Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Villages of Crystal Beach

This gated community is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Destin, just a short distance from the world's most beautiful beaches! The approximately 30,000 square foot pool has everything a resort pool should have with beautiful water falls and professional landscaping. There is also a tiki bar and grill kitchen at the pool if you want to have your own pool party.

The house is a specially designed Polynesian style 2 story with 2 master bedrooms which make it big enough for more than one family. The upstairs master bedroom has a king size bed and rap around balcony attached for those early morning cups of coffee or a place to sit and enjoy a nice glass of wine after a long day at the beach. The bathroom has a separate shower, jacuzzi tub and 2 sinks. The downstairs master is also very large with a queen bed and loads of closet space, and a large bathroom with shower. Also upstairs are a queen size guest room and a bunk room with bathroom just across the hall. The bunk room has a full/twin bunk bed, drawers under the bed and even a dresser for extra storage. There are also 2 baby beds (as well as other baby/children items) available upon request.

The living room and kitchen are open, making it a perfect space for gatherings with friends and family. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for cooking and entertaining. The dining room table seats 8 comfortably with room for more if needed, plus 4 stools at the bar for extra seating. There are TVs and DVD players in every room, including the bunk room so the kids can watch their own TV shows or movies.

We offer weekly packages, and weekend and monthly packages are determined by availability. At this time, reservations are limited to those over 25 years of age.

You'll be so happy you stayed here, you'll want to visit over and over again!!

Fantastic house and great pool area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 7 persons (grandparents, parents, and 3 kids) during the 4th of July week in 2016. The house is very well kept and nicely furnished with spacious areas, lots of toilets and WiFi and Satellite TV. We slept in the master bed room on the second floor and it is a very nice room with a balcony access and plenty of stow away areas so you can get that feeling of being at home. The kitchen area is also nice, where the whole family can enjoy breakfast or any other meal. On the patio there is a new (July 2016, it was delivered during our stay) BBQ, where you can cook your steaks to perfection.

The Villages-area is clean and calm, with an amazing pool area, and you have a free shuttle to the beach which is very good when you have lots of stuff to carry or the temperature rise above your own comfort zone. When it’s not too hot, it's only a 10 minute walk down to the beach, which is as the name says, very white with crystal clear water.

The fireworks down at the beach on the 4th of July was truly amazing.

There are many things to do in the surrounding area. Golf, where I think Regatta Bay is the best. Silversands outlet with cheap deals on known brands such as Ralph Lauren, Under Armour etc. Big Kahuna Water Park for the adventurous.

To summarize; the stay was amazing, the house in fantastic shape and the Villages of Crystal beach is a top notch area to stay in.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from vacation and it was great. We stayed at Home Swede Home two years ago and returned because of our great experience. The House has everything you need. The house is in a great location and very close to restaurants and a Publix grocery store. The house is just a few blocks away from the beach and there is a shuttle or you can walk. This is the perfect neighborhood to stay on your vacation in Destin . My kids enjoyed the swimming pool just as much as the beach . Thanks

Nice family stay at Home Swede Home in Villages of Crystal Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we've been to Destin and both times we've stayed at The Villages of Crystal Beach in different units. Area feels very safe and perfect for families. The location is great just a quick drive to other beaches or Destin harbor. It is a good hike to the beaches near these units and this year the beach was a little washed out and the chair/umbrella vendors and private beach areas really squeeze access. We found it easier to hop in the car and drive a few minutes to Henderson Beach State Park and have all the space and sand you could want.

Home Swede Home is beautiful and has a great floorplan. Some units have a bonus space on the 2nd floor for kids to lounge and this one does not have that but the one "kids" bedroom is well equipped with bunk beds and a television/dvd. The pictures are accurate and really do it justice. Just one short block to the wonderful pool that is perfect for afternoons and evening swimming.

I really hope the management company continues to keep Home Swede Home well maintained because it is such a nice property. When we arrived the leading edge of the first step up to the 2nd floor was broken. I noticed another review prior to our stay had mentioned that. The management company was responsive and came and took measurements to fix the step and I noted a few other wear items to keep everything in good shape.

The owner was great to deal with and very responsive to inquiries early on. Hope to be back next year!

Home Swede Home

  • 4 of 5

My family & I enjoyed our stay at the property. The kids' bedroom was smaller than we had imagined, but the kids enjoyed themselves as well. The property was nice. A few problems were that some of the items provided didn't work properly such as the ironing board and one of the two pack&play. Upon our arrival to the property, we noticed the bottom step on the stairs had been broken, and in the upstairs queen bedroom the cabinet on the entertainment center was broken as well. Overall, the property was decent.

Perfect home for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, clean and nicely furnished and decorated. Our group was 4 adults and 3 children for Spring Break. The home was perfect for us with plenty of space and close to the beach and Destin attractions. The neighborhood itself is very family friendly and felt extremely safe. Our kids had a great time making new friends and enjoying the community pool.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful. We had a group which included four adults and three children, and we had more than enough space to move and play in this home. It was truly a home away from home for us. Debra and Cameron at Seacastle were very helpful each time we called with any question, no matter how small. They even helped us book family fun activities for our stay! The home was close to the beach and near basically anything you could possibly want to do in Destin. We will definately be back to Home Swede Home in the near future.
