Silver Sands Factory stores, just a few miles away has over 100 designer outlet stores. In fact, Silver Sands is the largest designer outlet mall in America! Just a few of the stores are: Polo Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, Liz Claiborne, Tommy Hilfiger, Coach, Nike, Reebok, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Even closer than Silver Sands is Destin Commons outdoor mall. Some of the stores include Abercrombie & Fitch, Ann Taylor, Belk, Books-A-Million, Maui Nix Surf shop and Bass Pro Shop. For the latest movies there is an AMC Motion Pictures theater.

About Brad Fenn

My family and I have lived in Destin for 15 years and we are originally from Louisiana. Because I live a few miles from this condo, I am here if you need anything during your stay.

Brad Fenn purchased this condo in 2005

Why Brad Fenn chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We bought this condo because we have always loved the Crystal Beach area of Destin. In Crystal Beach, you can get to all the restaurants and shopping via back roads without getting on Hwy 98 and dealing with the traffic.

Awesome condo !

  • 5 of 5

This condo was awesome! It was exactly as the owner described plus more! The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals, more than I have seen in other condos. The little extras such as coffee and creamer samplers and laundry detergent packets for the first night were greatly appreciated. The beach themed decor throughout made the condo very welcoming and inviting and the king size bed was very comfortable. The kids enjoyed the bunk beds in the hallway and the sleeper sofa as well. We always try to stay in the crystal beach area and this condo is in a perfect location. The view from the balcony was awesome and the short walk across the street to the beach was an easy one and not inconvenient at all.

The Owner was very accommodating as we arrived a day early and since the condo was available he sent me a quick invoice and we got an extra night without having to look for another place for one night. I realize this is a long review, however I feel it is well deserved. We will definitely stay here again !

Ideal Getaway condo

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Crystal Beach for an affordable price. The beach is across the street and easy to get to. The place had a view of the pool and beach. The condo was very clean and ideal for a small family or couple. The bed wasn't comfortable so we didn't sleep too well. Bring your own pillow as well as shampoo, detergent and toilet paper! We ran out of what was provided for us. Overall great condo and would stay here again!

Great View

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean and nicely decorated. The view from the balcony is amazing!! There are 6 people in our family and we were very comfortable. We enjoyed being able to ride our bikes to just about anywhere we wanted to go. This was our first time to Destin, we LOVED it! Thanks Brad for all your help.

A wonderful family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for our family spring break vacation! The condo was equipped with everything we needed. Well stocked bathroom and kitchen. The extra added touch of coffee and creamers for the coffeemaker made us feel welcome. We felt safe and secure! Thank you for such a wonderful time. We'd love to return to this condo!!

Yes, I would recommend

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a good stay on short notice for about 40 days in January and February. We sold our home and rented this condo while we looked for a more permanent place to stay along the coast.


- Brad, the owner, was responsive, accessible, and easy to deal with. This is a big plus, especially given that we weren't able to plan ahead very well given the uncertainty of closing date on our home. He contacted us quickly to iron out details with our rentals.

- Obviously location is great, across street from beach, ocean view from the deck.

- Wifi

- Being able to just open the door to the deck and get the beach air and hear the waves.

- Kitchen was fully functional w/ plenty of pots/pans/etc for extended stay. (Perhaps overstocked as cabinets were full not leaving much room for anything else). We cooked quite a bit though, and it worked out well.

- Washer and Dryer in unit is great.

- King Bed gives plenty of room.

Minor Negatives:

- Be aware this is on the third floor, and access is via steps. If you have much "stuff" it can be a little difficult going up and down. We were staying for 40 days, so had a bit more things to carry up and down than normal.

- When we were there, the building on the floors below us, was undergoing repairs, so almost every morning at 8 the hammering would start. I'm unsure how much longer the work is ongoing, but if you like sleeping in you might inquire.

In total, we had a good stay and I would certainly recommend this condo to others. If you're specifically looking for an owner who's responsive we'd give a +1 for dealing with Brad. He was quicker and easier to work with than some of the other places that we were trying to contact. For us, that made a big difference.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay in my condo. The East complex was going though extensive repairs to the balconies but that work is completed.

Great condo next to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This bright and cheery little condo fit my family of 4 nicely with its master bedroom and set of bunk beds. It had everything we needed for a quick weekend away at a great price. Directly across the street from the beach and a short drive to lots of shopping and restaurants. Thanks for a great stay!
