About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Wonderful first floor unit, with view of the Gulf, located in quaint, quiet Crystal Beach. Walk from the patio, across Scenic Gulf Drive, and through the beach entrance to the beautiful white sand beach and warm, turquoise waters of the Gulf. Adjacent to Henderson Beach National shore.

After a day at the beach, relax by the pool (heated seasonally) and oudoor spa, where there is wi-fi internet access. Or stroll down the sidewalk for a bite at Camilles. There are numberous other dining options within walking distance - from upscale dining at the Inn at Cystal Beach to more relaxed options such as Olive Garden, Outback, Chili's and Applebee's. And if shopping is your desired post-beach activity, we are within walking distance to Destin Commons and a 5-10 minute drive to the famous Silver Sands Factory Outlet. Big Kahuna's, the Track and numberous golf courses are also close by. There is so much to do in Destin, it will be hard to choose.

Our unit is very clean, well maintained, and has many updates, including granite kitchen counters, tiling, fixtures, paint, and furniture. Features include a king-size bed in master bedroom, bunk area, pull-out couch (sleeps six total), and jacuzzi tub in bath. Electronic keyless entry. BRING YOUR LAPTOP, WE HAVE WI-FI IN THE UNIT. Ideal for couples and small families. Please no smoking, no pets. Please note that we do not rent to persons under 25.

Please do not forget to read our reviews. We have many happy renters.

About Michele Hamilton

Hi, we are Todd and Michele Hamilton of Holliston, MA (a suburb of Boston). We purchased our condo at Caribbean Dunes in 2003. We fell in love with the area 5 years earlier, when we came to the Panhandle for the first time for a temporary job assignment. We continued to vacation in Destin and decided to purchase our own home and share it with other beach lovers.

Why Michele Hamilton chose Crystal Beach

After looking at property for more than a year, we decided to purchase a home in our favorite neighborhood. We love Crystal Beach - it is quiet, close to Henderson Park, has lots of single family homes, quaint neighborhoods and no high-rises. We chose Caribbean Dunes specifically because of its location close to two public beach entrances and Henderson Park; we like the archectual style of the building, the well maintained property, the tall ceilings and well designed units. Most importantly, our unit affords us a view of the Gulf.

What makes this condo unique

Our home at Caribbean Dunes is located just steps from the beach, and yet we are within walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants and shops. We are close to championship golf courses, Big Kahunas, the Track, Destin Commons, Baytowne Wharf, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, and a variety of water sports. There is also biking, hiking and canoeing in the area.

A week of relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

So thankful Mr. & Mrs. Hamilton allowed us to stay in their wonderful home. Minus our one embarrassing hiccup where we forgot the door code (always keep that with you!) we absolutely loved this quaint & quiet condo. Each morning, we had coffee on the porch from Camille's (a short walk down the sidewalk) & then went on a morning jog thru the scenic neighborhood. Speed limit is only 20 thru the neighborhood so traffic was never a problem/threatening while on foot. While this is not a beachfront property, the beach is LITERALLY across the road with easy access. It did storm 2 of the nights we were there, but we didn't let them dampen our stay.. there is plenty to do in town as well as just enjoying the rain with a "cup of joe" on the porch. If we ever return to Destin, I will definitely check to see if this condo is available first!

Very nice and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the fact that you could walk out the porch and across to the beach! It was clean and was nice to have your own place to make meals and do laundry. The Hamiltons were great to deal with and hope to be back soon!

Cute Condo, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 3 1/2. Kitchen had everything we needed. The bathroom was a decent size, we normally prefer 2 but it was big enough that we weren’t standing on top of each other with everyone trying to get ready. The bottom floor porch area was our favorite part. Super convenient with a little one in tow. Our 3 year old also loved seeing all the dogs walking their humans on the sidewalk right outside our door. Had a few questions while we were there and the owners were very prompt in responding and even offered us a refund for our remaining days due to the threat of a tropical storm coming. We opted to stay and had a great time. Can’t wait to come back as a family of 4 :)

Awesome stay!

  • 4 of 5

Clean unit, nicely equipped! VERY short walk to the beach. Destin commons is a 3 minute drive. Publix and Walmart near by. Will definitely rent again. Only downfall during our stay were noisy upstairs neighbors. Not sure if they were renovating, but you sure could tell when they came and went!

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in very good shape and the location was excellent. You could see the ocean from the outside deck. If there was one small problem it was that someone on the second floor came home at 2:30 every night and was very loud and argumentative and noisy. This woke both my wife and I up.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We appreciate your taking the time to submit a review. I am sorry you were disturbed by the people in the unit above. It happens infrequently. Unfortunately, people can sometimes be discourteous. We hope that the convenience of being on the first floor with direct access to beach, pool and parking lot out weighs any inconvenience of having people above. Warm, Michele &Todd
