Looking for the perfect escape complete with sugar-white sand beaches (private beach access), pools, whirlpools and a condo that exemplifies contemporary flare and comfort? You’ve found the right place in our home away from home, “Blue Paradise”. “Blue Paradise” is located in Gulfview II Condominiums on Scenic Gulf Drive off the Emerald Coast in Destin, Florida.


Directly across from the emerald colored shores and sandy white beaches, Gulfview II is a three story complex offering you everyone’s desire—private beach access, a family atmosphere and affordable rates.

The owners have spared no expense in their attempts to create for their guests and friends the perfect escape. “Blue Paradise” brings contemporary flare to the beach; its clean lines and creative flare provide the much needed escape everyone desires. It's the perfect setting whether you are couple seeking a romantic getaway or if you are a family seeking the ideal vacation spot. You’ve found it!

Gulfview II features a beachside walking trail and cycle paths, grilling areas, two beautiful pools (one heated seasonally) and a heated whirlpool. Added features include beachside restaurants within walking distance (Pompano Joes, Joe’s Crab Shop). Or, enjoy shopping at Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Bass Pro Shop, Destin Commons and more.

If snorkeling, shelling, parasailing, jet skiing, biking, fishing, boating, golf (and more) are your desire, Destin has it all. And if even more fun for the family is what you seek, Destin’s water slide parks, movie theater, miniature golf and bumper carts are just the beginning.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: The Blue Paradise condo is owned by Drs. Derrick and Sherri Davis. This family run business is designed with one thing in mind, pleasing our guests and providing them with the utmost in customer service, amenities, and comfort. Our goal is simple. Make your vacation so enjoyable that you will want to come back next year.

Why Gulfview:
We wanted to buy a condo with very specific characteristics and Blue Paradise fit all those characteristics. We loved the fact that this was a corner first level unit steps away from the beach. That is the most appealing aspect of this location. We love being on the corner because you have a little more condo space and more windows. We love Scenic Gulf Drive...it parallels the beach, has walking trails and a warm and inviting feel. But the most important aspect of selecting this condo had to do with its location...it is directly across from the emerald coast and the beach is simple beautiful. It's breathtaking.
