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.

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 The Owner

We purchased this property 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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Beautiful home by a beautiful quiet beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Daniel Dunes. The house was clean, well stocked and very spacious. We spent our days using the kayak and paddle boards on the ocean, enjoyed seeing many ocean creatures (one day we saw 5 dolphins and one of the paddle boards was within a paddle length of a mom & baby dolphin swimming by!), road the bikes for miles everyday, riding through the different neighbourhoods of 30A and played in the pool whenever we could fit it in. We really enjoyed all the balconies and ate all our meals outside while enjoying the views. We had a problem with the door lock one evening, but it was dealt with efficiently. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a beautiful quiet location on 30A.

Would rent again

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with our family here. We really couldn't have found a more ideal home. Accommodations were outstanding and all the extras were phenomenal!! Any concerns were handled in a very timely manner. We would definitely rent this home again in the future.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 13, included 8 adults and 5 children, ages 7 years to 3 years. Daniel Dunes was the perfect place for us. Plenty of room to spread out! Close to the beach and located on a quiet circle. We had lots of fun in the pool. The kayaks, paddle boards, bikes, beach chairs, ping pong table, and sand toys were an added bonus! We were surprised by the four complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas set up on the beach for us each morning - nice touch! We would highly recommend Daniel Dunes for your family vacation rental.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home. The extras in the garage took it to a whole new level! Great views and super short walk to the beach. The pool was amazing as well. Plenty of room for three families and then some. Thank you for everything, especially answering all of our questions promptly! Will definitely use again.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Such a wonderful family beach vacation. We had 4 families making the trip (from 3 different states with10 kids ages 14 to 3) and there was room for everyone! Location was ideal for quick trips to Publix, fresh seafood and great take-out restaurants! The weather was a bit on the cool side, but the heated pool proved to be worth every $$. The very close proximity to the beach was also perfect for everyone to take walks on the beach, seashell hunting, catching waves, sunsets, starry night walks, etc. The extra equipment that came with the house was also a "perk" - life jackets, beach chairs, wagon & sand castle tools, bikes, kayaks, etc. The house was very clean, kitchen had all the utensils we needed for cooking. Wish the weather had been more cooperative so we could have used the kayaks and actually played in ocean water.......but maybe next time. Priceless memories!! Would definitely book this one again!

If it was in error - no worries - I know how easily that can happen with the VRBO/Homeaway interface :).
