I thoroughly enjoyed this home! I came with 7 other ladies to spend a weekend hanging with the girls and we couldn't have picked a better place. The 3 levels give everyone their own private space, the view from the top floor balcony is awesome, the beach is very close and everything you need (grocery stores, shopping, restaurants) is within a few minutes drive. I will be back to this home!

Loved this place, even though we were there during the coldest week ever we still enjoyed the home! Having a heated pool was great for the kids.Love that it is so close to the beach. We had 12 adults and 4 children and had so much room to spread out. Thanks Gary and Susie for sharing your gorgeous home with us, we hope to get back someday!

More than expected

  • 5 of 5

This home was very clean and well decorated. It is a perfect home for large groups or 7 couples to stay. Every room had its own private bathroom, plus a second area for lounging and playing games. The home has a beautiful pool and is in walking distance to the beach. I will be renting this home again

Gary & Susie are fabulous to work with. They have amazingly thoughtful design, lay-outs, equipment, supplies, and amenities. The information is thorough and helpful. Linens and art are high-end. Smart TVs in every bedroom, with a very large screen in the living area. The dining table seated 10 plus an additional six people right next to it at the long kitchen counter with stools. Perfect! This was a quiet location for our large extended family with great parking, a great pool, and the beach very nearby. Gary & Susan provided lots of beach toys and equipment. Thank you! Restaurants and shopping are abundant. We are already planning our next trip and wouldn't think of staying elsewhere. Thank you so much!

House was beautifully decorated! Gary and Susie were very responsive and accommodating. House had plenty of seated dining and parking which was hard to find in a property that sleeps over 20 people.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We had 20 people stay at this property for a family wedding. We were very pleased with the whole property. The house was beautiful and very spacious. It was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and more from a fully stocked kitchen, bedding and even beach accessories. Gary and Susan were always available and property manager was very prompt if anything was needed. I would recommend this property for any vacation.

About Gary and Susie

We have enjoyed summer vacations in Destin for 30+ years creating a lifetime of memories with family and friends. By far it is our #1 vacation spot for so many reasons: beach, weather, outdoor activities, restaurants, and atmosphere. We are truly excited to provide this opportunity for others who want to enjoy the Destin experience in a brand new home, located in beautiful Crystal Beach. Come on down, we promise, you will love it!

Gary and Susie purchased this house in 2016

Why Gary and Susie chose Crystal Beach

After vacationing in Destin for 30+ years for family reunions and vacations, we built and furnished our home based on a combination of the many places we stayed. We wanted to incorporate the best qualities of a vacation house, understanding what was needed to accommodate large groups. We wanted to provide people with a first class home for their vacation

What makes this house unique

Our home provides bathrooms off each bedroom, living space on all 3 levels and a large saltwater pool area which becomes an extension of the downstairs living.

Our location is excellent, near many major attractions, restaurants and of course, the beach. You can shop and dine without fighting Destin traffic!

Our home provides parking for 7 cars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been going to Florida since I was two years old. That's more than 50 years ago. Destin is the place our family gets together every year for the best memories of our lives. With children and grandchildren there are 15 of us, and SunshineinDestin was the perfect place for us to stay. Best house we have ever rented. The kitchen and living room were spacious enough for all of us. There was enough quiet areas for babies to sleep. And the house was so well equipped with everything we needed. We hope to make this house our forever vacation spot. Thank you so much to our wonderful hosts who made the whole thing possible and who made it easy. We will see you next year.
