About Suzanne Hardison

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!

Suzanne Hardison purchased this condo in 2015

Why Suzanne Hardison chose Crystal 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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Great view. Close walk down stairs to ocean.

Great property located so close to the ocean. Great part of town. Good place to walk around in the mornings. Balcony was nice. Master toilet needs fixed, as every time you flush it, it sings loud. Thanks for a great week! Adam Pollert

Owner's Response: You have highlighted what we enjoy most about our condo and its location. Walking, running, and biking along Scenic Highway 98 is a favorite way to get a little exercise or just see the sights. Most importantly, the main attraction, the beach, is indeed close. It truly is down a short flight of steps. Finally, the view from our home's balcony is fabulous any time of day. (Also, thank you for letting us know about the toilet "singing." It has been repaired.) Thanks for choosing our home!

It was a great place for a family with children!

  • 5 of 5

We had the time of our lives! The condo was lovely and had all we needed. Access to the beach and the view from our balcony was amazing! The pool was also awesome with a cover to get the little ones out of the sun. We had a wonderful time and the owners were very sweet when ever I contacted them.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our home for your grandchildren's first visit to the beach! Although we note in our listing how close and convenient the beach is, guests always still seem a little surprised. The view from the condo truly is spectacular! We know capturing the perfect family beach photo for your Christmas card was on your "to-do" list. Hopefully, you were successful!

Nice area! Beautiful beaches and clean unit!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! My husband and I were just taking a few days to celebrate an anniversary and it was perfect. The unit was very clean and no real issues. The whole time we were there I was thinking how our kids would love this place, there is a cute room upstairs that has4 twin beds (2 trundles) along with another king sized bed. Next time we are bringing the kiddos with us. The only issues were that the other units were being repaired while we were there, replacing balaconies and such, but it didn't really affect us and I figured this is probably a slow time during the year....the beach setup was a bonus and this part of the beach is just lovely. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for sharing your place with us!

Owner's Response: Yes, please do, bring your children back next time!. That bedroom with the twin trundles was designed to be a kid's room. We've added two giant bean bags since your visit! Unfortunately, there is never a good time for construction at the beach. We were unaware that project had begun. Thank you for understanding.

Owner's Response: It is so wonderful to have our condo described as an "amazing property!" The quick, easy access to the beach is what make Crystal Villas such a great complex. Also our home's double sliding glass doors on the balcony, provide an up-close view of the Gulf and all the happenings on the beach. Thank you for choosing our home for your family's vacation.

Great Wedding / Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was the perfect place for us to stay while attending our son's wedding. We had all the comforts of home so we could concentrate on the wedding festivities. After the wedding, we were able to relax and enjoy the beach. The beach access was great and so were the beach chairs and umbrellas. The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching all the beach activities. The location was also great for all the restaurants and shopping spots. We had the most wonderful time during our weddingcation and are looking forward to renting this condo again in the future. Thanks for providing us such a beautiful home away from home.

Owner's Response: Destin certainly provided a lovely backdrop for your son's wedding. We are pleased our home could be part of your "weddingcation." How smart to include some R & R time following the wedding festivities. You highlighted many of the things that we feel makes our condo ideal. We look forward to welcoming you back again.
