Property description

With just a flight of stairs separating you from the stunning white sand and beautiful emerald waters of Crystal Beach, The Floridian is the perfect place for a relaxing coastal getaway. This recently-renovated second floor condo sleeps four (one King size bed and two bunks) and comes equipped with enough toiletries to start you off and a complimentary beach service of two chairs and an umbrella during high season (March to October.) The beach is right on your door step and a myriad of eating, shopping and entertainment options are within easy walking or driving distance. The condo is painted in soothing natural colors and decorated in a playful, nautical style punctuated by elegant designer touches. The light and airy central living space features breathtaking sea views, while the large balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail. If you’re lucky you might even spot some dolphins frolicking in the distance. If you want to mix in some activities with your relaxation there are plenty of options, including Dolphin Cruises, Deep Sea Fishing trips and a variety of water sports. You can take a stroll down Scenic Highway 98 or head east by car along the coast to the quaint beachside communities of Seagrove, Seaside and Rosemary Beach. At night, you can enjoy drinks on the terrace of 790 On The Gulf or check out one of the local beachside restaurants, which include the ever-popular Pompano Joe’s. There are further eating options just a short drive away in the center of Destin. If you'd prefer a quiet night in, the large flat-screen TV, sumptuous leather sofa and newly-installed electric fireplace ensure you'll be comfortable doing so at any time of year. When it comes time to turn in, the King Size Marriott Bed an award-winning bedding, guarantee you a good night’s sleep. The owner lives a short drive away in Santa Rosa Beach and is happy to answer any questions you might have about the condo or the attractions of Destin and the surrounding area. If you are looking for a luxurious, stress-free vacation, The Floridian is the right place for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I grew up among the tumbleweeds and sandstorms of west Texas. My college degrees are from The University of Texas at Austin (go Longhorns!) and I taught early elementary for many years. I have two wonderful married sons that live far away, unfortunately, and one grandson. I've lived in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and now Florida. After searching for several years, I finally found a new 'home' in the Destin area in 2013. In 2012 I purchased my first condo at Gulf Place in Santa Rosa Beach (VRBO #467384.) Please take a look at my 5 star reviews! I enjoyed it so much when I visited Florida, that I decided I would like to live here and that's what prompted my move.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Villas:
I've always loved the ocean, but was absolutely taken aback by the view and proximity to the water when I looked at this condo. From a decorator's point of view, I could see the potential in the unit and decided it was perfect. I purchased it in January 2014 and spent over two months renovating and decorating.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Floridian is the ultimate in luxury. Not only did I choose a Marriott Bed with custom bedding, but I also had an electric fireplace installed, added vessel sinks, bought new furniture, new granite, new toilets, new ac/heat unit, and purchased decorator items to embellish it with.
