Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Crystal Beach

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

*** Complimentary beach set up (2 chairs and 1 umbrella) March 13-October 31 ***

Tropical Breeze is a private home located across from Crystal Beach in the upscale community of Terra Cotta Terrace in Destin, Florida. Just a few minutes to the private beach access you will find yourself on a soft sugar-white beach with dazzling emerald waters.

Tropical Breeze is a three-bedroom, three bath vacation home which features a bright beachy decor, cable TV, VCR/DVD players in every room, a private balcony off the master suite to have your early morning coffee or late night cocktail, a garden tub in the master bath with shower for late evening relaxation, and a king-sized bed for your sleeping comfort. At the opposite end of the upstairs is a guest bedroom with two double-sized beds, a large walk-in closet, and its own private bath with a tub/shower combination. The downstairs guest bedroom offers a queen-sized bed and a private bath with a walk-in double shower. There is no need to fight over a bathroom, with each bedroom having its own private bath.

An outdoor shower, gas grill, and side deck make Tropical Breeze the perfect summer vacation home. Winter guests can snuggle up with their favorite book while enjoying the warmth of a cozy gas fireplace. Enjoy the tropical breezes with your fenced-in private pool (21 x 15). Guests can also enjoy the community clubhouse and pool, sauna, tennis courts, and sand volleyball pit.

Surrounded by lush landscaping on a quiet cul-de-sac, Tropical Breeze offers our guests a charming and safe environment for small children. We truly feel you will enjoy all the amenities our beach vacation home and community has to offer, and will come back to visit us year after year.

About Carol

Our journey began in late 2002 when we purchased our first vacation home called Tropical Breeze. We entered this adventure with open minds thinking we would purchase a home, hang on to it for five years, sell and then upgrade to a larger home we would eventually move into. We vacationed in Destin when our busy schedules permitted us to and we would take our shoes off from the time we arrived, and they stayed off until we left. Our days were spent at the beach burying our sons in the sand and enjoying the summer breezes. We felt this was a joy everyone should experience. The only way this could happen was to share our vacation home with others. The response from our guests was so overwhelming that we found ourselves turning families away. With additional planning and a lot of prayer, we purchased Tropical Paradise and Tropical Dreams in 2004. Six years and three vacation homes later (2008), we finally moved to Destin.

Carol purchased this house in 2002

Why Carol chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin is such a family oriented area to vacation and the beaches are absolutely gorgeous. Terra Cotta Terrace has a community pool, tennis courts, and a sand volleyball pit. The beach is a 4 minute walk and is gated. The community is centrally located along Scenic Hwy 98!

Perfect Family Meeting Place

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time at Tropical Breeze. Meeting our children and grandchildren is always wonderful and staying at Tropical Breeze made it PERFECT!! We had everything we needed for the week. Unfortunately, the weather did not always cooperate but we were able to have a Plan B. We are already planning our next family get-a-way!!

Lovely place - didn't want to leave

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Tropical Breeze for our first family vacation with our nine month old daughter and had high hopes for a special trip.

The house was lovely and clean. It was a great size for our party (3 adult couples and one baby).

The beach was SO CLOSE. A 3 minute walk at most (and that's with a baby). It was nice to have the chairs and umbrella already provided in the beach so no need to carry those down every day.

The house is about a 20 minute drive from the harbor area and located off the beautiful scenic highway - both mean that you don't feel like you are in the middle of a tourist trap but you can easily get to restaurants and shops if you want.

We really enjoyed our stay here and will never forget our baby's first vacation!

Home is comfortable, in very good condition and attractively decorated. Kitchen is well equipped. Owners are welcoming and very responsive to questions about locale and housekeeping.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were impressed with how owners kept up maintenance of property i.e. interior improvements , pesticide control, pool maintenance , and landscaping.

Great week celebrating our 35th anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We were able to take a last minute trip for our anniversary and the owner was wonderful to work with and answered all of my questions promptly. We've rented both houses and condos in Destin and we both agreed this was our favorite. We had our dogs with us and besides having a nice fenced in area for them to go to, the neighborhood was quiet (although it seemed that all the houses around us were occupied) and so nice for walking. We really appreciated the pick up bags that were available and all the grassy areas.

The house itself was even nicer than the posted pictures. Very, very clean so I didn't feel like I had to clean something before using it. The beds were comfortable, the towels were plush and the kitchen had all high end necessities. We were able to watch our Colts on the flat screen TV in the living room on Monday night.

The beaches on the Emerald Coast really are some of the most beautiful anywhere. It was so convenient to drive our car to the public parking area directly across from the private entrance to the beach. The complimentary beach chair set up was the best. They were always set up early and weren't taken down until late in the day unlike some of the services that start taking them down around 4pm.

We love the Donut Hole or Another Broken Egg for breakfast and tried to hit a different beach seafood restaurant each night. The owner recommended Stinky's Fish Camp at Santa Rosa Beach for seafood and it is now our favorite.

We will definitely rent from this owner again.
