About Rebecca Callaway, Manager

Our family lives in Birmingham, Alabama but grew up in the Destin, Florida area so the area feels like our 2nd home (and one we'll hopefully retire to). We love Destin and if you need more information about the area (things to do, restaurants, etc., we are happy to help).

Rebecca Callaway, Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Rebecca Callaway, Manager chose Crystal Beach

Eternal Sunshine is beautifully furnished and decorated and appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We only have a minimum of 3 days! The Villages has a lagoon style , zero-entry pool with hot tub and tiki bar and is close to the beach and shopping. The pool is the 2nd largest pool in Destin. It's our paradise and home away from home.

What makes this house unique

The Villages of Crystal Beach subdivision is loaded with amenities including a large lagoon pool and lounging areas, is just seconds from superb shopping, dining and entertainment options and is only a short 0.4 mile (less than an eight minute) walk to the Gulf via the Pompano Street public beach access. The dedicated walking/biking paths that run East/West (parallel to the Gulf) along Scenic Hwy 98 and numerous crosswalks make Crystal Beach ideal for families and those that enjoy an active lifestyle or just a leisurely sunset stroll along the beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had 5 people stay for a short weekend and we were so pleased! Not only is the house beautiful, spacious, and well maintained, but the neighborhood is as well. We cooked both nights and used the kitchen and enjoyed the beautiful pool as well. There was way more room than we could have needed and would rent again with a party double our size! Love the Destin area and will definitely return for more visits!

We are so happy we found this home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. Great Floorplan with 2 master suites. Beachy decorations and comfortable furnishings. We felt safe with the gated community. My daughter loved spending time out on the upstairs balcony. My son's favorite was the beautiful pool. I loved the location. Easy to get to everything. Walk one way and you get to the beach. (The wagon was a great help.) Walk another way is wonderful shopping.

I can't wait to tell all my friends! Thank you for your hospitality.

Only one suggestion, we had to purchase beach chairs and an umbrella. It would have been great if you had some we could of used. We will definitely be coming back to Erin's Emerald Isle.

Paradise in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

Erin's Emerald Isle was perfect for our winter getaway. Upon arrival we found everything we needed to start our stay in Destin. The home was clean and very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with staples we would need including a nice welcome basket of goodies.

The property managers left us a very helpful notebook with all the information on restaurants, shopping , emergency numbers and local attractions for us to explore. One of our favorite things to do was walking on the crystal white beaches and eating at one of the seaside restaurants, the views and the food were amazing!

This was our first time to stay in Florida for the winter and Rebecca and Paul made sure our stay was the best. If we needed anything they were on top of it.

The Villages of Crystal Beach was close to all the beautiful emerald coast beaches, desirable shopping malls, grocery stores and easy access to the great harbor.

The gated community was well maintained and the groundskeeper kept everything so beautiful, we enjoyed our walks around the neighborhood meeting a host of new people from all over the country. The pool and hot tub were a hit for us 😎?

We loved our stay in this beachy home so much that we have decided to relocate and retire here in Destin. Our property managers cared for this home like it was their own. Thank you Paul and Rebbeca for making our stay a perfect paradise in Destin !

Nice home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our two families of 4. Pool was convenient, but the walk to the beach was a little further than we had thought. Wagon was helpful for the longer walk. Plenty of room for us to eat at the kitchen table. Linens were plentiful.

We had a OUTSTANDING experience staying here starting with the booking with Becky, who is always responsive, easy to work with and just eager to make you happy.

The house, which is nice in the pictures, was even better in person after very recent renovations and new furniture additions in December. The house is very well taken care of and is in great condition. It has a great "beach" feel to it and the furniture and beds are all very comfortable and in great shape. THE UNIT HAS SIX LARGE SCREEN TELEVISIONS, with Cable TV, including a new 60" Samsung Smart TV in the family room as well as five other 40" large screen TV's scattered throughout the house, including one in each bedroom, some of which are Smart TV's. We had no problem connecting to Netflix and Amazon through ROKU. The WI-FI worked well and we had no problems.

Kitchen is well-stocked and even had unique courtesy items like a shrimp cleaner that I found useful on several nights. Becky also had a very nice welcome basket waiting for us on arrival filled with treats that the kids really enjoyed!

As far as the pool, you are just a 2 minute walk from one of the nicest tropical pools I saw in any complex in the Destin area, complete with a hot tub that we were able to use in the evenings. We also enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings just enjoying the breeze and on several nights, we could hear the waves from the ocean!

The location of the unit within the complex is GREAT! About an 8 minute walk to the beach and about 5 minute walk to the nearest restaurant and bar. There are dozens of restaurants and bars within a 10 minute walk including the fantastic Destin Commons with great shops, Whole Foods, bars, restaurants, ice cream parlors and even a movie theater. You don't even have to use a car unless you want to! You are also just a few houses away from the complex overflow parking area in the event you need it which was helpful when friends stopped by.

From the booking with Becky to an incredible stay at this house, we had a great time and have already spoken with Becky about returning in 2018! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS UNIT!

Great location and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home (June 2017) and found everything to be as described. The home was well taken care of, comfortable, and had all necessities. The location to the beach was very good and easy to walk to although I wouldn't suggest it in the middle of the day. No worries though because they have a convenient shuttle service (check schedule for times, etc.) The resort pool was nice and big, but as expected it was crowded later in the day. We felt like we were in a home away from home and I would certainly stay again. Loved the Destin area so hope to get back again soon!
