    My wife and I had the pleasure of renting this nicely done home for a family vacation. We loved the location as it is close to the beach and very close to the pool. The check-in procedure was easy and the information provided was accurate and useful. We had enough parking for 3 vehicles and is was nice and quiet for us. The unit is equipped with plenty of beach toys etc. including a wagon. Highly recommend the facility and the Crystal Waters group for handling the rental.

    a guest from Scottdale, GA recommends this vacation rental

    I rented this house for our annual family beach trip. My family and my sister's family. We were very happy with the size, it accommodated all of us nicely. The location is also good, we were able to get to everywhere we wanted to go within 20-30 min at the most. The bigger pool was only about a two minute walk from the house, but it was usually packed during the day, so we ended up going at night. We never walked up to the smaller pool as it was farther away. The beach was 5-10 minute walk, depending on how much stuff you were dragging with you, there is a wagon at the house which made it much easier to transport all the beach stuff. The walk is through the back of the neighborhood then across the parking lot of a condo building then across the beach road to a private beach access with a small beach side bar with picnic tables and restrooms. There is also a beach tent which was wonderful to set up next to our rented chairs and umbrella so the whole family could spend the day at the beach and have shade. I thought the house could be better stocked with kitchen needs but we were able to make do with what we had. The grill on the patio was also nice to have. Overall it was clean.

    Harold M from Roswell, GA recommends this vacation rental

    St. Croix is a great vacation rental. It was clean,tastefully furnished and very well equipped. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space for everyone. Very convenient to shops and restaurants. There is no view of the beach as it is behind a large building but it is only a very short walk. A wagon was provided to carry things to the wagon parking at the beach which was really nice. Tyler, at Crystal Waters Realty was extremely helpful. I would rent again and would recommend this property without hesitation.

    Charlotte S from Roxana, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Overall this was a great place to stay. Lot's of room for the our group of 9 people. The property is beautiful. We loved that there was a wagon to take to the beach as well as an easy up canopy. The walk to the beach was about 5 min but can seem long when dragging all the beach stuff with you. The trolley will not take you directly to the beach and was difficult to catch a ride. I would recommend this property get an ice machine which would have been a big plus. It was difficult to keep enough ice on hand and took up a lot of room in the freezer. Driveway was tight and the passengers had to exit into bushes (we drove a large pickup truck). When it rained this was a mess and you got wet from the bushes. The driveway also backed up with water after a big rain. When entering the house there was no light switch directly at the door you had to cross the room to switch it on. This made it very dark when entering at night. I would stay here again and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

    Barbara H from Knoxville, Tennessee recommends this vacation rental

    We rented this house in July and the family loved it. There was 14 of us and everybody was comfortable. The walk to the beach isn't to bad. I do wish they had a bigger wagon to carry everything but that is minor. I called because the battery in the smoke alarm was beeping and they came right out in just a few min. The house was supplied like it says. I can't say anything bad except maybe the driveway is to little for such a big house. We had 4 cars and we couldn't pull on the street so it was a struggle but we mad due.

    a guest from Harrison, OH recommends this vacation rental

    We have stayed in this complex for years and have moved houses several times. This is the second time we stayed at 20 Jade Cove and is definately one of the nicer houses in the complex as far as decor, location and set-up of home. The only complaint we had this year is that we feel the home needs some upgrades with applicances. The stove and refrigerator not only do not operate well but very outdated for such a beautiful home. There were also some minor things such as first fl bathroom door did not lock and a wall plate missing.

    • Manager Responded on 8/16/2015

      So glad you enjoyed your stay at St. Croix! Thanks for coming back! We will address the appliances and bathroom door. It is one of the nicer homes in the neighborhood and very close to all the amenities!

    a guest from Houston, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    Our stay at the St Croix was wonderful. The managament company was very helpful and easy to do business with. I would definitely stay at this house or any house in this community again. The community was well kept and quiet. I would also use Crystal Waters management company again. Pros – proximity to the beach, two pools, spacious home, location in Destin. Cons – traffic (but being from Houston we are used to traffic) , bring your own bath towels. The towels in the house are poor quality. But, that was our only complaint about the home. Also, our neighbor had a large dog. We never heard the dog but he was not on a leash one morning and scared us when we were leaving the house. The owner quickly grabbed him. It was never a big issue so we didn’t bring it up to the management company during our stay. Just be aware that some homes are pet friendly. Jackacudas at the Harborwalk was a great restaurant. We sat on the patio that over looked the water. We also went on a dolphin tour on the Sea Blaster and that was a lot of fun.

    Beautiful home in a great location. There were only a few minor issues ex: the third floor shower was extremely loud,the blender was broken and there was not a working can opener in the house. But those small isuses did not affect tje quality of the home. It was a wonderful experience and we would definitely use this location in the future.

    • Manager Responded on 6/17/2015

      So glad you enjoyed your stay at St. Croix! Not sure why the shower was loud but we will look into that! As far as a blender or can opener, they do break or disappear on occasion but we are just a phone call away to bring you a new one! We'll make sure the house has them for the next group.

    we had an awesome time everything was great the home was very relaxing the quietness was so that we never knew it even rained a little doing the night it was so good that i recomended it to others looking for a getaway. the only recomendation i have is the bands should be enclosed into the package because of the hours of check out there is almost an hour wait to redeem your band.they should be more available to the guests

    We have been coming to the Destin area for the last 10 years and have come to love the Emerald Shores area. We have been staying in the St. Crook home for the last 4 years, and we love it. The location to the beach and shopping areas is great. The gated community is well maintained and always looks great. The property on arrival was very clean. We have dealt with the management for several years and they have always been great to work with. I would recommend this property to anyone who likes to be by the prettiest beaches on the gulf. There are several golf courses close by and all are kept in great condition. There are several eating places nearby and the drive along the beach is beautiful.
