About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Great property in Crystal Beach area of Destin....THE PLACE TO BE! -This is the nicest condo in Caribbean Dunes - newly renovated, floor, refrigerator, tile, furniture, luxury linens, lighting, paint, even air conditioning !!

EVERTHING is new, very clean, and extremely comfortable. There are two master suites each with their own private bath (one with a jacuzzi tub). One is on the main floor and one is the spacious upstairs loft for plenty of privacy. There is a new queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. Six can sleep comfortably and nobody is stuck with a bunk in the hall. The kitchen is quite large so there is plenty of room for the chefs in your group. We have just added beautiful glass tile backsplash and new appliances. There are plenty of pot, pans, and of course dishes, silverware, and glassware. The large balcony has terrific views of the Gulf and we have added lovely 18" travertine tile so it is smooth on your bare feet. Relax and enjoy the view, nice breeze, and sunshine.

Walk to the end of the block to Camille's, one of Destin's favorite restaurants, and enjoy a cocktail or a nice meal.

About Michael and Tracy D'Avella

We came for a vacation and fell in love with Destin. We began doing vacation rentals in 2007. It gives us great joy to rent to our vacationing guests and hear about what a wonderful time they had in Destin. Most of our guests come back year after year. We feel like they are family. We are always available for our guests and take great pride in giving each of them excellent customer service. Making wonderful family memories in Destin is what it is all about. We have so many with our own children.

Why Michael and Tracy D'Avella chose Crystal Beach

Caribbean Dunes is at the quiet end of Old Scenic 98 and is absolutely relaxing. The area is known as Crystal Beach for the exceptionally clean clear water and sugar white sand. It is the best area of Destin. After staying in different areas ourselves this is where we knew we wanted to be. We are certain you will love it too.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this condo the minute we walked in the front door. It is larger than most we had seen. The kitchen is large and so is the balcony. The floor plan is unique with the two master bedrooms. We love that no one has to sleep in a hall bunk. The setting is lovely with tropical plants and flowers everywhere. It give you a wonderful feeling of rest and relaxation. You can hear the birds sing at this end of Destin. It's beautiful.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks Mike & Tracy!

The condo is so lovely and well decorated. We had fun and the weather was perfect. Thanks again for allowing us to us your place.

Caribbean Dunes comparably is one of the older condos but very well maintained with a wonderful pool

  • 5 of 5

It is definitely about location location location with this property. Quiet area, even though you are not beach front you can hear the ocean morning/night and have enough view to keep you happy. We loved the lanai and the comfortable outdoor furniture. Any issues addressed to the owners were quickly answered. Loved the little washer/dryer- so nice to have that in your unit. For the cost it was nice and met all our needs. Very roomy, never felt cramped.

A key pad for entry would of been easier than one key.

Perfect Destin Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Caribbean Dunes #208. The owners were easy to work with, and the condo was better than pictured in the listing. Really enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the mornings and watching the sun come up. Has a nice coffee shop/restaurant named Camille’s less than a block away that we walked down to frequently for coffee. Proximity to the beach was nice, and even though it was not right on the beach it did offer views of the water. Condo was stocked with everything we needed and felt like our own vacation home. For the price and location this condo can’t be beat. We will definitely be coming back on our next visit to Destin!

Owner's Response: Thank you Albert for being such wonderful guests and for all the nice compliments. You are greatly appreciated and we are so glad to hear that you will be back. We love the condo and it's location as well. The view is so beautiful and the nice stroll to Camille's is both fun and relaxing. We do stock the condo with plenty for the chef in family to use in the kitchen as well as extras like books, games, and pool/beach toys for our guests to use. Thank you again.

Our experience was magnificent, everything we could have asked for in a beach vacation. The harbor was a short drive and full of fun things to do.

The condo was clean and fresh. The furnishings, appliances and counters were current and higher end.
