BEAUTIFUL REMODELED UNIT WITH INCREDIBLE GULF VIEWS

Crystal Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Gulf views from the kitchen, living room, and balcony of this newly remodeled and redecorated unit are spectacular.

Ideal for a couple or small family who wants to relax along this charming, less-traveled strip of old Highway 98.

Beach is literally a minute's walk from your door, and great dining and entertainment are a short drive or bike ride away (area has miles of paved bike paths).

Your only regret about this unit will be having to leave it.

About The Owner

My wife and I live in Pensacola, FL and have 3 small children. We love renting to couples and families with kids because we love the condo so much and truly enjoy knowing that others are enjoying the great views, the relaxing days, the ocean breezes and the starry nights!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Crystal Beach

Grand Caribbean is just a peaceful place that offers great views, a quiet, sheltered pool and hot tub area. We love that you can walk to various places to eat, drink, and socialize. The beach is literally a 30 second walk from your door. It's a place where you feel a part of what's going on, yet you have your own space.

The beach is literally steps away & lifeguards are on duty every day. If you're a pool person you'll be happy to know it really is directly below the condo and easy to access. The pool location was actually the worst issue for us because there was a family that stayed in the pool all day and night (past the 10 pm closing time), yelling throwing balls, wrestling and being obnoxious. They pretty much took over the pool area (and invited friends from other condos to join in) and made it impossible for others to enjoy the area at all. We actually couldn't hardly have a conversation on the balcony some nights because they were so loud and obnoxious.

Eating out: you can walk west to 790 on the Gulf for $9.99 all you can drink mimosas from 11-3, they also have good food, it's just a little pricey. You can walk east to the Crap Trap, just .5 mile. They have great food, a nice beach bar & a playground in the sand for the kids.

If you continue a little further east you will hit Pompano Joe's and one of our favorites, Kenny D's.

Overall we were beyond happy with the condo and hope to return again next year. The location and size is just perfect for us.

The process to secure our week was seamless & getting into the condo was a breeze--no office to check in or out with. Just went to the condo & used the provided code to get the keys out of the lock box and we were in.

First impression: the condo smelled amazing (very clean), the decor was contemporary (very Pinterest worthy) and the view was priceless!

Inside the condo we found just what we need for cooking a nice breakfast each morning and grilling out (bring your own charcoal & lighter fluid). We donated a lighter, bag of charcoal & lighter fluid to the condo for the next visitors.

We did laundry in the slim washer/dryer combo in the closet and had no issues. Note to future renters: if you use the dryer, please clean the lint trap at the back of the dryer (inside the drum). If you turn the hall lights on you can see how to access it better. We cleaned it out and it was packed full of lint and the actual compartment itself was packed as well, doubt it has been waved out in the last year. I would hate to hear that this place burned down.

The bathroom has adequate storage and a nice shower. The curtain set up is not the best so water escapes the shower easily. Just keep an eye on it & adjust the shower head if you notice water escaping. There are lots of towels, but no bath mat-that would be a good addition to the space.

The bedroom is a good size with a nice dresser for storage and a small closet. The bed mattress really needs to be replaced. My husband and I actually took turns sleeping on the twin in the hall it was so bad. The bunk beds in the hall are really not too bad. Our son slept there the first night and loved having his own little cubbie.

They put drawers underneath the bottom bunk which was perfect for our sons clothes--easy for him to access. One drawer is reserved for beach toys, we left ours there with the others for the next visitors.

The cable package included Bravo, which is rare so I even got to keep up on my trash tv while on vacation.

MY NEW VACATION SPOT WHEN I VISIT DESTIN!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here in April during Spring Break. It has been one of our most enjoyable vacations!! The condo location is perfect and along what I consider to be one of the most beautiful areas in Destin Beach. The weather was perfect and the condo itself was well appointed and cozy. We enjoyed sitting on balcony looking over the pool and at views of the gulf! We also rented bicycles and there were bike stands to secure your bike on the property. What a blast we had and can't wait wait to return to your property.

Owner's Response: The location is what originally made my wife and me fall in love with place--the fact that you can walk to so many local places to have a good time and enjoy Destin. And yes, sitting on that balcony is mesmerizing! So glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you again!

Summer Vacation 2013

  • 5 of 5
Arrived on Saturday 6/22/13 and place was just as described and appeared in pictures. Owner was easy to work with and check in was a breeze. Bed was very comfortable and kids stated that their hallway bunk beds were nice also. Location was wonderful, even though your have to cross the street to get to beach dont let that bother you. I was on the beach within 2-3 minutes of me shutting my door. Balcony overlooked the pool so you could watch the kids and enjoy an adult beverage at the same time. Washer/dryer worked well and was vey nice not having to leave your unit to do laundry. A/C worked well even though I had to turn it down further than i normally do at my house; but it will def kee this place ice cold. We did prepare breakfast and lunch at the condo but usually ate out for dinner. This is the only thing that I saw was lacking was the amount/style of cooking ware. Was just a few different pieces of older cooking ware; if you are going to be cooking much you might bring some with you. I was aware of this before I came so not so much of a dissapointment. The condo was clean but I'm not sure if the previous user washed the dishes before they put them up or if the cleaning service even checked them but that is not the owners fault. I would def stay here again and for the price you can't beat the . Great place for small families!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the thoughtful review! Certainly we know most people prefer to eat out on vacation, but we will certainly take a look at the cookware this off-season and upgrade it. At one time we had nice cookware, and I know this sounds crazy, but people do walk away with some of your things every once in a while! We usually don't see our unit between March and August, so that will be at the top of the list when we do go. Again, thanks for the insight, and we hope you do come visit again!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our mini vacation..We can't wait to visit this condo again. Perfect for 2 to 4 people. Great view and close to restaurants and shopping. Wes is so easy to deal with. He answered all of our questions and concerns promptly. Really liked not having to pickup the keys to the condo from somewhere across town. Thanks for everything Wes.

Owner's Response: It's funny you mention that--about not having to drive across town. Some people are nervous because there is no front desk. That is, until they experience what it's like NOT to have a front desk . . . and then they love it! So glad y'all enjoyed your getaway and we certainly would love to have you as a guest again!

Thanks so much for letting us stay in your condo. It was just perfect, for our little getaway! We had everything we needed, and I loved the rustic, antique look! We loved the fact that many places were close by, and loved the view. We also enjoyed sitting on the balcony, at night! Again, thanks so much, and we hope to get to stay again, in the future! If your considering renting, go ahead, you will not be dissappointed!

Owner's Response: You just hit the nail on the head: hanging out on that balcony . . . You know, my wife and I really do enjoy having people enjoy our unit (and thank you for noticing the rustic beach mix), but come fall we sooooo look forward to enjoying some time on that balcony! Hope to have you as a guest again!

Guests must be able to willingly and HONESTLY comply with those requests in order to rent. Emails between us are binding. We have never had a problem!
We usually take a 20% deposit to secure a reservation, unless we are within the month of your start date in which we usually request full payment.
