COVID-19 Cancellations:

All Reservations are non-refundable and the dates are non-transferable unless:
(1) a short-term rental ban is reinstated in the Destin area for your travel dates (you’ll receive a refund less 10% processing fee); or
(2) the state where you live imposes a NEW* travel advisory (you can re-book for future dates with 10% processing fee).
*If there’s already a travel advisory in your state at the time of your booking then it’s exempt from any options to receive a refund or credit if you choose to cancel.

We highly recommend travel insurance as it should protect your payments in the event of illness. To our understanding, it also covers if anyone in your group has a positive COVID test result (but does not cover quarantines or travel restrictions due to COVID).

You already love Crystal Beach. Now you have found that quintessential Crystal Beach Cottage you have always been looking for!

This single story home is only rented to select groups looking for something extraordinary. This Crystal Beach cottage comes with a large front porch, an even larger screened-in back porch, a side porch, and two bedrooms, each with a comfortable KING bed. The master bedroom has an en-suite bath with custom shower and walk-in closet, and the second bedroom has an adjacent full bath with a skylight. This is the home your family or small group will want to rent every year!

This home has everything you could want in a beach cottage - and more: a custom kitchen, an inviting living/dining area, an extra living area in the back with built-in desk, a large screened-in back porch, a neat little side porch with an outside shower, and a great PRIVATE POOL in a beautifully landscaped backyard. The pool can be heated in the cooler months, for an additional fee. There’s even a piano in the home! All this, and it’s barely a block from the beach and the pristine white sands Destin and Crystal Beach are famous for.

We keep this home clean and well updated, and pay attention to amenities that you expect, such as high-speed wireless internet (FREE WIFI), a large 4K TV in the living room, big, fluffy bath towels and hair dryers in each bathroom, and more. We also provide items our smaller guests may need like a high chair and a pack-n-play.



Everyone will feel right at home when you gather in the inviting open living and dining spaces of this amazing home with new real white oak floors. Plantation Shutters are a welcome upgrade that will make your stay even cozier. You'll love the upgraded sofa and oversized chair where you can sit back and watch the large, high resolution, 4K Smart TV. There is also a new dining table that seats 6.


The custom kitchen is a chef’s dream with beautiful coastal cabinets and quartz countertops. The beautiful wood floors continue into this custom space which boasts higher-end stainless steel appliances, a gas stove with convection oven, and most everything you’ll need to cook nice meals.

The kitchen is equipped with plenty of dishes, pots and pans, serving dishes and utensils. There’s a Keurig K-Cup coffee maker, as well as a regular drip coffee maker. You’ll find a blender, toaster, and even a crock-pot in this well-equipped kitchen. We also supply many “extras” such as cleaning products, trash bags, aluminum foil, and plastic wrap.

For your convenience, we have a front-loading washer and dryer in the home’s walk-in laundry room, iron, ironing board, and a second refrigerator.

BEDROOM #1 – King Master with En-Suite Bath

This master bedroom has a comfortable KING BED, night stands and lamps, plus 2 tall chests, and a big Smart TV. There’s a walk-in closet too with clothing racks, drawers, and shoe storage. You’ll find nice large windows with plantation shutters, and an en-suite custom bath with walk-in closet.

BEDROOM #2 – King with Hallway Bath

This comfortable bedroom has another inviting KING BED, nightstand with lamp, plus a small chest and a Smart TV. It’s located near the back of the house, making it a welcoming private retreat.

The beautiful private pool is surrounded by stone decking and nice landscaping, giving you plenty of space to enjoy the Destin sunshine. The pool can be heated in cooler months for an additional fee. You can relax in the lounge chairs or at the dining table with chairs and umbrella for a little shade. For outdoor cooking, you’ll find a gas grill. And for your children’s safety, there are alarms on the doors leading to the pool from the main house.

The Shirah Street public beach access point is just a short walk to the end of the block! We provide a beach cart with beach chairs and umbrella, so you can roll your gear to the beach with ease.

This home is in the heart of Crystal Beach, a quiet, walkable neighborhood with white picket fences and easy access to shopping, restaurants and activities in Destin. 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, Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl & Grill, AMC Theater with IMAX and much more. Local favorite, Camille’s, is an easy walk and The Crab Trap is about a mile east. You can bicycle, scooter, Jet ski and go parasailing all within walking distance. The Silver Sands Outlet mall is not far for those who enjoy “retail therapy”!

Perfect home
Very comfortable house in great location. We enjoyed the screened back porch and pool area. The house was perfect for us with our small Dog. It was spotless and well stocked. We would not hesitate to rent this property again and hope to return soon. It was a relaxing week —thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Beautiful home in Crystal Beach
Sandy Toes is just as advertised. The home is lovely with so many thoughtful touches. We practically lived in that wonderful sunroom! Communication with Property Management was excellent. Check in and out was smooth and simple. Thank you for a beautiful place to stay.

Sandy Toes - Perfect for Us
Amazing location just 1 block from the Ocean. Pool was excellent and a perfect alternative to the Ocean. Really love that is off the main strip but only 5 minutes away. Highly recommend this location for a small group or just you and partner. We will be back! Federico and Kyla

5/5 Excellent

A Perfect Getaway
The house and location were exactly what we were hoping to experience on our first trip to Destin, FL. The amenities, including the heated pool, were awesome, and the walking distance beach was the best, soft white sand in the U.S! A definite recommendation to go back!!

5/5 Excellent

Cute Bungalow
