Our vacation. We really enjoyed staying at this beach house. We had 6 adults and 2 children. We had plenty of room for everyone. We could come and go as we wanted to. The beds were my favorite part. They were very comfortable. I’ve stayed in many places and never had a bed as comfortable. The only thing I would recommend changing would be the parking situation. We had three vehicles and only two would fit in the driveway. The third person had to park at the pools. I did not like that. The whole complex was nice and clean. Oils were nice. Beach was easily accessed. Thank you! Response from Crystal Waters Realty; Tuesday, July 9, 2019 Hi Donna, We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Serendipity! It's always nice to have enough room for everyone in your group to spread out a bit. Unfortunately there's not much we can do to change the parking situation at this home, but at least there is the overflow parking at the pool and tennis courts. It would be tough if this wasn't an option, like at some other communities. ~Crystal Waters Vacations

Relaxing stay The property and location are great! The rooms are large and the beach is close! Beach ammenities, (retail,parasailing,restaurants) are all within walking distance. The layout of the house fit our needs (6 adults) perfectly. <br/>There are just a few minor issues that the owners might consider addressing. The front porch is very closed off and difficult to use due the expansive shrubbery. The magnolia's need to be trimmed-they covered our vehicles with sap. Inside, just a couple of maintenance issues. The shower handle in the MB is very loose and the vanity faucet is loose, as well. The cushions on the couch (1st flr) need attention. The tile floor needed to be mopped when we arrived, it was dirty. The ice maker in the fridge is in need of repair. Lastly, the bed sheets did not appear to have been cleaned properly. Maybe the washing machine is not big enough to handle the load. As I said, most are minor issues. <br/>The property is one we will definitely consider renting again. We were part of a large family that rented 3 houses in Emerald Shores. It is a very friendly atmosphere and very kid friendly. We have always felt safe and secure at Emerald Shores. Response from Crystal Waters Realty; Monday, June 17, 2019 Hello Scott, Thank you for the feedback on your stay at Serendipity. We will certainly address the issues you mentioned.

Great Place to stay We have rented many, many houses so we are very experienced renters. This was a great property. It would even be good for two families. There are three king bedrooms, plus pull-out couches if that is not enough. Two floors with two family rooms, you don't see that very often. But what I really liked was the kitchen. It had a big gas stove and a wonderful set of stainless steel pans. i like to cook and this kitchen had nearly everything. The rest of the appliances were all top notch as well. The neighborhood is tight and parking more than two cars would b e a problem, but it's a short walk to the beach and there are many good restaurants around plus nice shopping. The house was clean and nothing was broken. We had a very nice time. Response from Crystal Waters Realty; Wednesday, January 18, 2017 So glad you enjoyed your stay at Serendipity!

Wonderful Property We had a great time in Florida. Staying at this property made an even more relaxing and it felt like home. Being able to bring our puppy with us was an added bonus. The property is beautiful and in a great location it was even close to the Dollar General where I could walk and get things that I needed. And go in the other direction and you're able to walk to the beach without having to get in your car and drive everywhere. It was a wonderful experience. My family is planning on having a family reunion next year and we are going to actually look into renting two or three houses for the family to stay in this beach community.

Excellent Stay Our family truly enjoyed the stay at Serendipity in July 2015. The house is very spacious, we had no trouble accommodating 9 guests. Each room had a king bed which was very important to us. We didn't want any of the couples to have to sleep in bunk beds or small beds like the ones found in many 3br rental homes. The kitchen had a regular coffee maker as well as a keurig brewer, both of which we used throughout the stay. There is a gas grill on the patio- one night we picked up some fresh grouper from the market and had a feast! The living areas are spacious and at no time did we feel cramped in the home. <br/><br/>The beach was about a 10 minute walk with our gear. I'd recommend bringing along some type of collapsible wagon to help haul things to the beach. There were a few golf carts driving through that would periodically give us a lift to and from the beach. The beach itself is well kept, and the staff is friendly.<br/><br/>The neighborhood has 2 pools and a tennis court. We didn't use the pools as we are all more of ocean people when at the beach, but they appeared clean. The house is centrally located to many Destin attractions. Capt Dave's restaurant is just next door, and several other restaurants are close by. Overall, everyone in our group really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. Response from Crystal Waters Realty; Thursday, July 16, 2015 So glad you enjoyed your stay at Serendipity. It is a spacious homes with nice upgrades. Having 3 King beds is nice and comfortable! The 2 living rooms allows for the group to spread out a bit! There is a wagon on site to pull your beach toys and coolers to the beach. Beach Chairs are available on the beach for a fee. The walk is usually only about 5 minutes for most people, just about a 1/4 mile. During the Summer, there is also a free tram to take people to and from the beach!

