Overview

Dune Allen Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom / 1 Bathroom with Outdoor Shower / Sleeps 6

The 30A Love Shack is a charming 2 bedroom, classic 1950s style Florida cottage with brilliant views of Lake Allen along Scenic Hwy 30A. Only 2 blocks from the beach, this short 4-5 minute walk from the front door to the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico is a snap. It comfortably sleeps 6 and is equipped with everything you will need for a week at the beach. The 30A Love Shack is where simplicity meets style in this recently updated retro getaway. The décor is comfortable-utilitarian and the home is just that, cute and clean.

This is a great location for family memories. Watch sunsets over the lake, stroll the quaint streets of Dune Allen, or grill fresh fish on the deck. You’ll love the large outdoor hot & cold shower and picture windows in the living room. Suitable for either families or a couples retreat, this home will meet all your beach vacation needs.

Constructed in 1953, The 30A Love Shack has been undergoing a face-lift since it was purchased in 2012 with upgrades including new roof, electrical, windows, interior appointments and fresh paint and furniture. Don’t worry, the nostalgic charm has been preserved as this cottage still looks and feels like home at the beach.

The open kitchen, living and dining room capture picturesque lake views while the two bedrooms, bathroom and washer/dryer area line the north side of the home. Both bedrooms are spacious and enjoy light shed from the clerestory windows above. You will be comfortable sleeping with hypoallergenic feather down linens and foam gel mattresses - queen in the master and double in the guest bedroom.

This home is the epitome of low-key comfort. In addition to the amenities of Scenic Highway 30A, The 30A Love Shack is certain to offer repose. You will be planning your next getaway before the first one ends.

No pets permitted...Sorry, no exceptions.

About Kathryn Sistrunk

Born and raised in Destin I wanted to own a property on 30A that reminded me of the way life used to be at the beach, and this cottage fit that perfectly. My family has been in the real estate business along the Gulf Coast for over 30 years and location has always been important to us and to our clients. This home is a great spot to build family memories. I only rent it during the summer months then use it for friends and family in the spring, fall, and winter.

Kathryn Sistrunk purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Kathryn Sistrunk chose Dune Allen Beach

Simplistic living with views of the rare coastal dune lakes and short walk to the beach. Close to Stinky's Fish Camp restaurant, Gulf front dining at Vue, and summer live music on the green at Gulf Place amphitheater.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is the only rental on the dead end street of Allen Lakeshore. The beach walkover is very convenient and a short walk and the sunsets from the front porch deck are spectacular.

Wonderful hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay at the Love Shack. It was extremely clean, completely well stocked with everything you might need and very cozy. It was a short walk to the beach and had a beautiful view from the huge windows and deck overlooking one of the peaceful dune lakes. Convenient to everything on 30A. Thanks for a relaxing week.

Wonderful Family Time at the Love Shack

Our family had a great time during our stay. Beach was a 3 minute walk. The afternoons spent on the large deck was great. Shopping, grocery and local eateries are just minutes away. Thanks again!

Perfect! Did not want to leave - Even better than we imagined.

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the 30A Loveshack! Myself, my wife, and our 1 year stayed for a week over July the 4th. The house was a perfect size for our small group. The Loveshack is in a great location just a short walk away from beach access. We love to cook and the house was already well equipped with everything we needed and more. As others have stated, the outdoor shower was a huge plus! The views of the lake out front were fantastic. I was also very impressed with the cleanliness of the home and the ease of the entire transaction. We could not have asked for a better experience.

We LOVED the Love Shack!!

  • 5 of 5
We'd gladly rent from you again. We have two suggestions: per my personal chef (who also happens to be my husband), a bigger stove and a large pot (to boil shrimp or pasta) and per my teenagers (who love to sleep in and whose bedrooms at home resemble caves) some way to darken the skylights in the bedrooms. Otherwise it was PERFECT-thank you for renting it to us. We look forward to coming back!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
I love the front of this little cottage; filled with big windows to let the morning light come streaming in. There's also a beautiful view of the lake. The bird feeder out front offered us wonderful opportunities to view local wildlife. It's nicely appointed with rustic charming pieces and the renovations were smartly done. It was very clean. The bed was comfortable. We were tucked back off of the beach on a dead end street that had a great little neighborhood feel and the walk was not bad at all. The beach area was beautiful. We found plenty of great places to eat. Book it!!!

Lovely Beach Cottage - Perfectly SoWal!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here over the Memorial Day holiday. The cottage is very clean and comfortable with all the amenities we needed for the week. The decorations are very fitting for a 30a rental - cute, fresh and beachy. Even with four people, the one bathroom never seemed problematic. The outdoor shower is nicely enclosed and made the perfect "extra" bathing spot. The lot is very private with amazing views of sunset over the lake. We typically stay in Seagrove or Seaside, but I am in love with Dune Allen after this trip. The location is much more relaxing with fewer crowds and beaches that are easier to access. You are close enough to walk to the beach, but parking is also very easy to find at the end of the road. With a three-year-old, we did walked at times and drove at others.

The only thing I would have liked is a larger stove. The stove is a classic, mid-century mini-model that looks cute but isn't as functional. It was difficult baking some larger dishes throughout the week.

Thanks again! We will be back!
