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, roller blading, fishing, hiking, picnicking and more.  
You will love this beach cottage for the natural serenity outside as well as the comfortable and relaxing interior. This cottage 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 comfortable, oversized seating and large flat screen HD TV.  A fully equipped kitchen is open to the dining room that seats 8.  Free WiFi  internet access and free U.S. long distance calling on house phone.

The first floor has two bed rooms, both with queen beds, flat-screen cable TVs, DVD players and private baths. Each bedroom opens out to the private screened in porch, perfect for morning coffee or cocktails at dusk.  The second floor master is the perfect spot for mom and dad, with their own private bath, private porch and king bed, for total relaxation. Let this be your home away from home and retreat to this cottage for a vacation to remember! 
This cottage is located directly behind the cypress pond with its majestic cypress trees and varied wild life.  The entire Cypress Dunes community is connected  with  walking paths and bridges making a walk to the beach club or the common green area a nature filled adventure. Two regulation championship tennis courts are located just across the street from the Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise house.

The Cypress Dunes community offers a long list of amenities in a quiet and peaceful surrounding. The upscale amenities include a beach club which showcases a gulf front Infinity edge pool, state-of-the- art fitness center, outdoor jacuzzi and fireplace, observation sun deck with incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico, and a banquet room just waiting to host your special event. Two regulation championship tennis courts are located just across the street from the Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise house. Nature trails for relaxing walks meander throughout. You can always walk to the beach which is about a twelve minute walk or five minute bike ride. 

Getting to the silver sands gulf beaches - access is about a 12 minute walk or a 5 minute bicycle ride, or a real quick drive to public, free parking area with public bathrooms and showers and life guards on duty March thru September.
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. 

Great Golf courses such as Santa Rosa Golf Country Club, Sandestin, Camp Creek, Burnt Pines, Regatta Bay and Kelly Plantation are all within 5-20 minutes. And the SHOPPING... you won't believe the bargains at the Silver Sands outlet mall which is 10 minutes away. If you are tired of those same old condominium experiences....Then give this gated cottage community a try....
Cypress Dunes and its surroundings are ideal to explore on a bike. Miles of paved trails at the beaches of South Walton are ideal for biking during your visit to Cypress Dunes. Both beginner and advanced cyclists enjoy the 18.6-mile scenic 30-A bike trail that winds through the area’s coastal dune lakes and villages.  You can rent a bike at several of the nearby bike shops in the area. You can call them and they will deliver the bikes to the cottage.  See our personally prepared directory of the area's unique restaurants, bars, activities, shops and professional services for more information.

Exactly what we were looking for    Aug 10, 2020

review star

We rented this house as a surprise vacation to celebrate our daughter’s 18th birthday and it did not disappoint. The owner was very hands on and was in contact with us to see if we needed anything from the moment we rented the house through VRBO. He was always available to answer questions and we got to meet him when we checked in.

The property is exactly as pictured and the neighborhood is quiet and we felt very safe being out early in the morning or late at night. The pool is amazing and the fitness center is also well appointed with equipment.

Santa Rosa Beach is much less crowded then the other beach towns on 30A, yet there’s a Walmart within 5 minutes of the house when you need something. We rented bikes and really liked biking around the neighborhood and using the bike path along 30A to get to the beach or to bike to dinner.

We will definitely be going back to this area next year!

Cypress Dunes Vacation - August 2020    Aug 01, 2020

Cypress Dunes is a great place to take a vacation. Pool is great. Neighborhood is quiet. Logistics to anywhere you want go are good. Very nice development overall. Dune Allen is a great beach and community.

Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise at Cypress Dunes is a great place to stay. Home is very nice, well kept and very functional.

Andy, the owner is great to work with and really wants his customers to have a great vacation!

Highly recommend this location!

Great Stay at Gulf Beach Paradise

The house is very clean, well stocked, and just as beautiful as the pictures on VRBO. We had plenty of room for 6 adults to hang out together or to find their own spaces to relax. We spent a lot of time outside on one of the 3 patios/porch. The community is quiet and well maintained with a fantastic pool and scenic grounds. We usually stay closer to Destin but really enjoyed being off of 30A. There was a lot less traffic but still plenty to keep us entertained. The beach was easily accessible by bike and was not very crowded. (We were able to maintain good social distancing!) We also enjoyed morning bike rides to nearby coffee shops and spent some time riding around Topsail Hill Preserve State Park.

The owner, Andy, was more than accommodating. He answered our many questions before the trip, especially our concerns about Covid-19. He was always quick to respond and was very helpful with suggestions before and during our stay. He really helped to make our trip a success!! We would definitely consider staying at this property again! It was a great week!!

