Here are reviews from our guests (includes reviews of Daniel Dunes taken from other listing sites)
Private Paradise!!!! You will LOVE it!!!
We had the most FABULOUS family vacation at this house! Our large family was very happy and loved the spacious bedrooms. The beds were very comfortable too. We spent a lot of time on the multi-level decks watching the ocean and feeling the breeze. We took advantage of the long bike rides and short walk to the beach. They were wonderful! So much thought was put into everything especially the kitchen – they didn’t forget a thing! But the kids’ favorite amenity was the heated pool! It was the perfect temperature even for our off-season visit. I highly recommend renting this house. Neat as a pin, newly and beautifully decorated and it has all the modern conveniences. We can’t wait to go back! 🙂
Look no further for a vacation house. This is definitely it!
We have stayed at many places along 30A and this is by far our favorite! All our criteria and more were met: VERY close to beach, great gulf views (sitting on the deck watching the sunsets was our favorite thing to do), heated pool with plenty of pool furniture, 2 master suites, fully equipped kitchen, wonderful location (we didn’t even realize how great until we got there – being on a lake of Deer Lake State Park was awesome), bike ride away from Seaside and Rosemary, and very clean (whoever cleans this home does an outstanding job). The owners are great to work with and there are so many things in the garage – beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, bikes, kayak, etc – next time we stay, we will have much more room in the car :). We will be booking this home for 2013 – from the calendar, we obviously need to decide on our dates quickly because it looks like weeks are booking up already!
A DREAM beach vacation!
We had a GREAT stay over the New Year’s holiday last year. Like a previous reviewer, I was hesitant to leave a review because I thought we may want to keep this place a secret :). The BEST thing about this home is how very close you are to the beach and the wonderful gulf views – it is as close to being a gulf front home as you can get without the gulf front prices. The walk to the beach is not more than 1 minute and there is very little traffic– so easy to go back and forth throughout the day. Both master bedrooms are very large – can easily fit a couple of kids on an air mattress along with the parents. The house is very well equipped – we didn’t even need to bring any beach chairs or umbrellas – everything we needed was already there for us to use in the garage. Kids loved biking to Seagrove/Seaside and having a kayak whenever we wanted was very nice too. The pool was great – very private with the lake in back. We will definitely be booking for next year! Thanks so much for sharing your home! It’s perfect!
This house was amazing! Everything was lovely and in wonderful condition. Upon arrival I was a little disappointed about so many properties surrounding the house-was I wrong! Once inside, this place was totally private. Never did I feel that other people were on top of us and the pool is so secluded with a private view of the lake. The bedrooms and baths are spacious. We had our children and young grandchildren and there was plenty of room and privacy for all. We took portacribs and high chairs and there was ample room for all. The balconies are totally enclosed with gates at the top of each staircase. Everything that you could ever need is included. We were so pleased with all of the beach equipment-all we needed were our towels and sunscreen. The beach was never too crowded even though we were there in July. The beach is just across a small road with little traffic. We had four cars and parking was never a problem.
We walked, ran or biked everyday. Bikes were furnished for all ages. It is a short distance to the main road and then the walk/bike paths go for miles in both directions. Our only regret was that we did not have time to take the kayak out.
The entire house is stone tile. This is great for a house on the beach. A little worrisome with young toddlers but we never had any problems.
The owners seem to really care about their property. My questions were answered immediately. This was a terrific find for us. We could not have had a better house to bring our family together in. It helped make our vacation a week to remember. Would definately rent this house again.
