Highly recommend staying here!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay in this lovely beach house. It is so clean and roomy!! We love Cypress Dunes. It is always so peaceful and quiet. The infinity pool overlooks the gulf and is a must see. It is always hard to say goodbye to such a pleasant and stress-free environment.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of the 4th of July which is probably one of the busiest weeks of the year. I mention this because Cypress Dunes remained very relaxing and peaceful despite the hustle and bustle all around us. Loved the home and really enjoyed having such wonderful amenities. The neighborhood pool, gym and grounds were gorgeous and easily accessible. The owners Tim and Lisa were very helpful and accomadating during the whole process. We look forward to another stay at this property.

Beautiful and clean house! Community infinity pool overlooking dunes and ocean- amazing!

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful and clean! Stocked kitchen was nice when making family breakfast. The bicycles were a great addition to our recreation. The boys loved riding them to Stinkys Bait Shop for a non-alcoholic "mermaid juice. Owners ongoing communication and 'welcome' sheet very helpful with house tasks, wi-fi etc... Our family felt at home away from home.

Lovely beach home

  • 5 of 5

This house truly feels like a home from it's cute beach decor to the included bikes. Everything was neat and clean when we arrived. The owner is quick to respond and very easy to communicate with.

The location of this property is ideal. It's about a mile from the beach, a couple of miles from a movie theater and outlet mall, and close to many wonderful restaurants. The pool in this community is beautiful - overlooking a state preserve. The fitness room has been updated and has treadmills, ellipticals, a bike, some weight machines and a stack of free weights. Also, in this neighborhood are 2 tennis courts.

We love this community and house! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful week away

  • 5 of 5

Cypress Dunes is one of our favorite vacation destinations. We enjoyed our stay at Serenity Now. The kitchen has everything you could need, especially made use of the crockpot and mixer. Having bikes available was a nice touch also.

Tim was very responsive to our questions and concerns. We would definitely stay again.
