About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Loosely translating to "The House in the Sky," this four-story, gulf-front property takes advantage of the seemingly infinite views that you can experience from the high-rising luxury home. Casa de Cielo is a 4,300 square foot, 4 bedroom, 4 full and 2 half bath, private home in the highly sought after gated community of Destiny by the Sea. With four Master Suites, a private movie theater with stadium seating, an in-home elevator, and a rooftop deck, Casa de Cielo is a home custom built to take in the marvels of the Destin area.

Guests will be greeted to the home by a private movie theater with stadium seating, a 120-inch projection screen, surround sound, a DVD collection, and a wet bar. The wet bar has a popcorn maker, a mini-fridge, and an icemaker. Also located on the first floor is the first of four Master Suites. The first floor Master has a King bed, a walk-in closet, private porch access, and a private Master Bath. The Master Bath is complete with dual sinks, a stand-alone shower with a bench, and a private water closet.

The second floor houses an open living area with stellar Gulf views. The living room seats six and includes a fireplace, a large LG flat screen TV, a DVD player, and a wet bar with an ice maker and a mini-fridge. The formal dining area has seating for eight, with additional seating for three available at barstools along the kitchen counter. The Kitchen has Thermador appliances, a small flat screen TV, granite countertops, a wine holder, two blenders, and two coffee makers. Just off the kitchen you will find a wine cellar. You will also find the home's second Master Suite on the second floor. The second floor Master features a King bed, a flat screen TV, a DVD player, and a private Master Bath. The Master Bath has a stand-alone shower with a bench, a separate tub, a private water closet, and a dual sinks. Also located on the second floor, just off the kitchen and dining area is a half bath.

The third floor plays host to two more Master Suites. The first third floor Master has a King bed, a flat screen TV, and a Master Bath. The Master Bath is complete with a stand-alone shower, a tub, dual sinks, and a private water closet. The second Master Suite on the third floor is the largest of the four Masters. Through a long hallway with columns spanning the walls and an arched ceiling, this suite is as large as it is luxurious. The suite features a King bed, a flat screen TV, a private porch with Gulf views and seating, and a wet bar with a mini-fridge/icemaker. The Master Bath off this Suite features a large rain head shower with a bench, his-and-her vanities, a jeted tub, a private water closet, and his-and-her walk-in closets.

The first through the third floors are accessible by an in-home elevator, however, those willing to make the trip to the fourth floor will be rewarded by panoramic views of the jewel toned water of the Gulf and the surrounding area. The fourth floor hosts a bonus room with a sleeper-sofa seating three, a flat screen TV, a kitchenette, and a half bath. The kitchenette has an electric range, a microwave, a small sink, a fridge/freezer, and a small dishwasher. Through this bonus room you will find access to the rooftop deck area. With a hot tub, an outdoor shower, lounge chairs, and an al fresco dining area for seven, the rooftop deck offers some of the best views Destiny by the Sea has to offer.

Casa de Cielo also features private beach access on one of the nicest stretches of beach, right between Frangista beach and Crystal Beach. In addition to all the amenities that the private home has to offer, you also have access to the community amenities. Destiny by the Sea boasts a large community pool, as well as a gym. The community is marveled at for both its massive luxury properties, and the privacy provided within its gates. The community is known for being posh and quiet, and offering the best that Destin has to offer in terms of properties and views.

not enough room for all the problems of this.....nice house, really poorly maintained

  • 1 of 5

Our wedding was at this house just this last week and yes the house is a nice house and the beach is great, but the service of 5 star and the maintenance was much less than expected.

We walked in the day before our beach wedding after having paid for the unit and being refused a walk though (before we rented) to a house that looked like they had just rented it to a group of spring break teenagers. The damage to this house had to be cumulative and I don't believe happened just before we arrived. As a matter of fact, I asked one of the 5 star employees that was there when we arrived about some of the cabinet trim literally falling off the cabinets and he told me that they wanted to fix the issues, but had not been able to get permission from the owners to get the repairs done.

