Why Bruce chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have owned many properties in the Destin area and fell in love with the Crystal Beach community. The community is lined with sidewalks and there are several restaurants only a block away. Crystal beach also offers over a mile of undeveloped beaches at Henderson state park which is a three minute walk from the front door. This is truly the best Central location in the Destin with easy access to restaurants, grocery stores and the Commons Mall only 2 minutes away by car.

What makes this house unique

Crystal Beach has the whitest sand of any beach in the world. Combined with the azure blue water of the gulf of Mexico and the warm temperatures, this is truly paradise! There is nothing more serene than to hear the waves breaking 24 hours a day.

Great beach house, wonderful location !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, such great memories were made in a fantastic beach house with an awesome set up. The pool area was just perfect. We all spent many hours lounging in the pool and playing various games which entertained our group of young and middle age adults which consisted of 4 families. The location was great with very short walk to Crystal Beach which was absolutely beautiful. We stayed first week of October with great weather where we were protected from Hurricane Matthew which did not affect us at all. We only had a few minor issues which was corrected very promptly with a phone call to Bruce. Thank you Bruce for a great experience and hopefully we will be back, all agreed this is our number one choice in Destin for large group !!

House was spot on, Beach access not so much

  • 3 of 5

We loved the house, it was everything we were hoping for. Bruce was awesome and easy to work with, and made sure we had everything for our stay. I may have missed it, but I don't think we were made aware that the tiny amount of beach we had access to was roped off. So you had access to about a 20-25 yard wide stretch of beach (public access). The condos on the beach I guess own the rest, and have no trespassing signs posted. I was told that I could rent a umbrella about 200 yards down the beach for $40. Not a big deal, but definitely would have liked to of known that. We went the week school started so it wasn't too crowded, but I couldn't imagine in peak seasons. So to break it down: yes its a 2 min walk to the beach from the house to a tiny roped off piece of beach you can access. Or you can drag all of your stuff through a 15 min walk to spend $40 a day.

Owner's Response: This is the 11th year of renting this property. Never has there been a complaint of this nature from any of the 10,000+ people that have stayed at this property. To address this renters concern, we do not represent the condo vendors who rent beach chairs and umbrellas. We in fact, provide beach chairs, an umbrella,, boogie boards, floats, cooler and a wagon to transport all of these items free of charge. Crystal Beach remains the most popular beach in the Destin area and our intent has always been to provide the best possible experience for all of our guests.

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your home! there was 20 of us and not once did we seem to be crowded. We loved the décor and the rooms also seemed larger than we expected, plenty of bathrooms so there was never a line..lol the back patio was one of the best we have had plenty for everyone to do of all age groups. Everyone that came on this vacation had a great time.! Thank you for great memories we made at your home!

I don't want to leave!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Seawatch in June, 2016. We had an amazing time. The beach is SO close & the house is perfect! The owners were so very nice & did everything to make sure our time in Destin was perfect!!! Leaving was so sad - I wish we could have stayed for another week. Or a month. There were things we didn't have time to do - and this house is the perfect place to call HOME while you are here! I would highly recommend this home! Thanks for a fantastic vacation!!!

Nearest Airport : Ft. Walton (VPS) at 18 Miles Nearest Barpub : Camille's (1 1/2 Blocks) at 0.1 Miles Nearest Golf : Kelly Plantation at 0.5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Camille's at 0.1 Miles Car: recommended

"Seawatch" is centrally located close to everything...close to the beach which is across the street. Shopping, grocery stores, restaurants are less than one mile. A 2 minute car ride, a 5 minute bike ride or if your up to it, walk... it's only 15 minutes away!

The back yard is set up with a Private In ground Swimming Pool, Outdoor Pool Table, Outdoor Ping Pong Table as well as a Horseshoe pit. There is a Natural Gas grill, so you don't have to worry with changing propane gas tanks. Outdoor speakers provide the ambiance for any occasion.
