Wonderful woops

  • 5 of 5

We actually ended up staying here by accident due to our reservations falling through in Panama City. We needed a last second rental and found this listing. We were in a pinch and called the managers to reserve the room. They were easy to reach, answered all of our questions and got our reservations though in a couple of moments, which is more than I can say for some otber managers on VRBO. We thought that the listing was too good to be true, but it wasn't. When we arrived at the condo, it was just as promised. We had a little dog and three seniors with disabilities in tow and they had no problems navigating the rooms. The condo had ample room for for everyone with beds to spare. The rooms were wonderful with comfortable beds and nice restrooms for each. The view from the covered porch was amazing, beckoning us down to the sugary, white sanded beaches with the tranquil, turquoise waves calmly rolling in. The beach was heavenly, except for the occasional jellyfish. While we were in town we partook of the nearby shops and restaurants, Pompano Joe's was nice, a little pricey but the serving portions more than made up for that. We took in the nearby free armed forces museums and airshows in Pensacola and Fort Walton which were free and great for the family. We also caught a dolphin tour and a parasailing trip in town that were excellent. Down the road in Panama City we went to a zoo and hung out at Wonderworks both of which were awesome for all ages. Overall the Destin area is centrally located on the Emarald Coast and the place to go if you want enjoy yourself. And thanks to the wonderful staff, great location and assortment of things to do this condo is a wonderful place to come home and relax or play in the sand. We will definitely look to come back and stay again.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family's summer vacation. Crystal View is a small complex so there was good parking and it was not crowded like high rise condos are. It was a very short walk to the beach and the pool was never crowded. It felt like our own personal pool. The condo was roomy and well stocked. We will definitely consider this condo again for future vacations.

Great multi family condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our summer vacation with another family. Wonderful place. The location was perfect. We walked to Pompano Joes twice. And the beach is literally 2 min walk. So much better than stayi g in a big high rise. Loved being on the first floor and the patio was wonderful. We spend every single night on it. We loved it and will definitely be back again!!

Our family had a wonderful week at this condo. The beds were very comfortable and everything was exactly as shown in the photos. Kitchen was nicely equipped. It is located directly across from the beach and includes two beach chairs and an umbrella. Within walking distance to Pompano Joe's restaurant. You can't go wrong staying at this beautiful property!

Outstanding Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Destin. It is everything that we had hoped it would be. This Condo was exactly how it was indicated on the description. It was beautifully decorated, had a partial view of the beach/ocean and perfect for our two families with daughters 10-15 years old. We will definitely be returning to Destin and hopefully this Condo.

Excellent Location/Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Destin on vacation. The location of the condo is perfect with a great partial ocean view and very short walk across the street to the private beach. The condo was clean and decorated beautifully and provided all of the comforts of home. We would highly recommend this condo not only for the value and beauty but the overall location in general. You are actually located in Mirimar Beach, which is convenient to The Village at Baytowne Wharf, Silver Sands Outlet Mall and the Grand Boulevard shopping/dining complex with an incredible movie theater. We did travel down to the harbor area in Destin for dinner one night. This area does provide an abundance of dining and entertainment, however it is very commercial. There is great beachfront dining located a few blocks down, which is nice to not have to drive out. All in all, the vacation was great and what we all were looking for. We will definitely be going back.
