Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Great property in Crystal Beach area of Destin....THE PLACE TO BE! -This is the nicest condo in Caribbean Dunes - newly renovated, floor, refrigerator, tile, furniture, luxury linens, lighting, paint, even air conditioning !!

EVERTHING is new, very clean, and extremely comfortable. There are two master suites each with their own private bath (one with a jacuzzi tub). One is on the main floor and one is the spacious upstairs loft for plenty of privacy. There is a new queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. Six can sleep comfortably and nobody is stuck with a bunk in the hall. The kitchen is quite large so there is plenty of room for the chefs in your group. We have just added beautiful blue glass tile and a new refrigerator. There are plenty of pot, pans, and of course dishes, silverware, and glassware. The large balcony has terrific views of the Gulf and we have added lovely 18" travertine tile so it is smooth on your bare feet. Relax and enjoy the view, nice breeze, and sunshine.

Walk to the end of the block to Camille's, one of Destin's favorite restaurants, and enjoy a cocktail or a nice meal.

About the Owner

We came for a vacation and fell in love with Destin. We began doing vacation rentals in 2007. It gives us great joy to rent to our vacationing guests and hear about what a wonderful time they had in Destin. Most of our guests come back year after year. We feel like they are family. We are always available for our guests and take great pride in giving each of them excellent customer service. Making wonderful family memories in Destin is what it is all about. We have so many with our own children.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

we received our key to happiness and when we arrived the place did not disappoint! We had two small kids so I had to move some breakables off the table, but other than that, the place was very kid friendly. the pool was nice and clean and the grounds kept up very well. parking was great as it was very convenient and you always had a spot. what is nice is the ease and neighborhood feel. We walked to the outback and the gas station for an evening snack. Starbucks was at the mall which was across the street, very easy to order and pick up breakfast! Plenty to do in Destin and other than a brief 4 hour rain event, we were never without something to see or do. The place is stocked with kitchen equipment and though we never used it, it was all in great working order. The best part was the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners. They always responded with questions and you felt at ease letting asking questions and always received quick responses. As far as cleanliness, the condo is in great shape and up to date. The walls were sound proof and I never heard my guests! (Hope they didn't hear our kids!). The place could use a better cleaning service as it did need a bit of a clean up when we arrived but we didn't mind, and we are a bit over the top on expectations... The other thing that may be good to know is that when you go to the beach, you can use the gate from across the street or the public access. we used the public access as it was 20 steps away. That said when you get on the beach, the condos on the beach rope off sections of the beach with threatening signs of trespassing if you walk on their section. This leaves you with quite a walk to get to an area to set up. We set up on the public area one day and it was fine, but if you think you can set up across the road you do so at the risk of harassment. We walked through the private areas the entire time and never were approached. I think this whole thing of roping off a beach is a bit stupid. I get the whole idea of wanting to make your condo area secluded for your guests, but in the old days you just set up where you wanted and spaced yourself out. I never had issues finding a spot on the beach. So I hope destin bans this one day. Until then just keep that in mind. if you walk to the west of the beach it is really nice by the dunes. All n all it was a very nice place to stay and I do recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are glad that you enjoyed the condo and that everyone (especially the children) had a wonderful vacation. We take great pride in ownership and our goal is providing outstanding customer service and sharing with our guests properties that are comfortable, cozy and clean. We have used the same cleaning service for a number of years and we have come to know and realize that they are dependable and meticulous in their care of our properties. This is our commitment to all our guests. We want to ensure that each and every guest receives the best possible experience from us. There are 13 public beach access points within the city limits of Destin, eleven of which are city-owned facilities, one owned by the county and one owned by the state. Fortunately this condo is located directly by the Shirah Street public beach, so there is plenty of room to pitch an umbrella and enjoy the gulf. As for the beach access, gulf-front condos seasonally rope off their beaches for “exclusive” use of their guests (the ropes and signs disappear fall through spring). Approximately 60 percent of Florida coastline is now private. The “no trespassing” signs are there in the summer, however they do not and cannot stop through foot traffic on the shoreline. In fact, 20' feet from the mean high water mark by the beach is considered public, so while you might have a private beach, the part you probably want to sit on is considered public. While beachfront property owners in Florida generally have title to the dry sand beach down to the average high tide line, the ownership of property does not necessarily extend to what is referred to as wet sand beach. We try to stay well-informed on this topic for the benefit of all our guests. For a beach front option, you can always vacation at our gulf front Majestic Sun condo. You will find that newly renovated condo very inviting with wonderful views. Again, thank you for the review and the recommendation that this is a “very nice place to stay and that you do recommend staying here.”

What a great vacation! My family truly enjoyed our week stay at the Caribbean Dunes. The location was great. I loved being at the Crystal Beach end of Destin. It was close to everything that we were interested in. The 2 red flags on day 1 and 2 were disappointing, but didn't prevent us from enjoying the sand, view and dipping our feet. After that, nothing but beautiful water and weather. We used the public beach entrances and were just fine with that...just a short walk across the street to the beach. The unit was perfect for our family, clean, cool, and beautifully decorated. We will recommend this condo to our friends and family! Thanks again for letting us use your condo!

Great Location and Great People!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our weekend beach stay. It is in a great location, just a short walk away from delicious food (Camille's) and the beautiful beach! The owners showed great hospitality, and I will definitely keep them in mind the next time I'm planning a trip to Destin.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great location, clean and well furnished apartment.

Lots of help and advice from the owners.

Nice restaurants in walking distance.

The only quibble is the key to the private entrance to the beach. I can't see the point of it as you can only use the public beach.

The actual public beach entrance is only a few yards away and no messing with keys.

But overall, highly recommended .

Owner's Response: Thank you for being our guests and for the wonderful five star review. We love the location as well and feel that it can't be beat. We are always available for our guests and make certain to provide them with plenty of great information on Destin, the condo and things to do and see in the area. From here you can walk to Camille's, 790 On The Gulf, and several more wonderful restaurants. There are three beach entrances across the street from the condo. Two are public and one is the deeded gate. They are all great options.

From the Owner

Caribbean Dunes is at the quiet end of Old Scenic 98 and is absolutely relaxing. The area is known as Crystal Beach for the exceptionally clean clear water and sugar white sand. It is the best area of Destin. After staying in different areas ourselves this is where we knew we wanted to be. We are certain you will love it too.

From the Owner

We fell in love with this condo the minute we walked in the front door. It is larger than most we had seen. The kitchen is large and so is the balcony. The floor plan is unique with the two master bedrooms. We love that no one has to sleep in a hall bunk. The setting is lovely with tropical plants and flowers everywhere. It give you a wonderful feeling of rest and relaxation. You can hear the birds sing at this end of Destin. It's beautiful.
