Great family oriented location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 decided to do something different this year for spring break. We typically visit the family home on Oak Island, NC but we really wanted clear blue waters and white sand for a change. We looked into Mexico but due to the safety concerns there we decided to stay stateside. That is when we found Tim and Lisa's home in Santa Rosa beach.

We are so happy that we found them and their home. It was a great experience for my wife and me and our children ages 14, 10, and 7. The home provided plenty of room and amenities to keep us all very comfortable and spaced out while we were in the house. The neighborhood was a great place to explore and walk. The clubhouse, pool, and exercise facility were perfect places to keep you in the neighborhood on days you didn't feel like venturing away.

The state park just up the road was another great perk for boys full of energy. We biked up there one day with the two boys and spent a lot of time exploring the beauty of undeveloped beaches, lakes, and forest. The beaches that are a short car ride or bike trip away are beautiful as well and were not crowded at all even though we were there for spring break.

If you want the hustle and bustle of crowds you can go a few miles down 30A to Rosemary Beach or one of the other more touristy destinations to shop or shoot over to Destin in the other direction.

Our favorite was just being at the wonderfully appointed house and enjoying the view and the quiet solitude the wonderful neighborhood and location provided. I don't think you will find a better all around place to take your family or enjoy a couples week away from your busy life. Nor will you find better people to rent from than Tim and Lisa.

Cypress Dunes house was fantastic, great views.

  • 5 of 5

We had two couples so we had plenty of room in this beautiful 5 bedroom house. Enjoyed the 4 bikes provided and road to the State Park just next door and near by restaurants. Pool and gym were also just a few steps away. Will definitely come back. Thanks to Tim our host for great response on all question. Murray

Beautiful views and home

  • 5 of 5

The house was as advertised and the amenities and the community were great. Within 5-10 minutes driving distance to excellent restaurants, shopping of all kinds and movies. Will definitely return. We have stayed in both of their homes in the community and you can't go wrong with either 1.

Beautiful home, breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Attention to detail and pride in ownership is extremely evident from the moment you walk through the door. Having my morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the preserve and the beach was so relaxing. The master suite is amazing and oozes luxury from the huge walk in closet with built in shelves to the massive shower with double heads and massage settings. I can’t wait to go back!

Tim and the home are 100% as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Home was perfect for our family My wife and I to bring our 4 grown children and their spouses/significant others and 1 grandchild. There was plenty of room for all.

The views are amazing. The pool was wonderful located a short walk away.

You avoid the hustle of Destin but are able to get to all it has to offer in a short drive.

The only pause would be for one to consider how easy they want it to be to reach the beach. In this property you have to drive somewhere to get to it. When you do, you have wonderful uncrowded beaches.

Food options in the area are great.
