This was our, (my mom and me), second visit to this beach front condo, and once again, we loved it! We stayed 2 weeks, and were able to completely relax, and this condo is so quiet and comfortable! The view is incredible! There is nothing obstructing the view to the beach! It’s a very clean and maintained unit as well. Also, we felt safe and the parking lot is well lit. The location is perfect! It’s easy to walk down to Camille’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner!! Or, just make grilled cheese sandwiches and eat out on that wonderful balcony! And it’s just an elevator ride, or walk down the stairs to get to the beach, which, we think, is the prettiest stretch of the beach in Miramar and Destin! Needless to say, we can’t wait to go back next year!!

Very nice property

  • 4 of 5

Good location, a very enjoyable experience. This property is good for a small number of people. Kitchen and other spaces kind of small, but was OK for four adults. The property is clean and well maintained. Highly recommended.

Crystal Sands 314B

  • 5 of 5

The view from this condo is amazing!! Location was perfect.

We would have liked to have had more seating in the living room and maybe a king bed in the master would be nice. Hurricane Nate visited us during our stay.The beach was closed to swimming for a few days and we lost power one night. We made the best of the situation and played board games and put a puzzle together. It was much needed family time.

I appreciate Jami keeping me up to date on the weather alerts.

Overall our stay was fantastic!

The perfect place to enjoy the perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure to enjoy this beautiful condo for the second year in a row. Jami makes the rental so easy and is very attentive to any e-mail or call. Communication is very easy and she responds very quickly to messages or e-mail. The location is fantastic, local shopping and restaurants and you never even have to deal with the main Destin traffic nightmares. Beautiful views from the living room and only a few steps (or elevator ride) and you are right on the beach. There's no road traffic to cross. The new floors are stunning and the condo is furnished with just about everything you need to make yourself at home. This is the closest we have ever come to finding a perfect home away from home. In over 20 years of vacationing in the Destin area this is the 1st time we have stayed in the exact same place, and we look forward to spending many more vacations here as well. My only wish is that we actually owned this place so that we could live this dream every single day.

Great Condo, beautiful beach, friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

We visited in late August 2017 with 2 small kids and an extra adult. We had plenty of room, loved the unit, and we will certainly consider coming back again.

Most important feedback:

The owners were friendly and quick to respond. The unit was clean and looked as advertised. The complex was family friendly, and the access to the beach was easy, also plenty of parking. The view was absolutely stunning and worth every penny.

Other things:

I think the Master Bed was actually a queen, not a King, but it was fine for us. There are shampoo/conditioner/soap dispensers in each shower with high-quality stuff, so I would have skipped packing all of those items. There isn't a blender, we asked in advance and brought one but didn't end up using it. They leave a few trash bags which was nice. If we had stayed longer we would have needed to buy a few more. I also appreciated the tasteful decorations.

We definitely left with very good memories of the location, the beach, and the vrbo experience.
