About Matthew

Our beach get away has been perfect for our family. My wife and I have been married for 20 years and have been to Crystal Sands every year. We have two children and have had plenty of room.

Matthew purchased this condo in 2014

Why Matthew chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Location Location Location! You stay here once and you will know why this property is so popular. If you like the beach you feel you have struck it rich. Closest to the ocean you can get. Easily walk down with your coffee or back up for lunch, bathroom etc. This third floor unit makes your vacation one you won't forget.

What makes this condo unique

It's like this : You know you are in love with the Emerald coast the 1st morning you wake up and sip your coffee on your balcony and decide if you are going to stroll the beach, swim in the pool, go shopping, play golf, go fishing, parasailing, play volley ball on the beach, etc....??Discover what Destin has to offer....??15 min walk to Beach Walk Cafe 850-650-7100?15 min walk....

Guestbook comments from the owner

We Had a wonderful stay at A308. The unit was decorated very nice. The beds where very comfortable. This unit is perfect location to elevators etc Hardly no walking at all ! The patio has also been redone can't wait to go back. This was the nicest unit we have ever stayed in at Destin on the Beach. All the furniture was even brand new Stephanie

Great condo! Great owner!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at the condo. The beach was beautiful and the included chair service is a huge plus. The property is in a great location that is very close to several restaurants and located conveniently close to Destin and not far from the 30A area as well. Dealing with the owner was the easiest experience with an owner I have ever had on this site. He called me within minutes of booking and was very responsive and accommodating. Thank you so much for a great week!

Great condo and AMAZING beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo with our two young daughters and another couple and their young son. It was perfect for us, and I absolutely loved that it was right on the beach. Crystal beach is the nicest beach I have ever been to, with the sugar white sand, and shallow water. Everything in the condo was ready for us on arrival, and it was very clean, and nicely decorated. We spent a lot of time hanging out on the balcony overlooking the gulf, and of course lots of time at the beach. Matthew the owner was extremely nice, and easy to work with. I can't wait to get back!

We just returned home from a week's stay at this property. We found the condo to be just as we saw in the photos and video. It was just what the doctor ordered for my wife and I and our four children. The unit was nicely decorated and very comfortable with all the amenities we needed. We spent our days on the beautiful white sand beach and our evenings dining at one of the many choices in the area ( Lulu's, Tailfins, McGuires, Fudpucker's, Crab Trap all very good). We are looking forward to our return visit and that amazing view from the balcony. You will find the property owner is a very friendly guy who is easy to deal with. Now please pass the aloe for this sunburn.

Beautiful condo with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My entire family stayed in this unit the entire week and loved every minute of it. We had three adults and two children and had no issues with space. The Location Is PERFECT, Close To restaurants, shopping, etc. We loved the daily chair and umbrella service on the beach as well. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything but the food, the linens were plentiful, and the washer and dryer in the unit was an added plus. The only down side while we were there was the fridge keep leaking water inside on the shelves and into the bottom under the drawers but the owner was quick to send the repair man out but he was unable to find the leak/fix it so we were constantly having to dry up the water. Other than that our trip was absolutely wonderful!

Family trip

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo for a family trip to Destin. We found the unit was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The unit looks exactly like the photos posted. The view of the ocean is outstanding. While enjoying morning coffee on the balcony we had the pleasure of seeing a couple of Dolphins playing in the ocean. We love the beaches in Destin and we'll definitely be back. Normally we rent a large beach house but should the need arise I would rent this unit again.
