I travel for a living and must admit, I have become a bit of a property snob. My expectations are infrequently met and rarely exceeded. This property exceeded any possible expectations I could have had. Perfect in every way. The actual property was in showroom condition, the location was amazing, and the views off the decks could not be matched. My only complaint was that I only had 4 days to spend at this lovely home. I hope I get the opportunity to return and stay much longer!

Thank you Kelly. Please come back for a week!

Wonderful for our Family Celebration!

November 18, 2013

Our family celebrated my 60th birthday in this beautiful location. We had such easy access to the beach on the lower level, and were spoiled with the generous size of the deck with comfortable chaises. We loved having two balconies on the 2nd and 3rd levels from which to enjoy the view! The western view is unobstructed and breathtaking, and the easter view is also excellent. There are no tall high rise condos close by, which we appreciated. The kitchen is very well stocked including all the small appliances we needed. Linda couldn't have been more responsive and helpful - it was as close to a perfect week as one can have! I definitely want to come back and enjoy more beach time at this wonderful property!

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Tina, Thank you and I hope you and your family will return to celebrate other birthdays and important occasions. Our beach is truly beautiful and breathtaking!

What a fabulous home

June 26, 2013

We took our family of 8 for a week. This property was everything we expected , The home is tastefully decorated and the view was amazing! You walk out on the deck and the ocean is at your feet. You have a private beach and each morning they provide you with an umbrella and chairs. If you planning a trip to Destin we would recommend you book with Linda!!!

Great rental home!

December 20, 2012

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful rental property. Watched the dolphins play in the ocean off our balcony having a morning cup of coffee - doesn't get any better! Celebrated Thanksgiving at the condo using the well-equiped kitchen - home away from home! Would definately rent this property again!

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Thank you for celebrating Thanksgiving at my town home. Yes, my guests really like the privacy, space, and extensive views of our beautiful white sand beach from the large first floor deck and also the decks on the second and third floor decks. I look forward to your return visit!





September 18, 2012

This Was The Second Time That We Have Visited This Property. Like The First Time, It Was Fantastic. Four Of The Mornings That We Were Sitting On The Second Floor Deck, We Were Able To See Dolphins Swimming By. The Sun Rise And Sun Set Were Absolutely Beautiful. All The Comforts Of Home And More. This Is The Perfect Place To Bring The Family Or Friends For A Great Vacation Or A Short Time Getaway. We Plan On Returning Again Next Year Also. Thank You Linda.

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Gary, I appreciate you being a return guest. Thank you! Yes, this is a great place to view the beach from 3 separate stories and decks. You can't beat being right on our beautiful beach and sugar white sand.

Another great vacation here!

June 28, 2012

This is the 2nd year we have stayed in this townhome. You can't beat the location. No one above or below you...walk out your door directly on to the beach...semi-private pool...full kitchen...full washer/dryer. The owner is responsive and cares about the quality of your stay and you can tell she really cares about the quality of the home. It is well-maintained and clean. Nothing obstructing your view of the ocean. We plan to book this condo again next year as well.

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

And I Iove having you as a return guest. Thank you!

Beautiful Place, Beach, Location. you get my drift

March 14, 2012

This was the second year I stayed at this townhome. It is a beautiful place located on a great part of the beach. It is within walking distance of the Destin Commons Mall and a short drive to everything else in Destin. The beach is magnificent. The home is directly on the beach with with a large deck overlooking it. There are two balconies on the upper level overlooking the Gulf. The place has plenty of room and is very clean and well decorated. The owner is a pleasure to deal with. She really cares about her guests stay. I had no issues with anything and my security deposit was promptly returned after my stay. A great place for just about anyone.

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Thanks Rick, you are one of my many return guests and I look forward to seeing you next year. Crystal Beach is Destin's most private and desirable beach area and I take pleasure in working with my guests to see they have the perfect vacation the first time and every time.

My family has been going to the Gulf Coast for 12 years. With the Oil Spill, we took a chance and went across Florida to the Atlantic coast. It was beautiful beyond description. The condo was luxurious with multiple ocean front views - the patio is extra large, almost like another room. Rooms were plenty big - but the living area can only be described as spacious. Had a problem with a bed, but it was handled promptly as was rusted "clicker" to gated entry. Spent a week in "heaven" - home today - miss it already!
