**Nantucket House**

We've done over $200,000 in upgrades to this house! We took off the back porch and old pool, and built a huge stunning new luxury pool with a spa! Downstairs got new flooring, new paint, new furniture, new decor, and a giant new smart TV! Also a new driveway!

Sleeps a total of 23 people so a great home for 4-5 families with kids, or up 18 adults max with no kids. If you have a larger group, we have 3 houses all right next door to each other here! (See our listings for Over the Top and A Chesapeake Cottage)

You can enjoy our brand new 18’ x 30’ private pool (one of the largest in Crystal Beach) with a large wet deck and spa tub.  It’s a gorgeous pool with custom mosaic tile and a large sunning deck and artificial turf all around for you to enjoy the Destin sunshine! The raised spa has a waterfall effect into the pool.  The pool and spa can be heated (to 85 degrees) for an additional fee.

ALSO, just completed in March 2019, we updated the kitchen and the 1st floor King Master! Enjoy plenty of seating at the new dining table and bar for the whole family! There's plenty of room! 

“Nantucket House” easily accommodates 23 people with 6 BEDROOMS, including 4 KING Masters, a Triple Queen Bedroom (3 queen beds), and a 3rd floor Bunk Room with 2 sets full-over-full beds (yes, that’s 4 full-size beds).  It also has 6 FULL BATHROOMS. And an added extra bonus for your large group, we have installed TWO sets of full-size washers & dryers. There is even a 4-PASSENGER GOLF CART to make beach access or just getting around Crystal Beach even easier!

Right ACROSS from the BEACH on Scenic 98, this incredibly nostalgic, Nantucket-style is home updated decor, plantation shutters, vaulted ceilings, and a completely remodeled 3rd floor with OCEAN VIEWS.  Recent renovations have added modern conveniences for your comfort while preserving the unique retro-charm of this large, New England-style beach home.

There is also plenty of room for everyone to gather in the spacious living area and the open, custom kitchen and dining area has everything you’ll need to prepare and enjoy meals for your large group.   And when you’re ready for the beach – it’s just across the street!

We keep our home clean and well-updated and pay attention to amenities you expect, such as the high-speed internet (free wifi), nice flat-screen TVs, high-definition cable, high-quality linens, hair dryers in each bathroom, and more.  We also provide items our smaller guests may need like a high chair and pack-n-play.
Inside this exceptional home, you’ll find a bright and inviting living area with gleaming tile floors, a brick fireplace, and beautiful tongue and groove wood details on the walls and ceilings.  The leather sectional, chaise and side chair are all new, and you’ll appreciate the big HDTV with DVD player. Double French doors open onto a large deck with seating and a natural gas grill for great meals outdoors.   

The wide open spaces continue in the beautifully updated kitchen, with new high-end stainless steel appliances, including an extra-large, side-by-side refrigerator. In this well-appointed kitchen, you’ll find all the dishes, pans and utensils you may need, a Keurig D-Cup coffee maker, as well as a regular drip coffee maker, and even a few spices, to get you started.   There’s room for 12 at the custom banquette with new table and chairs, and more dining space and seating at the long kitchen counter.  We want you to feel at home, and the large, open layout is a perfect gathering spot for your family or friends.
