About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12-17)

Daniel Dunes is located on the beautiful Emerald Coast of the Florida Panhandle. Surrounded by Deer Lake State Park, Eastern Lake to the West, and the Gulf of Mexico to the South; this home backs up to a lake with expansive westerly views of the gulf. From door to sand is less than a minute walk making it easy to head back in for lunch or a nap.

We are social! Find us on Instagram and Twitter for more information about the house and Seagrove area!

This location is one of the best locations in the Seagrove area. Situated between 2 lakes south of 30a, there is very little traffic. The house is on a small cul-de-sac off a dead end road making it ideal for little ones to have fun cycling. Ample bike paths great for rides to the Seagrove area restaurants and shopping; or ride on to Seaside for more activities. Also, Deer Lake State Park is within walking distance and has many trails to explore. Deer Lake is a rare coastal dune lake only found a few places in the world! The beaches are well maintained and never crowded – no need to get up early and put out umbrellas.

Located approximately half way between Panama City and Destin, you have less than a 30-minute drive to either destination. Gulf fishing is available in both along with a large variety of shopping and other activities.

This 5 bedroom/4 bath home sleeps 17 which assumes some guests in the party are children. Please see bedding details to ensure all persons in your party have adequate sleeping accommodations.

About Marina Daniel

We purchased Daniel Dunes in late 2011 and spent a few months updating/remodeling prior to placing it on VRBO with 2012 being our first rental season. This is by far our favorite area to enjoy the gulf - no crowds or traffic and very safe for the kids to play - and the most beautiful beach and ocean! We love being able to share our vacation home with people from all over the country.

Marina Daniel purchased this house in 2011

Best asset for this home were the views and very short walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Daniel Dunes in Seagrove over spring break. The weather was perfect and even though the gulf water was a little cool, we could still spend some time in the water. Thanks so much for allowing us to use all the toys in the garage. That made this house be the best deal on 30A. We have already booked next year and are looking forward to it.

A Beach Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion for the week of Thanksgiving was absolutely wonderful. There were three generations who enjoyed this great house with all of its living quarters. The babies were separated from the grandparents and the teenagers had their own room. The beach was absolutely as beautiful as one would expect from a Florida Panhandle beach, but the owners provided all of the beach toys the three generations could expect from beach chairs, buckets and shovels, kayaks, standup surf boards, crab traps, and the bikes to get from point A to point B without sitting in traffic. A fully equipped kitchen provided us with day to day meals plus a gormet Thanksgiving dinner for 16 people. We actually caught and ate some of the crab we trapped. We also loved the heated pool and great table that we played Uno on nightly. The only down side I can think of is that it gets dark at 5:00 sharp and it's not a very safe to bike after dark with no street lights.

We WILL Be Back!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Daniel Dunes for a wedding and found the accommodations exceeded are expectations. We didn't realize we would have gulf views from virtually every room of the house! And the other rooms overlooked the lake which wasn't bad either. So, there was no fighting over which couple took which room at all. The beach was also much closer than we expected which was nice for those of us with bad knees. We didn't get to use all the extras that we wanted to because we had so many wedding activities so we will be back for a true vacation next time. Marina is a wonderful host and always provided recommendations for local favorites in the area. Excellent and fast response by text and phone which was very much appreciated. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!!

So Close to the BEACH!!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to pay the prices of being gulf front, so we found Daniel Dunes.....lucky for us, Daniel Dunes is practically gulf front! The views are great from almost every room of the house and the walk to the beach is extremely short. The house was very clean when we arrived and had everything we needed plus all the extras in the garage! The location and extras truly make this house unbeatable. Thanks for sharing your home!

Finally found our annual vacation rental on 30A!

  • 5 of 5

We've been looking for the ideal house for our annual vacation and we are happy to report that we finally found it! Daniel Dunes fits our group of 3 families and is so close to the beach - that's really what sealed the deal! Our kids had fun with the paddle boards and kayaks included with the house, and those will be great as they get older. We liked being close enough to Seaside and Rosemary to bike there, but not be in the crowds of either of those areas. The beach by Daniel Dunes is still like the old quiet beach community that Seagrove used to be when I was young. It was great to be a 30A guest at Daniel Dunes!
