Emerald Coast-Destin Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

YOU KNOW YOU DESERVE IT - STAY ON THE BEACH. Look out on the beautiful sun, surf and sand, not some parking lot or street. Listen to the waves, not the passing traffic. Escape to the White Sands of Destin Florida!! 2 Flat Panel TV's recently installed

Free Wireless Internet and Free Beach Service (in Season) are Included with all rentals.

Have breakfast on the patio with only the sugar white sand between you and the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Sun and stroll on the beach or grab a Wave Runner and see how high you can fly. There are also those who would prefer to simply take a relaxing dip in the pool or visit one of the near-by restaurants, family attractions or golf courses. Don't forget a trip to the Silver Sands outlet mall! (We always find some great bargins)

Our Condo is in the CRYSTAL SANDS complex, located away from the congestion of down-town Destin, yet only minutes from all the day and evening attractions.

Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect for my family - myself, my husband and my two teenage children. Breathtaking view, from the balcony overlooking the ocean and white sands. No crossing any roads to get to the beach. The beach was busy but NOT crazy crowded like it was when you walked down the beach further. The condo is only 3 levels so you don't have long waits at the elevator and tons of other people everywhere-I do not like the tall 20 story buildings just not for me. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere of Crystal Sands is very family-oriented. We stayed over spring break and did not experience all the college kids around us like we did when we stayed in Panama city. The condo itself was tastefully decorated with a beach theme which I loved, and was very clean! The bed was huge and there were two bunks for the kids. Even though the kids did not have their own room there was PLENTY of storage for everyone's clothes. We had a bath and a half, which was a big help when someone was in the shower but another person needed to use the bathroom so another big plus! Washer and dryer inside the unit - used it daily! Nicely stocked kitchen and lots and lots of bath towels! Close to everything- lots to do but we mainly just hung at the beach and relaxed. This condo was also one of the best priced ones that I found on the net.....which was one of the main reasons why I chose this one - because it had all the amenities we needed without breaking the bank for us. , It definitely did not disappoint!!! I would recommend to anyone and would go back here in a heartbeat❤️

Very very nice.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo. It is perfect for two or four people. The larger property is well kept up and clean. We loved being on the 2nd floor as we could have coffee on our balcony and it felt more private than a ground floor. I would return here in a minute. We enjoy being close to Destin but not right in town. Captain Daves is the best restaurant for dinner and you can walk to the Crab Trap for lunch. We loved everything's!

Wonderful vacation in Destin

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The location is perfect, and the view from the deck spectacular. The living room was very comfortable and the kitchen was a nice size and well stocked. The complimentary beach service was awesome, and just hanging out on the beach under an umbrella was very nice. Our only complaint was the noise. The bedroom window is right across from the elevator, and the neighbors upstairs stomped around like a herd of buffalo until the wee hours. But waking up and taking a long quiet walk on the beach, and finishing the day with the same, made it all worth it.

Overall everything was good with a few reservations.

Very nice clean condo. The mattress gave us back and neck problems all week and I slept on the couch actually. We have always been used to having the first mornings coffee available to us until we can get to a store. No hair dryer which is normally furnished, no paper towels or tissues. Nice place but would not stay there again. Dan and Connee Dutton

Owner's Response: The mattress and box spring were purchased less than a year ago and we've received a number of compliments on the bedding. Addressing the other items mentioned, this person’s expectations do not match Destin area norms. We're not aware of any Destin area condos that provide the first morning's coffee, paper towels and facial tissues. Please read some of the other reviews of our family’s condo.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time at Crystal Sands. The location cannot be beat. The view of the ocean and ease of beach access is wonderful. We used the beach chairs every day (another great perk!) and we watched dolphins swim past from the balcony in the mornings. I was visiting with my 12 and 15 year old kids. They used the bunk beds and we took advantage of the kitchen (using the nearby Publix and Fresh Market). The one day I had to work, I easily accessed the wi-fi and took a videoconference call. The pool is a bit small, and often in the shade - that might have been an issue when the children were younger, but it didn't bother us. Overall, we enjoyed our Spring Break and would recommend the unit!

We thoroughly enjoyed the nicely furnished condo, especially with the included beach chair service!! From the balcony there is nothing between you and the sand. Love the sound of waves!!
