About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Queen Sofabed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) - recently updated

Vacation planning is in full swing. Yahoo Travel has named Santa Rosa Beach/Blue Mountain Beach as one of the 10 best beach destinations in the world and "Taylor Made in Blue Mountain" is only footsteps away! The untainted, sugar white sands of Blue Mountain Beach are too spectacular for words, and our beach entrance is one of only eight beaches in all of Walton County with a manned lifeguard station (during season) to add to your comfort and peace of mind.

Then there is "Taylor Made in Blue Mountain" 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 our townhome a true home away from home as for us, IT IS. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has comfortable furnishings, deluxe 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, a flat screen HD TV w/DVD and blackout curtains. 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 NEW 40" HD SmartTV. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need. 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 for 6 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! Taylor Made in Blue Mountain is only minutes from fine dining, shopping and renowned golf . Within easy walking distance, there are many local restaurants, shops and services who love to cater to our guests. Southwest Airlines service is available through the Panama City International Airport (ECP) and is just 30 min. away making travel to the beach even easier. But best of all, the BEACH is heaven on earth!

As a bonus, our guests enjoy exclusive membership privileges to enjoy the extra large pool and workout amenities at the nearby Blue Mountain Beach Club just up the street 2 mins. 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. We like getting to know our guests. Whatever works for you, we aim to please. If you have the time, please check out our on-line recommendations as well as our guest book comments (located just between the rates and photographs).

About Brian Taylor

My wife and I live in Nashville, TN. We absolutely love the quiet, slow pace of the Blue Mountain area. We also love getting to know our guests. I encourage anyone interested in our unit to give me a call.

Brian Taylor purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Brian Taylor chose Blue Mountain Beach

We've stayed in this unit many much we bought it. We absolutely LOVE 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 and are frequent guest at Hurricane Oyster Bar - the best Smoked Tuna Dip on 30A). Our townhouse in a complex of only 8 units. And the parking is at the front door. It's free of all the daily stress...just what a vacation should be.

What makes this townhome unique

I enjoy getting up early, grabbing a mug of coffee and going out for a walk or run along the beach or down 30-A. It's always free of traffic and you get to meet your neighbors. Everyone is very friendly. We also love to bike and the area is very bike friendly with bike lanes and paths everywhere.

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 Pickle Factory or Pizza By The Sea at Gulf Place. 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 hope our guests get to enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had an amazing visit and loved the condo and the community. We plan to return next year. Anyone looking for a fine dining experience should try Vintage on 98, across from Silver Sands, and Bowery on 30a was our favorite walk to place for a glass of wine and weekend music! Ladies, the nail place up the street in Redfish complex was terrific.

Cold Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather was cold and miserable 4/7 days we had a wonderful Spring Break! The condo was exactly as pictured and very clean. The kitchen was fully stocked making cooking in fun. The beach was closer than we thought and the bathrooms at the public access came in handy.

Carl was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Carl's Cabana! Maybe next year the weather will be as a nice as Carl's Cabana.

Great cozy vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Only thing I wish this place had was an bigger couch to snuggle on with my love and better pans for making eggs and baking cookies. But location was great, decor was pretty, very clean and it’s quiet! Will be back again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback and we look forward to having you back. We are actually looking for a new sectional now as we agree that the couch if very functional but could be better and will certainly take a look at some of the cooking/baking wears when we go down in 3 weeks. We want our guest to be at home away from home. Thanks Brian

Amazing location! Amazing condo!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be any more delighted with our stay at this condo. The beach is very accessible (very close!), and one of our favorite beaches in the Gulf.

Condo was very clean, well stocked, nicely updated and very well laid out.

I have not found a better condo around Santa Rosa at this price-point in the past 10 years. Owner is super-friendly, and extremely accommodating.

Thank you for sharing your condo with us! We will rent this condo again!

Blue Mountain Beach is such an ideal location, and is unspoiled by heavy commercialization one finds elsewhere. It's a place that you feel is private, yet 10 minutes away you will find all the things you want. A few examples follow.

Grayton Beach State Park 2 miles. Huge trail system for road and mountain bikes. Bring your bike, the entire area is bike friendly!!! The beaches of Santa Rosa have been judged by Yahoo Travel to be one of the Top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. The beach has two life guards on duty (during season), and very clean restrooms. The use of the Blue Mountain Beach Club with its 9000 square foot pool and workout room is included in the rental.

Be sure to check out the Hurricane Oyster Bar (yummmm), Red Bar, The Pickle Factory, Local Catch and a number of others all just off 30a at the intersection to Grayton Beach or our newest favorite in the area, The Bay. The Great Southern in the Seaside Circle, with its wonderful mojitos and happy hour, not to mention their James Beard chef and Sundog Books right next door. Live entertainment can often be found in the amphitheater in the circle. It's just 4 miles to the east.

If you get a chance and just want dinner and a movie, you can do both at the same time at the Ovation Movie Theater at the Boulevard 10 Cinema at the Grand Boulevard shopping complex on 98 to the west in SanDestin. Check them out online. Big comfortable seats with fold out tables. Orders taken at and delivered to your seat throughout the movie, and the food is really good.
