About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in beautiful Crystal Beach on the western end of Scenic 98, Caribbean Dunes offers the perfect complex for a relaxing family vacation. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is immaculate, comfortable and excellently appointed with everything that you need for a wonderful stay. The complex has a beautiful pool with hot tub, and the easy beach access is just a few steps away. Master bedroom/bathroom downstairs, 2nd queen bedroom/bathroom upstairs in private loft. There is a partial beach view from the balcony, and a beach view from the upstairs loft bedroom.

Crystal Beach has been a favorite spot for many for several years because of the sheer beauty of the beach, the low traffic and small crowds. Caribbean Dunes is conveniently located near the Destin Commons, Rave Theatres, Bass Pro Shop and many restaurants. Shopping options are numerous at the Commons, and the Silver Shells shopping outlet mall is located just minutes to the east. There are many local favorites along Scenic 98. Camille's is less than a block away and Captain Daves, Pompano Joe's, and the Crab Trap are just a short drive up the road to the east as well.

Henderson Beach access is directly across the street from the condo building. One block to the left is the Shores at Crystal Beach access (across from Camille's) and provides a larger public beach area, showers, restrooms, and chair/umbrella rental in the summer months.

We thoroughly loved our time here!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly loved our time here! We have stayed in this beautiful cheery condo before and LOVE the changes and updates you have made! The new floors are beautiful upstairs and down, and the new stainless steel kitchen appliances are wonderful. We always find everything we need in the kitchen and enjoy having morning coffee and breakfast on the large balcony looking at the palm trees and ocean view. It is such a great location for restaurants and shopping nearby but located in the very quiet and quaint Crystal Beach neighborhood just one building down from Camille‘s restaurant. Love their sidewalk café for lunch! The condo is literally a one minute few steps to the beach if you go directly across the street, or you can go to the left or right just a couple of condos down for a much larger beach access that is typically less crowded. The access on the left even has a pavilion with restrooms, showers to rinse off and picnic tables. We will definitely come here again – just always wish we could stay longer!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, did not have any of the issues noted by previous reviews. Appliances are brand new, plenty of linens and clean dishes, and outlets worked great.

Great proximity to the beach and while upstairs is a loft bedroom, it is private, you can't see anyone upstairs from the bottom. All 2 bedrooms in this complex have the same floor plan.

Will definitely stay here again!

NOT a 2 bedroom

  • 3 of 5

Positives: This unit is close to the beach (5 min walk), the AC works great, pool is wonderful, W/D in unit, easy parking and you can walk to Destin Commons.

There are some negatives... this unit is a one bedroom plus loft. The loft is a true open loft so you can hear everyone and everything happening in kitchen and living room. The kitchen needs more dishes, pans are old/rusty and there isn't any tubberware for leftovers. The dishwasher runs but doesn't fully clean dishes. Outlets are loose so chargers would fall out. Overall is was pretty clean but upstairs bath needed a little more work. Lastly, there weren't any blankets for pull-out sofa but we did call and they were brought to us the same day.

I would probably stay here again but wish I would had known I rented a one bedroom plus loft in the first place. Hope this review helps! Destin area has beautiful beaches and plenty to keep you busy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. The issue with the outlets, appliances and dishes have already been addressed. There are brand new stainless appliances, cookware and outlets have been replaced. All of the 2 bedroom units in Caribbean Dunes have the same floor plan with the loft bedroom upstairs.

Great proximity to the beach but that's about the only positive.

  • 3 of 5

Great proximity to the beach but the condo is outdated. The condo was not very clean when we arrived. A wad of hair on the shower wall in the loft bathroom. Candy wrappers and a Barbie doll with clothes behind the couch. If you intend on using the pull out couch as a sleeper then bring your own blanket because the paper thin sheets are not enough. Short on wash cloths and towels as well. Did laundry every day for that reason alone. The kitchen was so so. Laminated counter tops, a dish washer than doesn't do a good job and a stove with tilted burners that don't cook evenly. Absolutely no cleaning supplies provided. So if you want to clean the kitchen counters your stuck with buying your own supplies. Absolutely no condiments in the kitchen so you have to buy salt, pepper, oils whatever you need to cook with. And bring your own dishwasher soap as well. I felt like for the price we could have rented a newly renovated condo like the ones our next door neighbors had, it was beautiful.

Owner's Response: I am sorry the condo did not meet your expectations. The cleaning issue has been addressed and a new cleaning crew is now in place. Anything less than spotless in unacceptable! As to the lack of adequate linens, I wish I had been notified during your stay so that it could have been addressed at the time. Thank you for bringing this to my attention; it has been remedied and the extra linens are located in the top of the master bedroom closet. For future reference, there is a phone number provided in the unit for the resort manager should these type of needs arise during your stay. Food and cleaning supplies are not provided as part of this rental unit, however a starter packet of liquid dish soap and dishwasher detergent should have been provided in the kitchen as these are standard items. Thank you for your feedback as we work to make this unit the best it can be for future renters.

Nice condo !

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice, clean, could almost see the ocean from balcony. Something that o missed in the description was that one bedroom and bath is upstairs ( like 15 stairs). This was great for us...could be an issue for small children.

My only complaint and reason I would not stay here again was the beach space. It is simple to get to the public beach-right across street. However, once you get to beach you have a very small space to share with a ton of people. The two condos across the street have private beaches with chair and umbrella rentals. They will not let you go onto property to place your things behind them even. In order to be able to set up our chairs and small umbrella we had to get up at 5:30am to reserve our space. It's very tight. Many people with large tents that took a lot of space. There are multiple large vacation rental homes along street that bring a lot of people to beach to share with.

Once again condo was nice. If it weren't for the beach we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi Dawn, I'm so glad you enjoyed the condo during your stay! Should you decide to stay at Caribbean Dunes in the future, I wanted you to know that the "Shores at Crystal Beach" access point - one block to the left of the condo building - is a much larger access area with plenty of public beach space, and umbrella/chair rental available in the summer. You are correct that the "Shirah Street" access can get crowded! Also, the Henderson Beach park is a good option for seclusion, but is a little bit of a farther walk. Take care and we would love to have you stay with us again in the future!

So much space!

  • 5 of 5

I have a two year old and was able to let her sleep while hosting a small get together! There were a couple of things that could use some attention, but nothing that warranted a phone call to southern resorts! It's literally a one minute walk to the beach and we had ocean views. The pool is a nice size and was never exceptionally full. It's a fairly quiet property. We couldn't find bed pillows for the pull out bed. I would like to suggest that the company consider more than just two bed pillows for the beds. It may also be a good idea to advertise that 1) the second "bedroom" is a loft with an open half wall over the living room and that 2) the stairs to the loft are rather steep. I can see that being an unwelcome surprise for someone with bad knees or an elderly guest. All in all, this was a beautiful vacation. We never heard neighbors and just enjoyed the beach and being with family.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! I will request the property manager look into the pillows, there should be extra pillows in the master bedroom closet. We hope to have you back as a return guest!
