About Susan Alfieri

'THE LAST RESORT' owners, Susan & Donal Alfieri, enjoy a beach moment on the dunes of pristine Inlet Beach.

Susan Alfieri purchased this house in 2000

Why Susan Alfieri chose Inlet Beach

We purchased this acre lot in the early seventies, designed the home we would build atop the dunes, viewing the coastline for miles, and eventually built it in 2000. 'THE LAST RESORT' would be our pet-friendly rental paradise and folks could come on vacation with their dogs.

What makes this house unique

Now Mr. Alfieri & I not only stay here, but LIVE here on E Park Place Ave. In 2003, after completing the beautiful private pool the previous year, we built our primary residence, 'BILLABONG', next door, so we are able to give 'on-the-spot' management. The use of our GOLF CART is considered for your local beach trips

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We have stayed all over the South in VRBO homes with our two mutts and this is far and away the best! Firstly, the Alfieris are fun, helpful, generous hosts. Secondly, the house, the beach and the pool are a combination that can't be beat. All the wonderful grocery stores and restaurants are so close by.

Thirdly, it is hard to find a place that is so welcoming to dogs. They are like our children .. it is wonderful when they are treated that way.

We can't wait to come back!'

Beautiful property, wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We loved "The Last Resort". My family and I had a great family vacation here. The house had all the amenities of home and the deck was absolutely amazing. Plenty of room for my husband and I, our two daughters and our little fur legged buddy. Sue and Don were wonderful and their hospitality goes above and beyond. Overall it was a wonderful experience, and would definitely return.

OK Stay, several opportunities .....

  • 2 of 5

Internet issues (WIFI) didn't work in beginning of the week, I had to call service provider 3x waiting for tech to come to get it fixed. House was is VERY outdated; couches, beds, etc. kitchen is old with broken pots. Homeowner lives in house next door on same land, There is a big dog that lives there unleashed with droppings throughout property.

Positives were: very close to beaches, and other fun attractions and it was dog friendly.

Overall it was an ok stay, I will def do better research on VRBO for future rentals.

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying at The Last Resort. It was a perfect vacation get away. The house has everything you need and a great pool. At the beach the crystal clear water was outstanding this year and we had a great view of the amazing emerald coast while sitting on the deck. Susan and Donal were wonderful host and so friendly. We hope to return and enjoy this rare gem!

Perfectly Charming Getaway, One of a Kind!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at The Last Resort! This one of a kind property is not a cookie cutter, pristine 30-A rental. It is a unique and wonderful experience. I've been staying on 30-A at least once a year for over 20 years, and you will not find the charm and amenities the Last Resort has to offer in such a private, unique location. The entire property is truly old school 30-A beach house, nestled in an enclave just a short bike ride or brisk walk to Rosemary Beach. Our visit included 4 pre-teen boys, 4 adults, and 1 chocolate lab for 8 days and we loved having room to spread out. We all enjoyed time on sunsets on the deck swing with incredible gulf breeze and views, chilling poolside, riding the golf cart around Inlet beach, relaxing on the hammock, national park views next door, playing cards on the porch, strolling to the beach, reading, or cooking up a storm in the homey kitchen. The Last Resort home is filled with memorable original art and shabby chic collectibles. And if you are inclined, take the time to get to know the fascinating owners, Susan and Donal. Extremely enchanting, charismatic people who go out of their way to welcome and accommodate. Most will quickly appreciate the passion and vision that they put into creating this oasis. Highly recommended and hope to return very soon! Thank you Susan and Donal for a wonderful and memorable week!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for a family vacation. The house is cute and had all the amenities needed. We have stayed in several vrbo's and this one was the most accommodating. The deck is amazing. And the pool is just a few steps away. The place is very private and secluded. The public beach access is in the neighborhood. We can not wait to come back. The enclosed kennel is great for dogs. I would disregard the negative comments left from May 2014. The owners are great people and we enjoyed visiting them!
