Area Attractions: 

Crystal Beach is a terrific residential area, yet close to restaurants and activities in Destin. Walk to close by restaurants such as the award-winning 790 Inn on the Gulf or Camille's, get your fro-yo on at U-Twirl Frozen Yogurt, or learn how to ride the waves at All-A Board Surf School.  

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!

Perfect Bachelorette house - It was perfect for 14 girls, close to the beach (which get there early) although it’s a small little area and walking distance to a bunch of spots. Walmart is a 3 min drive. Would definitely come back

Great Area - Great location to beach access, food and shopping.

- We originally booked with the blu flamingo, when we arrived from 10 hours away with my son who is a patient at stjude, we were extremely disappointed with this place, plumbing issue, dirty cloudy pool, food on tables and microwave, ceiling leaking water into furniture. after speaking with real joy and sending them pictures of the issues they moved us to a much better place with no extra cost and we were very pleased and impressed with the rental, FinsUp this place was immaculate. we were very satisfied real joy fixed the problem and quickly and our stay was exactly what we wanted it to be.

Beach Vacation - We felt right at home when we got to the house. It was clean and ready for us to use. The internet was out when we got there but they were easy to communicate with and got the Cox guy to come out as soon as possible. We didn’t need it much anyway. It was a very short walk to the beach and a short drive to other destinations!

Awesome - Enough room for all of us....close to everything we needed....nice pool Not much Not to like....tub(1st flr)...drainage problem.

Memories Made! - We enjoyed our stay! As a previous review stated the beach was “claimed” with canopy’s/lawn chairs by 8:30. We prepared ourselves for that before arriving and took simple walks up and down the water. We have younger children who don’t last long on the beach anyway. It was very close so it made it easy to walk the 5 minutes back home. We usually rent a golf cart when we go, but saved money being this close! The home was clean. Loved the bonus fridge in the laundry room. More rugs or mats through the house and smart TVs would be my only immediate suggestions. It was so nice having The Henderson Resort walking distance. We ate there there a few times and enjoyed their rooftop happy hours and live music. Thanks for the memories!

Fit our needs - As advertised

Nice location and house. - The house was nice, just a little small for our family of 11. Needs some TLC. Deep cleaning and paint. Pool was very nice as well as the surrounding lounging areas. Spent a lot of time there relaxing. Could use some larger skillets and pans for big family meals. All of us agreed this was best vacation ever!!

Easy Beach Access - Family Friendly - Great Location! The public beach access is a quick walk - easy for young kids to make the walk and close enough to go back and forth from beach to house if you forget something or need to go make lunch. Also very convenient to Walmart and other restaurants/family entertainment. House is perfect for 3 families plus kids…could do a 4th family if one couple doesn’t need a king bed, but plenty of space for as many kids as you want to squeeze.. If you want front row on the beach you need to get there by 7AM, or earlier, to reserve your spot - great job for Grandpa! We enjoyed walking to the coffee shop, roller blading through the neighborhood, and playing on the playground at the church.
