About Cheryl - Big Tuna

We are from Houston, Tx. We LOVE the Destin area and decided to buy this fabulous new home to make fun memories with our family. We love this house and we hope you love it as much as we do!

Cheryl - Big Tuna purchased this house in 2013

Why Cheryl - Big Tuna chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We immediately fell in love with this neighborhood. It is a clean, well organized area with a fun lagoon style pool. The location of this neighborhood was perfect because of the walking distance to the beach and the MANY shopping/eating areas. There is so much to do around this area! You and your family will never get bored.

What makes this house unique

Trolley that will drive you to the beach in peak season, very child friendly, and upscale coastal furnishings.

Big Tuna Couples Trip

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful vacation in Destin, FL. Big Tuna was more than accommodating for our 3 couples. We had enough extra sleeping places for at least 4! A few things of note that we did not feel were covered in the description about the place. The beach is a 10 minute walk since Big Tuna is at the opposite end of the neighborhood from the road to beach access. Once you reach the road, you've got 4-5 blocks. There is a shuttle, which you will definitely want to take. When we got there, there were ants everywhere! A lot of the food we brought were full of ants within an hour. We called maintenance and this issue was taken care of immediately. We didn't see another ant the rest of the trip. My only other advice is to take showers in turns. When everyone comes off the beach and wants to shower at the same time, we ran out of hot water most days.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your trip to Destin! We pride ourselves on our rapid responses to maintenance issues so thanks for pointing that out. However, I do have one issue with the distance you mentioned to the beach. Once you get to the back gate of the development, it is literally only 2 blocks to the beach so I'm not sure where the 4-5 blocks came from. It's clear from the map location, but we are happy to also provide the community transportation during our busy seasons. We hope to see you back at Big Tuna again! Thank you again for staying with us!

BIG TUNA is OUTSTANDING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed at the Big Tuna for a fun getaway at the end of April. This house is absolutely gorgeous inside!!!!! The owners have a keen eye for decorating!!! Each and every room was so perfectly styled for a beach house. The beds were extremely comfortable and and the rooms were spacious.They have absolutely everything that we needed! The pool is literally right around the corner and the beach is a pleasant walk. We enjoyed this house so very much and we can not wait to go back!!!! Thank you Big Tuna for being our home away from home!!!!!!!

Second Visit for Our Family, Still Our Favorite Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We were able to return to Big Tuna at Villages of Crystal Beach for our family's summer vacation. This property still is a crowd pleaser. This is our 6th year to stay at The Villages of Crystal Beach. We love the lagoon style pool. The block and a half to the beach is no hassle for us! This particular home suits our family in every way. Again, with a new baby in the family, we are so appreciative of all of the accommodations, big and small (crib, pack-n-play, baby gates, baby dishes, bathtub, etc). Although we had plenty of beds for our family, there is even a nice blow up mattress to use for a bigger crowd. We love that this home is so close to the pool. We will continue to return to The Villages of Crystal Beach and Big Tuna.

BIG TUNA

  • 5 of 5

Cannot speak more highly of the owners and the house! My college friends and I were able to enjoy a relaxing time at the beach at this house away from all the craziness in Panama. The owners were extremely helpful in accommodating us and even helping me with my proposal! The house was perfect. It has a very modern finish and had plenty of space for all of our group. Would recommend this house highly to anyone looking for a comfortable house to go and relax in Destin.

AMAZING VACATION DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family spring break at Big Tuna. The home had everything we were hoping for and more. The pool was fabulous, warm and inviting. The short walk to the beach was safe for our family and the Beach Trolley option was appreciated. Our three children, their two additional friends and my husband and I had a fantastic week. Thanks to VRBO for making our vacation easy to plan and for emailing instructions/information weeks ahead of time. We will definitely be back!! Don't miss out on Big Tuna!!

Awesome Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family, parents and in-laws just returned from a DESTINation Thanksgiving and we stayed at the Big Tuna. It was fantastic! The pictures of the property were so wonderful that we were afraid we would be let down once we arrived. Just the opposite....the Big Tuna and the property was perfect! We have a 4 and 6 year old and they loved the bunk beds. My parents and in-laws both got the king bed rooms and my husband and I had the queen. The rooms were comfortable, clean and very beachy! We loved all the decorations! The kitchen was very well stocked with dishes and much needed items. There was also plenty of kid friendly kitchen items and games for us. We have talked about coming again in 2 years and we will totally stay here again! Thank you for having such a lovely home for us to stay in!
