Please note- We have very strict Spring Break policies and do not rent to anyone under the age of 25. We require there to be one adult over 25 for every two people under 25. We only take family vacations. No exceptions!
Our roomy two-story, two bedroom townhouse is casually decorated with bright, coastal charm.
Relish in the fact that by staying at Blue Surf 18, you don't have to hassle with any elevators when loading & unloading, walking over to the beach with all your gear, or heading out for the night. And there is no huge parking lot to search for a spot in when you've been out all day. Your two designated parking spaces are right outside the door.
Blue Surf Townhomes are a low-rise community set up in a horseshoe layout with all of the properties (26 units) overlooking the beautifully landscaped lawn, pool, and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The pool is only a few short steps away from the back patio and offers plenty of seating for a lazy Florida day. And the beach is a mere 90 second stroll past that.
This home features a great floor plan with the master bedroom and full bathroom upstairs alongside the living room with sleeper sofa, sectional, and coffee bar. After a restful night's sleep in the comfy queen bed, grab your coffee and enjoy the sights and sounds from the second story balcony. You won't be able to resist taking your turn in our swinging chair and may want to stay for a midday nap.
The kitchen, another full bathroom, and guest bedroom are downstairs.
Our kitchen has an updated granite countertop over a cheerful red bar and all the cooking utensils you'll need including seafood tools & a 24 qt stock pot and basket for steaming fresh seafood right at home. On the other hand, you may just decide to flip some burgers in the yard on one of the outdoor grills.
Step right outside the guest room's sliding glass door and polish off your lunch or dinner at the patio table. The indoor dining area, with seating for 7, showcases photos of some of the local areas, attractions, and restaurants - one of which is sitting directly across Scenic Hwy 98 -Pompano Joe's Seafood House.
Spend the evening walking the beach moon gazing and sand crab hunting before you snuggle up on the big sectional in the living room to catch up on some reading or binge watching.
Whatever activities you choose, you can't go wrong in Destin, Florida. And we hope you'll choose to experience your vacation and stay with us at Blue Surf 18!
