About the property

House, 3bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 2200 sq. ft, partial gulf views

Welcome to “Tiramisù”, our beautiful home in Cypress Dunes on 30A of the Emerald Coast. In Italian, “Tiramisù” is a tasty desert made according to our family recipe that literally means “Pick Me Up”. We are certain that a stay in our home will recharge your batteries and energize you. If you cannot relax and have fun here, it is not possible at all.

Cypress Dunes is a safe 44 acre gated community situated on the west side of scenic Hwy 30A, and is known for its spectacular infinity edge pool overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and the Topsail Hill State Preserve. Topsail Hill is right in our backyard, and it offers a wide variety of natural resources including 3.2 miles of secluded, white sand beaches with majestic dunes over 25 feet tall. Three rare coastal dune lakes provide excellent freshwater fishing.

We are steps away from the clubhouse that includes a fitness center/gym, outdoor fireplace, dining room, heated spa, and infinity pool with Gulf of Mexico views. If tennis is your game, we have two tennis courts.

Our three-bedroom/3.5 bathroom floor plan is very open and inviting with high-end furnishings such as hardwood floors, granite counter tops throughout and attention to the smallest details. Over 65 windows, recessed lighting, and high ceilings add to the spacious feeling of the home. The main living area on the second floor has a kitchen open to the spacious living and dining area with fireplace and two covered porches. The bright kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and custom cabinetry. The master suite, just down from the main gathering area offers peak Gulf views, high ceilings, and transom windows. Double vanities, separate shower, and soaking tub complete the master suite. On the ground floor are a second master bedroom with King and a third bedroom with two twins each with a separate bath and spacious closets.

Cypress Dunes has no direct access to the beach. Seven public beaches are nearby, including Stallworth or Topsail Beaches within one mile. Free 30A Shuttle available to public beach access. Auto, biking and walking access through Topsail with provided permit.

Cypress Dunes is convenient to many unique 30A restaurants and shops, Gulf Place, Blue Mountain, Grayton Beach, Seaside, and Grand Boulevard at Sandestin (3 miles), Silver Sands Outlet (5 miles) and Destin Commons (10 miles).

About Thomas and Irene Cordi

We are an Italian couple that fell in love with Florida's "Costa Smeralda" (Emerald Coast). This is our home, not just a vacation rental. Since we travel a great deal, we see no reason not to share our slice of paradise with you. Irene is a Professor of Italian Literature at FSU, and Tom is recently retired from FSU. Tom is an environmentalist who has worked for the past 10 years to preserve our natural resources and create a sustainable future for all our children.

Why Thomas and Irene Cordi chose Dune Allen Beach

If you love the simplicity of nature, wildlife, and sugar white dunes and beaches, you will love our home where Topsail Hill State Preserve is right in our backyard and it offers a wide variety of natural resources including 3.2 miles of secluded, white sand beaches with majestic dunes over 25 feet tall. Three rare coastal dune lakes provide excellent freshwater fishing. Our resort facilities are equal to the very best luxury hotels and properties. Our home is steps away from the infinity pool with gorgeous gulf views, fitness club, spa, and other amenities. If tennis is your game, we have two tennis courts. Acres of trails across a beautiful Cypress grove.

What makes this house unique

Children can safely play in the parks of our gated community. On the westside of 30A, unlike Seaside and Rosemary Beach, traffic is not a problem. Yet you are only minutes away from the best restaurants, shopping, and all other activities of 30A and Sandestin. A free Sunshine Shuttle Service will pick you up and take you to all stops on 30A from Cypress Dunes to Rosemary Beach.

Gorgeous and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in July and had a wonderful time. Your home is beautiful and very clean and maintained. The infinity pool was awesome and never crowded. The public beach is a short 4-5 minute drive. The house had everything we needed and then some. Tom was very easy to work with. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. This a super nice and clean home in a very relaxing setting. We look forward to returning.
