Crystal Sands condo description

Crystal Sands 108A is a 1st floor beachfront unit. Open the patio door and you are steps from the white sand and waves! No parking garage or elevators with this unit. Park right in front of the building, enter with your digital lock code and start your vacation.

**1st floor unit** is very convenient when you are lounging at the beach and want grab something from the unit! You can sit on the patio and keep an eye on the kids on the beach. Crystal Sands is a low rise (3 story) condo. It is a deeded private beach and not crowded.

This unit includes one **complimentary** beach set-up each day (two chairs and one umbrella). Watch the dolphins swim (yes, we see them a lot) while you sit on the patio listening to the waves! There is a pool on the front side of the building with lounge chairs as well. Our building has two grilling areas at each end of the boardwalk (4 grills total), so grilling a steak or burgers is no problem.

We recently remodeled the unit this past fall with all new paint, cabinets, furniture, mattresses, and appliances. We have all the latest electronics, new LED flatscreen TVs, 55' in living room, and 42' in bedroom, Sound Bar with Bluetooth to sync your favorite music, and a Blu-Ray DVD player (multiple Red Box locations). Unit includes free Wireless Internet.

Our kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and is fully furnished with cookware and utensils. We have a Keurig on the countertop, so just bring your K-cups (Mr. Coffee in cabinet if needed). New full size LG high efficiency washer and dryer for any clothes or towels you may want to wash.

Our unit is comfortable and casual (no stuffy formal furniture) and very clean. Sleeps 6 with a King in the master suite, twins in the hallway bunks, and a queen sleeper sofa. We love to spend time here and we hope you do too!!!

We just started renting our unit in 2014.

              Location

              Directly on the beautiful white sand beach but minutes away from amazing shopping and restaurants. Destin Commons is right beside the Bass Pro Shop less than 5 minutes away. Just a few minutes down the road is the Silver Sands Outlet Mall. Publix, Walgreens, WalMart just minutes away. Great neighborhood to walk or ride bikes but close to the main road and the restaurants. Destin is known for it's deep sea fishing and the condo is not too far from the harbor and docks. Surfing, board paddling, kayaks and jetskis nearby to rent. There are lots of restaurants near the harbor docks with fresh seafood from the gulf!!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We've been married for 28 years and have two sons and a wonderful daughter in-law. We also have three playful 'grandpuppies' (yellow and chocolate labs and Great Dane) and a slightly cantankerous cat. We live in Tennessee and this is the only property we manage.

              Why the Owner Chose Crystal Sands:
              We have been coming to Crystal Sands for years with our boys because it was the perfect condo and area for us. They loved the beach and pool in the daytime and hunting for crabs at night. The go-carts, waterpark, arcades, and fun restaurants are all close by for a fun night. We always had plenty of room for them to bring their friends. My family all love to go deep sea fishing and we love the fresh fish from these excursions. The kids are grown now and we are happy to have the condo now for weekend getaways.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Beautiful views, directly on the beach, yet close to everything. This is a unique quite area but minutes away from fantastic shopping, dining, and family fun! Destin is known for its fishing and the fresh seafood can't be beat. It is our favorite spot for relaxing and recharging.
