This community is located on Hwy 30A which runs along the white sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast, located between Sandestin and Panama City Beach. 'By the Sea' is a beautiful, 4 BR/3BA beach house, with a great design for multi-families and great attention to detail for comfort and class.

You will find a gourmet kitchen adorned with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, a laundry room with a full size 'HE' washer and dryer and a large dining room table to fit the whole family. The living room has a large flat screen TV, surround sound speakers, and wireless internet throughout the house. There is a queen-size bedroom, and an adjacent full size bathroom on the first floor. The french doors from the living room, open to the large balcony, where you can relax in the adirondack chairs and enjoy a beautiful sunset and sea breeze.

The home is alongside a 17-mile bike and walking path that runs along 30A and also loops around the lake. There are several great restaurants and a golf course within easy walking or biking distance. Santa Rosa Beach is a quiet, family-oriented area with no high-rise condos. Yet we're only about 5 miles from Sandestin, 12 miles from Destin and about 25 miles from Panama City Beach.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this clean, updated house. The home is in excellent condition, all of the appliances and furniture were very high quality, the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, plates, silverware, kitchen gadgets, etc. The beds were all super comfortable. There is also a great collection of puzzles and books in the house. The kids loved the location close to the beach access and just steps from the neighborhood pool. The owner was great to work and very responsive throughout the process, we will definitely be back. Dune Allen/Santa Rosa Beach is a wonderful, laid-back area located on County Road 30A just outside the busy, high-density Destin area. The beach was not crowded, even in July and the only time we hit any traffic was driving back into Destin on Highway 98. Great location if you want to unplug and get away from the crowd and still be close all the great restaurants, shopping, outlet malls, etc. in the Destin area.

Happy we found this gem !!

  • 5 of 5

we have been vacationing on 30A for 25 years and after this stay Dune Allen is now our favorite strip of beach in the area . not overcrowded or overdeveloped and just a beautiful beach . Very short walk from the super nice house , best one in the development for us because it had a small private yard off the patio that provided a great view of the lake and space for cooking out .top notch appliances , great kitchen , family room and bedrooms . James was great to communicate with and lighting fast on responses and deposit return . Can't wait to return .

Nice house, great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was clean and airy. The walk to the beach was easy. We loved the area. There was a very laid-back, small beach town feel to Dune Allen unlike the hustle and bustle of Destin. We would definitely return to this area.

week's vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

Condo had plenty of room and when an item that was needed and advertised as available was not there, the owner gave permission to purchase the article and readily reimbursed me for the purchase. Kitchen was well furnished. Laundry room and kitchen appliances worked well. The only problem we encountered was there was such limited parking space.

Delightful Spring Break Trip

  • 5 of 5

Awesome stay! The house is super spacious, super comfy, and in a great location. James, the owner, was very helpful and accommodating to our needs. Great place to ride bikes. My youngest child loved being able to ride a bike into town and eat at a restaurant. Fun times :) . I highly recommend this won't be disappointed.

Wonderful stay from Louisiana

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect arrangement for my family. We worked on the puzzles and just enjoyed being together. The bed in the master bedroom was a dream to sleep on. The house was clean and the furnishing were real nice.
