Property description

The 30A Love Shack is a charming 2 bedroom, classic 1950s style Florida cottage with brilliant views of Lake Allen along Scenic Hwy 30A. Only 2 blocks from the beach, this short 4-5 minute walk from the front door to the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico is a snap. It comfortably sleeps 6 and is equipped with everything you will need for a week at the beach. The 30A Love Shack is where simplicity meets style in this recently updated retro getaway. The décor is comfortable-utilitarian and the home is just that, cute and clean.

This is a great location for family memories. Watch sunsets over the lake, stroll the quaint streets of Dune Allen, or grill fresh fish on the deck. You’ll love the large outdoor hot & cold shower and picture windows in the living room. Suitable for either families or a couples retreat, this home will meet all your beach vacation needs.

Constructed in 1953, The 30A Love Shack has been undergoing a face-lift since it was purchased in 2012 with upgrades including new roof, electrical, windows, interior appointments and fresh paint and furniture. Don’t worry, the nostalgic charm has been preserved as this cottage still looks and feels like home at the beach.

The open kitchen, living and dining room capture picturesque lake views while the two bedrooms, bathroom and washer/dryer area line the north side of the home. Both bedrooms are spacious and enjoy light shed from the clerestory windows above. You will be comfortable sleeping with hypoallergenic feather down linens and foam gel mattresses - queen in the master and double in the guest bedroom.

This home is the epitome of low-key comfort. In addition to the amenities of Scenic Highway 30A, The 30A Love Shack is certain to offer repose. You will be planning your next getaway before the first one ends.

No pets permitted...Sorry, no exceptions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Born and raised in Destin I wanted to own a property on 30A that reminded me of the way life used to be at the beach, and this cottage fit that perfectly. My family has been in the real estate business along the Gulf Coast for over 30 years and location has always been important to us and to our clients. This home is a great spot to build family memories. I only rent it during the summer months then use it for friends and family in the spring, fall, and winter.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA:
Simplistic living with views of the rare coastal dune lakes and short walk to the beach. Close to Stinky's Fish Camp restaurant, Gulf front dining at Vue, and summer live music on the green at Gulf Place amphitheater.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This home is the only rental on the dead end street of Allen Lakeshore. The beach walkover is very convenient and a short walk and the sunsets from the front porch deck are spectacular.
