Description

Beachfront Building On 30A in Blue Mtn Beach, 3 BD/3BA Condo

Everyone says my condo has everything they need for their vacation. The most well-stocked, well maintained condo they've ever stayed in. 
So, make plans now to relax at the beach and enjoy your vacation RIGHT ON THE BEACH at  this beautiful condo on Blue Mountain Beach.  

I live in my condo 6 months of the year, so you will find my condo comfortable and completely ready for you!  This winter we installed new custom drapes, new 55" smart tv with a sound bar, new side tables, new fabric on swivel chairs, new rug, and painted the entire great living area including living and dining room, kitchen, front and side halls and bathroom.  A brand new look for you to enjoy!

This beautifully decorated 3 bedroom condo is located at Blue Lupine, unit 222, formerly known as The Inn At Blue Mountain.
Situated on the highest point on the Gulf Of Mexico, the gulf-front condominium building is located 1 block off  Highway 30A in Blue Mountain Beach, sequestered between 2 non-renting upscale communities and offers maximum privacy with it's private beach access and gated, covered garage. Enjoy the 50 feet atrium, newly furnished and landscaped, work out in the fitness room or lounge by the gulf front pool and hot tub exclusive to guests at Blue Lupine.

Our condo is located on the second floor on the west side.----think great sunsets! This is a 3 bedroom, which consists of 1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Twin beds and a Queen Sleeper Sofa (new sleeper mattress), and 3 bath unit. It is 1650 square feet with an additional 400 square feet of balcony. The layout is an open floor plan with a main living  and dining area (lots of seating), 55' smart TV, DVD/CD player,with a wide selection of movies and music CD's for your enjoyment.  Plus, there are 2 wings of bedrooms. The master suite has a king bed and it's own private balcony (2 large Adirondack chairs), private bath with over-sized jacuzzi is on one end of the condo. The opposite end has a second bedroom with queen bed and flat screen TV and DVD player and private bath and access to the main balcony (teak dining table with 6 cushioned chairs and 4 comfortable wicker chairs with 3 small side tables---the wicker chairs can also be used as extra chairs at the table).  A third bedroom of twin beds with  flat screen TV and DVD player is off the side hall next to a third full bath.  This floor plan offers unusual privacy for the couple with children or for multiple couples sharing the condo.

There are ceiling fans in the main living area and in each bedroom.  Also, the condo is equipped with 4 televisions,  4 DVDs, and Clock Radios in each bedroom. There is a front loader washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience (laundry detergent is provided) and a fully stocked kitchen (with all stainless steel appliances, cherry cabinets, granite counter tops and glass back splash).

The pool and hot tub are gated and overlook the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Nestled between the 2 gated non-rental communities, we enjoy a very private and quiet beach. During high season, we have security on site most nights of the week.

So, make plans now for your next vacation!  Comfortable living with great beaches, great food, great music, great art, great fishing, great shopping, great golfing -----GREAT MEMORIES.....and it is all here at BLUE LUPINE, Unit 222  right on BLUE MOUNTAIN BEACH.
Hope to see you soon!
Eileen

We just completed our 3rd visit to Blue Mountain Beach - Blue Lupine Condominiums - home of the famous Eileen McDermott - Good Lord willing, we plan to continue our family vacations here until......!! Unit 222 is absolutely gorgeous - the artwork is fabulous!! Clean! Comfortable! Easy access!! Beach is as good as it gets on the Gulf Coast. Family friendly!! As long as "Ms Mc" will have us we plan to attend!! Hate to share - like to keep this place a secret!!

Eileen McDermott's reply:

I'm so glad we're such a great fit for your family! What a compliment! I work hard to make sure my guests have a great time at the beach and have a comfortable stay in the condo. It's working! It will be my pleasure to host you in 2021!

Perfect Family Vacation Spot!    Jun 13, 2020

review star

For the past 3 years my family (4 children under 11) and their grandparents have stayed here and we LOVE IT! Great living space, pool/beach access is easy for everyone, and owners are fantastic to work with. We booked for next year (2021) as soon as we left this year. For our family, stage of life, and what we want out of a beach vacation, look know further!!

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Ryan, Always great to hear that everything works so well for the family. You plan all year to head to the beach and we want you to have a wonderful time. Thanks so much with trusting us to do that. 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.

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Jonathan, Thanks so much for the kind words. It was great that we were able make dates work this summer. Hope to work with you again - this time when the iconic Red Bar is back and rocking! I'm told that's in 2 weeks! Have a great rest of the summer! Eileen

Great experience and terrific condo!    May 25, 2020

review star

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!

Eileen McDermott's reply:

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!

