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 Niceville

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. The Bluewater Bay community offers shopping, a swimming pool, tennis courts, golf course, restaurants and a marina.

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!

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

Winter at Devine Destination

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Ralph and Karen Tomasovic, are retired professional home builders. Devine Destination is extremely well equipped, kept in good working condition, spotless and comfortable. Dining, beaches, shopping, etc. are close by. Our primary activities are walking and biking. There is no better place for those activities than Bluewater Bay; miles of shady residential roadways winding past beautiful large homes on wooded waterfront acreage. A perfect place to relax and stay healthy.

Karen and Ralph actually met us at the condo when we arrived. The condo was decorated for Thanksgiving and we even had fresh flowers. What a nice touch! Condo was very comfortable and clean. Everything we needed was provided. Definitely recommend.
