Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 sofa bed, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2-4

Unit 6A in Blue Tide is a true BEACH FRONT condominium on the ground floor of a small three-story community in the heart of the Emerald Coast, featuring parking, a private pool and private beach access. Located between Seagrove and Rosemary (just a few miles from Seaside), this is the perfect home for your relaxing beach experience! From a spacious living room, you will look out to the breathtaking white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters of the Gulf. Newly renovated with slate flooring, a wall-mounted 42' HDTV, high-speed internet, a Blueray DVD player and brand new furnishings throughout, this unit has been carefully designed to make the most of its amazing location and provide a luxurious home for guests. The large open kitchen is a dream, with brand new cabinets, silestone counter tops and stainless steel appliances (including a double stove and bottom drawer freezers). A KING master bedroom and a sofa bed with a foam mattress provide a comfortable sleeping experience for all.

Here, you are a short bike ride away from the communities of Alys Beach and Rosemary (where you will find outdoor concerts, local art displays and shops and eateries) and close to other beach communities such as Blue Mountain, Dune Allen, Grayton, Water Color and Seaside where fine dining, shopping and a salon/spa can be found. Along 30-A, there are eighteen miles of bike paths. Looking for a day in town? You will be just a few miles from shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, water parks, miniature golf, etc. in Destin (including the largest designer outlet mall in the country in Sandestin). In the opposite direction, Panama City is a short half-hour drive away. The Fort Walton Beach and Northwest Florida Beaches Airports are each less than an hour away.

This beautiful non-smoking condo has been completely renovated (new floors/kitchen/appliances) with brand new furniture, decorated with a cool modern feel perfect for a hot sunny day outside, with a focus on luxurious comfort to maximize your vacation experience. It features a spacious bedroom with KING BED and a comfortable pull out sofa in the large living room, very comfortably sleeping four. From the living room, you can enjoy amazing sea breezes straight from the beach. Stairs down to the beach are just a step away. During downtime, you can also enjoy the large open brand new kitchen with a breakfast bar and stools and an adjacent dining area, or settle on the large comfy couch to watch TV with a DVD player. INTERNET is also provided.

About Alma

I am a former lawyer turned entrepreneur and avid traveler. My love for travel started right here along 30A. Every summer, my mom would pack my brother and I into the car to drive down from Maryland to visit my great-grandmother in Seagrove Beach, where she and her two sisters had settled decades earlier. Through those trips, I saw 30A grow each year from 18 miles of open forest (yes, even where Seaside is now!) to the thriving collection of beach communities that it is today.

Upon graduation from law school, I settled in New York for many years until my love for the outdoors got the best of me. I have traveled extensively throughout North America, South America, Europe and South Africa, as well as to Australia and Antarctica, with Thailand next on the agenda.

Alma purchased this condo in 2010

Why Alma chose Beaches of South Walton

I always knew that when I bought a home, it would be along 30A. Soon after I went to college, my mom moved to Seagrove Beach from Maryland where I grew up. Since then, 30A has not only been a place of childhood summer memories, but also where I go home to visit my family, which extends to more descendants than I can count of my great-grandmother (who had four children) and her two sisters, many of whom also own homes all along 30A.

What makes this condo unique

Having extensively traveled myself, I view my properties as my opportunity to give other travelers the experience that I want when I travel. From soft towels to a responsive host, I want you to have the experience that I would want and, if you don't, I really do feel your pain and will do all I can to fix it. From the beginning, I have closely managed everything about my properties, including designing and decorating, and building the furniture myself (with some able assistance from friends and family!) Helping me in the day to day management are my mom and my lovely housekeeper, both of whom live only a short drive away. There is no management company standing between you and the owner, and my focus is on you, not shuttling guests through hundreds of properties. This is a personal effort and we will do everything we can to make sure that you have a wonderful trip.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. Great location right on the beach (50 stairs to beach). Condo is perfect for 4. Clean with comfortable beds (king and bunks). Kitchen with new appliances.

Beachfront views, secluded beach, and 30 Seconds to the beach

  • 4 of 5

I have 2 young kids and my husband and I were looking for easy beach access, an ocean view, and a pool for the kids. We got all 3 requirements and then some! The price is fairly reasonable.

The condo: The kids loved the bunk beds. The condo was simple, comfortable, and everything that we needed. Alma, the owner was quick to respond to all questions. All you have to do is communicate and she will respond.

Summary: my family and I hope to return to this condo next great. We had a wonderful experience and are looking forward to Summer 2018. I recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a great ocean view, a not so crowded beach, and simple and pleasant accommodations.

Thank you Alma!

Description is not very accurate

  • 1 of 5

The view from condo is very impressive,but that's where the positives end,only things in unit that don't need a lot of attention is fridge ,counter top, and dishwasher.Furniture is falling apart,everything needs painting ,This place could be very impressive,but falls way short of expectations.

Misleading Description

  • 1 of 5

The description of this condo is significantly misleading. This condo was not very clean or well kept. There was mold coming out of the air vents. The kitchen cabinets had string hanging out in place of cabinet knobs. There was a note on the kitchen counter saying it was unstable and not to put anything heavy on the counter. Half of the light switches didn't work and the wall plugs looked very outdated and dangerous with multiple wires all twisted together. There was also a significant roach problem while we were there. I noticed roach droppings on the kitchen counter, bathroom counter, and on the walls. Every night around 5:00pm, roaches started coming out in the condo. This continued all night. We went and bought roach stations but that did not help. I notified the owner and she was unsuccessful on getting someone to come take care of the problem. We have a two year old child that plays on the floor and sleeps close to the floor and we had to constantly watch for roaches around her. We were there for 24 hours and decided to leave but the owner refused to refund our money. I would never recommend this place and I don't think it should even be listed on HomeAway.

Excellent walk out gulf front one bedroom condo!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of the condo. The bunk beds in the living area provided a perfect napping spot for a rainy afternoon. Lighting in the bedroom was difficult to manage and There wasn't a designated area for bikes. Other than those two very minor issues......our stay in this well equipped condo was great and we look forward to returning.

great location, but there were a few problems

  • 2 of 5

we had a wonderful stay in Seacrest FL. the location of the condo was close to most things. it was a bit too far to bike to Seaside, but closer to Ali beach. The ocean view was excellent. There are about 3 flights of stairs to the beach, but that was not a problem for us.

The issues we had:

1. the claim of completely renovated- greatly exaggerated the kitchen, bath vanity and floors are new, but nothing else.

2. the pool was closed for renovations during our stay (this would have been fine if we were made aware, but I specifically chose a location with a pool and it was very disappointing not to have access to one.

3. there is not key to the back porch so we had to walk around the building to get to and from the beach.

4. The mattress were very uncomfortable and so were the pillows.

5. I know the room had been cleaned before we arrived, but honestly there was still so much sand that I vacuumed and swept again myself.

6. We had terrible allergies while we were there, and when we looked the a/c vents seem to have mold on them. This should be looked in to. It is Florida so there is always some mold somewhere, but this seemed more than expected.

we would not stay here again.
