About Rebecca Callaway

Our family lives in the Midwest. We have a very hectic life trying to balance two demanding careers and the activities of a young daughter in grade school. Our goal with the Beach Orchid was to create a comfortable and beautiful escape to relax, have fun, and create wonderful memories.

Rebecca Callaway purchased this house in 2011

Why Rebecca Callaway chose Crystal Beach

We've visited many coastal communities through the years, but Destin impressed us with its stunning beauty and everything looks newer and more upscale than most coastal towns. We chose to buy in the Villages of Crystal Beach because of the amazing pool and amenities, as well as the unbeatable location. It is within walking distance to the white sandy beaches, premium shops, and great restaurants.

What makes this house unique

We like being able to drive to our vacation home instead of having to take a plane. We like being able to get away from our hectic life, yet still have all the luxuries, comfort, and modern conveniences of home. It's also easy to get around without getting lost, because everything that one would want or need can be found on one stretch of road.

Everything about our stay in the beach Orchid was great! Wish we could have stayed longer. Nice, comfortable and roomy home, terrific pool, great location, super responsive management, close to beach and shopping, fantastic weather—everything you want in a family getaway!

Easter week is spring break for many. This means crowds everywhere in Florida. The home, however, provides a private respite from the crowds. Owner provides a couple of days worth of paper products, but doesn’t allow leftover non-perishables. Plan to bring what you need or buy local. Great place! You won’t be disappointed!

Destin Delight!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for a Family was very clean, short walk to the pool and a shuttle service to the beach. We had plenty of room and everything we needed to have an enjoyable family vacation. Owners were very helpful and cooperative. I would highly recommend this home to families who want a delightful stay in Destin.
