Blue Mountain Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The sight of the Gulf with its emerald waves will call you to cross the street and find the little used public access stairs down to the wide sugar sand beach. After a relaxing swim or stroll you'll find a warm, inviting home built and fully outfitted for easy beach living. Blue Mountain Beach is small beachfront community, one of the fun and funky jewels that are the towns strung along county road C-30A. This scenic little track winds through lush pine-forested dunes, past spring fed lakes and gulf vistas. Check out Dune Allen, Grayton Beach, and Seaside, each just a short hop away and each with its distinct offering of shops, restaurants, galleries, parks, cultural events, and yes, more beaches.You will not see a high rise anywhere. Back in Blue Mountain Beach you'll find just about anything you need among the little shops and businesses scattered about. Need serious groceries? There's a Publix market 5 minutes away, and the very finest of fresh seafood markets at Goatfeathers, one mile away.

Back at the house enjoy the gulf view and it's breezes as you look out from one of the two front porches; one huge with dining and seating areas and the other smaller, just off the master bedroom. Or hang out on the back deck with its quiet breakfast spot just off the kitchen. Enjoy the new sound system and flat panel TV in the cool and spacious den on the main floor. Lure the kids to their own upstairs den with board games, TV and DVD player. Sleep like a champion beneath your ceiling fan after an evening beach walk beneath the brilliant Milky Way. Wake up, and say, I found it!

About Robin Leake

Karen and Robin live in New Orleans and have enjoyed the idyllic wonders of Blue Mountain Beach for many years. Brother Fields and wife Rhonda live in Sugarland, TX. For us, Surf's Up at BMB means best of times. We hope you will find all the joy our family vacation home.has brought us.

Robin Leake purchased this house in 1994

Why Robin Leake chose South Walton

We used to go to Yucatan 4 or 5 times a year. In the late eighties, we discovered the amazing Emerald Coast and have returned frequently ever since. Days are spent mostly on the beach and in the evening there are several consistently brilliant restaurants nearby. Shopping of every sort is close by. Mostly, this small area of northwest Florida possesses a special atmosphere, a natural beauty, and a restorative power unlike any other place we have found.

Great house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I could not have been happier with our decision to rent this house for a week this summer. The house itself is beautiful. It is spacious, well-decorated and a pleasure to live in. It has a definite beach cottage vibe - hardwood floors, wood paneling on the walls, big wooden deck to enjoy the ocean view. It is not a modern luxury retreat with marble and glass walls and chrome, so if that's your thing then keep searching. We like the casual cottage look and feel. But let me be clear - the house was perfectly clean and so well-maintained. Wifi worked perfectly. The beds are comfortable and the bedrooms are spacious enough for two people comfortably, not like some rentals where they convert a spare closet and try to call it a bedroom. The master has a King bed. The other two bedrooms have a queen and a twin bed. There is plenty of closet space. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything you would need to cook. I almost forgot to mention the outdoor shower! That is an absolute delight after sand and surf.

The location is fantastic. The house is located on a small road that runs along the coast, just across the street from the beach-front homes. But it isn't the main drag of the town with speeding cars and lights. It is indeed a very quiet street. You can look out the window and see the ocean, with an even better view from the master bedroom balcony. Access to the beach itself is so close and easy. There is a wooden walkway just two houses down to the right that takes you straight to the beach. It really is just a minute or so walk to the walkway, and then one more minute along the walkway and down the stairs to the beach. It was close enough and safe enough that the kids could walk back and forth on their own, even at night. This area is single family homes so the beach only has a few people on it at any given time (there is a lifeguard beach about 200 yards down if that makes you more comfortable). The ocean was clear and pale green. The sand was pure white powder.

30A is a nice little community. There are quaint small homes mingling with some giant modern homes. Restaurants and shops are nearby (some close enough to walk/bike, some by car). Just a couple miles away is a grocery and all the stores you would ever need.

All in all, we loved it. The owner is very responsive and clearly takes the time to make this a great vacation spot. I would highly recommend and would rent there again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had another terrific stay in Blue Mountain this summer. We have rented "Surf's Up" for 3 years and will continue to do so. The house is cozy and close to the beach. We will be back next year!

Great location. We love the deck! Clean, well furnished house for a value price.

  • 5 of 5

We love the Blue Mountain area as a laid back and not crowded area on 30a. This house is located just across from a beach access in an area far enough from the condo area to not be crammed in for space.

House is well furnished with the necessities and is clean and well maintained. I highly recommend spending time here.

Cozy Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is well furnished with the comfort of home. Family and friends enjoyed visiting us there, and we felt comfortable entertaining them. Hopefully we'll be able to vacation this rental in the near future. Thanks for allowing us the use of extra beach accessories such as wagon, tent, toys, etc. We especially enjoyed several meals outside on the main deck. Robin was very helpful in answering all of our questions in a very timely manner.

Very homey!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this beach cottage. It is very cottage-like, homey, and cuter than the pictures show. Very close to the beach and everything else we needed. We have never stayed in a VRBO home with so many extras...check out the storage unit on the ground level!! In the kitchen and in the bathrooms, everything we needed was available. Someone left us condiments and other extras which was nice! We left some ice cream and sherbet...we sure hope those who stayed after us were able to enjoy it. The owner was quick to respond and extremely helpful. A great stay was had by all!!
