              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: The beach house of Stress Relief is my family's second home. We have lots of photos of not only our family reunions there, but of our repeating guests. I love having wedding groups and family reunions that return each year. It is rewarding to be a part of so many memories being made. Judy Bernard and the Bernard family

              Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
              The neighborhood of Crystal Beach is the quiet, family area of Destin. I love being just 2 minutes to get into the water. In the summertime, the traffic along Hwy 98 is heavy, and from my house, you don't need to drive to go to the grocery, convenience, or souvenir shops. They are a block away. Within a 4 block walk, you will find a bowling alley, sports bar, casual and fine dining and the Destin Commons Mall with it's arena theatre and more shopping.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The beach house provides lots of space for large families. 5 of the 6 bedrooms have king beds. 4 of the 6 bedrooms have private baths. With a big group, the 3 full kitchens do come in handy. The private heated pool is a fun way to cool off or play a volleyball game. It can be heated for $30 daily. The hot outdoor shower is perfect for rinsing off the white sand from the beach.
