This lovely Crystal Beach vacation home can accommodate a dozen fortunate beachgoers and is only two blocks away from the sugary shoreline. It features beautiful, nautically colored exteriors with pale blue walls trimmed in white. The home’s charming look includes two columned porches with white railings spanning its front on the lower and upper levels. A picket fence frames the nicely landscaped yard. The main house is three stories tall, with a third-story bedroom providing panoramic views of the sensational scenery.
Glass doors from the front porch of Mario Cottage lead into the open living, dining, and kitchen areas. Comfortable cottage-style furnishings and beach-washed hardwood flooring provide a welcoming coastal look. Decorative art throughout includes sea life prints and beach-inspired artwork. Multiple windows and glass doors offer the open living area a bright and sunny look. A latte-toned sectional faces a large cocktail table and a flatscreen TV for entertainment. Nearby, a dining area has six round-backed decorative cottage-style chairs around a rustic rectangular hardwood table. The adjoining open kitchen has four wooden square stools facing a finely mottled malt-colored granite bar to enjoy drinks and appetizers. Brushed stainless steel appliances and white cabinetry provide everything needed to create a fun family feast. A guest bedroom on this floor has regally styled furnishings with a queen-sized bed beside a decorative yellow fenced wall adorned with flowers. This bedroom has access to a full hall bath that serves as a convenient powder room.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a twin daybed and trundle, a private balcony, and a private ensuite bath with a tub shower combination. An additional guest bedroom on this floor also features a king-sized bed, twin bunks, and has access to a private balcony. This room utilizes a full hallway bathroom with a tub shower combination. Upstairs on the third floor, a vibrantly colored loft bedroom includes a king-sized bed with sunny treetop views from multiple windows.
Besides the nearby sugar-white Destin beach, guests are just steps away from a private lagoon-shaped swimming pool where you may enjoy refreshing fun. The spacious pool patio has plenty of tables, chairs, and a gas grill for poolside cookouts. Guests may also enjoy a friendly game of volleyball in the private sand volleyball court located right in your front yard!
