About Dune Real Estate Company

We bought this home in 2001 and moved here permanantly in 2003. 'Key Lime' is still my wife's favorite beach home.

Why Dune Real Estate Company chose South Walton

We thought this was the best neighborhood with great beach access when we first vacationed on 30-A. It is a great location close to all that 30-A has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

'Key Lime Cottage' in the much sought after 'Old Florida Cottages' neighborhood.Beachside of Scenic Highway 30-A in South Walton County by Destin and Panama City. 3 miles to historic Grayton Beach and the famous 'Red Bar'.

It was bare bones

  • 2 of 5

First impression was good. But within a day or so it was clear this was just a bare bones place. One toilet paper roll/bathroom. With 7 ppl they were gone within 2 days. There weren't any clean/new sponges to wash dishes. One dish towel, one washcloth for kitchen. Definitely not enough. I didn't go on vaca to do laundry the whole time. The dishes were all chipped. The kitchen knives were flimsy and useless. Very dangerous. The floors were dirty. I'm sure a mop or swiffer jet was run over them but those only push chemicals and dirt around. Our socks were brown by the end of the first day. This goes for carpet as well. The beds were ok. The master bed sunk in the middle. When I looked under it, the metal frame holding the box spring was broken and bent--explaining the sinking. The washer and dryer are ancient. The dryer being the worst. It was all rusty on top and the lint tray was all broken and rusted as well. The frame around the tray was missing so the wire mesh was a hazard when cleaning the lint off of it. Very sharp. (so, rusty and sharp--not a great combo). There was one kitchen trash bag. Were we supposed to buy all these supplies for just 7 days?? The best part was the property management company. Any issues we had they rushed to fix. I appreciated their prompt attention and genuine desire to satisfy. I think if they spent a few days IN this place they'd have a laundry list of mandatory improvements to make. Access to beach is good.

Owner's Response: We strive for our guests to have the best possible experience during their stay. Sometimes in order to achieve this, we need communication from the guest during their stay. It is unfortunate that you experienced these issues and we would have loved the opportunity to correct them for you had we known about them during your stay. We are aware that the washer and dryer aren’t aesthetically in the best shape but functionally they work fine. We are addressing this with the owner, though, so we appreciate your feedback on this matter. Finally, as for the amenities that are provided in the home, we do communicate in all of our materials that we provide a starter supply of each item to get your vacation started and that additional items beyond that would be the responsibility of the guest to purchase. This is an industry standard. Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to Dune Vacation Rentals. We look forward to having you stay with us again and we value your business. Thank you.

Perfect fit for our small family!

  • 5 of 5

Key Lime Cottage was the perfect size for the three of us but would have been comfortable for a family traveling with up to four children (the bunk beds in the guest room are full-sized and the walk-in closet is large enough to set up the port-a-crib that's stored there). The property is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The king-size Memory Foam mattress in the master bedroom was luxuriously comfortable. The kitchen is the best equipped kitchen of any rental we've stayed in on 30-A. Overall, our stay was perfect!

Best Trip Yet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Key Lime Cottage last week. Santa Rosa Beach and in particular Old Florida Cottages is a place we visit at least once a year. We have been traveling to the area for 5 years and this was one of the best trips, thanks in part to Key Lime Cottage. The home is very comfortable, well appointed, and the location is great. It backs to the pool and the grills. The walk from the neighborhood is a very short walk. We plan to return (as always) and hope to book Key Lime again.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this adorable house. It was very clean and nicely decorated. Just a short walk to the beach and right next to the pool. It was perfect for our family and we will be coming back!
