Rated Excellent on FlipKey

5.0 average rating
based on 21 reviews


Blue Heaven is an absolute dream dressed in the loveliest shades of blue! This custom-built vacation home will have you walking in the clouds the moment you step into the two-story tall entry way. The open floor plan flows flawlessly from the gourmet kitchen boasting granite counters, stainless-steel appliances accented by a glass tile backsplash to a dining room that seats 20. All of this along with a designer-furnished living room overlook the fenced-in backyard also known as your own personal paradise complete with a pool, a spill-over spa, a gazebo housing a grill and a kitchenette, an outdoor pool table, outdoor TV, sand volleyball court plus tropical foliage to complete the effect.

Arched entryways lead to several en suite bedrooms on the first level each with luxury linens and custom window treatments tailored around beach themed décor. Up the lovely traditional staircase and beyond the Juliette balcony sit three more bedrooms that shine with their own particular upscale coastal ornamentation and each open up to one of two balconies that span the width of Blue Heaven. 

This Destin vacation rental has been painstakingly planned so that its fortunate guests can enjoy every moment in this heavenly place. The perks of Blue Heaven include stone and wood floors throughout, ten foot ceilings, a full laundry room, plenty of parking and an excellent location. Its proximity to the beach combined with a complimentary golf cart are part of what make this Destin beach home so spectacular.

If the allure of this home and the call of the beach beyond aren’t enough to complete this taste of heaven, its close enough to a long list of shoppers’ paradises including Silver Sands Premium Outlets, golfers’ edens and diners’ delights to please even the pickiest of vacationers.

Home is on beach side of highway on a private drive with no major roads to cross to get to beach access.  The private beach access is approximately 150 yards from home and the owner provides a golf cart for your convenience.   

Golf Cart provided - 6 person electric golf cart - must have valid driver license & can not be driven on sidewalks or main highway.

The pool has a Spill-Over Spa. This is not a Hot Tub and cannot be heated independent of the pool. Pool may be heated for an additional fee upon request in season.

Doing 40 Like a Boss

  5 of 5 stars

Pros: We rented this rental with a total of 14 adults for a 40th birthday celebration vacation. Everyone had their own room and bathroom. Space in the open kitchen and living/dining room area was great for socializing. The pool was decent size and sun was on the pool for the first half of the day, so we often started at the pool and finished at the beach. The outdoor setup with the pool, pool table, chairs and tv were fantastic for people who wanted a break from the sun but still wanted to be out with everyone. The golf cart was a great feature. The walk to the beach was quick and down a private road that was not often traveled by vehicles. There was golf cart parking right down by the beach. The beach was absolutely fabulous. Long stretch of beach with soft, white sand (no shells). It was clean and well-kept. The house was close to the outlet mall and 15 minutes from Destin. The Dollar General was very close (within walking distance if necessary) and had almost everything we needed on hand. There also is a Walmart 5 minutes away. We found Winn Dixie to be quite expensive, but that is also an option nearby. Newman-Dailey staff was very helpful and courteous. Cons: Not enough pool furniture for a house that can accommodate large groups like ours. There are two laydown chairs and two sitting chair by the pool. There are four tall chairs under the canopy (like bar seats). The furniture is sturdy and nice but they need more. In the storage, there was close to nothing left behind for the beach, such as a chair or floaties. We had to buy a lot of this, though it is readily available. There is cornhole, but no bags. There is a grill but no grilling utensils (this we really were unhappy about). The 'sand' volleyball court has no sand, just grass/weeds and is armpit high. Note, there is a sand court on the beach a ways down that can be used. The kitchen was light on pots and pans that are necessary for a group this big. There IS a slow cooker, but really just two frying pans. They could use some more supplies. We had to buy salt and pepper. Absolutely nothing was left in the drawers or cabinets, so plan to bring seasonings, etc. Lastly, the house is not well sound-proof, so late nights and early mornings, plan to hear those that are up and talking/cooking in the main area. We would highly recommend this place to others coming in a large group. We would rent again here.

Thank you for taking time to leave your review and we were happy to hear that overall you and your friends were well served by Blue Heaven. We appreciate your comments about kitchen inventory as exact inventory is hard to keep up with during a back to back rental season. Please note that for sanitary reasons we NEVER leave anything that can be consumed in a rental property....and that includes salt and pepper. The owner has ordered additional patio furniture so hopefully that should not be an issue for future guests. We are also doing an inventory of toys and games to make sure guests have everything they need to enjoy the house even more!

