About Debbie McDonald

My husband and I have been in the real estate business for the past two decades as new home builders, developers, remodeling and most recently sales. I am a Real Estate Agent in Oklahoma very close to Ft. Sill, which is the military's largest field artillery base. We have three grown boys, 1 daughter-in-law and 2 grandbabies. This Beach house in Destin is the first of many we hope to acquire, remodel and be able to share with others. We have discovered our love of travel. To be fortunate enough to combine that with the love of what we do for a living makes vacation rental property an exciting adventure for us. We hope you will follow us as we add properties to our portfolio and that you will love them as we do. Ask me about our Military Discount to thank you for your service.

Why Debbie McDonald chose Crystal Beach

I love Carribean Dunes because of the sense of community I have when I am there. It doesn't feel as touristy or as crazy busy as some other area's get. Scenic 98 dead ends at Henderson State Park just a couple of blocks west which minimizes the traffic to our area. Crystal Beach is so close you can hear the ocean at night. Just a quick walk across the street to the beach access and you're there. I love the early mornings on the balcony with a cup of coffee and the ocean view while I watch the joggers, bikers and walkers going down the sidewalk in front. Camille's is on the next corner for a snack or cold beverage any time of day. It is the perfect location for a laid back but fun-filled vacation with the family.

What makes this condo unique

We love creature comforts and plan to spend much time in Destin #205, so we have remodeled and furnished it as we like it and as we live. My husband loves his television time so 3 smart technology flat screen TVs flank the bedrooms & living room. High quality furnishing, stainless appliances, new washer & dryer combo, white washed wood look tile throughout, granite countertops, warm light fixtures and a kitchen outfitted with so many amenities, Ninja blender/smoothie maker, Griddle/sandwich maker, waffle maker, Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and so much more are all provided so that all you have to do is stop at the grocery store and you are ready to whip up some fun. 6 beach chairs, 6 large beach towels and beach toys are provided. Large plush towels in the bathrooms, quality 450 thread count sheets for all beds, new bedspreads and extra blankets and pillows are all provided. Games like Uno, Dominoes, Jenga, Monopoly etc are kept in the master closet for your use and enjoyment. Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Soap dispensers are provided in both bathrooms. Ladies, all I bring is a small bag of clothes, makeup and a curling iron. Everything else you will need is provided for you.

Beautifully renovated, clean and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation rental. Debbie was very responsive to questions. We arrived early than expected and Debbie allowed us to check in 2 hours early. Don’t worry about packing bathroom toiletries, dish/dishwasher soap, laundry detergent,towels, beach chair/mats or beach toys. All is provided for you to use. The kitchen is stocked with anything that you need to cook. Not having a functioning ice maker was an inconvenience but we were made aware prior to arrival. A broom was left for cleaning but having access to a vacuum would have been helpful. Overall, I would definitely recommend! My children had a blast. Debbie’s accommodations provided truly made the trip amazing!

Great space convenient location awesome parking and beach access!!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great space with plenty of parking and such easy access to the beach. Why not five stars? Needed a window covering on single window in front and better darkening in the back. Also a bit better set up for hanging clothes in both master and loft (no hanging here).

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This condo was wonderful! Beach access is across the street. The beds were amazing. The towels and beach towels were soft, fluffy and BIG, The shampoo and conditioner smelled amazing and made our hair so soft. There were several laundry pods, trash bags, a couple of dish washing pods, and a bottle of dish soap. I've stayed where there are none or at the most one or two of these items so this was just another special touch. The beds were very comfortable that I meant to find out what brand cause we slept so good. There were soft throws everywhere to cozy up in. There was plenty of beach stuff - crabbing nets, sandcastle building stuff, snorkel stuff, floaters, beach chairs and umbrella and layout mats. The pool was nice and clean with loungers and tables and a place to wash off. The balcony was wonderful with loungers and chairs. Games in the closet. I am sure there is more stuff that I am forgetting, but seriously she thought of everything. Loved it all and we were so sad to leave!

This condo was amazing. The beds are super comfortable. And the owner leaves so many special touches to make you feel at home. From proving detergent, shampoo, conditioner, to having tons of fun toys for the beach along. Also, a nice selection of novels. I read 4 books on vacation. The condo is always quiet and conveniently located a few steps from.the beach and a quick trip to some of the best dining in Destin. My family and i were thoroughly pleased and hope to rent this unit again. Thank you so much for sharing your beach resort with us.

We were notified two weeks before our stay that the icemaker was broken and we would have to provide our own ice. Because of the total cost of our unit, an effort should have been made to fix it.
