    Had a great time together! Few minor setbacks but having a property manager was awesome and she was very attentive. This was also my 50th birthday celebration and property manager Beth sent over a birthday surprise filled with goodies. Very unexpected and very much thoughtful and appreciated! We’ve rented from a lot of companies and this is the first one I’ve had someone to check in on us and that we could report to , which was very convenient! The hot tub area with the television was awesome! Kids loved the pirate ship play area ! That was a big plus ! We enjoyed our stay at Dunn Dreamin !

    We had an amazing time at this property! The house was perfect for our family of 5 and located close to all the attractions but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet. Everything in the house was clean & well taken care of! The bottom level was perfect for dinner & evenings in the hot tub! Definitely recommend staying at Dunn Dreamin!

  • Off the beaten path


    Nice property. You can walk to the dunes, which has a few nice trails, and the bay waterfront which has a small beach. However, having to drive everywhere else became somewhat burdensome (ocean, stores, mini golf, etc.. Property has a nice layout. A lot of mosquitoes by jacuzzi, grill was suspect, and outdoor tv didn’t work…

  • Everything you would get from a hotel, but even better because it's a whole house.


    This booking came with everything we could have needed for a stay during a rainy week. We had a place to dry off between our adventures and our teenagers loved the hot tub (while their mom loved having instructions for how to use one properly).

    The beds were all comfortable and bathrooms even came with hotel style soaps/shampoo/ lotion.

    There was a sample of coffee selections and any dish or glass you could need. The pirate play set was a hit, and we even took some family photos on it.

    The walk to the sand dunes was manageable and it was a quick drive to grab groceries or a bite to eat.

    The house was conveniently located to Pirates Cove and was fully stocked wich allowed us to be able to make lunches for the fishing trips and cooking light meals once we returned.
