The Villages of Crystal Beach is an upscale exclusively gated Destin community blends Mediterranean and Old Florida inspired architecture to provide fortunate guests with an idyllic vacation experience in a lush tropical setting. The spectacular setting offers a romantic, classically casual, golden aura of carefree living. All of these gracious homes are located near a 30,000 square foot neighborhood center that features a spectacular resort styled swimming pool. It looks more like a large lovely lagoon than a pool with long curvy sides adorned with towering palm trees and tropical landscaping. An island rises out of the center of this “lagoon” and is studded with palms and stony sides. Delightful waterfalls cascade down over the rocks into the pool all around it. Another waterfall splashes over stones anchors at the other end of this tropical oasis. The expansive pool patio includes a bubbling hot tub that juts out beside the water’s edge under its own palm tree. A big poolside Tiki Bar with a Mediterranean tiled roof has multiple countertops, many bar seats, some comfortable couches, and a surround sound system for musical entertainment. Outdoor stainless steel grills with ovens are close by so guests may enjoy fun family barbeques and poolside dining. This wonderful unique Destin community has its own modern open-air trolley that can whisk guests from poolside to the beautiful beach within minutes.
Although the Villages of Crystal Beach provides a special place that seems like it is far away in another world, it is located in the center of all that Destin has to offer. Grocery stores, wine outlets, favorite gulf front restaurants on Scenic Highway 98 and multiple shopping venues are all close by. This includes the picturesque Disney-like Destin Commons retail complex which has consistently received widespread acclaim. It is anchored by a Belk’s Department Store and a Bass Pro Shops with multiple clothiers, fashion boutiques, specialty stores, eateries, bars as well as a multiplex movie theater in between. This location is also equidistant from all the action at Harborwalk Village on Destin’s marina as well as adventures to the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin in Miramar Beach. Both destinations feature an abundant array of restaurants, lively bars, specialty shops, free concerts, lots of fun festivals and seasonal fireworks.
