About Jimbo Tate - Owner

Family of 4 from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We love to get away to THE House in Destin when ever we get a chance!

Jimbo Tate - Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why Jimbo Tate - Owner chose Crystal Beach

We fell in love with the most beautiful beach in the world. The water is a deep emerald green. The sands are powdery white that glissen in the sunlight. And such spectacular sunsets. Nothing beats Destin, Florida.

What makes this house unique

Family Tides is really close to anyting you want to do or any where you need to go in Destin.

Perfect Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We looked at many houses but are now convinced we made the perfect choice in this home. The house is modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. Great view of the gulf and just a few blocks from the awesome beach. The pool and patio area is set up nicely and can accommodate a large group of people. The pool catches some mid afternoon shade which allowed us to swim while nursing sunburns. (Apply sunscreen heavy and often when at the beach) Our teenagers loved the 3rd floor which is set up like a mini apartment. If our future travels take us to Destin we won't have to search for a nice place to stay. We already found it.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at this home. Great layout, great location. The owner was great to work with.

No complaints, except that we had no hot water on our check-out date. It would have been nice to shower before making the long trip home.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this house. We especially liked having all the bathrooms and the third floor area for kids to hang out in. It was a very short walk to beach, which we took advantage of daily. The owner was especially nice. The grill stopped working and he sent out a new one! No complaints.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, location, & the pool. Our group of 9 had lots of room. The house allows for gathering everyone together in the family room /kitchen or dispersing individually for quiet time. The pool was a great asset for my toddler grandson & was bigger than most private pools in the neighborhood. I accidentally left my IPad & Mr Tate mailed it to me free of charge :) We will definitely rent again. Thanks so much!

Loved IT!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was huge. The kitchen was great for entertaining. The house was a very short walk to the beach and close to everything you need on vacation. I would recommend this to a large group and would stay again!!!

Loved the location and the layout of the home. Beautiful Crow's Nest with views of the gulf.

Property needs some TLC. Cleaning crew needs to make sure and clean floors. We had two small ones with us and I had to totally mop the first floor so they could play. We had issues with the washing machine and the dishwasher. Thanks goodness we ran the dishwasher while there or the kitchen floor would have been flooded! Back deck has some issues that need to be tended to as well.

We love the Crystal Beach area but probably wouldn't sta here again.

Owner's Response: All the guest complaints were addressed in a timely manner. Dishwasher was stopped up with food, do to the fact that the guest did not rinse off pots/pans or plates before placing them in the dishwasher. Control Board went out on Washing Machine, part had to be ordered.
