Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Living in small town north Georgia, I love the outdoors with our meandering creeks, lakes and wooded hillsides. People always speak a friendly greeting when meeting on the streets. Play time is especially important to my family and outdoor sports are our calling. We love our home and really enjoy our get aways with the gulf breezes and relaxing play at our home away from home in Destin.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
The beaches of South Walton with their crystal white sands, a village of friendly and cordial locals, commanded my attention when we discovered Destin, FL. Nantucket Cottages is situated to resemble a little community of cottages amidst a neighborhood of larger beach homes and condominiums with a quaint private atmosphere. meandering sidewalks shaded by Palms and natural shrubs running through the center of the complex to the private pool and laundry facility. Nantucket Cottage 8A has a beach view yet a private courtyard atmosphere when relaxation is the call of the day.The friendliness of the beach locals keeps us returning as we feel as though visiting long time friends.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The old fishing village of Destin is harbor to some of the finest hourly and daily fishing in the panhandle. The daily catch may be prepared right at home in your kitchenette or dine out at an array of restaurants with shopping galore to meet any taste or budget within walking distance and beyond. Water and play parks, antique malls, local artists, music venues and many fine Golf courses are available a few short miles away. Para-sailing, boat rentals, volleyball and soft crystal white sands for play and sunbathing are just across the beach drive Scenic 98. Destin is one of the few places in the country where FlyBoard water jet flying is available. Sandcastle Escapes Concierge services provides area information along with bike and beach chair rental for your convenience. Relax after a busy day by the private pool away from the crowds then retire in you comfy cottage with 2 bunks and a separate bedroom with queen bed off the living room all decorated beach style to enhance your vacation experience.
