Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Crystal Beach - Dune Legacy

GULF FRONT fully remodeled end unit in private condominium w/only 27 units!

MAGNIFICENTLY remodeled Gulf front condo in the highly sought after Emerald Dunes condominium! Enjoy the Emerald Coast from this beautiful 2nd floor end unit with promises of coastal memories for a lifetime. Expansive Gulf views come standard with our condo allowing for picturesque sunrises & sunsets to start and end each day. This condo sleeps (8) enjoying (2) bedrooms (each having views of the Gulf), a set of hallway bunks and a sleeper sofa. There are (2) full bathrooms (Master having its own and 2nd/guest bath having an access door directly into 2nd bedroom). Highlighting the condo are the open & spacious living, dining & beautiful kitchen areas. These wonderful entertaining areas have all the views you come to the Florida Gulf Coast for. Whether you're preparing a gourmet meal, savoring a shrimp or flavorful cocktail or just lounging around, ONLY END units enjoy this extra spacious entertainment area making comfort an ease. The stunning kitchen is fully stocked, enjoying all new stainless steel appliances and other important kitchen musts. This includes a coffee maker, Kuerig, toaster, blender, pots, pans, baking gear and much more. And yes, there is a large pantry, ready to hold food for an army of beach goers. Dining has options as well, choose to eat at the expansive bar, dining table or enjoy a meal on the covered gulf front balcony. Other condo features included: brand new front load washer & dryer, flat screen TV's in living room & bedrooms, jacuzzi tub in Master bath, (4) beach towels w/beach bag & for all rentals that fall between March - Oct, (1) free beach set-up w/on site rental company (includes two chairs & umbrella). As a final bonus, the elevator is optional! This condo is located up only one flight of stairs positioned right across from the East stairwell (I LOVE THIS THE MOST:)

Emerald Dunes is a private/gated condominium with amenities that include the large pool, hot tub, gas BBQ grills, boardwalk showers, bathrooms and beach attendants. These amenities (including the vast beach) are private and are for the enjoyment of Emerald Dunes guests & owners only.

You can't beat the building's location either. Emerald Dunes is located on the West end of Scenic Highway 98 which has minimal traffic and plenty of essential attractions within walking distance. Just across the street is one of the best coastal cuisine restaurants, Camille's, especially known for their delectable sushi & intimate bar. And talk about coffee convenience, the Java Cafe is right below Camille's, ready to serve your morning Joe and is also open for lunch. Publix(grocery) and Destin Commons (one of the largest shopping & entertainment malls), is located within (2-3 minutes) which holds a bowling alley, movie theater, restaurants & galore of shopping opportunities.

Finally, one of the more notable characteristics that sets Emerald Dunes apart from most condominiums is the private low density setting. There are only 27 units with all amenities under coded supervision and a parking lot with plentiful space. Come and create Destin memories for a lifetime! Remember you only live once, so 'Don't Live to Work, Work to Live!'

Also, I speak to all guests prior to accepting reservations to ensure we have all questions answered and to go over all details for the reservation. We want to welcome guests who will be responsible, accountable and considerate of our vacation home. So please feel free to call me at anytime with any questions prior to requesting a reservation. Thank you again and we look forward to you and your family allowing us to accommodating you stay here in beautiful Destin, FL!

P.S.: For larger groups or family reunions we also own the opposite West end unit, Emerald Dunes #205, VRBO #328262. It has the exact same layout (2br & 2bth, sleeps 8) and was just purchased & updated. If "bigger is better", you may love our newest venture. It's a beautiful 2661 sq ft, Gulf front penthouse (3) buildings away in Dunes of Crystal Beach. It's VRBO #800661 and is a 5br 4bth "Legend " of a property. Also, if a beach house works for you, we have VRBO #2054 located just a block away. It's a 3BR + tower bedroom w/(2) twin beds, 3 1/2 Bath FL beach cottage in Clipper Cove, again just one block away from these condos.

Great property and even better location

  • 4 of 5

First of all, this is a wonderful condo with everything you need to enjoy your time at the beach. I will start with the property itself. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The pool was very comfortable. The beach is unbelievable and the chair attendant was very helpful. No complaints whatsoever. Now for the condo itself. The end units are certainly the preferred units and I can see why. From the second you walk in the door, you'll love this place. You also notice how well maintained it is. Randy was very accessible and his team did a great job. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean with the amenities you would expect from a nicer property like this. Even though we did not use them, the hallway bunkbeds would be perfect for younger children. The kitchen is great and well appointed. Really liked being on the 2nd floor. Here's my reason for a four star rating: the beds. They are just too hard. I tossed and turned all night. If you like very firm beds, you will love this place. I really do plan to rent this property again despite the beds. Heck, maybe by then, they'll have new ones! I do highly recommend this property!! Here's my take on a few restaurants: Boathouse (over on the harbor) meh... it was okay. 790 on the Beach (about three block east) it was okay, service was good. Camille's on Crystal Beach (across the street) excellent food and service. That's about all we did other than the beach, which is why we were there. Awesome place!!

great get away

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Emerald Dunes a few times now but in different units. The location just can't be beat! Easy access to wherever you need to go. This unit was very nice. The beach side stayed much cooler than the bedrooms. We like to be cool when we sleep but that was our only issue. Everything else was great. I really appreciated the touch points by the realtor or unit manager(?). Just nice to be checked on and ensure that the stay is good. We also got new living room furniture while we were there!! That's a first:) The unit also provides a few beach items which is a very nice touch verses buying stuff or dragging it from home. Again, location can't be beat and it is a very well furnished unit.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Although we were only in town for a couple of days, this condo was exceptional. It was definitely one of the cleanest condos we've stayed in! I absolutely loved the decor. We slept as good as if home in our own beds. And of course the view is always a plus! Would definitely stay here again!

Emerald dunes is located in the most ideal area of Crystal Beach & Scenic Hwy 98. The West end has less congestion & traffic. There are no major commercial buildings within site of property, keeping a more intimate vacation venue. There is so much within a one mile radius of the property including conveniences like Publix grocery and (3) local restaurants. Other attractions within this one mile area include: The Henderson Beach Inn (big wedding venue) The Henderson Beach State Park, major shopping center/Destin Commons (that has just expanded), Rave Movie Theater, 3 golf courses, ice cream shops, walking/jogging paths, bike & scooter rental adjacent to a coffee shop located just across the street from Emerald Dunes and of course the best beaches in the world! I can keep going & going but I believe there are a few things yet to be discovered on your own:)