There was a huge stain in one of the bedrooms on the floor that was being cleaned but then no one could use that room that night, the blinds were literally broken and hanging off several windows, only 2 televisions worked and the remotes to those didn't work, several lights in the house didn't work including some important ones like that great rooftop deck area where our reception dinner was held. The trim in the movie theater room was literally falling off the cabinets and oh yes, the front door would not stay shut. Balcony screen broken as well.

The worst problem though, we had booked the unit for our entire family to stay in. The elevator didn't work so our elderly guest were really upset as were the wedding contractors. Tables chairs food props music equipment ect....had to be carried up 4 flights of stairs. No fun for the bride to be carrying chairs up stairs.

So here is the really bad thing. I called 5 star 3 different times about all this and their idea of service is well we cant do anything about all this now, how can we help? But they never offered a solution, not one!

So be aware that yes the house is nice, but unless they take it down for a month to paint all the water stains under the windows, clean the windows, fix all the broken lights, replace blinds, redo the cabinets in the movie theater and fix that elevator, don't expect what your paying for to be 5 star. As of yesterday, it's 1 star and a full moon in your face.

The Perfect Beachouse

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Cielo was the perfect house for our vacation. It is beachfront in the very prestigious Destiny by the Sea neighborhood. If you have never stayed in Destiny by the Sea, this is where you want to be. The house has a large open living and kitchen area with balconies on every floor. The master suite is a retreat of it’s own and I loved waking up to the sight of the beautiful emerald gulf waters. In the master I watched the sunrise every morning from the comfortable sitting room with a 360 degree view. How often do you get to do that? We thoroughly enjoyed the home theatre room. We got to watch the NFL conference championship on the 120 inch screen, which was awesome and we watched several movies in there as well….and it even has a movie theatre style popcorn machine! But my favorite part of the house is the extra large rooftop patio. You could literally have a party up there… it’s huge. There is also a small living room with a large screen tv, a wetbar and half bathroom on the rooftop so no need to go downstairs during your rooftop fun. If that’s not enough, there is also a hot tub big enough for several of your friends to join you in. I’m not much of a hot tub person but watching the sun set with a glass of wine in the hot tub was heavenly. I can’t see me & my family staying anywhere else. I had never used Five Star Beach Properties rental company before but they really are “guest friendly”. They seem to always make every effort to accommodate every requests from time of booking to check out. We will be back!!

Casa de Cielo!!!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to thank you and all of the employees at Five Star Beach Properties for your wonderful service. We stayed the last two times at Casa De Cielo which we loved. Also, Destiny By the Sea is such a great community. Before that we stayed at Sol Mate which is a very nice place. Five Star was always so personal , like visiting old friends. Service is excellent, even at Christmas time. We can not thank you enough for calling us one night when we were out eating and telling us our 2 little maltese dogs were outside. The guard found them and called you and you were wonderful to go out at night and put our two little guys back in the house. They are family to us and we are so very thankful to you. We can never repay you for that. We have told everyone here how we appreciate you.

Thanks again,

God Bless you all.

Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Destiny by the Sea was the most spectacular week of our lives. Our group of friends rented out Casa de Cielo for the first week of May and were not disappointed in the least. The weather was perfect (as it tends to be on the Emerald Coast) and the house was very clean and accommodating. The listing photos accurately depicted just how mind blowing this house is. Five Star was there to answer every question and meet every request. Highly recommend. Will Stay again.

Spectacular home right on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

This Gulf front home is absolutely beautiful. Waking up and not being able to look out onto those views is something my family and I miss now that our vacation is over. The day we got back home we started a countdown till our next stay at this home in Destin (348 days to go!). The private movie theater was a huge plus on the two nights that it rained during our stay. The private outdoor hot tub that overlooks the beach was also a huge plus to this home!
