Description

This magnificent vacation residence in fashionable Crystal Shores of Destin has recently received a dazzling and massive remodel in 2023 making the home more updated and welcome. All six bedrooms have been updated, all bathrooms remodeled, and a new open concept state of the art kitchen now faces the family area. This vacation home offers all new Samsung Smart TV's throughout and includes a converted 8'x25' saltwater pool. The extensive embellishments also include new landscaping, upscale furnishings, fresh paint, and a widened brick paved driveway that easily accommodates six permitted vehicles for large family beach reunions.

Blue Water Escape readily defines a chic, comfortable casual coastal style and is ready to host up to 16 fortunate guests graciously. The highly hospitable home has a premier position situated directly across the street from the glorious gulf. Two sets of expansive upper level covered balconies span across the entire width to take full advantage of this sought after locale. They provide lovely tropical views of the glittering jewel toned waters with direct balcony access from a Primary Suite and Guest Bedroom on the top level as well as the open living area on the second floor.

A columned open veranda on the first floor faces the sparkling swimming pool, which includes multiple seating ensembles with tables for drinks and dining poolside. A white picket fence beside it overlooks a lush green lawn, clusters of towering palms, and indigenous plants that showcase a terrific tropical setting. A large lagoon shaped community pool and the sugary white sand beach are just a short stroll away. Guest quarters on the private poolside level include wonderfully appointed bedrooms with decorative art and direct access to the pool patio. A full bath serves both bedrooms and provides a convenient powder room near the pool.

The open living area on the second floor features a wraparound couch that faces a large TV mounted on a decorative wall with a gleaming white pebble patterned surface. A thick honey-toned hardwood topped table near the open kitchen has six tropically inspired raised straw woven side chairs flanked by square straw stools at each end. A triple set of simple beaded chandeliers, large seahorse wall sculptures, paintings of wild herons, and tropical silk plants provide an enchanting coastal ambiance. The kitchen has plenty of creamy white custom cabinetry for treats and new brushed stainless steel appliances to create fun family feasts. A charming Guest Bedroom in this level has warm cottage styled furnishings that include a king-sized bed and access to a full hall bath.

The elegant Primary Bedroom Suite, a beautiful Guest Bedroom and a twin bunk room on the top level each have direct access to the furnished balcony to enjoy the gorgeous gulf views. The Primary Bedroom and one Guest Bedroom have king-sized beds. The Primary Suite includes a private luxury bath while a full hall bath serves the other two bedrooms.

Perfect for Multi Family Vacation
This is our 2nd year to stay at this house. We love the location. The house is gorgeous and neighborhood is quiet. This visit we had a lot of struggles with hot water. We didn’t have that problem last year and we had the same 20 people in the house last year. The property manager came out twice which was appreciated.

Family Beach Reunion
I cannot say enough great things about Blue Water Escape. The entire experience was top notch from start to finish and the location was perfect for our family’s beach getaway! Communication with the property management was so easy and they made the experience seamless. I would highly recommend this property for large groups!

Our family vacation
The house was nice. Everything was neat and clean. Pool was nice and the children enjoyed it. Parking was perfect for the amount of cars we had. The location of the house was perfect. Everything was near and didn't have to travel so far. Beach was right across the street. Heads up, the elevator doesn't work. But our overall experience was great.

Are 2 small dogs ok?
Carrie R - Posted: 05/21/2023

Answer:

We love our dogs here at Ocean Reef, however - Blue Water Escape is not a pet-friendly property.  If you are unable to board your pup, you may want to consider one of these Pet Friendly Rentals.

Madisyn W - Posted: 12/10/2023
