About Kimbie

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.

Kimbie purchased this house in 2012

Why Kimbie chose Crystal Beach

Crystal Shores at Crystal Beach is a pristine neighborhood with a sense of quiet community. You'll see neighbors riding their bikes, walking their dogs, and waving hello from behind their white picket fences. The house is at the front of the neighborhood, directly across from the beach and 2-3 blocks from all the action of shops, gaming, and restaurants.

Very nice place and great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had wonderful time this past week. House is very roomy and great location for the beach. There are a few minor "fix it" jobs and furniture updates that need to be made but overall wonderful place to stay and will come back for sure.

Great house for families!

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautifully decorated and spacious for multiple families. The pool size was perfect for us and the game room was great for the little boys! The access to the beach and local attractions was great, parking in the driveway worked well for 4 vehicles. Like any rental, there is room for some improvements, but nothing major (reason for 4 stars). I would recommend this house and stay there again. Missing Destin already, excited to return!

House needs some TLC, but fantastic location!

  • 3 of 5

Plantation House is in an excellent location-- 5 houses from the beach access and with nice ocean views from the second and third floor balconies. This house could be an amazing property, but it needs some TLC. First, the home needs a deep clean-- there were dust bunnies under all of the beds, the light fixtures were covered in dust, and the light over the kitchen table had bugs in the lamp shade. The kitchen was fairly well stocked, but is in desperate need of more utensils, especially forks-- there are not enough for more than a family of 6. The master bathroom needs the tile regrouted and the shower had mold in it. The living room couch is in desperate need of replacement-- there was communication that a new couch was to be delivered while we were there, but it was not. The second and third floor balconies would have been more enjoyable, but the chairs on both were rusted and unsafe to sit on. The front door handle also needs replacing, as it was extremely difficult to open. The wrap around porch was beautiful and the porch swing was so comfortable-- we enjoyed being out on the porch every morning. The pool was a great addition-- we enjoyed it daily-- and the pool service came mid week to clean-- which was really nice. Some of the boards on the pool deck-- specifically near the grill need replacement. The grill worked great and we used it regularly. On the second to last day, the top step of the pool ladder broke when an adult stepped on it. The owners were left a message about this. The carriage house was good for our teenage girls, but the wifi did not reach there. The wifi in the house was excellent and the Sonos music system was amazing! The bikes need work-- chains were rusted and the brakes did not work too well on a few of them.

Overall, we had a great time-- there were 10 of us and never felt cramped. The location was amazing and the neighborhood was great. This house could be a 5 star home of the repairs are made and the house keeping service does a better job.

Another Perfect Week in Destin at a Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Great location...Fantastic sound system...spacious rooms. A wonderful house to enjoy a week with our families. When at the house we enjoyed the great room on the first floor, playing games on the spacious table, hanging out on the front porch swing, and swimming in the pool (the kids loved that particularly). When we went to the beach, it was a very short walk and the beach is beautiful. Kimbie took care of us when we had questions, and both young and old agreed that we would come back. Thanks for a great week!!!
