What an amazing home to spend a vacation in....especially the holidays. The homeowner, Donna, thinks of everything for your convenience. We especially loved the little "hotel" amenities in our bathrooms. Such a great quality. This house is a stunner. Very roomy and furnished in the highest quality. We loved our stay and look forward to coming back again and again. The Cooley Family (Christmas and New Years 2017)

Polka dot bikini rocks!!!... everything about this

  • 5 of 5

Polka Dot Bikini Rocks!!!... We have been coming to Destin for the last 5 years now and this is absolutely the best place we have ever stayed. This home is just a close walk to the beach and right around the corner from a beautiful Lagoon style pool. The house is beautifully decorated and is equipped with everything you need and even more, with shopping malls right around the corner. There is a nice gas grill off the porch for cooking outside and even an outside shower head, for washing sand off from the beach. There is even a box of beach toys for the kids to take to the beach. The house has a balcony which is great for evenings. The owners are top notch!!!. Donna was very sweet and personally made it a point to make our stay the most enjoyable ever! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Polka Dot Bikini and will definitely come back again. I highly recommend this gorgeous home! You will not be disappointed!!!

Polka Dot Bikini is simply amazing. It is very close to the beautiful beaches and around the corner from a "resort like" pool and spa. The house is beautifully decorated and the attention to detail is unbelievable. It has all that you can possibly imagine, from extra blankets and pillows to a toiletries in every bathroom. If you choose to make your meal at home there is a big grill for you to use. The balcony is great for evenings. The owners are very responsive and on top of things. We enjoyed our stay at Polka Dot Bikini and will definitely come back year after year. I highly recommend this gorgeous home! I promise you, you won't be disappointed!

Best vacation ever! I didn't wanna leave!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely had the time of my life! This house feels like home away from home, but better because it's just beautifully decorated, has everything you need and it's right by the gorgeous beaches of Destin. First we got there and we couldn't believe how everything looked exactly like in the pictures, really cleaned, comfortable king sized beds all around and then we went to check out the amazing pool area. The kids loved it! It's really close to the beach, and I hate walking so you know it's close! The sand looks just like sugar crystals and the water has all these different tones of blue and green, really beautiful.

We had never been to Destin and Donna, the owner, gave us the best tips on what to do and all the best food and drinks around. She was really thoughtful and sweet replying to all my questions and then left a bottle of wine to welcome us in her lovely home! We will definitely come back since no one wanted to leave and felt like this is the perfect vacation home! See you next year Polka Dot Bikini!

Great vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Polka Dot Bikini for Thanksgiving. Great place. Very close to the beach,shopping and attractions. Beautiful clean home with everything you need for a relaxing trip. My favorite space in the home was the large kitchen. The entire family was able to spend quality time glued to the kitchen island. It just felt like home!!!!

Villages of Crystal Beach is a gated community with a beautiful 30,000 sq. ft. lagoon style pool. The beach is just a short 5 minute walk or you can hop on the trolley that will take you to the white powdery beach. You can walk to Destin Commons Shopping Mall as well as many restaurants and pubs. Be sure to visit Baytown Warf in Sandestin and Harborwalk village. Children will love Big Kahuna water park. Silver Sands outlet mall is not to be missed.
