About Matthew White

Welcome to our listing for Galleon Retreat and most importantly we thank you for your interest in our beautiful beach house!

I am a Financial Advisor in Little Rock, AR. I have been in practice for over 10 years. I am married to my beautiful wife Kelly and we have three wonderful children. We have welcomed two daughters into our home through adoption and welcomed our first son in December 2015 and have served as foster parents for over 5 years. We are very passionate about foster and adoption and currently serve on the advisory board for "The Call", an organization created to mobilize churches to solve the problem of children in foster care or in need of adoption.

As a financial advisor I love the opportunity real estate provides as an investment and way to make passive income. I bought my first vacation rental in 2015 in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg and decided to diversify to Destin recently. I absolutely love Destin and the white sand beaches.

I own and manage 7 total properties, 5 in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge and 2 in Destin. Please feel free to check out all of my properties and the excellent reviews. I take great pride in providing our guest with a wonderful vacation experience.

Thank you for your interest in our property and we look forward to hosting your group soon.

Matthew White purchased this house in 2017

Why Matthew White chose Crystal Beach

I chose the property because of the contemporary design and intricate detail the builder went into and of course the Cabana Bar! It was different than any other property I have seen and provides a resort style feel for our guest.

What makes this house unique

The Cabana Bar, audio system and large tv's around the pool will make you not want to go to the beach. Not to mention there are 25 total tv's in the house!

Big and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is a big, beautiful home a short walk down a side street from the beach. We had 24 family members ranging from 3 months to 63 years old staying here together. The 4 person golf cart was a very nice amenity that made it easier to get young ones and toys and umbrellas to the beach and back.

The home has 8 full bedrooms some kings, some bunks, and a 4 bunk nook (no door, just a curtain) that shares a bathroom with one of the king rooms, making 9 bedrooms with lots of beds. If you have little ones, sound machines for the two bedrooms near the kitchen would be a good thing to bring. The kitchen is huge with two ovens and a very large island perfect for lots of food preparation. The living area just off the kitchen was much enjoyed as was the game room downstairs. The garage had a nice variety of toys to use at the beach.

Management was easy to reach and responsive when we contacted them about a few hiccups. If you have any problems, just contact them and they’ll take care of you.

No shampoo, blow dryers or toiletries other than a small bar of soap and liquid hand soap are supplied so bring your own. Salt and pepper is provided in the kitchen. There was also a blender and crockpot handy. Bring your own beach and pool towels.

Our favorite part of the house was the pool! We lived in and around it! The sound system and the 3 big screen TVs around the pool were such fun. The table and chairs in the shade of the house were much appreciated. There’s a big grill near the pool as well, but we didn’t use it. It’s the most fun, largest, well laid out pool we saw anywhere in our wandering around Destin.

The location of this house is ideal with stores and shops nearby yet the home is within sight of the ocean. The very top deck is a lovely spot for both sunrise and sunset and you can see the ocean.

We had a great stay at a great place!

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 13 moms and 14 teenage boys for a graduation celebration trip. This house is so spacious, and every room is lovely. The pool provided plenty of space for everyone to hang out and play. Our boys loved taking off on their bikes and heading one short block to the beach. They were back and forth all day from beach to pool...and also enjoyed the foosball and pool table on the 1st floor. The moms all loved the roof top deck at the end of the day for nightly cocktails. Many in our group said they would consider renting again with their extended families for a family reunions. This house was truly special and even with 27 people, did not feel cramped or like there were too many people...loads of space. Great memories made!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolute perfection! It was exactly what was presented online and more. The pool was large for all 16 kids to swim and have a blast. The spa was great for the adults. The inside was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We had 28 people and it did not feel crowded. The bedrooms were spacious and I loved that most of them had an outside balcony to provide time away from a large group if needed. The outside seating under the covered porch with TV was great. The property manager and owner are very responsive and easy to work with. We had no issues with anything working but they responded to questions quickly. The location to the beach is an easy 3 minute walk or quick ride with the included golf cart. I will recommend this house to everyone! We will be returning next year!
