The City of Destin has recently adopted very strict parking regulations. You may park up to 3 vehicles at this home, depending on size. You cannot park on the grass, over the sidewalk, on the street or in the right-of-way. Violations could result in fines or towing without notice. Be sure to stay on the driveway, as there are sprinkler heads next to the driveway too. If you have a large truck, van or SUV, there may not be enough space to legally park 3 vehicles at this home.
A PERFECT BEACH LOCATION
The home is about a block from the beach; you can choose between two access points: Shirah Street or the larger ‘Shore at Crystal Beach Park’ with a pavilion and bathrooms. At the house, you’ll find a cart with beach chairs and an umbrella, so you can roll your gear to the beach with ease. Crystal Beach is the gold standard of Destin...no high-rise condominiums. It’s mostly residential, which contributes to the quietness of the neighborhood – you can just stroll down the sidewalk to the beach, or walk to a few nearby restaurants or shops.
Restaurants, activities and entertainment are also close-by. Destin Commons, a beautiful upscale shopping and entertainment center, is less than a half-mile away. It features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Bass Pro Shop, World of Beer, Panera Bread, Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl & Grill, AMC Theater with IMAX and much more. Local favorite, Camille’s, is an easy walk around the corner and The Crab Trap is about a mile east. You can bicycle, scooter, Jet ski and go para-sailing all within walking distance. The Silver Sands Outlet mall is not far for those who enjoy “retail therapy”!
We are pet friendly and welcome your dogs in our home. Pre-approval and a $200 + tax pet fee applies.

The members of the team are professional and friendly; there to help whenever you need them. The donuts from the Donut Hole that were waiting for us upon our arrival were a personal touch and hit the spot after traveling! Yum!
This vacation was one of the best trips we have taken. The colors and furnishings in the house were inviting and comfortable. The pool was just the thing needed after a day at the beach. We enjoyed making our meals in the kitchen...the open floor plan kept us all together. The layout of the house accommodated all of us easily. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and balcony in the evening to unwind. Destin is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen!! Thank you Sugar Palm for making it special!

The donuts and personalized postcard, along with a visit from Jeff upon arrival, were all nice touches.
We have been staying in Crystal Beach for 8 years, and this is a very nice property that worked well for us. We have stayed in this property for two years and loved the new beachy paint in the living area and kitchen and the enlarged patio area. The beach cart with chairs and an extra-large umbrella was a welcome surprise.
