'When anxious, uneasy and bad 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 Marie 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 us the same percentage of salt in our blood that is in the ocean. Therefore, we have salt in our blood, our sweat and in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And, when we go back to the sea, we are going back to wince we became.' As stated by an iconic former US President

Blue Tide 7B, in Seacrest, Florida, is a beautifully furnished and decorated 3 bedroom condo (includes the loft), 3 full baths, 2 balconies overlooking the amazing Gulf of Mexico, is very spacious with over 1800 square feet of living space. The beaches have been voted as one of the best of 'Americas Beaches'. You can walk right off the family room balcony to the steps to the gorgeous white sands and gulf. This is a unique feature that is great. It is located on scenic 30-A, 2 miles west of Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach and a few miles east of Watersound, Seaside and Seagrove Beach. I get a lots of compliments about how the condo is decorated and how comfortable it is. The condo is fully furnished to make you feel at home when you stay there. It is located on a 17 mile bike trail that runs along 30-A. This is lot's of fun for families. Bikes can be rented and delivered to the condo.

You can enjoy the incredible panoramic views to the east and west from the 2 private balconies of the sugar white sand and emerald green water of the gulf. It is truly breathtaking. There is nothing more beautiful and relaxing than sitting on one of the balconies in the morning enjoying coffee and/or breakfast or in the evening looking at the gulf and listening to the waves. The condo is designed so the sun never comes directly into the condo and no one can see in, so you never need to close the drapes and can enjoy the great Gulf views from the master, kitchen, dining area and family room all day long. Sun up to sun set. Even at night there is privacy and no one can see into the condo.

There is a private pool on-site. The condo offers 2 large bedrooms with comfortable king size beds and a full bath attached. There is a loft with 2 single beds. The loft is like a retreat for children, teenagers and maybe young single adults. There is a 3rd full bath on the main floor. There is also a pull out queen size sleeper sofa. The family room has 2 comfortable swivel rocker chairs with another chair and a queen sofa. It has an LED TV with cable and high definition on channels 800 to about 850, plus a DVD player. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and the loft has a DVD player. The master bedroom has a vanity area between the bedroom and bathroom for a little more privacy. It also has a large walk in travertine shower with a regular and a overhead rain shower head. Very relaxing. There is wireless internet and free local and US long distance phone availability.

The condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen, seating for 6 around the dining table and a breakfast bar with stools. Both the master and family room have double sliding glass doors that open to balconies with seating and tables. Linens, towels and washcloths and a full sized washer/dryer are provided.

The Blue Tide has about 200 linear feet of private gulf frontage. There are only 18 condos in this quaint, quiet, family friendly complex. It provides a wonderful atmosphere for a fantastic family vacation and a place to create life long fond memories. I have so many families that have been back now 3 and 4 times. Many say they treasure there time spent at the Blue Tide and can't wait to get back. I feel the same way.

I think you would as well.

There are 2 grills in front of the complex next the parking lot for use. There are laws preventing grilling on the balcony or behind the complex.

This is a non smoking condo. It is not allowed.

Brad, we finally got unpacked. We are used to bringing so many things for the kitchen. You have everything and more. So, we just left our things unpacked. We absolutely love this condo. It is the nicest place we have ever rented. If we had a condo, it would look just like yours. We would so much like to rent from you every year until we cannot afford paying the rates. Please consider renting to us again next year. It is worth every cent. Jane H, MO

About Brad Bridges

I own a medical sales recruiting company. I also own and mange a group of rental properties, including the 2 condos at the Blue Tide - 7B and 2B

Brad Bridges purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Brad Bridges chose Beaches of South Walton

How can you not love the sugar white sand and the emerald gulf. The views blew me away when I first stayed at the Blue Tide and I took advantage of a buying opportunity. I have loved every minute of it and get excited everytime I come back.

What makes this townhome unique

The sun never comes directly into the condo so you never have to close the drapes. You have incredible Gulf views all day long from the master, dining area, kitchen and family room Also, a big plus is you can walk right off the family room balcony to the steps to the beach.

Beautiful family friendly retreat-must see!

  • 5 of 5

This town home was much larger than we expected & easily accommodated our family of 5. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped & the view was amazing! Easy access to the beach via the sliding glass doors on the main level made our daily trips down quick & simple. The daily chair/umbrella set up included was a definite bonus-we even took advantage of the additional setup at the owners discounted rate. Based on his recommendation, we tried out a few local places & they were all a definite treat: The Perfect Pig (best bacon ever!), The Hub (great family friendly environment), Goatfeathers (amazing fresh seafood to cook yourself), Donut Hut (our kiddos loved the treat) to name a few.

