Beautiful newly renovated 1 bedroom 1 bathroom Destin Florida beach condo vacation rental by owner. Budget friendly so that you can enjoy more on your family vacation. All of the comforts of home available to you in your home away from home.
Let's face it, family vacation rentals in Destin Florida are not cheap. During peak summer rental seasons, you can expect to pay upwards of $2000 per week for a one bedroom condo that is directly on the beach. Here at "Blu By You" we strive to offer affordable options for small families, small groups and couples who want to enjoy all that Destin has to offer without breaking the bank. "Blu By You" is across the street from the beach, approximately 1/4 mile walk. There is a highway that runs along Destin called highway 98 and we are located across the street. There are sidewalks on either side of 98 and Public Beach access.
"Blu By You" is a clean, updated, well appointed, spacious alternative to a hotel room. With one queen size bed in the bedroom and a queen size sleeper sofa in the living area, it can sleep 4-5 comfortably. Our little vacation space is full of value. Complete with a fully stocked kitchen, laundry facilities, room to stretch out in multiple living areas with adequate seating, not just a bed. With two tv viewing areas, the kids can enjoy their evening tv downtime while the adults sit out on the back patio by the lake and unwind, or unwind in bed with a tv of their own. This makes it the perfect Destin vacation deal!
"Blu By You" is a budget friendly Destin Beach Vacation Condo Rental. It is a one bedroom, one bathroom first floor unit that sits on the lake. You are steps away from water, no matter where you turn! From the beautiful powder soft sand beaches that Destin is known for, the resorts stocked fishing and turtle pond, or one of the 3 swimming pools available to all guests, you are sure to have plenty of water fun on your next family vacation.
"Blu By You" is in the heart of Destin, it is close to many of Destin's popular attractions and within walking distance if you choose, however, most people drive to many of Destin's family attractions.

Henderson Beach State Park is 1 mile away and for $6 per car your family can enjoy 6000 feet of nearly deserted sugary white sand and emerald green waters with picnic pavillions, air conditioned bathrooms,outdoor showers, playgrounds, abundant parking and hiking trails. This is Destin's best kept secret. Tucked away between hotel and condo high rises and beach chair and umbrella rainbows, is a pristine place along one of the most picturesque stretches of Florida’s Panhandle coastline. Get a glimpse of what Destin and the Gulf shores looked like before development. Pack a picnic lunch, a good book, and enjoy the most peaceful day you and your family will have in Destin. My first ever view of the Spectacular Destin Beaches was from the boardwalk of this hidden gem. I have been in love ever since. The park is open 365 days per year from 8:00 am to sundown. Their phone number is (phone number hidden).
Guests will have access to the entire condo. Beach chairs, cooler, beach umbrella, and beach cart. The beach cart is great for hauling all of your beach gear to and from the condo. Either push it to the beach or it folds up and you can put it in the trunk of your car if you chose to drive to a beach.
Patio chairs and table on patio and charcoal grill outside of condo.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction with Guests will be minimal, just checking in at the beginning and ending of your stay to verify that everything was satisfactory. We provide starter paper products to get you through the first day or so, however, for stays of 2 days or more you will want to bring or buy your own toilet tissue or paper towels. Also, for sanitary purposes, and because we manage our property from a distance we do have to charge a cleaning fee to all guests regardless of how short your stay. Even if you only stay one night, we do have to launder the sheets and towels used and we pay a service to do so in our absence, so a cleaning fee must be charged.
Please call US at anytime during your stay if something is not satisfactory with your stay or our home.
Blu By You is in the heart of Destin. It is close to many popular restaurants and attractions. It is nice to sit out on our patio along the lake in the evening after dinner and relax looking at the stars reminicing about the day or planning tomorrow.
You can walk from our unit and visit many of the area attractions, but most people do chose to drive since Destin is not really a Jersey shore boardwalk type of destination.
To be honest, you will be selling yourself short and limiting yourself if you do not get out and drive. There are so many things to see and do within 15 miles east and west along the coast of Destin! Get out and take a day trip to Navarre Beach or visit Grayton State Park or Top Sail State Park. Pensacola and Panama Beach are both an hours drive away.
Smoking permitted outside only.
No pets please. We are animal lovers we have 1 dog and 3 cats, but not everyone is so we have decided that to appeal to all customers, we can not accomodate fur babies. We market our home as Pet Free, so please be considerate of people who are not animal lovers or who have severe alergies and respect our no pet policy.
Please treat our home with respect. Please place dirty and wet towels in bathtub on checkout day and load and start dishwasher. This just helps the cleaning staff out, so that they do not have to wait for the dishes to clean and dry or to come back to the condo to put the clean dishes away.
We had a lovely experience at the condo, the view from the back door was beautiful and the kitchen was both handy and well color-coordinated. It was centrally located for anything we needed to get to, and Henderson Beach was amazing. Thanks for opening your condo to us!
Lori's condo was adorable and just as described. The decor was cute, it was nice to be able to cook our meals and the kitchen had anything we might need. We felt right at home and the location was awesome. We visited the recommneded locations and had so much fun! The beach was close and beautiful, just as Lori told us it would be! Destin was a perfect vacation spot and the condo felt way more comfortable than a crowded hotel! Lori was so helpful and accommodating, such a great experience!
The condo was as represented in the posting, everything was provided that was needed for our stay in Destin. The unit was clean and our arrival and departure went smoothly. The two things I would point out for any prospective renter, first the unit above us was noisy particularly during times in the middle of the night. The second item, while the unit is nice, the development is a bit run down, be prepared for this on arrival, don't prejudge before you move into the unit.
The condo was just as described...newly renovated inside, clean, and very inviting. Loved the blue beach decor. As another review indicated do not be deceived by the outside as inside the condo had everything you would need. Traveling with a 2 year old, it was much better to stay in a condo with a full kitchen instead of a hotel room and we did not need to be right on the beach. Centrally located in Destin. We were very pleased. Lori was extremely responsive and helpful leading up to our stay and during.
Great stay condo is very nice and in a convenient area. Lori responds very quickly to any questions or concerns.
Lori was a great, responsive host. The location was great - easy access to beaches and restaurants. We liked the coordinated blue decorating, with some beach elements without being over-the-top beachy. We'd stay at Lori's place again next time we're in the area.
The place was immaculate, I didn't meet Lori face to face, but she left great details about the place. My wife and I had a great time there. The place had everything we needed and was very well put together. I would definitely stay here again and let my friends know about this place as well.
We first visited Destin Florida on a whim. We camped at Henderson Beach State Park for a week and fell in love. We continued this family tradition for 3 years before we realized how much it cost in gas to drive our RV. We could have easily stayed in a condo like our rental for the same cost! So we started the journey of finding a vacation home that we could use ourselves a few weeks per year, and share with others.
My first ever view of Destin beaches was from the shores of Henderson Beach State Park. You can camp at the park or visit it for the day and park in their beach access parking lot. So many people do not even know that the park is there, it is hidden amongst condo high rises and restaurants. During the peak summer months when Destin vacationer's are at their highest, you will find it difficult to get a good parking space at any of the public beach access parking lots. At Henderson Beach, the parking lot is HUGE and there are plenty of parking spots available. You can park only feet away from the small boardwalk down to the powder white sand. It is handicap accessable and there are special wheel chairs that can be reserved through the park for easier beach access. The park has picnic pavilions and air conditioned restrooms. They also have convenient outdoor showers to remove any sand or salt water on yourself or your items before getting into your car. All of these ammenities make it worth the $6.00 that you pay PER CAR for use all day from sun up until sundown. You can even leave the park and return later in the day.
