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 loved your condo. The view, decor, and ease of parking truly made our visit great! Thanks again!

Perfect Bungalow on the beach...

  • 4 of 5

To be able to sit and drink a cup of coffee or glass of wine while looking at the ocean is a great perk. Within in feet of having your toes in the sand. The condo is clean, and has everything you need. Nicely decorated. Perfect. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. Could not agree more on the perks of being right on the beach. Being able to pour a cup in the AM or glass in the PM, walk right out on the balcony and enjoy the view is the best. We look forward to having you back anytime and appreciate your staying with us.

This was a PERFECT SPOT!!!!

  • 4 of 5

This was the most enjoyable and relaxing spot we could of found for our weekend escape for our 10 year anniversary of our marriage!!! The condo was clean and very cozy. Couldn't ask for a better view of the ocean or beach. The condo is clean and as described in the ad. Would be more than happy to suggest this to friends and family. Will look to book this unit again in the future.

Make sure they reference you and I will be glad to pass on "family and friends" discount. Same for you on your next trip, just let us know when you can get back to Destin soon. Thanks for the review!

Amazing view and perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views! We watched dolphins in the morning and even saw a sea turtle our last day on the sand. Condo was very clean and nicely decorated and newly remodeled.

Within 2 miles to Walmart, lots of restaurants, trinket stores, and a mall.

Staff was friendly and accommodating. The chair setup on the beach was always done before 8am. Chairs and umbrella were great and comfortable.

You are less than a minute to the water and maybe 20 seconds to the sand!!!

We already said when we go back we will most definitely be coming back to this unit! Very pleased and recommend to anyone as you won't be disappointed.
