Why Matthew chose Crystal Sands

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.

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....

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!

first time renting condo

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! Condo was very clean and welcoming, kitchen fully stocked with all you need to cook also provided were cards, some games, books and some movies. The view was amazing and you can hear the waves crashing when in the living room, even with just one of the sliding glass doors slightly open. Every morning we saw two dolphins swimming close to shore. We did get a chance to see the inside of a couple of other condos, this was the nicest, beach decor but not overdone, very nice even from the outside. The only complaint is that the internet service never worked great. Overall we loved it and if we ever go back to Destin we will definitely call Matthew.

Getaway to Destin FL

  • 5 of 5

Being this was our first time renting a condo, Matt, the owner, was very good at communicating the details and was easy to reach. He went exceeded our expectations by recommending a few places to visit and try during our stay.

When we arrived everything was very clean and bright. We noticed the view right away and it was spectacular. Beach access was literally only a few steps away. The condo's layout was very nice and accessible. The bed was very comfortable and kitchen had all the things to make meals. It was also nice to have an on-site washer and dryer.

All in all, a very comfortable stay. Again, the views were worth the money alone. Everything else was icing on the cake. Thank you again Matt for having a great place to stay. We will definitely look you up again next time we head back to Destin.

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.

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!
