About Suzanne Novak

Hello! My name is Suzanne Novak. As a busy Realtor with a hectic schedule, and a husband who coached in the NFL, we needed a place to escape the stresses of our jobs. One trip to Destin and we were hooked! The moment we set eyes on the Powdery White Sand Beaches, and the Crystal Clear waters of the Emerald Coast, we knew we would never need to go to Mexico again! We found our Caribbean at Crystal Beach and Grand Caribbean East.

Our stresses melt away when we are at this condo. Get up in the morning, enjoy your coffee on the balcony, check email with Free WiFi and then walk across the street to the beach!

We come back to our condo for a snack and then head back to the beach. Sometimes we shop and sight-see but we love to be perched on our chair enjoying the spectacular wild life show at hand. Dolphin, pelicans, and many different species of fish.

Suzanne Novak purchased this condo in 2013

Why Suzanne Novak chose Crystal Beach

This View Is Spectacular! An end unit, on the corner, GCE #301 has an unobstructed view of the Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Grand Caribbean East is a perfect location just steps to the beach. It is an extremely well maintained building. With a hardworking property manager on sight, the pool and hot tub are clean, the grounds are impeccable and the landscape lush.

What makes this condo unique

The View, The View, The View! Grand Caribbean East 301 is an End unit. This means when you are on your balcony, you have total privacy and a great view of the Gulf and the strip. You can see the Gulf from the Kitchen, Sofa, and Bedrooms! Enjoy watching the dolphin swim by or the great fishing boats! There is always a beautiful show to be seen!

Relaxing holiday on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was comfortable, relaxing and worry-free. We didn't have ideal weather, but we went to the beach for long walks every day and we enjoyed sitting by the pool. Our condo was very well equipped, clean and had a quiet deck with a beautiful view. Suzanne was very welcoming and was a text away to answer questions. Her responses were prompt and helpful. She provided us with general knowledge about the area and things to see and we did it all! I definitely plan to return!

Perfect location, beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

From the initial booking conversation with the owner we knew this would be the perfect home-away-from-home for our family vacation. We wanted a property that was perfect for two kids, away from the typical "spring break" environment and that's exactly what we got here. The condo was meticulously maintained, the right amount of space, and in a perfect location. Waking up and sipping a cup of coffee on the balcony while watching the waves crash was exactly what we wanted. Close to everything yet quiet and peaceful. We will absolutely be staying here again.

Another day in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Condo was clean and had a fully equipped kitchen. It was nice to meet the owner. We are upset that we are unable to stay the upcoming year due to a conflict. Hopefully it will be available the following year.

What an amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay - this condo comes with everything you need (and more!) so thankful for the beach chairs and umbrella - we went to the beach every day! Suzanne is a great communicator and extremely helpful - and is just a text away if you have any questions! This location is perfect! We enjoyed walks on the beach every morning and night! The hot tub and pool were at perfect temperatures! The king size bed in the master bedroom is one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on! Breakfast on the balcony every morning! Can’t wait to return!

The unit is perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this unit for a week each of the last 4 years. The location is perfect, the unit is very well equipped and very comfortable, the configuration of the unit allows for each bedroom to have a private bathroom and the unit is always clean upon arrival. The unit is perfect for me. I hope to make it 5 years in a row next year.
