About Christine Dodson

My Husband Greg and I are from Houston, TX and we have two children, a 16 year old daughter and a 13 year old son. We fell in love with Destin many years ago when the kids were little and now that they are older, we decided to purchase a beach home that our kids and all their friends will want to come visit for years to come.

Christine Dodson purchased this townhome in 2017

Why Christine Dodson chose Crystal Beach

We are super excited about our New Beach House and want to share it with you as well! We have been coming to Destin on family vacations for several years now, we love the beaches and everything that Destin has to offer. We hope you enjoy our property as much as we do!

What makes this townhome unique

We love our 3 desks all with ocean views and having the end corner unit is has all the windows needed to see the beautiful sunsets!

Great Townhome that made for a PERFECT family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I am not even sure where to start on this rental. We have been coming down to the Gulf for the last 6 years and stayed in either Destin or Gulf Shores, so have a lot of experience with vacation rentals. This one is on the top of our list for sure! We had 5 adults and two boys ages 9 and 12 and this home was perfect! The house comes with everything you would need and I mean everything. We typically bring a lot from home and this year we could have left most of it at home! With the extra kitchen down there is plenty of refrigerator space for food to feed all 7 of us. There is pretty much every dish, pan, utensil you could possibly need and they are all in great shape. Having that area down off the beach made it easy for anyone to come up from the beach and grab a snack or make lunch on their own. The home is beautifully decorated as well. The boys had a great time playing the chess board table upstairs with their uncle, and of course they couldn't believe the amount of games that were with the xbox downstairs. The patio furniture was wonderful for sitting out and enjoying the beautiful evenings! We definitely used the Kayak and the paddleboards daily! I actually fell in love and ordered the shampoo and conditioners that they provide for us at home too! Christine the owner was so wonderful during our entire stay! She communicated with us before our stay and during so anything that we may needed to check on was easily answered. I can't say enough positive things about the owners or the house. This vacation was needed as we came home to pack up our house and move right before school starts, and this townhome and owners made our vacation so relaxing it couldn't have been better. Daniel who sets up your umbrella and chairs every morning is absolutely THE BEST as well! Great recommendations and always there to help when needed. We will definitely be back!

Where do you live?

Let’s book again! We found our place for good!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is simply amazing! Clean, spacious, right on the beach! The beach service was impeccable! It felt like we were all to ourselves! The condo has everything! I am ready to book for next year!! We have five children, one who is autistic and he felt right at home. I don’t think we would ever be able to stay somewhere else. This place spoiled us! Beds comfy, bathrooms awesome, balconies are incredible. Ice machine rocks!!! It was all so perfect!

Perfect beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to be at this wonderful property for the last week of April 2018. The interior is beautifully decorated and just as pictured. We flew to the area, so we were grateful that there was coffee, dish soap, paper products, etc., to get us started - and beach towels and water toys (kayak and SUPs) for our use. The condo is one of 8 units and is on the end, which is a bonus because it provided many more windows, light and views of the beach and Gulf! As great as the interior is, the outside spaces are even better. There's a deck at each level - a small one off the master, larger off the family room and a huge deck off the ground level, which leads right to the beach. Speaking of the beach... this is why we came. It was just as we'd heard - beautiful, white sugar sand and clear blue/green water.

Two chairs and an umbrella were set up each morning for our use. We used them. Thank you to Christine for sharing this spot! We highly recommend it!

Has everything and then some!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything we could have ever wanted in our stay in Destin. Bedrooms were wonderful and the kids loved the bunk room. We also were able to set up pallets for sleepovers in the downstairs room which was the kids hangout. We had two refrigerators and an icemaker. I dont even have that at home. the place is decorated so cute and it was very clean. the weather was not great but we were still able to have a wonderful time. The kids still got in the water and played on the two paddleboards and Kayak that were also available. the deck is so large and there is a swing on the balcony upstairs. the place comes with shampoo and conditioner and none of the other condos have that. I thought the little things were a very nice touch. We found that the garbage disposal downstairs did not work and reported it to the owner and they were glad to fix it. The beds were all very comfortable and the sheets were soft as mine at home and I am very picky. the blankets were also soft and nice. This place is so great we cant wait to book again. thanks for having us. We will be back

Amazing! Super Clean, Upgrades, Awesome Views!

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation rental we’ve done! Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness upgrades and quality not to mention how spacious it felt. Amazing ocean views from all three levels. It was nice for us to spread out and have privacy when we wanted but also cozy enough for fun with family and friends. We adored The beach/nautical decor because of it’s sophisticated style. The beds were very comfortable and sleeping was easy since the rooms were so quite. We never heard neighbors... just the gentle sound of the ocean. The bathrooms were beautifully appointed with luxurious amenities including designer lotion, soaps and shampoos. Clean fluffy white towels were plentiful and it was also wonderful to have a quality washer dryer in the unit to use as needed. Lots of nice dishes and cooking utensils to use in the two high end kitchens with full size appliances. There was even a dedicated ice maker in the downstairs kitchen with easy access to the beach, gas grill on the spacious deck. We didn’t use the pool but it was lovely and looked clean. Lots of parking on the stone paver lot was a plus if you had guests. There were 3 huge flat screen TVs and even an Xbox for the kids. Unlimited beach fun including stand up paddle boards kayak and beach toys chairs etc. you wouldn’t need to bring anything. But if you did want something it was convenient to stores restaurants and entertainment. We can’t say enough about the comfort, quality and fun we had during our stay. Great value and we will definitely be back!
