Quieter side of Destin
Great property. Location was excellent. Very easy to get to, easy access to beach, less traffic and congestion in the area, and lots of places to walk dogs. House was very nice and well laid out. Would stay here again.

FAQs

We welcome all of your questions! Most property-specific details can be answered in the AMENITIES tab, for example, "Is beach service included?", "Is there a community pool?" and "How far is the beach?". Additional answers may be found in our Rental Policies.

Still have unanswered questions? We invite you to ask below. Our vacation specialists look forward to providing you with a detailed response to help you find the best place by the beach!

Are golf carts allowed in this neighborhood?
Phil E - Posted: 12/31/2021

Answer:

Although a great way to get to the beach, the Crystal Shores HOA does not permit golf carts within this neighborhood.

Can the private pool be heated?
Laura S - Posted: 02/06/2022

Answer:

The pool at Beachy Keen does not have the ability to be heated. You can, however, enjoy using the seasonally heated community pool depending on the time of year you visit.

Is there parking near the beach access?
Teri E - Posted: 03/28/2022

Answer:

Beachy Keen is within walking distance to two public beach access points on Scenic 98. The closest is located near Crystal Beach Dr, which does not have parking. The other public beach is across from Hutchinson St and includes parking, restrooms, and a seasonal lifeguard on duty. Beach parking is also available at the Crab Trap to the east, just a short car ride away.

Is the grassy area fully fenced?
Tricia J - Posted: 10/12/2022

Answer:

Beachy Keen offers a partially fenced-in yard beautifully landscaped with lush tropical flora.

Are the 3 story home and guest house are both included?
Miguel M - Posted: 01/13/2023

Answer:

Yes - Beachy Keen includes both a three-story main house and guest house with the rental. This is a great option multiple friends or family staying in one location!

Is a chair/umbrella set up on beach included with rental?
Carrie D - Posted: 01/21/2024

Answer:

Beach chairs and umbrellas are not provided complimentary, but are most certainly available for rent. Once you have secured your reservation, we will provide you with the beach services contact information. You can reserve chairs and umbrellas over the phone, or directly on the sand. See you soon!
