LOCAL OWNER/MANAGER = GREAT VACATION...I not only live here, but it is my Full-time job to verify that my guest are taken care of during their stay. Should any issue arise, rest assured that instead of possibly having to wait hours for a Management Company or Absentee Owner to contact you, I am a phone call away....I mention this because according to my prior guests, this along with the care and attention I give is what sets my properties apart. Be sure to check my reviews!!!

Call me if you have any questions 850-420-0532.

About Fawn Cougot

I live in this beautiful city of Destin and absolutely love it.....I stay busy managing my properties so I can ensure that my visitors will have a great vacation experience. I am a lisenced Real Estate Agent and tennis fanatic. As a native Texan, I love that my friends and family have such a great place to come visit. Most important to you is that I take pride in my properties and have many repeat vacationers.

Fawn Cougot purchased this house in 2002

Why Fawn Cougot chose Crystal Beach

Having the most beautiful beaches in the United States along with easy access for visitors made it an easy decision to buy vacation rental property in Destin. This is a family oriented vacation spot and once you arrive, you instantly are uplifted by the beauty of everything. The options of things to do is endless. There are boat rentals, parasailing, world class golf coarses, Big Kahuna Water Park, fine dining, excellent shopping, tennis, and most of all beautiful beaches.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our families third year at Fawndango's. We really love it!

This time we brought fishing poles and went surf-casting on the beach & also at Fort Walton Pier. So fun!!!!

Thank you so much for providing such an awesome place to make memories. It's more than we could've asked for and we feel very fortunate to have found it.

Wonderful Destin Home

  • 4 of 5

Took a family vacation to Destin and were very happy with Fawndango! The house was located very close to everything but you couldn't hear traffic or city noise. The golf cart made trips to the beach and restaurants a breeze. Fawn was an exceptional host and very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Fabulous Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for groups with 3 separate buildings with bed and bathrooms. It very clean an comfortable. We loved hanging on the front porch and around the pool. Fawn was great and came by to make sure everything was OK. We appreciated the owner being local and caring and able to solve any problems that may have arisen although none did. Convenient to everything in Destin and so quiet and peaceful. Thank you Fawn, we had a great time.

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the house(s); perfect for all family members. Loved the arrangement of the house where the family could enjoy the togetherness & do their own thing. The location is awesome & close enough to walk or take the covered golf cart down to the beach. Anyone coming in should definitely consider the golf cart-we enjoyed riding down to the beach, shopping & dining out. The yard was totally fenced in for our loving pets. I absolutely loved having Fawn onsite to address any issues we might have come across. Thanks again for everything Fawn! I would highly recommend the rental and hope to return real soon! Sharon

Crystal Beach is located on the east side of Destin just south of the Mid Bay Bridge. We are 6 mies west of Sandestin. Just south of the Destin Commons Mall and various stores makes it a great place to stay not having to drive any distance. Everything you need is 'just around the corner'.
