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 .

Great place for multiple families/people who want some space.

  • 5 of 5

It was lovely to go on vacation with my siblings and their families and for each of us to have or own space. The homes were comfortable and clean and had all of the amenities and supplies you would want in the kitchen. I do wish there had been some beach towels to use by the pool and at the beach. We bought a few and left two behind. We also bought a bunch of pool supplies and left those behind.

Claire was lovely and immediately responded if there was an issue to address. Everything got addressed right away and our stay was fantastic! Great walk to the beach (in a not super crowded area of it), really close driving to all kinds of activities and restaurants, shopping and grocery stores. We loved it. Thanks Claire!

Perfect Multi-Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Cabanas at Crystal Beach were the perfect getaway for our group of four families. Each family had their own unit to retreat to when family togetherness became too much. Most of our multi-family time was spent in the private heated pool area even though the beach truly is steps away. The Cabanas are nicely decorated, clean and well equipped. Claire is a amazing host, attentive to our every need. We even walked to dinner most nights. Great stay!

The Cabana’s at Crystal Beach were a perfect fit for our family of 17 and a puppy!

  • 4 of 5

The Cabana’s at Crystal Beach were a perfect fit for our family of 17 and a small dog. We were there on a healing vacation 12/24-12/31/17. Each individual family had their own place to retreat to or to allow one another to visit at. There were 7 adults, 10 kids and 1 small puppy. Crystal Beach is only a block away and was beautiful beyond words. The area was surrounded by tons of attractions, shopping, restaurants etc. The owner, Claire Knuckles was very friendly, welcoming, accommodating and accessible if needed. Loved our stay!

Great place for multi family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 generations staying at the cabanas for thanksgiving and it worked great for us. Everyone had their own kitchen so cooking for a large group allowed everyone to cook a dish and then we gathered for dinner in our cabana which had a large table. Everyone was happy to have a private room at the end of the day to relax. Close walk to the beach - which was gorgeous!!! Everyone enjoyed the heated swimming pool and corn hole. The pool is fenced in which was a great safety feature for our 15 month old grandson. Claire was immediately responsive to anything we needed. A great place !!!