This property was so easy to find and the neighborhood is very nice.
Quality furniture, very comfortable beds and chairs. Wonderful king sleigh bed in master bedroom

Wonderful stay at Cypress Dunes    Dec 28, 2019

review star

We loved our time at Cypress Dune! The house was even prettier than was pictured, and the location was ideal - close to restaurants and shopping, if we wanted to venture out, but quiet and surrounded by natural beauty. We spent a lot of time at the nature preserve next door to the property and had some great walks. We would definitely like to return!

This was the fourth time we have stayed at Cypress Dunes. We absolutely love this community and area. Our house was awesome. It was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated and had all the essentials we needed. The house is located across from the tennis courts and just a short walk from the pool. The owners were wonderful to work with...couldn’t ask for better hosts. We will definitely stay here again.

This is paradise    Aug 18, 2019

review star

The house is ideally located in a gated community which is very quiet and well maintained. The house is spacious , clean and well stocked. There was nothing we wanted for or needed to make our stay better. There are boogie boards, beach towels and beach toys to use which was awesome for the kids.

The communal pool is spectacular. It was warm and crystal clear. Plenty of sunbeds and shade for everyone, it backs onto a conservation area which is stunning. The whole area is peaceful and easy to walk around, and feels very safe.

Cypress Dunes is very well located to access a beach a mere 2 minute drive down the road or supermarkets/shops. Everything was easy to get to, lots of choices for food/restaurants. The area itself was quiet and parking was never an issue.

We had the pleasure of meeting the owner and his wife. Both very generous and kind people who were genuinely interested in making sure our stay was enjoyable and were available for any questions we had.

Not only would highly recommend this property, the area and dealing with the owner, my family and I would return as it was one of the best vacations/locations we have had in Florida and indeed, many other parts of the world.



Excellent all around    Aug 11, 2019

review star

I and my family loved this house and neighborhood. It was clean, spacious, interior decor was calming and inviting and so well put together. I have nothing but a very big positive about this property. My family has already declared they want to come back to this property. I loved the neighborhood and the pool. The Cypress Pond behind the house with many flowering lilies and singing bullfrogs. I had a great rest here. The house is well equipped for all you needs. We ate in almost every day and had all utensils needed. The owner is very accommodating and checked for our needs and comfort. I highly recommend this place.

Great Family Vacation    Aug 03, 2019

review star

Andy's home is fantastic. The listing is very accurate. The home was really great and housed a family of five (two teens and pre-teen) with room to spare. The gated community was incredible and we used the infinity pool just about daily. After staying in Destin, staying in Santa Rosa was such a blessing. Close enough to do what we wanted but none of the traffic of Hwy 98.



Family vacation - We had A terrific Time..................    Jul 06, 2019

review star

We had a great stay at Cypress Dunes/Santa Rosa Beach. Andy was an outstanding VRBO host! He was very friendly and communicated with us a number of times. He sent us very detailed emails about check in, codes, details of the property, area attractions, great places to eat, etc. He even went the extra mile and sent us a large envelope full of brochures.

The listing is very accurate and the home looks as pictured. Cypress Dunes is a beautiful development and the pool is amazing! It is nice, well maintained, and quiet. Great spot for a family vacation :-)

We enjoyed Andy’s home a great deal! Nice furnishings and beds. Pool Area and fitness center was an added bonus. We used a golf cart to get to the beach and it was perfect for our group Of 6 ladies on a girls trip. We would definitely consider renting this beautiful home again.



Loved everything about this place! The pool was the best    Jun 17, 2019

Andy G was a wonderful owner who made sure everything was in order. 5 stars all the way around!
Infinity Pool is the real jewel -- We voted it the best on Hwy 30-A! You can hear the roar
of the beach from your chair at the pool.

We've just returned from a week at Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise Cypress Dunes. We had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed the home. There was plenty of room for our large family, with a well stocked kitchen, and nice furnishings throughout. We enjoyed the charm of the neighborhood, how quiet it was and conveniently located to the beach and nearby amenities. The pool was a short walk around the corner, and just beautiful. Overall, we were very pleased and could not have asked for more. We can't wait until we can plan our next trip and come back for another relaxing stay!

Beautiful house, quiet gated neighborhood    Apr 13, 2019

review star

Our children's families stayed here while we were nearby at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. The house had everything they needed and was beautiful. They loved the infinity pool. It was only a short drive down the street to Dune Allen's public access beach and the Topsail beach. It was also so easy to just keep all the "beach stuff" in the car for our daily Dune Allenbeach trips. We just love 30a Santa Rosa Beach, No High Rise Condo. Andy the owner was great to work with and gave us tips on good restaurants and happy hours.

“No need to look any further for a place to stay". There are a million listings for Destin but this place is the best. It’s quieter (to the West of Destin) and the community is quiet and clean. Great amenities, beautiful home, great place to relax and vacation.”

