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

Fantastic Property Managed by Owner.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have had a 3-generation family reunion at one of this owner's properties and we simply can't say enough! The house is well appointed, the owner extremely responsive, and the location is great ... walking distance to Crystal Beach. If you are looking for an easy, relaxing vacation right down to comfy beds and linens to a cook's kitchen that is completely stocked with dishes, silverware, pots & pans, pool towels, etc., then this is it. This year we had 9 adults and four boys from 18 months to 4-1/2 years. There was space to spare! The little tots walk down to the beach ... and, yes, it really is only a 5-minute walk, in the morning then come back for lunch and naps. Then they spend the afternoon in the pool. There are so many choices that suit everyone. We always leave some of our groceries behind for the next visitor ... condiments, paper plates, etc., and there are always some waiting there for us. The owner provides lots of beach toys and chairs. This property has a wonderful grill so one night we grilled fresh grouper and fresh Florida shrimp followed by S'mores on our little camp charcoal grill. Everyone loved it. If you want the ultimate luxury rent some beach chair/umbrella set-ups. Thank you Louise!!! Once again we loved it! The Post family

Albrecht stay in Destin

  • 5 of 5

House was great. Grandkids loved the pool and pool toys. Close to beach, although public beach area is very limited. Beach chairs and cart were very useful. Would like to come back again.

Owner's Response: Glad you liked our house. We built a 7 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath, gulf view vacation rental with guests in mind. We offer a fully equipped chefs kitchen with a gas stove, newly built with new furniture, beach accessories, pool toys, new bedding, private pool, outdoor shower. We are a close proximity (short walk) to the beach and area amenities including shopping, restaurants, movies, golf and bowling. 20 feet from the high water line is open to the public on all of Destin's beaches. We look forward to hosting you again.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a perfect location, just a short walk to the beach. Very clean and full of all your vacationing needs. The pool was perfect size for our little ones and included tons of pool and beach toys. The layout of the home is great for a large group. Bedrooms are spread out on 3 different levels. Our group had a great time and really enjoyed staying at Casa Blanca!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. We did design the house with large families in mind. We wanted everyone to have their own room and a special place to get away on each level. Great for kids/teens or adults to go watch a movie or game on a different level of the house from the first floor. Also, having the pool was key for our family. We enjoy swimming in the morning and evening after spending time at the beach. We are glad you did too. :) Come back and visit again. The light is always on. Louise and Joe

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Our goal is to treat you. We want you to be comfortable, relaxed and feel like it's your home away from home. We have thought of everything from comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, new linens, towels and comfortable furniture. My boys had to make sure the house had a TV in every room (10) so no one misses a game or their own show. We are glad you enjoyed your time at our little slice of heaven that is centrally located to all places, shops and restaurants. Also, being a short stroll to the beach helps. Come back and visit again.:0)

Destin Dash at Casa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

Booked Casa Blanca over a year ago for seven couples all over the age of 55. The house was perfect! Large kitchen. Comfortable living room. Bedrooms all had comfortable mattresses. We parked three vehicles in front of the house and could have easily parked six. The salt water pool was perfect. The patio had plenty of seating plus two tables with large umbrellas. Great showers in the bathrooms. Also a outdoor shower on the side of the house. Easy walk to beach and to the 790 grill which has a good happy hour and a great waterfront patio. I could go on and on. Just a great house with a great owner in a great vacation area. Rent it!

Wonderful Experience at Casa Blanca!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I could not have enjoyed our stay more. The house is absolutely beautiful. Everything is clean and modern and so comfortable. The large kitchen is convenient to the back deck which made for easy transfer of meals so we were able to eat at the tables around the pool. The pool was the perfect size and we enjoyed many hours there. There are 4-5 deck chairs along with 2 patio tables with umbrellas so we always had room for our group outside. Every amenity you can think of for a perfect stay at the beach is available. The beach was a very short walk (2 blocks at the most) and even the walk there was nice as the whole neighborhood is filled with quaint houses and nice sidewalks. The owner is VERY responsive to any questions you may have and throughout the whole process, I always felt well informed. We look forward to spending another vacation at Casa Blanca!!
