Cypress Dunes is a gated village of luxury beach cottages located at the beginning of scenic 30-A next to San Destin. This friendly community is nestled between Topsail State Park/Nature Preserve and the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Cypress Dunes does not have direct beach access to the beach due to the beautiful and protected State Park dunes. The local beach access is within biking distance or a short 3-5 minute drive from the neighborhood. There are several public beach access points along scenic Highway 30-A, so take your pick and explore.

Cypress Dunes, a John Willis Planned Neighborhood, has two Regulation Championship tennis courts, walking trails and a beautiful infinity swimming pool and clubhouse that overlook Topsail Hill Preserve State Park and the Gulf of Mexico. The clubhouse also offers a fitness center, hot tub and an outdoor fireplace with free internet access.

Topsail Hill Preserve State Park is known as the most pristine piece of coastal property in the state of Florida. The park is made of more than three miles of white-sand beaches, massive sand dunes (including the Topsail Hill dune, which towers 25 feet above sea level), lakes and indigenous flora and fauna. Visitors are invited to enjoy swimming, bicycling, fishing, hiking, picnicking and more.

You will love 'Rue Cypress' beach cottage for the natural serenity outside as well as the comfortable and relaxing interior. Rue Cypress will impress with its wood floors, high ceilings, elegant furnishings, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen. If you are looking for comfort, serenity and relaxation, then this cottage awaits you! Step onto a spacious front porch and enjoy the beauty and simplicity of the outdoors.

Inside, you will delight in the inviting living area that is perfect for being with family and friends. The open living room is complete with all new comfortable seating and large flat screen HD TV.

The second floor offers a second bedroom with queen bed, HD TV and private bath. The master suite is also located on the second floor with a new pillow top king bed, 47' HD TV and private bath. It's the perfect spot for mom and dad allowing for total relaxation and privacy. Let this be your home away from home and retreat to this cottage for an unforgettable vacation to remember!

Rue Cypress beach cottage is located directly across from Topsail Hill State Park with its native pine trees and varied wild life. The entire Cypress Dunes community is connected with walking paths and bridges, some through the Cypress Pond making a walk to the beach club or the common green area a nature filled adventure.

The Cypress Dunes community offers a long list of amenities in a quiet and peaceful surrounding. Nature trails for relaxing walks, meditation or painting that one of a kind art piece.

Getting to the beautiful white sandy gulf beaches - The closest beach access is a quick 3 minute drive or a fun 10 minute bike ride along a designated walking/bike path. Dune Allen beach public beach is 1/2 mile from Cypress Dunes and offers free parking, lifeguards, bathrooms and showers.

As part of your stay, it is worthwhile to visit each of the beaches along Scenic Route 30A where public access is readily available. These are great beaches for people watching and admiring the many gorgeous beach homes along the shore.

About Robin Jordan

My husband and I love to fish and play golf and I love to paint, read and go to the beach.

Robin Jordan purchased this house in 2014

Why Robin Jordan chose South Walton

It has been a dream of ours to own a piece of this beautiful beach. The beaches of 30-A have been a favorite vacation spot for our entire family for many years. We have traveled all over and have never found a more beautiful beach with emerald water, great food, fishing, golf and shopping. I hope you will love it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

We chose the beautiful neighborhood of Cypress Dunes for the proximity to the beach, shopping, and golf as well as being surrounded by Topsail Hill State Park, the beautiful infinity pool and the safety of the neighborhood. We chose a cottage style home instead of a condo so we could enjoy a more spacious and comfortable place for our family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such an amazing time in Santa Rosa Beach and staying at Rue Cypress. We loved going to the beach, trying out new restaurants, visiting the pool and relaxing on the porch. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. It made our trip unforgettable and we look forward to coming back soon!

