Private Homes cottage description

'Casa Cruz' is a cozy 1000 sq. foot cottage located on the shoreline of Destin's Choctawhatchee Bay. Our recently renovated two story cottage has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths plus an outdoor shower. The second floor king master has an adjoining half bath with a kid's bunk room containing 2 twin beds. The downstairs queen bedroom adjoins the full bath. There is also a sofa sleeper in the living room.

Swim or fish from our private pier or dock your jet skis or boat after a day at Crab Island. For non-motorized fun, try our 3 kayaks or stand up paddleboard. Take our 3 bicycles with kid's tow behind trailer to Sandestin for a picnic on JoLee Island. Let the kids play on shore in the kid's play area with large swingset or swim in the shallow, sandy waters under our pier.

Relax while watching the sunset in the swing and roast marshmellows after dark in the fire pit by the shore. Located in a peaceful neighborhood on a dead-end street with less than 10 homes, serenity is what you get at Casa Cruz.

If you are looking for shopping, dining, or nightlife, Sandestin Resort is only a five minute drive. The emerald surf and sugar white beaches are also just five minutes away.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: My husband and I are busy professionals who live in Biloxi, Mississippi with our two year old son. I have a small law practice and he is a pilot in the Air Force Reserve. We enjoy spending time at Casa Cruz and would like to share it with others while we are not using it. This extra income would afford us the opportunity do some traveling before our son starts school.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We have been vacationing at Sandestin for years. Each time we visited, we would look at the real estate but were turned off by the apartment-like setting of a condo and the strict rules and stiff fees of the HOA's in Sandestin. When this property came available, we knew it was everything we were looking for. It is very close to Sandestin so that we are able still enjoy the amenities, but far enough away to still be peaceful and serene.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Casa Cruz is located on a half acre lot with plenty of parking, a grass lawn for outdoor games, picnic area and grill for a family barbeque, private pier for docking your boat or PWC (please discuss water depth limitations with owners prior to bringing your boat). Since we have a two year old, we have most of the big, bulky toddler essentials that make traveling so tough. We have a high-chair, bed guards, safety gate for top of stairs, indoor and outdoor toys, beach equipment, wagon, and tow-behind bike trailer.
