GULF FRONT, GROUND FLOOR, PRIVATE BEACH

Crystal Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Watch Dolphins swim by in Destin's largest gulf-front 1BR floor plan (1100 square feet). This condo is located on the ground floor, just steps from the beach. Bright paint colors makes this condo a happy place. A two person soaking tub and walk-in shower accommodate the most discerning beach goers. This condo has all the upgrades that a luxury condo is expected to have: granite, 18 inch tiles through out, and a king size luxury mattress. It has two flat screen TVs with BlueRay DVDs.

Cabana Club's is in the Crystal Beach area where the beach is very wide, uncrowded and quiet. The 4-story building has only 30 units. Cabana Club's beach is private with coded beach access. It's far away from public beaches and Destin's mondo condos.

Cabana Club is near everything including 790, Pompano Joe's, Whales Tail and Capt. Dave's restaurants. It's an easy walk to Camile's for Breakfast or the Crab Trap for dinner.

There are six golf courses within five minutes of Cabana Club. Sometimes our management company provides discounts for activities like golf, sailing, dining, fishing, etc.

Beach service is available, but unfortunately is not free (about $25/day for 2 chairs and an umbrella). Guests negotiate for beach service at the beach.

Cabana Club is located at Scenic Highway 98 at Crystal Beach, Destin’s most sought-after beach spot. This area of the beach does not allow buildings higher than 4 stories.

You are near shopping locations such as the new upscale Destin Commons (at the end of mid-Bay bridge) and Silver Shells outlet mall, amusement parks, and endless dining and entertainment options.

It comfortably sleeps 6 guests: two in the King sized master bed and four in the queen sized sofa sleepers. Wi-fi is available for free.

Wonderful beach view....

  • 4 of 5
My daughter and I stayed here for a week....and would have given this a 5 star review except the cleaner did not clean the floors very well. I am not talking about oil residue, I am talking about previous guests' spills and spots from general usage. And sand....we took our shoes off when we got here and could feel the sand on the tile floors.

The condo is well appointed, and we had everything needed for a comfortable stay.....and the beach views and access are top notch. A high top table and chairs on the patio would be a wonderful addition....just to be able to look over the deck railings instead of through them. The condo is very pretty, and we would definitely stay here again. For a great seafood selection, try Stinky' s Fish Camp at Santa Rosa beach, and McGuire's by the Destin bridge is fun, has good food, and $10 bottles of wine available with meals.

I would recommend this property to friends...and I would recommend the vacation rental company keep a closer eye on whomever is contracted for cleaning services.

You won’t want to leave…

  • 5 of 5
The view is absolutely incredible. ….you won’t want to leave the condo or the beach. We wanted a condo right on the beach and with this one, that is exactly what you get. The condo is really fun, with all the colors and very tasteful art work. The beach was not croweded. The grills were great for the fresh local fish we bought. We will definitely be back for this experience, hopefully real soon.

Absolutely Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
Great location near enough to walk to Camille's for breakfast, Crab Trap for lunch and 790 for dinner. Loved the first floor location near the beach access--it was sooo convienent. Loved the paint colors!!!! The condo was immaculate; clean in every corner. The decor and paint colors made us so happy. We would stay here every time we come to Destin if it is open!

Great time - Great Location, Nice Unit, A Few Small Issues

  • 4 of 5
I have somewhat missed feelings about the rental. For the most part everything was good, however, there were a few little things that soured the experience just a tad.

First the good: Location is perfect. ON THE BEACH! No crossing the road to get to the beach. A+++++. No fighting over beach space. The number of units in complex to the amount of beachfront is great. You're on the east side of Destin, so you can stay away from the insane crowds and traffic closer to Destin proper. Also easy to get to 30A towns (where we visited a few times).

Cabana Club seems to be kept up - The grounds were nice, clean, etc. The walkway to the beach was kept up, the hose to clean yourself and the beach toys worked well.

The actual condo unit is on the first floor - No lugging things up and down! The patio was great - the view from the living room and patio is amazing. I like the paint colors, the rooms, the nice bathrooms, decor was nice. Kitchen had everything we needed. Washer and dryer worked well.

The bad - I tend to think this is more the rental company rather than the owners. The owners did a nice job of making the place look nice - Here are the things that were issues.

Floors were dirty - We went to Walmart the first night and got a Swiffer WetJet. The pads were pretty black by the time we were done. I know that it's the beach, and things get sandy and grimy, but if you're paying $125 cleaning fee, they should be able to make the floors nicer than they were.

Garbage disposal was broken and patio sliding door lock was broken. A Southern Resorts repairman came out and got both to work, but until he did, the sink stunk REALLY bad and the door didn't lock. These weren't deal breakers, but it seems like things that should have been functioning properly before we moved into the property for the week.

Paint - This is just a minor detail, but stange nonetheless. The condo has some great colors, but there must have been a bunch of places that needed touch up, and instead of getting the same sheen, all the touchups are done in satin, while the original wall was in flat (or reverse). Anyway, it makes the paint somewhat patchy. Again, not a huge deal, but if you're going to have a nice condo on the beach, you should keep it maintained nicely.

I don't want to turn anyone off from renting this place, since the unit is nice and the location is amazing. I just hope this review is used to work out a few kinks that makes the experience that much better for the next person.

Owner's Response: The issue of black residue on the floors has been addressed all over Destin after the BP Oil Spill. No one really knows where the residue was coming from, but it is gone now. Our management company seems to have the floors in ship shape condition. Renters have been hard on the walls and touch up painting is being done every 6 months with paint that perfectly matches. We thank you for your comments and hope you come back.

Awesome view.

  • 5 of 5
The experience was awesome for our family. The view through the sliding glass door was as beautiful as the pictures and the access to the beach was very convenient since the condo was on the lower level and close to the beach entrance. The location was close to shopping and golf. The property was newly decorated and very clean and I highly recommend this particular rental.
