The Perfect 30A Beach Rental Vacation Destination -- Blue Mountain Breeze

About Blue Mountain Beach

Luxuriously casual is a great way to describe your private beach vacation experience at Blue Mountain Breeze. You won’t find high-rise condos blocking your beach view here in Blue Mountain Beach! What you will find is miles and miles of the Florida panhandle’s world-famous sugar-white beaches and glowing sunsets that will put your mind and soul at ease. The private beach houses in this intimate 30-A community offer all the comforts of home paired with upscale (or casual) restaurants, fun activities and other amenities.

Blue Mountain Breeze is less than a skipping stone’s throw away from the turquoise waters of Florida’s famous Emerald Coastline, so you and your companions will be able to enjoy as many morning strolls through the cool, powdery, white sands as you wish. While away your days in this centrally located community relaxing at local restaurants and boutique shops, such as Marie's Bistro or For the Health of It. Everything you need is within a short walk or bike ride from your beach vacation getaway in this treasured section of Blue Mountain real estate.

Blue Mountain Beach Feedback:

Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Grayton Beach...the beach towns along 30A are idyllic and serene, yet none still so connected to that Old Florida charm as Blue Mountain Beach. With unmatched class and quiet convenience, those who have enjoyed a vacation at Blue Mountain Beach offer nothing but praise for the community:

“I have been traveling to the area for over 20 years now, and have settled on Blue Mountain Beach as one of my top two spots. I have rented many places over the years, but tend to be loyal once finding a place that I really like. I can say without a doubt that Blue Mountain Breeze is one of those places that I would want to return to year after year. As stated in the title, this place is a fantastic value.”

Ty L.

“LOVE LOVE LOVE the location and décor!!! My husband and I celebrated our 27th Wedding Anniversary in Blue Mountain Beach in Ray’s wonderful home. We looked online at several places to stay and chose this one because of the location and privacy. The location was perfect...a very short walk from everything...the beach, restaurants, bakery, shops and yet tucked away in a peaceful little neighborhood."

About Ray Ivy

Have you ever dreamed on living on the Florida Gulf coast? Me too! So we made it happen in 2005 when I was chosen by The St. Joe Company to function as their Special Projects Construction Manager. Our team built many of the higher-end homes in WaterColor and WaterSound. We built our vacation home, Blue Mountain Breeze, finishing construction in early 2009 and lived there for several years. Our goal is to move back to this wonderful area and home at some point down the road.

Ray Ivy purchased this house in 2009

Why Ray Ivy chose South Walton

Watching the amazing sunrises and sunsets...falling asleep to the sound of the surf with the breeze blowing on your face...grilling fresh seafood on the deck with family and friends...you can't put a price on these things.

We live sustainably and used our knowledge and experience to build this home to be comfortable, healthy, safe, durable and energy efficient. Our home uses geothermal energy for heating and cooling. Extra care was taken to make our home very strong and resistant to high winds. Solar panels will be installed on the home one day that will generate most of the electricity used.

Like many others, I grew up coming to the Florida Gulf Coast on vacations almost every summer. In 2001, we were fortunate to be able to buy Lot 6 in Sandcastles by the Sea. In 2008, through hard work and careful planning, we were able to fulfill a dream and build Blue Mountain Breeze.

30-A is a fantastic area because it is convenient to everything but far enough away avoid big crowds. Destin is slowly creeping eastward but Point Washington State Forest will always function as a buffer to minimize commercial development. Plus the building height restriction wisely instituted long ago by Walton County prevents high rise condos and keeps the area feeling a bit more like Old Florida. Blue Mountain Beach is relaxed, laid-back and friendly, with many great restaurants and tons of other amenities. It's a beautiful place to live and vacation.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! Steps from the beach, sip coffee on the deck watching the kids play in the pool or common area or cul-de sac, walk or bike for delicious local food, relax with sea breezes on your face, listening to the surf and the seagulls.

Many of our guests tell us they prefer to deal directly with us instead of going through a property management company. We strive to offer friendly personalized service, attention to detail and accessibility that might be a bit lacking with a larger company. We place a big emphasis on building long term relationships with our guests and do all we can to go that extra mile to make sure your stay with us brings back happy memories.

Blue Mountain Breeze is in an easily accessible, central area with almost everything you need within walking/biking distance or a very short car trip. We're within a block of Hwy 83, a main connector between 30-A and 98, so if 30-A traffic is heavy (like much of the time during peak seasons) you have alternative route options.

