Description

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Crystal Beach - Nantucket House

Charming 6 Bedroom Beach Home - Unmatched for families or large groups of adults

**Nantucket House**

This is a great home for 4-5 families with children or up to 14 adults without children. Sleeps 22 - 23. Or if you have a larger group, we have 4 houses, all right next door to each other! (See VRBO listings # 649, 740231 and 471914).

Right ACROSS from the BEACH on Scenic 98, this incredibly nostalgic, Nantucket-style is home offers a beautiful, newly renovated kitchen, new carpet & furniture, plantation shutters, vaulted ceilings, and a completely remodeled 3rd floor with OCEAN VIEWS. Recent renovations have added modern conveniences for your comfort, while preserving the unique retro-charm of this large, New England-style beach home.

“Nantucket House” easily accommodates 14 adults and up to 9 children (in beds--not sofa sleepers!) with 6 BEDROOMS, including 4 KING Masters, a Triple Queen Bedroom (3 queen beds), and a 3rd floor Bunk Room with 2 sets full-over-full beds (yes, that’s 4 full-size beds). It also has 6 FULL BATHROOMS. And an added extra bonus for your large group, we have installed TWO sets of full-size washers & dryers.

There is also plenty of room for everyone to gather in the spacious living area and the open, custom kitchen and dining area has everything you’ll need to prepare and enjoy meals for your large group. You’ll love the beautiful screened-in private pool with plenty of outdoor deck space to enjoy relaxing mornings and evenings, semi-secluded with beautiful oleander trees. And when you’re ready for the beach – it’s just across the street!

We keep our home clean and well updated, and pay attention to amenities you expect, such as high-speed internet, nice flat-screen TVs, high-definition cable, high quality linens, hair dryers in each bathroom, and more. We also provide items our smaller guests may need like a high chair and pack-n-play.

The wide open spaces continue in the beautiful updated kitchen, with new high-end stainless steel appliances, including an extra-large refrigerator with a French door freezer. It has 2 ice makers - really nice when you’re feeding a crowd! In this well-appointed kitchen, you’ll find all the dishes, pans and utensils you may need, a Keurig D-Cup coffee maker, as well as a regular drip coffee maker, and even a few spices, to get you started.

About Jeff Marken

We have been in the Vacation Rental 'By Owner' business longer than anyone. Look at our low listing numbers here on VRBO. We own these homes, and are local. We personally ensure our homes are always clean, furnished well, and impeccably maintained.

Jeff Marken purchased this house in 2013

Why Jeff Marken chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Crystal Beach is location location location. It's quaint and secluded, with cottage-style homes, sidewalks, and white picket fences, and is right on the beach, yet is surrounded by all the best of Destin. Destin Commons is just across the street, and all the other family oriented shopping and entertainment experiences that make Destin a prime vacation destination are all around.

What makes this house unique

Four bedrooms with king beds and huge fifth bedroom that sleeps up to 14 on three real queen beds and two full-over-full bunk beds. Few homes offer so many king bedrooms for adult couples or older kids and still plenty of room for all the younger kids. Also great for large groups of adults such as ladies retreats of golfing trips for guys or gals.

This is one of the nicest and most unique properties in Crystal Beach. It's right on Scenic 98, is large and roomy, and provides the ultimate option for multiple or large families.

Great house and area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week and loved this house. It was our second trip to Destin and the Crystal Beach area is wonderful. It also was our second experience with Sugar Palm Rentals and we have been very pleased. I can't say enough about this house, tastefully decorated, great location, clean, and well stocked. We had 8 adults and 10 children from ages 16-7 yrs old. The four king suites for each couple was amazing and a must! The boys took the 3rd floor suite and the girls took the 2nd floor Queen suite, it was absolutely perfect. The kids had their space and we had ours. We walked everyday the short walk to the beach, which are absolutely beautiful. We also walked to local attractions like Camilles and the Crab Trap. The proximity of the grocery store, mall, and drugs stores were just a couple minutes drive away. Overall it was an amazing stay for a very large group. The area is so quiet and quaint and the reason we returned for a second year. The only drawbacks seemed to be that the wifi was disappointing and difficult to log into and we had several light bulbs burnt out over the kitchen and the ice maker never seemed to work the entire week. We didn't bother to call in the complaints to the rental company because we felt they were somewhat minor but if we returned we would expect them to be better next time. Like I said the property, location, and experience was fantastic. The small issues can be worked out. We are already planning for our Destin trip next October.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave your review, we appreciate it! We are happy to host our return guests and try to win your loyalty with great properties and excellent service! It sounds like Nantucket house was just perfect for your group and that you enjoyed the house, furnishings and location in Crystal Beach. We do wish you had contacted us about the issues you mentioned....no issue is too small or insignificant to us! We would have had one of our local staff to the house right away to reset the internet modem and replace the light bulbs that were burnt out. Besides losing out on the opportunity to "wow" you with our customer service we would have wanted to be sure those issues did not also impact the next guests using the house. Next time, give us a call! Our office is just a couple of blocks away so we are here to help when you need us. We are looking forward to hosting your family again the next time you come to Destin, be sure to contact us to make your reservation!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The beach was 2-3 min walking distance, plus the house had more privacy than most in the area. Great size for a group of 14 or more.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this house and location. We had a house full of adults and teenagers, about 20 people total and we never felt crowded. Lots of room and beds for everyone!! This house sits on a corner lot and is a short walk to the beach access. Was even surprised with a call letting me know the house was ready hours before we were due to checkin. Would highly recommend this house and location!!! Looking forward to a return visit!!

Senior sponsor

  • 5 of 5

We came to Destin on a senior trip with a total of 20 people . We were very pleased with every step. From finally finding a house to when we left to return home. We were emailed to check on everything before we left. Also received a phone call to see if they needed to leave a light on for us in wish they did with donuts waiting for us on the bar. We loved the house and our stay. Will us VRBO in the future.

Absolutely Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Destin for a wedding weekend, and we had this house and the Over the Top house. Both houses were in tip top condition, and we were greeted by staff upon arrival to help with the door codes. Everyone was extremely nice and friendly. Public beach access was closer than I expected, and not a problem to deal with at all! We are already planning our next trip back! Worth every penny!

Beautiful house - perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home in early October. Unfortunately the weather was in the upper 60s - low 70s but we still had an amazing time.

The house is absolutely gorgeous and has plenty of space. It was 8 adults and 4 kids in our group and we could have easily had twice as many people and stay comfortably. The house was very clean, and very well stocked. The kitchen was very wellittle stocked and there was plenty of sitting space around the table/breakfast bar area. The house is directly across from the beach - nearest beach entry is maybe a 5 min walk but there is a cart that works very well - we used it to take the chairs, umbrella, toys and volleyball to the beach. Since the weather was fresh (we are from Texas) we were only able to enjoy the beach for a few hours a day. It was not a problem - the mall is (with a Starbucks) is a 3 min drive. We also rented bikes from a little place that was a few min away (walking distance) & we rode the bikes in the morning for about 2 hours each day - (we took the sidewalk on Scenic 98) there were a ton of other bikers / runners. At night time we headed over to the Boardwalk for the Seafood Festival and it was so so much fun - a ton of food, live music, & beer (yet family friendly). We also went to the track which was maybe 10 min away - the teens and kids in the group loved it! Thank you very much for allowing us the opportunity to stay in this home. We truly enjoyed it and would stay again.
