Inlet Beach house description
Booking Code: DMD01 - Mention this code when calling for your reservation
You'll love Diamond Dunes with its romantic Gulf-front location near Rosemary Beach. Beautifully renovated interior with a state of the art kitchen and tremendous views of the Gulf of Mexico. You are in the front row, nothing in front of you but the beach. As of May 2014 there will be a 4th bedroom to sleep an additional 2 people.
Complimentary beach service included. Watch pelicans diving for fish while you lounge on the balcony as dolphins swim by.
Not all beach houses are created equal. Diamond Dunes has no barriers nor boardwalks to navigate on your way to the beach. It sits directly on the sand with nothing between you and the Gulf.
There are 4 bath rooms with 2 bedrooms having a private bath. There are 3 bath tubs and 2 walk in showers as well as an outdoor hot water shower to rinse off the sand after a day on the beach.
The unobstructed sunsets are the most magnificent you can imagine. Lounge on the porch while your children play a few feet away on the beautiful white sand. You can walk east to Carillon Beach or west to Rosemary Beach. There are also several restaurants on HWY 98 in each direction which are walking distance. We welcome comments in our guest book to help us appreciate what you found most special about Diamond Dunes.
The home has an attached garage.

Rosy gold sunsets. Moonlight sparkling on the water. Warm sand under your feet and Gulf waters a few steps away. A beautiful home you will feel comfortable in with private places to read or larger spaces to gather. You will not be disappointed at Diamond Dunes. It is a magical place with a private feel but accessable to as much activity as a guest could desire. I enthusiastically recomment that Diamond Dunes be your next stay in the Destin area. Give it a try.

Instant relaxation! The sand is so soft! We are from Maui, and there are a ton of amazing beaches but none with sand so soft and so white. What a luxury to simply walk down the steps of the front porch and be on this amazing beach. You really get a private feel with zero crowds. The house had everything we needed including free beach chair/umbrella set-ups just like a five star resort! We enjoyed walking to Rosemary Beach for breakfast. There are also several dinner restaurants only 2 blocks away. We can't wait to get back to Diamond Dunes!!!!

Year Purchased: 1993
About: We were born in Chicago, married and transferred to California. Eventually we sought a retirement place on the water with golf nearby. We found and named Diamond Dunes in 1993 on a trip to the Emerald Coast. We never saw sand so white and water so many incredible shades of green. Instantly it became our favorite vacation spot enjoyed by our 4 children and now 8 grandchildren. We are retired and live both in Florida and Nashville. When we saw it for the first time we looked no further because we knew great family vacation memories will be made here. We have remodeled nearly every square inch of the property making it a true home away from home.
Why Inlet Beach:
Diamond Dunes can not be described; it has to be experienced. There is no place like it; pure natural beauty in a heavenly setting. Fun, calm, safe and relaxing with all the activity anyone can want just to the east and west. We all imagine the beauty of a deserted island while not really wanting to be deserted - that's Diamond Dunes. Most of the year the beach in front of our home looks like your private hideaway. We are in a small enclave of 5 homes sharing a common pool for those times when you prefer some fresh water fun. There are no high rise developments within eyesight in either direction. Walton county has a 4 story height restriction so you will never be invaded by huge complexes bringing crowds to the Diamond Dunes beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Waking up in the master bedroom you have the feeling you are on the most luxurious ocean liner because all you see is the vastness of the Gulf of Mexico. Walk out the door to lounge on the large covered front porch facing the Gulf. Walk off the porch and you're on the beach wandering as far as you like collecting shells, seeing pelicans nab their morning catch, or dolphins swimming among schools of fish. There are a several good restaurants just a few blocks away so if you don't want to drive you can take a stroll and eat out too. Private beach service is provided for your stay at no additional cost so you will have unbrellas and chairs near the water.
