Cypress Dunes is a gated village of luxury beach cottages located at the beginning of scenic 30-A next to SanDestin. This friendly community is nestled between Topsail State Park/Nature Preserve and the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

Topsail Hill Preserve State Park is known as the most pristine piece of coastal property in the state of Florida. The park is made of more than three miles of white-sand beaches, massive sand dunes (including the Topsail Hill dune, which towers 25 feet above sea level), lakes and indigenous flora and fauna. Visitors are invited to enjoy swimming, bicycling, roller blading, fishing, hiking, picnicking and more.

You will love this beach cottage for the natural serenity outside as well as the comfortable and relaxing interior. This cottage will impress with its wood floors, high ceilings, elegant furnishings, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen. If you are looking for comfort, serenity and relaxation, then this cottage awaits you! Step onto a spacious front porch and enjoy the beauty and simplicity of the outdoors.

Inside, you will delight in the inviting living area that is perfect for being with family and friends. The open living room is complete with comfortable, oversized seating and large flat screen HD TV. A fully equipped kitchen is open to the dining room that seats 8. Free WiFi internet access and free U.S. long distance calling on house phone.

The first floor has two bed rooms, both with queen beds, flat-screen cable TVs, DVD players and private baths. Each bedroom opens out to the private screened in porch, perfect for morning coffee or cocktails at dusk.

Cypress Dunes and its surroundings are ideal to explore on a bike. Miles of paved trails at the beaches of South Walton are ideal for biking during your visit to Cypress Dunes. Both beginner and advanced cyclists enjoy the 18.6-mile scenic 30-A bike trail that winds through the area’s coastal dune lakes and villages. You can rent a bike at several of the nearby bike shops in the area. You can call them and they will deliver the bikes to the cottage.

Very nice, comfortable location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here. The house was nicely laid out and very comfortable. Enjoyed the location, close to the event we were attending but not right on top of it. Easy to get to other areas as well.

Enjoyed our time and would definitely use this property again. Mr Glantz was a very accommodating and helpful host.

Quiet Get-away

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of tourism, this is a great place. Very spacious home, but also very cozy. Great restaurants and food. Friendly people. Beach nearby. Awesome view of the ocean from the pool. Situated between 2 major tourist cities, so there's plenty to do within a short distance should you choose to indulge. We enjoyed a very successful deep sea fishing trip out of Destin.

A luxurious home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise home ! It truly exceeded our expectations. Before you book any other residence in Cypress Dunes contact Andy first. We had the opportunity to meet him first hand, and he was as nice as the property. He made us feel welcome & became a part of of vacation experience! We also rented bikes from 30 A bike rental (the best) and beach chairs/umbrella from Burkes beach rentals (great & reasonable). A wonderful stay, our second visit to this community & we will be back!! You've tried the rest... now call the BEST !! Andy Glantz

Awesome vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our family vacation on 30A! Staying in the Gulf Beach Paradise home was perfect for our entire family! It was a beautiful home and we had plenty of room! It was so nice that every bedroom had it's own bathroom! It was so peaceful in the neighborhood. It was a great place to relax after a day on the beach. The pool is huge and beautiful! You have a great view of the Gulf from the pool. I enjoy swimming laps and the pool was a perfect size to get a good workout. My husband and son really enjoyed the tennis courts. They are really nice courts and very close to the house! The beds are very comfortable. The home is beautifully decorated. Andy is awesome to work with! He thinks of everything and provides you with all the information you need to make sure you have a wonderful vacation! We will definitely stay here again! Great location---enjoyed biking to the beach or driving a short distance.

This place is absolute paradise! The house is gorgeous, spacious, the area is extremely safe, and the pool is spectacular! The beaches and restaurants are both just around the corner and never crowded! I'll never stay in Destin or Panama City again! This place feels like my home away from home!
