About the property

SPRING DISCOUNTS!! 1 Bedroom, Hallway Bunks, Pull-out Couch, (Sleeps 6)


'Blue Sea View' is our cute one-bedroom/one bathroom with hallway bunks on the ground floor of the Caribbean Dunes condo building, right in the heart of the beautiful Crystal Beach corner of Destin. We are literally right across from the beach and the heated swimming pool and hot tub is at the end of the same building. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance!

The main attraction is that our patio looks onto Scenic Gulf Drive and there is a fantastic view just across the street of the Gulf! The public beach access is literally steps away just across the road, you can be on the beach in 60 seconds!

The condo has all the needed amenities in the cute blue-tile kitchen, with breakfast bar and table seating. The living room has a brand new pull-out couch and lounge chair, tv/dvd/vcr/Nintendo-64, cable, wifi internet access, and the huge glass doors leading out to our patio, so you can see the Gulf right from the living room!

In the bedroom is a King bed with new mattress, closet, tv/dvd, dresser, and private access to the bathroom. Since the bedroom is at the back of the condo, it is quiet at night! You'll get a great night's sleep.

In the hallway are the bunk beds for the kids, access to the bathroom, and a washer/dryer cupboard.

Caribbean Dunes has it's own heated pool, hot tub, and grill area, and just 500 feet East down the Scenic Gulf walkway/bikeway is Destin's famous (and local's favorite for the amazing sushi and fresh seafood) Camille's restaurant and cafe where you can get your morning latte or great dinner in the evenings. There is a scooter and bike rental next door. Two other fine restaurants within easy walking distance are the Henderson Inn Beachwalk Cafe and 790 On The Gulf which has a great happy hour menu. Grocery stores are only a mile or two away, and shopping at Destin Commons is even closer!

Everything you'll need for a relaxing and fun stay at the beach is all right there. Come on down to the Emerald Coast!!

About Bill

Bill and I are a fun-loving couple that loves to travel! We came to the Destin area because of the beauty of the beaches and the perfect Panhandle weather, and to start our family. In October 2012 we had our baby girl!!

Bill purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bill chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We loved the fact that you could walk right out the living room onto the patio and see the gulf across the street, and walk right across to street to the public beach access. The condo is a perfect size for a family or a small group of friends!

What makes this condo unique

The blue tile in the kitchen is a special feature of this condo, we think it adds a lot of flair and personality!

we loved it!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo in Caribbean Dunes! We loved the location and we loved the ocean view! The condo was very clean. The owner was great to work with and he responds very quickly if you have a question about anything or have any problems once reaching the condo. The pool was great and you are just steps to the beach. We also loved the patio. My boys loved the bunk beds! We will definitely stay again!

Great location/condo needs attention

  • 3 of 5

Positives: Bill responded quickly to any questions I had. The location was perfect and the view from the patio was beautiful. The pool was nice and never felt overcrowded. It was awesome to have a washer/dryer in the unit. Also, the AC worked great!

Negatives: The condo was not clean. The comforters aren't washed/changed and that was a real turn off. The carpet in the bedroom was filthy. I located a vacuum in the bedroom closet and attempted to vacuum but the vacuum didn't work. The condo needs some TLC. The kitchen table has a film that wouldn't wipe off so we never sat there. The patio table remains duct taped from 2 years ago. The patio needs new furniture and the stained chair in the living room needs to go. Needed more bath towels. For sure needs a new cleaning crew. The condo has potential to be really cute if taken care of better.

Ok, but needs a good cleaning

  • 3 of 5

Great location, overall it was ok, they really need a new cleaning crew. The fans were very dirty and they could use use a new rug in the bathroom. It was very old. They need a key for the patio door. It was a pain to go to the front door when we went to the beach. The master bed was comfortable. The pool was great. We would probably stay there again

Clean and very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

It was clean and very close to the beach. The one thing that was weird to me is that you are supposed to strip your linens off the bed, take out the trash and make sure there isn't much sand in the floor. I tried my best, but I was at the beach... so there was sand. They charge a 100 dollar cleaning fee and then ask you to do that stuff. It's minimal, but I don't think a 100 dollar cleaning fee is warranted. But it was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed my stay. I would definitely go again
