About Katie/Ray

Journey's End was destroyed by Hurricane Dennis on July 10, 2005. It was rebuilt and came back on line in 2009.

We have continually been renting our condo to Guests for 35 years, except when the condo was being rebuilt after Hurricane Dennis in July 2005.

Katie/Ray purchased this condo in 1983

Why Katie/Ray chose Dune Allen Beach

Why book Journey's End condo #205?

Journey's End can't get any closer to the beach.

We like to supply everything possible, including the Real Cabana Beach Chairs, Leg Rests, umbrella and many more amenities to make your vacation with us more enjoyable.

We feel that our pricing compared to other comparable condos on the Gulf makes staying with us a much better value.

Take care, Katie

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic week! Weather warm and beautiful, beach quiet and clean! Week ends far too soon!! Ray is the ultimate host and we feel him our dear friend. His condo feels like “home away from home.” Thanks so much for all your special touches – flowers, wine, goodie basket, etc.

We enjoyed seeing Ray again and discussing everything from politics, religions, and sports! Mostly Sports ( What else being from Louisville, KY!). Hope to see you again very soon!

Journey's End 0n the Beach, beautiful condo, beautiful location. Right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Journey's End #205 for the last 7 years. It has become our home away from home. On arrival we were greeted with beautiful fresh flowers and a delightful gift basket. The pictures online do not do it justice. Not bring anything for cooking. It is the best equipped condo we have ever stayed at. Everything and anything you might need is supplied. Even the Cabana beach chairs and umbrella. We have already booked a week in the spring of 2018. Don and Patricia, Houston.

Absolutely the Best

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from a weeks stay at your beautiful condo.We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary by returning to the area where we were married. We spent lazy days on the beautiful uncrowded beach with the provided cabana chairs and umbrella(THANKS!!) We walked to Stinky's for a wonderful anniversary dinner with friends. We dined at a few other places along 30A, all delicious!! All pictures posted here are very accurate especially the balcony view! This is a true beach/ocean front location with nothing obstructing the fabulous view! We've stayed at other places along 30A for the past several years but Journey's End has to be the very best!! Upon our arrival we were greated with fresh flowers on the table, a delicious gift basket and beautiful music playing! Never before have we experienced such personal touches when renting a condo in Florida. Ray, you are so very thoughtful and accomodating! We look forward to returning next year and certainly plan on staying here again and again! The search for the perfect place is over at last!!!

Journey's End #205

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this unit in March 2010 with our kids. It was so much more than we expected. The pictures don't do the unit justice. When we arrived there were several little unexpected touches. The property was rebuilt after the hurricane in 2005 and it is still in mint condition. We would definately stay here again.
