Destin Comforts Professionally manages this Home.

New Owner has just done MORE updates! new King Mattresses and Pillows for a great night's sleep! Coast decorations added, more kitchen gadgets, bedding etc...

The absolute best location in the area, Very popular Villages of Crystal Beach, one of Destin's best resort destinations. From the Fabulous Lagoon Pool with Hot Tub to the Tiki Chillin' area, you'll think you have landed in the islands!!! The expansive Lagoon pool keeps our guests coming back year after year. There's nothing else like it in Destin! Landscaped island in the middle of the pool and surround sound music plays as you sunbathe. The Tiki area has a large bar with barstools and lots of comfy seating (no service--BYOB!). There's even a big screen TV so you can hang out and watch the games!

Sun Kissed is a beautifully and comfortably furnished 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Villa! All hard floors, no carpet in this lovely home. The size and number of baths makes it perfect for multiple families to share and enjoy. Two master suites and bonus loft area. Each room has a 42' or 32' Plasma TV plus HDTV in living room. Extended cable, WIFI and local phone are a bonus! Pac and Play and high chair available for the little one!

Special touches truly make the Sun Kissed a warm and inviting vacation get away; beach, resort pool, outdoor kitchen, shopping, golf, fishing, or just enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the kids make memories - it's YOUR day.

Peak season there's a Seasonal complimentary trolley that can transport you to and from the beach, or take the 5-8 minute walk on your own--the beach is only 3 blocks away.

This gated (2 entrances, north and south) secure community is located in the heart of it all. Tons of shopping and restaurants right outside the north gate--yes, there is a Starbucks! Just across the street is the popular Destin Commons with shops, restaurants, entertainment and Rave Movie Theater. Paradise Key Shopping Center right next door has Publix, Walgreens, Bonefish Grill, TGI Fridays and more.

We think the resort pool is big enough, but if the kids want more, The Big Kahuna Water Park is only 3.5 miles away. While they're splashing away, the big kids can Sea's their Day at numerous golf courses within a few miles. You can go fishing, rent a boat or walk along the waterfront at famous Destin Harbor, where you'll find local artists, face-painting for the kids, dining options, or a great spot to watch the beautiful sunsets and dolphins.

About Cheryl - Sun Kissed

As a Multiple Military family of 6 including 3 boys and our German Wire Haired Pointer – our life is active and we love it; spending multiple years overseas apart has really made us appreciate making memories together and how really important it is; as a family we love working out, hiking, camping, mountain biking, fishing, if its active, we probably like to do it.

Cheryl - Sun Kissed purchased this house in 2013

Why Cheryl - Sun Kissed chose Crystal Beach

We spent several years vacationing in Florida. Then a few years saying how cool it would be to have our own place. Finally we did it. We wanted to have a home that allowed us to enjoy all that Destin has to offer, being very close to the beach was paramount while not being in the middle of the “party” scène. We had to have easy and quick access to the great restaurants, golf courses, and all the other fun things to do in the area. We wanted to feel like we were in a resort like we were on vacation. Sunkissed and The Villages of Crystal Beach provide it! We love our home and we love the great reviews and e-mails we get from others who have shared our home.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location!– Our home is very close to the beach yet avoids the sometimes overwhelming beach party scene. You can go and enjoy then come back and relax! Resort pool, Jacuzzi, and Outdoor Kitchen all a part of The Villages of Crystal Beach. Sunkissed has unbelievable access to everything Destin has to offer

The property was nice and well stocked with kitchen supplies

  • 4 of 5

Our overall experience was wonderful. We had such a great time that we extended our vacation by 1 day and the owners accommodate graciously extended our stay. Below breaks down our experience.

House - was a great size to accommodate 2 families. All the rooms were a nice size and all rooms had a TV. The mattresses were not really up to our standards. The floors were dirty upon our arrival, but the owners were very prompt about correcting the problem. The kitchen was fully stocked with kitchen supplies for cooking. They also had some beach chairs in a closest which were very comfortable.

The neighborhood was full of other vacationing families and the kids were able to ride around on their scooters. The neighborhood pool is very nice.

The beach is a good walk away so be prepared if you don’t want to take the shuttle. The owners did provide something to tote all your beach stuff with which was a big help.

Overall our stay was amazing. Destin is our new favorite place. We will be back and would stay at this property but want to be closer to the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback. We are happy you had a good stay at Sunkissed. A couple of things, as for the floors, as our guests come and go bringing in luggage and supplies and with 12 guests coming and going the floors quickly get dirty so it may seem as if the floors are dirty but generally that is after so much traffic coming and going. Mattresses: Thank you for the suggestion, the owner just put in 2 new King sets with new pillows as well as several other household items. Thanks again for staying with us. - Cheryl St. Pe' Manager, Destin Comforts

Nice house with needed mattress upgrades

  • 3 of 5

House was beautiful. Main complaint is the beds felt very cheap & uncomfortable. Not a comfortable night sleep.

Same goes for the sofa bed couch. Not very comfortable to sit on.

Overall the house was great.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our third stay in properties managed by Destin Comforts was identical to the others. A clean, well provisioned rental, easy check-in and great service.

This location strikes the perfect balance between high rise but cramped and off beach but spacious. A quick walk to the water and easily sleeps two families. More importantly, the community has an incredible pool and is walking distance to restaurants, groceries an shopping which saves driving during high traffic seasons.
