About Trevor or Sarah Ladner

Hello and Thank You for visiting White Sand Vacation Rentals! We are delighted that you are considering a vacation in Destin. It seems like yesterday that we too were planning a trip to Destin, FL. After sitting here on the whitest white sand beaches, gazing out at that breathtaking teal blue water, we knew this was the place we wanted to call home!

Destin is where Sarah and I have been happily married for 7 years, started a family, started a business and most importantly where we both started our personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. It is our pleasure to raise up both our family and our business in service to Him. God has blessed us with 3 little boys ages 5, 3 & 1 so far and we are still hoping for that little girl :). We hope that you enjoy Destin as much as we have. If you have any questions or need anything at all we are always just a phone call away.

Kind Regards, Trevor and Sarah Ladner


Trevor or Sarah Ladner purchased this house in 2013

Why Trevor or Sarah Ladner chose Crystal Beach

This property is very special to us. We used to call it the 'Little Beach House' as we bought this property with a little old 1940's beach house on it. The location of this home is outstanding because it is so close to the Pompano St. Beach access. This access is one of the few in Destin that does not have stairs, which makes it a highly sought after street to vacation on here in Destins' Crystal Beach. We rented it out for 2 years in preparation for the construction of the 'Big Beach House'. Now that time has come. The Little Beach House has been removed and we are in the construction process right now. The home is scheduled to be completed in January of 2013.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of renting a brand new home are many. No wear and tear from years of rentals. Just clean, fresh and new.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is fabulous! Everyone having a bathroom was so nice. The golf cart was such a fun luxury. Lots and lots of memories made.

Really nice place, we had really good time in the house and outside pool, the golf kart was wonderful to take the kids back-and-forth to the beach! We recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a nice stay in Destin area.

Great time despite the tropical storm

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families coming from different places meet in Destin and stay in the home. It was perfect. There was more than enough space for our 7 adults and 7 children. The common area on the first floor was a good amount of space and the kitchen easily accommodated all the cooking we did. We were stuck inside for several days due to a tropical storm, which made the covered, screened in porch a blessing. We would definitely stay again.

Our Family Staty at the Big Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Each year we have a family vacation in Destin. People come from Arkansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Virginia. Over the past several years we have stayed at the Big Beach House. That is a testimony of our experience there. The property fits our size, pool, porch, and being close to beach requirement. It is extremely well maintained and Sarah and Trevor have been great.
