Crystal Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 11-13)

Beach Cottage located in the prime area of Destin!

GOLF CART included (optional during Summer Peak Season)- Drive 2 blocks and be at the center of it all!! Best Beach in the world Crystal Beach

ACTIVITIES - Gorgeous Destin Commons Mall, Movies, fast food and fine dining restaurants, bank, bars(best sport bar in town), bike and jogging path, and office depot. Outlets, boat rentals, jet ski rentals, pontoon rentals are on a few miles away.

LIFE GUARD- there is a life guard stand just off the entrance to the beach. Feel safe with the life guards who are at the beach from 9-6pm.

PATIO- Large patio with plenty of seating, eating and BBQ. Its just off the pool and game room. Plenty of shade in the afternoon and plenty of sun early in the morning for sun bathers.

WRAP AROUND COVERED DECK- Hang out on the deck for that early morning shade, plenty of seating and a great place to drink your coffee or get out of the rain. 4 doors in the house leads you to the covered deck.

Pool: The home has one of the biggest pools in the neighborhood approx 10 feet deep. The pool has a walking ledge that goes around the deep end, a nice feature. It also has 4 seats that are in the pool where you can sit and relax with a cold drink, my personal favorite spot. The pool is private and is surrounded by palm trees.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach: We purchased a home here because we love the beach 'Crystal Beach', we love the neighborhood 'it's safe' and we love the convenience and location 'walking distance to shopping and dining' of the 'K Sea's' home.

We are a family of five. My husband a Soldier for the U.S. Navy, three boys ages 11, 9, and 6 and a myself a housewife. We love the city of Destin and the 'K Sea's' home. We got transferred here two years ago and we are sad to leave this small town full of happy tourist and the best beaches. We are being transferred again to Virginia Beach. We plan on coming back after we retire from the military and meanwhile we have to rent the home out to pay the mortgage. We hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we do. Thank you for supporting us in renting out our home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Being in the military we have traveled so much. We have seen many beaches, but nothing beats Crystal beach. I enjoy driving the golf cart down the block and getting to the beach, I enjoy walking around the corner to O'quigiles and getting a beer and watch the latest game. I enjoy the drinking a glass of wine on the porch and listen to the 22 palm trees at the 'K Sea's' home.

Not worth the money

  • 1 of 5
Stayed here with my 3 kids. The pool was a HUGE plus, since my 7 year old is a fish!! However, that's the best part. And even that was dirty and it seemed the filter was not working properly.
The house looked "picked up" but by no means clean!! I swept and had a pile of long dark hair!!! We are all blonde!!! Lol ewww
The pictures they have up of this house must have been taken many many years ago because the house does not look like that anymore. The pool area was filthy including the few chairs that sat around it. You can tell that the house used to be quite nice but clearly has not been kept up. I realize it must be difficult since it's a rental but cleaning it thoroughly would make a significant improvement.
I almost skipped leaving a review at all, I mean it wasn't great and not at all worth the amount we paid, but after discovering the fact that they do not wash all of the bedding after each guest, I felt obligated to make others aware!!!
Upon checking out you are instructed to put sheets and pillowcases in the bath tubs... However, NOT the quilts or comforters!!! According to the rules, "the housekeepers will decide if they need to be washed." !?!?!? Are you kidding me? I say if ANY other family slept on or under those items then they NEED washed!!! Gross!!! Dirt isn't always visibly seen nor are bed bugs or other critters!!! After I read that I could hardly sleep at night. Unacceptable! ALL linens should be washed after each renter!!!!
The housekeepers pick the house up but do not actually clean! Just because it looks tidy does not mean its sanitary!!

Another thing... The golf cart cost 50 bucks a day!!! And what they fail to mention BEFORE you arrive is that NO ONE under the age of 25 can drive it!! So my 20 year old daughter and 23 year old son were unable to use it....nevermind the fact that the turn signals didn't work and my little boys power wheels toy car goes faster than it goes! Not an exaggeration !!
Basically, beware. Wash all bedding upon your arrival!!! Walk to the beach and save yourself the insane fee for using the golf cart (get there faster anyway).
The day you leave, be sure you're out before 9:30. The "housekeepers" show up early and just come right in...
Bring cleaning supplies...you'll need them immediately. (Pretty sure the house was cleaner when we left than when we arrived).
I'm positive I'll be able to rent a different house with a pool that is near or on the beach for less money next year!

Owner's Response: Someone had a bad day! I am so sorry this guest had a bad experience at KC Cottage, it is a very popular house which is why it's booked all the time, and a good majority are repeat renters. I wish the guest would have mentioned any of her issues while she was here when would have had an opportunity to take corrective action. We would have immediately sent the cleaner back for a redo, and why wait three weeks to make her comments. I have 12 golf carts, I could have easily replaced that golf cart and put it in for repairs. We don't drive every golf cart every week, so we rely on guests letting us know of issues.

For her information no rental company washes bed spreads or comforters after ever guest. I don't mean to sound defensive, but I'm frustrated that I didn't get a chance to make things right before she wrote such a negative review. We don't get many bad reviews, but when we do we take each one seriously.

A bit disappointed

  • 3 of 5
we loved the house, pool and the location. What we didn't like was that when we needed assistance no one was around. About 4 days into our vacation we noticed that the jets weren't running in the pool and it was getting very dirty. I called and got voicemail so I followed the directions on the voicemail to call another person. When I spoke to that person and explained the problem he told me to text a message to the original number. I sent texts and never heard a thing. Other than the pool not functioning and getting dirty we enjoyed the area and the house. I would suggest that you put up handrails for the outside steps as I slipped and broker my foot too!
