Second Visit for Our Family, Still Our Favorite Accommodations
"We were able to return to Big Tuna at Villages of Crystal Beach for our family's summer vacation. This property still is a crowd pleaser. This is our 6th year to stay at The Villages of Crystal Beach. We love the lagoon style pool. The block and a half to the beach is no hassle for us! This particular home suits our family in every way. Again, with a new baby in the family, we are so appreciative of all of the accommodations, big and small (crib, pack-n-play, baby gates, baby dishes, bathtub, etc). Although we had plenty of beds for our family, there is even a nice blow up mattress to use for a bigger crowd. We love that this home is so close to the pool. We will continue to return to The Villages of Crystal Beach and Big Tuna."

"This was an amazing property. A family of 10..my in-laws (age: late 60's early 70's) stayed on the first level, which was absolutely perfect for them. It offers a small kitchen for their needs. They had a Murphy bed to sleep on, which I was concerned the mattress would not be thick enough for them. Perfect mattress. They slept well. We had to assist them with taking it down and putting it up, b/c it is very heavy. They were able to go out onto the balcony that leads to the beach at any time of the day. Stairs are difficult for my MIL, so this bottom level was perfect for her to have. The rest of the family was on the 2nd & 3rd floors (main unit) & we were all quite happy with the sleeping arrangements. My 4 boys (age 11, 10, 7, 6), stayed on the 3rd floor and fit perfectly in their bed/bathroom. My husband & I had the 3rd floor master bedroom which was beautiful & just down the hall from them. It was nice waking up & seeing the ocean every morning. We took advantage of the swing on the balcony too. My BIL & SIL stayed in the bedroom on the 2nd floor, just off of the kitchen, which leads into the main living room, which leads to the view of the ocean. The pictures don't do it justice. This townhouse really is beautifully decorated & well kept. Everything you need is right at your finger tips. The garage is a bonus room that offers bikes, ping pong table, foosball table, flashlights, etc. My kids played a couple of games of ping pong and foosball. I think they would have stayed longer, but it was super hot. I would recommend a Cyclone fan for more airflow. The fan in there wasn't helpful. The tires on the kids bikes were either flat or a little low. I would recommend having them checked before guests arrive. We had a toilet overflow on the 3rd floor & I was able to get in touch with the owner very quickly. She came to the unit to assess the situation & was very appreciative of how quickly we took care of her place. I liked the fact that she was easy to contact during the time we were there. I have been to Destin twice & used property's that were cared for by an owner. I prefer this, b/c you will get the very best from them. Any questions or recommendations before the trip were answered in a timely fashion. If you choose this property, you won't be disappointed. It is close to the best food places and shops & most important, right on the beach. We are now spoiled. Thx Pamela. We had a great time & my in-laws enjoyed their grandkids. Hope to come again!"

"My family had a great time in Destin. We loved our stay at the Sundial Cottage everything was great! Our kids loved having a pool and of course the beach. Destin is our place to go now and we hope the Sundial is open for next year's vacation ."

"It was a Great Stay!When we entered the condo everyone of us was like Wow what a nice place that was very homey with a Great view of ocean. The pics dont do it justice the way it is Beautifully decorated.We were happy we got 2 chairs with umbrella free and already set up everyday when we went out to beach.it had Everything you needed to cook which we done one nite on the gas grill that was located close to the pool! we enjoyed sitting on the balcony at nite looking at moon and listening to the waves. It was very close to restaurants and shopping. We also felt very safe here with all the codes on doors! It is a very safe area! Randy is Great to work with getting everything done for your stay by answering all questions and just checking in to see if we needed anything.We can't wait to stay here again! I would highly recommend this condo!"
