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

Convenient location and comfortable accomodations

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect spot for us to spend a lazy week relaxing on the beautiful beach which is just across the street on 30A. The unit was clean, comfortable and appropriately appointed with the necessities. We plan to visit again.

Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this condo end of April, first time here and I gotta say it was great! It was sparkling clean with every thing you might need. Beds comfortable and the place is far bigger than the pictures indicate. Kudos to the owners for having such a beautiful place and allowing others to enjoy it as well. The weather then in spring is lovely with temps hovering around 80 and 72 at night. Beautiful color of water but a bit cool temp wise but took a soak in there anyway. Beach never crowded like some other places we have stayed.

Had dinner one night at Bud and Allys in Seaside but wow it's expensive and that whole area was very crowded. Walked to the Vue right down the street from the condo on the beach for drinks, gorgeous place wish we hadn't eaten beforehand.

I do have one complaint and that is I wish we would have had enough time to stay another week. NEXT SPRING!

BEST location GREAT vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Very very late on this review but we stayed here back in October for a wedding. Jan the owner responded to all of our inquiries at lightning speed and the property management company was so easy and amazing to work with. It was a flawless process with no issues at all! The condo was clean and the decor was totally kitschy which we loved! The access to the beach was the best part! Just a few minutes walk down the path and across the street and you were there! Gulf Place shops and restaurants were very close too! We'd definitely come back and stay here!

Best of Times

  • 5 of 5

Absolute great 3 day weekend. This location has it all. Close to everything, can walk to most places. Gulf Place was fun with wine bar and food and boutique shopping. A short drive to the outlet mall and movies and go-carts, you name it. The ocean was beautiful! Great weather.

Condo well equipped with all of our needs. Best condo unit for pool access too. We were impressed upon entering the unit, it was very, very clean and well decorated in a beach style theme with nice things and very roomy! Pictures don't do it justice. We recommend this place to others, you can't go wrong. Thank you Jan and management team for making this short stay wonderful!

Great location, unit needs updatiing

  • 3 of 5

Once again, we enjoyed our vacation at Palms North. We love the location. It's close to the beach, clean, no crowds, great pool, etc. My only suggestion would be to update the furniture in the unit. The couch is so old that the cushions are shot. Other than that, it's a great place and we plan to come again. Thanks

Owner's Response: Glad you once again enjoyed your vacation! I'm not quite understanding the "unit needs updating" comment due to the fact that in 2015 the couch and the love seat were completely reupholstered WITH new cushioning as well as new upholstery fabric. As one can see from our pictures and other great reviews it isnt "outdated", so not quite sure where that is all coming from.

Excellent Vacation Choice

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at various places along Dune Allen Beach and this one is by far the best! So clean, well appointed, and decorated beachy. All the comforts of home. We all had fun on the very uncrowded beach! and the pool was almost like our own private large pool. It was indeed just steps away from the porch. We had a few children so there was no running up and down stairs since it's on the first floor. Beach, weather, condo, pool, restaurants all amazing! I recommend this place to everyone!
