Wow, this is the place you've been looking for!! You really dont find this level of space and privacy in a beach neighborhood, but with our extra large lot and an undeveloped lot next door, it has a very secluded feel. Close to the beach and all the attractions around Destin! Beachy decor, Private pool, spa/hottub, wetbar in adjacent gazebo. Cabana with toilet and shower next to the pool. Big lot, lots of space, multiple decks, custom privacy fence, --Perfect for your group. If you are planning a multi-family vacation, you will not be on top of each other here. You will love the peace and privacy and space this location offers.

This beautiful home is close to everything in Destin. Just 300 yards to the Gulf (4 minute walk) and located on a very quiet residential street.

With about 3300SF, and a lot that is 60% bigger than typical Crystal Beach lots, you will not feel cramped in with your party. Master bedroom has king bed private bath with jetted tub. Custom 6 foot privacy fence surrounding back yard provides unparalled peace and privacy. (Adjacent lot is undeveloped and natural) Five decks give you lots of outdoor space.

Room for the kids or adults to throw frisbees, footballs, etc. Outside cabana bathroom.

The property may be rented without the apartment in non high season times. The apartment has a full kitchen, new cabinets with granite tops, and new appliances. Its got a private bedroom and a full living room. Its awesome down there.

Enjoy the cool Gulf breezes sitting on the shaded deck while watching your kids play in the pool. Within walking distance to the new Destin Commons shopping / dining outdoor mall. Also, a church neaby has an excellent new playground for the little ones.

High speed internet included. NOTE: NO COLLEGE OR HIGH SCHOOL SPRING BREAK GROUPS. Family Rental only.

Sunny beachy colored decor throughout. The kitchen has tile countertops and new appliances. Plenty of room for your party without being cramped. Enjoy the seabreaze on the deck. All bedrooms have their own full bath and cable TV. A beautiful home at a more than fair price.

About the Owner

I love Destin and can't wait to retire here and fish and golf my life away. Our property is awesome. Unparalled privacy and space. Custom fence encloses the back yard surrounded by 12 palm trees. Talk about a place to chill.

Nice spacious and private home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here and totally loved the house and the location. The lot is huge, the pool is of a good size and there are lots of decks so that our party did not feel cramped in together. The privacy is extraordinary for a beach area, with the adjacent lot still natural which adds to the privacy, along with the 6 foot fence aroiund the back yard. Our dog was fee to roam and enjoyed the stay as much as we did. The street is quiet and not busy but just a short walk to the two beach accesses. The owner was atttentive and has a nice gentleman that oversees the property locally. We plan to return sometime in the near future.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful place to stay and soak up the sun. The backyard is fenced in and the kids loved the private pool. The white sand beach is just a short walk away. The home is clean and it has all the necessary things you may need such as towels and kitchenware. I would highly recommend this home.

Awesome Family Vacation Location!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here over Christmas to New Years and found it to be an excellent location for an extended family vacation location. The downstairs apartment was awesome for grandma and my family and my sisters family stayed in the upper two levels. The location is VERY private and the back yard was great for our outdoor time, with the hot tub and the pool. The owners had to plant new palm trees because of the freeze last year, the leaves are not fully out yet, but the back yard is awesome. There are lots of decks everywhere. Short walk to the beach, and close to Destin Commons and the Outlet mall. We plan to return for my sisters 50th birthday nest year.

Overall good place in nice location that needs some updates.

  • 3 of 5
Lets start with the positives.

1) plenty of space (2 adults and 3 kids) and no one felt cramped
2) house is only 5-8 min walk to beachfront which is convenient for midday breaks and lunch
3) the house is on a nice lot with plenty of deck space, large backyard, big driveway and empty lot next door
4) there were items to use like beach wagons, boogie boards that we couldn't bring but the owner already had (on the flip side one negative ill list later is the back deck is cluttered with too many things)
5) quiet no loud neighbors
6) living room was comfortable with nice sized
7) pool was fun for kids


1) having an instruction manual for how to use the pool. The owner insists its simple to follow but the last thing I want to do when I'm on vacation is switch pool valves manually back and forth and have to plan out at least 3-4 hours ahead of time when we need to turn on hot tub to heat it up. If this is a top priority for adults wanting to relax at night this set up isn't for you.

2) the owner forgot to mention in his instruction manual that the pool had a good sized leak meaning a garden hose had to trickle water in slowly over the course of the entire week we were there. I'm not trying to be someone's pool guy on vacation

3) the Internet wasn't working had to call and refresh signal from basement and owner had to mention not to 'mess things up'. I was just trying to have working Internet the last place I want to be is in basement on the phone.

4) lots of clutter on deck space (eyesore), old equipment needs to go or be refreshed

5) calendar, site and pictures are outdated none of those backyard trees were there when we stayed should show more accurate view of what you're getting

All in all we enjoyed our first trip to Destin but as frequent travelers some of these issues that the owner may seem minor, irrelevant or people being picky, do make an average vacation a great vacation and place we want to come to and spend money at again. While the owner may disagree, i Just feel there needs to be updates to outdoor/pool functionality and perhaps having full time property management.

Family Vacation Trip

  • 3 of 5
We rented this house in May about a month before our trip. I will start with some of the pros for the house. The pool is very big, shower and bathroom outside, gas grill, nice open kitchen with huge big screen tv in living room, tons of beach chairs and easy to use beach buggies. The cons for this house : the second day we were in the house we smelled a strong gas smell in the apartment part of the house. Dave (bless his heart..he is 80 something retired man) came to try and fix. There was something leaking gasoline in the garage. He tried to move things out but the smell did not go away and we could not use this part of the house the rest of the week due to the strong smell of gasoline. This unfortunately made two of the boys having to sleep on the couches in the main part of house. The hot tub took 3-4 hours to heat up. We would turn it on at lunch but someone would turn it off during the day while we were at the beach. The bathrooms are very small. You could not bend down to reach shampoo in the one bathroom without hitting the wall. The other size bathroom did have a shower caddy. The master bathroom was not good. It has a master garden tub but the water pressure is awful and the shower head is right next to the wall. There is no shower curtain or door so you are standing in the middle of the tub freezing. We never had hot water after three of us would take showers. I did send an email to the owner regarding our problems after the trip but never received a response.

Owner's Response: We get rave reviews from so many people, we get many that return and many that refer us, that when one party complains about such things as having difficulty picking up a bar of soap in a shower, you have to put that review in context. We did have a pressure washer in the garage that leaked gas and had our attending service man come and take care of it. Concerning the hot tub, it does take 2-3 hours to heat up because our system heats the pool OR the hot tub and the valves must be set up correctly, and in my house instructions I ask them to call me to go over once they arrived which this party never did, so no doubt they messed up the valve settings. You have to expect when you rent your property to the general public.....

Fall Break 2012

  • 5 of 5
This house was great! It was everything we needed for our group of 3 adults and 5 kids (three families). Each bedroom has its own bathroom, and that was a plus for us. The pool and hot tub were amazing as well, when we finally figured out how to get the heat going to them. The walk to the beach was not too far at all. We were within walking distance to Outback Steakhouse, and right across Hwy 98 from Destin Commons (great shopping) The dining room table seats 8 people comfortably, so we had some nice meals together there. There is a flat screen TV in each bedroom, as well as a HUGE one in the living room. It was like being in a theater! I would rent this house again for sure, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
