About Lori Smith

Been going to the beach for many years and this unit has it all, directly on the beach, and location, location , location!! On the west end of old 98 so is convenient to everything. Professionally decorated.

Lori Smith purchased this condo in 2003

Why Lori Smith chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

This unit is directly on the beach. Not across the street with a view or angled where you have to lean out to see the water, but right on the sand! Panoramic views of the whole gulf! Its beautiful!

What makes this condo unique

Flat screen TV's, Blu Ray players, WiFi, stereo, beautiful views of the beach and ocean, sleeps 8 with two bedrooms and a loft. Close to the outlet mall and the most beautiful beach in the world!! This complex is family friendly without the inconveniences of a high rise. 3 Floors, elevator down and a short walk through the breezeway and you are at the beach. No long walks to take the kids up for lunch, no hike to the parking lot when it is time to go to dinner.

Nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice condo! Well furnished, the only thing I would suggest is providing more bath towels. We really enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful time!

We really love this property. Perfect for two families. The beach is large and never crowded like Holiday Isle can get. Free beach chairs and umbrellas are a great addition!! We will be back!!

Great location, beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

Location on the beach was wonderful along with the quiet and beautifully decorated condo. I was concerned about previous travelers cleaning comments but was pleasantly surprised to find no issues. Beds were very comfortable and the kids really enjoyed the toys and boards available to use at the beach. We had issues with the televisions but was quickly fixed by maintenance after the owner was called. We had a MAJOR issue with the umbrella and chair Twilight beach service that has a contract with Crystal Sands condos. This service does not come with this specific condo and must be paid out of pocket. We were threatened and harassed by this companies worker on the beach in front of our children and other vacationers. The owner was called and the issue resolved as we were left alone by the worker for the rest of the week. Unfortunately this ruined our Destin vacation experience and we will not return. However, the condo and location were lovely.

Wonderful beach front stay!

  • 5 of 5

This Crystal Sands condo overlooks the beach & if you purchase the beach service umbrella/chairs for each day you are there, you know when the chairs are being setup each morning & you can normally see dolphins early in the morning from the beautiful view! It's close to town for convent places to eat. The imagination that went into decorating this condo is so creative and comfortable!! The convenient amenities there also make your stay more enjoyable.

Not what we expected!

  • 2 of 5

We arrived to a dirty condo (had to purchase broom to remove sand when we hadn't been to the beach yet) the ceiling fan upstairs was caked with dust (have pictures to prove.) The location was great, right on the beach. We've been to destin several years and will continue to go but will find another condo!

Owner's Response: I would have appreciated very much having the opportunity to correct this issue for this guest. I state clearly in my listings Hospitality APP that my cleaning company and I have a 100% satisfaction guarantee offered to every guest if they will contact me within 4 hours of arrival. Someone would have come and corrected that immediately. I was only notified they were not satisfied with their stay after they had departed and after I emailed them that I would have to withhold money from their deposit for non-compliance with the check-out procedures and for a sheet they spilled liquid makeup on and the stain could not be removed. I clearly state my check out procedures in the APP and again in a personal email prior to every guests arrival. I only charge a guest for this when my cleaning service charges me. It is my desire for every guest to go away happy about their stay at our property. Every guest has all this information prior to arrival along with my personal email and my personal cell number that I have with me 24 hours a day. Again, I would have appreciated being given the opportunity to correct this issue.

Nice place and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and everything worked. It was well stocked for our needs. The loft area is not real private but it was great for the kids and their friends that came. Lori is quick to respond if you need anything. We will be coming back to this condo.
