Villages of Crystal Beach is an exclusive, gated community only a few blocks from the beautiful blue waters and white sandy beaches of Destin. You can make the walk on foot or hop on the free seasonal trolley service (Memorial Day through Labor Day): they will even pick you up at the house and drop you off right at the beach! The pool area at Villages of Crystal Beach is a vacation must! The lagoon style zero entry pool is 30,000 square feet of gorgeous, sparkling clear water. There is a spa, tropical landscaping, and plenty of seating areas. It also has surround sound, a flat screen TV, and a grilling area to help you relax and unwind.

Please note that there are parking restrictions within the Villages of Crystal Beach.  There are two parking spaces available in the driveway of the home with an overflow lot for one additional vehicle. Trailers, RV's, boats, golf carts, and motorcycles are not allowed within the community gates; alternate parking arrangements will need to be made for these items. 

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 watersports!

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!

"Nice Property - Nice clean vacation home. Nice location, no hot water in the showers. Check out was at 10:00am but housekeeping was there to clean at 9:30am"

"Great time - House was awesome , we loved the lay out , loved that each floor had a full bathroom. House Temperature was perfect , nice and fresh. Had an issue with locking the front door but figured it out , no big deal . House is Directly across from the gate to the pool so that was great . Walking distance to so many places . One thing that was a bummer , the pool closes nightly at 10pm , wished it was open later. Overall we loved it , we will return . Thank you!"

"It was a wonderful experience - The house was all of that and more will definitely want to rent this property again"

"Great place to reconnect. - Our 2 families loved the location of the property. Being a short walk to the beach was easy enough, even with 7 kids in tow between us. My daughter loved being directly across from the pool and hearing the poolside waterfall at night. The neighborhood itself was quite loud for a family location after midnight but that’s at no fault of the property and the luck of the draw for a rental. I might choose someplace more secluded in the future to avoid this."
