About the property

Large back porch with view of beautiful cypress pond, 3b/3ba, bikes included!

**Beach cruiser bicycles and pool access included with this rental!

Nestled between emerald gulf waters and the pristine coastal wilderness of Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, Cypress Dunes offers vacationers the perfect balance of peaceful relaxation and rejuvenating activity. Amenities include a gulf-view beach club with resort-style infinity pool, jetted spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, outdoor fireplace and sunset viewing tower. The community also boasts tennis courts (located just across the street from Cypress Haven), walking trails and a recreational lawn area. Beautiful beaches can be accessed at numerous points along Scenic Highway 30A, the nearest of which is just less than a mile away.

About beach access:

Super cute beach cruiser bicycles are provided at the home, free for our guests to use! Just hop on a bike and take a leisurely ride down the paved bike path along 30A to the nearest beach access off Bishop Ln., less than a mile away. This beach access is beautiful and secluded, accessible by foot or bike, but parking there is very limited. If you'd like to park a car at the beach, just go a little further down 30A (about another mile, very short drive), another scenic beach access with plentiful parking is on the right.

Cypress Dunes is a quiet, picturesque neighborhood that features:

• resort-style infinity pool, overlooking Tops'l State Park and the ocean

• jetted spa

• fitness center

• homeowner grill/dining facility

• outdoor fireplace

• recreational lawn area

• tennis courts

• boardwalks across a pristine black cypress pond

Inside the home:

There are three large bedrooms, each having its own full bath. One bedroom on main, two upstairs. All bedrooms are arranged for excellent privacy and comfort, with clean white linens on large comfortable beds. The back porch is one of the most popular features of this home: overlooking a secluded cypress pond, the table at the back porch is a spectacular spot for dining outside and relaxing. In summer months, our hammock is extremely nap-worthy.

We welcome you to enjoy a week of beach and pool time, sunsets, and scenic views at our beloved vacation home!

About Al Foley (owner), Jane Foley Garver (rental contact, beach enthusiast)

My name is Al Foley, and i currently live in Roswell,GA. A native of the South, I grew up in New Orleans and love the Gulf Coast. As a child, some of my fondest memories were trips to the beach. I have four children and three grandchildren, and now I get to enjoy these trips to the beach with them, as well as my 12 brothers and sisters who are scattered in various parts of the country. Life is good!!

Al Foley (owner), Jane Foley Garver (rental contact, beach enthusiast) purchased this house in 2012

Why Al Foley (owner), Jane Foley Garver (rental contact, beach enthusiast) chose South Walton

I've traveled to the Florida panhandle for vacation on many occassions, and I can't think of a prettier beach in the country. I've dreamed for years of owning a getaway place. When I saw Cypress Dunes, with easy access to the beach and nature preserve, and the appealing Florida architecture, it was an easy decision for me. there are so many added benefits (lagniappe in new Orleans speak), such as the Preserve next door, the restaurants, golf, fishing, surfing, 30A, on and on. This spot has the best of all worlds, all the convenience, yet it's the quietest place along the panhandle. I hope you enjoy the place as much as I do.

What makes this house unique

This home is very spacious, with an open floor plan on the first floor for enjoying family and friends. The best part are the porches, with a large L shaped porch on the back that faces the Cypress pond. It;s the ideal spot for breakfast and dinner, or for that very first cup of coffee in the morning. All the cares of life magically disappear here.

Perfect location in a beautiful community

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

First, let me say the property managers were awesome. Al was beyond helpful. We were scheduled to go to Hilton head but were rerouted and had to book a place last minute. The week of fall break. We loved staying here! The neighborhood is lovely and in a fantastic location. We don't love crowded beaches, so this was perfect. The home is beautifully decorated and was very clean. We cooked often as we have 2 small children under 3 and the appliances were very nice! Over all we had a great experience and would recommend it to anyone!

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

A couple of my girlfriends and I spent 4 nights in this beautiful home and it was perfect. The neighborhood is quiet and secluded (gate entrance) with plenty of things to do. We spent many nights in the amazing hot tub and the infinity pool that looks out into the ocean. This house is in the perfect location, only minutes from the beach! It is easily bike-able if you do not have a car and conveniently this house has plenty of bikes to use.

As far as the house itself, it was everything we thought it would be and more! Each of us got to enjoy our own bedroom and bathroom which were super spacious and comfortable. There is literally everything you need in this house: towels, toiletries, kitchenware, pool and beach supplies etc. I felt at home immediately stepping foot into the house. I would highly recommend this place for families and friends just looking to get away.

Dreamy Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I can not recommend this property enough. The management was communicative and clear and helped us with all our questions and the house and the property as well as the pool, hot tub and gym were perfect. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and spacious. And each of the bedrooms have their own bathroom. The master bathrooms jetted tube was a particular treat.

Each morning we had coffee on the back deck overlooking your own personal cypress swamp and swung in the hammock while listening to birds and frogs. There are no neighbors on any side of this property so you get lots of quiet and privacy. We rode the beach cruisers along the short bike path to the beach and enjoyed the powdery white sand and warm waters. Shopping and groceries and an amazing diner with the best key lime pie are only a short distance away.

I have to say this beach house has it all. I am definitely coming back with my family again.

Lovely Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in this lovely home with our family. Home is larger than it appears in pictures. Really liked the floor plan. Owner was very responsive and helpful. Infinity pool was beautiful. First time to vacation on 30A and we were very pleased. Hope to return to this home and area soon. Really enjoyed visiting Florida during the fall. Highly recommend this home.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay. The owner was extremely thoughtful on checking in to make sure everything was fine. The home is laid out well with a very nice size kitchen and family room. My wife loved the floor plan and the oversized master bath! Really enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking a cypress pond!
