Crystal Beach house description

'Over the Top' ... not a better name for a house in Destin! There's a 4th floor deck 'over the top' of the house with amazing 360 degree panoramic views (highest deck in Crystal Beach!) The finish level and detail in this upscale home is also 'over the top.' You will have a fantastic week in our 'Over the Top' house.

Very close to the beach! The beach is right across the street.

There is no doubt that this is the home to rent in Destin's Crystal Beach Area!

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We are the proud new owners of 'Over the Top' in Destin's Crystal Beach. We are excited to offer this amazing beach home, and know your family will appreciate all the features of this home. No one knows the 'by owner' vacation rental business better than we do. We are fortunate to have been part of VRBO since its earliest days, and are honored to host you in any of our several vacation homes.

                  Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
                  After being regular visitors to Destin for more than two decades, we decided we wanted to invest in above-average homes, and keep them in top shape. These are not 'just rentals' that we minimally maintain. We live in Destin now, and greet all our guests, so we want to be proud of these homes. All of Destin's beaches are just amazing, but the Crystal Beach community is lower-density than other areas in Destin - no high-rise condos. It feels more like a quaint neighborhood with its white picket fences and sidewalks rather than a loud, busy resort.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  4 floors of exterior decks, outstanding 4th floor observation deck. Outstanding private pool. Gulf front beach is directly across the street. White sand beaches, you just can't beat them! Crystal clear Emerald water. World class dining, shopping, fishing, and golfing!
