A Wonderful Hidden Gem    Sep 30, 2023

review star

The condo was absolutely perfect and more than I expected!! This hidden gem is sitting in a perfect spot and the property has every amenity you would need!! Eileen is an exceptional host! She was extremely gracious and accommodating when we needed to change our arrival date due to my hubs fracturing his ankle. The condo has everything you need from bedding to cookware, you will want for nothing!! Eileen provides it all!

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Sherry It was a pleasure hosting you and Bill. So glad the change of dates worked easily - and you could both enjoy the beach and some biking. I’d love to host you again the next time you head to 30A. Eileen

Lovely Beach Condo    Sep 12, 2023

review star

This three bedroom condo is spacious, but very comfortable with every detail leading to feeling like home. From beautiful rugs, to relaxing seating, to restful bedding, to soft pillows everywhere, this unit has the guest in mind. The kitchen is well stocked with everything one would need to provide snacks, drinks or meals for family members/friends staying in the condo. The entire unit was spotlessly clean and features many recent updates that add to the luxury feeling. All of the common spaces inside the building were well maintained and very clean. The beach setup was such a bonus! Just be certain to go down early and reserve your space on the front row when it is busy! The outside balconies were beautifully furnished and were perfect for quiet reading. I would also like to highlight Eileen, the owner, she manages to be highly professional and organized, while being so warm and personable. She is responsive and helpful in areas. She was an absolute delight throughout the entire process. The beach area in Blue Mountain is beautiful and that area is not quite as crowded as some of the other little seaside towns. I would definitely return for a stay in this unit for a lovely vacation.

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Rebecca, I’m delighted it worked out for you to enjoy some time at the beach. I definitely try to make a comfortable home for my guests and I think it helps that I live in the condo 6 mos/yr. Always doing projects to keep everything in good working order and comfy for my family and my guests. Hope to host you again the next time you’re looking for a beach getaway! All the best, Eileen

Beyond Breathtaking!!!    Aug 16, 2023

review star

This unit was awesome. From the beginning of the process, throughout our stay everything was perfect. Ms.Eileen description of the beach was spot on. We had chair and umbrella service throughout our stay and her unit is second to none. The beach was less than a minute from the unit. The central location was close to everything….shopping, dinning and entertainment. We can’t wait to go back, thank you Ms. Eileen for everything.

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Oscar It was a pleasure to introduce you to 30A and Blue Mtn Beach. I’m so glad you loved it as much as we do- our oasis right on the beach, super comfy and love that we can walk to restaurants, bakery and great ice cream! I look forward to hosting you again!

Always A Great Experience    Jun 03, 2023

review star

We have stayed at Eileen’s Blue Mountain Beach condo for several years now while attending my husband’s judicial conference. Her condo is always clean and comfortable, and Eileen goes out of her way to accommodate her guests. The kitchen has every thing a cook needs, and we are always comfortable in her spacious home. Access to the beach is very easy and convenient. I love the fact that there is an overflow parking lot to accommodate more than one car since my children drive in to stay during the week. The complimentary beach chairs are an added bonus. The grilling area is always available for use and very relaxing. I especially love that this complex isn’t huge like most others are, so I never feel that we are crowded out by too many people at the beach or pool. I highly recommend renting from Eileen!

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Sheryl I’m so appreciative that you continue to trust us with your family’s vacation. We work hard to have a comfortable, relaxing and clean home when you come visit. We never take it for granted. Hope you’ll be back the next time you head to the beach! Eileen

Fall Break perfection    Oct 09, 2022

review star

We had a party of 6 stay here for our fall break. Eileen was so helpful when booking our reservation and answered any questions that we had leading up to our trip! She even checked in with us during our stay! The condo is beautiful and comfortable and fully stocked for any needs! Best rental unit we have ever stayed in. The blue mountain beach condo grounds and facilities were so nice!! The beach was gorgeous and the gulf was stunning so clear and many shades of blue!! We enjoyed the beach set up and her extras in the storage unit! She provided names for our fishing charter that we did. The property manager Jeff was so awesome! Talked to him a few times and he even had to come fix a small toilet repair and brought the family Doughnut Hole doughnuts as a surprise! We will certainly come back and I have shared this link with friends! I can’t wait to return when I am not recovering from knee surgery and walk all around the cute area! Oh and the balcony was gorgeous!!!

What a wonderful stay our family had on Blue Lupine. Everything we could have needed was in the condo and we were mere steps from the beach!! Eileen is a dream to work with and I feel like we have made a family friend. We look forward to coming back soon. Thank you so much Eileen for everything.

Another Great Blue Lapine Summer Stay    Jul 23, 2022

review star

We just enjoyed sour 2nd summer vacation at Blue Mtn beach in Eileen’s condo. Her place is so well equipped for a family of four. It has all kitchen needs, all beach needs, direct private access to the beach, convenient to great restaurants, and to other areas such as Watercolor and Destin. We plan on coming back in 2023.

