You are here

Strolling the streets surrounded by warm breezes from the Gulf of Mexico. Paddling the calm waters of Choctawhatchee Bay and its tributaries as schools of fish flash beneath the water’s surface. Frolicking in the mild Gulf waters from your provided beach chair and umbrella on a magnificent sugar-sand beach. Playing a relaxing 18 holes on one of four immaculate golf courses renowned for their water features and bay views. Peddling leisurely along the miles of designated bike and cart trails. Relaxing on your private screened porch with salt and serenity heavy in the air.

All these features and more create a Florida beach vacation like no other in the Crystal Lake community of Sandestin. Once you pull directly up to your rental unit and use its provided parking to load into your vacation home, you will find easy access to all the amenities of the resort right at your fingertips. From the moment you arrive and see the picturesque coastal cottages (all one- or two-story single family homes) of your chosen community, you will know that this Destin, Florida vacation will turn out like no other. Check-in becomes a breeze with our automated door locks to give you access to your temporary home as soon as you arrive without the hassle of front-desk procedures.

Now that you have arrived in Sandestin, what will you do? Perhaps, like so many, the beach calls you to its endless tides. Take yourself, your book, and your family out to the storied sand and water of Miramar Beach. As our guest you have access to beach chairs, an umbrella, sand toys, and boogie boards. Build sand castles, ride the waves, or bask in the sun on a beach considered one of the prides of Florida.

If you gravitate to sport, you can access one or all of our four championship golf courses directly from your vacation home, most of which have cart rental available. Or, perhaps, the exertion and intensity of tennis is more your speed. Participate in daily Round Robins in our 15 court facility or just play amongst yourselves if you prefer. And no sporting trip to the Destin area can be considered complete without some opportunities for fishing. Whether you prefer the solitude and silence of kayak fishing or the high-thrills experience of catching the deep-sea fish of a lifetime, Sandestin has all of those things to offer.

Maybe you would prefer to picnic by the serene, spring fed lake at the center of our property. We have facilities available around the perimeter for that very thing, and if the sea waters don’t beckon, the lovely neighborhood pool could provide an alternative. If staying close to your Florida vacation home seems more your style, the stocked lake also provides its own fishing opportunities.

Though you came to the beach to get away from it all, you may still feel the need to hit the gym, and Sandestin’s state of the art fitness facility can give you that opportunity. Need to unwind after a workout or a day on the water? Visit our first-class spa and enjoy all the amenities it has to offer.

These things offer just a taste of the opportunities for leisure on your Destin Vacation. But perhaps relaxation isn’t for you. Perhaps you need adventure! If you just can’t keep your feet on the ground, how about seeing the beautiful Miramar Beach from the air? Parasail over the storied waters of the Emerald Coast. Learn to kiteboard over the waves, gliding from one to the next. Take a helicopter ride over the entire Destin area and scope out places to explore. Live out your adventurous dreams with the zip-line or, if you’re truly brave, with a bungee jump. You’re on vacation, no need to keep your feet on the ground.

The truly marvelous thing about a Destin, Florida beach vacation is this: you don’t have to pick just one thing! You can lounge one day, golf the next. You can kiteboard in the morning and receive a massage in the early evening before you take a nighttime cruise around the Bay. Fish then hike. Picnic then kayak. You and your family and friends will all find something to delight in the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and its surrounding areas.
