Sea La Vie is a play on the French expression “C’est la vie”. In English, “C’est la vie” translates to “Such is Life” or “That is just the way life is”. With the relaxing, soul-quieting atmosphere in Villages of Crystal Beach and in Destin, we found Sea La Vie to be the appropriate name for our house.

Sea La Vie is a new construction home in the gated community of Villages of Crystal Beach. The home has new, upscale furnishings throughout, and we’ve emphasized the little pleasures to ensure your vacation is as relaxing as possible.

Sea La Vie is located just a few steps from the huge lagoon pool and hot tub. You can enjoy lush landscaping all around and music playing all day. Sit and relax at the Tiki Hut Area with comfy seating and a large grilling area. You will also find a volley ball area near the south gate.

The white sands and emerald waters await you. Located just 2 blocks from the neighborhood, the beach is a short stroll away (we provide a cart for your beach items), or a free trolley ride seasonally (Memorial Day to Labor Day). The Sandy Express Trolley will take you from the neighborhood to the beach and bring you back too!

Villages of Crystal Beach is located right across the street from Destin Commons. You’ll find many shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and movie theaters a stone’s throw from the home. Also, there are numerous golf courses within 1-5 miles of here.




Living, Dining, & Kitchen:

The first floor has a very open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen boasting granite countertops and stainless appliances. You’ll find everything you need to create fabulous meals and entertain your friends and family. There is a large breakfast bar overlooking the casual, yet elegant dining area and very spacious living area. There is also a powder room located on the first floor.


Master Bedroom #1:

The Master Bedroom downstairs has a King bed and an on suite bath with double vanity, walk in shower and a soaking tub.



Hardwood steps with iron railings lead you to the second floor where you will find the second living area that leads to the quaint covered porch. Young and older ones can enjoy the XBOX 360 and large screen TV!


Master Bedroom #2:

The Master Bedroom upstairs also features a King bed and full bathroom.


Bedroom #3:

Bedroom #3 has a Queen bed and has access to the covered porch.


Bedroom #4:

Bedroom #4 has creatively constructed bunk beds with playful furnishings and can sleep 4 people.

A large bathroom with double sinks and a laundry area complete the second floor.


Free WiFi and extended cable with 5 flat screen TVs add to this five star property. In addition to the grilling area at the pool, this home offers a private gas grill and a cart for your beach items to take along to the beach. Come, stay, play, and make life long memories at Sea La Vie!

We are Sadhana and Hemant. We live in Louisville, KY and we love to travel and see the world. It has been our dream to own a vacation home close to the sea, and last year we decided to make that happen.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year we've stayed in this home. It is a beautiful home and comfortably sleeps our family, including 2 toddlers. It is walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The pool is gorgeous and you really could spend all day there. The owner is responsive to any and all needs before and during your stay. We will be back!

Satisfied Repeat Customer

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to Sea La Vie for the last couple of years and I am Always extremely pleased with the experience. This was the first time that I was traveling with a baby, so I was a little worried about the amount of things that I would need to bring and how crowded we would be with all of the baby gear. I was pleasantly surprised to find outlet covers on the main floor outlets and safety locks available for us to use as well as baby utensils stocked in the kitchen. The Master bedroom is spacious enough to allow for a pack in play to be set up comfortably and there was enough room for my 10 month old to run around in his walker with ease. Furthermore, we preferred to eat in instead of going out and the Kitchen is fully stocked with anything you could possibly need! Sea La Vie truly makes it feel like your home away from home.

Great property, pool & location!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised. The owners were very responsive - there were a couple of minor glitches which they resolved quickly. The beach chairs, umbrellas and beach cart were great perks. We vacationed as two families of nine (4 adults & 5 collage aged 'kids') - the accommodations worked very well for us, cozy but still had ample room. We grilled several meals and benefited from a well-stocked kitchen. The walk to the beach was very doable (& good exercise), might be a bit much for toddlers/small children to walk at the end of a full day of sand and sun.

We would recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Our first trip to Destin was positive from every aspect (except the going home part).

Amazing! We are absolutely coming back!

  • 5 of 5

The Sea La Vie was wonderful. First of all, it was located a stone's throw from the beach. That was very important to my family when we were trying to choose a place to stay. We wanted to be in very close proximity to the beach and we absolutely were. Just a short drive (which also could have been a walk) and we were at the beach. There were many public access points where you could park and walk onto the beach. Also, the rental provided beach chairs and umbrellas! How considerate! The beach was pristine. The sand was soft and powdery and the ocean was a beautiful blue! Second, the home itself was immaculate! Aside from being clean, it was very roomy with several different areas to gather in and enjoy. There were plenty of tv's and even an Xbox. Also, the home provided many kitchen items with which to prepare, cook and serve meals. All the appliances worked just fine including the heat and air conditioning. The community pool was a great alternative to the beach! The pool area was clean and safe. We appreciated the fact that the Villages of Crystal Beach community was gated and there was a visible and constant property "caretaker" making the rounds during our stay. There were some college "spring breakers" having their fun but we never felt it was out of control. The property management seemed to keep a pretty good handle on it. I will say, however, the kids in my brood are 14, 15, 17 and 18, so they are a bit older and not as fascinated by the older college kids' "get togethers". There were a few other families with smaller children but not many. I assume the abundance of college kids wouldn't be as prominent any other time of the year. The location of Sea La Vie in regards to shopping, attractions, restaurants, convenience stores, etc. was excellent. We were able to find everything we needed or wanted within a few miles. This was our first time enjoying the Destin area as a spring break get-away and as first-timers, I feel like we were able to navigate the area without too much frustration. The area wasn't too "tourist-y" or overly marketed. I think the area Chamber of Commerce has done a great job of welcoming visitors without turning the area into an all out circus show! We are ABSOLUTELY coming back for a stay in the summer! Crystal Beach was beautiful and I highly recommend Sea La Vie as a relaxing and amazing family retreat!

From the Owner

While traveling to Destin, we fell in love with the sugar-white sands and the calm, emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We think the atmosphere and environment of this location quietens the soul and leads to a greater joy of spending time with family and friends.

Activity and Interests

Great location in Destin. Just one block away from shopping, movies and restaurants. Enjoy golf, water sports, beach and more! Tons of stuff to do in Destin for people of any age! Destin Commons has World class shopping, restaurants and Rave movies, just across Hwy 98. Beach is only 2 blocks away. Several golf courses within 1-3 miles. Silver Sands outlet mall is not to be missed and be sure to visit the quaint area of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin for tons of fun for kids and the adults!

Sea La Vie is located a stone's throw from the beach and Destin Commons. Shops, restaurants, and golf courses abound, and they are just a few minutes away. The huge community lagoon pool is just a few seconds away! The trolley ride to the beach in Summer is just the cherry on top!
