Fabulous Place and Location
So glad I found this place! The space was large enough for our two families, not touristy area but still close to the beach. The bikes assigned to the rental were in good shape. Pool was heated the last couple of days of our stay and was comfortable, guess it was a little out of order when we arrived. Beds are very comfy, kitchen had lots of items, minus a pizza pan. Plenty of garbage cans and power strips near the beds, things that make a difference when trying to continue daily functions. WiFi was good, TVs were easy to access music and programming with or without signing in. Dryer was a little wonky, but both washer and dryer were good sized. Lots of bathing towels provided and a sponge in the kitchen. They provided some basic starter dish soap, shower supplies, garbage bags, paper towels/TP, and detergent. Couches so comfy too. AC was a little tricky to even out throughout the 3 floors but it was still fine, glad we brought a blanket for couch lounging though. They had some hooks to hang stuff, something I can’t believe rentals don’t have more of. Roof top was awesome!! You’re going to get your exercise with the stairs. I didn’t mind and provided a good laugh for all of us but my mom could have never done this place. I did get turned around once in a while. Also funny!! Dish washer got used regularly and worked well. We drive so we brought some beach gear, but the Aloha store next door has a lot of you need anything. Now, what we did. It’s about 30 minutes to PCB or Destin. Sidewalk along 30A was planned well, plenty of shade. About a 15-20 bike ride to Grayton State park. Even if you’re on bikes, if it’s gets busy they will deny you access. Weird but ok, we did get in once and it was lovely. We also biked to Grayton Beach, that was great! Rented surf boards from LIV, great experience as well, with free delivery and pick up. So glad we chose this area and this rental! Found on VRBO but then rented directly from Ocean Reef. Working with Ocean Reef was also great! Will do that again for sure!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at our rental! We're thrilled to hear that the space accommodated both of your families comfortably and that you enjoyed the convenience of our location near the beach without the hustle and bustle of tourist areas. We're glad the bikes were in good shape and that the pool, once heated, added a comfortable touch to your stay. It's wonderful to know that the beds provided the comfort you needed and that the kitchen was well-equipped for your needs, pizza pan aside (which we've noted for future improvements). We truly appreciate your feedback on the small details that made a difference in your stay, like the abundance of garbage cans, power strips, and the starter supplies provided. We apologize for any inconvenience the dryer and the AC system may have caused and are looking into these to ensure a more seamless experience for our future guests. The rooftop seems to have been a hit, and we're delighted it offered you fantastic views and a space to relax. Your note about the stairs is well-taken; we aim to ensure all our guests are comfortable and will consider how we can better communicate the layout to guests with varying mobility needs. Thank you for your kind words and the laughter shared among your family during your stay. It's feedback like yours that helps us continue to improve and make our rental a welcoming place for all our guests. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again soon!

We stayed at Thirty Blu 8 for vacation this year and loved it.
The house was beautiful and well stocked. The three floors provided privacy for other family members. The house was just a short walk to the beach and the bikes included were a nice bonus! We will definitely be back!
