About Ocean Reef

For over thirty-five years Ocean Reef has distinguished itself as the leading vacation rental property management company on the Emerald Coast. Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach. Steeped in a tradition of hospitality and exemplary service, we pride ourselves on providing an unmatched vacation experience.

Why Ocean Reef chose Dune Allen Beach

Often referred to as “the town that began it all”, Santa Rosa Beach is the first established community in South Walton. Today, many of the communities that make up this majestic collection of beachfront developments are technically in Santa Rosa Beach. The most notable is Gulf Place – home to restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. Other attractions include Eden State Garden Park and the Santa Rosa Beach Golf Club. Guests seeking to spend their vacation in Santa Rosa Beach can opt for studio style condos at Gulf Place, large vacation homes with private pools near the beach or beachfront custom homes or townhomes.

Best beach ever!

  • 5 of 5

The best beach and area. Love love the short walk to the beach from the house. The house has plenty of room for 2/3 families. The house isn't totally upgraded, but who cares when you have that view and private beach!

We had an Amazing week!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. It was everything that was promised according to location, view of the beach and easy access to town. The sleeping accommodations were perfect. The phone app made check in and out very easy and also gave any additional information we needed at all times. This was by far the best renting experience we have ever had.

The only suggestions I would make is to prepare renters to bring additional cooking supplies. We never had enough pots/pans, mixing bowls etc. to make a full meal. We would have gladly brought that from home verses having to purchase. Also, the oven burners were difficult to cook on, we ended up having to cook most everything on a portable gas burner outside that we had to purchase. Lastly, we were never able to turn on the downstairs lights. That made getting up and down the stairs difficult.

Again, those were all very minor suggestions and never impacted our week of absolute enjoyment staying in the house.

We look forward to spending another family vacation there soon. Thank you for helping us make wonderful memories we will cherish forever!!!

Excellent location- Worn insides...

  • 3 of 5

The star rating is a little deceiving..

The location of this home was is in a quiet part of 30A with minimal congestion and traffic and right on the beach. it is easy to get to some restaurants and grocery stores and other necessities are within 5 minute driving distance. You are right on the beach, so you can hear the surf in every part of the house and you just go right downstairs and you are in the sand. There is also a small plaza with a few restaurants and shops in walking distance and plenty of paths for running and cycling.

inside the house, the lay out is great for 2 families...with 2 clusters of 2 bedrooms and full baths on either side of the living area. It was great for my husband and I to have the master and our daughter to be in the next room, and we could all go back and forth without disturbing anyone in the living area.

The interior of the home really needs some TLC. The carpets were stained and torn in some places. There were open and exposed outlet covers, which was scary with a 3 year old...The kitchen was functional but very much out of date and not on par with other properties we have stayed in near by.

The furniture was comfortable but worn.

The staircase to the upstairs area was a pain, it was tough to get up there and a deal breaker with a small child.

All that being said, when we reached out to the ownership about the repairs or issues they were quick and accommodating and courteous.

Despite any complaints, these are small things and to have gulf views for this price in this area is not easy to find.

Great location

  • 2 of 5

The pictures for inside of the house are deceiving. The interior is in need of attention. Carpet is horrible, some of the bathroom doors don't lock but the location of the house is awesome

Owner's Response: Janet, We apologize that the interior of the home did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately at the end of the season some properties do require some attention. We typically start replacements and repairs in fall, however fall break has pushed that back on everyone down here. We have since scheduled a deep clean for the property which will address the concerns with the carpet. We have also sent maintenance to fix the lock on the bathroom. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the location and we hope that we can have you back again next year.

Great location !

  • 2 of 5

The best thing this place has going for it is location. It is right on the beach with a beautiful view! It is not as nice as the pictures portray. We were given two different wifi passwords and neither worked. the oven does not work properly. It gets way too hot and you have to stand beside it and watch your food very closely. The microwave smelled strongly like febreeze. The master bathroom does not lock. When you use the shower in the master bathroom it makes a loud horrible noise. It woke us up when someone took a shower. Sounded like a vacuum cleaner. Some man came to the door to tell us that the neighbor man was psycho. I wasn't going to post this review until I got no response from the email I sent to the manager. If changes are made, this could be a great place to stay.
