Close to Destin, yet away from the crowds, this home offers an affordable alternative for your family or for two families to share. Well maintained and just lovingly renovated, High Dune has the authentic rustic cedar exterior, yet a completely updated interior. The latest round of updates replaced all the kitchen cabinets, countertops, new washer and dryer, new microwave vent hood, dishwasher and all the tile floors.

The living room / kitchen / dining area is in the center of the home with two bedrooms on each side for privacy.

Sliding glass doors in the living room offer views of the brilliant Gulf of Mexico. Your gulf front deck is outfitted with various furniture for relaxing and listening to the gulf. Because the home is second tier gulf front, portions of the gulf view are blocked by another home. An outdoor shower in a privacy stall allows clean up before entering the house. Private boardwalk to the beach means you have direct access to the white sand beaches.

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.
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.
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!)
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.
This is a perfect place for the price. Had a great time.
The best part of the house is the location! The beach really is just a few steps away from the house. And the area is beautiful!
The house is in desperate need of renovation. The kitchen looks like its about to fall apart. The cabinets smell musty and they were not clean inside, crumbs. The bar stools are too high for the the counter top bar area.
The floors are uneven and we found some extra "visitors" ( water bugs or roaches!) in the twin bedroom.
The bedding needs updating, had lots of bleach stains and was very unattractive because of it.
On the positive side there were enough towels to go around for everyone. The washer and dryer in the kitchen were also great. Not so great was that the washer was too big for the space under the cabinet and so it was a "catch all" for the crumbs during food preparation.
With this house I feel that the price tag was not justified, it was a let down for our family.
My family stayed at this lovely home for a week and loved every minute. It is a great price for a house on the beach with minimal stairs down to the sand (only about 6). We had two 3 years olds with us as well as 3 grandparents. They all felt comfortable and it was so much easier than some of the other homes with tons of stairs down to the beach. It is very clean and had all the ammenities. We hope to stay here again next year!
The pictures don't do this play justice! The house is very well furnished! The kitchen is amazing if you choose to cook in. The living area is perfect as are the bedrooms. While there is not a "perfect" view of the beach, the beach itself makes up for that!!! The walkway is perfect and you just feel like the beach is your's! We were just close enough for shopping and restaurants. The Donute Hole and Christianos were two of our favorites! We'd definitely consider staying here again! Thank you for thinking of your guests as you set up your house!
