Car: Not Necessary

Casa Blue is located In a unique location in Destin. The the brand new Destin Mid-Bay bridge and it brings you within one mile of our beach house. South from the house, one short block is Crystal Beach. Plenty of large side walks and bike rentals and restaurants to suite any taste. No high-rise condos along crystal beach and the neighborhood is safe, with a tropical, festive feel. If you enjoys running, walking, sight seeing or bike riding, you'll love this area. Only a few blocks to the north and you'll run into Destin Commons. An outdoor area for food, shopping, movies and plenty of entertainment. This is the go-to place in Destin. Down the road a mile or two to the west you'll find several entertainment venues, including water slides, go carts, laser tag, you name it. Before the bridge to Fort Walton be sure to go to the Harbor Walk. An outdoor pier with food, entertainment and water sports. Down the road to the east about two miles you'll run into the Destin outlet mall with everything from Under Armor, Nike and upscale as well. All this in a radius of about three miles from Casa Blue! But honestly, when you get here, you probably won't want to leave and you can enjoy the private heated pool, the hammock, screened in porch, luxury living on the inside or simply hanging at the beach!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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. We look forward to sharing our special piece of heaven at 'Casa Blue'. Yours Truly, The Buslow Family
