Santa Rosa Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Book Early for 2017!!! We fill up quickly with repeat renters!!!!! Directly on the beach, this beautiful modern decorated beachfront condominium provides outstanding and unique ocean and beach views, both the porch and side windows all have sweeping vistas East to Panama City Beach (beautiful night lights) and West to Destin. The Condominium is situated on the second floor of a small three-story building. The second-story orientation allows a perfect perch above the shore with both beach and blue-green gulfwater of the most up-close and personal veiws of Blue Mountain Beach.

The condominium is over 1000 square feet, large bedroom equipped with two queen beds, plenty of closet and dresser drawer space, flat-screen television set with cable and a DVD, Bose wave for music. Classic 80's Unique bathroom layout provides two separate vanity/toilet areas, both share a connected tub/shower room with a small linen closet. Large living/dining area appointed with Classic Modern Sectional Sofa, two side-chairs, and a great side window facing west... sunsets are incredible from this vacation spot. Track lighting highlighting some original art above the four seat custom modern hard-rock maple dining table (7 legs). The porch! A large porch compliments the package with plenty of room and plenty of views!! Watch the dolphin and fish play in the morning! Dreamy Sand Destin/Destin lights on the edge of the horizon west at night.

This home-away-from-home is so close to the water that you can keep an eye on your gang at the beach from air-conditioned comfort in your living room. Just steps from your door you will find a abundance of shops and dining opportunities... from bike rentals to biscuits, from limes to banking is literally two blocks away. Biking, walking trails abound around this unit. A Florida State Road 30-A runs along the beach, it has a separate paved greenway path which winds along... over small bridges... past beaches (Seaside, Grayton, Santa Rosa, Watercolor, etc.) and lakes (Eastern Lake, Deer Lake, Alligator Lake, Little Redfish Lake) stringing along some of the most picturesque vistas to be had in Florida. Many of the lakes are State Natural Protected Areas, these have fun and beautiful trails (mountain bike heaven) small bridges are designed with bikes in mind these trails wind along for over twelve miles.

Neat unique shops can be found just down the road East in architecturally famous Seaside, also west 3 miles in Gulfplace/Santa Rosa Beach. Do we even need to mention the golfing (Santa Rosa Golf Club three miles away... so many more than I can list within 20 miles), fishing, swimming, sandcastle building, snorkeling, diving, or just lay on snow white sand beach... looking at crystal clear blue green water...

About Grace Daniell

We needed an escape hatch....

We love the beach, and wanted a perfect out-post, hip, fun, with a view to enjoy all year round.

Grace Daniell purchased this condo in 2005

Why Grace Daniell chose South Walton

Location, hip without being pretentious.

What makes this condo unique

Second Floor, western corner (windows two sides...not a cave condo)...and no breakfast bar either we have a bon-a-fide kitchen and a separate dining area in the front corner, dine watching dolphins...

fabulous condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

we had a wonderful time in this condo. it had everything we needed and the beach was completely awesome. blue mountain creamery is a MUST! best ice cream ever. big daddy's bike rental, a cheap fun way to ride around the area! these people are great, they deliver and pick up bikes. beach chair rental is a must! everyday we had people bringing their big huge cabana tents down and having to set up and tie down...(well some didn't tie down and ended up bending a rented umbrella) anyway, it's worth the money! he sets up and takes down each day your there. no worries, just pack your cooler and beach towel and head out to the beach, perfect! the condo is on the 2nd floor and we quickly figured out how great it was, as being on the 1st floor you can't actually see the beach from your patio. we loved this place and will definitely return.

**we did have a few issues, the beds were too soft for us, and Nicks restaurant that was recommended by so many... lets just say we never figured that one out and every local we asked said stay away from Nicks! Overall the trip was exactly what we needed and expected! thanks Grace Daniels for a fabulous stay.

We loved our stay at Blue Mountain Villas. The location is perfect, and the interior was perfect. There are two queen-sized beds in one large bedroom, and both are comfortable.

I've been renting condos on the Gulf for 30 years or so and this was one of the best experiences!

  • 5 of 5

Let me just say WONDERFUL! The condo décor is modern and eclectic, very unusual for a beach rental (just as you see in the pictures, no surprises). It is comfortable and inviting, with personal touches - like being a guest in a home rather than in an investment property. It is an older building, but I can't complain about the unit. Everything worked, it was fully stocked, and full of interesting decorative touches. The beds were very comfortable, and the linens were wonderful. The condo was clean and had new carpet. The owner provided a comprehensive list of recommendations and things to do and her restaurant recommendations were Spot ON! I highly recommend sticking to the list. We followed the list and had nothing but good meals! The location was perfect - easy to find, right on the beach, and close to restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed riding bikes along 30A and stopping at various restaurants, galleries, parks, and shops. We brought our bikes but there are plenty of bike rental shops. I've never seen so many bike rentals. There's a broad sidewalk/bikeway called the Timpochee Trail that extends about 18 miles along 30A through Santa Rosa, Blue Mountain, Grayton, Watercolor, Seaside, Rosemay and Alys Beaches. And the beach is so beautiful in this area. White sands, clear emerald green water. Great for beach walking. I've been renting condos on the Gulf for 30 years or so and this was one of the best experiences I've had. Thanks for a wonderful get away!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our visit to the Blue Mountain area very much. I just gave a 4 star rating because the building and some things were a bit outdated. We were fine with this. The condo was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Great view and nice size balcony. We rented and rode bikes to Seaside which we enjoyed vey much. Didn't get a lot of beach time due to a rainy weather pattern but it was a great beach. Is a short drive to Destin so we went there for some shopping and a movie. The owner gave some great recommendations on restaurants, we tried and liked them.

We will definitely be back!

End of Summer Trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went here for our anniversary getaway. The complex is a little dated as mentioned in another review, but it is kept up well. It has an amazing view and is close enough to bike to several restaurants and shops. We communicated several times with the owner while we were there and had no problems whatsoever. The balcony overlooking the water was a great place to eat our meals or drink a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Take the bug spray though, I think it might just be this time of year but there were a lot of flies.

The BEST Yet!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Florida for the past 6 years, staying somewhere different each time. This condo was the best yet! Right on the beach, we ate every meal on the cool shaded balcony and watched the sun go down every evening. The decor was beautifully done, well appointed kitchen and the most comfortable beds! The owner was so nice to answer any questions we had about the area, food and etc. My only complaint - our one week stay was not near long enough! Thank you for a great anniversary!!
