About Donna Daniel

We purchased this beautiful condo in Nov, 2006. It has a great view of the Beach, but we immediately remodeled it with new kitchen cabinets, granite counter, new stainless appliances, new tile and carpet, crown molding, new light fixtures and faucets and new sinks in the baths! We also updated the bedding and custon drapes for the living room. The condo is not decorated in your typical 'beach' theme which folks tell me they are very tired of. I have a great cleaning person and a great maintenance person! Jerry and I are retired but I manage my 3 condos in Destin and some local properties as well. We keep busy! We have one daughter and Son in Law, Jennifer and Henry, and 3 grand kids and one step grand kid (Haylea is 14, Jack is 7, Baby Henry is a few days old and Katie is 14)

Adult Fall Break 2015

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Destin a number of times but these were by far the nicest accommodations that we have ever had. The condo was just as it appears on the web site. It was beautiful and fully equipped. The location is absolutely perfect! Several friends were also in Destin at this time and none of their condos compared to yours. We had a wonderful time and the weather was perfect. We enjoyed going to the local restaurants and tried out several new ones. We arrived at the tail end of the schools' fall break and the crowds were way down. We were able to enjoy the beaches, restaurants, stores, etc. without fighting the crowds. I would recommend that visitors try Lulu's at the bay, Pompano Joe's and Surf Hut. Great good and you can't beat the atmosphere! Can't wait to go back.

SO Beautiful! So much more than expected!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Destin Area. Our stay was wonderful and wished we could have stayed longer. Had no issues with the condo. Was very clean and comfortable. Love being able to step out on the balcony and listen to the ocean. Being able to walk out straight onto the beach and know there would be chairs. We came during Spring Break and did not have college age kids making trouble on the beach. The ones that were there were very respectable of our area. he condo was located perfectly to enjoy Destin and all the activities it has to offer. Would plan to stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you for making my Daughters Senior Spring Break so Great! :)

A nice place with a great view

  • 5 of 5

When we go some place to stay, I always worry if the A/C is going to be cool enough. My wife and I arrived in the heat of the day and the A/C froze us out. We had to turn it down as it was freezing in the condo. The condo itself was very nice. Nice furniture, clean, and roomy. The no pets, no smoking rule also makes the stay enjoyable. The beach, which was right off the balcony, is clean, and well kept by the groundsmen. It was great having that close of access from the balcony, as my wife has a sensitivity to the sun. We could sit there without missing out on the beach experience, and still miss out on the direct sun light that my wife is so sensitive to. We stayed for 6 very restful days. Another thing we enjoyed was the fact that the condo is directly over the walk way which gives the condo access to the beach. This way we could move around the condo at anytime we wanted, and not disturb anyone below us. We enjoyed our time in Destin and at the condo and will be back soon. Thank you.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean and well stocked. Being a smaller condo complex, the walk to and from the beach, cars, etc was very minimal and the view was absolutely gorgeous!! Donna was very friendly and attentive, answering all of our questions and responding to my inquiries in a timely manner.

We had a great experience. Crystal Sands is a great location. The overall property was well maintained and the close proximity to the beach couldn't have been better. This unit was just as advertised. It was very well decorated and in excellent condition. The beach and beach service was great. The email I received contained all the information needed. Great choice. I plan to stay again.
