About Claire Nuckles

I moved to Destin in 2008 after vacationing here and falling in love with the area. I have owned rental property in another state since 1995. I sold those properties this past summer and bought Crystal Beach Cabanas before I closed on the sale of my other properties. Therefore, I have many years of experience in the business and know how to take care of my guest and property. I personally manage the Cabanas in order to provide customized service to my guest. Living nearby enables me to be available to my guest and to keep the Cabanas meticulously maintained.

Claire Nuckles purchased this house in 2013

Why Claire Nuckles chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

Location, location, location Crystal Beach community is the best beach area in Destin. Crystal Beach is a lower density area in Destin. No high-rise condos. It feels more like a quaint neighbor hood with it's white picket fences and sidewalks rather than a loud,busy resort area. The Cabanas are a 1 minute walk to the beach. There are 2 public beach accesses. Take a short stroll down the beach to the Crabtrap restaurant for a cold drink or appetizers at the beach bar.Camille's is just around the corner a 5 minute walk and is a perfect outdoor place to get your morning coffee or smoothie. Evening dinner upstairs inside or out on the patio with fresh seafood or sushi.

What makes this house unique

This is why I bought the property. I loved the unique concept of 4 individual Cabanas with their own kitchen, living area, bedrooms, and bathroom with a washer and dryer. You can enjoy your family and friends but then retreat to your own Cabana for your privacy. Everyone has their own place to enjoy however they choose to .

Great place for family of 16

  • 4 of 5

This place was ideal for our family. We have 3 children all married and a total of 8 grandchildren. It was only a block from the beach and the pool was great. The only problem was that the kitchens could use an upgrade. There was a drawer front missing on one of the cabinets and the stove in one of the units only had 2 working burners. On the amenities it said there was a hair dryer (which didn't work) and also a high chair that couldn't be found. Other than that, It was a great set up for our family. The big dining room in one of the units worked out great the one day it rained so that we could all gather in the same place. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was due to the kitchens needing some work. There was also a lot of beach chairs and pool toys and surf boards along with a wagon so that we could take these things to the beach. Also the grill worked out great too. I would recommend this place for anyone with a family and children who wanted to spend time together but then could have their own place at night. We would definitely go back to this place rather than renting a big house.

We loved the cabanas at Crystal Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We love the area. Close to the beach, shopping, and many great restaurants. The property was perfect for our family reunion. We had 18 with us and the pool area was great!! Plenty of seating for all. There is also chairs and sand toys to take to the beach. We will definitely be back.

WONDERFUL PROPERTY!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family reunion at the Crystal Beach Cabanas! The property was even nicer than we thought! The pool is large and landscaped beautifully. The cabanas are very comfortable and clean. This property is perfect for a large group since the individual cabanas allow for privacy. Claire was lovely and very attentive to our every need. The beach was very close and easy to get to. Our family hopes to return here next year! I highly recommend this place!!!

Beyond All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express what an amazing layout the cabanas have. On top of that, they were immaculate & freshly renovated. Claire took incredible care of us during our stay. Not only will we be back as a group (high school friends for 30 yrs), we want to do our family vacations there as well. LOVED IT is an understatement!!!

BEST vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

OMG! What a fabulous place to vacation!! 8 adults with 2 small children spent a week at the cabanas and had a great time. (April 8-15 2017) The 4 cabanas were clean, fresh and had everything you'd need for your stay. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The heated pool was an absolute highlight for all of us, and of course for the kids. Plenty of seating with tables and umbrellas for your day at the pool. The beach was just a block away and with chairs and a wagon with beach 'stuff'....it was perfect. It was a pleasure to meet Claire and any concerns we had were quickly resolved.....like the pool light. Easy fix! This rental was THE BEST we've found and we will not hesitate to reserve it again. You can't go wrong with this rental.

Wonderful Stay in the Cabanas

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 families just finished up our stay from this property and can't say enough good things about it! We have stayed in Destin before and knew that this was an area we wanted to come back to. This time we came with 2 more families and the cabanas were a perfect accommodation for all of us. Each family had their own personal space when they wanted it and the outdoor area was fantastic for our daily gatherings!

The cabanas themselves are well supplied with everything you need and are kept very clean! The outdoor pool area was spacious and also clean! Claire even provides plenty of lounge chairs to take down to the beach and a wagon to haul them in. The beach itself is only a couple minutes away by foot. Even our littlest travelers had no problem making the daily trips to the beach.

We will definitely be looking into staying at the cabanas again on a return trip to Destin!
