Overview

Blue Mountain Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Stay on the gulf as it used to be. A charming beach house from the 1940s with classic all-wood interior, comfortable vintage furnishings, and a family-sized screen porch next to your own private pool. It is a short, stroll down a quiet sandy road to the neighborhood beach access. We're south of 30-A and the house is about 300 yards to the beach. Once you have arrived there is no need to get back in the car.

The Big W is part of a quiet neighborhood, Blue Mountain Beach, just ten minutes from the shops of Seaside and close to the paved bike path that meanders down the length of scenic 30-A.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Big W has difinitely become a tradition in our family.

What does the W stand for? This was our second year

here, and it seems to get better with time. Everything

here just fits and this has to be the most relaxing place

on earth. I am already looking forward to next year! The

pool is wonderful, and the quietness rules! Don't

change anything.

The "Big W"

  • 4 of 5

All in all, the house is comfortable but not fancy. Close to the beach (with handicapped parking available)...I liked the house but my wife was put off by the musty odor when we arrived and the stove was hard to get used to...My only recommendation would be to paint the kitchen and living-room in brighter colors. A comment in the guest book said that it reminded them of a north woods fishing cabin...I loved the fact that there were guest books dating back t0 1996... Which left me curious about the "little girl ghost" in the backyard and where the deer-head was mounted and why all of the roosters? I would stay there again

The Big W was just right!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed at "The Big W" the week of Aug 3-10 and were very pleased with our choice of rental homes. From the moment we stepped into the front door we felt right at home. Everything was very clean, comfortable, and well-stocked (we especially appreciated the abundance of fluffy white towels in the baths!). There were even some pleasant surprises such as the pool/beach floats and the wonderful bike which I enjoyed most evenings after dinner. The Big W is full of character and everywhere you turn there's a neat decoration or conversation piece to fit the beachy, old-time feel of the house. By far the adult's favorite spot was the screened porch overlooking the pool (the children's favorite spot). We ate most meals on the screened porch and enjoyed a great deal of our time outdoors. The walk to the beach was very easy-just down the street and either left or right to the access. We found we preferred the access to the left as it was much less crowded than the public area to the right. We enjoyed several walks around the corner to the Blue Mountain Creamery for yummy ice cream. It was a wonderful, relaxing week and we would definitely return to The Big W again!

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, I'm so glad you felt at home at the Big W. We try to make it feel like home instead of a rental and I just love it when I hear that you noticed. Hope to have you and your family back next year! Take care, Tonya

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughts! I am always thrilled when our guests find everything they need at the Big W. I too like to park the car and not get back in it until I leave.

Beach Girl

This was our fifth stay at Big W. My 3 grandchildren have grown up knowing the joy of family, relaxation, and charming comforts at Big W. The owner has always been very helpful and accommodating to my family. The house is maintained well, and the private pool is such a luxury for the children.

My husband and I live on St. Simons Island in the Atlantic Ocean, but we prefer the Gulf of Mexico for its beautiful beaches and sparkling water for our family vacations.

My father passed away on June 3, so this year's vacation was also a time to reflect on his life and be together to celebrate his wonderful blessings for our family.

If you love the beach and a vintage family cottage, Big W is for you.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much and I'm so happy you've made the Big W your family's vacation home. It means a lot to me, especially since you're coming from the Atlantic coast! Wishing you all the best, Tonya

#BestVacationEver

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at The Big W. Six years apart and it was exactly as we remembered it. If you're looking for quiet, comfy accommodations with a private pool, then this is the place. Right on 30A and one block from the public beach access. We had the option to stay at a newer, more luxurious condo for less, but chose The Big W because of the privacy and convenience. Tonya, the owner, was wonderful to work with and I think our security deposit refund got home before we did. Would definitely stay there again!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Jim for your review! I'm happy you and your family had a relaxing stay and that you found the Big W as it was six years ago. We love our returning guests and hope you can come again. Best, Tonya
