Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We purchased this beautiful condo in Nov, 2006. It has a great view of the Beach, but we immediately remodeled it with new kitchen cabinets, granite counter, new stainless appliances, new tile and carpet, crown molding, new light fixtures and faucets and new sinks in the baths! We also updated the bedding and custon drapes for the living room. The condo is not decorated in your typical 'beach' theme which folks tell me they are very tired of. I have a great cleaning person and a great maintenance person! Jerry and I are retired but I manage my 3 condos in Destin and some local properties as well. We keep busy! We have one daughter and Son in Law, Jennifer and Henry, and 3 grand kids and one step grand kid (Haylea is 14, Jack is 7, Baby Henry is a few days old and Katie is 14)

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Sands:
The Crystal Sands is centrally located with a fabulous view!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo is updated and close to everything!
