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.

Your inquiries are important. We take every inquiry seriously and reply to each personally. We enjoy speaking with guests so don't hesitate to call us! If we don't reply quickly or answer the phone, we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Fantastic Home Away

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay for my girlfriends and I. There were 9 of us staying and coming to Destin for the first time and we loved it. There was plenty of room, beautiful decor and comfy beds. Walking to the beach was easy and great. Barry was also very helpful and accommodating when it came to checking out and was quick to answer emails. All in all, this was a wonderful experience and I hope to come back again!

Great House for Large Gatherings / Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time while staying at the CASA BLUE this past NYE, It was 16 adults and it never felt crowded in any way. Our stay we from 12/29 to 01/02 and the weather was very cold outside so we did spend most of our time inside the house. Having a heated pool was great, (please know there is a extra charge for that), we did our reservation thru our cell phone app and could not find that charge anywhere. We love the fact that ALL rooms have their own bathroom inside. Barry is a great host, he took really good care of us, He's always available to solve any issue that may come up, always replies emails within the hour or so...

I do recommend the house if you have a large family and want to spend some quality time in Destin. We'll definitely keep this one in mind for our Summer vacations.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 loved this home, the little ones swam in the heated pool all day long.

During the week we ate a few meals in, the kitchen had everything that you would want to prepare a meal.

We arrived late in the day when the Hurricane was coming in, Thank God it moved in a different direction.

A lot of palm branches and dirt blew into the pool, Barry had the pool cleaners over the next morning to clean the debris out of the pool. The only thing I might mention is that sofa and love seat are due for an update.

We would definitely stay at Casa Blue on our next trip.

Very spacious!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. There was so much room and it doesn't feel like you have 17 people in the house. Beds are very comfortable as well. Overall we had a great stay.

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.
