YOUR PARADISE DESTINATION! 3BR + BUNK/TOWER ROOM, FEW SUMMER DATES REMAINING!

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + bunk/tower room, & (2) sofa beds;3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

'Paradise Cottage' is a spacious three-story, cottage-style home located in the heart of Crystal Beach, one of Destin's most popular communities due to its proximity to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Located on a tranquil cul-de-sac the home is just one block from the beach and within walking distance to four major shopping centers including Destin Commons where you will find Bass Pro Shop, Hard Rock Cafe, Rave Movie Theater and many other shops and restaurants. In addition several of Destin's finest golf resorts are within a 5 minute drive from the home.

Perfect for a family or a couples' vacation every bedroom has a private bath, flat screen TV with Cable. Relax in the large jacuzzi tub in the Master Bath or take a siesta on the screened porch just off the Master Bedroom. On evenings when you want to dine in there's a large stainless steel gas grill on a shady grilling deck with plenty of cookware and a pantry full of spices and staples to make your meal a bit easier to prepare. The large open floor plan of the kitchen, dining room and living area adds to the enjoyment. As an added bonus, we have updated all of these rooms with new furnishings and accentuated the kitchen with granite, plaster backsplash and cool coastal paint for the cabinetry including all bathrooms! Additionally, there are 2 queen sofas in the living room if needed along with the tower/bunk room!

Enjoy our newly renovated air-conditioned Paradise Tower which has added a Twin Day Bed w/Trundle to the top floor! This room also includes a flat screen TV and additional remote A/C unit. Perfect for teens or an extra guest to enjoy the view from the top of Destin! Gulf view, morning sunbathing, afternoon sea breezes and fabulous evening sunsets make the third floor deck one of the home's main attractions. If there 's a book worm in your group, the third floor tower/widow's watch, is surrounded by windows allowing endless natural light. Also, coffee it up or wine it down each day on the relaxing wrap-around front porch w/a plantation swing.

Cool off in the community pool conveniently located just across the street which is also heated in the spring and fall months.

Stay with us and you will see why 'Paradise Cottage' is truly a vacation home deserving of its name!

My husband and I live in Northest Alabama and have been visiting Destin all of our lives. It has been our dream to eventually live here so when we were able to purchase a home here we came a bit closer to making that dream a reality. We own a business in Gadsden Alabama manufacturing scaffolding, skid steer attachments and also manage two rental stores. Our oldest daughter graduated from Auburn University and worked at Sandestin Resort during her internship and decided to stay. Now she has two babies so we are beginning to spend more and more time here. We rent our home mostly during the summer months but spend a lot of time here during the offseason. We look forward to eventually retiring here and making Destin our permanent home.

Randy Rintala purchased this house in 1998

Crystal Beach is such a great community for families and family vacations. Our home is located in Clipper Cove which is a circle of homes with no thru streets so even though it is within walking distance to everything it is also very peaceful. Also the beach access is only about 200 yards away and the beach there is never as crowded as other areas in Destin.

One of our favorite features of our home is the third floor deck. From there you can catch the ocean breezes while watching the boats go by. It is nice and sunny in the mornings and cool and shady for evening sunsets. Also the cul-de-sac neighborhood of Clipper Cove is great for biking, jogging or just walking and enjoying the scenery.

Our stay at Paradise Cottage was absolutely wonderful. It was supplied with everything we needed and more. Our group included my husband and I, our daughter, son-in-law, and 2 babies, and our son and girlfriend. We felt as though we were a part of the community. The short walk to the beach was beautiful. We looked forward to coffee at Camille's each morning. We also rented bikes to ride around. The service and help we received was exceptional. Thank you so much!

From the minute we arrived to the time we departed, our vacation experience was wonderful! The amenities described in the brochure were exceeded throughout our stay. The cabin was well furnished with updated appliances and decor.

Great vacation!

I have only one complaint about Paradise Cottage....I didn't get to stay long enough!! The description was accurate and true. It was so convenient to the beach as well as the pool. The house was very clean and very well maintained. They even had beach towels for us to use during out stay. The neighborhood was very charming and a neighbor even brought us homemade cookies. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a great place to stay in Destin. So convenient to groceries, restaurants and shopping. I would certainly return to Paradise Cottage anytime I want to visit Destin.

I've stayed at a lot of vacation rentals over the years and most don't look anything like the photographs. Paradise Cottage is even better than the pictures! The walk to the beach was very short, shorter than we'd figured using internet maps. The neighborhood cut through to walk to the beach is about thirty yards away and then straight down Hutchinson to the Pavilion. The kitchen had all the utensils, pot, pans, etc that you need to cook for your family (not the typical limited supply of other rentals). Everything was maintained to very good standards. The other half of my family rented another home nearby, and they had very limited kitchen utensils. They had to come over and borrow our can opener. Also their house had been abused by previous renters to the point that some of the doors were about to fall off the hinges. If you don't plan to respect the property you are renting, please don't stay at Paradise Cottage because I'd like for it to remain this nice for the next time I come to Destin. Thanks for the great week (in big part because of your home!) We'll definitely recommend Paradise Cottage to our friends and family.
