Upon our arrival to this vacation home in Destin, FL, we walked on to a wraparound porch and into the beach house called Sunny D. While we knew we had made a good choice early on, we immediately realized the pictures of the property just didn’t do this place justice. The bunk room with its Xbox 360 was a hit with the boy cubs. The tower room was perfect for our princess cub who wanted to get away from her little brothers. Papa and Nana Bear had their own separate casita to retire to for the night. We enjoyed having the outdoor shower to clean up before we came inside. The wraparound porch was perfect for eating ice cream in the evenings. The bedding was heavenly. Best of all the gear! This place is set up for a family with plenty of bear cubs. Strollers, pack n play, sand chairs, umbrellas, lots of sand toys, and even an awesome cart to tote it all down to the beach. The beach cruiser bikes were a delight to ride a block to the white sandy beaches. The place was professionally decorated but still felt like our home away from home! Everything was cub friendly which we appreciated even more since we were able to relax.

About the owner: We've both grownup on along the beach. West Coast for me and North East Coast for my husband, but nothing compares to the world famous sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters of Destin. Friends introduced our family to Destin in 2005 and we fell in love, hoping to one day own a beach house that we could share with family, old friends, and new friends. From our family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and make lasting memories to cherish.
Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach: Crystal Shores at Crystal Beach is a pristine neighborhood with a sense of quiet community. You'll see neighbors riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and waving hello from behind their white picket fences.
