Don’t let the name of this fantastic Destin vacation rental fool you- everyone will be happy as clams while staying at Blue Starfish! In fact, it expertly strikes the balance of old and new; technology and tradition. The sleek kitchen of this luxury is fitted with stainless steel appliances including a five burner gas range and a double oven all of which is surrounded by unique slabs of grey granite counters. Contrast that with the quirky, refurbished, bursting-with-color furnishings and voila- a crisp, clean vacation home with just the right amount of personality. Actually, the five balconies and porches, four large bedrooms and an open floor plan guarantee that there will be plenty of room for all the personalities you plan to bring with you, too!
While it’s true that Blue Starfish is a short walk to the gorgeous beaches of the Gulf, its pool deck has been known to turn the emerald water even greener with envy! Get ready for a rant about the private deck’s amenities- a wall mounted flat screen TV is set on the back porch overlooking the crystal clear pool edged by a green lawn, a spa sits just above the pool with a small waterfall connecting the two, outdoor dining allows several families to dine alfresco on savory barbecue from the private gas grill, a custom-built wet bar with a refrigerator lets you refill your drink without having to go inside and finally a full pool bath right off the porch makes it easy to wash off sand before taking a swim! Whew! While listing that many amenities is exhausting, entertaining guests at Blue Starfish will be nothing but rejuvenating!
The joyous tones of blue that envelop the exterior and interior combined with lively beach décor featuring curious sea creatures are sure to put a spring in your step! Go explore the nearby attractions like Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl at the Destin Commons, Big Kahuna’s Waterpark, one of Destin’s famous golf courses, or a dolphin cruise on the harbor. Blue Starfish is set in the ideal spot for diving in to Destin’s fun!

Our group of 10 loved this location! It was ideal for the beach and getting out to the many restaurants. We had a slight hiccup with the pool heat - were told the heat was on, but after two days knew it was not and called. The controls were locked or we would have adjusted it ourselves, but they had someone come out and turn it on and were quick to reimburse us for the issue. They can't control the annoying 6 am garbage pickup at the hotel next door, but that was easily overcome by the nice accommodations. There are lots of hardwood floors, so be prepared to hear everything that goes on in the house, but again the other luxuries of the home outweighed this issue. The pool is clearly one of the largest and best and they have one of the greatest backyards in the area - we would re-rent just for that! Putting green was used nightly, as was the nice big sitting area and kitchen. Fun porches and location, location, location! We'll be back when coming to Destin!
