Come and stay with us in our Destin vacation beach home (over 2300 square feet) with wrap-around decks for sunbathing, a screened porch, and a very private pool!

The main floor opens to a wrap-around deck facing the front yard, and a screened-in porch that overlooks the backyard and the private pool. You can enjoy the breezes, watch the kids in the pool, eat on the porch or decks or cook on the gas or charcoal grills. Destin Beach Living at its best!

About Michael and Tracy D'Avella

We came for a vacation and fell in love with Destin. We began doing vacation rentals in 2007. It gives us great joy to rent to our vacationing guests and hear about what a wonderful time they had in Destin. Most of our guests come back year after year. We feel like they are family. We are always available for our guests and take great pride in giving each of them excellent customer service. Making wonderful family memories in Destin is what it is all about. We have so many with our own children.

Michael and Tracy D'Avella purchased this house in 2015

Why Michael and Tracy D'Avella chose Crystal Beach

We fell in love with 'A Frame of Mind' Crystal Beach House the moment we walked in the front door. This is not your standard cookie cutter beach house. It is truly unique and has a true beach house feel. The A frame roof gives it a storybook look and the high ceilings in the top floor bedrooms are very special. The bunk room is absolutely adorable and children just love it. The main floor with the kitchen, dining room and two living rooms is a great gathering place for the whole family. Then we went to the back yard...What a private pool. It is AMAZING! To have such privacy in Destin is very rare. We love it and are certain you will too.

What makes this house unique

There are so many things that make 'A Frame of Mind' Crystal Beach House unique. There are private balconies for each bedroom. The master bedroom leads right out to the very private pool and tropical landscape. There are wrap around porches off of the living rooms. There is a screened porch right off the dining room with a great view of the pool. Next to the pool there is a pool/play house that children just love. It is loaded with games and has a futon so they can have a 'sleepover' if they like. There is a beach wagon, toys, floats, and boogie boards for our guests to use and they all love that. The pool is the most unique thing about this home because it is so private, a true rarity in Destin.

Highlights: Pool and walking distance to the beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 of us (7 adults and 5 children). There was plenty of space, the beds were super comfortable, plenty of drawer space to unpack. We never felt like we were too crowded. There are so many spots in this house to escape to if you need alone time to read or just be by yourself. We had no issues to speak of. The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed. Tracy was great to work with. The pool was a HUGE bonus. Everyone loved it. Short walking distance to the beach, which was beautiful. I only wish there was a bathroom on the main floor (but I knew it beforehand.) A fabulous vacation spot. I would definitely recommend A Frame of Mind.

The screen porch is perfect for morning coffee while the kids jump in the pool and have a blast. We are so fortunate to have a GREAT cleaning lady that keeps the house up to prefect standards. Thank you for referring us to your friends and family and we look forward to your return.

I wouldn't change a thing about the house and the location.

  • 5 of 5

This House was totally the home for my family, very simular to what we have in Oklahoma minus the inground pool and ocean. I will definitely spread the word.
