PET FRIENDLY, GULF VIEWS, 500 FT TO BEACH, PRIVACY

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-12)

'Down to Kokomo'

Take the advice of the Beach Boys and come on 'Down to Kokomo'! Get here fast and then take it slow; that’s where you want to go, on down to Kokomo Row!

You know you are at the beach when you drive into our little community called Crystal Beach. Colorful houses and white picket fences line the streets. Kokomo Kove is a small 2 street neighborhood just feet from the Gulf of Mexico, and both streets end with cul-de-sacs. No thru traffic so lots of privacy! As you are turning into the neighborhood, look directly across the street beachside, and you will see our dedicated beach access!

Our 3 story home is located just 500 feet from the Gulf of Mexico on a quiet cul-de-sac. As soon as you step out of the car you'll feel you are in a tropical forest. You definitely know you are at the beach when you walk into a world of color. Our home is warm and inviting but absolutely fun and bright. There are no boring rooms in this house!

The living room, kitchen and dining room are an open concept so it makes this space feel large and inviting. Guests can be sitting in the living room, cooking in the kitchen or sitting at the dining room table, and all can be included in the conversation if they want to be. If not, it's cozy enough for each room to have its own gathering space. Enjoy a 46” HDTV with WIFI, Netflix and a Blue Ray Player in the living room. The couch makes into a queen size bed when needed or can be used as a twin to sleep one person.

We have 2 bedrooms and 1 bath downstairs. Each bedroom has a queen bed and you'll love the feel of the 300-600 ct 100% cotton sheets. There's plenty of space in the closets for you to put your clothes away so you won't have to be stepping over luggage on the floor. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan for those who need a little extra breeze to sleep along with 32' flat screen TV's.

The downstairs bath has a large walk-in travertine shower and 2 sinks. There is a fully enclosed outdoor shower so when it's crunch time for getting ready, someone can step out there and knock out a quick one. Towels are right inside the back door. Just grab one on your way out!

The laundry room is equipped with a washer and dryer along with places to hang towels and swim suits when you come back from the beach.

The Master Bedroom and bath are on the 2nd floor. This very large room has a king size bed and a twin size sleeper chair great for when you need to keep a child close. The furniture is completely built in so there is an abundance of storage space. Two ceiling fans hang from a beam in the vaulted ceiling. This room has a 32” Sony HDTV.

Adjoining the Master Bedroom is a Master Bath with 2 sinks, walk-in shower, and large Jacuzzi bath. The bath sits in a bay window and has a beautiful candle chandelier for those evenings when you just want to get away from everyone, relax and enjoy a romance novel. Or on a less romantic side, throw the kids in there and let them play while they wash off the sand.

Now head on up to the 3rd floor. This spacious room can be used as a bedroom, a game room or both. The sofa sleeper makes a queen bed, the chair and half makes a twin bed, and there's a game table for just having fun and enjoying the 360 degree panoramic view of Crystal Beach. It's 50 feet up so you can see the gulf, the lake, and all the house tops from our 17 windows on this floor. There's a door for privacy and the room is stocked with games. This room also has a 26' flat screen TV.

You’ll have a hard time deciding which deck you want to spend your free time on, the front porch, the back deck or off the Master on the second floor.

The back deck is a great place to gather with family or friends to watch the sunset or have a beer with the cook while he/she is grilling dinner on the gas grill. It has a side burner in case you want to boil up some shrimp to go along with those awesome New York Strips you're going to have.

Don’t forget the fully enclosed hot/cold shower perfect for washing off the sand after a day at the beach and to use it as an extra shower when needed.

The front porch is perfect for your morning coffee. Enjoy the lush landscaping and saying hi to the walkers and bike riders as they pass by for their morning exercise. Maybe they will inspire you to do the same.

The deck off the Master has 2 chaise lounge chairs so you can sun, enjoy an afternoon nap or just sit and read.

We have a fenced backyard and are pet friendly. The cul-de-sac is a great place for the kids to roller blade, play hockey, throw a football or frisbie and ride their bikes. You can sit on the porch and watch them or keep an eye on them from the living room and kitchen.

Please email owner for additional pictures!

You will absolutely love Down to Kokomo!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Kerry,



This trip to Destin has been fantastic! And the main reason besides the gorgeous beach is this amazing house. Thank you so much for your loving care and attention to detail in making this home such a warm (cool!) and comfortable place to stay. I would like to think (hope) that if we ever had a VRBO that it would be as nice as yours. You set a high standard!



Thanks again,



P.S. Jack and Clara loved it too!

We raised our family in this house and have enjoyed every minute of the 17 years we have been able to live here but recently accepted a new job in Jacksonville, FL. Our loss is your gain because you get to share this amazing home and our beautiful beaches. Enjoy!

GREAT WEEK IN A HOME THAT FELT LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I (and our two standard poodles) had a wonderful week here. The neighborhood is quiet and the home is very comfortable. Destin has become our favorite fall destination and this year the weather was perfect every day! We have been renting beach houses on both the Atlantic side and gulf side for over 30 years. This is the most "homey' home we've ever stayed in. The many extra touches were appreciated.

EXCELLENT HOME TO RENT FOR VACATION IN DESTIN

  • 5 of 5
Our desire to have a nice home to rent for a large group was met with this great house. We could not have been more pleased with the furnishings and location of the house. Since the house sits in a cul de sac there was no thru traffic and it was just a short walk to the beach. Kerry was very responsive to the questions I had and also immediately had our gas grill tank replaced when that was noticed empty. I'd rent this place again without hesitation.

BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED AND FURNISHED WITH EVERYTHING WE NEEDED FOR OUR WEEK AT THE BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the house in Kokomo Cove. It was perfect for our three generation family vacation with plenty of room for everyone. The view from the top floor was amazing. The fenced back yard and deck area was beautiful and private. We loved the ice cream truck that drove by every afternoon. The location was excellent, a short walk to the beach and a short drive to anything in Destin. Kerry was so helpful with information and answering questions. We would definitely stay there again!

WISH I WERE BACK IN "DOWN TO KOKOMO!!!"

Wish I were back in "Down to Kokomo!!!"
  • 5 of 5
Last July our extended family . . . two married kids and the 3 grandkids . . . stayed in this property for the dream vacation of a lifetime. It was idyllic; a beautiful home in a movie-like setting. It was perfect for a big group of varied ages; we could all be together or get some space. I HAVE SAID SINCE THAT THIS WAS THE BEST VACATION I HAVE EVER HAD. We just had a bad experience in another state, and it made me realize how special this property is. I don't think you can go wrong!
