Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
Unit 6A in Blue Tide is a true BEACH FRONT condominium on the ground floor of a small three-story community in the heart of the Emerald Coast, featuring parking, a private pool and private beach access. Located between Seagrove and Rosemary (just a few miles from Seaside), this is the perfect home for your relaxing beach experience! From a spacious living room, you will look out to the breathtaking white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters of the Gulf. Newly renovated with slate flooring, a wall-mounted 42' HDTV, high-speed internet, a Blueray DVD player and brand new furnishings throughout, this unit has been carefully designed to make the most of its amazing location and provide a luxurious home for guests. The large open kitchen is a dream, with brand new cabinets, silestone counter tops and stainless steel appliances (including a double stove and bottom drawer freezers). A KING master bedroom and a sofa bed with a foam mattress provide a comfortable sleeping experience for all.
Great set up
About the Owner

Location location location
The condo is ground level and as we walked out the back, we were a couple of feet from the steps,down to the beach. Well appointed kichen, but no kettle.
Be careful in bedroom....kept knocking our legs on bed....table with TV too close.
Bring soap for shower and dishwasher soap and if you do dishes, bring a dishcloth.
The owner has veautiful photographs on walls, lots of games and books. Very clean and comfy. We would come again!!!!!
Fantastic view and amazing beach in great location
The apartment really is located perfectly and the private beach was very quiet when we visited late Oct, still weather was perfect for sunbathing. Lot's appliances for cooking your own food.
Great set up
Can't think of a better location--Seacrest is far enough away from tourist-bogged Seaside and still on the same snow white beach. Restaurant food options are satisfactory, but we ate fresh seafood from nearby Goatfeathers market and cooked it at the condo. All the dishes and pots we needed were provided. The beach is just a few steps down, and that made it easy to bring all the beach paraphernalia. The porch has a great open view of the sea, sunset including, without getting up. The place was quiet, clean, and furnished in the way that two people could do their own thing in the living room at the same time, to make the most of the space. Two tvs (living room and bedroom) also made separate activities possible. Definitely recommend the place.
Great location, but we had a few issues
The location is great. It's right on the beach. You can't get much closer to the water. We were there in mid September, and the beach wasn't crowded at all. If you like a 1st floor unit where you can walk straight out to the beach this is a great option.
The kitchen has been recently updated. Countertops, cabinets, and appliances all looked brand new. It's the best part of the condo other than the location.
We did have a few negatives though...
We were without internet service for the week. The owner was having issues prior to our stay with the wifi, and it wasn't repaired while we were there. She was working on it, and I believe was trying to solve it, but it was an issue for us. The owner was quick to respond to a few issues that we had when we arrived.
The condo has a tv in the bedroom, but it doesn't have cable service. It does have a DVD player. If the wifi had been working this wouldn't have been as big of a deal since we could have streamed Netflix (you do need to bring your own streaming device).
The condo is of similar size to other 1 bedroom units that we have stayed in, but it felt cluttered to us which gave it a smaller feeling than it actually is. The bunkbeds are in the living room area rather than in the hallway as they are in many units, and that played into this as well.
My biggest complaint would be with using the word "luxurious" in it's description. It' a nice condo, and the kitchen has been recently updated, but luxurious is not an accurate description. It's typical of most 1 bedroom condos we've rented along 30A. The kitchen is really nice, but overall it falls short of luxurious.
Not as nice as expected
When we arrived the unit was suppose to be cleaned and ready by 4:00 checkin. It was not and it was 5:30 before it was cleaned and ready. The unit needs to be updated. The toliet seat was broken and the shower curtain had mold on it. We were given very few towels to use and only two hand towels. The towels were also mismatched and need to be replaced. The walls in the bath and kitchen had places where they needed to be painted. The microwave was old and had stains inside. The outside porch furniture was mismatch as well as the cushions all torn and old. There were lamps with no light bulbs. All of the linens for the beds and curtains need to be updated. When we arrived the wifi would not work but Alma was on top of it trying to help find the problem. Alma seemed to be very concerned about being quick to respond to needs. The unit just was not what I was hoping for as far as it being clean and updated. The view was great but the accommodations were just not up to par for the area.
We are all about the view, and Alma's place has it!
As soon as we walk in and see and hear the ocean right out on our patio, we go "Ahhhhhh, we're at the beach." We were out at the beach paddle boarding in the calm beautiful morning, boogie boarding the waves in the afternoon and enjoying the sunset in the evening as the moon rose opposite it. The unit has everything you need or want..... from quartz countertop, nice frig, double oven to a washing machine that also dries your clothes! Alma is a pleasure to correspond with and is so responsive to any questions. We will choose to stay at her place when we travel to 30A again.
Activity and Interests
Here, you are a short bike ride away from the communities of Alys Beach and Rosemary (where you will find outdoor concerts, local art displays and shops and eateries) and close to other beach communities such as Blue Mountain, Dune Allen, Grayton, Water Color and Seaside where fine dining, shopping and a salon/spa can be found. Along 30-A, there are eighteen miles of bike paths. Looking for a day in town? You will be just a few miles from shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, water parks, miniature golf, etc. in Destin (including the largest designer outlet mall in the country in Sandestin). In the opposite direction, Panama City is a short half-hour drive away. The Fort Walton Beach and Northwest Florida Beaches Airports are each less than an hour away.
