Use the 4 adult bikes to take a leisurely ride to the Dune Allen Beach Access point 1.6 miles away! There are no hassles while you are here, just relax. Avoid the crowds, park in your own driveway and walk up the steps to your front door. With a king bed in the master bedroom, queen bed in the first guest room and twin beds in the 3rd guest room, this beautiful home sleeps 6 comfortably. This home boasts an open concept living space, hardwood floors, 14ft ceilings, granite countertops, washer/ dryer for your convenience and fantastic neighborhood amenities! 

Along the west of 30A, just east of Miramar Beach, you’ll find the luxury gated community that is Cypress Dunes. Here begins the 18 mile bike path that stretches all the way to Rosemary Beach. You will love neighborhood amenities here that include gulf views from the infinity edged swimming pool (seasonally heated for spring and fall school breaks and the holidays), outdoor fireplace, large hot tub, fitness center, and a second-level sundeck overlooking the Gulf & Coastal Dunes Lake. Stroll along the wooden boardwalk and nature trails, have a picnic on the expansive recreational lawn area or get your game on at the tennis courts. For luxury and convenience, Cypress Dunes truly has something for everyone!

30A is a fantastic destination, the beaches are some of the world’s best with sugar white sand and emerald green waters. You will find plenty of beach accesses along a 17 mile stretch of Santa Rosa Beach. It boasts unique shopping, fantastic cuisine and the incredible architecture that makes 30A famous. There are activities for everyone; kayak rentals, bike rentals, paragliding, fishing, golfing, hiking, swimming, tennis -- you'll find it all right here. 

The Gulf Place community is located along a 26-mile stretch of sugar-white sand and turquoise waters of Northwest Florida’s celebrated Emerald Coast. As one of the 16 distinct beach neighborhoods in South Walton, it has its own distinct character and charm. This colorful community on 30A is comprised of 25 acres located in the heart of Santa Rosa Beach on the corner of 30A and 393. Gulf Place was specifically designed to slow visitors and locals down with palm tree-lined streets, wide sidewalks, colorful outdoor patios with large umbrellas, nature walking trails, green spaces and ample park benches to sit and enjoy the views. Gulf Place is unique from all the other South Walton neighborhoods. Residents and guests gather here to enjoy original art, boutique shopping, local cuisine, live music and a laid back atmosphere.

The snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Seahorse Reef, deployed in 2017. Located just 715 feet out from the Topsail Hill Preserve State Park access, it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Seahorse Reef is at a depth of 13-18 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

The property manager was excellent. I had many many questions. They were all answered quickly and professionally. I really appreciated the garbage pickup on our first day -- even though official garbage pickup wasnt supposed to happen until Monday. The can was full! RealJoy got the garbage picked up within an hour of our checking in. Also, I appreciate how quickly you brought a new gas bottle for the grill when I reported it out. But please, the floors in this house need a deep cleaning. Our feet were black the whole time from the floor.

Wonderful vacation rental. The home was cozy yet spacious. The neighborhood and amenities are first class as well. we had to leave three days early because of the two storms in the Gulf. Hope we can come back and get those days back!
