About Bliss Beach Rentals

At Five Star and Bliss Beach Rentals, we strive to be different – and we are. Unlike other big-box management companies, our personalized approach and dedication to service allows us to put greater emphasis on creating a unique and memorable experience for every guest that walks through our doors.

Our goal is to pair exceptional properties with unparalleled service. That is why we hand-select only the best homes in Destin and 30A to represent. If you have a property that you are considering renting, we'd be more than happy to provide a proposal and projection.

Experience Service

We believe a vacation rental should be more than a place to rest your head; it should be a place to escape and experience luxury. But offering five-star accommodations is just the start to enhancing our guest's experiences. We treat our guests like family, offering personalized greets, dedicated concierge services, free passes to daily activities and attractions, in-house cleaners, and a professional maintenance team available 24/7.

Why Bliss Beach Rentals chose Seacrest Beach

Our family has travelled to 30A for the last 12 years. When the opportunity arose to buy in Monterey, we jumped on board because we believe it is the finest condo complex on the east end of 30A.

What makes this condo unique

We chose this property because of the turquoise views of the water that take over as you walk down the hallway. The panoramic views from the kitchen, bar, dining room and living room are truly breathtaking.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely a perfect place to stay. Only one complaint. The wicker furniture in the living room is extremely uncomfortable. Curling up with a book or movie is difficult.

Beautiful well equipped condo.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the decor and the ocean view couldn't have been any better. Coffee cake was an extra special treat. The only thing that needs some improvement are the mattresses.

I've spent my life vacationing between Navarre Beach and Destin. This was our first trip to 30a and we fell in love! Your condo is stunning! The decor is beautiful, the upgrades in your bathroom are fabulous and the location was perfect!

We were close to all of the dining and shopping that the area offers. The stairs were a little exhausting, but after all of the food and drinks we had on vacation, we probably needed to climb them several times!!!

I can not wait to book your condo again for next year!!!!!

Great stay at Monterey!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was 6 adults and 2 children. The unit's location can't be beat-- the view of the gulf is breathtaking. We enjoyed being right over the pool as well. While we were staying there were some issues with the TV and minor maintenance repairs (microwave, light bulbs out). The property management company was quick to solve issues. Our one complaint was that the kitchen was way to small to accommodate out group. There wasn't much storage space, with the cabinets full of unnecessary items, some duplicates, so our pantry supplies had to sit out on the counter. Also, the refrigerator door won't open all the way because of the cabinets, we also found this to be strange and difficult. The unit above us was jackhammering out their tile and that made daytime naps difficult for our children. Obviously that's out of the control of this unit and something that can happen in a condo. Overall those issues were small and we would stay there again.

Nice condo but overpriced compared to others in Monterey

  • 3 of 5

Have stayed at a couple other condos in Monterey that were better priced with better accommodations. Although 3 by the Sea had nice bathroom and kitchen finishes, the mattresses (especially in master) were very uncomfortable. The washer/dryer were not full sized and dryer took a very long time to dry clothes. Found some of the antique decor not a fit for us. Condo is on second floor which doesn't afford a view onto the beach. Of course it is overall beautiful but will not likely choose again.

Owner's Response: Hi Jamie! Thanks for staying with us a '3 By the Sea,' and taking the time to share your experience. This condo does not have antique decor. It's flair is coastal chic and quite popular around here. The condo is also beachfront so we're a little unsure as to why you would say it doesn't have a view... We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time overall, though! PS - The owners replaced the mattresses and they are incredibly comfortable! We'd love to have you again!

Better than I could've imagined

  • 5 of 5

From the minute I walked into this property I was blown away. It was so clean. It was decorated beautifully. The view- oh my gosh, you are literally right on the gulf and the access couldn't be any closer. There was banana bread waiting for us and this home had everything we needed to be cozy. Nothing was overlooked. Sometimes you rent a place and the pictures and description are better than the actual place and you are let down, not this place. I felt lucky to get to stay here and was so sad when it was time to leave. This was perfect for our family with 3 litttle kids. We could've fit in a whole 'nother family too. Beautiful! Will never forger the memories made here.
