About the property

One story, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath (2 Master Suites) in The Village of Blue Mountain

Enjoy your next getaway at Pura Vida! Our three bedroom, two bath home is located in the private, gated community of The Village of Blue Mountain along prestigious 30A. Pura Vida is the perfect home for families or couples featuring two master bedrooms with king size beds, a bunk room and two full baths.

Walk, bike, or golf cart over to the sugar sands and the waters of Blue Mountain Beach. Our home is tucked in a quiet neighborhood which offers an oversized community pool and fitness center. The Blue Mountain Beach access has free parking available, if you prefer to drive, as well as public restrooms and lifeguards on duty.

Local shops and restaurants are located right around the corner including: Trebeache' at Redfish Village where Sunday brunch is not to be missed, Blue Mountain Creamery where people line up for their homemade ice cream and sorbet, La Loba's Bakery where you'll find a plethora of fresh baked goods and a delicious organic lunch menu, and The Juicery offering refreshing cold pressed juices. These are just to name a few!

Bike paths are easily accessible from the neighborhood. The community itself is very pedestrian friendly with no through traffic making it a wonderful place for kids to get out and play. The relaxing, oversized pool and fitness center is located within a 2 minute walk from our home.

Pura Vida is a 1600 ft. single story cottage featuring new furnishings and decor as well as bamboo flooring throughout. The spacious living room offers a 52 inch flat-screen HDTV with Blu-ray/DVD player, Netflix and TiVo as well as a sleeper sofa.

The open kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steal appliances, and brand new dinnerware, cookware, and glassware. Dining table seats 6 with additional bar seating at the island.

The oversized master suite feels like a retreat... offering a king size bed, en suite full bathroom and walk-in closet. Relax in the sitting area and enjoy the 36 inch HDTV with TiVo. The spacious second master is just as serene featuring a king size bed, HDTV with TiVo, and adjacent full bath.

Kids or teenagers alike will love the bunkroom which includes two sets of bunkbeds (3 twins, 1 full bed), HDTV, Netflix, Blu-ray/DVD player, and Xbox 360 with games.

Included in your stay, enjoy the use of various beach gear including Tommy Bahama beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards and an assortment of beach toys. Also, because we're owner operated you pay NO booking fee, NO additional charge for payment by credit card.

At Pura Vida, you're only 2 miles from the least crowded Publix in the area, 8 miles to Grand Blvd in Sandestin where you'll enjoy upscale shopping and dining, 3 minute drive to Grayton and the famous 'The Red Bar,' 8 minute drive to Seaside which offers a multitude of restaurants, shopping, art galleries and events.

About Lesley Sawyer

Our family is beach crazy...for years we've dreamed of owning a home at the beach and we are so thrilled to share our place with you.

We are a family of 4 from the Nashville, TN area. My husband and I each grew up coming to the Gulf every year...sometimes to Panama City, sometimes Gulf Shores or Destin. When we started our journey towards owning our own place we immediately fell in love with 30A. The scenery, the sugar white sand, the local shops and restaurants...it's all just perfect.

We welcome you to our home and hope you enjoy your stay.

Lesley Sawyer purchased this house in 2015

Why Lesley Sawyer chose South Walton

Blue Mountain Beach is what you want from a stay on 30A. The access, the prestige, the local shops and restaurants...but all of it with the avoidance of traffic and overcrowding you may experience on the eastern end of 30A or in Destin. This is paradise!

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that we have a free standing home on 30A. We enjoy grilling out on the deck and being able to walk to the pool for a dip. The kids love that there's a yard to play in and riding their bikes along the neighborhood sidewalks. There's parking for everyone, and we enjoy our neighbors, many of whom are full-time residents.

Relaxing, fun and easy stay near Blue Mountain beach

  • 5 of 5

One of the few one-story homes in the area, this house is everything we needed. Liked the layout, easy to manage kitchen and dining area for three small children. Loved the beach equipment that had everything we needed for a short or long beach-hang-out-day! We didn't swim in the pool, but if we stayed longer I'm sure we would like it, it looked clean. Our boys loved the bunk room and were especially excited about the Xbox system and games!! Thanks for sharing your home with us. :)

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was spacious for our family of 8. The kids enjoyed the kids room with bunk beds and xbox. Short walk or bike ride to the beach!

Perfect space for family of six!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great time we had in Blue Mountain Beach! Pura Vida was the perfect space for our family of six. The boys had a blast playing on the XBOX 360 in the bunk bed room. Our daughter enjoyed having her own space in the extra master bedroom. The neighborhood is beautiful and the pool was awesome!! The kitchen was huge and gave us plenty of space to enjoy dining in. We can't wait to come back!!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely a wonderful week! It started great when the home was ready for check-in 90 minutes early. It just continued. The home is spacious (plenty big for the six of us). It is in a prime location. It is close to the beach yet in a neighborhood that is quiet. Blue Mountain Beach was never to crowded and had a great family atmosphere. I would rent this house again!
