Private Pool & Screened Porch...BJ's Crystal Beach House

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 white picket fence and stained glass window in the gable give our Destin home a 'storybook look'.

On the first floor, enter our Destin beach, vacation home through a private patio to the master bedroom with a king-sized bed, a queen sleeper sofa and a private bath with a large shower and two shower heads. One shower head is a hand-held shower. Also, there is a large walk-in closet and a laundry room.

The second floor is the main level with two sitting areas, two dining areas, and a kitchen with an island with stools. There is a queen leather sleeper sofa on the second floor of our beach house. The main floor opens to a wrap-around deck and a screened-in porch that overlooks the backyard and the private pool. You can sit and enjoy the breezes, watch the kids in the pool, eat on the porch or decks or cook on the gas or charcoal grill. Destin Beach Living at its best!

Meet your family or guests on the middle level for open entertaining in two living areas, attractive tiled dining room, or in the full kitchen with breakfast bar . There you will want to wander out to the screened porch where you can enjoy the shady, serene, and natural backyard and catch more of Destin's gulf breezes.

An appealing spiral stairway to the third floor takes you to a view of the Destin, Florida's beautiful, emerald ocean. There are two spacious bedrooms with cathedral ceilings, TV/DVD, and king size beds in each bedroom. There is a full bath on the top level , The loft has four beds for sleeping the kids, too. The beds are built-ins with pull-out trundle beds underneath. There is a 32 inch TV for the kids with a DVD player as well. You can walk out on any of the three decks and sit while enjoy the breezes from Destin's beach or the sunshine.

The very private, fenced backyard has another surprise - a PLAYHOUSE(200 sq.ft.), just for FUN or sleepovers! Plus...your VERY private swimming pool to cool off in! The pool is available for heating when the weather is cool.

The private backyard will keep your children and pet inside or just a give you some privacy to relax and enjoy your Destin vacation. There is a doggie door that will allow your pet to go from the house to the backyard. You can enjoy the shade or sit in the sun. The screened porch will allow you to sit and watch your family or guests in the backyard while you enjoy Destin's Gulf breezes from the ocean.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: The best part of owning BJ's Crystal Beach House is sharing it with family, friends, and our guests. We purchased our home away from home before we retired. Bobby Joe was a pilot at Delta Airlines, and Faith was a school counselor. Now Bobby Joe is coaching soceer, and Faith manages the beach rentals. We have four sons, two daughter-in-laws and three granddaughters, and one grandson who share the beach house with us. We do our best to provide a place for you to relax and build memories with your family. Come take a long walk on the beach, wiggle your toes in the sand or sit by our pool at BJ's Crystal Beach House in the Crystal Beach Neighborhood of Destin. We will put the welcome mat out for you!

                      Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
                      We decided to purchase our beach house after looking at many homes because it seemed just right for our three generational family to get together. We loved the wonderful private yard with trees, a pool and a deck not to mention the screened porch as well as the playhouse. We love that our home is close to the beach but has the privacy of a back and front yard. In addition, the fact that we are right in the middle of Destin being across from Destin Commons Shopping Center, but still the charm of a neighborhood that the Crystal Beach Area has, was very appealing. And finally, there was a charming cottage feel to the spiral stairs and A-frame that just spoke beach home. It felt like it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beach lifestyle. We are pleased we purchased it and love our beach home. We hope you will, too.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love eating many of our meals on the screened porch that overlooks the pool. The openess of the second floor allows us and our guests to come together to enjoy each other, but then the spaciousness and all the decks allow for privacy and small groups as well. We love the size of the front and back yard with trees that provide shade from the Florida heat and of course, the pool. We also enjoy having children or teenagers enjoy the playhouse and the pool together while the adults lounge near by. The light in and around the pool allows night swimming. We love sleeping with the windows open in the spring and fall to enjoy ocean breezes. Then we can walk to the beach anytime and stroll or sunbathe. When we want to shop or eat out, we are near so many restaurants and shops, that our beach home, just makes it a great spot for us and our family. Come see for yourself!
