The Retreat

The Retreat is an exclusive gated community and one of the premier communities on 30A.  It’s also the first of it’s kind in Northwest Florida developed by the St. Joe Company. The 90-acre environment includes a native oak and pine forests, a rare coastal dune lake, several protected areas of nature preserve and sugar white sand dunes.  The Retreat also occupies 3,000 feet of beachfront on the Gulf of Mexico in Blue Mountain Beach with 1,000 feet designated as a conservation easement never to be constructed upon to preserve the dune landscape.

Half of its 90 properties are waterfront including 24 Gulf front properties and 23 lakefront properties.  West Indies style homes complement the community’s natural topography. Retreat homes adhere to strict architectural guidelines and is carefully safeguarded by only permitting work to be carried out by quality architects and master builders on the community’s approved list. The result is one of the best collection of luxury beach homes along the Beaches of South Walton, offering high quality residences and amenities designed for those who demand an exceptional lifestyle.
