Very satisfied, great place to stay,

  • 5 of 5

Awesome stay, very nice and clean place and loaded with everything, nice spacious kitchen with all you need for a good stay, pots, pans, microwave, big stove, dish washer, even silverware, big 2 door fridge, blender, toaster, etc. A sizy living room, and everything fully furnished and functional, from a nice gas grill out in the patio to a big jacuzzi. House was a lot more than we expected from the pictures. A short walk to the beach didn't have to drive left the cars in the driveway and let's go. Got fast owner response for FAQ very nice, friendly down to earth people. Very satisfied on a scale of 1 to 10 we give it a 11. Just got back to Tx and already thinking of next years stay.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here especially since it is handicap accessible and my younger wheelchair bound sister was able to join us. The neighborhood is nice and quit the house is beautiful as well the beach it not too far but with kids we rented a golf cart and was able to cruise all down scenic 98 and explore. We had a great time and will be coming back!

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Destin is our favorite vacation destination. Our last 3 visits have been spent in this home. The owner is wonderful. She gives a great discount for repeat guests. She contacts me once we've settled in to make sure we don't have any questions or concerns. She responds quickly to any needs. The house is comfortable and well stocked. Our family of six fits nicely. The neighborhood is quiet and quaint. It's a short walk to Crystal Beach. It's the perfect location to shopping and groceries -in fact the Destin Commons is literally two blocks away. We love this house and location and we will definately stay here again on our next visit.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

While traveling to Destin for work, I was fortunate to find this "Gem" for my housing during my stay. The home is beautifully decorated, roomy, and was stocked with everything needed to be comfortable. It is convenient to the beach, shopping, and there are plenty of good restaurants near by. Bass Pro Shop is only a couple of blocks away, for the fishermen, with shopping in the center for the ladies. There is also a theater there for an occasional rainy day. The owners are the best, even extending my stay on 2 occasions. I was there for 5 months, enjoyed every minute, and you will too ! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for some quiet enjoyment at the beach.

Fantastic rental in Crystal Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit in the last 5 years. It's a great location in a cute neighborhood that's a short walk to the beach. I recommend using La Dolce Vita for your beach chair rental service (they set up directly in front of the public beach access) or you can easily take your own with you. The beach access has a ramp, bathrooms, and showers!

The house has plenty of room and the kids always love staying in the bunk room! The gas grill and cute wraparound porch make grilling out easy & fun. It comes with everything you need for your home away from home! Plus, you're a super short drive to Destin Commons, restaurants, and more for the meals that you don't feel like cooking. The neighborhood pool is great and my kids loved that the ice cream truck came to visit!

Destin is a well know charter fishing town with multiple opportunities for Gulf of Mexico fishing on large group boats, private charter boats or bay boats. Shore fishing and pier fishing are excellent also.

While the fisherman/women are catching dinner, the rest of the family can spend time at the world class Outlet Mall, sunbathing, beach walking, taking a hot tub or just plain relaxing. Pool heated March /April