Everyone knows renting for a beach get away means you need to provide your own meals, but here are a few items we didn't think about when we stopped at Publix before check-in & had to go back out: laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, scrubbers for dishes, paper towels, any/all cooking spices, coffee filters (standard round shape-our home coffee maker uses cone shape), cleaning supplies for during your stay, trash can liners, toilet paper (1 roll per bathroom was provided), charcoal (2 grills out front are very nice)...hoping this will make others packing/planning a little bit easier as we just weren't as prepared as we thought!

Communication with Brad, the owner, was seamless. He was incredibly attentive before we arrived and thankfully, we did not have to contact him at all during our weeklong stay. Our children really enjoyed the pool multiple times when they were tired of fighting waves & sand in their trunks.

Starting the day with a cup of coffee on the deck or ending it with a glass of wine in the same spot...we did both & it was bliss. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spot of 30-A!

DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE- TRULY BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation in this condo. It was the perfect location for relaxation and the views couldn't be beat. We felt like we had so much privacy and the condo was beautifully decorated, and we felt right at home. We saw dolphins every day & even a stingray! It was an unforgettable trip. I highly recommend!!!!!

Great place for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We took my 3 children (ages 7, 4, and 2) and my parents to this condo. None of us wanted to leave! Besides the amazing views and beautiful white sand beaches and clear water, the location could not be beat! We brought bikes and had access to many of the areas amenities, including The Hub (restaurants and outdoor movies/music) and Alys/Rosemary Beach areas where there are plenty of dining and shopping options. The condo itself was clean and spacious and well-decorated, and the loft area was perfect for my two older children to share (the main master suite had plenty of room for a pack-and-play for my youngest). All beds were incredibly comfortable. Both bedrooms had attached bathrooms which was very convenient for travelling with other couples, and the downstairs full bathroom was a nice bonus. The pool was never crowded and made for a nice break from the beach or for an evening swim. Additionally, the beach was never crowded. We look forward to staying here again! The only suggestion I would make would be smaller furniture on the balconies, as the furniture there now is quite large and hard to maneuver around, at times, and also hard for little ones to sit on. Great place!!

The best!

  • 5 of 5

Our week in this condo will be a hard one to top. The sky and water were fabulous and being able to view all from both balconies of this condo made it spectacular. The condo was clean and spacious and quiet even though all units appeared to be occupied all week. The walk to the beach is a short one and even the stairs were minimal compared to other places we've stayed. Access begins right off the main level balcony with stairs leading to the boardwalk in the well manicured lawn. Landscape is well mantained and part of the view.

The owner checked in with us via this site and when the blender refused to work, he sent a brand new one to us within hours. We appreciated the little things like hangers in the closets, loads of drawer spaces, and a coded front door that eliminates keeping up with keys.

The front door opens to a stairway and foyer that serves as extra personal space for this condo (not shared). The foyer is appointed with a cute beach theme that offers plenty of open space for storing anything from kids' bikes, extra coolers, empty luggage, paper goods, etc. and still does not impede entrance. The loft room on the third level is marketed as being great for kids, and while that's true, it worked fine for two young women in their mid 20's. It is open to the landing but allows for plenty of room to spread out and still offer privacy. The AC worked well throughout the condo, keeping even the top floor cool through out our stay. Two full baths on the second level (bedroom floor), one opening to both hall and street side bedroom, were enough facilities for 4 women. And there's always the full bath on the main floor if needed. The beach-side master bath has two sinks with one being located outside the shower/toilet area. This one comes with a large counter space and was the one preferred by the young women in our group who were sleeping in the loft. Especially since the large walk-in shower comes with rain shower heads and corner seats. The kitchen is well stocked, and while may be a bit tight if more than one or two cooks are working together, it has a large attached island with bar seating on one side. Plenty of seating at the large dining table and comfortable sofa and chairs for movie watching at night or curling up with a good book in the spacious den. We will definitely consider this place again for future stays and know that we will have to plan soon as I'm sure it will be fully booked by next summer.

Beautiful Gulf Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our two young children had an amazing stay here. The location is absolutely perfect. We rode our bikes to Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, Seagrove, etc. The weather in April was fantastic, we were able to sleep with the glass doors open so we could hear the ocean each night. The beach was not crowded at all. This condo has spectacular gulf views from both the main balcony as well as the master bedroom balcony. You can walk down the steps from the balcony to the lawn which overlooks the beach and makes a gorgeous spot to watch the sunset each evening. From there, you are just a few feet away from the steps that take you down to the beach. For some, the steps may be a little much to get down to the beach but for us it was perfect. Being a little higher up gives you a better view! The condo was amazingly clean, comfortable and everything as advertised. The owners (Brad & Liz) were fantastic to work with and made sure we had everything we needed and more. I highly recommend staying here, there is no doubt we will be back!
