Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin is our favorite along the Gulf Coast. After living in Destin, we discovered first hand that the Crystal Beach area is the absolute best location in Destin! Crystal Sands is an outstanding Gulf Front condominium in Crystal Beach. Secluded and private, yet centrally located to all that Destin has to offer. This will be your favorite Destin getaway for years!

What makes this condo unique

This 1st floor location is perfect! Parking right out front, pool just outside front door, and best of all, right on the beach. Super convenient access to the beach/gulf makes lugging the beach toys a breeze.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We once again had a fabulous time staying at the beach! Weather was perfect and condo couldn't have been better. Thanks again for opening your home for us to enjoy! We will be back soon!

Crystal Sands Unit 108B was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Crystal Sands is a 3 story building with an amazing view of the beach. Drive right up to your front door and enter the condo with a patio which overlooks the beach. Unit 108B is a first floor unit and only steps away from the walkway entrance to your free chair setup. When you have enough of the sand you can sit on your patio and see and hear the waves like you are still on the beach. That's how close you are. Exactly what I was looking for. Unit was very clean and updated. Although it is a one bedroom it can easily sleep 6. King in bedroom, bunks in hallway and a sleeper sofa. 2 baths, one tub (jack and Jill style bath.) I will definitely return.

What a lovely place to spend vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect! Location, view, surroundings and, of course, the beach! The unit is well appointed and comfortable. The view from the inside while enjoying breakfast is only enhanced when you step thru the glass doors! The kitchen is well equipped, the bed is king sized and comfortable. We enjoyed every minute and will return!

The owner was very nice and easy to work with when we booked the location. From the moment we set foot on the property, we had a great experience. It was a great location. We were a couple of steps to the beach and a 5-10 minute drive to shopping and restaurants. The staff on site were very helpful. We will definitely book here again.
