About Karen & Ralph Tomasovic

My husband, Ralph & I purchased the town house in 2015. We named the unit "Devine Destination," to honor the memory of my parents, Jim & Shirley Devine. After renovating the town house, Ralph, myself and our daughter, Emily manage and clean the town house to make sure it is maintained to our high standards. Our family lives nearby the property in Niceville, where we have lived for over 13 years. We began coming to the Destin area for vacations back in 1990, when we fell in love with the beautiful, white sand beaches and clear emerald water. We decided to move here and raise our two daughters in this family orientated area and have loved it ever since! Our family moved here from Illinois; trading in our snow boots for flip flops!

Why Karen & Ralph Tomasovic chose North West Florida

We purchased this property and the unit next to it to provide an income, which has helped to put our daughter, Emily through college!

What makes this townhome unique

The unique benefits that this property provides our renters is that it is close to Destin, Fl. where you have the lovely beaches and attractions, yet nestled in a quiet community away from the traffic of Destin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a pleasure having Ellanor, Al and their dog Gracie stay in our townhouse for 5 months! They stayed with us from June 17th-November 3rd while their new house was being built. We were happy to provide them with a lovely, comfortable place to stay in an area that was convenient for them during this time. We're delighted that they enjoyed their stay! We wish them all the best in their new home!

This place was very clean and comfortable, with wonderful, attentive owners!

  • 5 of 5

This place was very clean and comfortable. Check in was a breeze and everything was laid out for us. We had everything we needed except for food. It was nice not to have to haul around all of the necessities for a beach trip. The beach towels and umbrellas were a nice surprise.

We had WiFi, cable, HBO, gas grill, fans, and VERY comfortable beds!

The owners were very informative about the local restaurants and attractions. They even had a binder with suggestions, brochures, maps, and magazines that helped us plan out most of our days. Bluewater Bay is in a very convenient spot between Niceville and Destin, both just a few miles away. It was nice not to be right in the middle of all the traffic/hustle and bustle in Destin.

There was more than plenty of room for the 4 of us and the 5th person if they would have been able to make it. The house is modern with all the necessary appliances, nice roomy stand up shower, and a tub/shower in the 2 bathrooms.

The owners were very friendly kind, and attentive. This is where you want to stay if you are in the Destin area!

We thrive to make our guests as comfortable as possible, so that their vacation is as pleasant as possible; so we are glad you felt that way. My family & I clean, maintain and manage the townhome ourselves, so it warms our hearts to know you said the property was clean, well maintained and that your check in was quick. We are glad you felt the location in Blue Water Bay (Niceville) was conveniently located to Destin. Once again we are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our "Devine Destination," and we are looking forward to your return visit! Sincerely, Karen & Ralph

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay here! This place has everything you need and is in a convenient location. We traveled down for our daughter's softball tournament and were able to get everywhere we needed to be within 30 minutes. Ralph and Karen were super nice and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay away from all of the Destin traffic!

This place is amazing. Great location, perfect place to just relax

  • 5 of 5

I booked here so we had our own place for our annual family reunion I normally stay in a hotel but this place was so much better. They had everything we could have needed and stuff we did not even think of. Loved the location it was in a very private area with no outside noise. The sunroom was a great place for me to work while we were here. The owners were great to work with and very helpful. They even helped me on finding some shrimp right off the boat. I asked about coming back at Christmas but no surprise they are already booked up. Can't wait till the next family reunion this will be my spot every year.

A Perfect Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a birthday celebration and it was perfect! My parents live in town, so this was a perfect way to visit without invading their home. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay- even through a tropical storm! We will definitely be renting again! It was everything we thought it would be and more! The owners shared lots of information about things to do, see and eat locally. Our next trip we will definitely be going deep sea fishing with the captain they recommend! We look forward to renting again!!

Please keep in mind, we book up quickly, so contact us early. Generally, Red Snapper/Grouper season begins in June, at this time, we don't know when it ends. Also Captain Greg will book up quickly, once the season starts. We are so excited that you are planning to return next year! Ralph & Captain Greg can't wait for you to "catch the big one!"

We stayed at this condo because my son was playing ball in Destin. It's in a quiet and safe neighborhood. It was only a 15 mile drive to the ball field in Destin. We really liked the fact that this condo was a little bit away from the crazy hustle and bustle of Destin's traffic!! The condo itself has everything you need including a washer and dryer! There were fans, games, towels, 3 t.v.s, and lots of dishes in the kitchen! We will absolutely rent out this condo from Ralph and Karen the next time we come this direction!! And the owners are also super easy to do business with!!!!

Absolute Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you entered you could smell the cleanliness . I booked this place based on other reviews stating how clean it was and it did not disappoint. Check in was easy, it was nice having a TV in each bedroom with cable. The Wifi strength was good . There was an abundance of towels which is great for a family of 4 , having extra beach towels and chairs provided was great . It was the small details that made our stay very comfortable there was no skimping on things eg good toilet paper, plates, cups, garbage bags, washing detergent etc .

It was easy to get to the beaches about 20 mins if you used the toll bridge going the long way was about 40 mins but it was not too bad (you will go through Destin). All in all a very pleasant stay. Thank you Karen and Ralph

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie, Thank you for giving us such a thorough review and so quickly, we appreciate it! We are glad you felt so comfortable in our townhouse and thought it was clean; we work diligently to kept it clean for each and every guest. We are pleased that you had all of the supplies that you needed; we try to provide our guests with everything they might need for a trouble free vacation. The beautiful beaches are in Destin, which is only 7 miles away when you take the toll bridge, which is $4 each way. Once you are in Destin the beaches are free, parking is also free and there are so many attractions that you can stay there all day and into the night if you choose! On Tuesday nights, Harbor Walk which is in Destin has a parade and fireworks! We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to your future visit! Thanks! Karen & Ralph