Serendipity Vacation Review Really an excellent, relaxing, family-friendly vacation. House was 100% ready when we arrived and had all the amenities that we could ask for.

Nicely decorated and furnished and always clean and comfortable!

Beautiful home The house is amazing. The kitchen had absolutely everything you could need and much more. We traveled with 7 adults and had plenty of personal space with two living areas and 5 tvs. The location was short drive to shopping and restaurants. The pool was great and short walk. The walk to the beach was easy and the wagon made hauling all your gear a breeze. They even had boogie boards and sand toys available to use. The cabana at the beach is sooo nice with shaded seating and restrooms. My only complaint is we didn't stay longer. Response from Crystal Waters Realty; Sunday, August 16, 2015 So glad you enjoyed your stay at Serendipity! It is a special home in the best vacation neighborhood along our stretch of beach! Serendipity has 3 king beds and 2 living rooms. We do our best to keep it clean and comfortable for everyone!

Spring Break 2016 Overall the house was decent, but the floors were not clean when we arrived and the bathrooms are fairly small and not updated, considering the size of the house. Response from Crystal Waters Realty; Thursday, April 7, 2016 Hmmm! Serendipity has a new kitchen with granite counters and fairly new upgraded appliances such as Bosch and Samsung. It also has a 60 inch plasma TV and new leather living room furniture just this Spring!! The bathrooms are more than adequate for a vacation rental! The hall bath upstairs has a shower but the other 2 bathrooms have big tubs and the master upstairs has a garden tub! As far as updates to the bathrooms, not sure what is expected but they are nice and functional. The house was inspected before check in. Very sorry the floor was dirty. It certainly didn't appear dirty and never heard that there was a problem. We are dedicated to providing a clean and comfortable rental for all our guests. If we had known there was a problem with the floor, we could have sent the cleaning crew back over. Very sorry you weren't completely satisfied.

We had a great time in Florida. Staying at this property made an even more relaxing and it felt like home. Being able to bring our puppy with us was an added bonus. The property is beautiful and in a great location it was even close to the Dollar General where I could walk and get things that I needed. And go in the other direction and you're able to walk to the beach without having to get in your car and drive everywhere. It was a wonderful experience. My family is planning on having a family reunion next year and we are going to actually look into renting two or three houses for the family to stay in this beach community.

The property description was accurate. The cleaning crew was very busy so the house was not as clean as it could have been. Customer service was excellent. I would recommend the property to a friend.

I rented this house for 10 family members. There was enough room for all of us. It was only a block away from the large pool and walking distance from the ocean. Very relaxing.

We have rented many, many houses so we are very experienced renters. This was a great property. It would even be good for two families. There are three king bedrooms, plus pull-out couches if that is not enough. Two floors with two family rooms, you don't see that very often. But what I really liked was the kitchen. It had a big gas stove and a wonderful set of stainless steel pans. i like to cook and this kitchen had nearly everything. The rest of the appliances were all top notch as well. The neighborhood is tight and parking more than two cars would b e a problem, but it's a short walk to the beach and there are many good restaurants around plus nice shopping. The house was clean and nothing was broken. We had a very nice time.

Our family truly enjoyed the stay at Serendipity in July 2015. The house is very spacious, we had no trouble accommodating 9 guests. Each room had a king bed which was very important to us. We didn't want any of the couples to have to sleep in bunk beds or small beds like the ones found in many 3br rental homes. The kitchen had a regular coffee maker as well as a keurig brewer, both of which we used throughout the stay. There is a gas grill on the patio- one night we picked up some fresh grouper from the market and had a feast! The living areas are spacious and at no time did we feel cramped in the home. <br/><br/>The beach was about a 10 minute walk with our gear. I'd recommend bringing along some type of collapsible wagon to help haul things to the beach. There were a few golf carts driving through that would periodically give us a lift to and from the beach. The beach itself is well kept, and the staff is friendly.<br/><br/>The neighborhood has 2 pools and a tennis court. We didn't use the pools as we are

The cottage is very well equipped with plenty of space for everyone. Delighted with the separate balconies and general layout of accommodation. The property was accurately described and really close to all amenities. Clean and well-maintained and would highly recommend the cottage we will definitely want to return here soon.
