Area Attractions: 

There are wonderful shops and restaurants close by and great attractions such as golf courses, Big Kahuna's Water and Adventure Park, boating, fishing, and water-sports!

Close by is Destin Commons, a beautifully landscaped, pedestrian-friendly area and a great family venue where children will love to play in the interactive water fountains. Also, for the younger guests, a nautically/pirate themed outdoor playground features a 1,750 square foot soft play area with various creatures from the sea, slides, and a treasure chest!  Destin Commons also has a mini-train for the kids. Destin Commons features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Godiva Chocolates, AMC Movie Theaters and Bass Pro Shop.

If you are near Miramar Beach, the snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Dolphin Reef, deployed in 2017.  Located just 685 feet straight out from the Miramar Regional Public Beach access (by Pompano Joe's), it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Dolphin Reef is at a depth of 12-20 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

A Wave Away - We love the community at Villages of Crystal Beach.

Loved it!!! - The house is large enough for my family of 11. Only a short walk from Crystals Beach (15 minutes or so) or take advantage of the shuttle service and you’re there in no time . Kitchen is well stocked and the kids loved the community pool. All in all a great property!!

- Really good place! It was clean and had everything we needed. If you do have questions, they were always on the line ready to help. Honestly one of the best places I've stayed at so far for airbnbs.

Great week for 3 families! - We had a group of 14 and had a ton of room! The house is in a good location. We loved the pool and shuttle service to the beach, but wished it went later than 4:30. We were also surprised the house didn’t have an outside hose to prevent tracking sand inside.

Joint Family Vacation - We rented this house with some friends and we had family come in from Louisiana. The kids had the entire 3rd floor to themselves. It was a dream! The beach pickup/drop off was easy to arrange and the beaches are gorgeous!

Nice house - The property was just as advertised. Nice, clean, close to the beach and pool.

- We stayed here a week and loved every minute of it.
They forgot to send the code to the door but I called and they solved it very quickly.
This place is in the middle of Destin and close to everything.
The only downside is almost every beach near here is private.
We still made it work and had a great stay.
Would recommend to anyone.
Also would recommend getting a pontoon and going to crab island.
We have 4 kids and they had just as much fun as all of the adults.
Thanks again.
