Crystal Sands is perfectly located on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Unit 105B.. How I love thee...We have stayed here years ago and loved it! The perfect family condos are here at Crystals Sands. Our unit was perfection. Everything we needed was ad our fingertips. But the best was having a ground unit and being just a few feet from the gorgeous white sands and emerald waters. I can't say enough. This will be our spot every year. Our contact person/owner was prompt and precise on getting all of our information. Thank you Mrs. Daniel!.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo. The building is a little older but the condo is lovely and was updated nicely. Great views and you couldn't get any closer to the beach. July is a crowded time to go but we always enjoyed sitting in the chairs included in the rental. Beautiful sunsets. The cost was reasonable and allowed our family to have a wonderful vacation without breaking the bank.

Beautiful condo with a fabulous view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo located on the first floor. Open your door, and you're just steps to the beach. Convenient to everything. We hope to stay here again!

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)
