DUNE FINE is a delightful, and extremely popular, raised beach cottage in the Dune Allen Beach area of 30-A. Many know well why the property has earned its name and reputation in Santa Rosa Beach. If not...here's the skinny: Once you've checked in, and kicked back, rest assured you'll be Doin' Fine as well!

Located at the western end of 30-A (closer to Destin than Panama City Beach), but still just minutes from any activity or destination you wish to explore, DUNE FINE is a 3/2 home that offers spacious accommodations for up to six, but manages to capture a feeling of beachy coziness and casual comfort in its first floor, open plan living/kitchen area. The L/R section of the house blends well into the 'galley kitchen' and allows all parties to watch TV, converse, cook, and perhaps, sometime around sunset, share a 'frozen concoction' that your inevitable blender will be happy to render. Bedrooms and baths are somewhat more generous in size than those of other beach homes and, for six people, that's a real plus. A shaded, upstairs balcony with a comfy hammock is positioned beautifully to take advantage of delicious gulf breezes...Well behaved and monitored children are most welcome.

As many of you know there are a variety of beaches on 30-A. Some with lifeguards and chairs/umbrellas set ups, some without, some offering good food just a few strides away, etc...currently, the closest access to the gulf is an easy eight to ten-minute stroll away. One of our best restaurants - Stinky's Fish Camp is a five-minute walk. If you'd like to take coolers, fishing gear and the like, I suggest tossing it all in the car and making the less-than-60-second drive. Many beach spots offer restrooms and outside showers (no need to go back home covered in that sugar white sand).

Flea free, vaccinated, well-trained dogs are welcome (they'll love being able to romp in the large, fenced backyard). You know your dog. If prone to separation anxiety, we ask that you crate your dog when you are not at the house.

PLEASE NOTE: * DUNE FINE IS AVAILABLE ON A 'WEEKLY ONLY' BASIS. WE GENERALLY DO SATURDAY TO SATURDAY RENTALS. BUT CHECK WITH US FOR EXCEPTIONS.

* HOLIDAY RATES ARE NOT INFLATED HERE!

MULTIPLE WINTER MONTHLY RATES MAY QUALIFY FOR DISCOUNT. SORRY, MARCH IS NOT INCLUDED.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. All the rooms are spacious . The den area is perfect for sitting and relaxing kitchen is well stocked with all you could need for cooking. Our favorite was sitting on the from porch at night and relaxing after a long day on the beach. The back yard is wonderful for you pups! Plenty of room to run and play. We hope to come back soon! Owner is easy to work with and helpful .

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Dune Fine was the perfect place for our summer vacation. The house has a great layout with spacious bedrooms, and the beach access was only a 2 minutes drive. A huge backyard which for us was wonderful because we had our 2 dogs. I would definitely recommend if you are staying in the area.

Surpass Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I had a very nice conversation with Traci before renting her home to ensure it was suited to our needs. We were delighted when we arrived and found that everything was spotless and beautifully decorated. The backyard was larger then expected which was perfect for our dog. Some other bonuses were comfortable beds and living room furniture, a nice selection of kitchen utensils, a large new washer and dryer and new barbecue grill. This house is in a quiet area close to the beach and was great for walking our dog. This is a great house to make lasting memories!

Could not have been a more perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house and location was perfect.

The beach truly is a 3 minute...maybe...drive to the public parking right in front of the beach. There was ALWAYS plenty of parking no matter what time we drove over. (we are lazy hence us driving every time). The beach is perfect. It's beautiful. Clean. Not crowded. Has a nice bath house and hose/shower to rinse off with.

The house itself is great. The pictures do not do it justice. It's bigger and brighter. The bedrooms are beautiful and comfortable and the entire house is decorated beautifully. If you have dogs, they will love it too. Any pet lover will love it due to the books/artwork throughout the house. We spent a lot of time on the front porch. The fenced in yard is awesome!!!

There are restaurants in walking distance. A wonderful place to walk in the mornings for exercise....and a perfect coffee stop!

Its great....we will be back for sure!!!!!
