Beach communities along a 26 mile area of Highway 30A that are collectively referred to as 30A. Each community has its own personality; includes Seaside, Grayton Beach, Sea grove, Watercolor, Water sould, Rosemary Beach, and Santa Rosa Beach. The area in general is more laid back, less congestive, with no high rises or franchised restaurants. Beaches sport white sand; almost like powdered sugar. Santa Rosa Beach was listed by Yahoo Travel a few years ago as being a top 10 beach. Restaurants are privately owned with many boasting notable chefs.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Fred and I have a real estate company in our hometown of Jonesboro, AR. We have always invested in rental property in Jonesboro, yet always dreamed of investing in the 30A area one day. We now own and manage four properties that are located within a two block area of Santa Rosa Beach.
Why the Owner Chose Dune Allen Beach, FL, USA:
Our family has enjoyed vacationing in the 30A area over the past 40 years and always looked forward to return visits. We rented the beach cottage original to the site of Sunrise Beach and Shell Seekers Cove (no longer standing) on several occasions years ago. And since Sunrise Beach was developed, we have rented there as well. We always thought it would have been special to own that old-style Florida bungalow and remember vividly the wonderful times spent there. Its spirit is still much alive to us to this day. So when we decided to purchase a property of our own, we were excited to locate a property within yards of the home we once desired. That home is now Island Time in Sunrise Beach. Then two years later we discovered what has since become our Island Girl. Her street is possibly the very drive that led to the original bungalow. We spent a year remodeling the home and installing the pool and decking to make her special. We wanted to continue the tradition of providing a place where guests could store their own memories on these special grounds.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I love this particular street of homes; tucked away and yet so close to the beach. I love walking on the private boardwalk and sitting on the steps to the beach watching the sunset, the stars at night and listening to the surf. I could sit there for hours! I also enjoy being able to walk to good restaurants at night. And the decks, pool and oversize decking offer many hours of outdoor enjoyment. But the beach is the special attraction! Walking in the white sand is like walking in powdered sugar. It is amazing!! But then there is the surf!!!!
