"We love the house
This is the second year we have stayed at this house. Unfortunately not everyone could come on the trip.but still had fun.only criticism we would have is the couch is very worn and uncomfortable. My husband
had hip surgery and couldn't sit on it"
Sep 24, 2018 - Cecilia J., Windsor, NY

"Awesome vacation
We had a great time with plenty of room for everyone to spread out for a relaxing time . The beach was just a short walk away . The area was very quite and well taken care of. Will plan on returning in the future."

"Nice Beach House
Plenty of room for our 11 person family! Just a short walk to the beach. Nice gas grill on the back patio. Loved the wagon to tote all the beach gear. "

"Summer trip to Destin
The house def has its wear and tear. All of the linens on the beds need to be upgraded, esp in the kids room. Plenty of kitchen utensils, which is very nice. Could use a bit of a deep clean and updating. "

"Short stay
Nice quite location! Only recommendation would be needs new cooking skillets, pots and baking pans. Great size for three families."

"Wonderful stay at St. Croix
Everything was great for our family of 11. Lots of room, many activities and comfortable sleeping."

"Destin family vacation
St croix was just right for our family vacation. Each family had a floor and the living dining and kitchen area was roomy. Easy walk to beach and pools. The wagon came in handy for the beach as did the chairs and toys. "

The house was as advertised. It had everything we needed and more. Was well maintained and comfortable for our group of ten. Short walk to the beach and restaurants. Would definitely stay again."

"Excellent vacation stay!
Excellent property with excellent location!Very well maintained! The wagon was a great addition! Kitchen was sort of sparsely equipped. Could've had a cutting board, as well. Overall, will highly recommend this property!"

"A dream place ...
A dream place ... to spend the excellent holidays, the house is very well equipped and well maintained."

"Great local for a Great Stay
My wife and I had the pleasure of renting this nicely done home for a family vacation. We loved the location as it is close to the beach and very close to the pool. The check-in procedure was easy and the information provided was accurate and useful. We had enough parking for 3 vehicles and is was nice and quiet for us. The unit is equipped with plenty of beach toys etc. including a wagon. Highly recommend the facility and the Crystal Waters group for handling the rental. "

"2017 Destin Vacation Stay
The property is in a good location, close enough to the beach for little guests to walk but still in a secluded, quiet cul-de-sac. The number and size of spaces was adequate. I had expected more from the bathrooms. They were all small and had low end builder fixtures and hardware. The kitchen was larger and easier to work in than previous rentals but it seemed to be sparsely equipped and there weren't nearly enough dishes and table service for the 12 guests staying here. Utensils were also in short supply and not always in good condition. We had to wash all the dishes before we used them because they were obviously dirty. There was a vacuum and 3 dustpans in the house but NO broom. A big problem at the beach with the sand that tracks in on little feet. Overall the house is good and in a good location. It could stand some refurbishing, new bedding, etc. We had one occasion to call for service when one of the toilets was leaking onto the floor on a Sunday. Although we were told it would probably be Monday before they could get someone there it was fixed on Sunday! We felt that was a good response."

"Family trip
All was good. This was our first trip to Destin. We have always gone to Gulf Shores. The house was smaller square foot than we expected. We had several bad weather days and 12 people cannot sit comfortably in the only sitting area. There should be more forks. I think there are exactly 12. There is no mixer and no cookie sheets. The company that handles the rental is great! There was good communication and quick turn around on the deposit.

"Destin Family Beach Trip
I rented this house for our annual family beach trip. My family and my sister's family. We were very happy with the size, it accommodated all of us nicely. The location is also good, we were able to get to everywhere we wanted to go within 20-30 min at the most. The bigger pool was only about a two minute walk from the house, but it was usually packed during the day, so we ended up going at night. We never walked up to the smaller pool as it was farther away. The beach was 5-10 minute walk, depending on how much stuff you were dragging with you, there is a wagon at the house which made it much easier to transport all the beach stuff. The walk is through the back of the neighborhood then across the parking lot of a condo building then across the beach road to a private beach access with a small beach side bar with picnic tables and restrooms. There is also a beach tent which was wonderful to set up next to our rented chairs and umbrella so the whole family could spend the day at the beach and have shade. I thought the house could be better stocked with kitchen needs but we were able to make do with what we had. The grill on the patio was also nice to have. Overall it was clean. "

"Spring Break with a large group.
St. Croix is a great vacation rental. It was clean,tastefully furnished and very well equipped. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space for everyone. Very convenient to shops and restaurants. There is no view of the beach as it is behind a large building but it is only a very short walk. A wagon was provided to carry things to the wagon parking at the beach which was really nice. Tyler, at Crystal Waters Realty was extremely helpful. I would rent again and would recommend this property without hesitation."

