About Stephanie DeVito

Stephanie is lucky to call Destin home, along with her husband Greg, 3 year old son and newborn baby girl. Originally from Atlanta, Ga, Stephanie spent her childhood vacationing in Destin and knew she wanted to call this slice of paradise home one day. Stephanie is thrilled to share her dream cottage by the sea with guests, so they too can discover the magic of Crystal Beach!

Why Stephanie DeVito chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Stephanie and her husband fell in love with the quaint Crystal Beach area for its idyllic white picket fences and proximity to all the best Destin has to offer. As locals themselves, they know the dreamy lifestyle Crystal Beach offers just can't be beat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great house in a great location!! The home was well stocked, clean and comfortable. Loved the decor and flat screen TVs/ DVDs in every room. The location of the house is perfect, short walk to the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The owners were wonderful, and left a welcome gift that even had a treat for our dog! Great vacation, we would definitely stay again!

Great Property!! Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation! We LOVED everything about our stay!! The owner was great to work with, so helpful and very fast to reply to any questions. This is the perfect beach house! Beautiful, comfortable and very clean! We loved the open plan, and had plenty of space with 4 adults and 3 kids. The house is so close to the beach, nearby restaurants, stores and the pool! We loved being able to walk to everything! Our family be dreaming of evenings on the porch swing and breakfasts at Camille's around the corner until our next trip! We would definitely reccomend this house for anyone traveling to Destin!

Adorable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Luca by the Sea! The moment we walked in it felt like home and it was everything we expected in a beach house. The owners went beyond our expectation when they bought a new beach cart that same day we noticed the one at the house was broke . We truly couldn't have asked for a better experience and will definitely stay at Luca by the Sea in the future!

Absolutely love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We were on vacation with another family and we stayed here, 7 guests total. This place was absolutely perfect for us! Plenty of room, washer and dryer was a life saver. The beach is beautiful and a short walk. It was nice having everything we would need at the beach already there. The kitchen was fully stocked utensil wise, the can opener was the one thing we couldn't get down lol. The house is just like the pictures. I just wish it had its own pool like a lot of the other houses 😄 We would definitely stay here again. The location is great, it's outside of the main part of Destin so there isn't a lot of crowds like by the harbor. FYI anyone doing a firework cruise on Thursdays, leave about 2 hrs before you have to be there. Finding parking at the harbor is a nightmare.

Very nice, well-kept home in a great little neighborhood. This was a refreshing escape from the crowds of Destin and we really enjoyed the week.
