                        This was our 3rd visit to Crystal Pearl. The house is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. Beach access is just around the corner. There are beach chairs, beach buggy and umbrella provided for the beach. The backyard with pool is wonderful when you need a break from the beach. The location is perfect with restaurants, shopping and activities close by. Linda has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. It's like taking the comforts of home with you on vacation. We can't wait for our next trip to Crystal Pearl.

                        Stayed at Crystal Pearl for 10 days over the holidays and loved the house and location. Close to everything and balconies great for watching sunsets over the ocean. Linda was super helpful answering any questions we had and helping us choose local spots. House had everything we needed and more. Kids loved the heated pool and bigger kids loved the beach. We hope to come back every year!

                        I stayed here for a week with my girl friends and we all had a great time. there was lots of room for the 7 of us and we could all find our own private space as needed. The back yard pool is very private with the fencing all around. Destin beaches are beautiful (and empty) in late September and we walked the beach every day after stopping for breakfast at Camilles (great smoothies!). House had tons of dishes, towels, nice linens, etc.. and even had beach chairs for us on the back porch. Also lots of beach toys back there but we didn't need those. All in all a great stay and we hope to return next year!

                        We just returned home from a wonderful week at Crystal Pearl. There is nothing that you could possibly want for that is not provided at this house. There are tons of spices, flour, coffee, creamer, dishes, towels, everything. Each morning we enjoyed our cofffee and toast out on the covered porch in the rockers. There is plenty of seating both inside and out. You are just a short 1 block walk to the beach. The house is super close to several Walmarts and Publix stores for groceries as well as every other type of shopping you could want. Two nice Antique stores off South Holiday Road. We would definitely rent this house again.

                        The house was just ok as far as cleaniness goes -- the tub and sink were totally clogged and I had to call to get them cleared - cannot understand how the cleaning person wouldn't notice that - there were also a quite a few large palmetto bugs in the house (at least two every day) which made everyone uneasy the entire time (especially the girls). The rugs were dirty in the loft area and the kitchen (not sure why a rug would be in the kitchen anyway) We were told the house was one block to the beach which was true except for the fact that you couldn't get a spot to sit since the area was restricted to people staying at the hotels on the beach so we had to pay $6 per carload to go to Henderson State Park. The adverstising was very deceiving and we were really disappointed in that. The beach in Destin is beautiful but the area is way too crowded and commercial for our particular taste. We almost got killed twice on 98 due to reckless drivers. I don't think we would go back again.

                        This Destin vacation spot is perfect for a family with teens. We vacationed with 7 pre- & early teens who thoroughly enjoyed the location, backyard pool, proximity to the beach & shopping etc. (The beach is gorgeous with perfect white sand and the color of the Gulf is mesmerizing.) The house itself was extremely clean and the perfect size. It had enough room for our large group, with many private areas just right for our teens. The rooms were more than adequate in size and furnished with high-end mattresses and linens. The kitchen had all the necessities for the cooks in our group. We had no problems with the house or its amenities. Wi-Fi was one of the most important features for our teens. The in-ground pool provided a second opportunity for everyone to enjoy the water. Its location - in the sun in the morning and in the shade in the afternoon and lit at night - perfect. The detached guest house, as a separate structure, provided comfort to our southern family members. They required and wanted much less AC than northern family members. We all definitely recommend this house & location in Destin.

                        The Crystal Pearl was the perfect house for our visit to Destin. Having all the bedrooms on the second and third floors was great for putting smaller children to bed, while others wanted to hang out downstairs and around the pool. The back yard was perfect for hanging out, and the screened in porch was quite possibly my favorite part of the house. The house was clean and stocked with bath towels and cooking equipment. The house also is within great walking distance to the beach and a church park. You could even walk to the local surf shop and outdoor mall. We also visited the coffee shop every morning for coffee and smoothies. The house is located close to everything without being in an overcrowded area. We would stay again!

                        Crystal Pearl house was amazing. We had 2 families and 4 small children under the age of 5. The house was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed. The house is located on a quiet street, that has almost no traffic. Also, the yard to the house is totally fenced in, so the kids could play outside no problem. The house has a great BBQ Pit, a grill and and outdoor shower so it makes it easy to come in from the beach. It was a 5 minute walk to the beach, but easy to do if you bring your red wagons! The kitchen was equiped with everything you need to cook in, and speciality items for grilling. We even found a bucket of beach toys, a float for the pool an umbrella for the beach. We will plan to stay here again next year!! Loved it!

                        We spent a week in this place and we were very happy about it. The facility is really spacious (3 families with babies fit in there easily) and very well equipped (e.g. lots of kitchen utensils, beach toys, lcds with dvd players in every bedroom, nice bed sheets etc.). There is a nice and clean pool in the backyard. The public beach is in 5 mins walk from the house. In 3 mins drive there is a variety of stores and dinning places in the nearby shopping centre. During the whole week we didn't have a single issue with the facility and we enjoyed the stay a lot. I would highly recommend this place to my best friend!

                        My husband and I spent a fantastic two weeks here and are already talking about when we can return. The location is perfect with the beach, restaurant and bars on your doorstep. All the information provided by the owners was completely accurate and it's as though they have rented out their home to you not just a holiday rental.

                        Owner response: Hi Amanda. We are so glad that you enjoyed yourself and that the location was perfect for you. Hope we see you guys again soon!!
