Don’t let the address scare you away, because this custom cottage on Spooky Lane is about as inviting as it gets. Located in Dune Crossing, this home is part of a newly constructed community on scenic Route 30A. And it shows. Some might even say it...shows off. Built by the highly regarded Cogent Building Group, this high-end home offers three exquisite floors of bright colors, open spaces, and porches at every turn. So do give yourself plenty of time to enjoy every nook and cranny, not only on the lot itself, but all that is waiting for you just a few steps from your door.

But let’s head inside first. Yes, that’s an elevator you immediately see in front of you. Because from the second you enter this 5-bedroom, 5.5 bath home, it’s all about luxury. And that’s just one of the many luxuries you can expect once your family vacation begins. Your guests will enjoy relaxing in the bright and breezy floor plan, the balconies with sweeping views, and the chefs of your bunch will marvel at the spacious modern kitchen and outdoor dining areas. Just make sure the kids wait a half an hour before jumping in that tempting private pool.

Now, about that pool. The backyard patio in which it sits can make you feel like you’re on a separate vacation all together. A rarity for the area, think of it as a family friendly playground right in your own backyard. With plenty of room for groups of all sizes to lounge in the sun and the shade, the outdoor amenities include an outdoor grilling area, all-weather couches that sit in front of a flatscreen TV, and lush greenery to ensure your privacy. You may even wonder why you would ever need to leave.

But eventually, it will be time to explore so more. You’ll want to head down to the beautiful beaches of course. Access is just steps away to the blue skies and green waters of the Gulf, and must be seen to be believed. But if you can, don’t just confine yourself to these pristine sands.You’re also just a few minutes away from Gulf Place’s quirky shops, unique art galleries, and world-class restaurants. Scheduling your stay around one of the area’s many popular festivals? Chances are, you’re close to that too. If you’re looking for a brilliantly designed, custom-built home that’s in the perfect location along the Emerald Coast, welcome to Bewitching Dunes.

The home was excellent and comfortable. We enjoyed pool/outdoor living area. Short walk to beach across 30A. Issues with elevator upon arrival, but technician arrived and took care of it. I offer kudos to property management team for their support and responsiveness during our stay.

This house is absolutely amazing! It is better than the pictures. For those who cook, the kitchen is amazing. They even have an ice maker, which was great for going to the beach with a cooler. The layout of the house is great. All of the rooms are spacious and comfortable. We had a hard time choosing which room to stay in. The bunk room was wonderful. Even in the heat, we found ourselves watching the tv under the covered patio by the pool. You will love the pool! The elevator was great for groceries and luggage. The walk to the beach was less than 5 minutes, even with a cart full of beach gear. It is a straight shot across the street to the water. We enjoyed being right on 30a, as it was convenient to everything. We did not experience one problem with this rental or the Invited Home team. They even stopped by and left us laundry detergent in the garage and a very nice handwritten note. The only thing you will wish is that you had another week to stay in this house. We did not want to leave! I could go on and on about this house, but you truly have to rent it and experience it yourself. You will not regret it!!
