Pet Friendly, Gulf Views, 500 Ft from Gulf
|Per week||$1,200 - $2,350|
Take the advice of the Beach Boys and come on 'Down to Kokomo'! Get here fast and then take it slow; that’s where you want to go, on down to Kokomo Row!
You know you are at the beach when you drive into our little community called Crystal Beach. Colorful houses and white picket fences line the streets. Kokomo Kove is a small 2 street neighborhood just feet from the Gulf of Mexico, and both streets end with cul-de-sacs. No thru traffic so lots of privacy! As you are turning into the neighborhood, look directly across the street beachside, and you will see our dedicated beach access!
Our 3 story home is located just 500 feet from the Gulf of Mexico on a quiet cul-de-sac. As soon as you step out of the car you'll feel you are in a tropical forest. You definitely know you are at the beach when you walk into a world of color. Our home is warm and inviting but absolutely fun and bright. There are no boring rooms in this house!
The living room, kitchen and dining room are an open concept so it makes this space feel large and inviting. Guests can be sitting in the living room, cooking in the kitchen or sitting at the dining room table, and all can be included in the conversation if they want to be. If not, it's cozy enough for each room to have its own gathering space. Enjoy a 46” HDTV with WIFI, Netflix and a Blue Ray Player in the living room. The couch makes into a queen size bed when needed or can be used as a twin to sleep one person.
We have 2 bedrooms and 1 bath downstairs. Each bedroom has a queen bed and you'll love the feel of the 300-600 ct 100% cotton sheets. There's plenty of space in the closets for you to put your clothes away so you won't have to be stepping over luggage on the floor. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan for those who need a little extra breeze to sleep.
The downstairs bath has a large walk-in travertine shower and 2 sinks. There is a fully enclosed outdoor shower so when it's crunch time for getting ready, someone can step out there and knock out a quick one. Towels are right inside the back door. Just grab one on your way out!
The laundry room is equipped with a washer and dryer along with places to hang towels and swim suits when you come back from the beach.
The Master Bedroom and bath are on the 2nd floor. This very large room has a king size bed and a twin size sleeper chair great for when you need to keep a child close. The furniture is completely built in so there is an abundance of storage space. Two ceiling fans hang from a beam in the vaulted ceiling. This room has a 32” Sony HDTV.
Adjoining the Master Bedroom is a Master Bath with 2 sinks, walk-in shower, and large Jacuzzi bath. The bath sits in a bay window and has a beautiful candle chandelier for those evenings when you just want to get away from everyone, relax and enjoy a romance novel. Or on a less romantic side, throw the kids in there and let them play while they wash off the sand.
Now head on up to the 3rd floor. This spacious room can be used as a bedroom, a game room or both. The sofa sleeper makes a queen bed, the chair and half makes a twin bed, and there's a game table for just having fun and enjoying the 360 degree panoramic view of Crystal Beach. It's 50 feet up so you can see the gulf, the lake, and all the house tops from our 17 windows on this floor. There's a door for privacy and the room is stocked with games. This room also has a 26' flat screen TV.
You’ll have a hard time deciding which deck you want to spend your free time on, the front porch, the back deck or off the Master on the second floor.
The back deck is a great place to gather with family or friends to watch the sunset or have a beer with the cook while he/she is grilling dinner on the gas grill. It has a side burner in case you want to boil up some shrimp to go along with those awesome New York Strips you're going to have.
Don’t forget the fully enclosed hot/cold shower perfect for washing off the sand after a day at the beach and to use it as an extra shower when needed.
The front porch is perfect for your morning coffee. Enjoy the lush landscaping and saying hi to the walkers and bike riders as they pass by for their morning exercise. Maybe they will inspire you to do the same.
The deck off the Master has 2 chaise lounge chairs so you can sun, enjoy an afternoon nap or just sit and read.
We have a fenced backyard and are pet friendly. The cul-de-sac is a great place for the kids to roller blade, play hockey, throw a football or frisbie and ride their bikes. You can sit on the porch and watch them or keep an eye on them from the living room and kitchen.
Please email owner for additional pictures!
You will absolutely love "Down to Kokomo"!

