The most notable is Gulf Place home to restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. Other attractions include Eden State Garden Park and the Santa Rosa Beach Golf Club.

With an unpretentious coastal lifestyle, visitors of Dune Allen will enjoy spending time outdoors, on and off the beach. Of course Dune Allen Beach offers the same pristine white sand found elsewhere in Northwest Florida, but this quaint community also hosts a state park, nature trails, and several rare coastal dune lakes. Dune Allens convenient location puts the excitement of Destin and nearby South Walton only moments away.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay @ Dune Vista! The House was so comfortable for our family of 10. The view of the ocean was beautiful and access to the beach was perfect! Loved the sunsets each night and enjoyed the pool in the afternoons! We were blessed to be present to witness our daughter’s engagement on the beach at sunset one evening during our stay and look forward to coming back to Santa Rosa again soon!

Great property for multiple families!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! We had 3 families with kids and it was perfect for multiple families. We love the Santa Rosa area. We rented bikes while we were there are bike paths on most of 30A. Also, great fish market near by called GoatFeathers. If you like to cook seafood, they have the freshest shrimp and fish around! The house is right on the beach so we enjoyed sunset every night!

On the pool, we paid for the pool to be heated for our entire stay however the pool heater would kick out and then we would have a cold pool. The management company said that was normal but we own a pool and know you can put them on continuous heat. It was a bit frustrating as this meant we missed a couple of days of swimming!

Owner's Response: Stacy - Thank you for staying with us! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I apologize about the pool heater going in and out. We have since had the pool tech go over and correct this issue. Give us a call when you wish to return to the beautiful beaches of South Walton!

The house is absolutely unbelievable! The pictures of the house just don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

The floor plan was absolutely perfect for our entire family that included 4 separate families with 13 people! Prepare yourself for stairs, we definitely got a leg workout lol, however the tri-level house allowed everyone their own space with several common areas so you never felt crowded. The top balcony off the kitchen and living area have a breathtaking view of the ocean where we saw dolphins almost every morning. There is also a balcony on the second level that overlooks the ocean. The pool is clean, warm and has lounge chairs and a table to provide the perfect setting to cook out with the grill provided! Although this house sits right behind a house on the beach it is a super convenient walk from the garage door to the sand. Dune Allen Beach was the perfect choice of beach and we will never go anywhere else! It was never crowded and we always had a perfect spot for our chairs. Ocean Reef provides you with the basics for your first night stay such as a roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, a packet of dishwasher soap, and mini bottles of shampoo and soap. We found out that there were some necessities needed on our Walmart list so I thought I would share. Definitely add laundry detergent, dish soap, dishwasher soap, scrub brush, baggies, trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, paper plates, bleach wipes, salt and pepper, Pam or cooking oil, solo cups. There is a Walmart less than 3 miles away but the absolute BEST advice I can offer is make a menu for the week and do a pickup order at the Walmart in destin!!! It's a 30 minute drive but will save you hours of grocery shopping for everything you need. Order it online, pick a pickup date and time, pull up and they load it, seriously a life saver. Oh and people leave beach items by the trash cans that they purchased and didn't want to cart back home so we scored multiple boogie boards, water guns, sand toys, boat raft and skim boards without having to purchase and then left them for the next family which is a great way to pay it forward!!! Overall you won't be disappointed if you book this house!

¡The Vista was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Dune Vista was a beautiful home! It was exactly what my family was wanting for our vacation. Everyone had ample space to live and play comfortably. The views were great, the beach was awesome, the pool was perfect, and it was so close to the beach! We just loved it. I am definitely bringing my family back to this location.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Our large family (14) really enjoyed our visit to Dune Vista. The house is beautifully decorated and was plenty large enough for our family. The balcony on the top floor is a great place to sit and visit with a cold drink and watch the twilight sneak in. The 3rd floor has great space for the family to all gather to eat or play games. We enjoyed playing "phaze 10" with our grand kids around the dining table. . We did eat in for the majority of our meals. The kitchen was well equipped and had all the "gadgets" . We also made use of the gas grill on the side balcony. I was pleased that the gas grill was located in area that made it easy to keep children away while grilling. The pool was another favorite. The pool is located in the shade in the afternoons which makes it perfect after a morning on the beach. Our family included 4 teenage girls who really enjoyed sharing the 1st floor living space. They had privacy, but were not isolated. The house has 2 master suites which was also a plus. It was a wonderful week full of great memories at a beautiful home located on a perfect beach.
