Blue Sky is just a SHORT WALK TO THE BEACH in the quaint town of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida just south of Scenic 30A. The Beach access is just half a block directly down the street from the home. Enjoy the day lounging on the glistening white sand beaches then retreat to the rooftop deck. The PANORAMIC VIEW OF THE GULF from the 4th floor deck is amazing. You can see all the way to Panama City and the breathtaking sunset views toward Destin. Blue Sky has a fenced- in private pool with a nearby screened in porch and grill. There is an outside shower for rinsing off chlorine or beach sand. A bicycle and kayak rental store and Blue Mountain Creamery yogurt and ice cream shop are an easy walk down the street. On a clear day, you can paddle out a short distance where dolphins will sometimes swim and jump near your kayak. Blue Sky is just off the Scenic 30A bike and jogging paths that run all the way from Santa Rosa Beach to Seaside. It's an easy drive heading east to Seaside or going west to Destin for dining and shopping. There are also shops and restaurants just around the corner from the home. You are close to all of the action, but then you can retreat to the relaxing low traffic neighborhood of Blue Mountain Beach.

This is a fabulous home and tastefully and artfully decorated! There was more than enough room to accommodate my husband and I, our daughter's family (2 adults and 3 children), and our son's family (2 adults and 2 children). There was wonderful space for gathering all of us, and lots of large space for alone time, also. The Master bedroom was huge and comfortable. It is a short walk to the beach, and the pool area is fabulous. By the end of the week, there were some problems with the pool that were being addressed as we were leaving. Certainly would recommend this beautiful home!
This house has it all. Plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. They even allow pets, so our little West Highland Terrier was able to vacation with us. The location is wonderful. It's a quick, easy walk to the beach. We couldn't be more satisfied. We plan to stay again next year!
The home was in excellent condition. The beach is a short, easy and safe walk from the home (one very lightly trafficked street to cross). The beach is lovely and uncrowded. The sand is squeaky clean. It's a great beach for families both large and small. The roof top deck is very nice: it's value would depend greatly on the season and time of day. In mid-July the evening there was splendid. Lots of fireworks -- both man-made and natural (heat lightning and sunsets)-- visible from that height. The pool was fabulous and was used at least as much as the beach and its sea were. Beach chairs and umbrella's (basic not grand) can be readily had for a reasonable price: we used Kingfish.
If you can't manage stairs, this home is definitely not for you. And the stairs out of doors, front and back, would have benefitted with some lighting. Too, considering the number of beds, there weren't enough large pots to cook with. The flatware, glass-and plastic-ware, and plates, however, were ample. The icemaker is anemic: accept the two or three cubes it offers when "asked", and be grateful. The mattress in the "Memphis" room (second floor w/ensuite bath) was soft: other beds may have had firmer mattresses. If you like outstanding ice cream, the home is well situated with respect to Blue Mountain Beach Creamery.
We found that the home worked very well for our eight adult family members. The layout is good. The main floor (second floor) is large enough with the dining living and kitchen all connected to create an enjoyable living area for all. The beach is about a block walk away along a little used side street and the beach access is at the end of the road. The pool was nice but due to cool weather not used by us. We enjoyed the crows nest on the fourth floor and watching the sunsets.
We really enjoyed this property for our vacation stay. The agency was able to accommodate our early arrival check-in time and a representative met us when we arrived to ensure the details were covered. We enjoyed the spacious living area and the Tivo TV for Thursday, Saturday and Sunday football games. The beach was a short walk down the street and the pool was spacious enough for our entire family to swim at the same time. The onsite washer and dryer were helpful and the kids were comfortable in the bunk bed room. We highly recommend the home and agency for your next vacation stay.
We just got back from a week long stay at Blue Sky House. The home is spacious and beautiful. I highly recommend staying here. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and the beds are super comfortable. The 4th floor deck is wonderful for watching the sunset. We were less than a block from the beach.
Only downfall is there is new construction next door as well as across the street so we were woken up at 7 am EVERY MORNING to loud hammering, etc. so no sleeping in which was a bummer.
All in all, we had a wonderful vacation!
