About the Property

6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, outdoor shower, sleeps 24 - pure LUXURY

100 STEPS TO BEACH ACCESS!! 'The Destin Boomerang', Owners since 12/09, we completed a full upscale renovation of this main house for your comfort and enjoyment in May 2012 and cabana house in 2015. We have thought of just about everything - just bring your swimsuits and sunscreen. Enjoy such luxuries as the granite/stainless kitchen, flat screen TVs and DVD players in every bedroom and living area, Wii and X-box360 for the kids in the spectacular bunk room , an extensive video collection as well as games and books for all ages. Enjoy the comfort of the Egyptian cotton sheets and premium bedding sets. Each floor has its own HVAC unit for comfort throughout. Amenities galore, we want you coming back!

Situated with just one house between you and the sugary white sand beaches that Destin is famous for. The house itself is nearly 2800 sf with another 600 sf spread out over 6 private balconies and porches! You will enjoy the shops and restaurants at the Destin Commons just 4 short blocks away.


Layout: 1st floor: Living room, Dining area, Kitchen, Full bathroom, Fantastic Bunk room, Laundry room.

Enjoy watching a DVD on the 55' flat screen from the comfortable leather sleeper/sofa. Or just enjoy curling up and reading a good novel in the matching love seat while the kids and mom or dad are off fighting the waves. The living room flows into the dining area where you will enjoy a fabulous 'Chic Teak' dining table for 8 with water hyacinth chairs and 4 matching bar stools along the counter for plenty of seating. The kitchen is a gourmet's dream! Stainless everything and granite counter tops accented with a tumbled marble back splash.

Off the kitchen is the kid's spectacular retreat with two sets of bunk beds (queen over queen and full over full) for an availability of 8 to sleep. 2 desk nooks at the end of each bunk for down time. They can also enjoy watching a video or playing with the supplied Wii (just make sure they don't spend all their time indoors on vacation!).

2nd and 3rd floors: 2nd: Master Bedroom and second king bedroom (each attached with bathroom with tile showers and jacuzzi tub as well in master).

Master features a pillow top king bed. Step through the French doors to your private balcony and enjoy the sounds of crashing waves. Or just pop in a DVD and wind down a perfect day. The jetted tub surrounded by tile will further relax you, or enjoy the separate shower if you prefer.

The second bedroom is also appointed with a king size bed and attached bathroom. It has a balcony that overlooks the private pool.

3rd: Queen Bedroom 'the Seashell room' with private balcony and fabulous gulf views.
The 3rd floor living room enjoys another comfortable Chenille fabric sleeper/sofa and sports a wet bar with upscale refrigerator. The huge rear balcony, overlooking the pool, has sweeping gulf views and proved to offer a great vantage point to watch New Year's fireworks. New patio furniture on this balcony offers great area to play cards or enjoy the breeze.

Cabana House and Pool: Between the main house and cabana is the 12x24 pool (3 to 5 ft deep - no diving). We have plenty of lounge chairs as well as stackable chairs to accommodate larger parties. A nearly 1000 sf paver stone deck for plenty of entertainment room. Have a family ping-pong tournament or just soak in the sun. There is a gas grill and an outdoor shower to clean up with before going back inside.

The cabana house, renovated for the 2015 season, includes a private king bedroom with separate entry. While this room will share a bathroom with the bunk room, it has its' own separate vanity for privacy while getting ready. The cabana also has a bunk room with queen over queen bunks. There is a full bathroom which now includes a tiled walk-in shower.

Location

We are just steps to the public beach access (100 steps) Our location can't be beat! So close, in fact, that when someone in your family forgets a boogie board or snack, the house is just a heartbeat away!

Fabulous restaurants are within walking distance of the house or grill out right in our backyard on our fabulous gas grill while the family swims and has ping pong tournaments!

Hire a expert sand castle expert to give your family lessons on sculpting a magical sand castle! I have seen there demonstrations and tips! What fun for the whole family!

The Silversands Outlet Mall is within 3 miles of the house and has fantastic shopping. The Destin Commons Mall is just 1/2 mile away and contains a great movie theater.

Big Kahuna, a water slide park, is just 3 miles down the road. There is also an amusement park called the Track Destin that has Go-Karts, mini gold, kiddie rides, and more.

Bowling anyone? A great new island themed 16 lane bowling alley and grill just opened up last year and is called Uncle Buck's FishBowl and Grill! Our family has had great times competing while eating appetizers and drinking cocktails and sodas while bowling. Sports games are also televised on giant screens!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Hi, we are the Duke family. We have been married for 24 years and have 3 great boys! We just moved to the Destin area and are loving the close proximity to the beach, fishing, and boating! We are the owners as well as the managers of the house so you will not have to worry about any third party red tape!

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Destin, FL, USA:
We want to give our guests the best of both worlds- the fabulous sugary white sand beach access just a 100 steps away and a private backyard with a pool, ping pong table, and gas grill to call your own! The proximity to the beach cannot be beat! We fell in love with this particular location because of the family friendly neighborhood! All of the homes that surround us are vacation rentals so everyone is relaxed and on vacation as well, and that makes a big difference! We loved the Destin area so much that we just recently moved from the Memphis area and became LOCALS! Living the Dream! It is drivable from so many areas throughout the country. We love all of the family oriented restaurants and activities in the area. The kids like the water park, Big Kahuna, and Mom and Dad like the many patio restaurants with live music to enjoy a bite with the family while sipping on some great beach concoctions . Of course the crown jewel is the sugary white beach where we spend many hours.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have 8 years of experience owning vacation rentals and are attuned to what the vacationer wants! Now that we are locals, we are just a phone call away! We provide just about everything you will need for a beach vacation right at the house! We supply several beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, 12 beach towels (because there is someone who always forgets) and a great beach cart to load all this paraphernalia down to the beach. We also have a fully stocked kitchen, Wii and X-box for the kids, paperback books for the beach, and tons of movies on DVD for adults and kids alike! We also supply a Pack n Play as well as a highchair! The Destin Boomerang, You'll want to come "Right Back"!
