The view is great. The sand is white and the sky is clear. What else could we ask for? Thank you for some great relaxation.

Convenient location, good space

The space worked well for two families. Definitely spoils you for direct access to the beach!

Great beach rental.

  • 4 of 5

Great central location for shopping and restaurants with bike trail right out the front door. Best feature is direct access to the beach. Outfitted with everything one needs in the kitchen. Plenty of room for our four couple party. Mattresses need replacing and the ocean side porch is not usable as it's in the sun all day. A roof covering 1/2 of the porch would be a great enhancement to a great place. Overall we loved the place and will be back.

Great Location, Great House, Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this location and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had 8 adults and two children and had plenty of room. Easy access to the BEST BEACH I have ever experienced. The sand was white and soft, and the water was clear and deep blue. The beach was not super crowded. We were there the week of the 4th of July and had no problem setting up 4 pop-up canopies at 10am.


The washer/dryer are not full size. Tip: manually run the washer spin cycle a second time, or the towels will never get dry.

Sliding glass doors on the beach side of the house should probably be replaced. Old, heavy, and difficult to slide. Bring WD40, which helped.


AC worked great.

Kitchen was well stocked with every utensil/pot you could ever need.

Modern appliances.

Lots of bath towels.

Easy access to both the GREAT beach and the main road.

Tom Thumb within walking distance for ice & beer.

House was clean, well maintained, and had a good layout.

Beds were very comfortable.

Management company did a great job of communicating pertinent information.

I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends. It is a really great house for the price.

(Here is a tip: Getting to this beach from I-10 on a Saturday afternoon was an absolute NIGHTMARE. There are only two roads: 331 & 293, both are two lane. 331 is under construction and 293 has a toll. We were stuck on 331 for more than two hours and other family members said 293 was even worse because of the back up at the toll booth. Plan your travel accordingly. Next time, I am going to MAKE SURE I am on Hwy 98 before NOON. Even though check in is not until 4pm, we will go to a movie, go shopping, hit the go cart track, go to the public beach...anything to kill time rather than sit in traffic for hours and hours!)

Great one family house steps from the gorgeous beach!

  • 5 of 5

The overall living area was nicely remodeled however the bathrooms could use an upgrade. The water pressure in the showers (outdoor shower included) is next to nothing and is difficult to wash the ocean away after a long day on the beach. The place was overall clean although a pest spray could be useful as we did find one large roach which was easily squished and cleaned up once we caught him. Our cell phone service was very spotty inside the house, but that was mentioned in the info we received, just be warned text messages came through hours late if they came through at all. Overall it was just the house we were looking for and couldn't have asked for better than just a few steps down to the clean white beach and beautiful clear blue ocean. The larger house in between us and the beach wasn't an issue at all as we still got a great view and privacy. The beds were comfortable and extra pillows in the closet a plus with tv's in all bedrooms. Was also great to have a washer and dryer in the house for those humid days when your bathing suit just won't dry on its own! I would stay here again if I come back to Dune Allen beach.
