Overview

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Panoramic Balcony View, Pool, Wifi, & Steps From The Beach

Our Aqua Vista home has 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 baths included in this magnificent 4,000 sq-ft Destin Vacation home, with breathtaking views of the Gulf, Bay and Lakes. This home features 3 decks, travertine marble flooring, granite counter-tops, built-in Entertainment Center (46” HDTV), 12” crown molding and a finished two-car garage, giving you the true feeling of quality but in a family friendly environment. The large open living area, open to the kitchen and dining area, is perfect for multi-generation family gatherings following a day at the beach, which is only steps away. This 5 bedroom vacation getaway has the same spaciousness of many six bedroom beach homes, so there is plenty of space for everyone. There are five bedrooms with an adjacent sleeping area connected to the master bedroom that sleeps an additional four people. This 5 bedroom house sleeps up to 20 people comfortably.

Spend the day relaxing on the beach, with the private gated access, or at the community pool just 20 steps away, or take advantage of the other exclusive community amenities such as sand volleyball, tennis or the club house. Sunrise and sunset lovers can take in the magnificent 360-degree view from the spacious fourth level martini deck for hours of entertainment

We own and personally manage this house ourselves. We love the layout and design of the house and its surrounding area. Terra Cotta is a family friendly neighborhood and is close to the Big Kahuna’s Water Park, golf, Destin's Boardwalk, shopping centers/outlets and within walking distance to many fine restaurants.

You will be dealing directly with US, the owner, and not a property management company. You definitely won’t get better customer service anywhere!

Guestbook comments from the owner

2013 was our second year to stay at Aqua Vista, and it won't be our last. You can really, REALLY sleep lots of people in this vacation home, without using a futon or sleeper sofa. We slept 11 very comfortably. With 3 & 1/2 baths, we still were not climbing all over each other.



The home has recent updates (carpet, furniture coverings, minor maintenance). Zero trouble with the drains. Water heater failed, BUT was fixed in a few hours. Main level is very open, including a kitchen that 3-4 can hang & work in. And the kitchen, baths and beds were all very clean when we arrived.



Beach access is a "true" 2 minute walk. At the shoreline, head West for 400 feet to have YOUR OWN (public) beach nestled between two private beaches. No congestion. Enjoy your Destin beach vacation!

This house was clean, spacious, and nice. It accommodated our large 4 family group without problem. Community pool is right across street, and the beach was only a short walk away. We could even see the fireworks from the rooftop patio. I especially liked that it had two dining tables, two fridges, as well as two laundry areas, and the grill was very useful. I'd recommend it to any large group vacationing in Destin.

It was exactly what our family wanted

  • 4 of 5

The property was located perfectly with fairly easy access to the beach. The owner was extremely attentive to us when issues arose and corrected them immediately even though the issues did not have an impact to our vacation. The rooftop was a great place for the adults at the end of each day to relax and converse. For us, having 4 grandchildren and 6 adults the house layout was great and allowed the kids (ages 2 - 6) to run around and have fun without worry. I would definitely recommend this home.

Great Space for a large family or group

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at this property. We traveled to Destin for a wedding and the majority of the wedding party stayed in the house. Everyone had a comfortable sleeping arrangement and the house overall is in great shape with a large kitchen and living area perfect for gathering and socializing. Close proximity to the beach and pool and a wonderful rooftop patio with views of the Gulf were a huge plus as well. This house was exactly what our group needed.

One small complaint, the fridges do not keep things very cold but that was the only complaint and that can be overcome by buying extra ice. The blender was also not working when we got there, but Anthony was able to bring a replacement over the next day so the excellent service complements the excellent property.

Overall, I would recommend this property to any large group looking to stay in the Destin area.

wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We rented it for a girl scout troop outing and it had plenty of room for 10 scouts and 5 moms. The girls were able to be together on the bottom floor and the moms on the top. Each night they would play beach volleyball on the court directly in front of this house, it was so much fun! Plus the pool is right there as well, perfect location. The beach is also very close, a short walk from the home. We loved our stay in Destin!
