Clean, Conveniently Located

  • 5 of 5

I have never taken the time to write a review before, but I felt it was necessary after our visit to Crystal Sands. To begin with, Donna was very prompt in returning emails and staying in touch to let me know when payments were received. When we arrived, we found the condo to be just as pictured on the website. It was very clean and the beach/flamingo theme added a touch of fun. I am an extremely picky traveler (slightly OCD in regards to cleanliness), so for me to feel that the accommodations were clean is a huge thing! The convenience of being on the first floor was a definite plus. We were able to leave the sand toys and boogie boards on the patio without ever bringing all of the extra sand into the room. With two children, it was so helpful to walk out, down a flight a steps, and immediately be on the beach in the provided chairs. In regards to the noise level mentioned by another reviewer- I would recommend bringing a fan or sound machine to help with the noise level. We had our sound machine and it helped filter out the noise (normal talking, walking, etc.) of other guests on the property. The view from the patio is amazing! I would certainly book this property again in the future with no reservations. Thank you, Donna, for sharing your lovely condo. Our family had a pleasant vacation, and many good memories were made.

Awesome view and location!

  • 4 of 5

To wake up to that view everyday and just be able to walk out the door to the beach was fantastic!! Great week of weather. Saw dolphins almost everyday!

Clean and Florida cozy! I'd stay here again

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

PROS: Condo is just as pictures show. The updates (granite countertops, tile floors, and appliances) add a nice touch of comfort. The beds were plenty comfy, washer and dryer were great additions, and double bathroom was convenient. The absolute best detail is walking out the patio doors and being right on the dunes and seeing the ocean! It takes less than a minute to be sitting in the provided lounge chairs (those chair guys work their tails off, so go tip them at the snowcone stand) and soaking up the beauty of the beach! So close that we and the kids could go back to the condo for all our needs. There is a kiosk for water sports right next to the condo building (I suggest parasailing with them). The beach never felt crowded and was perfect for digging, swimming, boarding, crabbing, chilling, and sunning! The first floor condos are a must here, the convenience just can't be beat! The pool is small, but a nice place for kids to practice their snorkeling and get out of the sand for a bit.

CONS: thin walls and ceiling, we could hear footsteps above, neighbors talking and snoring, easy solution would be to go third floor, but you lose first floor convenience (we didn't spend much time indoors, but felt we should mention this for those people who might on their trip)

Lovely condo with a breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a wonderful time in this condo! It looks exactly like the pictures. We were so comfortable here. Walking out the back door to go to the beautiful beach was just so convenient especially with my 3 young boys. We are looking forward to staying here again in the future! Thank you Donna for letting us make family vacation memories at your beautiful condo! We had the best time! 😊

Great unit & great view

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean & the view from the patio was spectacular. It was nice to be able to go directly to the unit without checking in at an office. We will definitely make a return visit. Our only suggestion is that a curtain be put up in the bedroom over the blinds because alot of light comes in at night from the street light outside the unit. The owner provided all the information we needed and answered all our questions. This is a perfect place to get away for peace & quiet.

Great stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The listing was accurate regarding the location as well as the photos accurately reflected the appearance and amenities. It was clean and well maintained. This was my first time to rent through vrbo.com. The owner was so easy to work with and answered all my questions and concerns. I look forward to working with her again and staying at her property.
