Nice, but:

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice, clean and had most everything you need, and was a close walk to the beach. Needs new beds, they are very noisy ( not sure how else to explain it) hard to get any good sleep. Also needs a new couch. And it would be nice to have more trash bags, I think there was only 2, and we were there for 6 nights. Also only enough laundry soap for 2 loads, and you will probably need to wash towels. There were lots of towels but, 5 people and 6 nights we had to wash. Overall we had a good time.

Nice clean, great location

  • 3 of 5

The downfall is the couch seriously BAD and uncomfortable. Please get a new couch you want the people who rent to actually sit down and rest on vacation. The location is wonderful we went to the Creamery for yummy ice cream one evening. Beach access is close by just a short walk. Would rent again if the couch is better.

Beautiful house w/ beach access 200 steps away.

  • 5 of 5

Rio Mar 3 is a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath only 3 minutes from the beach. Extremely clean and fully furnished. Our group of 8 had plenty of room. Donut & ice cream shop a short walk from beach house. Sunburst Rentals delivers everything you need right to the house, also. We rented one of the wagons to help carry the chairs, umbrellas & ice chest down to the beach. Very quiet, very safe area. Recommend renting paddle boards for the water, lots of action on the last sandbar. Our group was able see a giant sea turtle and some giant schools of fish about 12ft long. Amazing time!

Paradise for a Week

  • 5 of 5

This place was just incredible. High end finishes (marble counters, memory foam mattresses, trendy furniture) just steps to the beach in an awesome location made for an incredible week for us and our friends (2 couples on the trip). Blue Mountain Beach is nestled in perfectly between Destin and Seaside (short bike ride to Seaside) and the beach here is great. The Blue Mountain Creamery is just around the corner and we loved cooking in the quadplex as well. Can't recommend this place enough and looking forward to returning in the future!

Weddin in the area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was perfect for my family of 6. We were close enough to the wedding and to ride bikes to Seaside. The house was clean and really nice. Beach really closer than it looks and is very nice.
