Overview

South Walton Condo Rental Photos and Description

Luxury 3 BR/ 3B Condo (Sleeps 6-8) Direct beach access overlooks pool!

Our premium, luxury 3-bedroom poolside condo with direct beach access will luxuriously accommodate a family of 6 to 8. It is also perfect for three couples traveling together.

Our vacation property, D405, is a desirable premium condo at Adagio, featuring an extra private west facing, top floor corner unit with extra windows and lots of natural lighting, a gas fireplace, 10-foot ceilings with crown molding, and travertine floors throughout. This corner unit not only enjoys extra sunlight but also a superb view from the fourth floor. We have a spacious 1800 square foot three bedroom, three bath condo all furnished with king size beds, 4 flat screen Samsung HDTVs INCLUDING a 55" Samsung LED HDTV with Blu-ray DVD on the wall above the fireplace and free WIFI. You will enjoy our artistically decorated condo with antiques and designer furniture including a queen sofa bed in the living room. The gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops with marble back splashes, gas stove and separate ice maker.

A large 300 square foot balcony overlooks an 8000 square foot three-tiered pool complete with large fountain and a partial view of the ocean. It is an easy walk of less than 100 yards to a beautiful white sand beach and a second 'infinity edge' Gulf front heated pool overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico 30 plus feet above sea level.

Adagio is located on Scenic Highway 30-A in Walton County. This is a private gated community with security guard located on the Gulf of Mexico in Blue Mountain Beach, one of many quiet and relaxed seaside communities that dot 30-A. There are no high rises in Blue Mountain Beach. Local folklore believed that Blue Mountain was named by the sailors who saw the beautiful blue flowers (Blue Lupine) that covered the huge white sand dunes, and used them for navigation from the Gulf. Another interesting part of 30-A is the many coastal dune lakes that are so rare they are only found in Walton County and remote portions of Africa. This 17-mile road, referred to as the 'Scenic Corridor', is probably one of the most beautiful drives you will ever experience. We are less than 15 minutes east of Destin/Sandestin and only 4 miles west of Seaside and Watercolor.

The Adagio community is located on the quieter, western end of Scenic Highway

30-A, with 580 feet of beautiful beach with many restaurants nearby. We feature on-site property management through the friendly Adagio by Southern office which is available for any needs you may have. An 18-mile biking and walking path runs along the property and connects to nearby Watercolor and Seaside. Ask about special pricing for onsite bike rentals for our guests. Walk east or west on the beach to one of the dune lakes for fishing. We also have an Insider's Guide developed by us which we love to share with anyone who inquires about our vacation property.

About Steve Nielsen

Greetings,

This is our family vacation home and we love to share it with our guests. We keep our condo in top condition for the enjoyment of ourselves and our guests. We are northerners who discovered the 30-A beach side community and immediately fell in love with the pristine beaches and many activities available.

We enjoy discussing with our guests this unique area and share what it has to offer including the best beach in the US, great restaurants, fantastic hiking and bike trails, tennis and golf.

Steve Nielsen purchased this condo in 2005

Why Steve Nielsen chose South Walton

We are original owners at Adagio. Adagio has become the place to stay along 30-A. The beaches of the Emerald Coast are the best we have ever seen. We had our choice of units to purchase and we were fortunate to get this top floor corner unit with a partial gulf view which we believe is the most desirable poolside unit at Adagio.

What makes this condo unique

Our vacation condo is a premium top floor corner unit which feels and looks larger with lots of natural light. Our location is ideally situated enabling a partial view of the gulf.

We utilize Adagio by Southern as our on-site property manager so our guests will always have immediate service for any needs that may arise. They are available 24/7 and offer discount perks at golf courses and area attractions for our guests. Ask about special pricing for bike rentals for our guests.

Everything you would want in a beach condo and more

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and cozy condo. Very tastefully decorated with everything you need. There is a lovely view from the patio. This condo is one of few three bedrooms where you can see the gulf. The three bedrooms with three king size beds was perfect for our girl's trip. We have stayed in numerous condos at the Adagio and this is absolutely the best one!

This is an amazing place to stay. Blue Mtn is quiet and not as busy as Destin or Seaside. Great place to relax or ride a bike. Pools are super clean and plenty of chairs. Short walk to the beach from the condo. Oh, by the way, the condo is pretty amazing also. Great spot for everyone. Beds are great, kitchen is stocked and lots of casual comfortable furniture. Great find!

Early Springbreaker from Missouri

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was great on this rental. The communications from the owner were above and beyond our expectations. The location is secluded but not so much you can't get to places by bike or car. The beach was clean and the water was clear. It is in walking distance of food, souvenir shops, and a bike rental. We rented mountain bikes to experience the many trails in the surrounding forest. There is also asphalt bike paths for miles down 30A.

We will go back to this exact rental in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you CY for your great review. I am glad you discovered the many bike trails that run throughout the surrounding national forest land. This is another of the many fun and unique activities found all along 30A. We look forward to your return to our vacation condo again soon. Steve Nielsen

TENTS/CANOPIES

  • 2 of 5

I'm giving the whole property a "fair" because NO where in the description does it say that you can't have tents/canopies on the beach. I arrived to set up my canopy (because I have an infant) and there's a sign on the area as you walk down to the beach that states NO tents or canopies. This should be in the Overview part of the breakdown. The condo itself as AWESOME and we are very please. It's very well kept and has everything you could possibly need as far as utensils, etc. Steve was a pleasure to work with and was very helpful in our planning. The small detail about the NO canopies/tents should be added for those families that have little ones. I've personally been staying up and down 30A for 10 years and NEVER not been able to set up a canopy/tent. AGAIN, the condo was perfect...the ONLY complaint is the tent issue.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words about our vacation condo. We really strive to accommodate our guests and all their needs in any way possible. I am sorry the tent issue did not work out for your family. The no tent rule has always been the case at Adagio since it's inception. The rule is in place to ensure all vacationers have a good clear view of the beach. Steve Nielsen

Would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting the beaches of South Walton since the early 80s and have stayed in numerous beach houses/condos. This was my favorite by far. The condo has a great floor plan with plenty of space and is nicely decorated. It has all of the furnishings you'd expect or probably need. The balcony is enormous with very comfortable patio furniture. And the Adagio facilities are fantastic. We made good use of all the pools and the hot tub. Our kids (3 and 5 y/o) had a blast and loved everything about it.
