About the Owner

Our family has visited the Destin area for several years now we love the emerald beaches and all the attractions of the area. The guys love the deep sea fishing and the girls love the shopping.

We finally decided last year instead of renting, to purchase our own home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our best vacation in a long time. The house itself was everything promised and more. There was not a thing left out. We appreciate the owners generosity in allowing us to use the beach chairs, ice chest, wagon and grill. We are planning our next trip to Ahoy Matey soon but it's all booked out for the summer already! We will be back next year, no question!

Wonderful Family Memories!

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 4 children on this trip. The house was beautiful and we immediately felt at home. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals. The pool was beautiful and the kids loved it! The beach is 3 blocks away but we enjoyed the walk. The wagon supplied was perfect for chairs toys and a little boy. If you do not want to walk, you could take a shuttle or drive. Cheryl was so helpful with any of our questions. We definitely hope to have many repeat trips!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 different families and plenty of space! Everything was better than we expected. The kitchen had everything we might need. We didn't dine out once on our trip as we could cook/grill everything there. Kids loved the convenience of the pool being so close by. The beach cart was also great to have and very helpful to pile everything on. Short walk to the beach. The 4 year old along easily walked the few short blocks. We had such a wonderful time and can't wait to come back!!

Cheryl was great to work with! Answered all questions quickly!

We went for the Christmas Holidays with our Children. The house was beautiful and had all the trimmings of home (and a few upgrades). I will never want to stay in a hotel again after experiencing Ahoy Matey! It made the trip that much more amazing! There was no other word for how our trip to Florida was; just amazing, and the house was so much a part of that. It really made the whole experience!

Great house..Horrible Noise Problem in Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We rented Ahoy Matey for the Thanksgiving Holiday Week. The home is beautifully decorated and practically brand new. The kitchen was well stocked and I was able to prepare the Thanksgiving meal without any problems. There were large tvs in all the bedrooms so everyone could enjoy watching what they wanted each evening. Cheryl and the management company was wonderful to work with and was easy to contact. The neighborhood was beautifully laid out and well maintained. The home was about 3 blocks from the ocean. I guess you could walk and we did a couple of times, however, if you want to take chairs, etc., to the beach, you would be better off driving down and parking. Parking was not an issue during November but I would imagine it could be difficult in the summer. The only negative thing with our rental was the construction going on. There were 4 houses under construction beside Ahoy Matey and another one behind it. Construction began at 7 a.m. and it ended about 5 p.m. The noise was so loud that we could not go outside and sit on the balcony or sleep in. I did contact Cheryl but there was nothing she could do. Basically, we were woken up with drills and hammers at 7 a.m. and unless we wanted to leave the home and go somewhere else for peace and quiet, we felt trapped inside the house. The home was very nice but it was not a relaxing vacation at all and not what we had planned. My advice to all renters (no matter where you rent) always ask if there is construction going on close by. We have learned a valuable lesson for the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments and we are truly sorry about the construction noise you experienced during your vacation. The neighborhood is almost built out and by January 2015 there will be no more construction so no more noise! We hope that the house and the great time you had in Destin will prompt a future return to our home. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again!

Everything was better than we had hoped for. We loved the layout of the house as we traveled with my parents and our 2 children (4 & 6). My family had the whole upstairs. I think what I loved the most was the quietness of the house. You didn't hear anything at night, which was great for the kids. Even with the construction next door it was very quiet. The kitchen was fully stocked and we didn't need to buy anything extra when we cooked at the house.

The beach is amazing, you can walk but we opted to drive. We also had the chair service at the beach. Next time I would buy a boogie board and just leave it instead of renting 2 each day. There was plenty of parking at the beach each day. The pool was very clean and we always had a chair.

We cannot wait to come back again. Destin is our new favorite vacation destination.

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home for families! Two families stayed and had more than enough room for everyone to relax and have fun. Kitchen was perfect for evening meals and visiting with each other. Pool was within great distance to enjoy. Beach trolley was nice to have an option instead of walking to the beach. The house cart was easy to load and walk to the beach too!

So much to do in the area. We had an absolutely wonderful time and didn't want to leave!

From the Owner

We decided upon Villages of Crystal Beach because we loved the location and the design of the homes. The gated community and beautiful lagoon style pool were also a big attraction. The new construction was an added bonus because we could put our own personal touch on our home away from home. This is a perfect vacation home for our family. We hope you will enjoy it as well.
