The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!' The Destin area is abundant with Restaurants, bars, shopping areas, Golf, and water sports. Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes twice to three times a year event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you'll want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why! Ocean Dreams is very convenient to all activities including shopping at both Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlet Mall. Water sports, golf, tennis, and other activities are all very close too!

“Can't wait to go back”

Reviewed 12 May 2015

I had my wedding on the private beach of Emeald Shores and had my family stay at the house afterwards. This house is amazing.... It's well decorated tons of beds! Right across from the pool!!! And a three minute walk to the beach! We couldn't have been more satisfied. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you would need. The workers at Crystal Waters were so helpful and even let us check out a few hours after we were supposed to. This was an amazing experience. AND the wedding of my dreams..... We plan on coming back here for anniversaries and we wil definitely use CRYSTAL WATERS. ALSO the pictures done so it justice. This house is spectacular. I would live in it if I could. Thanks for helping make my wedding perfect!!

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Ocean Dreams! It is special house very close to the beach and right across from the pool! We do our best to keep it nice and comfortable for all. So happy we did a good job for you!

“What a trip!!”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2014

My husband and I have not been on a vacation in 16 years. We flew from So. Californiia and met our family from Colorado at Ocean Dreams. We rented the house for 10 days and were pleasantly surprised by our experience. We were in a lovely neighborhood, close to the ocean which was gorgeous! The beach was clean, white powder sand, families, etc. It was so much nicer than the Pacific and West Coast beaches. We were even fortunate enough to swim with a sea turtle, fun little fishes and a jelly fish. Don't touch the jellies! :-) The home we rented was large enough for the 8 of us. The kitchen was fully stocked. Bathrooms were nice a large. The house was nicely decorated and very clean. They thought of everything you could think of for vacationers to be comfortable like they were at home. We will come again and encourage you to be confident in this particular rental home. We had a wonderful experience and didn't want to leave. Thank you so much to the management for creating a great vacation experience for us.

“Great vacation home”

This house is very nicely furnished and clean. The pool is right there and the beach is just 1/4 mile walk. I would recommend this house to all my family and friends.

Scenic views... a balcony on every level, private beach access, and located close to everything (Target, Wal-Mart, outlet center). From the moment we entered the gated access community, we knew we were going to have a blast. Bill greeted us with a smile and he was so nice. The home looks so much better than the pictures! The towels in all of the bathrooms were folded creatively like seashells, and everything was so fresh and crisp. There are TVs, dvd players, and a bathroom on every floor. Because the home is three floors, there is also a refrigerator, microwave, and sink at the top of the stairs. Incredible!!! They thought of everything! It rained all day Saturday, but we were able to grill out in the back yard and watch movies. It was perfect quality, family time. My mom and mother in law were so impressed with the place. They said, "It's so cozy and peaceful, we feel like we are staying at a friend's home while they are away." I was apprehensive about renting the beach home, but it was far more that we had imagined. The beach was so beautiful and literally within walking distance. The private entrance allowed us to go at our leisure without having to get in our car to get there. Our trip to Destin was truly memorable. We loved it so much we are already planning our next visit!!! I don't know who Bill uses for maintenance of this property but they do a wonderful job. I would recommend this home and any other property managed by Bill to anyone. You will NOT be disappointed.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review of Ocean Dreams! So happy you had a great time in our little piece of paradise and enjoyed our home! We were so happy you came and hope to see you again soon! Ocean Dreams sits in the gated neighborhood of Emerald Shores very close to the private beach access! It has nice views of the pool too! We do our best to keep our rentals in top shape for our guests. Thank you for noticing!

Still in my dreams!
Date of Stay August 17, 2013
I never do this, but I couldn't help but give this place 5 stars! Between being able to toss a rock in the pool and just a short walk to the beach and restaurants, this place is great. The house is outfitted with TV's in every room and slept all of us comfortably. Hope to go back soon!

My Response
So happy you enjoyed your stay at Ocean Dreams! The house is quite nice and the location cannot be beat! It sits by the bigger of 2 pools and has great pool views! The house is well furnished and can sleep up to 14 people with at least 4 kids on the bunks! The neighborhood amenities include 2 pools, a tennis court, basketball goal, and a private beach cabana right on the beach with picnic tables, showers, restrooms, storage for bikes & wagons, and a short order cafe during Peak Rental Seasons!

Beautiful property

My family stayed here in October 2010. The house was clean and cozy, and the kitchen was fully equipped. The property is right across the street from the pool. The beach was a short 8 minute walk from the house, but not a big deal. I would stay here again and recommend this property.

A must stay!

The place was great. Clean as can be and was furnished nicely. While the beach isn't right across the street, this house makes the walk worth it (very short, just a couple minutes). The pool right outside the front door is always an option too.

We had a wonderful experience at Ocean Dreams. The house was exactly as described. It slept 12 people very comfortly, was fully stocked with everything we needed. The pool was so convenient and the beach is a short walk. Would highly recommend for family get together.

This is our 4th time to rent Ocean Dreams. It's hard to beat in Destin. Convenient location, always clean, everything is in working order. Pool and beach are great. After all these visits, it feels like home.

Joyce J from Gallatin, TN recommends this vacation rental
Ocean Dreams was the perfect home for our family. We could spend time and have meals together, then go to the pool,the decks or our bedrooms for some "alone" time. The house was well supplied. The only thing I felt we needed was a step stool in the kitchen to reach the shelves that were too high for those of us who are shorter.

Manager Responded on 8/9/2016

So glad you all enjoyed Ocean Dreams. It is a nice home with great pool views and so close to the beach! Will mention the step stool when the owners come down next month!
