                        We could not have been more pleased with this rental experience! Angela called us the first night to make sure everything was up to par (it was!) and to see if we had any questions about the area and made great suggestions. We felt so welcome! The condo was absolutely spotless and had everything we needed to cook in. I loved the washer and dryer and the layout with a bath and a half located both from the bedroom and the hallway is perfect for young families (with two bunks in the hall) or a "seasoned" couple like us. We loved being on the ground floor and the complimentary chairs and umbrellas. No problem parking at all. Because of it's location it is so much fun for people watching....Some times when you rent a condo unseen it is a little worn...not the case here! Such obvious pride of ownership...new tile in the bedroom...new dishwasher and while we were there an exterior paint job and other exterior repairs. We would rent here again in a heartbeat!

                        Owner response: Wow, thank you for appreciating all our upgrades and care that we put into our condo. Our guests are very special to us, and we want everything to be perfect for them. We love upgrading and have fun doing it when we are there. So happy you enjoyed your vacation and were able to have a wonderful experience. Hope you'll be back soon.

                        Hi Angela. Thanks for letting us share in your condo. We did appreciate the wonderful king size bed and having real comfy furniture to boot. We love the Crystal Villas and have stayed there on and off for 20 years. The grounds are always maintained and well kept up and Chad does a wonderful job caring for the visitors and building. We will be back. Thanks

                        Owner response: Thank you for your comments, Earl. We try to do as much as possible to improve and upgrade our condo every year when we are there. Our guests are very special to us and we want them to feel all the comforts of home. Looking forward to having you return to Crystal Villas.

                        To help celebrate a birthday, Valentine's Day and a 1-year relationship anniversary I surprised my girlfriend with a 3-day weekend stay at your beautiful condo. I have wanted to go to the Destin area ever since airline service to Pensacola was established and it is more than I ever imagined! And, to paraphrase her impression - "It couldn't have been more perfect!". Your eating recommendations were wonderful (didn't get to all of them, darnit!) and the views from the patio in the mornings and evenings were exceptional. We both hope we can stay longer than 3 days next time!

                        Owner response: Dear Randy and Ann, Thank you for your wonderful comments about our condo. We are so happy that you were able to celebrate such special occasions at Crystal Villas. Aren't the sunrises and sunsets unbelievable? Nothing can describe the amazing colors that blend together. We hope you'll return in the near future. I have a lot more dining suggestions for you!

                        Thanks Angela for being so accommodating. The condo was very comfortable and the yard was definitely a plus. Loved everything...from the area, heated pool, first floor corner unit, easy access to beach and friendly staff. Sorry the 2nd trip didn't work out but I'll be back.

                        Owner response: Ann, So happy you were able to relax and enjoy your time at our condo. We also enjoy all the things you mentioned: the yard, heated pool, and 1st floor easy access to the beach. We agree, the staff are always so friendly and helpful to our guests and are an asset to Crystal Villas. Thank you again for renting from us.

                        It had been 19 years since I set foot in Crystal Villas. Walking in the door and seeing the Gulf, the blue water and white sand, it was like I had never left. Now, I'm a wife and a mother coming to Destin with my 3 year old son on his first Beach Trip. Last time, I was a Senior in high school there on spring break with my parents and friends. I've been to Destin more than any other beach and stayed at this unit in Crystal Villas more than any other condo. For a true beach experience, it is the ONLY PLACE TO BE. This unit has had the same condo owners since 1985 and I love that the essence of the condo, of Crystal Villas and of Destin has remained the same since that time. I love seeing the updates and changes in decor they've made throughout the years while the care and feeling of home has remained the same. The entries left in the six guests books could truly write their own book or movie. Reading the entries of others solidifies the effect this condo has. It's close proximity to the beach is what makes the whole experience a vacation. Being able to go back and forth, in and out is a luxury. As all guests do, you will find your own special places in Destin. Reading what other condo unit guests have done or seen expands the experience. It is amazing to feel such a shared connection with people you have not meet, but feel you know. I have spent many a spring break in Destin and in this condo specifically. I hope I will be able to continue that tradition. It's a place to be who you truly are and spend time with family and friends in a way home doesn't allow. Destin is an easy vacation. It's an easy drive, things are accessible, lots of local places to go and eat at, the local people are easy to meet and talk to. At this condo, your car is out one door, the beach out the other, and the set up in the condo is perfect! Enjoy your beach vacation at Crystal Villas! Upon leaving you will feel like you are leaving a part of yourself behind and when you return a part of you will feel like you never left. (even if it's been 19 years)

                        Owner response: Laura, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and tell about your time in our B1 condo. We like our guests to feel at home when they are here, but you truly did come "home". We're thrilled that you now rent from us with your family, and are still enjoying our unit and the beach. We look forward to your return in April.

                        This was by far the best vacation I have ever been on. Loved the first floor, so convenient to the beach and what an excellent view! Seeing the sun rise and set over the water was breathtaking! Our 3 year old loved the ground floor also and I didn't have to worry about her falling! Centrally located to shopping to, just about two blocks to Destin Commons! Loved the included beach service! We will definitely be back!

                        We got this condo kind of last minute. The price was great and when we arrived, we couldn't believe how amazing it really was for the price!! Angela and Richard really make you feel at home. They called to make sure we arrived and that all was well. This is the first condo I've ever seen with grass on the beach! The grass is very well kept and helps get that access sand off your feet before entering the condo. My boyfriend loved the east end location of the condo. The beach service was amazing as well. We will definitely be back!

We are so pleased with the young men who do our beach service, as they always take such great care of our guests. Thank you for your comments and looking forward to your return.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1985

                      About the owner: We have owned our condo since 1985. We vacationed here every year when our daughters were very young. Now our grandchildren get to enjoy the same beach their moms played on as children.

                      Why the Owner Chose Crystal Villas:
                      We love the Emerald Coast and especially the white sand, and blue/green water. We selected this condo because it is on the ground floor and access to the beach is just steps away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We fell in love with Destin the first time we were here. We have seen MANY changes in the years, but the beauty of the beach and water remains the same.
