About the property


160 steps from your front door to the beach board walk!!! Gorgeous two story beauty with a wrap-around porch on each level! Peek-a-boo water views from top balcony!

Stunning 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home located in the heart of Destin in the Crystal Beach neighborhood. This home has never been a rental so it is in excellent condition. This home was purchased empty! From the furniture to the dishes and linens everything is BRAND NEW!! The entire home has just been painted so everything is fresh! All of the furniture is upscale and newly purchased from Haverty’s furniture.

Enter the front door of this beach paradise and you will find yourself in the living room which can seat your entire group comfortably. After a long day at the beach unwind in this family friendly room and watch the huge 60” flat panel television. Bring your movies from home and use the new blu-ray player or watch one of the many cable channels provided for you. The living room, dining area and kitchen blend seamlessly together so that everyone is included in the gathering. The dining table seats 6 and there are 4 barstools for eating. Perch on a barstool and watch the cook prepare a fabulous meal in the chef’s kitchen. Top of the line appliances are complemented by brand new pots and pans, utensils, glassware and dishes. Huge windows in the living, dining and kitchen bring in the bright sunshine.

At the rear of the 1st floor is a master suite complete with its own bathroom and walk-in closet. A king bed dominates this room and the soothing blues and grays make this room a tranquil paradise. If you don’t want quiet, a huge, wall-mounted 40” television will broadcast your favorite show or watch a movie in bed on the new blue-ray player. French doors lead to the rear porch and outdoor pool. You can be lazy and stay in bed while the kids frolic in the pool but you can still keep your eye on them for safety! A pool alarm has been installed for piece of mind for the little ones in your party.

If you must do laundry while you are here, the large laundry room with extra-large capacity brand new washer and dryer will make the job easier. An ironing board and iron are provided for your use. Next to the spacious laundry room is a half bath for guests to use rather than the individual ensuite bathroom.

Go upstairs and discover an amazing selection of bedroom options. The main master bedroom is located at the front of the home and has access to the 2nd floor porch. You can see the ocean from this porch! This room is HUGE!! There is a new, plush king mattress with gorgeous bedding and a large, 42' flat panel television mounted on the wall with a blue-ray player. Additionally, if you have little ones that LOVE to sleep in your room, there is a queen sleeper sofa located at one end of this room. They can be with mom and dad but they have their own bed!! The bedding is located in the trunk in front of the sleeper. The master bath is grand, double sinks, a garden tub and separate shower. An oversize walk-in master closet completes this master suite you will love to call your own!

Right down the hall is a private guest bedroom complete with a queen bed. This room also has its own large 40” television with blue-ray player. No sharing televisions in this home unless you want to!

The bunkroom is kid-friendly and sleeps SIX people! Of course, they must have their own television and we made this one extra large- a whopping 50” because that’s what kids like! Again, no television is comlete without a blue-ray player. There is access with a sliding door to the upstairs porch from this room, also.

The bunk room and queen guest suite share a oversize bath that is convenient for both. Two sinks make getting ready to go a snap! A huge walk in shower is located in this bath.

All mattresses in this home are encased in zippered protectors that keep our bedding allergy free, dust mite free and bed bug free. This is what you deserve when you travel to make sure you have peace of mind your family is in a clean, healthy environment.

The entire first floor is carpet free! Designer tile and wood floors eliminate the worry of getting sand in the carpet. Upstairs for soft comfort, all bedrooms have new carpet with the bathrooms having a tile finish.

At the end of a long day on the beach, everyone can gather in the backyard! A new gas grill has been purchased so you can eat in rather than waiting in a long line at the restaurants. There is an eating table and two chaise lounges for relaxation while the kids work off their endless energy in the pool. In addition to the wonderful pool, there is a large grassy area perfect for lawn games!

As mentioned earlier, it is only 160 steps from front door to the beach board walk. The Tarpon beach access is located right near the home and you can see the sign from our driveway!! Walk by one empty lot and you are on the sand!! This lot next door to the home on the beach side has no home on it! This space provides plenty of privacy for you and your family.

There is a closet at the rear of the home that is equipped with a cooler with wheels, a cart for taking your items to the beach, pool toys and beach toys.

I know you are going to be surprised but in addition to all of the fabulous amenities at the house, we also include BEACH SERVICE for free!! Two chairs and an umbrella will be set up for you every day of your stay at the Tarpon Street beach access. We feel that including this free beach service will make your stay complete!! When you return to the house, there is an outdoor shower located right outside the front door so you can wash off your feet and toys before you enter the home.

This house has it all and ALL of it is brand new ready for our first inaugural season of guests! Don’t you want to be one of the first families to enjoy all of these great amenities?

