Walton Dunes townhome description
'Folley', on the beach,is the perfect place to escape,and unwind while looking out over the beautiful Gulf of Mexico from one of the two decks. Unique in townhouses is the panoramic gulf view from every room in the townhouse.
We are off of the beaten path, but a bike and or a walk to 30-A only takes minutes. This area of the Florida Panhandle is known as the Emerald Coast due to the clear to turquoise water and the sugar white sand beaches. In this particular townhouse you look out, not only just over the beautiful water, but also over the wildlife in the park that joins the property. On the other end of the complex is Deer Lake state park. There are no high rise apartments to block the view from any window.
All along 30-A are many delightful restaurants. Seaside resort area is 3 miles away for unique shoping and Destin, Fort Walton, or Panama City provide additioinal shopping, movies, or eating out. There is a wonderful outlet mall in Destin just minutes away . Ride your bike to Seaside, or Grayton Beach for the afternoon or morning. Just a short distance in the other direction are Alys,and Rosemary Beach and an abundance of more restaurants.
The new international airport is just 45 minutes away.The airports of Destine and Fort Walton are just the other way to the west..
The Town House Association does not allow the owners to provide umbrellas or chairs. However, these are readily available along with bikes with a telephone call to any one of several places. There is an outdoor just at the end of the complex. There is NO GRILLING at the individual units.
I do provide internet and HD as well as wi-fy. There is the TV/DVD in the living room and an additional TV in the master bedroom. There is free telephone dialing.
While this unit really accomodates adults very well, due to its location it is also ideal for children, Because there is NO traffic,. walk out of the door of the covered carport right out to the sugar sand. Do bring lots of sun screen.
When day is done, relax on one of the two decks with something cool in hand and watch the sun go down over the crystal water. One problem, it is so beautiful, no one wants to go in, even though you still see the gulf from the kitchen, it's not the same as relaxing on the deck with the gentle wind rustling through the hair.
The kitchen is well suplied with good utensils and there are plenty of linens. The master bedroom has a comfortable queen bed while the guest room has twin beds.. There is plenty of closet space upstairs, along with the two full baths. Down stairs is the half bath which is conviently located just off of the living and dinning and kitchen.
Please book early to insure the perfect time. I have been amazed at how quickly the follybooks in the spring and summer. So early is best.
The fall and spring, are the most beautiful time of year as it is so cool and the water and sand are at their very best.
I do have monthly rates in the winter. The winter months are from November 1 to March 3.

ReviewsWrite a review
This condo was great for our family of four. Plenty of room, clean and perfect location and view! The beds were very comfortable and the water pressure was fantastic! The views off the back balconies were amazing! Easy beach access as well! Would definitely stay here again and we are pretty picky so that is saying alot! The owner was very accessible and accommodating. There is a beach access on this end for others to use, but the beach was not crazy busy like in Sandestin or Destin. We had plenty of room to put our chairs and umbrellas out without being crammed in like sardines. The beach was very laid back and not a crazy spring break atmosphere. There are quite alot of chairs/people at the Dunes of Seagrove, but most of that busyness stayed down there. Make sure to look at the beach cam at Walton Dunes to see your live beach view. This helped us alot in making our decision to come to this condo.

About the owner: I am the owner and I do all of my own renting and managing as that way I get to know those of you that return year after year. There are quite a few of you that have been coming for many years.
Why the Owner Chose Walton Dunes:
When Walt and I bought this property, he said if I'm at the beach I want to be on the beach, and that I am. If I were any closer I would be in the water.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The Folly is very quiet because it is down on a cul de sac so there is no through traffic.. Since I am the end unit I see the gulf and the sand from every room in the house except the bathrooms. The guest bedroom on the back also has a beautiful view to wake up to as there are large side windows there as well as the master bedroom. Since I am the owner manager, I am available on call to help with any and all questions.
