Caribbean Dunes condo description

LAST MINUTE DISCOUNTS OFFERED IF BOOKING LESS THAN A WEEK FROM CHECK-IN DATE.

'Blue Sea View' is our cute one-bedroom/one bathroom with hallway bunks on the ground floor of the Caribbean Dunes condo building, right in the heart of the beautiful Crystal Beach corner of Destin.

The main attraction is that our patio looks onto Scenic Gulf Drive and there is a fantastic view just across the street of the Gulf! The public beach access is literally steps away just across the road, you can be on the beach in 60 seconds!

The condo has all the needed amenities in the cute blue-tile kitchen, with breakfast bar and table seating. The living room has a brand new pull-out couch and lounge chair, tv/dvd/vcr/Nintendo-64, cable, wifi internet access, and the huge glass doors leading out to our patio, so you can see the Gulf right from the living room!

In the bedroom is a King bed with new mattress, closet, tv/dvd, dresser, and private access to the bathroom. Since the bedroom is at the back of the condo, it is quiet at night! You'll get a great night's sleep.

In the hallway are the bunk beds for the kids, access to the bathroom, and a washer/dryer cupboard.

Caribbean Dunes has it's own heated pool, hot tub, and grill area, and just 500 feet East down the Scenic Gulf walkway/bikeway is Destin's famous (and local's favorite for the amazing sushi and fresh seafood) Camille's restaurant and cafe where you can get your morning latte or great dinner in the evenings. There is a scooter and bike rental next door. Two other fine restaurants within easy walking distance are the Henderson Inn Beachwalk Cafe and 790 On The Gulf which has a great happy hour menu. Grocery stores are only a mile or two away, and shopping at Destin Commons is even closer!

Everything you'll need for a relaxing and fun stay at the beach is all right there. Come on down to the Emerald Coast!!

              The beautiful beach of Crystal Beach, our little neighborhood in Destin right on Scenic Gulf Drive, is the gem of the Emerald Coast! Close to the Destin Commons shopping, Big Kahunas, Silver Sands Factory Outlet Stores, Henderson Beach State Park, Destin Harbor, and all the great Destin restaurants! You can't get a better location.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Bill and I are a fun-loving couple that loves to travel! We came to the Destin area because of the beauty of the beaches and the perfect Panhandle weather, and to start our family. In October 2012 we had our baby girl!!

              Why the Owner Chose Caribbean Dunes:
              We loved the fact that you could walk right out the living room onto the patio and see the gulf across the street, and walk right across to street to the public beach access. The condo is a perfect size for a family or a small group of friends!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The blue tile in the kitchen is a special feature of this condo, we think it adds a lot of flair and personality!
