About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to beauty at the Beach! This exquisitely decorated, platinum rated three bedroom, three bath, first floor condominium is perfect for a large family or group of friends who want to share a fun beach holiday at one of the finest resorts on the Emerald Coast. The comfort and delight of our guests are the primary consideration in selecting the new decor, with its wonderful architectural details, and equipping the unit with the latest appliances and state of the art televisions. The spacious terrace overlooks the lush landscaped tropical garden area surrounding the pools, with the turquoise water of the Gulf of Mexico in the background, making it a perfect place for relaxation while basking in the Florida sun.

The Crescent is conveniently located near a wide variety of shopping venues and local restaurant favorites and is directly on the beach. Being a midrise property, with only sixty eight units, assures everyone plenty of space for lounging comfortably on the beach or around the two pools, one of which is heated seasonally. This property also offers two conference rooms, one of which is large enough to host a family gathering or small reception, a fitness center, a library/business center, free beach service (4 chairs and 2 umbrellas), a service award winning front desk staff, as well as a secure gated complex. With so many fine attributes, The Crescent not only has the style and grace of a premier resort, but a peaceful and serene setting.

About Kim & Jeff Rice

From Nashville TN, our family started vacationing here several times a year starting in 2000 with the dream of one day owning at this property. In 2009 it became a reality and now is truly a home away from home for us and our extended family including many new friends who rent from us regularly.

Kim & Jeff Rice purchased this condo in 2009

Why Kim & Jeff Rice chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

Nothing in the area can compare to the location, condition and amenities of this property. Not only is it right on the beach but it boasts large resort pools, beautiful landscaping, newly renovated lobby, fitness room & library/business center and an award-winning staff who keep this property in top condition. It is within walking distance of the Silver Sands Outlet Mall and next door to a great new beachfront restaurant, The Surf Hut. Its relatively small number of units compared to others in the area means more beach and pool space for everyone. We wouldn't have chosen another location to vacation or purchase!

Excellent stay 2 years & counting!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the Crescent a beautiful property to stay in, but this condo has become our favorite! Excellent furnishings, super clean, and lots of thoughtful "extras." The set up of the condo worked well for our group especially the doubles room for kiddos. The owners have really thought of everything for vacation convenience from appliances in the kitchen to board games. Communication from the owners was great and they were so kind to provide such a luxury vacation experience. The location of the condo in the complex was really convenient for taking the stairs from the car only one story or the elevator if needed. Easy beach and pool access. Looking forward to our third year in this beautiful unit!

Better than the Pictures

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful updated condo with all the amenities! Great location - close to shops, grocery store, restaurants and of course the beach just steps away! The owner quickly responded to all our questions.....the gift basket was a very special touch, geared towards our group of teenage girls and moms. The storage room had brand new beach chairs and tons of beach games/toys for our use during the stay. The pictures don't do justice to this condo and I highly recommend it to anyone!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice vacation thanks to our accommodations at this lovely condo. Our group consisted of 4 adults & 3 children ages 9, 3 & 10 months. We had enough room for everyone to have their own bedroom & bathroom. The condo was equipped with a pack n play & high chair for the baby & was very kid friendly. Honestly, there is NOT one thing I can say negatively about our experience in renting this condo = everything was perfect. It was CLEAN, beds were comfortable, kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook your meals, the owner was extremely pleasant to work with. The gift basket was so very thoughtful & appreciated. She even included things for the kids ....sand toys, a flashlight to hunt sand crabs at night, & an assortment of cereal boxes for the kids! The grounds are beautiful, plenty of room at the pools, & the beach is just a few steps away. There is a grocery store just around the corner & it is conveniently located across from the outlet mall & a bit away from the hustle & bustle of Destin proper, although still close enough if you want to go there. We ate most of our meals in, but enjoyed dinners at Fat Clemenza's (pizza, Italian food) not far from the condo, & had a very good seafood meal at Dewey Destins, down at the Destin wharf. Oh, & my daughter in law was delighted that there was a Krispy Kreme Donut place in the area - she surprised us with HOT donuts

a couple of mornings! Not our usual breakfast fare, but Hey, we were on vacation! One other thing about this condo I want to mention is that I appreciated that it was only 4 levels, not a high rise condo. Seemed more quaint & was easy to get around. With our little ones, the last thing I wanted to do was to be in bathing attire, hauling beach gear & 3 little kids, waiting for an elevator. We had so much fun & the condo was such a nice place to call home for the week. Thank you, Kim, for allowing us the opportunity to use your condo. Not sure what our future plans hold, but we most certainly would rent this condo again.

This condo was the best I've ever rented! The kitchen was stocked with every appliance, pot, pan, pitcher, and dish you could ever imagine needing. Upon arrival there was a very nice picnic basket stocked with snacks and sand toys and even a spare beach towel. The furniture and all the beds were very comfortable and luxurious with lots of thick towels in all the bathrooms and very soft sheets on the beds. There were even movies, books and board games in the condo for a rainy day, or a quiet, down time in the heat of the day. The pool was huge and the hot tub great fun. It was a very close walk to the beach with a free large umbrella and 2 chairs available each day.

Our favorite restaurants were Jordano's pizza, Graffiti, and Captain Daves. We also enjoyed Bad Ass Coffee which was within walking distance as well as breakfast and awesome donuts from the Donut Hole. There's an outlet Mall, Silver Sands, very close by with a Starbuck and a Panera right in front of it. We are hoping to make this vacation an annual event!

Beautiful condo, great location, excellent owners!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully updated and well maintained. The condo has very nice furnishings, comfortable beds, and a TV with DVD in every room. We have rented through VRBO multiple times, and although we have been satisfied in the past, this condo is the best one we have stayed in.

The owner was a pleasure to work with. She even had a basket of snacks and beach toys waiting on the counter when we arrived.

The kitchen was the BEST stocked we have ever seen. Everything we needed was there. Cookware, utensils, glasses, etc. I have to mention that the condo is very well stocked with nice, thick bath towels. That’s not something we have seen in past rentals.

The location is terrific as well. This smaller complex is in a beautiful spot on the beach. Having two beach chairs and an umbrella available to us everyday was great. (The “chair guy” was very nice, as well.)

The pool area is great. The large pool was a little chilly to use this early in March and we were so happy to have the smaller heated pool to enjoy.

On a side note, our three favorite dinners out were at Cuvee Bistro, Marlin Grill and Vue on 30A. All had excellent food, service and atmosphere.

We will happily return to this condo in the future and highly recommend it to other renters.
