Well kept home, wonderful location walking distance to ocean and quiet, beautiful neighborhood. Excellent communication & professionalism before, during and after the rental process-just nice and easy-no complications and allowed for us to truly "vacation"! Great space in all bedrooms, kitchen very well equipped, living spaces comfortable and clean, thank you. We had family in town staying at other locations within walking distance to us.....we were the envy of all. Looking forward to a return!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had 13 in our group. The house worked great for us. The kitchen and living areas were set up nicely. The only complaint from 2 of our guest were the mattresses were too firm.

The property is in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood and a close walk to the beach.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Overall a great rental. House was exceptionally clean. Neighborhood pool was a short walk (1 house away) and was also very clean (it was cleaned every morning). And the neighborhood was very quiet and secluded. The walk to the beach was very short and easy (and we have 2 toddlers who made the walk easily). And the beach entrance had restrooms and showers, too.

Location could not be beat. We would definitely rent again.

Awesome Home for Families!

  • 5 of 5

Each year, between thirteen and fifteen members of our family make the trek from Oklahoma to Destin. This year, we stayed at this great property! It was perfectly arranged for a large family to be able to cook and communicate with each other during meals, while watching TV or while playing games. When they say two minutes to the beach, they weren't lying! The location in Crystal Shores can't be beat. Thank you for another AWESOME summer filled with family memories!
