Why Property Manager chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

We have been loyal Atlantic Ocean fans who were convinced by friends (also owners at Crystal Sands) to visit the Destin area, specifically Crystal Sands to experience the Gulf. We were sold the moment we arrived. Steps to the white sand, clear water with blue/green hues, chair service, fresh seafood, marinas, and plenty of water/outdoor activities to choose from with year round options made Crystal Sands an easy choice.

What makes this condo unique

104A offers direct unobstructed water views. Unit also faces old remaining pier pilings, vacationers favorite for hanging hammocks, snorkeling, and watching flying friends such as brown pelicans and seagulls who stop for breaks on top of the pier. Parking and pool steps from unit eases transitions with kids, pool toys, luggage, groceries, and shopping bags.

Crystal Sands is tucked in the Crystal Beach area of Destin.

My husband and I had a great time! The view of the beach is amazing and super close. Weather was fabulous! It is located close to everything but not in too busy of an area. The condo was very clean and so cute!! Everything is like brand new!! The property manager was great to work with, she was really organized. She responded to all my questions quickly. I would recommend this condo and we hope to stay again next year!

Very Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a few issues-clean dishes were left in dishwasher so we were not sure full set of dishes were available. The mattress was extremely firm, made my back hurt after a full week, and there was no fitted sheet for the bed. This seemed very strange. But, location and all else was fantastic....

Owner's Response: Kathy, Thank you for bringing those issues to our attention. I passed the message along to onsite management with hopes this does not happen again. For anyone in the future, please let us or the onsite management team know of any issues right away so we can have it taken care of day 1. I apologize for those things being overlooked. It is not acceptable. Kind regards, Stephanie

Nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at Crystal Sands for the last 12 years. This is one of the nicest units we have ever stayed in. We love a first floor unit, because with small children it makes it much easier to go back and forth to the beach. The hall bunks are great for the kids also. The property manager was great to work with. We got a really great rate. I wish it was not already booked for our vacation dates this year or we would book it again.

Great Retreat from the Real World!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful month-long stay! We found everything as pictured by the owners except for a new bedspread and rug in the living room. Since it was just 60 short steps to the beach you could go many times during the day--a quick walk on the beach, relax in the sun, read a little, watch the waves and don't forget the magnificent sunsets. We absolutely loved playing house in their condo. Would love to return.
