About the Property
Beautiful Crystal Beach - Ocean View - Steps From Beach - 2nd Floor End Unit
We are lucky to have one of the best views in the complex - A beautiful straight-on view of the Gulf from the balcony, and living area. We are on the 2nd floor, end/corner unit, with beach access 100 yards away from the door. No need to pack the car up to then battle the traffic and parking at the beach. When you are hungry for lunch, you can walk to the condo and make your favorite sandwich, or grab one from Camille's on your walk by!
Our 1 bedroom/1 bath condo is non-smoking, and comes comfortably furnished. We have a well equipped kitchen that includes all of your major appliances and necessities you might need, in addition to a washer/dryer combo located right in the unit. The living room and bedroom have flat screen TV's.
The unit can sleep a family of 4 comfortably, with a queen sized bed in the master bedroom, and 2 bunk beds in the hallway. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room that sleeps an additional 2 people, but is not recommended for long term sleeping arrangements as it's very uncomfortable. (I've slept on it!) Bed linens, kitchen and bathroom towels are provided, but beach towels are not.
The condo itself is located in the Caribbean Dunes complex, which is situated in the family oriented Crystal Beach, a beautiful and highly desired area of Destin. If you look on a map, you will see the area sits between the main area of Destin and Miramar Beach. The neighborhood itself is very quaint, with cottage-style homes, and none of those huge high rise beach condo's. The complex has a large swimming pool and hot tub for guest's to use, and also has several barbecue grills available for guests to use since outdoor grilling isn't allowed on the balconies due to fire codes.
We are located right next to a little summer shop that rents out bicycles, kayak's and paddle boards, and beside them is Camille’s, a great small, eclectic restaurant. We are approximately one mile to Destin Commons which is a host to many shopping stores, and family dining, and for your grocery shopping, Publix and Walgreens are also located close by, on the opposite side of the road on Destin Commons. There’s also the Silver Sands Premium Outlets in Miramar, only a few minutes down the road driving.
For fun family activities, the Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park, the Track and other mini golf courses are also close by. The popular Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin is also fun for the family. There are so many options to choose from.
We love our little taste of paradise, and hope to share it with you too!

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: The condo is operated by myself and my daughter. I reside in Maine and my daughter (who is originally from Maine as well) lives in the Mobile, Alabama area. As I had begun to plan for retirement, I came across this unit for sale in the fall of 2014, and the timing was perfect.
Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Destin, FL, USA:
Originally on the lookout for a retirement retreat in Naples, I fell in love with Crystal Beach/Destin area on my very 1st visit. I was planning a vacation to see my daughter in Mobile Alabama, and she told me part of our time would be spent in Destin Florida. She raved about the beautiful 'Caribbean-Like' water, and how much I would love the simplicity and tranquility of Crystal Beach. Needless to say, I didn't want to leave once I got there! I ended up extending my vacation, and then came across my own, perfect little tropical paradise for sale at Caribbean Dunes. The rest is history. I hope to be able to share this tropical oasis with many! Thanks for looking! Martina
