Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Miramar Beach - CRESCENT CONDOMINIUMS

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This top floor (4th) unit at the Crescent offers direct straight-on views of the oceanfront (not side views like many units) and high ceilings with oversized doors for maximum feelings of luxury and space. This unit is a rare find AND a rate find for those wanting both luxury and best price. Paradise Found. We offer a great price and great property. This is a top-floor (4th floor) unit in a topnotch lowrise resort property with fab. views, high ceilings, and oversized-doors for the luxury you deserve.

Located directly on the beautiful beaches that have made Destin famous, you can look out at the ocean from both the master bedroom and the living room of your unit. But in this low-density, high-end property, guests don't just get ocean and beach views, they get pampered with two pools, hot tub, gorgeous landscaping, covered parking, marble lobby, exercise room, and video arcade...all in addition to the famous and grand Destin sugar-white beaches and emerald waters.

Unit is near the elevator and stairs for convenient access...but not too close...and just moments away from your covered parking space. The exceptionally large balcony that is both covered and uncovered gives you both shade and sun while overlooking the beautiful beaches and Crescent's goregous pool pavillion.

The master bedroom of the unit opens onto the private balcony and looks right out to the ocean and beach. A private master bath has both whirlpool tub and separate tiled shower, double vanities, separate lavatory and walk-in closet. Another separate bath serves the additional guest bedroom.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with side-by-side refrigerator, ice-maker, pantry, dishwasher, range, microwave, disposal, and breakfast bar. A washer/dryer is located in a separated area.

The living room/dining area also has access to the private balcony for both alfresco dining or lounging. The queen sleeper sofa offers additional sleeping options.

This is a one-of-a-kind property where the pools are never crowded and luxury is apparent from the moment you enter the security gate and drive under the glass portico to enter the elegant main lobby. Front Desk personnel are available to assist you during the day. Onsite meeting rooms offer a perfect way to combine a luxury beach vacation with corporate business space, wedding/anniversary receptions, or family reunions.

Free Wreless Internet is throughout the property/unit along with a separate small business station located in the lobby for those who want to stay connected without bringing their own computers.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The location was terrific. It was very quiet. Decor was great and the view was absolutely incredible from this 4th floor unit. Unit was clean and neat on arrival, and had everything we needed in it. Everything was in excellent condition. Furniture was also very comfortable and the unit had all the amenities we could have desired. We'd absolutely stay in this unit again and in fact, want to book again for a week in September when all the kids are back in school. This is a great unit and we'll definately want to stay again. We really enjoyed our stay.

I highly recommend this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to the Crescent before and love the location and the fact that it's only 4 floors high - no long waits for elevators and the beach was not that crowded. This unit was great because they provide beach chairs, beach umbrella, a cooler, sand toys, rafts and boogie boards. How nice was it not to have to pack all those items!! Love the décor too! And Miramar Beach is located near the end of the Destin "strip" so it's not quite as crowded as some areas along Hwy 98 plus it's right across from the Silver Sands Premium Outlet Mall which is a great diversion during the afternoon rains that are sometimes part of our week in Destin. We love going to Busters bar/restaurant and Skippers seafood market which are both within walking distance. So is a Winn Dixie, Taco Bell, and Chick-Fil-A. Everything is right there - we'll be back!

We love this condo

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year back to this condo! We love the spectacular view of the beach & pool area. It has everything we need, including extra spare beach chairs & beach supplies. It is very clean, comfortable, and convenient with a restaurant right next door so that you can walk right to dinner. I haven't found any better amenities than the Crescent in Destin. We love it here & will comeback to same condo next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive comments. We think our housekeeping is 2nd to none and that our unrestricted view from the top floor of this property is also one of the best because it is a direct (not side) view of the beach.

Excellent rental on the beach and across from outlet mall

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Florida and I wanted to make it a point to write a review for this rental because we had such a wonderful experience. The view from the balcony is absolutely beautiful and a great place to start the day while drinking coffee. The unit is very clean, cozy and has everything you need. Our kids really enjoyed the pool too. We did have an issue with the dryer when we arrived and after I notified Marcia it was fixed immediately. Marcia was great to work with, she's super friendly and always ready to help or answer questions. We will definitely rent this unit again the next time we're in the area.

Update to recent review

  • 4 of 5

I just wanted to point out that the issue we had with the Beach Service was in no way related to the condo itself, or the Crescent property. The beach service is provided by Walton County, not The Crescent. They can be very helpful if you have a certain spot you want on the beach, just talk to them early in the morning or a nice tip at the beginning of your trip and they will take care of you.

Great View

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to the Destin area and I really liked the location of this property. There's a grocery store and the outlet mall less than 1/4 mile away. I have two teenage daughters and they shared the spare bedroom. The 2nd bathroom is a little small for teen girls, but we managed. The Condo is well stocked with everything you'd need for a short stay. I would have preferred a coffee pot that used standard filters, but we were able to find the cone style filters on our 2nd trip to the grocery store (Winn-Dixie for those looking for them).

Our trip started with a little scare as the owner literally called us as we were pulling into the parking lot. Apparently they rented the unit to Neanderthals the week before us. The family ripped curtains off the wall, and totally destroyed the couch in the living room. A maintenance crew and cleaning crew were still on-site trying to get the unit ready. I felt bad for the owner who understandably so was in slight panic mode. They were super nice and got the unit ready for us as quickly as possible, even having a new couch delivered that same afternoon. Which I'm sure wasn't easy as we arrived on a Saturday. Anyway, big thanks to the owners for working so hard to get the unit ready for us.

The view from the top floor is fantastic. The pool is large and never was really very crowded. The beach was however overly crowded. The Walton County Beach workers (I assume that's who is in charge of chairs and umbrella's) were kind of rude though. We didn't really know how the set up worked for renting chairs and such, but had our own anyway. When we set our chairs up, they told us we had to move them so they could set up their chairs and they'd be happy to rent them to us. They asked us what unit we were in and when we told them he said "that's the only unit that doesn't come with beach set up". We refused to move our stuff and he set chairs and an umbrella practically on top of our stuff. That was my biggest complaint with the beach service. They set up two rows of chairs/umbrellas with no space in between, so getting to the water could be difficult at times and you felt you had to walk thru people's personal space to get to the water. They said up every chair they had, regardless if they were used or not. Maybe it was just the time of year we were there, but it was a little too crowded for my taste.

Overall great unit! Resort needs an ice machine though!

The view is worth the trip

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Florida every year for the past 20 years. This was our first time in Destin. The Crescent came highly recommended from friends, so we booked a week for unit 414. We had (2) 16 year old boys and (2) 14 year old girls with us. We enjoyed the area and Condo very much. Unit 414 comes with every essential necessary and has an absolute gorgeous view of the Gulf. The pool was the best we have been to in Florida and the beach was absolutely perfect. I would definitely return to this property!!!
