Gather the family. You’re going on a trip to Florida and they’ll wanna know. But first, be forewarned. Professional relaxers only need apply. That’s because when you’re not wasting the day away on one of the porches, nodding off on the beach or just admiring the brilliant architecture, you’ll probably just be napping in such a calming culture.

You don’t have to of course. Blue Mountain Beach offers plenty to do. It’s just that Dune Side is for lazy days. And Captain's Deck at Dune Side certainly helps. This 5-bedroom home was beautifully designed with the lounger in mind. Open and airy, much like the area’s famed coastal breeze, you’ll enjoy expert floorwork, bright bedrooms, and modern kitchen appliances that can easily feed the hungry mouths inside. And plenty of room to boot. Kick back in style as you lounge around the family room, are enjoying the flatscreen TVs, or even a refreshing shower in one of its stylish bathrooms. It matters not. Everything is relaxing around here.

But this much you should know. The star of the show is the porches upstairs and below. That’s where the relaxing really comes in. So footwear, beware. You’re not gonna be needed very often. Just picture yourself lounging around on one of your decks and taking in the fresh air with not a care in the world. Yeah, it’s high time you took those shoes off. Because a stay at Captain's Deck at Dune Side, means it’s time to kick ‘em off and just kick back in style.

A Perfect Get Away

We loved Captain's Cottage. It was even more beautiful than the photos. The screened porch overlooking a serene and beautiful garden was a pleasant surprise. It was the perfect spot for relaxation and enjoyment of the area. There was nothing overlooked...from the wonderful chef's kitchen to the beautiful decor. Every room was spotless and beautifully decorated. The property has a lovely pool and a natural access through the dunes to the beach. We will definitely be back!

Neighborhood Spotlight: Blue Mountain Beach
One of the westernmost neighborhoods on the Emerald Coast, Blue Mountain Beach is filled with a rarified beauty not too often seen along the Gulf.

Nestled quietly between the often more popular communities of Santa Rosa Beach and Grayton Beach, taking up in one of InvitedHome’s Blue Mountain Beach rentals means you’ll never be far from either, but just far enough from any unnecessary noise and unwanted crowds.
