About The Owner

Nick and Amber are an active duty military family delighted to share their beach vacation home with you and your family!

Why The Owner chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

Having traveled to beaches all over the world, we can attest that that the beautiful sugar sand beaches of the Emerald Coast are some of the best anywhere. The waves are family friendly and the water is warm for many months of the year!

What makes this house unique

The Crystal Beach neighborhood of Destin, Florida is in the perfect location, close to everything and steps away from the beach and yet it has a friendly, quiet neighborhood feel.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

Two houses feels like one big house!

  • 5 of 5

Great home, includes playhouse the kids love and the pool and backyard are the best in Crystal Beach! Comfortable beds and linens. We really love the location so close to all the shops and restaurants and yet a quiet neighborhood and just two blocks up from the beach. We could hear the waves from our front porch!

Drag Inn Fly is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Drag Inn Fly over New Years. The house was very clean, the kitchen well stocked for all our needs, and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the spa, walking to the beach, and exploring the area shops and restaurants. We will definitely be coming back!

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice at the Drag-inn Fly and would happily do so again. Nick and Amber have worked hard to stock each side of the duplex with everything one needs to feel at home--a complete kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, and of course the salt-water pool in the backyard is a definite plus. There's always something to do in Destin and the Drag-inn Fly was a great home base for us while on our vacation. Loved it!

Great place to stay. Great location for everything, only 2 blocks from ocean, easy walk. The pool was wonderful, great entertainment for our grandkids. The outdoor furniture could be updated a little as well as the living room furniture in Unit #1. Great place.

Awesome Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Drag-inn Fly! The accommodations could not have been better. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped, and had everything we needed. Bedrooms were very roomy and the beds were very comfortable. We found everything so clean.The pool and spa were huge! The backyard area with the pool and spa is gorgeous. We enjoyed walking to the beach everyday and loved riding around the neighborhood in the golf cart that was provided. The location was close to shopping and eateries. The owners, Amber and Nick, were great to work with and did everything possible to make our stay the best! We stayed a week and would love to go back again someday. We highly recommend this property. You will love it!

Awesome - You will not be disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both sides of the duplex for a family reunion in July. There were 21 of us ranging in age from 17 to 55. We ALL had an amazing week! The highlight of the home is the pool and yard. We started every day with coffee in the cabana and finished every evening with a cocktail by the pool. It is by far the largest and nicest pool we have had in all our years of renting homes.

The weather was extremely hot so we spent our days between the beach and the pool. The nearby shopping is quite nice too. The golf cart is a bonus for sure and we used it as a taxi to transport people & items to/from the beach, or for a leisurely drive around the neighborhood.

The home was CLEAN, the bathrooms were large, and there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. They provide linens, towels and even beach towels, which was great not to have to pack these items. The kitchen had everything we needed and the grills were large and used often (we cooked daily).

Nick & Amber were fantasic to work with - very prompt to respond to questions or concerns and notified us as soon as the home was ready for check-in (which was earlier than anticipated)! If I had one wish it would be that they would add a inside door between the duplexes that could be opened if families were renting both sides (kind of like adjoining hotel rooms). Having to go outside to get to the other house was not intolerable, but it sure would have been nice to have an easier access to the rest of the family. However, this will not deter us from renting again, as everything else gets an A++ from us!!
