Crystal Lake 2042
This is a beautiful home but poorly kept up. There were bugs on the dishes in the cupboard-attracted no doubt by the dirty dishes therein. The glassware looked as if it had been taken directly from the dining table. Starting our vacation by washing all the dishes and flatware had not been high on my list of priorities - especially since no dishwasher detergent was provided. The placemats on the table were crusted with old food and who knows when the table was last washed. The lights hanging above the kitchen island had once been clear but the layers of dirt and kitchen grease made me glad I am short enough I didn't have to look at it. The carpet in the master bedroom has one side that is sadly discolored from use. The last VRBO home we stayed in had a kitchen stocked with standard spices and herbs for our use; laundry detergent; dishwasher detergent; spray bottle for small spills. When we used something up we replaced it. This floor was sticky with who knows what and nothing to clean it with! No rags, no **** and span or 409! They did provide us with brand new towels - but they were never washed ... they still had the manufacturer sizing on them so we needed to wash them before we could use them. And to go with the nice white towels? Dark blue wash cloths- necessitating another load or they would have turned all the white towels a lovely shade of light blue! Ok ... on the bright sideThe beds were comfortable, the rooms were spacious. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes,pots and pans, flatware, cooking utensils (I should know, I washed them all!) Wine glasses and coffee cups but no regular glasses like for milk, juice, soda. The golf cart was fun to use. There was plenty of hot water for 4 adults to shower every morning before attending the conference we were there for. The bus system was convenient. No view of the lake. The pool is incredibly small so we never did use it even though it is conveniently located.Robert W.

Perfect for our family of 6
We’re planning to stay here again next spring break! We loved the 6-seater golf cart, the Sandestin amenities, and the house had four large bedrooms, perfect for our family of 6. The house was well-stocked with new appliances and kitchenware, not leftovers like you find in most rental properties.

We had a great time here for a week long vacation. The 6 seater cart is the best thing ever and makes so many things convenient. We loved taking it shopping and to the grocery store in the evenings. Definitely pack essentials...we brought paper towels and toilet paper with us, but we were are only supplied one trash bag. That seemed like a stretch for a week long stay, so we ended up having to buy some basic stuff. Also no salt and pepper. Otherwise it was a great house and location!Jenna M.

Very clean, well maintained large home. Pictures don't do it justice. We were overly impressed the moment we opened the door! This rental is so well supplied with everything you could possibly need from dishes,beach chairs,toys,umbrellas and there's even a grill. The kitchen table is huge, we had a great time sitting around it playing Heads Up(which was one of the many games provided at the house) beds were comfortable, washer and dryer provided are great. We really enjoyed drinking coffee on the screened in porch every morning. The master suite is huge and is on the back side of the house and the other 3 bedrooms are at the front, the separation is great for privacy. The golf cart was great to take to the beach and all around Grande Boulevard. Nice quiet location. We've stayed at several properties at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and this is by far the nicest and we are already planning a trip back and will definitely rent this house again.Dawn B.

Great vacation home!
The house was tastefully decorated, beds were comfortable, nice TVs in all rooms. The kitchen farm table was gorgeous and was a center point for spending quality time with family playing games and eating. The sunroom was a nice addition to use for storing beach equipment and drying off before going inside. The golf cart was a big hit! It was fantastic having that to get from place to place. The community was nice and we enjoyed fishing, sight seeing, mini golf, and Baytowne. My only suggestion is to include amenity cards so that access is granted for all pools and discounts around the resort. Overall, we were greatly satisfied with our stay.Brook B.

2042 Crystal Lake Drive Vacation
Overall it was a great experience. The house is wonderfully laid out and in a great location - loved the neighborhood. As an interior designer I was very pleased with the layout of the home, color scheme and décor. My favorite part of the house was the back porch - spent a lot of time out there watching TV in the evenings! Only negatives, You do need to call a pest management company as we found quite a few roaches in the home, especially in the front parts of the home - bedroom and bathroom but also in the master closet. The home Appeared clean in general but the bugs (especially that kind) were concerning. Also, there is an issue with the range - the grates on the stove do not sit level.Sharon C.

Everything was just as described. Place was clean and very spacious. Would be nice to have another full bath with full occupancy. This area is off the beaten path and is quiet if that's what your looking for.Ryan W.

We have been vacationing in Sandedtin resort for over ten years and this rental home is by far our most favorite . Have stayed in this house twice so far and plan on going back again in the future . The owners are very generous and have done an amazing job decorating this home . It was also our second time renting through this company and Couple of issues came up during our stay on this trip and My Vacation Haven staff were very professional and helpful .Sepehr H.

House was great. Very spacious and excellent televisions in each room. Extra beach chairs wet also very nice. The golf cart could use some new batteries. You have 2 roundtrips to the beach max per day. We would drop off chairs that morning and then go back to the house and eat breakfast and then go back to the beach around 11. We would be close to not making it back! New batteries would make this the best place to rent!regan h.

Nice House but Dirty Furniture & Rugs
The home is well designed as far as layout. The cable channels were great and plenty. Unfortunately, there was no working cooling device for the patio so it unpleasant for lounging back there in the summer. We were disappointed that the furniture and rugs were pretty dirty and stained. Looked like they had not been cleaned for some time. The bedding was comfortable and mattress was also nice in the master. We also had to spray for roaches with the roach spray that was left in the laundry area. It seemed to help, however it wasn’t the best of things u want to do while on vacation. It is a beautiful home and would be a great place to stay again if these things were addressed.Cherrie R.
