owner rentals purchased this house in 2012

Why owner rentals chose Crystal Beach

We absolutely love the Gulf Coast. It offers everything we love, the most beautiful beaches...reminds us of the Cayman Islands. After retiring, we chose to purchase a home in the Destin area to use as our Vacation Destination! This location is perfect for tennis players, golfers, bike riding or simply just relaxing at the beach or by the pool. Great shopping and dining within walking distance. We hope you will visit and take home memories from a 'Dose of Destin!'

What makes this house unique

The main attractions of 'a Dose of Destin' is the proximity to the beautiful beach with easy access, wrap around balconies for those beautiful Destin Sunsets. Private Pool... With so many renovations we were able to add a few touches that really made this house our own. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Beautiful home, beautiful community

  • 5 of 5

This is the most unbelievable home. We have stayed at a number of locations in Destin over the past 10 years and this is the best one ever. The house itself is so beautifully decorated and feels warm and cozy. The location is perfect for walking to the beach as well as close to all the amenities such as restaurants, shopping, etc. It is great to walk around in the morning, down to the beach and then just around the beautiful neighborhood. The pool was perfect and the most relaxing and welcoming end to a busy day out. We absolutely loved it here and plan to return.

Clean, perfectly situated, and had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Dose of Destin was a short walk to a great part of Crystal Beach, not too busy and a very pretty area! The house is big and the pool was a great size for our family of 5. We were close to everything in town. We felt perfectly at home and couldn't of asked for much more! The kids loved it, too!

We had a terrific stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a house! Immaculate, tastefully appointed/decorated, and in a great location. Cable TV had all we needed and all TV sets are first-rate. Pool is larger than most neighboring properties' pools, and was tended to twice during the week by their pool service. They essentially have two sitting areas in the back (plus around the pool), and we took advantage of the milder weather by eating dinner outside three times during the week. And the toughest decision in the AM was whether to have our coffee on the upper porch or lower! Noreena was great to work with through the whole process--we really enjoyed our stay!
