traveler reviews for this destin house rental

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

Review submitted: March 31, 2014   Date of arrival: March 22, 2014

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners 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)

Best vacation rental EVER!!!

Review submitted: July 15, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

First off, the owners went above and beyond assisting me during the reservation process. They were available for any questions I had, via email or phone. The listing description and photos accurately reflected the house's appearance and amenities. The bedrooms are larger than I actually thought they would be! The fact that the owners provide beach chairs, cooler with wheels, beach umbrella AND a beach wagon was a huge help and kept us from having to haul our own beach supplies from home. The home was spotless and there were plenty of kitchen amenities (utensils, pots, pans, even spices!). The living area was spacious enough for our families and we spent most of our time in the house sitting/standing around the kitchen island, which is HUGE! The luxury of our own pool in the backyard just added to the overall wonderful time we had. The owners suggested fresh seafood from Blalock Seafood (yum) and a local seafood restaurant at the Harborwalk, Dewey Destin (double yum). We spent a lot of our time at the USSSA Baseball World Series with our travel team, so we weren't able to explore much of Destin besides the beach (which was a very short, at the most 5 minute walk). Never having stayed on the Gulf, I could not believe how clear the water was. It made our 8.5 hour drive worth it! After visiting Destin and staying at Casa Blue, we decided we can't stay anywhere else! Thank you so much Joe and Louise for making our trip to Destin at Casa Blue so memorable!!!

Awesome Home in Crystal Beach

Review submitted: June 25, 2014   Date of arrival: June 14, 2014

We just returned from a wonderful family vacation in Casa Blue. Louise was awesome from the minute we contacted her for info regarding her home. The house was super clean and decorated beautifully and we felt right at home. Home is approximately 2 blocks from public beach access and was easy to get to with our three young children. We also enjoyed the pool in the backyard and eating our meals on the screened in porch. We hope to return to Casa Blue next year.
