Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Dune Allen Beach - 30A Love Shack

2 Bedroom / 1 Bathroom with Outdoor Shower / Sleeps 6

The 30A Love Shack is a charming 2 bedroom, classic 1950s style Florida cottage with brilliant views of Lake Allen along Scenic Hwy 30A. Only 2 blocks from the beach, this short 4-5 minute walk from the front door to the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico is a snap. It comfortably sleeps 6 and is equipped with everything you will need for a week at the beach. The 30A Love Shack is where simplicity meets style in this recently updated retro getaway. The décor is comfortable-utilitarian and the home is just that, cute and clean.

This is a great location for family memories. Watch sunsets over the lake, stroll the quaint streets of Dune Allen, or grill fresh fish on the deck. You’ll love the large outdoor hot & cold shower and picture windows in the living room. Suitable for either families or a couples retreat, this home will meet all your beach vacation needs.

Constructed in 1953, The 30A Love Shack has been undergoing a face-lift since it was purchased in 2012 with upgrades including new roof, electrical, windows, interior appointments and fresh paint and furniture. Don’t worry, the nostalgic charm has been preserved as this cottage still looks and feels like home at the beach.

The open kitchen, living and dining room capture picturesque lake views while the two bedrooms, bathroom and washer/dryer area line the north side of the home. Both bedrooms are spacious and enjoy light shed from the clerestory windows above. You will be comfortable sleeping with hypoallergenic feather down linens and foam gel mattresses - queen in the master and double in the guest bedroom.

This home is the epitome of low-key comfort. In addition to the amenities of Scenic Highway 30A, The 30A Love Shack is certain to offer repose. You will be planning your next getaway before the first one ends.

No pets permitted...Sorry, no exceptions.

About Kathryn Sistrunk

Born and raised in Destin I wanted to own a property on 30A that reminded me of the way life used to be at the beach, and this cottage fit that perfectly. My family has been in the real estate business along the Gulf Coast for over 30 years and location has always been important to us and to our clients. This home is a great spot to build family memories. I only rent it during the summer months then use it for friends and family in the spring, fall, and winter.

Kathryn Sistrunk purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Kathryn Sistrunk chose South Walton

Simplistic living with views of the rare coastal dune lakes and short walk to the beach. Close to Stinky's Fish Camp restaurant, Gulf front dining at Vue, and summer live music on the green at Gulf Place amphitheater.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is the only rental on the dead end street of Allen Lakeshore. The beach walkover is very convenient and a short walk and the sunsets from the front porch deck are spectacular.

Charming Cottage Close to Beach

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is much closer to the beach than it appears. Very clean vintage charm. Kitchen is well equipped. Ample, nice, oversized, plush towels in bathroom. Outdoor shower was private and awesome!! Located in the midst of a wooded like area, yet around the corner is the beach. Great trip for our family. Only recommendation would be to upgrade the beds. We are 50+, so for us, they were not comfortable. For a younger crew, probably would not be an issue and our 20 year olds had no complaints. Property manager was very responsive and timely in arranging the reservation. Big Green Egg was a hit. View of the lake and sunset was beautiful.

Cozy cottage in Dune Allen

  • 5 of 5

Loved the secluded location of the 30A Love Shack! Home was very clean with convenience of ice maker, high end dishwasher, soft cotton bedding and plenty of fluffy white towels. I loved grilling on the Big Green Egg! Spectacular lake views from the living room and deck made me feel like we were tucked away in the woods, yet only a 5 minute walk to the turquoise blue ocean. There was plenty of room for our family of 4 with two teenage girls. We all used the outdoor shower the whole time, which was well designed for privacy and still provided lots of blue sky and sunshine. We rented bikes and rode about 3 miles to Blue Mountain one day. I took a solo 6 mile ride to Grayton Beach. There are plenty of restaurants within a 10 minute drive as well. We all enjoyed a relaxing week.

Relax in Dune Allen

  • 5 of 5

Loved the 30A Love Shack ! It was all we expected , clean and comfortable with much of the original character of the house intact . Nice lake view from large windows and deck . The one bathroom turned out to not be a problem due to the outdoor shower . We will definitely recommend to our friends and be back again ourselves!

Wonderful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Love Shack. It was extremely clean, completely well stocked with everything you might need and very cozy. It was a short walk to the beach and had a beautiful view from the huge windows and deck overlooking one of the peaceful dune lakes. Convenient to everything on 30A. Thanks for a relaxing week.

Wonderful Family Time at the Love Shack

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time during our stay. Beach was a 3 minute walk. The afternoons spent on the large deck was great. Shopping, grocery and local eateries are just minutes away. Thanks again!

Perfect! Did not want to leave - Even better than we imagined.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the 30A Loveshack! Myself, my wife, and our 1 year stayed for a week over July the 4th. The house was a perfect size for our small group. The Loveshack is in a great location just a short walk away from beach access. We love to cook and the house was already well equipped with everything we needed and more. As others have stated, the outdoor shower was a huge plus! The views of the lake out front were fantastic. I was also very impressed with the cleanliness of the home and the ease of the entire transaction. We could not have asked for a better experience.
