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 Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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 .

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

I do not know where to start when writing this review. Everything was absolutely amazing! We had a big family take a trip to Destin for our first time and we didn't know what to expect but the cabanas exceeded our expectations and MORE! We loved having our own space but yet being able to spend time together during the day. The private pool was amazing and my nieces loved having their own space. We spend most of our time relaxing around the pool or laying in the pool on our big floaties. The cabanas themselves were SO SO clean, it was nice to have a kitchen in each unit and nice big living rooms to be able to relax at night after a long day at the pool or beach. The beach is one of the most beautiful beaches we have EVER seen and is only a two minute walk away. We rented a golf cart while we were in Destin and that was amazing because we took that around Destin to sight see. We also went parasailing, deep sea fishing and snorkeling. A few of us went golfing at some of the golf courses near and they loved them, said they were super nice. This is the most amazing property to stay at if you are looking for a big group to stay together, Claire was an AMAZING host and stopped by to meet us. I can't stay enough good things about this vacation rental. If you are looking to go to Destin and looking for a big place for a big group, this is your place! STAY HERE- YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

Thank you so much, Claire! We will be back, I promise!

Sincerely,

Katie K

Perfect for a large group! Beautiful and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families visiting together. Took our seniors and other children on a spring break trip! This property was the perfect setup for our group. Our teenagers loved having our own private pool. We grilled burgers one night and ate outside. We cooked breakfast each morning and all ate together in cabana #4, which had a very large table that seats 10+ people.

I don't think we could have found a better place to accommodate our group of 15. The entire property was very clean, inside and out. I always worry about this so I check for cleanliness first thing. It was immaculate and the decor was beautiful! It took us about 2-3 minutes to walk to the beach. It was very close and easy. Claire, the owner, stopped by to check on us and she was great!

I highly recommend Crystal Beach Cabanas!

Overall a very good vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our (big) family stayed at this property for our baby girl's first birthday. It was excellent for us because everyone had the privacy of their own little cabana/villa but at the same time we were all close together. The house was very clean and it did had all the amenities that it claimed to have. Perhaps a little low on the kitchen pots and pans, but then again our family loves to cook which requires a well stocked kitchen for it. Next time we will just ensure to bring more pots and pans with us from home. The weather may not have cooperated with us too much and we only had a day and a half of real sunshine to enjoy the beach, but at least the pool was big enough for all of us to swim in and play volleyball and other such games. I loved the closeness of the house to the beach and the fact that the entrance to the beach was right there in that street. Getting to any store was very easy as well. Claire was very courteous and even found time to come and meet us. Overall the experience was great! I definitely will recommend this property to anyone, especially a big family. :)

Labor Day Week at the Cabanas

  • 5 of 5

The Cabanas worked out perfectly for our group of 16!

Big dining room in #4, full kitchens in each, plenty of room to escape to yourself when needed. The pool was fun for both the little kids and the bigger ones too.

Literally a two minute walk down Tarpon Street to the beach. I would definitely recommend!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at Claire's cabanas and it was everything we thought it would be and more. The cabanas were super clean and only a three minute walk to the beach. It is also very close to restaurants, shopping, and sea excursions. Anything we needed Claire was there. Thank you Claire for a wonderful vacation. I highly recommend your cabanas and the pool was Devine!
