One story, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath (2 Master Suites) in The Village of Blue Mountain

Pura Vida is the perfect home for families or couples featuring two master bedrooms with king size beds, a bunk room and two full baths.

Walk, bike, or golf cart over to the sugar sands and the waters of Blue Mountain Beach. Our home is tucked in a quiet neighborhood which offers an oversized community pool and fitness center. The Blue Mountain Beach access has free parking available, if you prefer to drive, as well as public restrooms and lifeguards on duty.

Local shops and restaurants are located right around the corner including: Trebeache' at Redfish Village where Sunday brunch is not to be missed, Blue Mountain Creamery where people line up for their homemade ice cream and sorbet, La Loba's Bakery where you'll find a plethora of fresh baked goods and a delicious organic lunch menu, and The Juicery offering refreshing cold pressed juices. These are just to name a few!

Bike paths are easily accessible from the neighborhood. The community itself is very pedestrian friendly with no through traffic making it a wonderful place for kids to get out and play. The relaxing, oversized pool and fitness center is located within a 2 minute walk from our home.

Pura Vida is a 1600 ft. single story cottage featuring new furnishings and decor as well as bamboo flooring throughout. The spacious living room offers a 52 inch flat-screen HDTV with Blu-ray/DVD player, Netflix and TiVo as well as a sleeper sofa.

About Lesley Sawyer

Our family is beach crazy...for years we've dreamed of owning a home at the beach and we are so thrilled to share our place with you.

We are a family of 4 from the Nashville, TN area. My husband and I each grew up coming to the Gulf every year...sometimes to Panama City, sometimes Gulf Shores or Destin. When we started our journey towards owning our own place we immediately fell in love with 30A. The scenery, the sugar white sand, the local shops and's all just perfect.

We welcome you to our home and hope you enjoy your stay.

Lesley Sawyer purchased this house in 2015

Why Lesley Sawyer chose Blue Mountain Beach

Blue Mountain Beach is what you want from a stay on 30A. The access, the prestige, the local shops and restaurants...but all of it with the avoidance of traffic and overcrowding you may experience on the eastern end of 30A or in Destin. This is paradise!

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that we have a free standing home on 30A. We enjoy grilling out on the deck and being able to walk to the pool for a dip. The kids love that there's a yard to play in and riding their bikes along the neighborhood sidewalks. There's parking for everyone, and we enjoy our neighbors, many of whom are full-time residents.

Relaxing, fun and easy stay near Blue Mountain beach

  • 5 of 5

One of the few one-story homes in the area, this house is everything we needed. Liked the layout, easy to manage kitchen and dining area for three small children. Loved the beach equipment that had everything we needed for a short or long beach-hang-out-day! We didn't swim in the pool, but if we stayed longer I'm sure we would like it, it looked clean. Our boys loved the bunk room and were especially excited about the Xbox system and games!! Thanks for sharing your home with us. :)

Loved it!!!! Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean equipped with everything we needed. The boys loved the bunk bed room. The owner answers any & all questions we had. She even informed us that the Xbox was our for repair, so we brought ours for the boys. No complaints at all. Great walk to the beach & great creamery on the way back. Would definitely stay here again.

Family memories were made!!

  • 4 of 5

We will reflect fondly on our stay at Pura Vida! What a lovely, quaint neighborhood. All the comforts of home, including the beach equipment. Very spacious common area, kitchen. master bedroom and 2nd bedroom. The bunk room is appropriate for younger family members. The owner, Lesley was responsive when questions arouse. We look forward to vacationing in the area again soon!
