About Danette Torres
Hi my name is Danette. I live in Wyoming. I have been a property owner since 1990 and a landlord since 1991. I thought I would try something other then long term rentals, so I purchased a short term vacation rental in a place that I may retire to some day. It truly is a beautiful home in a beautiful place! Enjoy yourself! Think Beach! Put your toes in the sand and soak up the sun! Live, Laugh, Love!
Danette Torres purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Danette Torres chose Crystal Beach
I love Crystal Beach Village community! It is the best vacation spot in Destin! The Lagoon style pool makes this place feel like a resort. It had plenty of space to accommodate us, my sister Kim's family from Atlanta & Wyoming, and of course our dear moms! It was Important to have at least one main floor bedroom and bathroom for our mothers.
What makes this Villa unique
It is only 2 blocks from the beautiful Crystal Beach with blue water and white sand! It was in immaculate condition with lots of bedrooms and baths to accommodate our large family. Love the Mediterranean style of the home with archways and balconies.

Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The house was laid out well for the people we had along. We had 6 teenage boys along, and groups of 3 had their own floor, which was nice.
The complex had way too many people running around the streets at all hours of the day and even night. The pool area is very very small so the pictures are extremely misleading. We never received pool bands, but would not have gone anyway due to the 10k little kids populating it.
The house itself was nice, but there are barely enough towels provided so you have to do laundry often. You better bring kitchen staples like foil and saran wrap, and maybe a large skillet because the ones provided are just way too small to cook for 8+ people.
The grill would have been great to have, but did not ever get warm even with all burners on high.
The cockroaches in the kitchen were disgusting. The property owner quickly had the pest guy out, but two days later the roaches we're back. Gross.
Finally, the check in process was extremely frustrating. I asked the property manager multiple times to tell me what the process was, and was ignored. They don't tell you that they will email you a link with the access code. It's just too bad if you don't have internet service when you get there. I never did get the link to work and ended up calling the property manager directly to get the access code. NOT fun after a 15 hour drive!
I should have known this property was a pass when there was zero cancellation policy even when booking weeks in advance. That was a definite red flag.
In summary: only stay here if you love lots of people loitering around, love tons of kids, and enjoy cockroaches crawling on your countertops. I'm sure the roaches are a complex issue because the place itself seemed pretty clean.
Overall it was okay for what we paid. The pictures make everything look amazing.
Overall it was nice. The linens were pretty basic so I'm glad we brought our own blankets. There were way too many college kids around us and it got really loud at night. The community pool was very small and filled with college kids so we didn't get to go. This was a family vacation so it would have been helpful to know that the majority of the houses would be occupied by drunk college kids.
Also, the house needed some TLC. There were come issues with the water pressure and it didn't seem as nice as the pics.
We also didn't receive good communication from the owner before arriving. I sent multiple messages prior to our arrival and didnt hear back from her. We also never received the code to get into the property. I had to call her 2x before I was able to get a hold of her for the info. So we were outside the house for a little bit. Just a small inconvenience.
Had a great time, house was execellent, clean and well kept. Close to everything, will be back!!!!
Beautiful beaches, Beautiful home, enjoyed my stay, will be back!!!
The property was nice except the washer being broke and having to go to the laundromat as well buy towels for the duration of the stay. Total inconvenience since this is one of the amenities you pay for. A $4000 rental should have working washer. It is obvious that the washer had not been working for several weeks.
Great place. Easy walk to pool. Beach is not too far to walk, but even better was the shuttle. Only complaints are the parking is too small for such a big place and since the houses are so close together, other people's noises were sometimes bothersome.
Great neighborhood! The pool is fabulous!!
The home is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. All of the beds were very comfortable. The only negative is the parking. The rental accommodates two vehicles and extra parking for more vehicles is a premium. Will definitely stay here again when we return to Destin!!
