Description

Welcome to Dolphin Retreat!

An ideal home for 2-3 families with children- we sleep up to 16 people.

You’ll enjoy a wonderful beach vacation in this spacious home, just steps from the beach! This home is a new rental with all new furniture and a COMPLIMENTARY 4-PASSENGER GOLF CART, 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. Dolphin Retreat is a large home, with a beautiful private pool (heated if you wish), and a separate guest house. It’s perfect for large or multiple families, or folks who just want a lot of space to spread out.

Your rental includes PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS with 2 chairs and 1 umbrella set up for you each day of your stay. It’s a hassle-free beach experience! Your entire group can set up other chairs, towels, or tents behind the rental chairs here too. You can also rent additional chairs/umbrellas, as available. (March-October)

The main house has a king bedroom and a bunk room downstairs with a full-over-full bunk, 2 full baths, plus a living area with a very classy built-in wet bar and queen-size sleeper sofa. Upstairs on the 2nd floor, you’ll find a large open concept kitchen/dining/living area, half bathroom, plus a king master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The separate guest house has a large open room with 2 queen beds plus a kitchenette, seating area, full bath, and walk-in closet.

When you arrive, you’ll immediately appreciate the front porch and balcony with heavy Adirondack chairs inviting you to relax and switch to vacation mode. Inside, you’ll find many amenities, a large open living and dining area with plenty of comfortable seating and an HDTV. The large dining table seats 8-10, and there is additional seating for more at the counter. And of course, there is also dedicated FREE WIFI.

The fully-stocked kitchen is open to the 2nd floor living area and has new stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter space. You’ll find all the dishes, pans and utensils you may need, a Keurig K-Cup coffee maker, and even a few spices, to get you started. We want you to feel at home, and the large, open layout is a perfect gathering spot for your family or friends. From here, you can step out onto the balcony overlooking the beautiful pool area.

OFF-STREET PARKING
The City of Destin has recently adopted very strict parking regulations. You may park up to 4 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. If you have a large truck, van or SUV, there may not be enough space to legally park 4 vehicles at this home.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Crystal Beach is the gold standard of Destin...no high-rise condominiums or beaches packed with 4 rows of vendor chairs. Crystal beach is mostly residential, which contributes to the quietness of the neighborhood. Just a few steps away is the Tarpon Street beach access, with "jetski" and other rentals available.

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 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”!
