Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed in this condo June 2011 and absolutely loved it. It was far enough away from the pool so there was not alot of noise at night. The condo had the most comfortable king size bed in the master room that I have ever slept in on vacation. Thank you guys for making this a very relaxing visit for us. We look forward to next year!

Our beach get away has been perfect for our family. My wife and I have been married for 18 years and have been to Crystal Sands every year. We have two children and have had plenty of room.

Location Location Location! You stay here once and you will know why this property is so popular. If you like the beach you feel you have struck it rich. Closest to the ocean you can get. Easily walk down with your coffee or back up for lunch, bathroom etc. This first floor unit makes your vacation one you won't forget.

It's like this : You know you are in love with the Emerald coast the 1st morning you wake up and sip your coffee on your balcony and decide if you are going to stroll the beach, swim in the pool, go shopping, play golf, go fishing, parasailing, play volley ball on the beach, etc....??Discover what Destin has to offer....??15 min walk to Beach Walk Cafe 850-650-7100?15 min walk....

GREAT PLACE FOR A WEEK OF FUN IN THE SUN

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time on our beach vacation. We have stayed at Crystal Sands for the past 3 years. This condo was by far the nicest and cleanest of those we have rented. The decor was "beachy" and helped set the atmosphere for a great week. It is located on the first floor (huge plus). I feel comfortable allowing my children to run back in for snacks etc, as I can watch them from the beach. It was very clean!
The condo had the essentials and the kitchen was well stocked with all the items I needed to cook dinner for the family, which was a ton of fun! Another nice and fun surprise were the card and board games available. We had a great time in the evening relaxing and having family fun with UNO and games.
When we wanted to go out for the evening for dinner or shopping everything is right there! The location of the condo is great! Crystal Beach is a wonderful place. Beach service was provided and the guys at Twilight Beach Service are great too. Beach rentals including kayaks, paddle boards, rafts, floats and para sailing are all located right there at the beach. There is a snow cone stand as well.
The washer and dryer is full size (some of the other condos have only apt. size, which makes for many loads of clothes). Another huge plus for me... there was always hot water!!!
Matthew was great to work with. He was very attentive, responded to any questions and concerns very quickly. He also sent all of the pre-vacation material (door codes etc) in advance.
This is a great condo and a wonderful place to bring your family for a week of fun!
We will return again next year for our annual fun in the sun and I highly recommend you do the same.
Contact Matthew- I promise you wont be disappointed.

EXCELLENT CONDO

  • 5 of 5
The condo was great. Matthew did all he could to make our stay great. The location is excellent and the finishings in the condo were quite nice.

A couple of things to consider. If you love a soft bed, the King in the bedroom is for you. The bed was extremely soft. My wife loved it.

This condo is next to a public beach access point and the beach in front of this particular condo was not private. As such, there was more traffic on the beach in front of this condo than others we have stayed at in Destin.

Overall we would definitely consider staying in this condo again and recommend it for family travelers.

HORRIFIC

  • 1 of 5
My family and I stayed here recently for Spring Break in 2014.

I'll start with the pros which you'll hear from the past reviewers. The view is amazing as is the beach. Stunning! Matthew was very responsive in answering my questions.

That is where my pros stop. Difficulty paying when renting the unit. I had to call customer service at VRBO to get it worked out.
The unit was fully stocked in terms of dishes which was very nice. What was really weird is that he buys the cheapest toilet paper you can find so we had to buy our own. "BYOTP" unless you want to use generic TP. Also, no laundry detergent or cleaning supplies (we wanted to clean our bathtub) are supplied so, again, bring your own.
The place is decorated nicely.
I could tell some of the bedroom linens were not washed before our arrival so I took all of the covers and washed them immediately (you could actually see dirt on them). Then, the horrific part. After ten minutes of walking around the until barefoot I looked and the soles of my feet were black! The floor was filthy. And, no cleaning supplies so we got to wear flip flops inside the entire vacation! Fun.
Next, I went to put the sheets on the single beds that are located in a hallway. They both absolutely stunk of urine. Not just the sheets but the actual mattresses. My nine year old son had to spend his vacation sleeping in our bed and the couch. More fun.
When it came time to check out, we were packing up when suddenly there was a strange woman standing in our unit! She was the cleaning lady coming to clean the place at 10am! Decided to just use her key to walk right in. The fun continues.
We packed up and got out by 11:30. No more that five hours later, I received four emails from the owner. He decided he was going to charge us $50 for leaving a few dirty dishes in the sink, $25 for a child's handprint that was left on the wall, $75 for a tear in the outdoor furniture and a late check out fee. But, he's going to do us a favor and "split" the costs with us and magically a request for payment is in my in-box. After that, he continued to send me email after email. Not only that, but he has called multiple times and left me messages.
I finally had enough and filed a formal complaint with the VRBO.
You decide if this is a place for you and your friends/family.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that a small $75 cleaning/repair fee resulted in what we would call harsh statements.
After years of renting this is the first time we have had to try and enforce an extra fee. The condo is created to be your home away from home and in our home we repair what is broke or damaged.
We all know that not everyone can be pleased. We take pride and a great deal of thought process into the
cleaning service and extras provided in the
Beach front condo. We have hired one of the top multi
generation cleaning services in all of Destin. We value all input and know your vacation time is priceless. Check out time is 10:00 am CST.

SPRING BREAK 2014

Great decor. Helpful management. Fabulous view. Loved walking back up to condo for lunch and breaks from the sun. Kids could go to beach on their own. Comfortable bedding.

Notes:
We both have traveled to many different beaches but we just kept coming back to Destin!! The location of this condo offers so many advantages. All shopping is North just a bike ride away, Close to Destin Harbor and its restaurants and night life. But still very close to Sandestin and Seaside. Great walking and biking path right outside the front door! Beautiful white sand beach right outside the back door!
