About the Owner

We've both grownup on along the beach. West Coast for me and North East Coast for my husband, but nothing compares to the world famous sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters of Destin. Friends introduced our family to Destin in 2005 and we fell in love, hoping to one day own a beach house that we could share with family, old friends, and new friends. From our family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and make lasting memories to cherish.

Enjoyable Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with renting Plantation House through VRBO and I was very happy with my experience. We've rented this property, over the years, 8 of the 9 weeks that we've vacationed in Destin. During those trips, it was managed by others. This fact alone indicates how much my family enjoys this house especially with all the new & improved upgrades. Our standout favorites are the pool, the wrap-around porch & the beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean. The technology upgrades are a huge plus, also. There's no doubt that we will continue to rent this property, if available, when vacationing in Destin.

Great floor plan and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Crystal Beach for many years. This was the most perfect location! We had an awesome view of the ocean and only a short walk to the beach. The floor plan was perfect for our family of 10. The carriage house over the playroom/garage was perfect for our son, his wife & 18-month-old, providing a quiet place for napping and early night sleeping. The 3rd level apartment-like room in the main house was great for our other son & his wife with their three children sharing the two bedrooms and bathroom on the 2nd floor. We had the master on the ground level with the amazing bathroom. The living area, dining, and kitchen were perfectly designed for a large group, and we enjoyed the space tremendously. The pool is wonderful with shade just when you need it most. The porches and balcony provide space for groups to gather or for quiet time. The swing is fabulous! We certainly hope to return again!

Perfect location in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 loved our weeklong stay at Plantation House!! The location was perfect! It is so close to all the great shops and restaurants. We loved riding the bikes around the beautiful Crystal Beach area. The house was very spacious with kings beds in every bedroom. Our kids loved the pool and the game room! The sound system in the house was really cool and gave us hours of music enjoyment. We all want to purchase the Sonos system for our own homes. The large porches gave us wonderful outdoor space and great views of the ocean. The front porch swing was a favorite spot for everyone. Thank you for sharing your beach house and we can't wait to come back next year.

Beautiful, convenient, well-maintained accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 12 -- parents, three children and spouses, and four grandchildren -- spent their first-ever beach vacation together at the Plantation House in Destin. We had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful home, convenience to the beach and nearby attractions, and the excellent service provided by the local contact who responded quickly to all our questions. We especially loved the grilling area, SONOS for our music, the pool, bikes, and other beach essentials available to us right there at the house. We highly recommend this wonderful property to families such as ours who want to spend quality time together having fun in the sun!!!! It met all our needs. Thanks so much to Kimbie for making it available!!!

PERFECTION!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I reviewed over 100+ homes on VRBO since it was the first time using the website and I have to say" LOOK NO MORE!" This is the house that represents PERFECTION from small to large details. My family of 12 used to go on 6 vacations a year, 3 in the summer and 3 in the winter, but we stopped after my Mother passed in 2005. We decided after 10 years to come together and do it again in Memory of Her and The Plantation House exceeded our expectations. Thank you to the owners for letting us re-live the memories of my mom (who was a perfectionist) and for the new ones we will continue to have!

MEMORABLE TIME WITH FAMILY IN A BEAUTIFUL HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

We decided early in 2015 to take a family vacation to Destin, Florida. Not knowing anything about the area, we started looking on the internet for houses to rent during our stay. We found the "Plantation House" and decided it would fit our family size (7 adults, 6 children). Little did we know how wonderful of a time we were going to have! This house has everything--beautiful deco, lots of room, pool, game room, across from beach, bicycles, beach necessities, 3 sided wrap-around porch, and much more. All of our family wants to go back next year and stay at this house again. The owner is so easy to get in touch with as well as the person who meets you and helps you with anything that comes up during the week. This house is beautiful, spacious, and very well maintained. We will be going back to this house again!

Location

From the Owner

Crystal Shores at Crystal Beach is a pristine neighborhood with a sense of quiet community. You'll see neighbors riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and waving hello from behind their white picket fences. The house is at the front of the neighborhood, directly across from the beach and 2-3 blocks from all the action of shops, gaming, and restaurants.

Crystal Beach is one of the most desirable areas due to the close proximity to the beach and activites/shops. Just one block from the beach! Within walking distance there is all the action of shops, gaming, and restaurants. A few blocks from the renowned Henderson Park Inn which sits on a National Preserve, great place for a cocktail or dinner. A huge outdoor mall, the Destin Commons, is just a three block bike ride.
