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!

Beach Access - I enjoyed the space that was available at the property. They are building housing next door, and the bathroom window is open so I would recommend a window covering. Also, they beach access isn't totally clear. Access to the beach is not clear so it would be helpful to know we would be asked to find another location which wasn't far from the house but also not the closest access to the house. Overall very good visit.

Great family vacation - Our family was one of three families with children from ages 3-11 that stayed together for five nights at Crystal Beach. This is the second year that we've stayed in this house and we lived it both times. The proximity to the beach, the pool in the backyard and the size of the house were perfect for us. We had a few small issues with the house and the property management company responded in a timely fashion to all issues.

Excellent proximity to the beach! - We had 4 families in our group staying at Stella di Mare (7 adults and 9 kids ranging from 4 to 16. The layout was absolutely perfect. Each couple had their own room with king size beds & their own private bathroom (2 on ground floor & 2 on the 2nd floor). The 3rd floor had an additional bathroom & a massive bunk room with 8 twin beds. There were two kitchens (one on the ground floor- where everything was mainly stocked & one on the second floor). The extra oven & coffee pot on the second floor made cooking for a large group much easier. Having two laundy areas was extremely handy too, also located on the ground & 2nd floor. Proximity to the beach could not have been better. It is an easy walk even with small children. We loved having a pool on site. It is smaller, but all 9 kids were in at the same time & didn't seem to mind. There is a covered deck with plenty of chairs, which I appreciated. The deck itself does need work. Several of our kiddos ended up with splinters, so we had to really watch the smaller kids, making sure they put their shoes on before coming on the deck. One thing that was a little rough... There is construction going on next door. They start pretty early & we actually choose to leave during the day a few times because of the noise. The workers did finish up the day fairly decent...usually around 4pm-ish. I know that is out of the control of the management team, but it is something to keep in mind if staying at this location anytime soon. I can not brag enough about the property managers at RealJoy. We had several issues during our stay and they were amazing! From the big things like the t.v. cable & internet line being cut from the construction next door to simply needing a broom they were on top of it. This company was super responsive with the small things as much as they were with the big things! Overall we had a great stay & even though I wouldn't stay in this exact location in the near future because of the construction, I would absolutely stay in another RealJoy managed property. They were amazing!

- Good place.

The Perfect House - House was unbelievable. Fit our family of 12 perfectly. Could not ask for a better rental. Beach access was great, but, and not the fault of the home owners, was a little hard to deal with. Getting to the beach was easy. But, I guess the umbrella rental owners are on the city council or county commission. They have exclusive rights for umbrellas. So the only access for those accessing the public section, who want to use their own umbrellas, is a 40 foot swath of beach from boardwalk to water. Makes for a very crowded beach experience. But we did get to know some great people. Oh, if only I could get this house with a little room to spread out on the beach.

Nice House! - This house was perfect for what we were looking for. We traveled with four couples and it was great to have a location so close to the beach. We also appreciated having bathrooms attached to each of the large bedrooms. Great place to spend a relaxing weekend!

Amazing Home - This home is perfect for a large family or 2 families. Well furnished home with everything you could possibly need. Completely updated. Beautiful great location to the beach. We would definitely rent this home again. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week. Thanks again Tammy.

Amazing - This house exceeded expectations and was perfect for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Highly recommend!

Fantastic Home! - Stella di Mare was the perfect home for our family. It is a short walk to beach. The pool was wonderful for the kids to play as we grilled. The owner was so easy to reach for questions and restaurant recommendations. We will definitely be back. I have saved this home on Facebook for easy reference.

Beautiful and Updated - The house was perfect! It was beautiful and updated! All of our guests were impressed and loved it.

The Joining of Two in Marriage (and all the grown kids!) - We just got married and brought our "Brady Bunch" kids together for the Thanksgiving weekend to celebrate our new big ole' family. Stella di mare was absolutely wonderful! The perfect home for a large crew. Plenty of room to feel completely comfortable. Two lounging areas - we used one for the gamers and one for college football. We put singles on the 3rd floor, families w/ little ones on the 2nd and the grown folk on the main floor. It was perfect. Plenty of room to all be together and the ability to also find your own space. We cooked, we took over the dining table w/ card games, ALL the decks, the beach, we enjoyed every part of this home w/ no complaints. It sits in a beautiful more residential area of Destin but close to everything possibly needed. We even went bowling. The owners were quick to answer any questions and readily available and the property managers were on it! I highly recommend this home and I believe that our amazing long weekend was in part due to the home being so comfortable and so cozy. Even for 18!! We're coming back!

Great house for families traveling together! - The house is beautifully decorated and in a great location for walking to the beach! The house was large enough to accommodate 18 people in our family. The owner is very responsive has tried to think of everything you might need for your vacation. The house has 2 kitchens and each is stocked with the kitchen essentials. There are also a wagon, beach chairs, and umbrellas for your use. The backyard and pool were smaller than expected, but the house made up for the smaller outdoor area. Our family would definitely stay here again!

Very nice, comfortable, and clean. Great location. - Everything was great except downstairs fridge was broke. They did bring Dry Ice to alleviate the problem after a technician was sent out and could not fix the fridge. All in all a great place. Would definitely go back.
