Many visitors who stay at one of our gracious Ocean Reef Resorts vacation rental properties come down for a big wonderful reunion at the beach with their families and close friends. However, big homes are sometimes hard to find. We are pleased to let you know that Ocean Reef now offers two new vacation rental homes with eight bedrooms! They both include fun, lavish creature comforts. One of them sleeps twenty-four fortunate guests while the other accommodates thirty. Our visiting guests have distinct preferences regarding locations related to residing at one of the serene, idyllic coastal villages along Scenic 30A or nearer to "happening" Destin. Fortunately, one of these two colossal vacation homes is located next to Destin in Miramar Beach, and the other is in South Walton's Dune Allen Beach. Here is a brief look at each property so you may choose your own favorite vacation setting for a magical and memorable reunion by the shore.
8 Bedrooms / 9 Full Baths 1 Half Bath / 30 Guests
Hypnautic is a stylish, contemporary 8-bedroom Florida vacation home with the ability to accommodate thirty fortunate beach-going guests on separate levels - as it stands three stories tall.

It includes convenient bathroom facilities with outdoor showers and is anchored at one end by the colorful Pompano Joe's Restaurant. They serve savory appetizers, gumbo, sandwiches, seafood, gulf-caught fish, and craft cocktails.

Dune Allen Beach is a small residential community that serves as the western gateway to the gorgeous privileged world of Scenic 30A. It's sandwiched beside the beach between Oyster Lake, Allen Lake, and Stalworth Lake, next to the Topsail Hill forest preserve. These coastal dune lake treasures are found hardly anywhere else on earth. They support an exotic habitat with an abundant array of fish and wildlife due to their mix of artisan spring-fed and salted waters created by tributaries connecting to the gulf. Two more coastal dune lakes are nearby at The Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. It spans 1,640 forested acres that border the western edge of Dune Allen and includes three miles of uncrowded beach bordered by towering dunes. This vast ancient protected forest has a captivating, almost primeval look and provides a unique setting for fun outdoor adventures. Nature trails meander through the expansive woodlands around Campbell and Morris Lakes. Here you may view a large amount of waterfowl and wildlife around you while catching some fish.
Surprisingly enough, this seemingly remote locale is minutes away from popular restaurants, friendly bars with live music, grocery stores, liquor wine shops, and shopping adventures. The highly acclaimed Santa Rosa Beach village center of Gulf Place is less than five minutes away. It includes restaurants with friendly bars, a liquor wine outlet, a coffee shop, boutiques, specialty shops, and galleries. An outdoor amphitheater lined with palms in its center plays host to concerts, a variety of art shows, and fun festivals that are held there throughout the year.
