Santa Rosa Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 comfortably)

Accepting bookings for 2015.

This beautifully furnished condo with gourmet equipped kitchen is the perfect place to relax and have a drink or cappuccino after spending the day on one of the finest beaches anywhere.

Nestled between the Retreat and White Cliffs, on the highest point of the Gulf of Mexico the south-western view looks over the beach to the south and magnificent sunsets directly to the west. The location is superbly quiet with private homes and dunes to the west and a wide expanse of beach.

The open floor plan is furnished with two full size sofas and lounge chair with ottoman as well as extremely comfortable dining chairs and table and bar stools at the kitchen counter. The kitchen has every conceivable item including all new GE Profile stainless steel appliances, Cuisinart, Espresso machine, electric grill, mixers of all kinds. All the bedrooms and living area are equipped with remote control fans and lighting and give access to floor to ceiling glass doors overlooking the beach and western sky. Beautiful 50 inch electric fireplace in the living room.

Fisher-Price booster seat and Graco Pak-n-Play help to make baby's stay more relaxing. As well a beach umbrella and beach chairs are provided and more beach setups are available for rent on the beach in the summer.

All linens and towels are supplied and the in-unit washer/dryer makes life easy. There are four flat screen TVs, three DVDs, and a Sony surround sound stereo.

The fitness room is just down the hall on the same floor and has 3 treadmills, 2 stationary bikes, 2 stair masters as well as a full range of free weights, numerous weight machines, exercise mats etc. This location is only seven minutes by car to Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club.

The building itself houses only 48 condo units and is not only user friendly but the right size to enjoy plenty of privacy both at the beach and throughout the building. Private parking directly under the building.

We are within an easy forty minute drive from either Panama City (PFN) or Fort Walton Beach (VPS) airports or a 90 minute drive from Pensacola.

This is our home from late October till mid-April. We entertain a lot and are in close proximity to some of the best restaurants on the Emerald Coast. Come on down and stay a while. You will love it as much as we do.

About Rod Cooper

We retired from the winter ski business 15 years ago after supplying skiboots and hiking boots to some of the best ski retailers in Canada and the US. We live on a large lake with our Bernese Mountain dog just north of Newport, Vermont This is our winter home from November to May and furnished for our comfort and leisurely enjoyment. We hope you enjoy it and have a great time in the area.

Rod Cooper purchased this condo in 2002

Why Rod Cooper chose South Walton

What you'll love most about the location is the relaxed atmosphere of Santa Rosa Beach. From the magnificent sunsets to the miles of sand dune beaches this is recognized as one of the top ten beaches anywhere in the world. Fabulous fishing from shore or with a boat, top rated golf courses within a 25 minute drive, plenty of entertainment and amusement parks for the kids and fabulous restaurants just minutes away. The best part of this experience is the wonderful people you will meet in the shops, restaurants and just walking along the beach, paths and sidewalks.Truly, this is a remarkable laid back spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to use your lovely beach home. Your condo left nothing to be desired. We have already referred your home to a couple of different friends.

Great location, comfy condo

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky with the weather but had it been bad the condo is a comfy place to hang out and the complex has a gym ( which we used) . There is easy access to the beach and it's a beautiful beach ! Beach chair / umbrella rental available and great restaurants all along 30A without having to worry about to much traffic . If you want to cook Public is easy to get to . All in all a trip enjoyed by all 3 generations !

Annual Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this unit for 3 years in a row and are going back this year. We have been visiting Blue Lupine for probably 15 years and love it! Only 48 units, 3 bathrooms per unit (a must for ladies of a certain age). Fabulous beach and easy access to Publix and 30A restaurants. Beach chair/umbrella rentals available. Pleasantly and comfortably furnished. Owner is more than attentive to our needs.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo with easy access to the pool and beach. Only slightly touristy area with no chain restaurants which we loved. Publix is close by with a nice kitchen, or plenty of nice local places to eat out. Stay away from Goose Feathers though! Condo faces the west on the third floor, so sunsets in the evening. Some construction was going on on a house next door, but we could hardly tell. Beach chair rental place directly on the beach was awesome. Bike/jog path is nice and paved and goes for miles. Destin is only 15-20 minutes away to the west and Watercolor is about 10 minutes to the east - both nice to browse through.

We love Blue Mtn Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful vacation at this beautiful condo! The beach, and the water, were so pretty. The listing photos were very accurate of how gorgeous the condo is. We loved the decor! The condo was very clean and very well maintained. The owner was very quick to respond to any of our questions, and very easy to work with. The Property Manager was very professional and also, very personable. He touched base with us to make sure our stay was going well. We would definitely rent this condo again, and would highly recommend it to family and friends.

Wonderful Beach Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful condo and complex a couple of weeks ago. The condo listing and photos don't do this condo justice! It is even more gorgeous than the pictures suggest. The view from the main balcony is stunning. There is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy hanging out in the den. The kitchen is well stocked with a variety of cooking utensil, pans, etc., to make getting a meal together great! We can't wait to go back next year! Perfect condo and the complex is just the right size!
