4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10
Built in 2007, Blue Marlin hosts some of the best amenities the area has to offer. This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home comfortably sleeps ten people and has a ton of great features. There are beautiful hardwood floors throughout the home as well as stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and tiled showers.
Enjoy the great views Blue Marlin has to offer from the second and third floor balconies. This home is a true gem, possessing one of the only views of the ocean of all the other properties in this community. Enjoy the local art that is used to decorate the house throughout. You will also be just a short walk to a private subdivision pool and fitness center.
On the first floor you will find a full kitchen, a living room with a flat screen, and a dining room. There is also a grill on the rear deck for you to use! Just up the stairs on the second level you will find two beautifully furnished queen en-suites. Finally, the third floor has a queen room and the bunk room (containing two sets of twin bunk beds), which share a bath.
Blue Marlin is a quick, 7 minute walk from the pristine beaches of 30-A! The beach access is only a block and a half away and has parking for cars. Clean, full bathrooms are open with showers and a large deck overlooking the beach. Best of all, the beach itself is pristine and uncrowded.
The area offers local restaurants, unique art galleries and shops, and a 22 mile path that runs along the coastline. You are also ten miles from Destin, where you can enjoy Destin Commons, Silver Sands outlet mall, movies and night life. Take advantage of the numerous hiking and horseback riding opportunities in Point Washington State Forest right across the street!

Great family beach trip!
We really had no complaints. Great place, clean, well-maintained. We loved the pool. We are extremely pleased and look forward to another visit.
Had a great experience in Blue Mountain, great restaurants that are walking distance away (Sushi and Irish Pub) and the ice cream shop (BMB Creamery) was a must have as hot as it was down there. Got a great tan with a host of other beautiful people on the best beaches I've ever been to state side. Emerald green water that varied from dark blue to green as the depths change. Second sand bar is a short swim. I'll be back again. Sand Dollar One made the trip very easy and convenient with timely responses, great recommendations, and accommodating services :)! We will be back to see you guys again next time.
Really enjoyed it
Happy to write a review when I have a great experience. Home was very nice and well maintained, layout was nice for me and my family. The transaction was easy, no stress. Didn't have to drive by and office or wait on someone to check us in as code was provided to us. Community was nice, pool was great. Walk to beach was easy and needed with how much we indulged in the great food in the area. I am not usually the type to revisit a vacation spot but I can definitely envision us coming back here.
Blue Marlin Review - June 2 through June 10, 2017
The property manager was very unhelpful.
The vacation rental was clean.
I was somewhat unhappy with the location.
I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
We didn't actually rent the Blue Marlin, we rented another property one street over, however, when I called to confirm when the second payment would be coming out, I asked for them to double check they had the correct bank account numbers. This is when I discovered someone who used to work at sand dollar one had canceled our reservation with no explanation given. At this point, we were offered our money back or the Blue Marlin, it was too late to find another place so, based on the description of the Blue Marlin on the website, we decided to take it. The Blue Marlin did not have two king beds, like the website described in three different places, it had full beds which didn't leave enough room for my husband to sleep with me and my two small children, therefore spending his entire vacation sleeping on the couch. My sister stayed in the back room on the second floor which was filled with bugs (also 3rd floor) all over the toilet, sink, and tub, she had to use someone else's bathroom the entire trip. The outlets in three of the four bathrooms did not work. The grill took my husband 45 minutes to get lit because it was so old and didn't work properly. The bikes we were promised would be delivered apparently were not delivered. There were bikes there but after calling to let sand dollar one know that two of them were broken they said they didn't have bikes delivered and those must have just been the owners bikes. I did call on Monday to let sand dollar one know what was going on, it was Ryan who I had talked to every time I called, he sent someone out to deal with the outlets, the bugs, and the grill. The outlets did work after the repairman left, he said he sprayed for bugs, however, they were still there until a couple days before we left. He replaced the grill because the other one was so old and clearly didn't work. Ryan also had bikes sent down that we could use. When I told Ryan about the bed situation he just simply said, yes the website did say two king beds.
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
It was nice.
This was an awesome house to stay in during our awesome vacation! The entire family had a great time at the beach and at all the local restaurants. We cannot wait to come back!
