Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms / 2 Baths / Sleeps 6 / Includes Beach Service

This Crystal Dunes end unit is in a TERRIFIC LOCATION, only steps away from the beach and offers panoramic views. The spacious open living area is an added bonus. Recent renovation includes new stainless appliances and granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths to give platinum-rated upgrades to this already beautiful unit.

Because this Crystal Dunes unit is a first floor corner unit, it has the ambiance of a beach home rather than a condo. It is light-filled, having many more windows than the average unit. More windows means better view of the beach! It is the perfect condo for families with children or ideal for couples. Park next to the unit and unload luggage and groceries within steps of the door! No Elevator needed!

Professionally decorated with Caribbean artwork and oil paintings, this Crystal Dunes unit features high ceilings and crown moldings. Watch the sunrise from the bay window in the sitting area or a spectacular sunset from the living area. Only the Crystal Dunes end units boast two living areas.

This unit has two (2) master bedrooms with a king bed in each! One sofa converts to a queen size bed and built-in bunk beds in the hallway are ideal for children. Kitchen is large and features four bar-stools near the large dining table for six. The spacious living/dining area can seat a group comfortably for conversation in two open living areas. this unit is both exquisite an extraordinary!

Destin's most beautiful beach, Crystal Beach , is just a few steps from the back door. Beach attendants will set up an umbrella and 2 chairs for you early each morning (during the season) at no extra charge. we cannot say enough good things about Crystal Dunes at Crystal Beach and hope that it will become your family's special vacation spot for years to come.

About Jim & Gail Doré

We purchased our unit from a couple who took wonderful care of the place as if it was their primary home. Gail & I love the beach. After growing up in New Orleans and coming to Destin numerous times, we decided to purchase a place close to the waters edge so we could smell the salt air and enjoy the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is our place to catch our breath and rejuvenate (look it up).

Jim & Gail Doré purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jim & Gail Doré chose Crystal Beach

This property in ideally situated because it is only steps away from the beach and is located in a family atmosphere. While away from the primary and busy area of Destin proper, the noise, traffic and activities are only moments away.

What makes this condo unique

Crystal Dunes is a 6 story condominium. Located within minutes of fine food, entertainment, shopping, and sports activities. The best thing? It's not in the middle of huge high rises looking down upon us!

Excellent all the way around!

  • 5 of 5

This condo speaks volumes on convenience, cleanliness and comfortableness. This condo is on the 1st floor which is a huge plus on getting the groceries, luggage and small children into. You can park you vehicle literally a few steps from the back entry door. If going to the beach you are steps away from the staircase and feet washing area. Not to mention great views. Cleanliness is a number one on the list for me! This unit is kept up quite well. This unit is quite spacious and gives everyone a little wiggle room. I have been to condos where you almost run into people walking in the kitchen. Also the linens and beds are very comfortable. The owners are very nice and quick to respond. Our experience all around was five stars!! We would come back again and again!

6 years and counting.....

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at this marvelous condo for the last 6 years. Jim and Gail are always great to work with, and their place is fantastic. My 5 year old daughter calls the condo our "beach home", because we have stayed here every year since she was born. Destin, is wonderful, the condo is perfect, I can't say enough good things about it. We will be back next year!

Wonderful Condo/Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely perfect. It was very convenient being on the first floor and being able to be on the beach in seconds. An added benefit to being on the ground floor is the grass area in front of the porch. It was great to have that extra space for the kids to run around in. The beach service was wonderful as well. The condo itself was very nice and the kids loved the bunk beds. We would definitely stay here again.

Destin jewel

  • 5 of 5

You will not find a better location in Destin! We LOVED being so close to the beach. It was so easy to go back and forth to the beach that we didn't need to carry a cooler, bag, etc out with us. The condo was very clean and nicely decorated. Loved the master shower! I don't usually sleep well when I'm on vacation but the bed was so comfortable that I didn't miss a wink. I also enjoyed being so close to shopping in Destin commons. We have stayed at many places in Destin and this one is at the top of our list. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing week.