When you are ready to venture away from this beach paradise, Destin Commons is a short 5 minute drive away. The Commons has just been expanded and includes numerous stores and restaurants along with a Bass Pro Shops Uncle Buck’s bowling alley and grill and a large RAVE movie theater.

To the west, Publix is directly across the street from the Commons and Walmart is a short trip away. If you go east, a 10 minute ride will take you to the Silver Sands Factory outlet stores. There is no shortage of things to do in the Destin area and the opportunities for recreation are endless.

Before you arrive, please spend some time surfing the internet on Destin. There are so many wonderful things to do here. In addition to deep sea fishing, pontoon boating, jet skiing and parasailing, there are many fantastic areas to explore. Look up Emerald Grande which includes shops and restaurants right on the Harbor. As you are walking the boardwalk, you can scale a rock wall, zip line or see all of the deep sea charters pulling in and watch while they clean the fish.

The Wharf at the Village of Baytown in the Sandestin area is another family favorite. Restaurants, shops, zip lining and more are located in a beautiful setting right on Choctawatchee Bay.

If you want to venture further, drive 98 E to Hwy 30A which I am sure you have all heard of! You will have a gorgeous scenic drive through many villages including Blue Mountain Beach, Inlet Beach, Watercolor, Seaside and Rosemary Beach.

If you are in need of another fantastic property please view our other property vrbo # 233929- a gorgeous three bedroom, three bath condo located beachfront in Destin.

Spring Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed with stainless appliances, cookware, utensils, everything we needed to be self sufficient during our stay, including laundry. We still went out for some meals, property is very close (<5 min) to retail, grocery, dining, and gas station. There are many excellent golf courses within a few minutes drive, too. Heated pool and backyard area were a welcome secluded retreat. Private beach was immaculate, with sand like sugar and clear, emerald water. Cart, cooler, beach chairs and beach toys all provided in the pool closet. We stayed in the upstairs master suite, and a morning cup of coffee on the wraparound porch listening to the sound of the ocean was perfect. Very very highly recommended for an amazing family or friend vacation. These property owners got EVERYTHING right.

Girls trip.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well appointed. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. The pool was clean and the grounds well cared for. The beach was less than a block away and was beautiful and again well maintained with chair and other services available. I couldn't have been more pleased. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to stay in the Destin area.

What an amazing house!

The home is immaculate. The open floorplan provides a very spacious living room/dining area/kitchen. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals at home. Laundry right off the kitchen and 1/2 bath. Generous size bedrooms - two large master suites, one large room w/6 bunk beds (slumber party area for kids), & super clean bathrooms.

The home is only a brief walk to the amazing white sand beach. The owners have even provided beach chairs, beach toys, and cooler in storage area and a cart to easily transport your beach toys and food.

This property also boasts a spectacular, private backyard. The heated swimming pool is a bonus. The owners have provided plenty of comfortable outdoor seating and a gas grill to use for your evening barbecues.

I will be recommending this beach house to family/friends and anyone looking for a great rental in Destin.

TEN STARS!! Girls trip to Destin was the best!! This house accommodated the six of us perfectly. Lots of space in the living room and kitchen areas. Kitchen was stocked with all the things you need. The bedrooms were spacious and we had all the privacy we needed. Short walk to the beach was convenient for trips back to the house for lunch and snacks. The pool was great for relaxing in the evening after a day of shopping and beach time. There were beach toys, chairs and even a cooler in the storage area so no need to bring those things. Will definitely be booking in the future for a family trip too.

Perfect for EVERYBODY!! This house is GREAT!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 stay for the week. When we walked in we could tell that the house was immaculately clean.. The beds were all super comfy.. The sectional living room couch was perfect for wrapping up the evening chatting or watching tv (very large tv w/ almost all of the movie channels). Huge wrap-around porch on the upper level was epic for sunrises and sunsets..

It takes 60 seconds to walk and get your feet in the sand from the front door.. There is an outdoor closet that houses various beach and pool necessities that were perfect for the stay (rolling cooler, beach cart, floaties, football, frisbee, etc.). The pool and yard were perfect as well. Plenty of seating to sun bath or just relax in general.

When we were leaving we were sad bc we felt like we were leaving our own house, it was that cozy. I couldn't have been happier.. The house has state of the art appliances (including washer and dryer).. I could go on and on.. We will be back next year!!

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down the best experience. The house has two master suites, which was perfect for the group we traveled with. The home was super clean and very well furnished. The location was amazing! It was within walking distance to the beach and many local restaurants. We did spend most of our time at the beach, but the pool was great too! We loved being able to cook in the kitchen, which was stocked with everything...all we had to provide were the groceries! We look forward to going back. It was the best vacation!
