Destin is such a beautiful location and we have always loved the Crystal Beach community. We wanted a house within walking distance to the beach for our family to enjoy.

4 GENERATIONS FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place for a family reunion. We had so much fun. The pool area is amazing, we had dinners out there every night and also played group games like Family Feud which got all ages participating and laughing. There is a very short walk to a gorgeous beach. We left early morning and set up our beach tent and chairs which worked out perfect. There is a private guest house just past the pool that worked out perfect for a young family with small children. My brother and his family had rented a home nearby so we had a lot of fun walking back and forth to visit. The ages ranged from 2 months old to 85 years old. The sunsets are amazing and we live in Clearwater Beach!! There are a lot of fun things to do for a short drive. We especially enjoyed the Harborwalk Village - like a boardwalk with shops and restaurants. We took several family photos on the beach right before sunset that turned out fantastic and will be cherished by all. We had a great time, thank you Linda !!

HOME SWEET HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd visit to Crystal Pearl. The house is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. Beach access is just around the corner. There are beach chairs, beach buggy and umbrella provided for the beach. The backyard with pool is wonderful when you need a break from the beach. The location is perfect with restaurants, shopping and activities close by. Linda has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. It's like taking the comforts of home with you on vacation. We can't wait for our next trip to Crystal Pearl.

BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS AT THE PEARL

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Crystal Pearl for 10 days over the holidays and loved the house and location. Close to everything and balconies great for watching sunsets over the ocean. Linda was super helpful answering any questions we had and helping us choose local spots. House had everything we needed and more. Kids loved the heated pool and bigger kids loved the beach. We hope to come back every year!

CRYSTAL PEARL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a week with my girl friends and we all had a great time. there was lots of room for the 7 of us and we could all find our own private space as needed. The back yard pool is very private with the fencing all around. Destin beaches are beautiful (and empty) in late September and we walked the beach every day after stopping for breakfast at Camilles (great smoothies!). House had tons of dishes, towels, nice linens, etc.. and even had beach chairs for us on the back porch. Also lots of beach toys back there but we didn't need those. All in all a great stay and we hope to return next year!

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from a wonderful week at Crystal Pearl. There is nothing that you could possibly want for that is not provided at this house. There are tons of spices, flour, coffee, creamer, dishes, towels, everything. Each morning we enjoyed our cofffee and toast out on the covered porch in the rockers. There is plenty of seating both inside and out. You are just a short 1 block walk to the beach. The house is super close to several Walmarts and Publix stores for groceries as well as every other type of shopping you could want. Two nice Antique stores off South Holiday Road. We would definitely rent this house again.

CRYSTAL

  • 3 of 5
The house was just ok as far as cleaniness goes -- the tub and sink were totally clogged and I had to call to get them cleared - cannot understand how the cleaning person wouldn't notice that - there were also a quite a few large palmetto bugs in the house (at least two every day) which made everyone uneasy the entire time (especially the girls). The rugs were dirty in the loft area and the kitchen (not sure why a rug would be in the kitchen anyway) We were told the house was one block to the beach which was true except for the fact that you couldn't get a spot to sit since the area was restricted to people staying at the hotels on the beach so we had to pay $6 per carload to go to Henderson State Park. The adverstising was very deceiving and we were really disappointed in that. The beach in Destin is beautiful but the area is way too crowded and commercial for our particular taste. We almost got killed twice on 98 due to reckless drivers. I don't think we would go back again.
