We spent a wonderful week at Daniel Dunes with a crowd of 15 people. The house is nice and well-equipped, and it is close enough to the beach that it is an easy walk for the whole family. We especially liked all of the chairs, kayaks, and beach items that are stored in the garage, but the best beach item was the beach cart that we used to transport all of the items each day!
Stayed for a week at Daniel Dunes with a family party of 12. Great house, great amenities and a phenomenal location. Short walk to the beach, and the “extras” meant so much (seriously, I had multiple people try to buy the house beach cart off of me). This was our first trip to the 30A area and the owners were exceptionally helpful and responsive. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again – 5 stars all around.
Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home. We were able to check in early which was a plus for some of our party since they got there about 12:00. This was the first time that all of our sons and their families could be together in 3 years since one of them lives in New Mexico. Everything was as shown in your pictures and we utilized many of the extras in the garage area. We all enjoyed the beach and all of the kids definitely enjoyed the pool. The gas grill was a little temperamental because one night it would work fine and the next night it took forever. (may need to check the lines on this). We didn’t want to leave since the week we were there flew by. Thank you again and I would definitely recommend your place to others.

Fantastic time at Daniel Dunes. We have been doing yearly trips to the area for the past few years. Daniel dunes has tons to offer. The outdoor amenities were plenty. We used them all. Bikes, kayaks, paddle boards, fishing poles, beach cart etc! Daily swimming, fishing, beach trips were had. The proximity to the beach is perfect! Front area was used for soccer, baseball and football! Locally, we visited the shaved ice shop a few times, Khave and Cream, and went to dinner at Beachcamp brewery.
Marina (host) is great and easy to work with. Timely responses and a great source of information. We enjoyed this part of 30A more than the “busier” sections that we’ve stayed at previously. Hoping for a repeat 2024 adventure!
Our entire family enjoyed another wonderful vacation in Daniel Dunes! It is a perfect location with easy shopping and beach access. The gated security offers added privacy. This home gives our extended family plenty of space and individualized sleeping areas and bathrooms. The availability of bikes and beach equipment provides necessities for enjoyment of the vacation without additional expenses. The pool area is great to enjoy any time. The most important part of staying at Daniel Dunes is the availability and immediate response of the owners, Marina and Patrick Daniel.
We really enjoyed staying at Daniel Dunes. Our family of twelve had plenty of room. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to prepare food. We really enjoyed the pool. Having it heated allowed us to swim at anytime since the weather was unfortunately cold during our stay. There is more than enough chairs and beach toys. The walk to the beach from the house takes less than five minutes. We would definitely stay there again.
We loved our stay here at Daniel Dunes!! We have never been to this area of Florida and immediately fell in LOVE. The location of this house is great and we felt so welcomed from the moment we stepped in the door. We rented a golf cart and spent days going to Seaside for lunch and adventuring around the area. Our children spent tons of time in the warm pool and kayaking in the lake. Our favorite spot in the house had to be the porch swing. The sunset from there is UNREAL. We definitely will be back to 30A and will forever cherish our memories in this house. Thank you so much for being such a great host! 🙂
After much searching for a suitable beach vacation house for our family to meet at, I found Daniel Dunes. Our family of 16 planned to meet and spend a week together. Although one entire family was unable to come, the house was perfect and would have accommodated all of us beautifully. The private pool was enjoyed by everyone and having access to bikes, kayaks and paddle boards for the older grandkids was an added bonus. The beaches were quite crowded during our stay and there was a short walk to the access but that AMAZING beach wagon made it possible and we were the envy of the beach😊 We found that restaurants in the area were super busy with long wait times and reservations were difficult as they were not fully staffed. We ended up cooking most of our meals at the house which was well furnished and included a nice sized gas grill on the deck overlooking the pool. The house is not designed to accommodate the physically challenged as every space requires some stairs but the views and each level balconies afforded great beach views and relaxing areas to catch the breeze and enjoy coffee or even a late night snack and talk with the grand kids. And thanks for the welcome cupcakes. The kids really enjoyed them.
Daniel Dunes was amazing!! My sister, mom, and I stayed with our nine children ranging in ages from 3 to 13! It was perfect for all ages! Our mom stayed with two of the kids in the in-law suite, and the rest of us had plenty of room upstairs. The location of the house is amazing, too! The kids loved playing football, riding bikes, and “hunting” for lizards in the secluded “cul-de-sac” area. And, of course, we all enjoyed making the short walk to the beautiful beach everyday. Not to mention, there were plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys for all of our kids. The second day of our stay we couldn’t get the washing machine to work, but after contacting Marina the issue was fixed within a couple hours, without us even having to be there. We had a wonderful week and can’t wait to go back!
We love our annual beach vacations at Daniel Dunes. We usually make our reservations for the next year shortly after we leave at the end of our week. The entire home is extremely clean – just walk in and start enjoying! This “home away from home” has all the essential things needed to make the stay comfortable – dishes, cookware, linens, grill, pool, washer / dryer. PLUS all the recreational and beach equipment at your fingertips to have all sorts of fun! Marina is so responsive to ANY questions or needs (real or perceived).
