About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

(Please note: All carpeted areas were replaced with wooden laminate in 2016). Never be bored at the beach again! After enjoying the sun and surf of the most beautiful beach in the world (Blue Mountain Beach), relax on the condo's lanai in the peaceful setting of the lush vegetation that surrounds this most private of beach resorts, vacationing in a beautifully decorated 1958 sq.ft. condo, built in 2006. Early in the morning or during the cool of evening, grab one of the complimentary canoes or kayaks that are docked beside the Dune lake to fish, simply float, or paddle to the sugary sands of the beach and ocean. For the less adventurous, call 'Captain Bob' for complimentary transport on Sanctuary's pontoon boat across the lake (March 1-October 31, 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week & 9am to 7pm April 1-Sept 30). As you and your family choose to go & come from the beach, 'Captain Bob' is on site and just a phone call away. Once at the beach, your 2 complimentary chairs and umbrella ( free!) are set up just for you! (You may rent more umbrellas and chairs at beachside, if needed. The rate is $10. per day for each extra chair and $40. per day for 1 umbrella and 2 chairs .) You may also elect to bring your own extra beach chairs if 2 will not suffice. As the day draws to a close, gather by the pools to swim, relax in one of two jacuzzis, and grill your favorite dinner on one of several gas grills, against the backdrop of many waterfalls spilling into the four pools (one is heated & one is a large 'zero-entry' pool). After a relaxing pool-side meal, swim until the chill of evening draws you to the circular, pool-side stone bench surrounding the gas-powered fire pit. When the serenity of this peaceful place has rejuvenated you, spend days browsing the many quaint shops, famous restaurants, and fully stocked antique & consignment warehouses nearby. For the 'serious shoppers', Destin Commons and the Sandestin Outlet Mall is just a short drive away. For those who avoid shopping-- sidewalks, private boardwalks, and sandy beaches are great 'walking trails'. For the serious athlete, a state of the art work out and exercise room is on site. For 'workaholics', a business center is just steps away. This uncrowded 30A area along one of the most famous beaches in the world epitomizes the union of 'Love of Luxury' and 'Love of Nature's Beauty'. Once you stay here, you will never want to vacation anywhere else!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I work in the family business, but find my greatest joy spending time with my grandchildren at one of my two vacation homes--one on the Georgia Coast, and this one on the Florida Gulf. What a life!

Why the Owner Chose Blue Mountain Beach, FL, USA:
My family and I have recently fallen in love with the picturesque turquoise-blue waters of the Gulf and its sugary white sand. No other beach can compare!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Walking the beach with family and friends, fishing and kayaking with my grandchildren, browsing the many cute shops, eating at a variety of restaurants, and, of course, late night visits with my grandchildren around the pool-side firepit (I really learn a lot!)
