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

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom

Formerly known as Living the Dream, this vacation home is being spruced up and renamed Arcadia.

This gracious three story, four bedroom Mediterranean style home resembles a castle-like villa with its elegant curved entry staircase and terracotta roof crown. In fact, this Destin vacation home is located within the upscale neighborhood of homes known as Terracotta Terrace which is adjacent to Scenic Gulf Drive. This privileged community has double tennis courts, a space for sand volleyball as well as a private swimming pool complete with an expansive sun deck, showers, restroom facilities, dressing rooms and even a sauna. Not that you will need to use the dressing rooms since Arcadia is conveniently located just steps away. It’s also just a short scenic stroll to the crystal white beach and jewel toned waters of the gulf.

Arcadia’s 3,500 square feet of space provides ample room for everyone and comfortably accommodates up to sixteen guests. The first floor has a two car garage that leads into guest quarters that include a state of the art “Media Room” and two bedrooms that share a full hall bathroom. The first floor patio features an outdoor pool table as well.

The second floor has a spacious Great Room with sunny windows and glass doors that lead out onto one of the covered balconies. This open space has rich travertine flooring that sweeps from the living room into the dining and kitchen areas. This area is handsomely decorated in a tropical theme including leather furnishings that face a flat screen TV. There is also a kid’s media room adjacent. A dining table sits in one part of the room under a vintage chandelier. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances which includes a gas island range, oven and a large side by side refrigerator. Black granite countertops include a multi-sided bar with raised seating which creates a special hub for serving savory seafood appetizers. This beach home is wonderful for entertaining since it has high tech surround sound systems, CDs, DVDs and flat screen TVs in every bedroom. The second floor covered balcony has a gas grill along with a table and outdoor seating for the enjoyment of dining el fresco. This interconnects to the upstairs balcony via a beautiful spiral staircase.

The third floor has another Guest Bedroom with and seating area with a Sleeper Sofa. The rest of this floor includes the opulent Master Bedroom Suite that has molasses toned hardwood flooring, a comfortable king sized bed, a spacious living area and access to its own beautiful balcony. The adjoining walk in closet is so huge that it houses a queen bed. This luxurious suite has a big private bathroom that is richly accented with granite counters and travertine marble flooring. It includes two vanities with individual sinks, a corner garden tub and a separate glassed in walk-in shower.

On top pf the home there is a rooftop sun deck that offers panoramic views of the distant gulf and is the perfect place to view the spectacular sunsets. If you are ever able to pull yourself away from living in the home, you will find popular beachfront restaurants, world class shopping, golfing and area entertainment are just minutes away by car so enjoy!

First Floor: Queen bedroom, Twin Bunk Room, full hall bathroom, laundry room.

Second Floor: Living room, kitchen, dining room, media room with Queen Sleeper Sofa, full bathroom with walk in shower only.

About David

For over thirty years Ocean Reef has distinguished itself as the leading vacation rental property management company on the Emerald Coast. Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach. Steeped in a tradition of hospitality and exemplary service, we pride ourselves on providing an unmatched vacation experience.

Why David chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Crystal Beach is home to colorful classic-styled beach cottages, intimate condominium buildings, white picket fences, meandering sidewalks and quaint eateries. This community is family-centric and here, the unwinding is easy! But don’t think excitement isn’t on the menu though as this area features the Destin Commons – home to upscale shopping, multiple dining options and venues ideal for entertaining the entire family. Additionally, two of the most highly rated golf courses, Kelly Plantation and Regatta Bay, are just seconds away

Amazing Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Arcadia for our yearly family vacation to Destin. This home suited all of our needs! The house is in a great location! I like the fact that it was in a nice neighborhood close to the beach, and near all the Destin attractions. The house itself was wonderful! Enough space for our growing family, and enough kitchen space so I could comfortably cook dinner and prepare meals. A huge plus is the owner allows pets so I could bring along my little yorkie. We enjoyed having the community pool to cool off after our daily visits to the beach. Great house, easy walk to the beach, beautiful neighborhood. I would recommend it to any of my friends and.
