Why Stephanie DeVito chose Crystal Beach
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!

Very clean & well stocked!
The property and house were well maintained and very clean! The kitchen was stocked nicely with all we needed, and plenty of towels were provided. And everyone enjoyed the chocolates left by the owner...thank you!
The house was spacious and held our group of 8 comfortably. As another reviewer did, we gave the master bedroom to our son and daughter-in-law and took the guest bedroom with the guest bath in the same area...and the kids in the bunk room. The bedrooms were spread out nicely so everyone had privacy, as well as 4 TVs to keep all ages happy! The sofas were nice and comfortable as well!
It was so easy to use the keypad to enter and exit, and the pool was close and easy to get to and not crowded.
The beach wasn’t far away...a 10 minute walk... but we chose to have one beach day at Henderson Beach State Park directly to the the west of Crystal beach, a very short drive and a lot less crowded. We packed coolers, set up 2 tents and enjoyed the day.
We loved the cute neighborhood with the white picket fences and beautiful landscaping and enjoyed the porch swing, as the weather was perfect!
Another perk of this area is the fact that you can get to several places...restaurants etc...without getting out on busy 98. And Publix is directly across 98 for last minute groceries etc.
It was a great week with the family...thanks so much for sharing your beach house!
I cannot really say more nice things about this vacation rental property. It is literally one if most clean, pristine, high class rentals we've ever stayed in. It is in the most adorable cottage community in Destin. The pool was great and very refreshing, especially on those super hot beach days when you just want to get into some clean water and cool off! The set up of the interior of the house served our family well. It was me and my husband, my two little girls, and my parents. We all got our own corners of the house to retreat to, when needed. The kitchen is very roomy, and a delight to cook in. Has just about all cooking utensils you would need, plus a regular coffeemaker and a Keurig!! One thing we noticed it did not have was a cutting board, but that didn't bother us at all! The owner supplies literally everything you need for a very homey, comfortable stay, minus your clothes, beach towel, food/ingredients, and detergent. A fantastic feature for us was the nice amount of beach equipment and toys! Also, the outdoor shower has HOT water! I've never had a shower outdoors with a hot water option. The owner is as sweet as pie, and was fantastic at communicating! We actually were coming to our vacation right from a immediate family member's funeral, and we checked in to find a vase with a bouquet of fresh flowers and a condolences card from the owner...how great can she be really? It was just the perfect stay. One very minor drawback for us was the distance to the beach. We have done condo vacations in the past, do we were used to having a very minimal walk to the beach. I would say the walk to the beach is somewhere between a mile to a mile and a half. But there is parking at the entrance and we never had issues parking there for the day.
If I were you, I'd say jump on this rental, while you can still book it for your week. Best experience!
Great cottage and neighborhood near the most beautiful beach! Very welcoming hosts.
The cottage was immaculate, check-in very easy and Stephanie was a joy to work with. There were a couple minor issues which she cleared up immediately and we had a great time. Perfect for 4 adults and 2 young children...great location, kitchen, front porch and plenty of room! Look forward to visiting again.
The owner is very nice and helpful. Great home for anyone wanting to take a trip to Destin, FL!
Loved this house!
Loved our stay at this property. It is clean, updated, and tastefully decorated. Short walk to beach and pool is one block away. I would stay here again!
Pleasant Winter Break!
Property was well maintained with easy access to the beach, grocery stores and shopping. There were plenty of linens and kitchen utensils, large refrigerator, dishwasher and stove. There was a large TV in the main room and additional TVs in each bedroom. The only lighting in the living room is overhead, so if you want to read at night it would have been nice to have had a table lamp or floor lamp beside one of the couches. The property is located in a nice, quiet, safe neighborhood The yard has some fencing but it is not enclosed - so we had to keep our pets on leash all the time. (But that was OK.) It was an easy walk to the beach, whole foods, pet smart, Cracker Barrel and more! We would consider staying here again!
