Anchor Pointe is a gracious five-bedroom beach view vacation home that may happily "harbor" 14 fortunate guests in the highly sought after residential community of Crystal Shores. This premier Destin location on Scenic 98 places you a short stroll away from convenient beach access and close to popular gulf front restaurants with friendly beach bars.
Completed in crisp white and light blue trim, as soon as you arrive at this lovely home you are captivated by its warm charm and nautical appeal. A columned wraparound veranda spans across the back with a separate Guest House beside it. This veranda also overlooks a private pool that can be seasonally heated. A grill on the sundeck and table with chairs can provide a poolside dining experience. Another furnished veranda out back overlooks a lush tropical setting out towards the Gulf of Mexico, where you may enjoy the tranquil breezes. The main open living area easily incorporates the dining, kitchen, and family space. Comfortable furnishings include a tan couch with a built-in ottoman centered upon a wall-mounted TV flanked by handsome built-in shelving. Wooden benches and two straw chairs sit around a country dining table, and six raised bar chairs beside the kitchen allow everyone plenty of space to enjoy a fun family feast.
The Guest Bedrooms in the main house include king-sized beds in two of them with en suite luxury baths. A room for the kids contains two twin beds along with two twin trundles and access to another bath. The spacious Master Suite on the top floor has a Wet Bar, an en suite luxury bath, and a king-sized bed that faces a private balcony with palm tree topped views of the gorgeous Gulf.
The Guest House has a comfortably furnished living/dining area with a kitchenette, a bedroom with a king-sized bed, a bunk room, and a full hall bath. A Game Room downstairs off the pool has a Ping Pong and Foosball Tables as well as a long couch facing a wall-mounted TV for entertainment.
This excellent location is very close to grocery stores along with retail specialty stores at Destin Commons, Paradise Key Shopping Center, and the Shops at Paradise Isle. There are also an abundant array of nationally known restaurants and bars with over two dozen choices.
Crystal Beach also has three locally-owned restaurants right on Scenic Gulf, and two of them are within easy walking distance. They are 790 on the Gulf that features Cajun-inspired dishes served with "southern Louisiana hospitality" and Camille's which is known for having great Italian food, pizzas and even sushi. The Beach Walk Cafe is also nearby, which serves up award-winning gourmet seafood and landlubber entrees with special sauces that are heavenly. This place is quite beguiling since it overlooks the Gulf and has panoramic views of dazzling sunsets across beach dunes. This locale is also centered between Destin and Miramar Beach, placing you minutes away from bustling activities along with abundant amusements at both.

We love ocean reef and we’ll be back! Your customer service is amazing. Thank you for taking such good care of our family. Anchor pointe is a beautiful home in a dreamy location. We especially love the small touches the ocean ocean reef left throughout the house. The beach bag that was left in the main house and the guest house that my daughters family and my family both used all week because we forgot to pack one came in handy! We love the travel size shampoo and soaps left in the bathroom and the Coozies(?) that did not go to waste!
