Property description

You’ll enjoy a true beach vacation in this spacious, cottage-style home, just steps from the beach! This home is in the heart of Crystal Beach, a quiet, walkable neighborhood with white picket fences and easy access to shopping, restaurants and activities in Destin. Sirenia is a large home, sleeping up to 14, with a sunny private pool, and a separate carriage house. It’s perfect for large or multiple families, or folks who just want a lot of space to spread out.

The main house has a queen bedroom and a full bathroom downstairs, and upstairs you’ll find a large king master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a large bunkroom with 2 full-over-full bunk beds and a queen bed. The bunkroom also has a full bathroom attached. The separate carriage house has a king bedroom, a full bathroom, living area and kitchenette.

When you arrive, you’ll immediately appreciate the beach view from the front porch - Adirondack chairs invite you to relax and switch to vacation mode. Inside, you’ll find a large open living and dining area with plenty of comfortable seating and an HDTV and blue-ray player. The large dining table seats 8, and there is additional seating for 5 at the long bar. The fully-stocked kitchen is open to the living area and has new stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter space. You’ll find all the dishes, pans and utensils you may need, a Keurig D-Cup coffee maker, and even a few spices, to get you started. We want you to feel at home, and the large, open layout is a perfect gathering spot for your family or friends.

BEDROOM #1, Main Floor
Follow the extra-wide central hallway to the back of the home to find this lovely bedroom. It features a comfortable queen bed, a dresser, a roomy closet and a nightstand with lamp. You can relax in here with the HDTV and DVD player. There’s a full bathroom in the hallway next to this bedroom.

Bathroom #1, Main Floor
This spacious hall bathroom includes a commode, tub/shower combination, and a sink with an extra-large vanity. There are large fluffy bath towels, a personal hair dryer, and ample storage in this clean, bright bathroom.

BEDROOM #2 – King Master Suite, 2nd Floor with ensuite bathroom
Upstairs, at the front of the home, you’ll find the large, comfortable master bedroom with an inviting king bed, night stands and lamps. There is even a desk and an internet-connected PC in this room, in case you need to do a little work or check emails while on vacation. Plenty of windows bring in the light, and you have your own private access to the lovely balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee or relax after a day at the beach. There is also an HDTV with DVD player and a large dresser in this room, as well as a walk-in closet in the ensuite bathroom.

Bathroom #2 – Ensuite (King Master), 2nd Floor
This roomy bathroom features an extra-large vanity with double sinks and drawers, a linen closet, commode, bathtub and separate shower. You’ll appreciate the size and convenience of this bathroom, as well as the big fluffy bath towels and personal hair dryer.

BEDROOM #3 - DOUBLE BUNK ROOM, 2ND FLOOR with ensuite bathroom
Down the wide hallway from the Master Bedroom, this super-size bunk room features two full-over-full bunks (yes, that's 4 full-size beds!) and a sleeper sofa, so there’s room for up to 10 children. They will love having this space to hang out when they’re not outside enjoying the Destin sunshine. There’s a wall-mounted flat screen TV, two roomy closets and plenty of floor space to spread out. The bunk room also has its own private full bath.

Bathroom #3 – Ensuite (Bunk Room)
This bathroom is attached to the Bunk Room, and is equipped with a commode, vanity and sink and tub/shower combination. There is also a personal hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels for bunk room guests.
--------------------------------------------------------
CARRIAGE HOUSE
This lovely Carriage House is next to the private pool behind the main house. Inside you’ll find a comfortable living area with a queen sleeper sofa and kitchenette with small fridge, sink, toaster, coffee maker & microwave. A small table and chairs make a great spot for morning coffee or a snack. There’s also a Queen bedroom and full bathroom in this extra house, and you can just step outside to enjoy the pool!

BEDROOM #4 – QUEEN MASTER – CARRIAGE HOUSE
This beautiful, bright bedroom features a comfortable Queen bed and a large nightstand with reading lamp. You’ll have plenty of space to settle in with the large dresser, and there’s a big walk-in closet across from the full bathroom.

Bathroom #4 – (Carriage House)
This cheery bathroom includes a commode, sink and tub/shower combination. This bathroom is nice for guests sleeping in the Carriage House, and also very convenient when you’re spending time out by the pool. You’ll also find a personal hair dryer and big fluffy bath towels in this bathroom.
---------------------------------------------
PRIVATE POOL & BACKYARD
You’ll find the private, professionally maintained swimming pool nestled in the beautifully landscaped backyard. It’s all yours – enjoy it! There’s plenty of space to spread out around the pool with lounge chairs and 2 dining sets. A large gas grill on the back porch of the main house helps make dinners easy. There’s even a bistro table and chairs – another perfect spot for morning coffee or evening relaxing while grilling and watching the children in the pool.

OFF-STREET PARKING
This home has a driveway which accommodates 3-4 vehicles (depending on the size of the cars.) There is no on-street parking allowed in Destin.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Crystal Beach is the gold standard of Destin...no high-rise condominiums or beaches packed with 4 rows of vendor chairs. Crystal beach is mostly residential, which contributes to the quietness of the neighborhood. Just a few steps away is the Shirah Street beach access, and the larger ‘Shore at Crystal Beach Park’ with a pavilion and bathrooms is just a block from there.

Restaurants, activities and entertainment are also close-by. Destin Commons, a beautiful upscale shopping and entertainment center, is less than a half-mile away. It features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Bass Pro Shop, World of Beer, Panera Bread, Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl & Grill, AMC Theater with IMAX and much more. Local favorite, Camille’s, is an easy walk and The Crab Trap is about a mile east. You can bicycle, scooter, Jet ski and go para-sailing all within walking distance. The Silver Sands Outlet mall is not far for those who enjoy “retail therapy”!

The name of our home, Sirenia, comes from sirens - the singing sea creatures - and was chosen by our daughter and her friends.

We offer a small number of first-class vacation homes in Crystal Beach. If this home is not perfect for you, please see the link to 'All My Rental Listings' below. We own our homes and take exceptional care of them. No one offers better homes than we do. We're local and will stop by and say 'hi' so we have to be proud of our homes.

Owner info

About the owner: We have been part of VRBO since its early days, being long time friends and colleagues of the founder. We understand the 'by owner' nature of this business better than anyone, and go above and beyond to bring you a great home. We own these homes and are truly offering them 'by owner.' We are local and will meet you here, so we have to be proud of them. We also provide honest rates, and don't charge reservation or other junk fees. We keep our calendars up-to-date and typically reply to inquiries within minutes.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
Destin is one of the most popular vacation spots on VRBO for a reason - family oriented, amazing beaches, lots of attractions, shopping, and great seafood and fishing. We think the Crystal Beach community is hands-down the best Destin has to offer for families. It's quaint and quiet with cottage-style homes and white picket fences, sidewalks, nestled right on the beach, and lower density - no high-rise condos allowed. Crystal Beach is surrounded by Destin Commons and other multitudes of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment for the entire family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love our house because it is only steps from the beach, always kept clean, and is roomy and comfortable with new renovations and all new furniture in 2012. The private pool is relaxing, and a separate carriage house provides privacy for our friends and in-laws when they come down with us. We love the Crystal Beach community because we like to walk. Lower density, sidewalks, picket fences, and ocean views make walking a real treat in Crystal Beach.
