You will love this gulf front condo located on the beautiful white sands of Crystal Beach. You can enjoy the view and the sounds of the Gulf of Mexico from the third floor balcony. If you prefer, you can stroll the lovely beach or bike ride, walk, or jog along the paved sidewalks/bike trails of Scenic Gulf Drive. This well-appointed condo has 2 king size beds (one is in the master and one in the second story loft) and another bedroom with two twin daybeds with trundles, and 2 full bathrooms. Our maximum occupancy is 8. Although, we believe our home is most comfortable for parties of 6 or less.

About Suzanne Hardison
We are Barry and Suzanne Hardison and we are thrilled to have a oceanfront vacation condo in Destin! For 5 years, we owned and rented through VRBO a 1 bedroom condo across the street from the beach. We feel blessed to have this larger, beach-side home which accommodates more family and allows us to consider our young teenagers' desire to bring friends to the beach. Our family looks forward to any time in Destin. The sound of the waves and the beautiful white sand are so enticing. In fact, our children have even braved the winter waters of the Gulf! There's never a bad day when you are at the beach!
Suzanne Hardison purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Suzanne Hardison chose Crystal Beach
Crystal Villas is in the perfect location. In our opinion, it is on the "quiet end" of Scenic Highway 98. This smaller, three story complex is in a prime location to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. You can be as busy or relaxed as you want in the convenient condo.
What makes this Condo unique
The sense of calm and relaxation our family experiences at the beach is priceless. Our teenage children love to swim in the ocean and pool, and we always enjoy our morning runs as a family on the walking/bike path. Window shopping and eating fresh seafood top our list of "must-do" excursions away from the beach. It is always a blessing to be here.

A spectacular view!
The place was extremely clean. The view was spectacular! The place was very well equipped.
We had quite a bit of difficulty getting our suitcases up to our place because there is no elevator. In your defense, it was disclosed, I just missed it.
The opportunity to have our own section of the beach, along with two chairs and an umbrella was wonderful.
Overall, we had a fantastic time!
Very much enjoyed our stay! Clean, well equipped, convenient and plenty of room for our family of 5. Would love to stay again.
We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Our home's layout is quite comfortable for a family of 5. Thank you for choosing it for your beach vacation.
Beautiful beachside condo
Our stay at Crystal Villas was as close to perfect as you can get! The condo offered plenty of space for our family of seven. Our five teenagers had space to relax, play, & have privacy when they wanted it. The condo was nicely furnished and well stocked with all the comforts of home. The two chairs & umbrella provided at the beach were so nice. We made use of the extra chairs & beach toys that were in the upstairs closet.
The proximity to the beach was wonderful and allowed us to come and go from the beach at will. We loved the white sand and the clear water. We rented a paddle board from the beach attendant for one day and would highly recommend it.
I cannot say enough good things about this condo or our stay at Crystal Villas. We are already planning a return trip for next summer!
Your review doesn't get much better! Thank you. We are glad you put the extra beach chairs and sand toys to go use. Renting a paddle board from the beach service is a favorite with our teenage children too. We've been lucky enough to see dolphin while paddling out in the crystal clear waters of the Gulf! We look forward to your family's return.
We enjoyed the location easy to find. On the Beach and view was awesome. Thanks again hope to be back.
Close to the Destin Bridge and Highway 98, our condo's location is easy to find and convenient. We agree that the beach is spectacular! Please do stay with us again.
This condo was so clean and comfortable. Will definitely be back.
Cleanliness is a top priority. Our cleaning service does a marvelous job. Thank you for staying with us!
Worked Out Well for the Weekend, Great Location on the Beach close to just about everything
The Condo worked out well for the weekend, despite a few small obstacles!
There’s no elevator, and the condo is on the 3rd floor! The internet Network was kind of shaky , but I eventually got it going ; however it was a slower speed , so I ditched my laptop for the weekend and actually enjoyed myself on the beautiful white sand beach!
Although there are two king sized beds in the condo ; however the kids will had to cut through the loft bed room to get to their room, but it worked out because my girlfriend didn’t come!
Overall my sons had a great time, so it was all well worth it, the beach is clean and quite, I sat on the balcony while my sons played football in the sand , I enjoyed the balcony a lot especially at night. The location was convenient and close to just about everything, we were in town for my cousin wedding in Fort Walton, all of my family with kids cane over to Destin, that’s where the action is if you have kids or want to shop , but explore all of the beaches if you can.
My sisters and I have decided to meet with our families in Destin again next Summer!
It is wonderful that your family has discovered Destin's charm and are planning a future vacation here. We are pleased our home worked well for your weekend visit and wedding in nearby Fort Walton. We try to be very clear on our listing (mention it in several places) that Crystal Villas does not have an elevator and that our home is on the 3rd floor. Also, we want guests to know exactly what the layout of our home is and do our best to illustrate it with pictures and descriptions. The upstairs loft bedroom is open to the main living area below and is connected to the bathroom hallway that leads to the third bedroom. It is not a private bedroom for sure. We are glad you ditched your laptop and enjoyed the sun and sand instead. The Home Owners Association controls the internet for the complex. We will share that an upgrade in speed may be in order. Thanks for your feedback.
