Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had to vacation the last week of April due to different schedules, but it was the perfect time to go. The house was everything and more than we imagined. We felt at home at this house and the owners were so helpful. The golf cart made going to the beach so easy. Honestly, I can't think of one single thing I would change about that place. I would recommend this house to anyone who loves to vacation in Destin like my family does. No more condos for us!!! We will definitely rent this house again and I can hardly wait.

The Perfect Family Reunion Home

  • 5 of 5

When my Soldier came home for his mid-tour leave from Afghanistan, our family was hoping for a very special place to spend a week of vacation. We could not have found a more perfect and warm environment to reunite and make some incredibly special family memories than the Crystal Beach House. This home is a gem! It was cleaned and maintained magnificently and provided every amenity we could have possibly wanted to make our stay a delight. Scotta has a beautiful sense of decorating style so that each room of the house left us feeling like we were in high-end, luxury accommodations, and yet it was still completely comfortable and functional to accommodate the needs of a large family. The thoughtful attention to detail in equipping the house to make our stay effortless and family-oriented was much appreciated. All the bedrooms are incredible, but the Master bedroom/bathroom we stayed in was exceptional (with a bed so comfortable that I even had to get the mattress brand!). Highlights of our stay included lots of time as a family around the open kitchen and dining areas. The large living area with a great puzzle table and media system for "March Madness" viewing in surround sound was perfect. The pool and hot tub at night were a real treat after spending the day a stone's throw away at the beach. We also found with Scotta's recommendations more than enough dining options to satisfy our culinary wishes. Both the adults and the kids agree that this home exceeded our expectations for a wonderful beach vacation and family reunion. We felt so blessed to have had the opportunity to stay there.

A vacation house worth visiting again.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five adults and three children had a wonderful experience at the Crystal Beach House. Our Thanksgiving at the beach couldn't have been a more memorable holiday. The house is equipped with everything we needed and more. Having the golf cart at our disposal allowed us to transport the children to the beach quickly and safely. The extra architectural details and upgrades made for a lovely home. The beds were really comfortable with soft sheets. I would recommend bringing your own pillows and some extra cotton blankets.

The house has two living areas in the main house that allowed everyone to have their own space. There's the bonus of having the guest house that accommodated our childless adult very comfortably. The pool was super clean. Paying the extra money to have it heated was worth every penny.

The location of Crystal Beach in Destin was super convenient. The neighborhood was safe and pleasant to walk. And, of course, the beach in Destin is white and the water so clear. The Emerald Coast is not a misnomer.

The Crystal Beach House is the sort of vacation home that you'll want to return to. It's that nice.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were at home. The home was well maintained and the decor was beautiful. We had a rather large group for our wedding renewals and the house was perfect as we never felt like we were stepping on each others toes. The location was perfect as well. Being 1 block from the beach right down from the entrance to walk onto the beach was perfect. I would highly suggest you bring your family to this home in this gorgeous city on your next trip. The owners are also very pleasant and kind and attend to your concerns or needs immediately. We hope to go back again one day and we will definitely stay at the Crystal Beach House!
