About Ocean Reef

For over thirty-five years Ocean Reef has distinguished itself as the leading vacation rental property management company on the Emerald Coast. Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach. Steeped in a tradition of hospitality and exemplary service, we pride ourselves on providing an unmatched vacation experience.

Why Ocean Reef chose Crystal Beach

Crystal Beach is home to colorful classic-styled beach cottages, intimate condominium buildings, white picket fences, meandering sidewalks and quaint eateries. This community is family-centric and here, the unwinding is easy! But don’t think excitement isn’t on the menu though as this area features the Destin Commons – home to upscale shopping, multiple dining options and venues ideal for entertaining the entire family. Additionally, two of the most highly rated golf courses, Kelly Plantation and Regatta Bay, are just seconds away. Crystal Beach is a wonderful location due to the fact that it’s directly between Downtown Destin, and Miramar Beach. Head to Downtown Destin to explore Destin’s historic harbor district. You can see all the fresh catches coming from the Gulf, and dine at the locally owned restaurants along the harbor to get a taste of the wonderful seafood Destin is known for. If you head east to Miramar Beach you will find Silver Sands Outlets. Silver Sands is the largest outdoor outlet mall in the country. Perfect spot for the shopper in your group! Also check out Baytowne Wharf for a fun time the whole family can enjoy.

Beautiful House. Great outdoor kitchen area.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great week. Only one complaint- twice we had repair men in our house without prior knowledge. A heads up would have been nice. A little strange that a repair man is walking out the front door when pull up. Also, wife is getting out of the shower when he is needing to repair the windows in the master. Really!

Great location but lots of other issues not so great‼️

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location of the home, right across the street from the beach entrance. The pool was a great addition for grandkids after a tiring day at the beach. And I must say the internet services were fantastic with as many as we had online. But there were LOTS of things that were not satisfactory.

AC isn't sufficient....... We were extremely cool on the first floor (living, dining, kitchen area) but cannot say the same for the upstairs sleeping areas. The fact that there was no thermostat on the main sleeping floor was a poor feature. It was extremely warm and humid feeling in the evenings when a cool sleeping environment would've been better. There was not an issue with AC, as we kept it on 72 as directed. It just wasn't adequate for the bedrooms. We did locate one fan that helped. We were glad we had a kitchen to cook, but appliances are not the best. Refrigerator/freezer didn't reach their maximum cool setting until day 2. Drinks, etc were not cool and freezer items we bought didn't stay frozen. A statement on the refrigerator says allow for this, but that is not practical since we needed refrigerated items the first 24 hours. Also, the quality of the stackable washer/dryer was not such that got clothes clean and rid of beach sand despite our pre-washing of clothes outside prior to washing machine.

The description says it will will BUT 8 of our 14 were kids and we still had to buy an air mattress and sleep doubled up in a twin bunk. The sleeping arrangements are ideal for 3 couples and 3-4 children. After that, you will have to be creative and quite crowded to sleep more.

The keyless door entry was a mess the first two days. We had to call 3 different times to get a new code to get in as we were locked out. FINALLY we received a code that got us through the week.

Again, great location....but we will not stay at this property again. It didn't work for our family.

Great house but NOT 4 bedrooms

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The house is well maintained and the location is great! The house is advertised as 4 bedrooms but it is really a 3 bedroom home. They put twin bunk beds in a closet and I believe are calling that a bedroom? The 3rd floor room with the other bed is a safety issue I believe. The mattress is the size of a crib mattress and is elevated at least 4 ft off the ground. I would not feel safe with my kids sleeping up there. I guess you could move this mattress to the floor but you would still run into the problem of someone fitting on this bed.

Owner's Response: Kelli, thanks for staying with us. We are glad that you had a good experience. We are sorry that the 4th bedroom was a bit small for your group. It's really more of a "bunk room" than a bedroom. We do apologize for the confusion. We hope to see you back on the beach next year. Just give us a call when you are ready to return.
