About Katie Atwater

As an owner in Crystal beach since 2004, I personally manage 'Sand Dollar' in order to provide customized service to my guests. I own a Real Estate company specializing in luxury residences, second homes & investment properties. Living nearby enables me to be available to my guests and to keep this home meticulously maintained.

Katie Atwater purchased this house in 2004

Why Katie Atwater chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

I fell in love with the charming streets lined with white picket fences. The height restriction on beachfront properties makes the beach area less crowded. Easy walk to playground, book store, coffee shop, Restaurants and ice cream shops.

What makes this house unique

The fenced backyard is perfect for taking an afternoon nap on the built in Hammock or grilling dinner by the pool. The private pool is one of the larger pools in the area ranging from 3-5 feet deep and can be heated.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had one of the greatest times of our lives here at the Sand Dollar! The house is absolutely gorgeous! We were out by the pool so much. It was always warm and so perfect for everyone of all ages. The beach was also a blast. We also went to the outlet malls and to the go-karts. The shower outside was very helpful after we came back from the beach. The kitchen is so great and so big! We loved all the decorating.

Great experience!

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved our vacation at The Sand Dollar. The home was lovely and the pool was wonderful. Katie was very outgoing and attentive to our needs. Our only disappointment was the beach was farther than we expected.

AWESOME!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at multiple houses in the gulf area - from Alys to St. George. For many reasons Sand Dollar stands out on top. Exceptional in so many ways. Clean, impeccable condition, excellent location. So many amenities, including treats for our dogs when we arrived.

And the service level from Katie and Mike - truly outstanding. By way of example, we let our pups out around 10 one evening and noticed the pool water level had fallen. Texted Katie to give her the heads up. An hour later (close to midnight), looked out the window - Mike had arrived and made repairs.

Talk about customer service!

Many beach houses show wear and tear, deferred maintenance , need of some repair, etc. Not the case here. The house is obviously maintained with tender, loving care.

If you're looking for comfort, first class accommodations, full amenities, good beach access, excellent location, on a private street away from the typical hustle but still very proximate to beach, shopping, restaurants...........and offered by owners who CARE..........Sand Dollar scores on all metrics!

Can't go wrong here......just don't book it for when we plan to return!

All I can say is WOW!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! This house was perfect for my family. It was a few doors away from the beach/ocean and had coolers, carts, umbrellas, anything you needed to enjoy the beach. There were plenty of dishes for a big crowd, all kinds of appliances in the kitchen, a big table to seat all of your guests, a pool, the list goes on and on. The rooms were very spacious as well, I was shocked at the size!

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone I know. We had guests over, and everyone raved about it. I will be back :)

FTOG Family of the Groom. We highly recommend this property, it was like being home away from home. Fully supplied, comfortable, clean, convenient location to main highway, quiet neighborhood, close to beach. After a long day of travel a beautiful gift basket of snacks and drinks was sooooo much appreciated. We will be back.

AH-MAZ-ING Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have a rather large family which makes it difficult to find a home that doesn't offer more bunk beds than traditional beds to sleep in. Sand Dollar was the PERFECT home for us because it offered traditional sleeping along with a pool house for additional guests. The home comes completely stocked with all of the kitchen and entertaining equipment you need, not to mention all of the games, pool toys and beach equipment. Our family of 11 enjoyed the week in this beautiful, upscale beach house which is a short walk to the beach. I highly recommend this location! The owner was incredible to work with and super responsive to all of our questions.

Beautiful house with lots of amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Sand Dollar. This was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed. The kitchen was huge and had everything you could imagine available. Beach towels, beach umbrellas, bicycles, beach tools, etc all came with the house. We were amazed how close we were to the water. I can't say enough about this house. We hope to stay there again for years to come.
