About Reba and Jon Myer

Property just purchased in 2012 and updated and renovated. Great bedding, super size livingroom and master bedroom.

Reba and Jon Myer purchased this house in 2012

Why Reba and Jon Myer chose Crystal Beach

Just fell in love with the place and great for our growing family with our daughter being married this year and two adult boys. So close to the beach and everything else in Destin.

What makes this house unique

The private pool and beachview from the upper porch is just great for everyone who stays there,

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was the first time we have rented a house versus a hotel/condo. We were a bit nervous about what to expect. However, after our stay we will continue to use this beach house for years to come! The location was spectacular and was on more of a private part of the beach as compared to many other beach houses. The owners were amazing and responded to any questions we had immediately. They even had someone replace the pool light for us within one day. The house was clean, in a great location, and had everything we needed. We actually only went to the beach on a few occasions because we preferred staying at the house and lounging in the pool. The house was very spacious and we could have easily slept more than our 14 guest. You will not be disapointed in this house!!!

Incredible! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been staying a week or two a year at this house for the last 4 years, and each time we can't wait to come back! The last several trips we truly had "Crystal Clear" water and felt like we were at the Caribbean. The house itself has so many ammenities, and has been completely renovated! The mattresses are so great, I like them better than mine at home! You can't beat the beach access right across the street, and youre also walking distance to several great restaurants (Crab Trap and Camille's). Close to the outlets as well. Love to take strolls through the nearby neighborhoods and relax on the porch or in the pool. Beach chairs and umbrellas are also provided which is another plus! Can't recommend this beach house enough!

Owner's Response: We enjoy having you every year! Crystal Clear is a beautiful home located conveniently to lots of shopping, restaurants and much more. The owners do take pride in this unit and want their renters to be "at home" while they are here. Since Kokomo Kove is on such a quiet end of Scenic 98, it is a wonderful place to walk and explore the area. Thank you for the kind review and we will see you next year!

This was a great place to stay with our family. We had 5 adults and 6 kiddos, ages 5 months to 10.

Plenty of room. The heated pool was a hit since the March weather was somewhat chilly. Kitchen well equipped for feeding a crowd. Beach is right across the street! The loft was perfect for the oldest to sleep and play an ongoing game of “settlers” with his brothers. Porches are perfect for visiting or reading. Clean and up to date. (We did purchase a child safety gate for back door after seeing 3 year old open door. Pool is right there. )

We had a great time staying int his beautiful beach house. It is literally right across the street from the beach. They have beach chairs and boogie boards provided for you. Plenty of sleeping room and roof top view off the third floor. Great house for kids too. Thanks for sharing your beach house with us.

Perfect place for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay! A short walk across the street and we were at the beach! We enjoyed the beach chairs and cart at the house, as well as the bicycles. The highchair was very handy, as we had an 11 month old. The two 7 year olds loved swimming in the pool when tired of the beach. Plenty of space for all of us and we enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the early mornings and evenings. We will definitely be back!

Loved this home and its location on Crystal Beach! Beautifully decorated home with a great pool an close to the beach. We had a great time riding the bikes they provided and lounging at the beach with the chairs and umbrellas they provided. It was great not having to rent chairs, and they were the most comfortable portable ones I've ever used! This was our third stay at this house and the new wooden floors they added upstairs, enhanced the overall decor of the house. I love beginning each day relaxing in the rocking chairs on the peaceful front porch. I highly recommend this house and will be returning very soon!