"It was amazing for our first family vacation to florida
Was very nice and pleased "

"great house for family
We rented this house in July and the family loved it. There was 14 of us and everybody was comfortable. The walk to the beach isn't to bad. I do wish they had a bigger wagon to carry everything but that is minor. I called because the battery in the smoke alarm was beeping and they came right out in just a few min. The house was supplied like it says. I can't say anything bad except maybe the driveway is to little for such a big house. We had 4 cars and we couldn't pull on the street so it was a struggle but we mad due."

"2016 Destin Vacation
Overall this was a great place to stay. Lot's of room for the our group of 9 people. The property is beautiful. We loved that there was a wagon to take to the beach as well as an easy up canopy. The walk to the beach was about 5 min but can seem long when dragging all the beach stuff with you. The trolley will not take you directly to the beach and was difficult to catch a ride. I would recommend this property get an ice machine which would have been a big plus. It was difficult to keep enough ice on hand and took up a lot of room in the freezer. Driveway was tight and the passengers had to exit into bushes (we drove a large pickup truck). When it rained this was a mess and you got wet from the bushes. The driveway also backed up with water after a big rain. When entering the house there was no light switch directly at the door you had to cross the room to switch it on. This made it very dark when entering at night. I would stay here again and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!"

"St. Croix
We stay at Emerald Shores every summer and this is one of the best houses we've stayed in. The only con was the parking, everything else was great! "

"great place!
great place and great time-- beautiful house with so much to do around!"

"St Croix August 2015
We really enjoyed the house and the location, however; we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the house. The reasons are as follows:
1. Found 3 huge dead cockroaches in a cabinet above the microwave
2. Found at least 10 long black hairs in the 3rd floor shower from previous visitors
3. Our children's feet were black after being barefoot on the 1st floor tile

As for the condition of the home, it was good except for one of the seats on the dining room table was broken and completely came off the legs of the chair.

Other than that, the house was very good."
Aug 23, 2015 - Brian F., Wilmington, OH

We have stayed in this complex for years and have moved houses several times. This is the second time we stayed at 20 Jade Cove and is definately one of the nicer houses in the complex as far as decor, location and set-up of home. The only complaint we had this year is that we feel the home needs some upgrades with applicances. The stove and refrigerator not only do not operate well but very outdated for such a beautiful home. There were also some minor things such as first fl bathroom door did not lock and a wall plate missing."

"St Croix - July 2015 Stay
Our stay at the St Croix was wonderful. The managament company was very helpful and easy to do business with. I would definitely stay at this house or any house in this community again. The community was well kept and quiet. I would also use Crystal Waters management company again. Pros – proximity to the beach, two pools, spacious home, location in Destin. Cons – traffic (but being from Houston we are used to traffic) , bring your own bath towels. The towels in the house are poor quality. But, that was our only complaint about the home. Also, our neighbor had a large dog. We never heard the dog but he was not on a leash one morning and scared us when we were leaving the house. The owner quickly grabbed him. It was never a big issue so we didn’t bring it up to the management company during our stay. Just be aware that some homes are pet friendly. Jackacudas at the Harborwalk was a great restaurant. We sat on the patio that over looked the water. We also went on a dolphin tour on the Sea Blaster and that was a lot of fun. "

"Great location!
Beautiful home in a great location. There were only a few minor issues ex: the third floor shower was extremely loud,the blender was broken and there was not a working can opener in the house. But those small isuses did not affect tje quality of the home. It was a wonderful experience and we would definitely use this location in the future. "

"sisters getaway
we had an awesome time everything was great the home was very relaxing the quietness was so that we never knew it even rained a little doing the night it was so good that i recomended it to others looking for a getaway. the only recomendation i have is the bands should be enclosed into the package because of the hours of check out there is almost an hour wait to redeem your band.they should be more available to the guests "

"What a great trip!!
We had a great time and both the property and neighborhood were great."

"Spring Break
This house was perfect for our group. It was close to the pool and an easy walk to the beach access. The kitchen was well-equipped.

"South Central Illinois Snowbirds
We have been coming to Emerald Shores for eight years and four of those stayed at St Croix. This has been the ideal place for our family numbering anywhere from eleven to two people. Golfing, shopping,and swimming are our passion, so this is the ideal location for us "
