Why Rebecca Callaway chose Crystal Beach

We visited Destin last September and fell in love with the area! So, we decided to buy our vacation home here! You will love the beaches, and shopping and restaurants!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Theo Stanford



Atlanta, GA



Incredible



The first thing we noticed upon entering the Chilley Gilley is the immaculate decor! The decor was rivaled only by the comfort of the entire home. I have traveled the world by plane (Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, etc.) and though we actually drove from Atlanta to Destin, this was possibly the best vacation ever and that's because of the comfort of the home. Our trip was in celebration of our mom's 85th birthday, and the home and the beautiful beaches and area of Destin made it a momentous and memorable occasion! We are already making plans to return to Destin and will certainly check to see if our home away from home (Chilley Gilley) is available!

The home was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The quietness was a plus sine we were all 50+. It is a beautiful home with everything you need. Wish the beach was closer but it was only a short drive. Would definitely stay again.

Very lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this place!!! We had plenty of space with 7 ppl and it is a very nice home. There's a trolley to the beach, but honestly it's only about a 1/4 mile so we just walked. Alot of beach stuff already there(big wagon as well) and a very nice community pool. No downside to this property!!! It is a fairly late check-in of 4pm, and early check out 10am.($300 fee for violations) So if you have kids make sure to plan for that. I promise you'll have no regrets!

We were really impressed with the home. It was perfect for us and our adult children.

  • 5 of 5

Gave everyone their own private space. Many amenities over and above what was expected. Decor was fantastic. Pool was huge and very nice though it was crowed all the time. Probably needed a second pool in order to accommodate the area. Considering it was a family area it was quiet. We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments in regards to the amenities being over and above what was expected! The pool is the 2nd largest in Destin, so we are so happy we have it in our community! Please come back again and enjoy our home!

Nice Place - Super Convenient

Nice place in Destin. We enjoyed our stay. There were a couple of minor things that needed improvement but overall, it was well worth it to rent this house!
