Crystal Beach house description

The Chesapeake Cottage

Quintessential Crystal Beach! This cottage-style home offers your family a beautiful setting, very close to the beach, and is surrounded by the best family-oriented attractions, entertainment, and dining that Destin has to offer.

This home is about comfort and quality accommodations - sleep 6 adults with up to 8 kids. No sleeper sofas - quality over quantity!

The home has been remodeled for a second time in less than a year. It is hand-down one of the nicest homes of its size in the neighborhood. New interior. New exterior. New decks. New central air conditioner so you're nice and cool in the summer. No detail left untouched. Photos are fresh, taken late spring 2014.

Families will find a like-new home, yet enjoy the experience of a well established vacation home that made Crystal Beach the highly desired beach-side cottage community that it is.

The spring 2014 reviews are in and everyone is raving about this home. See the review section below.

This home has been carefully setup with families and maximum guest comfort in mind. Three of the four bedrooms have a king bed to accommodate adults/parents, and the forth bedroom has a pair of built-in full-size (full-over-full) bunk beds.

The house is very close to the beach - one house off Scenic 98, with beach access on the same short block.

A private pool, set in one of the more beautiful back yards around, with lots and lots of new layered decks, adds to your vacation experience. We can heat the pool for you in the cooler months.

A short and easy stroll takes you to many well-known restaurants, frozen yogurt, and Marble Slab Creamery, or several beach-side restaurants.

And don't forget one of your family's most important members! We're pet friendly and welcome well behaved dogs (approval is required, nominal pet fee applies.)

*** Your Inquiries are Important ***
We take every inquiry seriously and reply to each personally. We enjoy speaking with guests and potential guests, so don’t hesitate to call us! If we don’t answer the phone, leave a message and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

*** You are Important ***
NO reservation fees, NO check-in fees, NO junk fees! We simply charge rent, cleaning, and tax. Nominal fees for pets and pool heat as applicable.

*** We're Crystal Beach Residents Too ***
You are renting from local owners who live in Crystal Beach full-time, which ensures you get a better quality home. We will greet you when you arrive and will be here should you need us during your stay.

This home is always clean, the linens will always be nice and fresh, and everything is impeccably maintained. You don’t have to worry about finding a home that's less than advertised.

*** The Crystal Beach Community ***
The Crystal Beach community in Destin is as good as it gets - cottage style homes with white picket fences and sidewalks, just outside is Destin Commons and entertainment for all ages is everywhere.

Your favorite Crystal Beach vacation awaits! Reserve this newly listed home before it’s too late.

We also own the two larger homes next door, right on Scenic 98, so we can accommodate large groups, wedding parties, etc. Perhaps the groom's family and friends take one house, and the bride's the other.

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 1993

          About: We are local, living in Crystal Beach ourselves, and own several vacation homes in the community.

          Why Crystal Beach:
          We own the two vacation homes next door, so it provides a lot of options for us and our guests. It's a very nice home in its own right as well, and is like-new after an extensive remodeling project late in the spring of 2013.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Three bedrooms with king beds, plus a forth bedroom with full-over-full bunk beds. This is a great home for several families to share, and has a nice private pool and is very close to the beach.
