Villages of Crystal Beach house description

NEW RENTAL, NEW CONSTRUCTION completed in November 2012. Great location in the neighborhood, closest to the beach, steps from the pool. A true gem to find in Destin. The neighborhood is tucked away from the hustle and bustle but convenient to everything! The house is beautifully decorated, a modern, coastal and airy feel with 4 bedrooms. First floor: huge king master with on-suite, cozy chaise lounge and baby friendly with pack-n-play provided in the closet. Queen sleeper sofa in family room. Second floor: 3 bedrooms including king master with on-suite. Queen room with balcony access (shared bath), full bed plus twin bunk beds (shared bath). Loft seating/TV area with balcony access. Laundry closet with brand new, FULL SIZE machines, on second floor. Kitchen has breakfast bar seating for 6 and dining table with seating for at least 6. Huge, SMART TV in family room that all men will love. House is family and baby friendly. Beach towels, toddler/baby toys, booster/highchair, pack-n-play, bocce ball set (to play at beach or sand volleyball court 2 doors down from house) are provided. Gorgeous community pool, the largest community pool in Destin, with zero entry- great for little ones, water falls and a Hot tub. Tiki bar party area and grill. Community has tram service to the beach during peak season (free!) which is convenient if you have kids, coolers, etc. The beach is a 5-10 minute 3 block walk. We are across the street from Destin Commons shopping center for great outdoor shopping, restaurants, movie theater and play area for kids with water spouts. The Villages of Crystal Beach is the perfect location in Destin. Whether you hang out at the pool and beach all day and order delivery, frequent the ice cream trucks or cook in the well stocked kitchen or man the infrared burn free grill, or take a walk to 790 on the gulf for happy hour and dinner, you will be happy you chose the Sandbar! We are within 5 miles of Harbor Walk to the west and the outlets/Sandestin to the east.
In case you get sun burned or have a rainy day, we have several books and games at the house. If you aren't convinced this is the house for you, other amenities incude a cart on wheels if you wish to forgo the tram ride and walk to the beach. A canopy to put up at the beach for some shade. A nice cup of coffee from our Keurig (or make a whole pot if you have lots of coffee drinkers). Your kids can enjoy a wagon ride to the pool and around the neighborhood. There is a church playground a few blocks away open for public use.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: We are Darrell and Sandy Donaldson and we live in Smyrna, GA. We love to travel but there is no place like the beautiful Emerald Coast! We have 2 small daughters (born in 2011, 2013) and are excited to have a place to take them in the summer and holidays and share with our family and friends! We hope you enjoy The Sandbar as much as we do! Good times, good family, good friends, good memories! That's what its all about. Cheers!

          Why the Owner Chose Villages of Crystal Beach:
          We looked at several areas and options all around the Emerald Coast. We love the quiet and have stayed in 30A but were always looking for more places to shop and dine without having to drive far. The traffic and hustle and bustle near Harborwalk and the condos always seemed too crowded in what we knew of Destin. The Villages of Crystal beach was the answer! We were so lucky to find a neighborhood with that peaceful, 30A feel but so close to so much dining, shopping and fun things to do here in Destin. Once we saw the pool and knew their were lots available for new construction, the rest was history!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We love the Smart TV and ordering Netflix, before we had that we loved using Redbox and there are at least 3 super close to our house. We love the beachy decor that isn't in your face pink/teal like so many of the older homes or red/tan traditional that doesn't feel like a beach house. The open kitchen is awesome, being able to talk to everyone and see the TV, so you don't miss any quality time. We get sort of addicted to Yahtzee in the evenings at the Sandbar......
