Property description

'When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with it's great wide sounds, cleanses me with it's noise, and imposes a rythym upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused'. Rainer Maria Rilke

'I really don't know why all of us are committed to the sea, except, I think it is because we all came from the sea. And, it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that is in the ocean. Therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And, when we go back to the sea, whether to sail or to watch it, we are going back to wince we came'. As stated by an iconic former US President.

* NEW FOR 2016 - March 1 - October 31 - 1 UMBRELLA AND 2 BEACH CHAIRS SET UP DAILY IS INCLUDED IN WEEKLY RENTAL *

*If your week is booked, please check out my other similar condo in the same small 18 unit complex (5 are not rentals). It is equally as nice and I think both are nicer than the pictures :). VRBO 30536 or HomeAway 366005.

'Blue Tide' 2B is a beautifully furnished condo with 3 bedrooms (one being the loft), 3 full baths, 2 balconies overlooking the Gulf, very spacious with 1800+ sq. feet of living space that directly overlooks the Gulf. You can walk off the family room balcony to the steps leading to the georgeous beach. Located on Scenic Highway 30A, 2 miles from Rosemary Beach and a few miles east of Watercolor, Seagrove, and Seaside beaches. It offers a very light, fun and relaxing beachy feel. You will definitely feel like you are on vacation. It is also located on a scenic 17 mile bike trail. Bikes can be easily rented and delivered to the condo.

Enjoy the Georgeous panoramic views to the east and west from the 2 private balconies of the white sugar sand beach and sparkling emerald green water. It is truly breathtaking. There is nothing more beautiful and relaxing than winding up a day on the beach, shopping or site-seeing by watching the incredible scene of the sun setting over the water. You won't want to miss it a single day. The condo design is such that the sun is in front of you going over the water, but never directly into the condo, so you will never need to close the shades. Sun up to sun set you can watch and enjoy the beauty of the ocean. Even at night, there is privacy and no one can see into the condo.

There is a private pool on-site. Large bedrooms with a king size bed in the master and in the 2nd large bedroom and 2 singles in the loft (private with separate stairs), 3 full baths. There is also a queen size pull out sofa bed in the family room. The family room has an LED TV, DVD, VCR and CD player. TV's are also in the master bedroom, 2nd and 3rd bedroom/loft. All with cable. Master bathroom has a separate vanity and sink area outside of the bathroom/vanity and shower. Free long distance and local phone service(within the US only). It also has wireless internet service. There are family and children's DVD's to choose from to watch.

The condo comes with a fully equiped kitchen (you can save a lot of $$$ by eating in - while watching and listening to the ocean :)) with a good sized breakfast bar, 2 bar chairs and a large dining area with a table that will easily sit 6. Linens, towels and a full size washer and dryer are provided. There is a wet bar and wood burning fireplace. Two hundred linear feet of beautiful private beach. There are only 18 condos in this quaint, quiet, family friendly community and 5 are not rentals. The sunsets are spectacular. Fantastic atmosphere for a wonderful family vacation that will be remembered and treasured. Close to Watercolor, Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Seaside and just down HWY 98 Destin and Panama City, many great restaurants, shopping, 17 miles of flat bike trails, tennis, great golf courses, many entertaining sites.
Wifi and free long distance in the US.

****NO SMOKING****
There are 2 grills out front near the parking entrance.

QUOTES FROM RECENT GUESTS:

We want to thank you for the wonderful week we had at your condo. It was just as you described and then some. It was very clean and well maintained. My husband and I love the large master bedroom and we kept the sliders open a bit each night to listen to the waves rolling in. Very relaxing. My favorite part was getting up early with a cup of coffee and sitting on the porch of the master bedroom, reading a book, while listening to the waves and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. And my husband loved the huge tiled shower with the rain head.
It was great to be able to walk right off the living room, down some steps and be right on the beach. We could even watch the kids play at the beach while sitting on the living room porch. And your beaches are great.
Our kids keep talking how they want to go back and that they loved this vacation and the beach house because it was so relaxing.
Thanks you Brad for sharing your vacation home with us. We loved it!!
Betsy, MI

