About Cheryl - Happy Ours

We visited Destin in 2011 with our children and grandchildren. The family enjoyed the warm weather, beautiful white sugar beaches and the unique color of the gulf. We discovered the Villages at Crystal Beach and immediately fell in love with this unique private community. The beautiful tropical landscaping and outstanding oversized lagoon pool made us feel like we wanted to spend more time here. We hope that others will visit the Emerald Coast while creating their own memories at the HAPPY OURS!

Cheryl - Happy Ours purchased this house in 2012

Why Cheryl - Happy Ours chose Crystal Beach

We chose new construction because we wanted this home to have our own special touches.

What makes this house unique

We love the Villages of Crystal Beach with the fabulous huge lagoon walk in pool with the hot tub, Tiki Grilling area and the lush landscaping feel like paradise. The surround sound music at the pool plays all day so you feel like you are on some tropical island somewhere. We've never seen anything like it. The beach is super close and we are just literally moments away from everything we want or need to do in Destin.

Perfect location for beach, pool, restaurants and shopping

  • 5 of 5

First time to Destin and I think we picked the perfect house. We had a group of 11 consisting of 4 adults and 7 children (ages between 11 and 17). House was perfect. Very clean and well kept. The main level kitchen and family room area had an open concept with plenty of space that allowed us all to be together for meals and hanging out. Very impressed with the fully stocked kitchen cooking essentials (griddle, pots/pans, dishes, etc.). The house must have a huge water heater, too. We all took showers back-to-back and all 11 showers had hot water! Location to beach was great - we were worried about the walk. It took ~5 minutes and was easy for the older kids to walk without parents. Happy Ours had beach chairs, sand toys and 2 small coolers with a great wagon to put everything in to make the walk easy. The beach shuttle was quick and easy, never had to wait more than a couple minutes if you wanted to go back and forth without the wagon. Residential community pool/hot tub was great; less than 1 minute walk. Tons of shopping and restaurants very close to Happy Ours. It is an easy drive to Destin Harbourwalk. Again, great central location. We would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Erlene and I(Ed)are so pleased that you enjoyed our home. We made it our mission when we purchased "Happy Ours" to provide our renters with a home- away- from- home experience. We come down to Destin at least twice a year for two reasons. First, to make sure that the house is in tip top shape for our clients and second, to enjoy our second home with our friends and family. Thank you for your kind words and your confirmation that we are being successful in that mission. God Bless you!

Great place! Very comfortable and quiet. The accomodations were outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us on the stay in Destin and we had more than enough room. Very nice accommodations, clean and well kept home. Short walk to the beach and great jogging/biking path along the beach road. Very close proximity to restaurants and shopping if that is your thing, but we spent most of our time walking/jogging/biking in and around the area. Great in shore fishing with Captain Blake Nelson at Last Cast Charters...been with him for over 10 years and he and the other boats he runs are simply awesome for putting you on the fish and a great time on the water.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Modern and clean place with a good amount of space. Maintenance staff was very responsive and professional with a couple minor issues. 10 min walk to the beach and 1 minute to the pool. Well worth the price.. would recommend to anyone.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I first visited Destin and stayed at Happy Ours in Fall of 2015 with our grown children. We all fell in love with Destin and the added comfort staying at Happy Ours secured a repeat vacation in 2016! This year it was just the two of us as the kids recently had a baby. To say the least we shared another fabulous week! We found ourselves playing like kids in the pool. We took long walks along the beach and soaked in the sun. We saw dolphins not far from us playing in the water! Happy Ours made our experience peaceful and cozy. We stocked the fridge with our favorite foods and enjoyed amazing dinners out! The convenience of local shopping for necessities is always a plus. Destin Commons shops and restaurants Are beautiful to walk around. We even caught a movie at the AMC when taking a break from the sun. We found unique goodies to bring back to our new Grandbaby!

Destin and Happy Ours has captured our hearts and we look forward to coming back in 2017!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing vacation in Destin staying at Happy Ours. The home is absolutely gorgeous! The location is ideal - walking distance to the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen, amazing restaurants just blocks away and having the fully stocked incredible kitchen gave us the option to stay in, hang out by the beautiful pool and grill some amazing freshly caught seafood. The entertainment room for the kids was ideal after a long day at the beach! The white sand beaches, warm emerald green water, dolphins, restaurants serving the most incredible seafood, fishing, shopping - we made such unforgettable memories at Happy Ours that will last my family a lifetime! Thank you for sharing your paradise with us!!
