                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: Tom is a retired USAF officer who then worked for a defense contractor in the Ft Walton Beach area for 21 years, retiring in 2012. Brenda is a career homemaker: they have 3 married children, 8 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandsons. 'Beaches 'n Dreams' is their only rental property.

                      Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
                      We love the beach and the Destin area. We purchased 'Beaches 'n Dreams' so we would have a place by the beach to use when it isn't rented and so we have a house where we can have our children and grandchildren stay when they come to visit. Brenda has gone out of her way to ensure all the little things are available in the house to make your vacation at the beach a happy, home-like experience rather than having the 'feel of a hotel.'

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      It is a very short walk to the beach - dedicated beach access is directly at the end of our street (we are 3 houses from the beach access point). It is also a short 10-minute walk to restaurants like the 'Outback, 'O'Quigley's Irish Pub,' and the 'Marble Slab' ice cream store.
