An entertainer’s dream, the first floor is home to a game room equipped with a tournament-size pool table, wet bar, and quick access to the backyard. Blue Whale’s backyard is unlike anything you have ever seen. A large pool, heating available for a fee, private putting green, and a private gas grill. Spend your day sunbathing as your kids splash through the pool. Whip up some hamburgers and hotdogs before heading in from your blissful day at Blue Whale. The first floor is also where you will find multiple bedrooms and bathrooms.

There is nothing like lounging in a beach chair, soaking up the Florida sunshine, listening to your kids joyfully building sandcastles, and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. As you head in, wash away the sand in the outdoor shower and throw your beach towels in the washer so they are ready for another day.

Not only are you a quick walk from the beach, but also delicious restaurants and exciting activities. Our Gulf Coast Guide is the perfect resource for guests looking to enjoy Destin from a local’s perspective. Make sure to check it out for some vacation inspiration before you arrive!

The Grey Whale was a great family home. We hosted 32 family members and there was plenty of space for all. The beds were comfortable and the responsiveness of Southern Vacation Rentals was quick. I would recommend this home.
