About the property

4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8-10), walk to beach

Beautiful 4 bedroom house in the Villages of Crystal Beach sleeps 10!

Great location in the heart of Crystal Beach; only blocks from beach in gated community. The community includes a 30,000 square foot lagoon pool with hot tub, tiki bar, and grilling area! Most amazing pool and entertainment center in all of Crystal Beach.

Community also offers trolley service to and from beach in peak season. Villages of Crystal beach is one of the only communities in the area that offers this trolley service.

There are wonderful shops and restaurants close by (Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlets; and Whole Foods opening across the street) and great attractions such as golf courses, Big Kahuna waterpark, boating, fishing, and watersports.

House is completely appointed with everything you'll need while renting! It is nicely furnished and beautifully decorated (new beds added including gel mattress and leather living room furniture and new washer dryer). Downstairs has travertine floors and kitchen and bathrooms all have granite countertops and nice cabinetry. You can grill at home and relax on the balcony with a drink!

About Rebecca Callaway, Manager

Our family lives in Birmingham, Alabama but grew up in the Destin, Florida area so the area feels like our 2nd home (and one we'll hopefully retire to). We love Destin and if you need more information about the area (things to do, restaurants, etc., we are happy to help).

Rebecca Callaway, Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Rebecca Callaway, Manager chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Eternal Sunshine is beautifully furnished and decorated and appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We typically rent weekly but have rented for 3 month winter stretches to snowbirds and military - anyone who wants a long-term winter rental. The families that stayed with us in winter said they were very comfortable living there for 3 months. The Villages has a huge walk-in pool with hot tub and tiki bar and is close to the beach and shopping. It's our paradise and home away from home.

What makes this house unique

A trolley service during peak season that will take you to and from the beach! Gated community with onsite security. Trash pick up every day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had 5 people stay for a short weekend and we were so pleased! Not only is the house beautiful, spacious, and well maintained, but the neighborhood is as well. We cooked both nights and used the kitchen and enjoyed the beautiful pool as well. There was way more room than we could have needed and would rent again with a party double our size! Love the Destin area and will definitely return for more visits!

Middle-aged girlfriend trip was a blast. Could walk to pool or short drive to beach. Cozy but not crowded for 10 of us. Quick response from landlord for questions, from booking to leaving. Would def rent again.

Excellent, was everything we needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo. Perfectly located for ease of shopping, dining, beaches and Florida activities. Enjoyable community pool or beach only a few blocks away. Wonderfully stocked cookery in modern kitchen, we used to prepare home cooked group meals. King master room w private path, 2 rooms with full beds and a room with 2 twins. Upstairs and downstairs sitting areas for fun groups activities. Loved balcony to sit and visit or read while enjoying outside fresh air. Supplied "welcome necessity basket" providing often forgotten necessities that saved trip to store. Highly Recommend to multi family group. Owner/operator joy to work with. Will use again when family returns.

Clean and Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

I am thrilled that we stayed here for our long weekend. The location was perfect - walking distance to the beach, close to the mall, and a 10 minute drive to outlets. The house itself was amazing! It was clean, kept very well and had everything that we needed. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a getaway.

Great place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Rebecca was so helpful in answering all of my questions before booking- I was concerned about the house actually holding a group as large as us, but we managed easily.

We had a group of 10 women staying at the house for a girls weekend. The location of the house is so ideal. It is about a 7 minute walk to the beach, or if you have too much stuff, you can call the shuttle service (so long as it's running.) It was in this safe gated community that felt very homey. We ended up making friends with the surrounding houses and it was so fun.

The pool was beautiful, the beach is obviously why we were there though!

You really couldn't ask for a better place to stay. We come to Destin quite a bit, and this place is by far one of my favorites. Most times I don't need that much space, but if you have a big group, I would highly recommend staying at Crystal Beach.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a wonderful location. Centrally located, while still having privacy. Spacious, nicely decorated, well-maintained and amazing pool. Great spot in Destin that's close enough to beach, shopping and restaurants; while still having a quiet, secluded oasis.

Amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Eternal Sunshine was a perfect get away! Beautiful house that was so convenient to everything we wanted and needed to do! The kitchen was fully stocked with every thing we needed! The furniture and bedding made us feel like we were at home. We spent our days on the beach and evenings at the pool. We loved sitting around the table each night playing games! Eternal Sunshine provided us with a quiet, beautiful paradise to make amazing memories!
