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

This is our 16th year having Thanksgiving in Crystal Beach! We are so excited and blessed to have been able to stay in this beautiful home away from home! We absolutely loved it and hope to be back! This place is so beautiful! I hope we can come back next year! It is very nice and pretty! It is also a very big house!

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)

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first year of many family reunions to come and we could not have found a more perfect place. Seven adults, two toddlers and two infants with lots of space, comfy beds, private bathrooms and plenty of places to spread out made for a most enjoyable week. The layout is great and the house very quiet. There really are some basic pantry and paper products already there. The owner is the perfect hostess making sure we had everything we needed. The house is lovely, spotless and comfortable and is exactly the way it shows in the photos which is not always the case. In the past we have preferred to stay closer to the beach, but with such a good sized pool in the backyard and only a 5 minute walk to the beach it was an ideal location. Even the 3-year olds could make the short walk. The little tykes would go to the beach until noon then come back to the house for lunch and a nap, then spend the afternoon in the pool. We did splurge on renting the beach chair/umbrella set-ups available at the beach entrance so each morning when we arrived at the beach they were set up and waiting for us and we didn't have to cart those down ourselves. The house comes with a beach buggy to load up towels, coolers and toys which makes getting to the beach and back a breeze.

Thanks Louise! We had a wonderful time with one couple coming from as far away as Seattle. On the last day she asked if we could live there permanently.

Love the layout of house.... Never feel crowded. Love the open floor pattern. Pool right off the open living area. Used pool more than ever because kids were older. Easy beach access especially with golf cart.

The house was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Blue is the cleanest house we have ever stayed in on our summer vacation. The kitchen is complete with almost everything you have at home. We had plenty of room for the 13 of us and can not wait to return. The owner could not have been nicer. She has thought of everything.

Thanks so much!

Casa Blue Destin Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 stay here, four separate families. We had plenty of space, and it was amazing that each room had its own bathroom. We were a short walk to the beach, and the cart helped carry our beach supplies there. The house is extremely well kept and everything was gorgeous!

Amazing property that was able to go above and beyond in taking care of our needs.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so helpful with every question we had at any time. She checked in on us when we arrived to make sure everything was up to standards and went over the home with us. The home itself was absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed. We will definatley be going back to this property in the future. Also the pool was the perfect size and it was perfect for the kids after a few hours at the beach and us to just lay out and relax while they continue to have fun. I would recommend this home for your next vacation for sure!

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!