If you are trying to decide whether to stay in this home, then let me save you the trouble and tell you it wont be a decision you will regret to stay at Rue Cypress! Our stay was wonderful from the moment we arrived. Beautiful, quiet and safe neighborhood with a beautiful amenity center with a gorgeous pool that had literally breathtaking views! We got the best pics there! Even though you are not on the beach, everyone knows that on 30A you do not have to be on the beach. You can see and enjoy it with great views. The porch was great and if you get up early enough you can enjoy the deer while you have your coffee. The inside of the home is to die for from the beautiful decor to the super comfortable couches and beds. Everything is so organized that there was no confusion about the house. There are notes around the house to answer any question you may have. Also provided is a detailed book with dinner suggestions, discounts for bike rentals, etc and instructions on how to operate all of the equipment. We also had 2 beach chairs with an umbrella that was set up at the public access down the road. Neighborhood people are very quiet and friendly. I have left the best for last, the owner is the absolutely best and easiest person to work with. When I did have one question she was not bothered by me and super quick to answer my questions. From the day I reserved the home to the day we left. We felt like we were home here more than anywhere else we have stayed. Also, parking was so nice with up to 4 cars you can have. We were so very pleased with Rue Cypress and have nothing to complain about! Thank you and we will be back!!

I am a Realtor from Louisville, Kentucky. I see and show a lot of homes, Cypress Rue is top notch! This place is truly beautiful and very very relaxing. The decor, surroundings, large covered front porch and tall ceilings with a fantastic house plan makes this gated community a place we will definitely revisit. Our children had friends further down 30A, we would meet up with our friends and come back every evening saying, Wow this house is so beautiful!!!!! Thank you Robin for allowing us to stay in your home.

Top-notch Property with Excellent Amenities and Extras

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from wonderful stay at Rue Cypress home with 2 parents, 2 children and 2 grandparents---perfect size house for us. Home was well-located (short drive to beach) in private gated community with access to two luxury pools, workout facilities, and nice tennis courts. Great grass common area, perfect for children to play soccer, volleyball, etc. located right behind house. Home itself well-appointed with beautiful furniture, luxury bedding, and nice appliances. WiFi, home entertainment system (including outdoor speakers), and four large TV's (with full cable) made time spent indoors very pleasant. However, we spent most of our time on large covered front porch with sectional seating and swing. Home felt more spacious on inside than even the photos show and extra large dinning table was a big plus. Very cool 'extra' benefits including having two beach chairs and umbrella set up at nearby beach, bike rental discounts, etc. If you do not require a walking distance to beach property, then this home cannot be beat for value and luxury!

Rue Cypress is the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Three sisters (50's/ 60's) had their yearly week long get-a-way at this wonderful home. It has to be one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The home is within a gated community and feels very safe. It is beautifully decorated and very stylish. The beds were super comfortable. The area is so quiet, we all commented that we have never slept better. Bathrooms are high end with plenty of towels and starter supplies. We cooked breakfast everyday and dinner 4 times. We had all the pots, pans and utensils we needed. In the evening, sitting on the front porch couches with a glass of wine and the outdoor speakers playing our favorite music was heaven. There are four high tech flatscreen TV's in the home. We didn't watch much TV, because we were having too much fun outdoors. The clubhouse and infinity pool for the neighborhood is lovely and was never crowded. There also is an exercise room (which we did not use) and a very nice common room with tv and couches. Beaches in this area are gorgeous! The owners of the home have arranged for an umbrella and two beach chairs to be set up daily at the closest beach (Dune Allen area). It was so nice to get to the beach and see them waiting for us. There are other beach chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards and sand toys at the home. The beach is about 3/4's of a mile away and was too far for us to walk with all of our stuff. We drove and had no trouble parking. We rented bikes for the week (Big Daddy's) with a 15% discount. We rode around Top Sail Park, which is right next door and on 30A bike path. Big Daddy's delivered and picked up the bikes (helmets and locks included). We had two amazing dinners at Christiano's and the Vue on 30A and highly recommend both. We visited other beaches/towns to the east (Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Grayton etc) but in the end we preferred to hang out at our "own" beach and the pool. Just a note for those staying this fall and winter, there is a bridge being repaired on 30A right before Grayton and you have to detour north to 98 to get around. We were told it will be out until early March, but it really wasn't much of an inconvenience. In summary, if you are thinking about a visit to the panhandle and want to avoid all the crowds and tackiness of Destin and the uber fakeness of Seaside and Rosemary, this is your area and this is your home. There are lots of places for rent in the area, but seriously, this is one of the best! Don't hesitate to book it, you won't be disappointed.

We look forward to having you stay as our guests again soon. Robin
