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 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 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

My family enjoyed our stay at this condo. It is tastefully updated and in a great location. It literally took us three minutes to get to the sand! This was the first time we stayed on this end, usually Holiday Isle, and we might be hooked. There were plenty of great restaurants out this way to discover. We even found ourselves just cruising scenic 98 because it was so beautiful. My only issue was that we had a little trouble with our copy of the condo key. You had to find the sweet spot everytime you tried to unlock the door. Again, that is my only issue so extremely minor. The owners stayed in contact before arrival and were very helpful. I highly recommend this rental!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being such wonderful guests and for the excellent five star review. The Crystal Beach area of Destin is our favorite too. The scenery is amazing and the beach there is the best in the area. We are glad you had such a great experience. We do keep a spare key at the condo so we wish you would have let us know that the one we sent you was troublesome. We could have had you get the spare and swap it out. We are always available for all of our guests. Thank you for recommending our "home away from home." We look forward to you coming again!

Don't miss this one!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated and was very, very clean. Have been to Destin several times and this was by far, the cleanest, most well decorated and fully stocked cooking utensils I have visited. The only downside for my husband and myself was the many steps. At this stage in our life, a lower level condo would best suit our needs.
