2 Bedroom 2 Bath With Gorgeous Gulf View Steps From The Beach
About Becky Beran
We live in a suburb of Atlanta GA and are only the second owners of this unit since the complex was built. We began visiting Destin 25 years ago, we knew this was the place we would make great memories with our children and now their children.
Becky Beran purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Becky Beran chose Crystal Beach
Caribbean Dunes is an intimate and well kept condominium complex in the wonderful Crystal Beach neighborhood. The low rise structure does not have the inconveniences of elevators and other issues that exist in a high rise condo. With a wonderful pool and hot tub, easy access to the beach and nearby shopping, the location is ideal and so convenient to the many activity choices.
What makes this Condo unique
The condo is located in a quaint beach neighborhood with wonderful shopping, dining and amenities nearby. Centrally located between Destin Harbor and Sandestin Baytowne Wharf so both areas can be enjoyed in just minutes. Wonderful walking and bike paths along the beach front. The builder upgrades of the pine flooring, tiled counter tops gives this unit a 'comfy' yet very beachy feel.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Perfect for our family of 3
This was a great location for not being in the center of town but still very close to all the good restaurants and the beach. It was a 3 min walk to the beach and a 4 min walk to the cutest little bistro that had breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The condo was super comfortable and quiet, which was perfect because we needed the rest! Everything was super clean and well kept and we really enjoyed our time at the condo. My daughter has already said that we have to go back soon and stay in the exact same place because she loved it so much. :)
One thing I wish I knew was that the bigger beach front condos take up space on the beach with their private beach areas and private chairs/umbrellas. This isn't something that is done on many Texas beaches so I wasn't expecting it. We found a good spot eventually, but just a heads up.
Property was wonderful..
Plenty of room and good location .,
Only thing I would change is master bed s little stiff
Close but no view, very little access
The condo itself was clean, nicely decorated and furnished. There was ocean view if you stood at the right angle and could see between the trees, other wise the entire view was the huge gated resort across the street. The dryer is very noisy. We were extremely unhappy with how little access there is to the beach. In order to be remotely close to the beach you have to walk a block to Crystal Beach, then once there, there is limited space to set up for the day because the beach front condos have everything blocked off on both sides with their umbrellas and chairs. The ‘public’ is not allowed on either side. Same thing with the Shirah street beach access only it’s a smaller area. And to make it worse there is about6-8 parking spots at crystal beach so you have to carry everything, chairs, coolers, canopy, beach bag etc. the water is beautiful but it’s EXTREMELY CROWDED. It was just too work. Traffic is a nightmare to go anywhere. Most places usually have waiting lists of an hour once you finally manage to get there. Not a relaxing beach vacation at all. We seriously considered leaving a couple days early because of the crowds and traffic. Destin was not for us. It was our first and last time there.
Perfect location and lovely home!
This condo is in a great location, right across from the beach, and just far enough away from the big crowds. The condo was clean and had everything we needed for our week in Destin. We would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful condo! Great location to beach
Condo is decorated beautifully. Great location from beach, just cross the small street. Porch has ocean view. Pleased with stay and would rent condo in future.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We enjoyed having you and your family back again this year and hope to have you again next year!
Sincerely, Tim & Becky
We have been staying at Carribean Dunes since 2003 and this was by far the best condo we have stayed in. When booking, if I had any questions, Becky was quick to respond and very friendly. We will be back!
Thank you for sharing your experience! We are thrilled that our condo is your favorite in Caribbean Dunes! Your satisfaction is a great source of motivation for us to keep up the high standards!
Sincerely, Tim and Becky
