Why Bruce chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have owned many properties in the Destin area and fell in love with the Crystal Beach community. The community is lined with sidewalks and there are several restaurants and bicycle & boat rentals only a block away. Crystal beach also offers over a mile of undeveloped beaches at Henderson state park which is a short walk from the front door. This is truly the best Central location in Destin with easy access to restaurants, grocery stores and the Commons Mall only 2 minutes away by car. Silver Sands Outlet Mall, the largest in the United States is less than 5 miles away.

What makes this house unique

Crystal Beach has the whitest sand of any beach in the world. Combined with the azure blue water of the gulf of Mexico and the warm temperatures, this is truly paradise! There is nothing more serene than to hear the waves breaking 24 hours a day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home. Everyone had a wonderful time. The location was ideal, the home spacious and clean with lots of entertainment and the best part, fully stocked with all the kitchen cookware needed to feed our large family a full meal of any cuisine.

We will definitely be back again!

Best place to stay in Destin, FL w/ the perfect owner!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Seawatch was one of the best vacations I have ever had. When we walked into the home, we could tell there was love and care put into the property. There were plenty of amenities and everything you would need was provided. We never had an issue with anything or needed new appliances. Everything was practically new and a joy to use. The master bedroom view was out of this world and it felt like a hotel when we walked in. The beds were spacious and fit everyone comfortably. There were plenty of activities in the backyard to partake in, with the heated pool, ping pong table, and pool table. There were also hidden pool toys for us to use, which was a very pleasant surprise. The house was less than 50 feet from the beach and walking distance from tons of restaurants, gift shops, and gas stations. Absolutely everything a vacationer could ask for! To top it all off, Bruce was a phenomenal host! Whenever we had issues, he was one phone call away. He was never a hassle and trusted us as tenants. He was very friendly and reasonable with the security deposit and always timely on responses. I would rate my experience a 12/10, it was that exceptional! If you have any doubts about anywhere else, come to the Seawatch because you WILL NOT be disappointed!

Owner's Response: This was an exceptional group of college students from North Carolina who were reserved, respectful and great representatives of our young people today. I can't remember any group that I have been prouder to have as guests at "Seawatch" and they are more than welcome to come back next year. Bruce Owner

Great beach house, wonderful location !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, such great memories were made in a fantastic beach house with an awesome set up. The pool area was just perfect. We all spent many hours lounging in the pool and playing various games which entertained our group of young and middle age adults which consisted of 4 families. The location was great with very short walk to Crystal Beach which was absolutely beautiful. We stayed first week of October with great weather where we were protected from Hurricane Matthew which did not affect us at all. We only had a few minor issues which was corrected very promptly with a phone call to Bruce. Thank you Bruce for a great experience and hopefully we will be back, all agreed this is our number one choice in Destin for large group !!

I would recommend Seawatch to everyone. Well appointed, thoughtfully laidout in design and a fun place to stay. Adults could be away from adult kids, every age had a spectacular time! Great beach access. Thank you Bruce Shade, we will be back!!!!

House was spot on, Beach access not so much

  • 3 of 5

We loved the house, it was everything we were hoping for. Bruce was awesome and easy to work with, and made sure we had everything for our stay. I may have missed it, but I don't think we were made aware that the tiny amount of beach we had access to was roped off. So you had access to about a 20-25 yard wide stretch of beach (public access). The condos on the beach I guess own the rest, and have no trespassing signs posted. I was told that I could rent a umbrella about 200 yards down the beach for $40. Not a big deal, but definitely would have liked to of known that. We went the week school started so it wasn't too crowded, but I couldn't imagine in peak seasons. So to break it down: yes its a 2 min walk to the beach from the house to a tiny roped off piece of beach you can access. Or you can drag all of your stuff through a 15 min walk to spend $40 a day.

Owner's Response: This is the 11th year of renting this property. Never has there been a complaint of this nature from any of the 10,000+ people that have stayed at this property. To address this renters concern, we do not represent the condo vendors who rent beach chairs and umbrellas. We in fact, provide beach chairs, an umbrella,, boogie boards, floats, cooler and a wagon to transport all of these items free of charge. Crystal Beach remains the most popular beach in the Destin area and our intent has always been to provide the best possible experience for all of our guests.

"Seawatch" is centrally located close to everything...close to the beach which is across the street. Shopping, grocery stores, restaurants are less than one mile. A 2 minute car ride, a 5 minute bike ride or if your up to it, walk... it's only 15 minutes away!

The back yard is set up with a Private In ground Swimming Pool, Outdoor Pool Table, Outdoor Ping Pong Table as well as a Horseshoe pit. There is a Natural Gas grill, so you don't have to worry with changing propane gas tanks. Outdoor speakers provide the ambiance for any occasion.
