About Vacation Happily, LLC Property Managment

The beach house of Stress Relief is my family's second home. We have lots of photos of not only our family reunions there, but of our repeating guests.

I love having wedding groups and family reunions that return each year. It is rewarding to be a part of so many memories being made.

Judy Bernard and the Bernard family

Vacation Happily, LLC Property Managment purchased this house in 2001

Why Vacation Happily, LLC Property Managment chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

The neighborhood of Crystal Beach is the quiet, family area of Destin. I love being just 2 minutes to get into the water. In the summertime, the traffic along Hwy 98 is heavy, and from my house, you don't need to drive to go to the grocery, convenience, or souvenir shops. They are a block away. Within a 4 block walk, you will find a bowling alley, sports bar, casual and fine dining and the Destin Commons Mall with it's arena theater and more shopping.

What makes this house unique

The beach house provides lots of space for large families. 5 of the 6 bedrooms have king beds. 4 of the 6 bedrooms have private baths. With a big group, the 3 full kitchens do come in handy.

The private heated pool is a fun way to cool off or play a volleyball game. It can be heated for $30 daily. The hot outdoor shower is perfect for rinsing off the white sand from the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent location with plenty of room. A few maintenance upgrades/improvement (minor, but still important) and this house would be a definite winner! We had a fantastic stay as weather was perfect; access to beach very easy, shopping/restaurants/attractions very close by and we enjoyed the low-key atmosphere, peaceful & friendly area. Thank you for opening your home so others may enjoy what you have found!! Much appreciation from all of us to your family..

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great size for our family. We used two of the three kitchens for a wedding supper for 35 people. All the bathrooms came in handy for family and friends waiting on hotel rooms. We highly recommend this home!

The sunny step of our US trip

  • 5 of 5

We had only one regret during our trip in the US which is to not having spend more time in this wonderful beach house. We had of course plenty of room for us 5. Kids didn't wait long to take advantage of the pool. The house has all the necessary equipment. Only 5 minutes walk to the white sand beach. In the evening Destin is a very enjoyable town with a lot of animations.

Un grand merci pour ce formidable moment.

Fun in Destin, Florida

  • 4 of 5

Our 3 generation family of 14 enjoyed a wonderful week at Stress Relief. Large bedrooms with bathrooms ensured each family had space to themselves. The large living, kitchen, dining space made meal prep, eating & playing games so much fun. The sugar sand beach & the pool area was the favorite spot for all of us. We did eat out two times, enjoyed a trip to Crab Island & a day at The Track. A wonderful time for our family to reconnect.

Thank you Judy, for sharing your beach home. Pat

5 day run

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the beach house if stress relief. Every inch of the house was used by our family of 15. Plenty of room and space. We had evening dinners and breakfast in the large kitchen. We used the pool kitchen for the kids snacks and drinks. The beach was a short walk and there were plenty of shopping stores nearby. We were very pleased with the pool and decks. It was truly wonderful

The Beach House was everything as described! My family and friends all were very comfortable, in the roomy house, especially liked the decks, with each bedroom having it's own private sitting area. The short walk to the beach was always fun, and the beach was the most beautiful Flordia beach we had all seen! The weather was perfect, for the helicopter ride, chartered fishing, pontoon for a day, and all the beach and pool time! Best vacation EVER!! I highly recommend to all! Thanks for sharing!

Wanted to drop a line about this property. Just spent a week in June at Stress Relief. Wonderful family vacation. The weather was beautiful and the house was as described to a T. Plenty of room for our party of 19. The pool was great for all seven grandkids. Easy walk to the beach and close to our favorite eateries. Looking forward to our next visit next year.
