About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This condo was decorated for private use with nice linens,towels, utensils, etc. So this does not look like a rental. Spend time on the deck watching the dolphins.

'BEACHSIDE DELIGHT' is a cozy and cheerful 1 BEDROOM, 1 BATH condo. It is located in a small, peaceful GATED complex directly fronted by 300 feet of sugar white PRIVATE BEACH in the popular seaside neighborhood of Crystal Beach. It is less than a minute from the condo door to the shore and four blocks from Destin Commons Mall.

This condo accomodates 2 people and is suitable for couples, with small children and snowbirds desiring longer stays. It is a great choice for business travelers who prefer a comfortable condo to a motel room while doing business in our area.

The condo has an inviting atmosphere enhanced by quality upgrades such as new granite countertops and stainless steel sink, cheerful wall colors and attractive wall art. Everything needed for cooking and dining is provided.

For a comfortable nights sleep guests can't miss with the top of the line QUEEN TEMPUR-PEDIC MATTRESS AND TEMPUR-PEDIC PILLOWS.

Another plus is the updated bathroom with new COMFORT-HEIGHT commode and new bathtub with SAFETY GRAB BARS.

About Jeannine Wright

I am a retired Air Force Flight nurse, serving in Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Shield, Desert Storm. I enjoy the beach, and when I am not using, I wanted to share so others could enjoy also.

Why Jeannine Wright chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

I bought this cozy gem because I wanted a vacation condo right on the beach. I chose to buy in this complex because it is in upscale Crystal Beach and in a small community without a lot of hassles and noise. I have easy access into my unit, private parking right in front of my door and everything I need is conveniently close. The private beach is wonderful, never crowded. Originally it was not intended as a vacation rental but I decided to open it to vacationers when I am not in the area.

What makes this condo unique

A benefit to staying in my condo is of course the beautiful private beach being so close to the unit. Also I keep it upgraded and very clean. I am concerned about guest comfort and my furnishings reflect that. LONG term/SHORT TERM RENTALS WELCOMED

You won't be bothered with crowds of people. The beach is never crowded since this complex has only 23 units most of which are one bedrooms. This makes for a more relaxing and peaceful beach experience.

A plus to staying in my condo is that you will be so very close to restaurants, stores and popular attractions which saves time and gas.

This is a great pick for a beach getaway to relax and rejuvenate and enjoy Destin's top beach.

We loved the colorful decor and well stocked kitchen. Sitting on the deck and watching the ocean and sunsets was pure heaven

I almost hate to write this review because this is such a gem of a find. This year will be our 4th year renting with Jeannine. I love the little Capri. We usually stay a week at a time, she's always so kind and very responsive. She makes upgrades each year and we have fun trying to remember what she has changed from the prior year. It's perfect for two. If you had small kids you probably would be able to make it work but it's really best if it's just two. We buy a whole bunch of groceries and we make sandwiches for the beach and cook dinner at night. We don't leave the area for much. There are a few places you can walk to for dinner and you never have to mess with the crazy traffic of Destin. Thanks Jeannine for being a part of our great vacation every year!

Great week in Destin

  • 5 of 5

The Condo for my wife & I was perfect. Jeannine's place has everything you could ever need on vacation - or a month stay. It is loaded with everything you would need - from margarita glasses to beach boogie boards. The condo area was quiet and peaceful. The water was warm & blue - and the beach service crew could not of been any nicer. If only Destin could get a handle on their trafic problem - wow - is it busy on the main roads. We are looking forward to driving back down from Ill again next year.

Great Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasant surprise this place was since we booked it through VRBO and had to rely on the pictures provided. It looks exactly like the pictures! You would have to rent an expensive beach house to have the quick and easy access to the beach that this place provides. No packing up for the trip to the beach for the day! We spent more time actually on the beach than ever before due to the convenience of walking right out the door, down the sidewalk, and down to the beach. Also, we felt like if we owned a condo at the beach that was ours for our private use, it would be just like this unit! From sunrise to sunset, every day was just about perfect. I got my beach fix for sure!

Beautiful unit, and the beach was great!!

  • 5 of 5

I came planning to stay 5 days, and have stayed 8. The unit was furnished completely and the beach was the widest I have seen in years. The sand is still like sugar. There was no evidence of any oil spill, no odor, just a beautiful beach. It's great to find a beach that doesn't have the chairs and umbrellas all jammed up together. Plenty of space, just for you !
