This condo has been completely redecorated and refurbished with new furniture, bedding, décor, drapes, blinds, all new appliances, and a very handy luggage cart just for this unit. We have also added an additional wicker seating set for the patio.

Our happy renters love the LOCATION of Crystal View on Old Hwy 98, the uncrowded beach, and the decor and spaciousness of the condo.

From the minute you walk in the door of Crystal View 304, you will experience that 'aaah' moment when you realize you booked the perfect place to serve as your vacation home for the next few days.

Crystal View is located directly across Scenic Hwy 98 from private beach access and hundreds of yards of empty beach. Only 16 units share this four-story building, so you will not share your pool, parking lot or beach area with hundreds or thousands of other renters as you would at high-rise condominiums. There is a CHARCOAL GRILL located in the rear of the property for guests to use.

ONLY 130 STEPS will take you from the door of this condo to your private beach access gate! That is less than many beach-front condos that are set further back. There is a public bathroom on the beach for your convenience.

You will be amazed at the breathtaking Gulf views from your kitchen, dining room, living room and master bedroom. The unit is 1,713 sqft. with three bedrooms, three baths, 10-foot ceilings, brand new travertine-like tile on the diagonal in the living areas, and wood-plank tiles in the bedrooms. This lovely condo is light and bright and decorated in relaxing tones of spa blue and beachy tan. The balcony alone is almost 400 sqft and wraps around the condominium with multiple seating areas for guests to enjoy a book, dine, or enjoy the Gulf views. One nice thing that sets this Crystal View unit apart from others is that you can see the pool from the back of our balcony, so you can call your family members in for dinner. Pool bathrooms are located just steps from the pool.

Crystal View is conveniently located on Scenic Hwy 98 approximately halfway between Destin Commons and Silver Sands Factory Stores, so you are only minutes away from shopping, the movie theater, and various restaurants -- an easy drive either way while avoiding the traffic on the main highway! Sandestin and the night-life it has to offer in Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard are also close-by. World-famous Pompano Joe's is a very, very short walk down the paved 5-mile bike/walking/jogging path.

The large MASTER BEDROOM has a king bed with a new pillow-top mattress with foam topper and cool-gel mattress pad and upscale PB linens, a walk-in closet, ceiling fan with lights, 32' LCD TV with built-in DVD, book collection in antique pine bookshelf, and IPod clock/radio. Most importantly, it has a giant balcony door with access to the balcony providing you with water views from the bed itself. The master bath has dual sinks, updated lights and faucets, a sunken tub and a separate walk-in shower.

The SECOND BEDROOM has a queen bed [new bedroom furniture as well] with a new plush-top mattress, also with foam topper and 'cool-gel' mattress pad and designer PB linens. Two large closets provide plenty of room for clothes and suitcases. Enjoy the 32' LCD with DVD player, the IPod clock/radio and the attached bathroom with shower with updated faucet and light fixture.

The THIRD BEDROOM sleeps six as it has two new bunk bed sets with twins on the top and new full plush mattresses on the bottom. Guests here will enjoy the 27' LCD TV, DVD player, and IPod clock/radio. Guests in this room use the adjacent hall bath with tub/shower combo and updated light and faucet.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook dinner for and serve 16 or more. In addition to the traditional items, and because I am a mom who needs these things, we have a slow cooker, waffle maker and electric griddle for those mornings when you need to cook 8 pancakes at a time! There is a a huge bar with 6 barstools, and a brand new pine PB dining set in the dining area that seats 6 with an adorable burlap-covered light fixture straight from the designer mags.

The living room features a sleeper sofa, a second sofa, and two more occasional chairs for plenty of seating while watching your favorite movie on the new Sony 47' LCD TV. Also included are a DVD player, assorted DVDs, a Sony micro-stereo IPod/CD/radio, and assorted CDs. Free wireless internet.

When we bought this unit, we replaced all of the furniture, decor, electronics, mattresses and bedding. This is not your grandma's condo where you are in a shotgun layout with one patio door at the end of a narrow, low-ceilinged, dark unit. The combo kitchen/dining/den area boasts 10 foot ceilings and a large balcony door and two additional huge windows. Stand anywhere in this room and see blue water out the windows. You cannot find a nicer 3 BR/3 BA unit of this size with this balcony and these views at this price point.

I know you will love the unit as much as we did when we walked in the first time and said 'aaah.' Please come and check us out!
