June 2010 Family Vacation
Our family of 6 stayed in the Blue Mountain Beach house in June 2010, and we absolutely loved it! The community is now on our list for future vacations and even possible retirement, which says a lot because although we visit Florida often, this was the first place that we would consider living. The community is nestled between Destin and Panama City Beach, but feels worlds away from the hectic, crowded vibes in those towns. Quiet, natural-looking, friendly, artsy - it really has it all if you are looking for a little peace, and the beach is as beautiful as any I've seen, and easy to get to, being literally straight down the street (by car or bike trail) from the house. There was a Publix and a Walmart within a few minutes to the North, and numerous cute beach communities with shops, including Blue Mountain, plus several others just to the East and West. FYI - bike riding is big here, with great trails connecting the communities, and there are a couple of bike rental shops within maybe 3-4 blocks of the home (with delivery and pick-up available at your home). If doing bikes or street-ready golf carts, it's a good idea to book in advance of your stay.
As for the house, it was adorable. We didn't know quite what to expect from the pictures, but they really don't do it justice. It was the most unique home we've stayed in, and the neighborhood was full of others just as unique. Our kids loved the three-floor architecture and the funky feel of the place, and we were very pleased with the cleanliness, furnishings, and extras like games, magazines, books, etc. If there was one issue, it would be that the downstairs (master) bedroom can get very cold when keeping the rest of the home pleasantly cool, but there were extra blankets and it worked out fine for us.
We will definitely be back to Blue Mountain Beach for regular visits. Thanks, Walter! (btw, Walter was very responsive and easy to work with, and readily accommodated us for a short-stay at the tail end of our vacation.)
