Property description

'MIA' is located in the highly desirable gated community of The Villages of Crystal beach, south of Highway 98. Very close to restaurants and great shopping, MIA is located at the end of a quiet street inside the development. The beautiful white sands of Crystal Beach are a 5 - 8 minute walk from the neighborhood and are never over crowded with no high rises. Beach access and parking are easy and chair rentals are affordable. Paradise in the middle of town !

MIA has had a complete and total renovation as of October 2014. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a sparkling clean home that has been professionally decorated. Freshly painted in tones of cream, oyster, and pale blue invoke feelings of the beach and water. The open floor plan features a kitchen, dining, and living room combination that flows well and has many windows for great natural lighting complimenting the high ceilings to the refinished creamy marble floors. The gourmet kitchen overlooking the living room, makes cooking and entertaining a breeze. The kitchen is complete with stainless steel appliances, custom finished cabinets, brown granite counters, and an island that seats four with new barstools. The dining room contains a large round glass top table with eight blue leather dining chairs. The luxurious living room offers seating for eight and new comfortable oyster gray designer sofas and accent chairs for enjoying the 55 inch television. One of the sofas opens into a queen size sofa sleeper with a thick gel mattress and offers comfortable sleeping for even an adult. Curl up and watch a movie or take an afternoon nap after a relaxing day on the beach.

Downstairs features a lovely ' Tropical ' master suite with a plush king size bed, large walk in closet, custom lamps, marble topped night stand and new linens. Soft new carpeting is the base for this paradise theme bedroom. Adjacent is the downstairs bathroom containing a new vanity offering storage and the largest marble walk in shower we have ever seen ! New fluffy white towels and gleaming fixures complete this bathroom. Across the hall is a large laundry room with a kenmore washer and dryer, added storage space and a side entry door that leads to an exterior shower for washing off sand.

As you ascend the stairs to the marble upstairs hallway, you are greeted by one of the many large oversize custom mirrors that adorn MIA. At one end of the hallway is what we like to call our ' Contemporary ' bedroom. Featuring a queen size, light elm platform bed finished in high gloss, matching side chests and TV cabinet with large drawers for storage. Pear green and charcoal gray accents and bedding compliment the cream colored walls. Groovy custom lamps, new linens & carpeting, as well as a large closet make this room comfortable and cozy. Across the hall you will find the upstairs bathroom painted a light blue with lovely silver accents and new fixtures complimenting its marble surrounded bath tub.

A few steps down the hall and you will find the ' Hideaway ' bedroom. New furniture and ceiling fan make this room feel bright and airy. A custom painted chest of drawers and night stand highlights this petite room that features a new double bed , new linens, and carpeting. A few steps down the hallway and you will find the door leading to the oversized balcony patio with iron table and chairs for outdoor dining and relaxation.

The massive Master suite is grand in scale and design. Contemporary furnishings and artwork complement the soft light blue walls. Accented with custom lamps , this room is decorated in tones of cream and brown. A memory foam king size bed with new linens helps this room to offer comfort and relaxation. Featuring new carpeting, this room also houses what we like to call the 'Owners Retreat' . A sitting room off to the side of the room contains a new queen size sofa sleeper with thick gel mattress and lets parents an escape from the kids. This suite is large enough to house a crib if necessary and features a large walk in closet. The master bath is complete with a jetted bath tub, double marble topped vanities and lots of cabinets. AHHHH, your on vacation !

Mia's owners have paid extra attention to detail with every bedroom having ceiling fans, televisions, new linens and carpeting as well as new artwork and decor. New pillows and upgraded mattresses insure a restful nights sleep and sweet dreams of the beach! A new stainless steel gas grill is located on the downstairs patio for your outdoor cooking needs. Custom finishes and designer touches throughout MIA set her apart from other sterile rentals with no appeal or personality.

The Villages of Crystal Beach features the largest swimming pool in Destin with numerous waterfalls, tropical landscaping and a shared Tiki bar that is available by reservation for small gatherings or cookouts. Watch the game on one of the outdoor televisions under the Tiki bar while grilling. The bubbling hot tub and huge palm trees with up lighting at night make this a great place to unwind or switch gears !

Mia has two available off street parking spots in front of the house as well as additional parking nearby.
During the spring and summer seasons, the Sandy Express Trolley service will transport you and your guests to the beach free of charge. MIA offers guests a complimentary initial set up of basic necessities, in case of late night arrivals ! MIA is calling you to the beach and to enjoy her new furnishings. Are you ready to embrace the sandy shores of Destin and come home with new memories of fun and relaxation? We hope to see you soon.

Why the Owner Chose Villages of Crystal Beach:
Going to the beach with family was always the highlight of the summer and Destin, Fl was our destination. When the opportunity presented itself for us to have a home In Destin, we jumped on the chance. We were attracted to the new construction, the custom plumbing and lighting fixtures, the travertine flooring and the beautiful kitchen. The well maintained Village of Crystal Beach community was also a huge factor in our decision to buy property in Destin. Now going to the beach isn't only something we do in the summer but all year round.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While visiting Destin, we enjoy dining at our favorite restaurants, sunrise or sunset walks, cooking, playing Golf at Kelly Plantation or tennis at San Destin or Tops'l, boutique, antique and/or bargain shopping, walking though the many beach side communities down 30A and just days when we have our toes in the sand. At home we enjoy the spaciousness of the house, the ease of entry into the home, the safe environment, the children playing safely in the streets and the residential family environment.
