We love to travel to see the way others see the world.
In our travels as a military family, we have not found a more peaceful and beautiful retreat than Destin. We have devoted every bit of loving care to details in our home to share the joyful experiences our family has had in Destin with our guests. Baby showers, weddings, college reunions, family reunions, and many celebrations have graced this home that is a quick two-block walk to the white and emerald shores of Destin! It is a place of light and laughter, which is why we have named it "Light of Mine." In keeping with this theme, our home is illuminated with custom lighting, which colors can be adjusted to suit the theme of your vacation. Built in late 2015 in the coveted Villages of Crystal Beach community, the four-story home hosts the most number of people possible in the community (19 heads in beds) with room to spare.
