About the property

4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath (sleeps 11)

Paraiso (means paradise) is just steps away from the sugar white sand beaches and gorgeous emerald waters of Destin, Florida. We are located within the gated community of Villages of Crystal Beach subdivision, a tropical, family-oriented community of upscale homes, situated 2 blocks from the Gulf of Mexico. Walk the 500 yards to the beach, or hop on the free, seasonal trolley (spring break, Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day Weekend). We are also located across from Destin Commons, which features over 100 shops and restaurants, movie theater and pop-up water fountains - always popular with the kids.

The pool and spa area is unbelievable, something you'd find in a world class resort. The lagoon style pool is 30,000 square feet of gorgeous, sparkling clean water, with a walk-in area, three waterfalls, spa and lavish landscaping, and plenty of sitting areas for your group to enjoy. It also has surround sound, a flat screen TV, and a Tiki Bar to help you relax and get in the beach groove.

House is completely appointed with everything you'll need while renting! It is nicely furnished and beautifully decorated with all new mattresses, beds, bedding and furniture. Downstairs has bamboo flooring and kitchen and bathrooms all have granite countertops and nice cabinetry.

You will enjoy the two master suites available, the one on the first floor has a double vanity, Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The second master is on the second floor, with its own bathroom and shower. The two masters allow for two families to stay comfortably. The two master bedrooms each have king sized beds, their own TV, and walk in closets, one guest room has a queen bed, and access to the covered balcony,and the 4th bedroom has one bunk bed (twin over twin) and a twin size day bed. The 4th bedroom also has its own 32inch LCD TV and DVD player. You will enjoy pillow top mattresses on every bed.

Living room has a brand new 55inch smart LCD TV w/ Cable TV, Netflix, Playstation 3, wireless internet, and a queen sofa sleeper with a BRAND NEW MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS. Dining room seats 8-10 with 2 bar stools and fully stocked kitchen. Additionally, there is a loft area on the second floor where you will find the second living area that leads to the covered balcony. Young and older ones can enjoy 52 inch LCD TV, blueray player and board games. This home has a full size washer and dryer on the second floor.

Our home also has it's own grill right outside on our covered patio, for your grilling pleasure.

Reservations must be made by an adult over the age of 25 with a valid credit card and this adult must be staying in the property. This is a strictly smoke free and pet free home.

Come, Stay, Play, and make this your unforgettable vacation experience in this small piece of paradise, Paraiso Beach Home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome time! The place was great and the neighbors were very courteous. We will definitely recommend this place to others. The only problem was that the ice maker wasn't keeping with us!!

Great!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great.. very cozy and comfortable. Carpets may need some changing or deep cleaning. We had some issues with the TV/cable connection. The community pool is amazing and the trolley service to the beach is convenient, especially if you have little kids! We very much enjoyed our stay!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are in the process of changing the carpets upstairs into new hard flooring and have paid Lowes early August to do the installation. Unfortunately its taking them a while to get all the materials together and still waiting on it. It should be done before end of September. I hope you visit us again to see our new flooring upstairs.

Great vacation location with family and friends

  • 4 of 5

Overall great property. We had a few issues with ants and roaches. The biggest frustration was the basic cable and difficulty even using Netflix. We don't watch much tv on vacation, but would have liked to relax & watch some when it was raining. We loved the community pool. It was nice being on the "quite" side of the island. House for our 2 families of 4 perfectly.

Destin Beach is wonderful

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in our recent vacation. The owner was extremely responsive when the AC went out, within an hour we had cool air again; and to add to that it was the 4th of July. We found the kitchen adequately stocked with cooking utensils, plates, cups, etc. Thanks. A couple items could be improved: the carpeting is fairly soiled, the tv service borders on ridiculous as it goes out and reboots continuously, the WiFi is unable to view movies, we found a shortage of towels and wash cloths with 11 in our party. There are a couple items that need updated on VRBO website: the WiFi password is inaccurate and the instructions for exiting the linen information is incorrect. All in all it was a great week.

Pool was amazing and community well marinated!

  • 5 of 5

Located in a great part of town, close to everything you need. House could be furnished with more dishes and the basics since we cooked and grilled a lot of meals but at least we were close to the grocery. Overall a perfect vacation!

Good location!

  • 4 of 5

We recently returned from staying at the Paraiso House in the Villages of Crystal Beach. My family of 9 had a wonderful trip with no major bumps in the road. Check-in was easy, the complex gate code and house code worked perfectly. The house is no longer cream color as pictured, so look for a blue house. But gps will take you right to it. The inside is surfaced cleaned. The carpets are in desperate need of a professional cleaning, but I know it's difficult to keep carpets in rental properties clean. The kitchen provides basic utensils, but be careful with the knives as they are in need of a good sharpening. Cutting a watermelon is difficult! We had 9 people (3 of which are children) that all slept comfortably in the house. Everyone had their own bed. The kids shared a room. The amount of space was good although it was a tight squeeze to fit everyone at the dinner table. The kitchen is a small galley kitchen. The beach is about a half mile away with a direct walk down 1 street. The trolley service is great! They pick you up from your house. The pool is nice and easy for kids. The tiki hut is nothing to get excited about. It's basically just a free standing bar to perch on if you have a large group hanging out. The fact that it's covered and allows a break from the sun is the best part. I found this rental to be good for what it cost. I would recommend it again.
