Why Angela Moody chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We fell in love with this area of Florida on our first visit. Originally from Michigan and Chicago we were used to vacationing in southern Florida and once we moved to Franklin, Tennessee all our friends and neighbors raved about Destin so we had to check it out! WOW, we were blown away by the white sand beaches and warm emerald waters of the gulf. We found Crystal Beach to be so very charming and convenient! When this property came up for sale we had to have it! It was a little rough but we knew with some vision and TLC this home had everything we needed for our beach vacations! Of course the gunite pool was what sealed the deal! LOVE THE POOL!

What makes this house unique

Only a few steps to the Barracuda Street beach access. Private 18x30 heated gunite pool, largest pool in the entire crystal beach area. Newly renovated and updated! New beds, linens, towels, furniture and 4 flat screen TV's! 50' TV in the living room with cable and Blue Ray DVD player, Wii system and WIFI included!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time in Destin at the Sandpiper. It was so new and clean! The main challenge was getting the kids to leave the huge pool and backyard. We loved grilling out on the back deck, it is very private with a tall privacy fence surrounding the yard and pool. The ocean is just across the street and the home is close to any restaurant you could think of. We highly recommend for a family vacation.

Perfect Home at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our annual girls trip! We had 6 ladies staying for 5 nights and the home was so accommodating for our group. Everyone had a cozy bed with sleeping options to spare. The mattresses and linens were super comfy and I did not miss a wink. The best feature is the short walk to the beautiful beach with two public access points to choose from. Followed closely by the heated pool that we loved to lounge in after a hot day at the beach before we got ready for our evening plans. Endless things to do in the area including dining and shopping for all tastes and types of groups. Lots of towels and beach gear provided! I really miss starting my mornings with coffee out by the pool! Wish we could've stayed longer. Will definitely keep this on the list to return with family.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

As everyone says, it was a great location. The only problem we had was getting a spot on the beach because a lot of the condos had their own spots but it wasn't like we couldn't find a spot. The house was beautiful and had enough space for us. Thankfully Angela was really helpful every time and even went to the house after we left because we had left an iPad there >_< thanks so much! We can't wait to return to Destin, it was perfect for our first family vacation together.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our girls get away! Super short walk to the beach, yummy restaurant/coffee shop and a quick ride to publix or whole foods. Cute neighborhood and AMAZING pool. Enjoyed the ocean and dips in the pool before dinner. And, the beds were all super comfy with nice linens. Highly recommend for a relaxing get away with families or friends!

Almost but not quite

  • 3 of 5

Although this property was a good proximity to the beach it comes stocked with NOTHING. We have rented several places in Destin and they have all come with extra paper goods and such.

Several of the glasses in the cabinet had lipstick imprints on them. We ran out of toilet paper the 2nd day. I contacted the manager and she said they don't "stock" it.

The ONLY thing they had was salt and pepper. We had to buy our own toilet paper and paper towels. They didn't even provide extra trash bags!!! There was no lighter to light the grill (once I contacted the manager she brought one over). Halfway thru grilling dinner, the propane tank ran out and we had to go get it filled.

We are on vacation it seems like a lot of "work" having to provide the necessary things for the house.

Although the house is nice and the pool is great, we would not rent this again due to the things mentioned above.

Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Destin, and I have to say that I was very impressed with this home! First of all, the management of this property is very organized and efficient. We had the code to the home prior to arriving, which made our arrival very easy (did not have to worry about being there at any certain time). The home was clean, spacious, and homey. It was perfect for our group (6 adults, 5 kids). Everyone had their own space with plenty of room for all of our stuff (we had 3 kids ages 3 and under). The closets were huge, big enough that we even put the littles' pack in plays in there so they had their own sleeping room. I like that they kept the décor minimal as we had small children who have a habit of getting into everything. There were hooks everywhere for towels, wet clothes, keys, or whatever else you need. I know this is a small detail, but I appreciated not having everything all over the floor.

The kitchen is very nice, and we loved that it was so open to the living area. The kitchen is pretty much stocked with whatever you need.... we particularly liked the large griddle (and will be purchasing one of our own soon). Again, a small detail, but it made our stay (and breakfast) that much more enjoyable.

The pool is absolutely fabulous!! It is large and heated, which was a plus since we had 70 degree and under weather with rain. The kids did not care, they still used the pool. The outside patio is also wonderful... plenty of room for a BBQ and hanging out by the pool.

We all loved the front porch and spent lots of time just hanging out and relaxing there.

The neighborhood is lovely, and the house is just one block from the beach. You seriously can not find a better located in Destin! Perfect!! There is also a wonderful little local coffee shop just two blocks down and across from the beach. We made several trips there for their coconut lattes.... so yummy!

Thank you to the owners for a wonderful vacation! We definitely recommend this vacation home and would love to go back!!

Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Sandpipers Dream is the perfect vacation home.

We had 6 adults and a baby and had plenty of space.

The house was completely updated and the pool was large and warm.

Very short walk to the beach and short drive to stores.

We rented bikes and rode every morning.
