                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My husband and I grew up in Florida and raised our 3 teenagers there until just a few years ago. The beaches alway called out to us to come back. We were pleasantly surprised at just how beautiful the Northwest coast of Florida is compared to the Northeast! We were coming back so often we gave in and bought a second home. A few months later we decided to by a rental property for when we had family come to visit. Now you have a place for your hole family to get together!

                  Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
                  This house just has such a Florida feel to it that we feel in love with it the first time we walked through it! Bright colored walls in every room. And we've added none cheese Floda feeling photos, bedding, and such around the house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I love that each room has it's own balcony and the huge deck on the 3rd floor (which I have put ample comfy seating on) over looking the normal size pool...so many rentals have tiny pools! And it's so nice to have the seperate pool house to either put the crazy teenagers in or the grandparents. Oh yeah, and the yard is pretty big, so you don't feel like the neighbors are right on top of you, and you can actually play yard games in. And it's not far from the beach! Just a short walk.
