"Amazing place to stay at, the pictures don't do it justice. Location is perfect, communication with the landlord was on point, very clean and cozy. Absolutely recommend it." - Erick R. 07/2021

Swim in the clear emerald waters of the Gulf, hop the waves, sunbathe in the Florida sun, or play in the powder-like white sands of America's #1 beach. If you are an early riser, the sunrises can be magnificent. Otherwise, be sure to catch one of our famous sunsets on the beach. There is a kids public playground and a public bath house on the beach as well. From the front door of the home, it is only about 200 paces to the beach!

If you are flying in, or have a full vehicle already, you'll like that we provide high-quality beach chairs with straps, beach wagon, toys, and beach towels. No need to buy them just to pitch before leaving.

Get some work done, attend virtual meetings online school while visiting! We have high-speed 1 gigabit Internet service with the latest mesh WiFi technology. This lets many devices be online without interference.

After time on the beach or doing other activities, return to the Villa for a dip in the sparkling swimming pool located only 50 steps from the front door! The pool area includes restrooms with showers, as well as plenty of seating, and is heated February 15 - March 31. Pool hours are generally 8am to 10pm.

β€” THE HOME β€”

"Margarita Villa A" is a beautiful home located in the coveted Destiny Beach Villas in Crystal Beach! This listing is for the top floor of the duplex. It has 2 bedrooms; a Master with a king bed and ensuite bathroom, and a 2nd bedroom with a queen and a twin bed (not bunks). A second full bath is in the hall. It is an ideal layout for a couple's getaway, family vacation, or a friend-cation. The unit has its own high-capacity water heater and HVAC system with smart thermostat for your maximum comfort. With its separate entrance and deck, there are no shared spaces.

The rear of the home is on the edge of Four Prong Lake with a spacious deck to relax and enjoy the Florida beach weather and the water view. This fresh-water lake is generally so clear that you can see the bottom for quite some ways out from shore. You can watch the waterfowl, fish, and turtles go about their activities. There is a lakeside walking path. No swimming though. Fishing is not permitted on the property but is allowed on the beach, with a fishing license.

Tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished throughout, each bedroom and the living area has ceiling fans and an HDTV with connected Roku streaming device; just bring your own logins from your favorite streaming services or your cable provider -- Roku offers a wealth of options, including free streaming channels.

β€” KITCHEN β€”

The kitchen is well-equipped with all of the glassware, dinnerware, serving ware, and cookware needed to create meals for your group. There is even a coffee bar area where you will also find a drip-brewer, k-cup brewer, and an espresso machine. With a garbage disposal, microwave, dishwasher, oven/cooktop, and a larger refrigerator (more room to store food), it is great place to prepare your meals.

And, of course, there are Margarita glasses. Sorry, but Margaritas are not included.

β€” PARKING β€”

Up to 2 vehicles are allowed in the parking lot. Spaces are not assigned, but parking passes are required and provided. If you choose to rent a golf cart during your visit, it counts as one of the 2 permitted vehicles.

Permits *must* be displayed or vehicles may be towed. Due to being directly across from the beach, the community vigorously enforces this to ensure there is sufficient parking for residents and our guests. Even our parking lot is in high demand!


A complete floor-plan can be found in the photos for this listing.

You will enter from the front door and proceed up the stairway into the kitchen/dining area that extends to the living area. On your right will be the hall with a bath with tub/shower, the bedroom with queen and twin beds, and finally the Master bedroom with king bed, and ensuite bath with a large glass-enclosed shower, bidet, glowing blue-light mirror, and vanity-top lighted facial mirror with bluetooth audio.

Both bedrooms have an exterior door that opens onto the front balcony, where you will find a bistro set for enjoying your morning coffee or after-dinner beverage with a partial view of the Gulf.

From the living room, a door opens onto the lakefront deck with outdoor dining table, and a gravity chaise lounge chair.
