About Claire Nuckles

I moved to Destin in 2008 after vacationing here and falling in love with the area. I have owned rental property in another state since 1995. I sold those properties this past summer and bought Crystal Beach Cabanas before I closed on the sale of my other properties. Therefore, I have many years of experience in the business and know how to take care of my guest and property. I personally manage the Cabanas in order to provide customized service to my guest. Living nearby enables me to be available to my guest and to keep the Cabanas meticulously maintained.

Claire Nuckles purchased this house in 2013

Why Claire Nuckles chose Crystal Beach

Location, location, location Crystal Beach community is the best beach area in Destin. Crystal Beach is a lower density area in Destin. No high-rise condos. It feels more like a quaint neighbor hood with it's white picket fences and sidewalks rather than a loud,busy resort area. The Cabanas are a 1 minute walk to the beach. There are 2 public beach accesses. Take a short stroll down the beach to the Crabtrap restaurant for a cold drink or appetizers at the beach bar.Camille's is just around the corner a 5 minute walk and is a perfect outdoor place to get your morning coffee or smoothie. Evening dinner upstairs inside or out on the patio with fresh seafood or sushi.

What makes this house unique

This is why I bought the property. I loved the unique concept of 4 individual Cabanas with their own kitchen, living area, bedrooms, and bathroom with a washer and dryer. You can enjoy your family and friends but then retreat to your own Cabana for your privacy. Everyone has their own place to enjoy however they choose to .

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families with people of all ages and truly enjoyed the ability to stay together but have our own space too. We loved being so close to the beach and the kids loved all the extra toys to take to the beach with us. It really felt like home and Claire was so wonderful! Happy to have already booked for next year. The only down side I saw to the entire trip is the wifi was not very good and with small kids and an online business I would have preferred to have something a little better. But, definitely not going to stop us from coming back in a year!

Really enjoyed our Stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the cabanas they were neat & clean. The pool was wonderful for us to gather together and in Cabana 4 we all sat down for dinner a couple of nights. Loved the big table and chairs enough for all 12 of us. The beach was only a block away that is where we spent a lot of our time while in Destin. We all loved the decor and hope to return next year. Thanks Claire for sharing your property with us. Julie Mahler

Loved this property"

  • 5 of 5

This fit my family of 10 adults and 2 children (ages 2 1/2 and 5) perfectly. The private pool was awesome and only about a block to the beach. Beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys on-site were a definite plus. The 4 different cabanas were great, we could choose to spend time together or just relax on our own. The owner was so gracious. If the opportunity arises, we would definitely go back!

Cabanas and Crystal Beach

  • 5 of 5

The cabanas at Crystal Beach were the perfect accommodations for our 4 families! The space was just what we needed and allowed everyone to be together at one location but have the privacy of our own individual units! The location is perfect just one block from the beach and having the pool to enjoy as well was great! There was ample seating around the pool to gather to eat and hang out and swim. Claire was wonderful and responded promptly to get the grill up and running when we realized it was in need of propane and some TLC to get it cleaned up so we could have a BBQ. The Crystal Beach neighborhood is quiet and easily accessible to everything!! We have been vacationing in Destin for 20 years and this is certainly at the top of our list of favorite places to stay! We look forward to booking here again!

Wonderful Beach Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Second year we stayed in this location. Property is wonderful for kids and adults - has private swimming pool and is easy walking distance of the beach.

Claire was a great host - helped us in many ways and showed true interest in our satisfaction.

Would recommend this property to any and everyone.
