About Dune Real Estate Company

My wife and I first visited from Colorado in 2000, bought the SS Minnow in 2002. We fell in love with the area and moved down full time in 2003, started a real estate sales company (The Beach Group) and to this day say it is the best decision that we ever made.

Dune Real Estate Company purchased this house in 2002

Why Dune Real Estate Company chose Beaches of South Walton

Why the Owner Chose Gulfview Heights:

Our favorite location on Scenic 30-A. Quiet street, very close to the beach, gulf views, private pool, close to everything that 30-A has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:

Private pool, wooded lot, gulf views, close to bike path and beach access with restrooms, parking, lifeguards and showers. Close to Gulf Place, Destin and Seaside.

What makes this house unique

S.S. Minnow will NOT leave you stranded on a desert isle! Instead, enjoy the ambiance of a Santa Rosa Beach home with Gulf views and private pool.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six thoroughly enjoyed our mid-August stay at the S.S. Minnow. We arrived very late, and the whole house was lit up and welcoming, just waiting for us! The house was clean, the pool was wonderful, and it's just a short walk (or drive) to the beach. Going in mid-August gave us huge sections of private beach in the mornings. Good restaurants (Goatfeathers, Pecan Jack's, Don Pedro's) and shopping are nearby in this small, non-commercialized beach town. And if you're game for a little drive, you can do the commercial stuff at Destin or Panama City Beach, or enjoy the other small beach towns in between. It was a great, relaxing vacation.

Our family loves staying at SS Minnow!

  • 5 of 5

The house is always clean and in great condition. Property management team texts us to make sure we have everything we need. The kids love the pool and it is just a short walk to the beach. We are already looking forward to next year's trip!

Great house and location was perfect.

  • 4 of 5

House was perfect for the 5 of us. Location to beach was ideal and having our own pool to cool off in was terrific.

The only negative we found was that all three grills were not usable. The grates on all were filthy and looked as though they hadn't been cleaned in quite some time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments! We wanted you to know your opinion is very important to us. In fact we have replaced the grill at the property and have it cleaned after every guest. We continue to strive to make every guest experience worth a five star rating. Had you notified us of your disappointment we would have made the necessary improvements. We hope you'll come back to see us again.

Would rent this house again

  • 4 of 5

Was great to have an app to easily and at all times access any information concerning this rental home. The house was just as expected and we were very comfortable and at home there. The pool is great and it's a perfect 5 minute walk from the beach. The only issue we had was that we left our suitcases in the living room and left to have breakfast before we came back to grab our stuff and checkout. Unfortunately, the cleaning person was already there. We had not checked out on the app as indicated so I guess since she saw no car in the driveway, she came on in. Then of course she saw all our bags so then she knew we were not gone. She and a child were there and she indicated profusely that she had not touched our stuff. Just a little unsettling to me. She quickly disappeared upstairs. It was still an hour until the official checkout time. We promptly grabbed our stuff and left. Then we checked out on the mobile app. But other than that, it is a great place to stay.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the SS Minnow for two years in a row for our summer vacation. We absolutely love this place and it's perfect for our family of five. I'm sure we will continue to rent every year, if available. The house is always spotless, as is the pool. The house is beautiful and laid out well. It's close to so many great places to eat and about a one minute walk to a great ice cream stand. Super quick to walk to the beach, which is not overly crowded since there aren't any huge complexes around here. We couldn't be more pleased. Thanks again!

Clean and perfect for a family! Great area to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the S.S. Minnow with our family including my 11 month old son, and 3 other friends. The house is very clean and within walking distance to the beach and a couple local restaurants. The pool was private and very nice as well. Nada with Dune Realty was my primary contact and she was very responsive and friendly. Check in and check out were very smooth processes. The Santa Rosa Beach area is slower paced and quieter than some of the surrounding areas but not far away from anywhere we wanted to go which we loved! I would definitely recommend this home and stay again!
