Whether you're on a spring break trip, school vacation with the kids, or want to spend the holidays, a beach vacation can be just the right answer. Who doesn't love sugar-white sand between their toes or floating in warm crystal water? And even better it's only a couple blocks from our home. You can call the seasonally trolley that will transport you there or you if you want its just a short 5 minute walk to the beautiful white sands of the Emerald Coast.

Plus the neighborhood is a gated and private community with as amazing beach entry style pool area that has a tiki hut/bar and grill.

Why Conor and Michelle chose Crystal Beach

We purchased this home in 2010 when we were stationed here with the Air Force. We were so thankful to have a chance to live in the beautiful Emerald Coast and have a laid back lifestyle after going though a hard fought but victorious battle with cancer. We decided life was too short and we should make the most of life and decided to purchase this gem and live life to its fullest in this gorgeous neighborhood, which is close to the beach and has a great pool and environment to experience. Living only a couple of blocks from the beach allowed us to go to the beach and enjoy the white sand and beautiful water as often as we wanted to. The location of our house is great since we live close enough to be able to walk to the Commons (a shopping mall) and other surrounding shopping centers and restaurants in the area. After living in this house for almost 4 years we had to move to a larger home as we expanded our family. However we enjoy this house so much we want our family, friends and you and your family and friends to be able to experience the same love and joy that we did and want you to be able to make memories here as well.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhood, location to the beach and the lagoon style pool with a grilling area, tiki bar and lounge area with a TV.

Beautiful place! Close to everything your looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The home is inviting and perfectly neat and tidy. It's super close to shopping and restaurants. It is also a great place for families. Our kids loved the bunk beds the huge kitchen booth. The trolley will take you to the beach in just minutes. This condo is super close to the awesome pool. It's right by the corner of it. We will definitely stay here again.

Perfect for our baseball tourney trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was nicely decorated, very clean, and everything was in good working condition. We had kids on the bunk beds and one family per bedroom. The master is the best room with a private bath and plenty of space. The extra 1/2 bath downstairs was a lifesaver. The pool is literally out the front door about 20 steps and was amazing. There was plenty of shade at the pool and it was also very clean. We used the grill one night to cook our burgers so we could have a nice dinner by the pool. We walked the short walk to the beach without any issues. It is a small public beach access in between two private beaches but we had plenty of room for our chairs and umbrellas. One note, parking is a little but of as effort for the 4th car if you have one. The overflow parking gets full very fast all limit to 3 cards if you can. Overall we had a wonderful time and are still friends with all 12 people that were in the house with us all week!

Lovely Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5

The Carey's house is perfect! We had two families- four adults and five children. There was more than enough room for all of us and The kids loved having bunk beds and twin beds to share! Everything was exceptionally clean and ready for us when we arrived!! Thanks to a full kitchen we were able to pack lunches for the beach and cook dinners rather than taking five kids out each night. You can't beat how close the pool is and how gorgeous it is! The kids loved the short walk to the w such too. It's great to have the beach and pool option. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back again!!!! Thank you Conor and Michele for sharing your beautiful home!

Enjoyed our experience

  • 5 of 5

Conor and Michelle were very easy to work with and accommodating in every way. We were a family of 11. 6 adults and 5 children. Four of them were 3 years and under. The age of the four are a little important as trying to keep them happy was/is a chore in itself especially when you are away from home. However, we were able to not only accommodate them but were able to keep them happy at the home and on the beach for the entirety of our stay.

Their home is very well maintained and contains ALL of the conveniences that would be needed for a stay away from home. We were comfortable and had enough space for all family members to be comfortable and feel right at home for a week.

The location of the home is ideal. However, the distance from the beach is convenient but still a bit of a chore for us with these small children when you are still needing to lug items that are needed for them (i.e. diapers, toys, coolers, etc.). This was not a breaker for our decision to choose this location. We only understood that once we were at the beach, we are at the beach. The trolley was ok in some ways but small so we could not load all of our belongings into it and resorted to using our car to drop off everything on the beach with someone, come back and then travel by trolley back to the beach access.

The beds in the upstairs part of the home are a little uncomfortable but still, the rooms are nicely decorated and each had television and dvd players to accommodate everyone. The dvd players became an extreme value at night when settling children down for the evening and knowing full well that not everyone wanted to watch the same movie.

The pool location was PERFECT for us. We came off the beach and then went to the pool in the evening. The water temp was just right for everyone including the littlest one (2 years old). The deck was kept clean and overall the entire property was kept clean thanks to the amazing staff there.

The only true problem we ran into was that 3 life vests were stolen from right off the front porch of the home our first evening in. While we were extremely aggravated and angry (because, seriously, who steals from kids), we also understand that we were not smart to leave valuable belongings out over night on the front porch instead should have put them to dry on the 2nd floor balcony.

Conor & Michelle thank you for allowing us to make some great memories while our children are still young! We hope to return again in the future!

Perfect family vacation! We had 3 families, a total of 10 people, that stayed in the house and it was plenty of room for everyone. Amazing times at the pool, nice morning strolls and the walk to the beach was simply pleasant. The Carey's are SUPERB and tended to our needs promptly. We definitely will be staying again and would recommend this home and the Carey's to anyone. THANK YOU!

Couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our vacation! The house is so nice and offers quick access to the beach and fun in the pool. It was the perfect place for us to take our 18 month old for our first family vaca! Conor and Michelle are so hospitable, I think they've thought of everything! So much nicer than a hotel, we will definitely be checking this VRBO the next time we are in Destin! Thank you!!
