About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located on Scenic Highway 98 in the beautiful Crystal Beach community, just across the street from the sugar white sand and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this seaside community is a wonderful retreat.

Our recently remodeled condominium is on the first floor with a spectacular view of the Gulf. From the patio you can look out at the gorgeous emerald water. The pool, whirlpool and barbecue area are just steps away. Beach access is right across the street.

The large master bedroom, with queen size bed, has a separate entry into the spacious bathroom, which has a Jacuzzi tub. The kitchen is bright, roomy and fully equipped. Bunk beds are built into the hall and a sleeper sofa is included to accommodate additional guests. Also included in the unit for your convenience is a washer and dryer.

This winter a new kitchen was put in with Granite counter tops, stanless steel appliances, new cabinets, and many other amenties.

Why Susan Sprigg chose Crystal Beach

Carribbean Dunes is in a very unique area of Destin. It is a block from the park and only a few steps to the beach. Direct gulf views. Quiet area. Walk to shopping, restaurants and groceries.

Short walk to beach! Clean and update condo

  • 4 of 5

Very short walk to beach! Very convenient to have first floor condo. I want not want to carry all our beach stuff up a flight of stairs. Owner was very great to work with. We extended our stay 1 more night no proplem. My husband and I stayed for 6 nights with our 2 boys ages 11, 10, also brought my mom with us. She said the bunk bed was comfortable. Didn't use the pull out couch it was not comfortable. Could have used a better mattress in the bedroom. Overall great trip to destin. Will come back and rent this condo again, very affordable.

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out stay here. Everything was clean, functional and nice. My wife found in kitchen everything she needed. Beach is just across the street. Everything we needed was close to this location. The only thing we missed from our home was our mattress, but it's ok...lol. We are sure we will come back.

Mediocre..at best....But LOVED DESTIN

  • 2 of 5

We absolutely loved the location. We had beautiful weather and the beaches and food were outstanding..

Constantly dealing with tiny little ants all over the kitchen...And any food left out of the refrigerator ...was beyond disappointing..

There was a constant drip right outside our bedroom that started around 2-3 a.m. and continued til morning. Neither of us slept thru the night one night the entire week. What should've been a restful week was not.

When we attempted to notify someone we called the number given to us. What we received was someone that BARELY spoke English and was rude beyond words. On our THIRD attempt we were, reluctantly,finally given a phone number for our contact person.

When we arrived we were unable to use any surface to sit anything down as the unit had not been wiped down. We assumed that it hadn't been occupied in a while. My husband and I secured cleaning equipment and wiped everything down.

We were assured we would be refunded $$$ in addition to our deposit.

We would probably not rent this unit....Nor recommend it...But we would return to Destin

Owner's Response: I had the exterminator come right over and spray. It was early spring when ants kinda come out of no where...we took care of the issue and have not had complaints again. Some things cannot be prevented but can be taken care of as soon as they are discovered and that is what I did. I have a wonderful cleaning service that is highly sought after and is thorough. Thanks Susan

Nice property, untrusted and rude owner

  • 1 of 5

I stayed with my family at the given property between 6-8 of October.

The instructions we had prior arrival to the property included the details on how to use the keypad lock and the backup box. It didn't include any instructions about the deadbolt lock though.

On 7th October we went out of the apartment from the back door (it's on the ground floor) and left the deadbolt locked, as I knew the backup box contains the key to unlock the front door. The keys didn't match the deadbolt lock nor the backdoor. Hence, we got stuck out of the house.

I called Susan (the landlord) and asked for her assistance. She said she's not there, but advised to call a lock picker and said that if it's my mistake - i'll pay for it, otherwise she'll reimburse me. After the lock picker opened the door, we called Susan and he explained that the keys didn't match. Susan and I spoke a few minutes later and she said she's going to reimburse me for the fee I paid - $70.

After a while I asked why she didn't reimburse me and she ignored my messages. In the second attempt she said she's going to reimburse me at the end of the month, but again, she didn't reimburse me.

Additionally, her language was extremely unpleasant (getting into her expense calculations and blaming me).

Bottom line - I would recommend to be careful of the people you make business with. If I had the chance to read such review before I rented the property, I would run away from this deal.

Owner's Response: I have managed property in Destin for over 20 years. This is my first negative review. I stated that I would pay for the locksmith if the issue were my fault, that I pay at the end of the month etc. I have a push button lock on the front door, with back up keys for that lock if it should fail. Which it did not. I have keys for the sliding glass door, he did not take those with him when he left. He locked the dead bolt and didn't take the keys provided. I do not see how this is my fault. He proceeded to text, call, email and threaten me to get me to reimburse him. I am a fair person but I will not be taken advantage of and pay for something out of fear of a negative review. I do not appreciate being harassed. I welcome all guests and go out of my way to accommodate everyone. My condo is in a great location, very clean, updated and has many upgrades. I am sorry he felt the need to try and hurt my owners income by posting this negative review. I sincerely appreciate all of my guests and have some that have rented from me year after year. Thanks Susan
