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.
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.