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Destin, Florida
Chambersburg, PA USA
September 16, 2015
The house was just lovely and homey and inviting. Master bedroom very spacious and well-appointed. Two main level bedrooms were not exceptionally large but very comfortable and nice storage. The kitchen was well-stocked for everything we desired. The property is very nice. The walk takes about 5 minutes to the beach which is longer than we usually like, but it wasn't a problem. Everything was comfortable, making it seem like home.

50th Anniversary family vacation
June 24, 2014
We took our family to Destin for our 50th Anniversary and loved our home we rented. It was everything we expected and more.Believe me if Debora doesn't have it in the house you really don't need it.it was a beautiful home and located so close to everything. The grandkids loved the beach and being right next door to the pool.It was all that we expected and more. We hope to return one day and rent from Debora again' Andrea
What a lovely review! Unfortunately these comments were not about our home "Down to Kokomo". If you see this response Andrea you might try to leave your review again so the owners can know how very much you enjoyed staying in their home. Our home is in Kokomo Kove across the street from Sea Oats Motel on Scenic 98 in Crystal Beach. Hopefully that helps to get your bearings in regard to where you actually stayed.
Congratulations on your 50th which by now is 50 1/2!
We enjoyed staying in your beautiful beach home. We were very comfortable in your accommodations - you have enough of everything!
The weather was perfect and everyone had a wonderful time!
Thanks for opening your home, we made wonderful family memories.

The Rasmussen/Ediger family had a great time at Down to Kokomo Christmas 2014. Thanks for the welcoming lights when we arrived late on the 20th. We all had room to roam and the beach was beautiful, rain or shine. Hope to be back in the summer!

Thank you so much for the usage of your beautiful beach house. My family and I had a wonderful relaxing time away from home. We saw the dolphins play in the bay when we took the boat out. Awesome! The house is well equipped and we loved your outdoor shower. The dogs loved the fenced in backyard and my favorite place in the morning was the porch in the front. If we come back to Destin next time we will definitely contact you again. Good luck in your new house and hugs from all of us.
Nice place to feel right at home. Great location and wonderful owners.

"From one Texan to another" your house is absolutely fantastic and we have enjoyed every minute here. Thank you so much for the gift basket and especially the dog toy! Maggie enjoyed it the most. I will be contacting you for the paint colors...our family has decided that we would like our house painted these wonderful, bright, beachy colors. We also enjoyed the use of the outdoor shower when coming in from the beach. Mine and Dave's other favorite spot was the front porch in the mornings and evenings. Once your neighbor asked if we spent the night out there! Thank you again so much for sharing your home!
Down to Kokomo was like coming home to our own vacation home, Very very nice clean home with all the comfort of your own home. Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying a week in the Down to Kokomo home. We have stayed in several homes in Destin, we must say this was the most comfortable,cozy home we have stayed in. The house is very nicely furnished,clean and well kept. Very close to the beach, just a short walk. Nice quiet neighborhood with very little traffic!!!!

We so enjoyed the floor plan of your home. It worked so well for our sleeping 10 people. Also, the house was so well-equipped with anything we needed. Thank you!
Our family had a wonderful week at the Norton's amazing home. The house was immaculate and the owners went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay.

So glad I found you on the internet! We loved staying in your house. Everything was perfect! Even the weather co-operated except for the last day - so we just left the beach early - had an early dinner and went back to Silver Sands! Hope we can come back down next summer - will be sure to contact you if we do! Thanks again!
Beautiful home.....truly about a 2 minute walk to the beach....everything you need from kitchen gadgets, washer/dryer, outdoor shower, outdoor grill, porches....it's all here! Decorated beautifully....you'll never want to leave. Pet Friendly----out little Schnorkie loved it, too!

We had a wonderful vacation and absolutely loved your home! My son had so many great adventures at the beach...seeing a manatee, feeding gulls, chasing sand crabs at night and spying blue lizzards. Our whole family will treasure this week spent together. Thank you for all the thought and time you put into making our stay here just perfect. The high chair and the pack-n-play got lots of use!! Best of luck to you and your family.

Guest book comment:
We enjoyed our stay in your home so much. The house is beautiful and so well planned. We brought two of our grandchildren with us. They loved everything about the house. It was worth the trip just to hear them squeal and see their reaction when they saw the house. We hope to stay in your home again. Thanks for everything and we appreciate Garren stopping by.
