You’ll love the spacious, open floor plan of the main house with tile floors, plenty of comfortable seating in the living area and a large flat screen TV with DVR/Blu Ray.

You’ll find all the dishes, pans and utensils you may need, a Keurig D-Cup coffee maker, crock pot and even a few spices, to get you started. We want you to feel at home, and the large, open layout is a perfect gathering spot for your family or friends.

For the convenience of our guests, we have also included a full-size washer and dryer in a large laundry area off the kitchen. It’s enclosed in an extra-large closet, with storage space for items you like to bring to the beach. You’ll also find an iron, ironing board, broom, and a few cleaning supplies.


Down the extra-wide hallway on the main floor is this comfortable, private bedroom that features a QUEEN BED with a new quilt, super-soft Egyptian cotton sheets, a bedside table with reading lamp and a flat-screen TV. There’s a dresser and double closets for plenty of storage. Coordinating draperies allow for extra privacy or a little less light if you’d like to sleep in or enjoy an afternoon nap during your stay. The well-appointed, full bathroom is adjacent to this bedroom.

Your group can relax and enjoy the beautiful Destin sunshine in the 12 x 24 ft. pool surrounded by a spacious deck and beautifully landscaped private back yard. There’s plenty of seating, including an updated dining table for 6 with a tile top and umbrella, as well as a bistro table and chairs on the covered deck next to the back door. A gas grill is right there too for easy cookouts by the pool. For your little children, there are child safety gates to the pool deck from both the main house and the carriage house. Pool heat is available for an additional fee.


This home has a large driveway which accommodates 3-4 vehicles (depending on the size of the cars) . There is no on-street parking allowed in Destin.


The home is about a block from the beach; you can choose between two access points: Shirah Street or the larger ‘Shore at Crystal Beach Park’ with a pavilion and bathrooms. At the house, you’ll find a cart with beach chairs and an umbrella, so you can roll your gear to the beach with ease. Crystal Beach is the gold standard of Destin...no high-rise condominiums. It’s mostly residential, which contributes to the quietness of the neighborhood – you can just stroll down the sidewalk to the beach, or walk to a few nearby restaurants or shops.

Restaurants, activities and entertainment are also close-by. Destin Commons, a beautiful upscale shopping and entertainment center, is less than a half-mile away. It features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Bass Pro Shop, World of Beer, Panera Bread, Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl & Grill, AMC Theater with IMAX and much more. Local favorite, Camille’s, is an easy walk around the corner and The Crab Trap is about a mile east. You can bicycle, scooter, Jet ski and go para-sailing all within walking distance. The Silver Sands Outlet mall is not far for those who enjoy “retail therapy”!


We are pet friendly and welcome your dogs in our home. Pre-approval and a $200 + tax pet fee applies.

About Sugar Palm Vacation Rentals

We have been part of VRBO since its early days, being long time friends and colleagues of the founder. We understand the 'by owner' nature of this business better than anyone, and go above and beyond to bring you a great home. We own these homes and are truly offering them 'by owner.' We are local and will meet you here, so we have to be proud of them. We also provide honest rates, and don't charge reservation or other junk fees. We keep our calendars up-to-date and typically reply to inquiries within minutes.

Why Sugar Palm Vacation Rentals chose Destin

Destin is one of the most popular vacation spots on VRBO for a reason - family oriented, amazing beaches, lots of attractions, shopping, and great seafood and fishing. We think the Crystal Beach community is hands-down the best Destin has to offer for families. It's quaint and quiet with cottage-style homes and white picket fences, sidewalks, nestled right on the beach, and lower density - no high-rise condos allowed. Crystal Beach is surrounded by Destin Commons and other multitudes of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment for the entire family.

What makes this House unique

We love our house because it is only steps from the beach, always kept clean, and is roomy and comfortable with new renovations and all new furniture in 2012. The private pool is relaxing, and a separate carriage house provides privacy for our friends and in-laws when they come down with us. We love the Crystal Beach community because we like to walk. Lower density, sidewalks, picket fences, and ocean views make walking a real treat in Crystal Beach.

                                              Great house!

                                              Amy G.

                                              Could use a few more pots and pans, but overall a great house with lots to offer!

                                              Owner's Response:

                                              Thanks for your kind review. FYI, all of our homes are equipped with a full 16 piece professional Calphalon cookware set, we also have bakeware and stock pots but if you ever need more, just call our office, we have extras we can bring over if you need more. We look forward to hosting you and your family again.

                                              Short walk to great beach and food options.

                                              Barbara J.

                                              The pool was a bonus for the times we weren't going to the beach. Lots of walking options as well.

                                              We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you and your family stay with us again.

                                              Great location, a lot of space.

                                              Jordany N.

                                              This house is just a short week to the beach, a lot of space and a great family pool.

                                              Seahouse Escape was great for our family

                                              Billocnd148carmel, IN, USA

                                              The house was clean, well-kept and spacious. The Master Bedroom and its great balcony was perfect for coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. The pool was a good size and the kids loved it. The two older girls loved the detached pool house bedroom as it gave them their own space.

                                              Owner's Response:

                                              Thanks so much for taking time to leave us your nice review! We appreciate it, and are so happy to hear how much your family loved your stay at Seahouse Escape! We hope you'll consider staying with Sugar Palm Rentals again when you next visit Destin.

                                              Fantastic home, pool house great addition!

                                              Paul H.

                                              The house is a great size for a group of 12-13, the pool house has two rooms which are perfect for older guests who can sleep separately from the rest of the house guests. Front balcony was very nice as well!

                                              Ideal Getaway

                                              KCAtlanta, GA

                                              Beautiful, well appointed, comfortable, and spacious home just a softball's throw from the beach. We have stayed in many rentals and found the level of cleanliness and maintenance here to be top notch - the type of place where all the remotes work and the clocks actually display the correct time when you walk in! We enjoyed Camille's Cafe one block away for breakfast & Happy Hour. This location also put us within a short drive of myriad choices of excellent seafood, shopping, and entertainment. We needed a quiet rest and recharge getaway and this was ideal!

                                              Owner's Response:

                                              Thanks for all of your kind words about our home. We take great pride in providing the best possible experience for all of our guests. Destin is a great place for restaurants and shopping as well as the beach. We're glad you had a good times and can't wait for you to come back!
