About The Owner

We have owned our condo since 1985. We vacationed here every year when our daughters were very young. Now our grandchildren get to enjoy the same beach their moms played on as children.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1985

Why The Owner chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

We love the Emerald Coast and especially the white sand, and blue/green water. We selected this condo because it is on the ground floor and access to the beach is just steps away.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with Destin the first time we were here. We have seen MANY changes in the years, but the beauty of the beach and water remains the same.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us. It was our first time in Destin and I am sure it won't be our last. The condo had everything we needed and Angela, you have been very accommodating. I could not ask for a nicer person to deal with. Looking forward to staying here again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Had everything we needed. So easy to walk to the beach- out the patio door, down the steps and there you are. Our 3 year old said it was "incredible". Really liked that the condo is in a smaller complex.

Beach service was great. Always set up early and guys were friendly. We had a great time and will definitely return and stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Dennise for your comments. I love that your 3 year old said our condo was "incredible"! We have to agree with him! So glad you enjoyed the condo itself, and the few steps to the beach. Beach service is important to our guests, and it is our pleasure to provide it complimentary. Looking forward to your return.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed this condo. The condo is very nice and clean. The location is perfect. The bed is comfortable. We have stayed in 2 other condos at crystal villas and this one is my favorite. We want to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Kerri, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We loved having your family as our guests. Thank you also for commenting on the cleanliness of our condo. I know when we travel that is so important to us. I have an awesome cleaner who takes a lot of pride in what she does. So glad you found the king bed comfortable. We just replaced it! Nothing like getting a good night's sleep when you're enjoying the beach most of the day, and of course shopping! We would love to have you back again.

The perfect anniversary getaway...

  • 5 of 5

It had been a while since my wife and I had been to Destin. We were looking for a nice, clean beachfront property to celebrate our wedding anniversary. When I found this property was available for our schedule, it seemed like a perfect fit - and it was! This unit is on the ground floor and has everything you need to be comfortable and the best part...literally steps away from the most beautiful beach imaginable! It was exactly as advertised and Angela was very professional and easy to work with. On property staff was excellent as well. We won't wait as long next time for our return trip to Destin and Crystal Beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at our condo with future guests. It was more than a pleasure to accommodate you for your 25th wedding anniversary. We also love just relaxing on our patio and watching the Gulf. It has such a calming effect. Looking forward to your return.

Wonderful spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Destin area and it didn't disappoint. We decided to hit the road and take the family on a beach vacation for spring break. The condo was very clean and offered an excellent location close to everything with beautiful views of the gulf. It fit our family very well with three boys. The owner Angela was a real pleasure to rent from and was very accommodating to our needs. Loved having a washer and dryer in the condo! So nice to get home and not have to do a ton of laundry. We enjoyed having the beach service and Cameron was very friendly. The highlight of the trip was by far our fishing trip. My husband and boys caught 17 Spanish Mackerels and I got to see some dolphins that came right up to our boat. Great time had by everyone in the family! Looking forward to many more visits to Destin and staying at this condo.

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie, Your fishing trip sounds amazing! We'll have to try it when we're in Destin again. We sometimes see dolphins in the morning and early evening while they are feeding. Some are actually quite close and fun to watch. Thank you for your comments about our condo...they are very appreciated. It is important to us that our guests feel at home during their stay. We would love to have your family come again when you vacation in Destin.

Gorgeous views, comfortable home, and convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

We decided after four days at Disney World with our two girls, we would be in desperate need of some serious R&R to debrief from our stay. We looked and looked for somewhere we wanted to stay for weeks. My husband came across this fabulous condo, and I told him to book it STAT! So glad we did! We love the Crystal/Miramar Beach area, and this condo at Crystal Villas was on the end, and on the first floor. The sliding glass doors let us right out on the beach, and we enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets, and many moments in between! Some of our favorite restaurants were a nice bike ride away(Captain Dave's and The Back Porch), groceries nearby, and we had complimentary lounge chair and umbrella set-up each morning. Our girls LOVED the bunk beds, and the kitchen was well-equipped. You couldn't ask for a better location! Condo was clean, nicely updated and extremely comfy. The owners were accommodating, easy to work with, and we look forward to our next visit to the area, and another stay at this wonderful condo! Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your amazing review. We totally loved having your family spend time at our condo. I know Disney is so much fun, but tiring. So happy you were able to get some relaxing time on our beach and enjoyed our complimentary beach setup. You're so right - the sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking and the colors are so beautiful. We also enjoy Captain Dave's and The Back Porch. Thanks for the suggestion about bike riding there. We'll give it a try! Looking forward to your return.

Best view and laid back vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This October was the 2nd time we stayed in this condo and our third at Crystal Villas. This is by far one of our easy vacation spots for us having a child with some special needs ( our child is mobile, just some mobility difficulties so stairs pose a problem; this first floor unit is the best.). We have direct beach access without crossing the street, a pool that isn't overcrowded, and the proximity to groceries and outings are by far one of the best conveniences. We love being able to communicate directly to the owners and they are wonderful to work with! Their condo is simply beautifully decorated for ease of use as well as comfort giving it a homey not a hotel feel. We love staying here and would recommend this to anyone wanting some laid back quiet but with opportunities to explore and have fun!!

Owner's Response: Wow!! I couldn't have said it better about our condo! Thank you. We also love the first level, and being right on the beach. We hardly use our car, as so many things are within walking distance. Thanks again, Amanda. We look forward to having you as our guests when you visit Destin.
