LUXURY GULF FRONT CONDO

Blue Mountain Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, sleeps 8

Gorgeous gulf front condo in the most appealing resort on Scenic 30A. Views of the beach and rare coastal dune lake from balcony and living room. Gourmet kitchen. 10 foot ceilings. Over 2,200 square feet. Underground parking, gated entrance. 3 pools. Exercise facility. Clubhouse with movie theater, virtual golf. Complimentary beach service (umbrella and chairs) from March thru Oct. Every bedroom has its own private bath. The Living Room and Master have wide screen HD televisions. TVs and DVD players in every room. Wi-Fi high speed Internet connection. 370 sq. ft. balcony. Sanctuary by the Sea is that rare condo development on the Gulf that respects the natural beauty and open spaces of the Emerald Coast. Set on 23 acres of mostly undisturbed dunes and native flora, with over 650 feet of pristine beach, this truly is a “sanctuary” from the over populated, overbuilt complexes that crowd the coast

About the Condo: Spacious and very comfortable. Huge kitchen with everything for the gourmet cook. Travertine floors, marble counters. The Master and Queen beds are feather tops. The Master bedroom and bath are larger than most luxury hotel rooms. The Master has both a Whirlpool Tub and a walk-in shower with a marble bench.

Best of all are the views. Most guests spend hours on the large balcony soaking up the sun, drinking wine or eating at the balcony dining table or just staring at the dunes and the sea. We supply some books for beach reading. Two complimentary beach bikes for your use.

About the Resort: Sanctuary by the Sea is one of the most luxurious resorts on 30A. It sits on 23 acres of the most beautiful natural surroundings in Florida. All of the amenities, from the 3 pools, the 2 hot tubs, outdoor grills, fire pits to the exercise facility, movie theater and virtual golf room are all free to our guests. Underground parking is not only convenient but comfortable (no hot cars). The 30A bike path is on the edge of the property. You can kayak and fish in the lakes and ocean. Some of the finest restaurants in north Florida are moments away. The best location in all South Walton. Two miles west of Seaside and Seagrove Beach. Ten minutes from Grand Boulevard (Sandestin). Walking distance to Grayton Beach State Park (100 yards) and the Red Bar. The best of both worlds: A peaceful retreat close to great restaurants and shopping.

About the Owners: Karen and Paul bought this condo, unfurnished, in 2009. They have been coming to South Walton and Scenic 30A since the late 1980's. They plan to retire there. Paul is a law professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta and Karen is a personal assistant.

Far Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently spent a week in this gorgeous condo, and we couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. The photos don't do this property justice. It's very well stocked with everything you need from paper and cleaning products to beach toys and snorkeling gear. Our party of 7 had plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was a lot of fun to cook in with a gas grill and griddle built into the range. There were plenty of plates, utensils, flatware, and even some decent knives. We made steaks and seafood for dinner on the grill.

Paul and Karen were very easy to work with; they responded promptly to emails and provided very helpful information on local restaurants. We had a very good meal at Cafe Thirty A in Seagrove.

The beach access was easy and convenient, but the walk can be weary when saddled with a bunch of gear. All you really need is a towel as chairs and umbrellas are provided for you. The beach is very wide and wasn’t overly crowded as it’s private. It has the fluffy white sand and turquoise water which are the hallmarks of the area, very beautiful.

We visited Destin (blech, a bit on the obnoxious side) and Seaside (better, but yuppie town). The Barefoot BBQ stand in Seaside is remarkable even if overpriced, but then this is a tourist spot so you have to expect that.

We really enjoyed our trip. My advice is to travel lightly as this condo has way more than you expect. We'd come back in a blink!

