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.

Very comfortable, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Overall we were very comfortable in the unit. We stayed here 4/1-4/8 with 2 adults and 3 kids aged 1,4, and 6. The older two shared the queen bed, and we rented a crib that was delivered in the unit before we arrived.

We had an issue with the dryer, which stopped working on the 3rd day of our stay.

Marcia and Valerie were very quick to get someone out to fix the dryer and communication was excellent. These kind of things happen, and it wasn't a huge deal to us- and they handled it perfectly.

The unit was clean. I would prefer not to have carpet, but that isn't a huge deal.

We will definitely consider staying here again on return trips to Destin.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your understanding on the dryer. We offered to do laundry for the guest while dryer was down but guest declined and luckily, our appliance repair was able to get it back in operation. We look forward to this family's return.

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.
