Dune Vista -

Fall in love with this spectacular 5 bedroom 4.5 bath private beach home. With Over 5,600 square feet of luxurious design and finishings, this home is sure to please! Nestled on the outskirts of Destin (Dune Allen Beach) This high end rental is close to countless locations for shopping and dining. You are within walking distance to Stinky’s Fish Camp which offers some of the best Seafood South Walton has to offer. Dune Allen Beach is wonderful because you have the seclusion of being on Scenic Hwy. 30A, but you’re only a few miles from Sandestin. Here you will find a Publix supermarket, Silver Sands outlets, and the Village Of Baytowne Wharf.

Often referred to as “the town that began it all”, Santa Rosa Beach is the first established community in South Walton. Today, many of the communities that make up this majestic collection of beachfront developments are technically in Santa Rosa Beach. The most notable is Gulf Place home to restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. Other attractions include Eden State Garden Park and the Santa Rosa Beach Golf Club. Guests seeking to spend their vacation in Santa Rosa Beach can opt for studio style condos at Gulf Place, large vacation homes with private pools near the beach or beachfront custom homes or townhomes.

About Logan

For over thirty years Ocean Reef has distinguished itself as the leading vacation rental property management company on the Emerald Coast. Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach. Steeped in a tradition of hospitality and exemplary service, we pride ourselves on providing an unmatched vacation experience.

Why Logan chose Beaches of South Walton

The gateway to 30A, Dune Allen Beach is the most western community positioned along the famed Scenic Drive. With an unpretentious coastal lifestyle, visitors of Dune Allen will enjoy spending time outdoors, on and off the beach. Of course Dune Allen Beach offers the same pristine white sand found elsewhere in Northwest Florida, but this quaint community also hosts a state park, nature trails, and several rare coastal dune lakes. Dune Allen’s convenient location puts the excitement of Destin and nearby South Walton only moments away.

The house is absolutely unbelievable! The pictures of the house just don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

The floor plan was absolutely perfect for our entire family that included 4 separate families with 13 people! Prepare yourself for stairs, we definitely got a leg workout lol, however the tri-level house allowed everyone their own space with several common areas so you never felt crowded. The top balcony off the kitchen and living area have a breathtaking view of the ocean where we saw dolphins almost every morning. There is also a balcony on the second level that overlooks the ocean. The pool is clean, warm and has lounge chairs and a table to provide the perfect setting to cook out with the grill provided! Although this house sits right behind a house on the beach it is a super convenient walk from the garage door to the sand. Dune Allen Beach was the perfect choice of beach and we will never go anywhere else! It was never crowded and we always had a perfect spot for our chairs. Ocean Reef provides you with the basics for your first night stay such as a roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, a packet of dishwasher soap, and mini bottles of shampoo and soap. We found out that there were some necessities needed on our Walmart list so I thought I would share. Definitely add laundry detergent, dish soap, dishwasher soap, scrub brush, baggies, trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, paper plates, bleach wipes, salt and pepper, Pam or cooking oil, solo cups. There is a Walmart less than 3 miles away but the absolute BEST advice I can offer is make a menu for the week and do a pickup order at the Walmart in destin!!! It's a 30 minute drive but will save you hours of grocery shopping for everything you need. Order it online, pick a pickup date and time, pull up and they load it, seriously a life saver. Oh and people leave beach items by the trash cans that they purchased and didn't want to cart back home so we scored multiple boogie boards, water guns, sand toys, boat raft and skim boards without having to purchase and then left them for the next family which is a great way to pay it forward!!! Overall you won't be disappointed if you book this house!

¡The Vista was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Dune Vista was a beautiful home! It was exactly what my family was wanting for our vacation. Everyone had ample space to live and play comfortably. The views were great, the beach was awesome, the pool was perfect, and it was so close to the beach! We just loved it. I am definitely bringing my family back to this location.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Our large family (14) really enjoyed our visit to Dune Vista. The house is beautifully decorated and was plenty large enough for our family. The balcony on the top floor is a great place to sit and visit with a cold drink and watch the twilight sneak in. The 3rd floor has great space for the family to all gather to eat or play games. We enjoyed playing "phaze 10" with our grand kids around the dining table. . We did eat in for the majority of our meals. The kitchen was well equipped and had all the "gadgets" . We also made use of the gas grill on the side balcony. I was pleased that the gas grill was located in area that made it easy to keep children away while grilling. The pool was another favorite. The pool is located in the shade in the afternoons which makes it perfect after a morning on the beach. Our family included 4 teenage girls who really enjoyed sharing the 1st floor living space. They had privacy, but were not isolated. The house has 2 master suites which was also a plus. It was a wonderful week full of great memories at a beautiful home located on a perfect beach.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in about 10 different houses on the gulf coast over the years and this one is the best by far. Our group of 14 were very comfortable during our week long vacation. The furnishings are some of the best I've seen and the main living area and kitchen being on the 3rd floor (as compared to the 1st floor in most other houses) offered spectacular views of both the ocean as well as the rare coastal lake across the street and really sets this house apart from the others. The kitchen was fully stocked with more than enough for our large group of both adults and children. The Rinnai hot water heaters are a nice touch with a large group since you never run out of hot water. Being so close to the ocean with the beach access right outside the door is a big plus. Will definitely be back to this gorgeous house!

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

This house was great. Plenty of room for 3 family with huge bedrooms. The views were amazing from the 2nd and 3rd floor. Dune Vista was stocked with all the essentials plus extras. Never ran out of anything. Will be back for sure!

Nice but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

The location of this house is awesome. Don't get me wrong the house was a great place to stay but IT NEEDS MUCH MAINTENANCE! Overall the house is dirty. Baseboards, windows, light fixtures, laundry room, air vents are all cakes with dirt. Ceiling is falling in master bathroom on 2nd floor. The dryer exhaust hose and outside bent are cakes with lint, a big time fire hazard. Carpets need cleaning. Even the tile in 2nd floor bathroom is white where people walk and black with cakes on dirt where they don't walk. The corners of the baseboards are cakes with dirt. There is no stick vac to do daily sand extraction from the floors. The drains on the 3 a/c units that drain the water condensation from the inside blowers were clogged causing the units to shutdown. We had to clean them out. Again we had a great time but this house needs some major MAINTENANCE and cleaning. There are few amentities other than its located on the beach. The owner needs to step in here. Not having access to the elevator is a BIG negative for me. I understand how people would abuse this feature and the cost to fix it would be a reason to keep it turned off.....but there is no $$ being spent on the house upkeep