We stayed at Jewel in the Sand and had a wonderful time. A few minor issues with the house upon arrival. I felt the items should have been a part of your maintenance check list and corrections made prior to our arrival. The bathroom outlet and fan in shower (secondary bedroom next to master) never worked. Even after election came and allegedly fixed it. You can look back at the record and see items that I called in on Sunday morning. Hugh Gilliam

My family and I stayed in Blue Haven the stay was wonderful, and had lots of activities to do, my family was very excited,anything that was needed Newman Dailey made sure it was taken care of in no time. This a place that I would definitely refer to someone else to visit on vacation.

Family Escape

  4 of 5 stars

We visited Blue Heaven in July and experienced a wonderful stay. The home was clean and ready as promised. Very comfortable bedrooms and the numerous bathrooms are great for a large group. Enjoyed the pool and golf cart. Short trip to beach. Newman-Dailey were very responsive to any questions or requests we had during our stay. Would definitely visit this home again and recommend it to other families. Super nice and spacious. Nice to have televisions in all the bedrooms.

Blue Heaven was heaven

  5 of 5 stars

This house was amazing and a pleasure to not have the usual 3 stories. Three of our family of 12 were over 70 and it was nice to be able to get out and about without a flight of stairs. The porch could use some furniture. Backyard furniture was nice but tall stools and Adirondack chairs too heavy to move and infested with wasps. Nonetheless, we had a wonderful time and the house itself was beautiful: tastefully coastal - another pleasure from the sometimes garishly decorated beach houses. Everything worked and it was impeccably clean upon arrival. Credit must be given to Newman Dailey who oversees the condition of their properties. A call about the wasps resulted in immediate response. We have rented houses along the Gulf for the past 7 years with varying results. Our family numbers 15 so finding space to suit can be difficult. If we return to Destin (a two day drive from Dallas) we will certainly want Blue Heaven or another suitable Newman Dailey property. Thanks for a great week!

This house was perfect for 7 adults and 4 kids. From the large pool to the pool table to the outdoor kitchen with large tv to the volleyball net. Everyone had enough space to do what they wanted when they wanted. It was great!!

I would like to take this opportunity to let you know how much my family enjoyed our stay at the BLUE HEAVEN! This trip was for our daughter's graduation and so happened to fall on my birthday on arrival. Upon my arrival to the Blue Heaven, there was a beautiful Birthday card on the counter for me along with a extremely nice bottle of champagne from Newman-Dailey Resort Properties. My family of course fell in love with the complete layout of the home. There is a pool, grill, volleyball and the beach is walking distance from the home. WHAT MORE COULD WE ASK FOR!!!! The best was our Customer Relations representative, Ryan Coletta. He was simply great. I know we called Mr. Coletta a hundred times but he answered all of our questions and went above and beyond in helping us with this trip. In all honesty, I've always used Resort Quest but because of the outstanding customer services received by Ryan Coletta and the entire staff at Newman-Dailey, my family has chosen to move all our vacation business to the best in Destin, FL, NEWMAN-DAILEY Resort Properties. My phone has been ringing off the hook with family members wanting to make reservations to return next year! Thanks again, for help making wonderful memories for my family. Sincerely, MiChelle Knight

Wonderful vacation. Lovely surroundings and perfect weather. A few small issues which were handled with courtesy and professionalism. All staff respectful and helpful. Highly recommend any Newman-Daily property

Great family celebration

  5 of 5 stars

We had a great family celebration. Actually a triple celebration, 60th anniversary, a birthday and Baptism. Thank you for the lovey basket of goodies to help us celebrate. Blue Heaven is a perfect home for a family gathering. The weather was perfect. Many thanks to all the staff for their courtesy and help with everything having to do with our stay. Rest assured when we have another family function at the beach we will contact Newman-Dailey.

Our stay the week of July 16th was most enjoyable. The beach was beautiful and water clear. The house certainly filled our needs. We pool and grill area was used quite a bit. When we felt the pool filter was not working properly, I called Newman at 4:45 PM. The pool attendant arrived the first thing in the morning, changed the sand, and everything was fine. Even though you can walk to the beach, the golf cart is very useful for transporting people and beach equipment. I believe everyone in our family enjoyed their stay at Blue Heaven.

Everything we needed

  5 of 5 stars

We stayed at Blue Heaven the last week in July. We had 12 adults and 5 children that went on a trip to celebrate my grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary! We had the best time. There was enough room for everyone and enough room for the kids to run around. The golf cart was a great amenity since we had so many people, the house is not a bad walk to the beach but the golf cart comes in real handy! The private pool was very beneficial especially for the kids. We had an issue with the pool pump later in the week but we called Newman Dailey and they were very prompt about getting people out to look at it. Unfortunately the pump was not fixed that day so we lost 2 days worth of not having a pool for the family to use but Newman Dailey has contacted us and has made things right. The service was very helpful the whole time we were there and they were very attentive to our issues that came up during our stay. The outdoor kitchen/grill area was perfect for the men in my family who love to grill. The kitchen is spacious and allows for multiple people to be in there at one time. We want to Thank Newman Dailey for everything they did and for providing a wonderful home for us to celebrate in with our family! As one of the other reviews states, "It was a great house, great location and we highly recommend especially if you have multi-generations and families who want to vacation together!"

