Sea La Vie is a play on the French expression “C’est la vie”. In English, “C’est la vie” translates to “Such is Life” or “That is just the way life is”. With the relaxing, soul-quieting atmosphere in Villages of Crystal Beach and in Destin, we found Sea La Vie to be the appropriate name for our house.

Sea La Vie is a new construction home in the gated community of Villages of Crystal Beach. The home has new, upscale furnishings throughout, and we’ve emphasized the little pleasures to ensure your vacation is as relaxing as possible.

Sea La Vie is located just a few steps from the huge lagoon pool and hot tub. You can enjoy lush landscaping all around and music playing all day. Sit and relax at the Tiki Hut Area with comfy seating and a large grilling area. You will also find a volley ball area near the south gate.

The white sands and emerald waters await you. Located just 2 blocks from the neighborhood, the beach is a short stroll away (we provide a cart for your beach items), or a free trolley ride seasonally (Memorial Day to Labor Day). The Sandy Express Trolley will take you from the neighborhood to the beach and bring you back too!

Villages of Crystal Beach is located right across the street from Destin Commons. You’ll find many shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and movie theaters a stone’s throw from the home. Also, there are numerous golf courses within 1-5 miles of here.




Living, Dining, & Kitchen:

The first floor has a very open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen boasting granite countertops and stainless appliances. You’ll find everything you need to create fabulous meals and entertain your friends and family. There is a large breakfast bar overlooking the casual, yet elegant dining area and very spacious living area. There is also a powder room located on the first floor.


Master Bedroom #1:

The Master Bedroom downstairs has a King bed and an on suite bath with double vanity, walk in shower and a soaking tub.



Hardwood steps with iron railings lead you to the second floor where you will find the second living area that leads to the quaint covered porch. Young and older ones can enjoy the XBOX 360 and large screen TV!


Master Bedroom #2:

The Master Bedroom upstairs also features a King bed and full bathroom.


Bedroom #3:

Bedroom #3 has a Queen bed and has access to the covered porch.


Bedroom #4:

Bedroom #4 has creatively constructed bunk beds with playful furnishings and can sleep 4 people.

A large bathroom with double sinks and a laundry area complete the second floor.


Free WiFi and extended cable with 5 flat screen TVs add to this five star property. In addition to the grilling area at the pool, this home offers a private gas grill and a cart for your beach items to take along to the beach. Come, stay, play, and make life long memories at Sea La Vie!

About Sadhana Bhade

We are Sadhana and Hemant. We live in Louisville, KY and we love to travel and see the world. It has been our dream to own a vacation home close to the sea, and last year we decided to make that happen.

Sadhana Bhade purchased this house in 2013

Why Sadhana Bhade chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

While traveling to Destin, we fell in love with the sugar-white sands and the calm, emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We think the atmosphere and environment of this location quietens the soul and leads to a greater joy of spending time with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Sea La Vie is located a stone's throw from the beach and Destin Commons. Shops, restaurants, and golf courses abound, and they are just a few minutes away. The huge community lagoon pool is just a few seconds away! The trolley ride to the beach in Summer is just the cherry on top!

Best Family Vacation EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were not sure what to expect since we had never rented a vacation home. I had asked way too many questions of the owner before our trip but she replied immediately every time I wrote her. When we arrived the house was exactly like the pictures. It was fully stocked with everything we needed. Our 3 adult children, spouses, and 2 yr old grandbaby all slept comfortably in the 3 bedrooms upstairs. Each had their own room. Their was also a loft and Balcony so while they were hanging out upstairs we had some privacy downstairs in our Master bedroom. The location was perfect. Friends had told us to stay up the coast and not directly in Destin but we are glad we didn't listen.We were so close to everything. Even walking distance to grocery stores, shopping, and restaurants. The beach was 2 blocks away. The first day we took the Trolley and then realized the walk was just as easy. The gated community and pool area were a huge plus too. The pool made us feel like we were at a resort. The whole feel of the enclosed neighborhood felt like you were at a home but also felt like you were on vacation. Highly recommend and would definitely go back.

We loved this house! More amenities than usual in the kitchen, having the beach chairs/umbrellas was an added bonus also! Very nice property in a great shopping area close to beach.

Great place!... Fantastic pool and just steps away from the home. In a really good location and close to many nice shops and restaurants. Most of all close to a wonderful beach.

Great location and set up for families

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Sea La Vie over spring break. The weather did not cooperate very well (cold and some rain) but we enjoyed the area very much. The house was just as described. The kitchen was well stocked and washer/dryer very handy! The walk to the beach was very easy-even with 6 kids (ages 5-12). Was surprised at the number of college spring break groups in the area, but otherwise had a great trip! Thank you.

Great location in Destin. Just one block away from shopping, movies and restaurants. Enjoy golf, water sports, beach and more! Tons of stuff to do in Destin for people of any age! Destin Commons has World class shopping, restaurants and Rave movies, just across Hwy 98. Beach is only 2 blocks away. Several golf courses within 1-3 miles. Silver Sands outlet mall is not to be missed and be sure to visit the quaint area of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin for tons of fun for kids and the adults!
