Crystal Beach 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❤️

The photos do not do this place justice. As soon as we walked in, we were blown away with the view. It is absolutely breathtaking! We enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the balcony each morning. We enjoyed winding down enjoying the view each night. Very nice, clean accommodations. We have already discussed booking this place again next year!

Good condo for middle price range

  • 4 of 5

Owners were wonderful to work with. Condo was clean and conveniently located to beach. Good beach view. Only suggestions would be to have keyless entry like the others in the unit (saves having to go to office to get and drop off) and starter pack of paper towels are usually provided.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the suggestions. As you've suggested, we were able to have the cleaning crew leave paper towels in the condo. We'll check with our management company to see if they can implement the keyless lock system.

Homey and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly how it's describe: beachfront, beautiful ocean views from the living room. The property was clean and well maintained. The bed in the master bedroom is comfortable and the kitchen has everything needed to prepare meals. The only thing I had a complain about was the non-stick pans. They're pretty worn out and everything we cooked got stuck and burned.

I liked that the elevator was right in front of the condo, we didn't have to walk down the hall to go down to the beach.

Overall, our stay was pleasant and had a great time. I would definitely stay here again.

Thanks for letting our family enjoy your condo!

Very relaxing stay!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice, comfortable, and clean (except someone else's idea of "cleaning" a bathroom did not match mine, but oh well..). I have a bad back, but the mattress in the bedroom didn't seem to hurt it much, although it's on the soft side. I was relatively comfortable the whole week. I played white noise overnight on my iPad and we didn't hear a thing even with the elevator just outside - which turned out to be a convenience. We had some very relaxing days on the beach and comfortable nights in the condo. Can't get enough of that VIEW and that CRYSTAL CLEAR water!!! My only complaint has nothing to do with the condo or the owner. You never know who your neighbors will be - in the condo or sitting in the beach chairs. I detest cigarette smoke - I'm very sensitive to it. It seemed like I couldn't escape it the week we were there - not even on the balcony. And our upstairs neighbors were that proverbial herd of elephants stampeding down the hallway when you least wanted them to. It sure would be nice to live in a society where people were more considerate - but I guess that's just wishful thinking. Condo was great, though, and if you can stand the neighbors you get, I'd highly recommend it! Very close to lots of shopping, restaurants, and night life. Overall, I'd brave the neighbors and stay here again!

Comfortable home like stay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, felt like home. All appliances worked and were clean. I liked the extra pillows and blankets, books around. This is 4th time we have stayed on this beach, great view, short walk and love that Crystal Sands includes beach chair service. We aren't smokers and is only drawback of people on different unit might be. Not a long drive into town to gather supplies (I need to make a list of what to bring, I forgot a few things!) I would recommend staying here.
