About Tami

We love owning this condo! It is a wonderful location. It has easy access to both ends of Destin and is on a quiet end of Old Scenic Highway 98. There is not a lot of traffic in front of the unit but it has easy access to shopping and restaurants.

We were enamored with the beautiful white beaches and emerald green waters of Destin as soon as we arrived. We have seen a large amount of development in the town but when you are staying on the beach, it is still Paradise by the Sea!

Why Tami chose Crystal Beach

Crystal Sands is a well maintained, centrally located property. There is an on-site office to answer any questions and provide maintenance for any issues. The beach is beautiful with easy access from this first floor unit, No stairs or elevators need to get to the boardwalk!

I have vacationed in Florida and Destin has by far the most beautiful beaches!

What makes this condo unique

The town is small but has many amenities from a water park to fishing, shopping to golf. There is something for everyone and all within a few miles. In addition to great restaurants both on the water and off, there are over 18 golf courses, several large shopping malls, even an outlet mall!

Walking down on the docks allows you to see the day's catch from many boats, have dinner on the water or see a free concert.

There is so much to do in Destin one could easily spend a month or more especially if you love the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have never seen such beautiful white sand. The ocean was great. I can walk out the door and smell the salt and feel the ocean breeze and walk down the steps to feel the sand! Your condo couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Anything you could need is all right here.

We suggest going to the Veranda Restaurant at Henderson Park Inn. It was incredibly romantic and definately the best meal I have ever had.

Absolutely loved the place as we have in the past. We have booked this room a few times now and am ready to book for the 2017 season already. Super owner and great to deal with. Will continue to book this room with the owner every year in the future we make it to Destin.

Great Location & very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation at this condo, very accommodating for our family and clean. Stepped out right onto the patio overlooking the dunes with the beach right there.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home.

Modest changes could make this a 5-star!

  • 4 of 5

The location is gorgeous, but the apartment needs some minor modifications in order to make it a beach treasure. Worst of all is that there is no way to keep the doors (beachside) open during the evening/night with safety. A simple fix of sliding wrought iron or even safety brackets that extend to allow the door to stay open 3-4 inches would allow you to hear the surf and still feel safe. Other updating would be nice (clean comfortable futon to sleep in front area as opposed to the bunks) but all if that is secondary to being able to enjoy the sound if the ocean. If you don't care about that, though, it really is a beautiful beach - and so much nicer than the high rises.

Christmas in Destin

  • 5 of 5

Another absolutely wonderful stay in your condo! It was just like arriving at our second home, totally comfortable. We both were instantly aware of the overall update of the unit. Well appointed, we cooked several meals in your kitchen. As always, we spent as much time as possible on the beach. Great walks in the sunshine on Christmas Day. As a matter of fact , several ! The only drawback , was having to leave. Thank you again for a wonderful stay!!!
