Why Rebecca Callaway chose Crystal Beach: We visited Destin last September and fell in love with the area! So, we decided to buy our vacation home here! You will love the beaches, and shopping and restaurants!
Guestbook comments from the owner: Theo Stanford Atlanta, GA Incredible The first thing we noticed upon entering the Chilley Gilley is the immaculate decor! The decor was rivaled only by the comfort of the entire home. I have traveled the world by plane (Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, etc.) and though we actually drove from Atlanta to Destin, this was possibly the best vacation ever and that's because of the comfort of the home. Our trip was in celebration of our mom's 85th birthday, and the home and the beautiful beaches and area of Destin made it a momentous and memorable occasion! We are already making plans to return to Destin and will certainly check to see if our home away from home (Chilley Gilley) is available!

A beautiful home, in a secure, gated community. The Villages of Crystal Beach in general and Chilly Gilley specifically were perfect. Peaceful and close to restaurants, shops, beaches and golf. Great complex with very private, spacious, pool and poolside lounging area. Rebecca and Paul have a beautifully decorated home that was comfy from the moment we stepped foot on the property. We recommend this property to any and all seekers of panhandle rest and relaxation.

We loved the area, the directions of how to get into the unit, the convenience of having everything nearby, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the size of the bedrooms and dining area. The kitchen is a bit small, but adequate. There were minor inconveniences, which did not impact us terribly, but were a little bit annoying. There were only 3 garbage bags for 5 days, & we ran out on the 2nd day, and since we were instructed to not put loose garbage in the bins, understandably, we used grocery bags which were thankfully left by someone else. There were a lot of warning notes posted everywhere, too, with the threat of fines if we did not comply. The bathroom shower upstairs has a warning, about the shower curtain, but even if you use it properly, water still goes everywhere, so it's not the user's fault for this, but the design of the tub itself. I know these are little quirky annoyances, but it did matter. We stripped the bed linens as asked, and obeyed the rules, but we wondered "how much time does it save the cleaning service to do that job themselves?" Perhaps 5-10 minutes? Wouldn't it leave a better taste in your guests' mouths if you said "don't worry about anything, the cleaning service (that you paid for) will take care of everything?" Also the dishwasher was not working properly, we did one load and it was fine, but the 2nd time it would not work, the detergent dispenser was broken, we aren't sure. When we texted Rebecca, she told us not to worry about it. But we were glad it didn't break on the first day we were there. We ended up leaving dirty dishes in the dishwasher plus quite a few on the small kitchen counter.
A few of the mattresses should be replaced, especially the master bedroom, it feels like you are sleeping in a hammock, very uncomfortable.
The neighborhood was fairly quiet (as were we, because there were warnings about being loud) except for the next door neighbor's two dogs, who were left on their own, on the balcony, all day, to bark at us.
Overall, it served our purpose and it was fine. Rebecca was pleasant to deal with, was quick to respond to our questions, and allowed us early entry (no charge) since the unit was vacant.

We really enjoyed our stay. The quietness was a plus sine we were all 50+. It is a beautiful home with everything you need. Wish the beach was closer but it was only a short drive. Would definitely stay again.

Absolutely loved this place!!! We had plenty of space with 7 ppl and it is a very nice home. There's a trolley to the beach, but honestly it's only about a 1/4 mile so we just walked. Alot of beach stuff already there(big wagon as well) and a very nice community pool. No downside to this property!!! It is a fairly late check-in of 4pm, and early check out 10am.($300 fee for violations) So if you have kids make sure to plan for that. I promise you'll have no regrets!
Stayed August, 2017
Gave everyone their own private space. Many amenities over and above what was expected. Decor was fantastic. Pool was huge and very nice though it was crowed all the time. Probably needed a second pool in order to accommodate the area. Considering it was a family area it was quiet. We loved it!

Nice place in Destin. We enjoyed our stay. There were a couple of minor things that needed improvement but overall, it was well worth it to rent this house!
