About The Owner

I have been an investor in the Destin Area since the early 90's. I currently own 7 condos from Destin to Blue Mountain Beach.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Crystal Beach

GREAT location in the heart of Destin but no high rises in the area..and right on the beach. NO roads to funny angled view.

Dirty and UGLY!

  • 2 of 5

We were and still are less than satisfied with this unit for what we paid. Pictures were deceiving.

Owner's Response: I would respectfully request anyone reading this to know that this party never communicated or specified a comment during or after his stay until he unloaded publicly...and I still don't know what his version of ugly is. Dirty is never acceptable, but I would have taken care if that immediately.

Our stay was great, the condo was centrally located so we could get to everything we wanted. The Condo was beautiful, great floor plan and the deck on the back was a perfect view of the ocean. We can't wait to go back, I our only regret was that we did not book the condo for 2 weeks. The Beach was great my family and I had so much fun, just wish we could have stayed longer.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property for a week and didn't want to leave! The beach was gorgeous even despite the bad weather we had....which is super rare. We definitely want to come back and stay at this property again. I wouldn't change locations, accommodations or anything! What a great vacation spot! Everything is just moments away and in my opinion this beach is the prettiest.

Stay - 4/22/17 to 4/29/17

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I have taken our kids to Destin for over 40 years. Now they are grown and we go by ourselves same. The condo was perfect for the just the two of us and, of course, would have gotten a larger one had our grandchildren been with us. But we were disappointed in the pool. The condo (Unit 214A) had everything we needed.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the condo. Yes, the pool is your basic pool, nothing fancy. More of a beach condo. Thanks for coming!
