Welcome to the VERY Private Blue Lupine (formerly The Inn at Blue Mountain Beach). There are 48 units in this condo, 16 on the East side, 16 on the beach front and 16 on the West side. The east and west side units are identical in size and floor plan. Our unit, 404, which is on the top floor, south end, offers the sunrise and a partial beach view from the east side (see photo from balcony).
Situated on the highest point on the Gulf Of Mexico, the gulf-front Inn is located 1 block off Highway 30A (turn onto Red Fish and then go left on Blue Lupine Way - the condo is at the end of the street) in Blue Mountain Beach, sequestered between two non-renting upscale communities and offers maximum privacy with it's private beach access and gated, covered garage. Enjoy the 50 feet atrium newly furnished and landscaped, or lounge by the gulf front pool and hot tub exclusive to guests at the Inn.

**New mattresses in the Master & Queen Guest Bedroom-December 2015
Our condominium is located on the fourth floor on the east side with lovely views. This is a three bedroom, three bath unit, which consists of one king, one queen, and two twin beds with one queen sleeper sofa, three bath unit. It is 1650 square feet with an additional 400 square feet of balcony. The layout is an open floor plan with a main living and dining area and two wings of bedrooms. The master suite has a king bed and it's private balcony, private bath with jacuzzi is on one end of the condo. The opposite end has a second bedroom with queen bed and private bath and access to the main balcony with gulf views. A third bedroom is off the side hall next to a third full bath. This floor plan offers unusual privacy for the couple with children or for multiple couples sharing the condominium. The bed rooms are carpeted and the rest is all tile. The kitchen has just been updated with new stainless steel appliances (see photos) and we have installed a new washer and dryer.
There are ceiling fans in the main living area and in each bedroom. Beach set-ups are available for rent on the beach during the summer. Or you can bring your own. You will find some beach items in the condo that have been left by others that may work for you.
The condo has high speed wireless internet access throughout the building. There is also a fitness center on the 3rd floor that has weights, elliptical trainers, riding machines and tread mills. Two gas grills are also located on the property for guests use. The pool and hot tub are gated and overlook the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. During high rental season, we have security on site.
If you're into biking, Big Daddy's bike rental is just a short distance from the condo. Petunia's rents bikes for 15 a day and 45 a week, but doesn't have the selection of Big Daddy's. Next door to Big Daddy's is a bakery and on the other side a natural food shop. Then across the street is Sally's Blue Store and they offer good bar-b-q Monday thru Fri til 2pm. Publix's is right back up the road on 98.
We are situated within five miles of Seaside, Watercolor and Grayton Beach- once again on the list of Top Beaches in the USA. There is a dedicated bike path that runs for miles along 30A. A large designer outlet shopping mall is only 15 minutes away and we are about 25 miles west of Panama City and 12 east of Destin. For golfers there is a great 18 hole course (Santa Rosa Beach Golf Club) just 2 miles west of the unit and if you really want a challenge, you might try Camp Creek. I normally play Windswept Dunes in Freeport, about 18 miles north of the beach or The Pines or The Oaks at Ft Walton Beach Golf Club, about an hour away.
Great beach, great food, great music, great art, great fishing, great shopping, great golfing and it is all conveniently located to Unit 404, Inn At Blue Lupine. Hey, did I say 'great vacation'?
We stayed at Blue Lupine last year also. This year did not disappoint! The condo was beautiful, clean and well stocked. The property is very family friendly and great for those of us with young kids.
Wonderful place...patti was fun to work with...clean, lovely, up to date, quiet, nice grounds! The description is so very accurate.
This is the third year in a row we have stayed at this complex. This was the first year we stayed in this unit. It was amazing and we fully intend on coming back next year.
We had a wonderful time. The condo had everything we could need and more. Patti was very helpful from booking to checking in. We will come back again.
We only dealt with Patti and the experience went very well. First time using VRBO, so we were very pleased with the smooth transaction. I won't go into all the details since I am sure Patti doesn't want people to expect the excellent treatment we received to be let down, but Patti was very accommodating.
The condo itself was exactly the right size for our group of 8 (3 adults, 3 teenagers, and 2 pre-teens). I was a little hesitant since the unit's master bedroom was right next to the elevator, but we never heard it. We have stayed in Blue Lupine four times now and this is the first time in 404, for the price you can't beat it and we will definitely consider it next year as long as our group doesn’t grow. The view of the gulf is not quite as nice as the other side of the building, but the surrounding scenery from the 4th floor balcony with the sound of the gulf makes for a very relaxing morning cup of coffee.
The weight room was very nice and this was the first trip that we had utilized that amenity.
Patti and the owner Jim were both wonderful to work with. The unit is spaceous, clean, beautiful and quiet. We really enjoyed our trip. The pictures are very true to form. The building is off the beaten path and quiet. We rented bikes from Big Daddy's, enjoyed snowcones at Lucille's, La Lomas Bakery has awesome scones, Donut Hole is a family fav along with The Crab Trap. We also took a 4 hour fishing trip with the help of Orlin Marler's crew - Mr. Pat and Jeremy. The fishing trip was awesome, our family caught 7 good-sized red snapper and they were tasty! Couple of things to know about the building - the pool is small and will hold 20 at a time - time it at nap time for little peeps and you'll be ok - otherwise, it's too crowded. The building has 1 grill - plan your cooking time. Lots to do and not do - your choice. Beaches were awesome and not crowded!!! Thanks Mr. Jim and Patti for an awesome time!!! Thank you for sharing your home with us.
