Great location! Great amount of space for our family of 5. Love the large patio

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and it's location. The condo has a nice lay out and plenty of space. The kitchen was well equiped for cooking and the large patio was the perfect place to eat most of our meals, while enjoying the view of the sea. The beach is great, and we enjoyed swimming and snorkeling. I would highly recommend this location.

Great location on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The property is situated just a few feet from the beach, with its own private patio which is quite large and has great views of the water. The master bedroom on the second floor also has great views of the water. You can walk to a more private beach area right in front of the condo, or a short walk down the path/beach takes you to the Sapphire resort area with a bar and grill (food till 5pm). You can rent water equipment there as well. There is a good bit of wildlife right in the condo area. There are large iguanas and birds all around. Interior of the unit is great, and has three full baths including one on the main level which is good for coming back from the beach. Overall highly recommend this unit for a stay literally on the beach.

The location is perfect! Our children snorkeled right off the beach!

  • 4 of 5

You can not beat the location! The property is somewhat outdated. The Murphy bed was not so nice. The other beds were fine.

Location was amazing. Condo was not taken care of.

  • 4 of 5

Sapphire Beach, Crystal Cove, is the perfect location to vacation. My problem was the very dated and very used condo. While very large, the condo needs a lot of work to be a good value to renters. The price per week was to much considering the condition of the condo. The owner is very responsive. Getting back to you within the hour of a call or text. Very nice man. Again, lacking in the caring department of basic upkeep. I would not rent this condo again in this condition.
