The house is beyond beautiful. The beach is literally right up the street. Walking distance enjoyed every moment there with my family!!! It's worth the stay worth booking again!! The Prices family is amazing God bless you and your family for letting us check in early and for working with me on our stay. The stores and shopping areas are like 5 mins away everything you need is right up the street. Couldn't ask for a better stay. Felt more welcomed at home. Thank you again for the beautiful stay.

Very clean, comfortable and overall wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

This home was the best one I've stayed in every trip I've had in Destin. We came with nine people total and there was plenty of room for all of us plus alone time if we preferred. Everything is a close drive away and the beach was easy to walk to. I would recommend this lovely home to anyone! Thanks for giving us an enjoyable summer vacation!!!!

Great Location - Perfect For A Family

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location, we have stayed in this Crystal Shores subdivision before and it is in our opinion the best location in Destin to stay, close to everything. Community Pool, 15 minutes walk to the beach, 10 minute walk to shopping center. The house is very nicely maintained and perfect for families. The kitchen has lots of dishes, silverware, and glasses, we felt it was a little lite on cooking utensils, but this was not too much of an issue as most meals we eat out, or BBQ’d. The house has a wonderful Propane BBQ. We were surprised to not find some things we kind of though were rental basics in the kitchen like salt & pepper, and coffee filters, but that was our only letdown. Otherwise the place is great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. Is that a typo concerning the 15 minute walk to the beach? Surely you meant 5 minute walk to the beach? As far as the cooking utensils, we cook and prepare a lot of meals there when we stay and I really don't know what could be missing. If you had something in mind I would gladly provide it. Sorry about the salt and pepper, but that kind of stuff just tends to disappear. The coffee filters I am in the process of checking with my management company on that. I thought they provide those but am not sure. Anyway, thanks for the review. I think the time to walk to the beach is inaccurate and if you could change that I would appreciate that. People really take that to heart. That is the number one question that I get. "How far is it to the beach?" Thanks, Ray

Just a half block walk to the South and you are at the beautiful white-sand beaches of Destin. Less than a half mile to the North and you will find the Destin Commons, which is full of shops, groceries, theaters, restaurants, and more. A couple of miles East on Hwy. 98 and you will find plenty of outlet stores for great discount shopping.
