We do our best to provide beach chairs, portable cooler and a rugged red wagon to pull the kiddies to and on the beach.
We have also upgraded the home with a state of the art security and sensor system. The system will notify you of any access to the pool area and the keyless door lock system will allow you access to the home by entering a code that we will program especially for your stay. When you arrive in Destin, you will not have to check-in at a management agency, you will go right to the home and start your vacation right away.
We make the reservation process simple and convenient. We are always accessible by phone and email - you will not find more responsive owners, and you certainly will not find a rental management company who can provide you with the level of service and care that we can.
When you are ready to make your reservation with us, simply give us a call to secure your vacation. We require a $750 security deposit to be paid by credit or debit card at the time of the booking. We will then email you a detailed Rental Agreement so we can be sure we are on the same page regarding rates, dates, and rules. Your full payment will be due 60 days prior to your arrival, and can be made directly online through the Intuit Payment Network from your checking or savings account. Alternately, you can make the full payment using your credit card for an additional 3% fee.
Now that you have found the perfect beach house for your family vacation, you can end your tireless Internet search and call us today to book your family's dream vacation at Crystal Dreams!
