Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Crystal Pearl with 13 family members and it was the perfect place and excellent location. The pool house was perfect for the grandparents to be alone and get away from the noise. The main house was very spacious and had everything that you could need for your stay. Just a short walk to a beautiful beach and if you don't want to walk to the water there's a pool right there. I never met the owner, but she was very helpful with everything through e-mail & text. I would highly recommend the Crystal Pearl based on my stay.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location is great for the beach access, shopping, and eating. The house is very spacious with the added bonus of a guest house and private pool. Linda, the owner/manager is most helpful, cooperative and responsive to questions. We had a fabulous week staying here!

Perfect place for the family of the groom!

  • 5 of 5

As mother and father of the groom we hosted a pre-wedding cookout the night before. The main living area was perfect for this. We hung paper lanterns and decorated the pool and patio areas. It was magical! The guys even ended up using the unused 3rd floor loft to get dressed before the wedding. Daughter & son-in-law stayed in the guest house with their 1 and 2 year olds and 5 adults stayed in the main house throughout the week. Everyone had ample room, privacy when needed, and were comfortable. The pool was a definite relief after some long days getting ready for that wedding! Also, my two favorite things - the beach and shopping are close by.

We did have some trouble with the air con in the guest house but Linda fixed it within 24 hours and the maintenance guys were there and gone quickly.

Overall, we loved our stay here and would return if we ever have that many guests expected again. Just no more weddings for a while please!

Cute House Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect! It was clean and well kept. Everything you could possibly need was supplied in the house and the beds and couches were clean and extremely comfortable. The screened porch was perfect for early mornings and evenings for relaxing. The location is close to the beach and to restaurants and stores. Movie theater close enough for kids to walk to.

Destin Gem

We had a wonderful time here - house in quiet neighborhood close to the beach and shopping. Kitchen, living space, and bedrooms were all comfortable. Two tables made it possible for everyone to have a seat for dinner. The pool house was great for gradnparents. Linda was great; answering questions before and during our stay. A great vacation home!!
