About The Owner

If you want the cheapest, this one isn't for you. You are renting our second home not just another rental property. White carpet. Plush designer furnishings. All flat screen tv's/dvd player in every room. Solid granite eight top table with leather chairs. Leather swivel top bar stools. Corner unit with fantastic views. Powder white sand and emerald green water. At the Dunes of Crystal Beach, only 20 units share over 200ft of beach, meaning not as crowded. Complex is gated and requires guest security code access throughout.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Crystal Dunes

The condo layout is unique with the circular foyer. Three balconies with the oversized beachfront balcony is unbeatable. The larger than normal den and master suite and open floorplan with the kitchen and den flowing straight to the balcony is like no other condo we looked at. We looked from 30A to Destin and this unit was always our favorite. The former owners had impeccable taste from the bed linens to the furnishings, to the colors, to the upgraded light fixtures including the hall Murano glass sconces, to the rear balcony furnishings. The beachside pool and hottub, the short walk to the beach, and only sharing your beach with 20 other units is better than the crowded highrises! A 2661sq ft unique floorplan compared to the same Destin shotgun 2200sqft floorplan and three balconies, combined with a huge 800 sq ft beach balcony kept drawing us back to this unit. Only the end units in Dunes of Crystal Beach have this layout. In the three months of looking at condos, this always our first choice over all others! And you are right in the heart of Destin close to everything!

What makes this condo unique

Luxurious corner unit beach front condo with huge balconies. Five room - king / queen / queen /2 bunk beds (4 twins) /2 couches. Ground level is parking. We have two covered reserved parking spaces. Complex is only 4 stories with 5 units on each floor. We are on the second floor poolside end unit (3rd level height because of ground level parking). Beach balcony fully furnished with Bahama style sofa, love seats, footstool, and end tables. Perfect for relaxing with friends and family, soaking up the sights and sounds, or taking a nap! Dinner table for 8, bar stools for counter dining - an additional 6 spots, and balcony furnishings to fit everyone at the same time, compared to other units that sleep 10-12 but seat only 4-6. Two full size refrigerators for your drinks and groceries!! Plus a wine/beverage cooler.

Excellent Condo! Modern, well-equipped, and spacious.

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on October 11, 2014 and LOVED our stay. The condo is the end unit on the second floor with a great view of not only the beach, but the pool too! The condo has plenty of space to relax and the size of the balcony is awesome. You can go out there and relax with morning coffee or look at the stars over the water at night! The storage area in the parking garage is a great place to put all of your beach stuff and the chair service each day is well worth the price. We're already looking at weeks for next year!

Beautiful Location and Amazing Beach!! Loved our Family Vacation!

  • 4 of 5
We had such an Amazing Family Vacation! The unit was in a great location in the condo building. Loved the end unit and the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and hot tub. The unit was well stocked and the 2 refrigerators were Great! We had alot of lock codes to keep track of but that is the price for good security and was worth it. The beach service was well worth the extra money for Artie. Thanks for Sharing your beach home with us. We will be back!

Perfect for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5
Four generations of our family made the trip for the first beach vacation for our one-year-old daughter. The condo was perfect for us all, from the baby to the 85-year-old. A corner unit on the second floor, the balcony overlooked the pool and hot tub and close enough that we could talk to whomever was still upstairs. The furnishings were very comfortable and great quality. The kitchen was well-stocked, as was the laundry room with the extras like a high chair and playpen. The location of the condo is nestled along a quieter part of the beach with a quaint coffee shop a block away on the streetside. We'll be talking about our daughter's first trip to the beach with her great-grandmother for many years to come.

Great Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was all that it claimed to be plus more! We had the best vacation. The condo was perfect for our group 4 adults and 8 children. Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. Even the kids bunks were very comfortable. The condo was very clean when we arrived and it was stocked with everything you could ask for.

You are right in the middle of everything when you stay at this condo. The beach was beautiful and uncrowded. The beach chairs service was great to have. We didn't have to wake up early every morning to mark our territory on the beach. It was done already. There is only one row of chairs, not 3-4 rows like your high rise condos. Artie did a great job of spacing out the chairs as much as possible so everyone had their privacy. Although the pool was not big, it was never a problem. The complex is so small that there was rarely more than two families at a time.

We loved having our designated parking spots. It is so nice not to worry about where you are going to park when you come it later after eating out.

We tried many of the recommendations that were listed from previous reviews. Crab Island is a must do!! The kids had a blast. We tried Donut Hole but only the donuts. It was too busy to eat there. The donuts were ok! Crab Trap was fun for the kids. If you are looking for crab claws and don't want to pay an arm and a leg, you would be surprised, but try Fudpuckers. We were amazed at how much you got for the price.

Again, I think this is the best area in Destin, In the middle of everything. 10 minutes is the most you have to drive to get to anything. We enjoyed bike rides in the morning.

The Christina's were very helpful when problems arose. We had a problem with the dryer when we arrived. Murphy stayed with it and had it changed out in no time. We would gladly stay at this condo again! It isn't the cheapest, but after staying here, I can say that it is well worth the money. You get what you pay for!!

5 stars is not enough!!!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough nice things about this condo or it's owner. The property was simply amazing! We had several generations of our family (young children, teenagers, & adults) stay together & the condo was large enough for everyone to have their own space. The kitchen was fabulous and the eating area was large enough to accommodate us all. The extra fridge was a great addition to store cold drinks for our crew! As nice as the condo was, the beach view (from the huge balcony) and beach access was the best part. The beach never felt crowded due to the limited/low number of units on this property that share the beach access. It really felt like we were at a private beach! The downstairs storage room was so convenient and filled to the top with tents, chairs, boards & sand toys for our use. And last, but not least, Murphy was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Very professional, courteous & considerate. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!!!! 5 stars is not enough!
