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 .

Great place for large families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Crystal Beach. One block from public beach access and a nice pool out front. Also a great location in Destin as well; it is only a couple minutes drive to the grocery store and anything else you may need. We had 4 families there with children and we had enough space for everyone to feel comfortable. We were able to be together without having to be too together -- which is definitely nice for groups with a range of personalities. Claire is very pleasant and easy to deal with and only a text message or phone call away for any issues that may arise. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a larger space while staying in Destin.

The property was just wonderful - had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The 4 cabanas on Crystal Beach was the perfect spot for our family of 17 including 3 toddlers under 2 and great grand parents and all ages in between. The pool was the gathering place for all while the cabanas provided a place for naps and privacy. Cabana 4 was the dinner place and everyone gathered each evening for dinner together. No balconies or steps. Everything was in order -the cabanas were decorated so lovely - the beach was a block away and soft sand and blue water - the whole family was in awe of the accommodations. Thanks to Claire, the owner, who provides for every need is to be commended for owning such a fine piece of property!! Phyllis Sells - great grandmother, Nashville, Tenneesse

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Crystal Beach owned by Claire Nuckles is the best place our whole family of 18 has ever stayed for a week and everyone is still talking about how much fun we had and what a great place we stayed. It's clean bright comfy and homey. Claire made a point of stopping by to say hello and provided some great info about the area. One of my daughters brought her little dog and that was OK with a minor up charge. The beach is only a short block away and beautiful. We were blessed with perfect weather, no rain and plenty of sun.

When we do this again in a couple or three years, we hope to be able to book with Claire.

Thanks again Claire,

Eddie Keigher

Nice place for a large family

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the cabanas. The cabanas were large enough for a family of 18 and only one block away from the beach. The kids really enjoyed the pool at the property. The property owner, Claire, answered all of our questions and took care of any concerns that we had during our stay!!

Great location, great property!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Crystal Beach Cabanas! The set up is perfect for large groups. Everyone has their privacy, but can also be together. The private pool is nice and had plenty of chairs to accommodate our family. The owner is very nice and was always available if we needed anything. We will definitely be back!
