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

Perfect Spring Break Trip

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
This home was perfect for my group of friends on spring break. It is a short walk to the beach, no car or golfcart necessary. The beach by the house is much more private than the area of the beach a couple miles down where all of the hotels are located. The pictures of Casa Blue do not do the home justice! It was even better than I had anticipated. The rooms were all large and spacious and the living room and kitchen had a very "homey" feel. The furniture and interior decorations were best fly and not to mention extremely comfortable. The pool was wonderful and it stayed at 84 degrees our entire trip. We took full advantage of the back yard and grilled out several times. The kitchen was stocked with spices and cooking utensils as well. One thing I also really liked was the key pad lock on the door. There were 12 of us, so it was really nice not having to pass around a couple keys. Instead, you put a code into the door to unlock and lock. The owners were nothing short of amazing to us. Anytime you have a question or a slight problem, they are on top of it. I appreciated them so much throughout the booking process and the week of our stay. I would recommend this house to just about anyone! It will not let you down. It is perfect for a large family vacation or maybe even several familes. I do believe the house can definitely sleep 20 comfortably. Louise and Joe put so much time into making Casa Blue the perfect vacation home and it is definitely noticed the moment you walk into the front door! Thank you guys for sharing your home with us!

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

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 31, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 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.

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, highly recommend Casa Blue

My husband and I were married in July 2013 and this was the first chance for our blended family to all be together at the same time. Not only is Destin a beautiful place to visit, Casa Blue made the vacation absolutely perfect. We had 9 people (including 2 teenagers). Everyone had their own bedroom/bathroom, the kitchen and living area are very homey (I love the decor) and spacious and the backyard with private heated pool were wonderful. Everything you need is included: the kitchen is fully equipped; the washer and dryer are centrally located; there's a BBQ grill on the patio; plenty of towels/linens; every bedroom has a flat screen tv; there's even a cooler, beach towels and beach chairs with a cart to carry them all to the beach. You have several options for the beach. There is a small beach about a block away or a larger beach just a short drive away. The seafood in the area is to die for. Thank you to Louise for putting together and sharing such a wonderful vacation spot!

Large, spacious, luxury home, perfect location, awesome vacation!!

  • Submitted: Mar 15, 2014

This house is amazing! Beautifully decorated, immaculately stocked and maintained! Everything is brand new, and you can tell the owners spared no expense and take a lot of pride in their home... From the luxurious, soft beds and linens, to the living room sofas, and chairs, to the completely stocked kitchen... Nothing was overlooked in this house! It is so comfortable, warm and inviting. I love to cook, and was so happy to find everything I needed in the kitchen. We paid extra to have the pool heated, as it was in the 60's during our March visit, and it was worth every penny! My kids were in the pool for hours each day, while my husband and I took turns in the hammock, or in one of several of the lounge chairs provided. The backyard and the pool are very large and private, such a treat compared to other houses in the area. Also, we love that there are 3 king suites, a kids' bunk room, and a double/double room. Makes it much easier to come with multiple families, without having to draw straws for the master! We have been visiting Destin for 13 years, and have stayed in multiple locations throughout the area. This location is by far the most convenient... minutes to the beach, great shopping, excellent restaurants, grocery stores, etc., and yet you feel tucked away in a quaint beach community. We rented bikes, and took short rides to breakfast and lunch with our kids each day. We love that the owners provided a wagon, chairs, a cooler, and even sand toys and shovels to take to the beach with us... Made packing and planning for this trip so much easier! This house is truly a gem... Such a great find! We've already booked a 2nd stay this summer, and I can't wait to get back to Casa Blue!

Casa Blus 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 radio us 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!
