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.

Please note this is a non-smoking property both inside and outside.

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

Daniel Dunes is a great house at the best location

  • 5 of 5

I'm hesitant to let the secret out but I've gone ahead and secured our reservation at Daniel Dunes for 2018 to be safe. Thanks for all the extras and all the information provided on your site. It was really helpful in planning and nice to know all the items we didn't have to pack! Looking forward to our staymext year!

Daniel Dunes in Seagrove was the best house we have stayed in on 30A!

  • 5 of 5

First of all is all the EXTRAS! You can't beat it! The owners allow use of 2 kayaks and 2 paddle boards and a dozen bicycles. Renting these items for the week would be several thousand dollars, and it was nice just to be able to use them whenever we wanted both in the gulf and lake behind the property. Also, the VIEWS! Marina, your pictures really don't adequately represent the great views from Daniel Dunes. We had 17 in our group and we could all sit comfortable on the deck with a great view of the sunsets. This house is a gem because the proximity and views are basically gulf front without paying the prices of gulf front...and then did I mention the EXTRAS? That makes it a no brainer. We all decided Daniel Dunes will be our top pick for future vacations.

Daniel Dunes Beach House - WOW!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your home! The views are incredible and all the extras saved us over $1000 for the week. This house is so close to the beach but the pictures don't adequately show that proximity. Having celebrity neighbors was a nice surprise! We had a wonderful week!

Perfect views! Great wrap around balconies!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent much of our time on the large balconies looking at the ocean. All the outdoor furniture was wonderful. We enjoyed the 2 large outdoor dining tables to eat in the evenings. This is the perfect house for our group.
