About The Owner

If you want the cheapest, this one isn't for you. You are renting our second home not just another rental property. White carpet. Plush designer furnishings. All flat screen tv's/dvd player in every room. Solid granite eight top table with leather chairs. Leather swivel top bar stools. Corner unit with fantastic views. Powder white sand and emerald green water. At the Dunes of Crystal Beach, only 20 units share over 200ft of beach, meaning not as crowded. Complex is gated and requires guest security code access throughout.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

The condo layout is unique with the circular foyer. Three balconies with the oversized beachfront balcony is unbeatable. The larger than normal den and master suite and open floorplan with the kitchen and den flowing straight to the balcony is like no other condo we looked at. We looked from 30A to Destin and this unit was always our favorite. The former owners had impeccable taste from the bed linens to the furnishings, to the colors, to the upgraded light fixtures including the hall Murano glass sconces, to the rear balcony furnishings. The beachside pool and hottub, the short walk to the beach, and only sharing your beach with 20 other units is better than the crowded highrises! A 2661sq ft unique floorplan compared to the same Destin shotgun 2200sqft floorplan and three balconies, combined with a huge 800 sq ft beach balcony kept drawing us back to this unit. Only the end units in Dunes of Crystal Beach have this layout. In the three months of looking at condos, this always our first choice over all others! And you are right in the heart of Destin close to everything!

What makes this condo unique

Luxurious corner unit beach front condo with huge balconies. Five room - king / queen / queen /2 bunk beds (4 twins) /2 couches. Ground level is parking. We have two covered reserved parking spaces. Complex is only 4 stories with 5 units on each floor. We are on the second floor poolside end unit (3rd level height because of ground level parking). Beach balcony fully furnished with Bahama style sofa, love seats, footstool, and end tables. Perfect for relaxing with friends and family, soaking up the sights and sounds, or taking a nap! Dinner table for 8, bar stools for counter dining - an additional 6 spots, and balcony furnishings to fit everyone at the same time, compared to other units that sleep 10-12 but seat only 4-6. Two full size refrigerators for your drinks and groceries!! Plus a wine/beverage cooler.

Best place yet

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed up and down Old Hwy 98 over the last 20+ years. This was our favorite so far!

High end furnishings and appliances. (Oven problem and Murphy responded immediately. It was repaired the next day). It's bigger than it even looks in the pictures. And I can't say enough about that balcony!

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us <3 We thoroughly enjoyed it!

Best of the Emerald Coast!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a beautiful condo and an amazing view. We had 12 people and it NEVER felt crowded! Although it was busy during Spring break week, our beach was only for this condo and it was never busy. We sat on the deck everyday to see sunrise and sunset. We travel quite a bit and I don't think I have been in a condo that was so well stocked. We used the crock pot, there were extra beach towels, even some unexpected paper products. This was our first time to Destin and this condo is in a perfect location. We walked to two different ice cream places and many nearby restaurants. There was a little coffee shop within 2 blocks, too and the main shopping was within walking distance. We hardly used our car. I also appreciated the owner's quick responses. This place cannot be beat! I highly recommend it!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with extended family and the condo accommodated us wonderfully! Everything worked, the kitchen was well stocked, and there were little bonuses like extra beach towels, a cooler, indoor and outdoor fans, and a tool kit. The condo was decorated beautifully and very upscale. The location can't be beat! Beautiful view and quick access to the beach, and close to groceries, restaurants and other shopping. The pool was never crowded and there was never an issue with noise from neighbors. The property was very secure with gate and keypad doors.The owner was always accessible and provided extra information regarding restaurants, local favorites, etc. We would absolutely stay here again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in a row we have spent our annual family beach vacation here and we love it. It is large with plenty of places for sleeping babies and napping grandparents to get away from the crowd. It is very well equipped for cooking which is important to a family with six grandchildren three and under. The view is beautiful, the pool close by, and it's a great neighborhood to walk and bike but close to all relevant shopping. The owner is very responsive and helpful (he kept in touch during the Hermine threat). We will go back!

The condo was the perfect set up for our mother daughter girl’s trip! The condo location and layout was a great for our group of 10 adults ready to relax. Beach service was amazing! Owners were very accommodating and ensure everything was top notch. Highly Recommend staying here!!!
