About Jan

I have been coming to Dune Allen Beach ( from Chicago suburbs) since I was 16 when there were only 3 houses on the beach! Crazy to see how it has changed over the years. I have never missed a summer vacation here and absolutely love it. I got married, had 3 children and we had the opportunity to purchase Palms North 3A. Our children have spent every summer here as now my grandchildren as well. Memories made! I hope everyone that stays in the condo has many wonderful, warm moments and family memories! Cheers!

Jan purchased this Condo in 1999

                                                              Cleans and close to the beach. Well stocked kitchen.

                                                              Short but Sweet!

                                                              Was only able to stay just a few days but oh my gosh it was amazing! Hit a very warm week for this time of year. Water was so clear, very private beach area and was so glad for the private boardwalk that not only took just few steps BUT also had a shower to rinse off.

                                                              Was fun exploring all the restaurants and sports bars in the area many even in walking distance. Saw a gorgeous wedding on the beach too. We are coming back!

                                                              Condo great ... cable not!

                                                              Hi Jan! Everything was fine ... EXCEPT for the cable! May I suggest if you are going to rent during football season, to upgrade your package to include the SEC network. While there were some SEC channels on the line-up they did not work and we were not able to access them. We were trying to watch the Auburn game but could not because of this.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for the review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the condo!

                                                              As for the cable not having a more extensive sports channel it is because of the packaging. To upgrade for a very few short months of football season we would then have to pass along the upgraded cost to ALL of our renters, those even in the summer, which in turn would raise weekly costs. May I suggest a few great sports restaurants that are in walking distance and fun to hang out in while cheering your team on?

                                                              Looking forward to having you again for your Thanksgiving holiday!

                                                              Our family will use 3A again in the future. 3A on 30A. Can't get any more magical than that!

                                                              Jan, the owner, and Dolphin, the rental managers, are very professional yet friendly. We've been holding family reunions at Dune Allen for 60 years. 3A is a wonderful nest to return to at the end of a beach filled day.

                                                              We use to come to Desttin every year, but decided last year to give 30a a try and we fell in love with the area. We stayed at BlueMountain Beach last year but decided to stay closer to 98 this time. And we are so glad that we did, we have found our new favorite condo. We could not have asked for a better location. We were literally 30 seconds away from the beach, you can see the ocean from the reserved parking space. The pictures of this condo do not do it justice, and you will not be disappointed to stay here. The condo is very spacious and open , great beachy decor, very clean and spotless, has everything you could possibly need, comfortable beds, seconds away from the beach, sand toys and beach chairs for you to use, and Dolphin Developers was so easy to work with. The owner (Jan) was very quick to respond to questions and easy to work with. Great prices! The location was perfect. Close enough to Destin but away from the crowds. In Destin the beaches usually have 3-4 rows of people, but at Dune Allen you have no more than one row and you're spaced out. Our favorite place to eat is Donut Hole and we were about 5 minutes away. Best donuts you will ever eat!!! The chocolate angels are to die for. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner food is wonderful and very affordable. We also tried out a place called South of Philly, just off of 30a, about 5 minutes from the condo. We read great reviews and decided to give it a try. Best Philly Cheesesteak you will ever eat! It's like the real deal. And we quickly realized this was a local favorite. We can't wait to come back next year. Thank you Mika family for sharing your beautiful condo with us!

                                                              You were a delight to work with and am so happy you loved the area! See you next year!
