Green Reef Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)

WELCOME to Paradise - right on the Gulf! Green Reef #5 has more deck space than any other - 1700+ sq ft ! Three floors completely refurbished and refurnished with adobe and ceramic tile throughout. The Caribbean flair and decor soothes you immediately into Island Time. Over 2500 sq ft of inside living & over 1700 sq ft of patios & decking gives 2 or 10 guests room to breathe and enjoy beachfront living. This West End corner townhome allows more windows and more decks for ocean views, and more outside space for entertaining. This section of Beautiful Crystal Beach is as private as it gets in Destin - or for that matter, in the USA! Enjoy Coffee with the Dolphins in the morning and make personal toasts to the Sunset each evening from your choice of 3 decks - or even better, from your beach chair.

WIFI is included if you have the need to connect to the real world.

The vaulted Master Suite on the top floor Gulf side has a King size bed, a custom built-in wall unit covering one wall, beautiful bath and private balcony with a bar height table and barstools for unobstructed views.

A 2nd Master Suite on top floor has a Queen size bed and also includes a private bath.

The 3rd bedroom on the top floor has a set of bunk beds - two twins.

The Street level with kitchen, breakfast bar, dining space, custom built-in wall units and huge living area has an additional balcony with bar height table & barstools, adding even more space to your living area.

The Lower Beach level with full bath, kitchen, breakfast bar, living, dining area and bedroom has a Queen bed in the bedroom and a Queen size sofa bed in the living area.

The deck on this beach level is enormous - 30 feet wide due to being on the end unit - and 30 feet deep with bar height table and barstools, outside dining table and chairs, four padded chaise lounge chairs and additional seating. Look out over the beautiful white sandy beach - it is EXPANSIVE and deep and whiter than ever!! The deck has outside lighting when you want more than the stars. A storage shed at the back of the deck is already stocked with beach chairs and umbrellas for you plus rafts and toys for the kids.

All bedrooms and both living areas have TVs and DVD players.

About NancyDee

We bought this wonderful Beach Home and moved to Destin from Texas - it was our full time home for over 16 years. A few years ago, we moved out of Destin to live on a lake and be nearer our kids/grandkids. However, we've kept GreenReef 5 so our family can always go back and enjoy it and we will be taking fewer reservations going forward because our family has grown so! All three floors have been totally and professionally refurbished and we are so happy to share its beauty with discerning Beach Lovers who will care for it as we do. Living Room and SunRoom furniture was replaced early in 2015.

NancyDee purchased this townhome in 1991

Why NancyDee chose Green Reef

We chose to buy a home on the beach in Destin mainly for the white sand and crystal clear water. But the fishing, shopping, golf, restaurants, watersports and proximity to parks, rivers and wildlife all helped us choose this unique location.

What makes this townhome unique

The best thing is walking out on the deck of any of the three levels for coffee, drinks or just to sit and enjoy the Gulf any time of day or night. Of course, the fact that you can grab a beach chair & umbrella from the lower level shed and go directly onto the sandy beach is extra special too!

Green Reef...our family vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 stayed at Green Reef in 2009 and when we booked for June 2012 there was no question as to where we would stay. We absolutely love Green Reef 5!!! We do family Destin vacations every 2 or 3 years. My daughter has booked it for next summer with friends. Green Reef 5 has become our family go to place in Destin.

Besides the Townhome being clean, fantastically decorated and comfortable for our family, we are spoiled to being able to walk right off the deck and put our feet in the sand. Private beach.."no" crowds. Kids can safely run, by themselves, back and forth form the water to the Townhome with one of us watching them. Highrises are 5 rows deep with umbrellas and chairs, Green Reef is one row...'us'. Private, quiet, relaxing the way a vacation should be. ps....Walkie Talkies work great for communicating from the beach to the Townhome :)

Great Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed at Green Reef #5 this past week and had a great time. The Townhome is exceptional and very nice. Walking out onto the deck and then directly onto the beach was outstanding!!!! The home is furnished very nicely and is in a great central location to upper Destin. The 4th wk is a very busy week but we had a private beach with security on site from Sun - Wed. a definite plus as the public beach was packed and we were very comfortable. Lots of beach chairs and toys provided, next door fireworks were outstanding!

We never could connect with wifi and could not find any instructions in the unit and none were provided by the management company. We were not very happy at check in as the management company did not have the unit ready until 6:00 pm with check in supposed to be around 4:00 pm!!!! This started the week off with a bad experience but it got much better once we actually got into the unit. It also took the refrigerator > 24 hrs. to get to a cooling temp of < 45 degrees.

All in all this was a great week though and we hope to return next year. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Ted, Janice, Angie, Jack, Leatrice, Rayven and Missy.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback. I will communicate with the management company immediately - sorry for those problems. The delay in check-in on a busy week is usually due to housekeeping issues, but still not acceptable. The wifi connection should have been handled immediately by the management office. No reason for it to have been down or a problem for you. Glad the rest of the week was a good one! Come back and see us! Nancy

The beach is the best in Destin and is minutes from The Commons Shopping Mall, Silver Sands Outlet Malls & Sandestin's Village Baytowne Wharf. Also only a short drive to World-Class Golf Courses & fabulous casual or fine dining restaurants. You can even walk on the Beach to Crab Trap, Cap'n Daves (right next door), Pompano Joes or Whale's Tail - all famous beachfront restaurants. Drive West through town to Destin's famous Harbor & Fishing Fleet - or drive East to 30A, Grayton Beach, SeaSide, Water Color, Alys Beach and other quaint Beach Communities. Better yet, just take a few steps South with your umbrella & chair and laze the day away on the white sand of your private beach. There are gulf and bay state parks, preserves and forests with hiking trails to visit, and be sure to see the rare dune lakes in South Walton. This is our family's second home and we will limit reservations for that reason.
