Overview

Emerald Coast-Destin Area 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 recently went through a major renovation. The unit was painted throughout. A new stacked washer dryer was added; new furniture and decor was added in the living room and 2 new flat screen HDTVs in the living room and bedroom.

Unit 16A has a private, high-speed Internet service from Cox Cable, which it shares with Blue Surf 16B.You should have no problem getting access to the Internet or streaming media through our private wifi system. You will find instructions for accessing this complimentary service (as opposed to the Blue Surf complex system) in your check-in letter.

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 mid-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. For your convenience, 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, ask about renting 2, 3 or all 4 of our Blue Surf units simultaneously. 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 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 Dean purchased this condo in 2002

Why Christine Dean chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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.

Excellent Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was so easy to locate the Blue Surf 16A on line. It only took minutes to make our resevations. The pictures only the web site were spot on, no surprises. We had everything we needed, everything was neat and clean, and we were able to check in early. Which was great because we had a long drive. Christine was great, she was very quick to respond to all our emails. She was very kind and courteous. We have recommended the Blue Surf 16A to many of our freinds and family. The beach was better than we expected, it was just a short walk . It was clean and very well maintained. The pool was just outside our door, and great to relax after a day at the beach. We only had take out from Pompano Joes, which was exellent and reasonabley priced and great service. We did go into Destin to Alan's Cool Ink for tattoos, we recommend it highly, Andrew did a great job on our tattoos. We are planning our vacation for next summer at Blue Surf 16A. Thank you Christine for a wonderful place to Honeymoon.

Exceptional condo

  • 5 of 5

16A is the perfect condo for a couple. Tastefully decorated and maintain. The pool is so close to the patio, we were able to enjoy it and still keep an eye on our pet.

Property was as advertised. Convienent to the beach. The pool is right outside the patio door. Pompano Joe's is a good restaurant on the beach across the street. The condo was just the right size for my wife and I. A good value. We will stay again !!!

Great vacation!!!!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed in 16a and we love it!!! The floor plan is layer out well for a one bedroom , very neat and clean. Loved the way Blue Surf is situated to the beach and really enjoyed the lay out of pool... Just walk out to the pool and great that it is first floor.We had a problem with wi fi staying connected this time and noticed that some repairs are needed to ceiling in living room and bathroom , and living room fan needs repairs. Would I stay there again? You bet ..... Love the location!!!! I'm sure repairs are being made as I write the review !!!!

Owner's Response: Repairs have been initiated. Ceiling problem was due to leaky upstairs toilet that we didn't find out about until it had already damaged the ceiling.

Best vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at blue surf as kids and after many years I decided to bring my little family back. Our unit in 16a was fabulous!!! Very clean and well stocked! The one bedroom worked well for us and my son slept on the sofa bed. Perfect lay out for the one bedroom. Being on the bottom floor was a little noisy because you could hear the people upstairs but nothing that we couldn't handle. It was so nice to have the pool right outside the patio because I could keep my eye on my son while I fixed lunch. The beach was just across the street and was fabulous, so beautiful, and the restaurant was probably the best dinner we had all week. Overall the best vacation ever!!! And will def be back next year. Already missing the beach.
