Caribbean Dunes at Crystal Beach

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Affordable accomodations in a million dollar location. Cross the street to the beach, or stay at the pool just down the sidewalk. Located on the quiet western end of the Old Highway 98 Beach Road.

Caribbean Dunes is an ideal location for a peaceful and quiet family vacation. This second floor corner unit offers a great gulf and western view. King sized bed in the bedroom, Queen sleeper, and crew quarters (bunks) in the hallway.

Public Beach access is just across the street, and the pool is steps down the sidewalk. The new Destin Commons outdoor shopping Mall is three blocks away and has a theatre, Johnny Rocket's, Hard Rock Cafe, Marble Slab Creamery, Starbucks, Build-a-Bear Workshop, and many other shops.

Bonefish Grille, O'Charley's, TGIFridays, and the Outback are close by in addition to Sonic, Cracker Barrel and Olive Garden. The Silver Sands Shopping Outlets are about five minutes away and has stores too numerous to mention.

But make sure that you try the local favorites of Pompano Joes, Captain Daves, or the Crab Trap which are all located down the beach road to the east.

Camille's (formerly Tony's by the Sea) is just down the sidewalk for gourmet coffees, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Golfing opportunities are numerous with Indian Bayou, Regetta Bay, Emerald Bay and Seascape, plus a driving range and executive course, in addition to the Sandestin courses.

No Smoking, Please.

This was our first stay in Destin after several years of going to Daytona Beach. The condo was good. It was located across the street from the ocean on a pedestrian friendly street. The pool at the condo was very nice and well kept. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. My mother and I traveled with 2 children and the beach access was right across the street. My Mother is 76 and is very active but we struggled with having a place to sit chairs and umbrella on the beach. The very very small area that was available to us was extremely crowded. We had to walk along the beach to get to a place that was available to us. We were asked to leave on two different occasions because they claimed it to be a private property. I think it is wrong for condos to be able to claim this property to be private and people that are there to treat you like you are less than them since you are not the guest of that condo.

It was a lovely quieter place to stay. We enjoyed our stay with the exception of beach access and availability.

Couldn't ask for better

  • 5 of 5

We used to stay in the Sandestin area, but we don't plan on returning--EVER--because we like it hear so well. We've stayed here three times and plan to stay again.

Don't let the fact that this isn't "right on the beach" dissuade you. I have two kids under 5, and we never had problems with them (a) with their safety crossing the street as it's a pedestrian-friendly street (b) walking by themselves as the distance to the beach is so short. We love that the condo is stocked with everything that we need and that it's an end unit (though we never heard anything from the other side). It's always clean and my kids loves the bunk beds.

This location is one of the best in Destin, as it's close to so many restaurants (our favorite is Louisiana Lagniappe) and even the outlet stores. Driving through Destin can take a while, depending on time of day and time of year, but staying in this location cuts down on time considerably. We also love to walk around the neighborhood during/after naps and look at the cute houses, and there's even a little park nearby.

Hands down this is the best value and best location.

Caribbean Dunes

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Destin. The condo was comfortable and immaculate with a great view of the Gulf. The people watching from the balcony was terrific. The pool and hot tub were immaculate. There was a groundsman working at the property everyday we were there. Great value!