We have stayed at the Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise house many times. It is the number one place to rent! Beautiful place, great proximity to the Beach, Shopping, and Restaurants.  You won’t be sorry to stay there! Beautiful, clean, looks like a brand new house. Also The Cypress Dunes Community is magnificent as well. Perfectly manicured grounds with the greenest grass you will ever see, beautiful palm trees and well lit streets for evening
walking. We will be back again this fall.

HWY. 30A: REST & RELAXATION AT ITS BEST!!    Sep 02, 2018

review star

My wife and I came to Destin to spend 2 weeks alone for the first time in 26 years.

We arrived in Destin on Labor Day weekend on Saturday afternoon. Our original rental was a wore out, unclean disaster through Beach Escapes Realty in Caribe. They were not willing to help us with other accommodations, so we sat on the front porch scouring the internet for a new location at 4pm. My wife found a location she liked, I called Home and Away but since it was to late to book for Saturday night, the only way we could contact the owner was by email. In no way did I expect to get a response that late, but Andy personally called me back in 20 minutes!! He must have heard the desperation in my wife's voice, as they assisted us in finding a place to stay for the night and had their rental ready for us the next morning!!

After renting homes in Destin area for the last 25 years, I will share a valuable piece of advice: try and avoid renting through a realty company who manages the house for the owner; instead try and deal directly with an owner who "takes pride" in "their" personal investment. Most owners using realty companies to manage the rentals will NEVER be as attentive as Andy and Michele Glantz.

We had never stayed on 30A and even though the neighborhood has no access to the beach, you have public accesses within minutes. If you liked to walk, run or bike: the paved path outside the neighborhood will give you unrestricted access to exercise!

 Or a real quick drive to public, free parking area with public bathrooms and showers and life guards on duty March thru September.

We spent most of our time at the beach but if it's pool time you enjoy, Cypress Dunes Infiniti Pool is one of the nicest we've ever seen. The view is one of the most unique in the area, with views of the Gulf and a huge forest of evergreens to the West.

The workout room is outfitted with excellent equipment and space! If you like to avoid traffic noise and the hustle and bustle of Hwy. 98/Old 98, Cypress Dunes is gated and quiet.

The Glantz house allowed us to relax and enjoy our entire stay. Everything was very comfortable, Andy quickly responds if you have any questions about things to do.

They also provide a folder narrowing down your choices of good food! Andy led me straight to some of the best gumbo in the area!

Cypress Dunes - AMAZING infinity pool    Jul 14, 2018

review star

“I can not say enough great things about our stay at Andy's place. From the moment we booked to the day we left, everything was stellar! His pictures of his home are exactly as shown if not better. The home is in a beautiful gated community was much bigger than I had anticipated. His communication and information that he provided on where the best places to eat, to go and things to do were more than I could of asked for. I don't think we would of had nearly as good of a time that we did if it weren't for Andy and all his guidance. The location (Santa Rosa Beach) was so nice to be right outside of Destin so close enough to touristy things but far enough to where we had R&R at the POWDER SAND beaches right by the house and the AMAZING infinity pool and hot tub in the community. I have booked through AirBnB many times before and none of the owners cared about my stay as much as Andy. We will absolutely be booking again!”

Had a great vacation! The house exceeded expectations, great layout for 3 couples! Pool was great! Loved the beautiful quiet neighborhood and the state park next door!

The owner was helpful and accessible and we appreciated that he sent us info before our stay about the area! Would definitely stay again!

This home is pure luxury - clean and very well appointed, with extra tall doors and windows, granite counters, soft beds, and the perfect spacious floor plan for our family or any family or group of friends, for that matter! From the moment we entered this peaceful, manicured gated community with enormous rosemary plants, magnolias, palms, and of course, cypress trees! we truly felt like we were in paradise! If we needed groceries, the Super Walmart is less than a mile away - the beach is even closer - all kinds of restaurants are close driving distance (without getting in awful  traffic).  Also, the neighborhood amenities are awesome - tennis courts, infinity pool, gym, green space, walking bridges through cypress stand ...! and super fun and easy to bicycle in the whole area!
We can't wait to come back next year!

Enjoyed our stay here. The house was nicely laid out and very comfortable. Enjoyed the location, close to the event we were attending but not right on top of it. Easy to get to other areas as well.

Enjoyed our time and would definitely use this property again. Mr Glantz was a very accommodating and helpful host

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of tourism, this is a great place. Very spacious home, but also very cozy. Great restaurants and food. Friendly people. Beach nearby. Awesome view of the ocean from the pool. Situated between 2 major tourist cities, so there's plenty to do within a short distance should you choose to indulge. We enjoyed a very successful deep sea fishing trip out of Destin.



