THE SPACE
Your home away from home! We've tried to make your stay at Blue Surf #18 as comfy for you as being in your own space with lots of throw blankets, Rokus for streaming TV, pillows, and lots of toys and games! Our roomy two-story, two bedroom townhouse is casually decorated with bright, coastal charm. You'll feel right at home but be just a two-minute walk to the beach!


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 with an "Old Florida" feel, set up in a horseshoe layout with all of the properties (34 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 across Scenic Gulf Drive.

This home features a great floor plan with the master bedroom and full bathroom upstairs alongside the living room with a queen sleeper sofa and a full-sized futon convertible couch. 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, crock pot, & 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. If A/C is more your style, the indoor dining area, with seating for 9, 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 while moon gazing and sand crab hunting before you snuggle up 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!

FOR THE KIDS
Having three girls of our own, we know the struggle of vacationing with kids. After packing all the stuff and traveling with the pack and play, stroller, toys, and every other little thing that little people need and want, you'll be ready for a vacation from your vacation! We've tried to make your trip less stressful by offering some of those items for you to use while you stay with us at Blue Surf #18! Just remember that all other small children will want to play with the toys and parents will want to use the equipment, so please be respectful, take care of items, and leave them in the unit. There should be toy cleaning spray in the closet of the downstairs bedroom or upstairs living room cabinet.
  • Pack & play (NO sheet - housekeeping does not provide linens for the pack and play)
  • Jogging stroller
  • Baby gate
  • Bumbo seat w/tray
  • Kids movies
  • Games & puzzles
  • Books
  • Toys (dolls, action figures, cars, baby toys, etc)
Again, feel free to enjoy the toys, movies, etc., but please put them away before you check out.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

That sugary, white, sandy beach and emerald green water you came for is less than a 2 minute walk from your back patio! Just roll the beach cart over the road and down the ramp. There's public restroom access just to the east and a beachside cafe/bar at Pompano Joe's, so you won't even need to take the short stroll back home for food and bathroom breaks, if you don't wanna leave the beach!

The low-rise (34 unit) Blue Surf Community shares a pool in the middle of our lush, green lawn with tables and lounge chairs for relaxing.

This property sits adjacent to Scenic Gulf Drive which is a quaint two-lane road that runs for a few miles along the Gulf passing beaches, neighborhoods, resorts, restaurants, and townhouse communities like ours. There's a recreation trail along the road and a bike/scooter rental shop within walking distance. Depending on how far you want to go, there are also a few restaurants, a rolled ice cream shop, winery, coffee shop, plus a number of souvenir stores which can be reached on foot. You could also rent a golf cart for a day or week! You'll have two designated parking spaces available for use with this rental.

Pompano Joe's Seafood Restaurant is directly across the street from the Blue Surf, and it is delicious! They even have a beach bar you can walk up to from your spot on the sand to get a snack & drink and a volleyball net set up on the beach for playing. Take a ride on a waverunner or fly high on a parasail adventure right from the beach behind Pompano Joe's. If you're a guest of Blue Surf 18, you'll receive a promo code for a discount at either Destin Waverunner Rental, Beach Parasail Destin, or their new snorkeling tour out to the reef!

If you like shopping, then you'll love the Silver Sands Premium Outlets and Destin Commons Shopping Center. Both are only a very short car ride from our townhouse. 

A couple of miles east of us in Sandestin, you'll find The Village at Baytowne Wharf. It has something for everyone in the family! There are loads of appetizing restaurants, ice cream shoppes, retail shopping, and a whole bunch of fun activities like zip lining, a 4-story high ropes course (and a smaller one for younger kids), a carousel, and a dueling piano bar. Visit their website at https://www.baytownewharf.com/ for a list of free daily events! The Baytowne Wharf sits on the Choctawhatchee Bay which boasts a marina and fishing pier where you'll definitely want to watch at least one sunset.

And of course, there are lots of golf courses throughout the area. Take your pick, if you like to golf, and set up a tee time!
