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 Crystal Beach

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!

Really awesome big home with lots of space and wonderful gated community

  • 5 of 5

The whole place was really great, we really enjoyed our time there as a pretty large group with 5 adults and 3 kids and we'd love to come back.

The walk to the beach was a little too far for us with 3 little children, but for adults it is great, and driving and parking was also very easy regardless. They also provided umbrellas, chairs and even some toys to borrow for our time at the beach--this was especially great since we didn't have to pack any of that in luggage. The pool is really awesome, just a 60 second walk from our front door. Hot tub and zero-entry made the whole setup great for adults and kids.

The house is really comfortable, lots of seating/lounging inside and on the balcony. The kitchen was well stocked and the appliances are nice and new.

The whole community is gated and we found it to be extremely safe and quiet, taking walks in the evenings with our toddler and young kids was very comfortable.

A few minor cons--we didn't find any grill at the pool, like in the photos, it's actually seasonal. We're used to sleeping with our AC fan on at home, so we found the rules restrictive for having to keep it on auto and at a certain frugal temperature range.

They are also easy to get in touch with, flexible, and very helpful/responsive to any issues or questions. Overall great experience! Definitely would stay again.

Overall the property is really nice and in a great location to the pool and beach.

  • 4 of 5

The property was plenty spacious for the 8 of us (4 adults & 4 children). The property could use some paint updates on the full bathroom, hallways and stairwell. The kitchen table could use a good cleaning in the cracks. Having the beach cart and beach accessories was amazing. Your place served as a great location for our first family vacation to Destin, Florida. We will return in the future. Thank you!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four met up with our friends, a family of five and had a wonderful time at Sea La Vie. Our children, ages 7 to 10 loved the bunk beds!! The house easily accommodated our two families. The pool was awesome and an easy walk. The beach was beautiful. We ended up driving our car, unloading our stuff and passengers and then driver would leave car back at house and walk to beach. Several days we went to the nearby state park that is right on the beach. We enjoyed that - less crowded! Location was close to many restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend!

Sea La Vie

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea La Vie! We had an issue with the one of the beds and the owner sent someone to fix it immediately and was replaced within less than 24 hours. Owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome and inviting. Look forward to staying again. The pool was awesome. The kids really enjoyed it. The beach we decided to drive each day instead of doing the trolley, but the trolley ran all during the day taking families to the beach. Thank you for your kind hospitality and allowing us to feel welcome in your beach home and making family memories

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!
