BLUE SURF 16A: STEPS TO THE BEACH AND POOL

Beach Retreat Cottages Condo Rental Photos and Description

1-bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4, 10 steps from the pool, 100 yards from beach

The Blue Surf complex, with only 26 units, has been a family favorite for a number of years. You'll enjoy spacious grounds, close beach access, lush tropical landscaping, a seasonally heated pool, shuffleboard court, and convenient access to area restaurants, shopping, golf courses, and other activities. Pompano Joe's, a landmark seafood restaurant right on the beach, is only steps away.

Our 1-bedroom 16A unit just went through a renovation in the fall and winter of 2012 and 2013. The unit was painted throughout. A new stacked washer dryer was added; new furniture and decor in the living room and 2 new flat screen HDTVs in the living room and bedroom. The seasonally heated pool is a few steps from your private patio. The beach is 100 yards away with beach access directly across from the Blue Surf property.

From March through October we offer complimentary daily beach service of two chairs and a beach umbrella that is set up for you on the beach. WiFi Internet access is offered free to our guests. Blue Surf Unit 16A has a designated off street parking place right outside the front door.

If you are planning a larger family get-together, we have 4 units at Blue Surf. Ask about renting 2, 3 or all 4 units simultaneously. Renting multiple units is a great solution for family gatherings. For more information and pictures on all four Blue Surf units, give us a call at the number below or see VRBO Listing #126062, #168702, and #332535.

About Christine or Bill Dean

My husband, Bill, our two children and I (Christine) live in Minnesota. We have been coming to Destin for 13 years. We purchased our first Blue Surf unit in 2002. Since that time we have added two more Blue Surf units because we like the complex so much.

Christine or Bill Dean purchased this condo in 2002

Why Christine or Bill Dean chose Beach Retreat Cottages

Blue Surf is an exceptional property: It's small (only 26 townhomes)and well located right across from Miramar Beach Park and close to other area amenities. The units are spacious and every two-bedroom unit has a fantastic, unobstructed view of the Gulf and our well landscaped courtyard. There is also plenty of green space for family games and fun and a lovely pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This unit is laid out well. The building is older, but well maintained an the inside is current, clean, and tasteful. We love the umbrella service, and had a great time with shuffleboard (stored in the facility laundry room). The pool is well kept, and the grounds are cared for. It is a real value, and almost as good as beach-front. The button-code entry is great...no need to be afraid of losing our key. The restaurant across the street was great, and we simply strolled across the street with no need drive in a hot car. The sands are white and beautiful. As the other reviewer mentioned, there is noise from upstairs, but it was not too bad, and there is nothing the owners can really do about that. Wish we were there right now, but we will have to wait until we can return.

Great digs!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here. The condo was modern, quiet, very clean, and had a great floor plan for a 1 bedroom. The short walk across the lawn to the beach was pleasant and the white sand beach is beautiful.

Another fun stay in Destin

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend at Blue Surf. This was our fourth visit to the complex, and our first time staying in a 1 bdrm unit, which was on the bottom floor outside the pool area. The 1 bdrm provided plenty of space for my husband, myself, and our 4 year old (who slept on the sofa bed). The kitchen was well stocked and very clean. The linens were a bit itchy so I was glad we'd brought an extra blanket. My only complaint is that being on the bottom floor subjects you to all sorts of noise from your upstairs neighbors and cleaning crew at all hours of the day and night. It was hard to sleep in past 6am due to the stomping around from upstairs. Our cleaning lady Tina was especially friendly and accommodating. Overall, we had a good trip and will return to Blue Surf next year for our annual beach trip. Also, a special thanks to the owner, Christine, for being so accommodating to our 2am check in time.

Perfect Balance

  • 5 of 5
The combination of being right across the street from the beach with complimentary beach service, being a small complex that didn't make it feel crowded, and having a pool close to the unit made it the perfect balance with something for everybody. The complex was well maintained and quiet. Would definitely stay here again!

Awesome Destin experience at Blue Surf!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at properties owned by the Deans on previous Destin vacations and have always been thoroughly satisfied! This visit was also a great experience and I would recommend any of the Deans properties at Blue Surf to all who want a great vacation experience!

Happy as always

  • 5 of 5
This is the 3rd time we have stayed in one of Christine's Blue Surf units and as always it was wonderful. The unit was clean and ready for us upon arrival. Christine dropped by to let us know she was available if we needed anything. We love the location of Blue Surf. It's not right on the beach but it's as close as you can get without paying beachfront price. We will definitely stay again and will always check with Christine first to see if one of her units is available. Have recommended many times.
