Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach. Steeped in a tradition of hospitality and exemplary service, we pride ourselves on providing an unmatched vacation experience.

Why Ocean Reef chose Blue Mountain Beach

Often referred to as “the town that began it all”, Santa Rosa Beach is the first established community in South Walton. Today, many of the communities that make up this majestic collection of beachfront developments are technically in Santa Rosa Beach. The most notable is Gulf Place – home to restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. Other attractions include Eden State Garden Park and the Santa Rosa Beach Golf Club. Guests seeking to spend their vacation in Santa Rosa Beach can opt for studio style condos at Gulf Place, large vacation homes with private pools near the beach or beachfront custom homes or townhomes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had 8 adults and 7 children and had more than enough room. I would recommend At Redfish for a large group. It was a wonderful house and everyone had a great time.

Great for large groups or multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving week at this house with 6 adults and 3 young children and it was a wonderful experience. The 3 levels allowed each family to have their own space yet the living/dining area on the 3rd floor was large enough for all of us to eat and engage in activities together. If you have a toddler, keep in mind that the staircases are open.

The pool was a hit with the grandkids however it was not working when we arrived. It was determined the heater needed to be replaced so we lost about 3 days of swim time, but the Ocean Reef folks were very gracious about making it right financially. The pool is a nice size, with easy access for older folks with a nice spa area. Bring your own pool toys; there were a couple boogie boards and beach chairs, but no noodles or such.

The house is located in a nice residential area just a 5 min walk to the beach. Five cars can easily park off street. Only 5 min to the Publix and 10 to the Walmart.

The beds were comfortable with nice linens (tho we had "crumbs" in one upon arrival). Good water pressure in the showers with ample and nice towels. Elevator worked great.

The kitchen had a nice convection oven and gas cooktop. The refrigerator was large with chilled water and an icemaker with an additional ice maker under-counter.

If you plan to eat out most of the time this kitchen is well appointed. Lots of plates, silverware, cereal bowls and large matched set of wine glasses. If you plan to cook a lot while you are there (we did, including Thanksgiving dinner) you should know that like all rentals it lacks a good, non-stick fry pan, tho there were adequate other size pots and pans, bakeware and colanders. No juice glasses and only a small # of mismatched water glasses. Salt and pepper shakers were the only condiments. Sooo, bring your own coffee filters, dish soap, dish scrubbers, pot holders and dish towels...they provide a couple, but not enough if you cook a lot. They did provide paper towels, trash bags, DW soap and ample TP.

We would definitely choose this rental again if coming the this area with a large group. It is uniquely suited for multiple families, is well maintained, and the rental agency was responsive during business hours. And it was a great off-season value!

Tons of space and a short walk to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 13 (and one infant) had more than enough space in this beautiful home. The location is supreme! All the greatest restaurants on 30a are within a 15 minute drive, and the walk to the beach was very doable even on the hottest days in Late July. I would recommend bring a cart to help take all of your chairs and toys to the beach. Purhaps the greatest and most surprising aspect of this vacation was the emptiness of the beach! I am not sure if schools were back in session, but we never had anyone closer than 50 yards on either side of us at the beach. This allowed us to spread out, play games, and truly have a stress free week. I think this deep part of the Blue Mountain Beach is very residential with very few rental homes so it was nice to have that kind of privacy on a public beach access. On the negative side the description of the home greatly over states the ice machines. We were expecting three ice machines but the rooftop ice machine was missing, the basement ice machine was broken and very loud (we called maintenance but they basically said it needed to be replaced which didn't happen while we were there), and the kitchen ice machine had very low output so it was good for drinks once a day. So we managed but I wouldn't rely on the convenience of those ice machines. Also, the pool was nice but due the heavily wooded area tended to have lots of bugs in it. That didn't stop us from enjoying it anyway. This house was a hit overall and just added to the excitement and fun of the week. You should rent this house if you have a big group!

Loved the location. .1 mile to beach. Beautiful on the inside with a lot of space. Huge deck on top

  • 4 of 5

We had 3 families for total of 13 people. Plenty of room. Bedrooms are spacious. There wer 2 sets of washer and dryers. There is an elevator. There is a pool table on bottom floor. Several balconies. The top floor deck is HUGE. Pics do not do it justice. There is a fridge, grill and sink up there also with part of the deck covered with furniture. The view is perfect for picture taking. The walk to the beach and to get ice crew was very short. The house has 2 grills on 3rd and 4th floor. Pool was little small but our kids loved it especially when double red flags were up and couldn't get in ocean. Had everything you would need to cook or grill out. Kitchen and living area were larger than the pics make them look. The fridges on 3 of the 4 floors came in handy also. Overall we loved it and would recommend

good customer service, nice location

  • 4 of 5

Our week's stay at "At Redfish" began a little on the bumpy side, but after speaking with David in the Ocean Reef office on Monday, most issues were dealt with speedily. The home is about 2 blocks from the beach. It has a lovely view of Redfish lake out back. The house itself could use a little TLC to update it (i.e. paint, refinishing, new dishwasher), but it was roomy and comfortable for our party of 9 adults and 3 children under 3.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Great stay. My group consisted of 5 families and 8 kids under the age of 7 and the house was spacious enough for the whole group. An icemaker is always nearby since one serves every level including the rooftop deck, which is exactly one floor higher than the elevator goes. Exit the elevator on the third floor and you'll find the great room, with a kitchen, dining room, and living room. 10 foot ceilings on every floor make the house seem even roomier than it already is. The large pool is convenient for days when 2 minutes to the beach is too far away. I'd guess that the deep end of the pool is 5 and a half feet deep rising to 3 and a half on the shallow end. The roof top deck offers a good view of adjacent Big Redfish Lake along with a token sliver view of the Gulf. On the negative side, we did see a few large cockroaches in the bathroom, and the bathrooms weren't stocked with the advertised 5 towels. However the towel situation along with a plumbing back-up and another problem with the front door were quickly handled after a quick phone call. (These problems were handled on a Sunday, which was impressive) Our bug situation wasn't reported; its Florida and the house is next to a lake, so bugs are expected. It should also be noted that the pool is mosquito central after dark, but the rooftop is a good bug-free alternative. All in all the positives greatly outweigh the negatives and I would definitely recommend this place, especially for large families or large groups.

Perfect beach home

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome house! It is so spacious, very close to the beach (about a 3 minute walk), and has a nice pool area. We did experience a few bugs, but the situation improved once the exterminator came to treat the property. Amazing views from the huge rooftop. We hope to return next summer.
