Crystal Mansion: Large, 7 Bedroom, 6 Bath home, Sleeps up to 24, close to beach!
About Jeff Marken
We know 'by owner' vacation rentals better than anyone, having been part of VRBO since its earliest days. These are high-end, very well maintained homes, not "just rentals". We live in Destin and greet all our guests, so we have to be proud of these homes.
Jeff Marken purchased this House in 2012
Why Jeff Marken chose Crystal Beach
All of Destin's beaches are just amazing, but the Crystal Beach community is lower-density than other areas in Destin - no high-rise condos. It feels more like a quaint neighborhood with its white picket fences and sidewalks rather than a loud, busy resort area.
What makes this House unique
Two-story carriage house, two master suites, huge kitchen, high level of finish, larger than average private pool for Crystal Beach, almost right on the beach.
Pool / Spa
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Great place for a family vacation!
Property was clean and neat.
Just a short walk to the beach.
Grocery stores and restaurants nearby. Management was very helpful.
Thanks so much for your kind words about our home! We're glad you enjoyed your stay.
Hope to see you again soon!
Great location and room for everyone
Location is A++ Had a few minor issues but rental agent was very accommodating and took every step to make things right. Beds were comfy and kitchen well stocked. Would recommend bringing your own beach chairs if you have more than 6 people. Would stay here again.
Thanks for your feedback Tara! We hope you do stay here again, and we'll look forward to it!
Great place for a large group
My large family just rented this property and it was perfect - close to the beach, big, updated rooms, steps from the beach, pool - EVERYTHING! The management company was great too. Highly recommend!
Thanks for your kind words, Amity! It was our pleasure to take excellent care of your family during your stay. And great news - this house just got a golf cart so there will be even more to look forward to the next time you stay! We'll look forward to it.
Wonderful home with room for everyone
We had a group of 13 which included two families and the grandma! Everyone had a comfortable room and there were plenty of bathrooms for the whole crew! The kitchen was roomy and provided ample space for 2-3 people to comfortably cook together without feeling cramped. There was plenty of seating at the table and bar so that our entire group could share meals together. The outdoor space was nice and had several different sitting areas that provided for group or private gatherings. The walk to the beach was short and the provided wagon and beach chairs was a nice treat. The washer and dryer provided opportunity to wash clothes and beach towels so that there was little to no laundry when we arrived home.
We're happy to hear everyone enjoyed their stay. This home is a favorite place for large groups to enjoy time at the beach. With so many bedrooms spread between the main house and the two floors of the carriage house - it allows everyone to have a little space to themselves, but still be near the group. We work hard to make sure it's comfortable and well-equipped for all of our guests - and we make sure the kitchen is set up for a large group too. Thanks for taking the time to write a review -- I'm sure our future guests appreciate it too!
Great house, close to the beach, private pool. We loved it!
We had a great week long stay here and highly recommend it. Very quick, short walk to the beach at the end of the street. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We absolutely LOVE this area of Destin.
You've got the right idea by staying for more than a week, Jen! We're so glad your group enjoyed your time at Crystal Mansion. We have many other homes in this Crystal Beach neighborhood so if the size of your group changes we'll still have you covered. We're looking forward to your next visit!
Beautiful home. Great location!! Very clean and well maintained
The house was 1 block from the beach, and a 2 minute drive to the shopping center and grocery store. The house was very clean.
We believe we have the best housekeepers in Destin and we're glad it shows! We hope you'll book with us again the next time you come to the area - all of our homes are held to these same high standards.
