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 (wall oven, convection microwave, Bosch dishwasher, digital glass surface cooktop, large fridge with bottom freezer). Panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from every room on the first floor. You are in the front row, nothing in front of you but the beach.
Complimentary chair and umbrella beach service included. Watch pelicans diving for fish while you lounge on the balcony as dolphins swim by. You have both covered and uncovered beach seating. The entire beach-facing side of the home is glass allowing for easy monitoring of children's activities.

The home has 4 bedrooms, one down and three on the second level.
The main floor bedroom has a private bath room with walk-in shower.
The other 3 bedrooms are on the second floor.
The master suite is 30 X 15 with all glass facing the beach. It's bathroom has a deep soaking tub and a separate walk-in shower. The bed is a King.
The other bedroom is 20 X 15 with a King bed and a queen sofa sleeper. This room has a kitchen sink, full fridge and separate exterior entrance.
The 3rd upstairs bedroom has a twin trundle and queen sofa sleeper. HDMI ports are built into the wall so you can bring your game console and use it with the flat screen smart TV.

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.

                  Manager info

                  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.