Stress free vacation    Jul 16, 2022

review star

If you're looking for hassle-free, this beachfront condo is a great place to stay! Eileen is so responsive and organized - she is super easy to work with. And her property manager, Jeff, is also super helpful and responsiveness. Heck even the young men running the beach chair rental (which was so nice to have!) are extremely friendly. We have stayed on 30a multiple times, but this was our first time to BMB, which I highly recommend if you are looking for a more relaxed, laid back vacation. Even thought we were there during high season we never ran into traffic or long wait times at restaurants. We also loved having access to Eileen's storage in the parking garage filled with extra beach chairs, floats, etc. It's so nice to not have to drag all that stuff (and sand!) back to the condo each day. Our favorite restaurant was Blue Mabel, which has a happy hour daily that makes it very reasonable. Best gumbo I've ever had!

Blue Lupine and Eileen are fantastic!    May 31, 2022

review star

Eileen’s place is well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The entire condo is cozy and welcoming with local art, books, plenty of seating areas for bigger families, and bonus toys and chairs for the beach. We loved having direct access to the beach - no roads to cross - and appreciated that the staff and beach guys remembered us each day. Eileen knows the area well and all of her dining suggestions were spot on (and the complex is walking distance to many options). Jeff, the property manager, was easily accessible and checked in throughout our stay. This experience definitely sold us on Blue Mtn Beach and we hope to return soon!

Jennifer, So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that my condo was such a great for your family. The location right on the beach and walking distance to restaurants, ice cream, bakery and bike rentals makes things so easy. I look forward to hosting you again! Eileen

We stayed at the Blue Lupine in May 2022 and had an amazing time! Eileen's unit was beautiful. There was no lack of space for our family of 5 adults. Her place had e erything you possibly need in your home away from home. There 2 beach chairs and an umbrella available to us each day. She provided access to all kinds of extras for the beach. We stayed when a variety of annual maintenance was being done and was a bit inconvenient to us. But, Eileen did go above and beyond to make our more comfortable.

Wonderful Blue Mountain Vacation    Oct 05, 2021

review star

We had a wonderful fall break at Eileen’s home away from home. She has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. She responded to my countless emails before, during and after our trip. Since she lives in the condo for part of the year, she knows everything about the area. The condo was very clean, and so comfortable. We had plenty of room for our party of 6. The complex is so nice and updated everywhere you turn. We loved the storage area in the parking garage. Even though we brought our own chairs and umbrellas, there were plenty there for our use. It was nice to drop off/pick up our stuff each day, instead of hauling it to and from the beach to the condo. The property manager, Jeff, was also super helpful in allowing us to check in a little early and checking on us during our stay. We have stayed in Seagrove for years, (and we love Seagrove) but it was so nice to be on the more quiet part of 30A. The only negative thing I can say, is that we couldn’t stay longer! Looking forward to returning to 222!

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Beth, I never mind answering questions- you plan a vacation for a long time and want it to be perfect. Its my pleasure to field any question that arises. And, since this was your first time In Blue Mtn Beach, learning about the west end of 30A in advance only helps make your trip more enjoyable. Plus, we love sharing BMB with our guests. And you never know, you could come to love Blue Mtn Beach and Blue Lupine, like we do! Hope you come back soon and stay longer! Eileen

Eileen and Jeff were wonderful to work with, both responded quickly to my questions and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The condo was just as described and worked perfectly for our family of four. We had family come in for two of the weeks we were there and the 3rd bedroom made it easy for 6 of us to stay comfortably. The condo is stocked with everything we needed, even chairs and sand toys for the kiddos! We made some sweet family memories on this trip. We would definitely book with Eileen in the future.

Perfect vacation!    Jun 26, 2021

review star

Last week was my families 21st summer to vacation along the gulf in Florida. We’ve stayed everywhere from Okaloosa, Destin to PCB and every 30A beach in between except for Blue Mountain. Last week we finally found our favorite place. Everything about Eileen’s condo and the location was amazing. Eileen is a super sweet lady who goes above and beyond to make sure her guests have everything they could possibly need (and more) Her condo was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished and a VERY well stocked kitchen. She also provided very nice beach chairs and umbrellas. We ended up renting a beach set up from the beach chair guy ( who was super sweet and always set us up front and center every morning) but it was nice to have the extra chairs for our older children. Blue lupine is a wonderful complex, very well maintained, and it’s private beach is not overcrowded like the places we’ve stayed on 30A the last few summers. Thank you Eileen, for sharing your special place with us. We had the best week! ?? If I could give you more than 5 stars I would!

