Minimum age limit for renters: 25 or older. Smoking not allowed. We impose a $150.00 smoking clean-up fee. Limited accessibility for wheelchairs: The condo is a first floor unit, meaning that it is wheelchair accessible, but has no tub access....moreless

Our condo is directly across from the beach....just steps away. There is no view, however, of the ocean from our condo windows. Our condo is located directly in front of the pool. Again, you are steps from the beach and will not be disappointed. If you are looking for an ocean view condo, there are several units in Gulfview that face the ocean, so happy looking. We just want you to be happy, if that is a key priority for you....moreless

This family run business is designed with one thing in mind, pleasing our guests and providing them with the utmost in customer service, amenities, and comfort. Our goal is simple. Make your vacation so enjoyable that you will want to come back next year.
We wanted to buy a condo with very specific characteristics and Blue Paradise fit all those characteristics. We loved the fact that this was a corner first level unit steps away from the beach. That is the most appealing aspect of this location. We love being on the corner because you have a little more condo space and more windows. We love Scenic Gulf Drive...it parallels the beach, has walking trails and a warm and inviting feel. But the most important aspect of selecting this condo had to do with its location...it is directly across from the emerald coast and the beach is simple beautiful. It's breathtaking.
