A Crystal Shore's Delight!

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Only steps to a broad public beach area with bathrooms and outdoor showers

Conveniently located in the Crystal Shores neighborhood, our home offers the best of what the Crystal Beach area of Destin has to offer. Our home is close to the heated neighborhood swimming pool, and is only a short walk away from the Hutchinson public beach access (complimented by outdoor showers, public bathrooms, and a lifeguard station). Crystal Shores is a luxurious white picket fenced neighborhood located near the white sand beaches while still remaining close to the Destin Commons shopping mall, providing multiple entertainment and dining options you are sure to love.

The house has a large deck area, a comfortable front porch, a private master balcony, a quiet yard, and offers the following sleeping accommodations: (1) a queen bedroom and (2) an adjacent queen bedroom, separated by a full bathroom on the main floor. Up the stairs you'll find (3) a bunk room with a twin over full bunk bed and (4) an oversized master suite with walk in closet, private balcony, indoor seating area, and a luxurious master bathroom with both a stand up shower and a separate jacuzzi tub. Further up the stairs there is a (5) loft sleeping area with a twin daybed with a twin trundle bed underneath.

*Please be aware that this neighborhood association's rules prohibit rentals to guests under the age of 25 unless accompanied by a parent who is staying with them in the home, subject to eviction. And during the peak weeks of Spring Break and Summer, we can only accept 7 day rentals from Saturday to Saturday.

The property is very nice and we enjoyed the sensory.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and how the pool was right across from the house. We were able to access the beach easily. We loved how spacious the house was and how we were all able to fit in the house without being crammed. The two bath was a little difficult when trying to get ready but it was not a huge problem. The positives most definitely outweighed the negatives! Thank you for allowing us to rent the beautiful property.
