Salt Water Taffy II is a striking six bedroom vacation home that is well-positioned in the sought after community of Crystal Shores in Destin. With three of the six bedrooms being full suites, and since there are multiple bunks available, up to eighteen guests may be easily accommodated. This gracious three-story property backs up to Scenic Gulf Drive and is just a one-minute walk away from the beautiful beach. This home exudes charm with a white picket fence, lush palm accented landscaping, breezy balconies, a creamy white exterior and a nautically blue colored roof. The home has its own private swimming pool with a nice sun deck to soak up the rays before taking a plunge and plenty of chairs for lounging. A lagoon shaped community pool is less than three minutes away so you have multiple options for watery refreshment.
Back at Salt Water Taffy II there are several porches and balconies where you may enjoy sipping on your favorite tropical drink as well as the delightful gulf breezes. The interiors are graciously hospitable with comfortable furnishings that are upscale and create an ambiance of laid-back elegance. Vibrant original oil paintings and tropical prints adorn the wall while silk plants provide a rich Floridian flair. The first floor encompasses the living, dining and kitchen areas in an expansive open Great Room. The room is so large that there are two separate sitting areas with four couches, some of which double as queen sized sleeper sofas. High ceilings have multiple crown moldings and subtle formal archways lead from one area to another. A flat screen TV with a DVD player sits above a glassed in fireplace (inoperable) in between two cabinets containing decorative art. The granite topped bar nearby has raised chairs that face the open Gourmet Kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances. This setting inspires entertainment and the desire to create a fun family feast. A formal dining table has six wooden chairs that sit beneath a domed chandelier. One of the charming guest bedrooms is also on the first floor with a queen sized bed and access to a full bathroom.
Four additional spacious bedrooms are on the second floor, which are individually decorated in their own color scheme that includes rainbow colors of lavender, green, yellow, green and light tangerine. Two of these are Master Suites with elegant king sized beds, private bathrooms and have access to a breezy balcony. One Guest Room is a perfect kid’s room with four colorful twin sized beds while another has a queen-sized bed and is fit for a princess.
The entire third floor encompasses the main Master Bedroom Suite with a regal king sized bed, a beautiful bathroom and its own romantic balcony. All of the bedrooms have TVs for evening entertainment.
