About Beach Blue

Beach Blue Properties, LLC, led by Ralph and Carla Abraham, is a fully licensed vacation property management company with a fresh approach. We began our property management venture in 2008 with only two properties. We have since grown to include property offerings from Destin to 30A.

We are a young, energetic company operated with the advantage of a wealth of experience. Our office is located in the Pilot House at Baytowne Wharf, Miramar Beach, Florida. The strength of our company is our experience. Carla Abraham has over 20 years of experience renting, selling and purchasing exclusive real estate. Ralph Abraham has 17 years experience in business management and real estate investment management.

Our company is large enough to accommodate client and guest needs, yet small enough to know our property owners personally. Our full time staff includes property managers, reservation specialists, maintenance personnel, professional housekeeping personnel, appliance and air conditioner repairmen on call, and summer student helpers.

Our Staff

Ralph Abraham


Ralph is co-owner of Beach Blue Properties, and is the guy who keeps all the balls in the air. He is originally from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. With a background in people management and investment, he is best at communicating with staff members and strategizing the “big picture”. Although Ralph is educated in accounting and has extensive experience in business management, it is unlikely you will ever find him sitting behind a desk. He is the proverbial extrovert – if you have met him, you like him.

Carla Abraham

Owner, Broker

Carla is co-owner and broker of Beach Blue Properties. She is originally from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. With a bachelor’s degree in psychology and many years of experience in real estate sales and investment, she is right at home managing vacation rental properties. She oversees property listings, accounting, advertising, and makes sure everyone gets paid right on time. As the broker of Beach Blue Real Estate, Carla is there to facilitate real estate transactions and assist clients in finding a dream home at the beach. Even though life at Beach Blue is extremely busy, Carla finds time to spend with her husband, three children, and two dogs… and still sneak off to the beach now and then.

Elise Watson-Stambaugh

Reservations Manager

Elise is our guest reservations guru. She joined the Beach Blue team in 2012 and really knows her stuff! Elise assists our guests in finding the perfect vacation spot- a cozy studio, a golf course villa, a luxury gulf front beach house, or anything in between. From the first inquiry all the way to check out, she goes above and beyond to assist our guests. With 24 years of business and customer service experience, Elise brings extensive knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm to the Beach Blue staff. Elise is originally from Madison, Mississippi, and earned a marketing degree from Mississippi State University. She and her husband, Jeremy, have seven children combined and three dogs to complete their busy family! When she is not working, you may likely find Elise wearing maroon and white, cheering on her Mississippi State Bulldogs.

Sarah Fleming

Operations Manager

Sarah works as operations manager and keeps all things Beach Blue in steady moving motion. From home improvement projects to organizing schedules for those busy Saturdays in the summer, Sarah oversees operations including inspectors, housekeepers, and maintenance staff. She has over 20 years in the hospitality industry, and is constantly on the prowl for new methods to streamline efficiency.   Though her roots (and heart) will always lie in Nashville, Sarah has lived in the Destin area since 2009. She has four children, though most people will say five if you count her beloved chihuahua, Chapo. Sarah’s bubbly personality makes strangers (and pets) feel like instant friends. With Sarah, there is rarely a dull moment. We can hardly imagine Beach Blue without her!

David Duncan

Senior Property Manager, Real Estate Agent

David is the liaison for property owners and Beach Blue staff. His focus is property management, real estate sales, and business development. Originally from Madison, Mississippi, David earned a BS degree in Communications from Mississippi College, with a minor in accounting. With years of corporate and real estate experience, David joined Beach Blue in December, 2017. As a senior property manager, David helps ensure that properties are maintained properly and property owners’ needs are addressed. As a real estate agent, he helps clients find their dream spot at the beach or expand their current portfolios. For property owners seeking a management company, David is especially skilled in identifying a prospective owner’s management needs, and welcoming them into the Beach Blue family. When not working, you can find David by the beach or spending time with friends and family.

Tatum Nace

Property Manager

Tatum Nace is from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where she was influenced by the real estate business from birth. As the daughter of an avid real estate investor and granddaughter of the owners of a nationally recognized Coldwell Banker Agency, Tatum has been exposed to real estate for years. When deciding on a career path, the natural fit was real estate sales, marketing and property management. She has experience remodeling homes, and is active in the Destin real estate market. As a Beach Blue property manager, Tatum brings fresh ideas, energy, and a keen eye for details. When we need direction that involves the latest advertising trends, she’s our girl! In her spare time, Tatum enjoys make up artistry, exercising, reading and traveling.

Cathy Conell


Cathy is from Destin where she lives with her son. She is always available to “fix-it”, and helps our property managers keep each property in tip top shape. When asked to say a few words about herself, she said “I am proud of many things in life, but nothing beats being a mother and grandmother. Fine wine, fine friends, walks on the beach when its warm, jigsaw puzzles when its cold. Loving the salt life in the Florida panhandle.” Well, that just about says it all!

Housekeeping Staff


Our housekeeping staff manager is shy about being featured on our website. However, we will mention that our housekeeping staff is the most reliable and professional group that we have worked with. Because housekeeping is such an important factor in our rental management success, we consider ourselves lucky to have this group of housekeeping professionals!
