Overview

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 blue glass tile and a new refrigerator. 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 Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Condo was easy to find and our arrival was late at night after driving 17 hours that day. We carried our luggage to the second floor, opened the door and proceeded to relax for a few minutes before collapsing into a wonderful bed. The condo was just like home with all of the necessary appliances, pots, pans and more kitchen tools than we could possibly have used. A good view of the ocean between two large condominiums across the street. The next morning walked along the beach after entering the beach area through a gate (for which they provided the combination) and walk from the private beach area both north and south to public beaches.

Condo was exactly as described and we enjoyed several evenings sitting on the balcony breathing the salt air.

The surf was up several days with red flag warnings but we were still free to wade in the water, just not going out to swim. The swimming pool was at the end of our building and allowed us to sit and unwind for the week.

We took a trip to Pensacola to watch the Blue Angels fly but were surprised to find that the Air Force Thunderbirds were there as well. If you go, call to verify times since the web site was not accurate. is wonderful and we used many of the recommendations from the owners. They never steered us wrong and having their restaurant recommendations was another unexpected feature of renting their condo. We will look them up when we return to the east coast.

Good location.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a good location. We liked to sit on the balcony & listen to the waves in the morning. The condo is spacious; there was plenty of room for the four of us. The only downfall was that we didn't realize until we were here that most of the beach by the condo is private. There are a couple of small public areas but they got pretty crowded quickly.

Perfect location and perfect condo for us!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo!!! We had never been to Destin before and got amazingly lucky on the location (we ran on the path each morning, walked to the beach, and then walked to dinner). The condo was beautifully decorated and plenty big for our family of 5. The kids really enjoyed the pool and hot tub! Nice sized! My husband and I loved sitting out on the patio. Thanks for the wonderful vacation!!! Weve already recommended this condo to friends.

Wonderful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time renting from Mike and Tracy and I absolutely loved this home. It is directly across the street from the beach and the condominiums are very quiet. We had plenty space and everything was nice and clean upon our arrival. I am big on customer service as well and Tracy has always been very pleasant with both of my stays.

Very nice and very comfortable. We really enjoyed our time there.

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we got in to the unit. Everything was neat and clean and someplace that I knew that we would have a great time. Plenty of space and nice scenery. This is an area that I had never been to and there is so much around there to do and see. We were in Destin for my nephew's wedding. My mother passed away just this past September so it was really nice to be with family. We would definitely consider this as a place to stay if we travel to Destin again. We have your card with our other business cards so that if we need it, we have it handy. Again thank you so much for your hospitality. If someone would ask me for a recommendation for a rental property in Destin, this would be the one and only that I would give to them. So clean, so organized and easy to get to. This was one of the easiest rental transactions that I have ever done. And, the property was as advertised. Sometimes you do not get what was advertised. That was not the case. The unit was more than we anticipated.
