Great view, location and beach access

  • 4 of 5

Great view, location and beach access. Spacious apartment comfortably accommodated our party of 9. Well equipped kitchen, large dining table and TVs in every room. A bit hot upstairs but portable fans provided by the property helped with that. Kids enjoyed the pool in a family friendly ambiance while we enjoyed the beach. Mike was very responsive to our needs and issues that arose, mostly due to weather. We greatly enjoyed our stay!

Property was very accommodating for all our needs and was very well maintained.

Great condo on a great beach. Condo has been updated recently and had everything we needed. I have been to many resorts around the world and speaking for this part of the beach...Amazing! I’m not a beach fan, but I never made it to the pool all week. The sand equals any I’ve ever stepped feet in. Spring break in Florida is usually popular so there were plenty of beach goers but the beach was big enough for everyone. Location was excellent in relation to the surrounding Destin attractions. Entertainment, dining, harbor walk, wal mart (for anything you forget), Best Buy, Lowe’s all just minutes away. Great place for a domestic vacation. Thanks Mike D and all the people of Destin, you were all great.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo! The view couldn't have been better. It's in a great location, close to restaurants and shops. Mike was also very prompt in helping us resolve a little issue with the cable. Totally enjoyed our stay! Thank you.

Paradise awaits!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved the breathtaking view from the balcony of 304B. The condo was just as described. We had plenty of room for our family of 10. The kitchen was especially great with a large refrigerator and a large island. The week we were in Destin, the water was perfect. It was that beautiful turquoise/green color and crystal clear. The sand is that beautiful powdery white (my grandkids thought it was snow, ha!). We had a wonderful week!

Graeat Location and very convenient!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Crystal Sands. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond. The location was wonderful and convenient to all shopping and stores and attractions. The condo was nice with some kitchen updates. There were a few minor issues with some outlets not working properly and sand in the upstairs bed when we arrived. The master bed was very comfortable. I would suggest bringing some dish clothes and soap to wash dishes. Overall the beach and the view from our condo was great. We enjoyed watching dolphins in the morning while having coffee on the patio. The price overall seemed a little high for the week, but for the location and convenience it was a great stay.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the fine comments about your enjoyable stay. I wish I had been made aware of maintenance issues during your stay rather than after your departure via a review. We strive to keep the condo in top shape and hope to earn five stars on your next visit. In the mean time, I will let the housekeepers and maintenance dept, which is on sight seven days per week, know of the required maintenance issues. Thanks, Mike

Beach was crowded but the unit was great

  • 4 of 5

Loved having a washer/dryer in the unit and the space. The beach was way too crowded though.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the unit! Sorry to hear the beach was crowded. Crystal Beach has no high rise properties so the population density is low compared to downtown or the Sandestin area. It's way worse near the high rise areas, but high summer is high summer. Thanks for coming and taking great care of the condo! Mike
