Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, sleeper sofa, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come and enjoy our updated condo in private/gated condominium! Gulf front, west end unit condominium w/sunset views perfect for a painting! Cool sea breezes and tranquil surroundings await you at 205 Emerald Dunes, settled in the heart of Crystal Beach which is well known for beautiful, wide beaches and no high rise condominiums. Not only does this mean less people on the beach but also adds to the relaxing atmosphere of the Crystal Beach community. Simply lounge on your gulf front balcony with a good book, relax on the beach, or rent a bike just across the street and tour the quaint, cottage style community. A bike path is also just across the street which goes the entire length of Scenic Hwy 98. Additionally several restaurants are within walking distance and just two blocks away are four major shopping areas complete with Publix Grocery, various shops and restaurants as well as a large movie theatre.

This 2nd floor end unit condo has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, hallway bunk area and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Brand new ceramic tile throughout the entire condo and a fully remodeled kitchen that boasts granite counter tops, painted cabinetry & stainless steel appliances. Other brand new items addressed were the AC, water heater, front load washer & dryer and fresh paint throughout. But our favorite update was our ability to double the living area space. Incredible gulf views can be enjoyed by all from the living area featuring a full kitchen with breakfast bar and dining area. The covered gulf front balcony is a great place to start the day relishing your morning coffee and end the day enjoying the evening sunsets. Evening meals can be poolside with two stainless steel gas grills adjacent to the pool and are maintained by the Association staff. As an added bonus, the elevator is optional due to this end unit condo positioned in front of west stairwell. Just one flight of stairs and it opens up directly across from our front door. Perfect for those who are anti-elevators/impatient as myself:)

Also, I speak to all guests prior to accepting reservations to ensure we have all questions answered and to go over all details for the reservation. We want to welcome guests who will be responsible, accountable and considerate of our vacation home. So please feel free to call me at anytime with any questions prior to requesting a reservation. Thank you again and we look forward to you and your family allowing us to accommodating you stay here in beautiful Destin, FL!

P.S.: For larger groups or family reunions we also own the opposite East end unit, Emerald Dunes #201, VRBO #596028. It has the exact same layout (2br & 2bth, sleeps 8) and updated too. Our newest venture, is a beautiful Gulf front penthouse (3) buildings away in Dunes of Crystal Beach. It's VRBO #800661 and is a 5br 4bth "Legend " of a property.

Why Randy Rintala chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

We love the Crystal Beach area due to the wide and un-crowded beaches and close proximity to a wide variety of shops and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is gulf front on a private beach. Also, located at the West end of Scenic Hwy 98 & close to Henderson Beach State Park which is just a 4 minute walk. This area of beach encompasses Destin's largest, most private, quiet, peaceful beach and very much like Destin was when we were just kids.

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

For starters, Randy was wonderful and made sure all details were in place for our trip, down to an early check-in upon our request. Dune Dynasty was a lovely condo and just steps from the beach. The beach service was a nice touch that allowed us to enjoy our time that much more without having to deal with carrying chairs and umbrellas every day. We had more than enough room to spread out in the condo and all the cooking accessories needed to prepare meals during the day. Location is key for us at the beach, so being close to all the shopping, restaurants, and activities was ideal. Overall, we are extremely pleased and will definitely book here again!!

One word...AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Destin the last 10 years and this condo was the best per our requirements. It has everything you can possibly think of and I'm a pretty particular person :). The condo was very clean and comfortable (it's hard for me to sleep in general and I slept like a baby here). We look forward to returning next year!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is spacious and kept very neat and clean. Great layout. The bunk beds in the hallway were definitely a plus. Furniture is well taken care of. Kitchen is stocked. We were very pleased with both the appearance and comfort of the condo.

The property felt very safe. The security and maintenance were friendly. Randy was professional and very helpful. We would definitely chose this property and condo again!
