About Stephanie DeVito

Stephanie is lucky to call Destin home, along with her husband Greg, 3 year old son and newborn baby girl. Originally from Atlanta, Ga, Stephanie spent her childhood vacationing in Destin and knew she wanted to call this slice of paradise home one day. Stephanie is thrilled to share her dream cottage by the sea with guests, so they too can discover the magic of Crystal Beach!

Why Stephanie DeVito chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

Stephanie and her husband fell in love with the quaint Crystal Beach area for its idyllic white picket fences and proximity to all the best Destin has to offer. As locals themselves, they know the dreamy lifestyle Crystal Beach offers just can't be beat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great house in a great location!! The home was well stocked, clean and comfortable. Loved the decor and flat screen TVs/ DVDs in every room. The location of the house is perfect, short walk to the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The owners were wonderful, and left a welcome gift that even had a treat for our dog! Great vacation, we would definitely stay again!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house! We really enjoyed our stay. Property was well maintained. Not that bad of a walk to the beach. I would definitely stay here again. Owner was great to deal with.

Great beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week at the beach and loved this house!! Amazing location in Crystal beach, really close to beach, grocery store, shopping. The house itself is just as pictured, even better in person. Clean, modern and spacious, it's really the perfect beach house. We hope to return soon!!

Nice Stay; Close to Beach; Good Amenities

  • 4 of 5

We had five adults and three children staying here. The location was great — a six-minute walk to the beach. This unit has three bedrooms. We gave the master suite to our son and daughter-in-law. We took the queen bed. Our bed was comfortable and we slept well. The king bed is very soft. We changed by putting the three kids in the master bed and the adults took the small room which has a bunk bed and a double bed. Much better. The kitchen is well stocked. Note: If you want to do a lot of cooking and will be using a knife, you might want to bring one with you. The knives are okay, but not what you might be used to for carving/preparing food. Plenty of dishes, utensils, cook ware and glasses. The refrigerator is full-sized and works great. The ice maker is nice and works good but we had enough people so we supplemented ice from the grocery. The oven and microwave are also easy to operate and work fine. The kitchen is spacious enough to give you room for a few people working at the same time. The laundry (just off the kitchen) was used extensively. It's easy when you can wash your clothes, bathing suits, and towels. If you find yourself short of anything, it's only a 5-minute drive to a Publix grocery. We had a small issue with a smoke detector going off for no reason. I contacted the owner and the response was quick and easy. There is an outdoor shower which we used when returning from the beach; this was great in removing sand/salt prior to going inside. A gas grill is located on the back deck. There is an outdoor swing and chairs on the front porch which we enjoyed . . . also a screened-in porch which was nice, too. There are some items provided which you might want to use at the beach: a beach cart, some floaters, toys, a beach umbrella, etc. We brought our own beach chairs and umbrella. That was perfect for us as we used two umbrellas on the beach. One thing: we went to the beach at around 8:30 AM. Upon arrival there were already plenty of umbrellas and chairs set up that people could rent. Down the beach, resorts set up umbrellas and chairs for their guests. If you want a good spot, you MUST go early. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this nice house. One recommendation: Replace the king bed with something a bit firmer . . . okay, A LOT firmer. If that bed was changed out, we would certainly entertain staying there again.

Great rental with easy beach access

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at the beach! The rental was very clean, with a well stocked kitchen and easy walk to the beach. Having the wagon and beach chairs and umbrella to use was a nice bonus as well. Stephanie was super easy to work with and very responsive. Ava (our one year old GSD) enjoyed the Destin dog park which was close by as well and we were very happy to find a rental that would allow us to bring her. Would definitely rent here again. Thanks for everything Stephanie!
