About the property

Satisfaction Guaranteed! No Crowds! No Traffic! Low Density Building!

* The perfect location in Destin. Crystal Villas is located in the quiet section of Destin and is one of the limited properties directly on the beach. In order to get there, you do not have to travel down Highway 98, which is under construction and traffic is a nightmare.

* Crystal Villas has a PRIVATE BEACH! Therefore, you do not have the frustrating parking issue that people face when they choose a property off the beach or with a "beach view."

This condo comes with top of the line furnishings, linens, decorations, and all of the other "extras." Beach service for 2 is included during the season! The condo includes a variety of beach toys, sand toys, boogie boards, unique games, current books, DVD's, and a "Smart TV." There are also 2 additional beach chairs and umbrella in the condo for your use. When it comes time to turn in, the King Size Marriott Bed an award-winning bedding, guarantees you a good night’s sleep. There are built in bunk beds for additional sleeping, which are actually very comfortable.

This condo is located on the second floor, which means you have the glorious views that the first floor does not offer and you only have one flight of stairs to carry luggage up, whereas the walk to the condos on the 3rd floor can be a long haul.

Not only is the beach right on your doorstep, a myriad of eating, shopping and entertainment options are within easy walking or driving distance. If you want to mix in some activities with your relaxation there are plenty of options, including Dolphin Cruises, Deep Sea Fishing trips and a variety of water sports. You can take a stroll down Scenic Highway 98 or head east by car along the coast to the quaint beachside communities of Seagrove, Seaside and Rosemary Beach. At night, you can walk and enjoy drinks on the terrace of 790 On The Gulf or check out one of the many local beachside restaurants. Crystal Villas is located within 1000 feet of Henderson Beach State Park and is also within walking distance of Destin Commons where there is a state of the art movie theater, bowling alley, and upscale shopping. It is a short drive to Golf Courses, Water Parks and one of the largest outlet malls in Florida.The perfect location is what sets this condo apart from many others in the Destin area. I am available 24 hours per day if you experience any problems and customer satisfaction is my utmost priority.

About Ellen Harris

I bought this condo to use as a second home and it will hopefully be a place where I can retire someday. Until then, I am able to share this very special place with others. Please do not hesitate to call me for more information about this condo.

Ellen Harris purchased this condo in 2016

Why Ellen Harris chose Crystal Beach

The decor in this condo is bright, cheerful and does not have the worn look of other condos.

The view of the sparkling sand and emerald water from the living room and kitchen are amazing.

Since it is a second floor unit it has the views that cannot be found on the first floor.

Since there is not an elevator in the building, you will not be inconvenienced with the long walk to the third floor.

What makes this condo unique

Chair and Umbrella Service Included during season.

Having your feet in the sand is only a flight of stairs and seconds away.

Located in the quieter section of Destin where the beaches are not packed with people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Accidentally hit 3 stars for review and could not go back and change it. Take off star because host does not like her guests to smoke cigarettes. Forgot it said No Smoking in ad, but other condos smoking okey. So sorry for any confusion. English is second language.

Beautiful condo, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Doesn’t get much better than this! (Our second time returning to Destin and staying at this group of condos). It literally takes a minute to walk down to private beach or to new outdoor pool area. This is so important when having little ones and having to run back and forth to the room for things. Got to revisit my favorite little coffee/breakfast spot every morning, Camille’s! (5 min walk tops - just take a right outside of condo and follow the sidewalk. So many awesome restaraunts in town too! (Fudpuckers and McGuire’s to name a few faves).

Condo was plenty big for our family of 4. Ellen was a pleasure to work with! Next time we will know not to pack as much, as Ellen had tons of kids sand & swim toys for guests to use :)

Master bed super comfy! Bunk beds cute and full of books for kiddos to read.Ellen also has lots of family games and movies for guests as well.

Overall, wonderful stay and such a great vacation for our family! Thank you Ellen!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to write a review. I also appreciate the compliments on the condo and letting others know all that is available within the unit. I cannot take credit for the beautiful view and the perfect location:) I hope you guys will be able to visit again soon because I am always looking for fun new items to put in the condo for kids. Thank you, Ellen

My wife and I travel to Destin every summer, and this was absolutely the best condo that we’ve stayed in. Beautifully decorated, super clean, and has all of the extras. Ellen was so awesome and responsive. You really can’t beat the location!! All of the great reviews are absolutely spot on! We will most definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Wow what a great compliment! It is my goal that people feel that way when they stay in our condo and it really does feel good when someone takes the time to acknowledge it publicly. Thank you again for selecting my condo to spend your vacation and I hope you will return soon.
