About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13-17)

Be forewarned - you are going to fall in love with Salty Dog, and leaving will be a hard trick to learn. The scored concrete floors are a modern twist, as are the tropical shades that greet you on the walls. Butter suede couches just beg you to relax, while contemporary fixtures and furnishings let you know you are inhabiting a work of art.

Arched doorways, modern appliances and a large dining room are just a few of the attractions of the living areas. Simple lines and gorgeous bedding combine to make each of four bedrooms a welcoming haven for those lucky enough to reside here awhile. Beautiful tile floors and spacious bathrooms ensure plenty of room for a large group. This place must be reserved to be fully appreciated. Don’t forget to plan some poolside fun in your privately fenced back yard.

About The Clark Family

My husband and I love the beach!!!!! We both grew up in coastal towns and living in Atlanta missed the Ocean terribly, so after getting married decided to build a beach house. We had fallen in love with Destin's beaches so it was a clear choise, we started construction in late 2004 and were ready to enjoy our 1st summer in 2005.

Since then, we have had wonderful times with friends and family at our Salty Dog House!!!!!

And have had the pleasure of sharing it with some great families through the VRBO listing, it is great to have the same families come back summer after summer!!!

The Clark Family purchased this house in 2005

Why The Clark Family chose Crystal Beach

We chose Crystal Beach for its location! The Salty Dog House is close to everything!

2 blocks from the Beach, 2 blocks from the Grocery Store, 2 blocks from the Mall, 1 block from the gas station, 2 blocks from great restaurants, etc

Super convenient location!!!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay this year at the Salty Dog. The house was decorated with such a fun flair. The kitchen such a efficient layout. It was nice to have all the lovely utensils to make cooking a pleasure. We found the house very comfortable. We certainly will be down there again. It was also nice to have a pool right in the backyard. My family always enjoys the beach and later the pool. Its always nice to stay in a new house. Each room was decorated so tastefully. We can't wait to come back.

After the drive with kids ranging from 2 to 19 ... it was really tiring, but once we got to the house we were ALL able to unwind and relax. The house was really clean and well kept, the kids enjoyed the pool as much as the beach. I LOVE the fact that it is in a quite neighborhood and close to everything we needed, the BEACH, the stores, the restaurants, etc.... This was our first family vacation, and I do not regret renting this house. We enjoyed our vacation and the house so much we did not want to leave. The owners are very nice, friendly and understanding. We had no problems with anything in the house. THIS HOUSE IS ON MY LIST OF RENTAL FOR OUR NEXT FAMILY VACATION !!!!

Fun for the whole pack...from ages 4 to 74!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 11 were quite comfortable to sit by the pool or walk to the beach, coming and going as they pleased. The Salty Dog had most everything we needed...well stocked kitchen, laundry, grill, televisions for all and plenty of space for children and adults . Maintenance came by the first day to correct a couple of things noted by the cleaning crew, that was a great help.. We were able to enjoy the area/each other /the house and the Clarks were wonderful.

It's only a few blocks from the beach and the pool is extremely fun to play in. The house is so comfortable for up to 4 families or more. I know that my family and I enjoyed our amazing stay at the Salty Dog house.

Great week at the salty dog!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at his house has been a great experience! Lots of room, high ceilings, and natural light. At just 2 blocks from the beach and with a nice sized pool there is so much to do! All is good working order with a washer, dryer and all needed amenities. Minutes drive from the outlets and other Destin attractions.

Wonderful Destin Trip

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Destin home for the week. The backyard, pool, and close location to the beach were just PERFECT for our needs. Adriana was a pleasure to coordinate everything with and was especially accommodating to our group since we were booking at the last minute.

Great for Friends and Family

  • 5 of 5

My trip here is with the owners and pups and me and my Pup was invited along. Quiet location, easy access to the beach walking distance. Beach is not too crowded and clean with life guards. Shopping is real nearby along with Dining. Pool is great and interior design is great with big rooms. It's all about hanging and having a good time here. It's all good!
