Overview

Blue Mountain Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Never be bored at the beach again! After enjoying the sun and surf of the most beautiful beach in the world (Blue Mountain Beach), relax on the lanai in the peaceful setting of the lush vegetation that surrounds this most private of beach resorts, vacationing in a beautifully decorated 1958 sq.ft. condo, built in 2006. Early in the morning or during the cool of evening, grab one of the complimentary canoes or kayaks that are docked beside the Dune lake to fish, simply float, or paddle to the sugary sands of the beach and ocean. For the less adventurous, call 'Captain Bob' for complimentary transport on Sanctuary's new pontoon boat across the lake (March 1-October 31, 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week & 9am to 7pm April 1-Sept 30). As you and your family choose to go & come from the beach, 'Captain Bob' is on site and just a phone call away. Once at the beach, your 2 complimentary chairs and umbrella are set up just for you! (You may bring extra beach chairs or rent more chairs at beachside, if needed). As the day draws to a close, gather by the pools to swim, relax in one of two jacuzzis, and grill your favorite dinner on one of several gas grills, against the backdrop of many waterfalls spilling into the four pools (one is heated & one is a large 'zero-entry' pool). After a relaxing pool-side meal, swim until the chill of evening draws you to the circular, pool-side stone bench surrounding the gas-powered fire pit. When the serenity of this peaceful place has rejuvenated you, spend days browsing the many quaint shops, famous restaurants, and fully stocked antique & consignment warehouses nearby. For the 'serious shoppers', Destin Commons and the Sandestin Outlet Mall is just a short drive away. For those who avoid shopping-- sidewalks, private boardwalks, and sandy beaches are great 'walking trails'. For the serious athlete, a state of the art work out and exercise room is on site. For 'workaholics', a business center is just steps away. This uncrowded 30A area along one of the most famous beaches in the world epitomizes the union of 'Love of Luxury' and 'Love of Nature's Beauty'. Once you stay here, you will never want to vacation anywhere else!

About Sheila

I work in the family business, but find my greatest joy spending time with my grandchildren at one of my two vacation homes--one on the Georgia Coast, and this one on the Florida Gulf. What a life!

Sheila purchased this condo in 2012

Why Sheila chose Blue Mountain Beach

My family and I have recently fallen in love with the picturesque turquoise-blue waters of the Gulf and its sugary white sand. No other beach can compare!

What makes this condo unique

Walking the beach with family and friends, fishing and kayaking with my grandchildren, browsing the many cute shops, eating at a variety of restaurants, and, of course, late night visits with my grandchildren around the pool-side firepit (I really learn a lot!)

Beautiful condo and grounds

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our week tremendously! The condo was beautifully decorated and we loved the balcony overlooking the water. The boat taxi to the beach was quick and enjoyable. The beach is absolutely beautiful. We rented mountain bikes and rode four days in a row on the bike trails, the trails are gorgeous. Our two favorite places to eat were the Local Catch and the Hurricane House. Both of them had great seafood and had a great atmosphere. Our vacation was awesome, and Blue Mountain Beach is a great place to get away.

Private, scenic, and uncrowded beach Spring Break in Santa Rosa/Blue Mountain!

  • 5 of 5

Of the many beach vacation spots in the Southeast we have experienced, Sanctuary at Redfish will be one of the most memorable - in a very positive way. We would love to come back to this resort. From this condo, we enjoyed the views of one of the very rare dune lakes and ocean. Kayaking, canoeing, or paddle boarding (all for free) or taking "Captain Bob's" boat to the beach were big pluses for my family! We easily stayed out of the fray of the very overcrowded Seaside and Watercolor areas. We enjoyed private beach front, included (in this unit) were daily beach umbrella and two beach chairs setup- big plus! Sheila, the owner, was wonderful and very accommodating and informative. Thanks to Captain Bob, the walk to our beach umbrella was very easy, certainly a breeze for families with very young kids. Our older kids, ages 10 and 13, really enjoyed this trip! We took nice bike rides too on the path early in the day.

If you stay at this end of 30-A, you have an easily accessible Publix and Walmart. I made the big mistake of driving to the one by Seaside/Watercolor. That area is way too crowded for us. This truly was a great escape on 30A. Looking forward to coming back to Sanctuary at Redfish! Sheila's unit was quiet (not overlooking the pool) yet had great views.

Owner's Response: Dawn, thank you so very much for writing a review. There is usually so much to "catch up on" when returning from vacation, that only the most thoughtful folks in the world usually take the time to comment on their stay. I am so glad you are among that group, and I really hope you will plan to return soon!

Lovely Spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this well-appointed condo. We seldom stay more than a week for vacations, but decided to spend more time here. The lake, with canoes, kayaks, and fishing was a great diversion when we got tired of sand and salt water. Beaches weren't crowded and the state part was just a short walk up the beach. Condo staff, Kristina, Capt. Bob, and the rest were friendly and helpful. Special thanks to the owner who was quick to share information and respond to our questions. Yep, I'd choose it again.

Owner's Response: It always thrills me when a renter voluntarily offers a good review of my property! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your two weeks there. Please do plan to come back soon. Thanks so much for your time given to evaluate and recommend my condo.

Memorable vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week at Sheila's beautiful, clean and well-maintained condo, along with our son, his wife and their two small children. The condo was set up perfectly for our family with the children's bedroom in a perfect spot for naps and earlier bedtimes. The condo itself is very elegant and tastefully decorated, and so very comfortable. Sheila was very responsive to our needs and very accommodating. The pool area was absolutely beautiful, clean and serene - such a restful place to relax in one of the many lounge chairs around one of 4 very clean swimming pools. We were there in early May and the water temperature was perfect even without being heated at that time, along with a zero-entry pool being so nice for our small grandchildren. We grilled out two nights on one of the very well maintained Weber grills, and enjoyed the gas-powered fire pit one night which was unbelievably nice. Not to mention how much we enjoyed rides with Captain Bob to the gorgeous beach, where high quality chairs and an umbrella were all set up for our use. Our family really enjoyed bicycling almost every day to restaurants and shops, which are just a pleasant ride's distance away. (Grayton Beach, Watercolor and Seaside are about a couple miles east, and Blue Mountain Beach, Dune Allen and Gulf Place are a couple miles to the west. There is a really nice ice cream shop about 1/2 mile west.) We really enjoyed bicycling to LaPlaya Restaurant, which I believe was in Dune Allen or Gulf Place, where we dined outside.

We just can't say enough about how much our family enjoyed our vacation at Sanctuary at Redfish, and actually hope to make this our family vacation spot for years to come. "Sanctuary" is the perfect name for this gorgeous place. Thank you, Sheila, for a wonderful and memorable vacation!

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Another great year in this unit at Redfish for our family of six. The unit is in great shape and the tranquility of Redfish is unmatched for a family beach vacation/retreat. We plan to be back next year and maybe sooner if our schedules permit.

My laptop went down prior to our arrival where I had the door and gate codes saved. One call to the owner and she went out of her way on a Friday afternoon to get the information to us.

Perfect for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

What a super vacation! The condo was immaculate and everything you can imagine is available. Mrs. Jones was such a delight to work with! Captain Bob was so helpful and a favorite with our kids. There were 2 families of 4 that stayed in the condo, and it was perfect. Everyone had plenty of room! We will definitely come back!
