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. Baytowne offers dining, activities for the kids, and a couple of bars if the adults would like to grab a drink. The wharf has a fun New Orleans vibe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Really liked the pre- arrival emails. They were helpful and timely. Would have liked more information about area attractions available onsite. No computer available to check online either. Had a great stay at Crystal Villas. Very nice, comfortable accommodations with exceptional ocean view - the beach right at "your back door." Very smooth check in and out.

We wouldn't visit anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed from the moment we stepped into the unit. It was clean and absolutely beautiful! There was a nice king size bed, two bathrooms and full kitchen which we utilized quite a bit. The living room was nice and cozy with a pull out couch, love seat, four chairs and dinning table and cable tv that all look out to an incredible view of the gulf. We were right on the ocean with a private beach! Absolutely wonderful place! And would stay again!

Just Not Clean

  • 2 of 5

Location can't be beat. Unfortunately, the room was a lot more "used" than the pictures indicate. The seven can lights in the kitchen flickered constantly. The carpet was very stained. The worst part was the roaches. We killed at least seven while we were there. Not surprisingly, there is a complementary ant and roach bottle in the cabinet. Have stayed in five different units in this condo over the years and hate to say we won't be back.
