What Happens in Destin...

Stays in Destin

What to do when you have six girlfriends trying to get away from the stress of their every day lives, get a little sun and have a little fun with their besties? Head to Destin and stay in a fabulous, fully-equipped house at the beach! 

Thanks to the helpful staff at Newman-Dailey Resort Properties we were able to select a beach house that gave us all the amenities we wanted and was a block away from the beach. After some fun planning, before you knew it, we happily arrived at the Blue Starfish in Crystal Beach with our toes in the sand. 

The Blue Starfish is three stories of welcoming, well-decorated rooms, with a fantastic kitchen and dining area. Each of the four main bedrooms has its own balcony and there is a great room with four bunks - good for kids and adults. Although we had a total of six, it would have comfortably slept several more people. The heated pool and spillover spa were much needed for our relaxation, along with the custom-built wet bar on the back deck for all the fruity drinks we made and consumed. One of our favorite perks was the golf cart, which held all of us and was great to cart all of our stuff to the beach. 

We culminated our stay with a special dinner curated by The Enchanting Picnic Co., who set up a magical dinner table theme and brought appetizers and salads from a local shop. Normally the owner can schedule special themed picnics on the beach, but rain was in the forecast that evening, so she easily pivoted and we had dinner at the beach house.

After singing karaoke at the top of our lungs, lots of sun at the beach and the pool, some crazy games during the rainy day and other fun antics, my besties and I returned home well-rested and ready to return to the Blue Starfish again.