Eileen McDermott's reply:

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

review star

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!

owner image

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Jana I'm so glad you found us! We loved having you and your family as our guests. Because we live in the condo half a year, it really is stocked just like home. Every year we do a new project, just like home. And you've identified all the things that we love about our location- right on the beach, close to everything on 30A, but away from the hustle and bustle, Would love to have you back! Eileen

Wonderful Vacation    Jul 20, 2019

review star

My family and I just returned from staying in Eileen's unit and we are already counting the days until we can return! This condo is one of the cleanest and most fully furnished units we have ever stayed in! The kitchen has every type of utensil and cookware you will need to prepare a wonderful meal and you will never run out of dishes, drinkware, silverware or pots and pans! The baths are fully equipped and have tons of nice towels! The beds are super comfortable--I am very particular about my mattress and pillow and I slept great every night! The location of both the condo and the building itself is also great! This time of year 30a can be a madhouse--but the location of Blue Lupine is away from the hustle and bustle and we never felt like we were packed in at the beach. The unit itself is only a couple of minutes to the sand! There are tons of beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and other beach toys available for use--my kids loved it! Perhaps best of all is the communication with Eileen and her property manager, Jeff! Either one of them or both communicated with me from the initial booking to the email thanking me for staying! I have never received such great service and it was greatly appreciated! We have found our "spot" and can't wait to return!

Return renters    Jul 13, 2019

I have stayed in unit 222 three times now, I believe. And I will be back. The condo is so comfortable and it's convenience to the beach cannot be beat. Condo is completely updated and is well stocked with anything you could want. Also provided were beach chairs and umbrellas, as well as boogie boards and things for the kids. Communication with the owner, and her man on the ground, Jeff, was extremely efficient. I have vacationed in this area since I was a child and this stretch of the beach is especially lovely--away from the big high rise communities with super packed beaches. Blue Mtn, and Blue Lupine especially, provide more space per person, and room to spread out. A more perfect location and condo, I haven't found!

owner image

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Georgia, So glad you keep coming back. Thank you! We work really hard to make sure our guests are having a great time at the beach- good communication in advance, no surprises and everything you need to relax. You found 30A before we did, but like you, we love our beach, beachfront pool and hot tub - nestled between 2 non-rental communities, no mob scene at our place....thanks so much for trusting us with your vacation. Hope to work with you again. All the best, Eileen

Perfect Family Vacation    May 24, 2019

review star

The condominium was perfect for our family vacation! The complex is located right on the beach for easy access. There are also very few condominiums in the complex which allows the beach not to become overcrowded. The beach itself is picturesque, with white, powdery sand and a gradual slope into the water. The water is a beautiful emerald shade with very little to moderate wave action. The condominium is centrally located and very close to Seaside, Destin, and even a short drive from Panama City for those looking for an excursion during the day or at night. Inside, the condominium is well apportioned and in great condition! It feels like the perfect beach getaway! The accommodations were perfect! Finally, but not insignificantly, the owner is very friendly and accommodating! She was very responsive and accommodating. She even had a concierge met us upon arrival and remained available for any issues/questions we might have during our stay. Without a doubt, we would highly recommend this condominium to any family looking for a fantastic beach vacation. We have stayed here before and will be visiting again!

Dan, Thrilled you and Emily picked us for your vacation. Loved the pic of you guys on the beach. Great looking family! I value repeat guests and truly appreciate the trust you place in us. You plan all year for a beach vacation and its our job to deliver for you. Thank you for saying we "delivered". Would love to host you again. All the best, Eileen

Relaxing on the Emerald Coast    Jun 02, 2018

review star

Beautiful accommodation. The property was well stocked - both inside and out. Plenty of extras inside - from spices for cooking to a plethora of books, movies, and games to entertain your family when not on the beach. As for outside - there were also plenty of chairs, umbrellas and beach accouterments (noodles, floats, boards to ride the waves, etc.). For those not familiar with the area - the condo complex is right on the beach, so you can go from standing in the unit to toes in the water in just minutes. We have stayed in Blue Mountain beach several times in the last few years and these condos are right in the middle of a section of beach that has really clear water at least a 1/2 mile in either direction along the beach. Furthermore, each time we've stayed in these condos - we have always found the beach to be not crowded at all - so it's easy to get a spot with a bit of space to either side of your chairs. (Very different from some of the complexes further down the beach to either side - and way less crowded than Destin proper or Seaside.) Finally, the owner went out of her way to ensure we were well taken care of - from regular check-ins with us prior to and after our stay via email - to a concierge who met us at the condo to check in and walk us through any questions we might have (including being on call, should we need assistance with anything during our stay). As you might imagine, the owner is extremely organized and had a binder with activities, etc. - if you need some help with things to do/places to eat/etc.

Eileen McDermott's reply:

Michael. Really enjoyed working with you! So sorry the weather wasn't the best when you were at the beach. Please come back when the sun is high in the sky and the rain is nowhere to be seen. And all of the remodeling in the building planned for this winter is done. All the best, Eileen
