Property description

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 was just purchased & updated. 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. Also, if a beach house works for you, we have VRBO #2054 located just a block away. It's a 3BR + tower bedroom w/(2) twin beds, 3 1/2 Bath FL beach cottage in Clipper Cove, again just one block away from these condos.

Year Purchased: 2010

Why Crystal Beach, Destin, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
