About Marcia or Valerie

We are two families that own rental properties on the beautiful Destin beachfront. All our properties are directly beachfront so you never have a road to cross or a view that is restricted, and all have private balconies with pools. Our motto is, "Vacations should be carefree, with the beach always at your door, and the ocean a constant wave of welcome."

Why Marcia or Valerie chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Why choose this property? Because it is gorgeous, directly on the sugar-white beaches that made Destin famous, and one of the most desirable properties in all of the panhandle, at a price you can't beat for what you get.

What makes this condo unique

Pool Pavilion is fabulous. If not the best in all of Destin, certainly one of the exceptional pool pavilions! Generally uncrowded, with not just one but 2 pools to relax in, and one so large that your pool toys and rafts are always welcome. It caters to families and those looking for a relaxing vacation directly on the beachfront.

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!
