Great location, beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

Location on the beach was wonderful along with the quiet and beautifully decorated condo. I was concerned about previous travelers cleaning comments but was pleasantly surprised to find no issues. Beds were very comfortable and the kids really enjoyed the toys and boards available to use at the beach. We had issues with the televisions but was quickly fixed by maintenance after the owner was called. We had a MAJOR issue with the umbrella and chair Twilight beach service that has a contract with Crystal Sands condos. This service does not come with this specific condo and must be paid out of pocket. We were threatened and harassed by this companies worker on the beach in front of our children and other vacationers. The owner was called and the issue resolved as we were left alone by the worker for the rest of the week. Unfortunately this ruined our Destin vacation experience and we will not return. However, the condo and location were lovely.

Wonderful beach front stay!

  • 5 of 5

This Crystal Sands condo overlooks the beach & if you purchase the beach service umbrella/chairs for each day you are there, you know when the chairs are being setup each morning & you can normally see dolphins early in the morning from the beautiful view! It's close to town for convent places to eat. The imagination that went into decorating this condo is so creative and comfortable!! The convenient amenities there also make your stay more enjoyable.

Not what we expected!

  • 2 of 5

We arrived to a dirty condo (had to purchase broom to remove sand when we hadn't been to the beach yet) the ceiling fan upstairs was caked with dust (have pictures to prove.) The location was great, right on the beach. We've been to destin several years and will continue to go but will find another condo!

Owner's Response: I would have appreciated very much having the opportunity to correct this issue for this guest. I state clearly in my listings Hospitality APP that my cleaning company and I have a 100% satisfaction guarantee offered to every guest if they will contact me within 4 hours of arrival. Someone would have come and corrected that immediately. I was only notified they were not satisfied with their stay after they had departed and after I emailed them that I would have to withhold money from their deposit for non-compliance with the check-out procedures and for a sheet they spilled liquid makeup on and the stain could not be removed. I clearly state my check out procedures in the APP and again in a personal email prior to every guests arrival. I only charge a guest for this when my cleaning service charges me. It is my desire for every guest to go away happy about their stay at our property. Every guest has all this information prior to arrival along with my personal email and my personal cell number that I have with me 24 hours a day. Again, I would have appreciated being given the opportunity to correct this issue.

Nice place and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and everything worked. It was well stocked for our needs. The loft area is not real private but it was great for the kids and their friends that came. Lori is quick to respond if you need anything. We will be coming back to this condo.
