What a perfect beach vacation I had at The Plantation House! This house was ultra luxurious, with beautiful furniture and decor in every room spanning 3 floors, with views of the ocean from 2 balconies!
Waking up on the 3rd floor loft style suite was a real highlight, sunlight streaming in from all the windows with the morning ocean in view. It is just across a non-busy street from the ocean, and you can still hear the waves! We drove to many beaches in the area during our week-long stay, but the beach in front of the house was just as gorgeous and lovely. The whitest, sugary sand, and the water was always clear, blue-green and just the right temperature, even at the end of September. Some days the ocean was glassy like a giant pool with many kinds of fish swimming around, and other days there were waves for me to jump in! Flags on the beach let you know how strong the current is that day.
The house had everything we needed all week - beach chairs and umbrellas, multiple coolers to picnic down on the beach, floats, beach towels and even a beach bag and mats to use. When the sun was at its strongest, we would come back to the house, shower off in the outdoor shower, and hang out in the pool. The house has a super-nice sound system that pipes to every floor and to the pool and deck areas. It was all controlled with an iPad mounted in the wall that let you choose where the music played. Very fun! The pool was heated, which made it great at night under the moon. There is even a rolling cooler in the kitchen that we could wheel out to the poolside with our drinks! Most nights, we went to the local fish market and bought freshly caught fish and grilled on the pool patio grill. What a treat! I can't imagine having a better beach vacation, thanks Plantation House!

Crystal Shores at Crystal Beach is a pristine neighborhood with a sense of quiet beachside community. You'll see neighbors riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and waving hello from behind their white picket fences. Crystal Beach is one of the most desirable areas due to the close proximity to the beach and activites/shops. Just one block from the beach! Within walking distance there is all the action of shops, gaming, and restaurants. A few blocks from the renowned Henderson Park Inn which sits on a National Preserve, great place for a cocktail or dinner. A huge outdoor mall, the Destin Commons, is just a three block bike ride. Familiar restaurants and big retail stores are within a two block walk. Crystal Beach is one of the Northwest Florida's most sought after vacation communities.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We've both grownup on along the beach. West Coast for me and North East Coast for my husband, but nothing compares to the world famous sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters of Destin. Friends introduced our family to Destin in 2005 and we fell in love, hoping to one day own a beach house that we could share with family, old friends, and new friends. From our family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and make lasting memories to cherish.
