vacation rental description

Your group will enjoy a relaxing vacation in this beautiful home facing the pool in the heart of Destin.

Skip’s Retreat is a lovely 6 bedroom, 3.5 bath home that sleeps 16. Here’s the bed set-up:

There’s a master suite on the first floor with a king bed. 

On the second floor is a king bedroom and a bedroom with 2 full sized beds (sleeps 4). There’s a queen sleeper sofa in the living room on the 2nd floor.

On the 3rd floor is a queen bedroom, another queen bedroom and a bedroom with a bunk bed (2 twins).

The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, tile floors and granite countertops. All bedrooms are ample size with TV/DVD players. Enjoy the pool view from the balconies on the 2nd and 3rd floors. There’s a grill at the house and one in the pool area.

Located in the charming Crystal Beach neighborhood, which is a Seaside-like development on the east side of Destin, this highly desirable gated community has attractive, lush landscaping and is maintained in pristine condition. 

It's a terrific residential area, yet close to restaurants and activities in Destin. Walk the 500 yards to the beach, or hop on the free, seasonal trolley, running from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Walking distance to Destin Commons, which features over 75 shops and restaurants and pop-up water fountains - always popular with the kids! 

The pool and spa area is unbelievable, something you'd find in a world class resort. The lagoon style pool is 30,000 square feet of gorgeous, sparkling clean water, with a walk-in area, three waterfalls, a spa, lavish landscaping, and plenty of sitting areas for your group to enjoy. It also has surround sound, a flat screen TV, grilling area and a Tiki Bar to help you relax and get in the beach groove. 

Skip’s Retreat also has a full sized laundry room with a washer & dryer, two parking spots in the driveway, as well as plenty of additional street parking. This house is located right across the street from the pool. Nearby are 6 miles of paved trails - perfect for both walking or biking.


The Villages of Crystal Beach offers trolley service to/from the beach from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  The hours of the trolley are 10-6 daily, with a one-hour lunch break for the driver.  You can even call the trolley and it will pick you up at your house!

Sorry, Villages of Crystal Beach is a gated community which does not allow trailers, boats or motorcycles.

In order to keep our prices as low as possible, prices listed do not include beach service.  This gives our guests the option of purchasing beach set-ups on their own, if desired, instead of forcing them to purchase an amenity they may not want.  In 2013, a beach set-up, which consists of 2 chairs and an umbrella, was $25/day or $120/week.

We're the reservations team at RealJoy Vacations - we'd love to help you with your vacations plans!
