The Blue Marlin is a beautiful, spacious 3000 sq. ft. beach home that's only 1.5 blocks from the most beautiful white sugar sand beaches in the world- just a short walk or quick golf cart trip down & you're there!! You have an open layout, spacious rooms, multiple lounge areas for relaxing, a full kitchen, pool & deck area, laundry, and plenty of parking. We've just recently converted our pool to SALTWATER, so relaxing in the pool means soft skin afterwards versus feeling dry from chlorine! The memories to be made at The Blue Marlin are truly endless!

We do have a great private pool in our gated backyard for guest use! We've recently converted our pool to SALTWATER, so no harsh chemicals to deal with! We do not close our pool at any point in the year. In the cooler months we do offer the option for pool heating at an additional charge. This price will vary based on the length of your stay so we encourage all guests to inquire at the time of booking for this amenity!
Please note that we do not include the golf cart in your booking, but we can rent it on your behalf at a great discounted rate from a local, reputable rental company--you won't find this deal anywhere else! Please let us know upon booking if you'd like us to reserve it for you, as quantity can be limited! Any guests that do opt for the golf cart rental are required to sign the waiver associated with driving it.
You are in the heart of Crystal Beach, and directly across from the Destin Commons with plenty of shopping, entertainment, and restaurants. The Silver Sands Outlets are within a few minutes drive East with more shopping, restaurants, and a play area for kids. There are plenty of public beach accesses close by within walking/golf cart distance. We love taking the golf cart to pretty much anywhere around this area. During busy times it can be easier to take an Uber, Lyft, or taxi to avoid dealing with traffic and parking. The town is fairly easy to navigate, as most everything to do is directly off the main road through in either direction!
A few things to keep in mind:
-We are a professional management company, always available to take phone calls with any and all questions or concerns (other than the middle of the night, when we are all asleep, unless it's an emergency!) Please do NOT send a text at any time! We happily respond to all messages directly through your booking platform app. If you’re placing a phone call, please know the location you’re staying, and the logistics of your trip so we can easily access it and provide efficient service to you!
-All linens are provided for any length of stay, with a washer and dryer in the unit if needed for longer trips. Do note that we supply a small courtesy amount of toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, dishwasher/dish soap, laundry detergent, and hand soap that's typically enough for the first 24 hours of your stay. For larger groups or longer trips it is recommended that you bring additional supplies as seen fit for your group size/length of stay.
-Please plan your trip accordingly as we are located in Central Standard Time. Check in time is 4pm, and checkout time is 9am. As cleaning and maintenance time needed cannot be predicted, we are not able to schedule early check ins or late check outs unless previously discussed. This option is not always available but we do our best to accommodate is we can!
-We require Saturday to Saturday bookings ONLY during holidays, spring break, and summer months (Memorial Day to Labor Day). We do not honor instant bookings for any trips booked outside of these guidelines, and encourage guests to ask if they have alternative check in/out dates they would like to request.
-Golf cart and/or is not included in your stay, please inquire for pricing as it varies based on season/length of trip.
-Spring break/student groups (under age 25) must notify us BEFORE booking as additional requirements apply. All student guests must sign student agreement & bring $100 cash per person at time of check in for refundable security deposit. Student groups are not permitted to rent the golf cart at any time.
-We must be notified of a pet joining your trip before arrival. We have a 2 pet maximum permitted (unless otherwise approved) & our $200 pet fee must be paid prior to check in. Pets must be house trained, not permitted on furniture or in the pool, and crated when left unattended. You are expected to clean up after your pet, or a $50 fee will be assessed. Emotional Support Animals are subject to pet fee, ADA Registered Service Animals are the only animals exempt from this at any time. Impersonating an ADA Service animal is a crime in our state so we appreciate honesty in this matter.
-There is only parking to accommodate up to 8 vehicles, and street parking/blocking sidewalk/right-of-way may result in citation from the City of Destin to be paid by guest in violation. Boat/RV/Trailer parking is permitted at our home.
