When anxious 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 rhythm 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.
*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 :). www.HomeAway.com property 366005.

'Blue Tide' 2B, in Seacrest, FL, is a beautifully furnished condo with 3 bedrooms (one being the loft), 3 full baths, 2 balconies overlooking the amazing Gulf of Mexico, very spacious with 1850 sq. feet of living space that is Gulf front. The beaches have been voted as one of best "America of America". YOU CAN WALK RIGHT OFF THE FAMILY ROOM BALCONY STEPS TO THE STEPS TO THE INCREDIBLE GULF - this is fairly unique and much appreciated by guests. Blue Tide is located on Scenic Highway 30A, 2 miles from Rosemary Beach and a few miles east of Watercolor, Seagrove, and Seaside. 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 rolling tides of the Gulf from one of your balconies. In the Fall and early spring the sunsets over the water can be incredible. The condo design is such that the sun never comes directly into the condo, no one can see in, so you never need to close the drapes. You can have wonderful Gulf views all day long from the master, kitchen, dining area, family room and the 2 balconies.
The condo is large, comfortable and after a couple of days, you will feel like you are home. The condo has 2 large bedrooms with comfortable king size beds and full baths attached. There is a loft with 2 single beds, 3 full baths. The loft is semi-private with stairs off the upstairs hallway and does not have one of the condo's 3 full baths attached. It is ideal for kids and teenagers and maybe young single adults. Probably not ideal for couples. 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. The condo has wireless internet service.
The condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen (you can save a lot of $$$ by eating in - while watching and listening to the rolling waves of 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.
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!!
'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

'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

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.
