We have many repeat guests - read on for what some of them have to say:

'We had the BEST time during our stay at this wonderful condo! Everything about it was perfect - location, view, beach, pool. We will definitely be back!!'

'The weather was perfect, the condo was beautiful and the water was as clear as I have ever seen it. My family and I just spent a week in Destin in the 3 bedroom condo. We had plenty of room and really enjoyed all of the 'extras' that were added to make the condo feel like home. T.V.'s in every room was a nice touch. Both bathrooms were HUGE... which is important when you have as many girls as we do. The condo is RIGHT ON THE BEACH, which we loved. I would definitely stay here again... and hope to next year!!!!'

'What a great view!!! Each day we enjoyed watching the dolphins swim--how lucky can we be? Your condo was very comfortable and clean and we very much appreciated how organized and easy you made our planning. We also appreciated your recommendations of local favorites--Camille's across the street was delicious. We will be back!'

'What a terrific and relaxing place to vacation! We absolutely love Crystal Beach - our girls (14 and 15) were able to walk everywhere - movies, mall, bowling. The beach is fab - the condo spectacular - could not have been better! We will be back!'

About Bill Collett

My wife Janice and I are from Louisiana and have vacationed in Destin for the last 10-12 years. We were given the opportunity to purchase this condo in 2011 and we are so glad we did! As value minded vacationers we are sensitive to the needs of renters and certainly want to deliver a quality vacation experience. As a newly elected condo association board member I want to know personally if this complex fails to meet your expectations.

Thank you,

Bill C.

Bill Collett purchased this condo in 2011

Why Bill Collett chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Location! Quiet private beach yet close to everything! 38 units total in complex. Well maintained. Neighborhood feel. Four complexes away from Henderson Beach which is an undeveloped beach area so you can take your daily walks on natural unpopulated beach with abundant birds and sea life.

What makes this condo unique

Gated, guaranteed parking;

Directly on the beach;

Restaurant, cafe and coffee shop across the street;

Rental company for everything from bikes, kayaks, to baby cribs and strollers directly across the street;

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are so glad we had the opportunity to stay at ya'lls wonderful condo! The weather was absolutely beautify every day the location made it so easy and convenient to go everywhere we wanted. We would definitely recommend going to Aj's and Harry T's in the harbor walk village both were excellent. We spent some time at the outlet mall which had lots to shop around! Again, thank ya'll for opening the condo to us, we had an amazing vacation.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

There were 4 adults and 3 kiddos (6,4 and 2). This condo accommodated us perfectly.

The location is fabulous. Steps to the beautiful white sand (do not even get me started in the clearness of the water, I thought I was in the Caribbean) and just 5 minutes from fun family adventures(if you have small kids check out the Buccaneer cruise at the wharf).

Great people to work with! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home away from home!!

Again we had a wonderful stay at Crystal Dunes. This location is so nice and close to all the great places to dine and shop. Not to mention the beautiful view of the Gulf and just s few steps to the private beach. This property is so clean and front desk help was so nice and helpful. We will definitely come back to Destin and stay at Crystal Dunes.

Lovely condo, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I along friends stayed at this lovely condo. Our group found this unit to be very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The pictures and description are accurate. The beach and pool access could not be better. The view is breathtaking! We found the management and maintenance staff to be very helpful and friendly. They took great care to make sure that only guests were on the property so we always felt safe and secure. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway condo, this is for you. We would definitely return. Linda was great to work with too!

Miss already!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice family vacation. Condo was quite when needed to be, room clean & what was expecting.. which was what pictures shown, none of the un-wanted surprises! Loved the private beach. Would take any day over taller high rises & over crowding! Would love to stay again, & hope to be doing just that next year.

Wonderful place on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent condo and the pictures on VRBO are really how the place looks. The condo was nicely furnished and comfortable. The 4th floor balcony view was fantastic as it directly overlooked the Gulf. The only negative thing I could say about the unit was that there was very little dry food storage space. We had a lot of food on the bar.

The beach was for owners and guests only and this kept the beaches from being crowded. We loved the two chairs and umbrella that came free with the rental. We stayed on the beach all day because of them.

Great restaurants and shopping are very close by.

We were very impressed with the owner and the cleaning crew as they called us shortly after we left at the end of our week to tell us our daughter's IPad was still at the unit. We are very appreciative of their honesty!

If you want a three bedroom condo directly on the Gulf, you would be hard pressed to find one better than this one!
