Love the location! The beach is literally steps away!! The property was clean, neat and very comfortable. The management team and staff were very professional and so helpful accommodating my family and I with an early arrival. The complimentary umbrella and chairs are a great perk. Having Camille's across the street was awesome as the food was delicious! We will definitely be back to this area!!
Our crew travelled to the Destin area for a baseball tournament/vacation combo and we were thrilled with this home and the Crystal Beach area! Highlights for us were:
Beach: The Barracuda access was a short walk just two blocks away from the house. Crystal Beach is gorgeous and we found that going later in the day (3-4pm) meant less crowds. The 2 daily beach chairs/umbrella set up was nice but we had 6 adults which meant we were still hauling chairs and umbrellas. Not a huge problem, but just something to note for larger groups.
House: This house is so cute! Everyone had ample room to spread out both inside and outside, and the kids loved their bunk rooms. The entire neighborhood is just precious (sidewalks and white picket fences) and very quiet even during a popular travel time. We loved that this location was close to everything (restaurants, grocery stores, attractions) but also a bit removed from a lot of the high rise condos and super heavy traffic.
Pool: Our kids really enjoyed the pool and we were relieved that it was shaded in the late afternoon/early evening which made sitting outside so enjoyable with a little beach breeze. I was a little worried about the pool being too small after seeing pictures but it really was a great size for what we needed. After walking the neighborhood and checking out a few other pools close by, I would say this is one of the larger pools for this area. The pool and beach toys provided were used often and much appreciated!
Literally the only big con for us with this house was not having blackout shades on the bedroom windows (it was super bright in our rooms by 5:45am each day). Still, we had the very best time and made the loveliest memories with family and friends! Highly recommend this lovely home in beautiful Crystal Beach!
