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)

Lovely and spacious beach house close to beach as well as shopping areas!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Blue was our home away from home for this wonderful beach vacation! The house is spacious and well decorated. Still smelled of new construction when we first arrived! Kitchen is well equipped for food prep and cooking. Random note...super quiet appliances! We liked that😋. The pool area provides a nice alternative for those who wish to take a break from the beach! Not too deep, so very kid friendly. Again, very spacious with separate living areas upstairs and down (as well as TVs in all rooms) so we never felt "on top" of one another. Louise is extremely prompt in all correspondence and very personable! She has a genuine desire to help you make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The only negative any of us could think of in regards to this home....needs new mattresses for sure!!!! Most enjoyable beach house I have stayed in, but worst sleep due to the bed! My husband and I stayed in the downstairs master, and we literally felt like we were laying in deep holes on each side of the mattress. Sis in law said their mattress upstairs felt overly used in that way too. Okay, one more thing, could use more beach towels. House sleeps twenty, but there were only eight? Happy they were there at all, but just a thought! Overall, great trip, great house! Thank you Louise and Joe for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a great time. I want everyone to be comfortable and enjoy themselves while at our home. As you mentioned much time and effort was put into the comfort of all of our guests from the house down to the furniture including the beds. We paid extra special attention to the mattresses because we know we want comfortable beds. I'm sorry you didn't sleep well. This is the first I have heard of this in my communications with all my guests. Even in our frequent visits to the house I hadn't noticed that, but maybe something happened recently. We have mattresses that are so new they are still under warranty. They are Serta/Sealy pillowtop mattresses that are five months old. I do supply some pool towels and ask my guests to provide their own beach towels. I have shipped towels to the house. Unfortunately, they have a tendency to disappear. I will be there in two weeks and will check everything out. We do come every three months to make sure everything is perfect for our guests. Thanks for your comments and we hope to see you next year.

FANTASTIC Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had such a fantastic time at Casa Blue that we've already booked another trip! The home was everything as described in the photos and by the owner. It was a beautiful and very relaxing atmosphere. Everything was in excellent condition and very well maintained, from the pillow top mattresses to your own personal pool. The owner was easily accessible and accommodating. She even called to check on us during our stay. We enjoyed the recommendations and found them very helpful. We give Casa Blue our highest recommendation and can't imagine that anyone would not love this Crystal Beach home.

Loved our Destin Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our crew of 13 had a very enjoyable week at Casa Blue over 4th of July week. The 5 bedrooms were the perfect size for us with plenty of bathrooms for everyone. We liked that the house was newer and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked and we never seemed to run out of dishes. We loved the huge island in the kitchen!

We went to the beach everyday and having the beach cart that was provided was huge. It made it so much easier to transport our beach chairs, umbrellas, and other gear. The outside shower was a smart addition to this house, coming in handy when we all returned from the beach. Loved that the pool area was shaded in the early morning and late evening.

The top balcony was a bonus over the 4th of July week. We had a perfect view of the fireworks in the distance and the airshow that went on above the neighborhood.

The owners put in much thought to their new beach house and responded quickly to all my questions.

Best vacation rental EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5
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!!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you all enjoyed yourselves. We tried to think of everything from the moment you get off the plane to stepping into our home. We want everyone to have a no worries attitude and fully enjoy themselves at the beach. I wanted to make sure I had everything to travel to the beach whether I had younger or older children. I also want everyone to be comfortable like it is your own home. That is why I chose the comfy beds, furniture and had enough seating to hold your big families. Come back again! Louise and Joe

Awesome Home in Crystal Beach

  • 5 of 5
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.

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!
