About the property

3 Story Private Home - 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 7

We are perfectly appointed in beautiful Blue Mountain Beach, Florida - the heart of scenic highway 30A.

Just a few blocks from the pristine beaches of 30A, this comfortable 3 bedroom 2 bathroom luxury cottage is the perfect getaway for couples and small families. Located inside an exclusive-gated community, the house is appointed with the latest technology including high speed internet, high definition televisions, roku media players and more.

The sugar sand beach is amazing, and never crowded. Our spacious beach access includes parking for cars, golf carts and bikes. Clean restrooms with outdoor showers are available, along with a large deck overlooking the beach.

Beyond the beach, the options are endless. Nearby Seaside, Watercolor and Rosemary Beach are among several 'tony' beach communities that host weekly concerts and movies, with eclectic shops and great local restaurants. We are just 10 miles from Destin (west) and 15 miles from Panama City Beach (east).

A 22-mile paved walking/jogging/biking trail extends the length of the sparkling emerald coast, taking in coastal dune lakes and picturesque beach towns. Bike/kayak rentals, restaurants, and shopping are all within walking distance of the house.

The only thing missing is you...

About Walter

These are my sons - Bronson and Gabriel.

They have been coming to this beach since they were babies.

We live in Virginia and bypass NC, SC, and the rest of FL to bask on the beaches on 30a...and it's so worth it.

Walter purchased this house in 2007

Why Walter chose Blue Mountain Beach

We had this home custom built for small families and couples. If that describes you, then this is just the house you've been looking for.

Amazing beach cottage and location!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this beach cottage. It was perfect for our family of 4 and everything was just as described.

The house was close to the beach and we walked or rode bikes everyday. There was also a great beach access with bathrooms and outside showers.

We will definitely be back for another vacation in the clouds!

Our Family loves this Cottage- our 5th time vacationing at this Cottage Home "In the Couds"

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at this cottage every time we come to the Best Beach on the Gulf on 30-A. Our family has made this beautiful cottage our second home. We have stayed here now for the 5th time and are never disappointed. The home is unique and feels like a tower in the clouds. It accommodates our family very well and is so close to everything. We walk down to the beach which is only a few blocks. We always rent bikes at the shop a couple blocks away and jump on the bike trail that takes us to Watercolor and Seaside, which always is a perfect day. The ability to get to a grocery store or go shopping is easy and convenient. We truly wish we could stay at this location all year. We plan to come again next year to stay at our favorite cottage and enjoy the sugar sand beach and clear gulf water. The owners are always accommodating and make us feel right at home. We cant wait to come back!

Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

This is a very nice place however I was disappointed from the moment we arrived. First of all the place was picked up but it was not clean. I spent at least an hour cleaning the floors with paper towels and some soap and water. There was something sticky all over floor near the fridge. Stairs had not even been swept. I used almost an entire roll of towels cleaning floors on 2nd floor and on stairs up and down. A/C was not working on 3rd floor. Called Sunday morning, nobody showed up till Tuesday morning. Property manager hung up on my husband when he called after identifying himself. When we left on Saturday it once again was not working. Ceiling falling down in bathroom due to the AC issues. I washed the white shower curtain in bathroom upstairs as it was pink halfway up it from mold. Sand was all over kitchen table. There was dry cereal (Shredded Wheat) found under cushions at table area. We moved the couch to find lots of hidden treasures there as well; only moved it because the A/C was not working on 3rd floor and daughters could not sleep in rooms so they slept on couch till resolved. Window sills, shelf holding movies was all dusted and wiped down while I was there; my rag was black when done. Whomever is being paid to clean the place needs to be fired. All I can say is that when we left it was in much better condition than we found it. Other than cleaning 2 bathrooms and changing sheets on bed the cleaning people didn't need to do much as I did everything else Friday evening against my husband's wishes.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry about your experience with our cleaner. Our regular cleaning person was out of town, so we had to use a substitute. Clearly that person was not up to the job. As you can see from the vast majority of our reviews, this is not something we will tolerate. We sincerely apologize and will take action to make things right. Sincerely, Walter (Owner)

A Beautiful Experience ...!

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation (for 5) for a week in December ... just a chance to get away. And it was beautiful! The home is a home ... cozy! Even though we were there in December, we still went to the beach and 'got our feet wet'! Stores and attractions are close enough!

We really enjoyed that the master bedroom is on the first floor, while to additional rooms are upstairs. Provided us some quiet time. It was an incredible week! And the owners as well as the property manager were very accommodating. Thank you for making our little vacation ... incredible!!

Best Spring Break Ever! We LOVE "In the Clouds"

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at our "tower" vacation house we were in heaven! We had read the previous reviews but honestly, not even the reviews could do justice to this adorable and nicely appointed beach home! What's better is the location. Our children are 6, 8, and 9. The kids and my hubby brought their bikes -- I rented from Big Daddy's just a short ride away. Literally less than five minutes. We were able to ride all over "The Village" where the home is located, not to mention all over town. We rode to the beach, La Lobos bakery (to DIE for), For the Health of It health food store, down scenic 30A, to Blue Mountain Creamery where we went every day to have delicious home made ice cream, sorbet, and yogurt. It was handy not being right "on the beach" as we were able to let our kids out in the great neighborhood to ride around or take walks without worry. There is a great neighborhood pool (one block away), outdoor shuffle board, even a workout room! There is a forest across the street where you can hike for miles...or bike! Everything was wonderful, we were even able to extend our stay. The town is amazing. Was exactly our style. Everything within bike reach...and everything the other reviews stated is dead-on. Thank you so much Walter -- if don't actually move to Blue Mountain Beach this Summer, we will be back to "In the Clouds"!

Stayed an extra week!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all. Beautiful hardwood floors, two flat screens, nice open floor plan, and a wonderful kitchen. Short walk to the beach, restaurants, and hiking/riding trails. When we were driving up the street I saw the cutest tall house and remarked how much I liked it and it turned out to be "ours". We had a little trouble learning the Dish TV, but one phone call to the owner's management company took care of that. Thanks, Donald. We got so comfortable we decided instead of moving to another place we would just stay where we were for an extra week. The owner, Walter, made everything just too easy! This house would be fun for a long term stay or a weekend getaway. We hope to be back!

The area offers local restaurants, unique art galleries and shops, and a 22 mile bike/jogging path that runs along the coastline.

10 miles away lies 'civilization' in Destin where you can enjoy Destin Commons, Silver Sands outlet mall, movies and night life.

If you want adventure, hike through Point Washington State Forest across the street. The trail system consists of 3 double track loop trails. The hiker or bicyclist can travel the 3.5, 5 or 10 mile loop. Always fun is to take a guided ride on horseback through Point Washington State Forest.