A luxurious home in a beautiful setting    Sep 30, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise home ! It truly exceeded our expectations. Before you book any other residence in Cypress Dunes contact Andy first. We had the opportunity to meet him first hand, and he was as nice as the property. He made us feel welcome & became a part of vacation experience! We also rented bikes from 30 A bike rental (the best) and beach chairs/umbrella from Burkes beach rentals (great & reasonable). A wonderful stay, our second visit to this community & we will be back."You've tried the rest... now call the BEST" Andy Glantz

Awesome Vacation Home A+++
We loved our family vacation on 30A! Staying in the Glantz Gulf Beach Paradise home was perfect for our entire family! It was a beautiful home and we had plenty of room! It was so nice that every bedroom had it's own bathroom! It was so peaceful in the neighborhood. It was a great place to relax after a day on the beach. The pool is huge and beautiful! You have a great view of the Gulf from the pool. I enjoy swimming laps and the pool was a perfect size to get a good workout. My husband and son really enjoyed the tennis courts. They are really nice courts and very close to the house! The beds are very comfortable. The home is beautifully decorated. Andy is awesome to work with! He thinks of everything and provides you with all the information you need to make sure you have a wonderful vacation! We will definitely stay here again! Great location---enjoyed biking to the beach or driving a short distance.

This place is absolute paradise! The house is gorgeous, spacious, the area is extremely safe, and the pool is spectacular! The beaches and restaurants are both just around the corner and never crowded! I'll never stay in Destin or Panama City again! This place feels like my home away from home!

We loved this gated, upscale community    Aug 06, 2017

The home is just as advertised
- luxury! It has beautiful furniture, kitchen granite counter

tops, huge windows and doors and is very comfortable. The beds were soft, the towels

were soft, and the home was very clean!

The Cypress Dunes area is magnificent as well. Perfectly manicured grounds with the

greenest grass you will ever see, beautiful palm trees and well lit streets for evening

walking. We especially enjoyed the large grass green area where both my sons enjoyed playing


The beaches in this area of Florida are superb with their white sand and

clear,bluish-emerald waters The home and area exceeded our expectations in all areas.

Cypress Dunes has a great location close to shopping outlets, fabulous restaurants and deep-sea fishing.

Family friendly! Great to take walks, ride bikes, tennis courts (across the street)

Thanks for renting your home to us. It was the best vacation we have had and created

a lot of memories…..

Just recently returned from another great vacation at the Cypress Dunes home of Andy and Michele Glantz. I've had the most enjoyable vacations there for the past five years. I always remember the first time that I entered the house and was surprised by how large it was on the inside. It's so roomy and open, and decorated so beautifully (a lot of the art was created by Michele!). Yet it's such a comfortable house that I felt right at home. The three bedrooms, each with private bathroom, offer plenty of room for our group of family and friends. The kitchen has everything we need to prepare meals. (Love the granite counter tops.) Grocery and other shopping is a short drive away, but if you don't feel like cooking, there are several restaurants close by. Andy is happy to recommend his favorites and has provided a binder in the home with lots of information about the area. In addition he's just a phone call away if you have any questions. He and Michele sincerely want you to have the best time ever on your vacation. There's quite a lot to do right there in the neighborhood (gated community - really nice). The club house offers an infinity pool with an incredible view, a relaxing heated jacuzzi, and a work-out room. The streets in the neighborhood are quiet, so relaxing walks and early morning runs are easy and safe. There are tennis courts and the exotic looking Cypress Head Pond with a board walk that allows you to wander through it. So much fun! Then, of course, there's the white sand beach and gorgeous gulf water. You can't beat it anywhere. Beach access is a very short drive away. It's even close enough to easily ride there by bike. But one of my favorite things to do is just sit in one of the fish shaped adirondack chairs on the front porch with a morning cup of coffee and listen to the gentle breeze rustling the fronds of the palm tree in the front yard. Heaven!

We had a great stay in 30a in Cypress Dunes. Beautiful home easily accommodated our family and Grandparents. Big living space and kitchen made cooking and meals easy. The screened back porch gave extra space for eating dinner one evening when had another family over to eat. Beautiful pool in neighborhood. Quick access to beaches and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. Andy was a great host, always available for questions and took the time to send us info about the area. Great to work with. Highly recommend this property!

We had the opportunity to stay at Mr. and Mrs. Glantzent home. Absolutely gorgeous home. They went over board on making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Mr. Glantzent sent me many brochures to prep lab my trip and get ideas to my home before I arrived. Everything you need is on site. About 5 mins from Sand Destin. Close to beaches, that are beautiful. Very quite friendly neighborhood. The pool is breathtaking. This was a well spent trip with lots of memories. Mr. Glantz made it even better with his his hospitality. Thank you for welcoming my family and myself. We will definitely be back!!
