Description

Aqua Waters is a lovely three-bedroom vacation home with comfortable upscale furnishings and accommodations for ten happy beachgoers. Its great Crystal Beach location in Destin is only a short distance from the white shimmering shore. The home also includes a refreshing private pool and an entertainment cabana with a wet bar and den.

An inviting front porch with outdoor furniture provides a hospitable entry indoors. Light nautically blue interior walls, rich hardwood flooring, comfortable furnishings, and an open living, dining, and kitchen area make you feel right at home. Chic coastal styled décor throughout welcomes you to your beach vacation abode. The living room includes a soft gray wraparound couch with a cream-colored accent chair facing a large wall-mounted flatscreen TV flanked by built-in shelving with decorative art. A contemporarily-styled dining area nearby has six high-backed cloth chairs with a soft gray material. They gather around a rectangular hardwood table beneath a chrome and white sconce lighting fixture. The bright open kitchen features brushed stainless steel appliances, white custom cabinetry, and everything needed to create a fun family meal. A kitchen island topped with classic veined marble has two raised bar ledges. Each bar includes four raised hardwood chairs for fun wining and dining. Glass doors lead out to a covered patio with comfortable outdoor furniture, a wall-hung flatscreen TV, and a gas grill for poolside cookouts. The porch overlooks a private pool and poolside cabana on the other side. The cozy cabana makes entertaining easy with a full-sized refrigerator-freezer, a wet bar, a queen-sized sleeper sofa, and a wall-mounted flatscreen TV.

The master bedroom includes a king-sized bed flanked by two side tables and crisp white furnishings with a dresser and a drawer cabinet. This spacious room also features a flatscreen TV for evening entertainment. A private luxurious ensuite master bath has dual marble-topped vanity sinks, a dressing table, a deep soaking tub, and a separate floor-to-ceiling walk-in shower. Another comfortable king-size bed is located in the guest bedroom with a double-wide window looking out upon the front porch. It shares a full hall bath with a bunk room that includes sleeping arrangements for five kids. A separate elegant half bath also serves as a powder room.

This fantastic Crystal Beach locale is near popular gulf front restaurants with friendly beach bars, grocery stores, and exciting shopping adventures. The captivating Destin Commons retail village features charming European-styled turrets, an old-fashioned clock tower, a classic fountain, a geyser plaza for refreshing playtime, and palm-lined pedestrian-friendly avenues. This village includes a massive Bass Pro Shops, a Belk’s department store, fine clothiers, fashion boutiques, specialty stores, shoe shops, jewelers, restaurants with bars, and an AMC multiplex movie theater. This central location is also close to all the action at Destin’s crown jewel of HarborWalk Village, along with the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard at Sandestin.

I’m 33 years old and my family has been using Ocean Reef since I was 12!
My wife and kids and I just had our first vacation together in Destin and the Aqua Waters house was everything we needed and more! Plenty of space for the 5 of us and the golf cart was super clutch! Less than a 2 min golf cart drive to the crab trap made beach trips a breeze! We’ll definitely be back!!

Great for everyone in the family
We loved this property. The pool and pool house were great for the kids. The rooms were clean, comfortable and full of storage. Everyone loved the convenience of using the included golf cart.

Great home and great location
The home is perfect for a group. We didn’t have a large group but the layout of this home is awesome. The pool, golf cart and location to the beach made this stay a great getaway. Will definitely be back.

Wonderful Stay! Great layout with private pool and pool house.
We had 8 family members in our party and the layout was perfect. Just the right amount of beds and bedrooms without someone having to sleep on a couch. House was actually better than the pictures. Grandkids loved the pool and used the pool house as their hangout place. Loved the golf cart for trips to the beach and local shopping. Any questions I had were responded to quickly. More than enough towels and well stocked kitchen with dishes, pots and pans, appliances and utensils. Would definitely return.

Great place for family beach vacation
This house was super clean and had plenty of towls for everyone to use. The hotel style little soaps and shampoos were a nice touch. The pool was a highlight for our kids for the entire trip and the golf cart was a nice added bonus for all the trips to the beach. The house felt much larger than a 3 bedroom house. Plenty of space to lounge around. Our family would definitely rent this house again.
