Overview

Blue Mountain Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

It's winter on Gulf Coast, but that means spring is just around the corner. Now's the time to start planning your spring getaway, and Carl's Cabana is a great spot to ease the winter doldrums. Check out all of our reviews, both the 12 that were done online by and the 22 that were hand written by guests in the guest book we leave in the unit. You will find those in the section 'Guest Book Comments From Owner' at the end of this description section. VRBO began separating them out a while back, so check out both review sections to get the full picture.

Yahoo Travel named Santa Rosa Beach/Blue Mountain Beach as one of the 10 best beach destinations in the world for 2011 and Carl’s Cabana is only footsteps away! The untainted, sugar white sands of Blue Mountain Beach is one of only eight beaches in all of Walton County with a manned lifeguard station (during season) to add to your peace of mind.

Then there is CARL’S CABANA where you can relax, let your hair down and allow the cares of the world be carried off in the sea breezes. We have worked hard to make Carl's Cabana into a true home away from home. Stone floors and counter tops as well as original art work are featured throughout. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has new furnishings and deluxe 400+ count bed linens and plenty of fluffy towels for real sized people. There is wireless internet and HBO is featured on all TVs. The master suite has a king bed and a 27' flat screen HD TV w/DVD and an iHome clock stereo for your favorite tunes. The second bedroom has both a full and a queen bed and its own bath with an oversized whirlpool bath with shower. The living room has a sofa bed (queen), a 42' flat screen HD TV w/DVD as well as a stereo with mp3 connections. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could want. The large, private sunset view terrace is perfect for catching some rays or star gazing the night away. The deck is fully furnished with a gas grill, large dining table and warm sea breezes.

Located on Blue Mountain Rd., SOUTH of 30a, and directly across from beautiful Blue Mountain Beach, it is a perfect place for either a romantic getaway or a trip to the beach with family or friends. It is one of the rare spots that has not been overrun with commercialization located on a quiet street (with no high-rises) and a beach that's never crowded, even during Spring Break! Yet Carl’s Cabana is just only minutes from fine dining, shopping and renown golf . Within easy walking distance, there are many local restaurants, shops and services who love to cater to our guests. Southwest Airlines' service available through the Panama City International Airport (just 30 min. away) makes life even easier. But best of all, the BEACH is heaven on earth!

Our guests enjoy exclusive membership privileges to enjoy the extra large pool and workout amenities at the nearby Blue Mountain Beach Club. Since membership to the Beach Club is restricted, the pool and exercise room are never crowded.

Everything is ready and waiting for you to feel like you have come home and have found your Slice of Paradise! Please feel free to inquire through this site or call me directly or drop us a direct email at cdreifuss@aol or call me at 615-. Whatever works for you, we aim to please.

About Carl

My wife, Beth, and I live in Nashville, TN where I work in commercial real estate and Beth is an attorney. Now that we are empty nesters, we love to travel. However, for getting away and relaxing there is no place better on earth than Carl's Cabana and Blue Mountain Beach! We love going to the beach and Blue Mountain really was a unique find. It is our perfect place to kickback, relax and spend quality time with each other and our family and friends.

Carl purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Carl chose Blue Mountain Beach

Why? It is very simple, it was the area. Blue Mountain Beach still retains that small seaside atmosphere. It's quiet, a mix of private homes and condos. There are small family run business around us (we adore the ice cream shop). Carl's Cabana is a townhouse in a complex of only 8 units. And the parking is directly beside the front door. It's free of all the daily stress, just what a vacation should be.

What makes this townhome unique

I enjoy getting up early, grabbing a mug of coffee and going out for a walk along Blue Mountain Rd. It's always free of traffic and you get to meet your neighbors. Everyone is very friendly. I might walk down Blue Mountain Rd. and then go down to the beach and walk back on the sand. I also love to bike and the area is very bike friendly with bike lanes and bike paths everywhere.

Beth loves to head down to the beach with a good book and just read. The beach never gets crowded and the pictures here are of the beach at our beach entrance. You can enjoy the beach without being overrun. There are fisherman going after pompano and others gather crab at sunset.

In the evening there is plenty of nightlife just a short distance away. Great locally owned restaurants to satisfy every taste and budget. For those who want to eat in, there is a Publix just a short distance away or great take out pizza at the local Irish Pub. I know but really it is the best!. Want more nightlife or shopping? Then venture into Destin and enjoy the outlet mall and the high end shops at The Grand Boulevard. Or take in an outdoor movie at Seaside, just minutes down 30A.

We just love everything about the area and Beth has really gone overboard to create a special comfortable cocoon with everything that we need. Our guests get to enjoy Carl's Cabana, just like we keep our own home far above the standard vacation rentals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had an amazing visit and loved the condo and the community. We plan to return next year. Anyone looking for a fine dining experience should try Vintage on 98, across from Silver Sands, and Bowery on 30a was our favorite walk to place for a glass of wine and weekend music! Ladies, the nail place up the street in Redfish complex was terrific.

mom, Daughter & Granddaughter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Three ladies just getting away for a week near the ocean. We all think this is one of the most beautiful beaches we've seen. The condo was so close to the beach - a very short walk across the street, which was great. The Blue Mountain Ice Cream shop just a block away was great as well. Kind of a small town atmosphere that we liked, yet shops, restaurants and bike trails were very close. Several gorgeous beaches nearby. This unit was the perfect size for us. Carl was kind enough to email some beach restaurant options while we were here. I would return and I would recommend this to a friend.

Amazing retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect locale for a long weekend! My husband & I have been fortunate enough to stay here on a couple of occasions and could not have been more thrilled. Beautifully decorated, conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and paddle boarding...far enough away to be a peaceful retreat! Rent bikes nearby and discover other area beaches. Thank you for sharing your lovely getaway!

Blue Mountain Beach

  • 5 of 5

Was a lovely place to stay. Near great places to eat and shopping. Just steps from the beach. We were traveling with small children so it made it nice to be able to get out of the sun in the middle of the day. Many nice amenities. Would stay that again.

Cozy and close!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our quick Memorial Day getaway. It is just a minute or two walk from the beach! Condo had nice amenities and the bathrooms were really nice with large tubs. We enjoyed the upstairs patio with dinner table for our dinners. Perfect space for 4!

Spring Break Trip 2012

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our spring break trip at Carl's Cabana. This townhouse was everything it proclaimed to be and Carl makes it so easy to schedule and rent their lovely vacation home. The location is perfect as it is just across the street to access the beautiful beach. We enjoyed taking walks on the beach each morning and to our delight saw dolphins two of the days we were there. The townhouse is well furnished, very clean and has all the comforts of home. The notebook filled with all the local information you would need to find restaurants, attractions, rentals and many other vacation amenities was great! We would definitely recommend it to our friends as a place to rent to enjoy the beautiful beach area. Thanks for letting us stay in your home!

Owner's Response: I want to say thank you for such a glowing review. I am thrilled you had such a memorable trip, and I look forward to you returning sometime in the future. Beth and I want all of our guests feeling the same way when they return home. I mean, isn't that what a vacation is all about?
