A cheery Caribbean condominium is waiting for the pitter patter of your happy feet! This roomy Destin vacation rental has everything a glorious beach getaway should encompass. From its location in the much sought after Crystal Beach area to its amenities and close proximity to the beach. All your worries will be left at the doorstep.
Bright yellow walls greet you upon entry as if to say don't worry, be happy! A fully accessorized kitchen, a balcony overlooking the well manicured grounds and two serenely decorated bedrooms will make your stay comfortable and relaxing.
Imagine a grill out with the family after a great day at the beach, an evening swim in the pool and then cocktails on the balcony or simply unwinding in your own Jacuzzi bathtub or Caribbean Dunes' community spa.
Visitors just love staying at Caribbean Dunes because of its great location. Immediately next door is the very popular Camille's Restaurant and an adjoining coffee shop. Right across the street is a gazebo and the boardwalk to the beach. Also, the Destin Commons outdoor mall, grocery stores and other great shopping destinations are all less than a mile away. Great things happen when the ease of the Caribbean and the laid back lifestyle of Destin meet- great vacations!
During Spring Break this condo requires a 7-night, Saturday to Saturday stay. Over the 4th of July holiday we require a weekly stay.
We do not rent to anyone under 25 or to students.
The condo we rented through Newman Dailey was beautiful the colors were vibrant yellow which is my favorite color. The walking distance to the beach was very easy to get to back and forth. With renting from Newman Dailey we were able to rent two movies for free every day, also we received an adult ticket daily for the dolphin cruise and one free parasailing ride daily for the days we were there. Newman-Dailey was very helpful in planning any extra activities that my family and I wanted to do while visiting Destin. Our condo was wonderful, very much loved how the balcony doors opened and you could just sit and relax the balcony was very spacious. Our beds were very comfortable and the Jacuzzi tub was awesome. Kitchen was well stocked with anything and everything we could have possible needed during our stay at Caribbean Dunes 222. Thank you to the staff and especially Laura for making my family and I feel at home and very smooth transition for late arrival the night we checked in to our rooms. We will definitely stay with Newman Dailey every chance we can.
Great room. Close to great eats & shopping. Only major problem we had was with beach security. We were told that we could not set up our umbrella or chairs on/near the beach because that beach was privately owned by Crystal Dunes & Emerald Dunes. Anyone staying at Caribbean Dunes could only walk the beach and if we wanted to set up our umbrellas or chairs, we'd have to find a public beach far away from where we were staying. Bummer!
For several years we have chosen units in the Caribbean Dunes complex in the Crystal Beach area of Destin. It's only a block off the main street and the mid-bay bridge entrance, avoiding downtown Destin traffic. The white sands and emerald waters are just across the scenic highway and Henderson State park with less crowded beach areas.
This unit had wonderful luxury towels in the bathrooms, a kitchen fully stocked with cooking items and small appliances, and its own washer/dryer unit. The upstairs bedroom is just an open loft, so the sun will wake you up in the morning and the living room TV is even louder upstairs. We put our teen daughters up there and used the bedroom on the lower floor. We love the balcony to store beach toys and dry towels and suits. And we could view the complex's swimming pool and hot tub as well as a bit of ocean from the balcony.
For check in we had to visit the office to get our code. Usually we get the door code from the app on our phone and go straight to our unit - handy if we arrive late in the evening. Yes, the office was close by, but it was still an extra step that some units in this complex don't require. Bonus - we got a gift card for several free items, including a water park pass and, dolphin tour, and parasailing. Make sure you call the correct number on the card (there were 4 of them) to reserve in advance.
There were no extra trash can liners, dishwasher detergent, dishwashing soap, kitchen towels, or dishrag provided. Many times when we go skiing or to the beach these are included. Since we stay a week, I had come with my own to supplement.
The unit wasn't quite ready when we arrived just after the 4pm checkin time, but the cleaner let us go ahead and start unloading. We visited over July 4th week, so I know they were extra busy.
Water heater is small so schedule some time before you send the next person in to bathe.
These units are 20+ years old, so there are little things here and there that come with age, but we love this complex - if we can't find one on VRBO we go through a property management company to get one here. Have even considered buying a unit. The prices seem to be the same no matter how you find your unit - choose Caribbean Dunes - it's perfect!
The condo was everything we needed! Convenient to the beach, shopping, restaurants and more!! Loved everything about it!
