About the property

3/2.5 With Great Outdoor Spaces Only Seconds To The White Sandy Beach!!!!

This white picket fence is the perfect vacation get-away for the laid back family or 2 to enjoy everything that Destin has to offer. While conveniently sequestered on the quieter residential side of Crystal Beach, tenants are still only seconds to the beach and minutes to all of the amenities that Destin has to offer. Not only is the beach with in walking distance, Destin Commons (movie theater, restaurants, bars, stores, Whole Foods, etc.) is only a 10 minute walk away. With everything so close, once you park your car it can stay parked!

This recently updated house has an open floor plan that flows gracefully from the kitchen out to the pool (very easy to keep an eye on the little rascals!!!). The outdoor living areas add to the charm of this beach house with a large porch and two separate decks. The decor inside will definitely remind your group that you came to the beach to have fun!

The spacious living areas inside the house give the guests a well deserved break. Curl up on the couch with the 65" TV and enjoy the game or movie. Or find a little seclusion in the 2nd living room to read that book you've been trying to finish. To enjoy the fresh Florida sunshine guests have several options around the house; watch the sunrise on the back porch or the sun fade on either the front porch or the Master Bedroom's deck.

All furnishings within the house have been purchased in the last two years. Sleep comfortably on any of the several beds in the house and wake up cheerfully to the chirping birds playing in the birds bath and on the branches outside. The Master Bedroom has an enormous king size bed (actually it's just a normal king they all seem huge) the is well secluded from the rest of the bedrooms. The other two bedrooms have a Jack-and-Jill(ish) bathroom to share. One is a queen size bed with a nice view of the early sun in the east, the other is a twin over double bunk bed with a trundle to sleep all of the little ones! Downstairs in the two living rooms are two pullout couches to sleep 12 comfortably!

We had a great time. The house was excellent and in a great location near the beach. The owner and management team we’re attentive to any needs we had. Definitely, a place to come back.

We will definitely be returning

  • 5 of 5

Words really cannot describe how much we loved this entire experience. The house is absolutely beautiful. The pool is very roomy and secluded. I could not believe the location! It was a very short walk to the beach, and right in the heart of Destin. Plenty of room for us and our 4 children. The owners were amazing and very kind. I think we all cried a little when we had to leave! Cannot wait to return!

Awesome Trip, GREAT Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful family trip and our first ever time to Destin made even better by this home. Perfect location (a block away from the beach and two blocks away from a great coffee shop), wonderful set up for a family with kids (nice layout, comfy rooms and separate master suite) and a very responsive owner (on top of his game to be sure you have a good overall experience. We will be back for sure next year!

We had a great stay at Destin Picket Fence

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The house had everything we needed and the location was so convenient to shopping, restaurants and the beach. We didn’t use the pool because it was too cold and not heated but I am sure it would be great in the summer. Especially loved that the back patio had a gate so our kids could still play outside without worrying they would get too close to the pool. Management company was very responsive to questions. Our dog loved it as well! Would definitely stay here again!

The house is within easy walking distance to several restaurants, bars and attractions, but most importantly only precious seconds from the white sandy beaches the Emerald Coast is known for.
