About the Owner
We've both grownup on along the beach. West Coast for me and North East Coast for my husband, but nothing compares to the world famous sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters of Destin. Friends introduced our family to Destin in 2005 and we fell in love, hoping to one day own a beach house that we could share with family, old friends, and new friends. From our family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and make lasting memories to cherish.

Living the Dream!
On our arrival, we entered the house to the tunes of Bob Marley playing on the Sonos music system. Everyone scattered throughout the roomy house to find their rooms and get settled in. Everything was shiny and clean and the colors and the decor were beautiful!
We quickly found the doors leading from every bedroom onto porches and balconies on every floor with views that were amazing! We felt like we were in a magazine spread!! And the porch was to die for...wrapping around three sides of the house overlooking a yard with a white picket fence, a bike rack with four beach bikes straight out of a movie.
And the pool....beautiful, sparkling and so inviting. With a table and stools to sip a drink while watching the kids splash in the pool everyday after going to the beach (and showering in the outdoor shower to clean off the sand).
And my favorite spot...the swinging bed on the front porch. Every morning, I took my coffee and my iPad to the front porch and answered my work emails while swinging lightly in the breeze listening to island music and the gentle sounds of the beach!! Until the little ones came out to cuddle with me on the swing...memories that will never be forgotten.
Kimbie (the owner) and Randy (the property manager) were amazing and didn't miss a thing!! We felt so welcome! And most houses we have rented are stripped of everything in the kitchen and bathrooms, but not here. The kitchen was stocked with spices and other little extras that made it much easier to cook each night. Plus enough bathroom essentials t make it until we could get to a store.
We loved it so much that it is the house we will rent every time we go back to Destin! We had planned to travel to a different place each year, but it will be very hard to find a place that was this perfect...I don't tho punk it will be possible!,
And by the way, Destin was beautiful, also!
Thank you, Kimbie, for giving us the opportunity to experience Destin as if we were living the dream!!!
Perfect family vacation
A week in paradise
PLANTATION HOUSE IS WONDERFUL!
From the Owner
“Crystal Shores at Crystal Beach is a pristine neighborhood with a sense of quiet community. You'll see neighbors riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and waving hello from behind their white picket fences. The house is at the front of the neighborhood, directly across from the beach and 2-3 blocks from all the action of shops, gaming, and restaurants.”
Activity and Interests
Crystal Shores at Crystal Beach is a pristine neighborhood with a sense of quiet beachside community. You'll see neighbors riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and waving hello from behind their white picket fences. Crystal Beach is one of the most desirable areas due to the close proximity to the beach and activites/shops. Just one block from the beach! Within walking distance there is all the action of shops, gaming, and restaurants. A few blocks from the renowned Henderson Park Inn which sits on a National Preserve, great place for a cocktail or dinner. A huge outdoor mall, the Destin Commons, is just a three block bike ride. Familiar restaurants and big retail stores are within a two block walk. Crystal Beach is one of the Northwest Florida's most sought after vacation communities.
