Location

25 Miles

Great Expectations is located on the Gulf of Mexico along the scenic Hwy 30-A where there are some of the world's most pristine beaches. There are many state parks and dune lakes nearby to explore during the day.

Numerous art galleries, quality shops, and excellent restaurants abound. Come explore all the unique architecture that numerous beach communities offer or enjoy some of the local festivals or events throughout the year. There

are so many different activities for all ages!

Across the street from Great Expectations are bike paths, shopping areas and restaurants. Less than a mile from our home is a golf course. Some of our guests have said they didn't get back in their car the whole week!

Golf: There are many golf facilities nearby...some as close as 1/2 mile and others within driving distance

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Wayne and Mary and Mary's brother, Bill, bought Great Expectations in 2001 and in about 3 months we redid the interior and added 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Lots of demolition work! Wayne and Mary live in an artsy little town in Alabama and Bill lives in California. We all love to vacation together at Great Expectations in the off-season....but Bill always says that 'Mr. Project' (Wayne) keeps us busy the whole time working on the house! We do find time to have a little bit of fun.

Why the Owner Chose Dune Allen Beach:
We have been coming to this area since 1981 and have seen lots of changes. We bought this house with the intentions of making changes and adding a pool. We love to do projects and thought this would be a lot of fun, but it was a ton of work!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love having a pool at Great Expectations. We have spent some Christmas vacations there and have been swimming in the heated pool while it was about 35 degrees outside. Lots of fun, but extremely cold when getting out! We also love having Smiling Fish restaurant and Miss Lucille's Gossip Parlor across the street. We love going out bike riding on the bike path also!
