A vacation should not become a job in itself. When we were searching for a place to own, the following were our requirements & that is what we found in this condominium at the inn at crystal beach. The condominium is first of all, one of the most luxurious units you will find & the following are what makes this one very special. When you arrive you drive to the parking garage and unload with carts .
With unit 103A you never have to enter the elevator, because the condominium is on the ground floor. Security is very high. This condominium can be for 2 to 6 people or lease the other side & you can accommodate 12 people. Both sides have kitchens, 2 baths, living areas, and patios.
The beach is so close that you can sit on the patio and see your family. The bar and the restaurant are next door and it is great to just walk out your back door and have a drink or a five star meal, and the Sunday brunch is as good as you will find anywhere. The private beach and pool side experience is the best because the umbrellas and chairs are placed on the beach each day for the guest and the staff will bring you a drink or food. There is a beach attendant that will make sure items are safe and the general public is not allowed on this part of the beach.
This unit is located on the 1st floor and still has a gulf front view. The perks of this unit is park in the parking garage and then go right to the unit, no elevators.. Then you can go out the sliding door across the open deck down the board walk and be right on the beach, if you forget something or need something again NO waiting for an elevator.
The condo was well maintained, clean, and attractive. The kitchen was well stocked with beautiful dishes. Owner was great to work with. Any need we had was immediately taken care of when we called the front desk. All of the employees were very friendly! Crystal beach is an outstanding beach, and not too crowded. The pool and hot tub were always clean. The restaurant in the building had good food and it was so convenient to walk outside our patio and sit down to eat. Also when I ran out of diet coke in the condo I walked a few steps to the restaurant late one night to get one, which was nice. The only negative was a bad odor in the hallway walking from the garage to the condo, and the restaurant crowd was a little loud late one night outside our patio. Overall this was a great place to stay and I would certainly stay here again.
We were looking for a new place to stay for our annual girls trip, when we stumbled across this condo in the Crystal Beach area. We decided to give it a try, and are so glad we did. The condo is decorated beautifully, the pictures don't do it justice. Lots of room, clean, updated, and huge master bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool tub areas. We enjoyed sitting on the patio watching the waves and drinking coffee in the morning. When it was time to go to the beach, we simply opened the gate and walked down the boardwalk to our complimentary beach setup. There are tables set up right outside the patio area for the restaurant in the building, but there were only people there at lunchtime and in the evening to eat, no late night partiers or loud music. We will definitely be back!
