You will love this gulf -front condo located on the beautiful white sands of Crystal Beach. You can enjoy the view and the sounds of the Gulf of Mexico from the third floor balcony. If you prefer, you can stroll the lovely beach or bike ride, walk, or jog along the paved sidewalks/bike trails of Scenic Gulf Drive. This well-appointed condo has 2 king size beds (one is in the master and one in the second story loft) and another bedroom with 1 queen bed and a twin daybed with trundle, and 2 full bathrooms. Our maximum occupancy is 8.
We are Barry and Suzanne Hardison and we are thrilled to have a oceanfront vacation condo in Destin! For 5 years, we owned and rented through VRBO a 1 bedroom condo across the street from the beach. We feel blessed to have this larger, beach-side home which accommodates more family and allows us to consider our young teenagers' desire to bring friends to the beach.
Our family looks forward to any time in Destin. The sound of the waves and the beautiful white sand are so enticing. In fact, our children have even braved the winter waters of the Gulf! There's never a bad day when you are at the beach!

Crystal Villas is in the perfect location. In our opinion, it is on the "quiet end" of Scenic Highway 98. This smaller, three story complex is in a prime location to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. You can be as busy or relaxed as you want in the convenient condo.
The sense of calm and relaxation our family experiences at the beach is priceless. Our teenage children love to swim in the ocean and pool, and we always enjoy our morning runs as a family on the walking/bike path. Window shopping and eating fresh seafood top our list of "must-do" excursions away from the beach. It is always a blessing to be here.
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. It was clean as a whistle, well appointed, and the host was very communicative both before and during our stay. Everything you need for a great beach trip is right here!
Everything about the property was as advertised. The unit was clean, well maintained, very accessible, and close to shopping, restaurants, and other services. The beach was private, clean, and quiet. The view was unobstructed in three directions and perfect for sunrise photos. The cleaning deposit was returned to my account within a few days of our stay. We would recommend this unit to others and plan to rent again in the future.
We were very happy with our stay at Crystal Villas. The condo was clean and tastefully decorated. The view was fantastic. The beach was fantastic. Would stay here again if available. Liked being on what seemed to be the more quiet end of Destin. Great place for the family!!
Our family decided to do a last minute trip for fall break. I contacted Suzanne on Friday and she was very quick to respond. The entire process was very quick and easy and we arrived on Saturday with no problems. Our 2 kids (9 & 7) LOVED the upstairs even though we had to sleep upstairs with them as my younger child was scared of being so far away. The balcony & view of the beach was amazing! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and we felt right at home. I was a little nervous about the pool situation b/c normally our kids spend lots of time at the pool but it was no big deal at all. We stayed at the beach ALL day long each day with I think 2 short visits to the indoor pool. It was rather cold.
Overall we had an amazing trip and our family would definitely stay at this condo again. It's so nice to be right on the beach and the beach chairs were an added plus!
After years of staying at SunDestin, we weren't able to find a 3 bedroom for our stay, so decided to try something different. Lucky us to get introduced to Crystal Dunes! Great little complex with the beach so close, it wasn't a big ordeal to go down (as it is at SunDestin). We loved having the beach umbrella and chairs included in rental, and we also enjoyed the beach toys stored in the condo. Everything was clean and comfortable, and when we cooked, the kitchen had everything we needed. I do want to mention that the upstairs configuration is a little odd: you walk up the stairs into the loft area, which is lovely and spacious. Through the bedroom you find a bathroom on the right, and then another small space that does have beds, but the slanted roof makes it kind of cramped. Looks like maybe it is converted attic space? Much more comfortable, I think, for kids, than for the adults we had in the room. Another thing I want to be sure and mention is how great Suzanne is as a host. When I came to her with the problem of where to park our third vehicle (only 2 parking spaces are included in rental), she went above and beyond to help me find a safe (free) place to park the car. What a relief! Everyone in our party agreed that we'd rather return to Crystal Dunes than to SunDestin. We'll definitely be back!
This condo was beautiful with nice furnishings and comfortable beds and furniture. The view was spectacular! We loved the floor to ceiling wall of windows! We would definitely stay here again!
