Welcome to the 'Polka Dot Bikini'

This new home in the charming Villages of Crystal Beach has it all. It is elegantly furnished throughout with brand new upscale furniture, flat screen TV's and accessories. The community is very family friendly. It boasts an expansive 30,000 sq. ft. lagoon style walk in pool, which is the most beautiful pool area in all of Destin. Waterfalls, lush landscaping, a hot tub, surround sound system and a tiki bar are nestled in the beautifully landscaped pool area.

'Polka Dot Bikini' brings traditional Key West style and charm to the otherwise modern and entertaining life of Destin. This beautiful home is all you will need to make your vacation the one you'll never stop talking about!

'Polka Dot Bikini' is the first home on the south end of the Villages of Crystal Beach, which makes it the closest house in the Villages to the beach. It is across the street from ample additional parking and is next door to the volleyball recreational area. So whether you are getting away from the kids or bringing them with, you will enjoy the breathing room that the recreational area has to offer. Paradise on the white powdery sandy beaches with beautiful sunsets is just two short blocks away. And in case the two minute walk to the beach is too much, there is free trolley service to and from the beach during the peak season.

This lovely 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home was built in the fall of 2012 and it is complete with granite countertops, gorgeous furnishings, WIFI, and several flat screen TV's. On the first floor there is a master suite with a king bed and a walk in closet. A bath with double vanity, a walk in shower and a tub. Also on the first floor is the beautiful elegant living area with a 60' flat screen TV and DVD player, a powder room and a beautiful gourmet kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has a breakfast bar with 6 bar stools, granite counter tops, stainless appliances with everything you need to entertain your family and friends. The second floor has 3 bedrooms, one of which is a master suite with a bath and a walk in shower. The second bedroom has a king size bed with a flat screen TV and a walk out porch. The third bedroom has a bunk bed, twin over full with a twin pull out trundle. The second floor also has a loft area with a sofa sleeper, a flat screen TV and a walk out porch.

The polka dot is a perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

One of the most luxurious and well maintained houses I have stayed on vacation. The owner was so friendly and went out of her way. The location was right by the beach and had everything you can possibly need near by. We loved our stay here and will go back every year.

Destin Polka Dot

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the home do not so it justice. When we opened the door, we were amazed by how nice, clean, modern and maintained it was. It is the closest home to the beach which was a breeze to walk to, even with two 3yr olds on tow. The house has everything and the community pool is one of the best I have seen at any resort. I just hope I can get a week next year. My family wants to make this our yearly summer vacation spot. The location is actually within walking distance of many stores and shops. Almost too close to Bass Pro. I went every day.

Perfect Home - Great Location

  • 5 of 5


* Newer Home with all like-new finishing and appliances. Nothing is worn out or damaged!

* Decorated by someone with a good eye for function and taste - Very comfortable

* Only one close neighbor, home is at the entrance to gated community

* Home is about 3 blocks or 1/4 mile from public access to beach

* Home is close to everything you need (near 293 and Hwy 98)

* Community Pool is very large, within a two minute walk, gated, and really nice


* No outdoor grill during our stay, most homes had them (there is one at pool though)


Condos on the beach are great, but staying in a home like this is much better in our opinion and worth the short walk to the beach. This is an excellent home in perfect condition, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

"Polka Dot Bikini" is an excellent place to vacation. I travel to the panhandle of Florida for work two times a month and could not have found a letter location for my family's vacation needs any where else. The condo was beautiful, clean and the location is great. You are two blocks away from the beach, The Commons shopping center, Bass Pro Shop, Publix food store, a multi-plex iMax movie theater and for my son... 1 block away from his favorite eating spot... Waffle House. The whole complex is well run, clean and the pool is excellent. My family will stay there again.

Good times

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Polka Dot Bikini. It is beautifully decorated and well stocked. We had two families staying with a total of 10 people and we were all comfortable. It is a short walk to the beach, but as we are all fitness nuts we looked at it as extra calories burned!! A downside was this property is advertised as wheelchair accessible. For the most part it is, but the bed in the downstairs bedroom is a little high and there are no bars in the bathroom. But we made it work and all was well.

Vacationing in luxury....

  • 5 of 5

This owners description is right on with this luxury home in Destin! But in all honesty, this home actually exceeds its description the minute you walk in. From location, being the closest home in the Villages of Crystal Beach to the beach to its unbelievable design and decorating. This home had every ammenity that one could hope for. Every room and decorating aspect had the greatest attention to detail. We were fortunate to be the first renters of this wonderful new home and couldn't be more satisfied. We stayed at a home a just a few doors down last year and that home couldn't compare to this one. If you are looking for a place to call home for your next trip to Destin, "Polka Dot Bikini" is the place to rent. The communication between the owner was wonderful and our trip and our visit couldn't have gone any better, we can't wait to come back next year!!! Thanks for letting us stay at your wonderful home.

Villages of Crystal Beach is a gated community with a beautiful 30,000 sq. ft. lagoon style pool. The beach is just a short 5 minute walk or you can hop on the trolley that will take you to the white powdery beach. You can walk to Destin Commons Shopping Mall as well as many restaurants and pubs. Be sure to visit Baytown Warf in Sandestin and Harborwalk village. Children will love Big Kahuna water park. Silver Sands outlet mall is not to be missed.
