Another Great Review of Team Work!
Review #12005724 “Last Minute Vactaion”
My wife and I decided to take a last minute vacation and came across this unit and was a great price and location! Patty was great to work with and very helpful when booking it at the last minute. The studio was a perfect size for us and right by the pool, restaurants, shops, lagoon pool and the trolley stop (everything in walking distance)! The unit was clean and had plenty of space for us and even our bikes that we brought! Liked that it had wireless internet and had a small fridge and kitchen sink area. Would recommend to couples, small families and we would definitely come back and stay!– Guest www.vrbo.com/486818

The nineteen mile bike/walking path just outside the gate offers those who are into exercising a great place to enjoy the outdoor activities. For the Golfer, there are many courses with a very short drive. Some of the best in the South!
If you are looking for activities for the Children, Panama City Beach is less than a ten minute drive to the East, and Destin is within thirty minutes to the West.

If you are looking for the ultimate family vacation spot, look no further. This area is perfect for everyone’s needs.

This month’s featured listing is one that we simply adore! She’s named Bella Fortuna and it’s located in beautiful Seacrest Beach. Bella was chosen for the month due to its growing popularity among repeat guests and overwhelming 5 star reviews!!
Recent Review: We loved staying at Bella Fortuna. This home was beautiful, clean, and well located to both the pool and the beach. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need and the beds were very comfortable. We also liked the outdoor shower for removing the sand after our days at the beach. Another plus was the daily beach chair/umbrella set-up. It was so nice not having to rush to the beach to stake out our location. Each day we simply showed up and our two chairs and umbrella were already set up and reserved with our name. In addition there was ample room for the extra chairs and toys we brought for the kids. The manager, Patty, was terrific too! She was so helpful during the planning of our trip. We would definitely recommend this house to families visiting..

When traveling down to the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast, there are a few essentials needed to ensure a successful day on our white sandy beaches. Before you and your family leave your Oceanside Beach Rental’s vacation rental and feel the white sands between your toes – be sure to make a checklist of these beach items:
1) You must pack a towel or two. To have a great day laying out, bring a big beach towel or sheet, plus a few extra towels (no one likes being sandy all day). A good tip is to level out the area you are going to lay on before dropping the towels, and remember to “tuck-in” each corner to keep your layout area in place.
2) A good cooler with plenty of water and some sandwiches for a quick meal is a great idea because the sun’s rays will have you dehydrated rather quickly. Also toss a few different levels of sunscreen/lotion, chapstick, and aloe-vera in the cooler as well, you will be glad you did.
3) Beach chairs and big shade umbrellas are a great addition if you plan an all day adventure, but most beaches along the coast offer the luxury of nice lounge beach chair rentals for you (a God-send if you have children or want to relax for more than a few hours). We also offer a complimentary beach chair setup from The Beach Chair Company for most of our vacation rentals from March 1 through October 31.
4) No great beach day is complete without a means of entertainment. If you have children, this means shovels, buckets, and boogie-boards. If you are an adult, this probably means a book, music, and friends.
While it is generally best to go out on an extra sunny and clear day, don’t discount a somewhat cloudy day as a bad beach day that you can’t get any sun on. These are the days that catch most people off guard and create the worst sunburns. On cloudy beach days, remember to cover up with suntan lotion and reapply every few hours – again, you will be glad you did.
Our beaches are better. A common mistake when visiting the beaches of Destin, Santa Rosa Beach, Panama City Beach, and Pensacola Beach is to stay out on the beach too long, trying to get a “good” tan. Very different from a tanning bed and your local river, the sands we have on the beach are nearly white and very reflective, making our beaches much more effective for tanning. Unless you are very dark skinned, limit your time at the beach to just a couple hours your first day – again, you will be glad you did.
Choose the right beach area. To properly evaluate what type of beach experience you want to have, the ideal way to scope out your “favorite” beach area is to drive by and look at it yourself. If you have children and want a relaxed and quiet day, choosing a popular beach near a beach-bar is probably not the best choice. If you are coming to Florida and wanting to let loose with your close friends and enjoy being around people, there are many famous beach bars in our area.
Prepare before you get out in the sun. Before you embark out in the sun, be sure to put on sunscreen at least 15 minutes beforehand. If you have sensitive skin or you want to protect your face, stop by one of our many surf shops and grab some hi-quality facial sun-block.

Blue Moutain Beach, FL
First, a little background, boasting the highest elevation point along the Emerald Coast at 64 feet, Blue Mountain Beach, FL is located midway between Flamingo Village and Rosemary Beach, FL on Scenic Hwy 30A.
So how did Blue Mountain Beach get its name? Well, legend tells us the first explorers to the area may have mistaken the high sand dunes as mountains after months at sea. While the explorers may have been slightly delirious when they dubbed the area as mountainous, they did at least get the beach part right. Beautifully adorned with blue lupine flowers at the time, long time locals give sight to a time with entire dune landscapes covered in blue. Still, to this day, the blue lupine’s can be seen between homes and in the protected areas of Blue Mountain Beach.
No doubt one of the most publicly docile areas along 30A, Blue Mountain Beach is perhaps the best place for the adventurer to explore the wildlife on the Emerald Coast. Hosting three rare coastal dune lakes, Little Redfish Lake, Big Redfish Lake, and Draper Lake, Blue Mountain Beach is the perfect location for the outdoor enthusiast, kayaker, fisher, and Paddle boarder.
Settled mostly with private residences nestled in the greenery of South Walton’s natural surroundings, Blue Mountain Beach is also home to a few funky small businesses that make the lifestyle of Blue Mountain Beach all the more memorable. From the local eatery of Stinky’s Fish Camp that offers locally caught and prepared cuisine to the world-renowned Justin Gaffrey art Studio.
