Beach-Berry is a fabulous three-level end-unit townhome. It is one of the newer homes in the secluded gated community of Barrier Dunes. Since purchasing the home Feb. 2012, I have screened in the back porch, added a deck, enclosed the outdoor shower, and installed wood flooring in the main living area. The home is pond front overlooking the tranquil fountain with a small ocean veiw from the third floor balcony. It has a concrete driveway and covered parking for your car and boat. My home is a very private end unit and perfectly located in Barrier Dunes. The ocean, beautiful beaches, tennis courts, two pools, and children's playground are all 500 steps or less from my door-step. Beach-Berry is a well cared for townhome in a secure family community. I have added many touches to make this your very special home away from home. It is beautifully decorated in the colors of the sea with a beach breezy nautical decor. A bottle of Beach Berry wine, a product of the Chautauqua Winery in DeFuniak Springs, will be waiting for you upon arrival. Toast your vacation and then stroll to the beach, catch the awesome beauty of the 20 ft high dunes, and the unspoiled white sand beaches. Capture a radiant Cape sunset, observe sea birds scooping up their dinner, and catch the dolphins playing near the shore line. What you will not find here are crowded beaches and commercialism. This is a serene beautiful place to reconnect with nature, renourish the spirit, enjoy family, make new friends, and create lifetime memories.
At Beach-Berry townhome, I want you and your family, young and old alike, to feel relaxed and carefree. I have included many extras you would not normally find in a beach rental. So enjoy the complimentary wine, sand toys and chairs for your family to take to the beach, floats, boogie boards and beach balls for the swimming pools, rainy day toys/activities for the children, a variety of movies and CD's by top artists. There are facilites/supplies to wash your boat, 4 ADULT BIKES to include llone 3 wheeler with large basket for riding in Barrier Dunes and on the peninsula bike trail; a book collection of novels, children's bedtime story books, and TENNIS RACKETS for the nearby courts. You will find a well stocked kitchen with every large and small appliance/utensil that I could imagine you would need for preparing family meals. You have a nice size electric stove/oven, built in microwave, dishwasher and a refrigerator with an ice maker. I have even included some spices and cookbooks. China and sliverware service will accommodate at least eight.
New purchases include a flat screen Sony Bravo TV, new coffee maker with automatic shut-off timer, George Foreman 24' Electric Grill, and a large gas grill with side burner for cooking up the catch of the day, a very comfortable elegant futon for relaxing and enjoying a good book. To stay connected and share your beach experiences a new router for wireless internet service has just been installed.
For your grooming and comfort needs, I have included extra coat hangers, an iron/ironing board, and 2 hair dryers. I stock good quality bed linens, thick towels, soaps, soft tissue paper and paper towels. The laundry room on the main floor has a full size washer and dryer.
My townhome will comfortably sleep 6-8 people.The large master bedroom has a queen size bed, and a futon that easily folds out to a comfortable bed that will sleep one adult or two children. The master bathroom has a double sink vanity, and a shower separate from the tub. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and a full bath. Down stairs in the large living /dining area is the couch that converts into a comfortable queen size bed. There is also a half bath on this floor.
The floor plan is open and bright with a large bay window seat with comfortable pillows for reading or just daydreaming. The large wood dining table will seat 6, and there is a kitchen bar and 2 stools, and small kitchen table/2 chairs for extra seating. The open floor plan allows you to cook while keeping an eye on the actitivites going on in the main living area.
You will just love the large screened in back porch off the living area with western Gulf horizon exposure overlooking the lake's fountain. The sound of the water cascading from the fountain is very soothing. As the sun peeks out after a shower on a hot summer day, you may capture the rainbow arching over the sparkling water of the fountain.
Beach-Berry is family friendly, so bring the kids and grandparents. Enjoy, relax, and make beautiful memories. You will want to return every year.
