Excellent location and cozy - this is the complete package

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay here this past week. It was clean, comfortable and just the right size. Everything we needed was here for cooking meals, cleaning/drying laundry, and setting up at the beach (chairs, beach mat, umbrella, boogie boards). Most importantly, it was super close to the beautiful beach - just a few minutes walk. We loved the flour-like white sand and were thankful to be able to spend lots of time soaking up the sun and ocean after a long Michigan winter. The ocean temperature was just fine for swimming in early April and the kids loved the boogie boards! The on-site pool was very nice and heated as well. The stretch of beach this unit is close to has no rocks, is crystal clear white sand and shallow for quite a ways out.

The owners had great communication and were very easy to work with. When we visit Destin again, we plan to book this same unit if it is available.

Great Location, very clean and comfortable, super close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

First, the owner was very responsive to all our needs and very friendly. We loved the condo, especially the bunk beds for the kids and the comfortable furnishings. It even came with a beach umbrella and chairs, which we used almost every day. The beach is way closer than we expected, just a two minute walk away. The pool/hot tub are even closers, directly across the street from the condo.

The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and spices. We were able to save some money by eating at home a few nights. For breakfast we preferred to go around the corner to Camille's cafe for coffee and breakfast burritos.

We definitely will be back next year, we highly recommend #123 Caribbean Dunes. You won't be disappointed.

Great location, beautiful beach, and clean condo and pool!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Caribbean Dunes the first week in June and had a great time! The condo was plenty spacious for our family of 4 (two boys, ages 6 and 8). The master bedroom was spacious and the bunk beds were a huge hit for my boys. The location is literally across the street from the pool, very close...a lot closer than some of the other units. It's also on a side street, so the road is not busy! The condo provided pool chairs, floats, and beach toys. The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of spices, coffee filters, EVOO, and all of the utensils you would need. I wish the pool deck was not as slippery, but the pool was immaculate and the hot tub was amazing! We almost spent more time at the pool than the ocean. You are located right beside Camille's, and EXCELLENT restaurant. The cafe is open from 7-5 and has breakfast sandwiches, cocktails, smoothies and live music. The kids loved it. The upstairs opens at 5 and has the best food I have ever had in Destin. You have to try the burger and the amazon sushi. The condo provided soap, shampoo, conditioner, detergent...the list goes on. To be able to stay in the elite Crystal beach for this price during the month of June was AWESOME!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location.Conviently stocked with the nessities for the kitchen, bath, bedroom, and laundry.Worked perfect for a family of 5 (2 adults to 3 kids 11-8 yrs) Pool area is just across the street and well maintained. Two beach access ways about 5 minutes or less walking. The owner was wonderful to work with. Always responded quickly to any emails we sent. Would defiantly stay here again and recommend to others.

Great location...great place

  • 4 of 5

This property is right across the street from Crystal Beech public access. The beech here and all along in the Destin area is just so beautiful. The location is convenient to all the necessities and all the non-essentials as well, shopping, go carting, mini golf, LOTS of eating establishments, etc., etc. The WiFi leaves something to be desired given the fact that it is cable modem. The space is nice but small for anything but a couple and maybe a couple of children. There are bunk beds in the concept and a queen bed in the bedroom. There is a small covered porch with a couple of chairs, but it faces a street...but it's also the street that you cross to get to the pool which is really nice. Overall 4 stars....enjoyable stay...the owners were great in all transactions.
