Crystal Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located on Scenic Highway 98 in the beautiful Crystal Beach community, just across the street from the sugar white sand and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this seaside community is a wonderful retreat.

Our recently remodeled condominium is on the first floor with a spectacular view of the Gulf. From the patio you can look out at the gorgeous emerald water. The pool, whirlpool and barbecue area are just steps away. Beach access is right across the street.

The large master bedroom, with 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.

This winter a new kitchen was put in with Granite counter tops, stanless steel appliances, new cabinets, and many other amenties.

Nice property, untrusted and rude owner

  • 1 of 5

I stayed with my family at the given property between 6-8 of October.

The instructions we had prior arrival to the property included the details on how to use the keypad lock and the backup box. It didn't include any instructions about the deadbolt lock though.

On 7th October we went out of the apartment from the back door (it's on the ground floor) and left the deadbolt locked, as I knew the backup box contains the key to unlock the front door. The keys didn't match the deadbolt lock nor the backdoor. Hence, we got stuck out of the house.

I called Susan (the landlord) and asked for her assistance. She said she's not there, but advised to call a lock picker and said that if it's my mistake - i'll pay for it, otherwise she'll reimburse me. After the lock picker opened the door, we called Susan and he explained that the keys didn't match. Susan and I spoke a few minutes later and she said she's going to reimburse me for the fee I paid - $70.

After a while I asked why she didn't reimburse me and she ignored my messages. In the second attempt she said she's going to reimburse me at the end of the month, but again, she didn't reimburse me.

Additionally, her language was extremely unpleasant (getting into her expense calculations and blaming me).

Bottom line - I would recommend to be careful of the people you make business with. If I had the chance to read such review before I rented the property, I would run away from this deal.

Owner's Response: I have managed property in Destin for over 20 years. This is my first negative review. I stated that I would pay for the locksmith if the issue were my fault, that I pay at the end of the month etc. I have a push button lock on the front door, with back up keys for that lock if it should fail. Which it did not. I have keys for the sliding glass door, he did not take those with him when he left. He locked the dead bolt and didn't take the keys provided. I do not see how this is my fault. He proceeded to text, call, email and threaten me to get me to reimburse him. I am a fair person but I will not be taken advantage of and pay for something out of fear of a negative review. I do not appreciate being harassed. I welcome all guests and go out of my way to accommodate everyone. My condo is in a great location, very clean, updated and has many upgrades. I am sorry he felt the need to try and hurt my owners income by posting this negative review. I sincerely appreciate all of my guests and have some that have rented from me year after year. Thanks Susan

Beyond my expectations. Definitely a bargain!

  • 5 of 5

I was plesantly surprised at the level of quality the home chose to use. Well stocked kitchen. High end towels, sheets, blankets. Felt like home instead of a condo furnished for renters. The beach access was about 100 yards from the lanai; very convenient. Coffe shop and restaurant within walking distance. Definitely a greater value for the money than expexted. I recommend it, and will use it again.

Great Location, exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo, with everything we needed for my wife and I with our 5 year old. Across the street from the gulf and only a half block from beach access. We loved the heated pool. Shopping and restaurants were within walking distance. Fairly quite area as well, without too traffic.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (Plus our 3 little ones) rented this condo in early August! It is beautiful! All the appliances are newer. The beds are comfortable and the condo it very clean. I would say it is very kid friendly except for the table. The table is very high and I was nervous each time one of my kids sat at it. I would recommend bringing a folding kids table if you have little ones.

The condo is walking distance from the beach and right next to a cute little restaurant called Camille's.

The only thing I would recommend is a hook for towels on the patio. Thanks for the great week!

Relaxation Station!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely fantastic. It has everything you need and is steps to the beach. It is very clean and well maintained. You can see the ocean from the porch and is great in the morning to sit and drink a cup of coffee. We packed our wagon each day and walked to the beach at the public access with a bathroom and showers. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to next year. The owners are helpful and quick to respond. If you get to stay here, you are lucky! Thanks for a wonderful vacation.
