Absolute best place to stay    Apr 12, 2019

review star

My family was displaced from Hurricane Micheal and when we found this home the owners were amazing. This house has everything you need and the pool is awesome. The beautiful white sand beaches are only minutes away with a nice walking path. Very kid friendly area. The home is in a perfect location and the owners will do everything they can to ensure you have a great vacation. We will definetly be back, I highly recommend this rental over any other.


Perfect House and Location

Perfect house and location    Mar 30, 2019

review star

We have vacationed in Destin for over 8 years with another family. We have stayed in several houses and this was the best one. The kitchen had everything you could need, even a crockpot! The location is perfect. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the kids enjoyed visiting Camilles cafe for smoothies. The mall being close for rain days was also a plus. The outside was great, it was quiet at night. The owner was very kind and responsive. We will be staying again next year!

We loved our "home away from home" for the week. The owner and the management company responded immediately to our wants and needs. WE would definitely stay there again!

Adorable and well-maintained beach house.    Mar 10, 2019

review star

We arrived to see an adorable home, situated just around the corner from the beach. The little community that the home is a part of is very neat and quiet as well. We did not come across one issue during our stay and the owners were very responsive to any questions. I can’t think of one think that you’d need to bring with you, other than food and clothes. Walmart is also very close, maybe a 3 minutes drive, which is very convenient as well. We hope to stay here again in the future!

Amazing Owners    Oct 07, 2018

review star

We visited the week of Hurricane Michael (and Red Tide), although it was a bummer that we decided to evacuate super early the owners were excellent about staying in contact with us. They were so kind and helpful during the whole process. The house is in excellent condition and provides everything that you need to make a perfect vacation. The house is in very close walking distance to the beach and has the perfect pool out back. It has all of the outdoor patio furniture that you could need. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this property, we will definitely be back.

Went down for a birthday party of 9. Had tons of space and loved the pool with the grilling area. Owners were so gracious and responsive. Will definitely rent again. Oh and thanks for the goodie bag.

Fantastic Family friendly home    Jul 28, 2018

review star

The house is newly updated with newer washer/dryer and kitchen appliances, very cute. Rooms are good size and lots of room to spread out. Pool and outdoor cooking space are fantastic. Short walk to beach. The owners have everything there that a family needs for the beach and pool including many rafts and boogie boards, beach toys and even wagons to get things back and forth. Safety rails for the beds, highchair and pack-n-play are all there. The house is walking distance to many places for the older kids as well so there was always something for everyone to do. Would definitely rent again.

We Loved It!    May 26, 2018

review star

This home was a perfect fit for our large family! The teens stayed in the pool house master room - and the littles loved the bunk room upstairs. All three adult couples had their own rooms for privacy. But the best part was the outside - the pool was used every day, usually 3-4 times a day on breaks from the beach. And the patio area with the shaded cover and amazing grill set up was ideal for large family meals and quiet glasses of wine at night. You can tell this is a home that is owned by a family - as they thought of all the extras you will need - a beach wagon to get your stuff to the beach, bed rails for the bunk room for my youngest to use, labeled drawers in the kitchen and games/books for the rainy days, even a dog crate for our pup. This was our first time not staying directly on the beach in Destin - and with the pool and the super easy, very short stroll to the beach - we really did not miss it

We had an amazing time! DejaBlu suited our needs perfectly! Very comfortable beds and cozy atmosphere. The outdoor grill and pool were perfect and used a lot. We will definitely stay again someday! Also, not a far walk to the beach at all...very convenient access too.

Wonderful Vacation!    Mar 31, 2018

My family and I loved staying here. The property was beautiful. Only 2 blocks from the beach and very close to all restaurants and attractions. The property owner was very prompt in getting back with answers to all my questions. He was helpful and very nice. I have brought my family to Destin every year for family vacations and this is by far our favorite place to stay. I would recommend this rental to every one and I look forward to spending our vacations here for years to come.

Great quiet location    Mar 24, 2018

review star

Overall great stay for spring break at Deja Blue for 4 adults and 2 toddlers. Plenty of room and house kept in good condition. Location is perfect as it is a couple blocks off the beach so it is quiet at night. Also Whole Foods and Publix less than a mile away. Owner’s communication before, during and after trip was prompt. We would rent this house again and there’s enough room we could bring another couple and their kids. Overall would recommend.

Best beach vacation!!!    Mar 10, 2018

This beach home was beautiful in the perfect location. Close enough to the gorgeous sugar white sand beach that you could walk there. Beach items were supplied for us to use to make our time on the beach even better. Owners of the home were very easy to work with and extremely nice. We will definitely stay at this home again!!

We really loved our stay at Deja Blue! It's in a beautiful, safe and quiet neighborhood, within a 3-5 minute walk to the beach; the kids loved the pool, the house was very clean and beautiful, with a great roof top balcony to sit and relax and take in the sights. The owners were super accommodating and made sure we had a great stay at the house. We love Destin and will hopefully be back soon, and stay here again.

This is beautiful home in an ideal community. Quiet, well-kept, safe neighborhood, and the house is comfortable and spacious. The owners were a dream to deal with- polite, accommodating, and quick to respond. Even with Hurricane Nate, we wouldn’t have changed a thing. Highly recommend, and hope to return again someday!

One of our best family vacations ever. Home is well furnished and comfortable. The location is great. Two walking blocks to the water (where you can walk out waist to chest deep and still see the bottom!). Close to grocery stores (don't go on Saturdays!), shopping and all types of restaurants. The owners were very good about answering questions. Be sure to rent a pontoon boat so you can really appreciate the area.

If you are looking for the perfect vacation home for your family vacation, THIS IS IT! This home has everything you will need. The pool and outdoor kitchen is the best.

This rental saved the day!    Apr 01, 2017

review star

3 days before our family from three different states were heading for a home in Destin they cancelled on us due to a water leak. I had 3 days during spring break to find another house that met our needs. The owners of Deja Blue were a Godsend. They made it possible to rent the home on short notice and communicated with me via phone, e-mail and text to make sure our stay was just perfect. We loved the house and would definitely rent it again. So quiet and close to the ocean with everything we needed at our fingertips. You won't regret this rental.
