About Kimbie Noble

We've both grownup on along the beach. West Coast for me and North East Coast for my husband, but nothing compares to the world famous sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters of Destin. Friends introduced our family to Destin in 2005 and we fell in love, hoping to one day own a beach house that we could share with family, old friends, and new friends. From our family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and make lasting memories to cherish.

Kimbie Noble purchased this house in 2011

Why Kimbie Noble chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Crystal Shores at Crystal Beach is a pristine neighborhood with a sense of quiet community. You'll see neighbors riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and waving hello from behind their white picket fences. Just 1 block from the beach and 2-3 blocks from all the action of shops, gaming, and restaurants.

Our whole family had a great time staying at this beach house! It was close to the beach, clean, and had a lot of fun things that came with the house. We loved the bikes!

Fantastic location for relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Home was nicer & more comfortable than expected. Very laid back week. Location a block from the beach was awesome!! Splashed in the warm Gulf waters until sunset every evening. Made many of our meals in well set up kitchen. Beds & bathrooms very comfy. After just one day, we decided we wanted to come back again!!

Such a Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay! This beautiful home is even better than the photos. Very clean and well kept. We enjoyed the front porch each morning and loved being only a block from the beach. You can even see the beach from the top balcony! We enjoyed the grill and the fully stocked kitchen. The full washer and dryer was great too. The kids especially enjoyed the captain's room up top.The location was so convenient and I would recommend it for any family looking to enjoy some time in Destin. Kimbie was wonderful to work with and we hope to book another trip in the future.

Great week in Destin

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and the house was great. Well stocked w fun toys like bikes, wagons to haul stuff to the beach, and sand toys. Also games and puzzles were well used. Only things I would suggest would be have cleaning company check propane bottles when they clean. We planned burgers and hot dogs the first evening and had 6 hungry kids when we realized both bottles were empty. Had to locate a propane exchange to cook. Also there were only two dish towels to be found in the house. Couple of things I would recommend. Some larger colored beach towels for taking to the beach and pool. Hated to take the white ones to the beach. Also it would be nice to have an Amazon Fire Stick on main TV to watch Netflix or any of the movie downloads. I would have brought one if I had known. Fairly inexpensive and no cost to you to have movies on Netflix, Amazon or Hulu. Just a great house and a great location. We plan to return! Thanks! Charlie Brewer

Spring break heaven

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as shown in pictures and in description. I couldn't have handpicked a better house if I'd tried. So well stocked, decorated and maintained. My family will definitely be back. Kimbie is so easy to work with and a joy to do business with.

Car: recommended

Crystal Shores at Crystal Beach is a pristine neighborhood with a sense of quiet beachside community. You'll see neighbors riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and waving hello from behind their white picket fences. Crystal Beach is one of the most desirable areas due to the close proximity to the beach and activites/shops. Just one block from the beach! Within walking distance there is all the action of shops, gaming, and restaurants. A few blocks from the renowned Henderson Park Inn which sits on a National Preserve, great place for a cocktail or dinner. A huge outdoor mall, the Destin Commons, is just a three block bike ride. Familiar restaurants and big retail stores are within a two block walk. Crystal Beach is one of the Northwest Florida's most sought after vacation communities.

Other Activities: Parasailing, shopping, boating, and mini golf, race track, water park.
