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 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 8 cars.

Perfect for Multiple Family Vacation
We just returned home from a stay at this lovely property. We were celebrating my in-laws’ 50th wedding anniversary and had a total of 15 people (9 adults and 6 children). The accommodations were perfect for multiple families. With 3 levels and each bedroom having its own bathroom, it gave us all enough of our own space. The walk to the beach is a very short distance and there are plenty of carts, toys and boogie boards there that we were able to use. As mentioned in previous reviews, the resorts on both sides of the public beach rope off the beach during the day. If you get there early, there isn’t a problem getting a spot. The ropes come down about 4 so we tended to go to the beach later in the day when there was more room and it wasn’t as crowded. We loved using the pool and outside area for BBQing and hanging out. We had an incredible time and would absolutely recommend and return to this house. Thank you, Gary and Susie, for having us at your beautiful beach house.
50th Anniversary Get Away
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home! Our 4 sons and their families joined us for the week; there were 20 of us and we never felt crowded! Our grandchildren spent endless hours in the beautiful, well-maintained pool; while other members spent enjoyed time at the beautiful beach which was about a block away. This vacation get-away could not have been more perfect --thanks for the awesome memories!
From the beginning of the process to the end, all details were handled smoothly, professionally. & promptly, but the best part was the house & all it offered & provided our family. This house was immaculate! Everyone was also impressed with the quality of the bedding & was able to rest well. The layout of the home gave everyone their own space & privacy. The decor & furnishimgs were first class. The kitchen set up with ample silverware, dishes, glassware, etc. We are a family that cooks & the only suggestion would be that a larger stockpot be purchased to make a bigger quantity of soup, creole, etc for feeding a large number people. The salt water pool was wonderful & thoroughly enjoyed. The special lighting was a special touch. For beachgoers, the location was perfect & the wagon & cart provided to maneuver beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. was very helpful. Also, the home is in walking/short driving distance for restaurants, groceries, activities, & shopping. Our family was uniting for first time in about five years & this house was perfect! Would definitely rent again. Thank you for sharing your fantastic home!
Paradise for sure super large spaces !
As stated in a few of my emails the pictures don't do it justice the place is absolutely amazing plenty of room for 16 people and we had a great time relaxing !!
Perfect Beach house for Large Groups
Our family absolutely loved our week in this beautiful home. The pool and porch area were perfect with lots of seating. The area gets sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon which was great after spending mornings on the beach. The public beach access was an easy walk. I just wish there was more public space as the condos on either side rope off their areas leaving little room to spread out. However, this did not keep us from enjoying the beach. The home is very spacious with room to spread out. We love that essentially every bedroom has it's own bathroom. This was the first large home we stayed in where there was plenty of seating at the kitchen table and bar. Definitely a plus. The kitchen had everything we needed. We had a Father's Day package delivered to the home and we couldn't get to the locked mailboxes. The owners and property manager were very helpful and responded to inquiries quickly. We would absolutely stay in this home again.
This house is beautiful, spacious and very clean. We loved the location and everything about this property. This was a family vacation and I can say that everyone was very happy with this house . We would definitely recommend it . We already have had several people ask us about it after seeing our photos.
Crystal Beach is the perfect vacation area. Walking distance to everything you need for a memorable vacation!
