WE are located almost directly in between these airport which are about 35 minutes to the east and 35 minutes to the west of our home.... I know some of you can not stay 6 nights.. please email me for clarification.

If you are looking for a quite vacation home, but want easy access to the beach, restaurants, shops and outdoor activities, then our Cypress Ritzz should be your choice.

• Infinity pool is located right across the street from our home

• Tennis courts in the gated neighborhood for guests to enjoy

• Ample parking for more than one vehicle

• Additional Master on 1st level with private bath

• We are NOT pet friendly, and we DO NOT allow smoking therefore, those with allergies will enjoy our home immensely.

This home is great for a family or two small families, but please keep in mind we have a lot of stairs, and those with small children, or elderly family members, this might not be your choice.

Also keep in mind, we understand people love their pets, but we made a decision that we will NOT be pet friendly due to allergies, and many issues that pets entail…….so please don’t even ask, the answer will always be no and a fine imposed if you bring them and you will be asked to leave with no refund.

About Bert

I am a REaltor and have been for over 25 years....

Bert purchased this house in 2007

Why Bert chose Dune Allen Beach

I work and live at the beach and found some great buys, and now allow guests to enjoy the home here in Cypress Dunes that has one of the best pools on 30A

What makes this house unique

The infinity pool........which is fabulous.........the wildlife that you hear, especially in the evening sitting out on the porch, and the view of the gulf of mexico with it's clear blue water.

Pool was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

It was a little bit of a challenge to get to the beach, because you have to drive or ride their shuttle, but the location otherwise was great. The house is so close to the wonderful pool. Will be back

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were not certain of booking because the neighborhood does not have immediate beach access, but we loved the looks of house on line, and the fact that community had tennis courts and a pool. We were so happy we made the decision to book. House did not disappoint us, and my husband and I felt it so safe for our kids to ride bikes. The tennis courts were great and the pool is right across the street. We made it to the beach a couple of times which was an easy ride. The owner was friendly and helpful . We plan to come back. Oh yes, it had very easy access to shopping and restaurants

We recently stayed at Cypress Ritzz for a girl's getaway and it was perfect! We enjoyed everything about the home and the community. It was quiet and peaceful. The home was spectacular and comfortable and the pool was amazing! Bert was very easy to work with. Hope to come again soon!

The Cypress Ritz is a lovely house with a lot going for it. Its high ceilings, clean hardwood floors, high quality appliances, and stylish decor make a very fine impression. The great views from the third floor balcony and the proximity to the incredible pool made for some wonderful memories for my family. In some of its overlooked details, however, it falls well short of its potential. Minor details during our stay included several blown lightbulbs not replaced, a lack of toilet paper stock, and small kitchen appliances which were uncleaned and barely functioning. When wanting to soak my travel-weary bones in the upstairs jetted tub, I was saddened to find the motor functioning (apparently from its noise) but no bubbles ever came out of the blowers.

The most painful part of our stay was the ridiculous master bed. The grand four poster king-sized bed with mesh dressing was paired with the most uncomfortable, unsupportive, and noisiest mattress my wife and I have ever encountered! Our bodies sank in and tilted toward the headboard, while every move either of us made shook the bed and made a loud, grating noise throughout the night; every move. Upon our arrival it was dressed with funky faded safari print sheets with a high synthetic content and negative thread count. We sought out replacement bedding, but found that the only cotton set of sheets in the entire Ritz were the replacements for the first floor full bed! We made do as best we could laying this over our king size, but needless to say this was not a great way to heal our aching backs after a long drive to the coast.

It would have been nice if the owner had called to see how we had settled in and whether she could help make our stay any nicer or to relay these items in person, but she did not. Perhaps by now she has addressed some of these shortcomings, but I think doing so could really help improve the guests experience in the future.

Owner's Response: Talk about saddened, I was more than that when this review came to me. I have been renting my properties through for several years and have had nothing but good and positive comments…which can be read on this page and several other reviews on my other properties. I have had many, many return guests and give them a return guest discount. Whenever any of my guests have had any kind of a problem, large or small, they have given me a quick call and I have immediately jumped on those issues. I, along with other owners, leave enough supplies to get the guests through a couple of nights until they get to the store and purchase what they need. Our homes are not run like a hotel ...if guests want my properties fully stocked for their entire stay, they can always give me a list and I will purchase for them and add to their bill. I also keep at least an additional set of sheets and towels in the closet unless someone has taken them...which unfortunately happens. Beds are always a personal issue, I have had many guests tell me that my King bed at the cypress ritzz was the most comfortable bed they have ever slept in because it has that down pillow filling. Once again, I am always happy to help my guests if there are any issues, however, being blindsided AFTER the fact without first discussing your concerns to the owner is hardly fair. bert summerville I

The Cochran Plan B

  • 5 of 5


We had some miscommunication about our reservation and Bert did summersaults to take care of us. We ended up in the PRIMO PROPERTY and absolutely LOVED IT. It was so relaxing, serene and lovely. We would've loved some beach access, but, we were so happy to be in such a beautiful place. The pool/hot tub was a huge hit as well. We hope to go back next year!

Thanks so much Bert!!!
