Served its purpose but needs updating...

  • 3 of 5

The condo was ok, it served its purpose but it needed some repairs & updates....the hall sink was stopped up so it was hard to wash your face before it filled up. The tv remotes were out of batteries. Otherwise it was a cute condo.

Old and outdated, felt dirty

  • 2 of 5

The location and being on the ground floor was the only reason we enjoyed our stay. There was carpet throughout the unit that was so stained and dirty looking that it made everything else feel dirty; I was so grossed out by it that I had to wear socks or shoes just to walk on it.

The outlet in the bathroom blew my curling iron and it worried me to plug anything else in it.

There was one measly chair and side table on the patio. The patio is somewhere we spend most of our time while at the condo but weren’t able to do so because there was no where for us to sit. I wouldn’t advertise how great this ground floor unit is until there’s actually a way to enjoy it. There also was no way to lock the unit up if you left from the back door, so all of our stuff sat vulnerable.

The kitchen could use some more pots, pans, and dishes. I tried cooking breakfast and would have to cook one item at a time just so I had a pan to use. The stove was electric and none of the eyes were level making it hard to cook things evenly. There was not a single wine glass.

The bedroom needs a new mattress, my husband was actually looking forward to leaving the beach because his back was bothering him so much.

Like I said, the location was great, being on the ground floor was also great but the quality of the unit was very poor. With the amount we paid you could easily update this unit.

Best Condo in Destin

  • 5 of 5

I booked this condo for Memorial Weekend a few months back for my wife and I for a long weekend getaway. The description was exactly what we got. Walk out the patio and onto the beach. The beach is a private beach exclusive to just Crystal Villas. Clean unit, plenty of room for just us. Crystal Villas is also located on a great part of beach drive convenient to restaurants and shopping. The inclusion of the beach chairs/umbrella into the package was nice as they set it up where ever you wanted.

With the exception of the storm moving in and the water being pretty rough, the place itself was what we expected and will highly recommend it to people we know!

Perfect location; unit needs TLC

  • 3 of 5

Very clean unit. Musty a/c odor (imagine with humidity, it can be a challenge); mattresses on master bed and bunk beds are terrible. Great property, ideally located. Private beach!

Great ocean front condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay. This was our second year at this condo. I would rate higher but the bedroom mattress should be replaced. John and Cameron (the guys that set up chairs/umbrellas) took great care of us. The location is great, close to everything. We will be back next year.

Good, but needs a few updates and a better pool.

  • 4 of 5

We booked this property last minute for our anniversary trip. The condo could definitely use a few updates and it would be perfect. There were two instances when we saw a roach in the living room and kitchen so I'd recommend getting pest treatment for the shelter owners. The dryer kept shooting out lint into the shower but everything worked properly. There was no fan in the master and the plug in fan gotten from the closet no longer works, so we bought a box fan to stay cool while asleep. The pool is indoors and was freezing the whole time due to not being in direct sunlight :(. lastly, I would get better patio furniture with a table to put your coffee or eat breakfast on.

Pros: wonderful view from the patio and it's a walkout room, clean grounds, clean pool, great beach service and you can rent paddle boards or kayaks. Condo is very beachy and loved the colors, bed was decent, plenty of towels, beach is super private! Easy area to drive in/out of and close to everything.
