Lounge on a chaise, read a book, or soak in the sun. Or take a stroll through the neighborhood. You will often find someone who is eager to visit.

ReviewsWrite a review
This was our first trip to Santa Rosa Beach, and we came down for a close friend's wedding. There were only two couples that stayed, though the house had plenty of space for more people. With a third floor loft with two sets of bunks and plenty of space for the extra twin, it'd be a great place for three families to stay (kids can sleep in the loft)! We saw lots of rentals as many other guests were staying in the area, both in other houses within this subdivision, as well as in condos up the road. I think our place was the best for several reasons: 1) we had a view of the water from the living room and back deck, 2) there were 4 decks - this allowed us to be together when we wanted to, but also to have time apart quite easily, 3) cart, mat, umbrella, 2 chairs, and beach toys (other places provided only chairs and maybe some beach toys). The community pool was a nice, with a clean bathroom and a shaded area with picnic table to escape the sun. The pool was a bit cold, but it was still Spring. The Gulf was a short walk away (and we learned of a shortcut that cut off about a 1/2 block of the walk) with decent public bathrooms. The house was clean and well-maintained, and Brenda answered all my questions. She also emailed us with tons of suggestions on places to eat and shop. We exchanged a couple of emails while there, and she was always very quick to respond. I would absolutely go back and stay here again. The only thing that we didn't realize (and this was true of all houses, not just this one) is that beach towels were not included, nor was there a cooler for taking drinks to the beach. However, there is a Walmart just a few minutes up the road if you need to purchase one (we made do without), and we made a make shift cooler to get us through the day (which the provided cart made easy to bring to the beach!)

Owner response: Deanna, thank you for the kind remarks regarding Island Dunes. We are happy the home worked for your party and you were able to enjoy the multiple decks and views of the Gulf. Also pleased you discovered the short cut to the beach and found the cart to be helpful in carrying items. I had not thought about providing a cooler for our guests, but that is a great idea that I will work on when at the house next! Since the home is new to the market, we are still working to make our guests' experiences good ones. And we certainly appreciate your taking the time to write a review; our first one!! Hope to see you back in the future!
