The Retreat Overview

The Retreat Homes for SaleNestled among native forests, The Retreat is an exclusive gated community, offering a unique blend of natural beauty and luxury along Florida's scenic 30A in Blue Mountain Beach. This idyllic haven boasts 3,000 feet of private beach along the Gulf of Mexico, featuring sugar-white sands comparable to those of the Bahamas or Bermuda. The pristine emerald waters of a rare coastal dune lake and the Gulf itself frame this picturesque setting. Residents enjoy privileged access to a gulf-front, resort-style beach club and reside in masterfully crafted luxury residences. Travel far and wide, yet you might never encounter a coastal setting so pure, with sand so white and water so vividly blue, its is The Last Perfect Beach along the Gulf Coast.

Careful thought and planning went into the design of The Retreat. Homes must adhere to architectural guidelines and blend in with the style and color of the West Indies, which cast a striking contrast to the white sandy beaches and clear, blue waters. With 90 acres allocated for 90 homes, many situated on high bluffs, residences are more secluded while offering plenty of living and outdoor space. Buyers looking for homesites can choose from a select list of proven architects and builders, which insure a beautifully designed, well crafted property. The Retreat was St. Joe's first development in South Walton County.
