Private Dune Lake access, paddleboards, Beach ♡

Sip a hot coffee on the deck and watch the sun rise over the water. Peek over the rail and see if you can spot a heron enjoying breakfast just yards away. There are stunning water views of Oyster Lake and the Gulf. This property has 40 windows, and glows during the day, with fantastic views of the Gulf and the lake. Once awake, choose your own adventure… walk to world-class white quartz sandy beaches, or grab one of our complementary paddleboards and explore Oyster Lake! Fishing is allowed as well. 

The living room and kitchen wide open with windows on all sides, providing plenty of sunlight for board games and cooking. There is 1G WIFI and single-remote Roku TVs. No need to enter passwords, we include complementary accounts for Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+. Your kids can watch Disney+ while you enjoy a beverage on the deck! 

30A is known for being classy and swanky... No hustle and bustle like you'd find at crowded Destin or Panama City. We will provide you with everything to need to find the best restaurants and attractions, catered towards both children and adults! Leave everything to us.

The place was in close proximity to the beach and popular restaurants/activities. His place was clean and had amenities above and beyond your basic needs

Brian’s communication was great throughout the stay.  Having the small Lake with the Kayaks available, was a hit for the kiddos.  Would stay here again.

Such a beautiful and conveniently located place to stay!    Aug 01, 2022

We were able to get to any store or other beach town we wanted within 15 minutes. We loved the beach/lake option, and the higher level rooms were great for looking out over both. Would recommend!

Our family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Brian's place!    Jun 01, 2022

The home was spacious enough to relax and the incredible beach and lake views were the perfect touch. The location is superb! You can literally walk anywhere from the home. We had a mix of toddlers, teens and mature adults and there was fun for all!!

I can't wait to come back! If you've come across this home and it's available. Book it now! You'll be glad you did. Thanks again, Brian!

The location of the house is super convenient. The lake in the back was very nice to have and was simply right across the street from the beach. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again!

I booked the Heron for my sisters bachelorette trip. It was absolutely perfect! Beautiful home, perfect location, and awesome hosts. If you’re thinking of booking this home, do it! The views are wonderful from the house and it’s so close to everything you need with a short walk to the beach. The host was great and went above and beyond.

Thanks for a great vacation!!    May 01, 2022

This house was the best of both worlds- the beach and the lake! The beach was just steps away and we really enjoyed sipping coffee watching the sunrise sitting right by the lake. The house was equipped with everything we needed! We loved the heron and would definitely stay there again in the future! Brian was a great host! We communicated throughout the week and he always responded to anything immediately. Truly the best week and the best place to be for Mother’s Day!

Great memories with family were thanks to the heron!    May 01, 2022

Communication with owner was exceptional. Brain provided several suggestions form different beach accesses, golf cart rentals and restaurants that was extremely helpful as it was our first time staying in Santa Rosa. TaCo30A was vey delicious! The home was very clean and in great condition. If we weren’t at the beach we were fishing in oyster lake right beside the home or cruising 30A. The home had plenty of space with 4bedrooms and 3bathroom. All beach necessities such as umbrellas, beach chairs, wagon, kids toys etc. were offered.
