Changes in Latitude bring changes in attitude! Let your stresses melt away the moment you walk through the doors. Changes in Latitude is a beautifully decorated newer construction home in the prestigious, gated Villages of Crystal Beach in Destin, Florida.

Changes in Latitude is just across the street from the beautiful lagoon style pool with zero entry and an island with waterfalls in the middle. You’re surrounded by beautiful landscaping, music and plenty of beach chairs. Kick back and relax in the hot tub or enjoy an afternoon in the tiki hut area, complete with comfortable seating and large grill for preparing a great barbecue meal for your family and friends.

The beautiful white sands and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico are just two short blocks from the neighborhood. Take a leisure stroll, a short drive or, better yet, take a ride on the Sandy Express Trolley to one of the nearby beach accesses. The Sandy Express Trolley is a free service provided by the Villages of Crystal Beach for all of its visitors. They’ll even come pick you up when you've soaked in all that the beaches have to offer. Note: The Sandy Express Trolley service is only available during peak season.

Need a day of shopping and pampering? You’re in luck! Destin Commons is right across the Emerald Coast Parkway (Highway 98) from The Villages of Crystal Beach. Here you’ll find plenty of specialty shops, restaurants and a movie theater. Still not enough shopping? The Silver Sands Premium Outlet with more than 100 outlet stores is less than 5 miles downs the road.

How about a day of fishing with the kids? Bass Pro Shops is in Destin Commons so you can pick up all of the necessary gear if you left it at home. The Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier is just a quick 20 minute drive west on the Emerald Coast Parkway. They have very reasonable rates for a day’s-worth of fishing. Didn't bring your fishing gear and don’t want to buy any? Not a problem, you can rent all of the equipment you need right at the pier. They also have a discounted rate non-fishing spectators.
Not the fishing or shopping type? Don’t worry, we have the golfers covered too. The Regatta Bay Golf & Country Club, The Kelly Plantation Golf Club, The Emerald Bay Golf Club and The Indian Bayou Golf Club are all within four miles of the front door of Changes in Latitude.

So, maybe you’re the more adventurous type. Let the adrenaline flow with nearby jet skiing, parasailing, sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, tubing and paddle boarding.

Need a day to just sit back and relax? Start your morning off with a fresh cup of coffee or tea on either the second or third floor balconies – they both have a beautiful view of the lagoon style pool. Hungry for lunch? Don’t worry, there are several local restaurants that will deliver food right to your door. With choices like Italian, Thai, Chinese, vegetarian, pizza, barbecue and café style food, you’re sure to find something you like. Time for dinner? There’s a gas grill on the front porch for grilling up your favorite dinner with easy clean up. Throughout the day, enjoy high-definition TV or DVD movies in either of the two spacious living rooms. You can also enjoy free WiFi throughout the three floors of Changes in Latitude.

Let your Changes in Latitude bring changes in attitude!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We’re excited to welcome you to Changes in Latitude, our home away from home in the Villages of Crystal Beach. When we aren’t enjoying our place in Destin, Florida, we’re at home in Floyd Knobs, Indiana. We are the Riddles – Jon, Karen, Eric and Ellie. Jon is a Business Systems Analyst for a manufacturing company based in New Albany, Indiana and Karen is the Human Resources Coordinator for a medical imaging company based in Louisville, Kentucky.

Why the Owner Chose Villages of Crystal Beach (Destin, FL, USA):
When we got married, we started tossing around the idea of owning vacation rental property. We always kept our eyes on the market for the right opportunity. As we vacationed, we always kept note of the places we visited because we wanted to make sure that wherever we started this venture, that we would always be excited to use the home for our own family vacations. In the fall of 2014, we rented a home in the Villages of Crystal Beach for our fall break vacation and immediately fell in love with the neighborhood. We quickly found our realtor and started touring at all of the homes that were for sale in the neighborhood. We loved everything that we saw, but decided to sleep on it to make sure we were making the right decision. We returned home to Indiana. A week later, we decided the time and opportunity was right for us and decided to purchase 210 Grand Key Loop West.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefits of this home include beautiful views of the lagoon pool from both the second and third floor balconies. With the extra living area, master bedroom and bunk room on the third floor, its almost like you have an extra 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom condo. The house is just steps away from the beautiful community pool, hot tub and tiki bar. Having 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, you can bring some of your extended family on vacation with you. The large living area on the first floor is great for all guests to gather.
