Crystal Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

1BR/1BA condo, ideal for family of 4-5.

This is a beautiful second floor condo overlooking the pool, with a Gulf view, and only steps to the beach! We are located in a quiet, upscale area, very close to all of Destin's great amenities!

Recently renovated, this is a clean and lovely unit.

- Living room has a Queen sleeper sofa, flat screen TV, access to the large balcony which overlooks the pool and offers a partial view of the Gulf.

- Bedroom has a comfortable Queen bed, flat screen TV, direct access to the bathroom.

- Twin bunk beds will make the kids happy.

- Well appointed kitchen with all necessary large and small appliances, and granite countertop.

Table accommodates 4 people, and 2 more chairs at the bar.

This unit has a very spacious balcony overlooking the pool and with gulf view will allow you to spend many unforgettable moments reading, or sipping your coffee while the kids can splash in the pool.


Washer and dryer in the unit!

IMPORTANT: Please E-MAIL OR CALL for availability and rates (calendar is not up-to-date). Other fees may apply. Discounts available during certain periods. Please use Booking Code GCW04.

2 daily DVDs and additional discounts to local businesses are included in the rental price.

Grand Caribbean west is a quiet condo building surrounded by a tropical decor, in the clean, beautiful crystal beach area of Destin. Come enjoy the gorgeous view of the blue water of the gulf.

It has a seasonally heated swimming pool, a hot tub and a barbecue area. Plenty of parking space behind the building with very easy access to the units.

We are very close to the vibrant activities of Destin. Shopping, world-class dining, golf and tennis can all be reached in minutes. The street you have to cross to get to the beach is called scenic highway 98, and for a good reason. It meanders through a picturesque, clean cut, upscale tropical area and is a slow-paced street with many speed-bumps and pedestrian crossings for your safety.

Please understand that, although this unit may sleep up to 6, IT WILL NOT ACCOMMODATE 6 ADULTS!

Welcome to our home!

About Owner / Property Manager

We live in the Midwest, and have a very busy family and professional life. It only took us a few trips to Destin to fall in love with the Emerald Coast. This is the second condo we bought in this area.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

This condo is very close to the beach and offers a nice view. We remodelled and redecorated it to a large extent, to give it the updated yet relaxed feel you expect from your vacation rental, at an affordable price.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing location, close to all of Destin's finest amenities in an area with a clean, upscale, yet quiet feel. Size of the unit is perfect for a family with 2-3 children.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

My family and I are still enjoying our vacation in Destin, but I wanted to take the time to go ahead and leave a review while it's still fresh in my mind.


Nicely furnished, ample kitchen appliances and utensils, ocean views, pool side view, easy and short walk to the beach, perfect location in relation to the rest of Destin, lots of linens and towels provided so you don't have to wash as often, check in with the rental management company was easy and smooth

Cons: the condo had a pet smell upon arrival. Being pregnant, it made me nauseous and we had to air it out. The beds were all very uncomfortable. By the second night, I had gone from the bedroom, to the pull out sofa, to the bottom bunk bed. All are very hard and un-even. My husband jokes that he can sleep anywhere and even he was very upset with the lack of quality in the sleep furnishings. Even though there is a pull out sofa bed, this is a very small condo and I would not recommend for more than 5 people total. 5 adults would not be comfortable. Maybe 2 adults and 2 or 3 kids, max.

We were very happy with the condo in general other than the issues listed above. We love the Crystal Beach area of Destin and choose it as our vacation destination each summer. We will not be returning to this unit because it is too small for our family. I would recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Kim, first of all, thank you for staying at our condo, and for the feedback. Thank you also for being fair and pointing out the many positives this condo has to offer, and its great location. Regarding the concerns you have raised, this is the very first time any of these issues were brought to our attention. We are taking the comfort of our guests very seriously, and I will take this opportunity to assure our future guests that any such concerns will be promptly and professionally addressed by calling the rental management company immediately. I have asked my unit manager to check on the problems you have pointed out. Please allow me to address your concerns the best I can: 1. Pet odor: This is a strictly pet-free and smoke-free unit, per policy of both the Homeowner Association and our Rental Management Company. After cleaning, the unit is inspected, and any unusual odors are addressed and removed. No odor was noticeable on inspection before your arrival. We have checked the condo after your departure, to assure there is no cause for the odor inside the unit. 2. Beds: Again, this is the first time this was reported. We are in the process of replacing the mattresses in our condos, so we will do this condo immediately. 3. Condo size: This is a 655 sqf 1BD/1BA condo. This is an average size for a 1 bedroom unit in that area. The size and layout are clearly stated in the description on the vrbo site, and the pictures are accurate. I have specifically pointed out on the web page, that this condo is ideal for a family with 2-3 children, and that it will not accommodate 6 adults. This being said, guests are to decide for themselves, before booking, how many people will share the condo, and if they feel comfortable with the space. Your party has checked in 2 adults and 2 children, so, by the standards you mentioned in your review, I hope that the space was eventually adequate for you. Again, thanks for the review. Adrian

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here for Christmas. We loved this condo, which appears to be a notch above your typical beach rental, as far as finishings and comfort goes. Bed and seating was very comfortable. Kitchen is updated and we had all the utensils we needed. There is a short walk to the beach across a street that was not busy at this time. We walked daily on the beach, weather permitting. It is very close to restaurants and to the mall. Check in process was easy. Highly recommended.

Great Condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed (2 adults and 2 kids) in this unit over spring break. It is in a great location and 3 minute walk to the beach. The condo was very clean and appealing. It is on the 2nd level and the balcony overlooks the pool area. You can walk to the Destin Commons. Would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Kimberly, thank you very much for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We actually bought this condo specifically for the great location and for the nice and clean surroundings, as well as its proximity to the beach. I hope you felt at home, and hope to see you back soon! Adrian
