About Diane and Kevin Dupont

Our family has been vacationing on the Florida Coast for over 20 years. We come down to visit friends that make 30A their full time home. They purchased several cottages over the years and while staying in them, we too fell in love with the area and all it has to offer. We just took the plunge to purchase this cottage to enjoy ourselves and to share with our guests when theye need to get away from the real world.

Diane and Kevin Dupont purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Diane and Kevin Dupont chose Inlet Beach

We chose this property based on the location. So close to Rosemary Beach and everything it has to offer, but not the high price tag or traffic. We also are encouraged by the amount of growth in the 30Avenue area of Inlet Beach. We are confident that soon this will be an extension of 30A with the same beauty and lifestyle.

What makes this cottage unique

Beach access is ideal for either walking, biking or packing the car up with everything and everyone to taking advantage of the public parking, restrooms and showers.

The experienced property managers live 10 minutes from the property year round so response time to any issues is quick, unlike rental management companies with normal business hours.

Excellent location and super clean house!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt we hope to return to The Winking Turtle. I loved the location, loved the house and LOVE the beach at Inlet Beach. The house has everything you need and is very comfortable. The ONLY negative is the extremely close proximity to Highway 98 and the road noise at night. It was loud although there's nothing the property owners could do to change it as it is what it is. Next time I will know better to bring a sound machine. :) Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Beautiful cottage minutes from Inlet Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two teens had a great stay at this wonderful cottage. Inlet Beach is less than a five minute walk from the cottage. The beaches in Inlet are wider and less crowded than Rosemary which made our beach experience more enjoyable. We walked over to Rosemary and everyone was packed 3 rows deep. You can walk or bike over to Rosemary and still enjoy the town square and all of the ice cream shops and restaurants without getting stuck in all of the traffic. House is very clean with all new appliances and features. You have to cross 98 in order to get to the beach, but it is very manageable with the cross walks and pedestrian median. Plenty of room for the 4 of us (2 adults/2 teens). You could easily fit 2 couples and 4 small children if needed. Extremely convenient to all that 30A has to offer. We would definitely stay here again.

Clean & comfy-great location

  • 5 of 5

We especially enjoyed this location during a very busy spring break week as it was close to all of the action but removed and less hectic at the same time. Inlet beach itself is a wonderful family beach and provided relief from some of the spring breakers. The home was very clean and the rental process was easy and efficient. We wouldn’t hesitate to be repeat renters.

Beautiful, new home with everything you need for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had two adults and 4 teenagers on this trip. The home is set up perfectly for a crowd this size. We loved the large kitchen. All of the bedrooms are nicely decorated and the beds are very comfortable. The home is located on a quiet street about 2 blocks from the beach. Not a bad walk. The cart that is provided was an added bonus, greatly appreciated. The public beach access is easy to traverse, no steps as with other public accesses.

We walked to the Donut Hole, always a favorite, and to Shades Restaurant. Both very good. Also made it to Big Bad Breakfast, very tasty. Diane and Kevin were very easy to work with, all of my questions were answered quickly.

We loved the home and Inlet Beach. Will definitely return in the future.