Great condo, quiet location

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is fabulous! Nicely appointed, very clean and spacious. It is also extremely quiet. When you are inside, you hear almost nothing outside. Great for sleeping later! We have stayed at many places along 30-A, but this complex is our favorite so far. It is a bit of a hike to the beach compared to other places, but once there, you certainly have plenty of room. The beach service guy really enforces the private beach part! The appliances all worked really well. The A/C kept us cool, unlike other places we have stayed. Ceiling fans in all bedrooms is a plus. Supplying dishwasher and washing machine soap or detergent is a nice touch. Lots of towels and wash cloths. The underground parking is great in the hot summer. The pools have nice patio areas with grills if needed. We didn't use them but I'm sure they worked fine. The property is kept very clean.

Great condo - Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have stayed at SBTS for 2 years now. Vacationed in several other homes/condos around the Destin area over the last several years. This condo ranks at the top. It was very clean, had just about everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking meals and made us feel right at home.
The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for all of our family members to move around easily.
The sunset views from the balcony were amazing and I enjoyed being able to see both the pool and ocean while eating breakfast/lunch outside.
The owners were very easy to deal with and I'm sure would have been helpful had we had any issues. However, we didn't have one issue arise during our stay - so that was never tested. :-)
The lake near the condo is an added bonus - giving a peaceful area for my family to use our kayak skills when the ocean was a little too choppy.
All in all a great vacation condo - we would definitely book this unit again.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here 2 weeks ago...and it was AMAZING! We loved it so much we contacted the owners to find out if we could stay longer but unfortunately for us, it was rented out. Next year we are planning to stay 2 weeks. It was pure heaven! Access to the pool and beach was easy. Our 3 year old son especially loved the zero-entry pool. He preferred the pool to the beach which made me sad...but atleast he was happy!

The condo was amazing too! Spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything that you need is there from pots to pans to a wonderful wine fridge. Perfect!

If you are looking for quiet and relaxing..then this is FOR YOU! The beaches are NOT crowded. The Pool is NOT crowded. The complex is perfect! Bonus with the chairs and umbrella service too!

Location, location, location---and this definitely has it! Whether you want to shoot over to Seaside, Alys Beach or Rosemary Beach--those are so close that you can ride your bike to OR if you want to go to crowded Sandestin to shop at their fun stores or take the kids to the Sandestin Square--then this is the place to stay! Easy to get to everything!

If you can't tell--we LOVE this place. Thanks to Paul and Karen for their hospitality. We can't wait to come back next year!

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a nice place to spend a relaxing week on the beach. We could not have been more pleased with the Sanctuary by the Sea complex and especially this condo. It was exactly as advertised (actually better) and in such a nice location. We loved eating breakfast and lunch on the balcony overlooking the pool and ocean. We saw dolphins swimming up and down the shore and even kayaked among them. There are mostly private homes along this stretch of beach rather than high-rise condos or hotels, so the atmosphere is very relaxing. All instructions and communications with the owners went very smoothly. I would highly recommend this luxurious unit and complex to anyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious, beautifully furnished, luxurious condo. The gourmet kitchen was very much appreciated as we love to cook and we also took advantage of excellent restaurants in the area (Cafe 30-A and Cafe Tango). This was our second early November vacation in this condo and both times we've been blessed with cool mornings, warm sunny afternoons, beautiful sunsets, and walks on the pure white sand. This is a wonderful time of the year to visit the Gulf Coast, especially in such a beautiful condo.

Located in South Walton Beach, aka SoWal, aka Scenic 30A, aka Santa Rosa Beaches. Some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida, the 30A area includes the noted villages of Seaside, Watercolours, and Rosemary Beach. No building on 30A can be higher than 50 feet which contributes to the area's low density and natural beauty. Our condo sits right on the Gulf and between two rare coastal dune lakes. (Do not confuse us with Sanctuary at Redfish. A nice resort close to us but it does not have direct access to the beach like we do). Kayaking, fishing, hiking, and shopping are favorite local activities. And of course, swimming in the clean waters of the Gulf.

The best location in all South Walton. Two miles west of Seaside and Seagrove Beach. Ten minutes from Grand Boulevard (Sandestin). Walking distance to Grayton Beach State Park (100 yards). The best of both worlds: A peaceful retreat close to great restaurants and shopping.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, wildlife viewing, miniature golf
