About the owner: This is our 5th vacation rental and I have been managing our properties for over 15 years and love what I do! I grew up close by in Pensacola. Our other homes are in Destin (4 blocks away), Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, and currently building in Blowing Rock, NC right now also. We bought this land and custom designed this house to have no wasted space and great flow for large groups.

Why this property? Incredible amenities and location, location, location! Dozens of restaurants, shopping, and groceries all within a few minutes. Rooftop balcony, hot tub plus heated pool, pool table, and 8 King suites ALL with attached baths. Walk 3 - 4 minutes to beach at end of our street. Free chair service for 6 plus tons of beach supplies!

Guestbook comments from the host:

Blue Barracuda was the BEST. It was very spacious, even with our party of 20! With the multiple living areas, everybody could make themselves comfortable without feeling crowded, even with the unfortunate weather that we had all week. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and so did the rest of the house! And last but not least, the backyard…..IT WAS AMAZING! The pool & hot tub were on a grand scale which matched the house perfectly; everything you could possibly need! We will be back to the Blue Barracuda next year!! Thank you so much Dana & TJ, y’all are the best hosts!

Blue Barracuda is amazing!!

What an awesome house!! So much room, so much to do just at the house BESIDES swimming in the luxurious pool or relaxing in the hot tub while watching your favorite show or movie. We had the best time!! Exploring the top floor, playing pool, planning a bike or golf cart ride; not one boring minute. Just wonderful. Dealing directly with the friendliest owners is such a plus. I can’t say enough, you just have to see it!

Fantastic stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful new home. It had everything possible to make our stay enjoyable! It was clean, in a lovely area of Destin, and we loved, loved, loved the awesome backyard pool & hot tub! We had such a relaxing stay, we didn’t want to go home! Dana is so accommodating and easy to work with. Thanks Dana!
