Dune Allen Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

All inclusive weekly rates! Rent Directly from an Owner who Cares!

Fancy Free---A Luxury Florida Cottage in Beautiful Santa Rosa Beach --High-speed secure wireless Internet Access,Pet Friendly small dogs only!! Fancy Free is owner managed. Deal directly with the owner who is quick to respond to any of your needs. 'This is my second home and it is important to me that you are happy!'

Located between Seaside and Destin in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach, Fancy Free is a 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath cottage that is part of a small Family Oriented neighborhood of only 75 cottage style homes called Old Florida Village. A community pool a couple of houses down makes keeping tabs on those loved ones especially convenient, and beach access is a short walk (.4 mile).

This 'Smoke-Free' Florida Cottage-style home features clapboard siding, a tin roof and 4 covered porches. Morning coffee and gentle sea breezes can be enjoyed in comfortable outdoor furniture off the private porches. The cottage is professionally furnished and decorated with overstuffed casual yet elegant furnishings that create a classy Caribbean beach ambience. The cottage comfortably sleeps 8 with one King bed, one Queen,and a twin over full bunk with trundle.

Our location is convenient to fine dining like Bud and Alleys and The Pizza Bar in Seaside, Criollas in Grayton Beach, and Stinky's in Dune Allen, and Fish out of Water in Watercolor as well as funky dining with great jazz at Picolos and the Red Bar in Grayton Beach. We are within walking distance to Gulf Place with boutique shops, outdoor dining, bike rentals, Sunday night concerts on the green and ice cream at Miss Lucilles Gossip Parlor. The Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club is also nearby with two holes overlooking the Gulf as well as gulf front dining. Eighteen miles of bike paths along the beach and coastal dune lakes make exercise a fun and interesting event. The largest designer outlet mall in the country is a 10 minute drive in San Destin.

Large TVs and DVDs for movies in all bedrooms and the living room provide a nice respite after the sun and surf of the day. For those interested in cyber-surfing, Fancy Free has high speed wireless internet connection. A Sony Play Station keeps even the most rambunctious entertained for hours.

We accept small dogs (under 25 pounds) but please, no cats for owner health reasons.

The best place that I can be is at the beach.

Susan Jacobsohn purchased this cottage in 2005

After visiting many many beaches in the US we came to The Beaches of South Walton on an anniversay getaway in 1998. 2 months later we owned a place in Destin. In 2005 we decided to look for a larger place that we could really spend more time enjoying. We have been in love with Santa Rosa Beach ever since. It is our favorite place to be!

Can't imagine a better HQ for a week at the beach

Can't imagine a better HQ for a week at the beach

This cottage is as lovely as it looks in the pictures. It felt recently updated, was very clean, and came with all kinds of thoughtful little extras (beach toys, beach chairs, a nice stack of family friendly movies and games and a well-stocked kitchen). The owner is friendly, conscientious and very helpful. Old Florida Village is a beautiful, quiet, well-managed neighborhood that's close to a great seafood market and lots of restaurants and shops. Relaxing on nearby, public-access, life-guarded Santa Rosa Beach, I talked to several fellow beachgoers who said that this was the least crowded and best maintained beach they had found in all of South Walton.

IT WAS A GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family had one week out of the entire summer that we could all "clear our schedules/" I am so glad we chose Fancy Free. The cottage was clean and well decorated. We arrived and everything was perfect. Our daughters, ages 13 and 15, each brought a friend, and they had a blast. They would sleep late, beach, and then head to the ice-cream shop right up the block. My husband and I enjoyed the beach all day, read and relaxed. We did rent a golf-cart and beach service for the week. That really is the way to go. My dog Frank! made friends with the cutie next door, and all the folks in the neighborhood were super friendly and sweet. There are shops and boutiques within walking distance, and we had dinner at several local places that were delicious...Everything is family friendly. I hope we make it back in the fall.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was very clean upon arrival. It is convenient by bike to all of the other small beach areas. We enjoyed visiting the little shops and surrounding bars. The neighborhood was a wonderful place, and the neighbors were super friendly. We have never stayed in the area, only visited. We will definitely return and hope to stay at Fancy Free. We could not have had a better family vacation. It was very easy working and communicating with the owners.

Great Time at Fancy Free!!

  • 5 of 5
We always enjoy our yearly visit back to the Old Florida Villages. Fancy Free proved to be a great rental. The house is very nice and great for kids. The property is well maintained and nicely decorated. We love the quite time after 10:00. The owner is extremely helpful with any questions and is quick to respond. The beach is right across the street and bike rentals just down the street. The rental is near many great restaurants and shopping centers. We highly recommend Angelina's, if you like Italian. We enjoyed our stay and will be back again next year!
