Blue Surf 16A: Steps to the Beach and Pool

Bedrooms 1
Space 650 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 30 nights


About the property

1-bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4, 10 steps from the pool, 100 yards from beach

The Blue Surf complex, with only 26 units, has been a family favorite for a number of years. You'll enjoy spacious grounds, close beach access, lush tropical landscaping, a seasonally heated pool, shuffleboard court, and convenient access to area restaurants, shopping, golf courses, and other activities. Pompano Joe's, a landmark seafood restaurant right on the beach, is only steps away.

Our 1-bedroom 16A unit recently went through a major renovation. The unit was painted throughout. A new stacked washer dryer was added; new furniture was added including a king bed in the bedroom, a new sofa, and 2 new flat screen HDTVs in the living room and bedroom.

Unit 16A has a private, high-speed Internet service from Cox Cable, which it shares with Blue Surf 16B.You should have no problem getting access to the Internet or streaming media through our private wifi system. You will find instructions for accessing this complimentary service (as opposed to the Blue Surf complex system) in your check-in letter.

The seasonally heated pool is a few steps from your private patio. The beach is 100 yards away with beach access directly across from the Blue Surf property.

From mid-March through October we offer complimentary daily beach service of two chairs and a beach umbrella that is set up for you on the beach. For your convenience, Blue Surf Unit 16A has a designated off street parking place right outside the front door.

If you are planning a larger family get-together, ask about renting 2, 3 or all 4 of our Blue Surf units simultaneously. For more information and pictures on all four Blue Surf units, see VRBO Listings #126062 (Blue Surf 16B), #168702 (Blue Surf 7), and #332535 (Blue Surf 6).

About Christine Dean

My husband, Bill, and I (Christine) and our two children live in Minnesota. We have been coming to Destin for more than 20 years. We purchased our first Blue Surf unit in 2002. Since that time we have added two more Blue Surf units because we like the complex so much.

Christine Dean purchased this condo in 2002

Why Christine Dean chose Miramar Beach

Blue Surf is an exceptional property: It's small (only 26 townhomes)and well located right across from Miramar Beach Park and close to other area amenities. The units are spacious and every two-bedroom unit has a fantastic, unobstructed view of the Gulf and our well landscaped courtyard. There is also plenty of green space for family games and fun and a lovely pool.

Blue Surf 16A: Steps to the Beach and Pool
average rating of 4.851852 based on 29 reviews

Great set up. Very convenient to walk to the beach and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Loved where we stayed. Kitchen has everything you need. The bed was super comfortable and large. You just open the sliding glass door and there is the pool. The beach is just a short walk past that. Haveing beach chairs and umbrella service was so convenient, no need to worry about hailing around your own. We loved our stay and are already thinking about next year. Only real downside is parking, it's very tight with larger vehicle.

Great way to spend the 4th of July!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The weather was perfect, beaches were clean!

The accommodation were awesome! The condo was very clean and cozy! For a one bedroom it was slightly smaller then we were used to, but we loved the set up and managed just fine!

It was wonderful having a washer & dryer in the room. And the kitchen was stocked perfectly with all of its essentials! We were not in need for anything!

The other plus was the closeness of the beach! Only a few steps across the street! For the most part the drivers were very courteous and stop at pedestrian crossings to let us cross without any problems!!

Having our beach chairs & umbrella reserved for us everyday was big plus for us!!! It was on less item for us to haul for our vacation!! And one less thing to take to the beach!

The swimming pool was well maintained. We liked that the gates were secured so that the smaller children could not open it on their own.

Shopping was nearby for anything you may need! From groceries to the outlets or souvenir shops! And dinning our was within walking distance which we took advantage of! Both Captain Dave & Pompino Joe we excellent restaurants!!

We can’t thank Christine enough for her hospitality for letting us rent her condo and will definitely be keeping our options open for returning next summer!

Thank you for a great vacation 😊?

Owner's Response: We invite any would-be renters to come and see for themselves--"up close and personal"-- how clean and up-to-date Blue Surf 16A is. And the location can't be beat--close to the beach, walkable to a dozen restaurants, and with a beautiful pool and grassy play area right outside your door. Couples and families with small children will love it.
