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.

Property, neighborhood, and location were great for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

House was very nice. Very spacious. Had everything we needed for our stay. The neighborhood was very peaceful and quiet. We loved the fact that it was a gated community and there wasn't a lot of traffic. Neighborhood pool was really nice and the beach access was just down the road. In short, the house met all of our needs and the owners were wonderful to work with. I definitely recommend this rental and would stay here again.

What an AWESOME Location / HOUSE and gated community. The house was spotless-Very clean!Everything is labeled - lights, fan, etc. Also, appreciate the booklet that Andy put together with menu's, etc. This was the second time that we (Larry F. and family) have stayed at Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise - we were here 3 years ago -first time for my father - He Loved it!

The clubhouse is so nice - Great Pool ! The Weather could not have been more perfect the time that we were there.

Andy is such a pleasure to deal with - So hospitable!

We had a WONDERFUL Time !! Looking forward to staying at this same property in the near future.

Great house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to vacation! A quiet community, but still conveniently located to the grocery store, beach, restaurants, movie theatre, and shopping. The workout facility and nearby paved bike trail were great. Andy was helpful and very easy to work with. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to this part of Florida.

Glantz's House by the Sea- a little slice of heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

The Glantz home is spectacular in every meaning of the word. It's beautiful, well equipped, has that "new construction" look and smell! It is centrally located. We rented bikes and biked down to Seaside. The three bedrooms are large and spacious and each bedroom has its own personal bathroom. The master suite is private, upstairs. We took our adult kids with us and they had a blast, but even with younger kids there is tons to do at the beach. We would recommend this house 100%!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Glantz beach house 5 years and I can't say enough great things about it. We have a large family and we always have plenty of room....inside and out. This is our adult childrens favorite place to stay they love how convenient it is to everything. You won't find a better home owner to rent from than Andy. We are very familiar with the area but it changes from year to year and Andy is always so kind to fill us in on the new restaurants and changes at the beach. We actually left some medication that was pretty important and Andy and his sweet wife Michelle were able to bring it back and we met up with them to get it. I can't say enough nice things about the house and the Glantz's.....We will be back next year.
