are a quick drive or bike ride: Local Catch, Red Bar, Another Broken Egg, Chanticleer, Bad Ass Coffee, and The Donut Hole (get there early for cream and peanut butter filled doughnuts!). Shrimpers Seafood Market and Publix are also nearby. We came from Pennsylvania and Colorado and thoroughly enjoyed the South Walton area... you want to stay here!

The best of the best

  • 5 of 5

The Laughing Gull is one of the most comfortable beach houses my family has had the pleasure to enjoy. Beautifully decorated with a floor plan that gives each bedroom it's own space. Our granddaughters enjoyed the bicycles and had a safe place to ride in the quiet neighborhood. The grownups took full advantage of the beach chairs and was grateful for the cart used to get all our stuff to the beach. We had a week of the most beautiful water, calm and blue, we have ever experenced. This was our first time to visit Santa Rosa Beach and are hoping it won't be our last. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house.

Relaxing Getaway-Weekend with Girlfriends

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful Beachhouse in quiet Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. This gem of a beachouse is nestled on a very quiet road directly across the street from the beautiful beach and waters of the gulf. One of my favotite spots to sit in the morning and at sunset was the front porch. The water is in full view, there are plenty of choices for comfortable seating. It is a great place to sit and relax or enjoy conversation. Another plus is the openness of the living area of the house. And, each bedroom has its own bathroom which is a huge convenience. There are many great local shops, art gallerys, restaurants, coffee and wine cafes just a short drive away at Seaside and WaterColors. There is a great family restaurant within walking distance.

I left Santa Rosa feeling completed relaxed after a wonderuful getaway. I look forward to another girl trip in the near future. And, I am hoping to plan a family vacation with my grown children and their families. It is an ideal vacation home and location for all ages.

Lauging Gull is a perfect vacation home, whether you choose to stay on the beach and completely relax while enjoying the water, or venture out to the villages for shopping and festivals.

Thank you so much for such a fantastic! getaway!!! Lauging Gull was even better than expected!!!!