Plenty of room for all

  5 of 5 stars

Very nice vacation home, wish we could into the home earlier than 5pm. After driving all day eager to get in and wind down. We came for a family reunion with 17 of us, plenty of room for all. Nice to have all my siblings and nieces and nephews under one roof. We can't wait to come back!!

We had four families staying at blue heaven June 4, 2016. The house was awesome. We had everything we needed. The pool was bigger than I expected so that was great. The walk to the beach was not very far. We had a great time. Everything was perfect.

Definitely recommend

  5 of 5 stars

We rented this for a family reunion. There were 14 of us and we had plenty of room. We had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and a short walk to the beach. A golf cart is available for those who prefer not to walk. The pool was great. There is a small, spill - over pool that is perfect for toddlers. We definitely recommend this place and would love to come back again.

We had a good time

  5 of 5 stars

Our family enjoyed our stay at Blue Heaven. There was ample room for everyone of us to spread out. When we all wanted to be together, the large common areas were great. Everyone was comfortable and glad to stay in t his home. Although it was a nice home, there were a few complaints. The grill was a bit dirty. We contacted the office and they sent someone out to clean it. We were told that it wasn't cleaned prior to our arrival as normally scheduled due to rain. Some of the fans didn't work (maybe dead batteries in the remotes?). We didn't contact the office about the fans as we were already in the house and didn't see the point. If you have a large party, then this is definitely the house for you. I also recommend that you pay the extra $50/day to heat the pool. It was freezing and I refused to get in it. But most of the kids and a couple of other adults seemed to be ok with it once they were in there. The golf cart was very handy when transporting folks and gear back and forth to the beach. Just be careful when driving up and down the road. It's a gravel road with some potholes. This was our 3rd stay with Newman-Dailey. Overall, I would recommend this house for your vacation. You won't regret it!

Manager's Response
Thank you for taking time to leave your review of your recent stay at Blue Heaven. We were excited to see that you were pleased with the location, size and general condition of the house and disappointed that we let you down with the grill. Our goal is to provide a clean, sanitized, and well-maintained home for each and every guest and we apologize when we fall short of that goal. We would have gladly sent someone from our housekeeping staff to take care of those items if you had called us. Thank you for your comments as they help us improve our service and again our deepeest apologies......please give us another opportunity to host you again in the future!

Great for a Girl's Getaway!

The folks at Newman-Daley Resort Properties hosted us in one of their many vacation rentals in the Destin and Fort Walton Beach Area. Newman-Daley has properties of all sizes in the area including luxury homes, condominiums, and a gulf-side hotel located in Crystal Beach. We stayed at Blue Heaven, a spectacular vacation rental with 10-foot ceilings, gracious archways, an open floor plan, and a gourmet kitchen. It is located in South Walton, just a short walk from the white sand beach. With 7 bedrooms and 61/2 bathrooms, there was plenty of room for our party of 10. It would also make a great gathering spot for several families vacationing together or a multi-generational family vacation. Read more at

Beautiful home

  5 of 5 stars

Newman Daily, I just wanted to thank you for a most enjoyable vacation. Blue Heaven was a beautiful home for my family to visit. We had a blast. Everything was great. The back yard was the perfect place for us all to hang out together. Your team was quick to respond to any maintenance problems and they were taken care of without any disruption of our vacation. We look forward to staying with you again next year!

The house was just what we wanted and needed. The kids enjoyed the pool and beach . The kitchen was equipped with everything a cook would need. My family is looking forward to next year in the same place

Heavenly vacation time!

  5 of 5 stars

We loved this house! It was perfect for my family, my sister's family and my parents to all get together. The kitchen was to die for, and there was actually enough room for all of us to dine together (when we could get the kids off the beach or out of the beautiful pool)! This house had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms so no one ever felt crowded. The golf cart was a great plus! My dad really enjoyed playing taxi driver to everyone going back and forth to the beach! It was a great house, great location and we highly recommend especially if you have multi-generations and families who want to vacation together!

Everything we wanted

  5 of 5 stars

OMG, this house was so perfect for our families staying together this spring break. So much space. Everyone loved the backyard for swimming, volleyball and the fact the owner provided a golf cart was just a cherry on top of everything amazing. We were very pleased and wish we could come back this fall.
