Blue Surf Townhomes
Ranked #37 of 55 Specialty Lodging in Destin
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

I searched & searched for an affordable option other than a hotel since we have 2 little ones that need naps. I finally found this place and found the rates were very comparable to a hotel for much more space. We stayed in Blue Surf 11a. It's a bottom floor directly by the pool. You can see the ocean in the distance from patio. The pool was a nice size but the water was so hot and made for unpleasant swimming. It was nice to walk a few steps out and be at the pool though. The ocean is a quick walk across the street and right across from yummy Pompano Joes. This unit also has a washer and dryer which was a big plus to me with laundry for 4. The nook where the washer and dryer is doubled as our area for our infants pack n play. It gave her an area to sleep that was dark and not in such a noisy area. The furnishings overall were nice. Some updates inside the town home as well as the overall property need to happen. It does have 2 flat screens tvs. It was clean inside and had what we needed. You couldn't put the air below 70 which at times made it stuffy. Check in process was a breeze and staff was nice when booking reservation.

We recently stay at Blue Surf 11B & our first time experience was AWESOME!! The pictures due no justice as this town home has literally everything you need ! We rented thru Newman-Dailey Resort and I'm so lucky we did. Everyday we had 2 chairs and an umbrella at the beach, included in our rental, plus the town home had extra beach toys to take for our use. We also received a free points to use for mini golf and play at The Track. Newman-Dailey also provided 2 movie DVD free rentals per night. Blue Surf is beautiful, they have about 4 grills, pool was clean & warm and the beach is right across the street. Unit 11B was a great stay. They had everything for a pleasant stay, flat screens in the dining areas, 2 rooms, and living room. They had family board games and movies for our use. We will HIGHLY recommend 11B ! Loved our family vacation at Destin, FL ! =)

This is located just across the street from the beach. Every day we simply walked across the street to the beach. The one bedroom unit was very clean and spacious. The kitchen was adequately equipped. This unit had a washer and dryer which was very convenient. The beds were comfortable. The front door did not lock very well so informed management of this. Parking is tight. The rates were very reasonable for the location.

We have been to Destin 5 times now, and always stay at the Blue Surf! We have stayed at multiple condos at Blue Surf, and have never been disappointed. Every condo has everything you need for cooking and grilling. From the balconies, it has a beautiful view of the ocean, and you just walk across the street, and you have your feet in the beautiful white sands! It is family oriented, and a nice quiet place. It is also a reasonable price for the location! For dining, Pompano Joes is a great restaturant option just across the street.

The room was nice, wish they had carpet on deck above so we would not have stuff raining down on us when we sat outside. Had a good time. will come back but will be on second floor. when we arrived there was a dirty towel on counter top in bathroom and toilet was dirty also, but they did come right out to fix.

My family has just returned from a week long vacation at the Blue Surf. It was our first true 'family' vacation with our two young children, ages 2 and 3. The Blue Surf exceeded our expectations and provided the perfect environment for our young family.

In planning this vacation, we were searching for a bit of privacy, away from the generic Spring Break atmosphere. B/c it is located far to the east of larger, highrise condos and hotels, we managed to avoid the hustle and bustle! A short walk across the street lands you on beautiful white beaches--again, populated more by families and older couples. On that same walk you will find Pompano Joe's, a local restaurant with a laidback atmosphere and great seafood. Back at Blue Surf, there is a quaint pool that is well maintained. My children enjoyed playing on the 4 steps that stretch the entire width of the pool--perfect for beginning swimmer's to enjoy. The grounds are well maintained with flowers and palm trees making a pretty backdrop from one of the two balconies in the units.

We stayed in unit 11B. It was very clean and welcoming. It had a direct view of the gulf and pool from each balcony. The master bedroom/bath are small, but the king size bed is beyond comfortable! The upstairs bedroom is larger, with both a queen and twin bed. Our boys loved sharing this room! Downstairs in the kitchen, you will find it fully stocked with any and every dish/pot/pan/utensil/appliance you could possibly ever need--I've never vacationed in a rental that had so much on hand! A nice bonus is the washer/dryer. After a week of vacationing, I was able to return home with clean laundry as opposed to the mounds that generally accumulate!

As a side note, the management company we used provided a 'family fun pack' with discounts and tickets, including a free round of golf for EACH DAY, free movie rentals, tickets to the local amusement park and tickets for a dolphin cruise. With a young family and a husband that golfs, this was a huge bonus! I think I've more than conveyed our satisfaction with the Blue Surf! We are already looking forward to returning in the future!

Our family has been staying at Blue Surf for the past 10 years. One of the best features are the magnificient unobstructed views of the gulf from EVERY condo. We have stayed in many different units, and have never been disappointed. This is one of the best kept secrets in Destin!
