About Louise Buslow

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. This is our fourth rental season and our third property. We really enjoy our home away from home.

We look forward to sharing our special piece of heaven at "Casa Blanca"!

Yours Truly,

The Buslow Family

The perfect home for the perfect vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I knew I made the right decision by booking this house the second I pulled into the driveway. The beautiful beach house is blocks from the beach and only a few minutes away from grocery stores and restaurants. The house is the perfect size for a big family vacation or just a get away with your friends. Great neighbors, great pool, great owner, all around great house. If you are looking for a great Crystal Beach vacation, Casa Blanca is place to stay.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Blanca was the perfect vacation home for us and undoubtedly it will also be for anyone who chooses to stay here. Although we were only 14 (3 families) we had a variety of ages that needed room to spread out and this home provided that. Everyone had their own space to retreat and plenty of room to congregate inside and out. The home is in spectacular condition with all the comforts of home. The location is a block from the sugary beach and the emerald waters do not disappoint. You are close enough to head to the beach in the morning and make a quick trip home for lunch without packing up. Not to mention Louise provides everything at the house to make your beach day fabulous... cart, cooler, beach chairs, boogie boards. It truly made it feel like you were staying at your friends home and not a 'rental'. Louise is easy to communicate with and wanted to make sure that we were well taken care of. With this being our first VRBO rental, she certainly has set the bar high for us. I absolutely cannot recommend this property or the owners enough. What a lovely home and experience we had! Thank you, Louise... we will be back!

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Great neighborhood and so close to beach. Enjoyed walk/bike path located 1 block from house and 1 block beach access. This property was clean and extremely comfortable from the moment we entered the door. So much room-- even with 8 adults and 4 kids-- we didn't use the 3rd floor. Best communication I have ever had with an owner thru VRBO from the initial reservation to the date of departure. Shopping and grocery stores less than 5 minutes away.

Amazing property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Blanca was the perfect location for our women's retreat and looked just like the pictures. The home was clean and in great condition. It is walking distance to just about anything you might need or want. And a short drive to everything else, but it is in a quiet and quaint neighborhood. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable - even the twin beds! The kitchen is stocked with the basic spices, pots and pans and all the plates and silverware you need. The pantry is large and allowed us to keep the kitchen items we brought separate. The short walk to the beach was ideal and the beach chairs were a pleasant surprise.

The owner, Louise, checked in before and during our stay and had many helpful suggestions for local dining. She was a pleasure to work with.

We hope to be repeat customers next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. I do want my guests to enjoy themselves and be comfortable. I'm all about connecting with my guests. I'm glad you mentioned the quiet quaint neighborhood. We feel truly blessed to be able to share our beach home. There is so much to do in Destin and it is a bonus that this house is 1/2 mile to the commons, a few miles to the outlets, a few miles to several golf courses and a few minutes to the beach. Really paradise is at your door. Sit down relax your at Casa Blanca where I am ready to host you again and again. Louise and Joe
