Spectacular & Spacious | Luxury Beach House with Private Pool and Large Pool Deck| 5 BR 5.5 BA | #1 Beach in US

Welcome to Casa Blue! One of Destin's "Top Beach Rental Properties". 'Casa Blue' is BRAND NEW! Completed in March 2014, it is just one short block to the ocean. It is located in the preferred Crystal Beach community in Destin. There are no busy streets so it's great for walking, jogging, or bike riding! This luxury property is also within walking distance to plenty of restaurants, shops and entertainment.

This beautiful home had a record 59 5* reviews from the prior listing on VRBO. After purchasing this home, we have to start over with a new VRBO listing and reviews. Please email us - Same great property with new owners that take great care of all of our vacation properties! We have added free beach service as a rental bonus - two chairs and one umbrella set up at the beach a short walk from our home! Most rental companies will not tell you that unless you go to a public beach, the beaches in Crystal Beach are private. The only public areas on these private beaches are the first 20' from the water's edge and 25' on either side of a beach access boardwalk.

Casa Blue is large, 3100 sf and spacious (more living space than most similar beach homes in this area) with living and entertaining areas to accommodate larger groups. The interior of the home is beautiful and upscale with a large private heated pool and extra-large patio area. There is a screen porch attached to the home overlooking the pool area and large yard.

Casa Blue features an open floor plan with spacious living areas with a cool beach vibe and is family-friendly. A fully equipped spacious kitchen has a 9' granite island and seating to accommodate 18 comfortably. The living area has ample seating and is open to the kitchen/dining area so everyone can interact no matter which room they choose to be in. There are THREE master bedrooms with king beds each with their own private bathroom! Master 1 is on the first level and has a king bed and a large private bathroom. Masters 2 and 3 are upstairs; each with a king bed and private bathroom. Bedroom 4 has two double beds with a private bath and right across the hall Bedroom 5 has two sets of bunk beds- twin over a double! Bedrooms 4 and 5 also have their own private bathrooms! There is an additional living area/6th bedroom area upstairs with a sofa sleeper and 50" TV--a perfect retreat for the kids to watch movies or game while the adults have quiet time downstairs. There are seven (7) flat screen TVs throughout with 50" TVs in both living rooms. There is a third story balcony with spiral staircase to enjoy peek-a-boo gulf views which you can access from the second floor living area. The rear of the house features a screen porch overlooking the heated pool, private outdoor shower, BBQ and pergola. There is a large pool decking area and also a large pinestraw area for outdoor games. There is ample parking for up to 6 cars.

This home is on high speed wifi, all 7 flat screens have cable and the two larger TVs include HBO! The upstairs entertainment area has Xbox and many electronic games and movie DVDs to keep the whole family entertained.

Our large third floor deck overlooks beautiful, peek-a-boo ocean views and we are just a short stroll to the beach. Check out the interior and exterior pictures and you'll see what we mean.

It is our number one goal to make sure your beach vacation is one of the best you have ever had! To that extent we provide a barbecue grill, a beach cart and wagon to help you get your gear to the beach, 2 Beach Cruiser bicycles and we also include two beach chairs and one umbrella complimentary for you at the beach access just a short stroll from the home! Most beach homes do not include this in your rental! We also have many sand chairs and pool/beach toys for your use. The parking area can park up to 6 large cars.

Our luxury accommodations are just one short block to the beach in premier Crystal Beach and we are within walking distance to everything you need. We are close to all Destin amenities, including beach restaurants and Destin Commons; a premier outdoor shopping mall that's walking distance away. Destin Commons has an amazing selection of eating choices, stores and a large movie and entertainment center. Enjoy golf, fishing, water sports, theme parks and boardwalks - all within a mile or two from this central location.

At 'Casa Blue' you get the best of both worlds. The top-rated beach in the U.S. and your own personal, fully equipped brand new beach house to gather with family and friends and enjoy all you deserve from a beach get-a-way vacation. Casa Blue is the perfect home for family vacations, weddings or family reunions.

