About Hank or Sheri Allen

My wife Sheri and I (Hank) live in Alpharetta, Georgia where we raise our 3 children. We knew someday we wanted to retire at the beach somewhere which led our journey to build Sunshine Daydream. The name of our home came from a song. We felt that it made the home perfect.

Owned by Hank Allen and Sheri Allen of Alpharetta, Ga.

Hank or Sheri Allen purchased this house in 2004

Why Hank or Sheri Allen chose Seagrove Beach

We 1st vacationed in the panhandle area in the 80's after we met. We loved the beaches and looked at property every year. Many times we came close to buying, but could never do it. We finally found this lot in the Summer's Edge subdivision and knew this was it. We designed and built this home for families like ours.

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, comfortable home! We would definitely recommend this property. There was plenty of space and privacy for our two families. The children enjoyed the bunk room and short walk to the beach and pools. The neighborhood was clean and kid friendly. This was our first visit to Seagrove Beach, and we were very impressed with the area. Our family is in love with Sunshine Daydream!

Relaxed and Refreshed

  • 5 of 5

A last minute Easter break getaway brought us to this wonderful home in Seagrove Beach. Sunshine Daydream had everything our family of 5 could need or want. We were looking for a warm and relaxing vacation to share some family time together after a long cold midwest winter. One of the most beautiful beaches in Florida just steps away, a choice of 2 pools, one perfect for our younger daughter and bikepaths to nearby Seaside just out the door, we couldn't have been happier with our vacation rental home. Sunshine Daydream is a very clean and comfortable family friendly home that sits on a quiet loop street that lets the kids walk safely to pools and beach. Morning coffee on the front porch, a game of cards and sunsets from the tower deck were a perfect start and end to our days at the beach. My family couldn't imagine a more perfect place to stay in Seagrove Beach or Florida for that matter. My youngest daughter said it perfectly," Can we stay here always?". We will definitely find our way back to Sunshine Daydream. Thank you for helping us make some unforgetable family memories.

Happy Return Sunshine Daydream Customer

  • 5 of 5

My family first stayed at Sunshine Daydream when it was brand new. Our 2nd stay was May 2011 for about a week. We enjoy this home so much we are now looking at purchasing in the neighborhood! The layout of the house is perfect. Spacious, open, functional. The house easily accomodated My wife and I, Mother-in-Law, Daughter-in-Law and three grand kids, and my youngest son and his new bride. They all had a blast!

There were separate bedrooms and bath rooms for all. Privacy was great for the newly weds, mom-in-law, and the wife and I. The kids have a perfectly designed room for them with large built in bunk beds that could accomodate 4 little ones or adults. The upper room worked great for our daughter-in-law and a terrible 2's grand daughter. A pull out roller bed right beside mom was just the ticket. An adult also could sleep on the pull out bed.

We started each day getting everyone fed before heading to the beach. That was easy with the fully furnished kitchen. I'm an early riser so I'd be up and about watching news, reading the paper, and using the wireless internet, handling work stuff, emails, trading stocks before the rest of the gang came to life. After getting a jump on the day I'd have the coffee brewing and breakfast cooking for little hungry mouths when they come walking into the living room/great room area with mom close behind. Then it was off to the beach!

The unit has a storage room with a beach cart great for hailing beach umbrella's, buckets, shovels and sand toys, floaties, rafts and other necessities for roughing it in the gorgeous white powdered gulf sand. A right turn out the front door and minutes later you are in paradise. Best beach in Florida. Family oriented, not crowded, spacious.. When the thirst for sun and surf was satisfied, we'd head back for lunch, get a nap in for the kids, cool down and relax under the decorative fans in each room. The balconies and views are spectacular! Swings, furniture, a great breeze. Only thing missing is you and a cool refreshing drink!

Afternoon was POOL TIME. We'd grab the rafts, tubes, noodles, enjoying either of the two great pools with lounge chairs, tables, umbrellas, bath rooms. G-ma and G-pa swam until the kids were water logged, and everyone was ready for dinner. The unit has a Weber Grill we used for steaks, sea food, burgers and dogs. Sometimes we'd load up the gang and do dinner at great local restaurants instead.

"This is the Life" our grandson said! We couldn't Agree more! TY

Our family loves Sunshine Daydream! We have stayed here several times and it's wonderful. Very upscale but comfortable. Furnishings obviously professionally decorated. White Marble in kitchen and bath rooms. Lots of decks and space for multiple families to spread out. Great front porch and house is wired for music. 3 Master Bedrooms, a bunk room, and a loft. Literally steps from the beach, no crossing any roads, easy with even a stroller. 2.5 mile bike ride to Seaside which means older children can explore on their own. Lots of bike trails to neighboring communities. The house comes with the use of several bikes. We love it!

Wonderful cottage. Really appreciated the proximity to the beach and not having to cross 30-A to get there. The sunset view from the tower is spectacular! Highly recommend this home for a week's stay
