About Jay Nisbet

My bride Kristalynn and I live in Texas and have six children and 2 grandchildren. Our children range in ages 10yrs to 38yrs. We each grew up close to the ocean, I am from Boston and my bride lived in Hawaii. We love beautiful beaches and can not be away from them for long periods of time. I bought our 1st beach house (71701) for my bride's birthday. We gutted the house down to the studs and completely remodeled it. I decided to start renting the house to make up for some of the monthly expenses and it turned into a great small business. We named our home Summerwind (after the Frank Sinantra song that played at our wedding). We decided to expand in 2005 and bought another house in Panama City Beach (67499) and renovated that as well. Both houses have been a wonderful blessing for us. The families we meet and the memories they make at our homes are a precious gift. Guests have told me stories of their children asking them, 'when are we going back to our beach house'. That is so satisfying to us. Summerwind is truly your 'home away from home'.We have been looking at buying another house in 2012 and now that goal has been realized. WE DID IT!!! This is the newest addition to our collection of beach homes in the Destin-Panama City Beach area. We are so excited to get started with the new décor. We bought our 4th and fifth homes in 2015 (sold this one "cha-ching") and 2016 #767599. We are blessed again-Jesus Loves US this I know.

Jay Nisbet purchased this house in 2012

Why Jay Nisbet chose Crystal Beach

My wife and I study the Destin and Panama City Beach real estate markets. We have viewed hundreds of homes and have walked through more than I care to count. We have a well defined footprint for the vacation homes we acquire. This home not only met the criteria of our footprint, it has a wonderful southern charm to it and provides a peaceful, relaxing aura. The previous owner gave us the same warm feeling and she had put so much love into the house that it just felt like home. We also love the street it has a wonderful beach charm with sidewalks and white picket fences. We love sitting on the front porch watching families walk back and forth to the beach. The neighbors that live here full time are awesome too. We love CUDA and you will too. we also chose this property for the location and proximity to the beach. It had enough room to put in a full court basket court and kids and adults love to play.

What makes this house unique

This house has been lived in by the original owner only. It has never been on the rental program. The house is on the tax roles as being built in 1992. It was not completed until 1996 and that is when the original owner took possession. The home was well maintained and just needs a little Kristalynn (my bride) to give it the Summerwind look and feel. It has a wonderful private pool and a full court basketball court. It is a very short 60 PACES to the beach. IMAGINE seeing the gulf, you can hear it and smell it TOO. We have had several weddings in the short time we have owned the house. We have also have had several women's retreats. Imagine sitting on the front deck on a quiet street with white pickets fences just relaxing and watching the people stroll by. You have access to a extra wide walk way for walking, running, or biking less than 30 yards away. This home is located super close to restaurants, coffee shop, and shopping all within walking distance.

Great accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Family converged from four states (AR, LA, TN, TX), for thanksgiving. Space for everyone. Great location and proximity to local spots of interest, especially the beach. The pool and basketball court were icing on top. PLUS, owners are very responsive to inquiries or concerns!

Simply Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of the best we've stayed so far. The accommodations are incredible! The beds are super comfortable. The backyard and pool are extraordinary. It has all the amenities you need and more. It's beautifully decorated which makes you feel right at home. Great location! just couple of blocks away from the beach and from the best grocery/retail stores & restaurants.

We'll certainly come back next year!

Perfect beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 7 adults and 4 children. Plenty of space!! Perfect for hide and seek :) The boys enjoyed the basketball court & pool, while the adults enjoyed patio time and the quick walk to the beach. The kitchen is fully stocked with all your cooking needs, but if you’re looking to relax and rely on others to cook on your’re only a few blocks away from any & every restaurant imaginable.

The owners were easily accessible by phone or text. Although we had no needs during our visit, it was perfect!!

My staff and our children went down for a spontaneous getaway (and reward for job well done).

The house is decorated beautifully and the space is abundant. The kids loved playing hide a go seek because there are so many rooms and spaces to hide and never be found. Three large on each floor worked great for the adults...and the kids. There was eight of us and there were two bedrooms that were not even touched...SPACIOUS AND plenty of privacy!

You will not go wrong, and be proud you chose to stay at this wonderful house just feet from the walkway to the ocean. If you have a basketball player in the family.... they will be thrilled with shooting hoops on the private basketball court.

Love this house! So much room for everyone, not to mention the large pool in the back right off the kitchen. To the left of the pool was a full basketball court. The teenagers loved it! This house was so clean and well decorated. The front porch was a plus to just sit and watch the neighbors pass going to the beach which was right across the street or just enjoy the evening breeze. Everything at our fingertips... Destin Commons just up the road and close to so many restaurants and shopping. Perfect location! Owners are such gems to work with and take pride in their home. They work so hard to make it inviting and nice so we can just come, relax, and enjoy. I would recommend this house immensely for all types of families.
