                              Year Purchased: 1997

                              About the owner: Hi! We are Jon and Rita Bennett of Las Vegas, NV. We both LOVE the ocean. We got married on the beach in Kauai. After discovering the beaches of Destin, we decided we had to have our own piece of this Paradise. It is a perfect place to take our kids and we enjoy golfing and scuba diving every chance we get! We hope you'll enjoy all that Destin has to offer and you'll want to keep coming back too!

                              Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
                              We bought our Carribean Dunes condo because we love the Crystal Beach area of Destin. This area is quiet and peaceful, has bike and walking paths, and is close to shopping and restaurants. The sand is crystal white and the beach is larger and less crowded than some other beaches we've visited.
