About Matthew

Our beach get away has been perfect for our family. My wife and I have been married for 20 years and have been to Crystal Sands every year. We have two children and have had plenty of room.

Matthew purchased this condo in 2014

Why Matthew chose Crystal Beach

Location Location Location! You stay here once and you will know why this property is so popular. If you like the beach you feel you have struck it rich. Closest to the ocean you can get. Easily walk down with your coffee or back up for lunch, bathroom etc. This third floor unit makes your vacation one you won't forget.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We Had a wonderful stay at A308. The unit was decorated very nice. The beds where very comfortable. This unit is perfect location to elevators etc Hardly no walking at all ! The patio has also been redone can't wait to go back. This was the nicest unit we have ever stayed in at Destin on the Beach. All the furniture was even brand new Stephanie

On the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Unit was clean and convenient to the beach. The loft 2 bedroom area worked out great for parents and their small children. Older complex so while clean, neat and met needs don't come expecting high end or you will be disappointed. But came for the beach and sun and could not be more convenient.

Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Destin 4 times at different locations each time. This one was our favorite so far as far as location on the main drag. It was far enough away to avoid the traffic but close enough to get to anything within 10-15 mins. A lot of good shopping, restaurants, and a grocery store just 2 mins away. The condo itself is nice. The kids have their upstairs space far away from the master bedroom which is nice. The view of the beach from the balcony was perfect. Walked right out of the condo building to the beach in less than a minute. We are big on cooking so one of the most impressive things about this condo was the amount of dishes and variety of cookware and storage containers. That was really nice and far superior to any other condo we've stayed in.

Amazing views- little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying in 308A Crystal Sands for a week over spring break (April 2017). This was a new unit for us and it had been 5 years since we had been in Destin so we had high hopes. Everything was as advertised and expected. I love that the building is only three stories tall, rather than a huge high rise. The pool was heated and wonderful. The unit itself was clean and well stocked with kitchen items, coffee maker, plenty of towels for each bathroom, etc. (You may want to bring additional toilet paper and garbage bags-you get two of each but depending on how much time you spend there you may need more.) The furniture in the living room is comfortable as are the beds, and plenty of furniture on the deck to enjoy the views. I was a little surprised that the master bedroom was located at the front door rather than on the ocean side but we still got to enjoy a ton of amazing views. We saw dolphins 5 different times during our stay and enjoyed the fighter jets flying overhead from the near by base. The second bedroom is located in the loft area with the second bathroom (great space and set up) and the third bedroom is accessed off of that. This was not a problem as my sons each took a room but something to be aware of if you are housing more than one family. I would stay here again in a minute. Matthew was great with communication and making sure we had everything we needed. Thanks!
