About The Owners


Our Family

We are a family of 5 living in Westfield, Indiana. Holly teaches first grade and Zach works for a company that focuses on car seat safety for children. We are now in the stage of parenting where we have all teenagers and look forward to time at Miramar Beach as a family just as much as getting time there without the kids. ;)


We purchased this townhome in 2020.

Why  Blue Surf

Our journey to owning Blue Surf 17 began in spring of 2013. This was an important trip because due to the loss of Holly's dad in February of 2013, we became committed to a life focused on making memories with family and friends.


Every year since, we have stayed in numerous condos at Miramar Beach and it became our 'home away from home'.  Over the years, we have taken our kids on trips from New York to Arizona, but their hearts and minds always reflect back to Destin at Blue Surf as their favorite.


Through being at Blue Surf, we have learned to cherish the simplicity and self-reflection of what naturally takes place when we return to the beach. Our vision is to provide a place for others to find the same experience.


What Makes Blue Surf Unique

Although we've stayed at other properties, we have always been drawn back to Blue Surf. We find it to be the perfect fit - open yard where our kids have played frisbee and lacrosse, courtyard pool with easy access from the condo, perfect ocean views.


Our trips include daily visits to Pompano Joe's happy hour, morning walks on the path along Scenic Gulf Drive, and morning shell search walks toward the east that include a stop at Bad Ass Coffee along the path on the way back.

Most importantly, all of these activities are done with others - and all of the great conversations and memories that come along the way.  

We invite you to come create your own.
