• Second floor offers our guests a spectacular gathering place with a beautiful dining table with seating for 12, and 4 counter top stools, seating 16 for meals. The kitchen is loaded with cherry wood cabinets that contain all you need to prepare meals. With another 60 inch LED Samsung TV, you can imagine part of the group visiting in this space watching HGTV while the others are downstairs watching their favorite sports team. There are also two comfortable reading chairs located in the gathering space. The second bedroom is on this floor with a queen bed, 40-inch TV and bathroom.

• Third floor offers a Master Bedroom with a king bed, 40-inch TV, reading chair and double sink bathroom. The fourth bedroom offers 2 queen beds, 40-inch TV, reading chair and bathroom.

• Stairwell to Heaven begins here as a spiral staircase leads our guests to the large rooftop deck for sunrises, sunbathing, Gulf peekaboo, sunsets and stargazing, along with comfortable Adirondack chairs for relaxing, reading and talking with your family and friends.

• Beach access is approximately 3 block walk and has restroom facilities. Six beach chairs & two umbrellas are available at the home for your convenience. The beaches in this area are among the most beautiful with the high dunes, gorgeous beach front homes and a secluded area to the east. The Swimming pool is located on the Thirty-blu property and has seating, patio and gas grills available for cooking.

• All together or private, 30Blu offers the spaces to gather family and friends for meals, talking and entertainment, but also offers the space for your own privacy to read, sleep, watch TV or just relax.

Great week at a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was beautiful! The location was great! Each day we walked a few blocks to the beach, a block to the Mountain Creamery for ice cream, or sat out by the very nice pool. Right on 30 A where you are minutes from shopping, restaurants and gorgeous views. We were especially fond of the awesome dining table where our whole family of ten could enjoys meals together. And the rooftop sitting area where we enjoyed the view and many late night conversations. Great experience!

Gr8 Birthday Celebration September 1-8, 2017

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time strolling and relaxing on the magnificent quartz "sugar sand" beach , relaxing around the pool, watching beautiful sunsets from the rooftop, biking , cooking on the deluxe gas grill, and thoroughly enjoying our "Stairway to Heaven" townhome.

Our 10, ranging in age from 2 to 66 years, were easily accommodated very comfortably with room to spare, most meals were "eat in" and the few restaurants we dined at very tasty and pleasant. There is only one ice-maker but we found extra ice easily at the next door convenience store and plenty of room in the freezer. The extra refrigerators in the bedrooms also came in handy.

Sandy responded quickly to the only problem when the wifi stopped working. A simple unplug for 1 minute and re-plug fixed the issue without further problem and the wifi speed was quick for our needs. Cable reception was flawless throughout the many TV's.

We met friendly, helpful neighbors and other guests, and noticed a crew performing some HOA renovations without any effect on us. Despite warning of Irma's potential weather impact we had exceptionally beautiful weather our entire time.

We all felt perfectly located to a dream vacation for an important birthday celebration week. One which has given us treasured memories and hopes for future ones to come.

Beautiful home, well maintained

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The home was clean and well maintained and the owner was very responsive and allowed us to check in a few hours early. We loved the dining room table for our big group to eat together in comfort. The only reason we didn't do 5/5 was due to slow wifi and a little excess noise due to construction in a neighboring unit. Since we have an 11 month old who sleeps during the day it was slightly burdensome but manageable with our noise machine. Overall would definitely recommend this property to others and would come again and next time won't bring work with me. As others have said, there are lots of stairs so be aware of that when booking. In retrospect, we prob should have brought baby gates with. Also, the rooftop didn't have a table like we were hoping but that didn't detract from our stay.
