Overview

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 Dune Allen Beach

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.

Idyllic, exceptional

  • 5 of 5

Stunning home with every amenity one could need, beautiful neighborhood with access to boardwalk, pool, and hot tub, quick bike ride to the beach! I was wowed over and over by this property and the surrounding area. The house is wonderfully spacious and beautifully designed. It's paradise.

Great rental!

This is our fifth trip to Cypress Dunes. It's the best location and community on 30A. This house was very comfortable and inviting. It had everything we needed. They were very responsive to all our inquiries and needs!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this home and we couldn't have been happier to be back. The house is in such a great location close to beautiful beaches that aren't crowded, shopping in Destin and plenty of great restaurants. We also love the subdivision's infinite pool. We can't wait to come back.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I am late writing this review, but I wanted to say that we absolutely enjoyed our stay in this home last summer. The location is perfect and the home had everything we needed. The home is nicely decorated and everything was clean. We were able to easily get to the beach and ride our bikes. The subdivision is beautiful and quiet. The best features of the home are the wraparound back porch and the master bathroom (very large). The infinity pool was one of our favorite spots and a quick walk or bike ride from the house, in fact we spent more time there than at the beach. The owner was absolutely fabulous and always very responsive to our calls and questions. We would vacation in this home again this year if was not already booked up.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Cypress Dunes five times, but this was our first stay at this home. We absolutely love the Cypress Dunes property and could not have been happier with the home we stayed in this March. The layout was perfect for our family and had everything we needed. The beaches were beautiful, as usual, and the pool temperature was perfect. We swam every day and every night. The best part about this rental, however, was the attentiveness of the owners. They answered every question we had in a timely manner and truly cared that we had a great experience. We would not hesitate to come back to this home and are already looking forward to a vacation next spring! The Fasbender Family