A great stay despite the hurricane!!    Sep 05, 2020

review star

We stayed in Eileen's beautiful unit for 2 weeks. I was pleasantly surprised. It isn't like most beach rentals; it's more like you're staying at a friend's. It feels very homey- local art, books, comfy furniture and the kitchen is well stocked. There is everything you would need. My husband was a little disappointed that we weren't overlooking the beach, but you can see the beach from the lovely side patio and the walk to the beach and pool is short and easy. The complex is convenient - walking distance to rent bikes, have ice cream or visit restaurants. Hurricane Sally came our second week and Eileen was so good to check on us. We enjoyed that week as well, despite being confined to the condo for a day or so. There was great communication from Eileen before and after the trip and Jeff made sure we didn't have any problems checking in. Eileen is a great host and we would love to stay in Unit 222 again!!

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Leslie, Thanks so much for letting us host. Who knew you'd be hunkering down during the hurricane. That being said I was delighted that the power never went out and you guys remained comfy and safe inside. Hopefully you can visit next time when the sun is out, everything is calm .....and the only daily concern is "where shall you dine tonight". Be well! Eileen

Great week at the Beach    Jun 06, 2020

review star

So I hesitate to write this review because I would rather everyone not know about Eileen’s condo but that would not be fair to Eileen. I will start with Eileen and Jeff, what great people and super responsive if you ever need anything. If you are not familiar with Blue Mountain Beach it is a great location, a few miles down the beach from Water Color and Seaside but not near as busy as far as the traffic goes and they don’t have Blue Mountain Creamery. The complex is right on the beach with covered parking for one vehicle. Make sure to get the beach chair guy’s name and you can arrange for them to set up a umbrella and chairs for a reasonable fee. Eileen’s condo is well stocked, anything you could possibly need in the kitchen. The balcony is huge with comfortable seating. There is also a separate balcony right outside the Master Bedroom. Beds are comfortable and two of the bathrooms are attached to the bedrooms. The other is just outside the third bedroom. Finally, Eileen has thought of just about everything including step by step directions on the washer and dryer. We would stay there every time but we don’t always know which week we are going and it is booked the majority of the time in the summer. My only complaint is if you have multiple cars the overflow parking lot could be a little closer but having covered parking for the one car is a big plus because it keeps your car from getting smoking hot.

Great experience and terrific condo!    May 25, 2020

We were so thankful to enjoy Memorial Day week 2020 at the beach! The rental experience of working with Eileen was excellent – regular and timely communication, advance preparation, responsiveness, etc. The condo is very comfortable, well appointed, great indoor and outdoor space, quiet, and everything else you need for a great vacation. We've been visiting 30-A and all of the FL panhandle for a long time - this was our first time to Blue Mountain and we loved being tucked away just far enough from the crowds. The pool and beach were perfect. Covered parking is a plus, along with a stocked locker for storing beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, etc. The on-site grilling area has 2 full-size gas grills, very convenient and plenty of space to relax while cooking dinner. We highly recommend!

Jason, I was so glad it worked out for you to actually come to the beach! Beach closings, Phase 0, phase 1 openings- nothing like a little drama to make a relationship! Thanks so much for hanging in there and waiting things out. You've been great to work with and it was my pleasure to host you at Blue Lupine. All the best, Eileen

Beautiful!    Sep 01, 2019

We could not have asked for a better experience staying in this lovely condo. When we arrived it was immaculately clean and ready for our family. It was very well stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The owner was so accommodating and very easy to communicate with. She checked on us when we got there to make sure everything as going smoothly. The building is right on the beach, so getting our family down to the beach was so easy. The storage unit in the basement of the building made going back and forth just that much more convenient. We loved our stay and will definitely be going again!

So glad you had a great time and that the condo was a good fit for the family. Like you, I love the convenience of being right on the beach. Nothing better than leaving the condo and being on the beach in just 2 min. Hope to host you again! Eileen

Wonderful Vacation    Jul 20, 2019

My family has just returned from staying at Eileen's wonderful condo and we are already missing it! When we first arrived, Jeff was there to meet us and give us our parking pass and show us around the condo. The condo itself was probably one of the cleanest we have ever stayed in on 30a--and we've stayed in quite a few over the years! The beds are super comfortable and the baths have tons of towels! The kitchen is stocked with anything and everything you need to cook a full meal--you will never run out of dishes, cups of varying sizes, silverware or utensils! The location of the condo and the building is ideal! It literally takes two minutes to get from your condo to the beach! The building is located in a quieter area from all the hustle and bustle of 30a--you never feel too crowded. However, you are just minutes away from tons of delicious restaurants so it's the best of both worlds. Eileen and Jeff both checked in with us often to make sure everything was going ok and to ask if we needed anything. It was so nice to feel like they did actually care if we were enjoying our time--you don't get that too often anymore! My family and I are already planning our trip for next year!
