Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Wonderful first floor unit, with view of the Gulf, located in quaint, quiet Crystal Beach. Walk from the patio, across Scenic Gulf Drive, and through the beach entrance to the beautiful white sand beach and warm, turquoise waters of the Gulf. Adjacent to Henderson Beach National shore.

After a day at the beach, relax by the pool (heated seasonally) and oudoor spa, where there is wi-fi internet access. Or stroll down the sidewalk for a bite at Camilles. There are numberous other dining options within walking distance - from upscale dining at the Inn at Cystal Beach to more relaxed options such as Olive Garden, Outback, Chili's and Applebee's. And if shopping is your desired post-beach activity, we are within walking distance to Destin Commons and a 5-10 minute drive to the famous Silver Sands Factory Outlet. Big Kahuna's, the Track and numberous golf courses are also close by. There is so much to do in Destin, it will be hard to choose.

Our unit is very clean, well maintained, and has many updates, including granite kitchen counters, tiling, fixtures, paint, and furniture. Features include a king-size bed in master bedroom, bunk area, pull-out couch (sleeps six total), and jacuzzi tub in bath. Electronic keyless entry. BRING YOUR LAPTOP, WE HAVE WI-FI IN THE UNIT. Ideal for couples and small families. Please no smoking, no pets. Please note that we do not rent to persons under 25.

Please do not forget to read our reviews. We have many happy renters.

About Michele Hamilton

Hi, we are Todd and Michele Hamilton of Holliston, MA (a suburb of Boston). We purchased our condo at Caribbean Dunes in 2003. We fell in love with the area 5 years earlier, when we came to the Panhandle for the first time for a temporary job assignment. We continued to vacation in Destin and decided to purchase our own home and share it with other beach lovers.

Why Michele Hamilton chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

After looking at property for more than a year, we decided to purchase a home in our favorite neighborhood. We love Crystal Beach - it is quiet, close to Henderson Park, has lots of single family homes, quaint neighborhoods and no high-rises. We chose Caribbean Dunes specifically because of its location close to two public beach entrances and Henderson Park; we like the archectual style of the building, the well maintained property, the tall ceilings and well designed units. Most importantly, our unit affords us a view of the Gulf.

What makes this condo unique

Our home at Caribbean Dunes is located just steps from the beach, and yet we are within walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants and shops. We are close to championship golf courses, Big Kahunas, the Track, Destin Commons, Baytowne Wharf, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, and a variety of water sports. There is also biking, hiking and canoeing in the area.

Nice condo perfect for 4

  • 4 of 5

Across the street from two public beach accesses. Nice to be able to walk out the patio door and onto the walking path. Close to shopping and restaurants. Condo was nicely decorated, very comfortable for us and our two kids with a pool and hot tub. Only downside is you could hear the people above us.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

I took my daughters, 17 yr and 13 yr, to Destin for Spring Break. We really liked the condo. It is nicely decorated and in a great quiet location. The owners have a guest book that has information about the area, restaurants and things to do which was really helpful. It has places to eat or rent bikes or water sports equipment that are with in walking distance. I enjoyed waking up in the morning, sitting on the front porch with a glass of orange juice in the sun looking at the ocean. The pool area is also really nice. The water temp was perfect.

The condo is right across the road from the beach but the beach is really small due to the condos on each side of it. We went to Henderson state park one day. The beach there is awesome. The other days we biked down to beaches along old 98. We had a great time. The price was great. We would stay here again if we were coming to Destin. The owner is very responsive and very easy to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for writing a review, we appreciate it. We are happy you enjoyed your vacation and our home at Caribbean Dunes. Crystal Beach is special; quiet but with plenty of activities close by. I agree that during high volume weeks, the public beach across the street can be crowded. There is a larger beach access at the other end of the property, or I often walk down the beach to Henderson Park or set up in a lower volume area along the beach. Luckily, there is plenty of beach in Destin. I hope you will consider us for your next trip to Destin. Warmly, Michele Hamilton

Close to the beach !

We love these condos. Second time we have stayed here. We have had a different condo both times, but all about the same set up. Super close to the beach! Nice quiet area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We appreciate your taking the time. We will take that idea of a larger TV under advisement. My husband agrees with you. I want my kids to be away from the TV, in the sunshine. Catch 22... Warmly, Michele

Perfect quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle. Steps away from the perfect beach. Bike rental a block away for a nice ride down old hwy 98. Early birds may like breakfast at Anglers on the porch and watch fishermen on the pier. Best dinner by far is Camille's.

Great condo in the perfect location at Crystal Beach. Convenient excess to the beach and right on the greenway /sidewalk that runs the length of Scenic 98. Also you can set on the porch and see the gulf of Mexico. We'll definitely be back. Great place to relax.The owner Michele was great to work with. Thanks, Richard
