Why Danny Blackshear, Bonny Dorough chose Dune Allen Beach

This property is not too far out of Destin but is also not too close to town and traffic. We think we are on the best section of popular 30A. The Vue restaurant, which is one of only three gulf front dining options, is about 100 yards away so you can walk to lunch or dinner. Gulf Place is located about 1/4 mile away and features eclectic restaurants and shopping. They occasionally have afternoon concerts at their pavilion that are free. They have a beautifully manicured lawn to set up an afternoon picnic and watch live music!! Also there is a Tom Thumb convenience store across the street and down about 100 yards. It has items like fresh fruit, a good wine selection and pre made sandwiches. It is very convenient for picking up items when arriving late or if you just forgot something from the grocery store. The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is located about 10-12 minutes away and is probably the largest outlet mall in the panhandle of Florida. Stores include Polo/Ralph Lauren, Nike, J Crew, Banana Republic just to name a few. The unique community of Seaside is just 10 minutes away. Grand Boulevard, which is a high end outdoor shopping area, has a movie theatre, Emeril Lagassees newest restaurant and other high end retail.

What makes this condo unique

Small complex with only 24 units. Ours is on the ground floor. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Destin but close enough if thats what you like. A practical benefit is that a brand new Publix just opened less than 2 miles away. Publix also opened a full Liquor store next to the Supermarket.

Great place, loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here for spring break with two families of four and it was perfect. From the moment I contacted Bonny she has been very quick and efficient in getting back to me and sending me information. The condo is on the first floor which was perfect for our little kids. It made going back and forth to the beach and pool super easy. There was plenty of room for all of us and everything was decorated nicely and very clean. She also had everything we could need in the kitchen from chip and dip holders, to pots and pans, and all the other little things. Also, it was so nice to be able to walk to the shopping area that had a coffee shop and a few other restaurants. We never felt like it was super crowded on our end of 30A, like it was when we ventured out to Seaside. I would absolutely come and stay again!

Perfect place, right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. It's right on the pool and the beach, the rooms are very nice and the condo itself is very very nice. The kitchen and living room are spacious and make you want to spend as much time inside the condo as you do on the beach! The owner was super nice and helpful too, which makes the overall experience that much better! After an 8 hour drive, it was amazing to stay at this condo. We talked about trying to go ahead and rent the same condo for next year. :)

Family vacay

  • 5 of 5

We live in Crestview, FL, and have friends and family from LA and MO who visit every year. We always rent a condo several times a year when our company is in. We usually stay in Destin, but take a day trip or two to 30-A. This year, I was determined to find a place to stay on 30-A. My sister and her family were the first to come in this year and she was very skeptical to not stay where we always stay. But, I convinced her to trust me and she was more than pleased that she let me make the switch. My husband and I searched up and down 30-A, trying to find the perfect spot. We decided on Dune Allen because it was close enough to Seaside and the shops and activities there, but also close enough to Grand Boulevard and Sandestin. It is the perfect middle place. And Dune Allen is such a lovely community within itself. We loved eating at Fire, very close to condo and great food and service. The condo itself was a real crowd pleaser. It was the most well-stocked condo we had ever stayed at, especially the kitchen. We're used to having to go out and buy even the essentials like salt and pepper. This kitchen had a full rack of spices, lots of dishes and cookware. Books, throws, toys, just so many extras that made it truly feel like being at home. The decor was beautiful and beachy, and of course, the white sand just a few steps outside our doorway, was the must-have. When I started my search for a condo on 30-A, I sent several emails requesting information. Danny and Bonny were very prompt in their responses and answered any and all questions. After I had already secured their unit, I finally heard back from one of the others I had sent an email to almost a week ago. We were very pleased with our stay, the location, the condo, and the hospitality of Danny and Bonny. We will be back! The kiddos particularly loved being right beside the pool. For some crazy reason, we cannot convince them, that the ocean is the greatest swimming pool ever made!

Beautiful Unit and Fabulous Location!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed in your beautiful unit over the Mardi Gras week. What a treat! The weather wasn't that great, but we didn't care! The "Palm's" proximity to the beach and beautiful views are truly a delight. Because of the location in Dune Allen, it is no problem to shop, go for groceries, or to find a great restaurant. Seaside, Grayton and Watercolor are just a few minutes away as well, but the beach in Dune Allen is not as congested. The unit itself had everything we needed, with beautiful bedding, an incredibly well-stocked kitchen and very nice furnishings! We'll definitely be back!
