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!

- Beautiful home in a beautiful location with excellent amenities!

Sep 11, 2022

- Wonderful Dune Allen Beach cottage! We loved our stay at this property. The location was perfect for us and the home was just as advertised. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was adequately stocked with pots and utensils, and the front porch was a dream. The pool area in the neighborhood is to die for. We would definitely stay again!

Awesome Vacation Home - The Whole process could not have been easier and the home/neighborhood was beautiful, clean, and well maintained. The only negative is that there is not direct beach access and parking is limited. If you get up early enough you will not have a problem. We would come back to this property for sure.

- We stayed here last year and everything was great so we decided to go back.

Beautiful area - My husband and I extended our Florida stay and booked this property. The community was beautiful and very quiet and peaceful. The pool area was picturesque. The home was comfortable. The screened in porch was a nice bonus. The bed was very comfortable. I think the only thing I noticed and it was not a big deal was that there were some signs of wear to the property. It could use some freshening up but honestly who really cares? It was such a great place to stay! My husband even saw deer eating lily pads when he walked on the neighborhood boardwalk. It is right down the street from Topsail National park and the beach there is one of the prettiest I have ever seen! It was a great stay! Thank you!

Wonderful family trip - Our first time to this area. Accommodations were excellent. We loved the feeling of a true beach house. Perfect size for our family of six. Bikes available for use. Loved sitting on the porch. Excellent location to beach and main hwy. Pool area very nice as well. Very nice neighborhood and loved the bridges over the water areas.

Surfin Turtle Beach Trip - I loved the open design of the house. Bedrooms in the back were quiet for folks who did not want to stay up late nights. Yet others could enjoy themselves. The floors need some attention. They were generally filthy. Those of us who kick off our shoes noticed how black our feet got walking on the floors. It was like going barefoot in a Jiffy Mart! The chairs around the dining table need to be thrown out. The bottom cushions are gone. You sit in them and you sink 8 inches into a hole. Time to let these go and get something else. We did appreciate having a table that could fit everyone for every meal. Loved the location. Lots to do. Topsail State Park is a real treasure!! The property managers for the house were top notch, very professional and helpful. Thanks again.

- This was an excellent location. A beautiful, peaceful neighborhood. The pool and hot tub were a hit. It affords excellent access to the beach, bike path, walking trails as well as easy access to both the whimsical 30-A corridor as well as the practical necessities along Hwy 98 such as groceries and The doughnut Hole. The house itself was stylish and clean. It was well appointed and we particularlly appreciated the screened in front porch and the clean functioning gas grill. The beds were also really comfortable. I would highly recommend this property to others and would seek it out in the future for our family.
