Overview

About the property

DUNE FINE is a delightful, and extremely popular, raised beach cottage in the Dune Allen Beach area of 30-A. Many know well why the property has earned its name and reputation in Santa Rosa Beach. If not...here's the skinny: Once you've checked in, and kicked back, rest assured you'll be Doin' Fine as well!

Located at the western end of 30-A (closer to Destin than Panama City Beach), but still just minutes from any activity or destination you wish to explore, DUNE FINE is a 3/2 home that offers spacious accommodations for up to six, but manages to capture a feeling of beachy coziness and casual comfort in its first floor, open plan living/kitchen area. The L/R section of the house blends well into the 'galley kitchen' and allows all parties to watch TV, converse, cook, and perhaps, sometime around sunset, share a 'frozen concoction' that your inevitable blender will be happy to render. Bedrooms and baths are somewhat more generous in size than those of other beach homes and, for six people, that's a real plus. A shaded, upstairs balcony with a comfy hammock is positioned beautifully to take advantage of delicious gulf breezes...Well behaved and monitored children are most welcome.

As many of you know there are a variety of beaches on 30-A. Some with lifeguards and chairs/umbrellas set ups, some without, some offering good food just a few strides away, etc...currently, the closest access to the gulf is an easy eight to ten-minute stroll away. One of our best restaurants - Stinky's Fish Camp is a five-minute walk. If you'd like to take coolers, fishing gear and the like, I suggest tossing it all in the car and making the less-than-60-second drive. Many beach spots offer restrooms and outside showers (no need to go back home covered in that sugar white sand).

Flea free, vaccinated, well-trained dogs are welcome (they'll love being able to romp in the large, fenced backyard). You know your dog. If prone to separation anxiety, we ask that you crate your dog when you are not at the house.

PLEASE NOTE: * DUNE FINE IS AVAILABLE ON A 'WEEKLY ONLY' BASIS. WE GENERALLY DO SATURDAY TO SATURDAY RENTALS. BUT CHECK WITH US FOR EXCEPTIONS.

* HOLIDAY RATES ARE NOT INFLATED HERE!

MULTIPLE WINTER MONTHLY RATES MAY QUALIFY FOR DISCOUNT. SORRY, MARCH IS NOT INCLUDED.

Could not have been a more perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house and location was perfect.

The beach truly is a 3 minute...maybe...drive to the public parking right in front of the beach. There was ALWAYS plenty of parking no matter what time we drove over. (we are lazy hence us driving every time). The beach is perfect. It's beautiful. Clean. Not crowded. Has a nice bath house and hose/shower to rinse off with.

The house itself is great. The pictures do not do it justice. It's bigger and brighter. The bedrooms are beautiful and comfortable and the entire house is decorated beautifully. If you have dogs, they will love it too. Any pet lover will love it due to the books/artwork throughout the house. We spent a lot of time on the front porch. The fenced in yard is awesome!!!

There are restaurants in walking distance. A wonderful place to walk in the mornings for exercise....and a perfect coffee stop!

Its great....we will be back for sure!!!!!

Our amazing FAMILY vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Dune Fine! Our 3 children are college age and above and it is difficult to get the whole family together. Dune Fine was such a great house for us and our dogs! I love the hominess of Dune Fine, and the fact that we were not right on 30a. It was a perfect place for us because the beach was just across the way, and yet we could sit in the shade of the balcony/porch and enjoy hanging out. At night, in the quietness, we could here the ocean! We enjoyed some amazing restaurants, as well as, a visit to Goatfeathers market for some steamed seafood that we brought "home" and enjoyed family time. Our dogs loved the great backyard. And we SO appreciate Traci's attentiveness to our needs! We will be returning to Dune Fine!

Couldn't have better!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Dune Fine. It was pet friendly, clean, and felt like home -- and so close to the beach! (Definitely walking distance!) We brought our dog and Traci had everything our pup could need, especially the big backyard he could wander to freely. Sitting on the front porch in the hammock at night was perfect. Dune Allen Beach is a great spot too. At the time of our visit, it wasn't too crowded and there was very little traffic on this section of 30A. Stinky's is a delicious restaurant, and conveniently, even closer than the beach! Dune Fine is such a great home: very comfortable, spacious, and clean. HIGHLY recommended! We will definitely be back.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place! A lot bigger than the pics. The owner left water out for my dogs and they loved the yard. We had a mini family reunion with my mother and brother from up North and they were impressed. Not in a "tourist-y" area - quiet and peaceful. Close enough to the beach to walk. Already planning our September trip back! Thank you!

We Did Dune Fine Again

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Dune Fine. We love this house its perfect for our kids and dog. The weather was fantastic every day, the beach is in walking distance and being able to just amble back afterwards in this quiet part of 30A was great. This place was great we had such a nice relaxing spring break aftera tough winter!
