'Unbelievable Views'

describe this 1600+ square foot beach-front retreat! Our Non-Smoking, Gulf-Front Condo is one of the closest structures to the water's edge as it was built before the newer coastal setback requirements. In other words, you're practically ON the beach! Don't settle for less! The actual beach walkover (stairs to beach) is within 10 feet of the condo (see picture below).

Unit 5A is located on the WEST END of the building.

The unit gives you the sensation of being on a cruise ship with the wonderful panoramic views that are only available from a gulf-front unit located on the end of the building which is located closer to the water than any other condo in the Blue Mountain Beach area. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Destin via the large side picture window while watching TV. It's also great for watching sunsets from the comfort of your sofa.

The master bedroom which is Gulf-front has a king bed with its own bath. The guest bedroom has a queen bed and a set of bunk beds. And there is a guest bath. The living area has a queen sleeper sofa. There is a TV in each bedroom as well as a TV in the living area. Both full baths are tiled with a tub/shower. There is a half bath on the main level.

The living, dining and kitchen areas have travertine tile. The kitchen has granite counter tops with stainless steel appliances.

The 'carport' (no cars allowed) can be used to park your bikes out of the rain.

FREE WIRELESS internet access provided.

FREE long distance calling provided.

Perfect beach front condo!

  • 5 of 5

The view here is absolutely amazing, and it is only steps to the water! The condo was very nice, and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The owners were very helpful and easy to work with. We will definitely be back!

Five Star Plus!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your condo. We did see some warm weather and enjoyed the spectacular views and ocean air. It was a lovely time for our family, children and grandchildren. We enjoyed many meals at the table, and prepared lots of seafood from Goatfeathers (a fresh seafood market just down the street; recommend the grouper and steamed shrimp). Further down the road Destin offers shopping, outlet malls, arcades, movies more beaches. At Blue Mountain Villa, you have privacy and seclusion and just steps away from the shore, no waiting for elevators, going thru lobbies, or driving to get to the beach. You are there, with all the comforts of home! The views from the decks and windows are awesome!

Pensacola, an hour or so away has the National Naval Aviation Museum to explore, well worth the drive.

Once again, thank you so much for making available, this most wonderful place that provided us so many happy memories once again.

Best on the Gulf!

  • 5 of 5

For the past 10 years we've been vacationing 1-2 times a year on the Gulf Coast and have been lucky enough to stay in this one or it's 'sister' below for most of those visits. Only once we missed out on getting any Blue Mountain Villas and regretted it. If you want great location, fantastic beach and ocean views, and well-maintained, cleaned, and equipped vacation location look no further. On top of that the owner is friendly and easy to work with. A new added value is the addition of exclusive beach chair and umbrella service (separate charge) from a company that has great personable service.

Girl's Week at the Beach- what a wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

I had stayed several times since 2006 but always in September. This October visit was just as wonderful- weather and water cooperated. The condo is just as terrific as ever: well stocked, clean, convenient, quiet, plenty of room. Love the new washer and dryer. You can't beat the views from the balconies- such beautiful sunsets/sunrises, dolphins, falling stars. Easy to walk to restaurants- particularly like Marie's and Johnny McTigue's. The Blue Mountain Beach Creamery is WAY too close :-)

The highlight of the trip was meeting the owner, Albert and Margo- what sweet people! I feel like I know them from past emails and it was terrific to finally see them face-to-face. They are easily reached by email or text.
