Recent Review

About the Owner

Our names are Joe, Louise, Drew and Dylan. We are a beach family and love to be near the ocean. We relocated from the north shore of Boston to Texas recently. We missed having the beach in our backyard and decided to build our own dream beach vacation getaway. My husband grew up in Florida and took me to Destin where I fell in love with the white sandy beaches and turquoise water of the gulf. We specifically fell in love with the Crystal Beach area for the shopping, dining and family attractions. We look forward to sharing our special piece of heaven at 'Casa Blue'.

Yours Truly,

The Buslow Family

Vacation of March 22-29th at Casa Blue our most favoriate place in 8yrs of Destin vacations

  • 5 of 5
Plenty of everything, seating for everyone, kitchen fully stocked with enough plates and silverware for 20 people plus, pots, pans. Didn't have to run to the store to get supplies on the first day there. We were able to come in unpack, swim and go to the beach and know we had a fresh, clean comfortable bed to climb in when we were ready to retire for the night. Nice quiet neighborhood, very peaceful. We felt very safe and secure. A wonderful home away from home. My family found games to play during cool or rainy days and TVs for everyone (no one missed their favorite show while papaw was watching HIS favorite show) with the two living areas there was quality family time all over the house. It was Mamaw heaven, I loved it. We were planning a week for next year before we left.

Owner's Response: Pam, thank you for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Blue since we tried to think of the needs of everyone while planning our perfect beach getaway. We involved our kids in the decision making for their perfect place to vacation. That is why we chose to have two separate living areas with a TV for gaming and movie watching. A lot of thought and effort went into planning the 3 master king suites, room with the double beds, and bunk room with the two twin over full beds. We wanted to be able to give everyone a place to stay and have their own bathroom. We don't live near our family so when we are all together we planned for the conveniences of a home away from home. Come back again - the door is always open!Louise and Joe:0)

Awesome property and stay.... Casa Blue is perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous home......my 3 children were crying when we pulled away after our weeks stay in October 2014 as they didn't want to leave! My extended family and I spent a week at Casa Blue completely enjoying the home, pool and Crystal Beach. Case Blue had everything imaginable for our use- from the fuly stocked kitchen to the amenities around the pool! Louise has done her homework in putting together a perfect vacation home....truly a wonderful, comfortable home away from home. The beds are extremely comfortable, house is impeccably clean (you could smell the clean when you walked in) and has the perfect set up to be able to spread out into your own private space or in a group setting. We loved the Playstation, all the games and movies that were well stocked. We had the pool heated for our stay and it was plenty warm to swim in evenings. House is in great location! Beach is literally one block away from the home and a very easy walk with no traffic! Louise is extremely responsive when I needed her, so easy to work with and truly cared about our stay.....to me this is the reason to rent directly from the owner and not a management company. We would definitely rent this home and from Louise again....starting to work on plans for next year with the family!

Owner's Response: It's make me happy to hear what a good time everyone had. My family and I really did try to think through all the amenities all the way down to the movies and games for the xbox one. Our kids really enjoyed helping pick out the games and movies for the house. We wanted everyone to be able to relax and spread out while they are on vacation. We want you to feel comfortable and have a no worries attitude while enjoying our slice of heaven.

Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the most relaxing vacation we have had in years at Casa Blue. The home is beautifully decorated and very serene and peaceful. We were only one block from the beach and one block from Destin Commons Shopping Center, which provided every amenity you could ever need. The house truly provides the best of both worlds. We look forward to visiting again next year!

Family Vacation

We have a large family and this beautiful home provided plenty of room for all. It's a short walk to the beach where we all enjoyed kayaking. I highly recommend this house.

Just what you need!

Casa Blue is one of the best vacation rentals in the Destin area. It's close to the beach, beautifully decorated and very spacious even for a large group. The layout is great, it was designed to accommodate a bunch of families, yet every family has privacy and options for entartainment.
Communication with the owner is superb; always available to answer any questions one might have.

Perfect home for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Blue was the perfect home for our family vacation. My parents, 2 brothers & their families, and my husband & I spent an amazing week at Casa Blue. Each family unit had their own Master bedroom with en suite bathroom. This feature was the only way a family vacation under 1 roof would work for our family!

The kitchen had everything we wanted, down to a ginormous pot to cook pasta and a griddle for family size pancakes :-) The wifi worked well and my nephew was impressed at how many tvs were in the house :-) There was plenty of parking spaces for our 4 cars!

The pool and patio were great and it allowed for the kids to swim in the morning while the parents took their time waking up, sipping coffee by the pool.

Yes, technically, the public beach was block from the house but it was another 1/2 block to actual beach access. The sand is the most divine thing you'll ever sink your feet into! When possible, I recommend driving the 2ish miles down the road to the State Beach. There is a per car admission fee but it allows for in/out privileges within the same day. The State Beach has a fraction of the number people on it!! PLUS, there is a very nice bathroom within a few steps. The State Beach, even with driving down the road, was our family's preference. Hands down, without a doubt.

I wished our bathroom had had 2 hand towel rings. The double sinks were great to have but I didn't like having the hand towel in the counter top because there was only 1 ring. I think having a hanging key rack in the entryway or near the bar would be a good idea. After my brother missplaced his keys for a few hours, we decided to have a key bowl so everyone had a place to put keys. The bar across the wall in the kitchen was GREAT!! There were a lot of electrical outlets so it ended up being a huge charging station for all of our electronics :-)

The washer & dryer was great, too. There are speed cycles which give a full cycle was in like 15 minutes and a speed dry. Amazing to go home with all clean laundry!

Louise was very easy to work with and quite responsive. My mom got sick and we needed recommendations on an urgent care. Louise texted and called me back very quickly. Also, my sis-in-law left a book and Louise's cleaners found it and now Louise is sending it to her in the mail.

Traffic in Destin is bad. I think tourism has grown faster than the infrastructure.

YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED WITH CASA BLUE!!

Owner's Response: Great feedback and suggestions. We do have a built in in the entry with hooks to put keys, hats, etc. whatever you would like to hang of your belongings. We are moving to hooks in bathrooms for the next house to accommodate more towels. Appreciate all suggestions.:0)

Casa Blue is located In a unique location in Destin. The the brand new Destin Mid-Bay bridge and it brings you within one mile of our beach house. South from the house, one short block is Crystal Beach. Plenty of large side walks and bike rentals and restaurants to suite any taste. No high-rise condos along crystal beach and the neighborhood is safe, with a tropical, festive feel. If you enjoys running, walking, sight seeing or bike riding, you'll love this area. Only a few blocks to the north and you'll run into Destin Commons. An outdoor area for food, shopping, movies and plenty of entertainment. This is the go-to place in Destin. Down the road a mile or two to the west you'll find several entertainment venues, including water slides, go carts, laser tag, you name it. Before the bridge to Fort Walton be sure to go to the Harbor Walk. An outdoor pier with food, entertainment and water sports. Down the road to the east about two miles you'll run into the Destin outlet mall with everything from Under Armor, Nike and upscale as well. All this in a radius of about three miles from Casa Blue! But honestly, when you get here, you probably won't want to leave and you can enjoy the private heated pool, the hammock, screened in porch, luxury living on the inside or simply hanging at the beach!
