Welcome to After Dune Delight!

After Dune Delight is an exquisite coastal retreat one block from the sugar white sands and beautiful waters of South Walton. This charming three-story abode consists of five bedrooms, five bathrooms, features its very own elevator, and is located in the prestigious gated community of Destiny by the Sea.

Once inside you will find an King Suite as well as an bunk room with twin-over-twin bunk beds and one queen-sized bed. A laundry station is conveniently located in the hallway between the bedrooms and the living area. Take full advantage of the elevator by using it to carry luggage and groceries to the main living area on the second floor. No one should have to work while on vacation, after all! There is also a garage on this level with plenty of storage for beach supplies.

Up to the second level, you cannot help but notice the gourmet kitchen which is fully equipped with upscale stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, stone backsplash, and a six-burner gas stove. See how the living area glows as it is bathed in sunlight that pours from the large windows. The living area features comfortable furnishings, hand-scraped engineered wood flooring, a fireplace, and a wet bar. Also included on this level is a lovely King Suite and an elegant bath with intricate tile work.

The expansive third floor features the master King Suite with master bath that features a large jacuzzi tub and separate walk-in shower. Also on the third floor is a Queen Suite that includes a toddler bed — perfect for those with a little one!

After Dune Delight is located within close proximity to all of the best shopping, dining and activities Destin has to offer! Private deeded beach access, community pool, and onsite security are afforded to guests.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we expected. The pictures were accurate. We had 3 families totaling 13 people and everyone had a comfortable bed to sleep. The gated neighborhood with paved brick streets is absolutely stunning with huge mansions. Right next to a beautiful private beach. I would definitely stay here or in a house located in Destiny By The Sea again.

Great value in one of Destin's most exclusive beach communities!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Destiny by the Sea is a high end, gated beachfront community chocked full of multi-million dollar mansions. There is a community pool and a dedicated beach service that provides umbrella service, both very nice features.

The house itself is one of the smaller properties there, doesn't have a large outdoor balcony, a dedicated pool, or a beach view... but, was priced accordingly. We were travelling with 6 children, ages 5-8, and anticipated spending the vast majority of our time on the beach, so we appreciated being able to find a house in Destiny for such a good value.

The house is well maintained... everything was clean, in good condition, there were plenty of towels, linens, and basic home supplies. It has a nice garage with room for 1 car and a place to keep beach toys at night. The kitchen is well equipped, but has only 1 refrigerator. It would be nice if they would consider adding a second fridge in the garage. The house also has a nice, built in sound system and VERY fast internet. This was a big plus in being able to stream Apple TVs and Firesticks for the kids.

There is a BBQ grill with plenty of provided propane, but it is located in a small back-alley type area in the rear of the house... not great for hanging out, but gets the job done.

The only real problem we had, and the only reason I am going with a 4 star instead of a 5, was with the on-site security service. The community has HOA rules that are very strictly enforced, like no hanging towels from your balcony, no drinks in or around the community pool (including water), and very strict parking regulations.

We were disturbed at 10PM on our first night by a security guard that demanded we move one of our vehicles because it was parked at an "unacceptable angle" and was partially blocking a sidewalk. We'd all had a few glasses of wine by then and asked if he would allow us to move the vehicle first thing in the morning (we had to move it several blocks away). He refused and threatened us with a $700 fine and with immediately towing the vehicle. It was a shocking and very poorly handled experience.

The other security guards were very nice, although diligent in executing their duties, so we considered the confrontation with this one guard to maybe be an isolated and unusual event, but nonetheless, it affected our trip.

BOTTOM LINE: Well maintained property in a luxury beach community. Very strict HOA regs. Great beach service. Great overall value.
