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!

Location was good. Condo needs some attention

  • 2 of 5

On the surface this condo appeared clean. However air vents and air handling filter and ceiling fan blades needed cleaning and replacement. Problems pointed out to owner who assured us he would get these issues corrected. Also bedroom carpet needs to be cleaned or replaced. Also didn't appear that furniture had benn vacuumed under prior to our arrival.

Great holiday in a lovely condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a great location and lovely furnished. A few things need repair, but I know see the owners are working on it.

It is absolut worse the money. The kitchen has everthing you need, the bed is fantastic and the kids will love the bunk bed.

We will definitely come back.

I recommend the condo for max. 4 Persons.

Thanks Bill and Maija for that great stay at yours.

Great location!!! Very accommodating for family of 5-6. Off the beaten path, but close to everything

  • 4 of 5

This was our first stay at the Caribbean Dunes, our second time to vacation in Destin. All was great! The location, the condo, the beach distance all was very accommodating for our family of 5. Make sure you take toilet paper, half a roll didn't go far and there is no reserve. 😳򜰠Bottom units are the way to go, you walk out and across to the beach. This will be requested and our only deal breaker upon returning.

Thank you for having us.

Perfect location! May 28

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and the location was perfect!

The bed was so comfortable so we slept great!

Ample cooking supplies and a dishwasher in the kitchen.

Everything was close by. Shrimp Basket was our favorite restaurant.

Thanks so much!

nice property across from beach

  • 4 of 5

Place was nice and very convenient to the beach and our new favorite place Camille's. Bike rentals a few steps away and you can ride to several restaurants including the Crab Shack and Pompano Joe's and others. The condo needs a few updates still, the only major thing we wanted was some nicer patio furniture to enjoy the morning and ocean view. The table is broken. Inside is nice, perfect for the two of us, we would definitely come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the recommendation. The condo is indeed in an ideal spot. We love it. We try very hard to maintain our property, but occasionally things do slip through our grasp. The table for example had been broken by a previous guest who had 'repaired' it with duct tape! Unfortunately my cleaner didn't catch it so we don't know who did it and I will have to pay for a new one out of pocket (I bought that one at the beginning of the season). However, I will be replacing the table at the next opportunity.

The beautiful beach of Crystal Beach, our little neighborhood in Destin right on Scenic Gulf Drive, is the gem of the Emerald Coast! Close to the Destin Commons shopping, Big Kahunas, Silver Sands Factory Outlet Stores, Henderson Beach State Park, Destin Harbor, and all the great Destin restaurants! You can't get a better location.
