A perfectly private beach picnic or totally deluxe family vacation. Accommodating 14 guests in 5-star comfort & then some, our Casa La Duna Mansion is palatial in size & standard. With its own theater room, pool table & new private heated pool, it's perfect for everyone. With its own elevator, it's perfect for those with mobility problems. <br/><br/>Its private location at the end of a cul-de-sac allows you to enjoy ocean views and sprawling balcony space - over 2,000 square feet of outdoor living on 3 floors - all the more. Reminiscent of old-world plantation balconies, you get sweeping views and constant sunshine. In design, thi...s home recalls a charming Bahamian plantation mansion. In features - a contender for MTV's Cribs. And in ocean-front comfort? Unrivaled. <br/><br/>Your privacy is guaranteed while staying here. The home is tucked discretely at the end of a cul-de-sac. The front of the house itself is almost completely hidden behind a wall of palm trees. This makes the view at the back all the more your secret. Over 6,000 sq. ft of living space is improved with a further 2,000 sq. ft of sprawling balconies on three floors. Enjoy sunrise across the ocean, as seen from one of many comfortable spots on various balconies. <br/><br/>The main patio - the likes of which you've seen on the cover of Architectural Digest - makes an ideal entertaining space. There's tons of room and lots of patio furniture to rearrange to your liking. Best of all (as of March 1, 2012), there is a brand new private heated pool to swim in! <br/><br/>As a perfect house for a group, there's a great variety of living space inside and out. The grand foyer and great room both open to the floor above - soaring ceilings, with spotless tile and quality hardwood floors. This sleek home is custom from top to bottom, with tons of built-ins: bookshelves, flat-screen TVs and a fireplace. The living areas are dotted with Chinese antiques and local accessories - an inviting, eclectic home. <br/><br/>Just a few of the many treats to be discovered: <br/><br/>The best sectional sofa you've ever seen: very wide, very long with two in-built chaises. Non-stop entertainment: a pool table, wet bar and a massive home theater room. A gourmet kitchen with a subzero refrigerator, 29" Thermidor grill with double oven and Asko dishwasher, huge center island and adjoining dining room. 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. Sensational views of the Atlantic Ocean: sunrises galore! For sun and sand, just step out the door to the adjacent private beach. <br/><br/>Upstairs, you'll enjoy sweeping views of the water from the interior and exterior balconies. Four bedrooms and four full bathrooms are up on this level as well as two balconies. It's a nice, open floor plan. There are several rooms so comfortable for the children to sleep, watch TV, read or just horse around. The best is yet to come on the third floor, find your stunning master suite and an unending ocean view that's all yours. If nonstop views from your king bed don't tempt, vaulted ceilings and master bathroom suite with jacuzzi bath tub will. A few nights in this master suite and you'll be dragged home kicking and screaming. <br/><br/>As of April 2013, the owners have updated the home with a new sleeper sofa, new 1st level 6th bedroom with 2 queen beds, entertainment center with HDTV and a daybed. This room will be perfect for kids. The 1st floor also includes a pool table, wet bar and a new queen sleeper sofa.<br/><br/>When venturing out, simply step from the property grounds onto the adjacent beach walkover to the beach. We also manage the beachfront house next door, Heaven on Earth. Perfect for families traveling together.
Additional amenities include: golf, washer / dryer, beach, boating, fishing, biking.Read more
We were very pleased with the Casa la Duna. We had 24 people ranging age 6 mos to 71. This was the first time I've rented a house for this many people, and I must say, it turned out great. The house was very clean upon arrival and true to the photos, except bedroom #5 was not a queen, it was a twin trundle. The home theater room was huge, so we moved a couple of kids into the home theater room. It had 6.5 baths, not 5.5. The house was very well stocked, unlike other reviewers comments. It took a while to find things, but it was complete. Not quality stuff, but complete. There were no beach towels. There were tons of extra sheets, and plenty of bath towels to go around. I think all the beds were pretty good quality except for the twin trundle in bedroom #5. The beach wasn't nearly as far as the photo showed, and all that tall grass provided lots of entertainment for the kids. Any animals that came out of there were huge. My kids did a lot of boogie boarding on the beach. A bit rocky, but you can find areas without rocks. Bring swim shirts and shoes. No snorkeling though, because the water wasn't clear. The pool was great, especially for the 8 and under group. Some days they would be in there for many hours.
Pros: Great location! Great House! Big enough for the entire family. Location was incredible. Walk over the dunes to the ocean. Quiet and secure location. Not one problem with facilities or equipment working properly. Everything worked great and we had a wonderful stay. Dishes and glassware were fine and there was a sufficient amount for our large family.
Our family stayed at this property for a week and it was very nice. Overall, the property requires a thorough examination of a handyman's talents to fix some general functions (i.e. locks) throughout the house.
I put my brother and his family in this house while I was next door. They loved the house and had a wonderful time there. The only negative comments I heard were that there were lots of dead love bugs in all the rooms upon arrival, the twin beds were rock hard and the ice maker didn't work...nothing that they couldn't put up with.
We stayed @ the Ocean Ridge home, which was absolutely beautiful. It had everything you could want. There were 14 of us-we had plenty of room, where we could all be together, yet if you wanted some privacy, you had that too. Just a short walk over the berm to the beach, which was amazing. If we had any questions, we called Ramona, who is absolutely wonderful. She answered any questions that we had (places to eat, etc.)We celebrated our dad's 83rd birthday, which was on Father's day & the next day deep sea fishing was on the agenda-with much success!!Everyone is still talking about this trip! We all loved the location & home. Plus we had massages @ Cinnamon Beach. Thank you Steve for such an amazingly wonderful time. You gave so much more than promised. And the grown grandkids took 80 yr old grandma shopping @ the outlet stores that you recommended. She loved it. My sister & I enjoyed walking along the beach with our parents. Can't thank you enough. We will recommend you to our friends and next time will plan another vacation with Vrp---thanks again--Martha
