Dune Allen, nestled in between Destin and Seaside, is the perfect vacation spot for nature lovers. Home to three freshwater, coastal dune lakes as well as Topsail Hill State Park, Dune Allen provide visitors with plenty of off-beach adventure options, including hiking, biking, and paddle boarding. Of course, sweeping views of the Gulf Of Mexico are pretty standard throughout the community, and that is certainly true of the luxurious, five bedroom Gulf Front Vacation home, Vista Bella del Mar.
This 4,275 square foot, Mediterranean style home provides panoramic views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Dune Allen’s rare Oyster Lake. The open... and inviting floor plan is designed for entertaining- whether that be an elegant cocktail party for twenty, or an intimate, beachfront brunch for six. As you walk into the beautifully tiled foyer, you will immediately feel relaxed. This well designed home has plenty of storage space, towel racks, and cubbies so you can keep your sandy beach supplies in one place. It also boasts a small outdoor shower. Immediately off the foyer is a queen bedroom, complete with a private bathroom and small patio.
Upstairs, you are greeted by large, spacious kitchen, equipped with top of the line appliances, including a warming draw, a wine rack, and plenty of counter space. The kitchen has a small breakfast nook as well as seating at the bar. The elegant dining room table seats eight. The large living room is focused on the expansive view of the beach, as well as the large flat screen television. The sofa doubles as additional sleeping space. There is also a separate conversation nook, off to the side. The living room opens to a large balcony, which offers additional seating. The second floor is also home to a tropically inspired Queen bedroom, offering a view of the beach and a small, private balcony.
The third floor Master Suite is designed for luxury and relaxation and has a spectacular water view. The rich furnishings give the room a sophisticated feel. The spa- inspired bathroom includes a large Jacuzzi tub, a separate standalone shower, complete with beautiful stonework, two independent vanities and a large dressing room. The third floor is also houses a Queen bedroom, with a small balcony and a beach view and “children’s” room, furnished with two sets of bunk beds, bean bag chairs, and a flat screen television. These two bedrooms share a bathroom.
The top floor offers views that will take your breath away; complete with a small sitting room, flat screen television, wet bar, and a queen sleeper sofa. You will take advantage of the large balcony, which offers a view of both the beach and the lake. Vista Bella del Mar means “Beautiful View of the Sea” and this luxurious home delivers that from every room.

This property is simply beautiful, beach front, excellent views. I held a wedding at the property, unfortunately it rained, but the house is sooo gorgeous that we were able to hold the wedding within the home and the beach served as a beautiful backdrop. You won't be disappointed with this property!
