About: Our family has vistied the Destin area for several years now we love the emerald beaches and all the attractions of the area. The guys love the deep sea fishing and the girls love the shopping.
We finally decided last year instead of renting, to purchase our own home.
Why Villages of Crystal Beach: We decided upon Villages of Crystal Beach because we loved the location and the design of the homes. The gated community and beautiful lagoon style pool were also a big attraction. The new construction was an added bonus because we could put our own personal touch on our home away from home. This is a perfect vacation home for our family. We hope you will enjoy it as well.