Our beach home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac south of 30-A along with 8 other homes. The round pavement area is an ideal place for the kids to play, as there is little traffic. Plus, you can keep an eye on them from the porch.

Our new pool is located just below the main deck, so it's easy to watch the young ones play from there as well.

Many of our guests have vacationed at various spots along 30-A and they tell us the beach is not as crowded here. We like to hear that and hope you do too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and loved Blue Mountain. It is our first stay here and we will definitely return. Thank you so much for your hospitality. The beach cart was a tremendous help and we found the house great for our family.

Very well maintained property in Blue Mountain Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 (10 adults and 4 children). There was ample room and we never felt like we were on top of each other. The beach is a short walk away and the pool provides nice playtime when you don't feel like going to the beach. The bikes are nice for cruising (we went in July so I recommend evening rides). We had a minor issue and the owner was very responsive and took care of it ASAP. Very easy communications. Without a doubt one of the best rentals I've had. Can't wait to go back! Thanks for everything, Ray!

Loved the Blue Mountain Breeze beach house. Just a short walk to the beach and not so congested like some other areas we have been to before. We had 10 adults and 3 kids, who loved the pool. They also rode the bikes to the ice cream shop several times. Also appreciated the beach chairs, floats and the wagon to get everything to the beach. So nice having all the bunk beds and the sofa bed made it perfect for our large group. The only suggestions I have is to supply more towels and sheets. We just didn't have enough bath towels and no top sheets for the blow up bed and sofa sleeper. Other than those minor things we enjoyed the house very much! Beautiful area!!!

We loved Blue Mountain Breeze ...great vacation home for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 consisting of three families (6 adults, 3 teens, & 5 kiddos) thoroughly enjoyed our week at Blue Mountain Breeze. We have been vacationing off of 30A since 2013 and this house was by far the most accommodating and economical for a group our size. The common areas of the home (kitchen, dining, living room) are very large and open which allowed all of us to intermingle without feeling crowded. Other attributes which we liked:

- Covered parking for (2) vehicles

- Privacy as house is on cul-de-sac

- Huge wrap around deck and outside bed for lounging

- Private pool

- Bikes

- Close proximity to beach

A huge thank you to Ray Ivy, owner, for his outstanding customer service and sharing his "funky- beachy cool- personalized home" with the Flores, Fields, Cardona gang.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine (4 adults and 5 kids) had a great time at Blue Mountain Breeze. The house is very large with plenty of beds and space to spread out. When the weather did not cooperate and forced indoors, we never felt on top of each other. The pictures make the beach seem farther than it actually is. It is a very easy walk to the beach access. Our family enjoyed nightly trips to the ice cream shop just around the corner. While there were very minor issues, the owner addressed them as quickly as anyone can reasonably expect. The owner is a pleasure to work with. We hope to return next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much, Craig, for sharing your experiences and thoughts with future guests. We do try extremely hard to make sure all our visitors have an exceptional, worry-free time during their well-earned vacations. Issues sometimes pop up, that's inevitable, but we do our absolute best to address them quickly and efficiently to minimize their impact. Your group was outstanding! We appreciate your remarks and hope you will return to The Breeze soon for more beach time, hopefully with better weather:).

Perfect 30A Beachhouse

  • 5 of 5

My family (4 adults and 5 kids) just completed a wonderful beach vacation at Blue Mountain Breeze. We were specifically looking for 4 bedrooms, a pool, petfriendly, short walk to the beach. This house has all that and more! We have 5 kids between the ages of 1 and 6 and we're a little nervous about what the pool set up was. It's really perfect; the large deck is on the main floor and has a gate which leads down stairs to the pool which is fenced. So no chance of the kids getting into the pool without supervision.

The house has a good layout, a well stocked kitchen, was very clean and perfect for us. Ray, the owner, was a delight to work with from the beginning of the renting process until the end of our trip. Highly recommend!

Blue Moutain Breeze is an excellent choice for larger groups! Ray (the owner) gives the best customer service and worked with us and our large group at any given moment! The beach is a short walking distance, the pool is a nice break for those that wanted to stay in, the kitchen is Spacious for cooking needs, the bedrooms and bathrooms were well spaced out, and everything was very clean. I highly recommend this house!
