About Katie Atwater

As an owner in Crystal beach since 2004, I personally manage 'Sand Dollar' in order to provide customized service to my guests. I own a Real Estate company specializing in luxury residences, second homes & investment properties. Living nearby enables me to be available to my guests and to keep this home meticulously maintained.

Katie Atwater purchased this house in 2004

Why Katie Atwater chose Crystal Beach

I fell in love with the charming streets lined with white picket fences. The height restriction on beachfront properties makes the beach area less crowded. Easy walk to the beach, Restaurants, playground, book store, coffee shop, and ice cream shops. Bike & walking path runs along scenic 98/ the beach for about 5 miles.

What makes this house unique

The fenced backyard offers lush landscaping and is perfect for taking an afternoon nap on the built in Hammock or grilling dinner by the pool. The private pool is one of the larger pools in the area ranging from 3-5 feet deep and can be heated.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had one of the greatest times of our lives here at the Sand Dollar! The house is absolutely gorgeous! We were out by the pool so much. It was always warm and so perfect for everyone of all ages. The beach was also a blast. We also went to the outlet malls and to the go-karts. The shower outside was very helpful after we came back from the beach. The kitchen is so great and so big! We loved all the decorating.

Best Birthday Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The property was awesome, clean and comfortable. My family and I really enjoyed our vacation and the proximity to the beach and other attractions were great! Also Katie was great to work with, she always responded to emails and texts in a timely manner. I've already recommend this property to friends and we will definitely visit again.

Best Beach House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family loves beach vacations. To quote my son-in-law, "this is the best house we have ever stayed in!" Just beautiful and everything you need!

The pool is a great size...the Chairs and umbrellas and carts were such a help...the bikes were enjoyed by the son-in-laws... kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need...pool towels were a huge help...great sitting areas... front porch swings were so fun to sit on late afternoons... pool area with tables and umbrellas and hammock and yard games and pool toys and floats ... outside shower and hose for getting the sand off... high end bedding and furnishings ... HUGE bedrooms with couches and additional roll out bedding options... short walk to the Hutchinson Beach access...all made for a great week. Katie, the owner, is super great and welcomed us with a beautiful gift basket !

We will be sharing this with our many friends who ask us about "where to stay".

Loved the Sand Dollar!

  • 5 of 5

We were worried about Hurricane Irma going into Florida the week we were scheduled to stay but thought it was far enough away that it'd be OK. We got a little wind & very little rain and 1 day of lower temperatures. The owner was very sweet & checked in on us and made sure we were prepared in case we got a storm & then came and heated the pool for us!

The home was beautiful and exactly as pictured. We'll definitely recommend to friends & family and will stay here again when we go back to Destin.