Great house to enjoy a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We were there July 7th for a week. We had 15 family members and there was enough space for everyone. The bedrooms and baths are very nice. The only negative would be the couches in the family space downstairs. It’s probably time to think about replacing them.

Casa Blue is the best vacation home we have booked since booking family vacation homes for thirteen years! Everyone was thrilled with the home. All of the beds were very comfortable and we loved having a bathroom for every bedroom. The pool was used every day several times a day. Kitchen had everything we needed. The beach was in easy walking distance. The pictures do not show all of the awesome things about Casa Blue! Thank you, Barry! Rita July 2018

Great layout for families

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 16 (4 families with kids from ages 2-9) had a blast. The rooms were comfortable and quiet and it was nice to have both an upstairs and downstairs area to hang out, especially with the kids. It was also very easy to keep an eye on the older kids in the pool from the porch or even just inside in the dining room. We found plenty of beach chairs, the rolling cart, cooler, and lots of pool toys to be a plus during our stay. We also really appreciated the giant island in the kitchen for prepping meals and for feeding everyine. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans if you plan to do a decent amount of cooking too. There is even a cool raised bar across the back of kitchen with counter height chairs that has plenty of plugs for charging the many phones and assorted electronics our big group had. Plus it was more seating in the am ( and cocktails in the pm!).

The suggestion I have pertains to the living area. There is enough seating for everyone which we appreciated and plenty of space. The furniture in the seating area of the living room is quite “used” and not the most comfortable. The same can be said of the wicker chairs in the dining area. Again plenty of seating, but wicker can be uncomfortable when wearing shorts and some of them are quite used. Realizing this is a rental home it’s understandable that things won’t be perfect. It was not a huge deal as we had a lot of fun and everything else worked etc. Property Manager was responsive and friendly. Overall we enjoyed our stay. If you plan to rent here and have little ones a golf cart rental might make travels to and from the beach easier, however we did find the main road that needs crossing to get to the beach to be pretty easy, we saw lots of careful drivers and many people stopping to let people cross. Close to shopping of every kind and some decent food too. Great time at the beach!!

Couldn't have asked for better

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Casa Blue with 5 families. It was so nice to each have a bathroom and plenty of space for sleeping for 13 adults and 5 kids and a private pool. The house had everything we needed for cooking family meals, trips to the beach and relaxing. We could not have asked for a better location, on top of it all! Would definitely go back!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Blue from April 28 through May 5th. The weather was perfect with sushine and 80 degrees every day. We had 6 adults and 8 children ages 7 weeks to age 8. We all enjoyed the heated pool and the beautiful beach was only a few minutes walk away. We spent lots of time both places. The Publix grocery store and Walmart were less than a mile away and very convenient to go pick up food and other things as needed. We ate most of our meals at the house or on the beach. The umbrella and chairs on the beach that are provided with the house were great to be able to use at no charge. We did enjoy going to Lulu's for dinner one evening and the little children enjoyed playing in the sand while waiting for our food. Barry was great to work with while planning our vacation as well as very accommodating with anything we needed while at his house. Destin Commons shopping center is very close by and we spent a couple hours there but the weather was so amazing we seldom left the house with the pool except to go to the beach! We loved being in Destin and would love to come back again!

Casa Blue is located in the Crystal Beach area of Destin. There are plenty of large side walks for walking in this residential area. Bars and restaurants within walking distance of your home. No high-rise condos in the Crystal Beach area and the neighborhood is very safe. If you enjoy running, walking or biking you will love this neighborhood. A few short blocks north of Casa Blue is the Destin Commons. A unique outdoor entertainment area with shops, restaurants and a movie theater. A couple of miles west of your home you will find go-carts, mini-golf, laser tag, a water park and other entertainment areas. Traveling a couple of miles east from your home you will arrive at Silver Sands outlet mall with every outlet you can think of along with several restaurants. However, you might not want to leave Casa Blue- you might be content to just stay and enjoy the heated pool, hammock and screen porch for a relaxing vacation.
