Fall Break is Getting Close!



We are just days away from the start of Fall! This is such a fantastic time of year here in Destin....The crowds are gone.  The mornings are a little cooler.  The sunsets are absolutely vibrant.

October is not only my favorite month, but also a popular time for family trips to the beach, since most schools have their fall break.  Why not gather the family together and head to Destin! We still have a few homes available.  Check these out...

Admirals Club ~ This lovely 4 bedroom, 3 bath home includes an attached in-law suite, perfect for extended family or friends.  Pet friendly with additional fee! Steps to the pool. Just a short walk to the private beach.  Emerald Shores community.


Caribe ~ Also located in the gated community of Emerald Shores. This 4 bedroom, 3 bath home comfortably sleeps 12 people. Plenty of sitting areas on the balconies. Very close to the pool. Short walk to the private beach. Tennis courts. Hint: if there are several families traveling together and you need two homes, Caribe and Admirals Club are next to each other!


Lonni's Gem ~ This spacious home offers 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms! Yes, there's an extra full bath on the first floor. It has been recently remodeled with new furniture, granite, cabinets, appliances, and more! Emerald Shores community.  Beach is only 1/4 mile away. Two community pools. 
                                                                       

Martinique ~ A popular feature of this 4 bedroom, 3 bath home is two king beds! Everyone loves a king. Each bedroom has access to a balcony. Pet friendly, with additional fee. Emerald Shores community.  5 minute walk to the beach!

Thank you to the Helfers Family for this nice review of their stay at Aloha Cottage:

"1st time staying in this house. Loved the space and pool. We stayed in the serenity house last time and they were both as equally excellent. House was clean and had everything we needed....And we will be booking again. Nice easy walk to the beach and surf shop around the corner. We love Crystal Waters Vacation rentals and the area." ~Cody

This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home is located on Windancer Lane, just a short walk to the beach. Aloha Cottage offers it's own private pool and fenced yard.  Seasonal beach service for two is also included!

To reserve this home for your next vacation, give us a call at 850-654-4659 or book online:

Summer is Winding Down



As summer begins to wind down, we are gearing up for a fun fall season here at Crystal Waters Vacations.  Kids are getting ready to go back to school. Moms are shopping for school clothes and supplies.  There's even been sightings of Halloween and fall decor in the stores. (Can you believe it?  Where did the summer go?)

We are actually heading into my personal favorite time of the year!  Two words. LESS TRAFFIC.  Summer at the beach is notoriously associated with traffic, especially during this road construction. But we will begin to see less cars on the road over the next couple weeks.   (Hopefully by next summer the construction will be complete.) 

The evenings will start to cool down, which makes it the perfect time to enjoy those walks on the beach.  We'll also see less crowded beaches! And shorter wait times at the restaurants.  

Best of all, the rates for vacation rentals will begin to drop! So if you haven't already considered booking a fall trip to Destin, this is the time to plan it!  We can help! 

Check our website at www.crystalwatersvacations.com to choose your favorite house or condo!  Are you looking for gulf front?  Pet friendly?  1, 2 or 3 bedroom condo?  3, 4 or 5 bedroom house? House with separate in law suite?  We have it!   There's something for every one.  

Hope to see you at the beach this fall!

It's Not Too Late To Book Your Summer Vacation






Summer is officially half over.  Can you believe it?  July 4th has passed.  Moms are shopping for school clothes for the kids. The stores have fall decor out. And people are already talking about Christmas.  Where did the time go?

On a positive note, we still have quite a few weeks of summertime weather ahead of us.  If you haven't booked your beach trip, it's not too late! We still have availability for July and August at several properties.  September is pretty wide open. And October is still warm and the BEST month to visit! 

Take a look at our website to pick out your beach home or condo >>
