Villages of Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

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 owner

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!

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!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a girls weekend! Plenty of room for everyone and the beds were SO very comfortable. The neighborhood pool was gorgeous - very resort-like. Although the beach is within walking distance, we drove as we schlepped a lot of things with us. This neighborhood is perfectly located to nearby shopping and restaurants. Will definitely be back - with family or friends. Or both!

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying at eternal sunshine. This time it was for a girls getaway weekend for Mother's Day. There were eight of us. Plenty of room in the house for all of us to spread our stuff out! The house is a short distance to the beach and has an amazing pool area for those days that you don't feel like getting sandy. The house itself is beautiful, furniture is fantastic . I love the big high dining table that is perfect for game nights. :-)

Great house Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice. A 10 minute walk to the beach and a short distance from the Commons. The pool was also very nice but we were there for the beach so we did not spend time in the pool. I would gladly stay at this property again and hope to be a repeat customer in the future.
