About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Located in the beautiful Crystal Beach community, just across the street from the sugar white sands and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If you have not been to Destin, then you are in for a treat. The water is crystal clear with a breathtaking emerald color.

Our well maintained condominium is on the first floor with a partial view of the Gulf. Whether in the living room or on the patio you can look out at the gorgeous emerald water. The pool, whirlpool and barbecue area are just steps away from our door. Beach access is right across the street.

The large master bedroom, with new queen size bed, has a separate entry into the spacious bathroom, which has a Jacuzzi tub. The kitchen is bright, roomy and fully equipped. Bunk beds are built into the hall and a sleeper sofa is included to accommodate additional guests. Also included in the unit for your convenience is a washer and dryer and internet access, all with free, unlimited use.

But don't take our word for it, see the guest comments link below. There you will find why our guests return every year to vacation with us. Our Caribbean Dunes condominium is our family vacation home. You deal with us, the owners, not a management company. We are the longest serving 'by owner' vacation rental in Caribbean Dunes, since 2002.

About Devon

Married in 1984, owning a condo at the beach has been our dream since the honeymoon. Now this condo has become our family retreat. Our children and grandchildren will always have their memories of the McCorkle family beach vacations. Since we began renting our condo out in 2002 we have truly been blessed with great customers. Most of our renters are repeat guests who treat our unit as their family retreat.

Devon purchased this condo in 2002

Why Devon chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We chose Destin because of the beautiful beaches and the wholesome, family atmosphere. This is a wonderful place and a great environment to take children and granchildren.

What makes this condo unique

With the pool 60 feet from our door and the beach 100 yards away, it is easy to relax. A full kitchen makes it easy to eat in and the laundry in the condo means you can pack light. We also have unlimited wireless internet, which is great so you can check e-mails while enjoying coffee on the porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful experience!!!! We loved #109

across the street from the beach. The condo was

very clean, comfy, and cozy! The kids LOVED the

bunk beds, the beach and the lizards on the patio.

We loved the private beach access, the A/C in the

condo, the tile floors, and all the amenities within

walking distance. Thank you so much for all the

little extras you do to make your second home feel

like our second home!!!!

Quiet Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was nice and clean upon arrival. The area was quiet with little to no traffic on the road in front of the condo (October). The pool/spa was nice and clean with hardly anyone else around during usage. Access to the beach was easy and not an issue (even with a 4 year old child). The beach wasn't crowded and there was always a spot to put your chairs/towels down. The water was clearish blue and the waves were constant. The main road, Emerald Hwy, was a beast almost everyday even during October, but manageable. The food was nice in the area, Fudpuckers was a neat place to visit. Adults and kids alike can enjoy looking/feeding live gators. Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is a great place to eat for fans of the movie...a little pricey, but that's to be expected in a tourism area. Overall, nice quiet vacation with no issues.

Nice small family getaway in Destin

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just returned from a wonderfully relaxing week long stay in Destin at this condo. The process of renting the condo was easy and the communication was prompt.

The condo was a short walk from the beach. But be aware that if you use the closest public access, you need to be there early in the am to get a close to the water spot. There is only a small space that is available due to the other hotels having the beach reserved for their guests only. If you go down to the next public access, however, we had no difficulty finding a nice uncrowded spot.

My daughter thouroughly enjoyed the use of the pool and it was a short walk. It appeared clean and well taken care of.

The condo was everything described and was well equipped. There were even some extra beach things that we used (like a boogie board). The only thing we would suggest to improve the comfort of the rental would be to have more comfortable outdoor furniture and maybe a small table to be able to enjoy the small patio out the back door. We didn't get much use from that space.

But, otherwise, we would definitely recommend the use of this rental for a small family. It was just enough room for us and the customer service was wonderful.

Destin is a beautiful place with nice people and I'm sure we will return next year.

It was everything it said it was.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Destin. The condo was everything they said it was. It was a very short walk to the beach, very clean, and updated. The owners were very easy to work with and we plan on going back next summer!
