Our guests have been coming down on vacation to our beautiful white sand beaches in Destin and along the Emerald Coast for well over three decades. Generations of family members have made this a memorable annual tradition, and many try to get here as often as they can. The sugary sands and jewel toned waters of the gulf always embrace everyone with a warm welcome to their “beach” home away from home! Upon arrival, you never want to leave the spot on the beach, so it’s nice to know you don’t have to if you one of the fortunate guests at one of our distinctive homes that sit beside the shimmering shore. Another pleasure is the experience of taking time out of your usual rushed schedule at home to sit down together for a fun family feast. Besides the great food, you are able to enjoy mutual merriment with friends, blessed bonding time with loved ones and the creation of happy memories. The following five beach homes feature outstanding views of the superb seascape right from the dining table. The salty surf and glittering gulf views may inspire you to relish your own version of a fun “Surf n Turf” culinary creation.
Crystal Cabana is a handsome Mediterranean styled beachfront beauty that has five spacious bedrooms and the ability to accommodate up to 12 fortunate guests. It is part of the prestigious Destiny enclave which features a large lovely lagoon-shaped pool, a bubbling hot tub, tennis courts, a fitness facility, and clubhouse. The elegant dining alcove with two walls of windows provides gorgeous gulf dining views from six carved sunburst chairs around a scrolled hardwood table that sit beneath a regal shaded vintage chandelier. A granite-topped open bar beside the state of the art kitchen and a cocktail table with four richly woven straw chairs nearby share the enchanting views.
