Great area and it was nice to be able to eat with restaurants within walking distance.

This is a nice property. We plan to return next year. As far as our particular condo (103); it definitely needs a thorough cleaning. The floors were sandy and furniture needed dusting. . The porch could use a good powerwashing. Had to wear shoes/sandals or our feet were literally black after walking barefoot out there. We will return but will try a different unit.

We liked the layout of the condo and had a positive experience.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. We only stayed for 3 days so the fees were a significant part of the total cost (about doubled the published rate). The condo was in good shape and the location was very nice. My only complaint is the lack of instructions. The ceiling fans did not work in the master bedroom or the main living area. We could also not get the TV to work in the master bedroom. I would guess they are in working order but after about a 1/2 hour of trying to figure them out it made more sense to just relax with out them. A cheat sheet on those thing would be helpful.

A very spacious, beautifully decorated condominium. The beach was close and just lovely!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very large condo with a wonderful wrap around outside space. The view of the ocean is not the best but the beach is a tiny walk away. Beautiful white sand and aquamarine waters! Small but sufficient pool. Parking is limited but there was always a space.

We loved our stay. So close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second summer in Destin. This property was great, comfortable, nice and clean. Only one request would be beach items such as floats, noodles, ect. Some of the other guest had these items and said they were provided. I bought on and left it at the property. Al in all a great stay.

We've been vacationing in Destin for 4 years now, and this was by far our favorite place to stay!! The condo is very spacious, the pictures don't do it justice! We had 3 families and plenty of room with each family having their own bathroom. It is beautifully decorated, neat, and clean. The location is extremely convenient to the beach, making the short walk across the street an easy one. The kitchen was nicely equipped with everything we needed to cook meals. The only problem we encountered was the parking. Although we had parking passes, there were not enough parking spaces to accommodate all guests. We had to park in handicap spaces and along the fence several times, but never got a ticket, so all was well. I highly recommend Crystal View 103!! We will definitely return!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you had a good time and loved the condo. We have never had parking issues before but there must have been a lot of families with multiple cars the week of the 4th.

Wonderful woops

  • 5 of 5

We actually ended up staying here by accident due to our reservations falling through in Panama City. We needed a last second rental and found this listing. We were in a pinch and called the managers to reserve the room. They were easy to reach, answered all of our questions and got our reservations though in a couple of moments, which is more than I can say for some otber managers on VRBO. We thought that the listing was too good to be true, but it wasn't. When we arrived at the condo, it was just as promised. We had a little dog and three seniors with disabilities in tow and they had no problems navigating the rooms. The condo had ample room for for everyone with beds to spare. The rooms were wonderful with comfortable beds and nice restrooms for each. The view from the covered porch was amazing, beckoning us down to the sugary, white sanded beaches with the tranquil, turquoise waves calmly rolling in. The beach was heavenly, except for the occasional jellyfish. While we were in town we partook of the nearby shops and restaurants, Pompano Joe's was nice, a little pricey but the serving portions more than made up for that. We took in the nearby free armed forces museums and airshows in Pensacola and Fort Walton which were free and great for the family. We also caught a dolphin tour and a parasailing trip in town that were excellent. Down the road in Panama City we went to a zoo and hung out at Wonderworks both of which were awesome for all ages. Overall the Destin area is centrally located on the Emarald Coast and the place to go if you want enjoy yourself. And thanks to the wonderful staff, great location and assortment of things to do this condo is a wonderful place to come home and relax or play in the sand. We will definitely look to come back and stay again.
