You will be pleasantly surprised by all the 'extras' in our home that you would not normally find with other rentals.



Our house is situated in beautiful Blue Mountain Beach, Florida in the heart of Scenic Highway 30A just 10 miles from Destin to the west and 15 miles from Panama City Beach to the east. 30A is a scenic drive along the emerald coast that is speckled with unique artsy beach communities, each with their special flare and appeal. Seaside hosts weekly concerts and movies and has eclectic shops and great local restaurants. If you travel further east on 30A you will reach Alys Beach which also hosts weekly outdoor concerts and movies. Further east is Rosemary Beach, which again has unique shops and eateries. A 22 mile paved walking/jogging/biking trail extends the length of 30A and passes beautiful beaches, coastal dune lakes, and picturesque beach towns. Bike/kayak rentals, restaurants, and shopping are all within walking distance of the house. We are within a few hundred yards of the sugar white sands and emerald waters that have been voted one of the top 10 beaches. Beach access (with parking, shower, and restrooms) is a one minute drive or short walk or bike ride.



Good Day Sunshine is a gorgeous 3 story beach house directly across the street from the Blue Mountain Beach Club pool and exercise room and just blocks from the sugar white sand and emerald water of the beaches of South Walton.



The first floor offers a large bedroom with queen bed, spacious closet, full-size bathroom with tub, travertine floors, 32' flat screen HDTV with blue-ray disc player, and XBOXs - PlayStation 3 and loads of games to choose from.



Traveling up the newly installed wood stairwell brings you to the second floor with newly ceramic tiled floors, a well-equipped gourmet kitchen with smooth cooktop stove, microwave, full-size refrigerator with ice-maker, granite countertops, and breakfast bar. This floor also offers a dining table with seating for 4, a pull-out full-size sleeper sofa, 42' HDTV, PlayStation 3 with over 100 games.



The balcony is likely where you’ll spend a fair amount of time so we made sure we have seating for 4 and an umbrella to relax and enjoy dinners, have an evening cocktail, or just soak up the sun.



Moving up to the third floor offers two additional bedrooms and a full-size bathroom. One bedroom offers a queen-size bed, spacious closet, a 32' HDTV, blu-ray disc player, and Xbox and plenty of games. The other bedroom offers a king-size bed, spacious closet, a 32' HDTV, blu-ray disc player, and Xbox. Both bedrooms on the third floor have glass sliders that open on to a balcony with beautiful views of the beach club pool and beyond. Also on the third floor is a fabulous bathroom with travertine floors, granite countertop, and large glass walk-in shower. All rooms in the home are freshly painted, and newly furnished and decorated.



From our balcony you can easily see the swimming pool or enjoy the views of our beautiful sunsets to the west.










The exterior of the home offers a brick pavered driveway and patio, outside shower. We welcome you to help other families by utilizing our "storage bin" that contains beach gear and pool toys that everyone has donated. The exterior of the home is newly painted and landscaped nicely with palm trees, rose bushes, and flowering shrubs .



The Village of Blue Mountain Beach is a hidden community that is quiet but contains all you need within our gated neighborhood.

*Large Swimming Pool with fountains

*Exercise Room

*Bathrooms and outside showers

*Designated Barbeque Grilling areas



Good Day Sunshine is a paradise oasis just waiting for you!

About The Owner

We reside in Indianapolis, IN where we work in the areas of law enforcement and education. Owning a vacation home along Scenic Highway 30A has been a dream for us for many years. We have been vacationing in the beautiful beaches of South Walton for the past 20 years with our children, Mandy and Alex, and we had always hoped that one day we could own property of our own in this splendid vacation destination. Now that our dream has come true, we are more than happy to share our great little beach getaway with you. Sincerely, Mark and Lisa Stephens.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Blue Mountain Beach

Scenic Highway 30A is a charming community comprised of artsy little beach towns. The area pulled at our heart strings from the moment we stepped foot on the sugar white sand beaches, browsed the shops and art galleries, dined in the delectable local restaurants, and biked the beautiful trails past dunes and coastal lakes. Blue Mountain Beach is a quiet, quaint community home to shops, restaurants, and bike/kayak rentals and nearby Grayton Beach, Watercolor, and Seaside. The house is situated in a quiet little village with lovely landscaping, brick streets, sidewalks, and a roundabout, and it's just across the street from the beach club with access to the large pool and exercise room. It's a short stroll to the beach by foot or bike. You're sure to enjoy your stay in this great community.

What makes this house unique

As the owners, we use this home from time to time and are more than happy to share it with you. We hope and expect that you will treat the home and it’s furnishings with care and respect, so that in the future others will be able to enjoy their stay here. Our home is comfortable, clean, and conveniently located to beach accesses, bike/kayak rentals, dining, and shopping. Once your feet feel the soft sugar white sand, you smell the salty air, and you see the natural beauty preserved along 30A you will fall in love and want to return year after year. The easy-going, carefree 30A lifestyle is catching, so beware!

The house is beautiful, modern appliances and the balcony in the morning is an incredible spot!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down best rental property! The location is prime— 1 minute drive from Blue mountain beach. The house is beautiful and perfect for a quiet and relaxing beach getaway. The house is also right across the street from the pool and close to restaurants and fun shops in town. Planning on renting again because this place is too good to pass up!

Nice, Quiet and Quaint

  • 4 of 5

Our family vacationed here late July 2017. The Condo was nice and located directly across the street from the pool which was very convenient. It is also in close proximity to restaurants and other retail establishments. I would highly recommend renting bikes while you're there. You can access a lot of what the area has to offer this way and avoid traffic (which wasn't bad). I thought the beach would be closer to access than it was. It would be much easier to drive to the beach instead of walking especially if you have children. I would estimate the beach is half mile from the condo. There was limited parking at the beach access but we didn't have any problems finding a parking spot and it appeared construction was underway for additional parking on the streets. If you have kids who enjoy video games this place is a perfect fit. Literally every room has some sort of game station with a wide variety of games and movies.

This was our first time staying in this area. In previous years we stayed in SanDestin. We liked this area because it was less crowded and still close enough to Destin to make a quick 10/15 minute trip to the outlets, etc.

Overall we were pleased and would recommend it to our friends and family.

My family had a great time. The house we rented was perfect. I was able to speak with the owner multiple times prior to our arrival and he was very helpful on things to do and places to see. I would definitely rent this property again.

Beach access (with parking, shower, and new bathrooms) is a two-minute drive or a short walk or bike ride. A 22-mile paved walking/jogging/biking trail travels through Blue Mountain Beach and runs along the coast through the rest of the beach communities of Highway 30A such as nearby Grayton Beach, Seaside, and Watercolor. So bring your bikes or rent from nearby shops which will deliver and pick-up at the door of the house.

Destin is only a 15-minute drive west and has many restaurants and shops, which include Hard Rock Cafe', Silver Sands Outlet Mall, a Rave movie theater, and Big Kahuna Water Park to name just a few. Panama City Beach is a 20-minute drive east with many more restaurants and shops to choose from. Be sure to check out Pier Park for shopping, dining, concerts and movies.
