About the property

3 Story Private Home - 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

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 house is the perfect getaway for couples and small families. Located inside an exclusive-gated community, the house is appointed with the latest technology including wi-fi, high definition televisions, dish satellite TV and gaming system.

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...

Why Walter chose Beaches of South Walton

We had this home custom built for small families and couples. If that describes you, then this 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.

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!!

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!

June 2010 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed in the Blue Mountain Beach house in June 2010, and we absolutely loved it! The community is now on our list for future vacations and even possible retirement, which says a lot because although we visit Florida often, this was the first place that we would consider living. The community is nestled between Destin and Panama City Beach, but feels worlds away from the hectic, crowded vibes in those towns. Quiet, natural-looking, friendly, artsy - it really has it all if you are looking for a little peace, and the beach is as beautiful as any I've seen, and easy to get to, being literally straight down the street (by car or bike trail) from the house. There was a Publix and a Walmart within a few minutes to the North, and numerous cute beach communities with shops, including Blue Mountain, plus several others just to the East and West. FYI - bike riding is big here, with great trails connecting the communities, and there are a couple of bike rental shops within maybe 3-4 blocks of the home (with delivery and pick-up available at your home). If doing bikes or street-ready golf carts, it's a good idea to book in advance of your stay.

As for the house, it was adorable. We didn't know quite what to expect from the pictures, but they really don't do it justice. It was the most unique home we've stayed in, and the neighborhood was full of others just as unique. Our kids loved the three-floor architecture and the funky feel of the place, and we were very pleased with the cleanliness, furnishings, and extras like games, magazines, books, etc. If there was one issue, it would be that the downstairs (master) bedroom can get very cold when keeping the rest of the home pleasantly cool, but there were extra blankets and it worked out fine for us.

We will definitely be back to Blue Mountain Beach for regular visits. Thanks, Walter! (btw, Walter was very responsive and easy to work with, and readily accommodated us for a short-stay at the tail end of our vacation.)

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.
