Sounds of Summer

Rated Excellent on FlipKey

4.8 average rating
based on 13 reviews

Long work days often leave us with sounds of honking horns, keyboard clicks and sighs of frustration clouding our brains. Isn’t it time to tune in to the “Sounds of Summer”? This South Walton vacation rental replaces ringing phones and irritated voices with the hypnotic tones of waves cascading onto the shore, dune grasses rustling in the breeze and most importantly sighs of contentment all around. This ‘home away from home’ was completely remodeled with all new stainless steel appliances, granite counters throughout, unique walnut-plank tile floors and a private boardwalk bordering the dunes which leads you to your beach access at Dune Allen Public area which conveniently offers restrooms and showers.

Carefully coordinated to blend with the soothing shades and textures that characterize our brilliant Gulf coast, Sounds of Summer offers a beach chic interior complete with sand colored walls, reclaimed wood tables and four bedrooms each with their own particular coastal flare. The kitchen views Allen Lake and the beach which makes cooking oh so enjoyable when complimented by shiny fixtures and a floor plan that opens to dining for eight.

Guests of the northern rooms will be treated to views of the rare phenomenon known as a ‘dune lake’…. while vistas of the aquamarine Gulf of Mexico delight guests in the southern chambers.  Features like a master suite set including a giant open walk-in shower; a full washer and dryer; a colorful bunk room equipped with games and books; a waterfront deck with outdoor dining; and designer furnishings harmonize to create the ideal Destin vacation symphony.

Sounds of Summer not only revels in a beachfront location, it’s very close to fantastic golf, dining and shopping experiences. Set along scenic highway 30A, the wildly popular Stinkys Fish Camp is just across the street……..Gulf Place Town Center is within walking distance to the east while historic Seaside is just a few miles beyond.


WINTER MONTHLY rate available in December, January & February only.  


During Spring and Summer this home requires a 7-night, Saturday to Saturday stay. Any other time we require a 4-night minimum stay.

Awesome Vacation!!

  5 of 5 stars

The Sounds of Summer was just what our family needed for our vacation. The location was great. The house itself was very nicely laid out and the kitchen was very well supplied with everything we needed. The views from the deck and even from sitting at the kitchen table were amazing. Thank you!!!

Perfect Beach Cottage

  5 of 5 stars

We LOVED staying in Sounds of Summer. The unit is so well decorated, with modern appliances and a great view of the sunset! The 30a location is ideal, and it's a quick walk down to the beach or right across the street to Stinky's. . We had a great time and so did our kids!

Dream home

“I loved your house. Me and my friends just had a super time, and I would copy it for my dream home. One kitchen, dining and living with bedrooms off of it!! I don't think I took any pictures however. We were busy walking on the beach and biking!”

Excellent home! This house everything that we could have ever needed plus more! It was decorated beautifully and stocked perfectly. We walked to the beach everyday and came back and cooked our meals in the house and back to the beach we went! Beautiful sand, beautiful beaches, beautiful water. This house provided a lovely place for our family to make memories and to relax and escape reality for a short while. We will be back!

Couldn't Have Been Better!

  5 of 5 stars

Loved this house and our stay. Beautifully decorated and maintained; steps from the beach. Either end of 30A can be hectic; this place is right in the middle - very peaceful and calm and exactly what we were looking for. Stinky's right across the street with awesome fresh fish and a wide variety of food options was an added plus. I can't imagine going anywhere else on our next visit. Thank you!

Perfect trip

They house was beautiful! We had an amazing vacation and would definitely book another trip. This was our first time to Santa Rosa Beach and it was a perfect trip. The house was very clean and welcoming. The open floor plan was perfect for a family vacation!

Absolutely Loved Staying at Sounds of Summer

  5 of 5 stars

We stayed at this spectacular home for a week with my sister and her family. This was our first time staying in the 30-A area and we loved it! Not exactly total seclusion, but it was off the beaten tourist path. The home is gorgeous.....very upscale and you can tell the owners and the management company take great pains to keep it clean and well maintained. It had a stunning view of the Gulf and just a short walk to the beach. Plus it was right across from Stinky's Fish Camp.....despite the name, one of the best restaurants we've ever eaten at! We would definitely stay here again!

Tranquility on the Beach!

  5 of 5 stars

This was just what my family needed! This beautiful beach house is in a very low-key area without all the noise and traffic. This gave my family a chance to really enjoy each other's company without all the distractions. And the home is so lovely! It's very nicely decorated with lots of white and natural feels very cottage like, but very spacious. it was so nice to sit out on the back deck and watch the waves roll in while enjoying a nice breeze. It's the best of both can actually walk to the market and several restaurants, but there's not a high rise in sight. Perfect for families looking for a quiet time but still be close to civilization. We can't wait to go back!
