Crystal Beach house description

BEAUTIFUL RESORT STYLE HOME - GOLF CART INCLUDED IN OFF SEASON RENTALS

WELCOME
Walk into the private gates of beautifully landscaped “Fawndango’s” and you will feel as if you are staying in your own compound. This is no doubt the most unique set up in all of Crystal Beach. The 75ft x 150ft oversized lot allows plenty of parking. The courtyard/pool area is totally enclosed creating a sense of privacy while actually being in the center of everything. The pool is 5 ½ ft deep and has been converted to a salt water. Not to confuse this with water in the gulf it simply takes salt and converts it to chlorine making it feel silky and smooth. Our guests are in awe the second they walk into the homes boosting 11 different cheerful room colors.

Enjoy the gulf breeze in a Street Legal Low Speed Vehicle. No hassle with going to pick it up. It’ll be here waiting on you when you arrive. Included in off season rentals with a 5 night minimum stay.

MAIN HOUSE
The main house is a 1527 sq ft open floor plan with 2 bedrooms/2 baths. It is a one story home which features a 23’ x 21’ great room having an 18ft cathedral ceiling and is the ultimate spot for entertaining.

Each TV throughout the compound is equipped with Direct TV. The Master Bedroom has a King Bed with a TV/DVD player. The Master Bath features a garden tub and a full size glass enclosed stand up shower. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds. The Living Room offers 2 sofas of which one is a Queen Sleeper Sofa. The kitchen comes fully equipped and features all stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, and smooth-top range.

GUEST HOUSE
The guest house is a 2 story 1000 sq ft home with 2 bedrooms/1.5 bath. It also has an 18ft cathedral ceiling giving the home a larger feel. The Living room has a TV/DVD player. The downstairs and upstairs bedrooms feature a Queen size bed. The upstairs bedroom has a TV.

                    This is our families third year at Fawndango's. We really love it! This time we brought fishing poles and went surf-casting on the beach & also at Fort Walton Pier. So fun!!!! Thank you so much for providing such an awesome place to make memories. It's more than we could've asked for and we feel very fortunate to have found it.

                    Fawn, Thank you so much for letting us rent such a great beach house! We had a great time! We are renting this exact house next year. It was truly a great trip for the family. Thanks again! Best Wishes! Sincerely

                    Had a wonderful time! This is our 2nd summer at Fawndango's. It is perfect place for our crew of 14. The pool area & porches are great! The houses are comfortable and convenient to everything. The kids swim & go to the beach everyday. Hope to be back next year. Thanks

                    Fawndango's is the perfect setting for a large family. Fawn, the owner, keeps the home , the pool , and the landscape in great shape. The location is great, 1/3 mile walk to the beach, perfect for stretching those legs out after a day on the sand. Shops and local establishments are close by and easy to get to. The pool and deck area provides a relaxing scene after a long day at the beach. This is our 2nd year in Destin and it is truly one of the most relaxing places in our great country. We will be coming back and would definitely stay again at Fawndango's. The home worked really great for our family. Those families w/teenagers, the loft above the garage provides a nice escape for that generation. For those that like to stay up late, having the separation of living accomodations can provide nice flexibility for the group.

                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, tourists without a car, girls getaway, families with young children, age 55+, families with teenagers.

                    We absolutely loved our stay at Fawndango! We arrived on a Monday and had guests (our bridal party) trickling in throughout the week. With the airport only being roughly twenty minutes away this was no problem at all! The property allowed for our mixed group (11 people) to have lots of together time as well as providing us enough room to have alone time as well. The house was immaculate and has every small detail you can think of to enjoy your stay in Destin, Florida! The pool was wonderfully kept, and very relaxing! It was the perfect place to enjoy my morning coffee while working on my tan : ) The house is within walking distance to the beach (where we were married) which made for fun beach days and sunset walks on the beach. The houses are equipped with DVD players if you so choose, however we never used them! We deemed the loft to be the "man cave" for some of the bridal party but would be perfect for getaway for teens as well. The house is also near local shopping (everything is on one main drag) which made it pretty easy to find everything (even for someone who always gets lost!) Overall I have such wonderful memories of Fawndango: Family dinners at the house, walking to the beach (which has powder white sand and breathtaking turquoise blue water), getting ready for our ceremony in the guest house, and the fun of not being able to see my future groom even though he was on the same property! We definitely hope to visit Destin and Fawndango in the future! Thank you so much for being so wonderful Fawn! All the Best, Anne, Tony and the Johns' Family

                    My husband & I recently retired, and along with another couple became "snow birders" in Destin for the months of January & February. Fawndango's was the perfect property for two families to stay. It afforded both couples lots of privacy & together time as well. The two houses were joined by a lush yard/swimming pool giving us lots of opportunities to sit by the pool and visit; share meals in the evenings; or just hang out when we wanted company while still having privacy. Each house had good accommodations, we called the guest house our "warm & cozy" retreat & the main house "the place to entertain". The decor is as beautiful as the pictures indicate. Fawn has a flare for decorating. The homes have a "Florida feel" with unique pieces like a 10 foot palm tree & a unique wooden table that sits 10 comfortably. Destin is a great place to be as active as you want to be.....whether it is walking in the lovely neighborhood or taking a stroll on the beach, shopping, kayaking, riding bikes, or attending a concert at the Mattie Kelly Center we were constantly busy. Fawn saw to it that all of our needs were met & more, she was an absolute delight to work with, attentive to our every need. We had an exceptional stay. We have already signed up for next year & hope to be back for years to come! We would recommend Fawndango's to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in Destin.

                    Fawn, Thanks for a wonderful place to stay. You have thought of everything and then some! We left you an original carving Paul did from one of your trees. The "feet" are at the fireplace mantle on the floor. Thanks again and we will pass on the word to our friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
