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

1st visit to Destin – 1st time using VRBO – SUCCESS!

  • 5 of 5

This condo and location was perfect for our first trip to Destin! Our family of 6 adults and 3 children fit perfectly. The beach chair / umbrella service was an added plus! Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the grocery store and shops are very convenient to get to. Very clean and well kept unit. The kids slept on the pull out couch and the oversized chair in the living room. I am going to miss my coffee on the deck and this great view!

What a wonderful time we had on vacation.

  • 4 of 5

We were so pleased with the condo. It looked just like the pictures and everything was so comfortable and clean, fresh smelling.

We have stayed at Crystal Sands many times because of the convenience of the location. All in all it was a great week and I'd go back to same condo without hesitation!

Beautiful, Perfection, Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

After checking available dates, all the pictures of unit 308A were very alluring to me and I knew this was the right choice. The unit was exactly as the pictures and descriptions stated. It had a grand mariner decor, very classic. It set the mood for an ocean/beach vacation the second you open the door. It definitely was an A+ Platinum rated unit and you will not be disappointed in anything. It was all extremely clean and well kept, everything is there to make your vacation unforgettable. So much space in the third floor units. 308A has a superior balcony that is tiled, table and chairs, and a chaise lounge to rest after your busy days, but still enjoy the beauty of the beach. Matt the owner was very easy to communicate with, and quick with all answered questions. He is a family man and cared that our family had a great vacation like his family does. I have stayed at Crystal Sands before, this is by far our favorite unit. 308A I so hope to see you again the next time I am blessed to come to Florida.

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!
