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!

Great vacation

  • 3 of 5

This is our second time to rent in Clipper Cove. It's a great house with plenty of room for everyone, clean and well stocked! We had a great time walking to the shopping center, beach & nearby restaurants. The bike path is wonderful for walking or running - awesome view of the ocean and beautiful houses along the way. We had a long drive to get to Florida but it was well worth it to stay in this area.

Best Cottage In Crystal Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation! This was our first time using VRBO and we would definitely stay here again. The owner was excellent to work with and communicated in a very timely manner on any question we had. This house is in an excellent location, close walk to the beach, close to a fun coffee shop and scooter rental and close to great restaurants. Plus, the house had everything you would need. Very clean, inside and out. We could not have asked for a better house for our family vacation!

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was made complete with our stay at this beautiful home. Everything you needed was supplied. All we had to do it unpack and play. I could have not asked for a better time. My only regret is I did not get to meet the owner to thank them personally. I would highly recommend this location. Close to everything and felt just like home. Strike that Better than home. Hated to leave. Thanks so much for your hospitality .

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
