Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The sight of the Gulf with its emerald waves will call you to cross the street and find the little used public access stairs down to the wide sugar sand beach. After a relaxing swim or stroll you'll find a warm, inviting home built and fully outfitted for easy beach living. Blue Mountain Beach is small beachfront community, one of the fun and funky jewels that are the towns strung along county road C-30A. This scenic little track winds through lush pine-forested dunes, past spring fed lakes and gulf vistas. Check out Dune Allen, Grayton Beach, and Seaside, each just a short hop away and each with its distinct offering of shops, restaurants, galleries, parks, cultural events, and yes, more beaches.You will not see a high rise anywhere. Back in Blue Mountain Beach you'll find just about anything you need among the little shops and businesses scattered about. Need serious groceries? There's a Publix market 5 minutes away, and the very finest of fresh seafood markets at Goatfeathers, one mile away.

Back at the house enjoy the gulf view and its breezes as you look out from one of the two front porches; one huge with dining and seating areas and the other smaller, just off the master bedroom. Or hang out on the back deck with its quiet breakfast spot just off the kitchen. Enjoy the new sound system and flat panel TV in the cool and spacious den on the main floor. Lure the kids to their own upstairs den with board games, TV and DVD player. Sleep like a champion beneath your ceiling fan after an evening beach walk beneath the brilliant Milky Way. Wake up, and say, I found it!

About Robin Leake

Karen and Robin live in New Orleans and have enjoyed the idyllic wonders of Blue Mountain Beach for many years. Brother Fields and wife Rhonda live in Sugarland, TX. For us, Surf's Up at BMB means best of times. We hope you will find all the joy our family vacation home.has brought us.

Robin Leake purchased this house in 1994

Why Robin Leake chose Beaches of South Walton

We used to go to Yucatan 4 or 5 times a year. In the late eighties, we discovered the amazing Emerald Coast and have returned frequently ever since. Days are spent mostly on the beach and in the evening there are several consistently brilliant restaurants nearby. Shopping of every sort is close by. Mostly, this small area of northwest Florida possesses a special atmosphere, a natural beauty, and a restorative power unlike any other place we have found.

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure. Ocean views, board games and books, tons of towels and everything you could ever need. The outdoor shower was so convenient. Felt like staying at your favorite great Aunt's beach house. Thank you :)

We love it here

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here. We love this house. We feel so at home here except we are on the beach.(the access is so close) We love Blue Mountain. All of the restraunts... all of the people... our first time being at the beach on the Fourth of July. It was beautiful. I'm sure we will visit again hopefully sooner than later. Thanks again for letting us share your sweet house.

The house had a very homey feel, and had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nicely decorated, the beds were comfortable. Do not anticipate anyone sleeping comfortably on the couch/ pull out bed. It is mainly metal that you would be laying on. The location is perfect, the beach was not overly crowded. We would definitely stay there again, and hope to in the future.

Charming and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at your home so much that we returned for our second year. The bathrooms inside the property have been updated and are quite nice; however, the outdoor shower is perfect for coming in from a sandy day at the beach. In addition, the kitchen is stocked with several amenities that make cooking away from home much easier, like spices, condiments, cooking spray, etc. The home is nicely and comfortably appointed. The decor is attractive without being pretentious. Would recommend.
