Description

Close to the sugary shore in Blue Mountain Beach, this three-bedroom townhome is located south of Scenic 30A and can comfortably accommodate eight lucky beachgoers.  Guests will take delight in casually strolling to the beautiful beach and glowing emerald toned waters of the Gulf in only 3 minutes - without any major roads to cross.

The lovely interiors of Sandcastles by the Sea 402 feature sand-colored walls that remind guests they are indeed vacationing on the Emerald Coast. The open living area on the first level includes the gracious living and dining portions of this residence. A sleeper sofa, love seat, and a chic accent chair with subtle oar patterns provide a comfortable seating ensemble near sliding glass doors leading out to one of the balconies. A large flat-screen TV is mounted for entertainment above an elegant creamy white chest. Nearby a rectangular glass-topped table with six beach-inspired chairs sit near another set of sliding glass doors on a soft Persian rug. The interconnecting balcony deck includes seating and a table to enjoy outdoor dining with favorite drinks. The bright open kitchen has a black and white granite counter bar with three raised chairs for additional entertaining space. This is the perfect place to create a fun family meal. A powder room is conveniently located off the living area.

The Primary Bedroom and two guest quarters are upstairs on the top level. All three of these bedrooms include access to a balcony, and one of them looks out toward the community swimming pool framed by a row of towering tropical palms in the distance. The Primary Bedroom has charming white furnishings with a king-sized bed and a full ensuite bath featuring a walk-in shower. Both Guest Bedrooms include a queen-sized bed with one done using handsome dark furnishings and the other completed with lovely coastal déco. The Guest Bedrooms share a full hall bath with a tub-shower combination.

Blue Mountain Beach boasts award-winning beaches and marks the highest elevation above the entire Gulf of Mexico. Hundreds of years ago, Spanish explorers who were mapping the gulf coast from far offshore to avoid being attacked by Native Americans noticed what they thought was a tall "blue mountain" flanked by a flat "beach" and gave it this name. They actually saw the tall hills here covered with indigenous Blue Lupine flowers. These forested hills rise high above the Gulf and wrap around a rare precious coastal dune lake. These kinds of lakes are a precious natural treasure and found hardly anywhere else in the world. They provide a habitat for abundant wildlife, fish, and fowl. This arty, somewhat Bohemian hamlet is quite captivating with a few locally-owned restaurants that include friendly bars, a bakery, an old fashioned ice cream parlor, and the oldest health food store in the county called "For the Health of It" which features organic produce, a juice bar along with massage therapy. It is minutes away from coastal villages like Santa Rosa Beach and Seaside, which feature restaurants, beach bars, fashion boutiques, specialty shops, art galleries, amphitheater concerts as well as fun festivals.

Fantastic! Steps to the beach!
Clean, comfortable, and convenient! After a long drive, walking into this rental was perfect. The place was spotless, had so much deck + lounging space, and the rooms were great. My group and I were shocked at how close beach access was as well. Unlike other areas of 30A, beach access here felt more relaxed and private. We come to this area a lot as a couple and with friends and this will be our go to rental from now on. This is a rare find in a community that makes you feel at home while also giving you a vacation feel.

great space
This property is just as promised! Very spacious, everything you need! Communication was amazing not too little or too much and no issues at all with the whole process. One thing I will say just about this town in general—the public beach here is TINY so be prepared for that if it is busy season. 100% recommend this condo though!

1 block walk before you hit sand
I was a little skeptical as there were no prior reviews on this property, but I was pleasantly surprised it looked as the pictures showed. The pics online seemed photoshopped, but they’re accurate. Very clean, nicely furnished place. The location was excellent, the building and patio deck cover your car so no rain/mist or even salt spray. Each bedroom has a patio deck, and then the main large patio deck is off the living/dining room.

I see there are 2 parking spaces. Where can we park a 3rd vehicle?
Cindy S - Posted: 01/18/2022

Sandcastles By The Sea 402 is only allotted two parking spaces. But, not to worry! We have put together a helpful overnight parking guide just for you. Here are some local options where you can securely park your vehicle overnight.

Are these rentals pet friendly?
Alana S - Posted: 01/23/2022

Answer:

We love our pets here at Ocean Reef. Unfortunately, Sandcastles by the Sea does not permit them for renters.  If you are unable to board your furry family member, you may want to consider one of our other pet friendly vacation rentals.