'THANY YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU...for a WONDERFUL stay yet again! We had beautiful weather, your work you did on the condo is fabulous and all in all we had a great week. All that said we would LOVE to reserve the condo again next year for the same week. Thanks you again. Emma 6/13

Linda, LA 6/2013

'We had a fantastic time. You have a fantastic condo and we absolutely enjoyed our time there. We will be back. Thanks again.' Anne, LA

'We have stayed at the Blue Tide 3 times and hope to continue to rent here every chance we get. The condo has everything you need for a relaxing trip to the beach. It is spacious, clean and most importantly, it is steps away from the beach with great views of the ocean. All in all, it is our favorite vacation spot and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation surrounded by the best of Florida. M.M. TN

'We had such a wonderful time. Your condo is absolutely perfect. I can't think of one thing I would do differently to your condo. It is perfect in every way.' Sara, GA

'We arrived yesterday and are thrilled. The best part is walking into the kitchen and seeing the spectacular view. I can't imagine how you are ever able to leave. We will be sure to tell everyone about your lovely home.' Anna, ARK

Recent email sent to me from a first time guest:
"Had been over 10 years since our family vacationed together having 2 grown children (our son recently spent time deployed to Afghanistan with the Army), plus our daughter and son-in-law with a 2 year old little girl. Was way past time for a beach trip...
Blue Tide 2B is everything you could hope for and more...mere steps from the beautiful Gulf.
Morning coffee and evening cocktails spent on balconies watching dolphins daily and a loggerhead sea turtle coming right up to the Dunes at eth Blue Tide to build and lay her nest - was thrilling!
You can tell Brad takes pride in this unit. Updates are noticeable, especially the rain shower in the master bath. I wanted to bring this home with us...comfortable, spacious, clean and well stocked - bring your groceries and you will be set for a week (or 2). Whether staying in or exploring there is plenty of good dining choices, boat rides, fishing, shopping to serve anyone's wishes.
Can't wait to visit again... Blue Tide 2B (or 7B) will be where we make reservations.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: I am from Atlanta and we love the beach and go whenever one of my condos is not rented. Both condos have been renting for about 40 weeks each year, so I have to live a bit vicariously through the families that get the prime time. Knowing families are enjoying the condos and having a great time makes my day and week. Every time we go back it is like the first time for us. We absolutely love it!

Why Blue Tide:
A couple of things stand out about my property - you can walk right off the family room balcony to the steps to the beach (no elevators or going out front and around) - the sun never comes directly into the condo so the shades don't ever need to be closed giving you beautifull views of the gulf all day from the master, family room, dining area and kitchen - it is large, about 1830 sq. feet so everyone has plenty of room - it is quiet and no one can see into the condo plus it has the 2 balconies with breathtaking views that I think would compare to the best anywhere. The gulf of Mexico with the blue waters and sugar white sand are breathtaking and the easy access to great local resturants and shopping and biking trail make this area very special and a fun place to vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
First of all, when you walk in the door and see the view of the gulf it is a true ahhhh! moment. The decor of the condo is light colors and very beachy with upscale furnishings. You will know you are at the beach and on vacation. We love listening to the rolling waves of the ocean all day and the evening. The views from the 2 balconies are spectacular. Watching the dolphins swim by (usually in the morning and the evening) is fun and our favorite thing is to watch the sunset each evening. Hanging out on the sand or the grassy area in the evening is so much more relaxing and fun than going out to one of the great restaurants. It is also great to be able to walk off the family room balcony to the steps to the ocean rather than go through hall ways or elevators. We also enjoy the many great restaurants in the area and places to see. Many families love the 17 mile bike trail to explore 30-A - great family fun.
