About Cheryl - Rendezvous

As a military family, we move often and wanted a place where we could put down roots and always come back to. Destin was the logical choice for us. This part of the gulf has plenty to offer families as well as couples just looking to get away. From golf and fishing to go-cart racing and Para-sailing there is something for everyone. If you just want to relax that’s fine too. With beautiful weather year round, spectacular white beaches and emerald water there’s no place better to wind down. We find that wherever we are, our thoughts are never far from planning the next trip back to our piece of paradise. We hope you’ll visit and make your next rendezvous with us.

Cheryl - Rendezvous purchased this house in 2012

Why Cheryl - Rendezvous chose Crystal Beach

Location, Location, Location

What makes this house unique

We love the secluded paradise feeling of this gated community. With the beautiful tropical landscaping, spectacular lagoon pool, Tiki cabanas, and gorgeous island inspired homes you can’t help but relax, let your worries melt away, and slow down. The Villages are located minutes away from all the major local conveniences and attractions and is a short walk to public access beach. Although once you get here it’s hard to find any reason to leave! It feels like our own private retreat.

Good location for the price

  • 4 of 5

We had a full house of 12 people here for my mom's 70th birthday. The location was great, about 8-10 min slow walk to the beach or quick ride on the bike (3 min). Nice having a pool there, but the water was so warm we didn't end up going to the pool bc it just wasn't refreshing. Loved how there were dishes and toys for young children, as we had a toddler there.

We had a couple issues when we arrived and we called about it and they were able to resolve the issues fast. While we ended up having 4 cars, we had one parked conveniently next door in the overflow lot and parking wasn't an issue. Good place when you're on a budget and want to be close to the beach. Would recommend.

2nd Mile Service, Awesome Spring Break!!

  • 5 of 5

The Rendezvous was the perfect fit for our family and friends for our spring break vacation. We had the perfect location...a few blocks from the ocean and 1 block to the pool!! The house was roomy enough for everyone and even had a lounge area for the teenage boys to hang out. There were tv's in every room so we didn't fight over what to watch. The kitchen was large enough to fit everyone together to eat at the same time. I loved all the appliances that were available for our use...toaster, coffee maker and blender. They had tons of dishes and I loved all the pans and baking items. The beds were so comfortable too!

2nd Mile Service!! After returning home I realized we left a very important item at the house. I called and Cheryl immediately answered the phone and informed me she would check with the cleaning crew to see if they found it. She called me back shortly after and said the cleaning crew had indeed found it. Cheryl went above and beyond what you would expect and we arranged to get my belongings back! What customer service and she did it with a smile in her voice the entire time!! We'll definitely be staying here again!!

Relax in a beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home looks brand new and was very clean. It had a well equipped kitchen to accommodate large meals. It also had very comfortable beds with newer bedding. They provided some toys, games, high chair and port a crib. They even had kid friendly cups and utensils! They had some beach chairs and items as well for renters to use. The trolley stops transporting at 5pm which we wanted to go to the beach in the evening to avoid the crowds and sun. So we mainly walked but we enjoyed the walk. The pool is amazing and we all had a great time at this community. We look forward to a return trip.

Wonderful Family Vacation in a GREAT house!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Cheryl,

I must tell you that my family and I had THE MOST FABULOUS time at this home in Destin. When we arrived, the home was spotlessly clean and every thing we could have needed to settle in was provided. A spaghetti strainer and blender for margaritas was there. There was so much thought put into this home, that my husband and I are considering a purchase in this development ourselves. I want to personally thank you for the ease of set up, payment and finally arrival. I was really expecting a long drawn out headache over picking up keys, etc. but the process was so easy, that WE WILL BE BACK!

Breathtaking Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with 5 teenagers and 5 moms to Destin, Fl week of 4-19-14 through 4-26-14, the Rendezvous was georgeous, clean, new and everything we expected. Pool was great but we were at the beach everyday. Walk to the beach is a little farther than expected but well worth it. Have stay previously in Orange Beach, AL and this beach and water is whiter and crystal clear. Would recommend this property and rental company to everyone I know. Would definitely rent a car!
