About the property

You will be pleasantly surprised by all the 'extras' in our home that you would not normally find with other rentals.



Our house is situated in beautiful Blue Mountain Beach, Florida in the heart of Scenic Highway 30A just 10 miles from Destin to the west and 15 miles from Panama City Beach to the east. 30A is a scenic drive along the emerald coast that is speckled with unique artsy beach communities, each with their special flare and appeal. Seaside hosts weekly concerts and movies and has eclectic shops and great local restaurants. If you travel further east on 30A you will reach Alys Beach which also hosts weekly outdoor concerts and movies. Further east is Rosemary Beach, which again has unique shops and eateries. A 22 mile paved walking/jogging/biking trail extends the length of 30A and passes beautiful beaches, coastal dune lakes, and picturesque beach towns. Bike/kayak rentals, restaurants, and shopping are all within walking distance of the house. We are within a few hundred yards of the sugar white sands and emerald waters that have been voted one of the top 10 beaches. Beach access (with parking, shower, and restrooms) is a one minute drive or short walk or bike ride.



Good Day Sunshine is a gorgeous 3 story beach house directly across the street from the Blue Mountain Beach Club pool and exercise room and just blocks from the sugar white sand and emerald water of the beaches of South Walton.



The first floor offers a large bedroom with queen bed, spacious closet, full-size bathroom with tub, travertine floors, 32' flat screen HDTV with blue-ray disc player, and XBOXs - PlayStation 3 and loads of games to choose from.



Traveling up the newly installed wood stairwell brings you to the second floor with newly ceramic tiled floors, a well-equipped gourmet kitchen with smooth cooktop stove, microwave, full-size refrigerator with ice-maker, granite countertops, and breakfast bar. This floor also offers a dining table with seating for 4, a pull-out full-size sleeper sofa, 42' HDTV, PlayStation 3 with over 100 games.



The balcony is likely where you’ll spend a fair amount of time so we made sure we have seating for 4 and an umbrella to relax and enjoy dinners, have an evening cocktail, or just soak up the sun.



Moving up to the third floor offers two additional bedrooms and a full-size bathroom. One bedroom offers a queen-size bed, spacious closet, a 32' HDTV, blu-ray disc player, and Xbox and plenty of games. The other bedroom offers a king-size bed, spacious closet, a 32' HDTV, blu-ray disc player, and Xbox. Both bedrooms on the third floor have glass sliders that open on to a balcony with beautiful views of the beach club pool and beyond. Also on the third floor is a fabulous bathroom with travertine floors, granite countertop, and large glass walk-in shower. All rooms in the home are freshly painted, and newly furnished and decorated.



From our balcony you can easily see the swimming pool or enjoy the views of our beautiful sunsets to the west.










The exterior of the home offers a brick pavered driveway and patio, outside shower. We welcome you to help other families by utilizing our "storage bin" that contains beach gear and pool toys that everyone has donated. The exterior of the home is newly painted and landscaped nicely with palm trees, rose bushes, and flowering shrubs .



The Village of Blue Mountain Beach is a hidden community that is quiet but contains all you need within our gated neighborhood.

*Large Swimming Pool with fountains

*Exercise Room

*Bathrooms and outside showers

*Designated Barbeque Grilling areas



Good Day Sunshine is a paradise oasis just waiting for you!

About The Owner

We reside in Indianapolis, IN where we work in the areas of law enforcement and education. Owning a vacation home along Scenic Highway 30A has been a dream for us for many years. We have been vacationing in the beautiful beaches of South Walton for the past 10 years with our children, Mandy and Alex, and we had always hoped that one day we could own property of our own in this splendid vacation destination. Now that our dream has come true, we are more than happy to share our great little beach getaway with you. Sincerely, Mark and Lisa Stephens.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose South Walton

Scenic Highway 30A is a charming community comprised of artsy little beach towns. The area pulled at our heart strings from the moment we stepped foot on the sugar white sand beaches, browsed the shops and art galleries, dined in the delectable local restaurants, and biked the beautiful trails past dunes and coastal lakes. Blue Mountain Beach is a quiet, quaint community home to shops, restaurants, and bike/kayak rentals and nearby Grayton Beach, Watercolor, and Seaside. The house is situated in a quiet little village with lovely landscaping, brick streets, sidewalks, and a roundabout, and it's just across the street from the beach club with access to the large pool and exercise room. It's a short stroll to the beach by foot or bike. You're sure to enjoy your stay in this great community.

What makes this house unique

As the owners, we use this home from time to time and are more than happy to share it with you. We hope and expect that you will treat the home and it’s furnishings with care and respect, so that in the future others will be able to enjoy their stay here. Our home is comfortable, clean, and conveniently located to beach accesses, bike/kayak rentals, dining, and shopping. Once your feet feel the soft sugar white sand, you smell the salty air, and you see the natural beauty preserved along 30A you will fall in love and want to return year after year. The easy-going, carefree 30A lifestyle is catching, so beware!

Another Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love this property! This is our second time here and it's perfect! Enough room for my husband, child and mother to have our own space, close to the pool and nearby many great restaurants. Mr. Stephens clearly takes care of his property and is very attentive. Another great vacation!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house that was clean and comfy! The king bed was fabulous and my daughter loved the queen room on the first floor with her own bathroom. The kitchen meet our needs of cooking easy meals such as pancakes, eggs, sandwiches and more. My boys loved all the video games and it was so nice to have Netflix to watch in the evenings. There are stairs to contend with, but this was not a problem for us. The beach is amazing and never crowded. I would recommend another arm chair or something similar as it was difficult for our family of 5 to sit together in the tv room with only a love seat and one arm chair.

The owner is very friendly and easy to get in touch with if you have any questions. Overall, a great stay and if we venture to 30A again, we will certainly keep this house in mind.

Good Day Sunshine

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this home! It had all the comforts of home and then some extra. The owner of this home was more than helpful and very quick to respond to any of our questions. The home is very clean and well equipped for a very convenient stay away from home! The beach of Blue Mountain is amazing! I recommend this house and area as a great place to truly enjoy a family vacation! We will return when possible and rent the same place.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing vacation at Good Day Sunshine. The house was beautiful with all the conveniences of home. Very close to the beach and restaurants. The pool was conveniently located right across the street. The kids loved the pool just as much as the beach. The owners were very responsive and helpful with any questions we had. We will definitely vacation here again!
