Property description

Looking for that perfect place for your August vacation? Now's the time to start planning, and Carl's Cabana is the perfect spot. Check out all of our reviews, both the online by and those that were hand written by guests in the guest book we leave in the unit. You will find those in the section 'Guest Book Comments From Owner' at the end of this description section. VRBO began separating them out a while back, so check out both review sections to get the full picture.

Yahoo Travel named Santa Rosa Beach/Blue Mountain Beach as one of the 10 best beach destinations in the world for 2011 and Carl’s Cabana is only footsteps away! The untainted, sugar white sands of Blue Mountain Beach is one of only eight beaches in all of Walton County with a manned lifeguard station (during season) to add to your peace of mind.

Then there is CARL’S CABANA where you can relax, let your hair down and allow the cares of the world be carried off in the sea breezes. We have worked hard to make Carl's Cabana into a true home away from home. Stone floors and counter tops as well as original art work are featured throughout. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has new furnishings and deluxe 400+ count bed linens and plenty of fluffy towels for real sized people. There is wireless internet and HBO is featured on all TVs. The master suite has a king bed and a 27' flat screen HD TV w/DVD and an iHome clock stereo for your favorite tunes. The second bedroom has both a full and a queen bed and its own bath with an oversized whirlpool bath with shower. The living room has a sofa bed (queen), a 42' flat screen HD TV w/DVD as well as a stereo with mp3 connections. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could want. The large, private sunset view terrace is perfect for catching some rays or star gazing the night away. The deck is fully furnished with a gas grill, large dining table and warm sea breezes.

Located on Blue Mountain Rd., SOUTH of 30a, and directly across from beautiful Blue Mountain Beach, it is a perfect place for either a romantic getaway or a trip to the beach with family or friends. It is one of the rare spots that has not been overrun with commercialization located on a quiet street (with no high-rises) and a beach that's never crowded, even during Spring Break! Yet Carl’s Cabana is just only minutes from fine dining, shopping and renown golf . Within easy walking distance, there are many local restaurants, shops and services who love to cater to our guests. Southwest Airlines' service available through the Panama City International Airport (just 30 min. away) makes life even easier. But best of all, the BEACH is heaven on earth!

Our guests enjoy exclusive membership privileges to enjoy the extra large pool and workout amenities at the nearby Blue Mountain Beach Club. Since membership to the Beach Club is restricted, the pool and exercise room are never crowded.

Everything is ready and waiting for you to feel like you have come home and have found your Slice of Paradise! Please feel free to inquire through this site or call me directly or drop us a direct email at cdreifuss@aol or call me at 615-. Whatever works for you, we aim to please.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My wife, Beth, and I live in Nashville, TN where I work in commercial real estate and Beth is an attorney. Now that we are empty nesters, we love to travel. However, for getting away and relaxing there is no place better on earth than Carl's Cabana and Blue Mountain Beach! We love going to the beach and Blue Mountain really was a unique find. It is our perfect place to kickback, relax and spend quality time with each other and our family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Mirasol:
Why? It is very simple, it was the area. Blue Mountain Beach still retains that small seaside atmosphere. It's quiet, a mix of private homes and condos. There are small family run business around us (we adore the ice cream shop). Carl's Cabana is a townhouse in a complex of only 8 units. And the parking is directly beside the front door. It's free of all the daily stress, just what a vacation should be.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
I enjoy getting up early, grabbing a mug of coffee and going out for a walk along Blue Mountain Rd. It's always free of traffic and you get to meet your neighbors. Everyone is very friendly. I might walk down Blue Mountain Rd. and then go down to the beach and walk back on the sand. I also love to bike and the area is very bike friendly with bike lanes and bike paths everywhere. Beth loves to head down to the beach with a good book and just read. The beach never gets crowded and the pictures here are of the beach at our beach entrance. You can enjoy the beach without being overrun. There are fisherman going after pompano and others gather crab at sunset. In the evening there is plenty of nightlife just a short distance away. Great locally owned restaurants to satisfy every taste and budget. For those who want to eat in, there is a Publix just a short distance away or great take out pizza at the local Irish Pub. I know but really it is the best!. Want more nightlife or shopping? Then venture into Destin and enjoy the outlet mall and the high end shops at The Grand Boulevard. Or take in an outdoor movie at Seaside, just minutes down 30A. We just love everything about the area and Beth has really gone overboard to create a special comfortable cocoon with everything that we need. Our guests get to enjoy Carl's Cabana, just like we keep our own home far above the standard vacation rentals.
