Property description

** Crystal Mansion **

A beautiful luxury home for 5-6 families with children, or up to 18-20 adults max.

Welcome to your favorite beach home in Crystal Beach! This home has just received some big upgrades, including new paint & furniture in the Kitchen/Living/Dining spaces and new beds throughout. Your group will appreciate having 7 BEDROOMS and 5 FULL BATHROOMS. There are now a total of 5 King Masters Bedrooms, and a bedroom with 3 Queen beds and another with 2 sets of full-over-full bunk beds (yes, that's 4 full-size beds). You can see why we have many guests who return to this home every year!

This amazing home has everything you could want and more in a luxury vacation home for a large group – a huge custom kitchen, inviting living, dining and gathering spaces, and an incredible private pool and back yard. There’s a separate 2-story carriage house and spacious outdoor grilling and dining area… all just steps away from the pristine white sand of Crystal Beach.

We keep this home clean and well updated, and pay attention to amenities that you expect, such as high-speed wireless internet, high definition cable TV, big, fluffy bath towels and hair dryers in each bathroom, and more. We also provide items our smaller guests may need like a high chair and pack-n-play.

Owner info

Sugar Palm Vacation Rentals

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We know 'by owner' vacation rentals better than anyone, having been part of VRBO since its earliest days. We own these homes and are not managing them for others. These are high-end, very well maintained homes, not just rentals. We live in Destin and greet all our guests, so we want to be proud of these homes.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Destin, FL, USA:
All of Destin's beaches are just amazing, but the Crystal Beach community is lower-density than other areas in Destin - no high-rise condos. It feels more like a quaint neighborhood with its white picket fences and sidewalks rather than a loud, busy resort area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Two-story carriage house, two master suites, huge kitchen, high level of finish, larger than average private pool for Crystal Beach, almost right on the beach.
