Description

Nestled amongst the long leaf pines of Point Washington State Forest, Saltire Cottage gives guests the rare opportunity to not only unwind at the beach, but reconnect with nature in an upscale abode. Professionally decorated and newly constructed, this four-bedroom, three-bath home has all the creature comforts one can imagine. This is the place to make your escape from the norm and reconnect to those you love.

Saltire Cottage at Blue Mountain Beach in South Walton is a nature lover’s paradise. The sugar white sands and turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico are only a leisurely 15 minute stroll away, and the community pool is even closer at about a five minute trip by foot. If hiking and exploring are more your speed, take advantage of the miles of hiking trails right out the back door at the state forest. Stand up paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking and fishing can be enjoyed at many of the nearby rare coastal dune lakes. These marvels of mother nature can only be found in a handful of places on earth including Madagascar, New Zealand, Australia, Oregon and here.

All beds in the home are memory foam, and all bedrooms are equipped with Samsung LCD flat screen TVs. Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, hardwood floors, ample outdoor seating and plush furniture all surrounded by varied hues of Cerulean blue seem to encompass what it's like to live in casual luxury on the coast.

Book now and enjoy FREE golf, FREE snorkeling, FREE parasailing, FREE segway tour, FREE Baytowne Adventure Zone for each night of your stay!
(The Family Fun Package does not apply to stays that are longer than 14 nights)

We stayed here last week with my brother's family and had a great time! The home is comfy and adorably decorated. We loved the chairs in the front room!--they're swivel rockers. We also thought the location the beach was good. You could walk, or drive (there's a small parking lot at the head of the beach trail), along with an ice cream shop :). The pool in the neighborhood was great--we used it each day once we were tired of beaching. And we really loved how "nestled" in the woods the house felt. That view from the back porch is really pretty. And the lake/swamp down the street was also gorgeous. My kids and I loved walking on the bridge and listening to all the cool sounds. Publix grocery store is also a 5 minute drive which we loved. Oh, and there are 4 bikes at the house! We ran out of time to use them, but that's a great feature! There's a cool trail that goes from Santa Rosa to Seaside which would have been fun to do. Next time!

Well appointed home that is perfect for multiple families with kids. The beach is definitely a half mile away, so plan on driving or renting a golf cart to lug your things (and crew) to and from the house. We opted to use a different pool with some friends as the local one is super small and only 3.5 feet. All in all a great stay

Conveniently located but a little more remote from the beach than advertised. Not much area around the house for any outdoor activities. Problems with King bed frame (broken). Overall, house was very accommodating for a large extended family.

Away from Destin but close to beach and local restaurants. 1 block from local ice cream shop that was amazing. Definitely would stay again.

We were 3 generations together for a family reunion. Top notch home with beautiful amenities that is just a short drive to the beach. Our favorite restaurant and seafood market is Goatfeathers.

My only complaint is the king bed upstairs - it was very uncomfortable and the mattress should be replaced.

Saltire Cottage was the perfect home for our large party of 14. Ample room for everyone to spread out, beautiful scenery and walking path right in our back yard, minutes away from the beach. Perfect if you like to be away from the traffic in Destin but just close enough to be a 15 minute ride down the strip.

This home is beautifully decorated with plenty of space in each rooms. We enjoyed staying in this area because it was quiet and not hectic like you would get in destin. The beach was very close . Only a 5 minute walk but we usually just drove out there with all the stuff we had to haul with us. Parking was plenty and not have to park far at all. The community pool was kind of small but good enough for the family since we never saw anyone there. Overall we loved this house and the blue mountain beach area. Definitely coming back to this house next summer.

We just returned from Saltire Cottage and must say that we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our family of 4 joined another family of 5 and there was plenty of room for everyone.

The 2 adult couples had king-sized master bedrooms, our 2 girls shared the queen-sized bedroom, and the boys enjoyed the bunk bed room.

The kitchen is beautiful and well-stocked. The laundry room featured full-sized front-loading washer and dryer, which allowed us to wash all the towels and clothing that needed freshening up with all the sun and sand. And, there is a really nice gas grill with infrared burners that we used one evening to have a hamburger and hot dog cookout.

The family room is super cozy with lots of room for everyone to sit and every room had a TV.

You can certainly walk to the beach, but we found it more convenient to drive with all of the beach stuff and small children.

The property was as good, if not better than advertised. It was well maintained and felt like brand new. Can't wait to return!

Best of all, it just felt like a home away from home - one that we would definitely return to!

After staying in more developed communities such as Seaside and Rosemary for the last six years, this was a breath of fresh air for my family of five. Saltire Cottage was very quiet and the community it's located in was not crowded at all and short walk away from the beach. We even had guests stay with us for a few days and we were not on top of each other and had plenty of room. Saltire Cottage is located next to a National Forest which also gave plenty of privacy. I would recommend this place to anyone, especially large families with kids. We plan to rent this place again in the future.

Home was beautifully decorated and appointed. It was very roomy in a laid back, quiet community near beautiful public beach entry. We had 11 people (8 adult; 3 children) with room to spare. Comfortable beds; plenty of seating in living areas; 3 1/2 baths; nice kitchen. Enjoyed grilling on the back porch and the wooded nature trails behind property. Easy 2 block walk or bike ride (4 bikes provided) to beach entry. We did drive when we were lugging coolers/chairs/umbrellas etc.) -- no issue finding free parking. Discovered that beach chair/umbrella rental was available so could have packed lighter. Neighborhood is still under construction -- but noise was not bothersome. Community pool a little small, but nice and perfect for kids -- was never crowded. New Publix less than 2 miles away was convenient, and quick mart just a few blocks from house. We took advantage of the daily free promotions offered through Destin Getaways -- golf, dolphin watch/snorkeling cruise, parasailing -- all in Destin which was about 40 minute drive with traffic. Seaside was about 5 miles east. We drove through but didn't stop. Cute shops and restaurants (cool food trucks) but area was very congested. We enjoyed the quiet, less crowded area of Santa Rosa (Blue Mountain Beach) but had access to activities in Destin or Seaside or PCB (though we didn't venture to PCB). I would definitely recommend this home and would love to return.
