Overview

About the property

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 glass tile backsplash and new appliances. 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 Michael and Tracy D'Avella

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.

Why Michael and Tracy D'Avella chose Crystal Beach

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful with high end finishes and decor. It was very clean and had everything we could ever need. The location is great in an exclusive neighborhood and right across the street from the beach. The views from the balcony of the gulf are wonderful. We'll be back and we highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being our guests and for taking the time to write a review. We agree that the condo is a great place to stay with an excellent location directly across the street from the beach access. We do wish you would have called, emailed, or texted us about the towels. We have an excellent cleaning lady who would have come by with more immediately. This had to have been an oversite. We are always available for our guests. We strive to make everything perfect for your vacation and that could have been remedied within minutes.

Property was as advertised. Great view and close to beach and Destin activities.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Close to beautiful Crystal beach and just about anything you wanted to do in Destin. The location was perfect.

The down side was that we wish that more of personal items were included like a hotel does hence the 4 stars instead of 5. We had to have our own shampoo and other toiletries and no dishwashing liquid was available. There was a dishwasher with detergent. We were allotted one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom for 4 people for 3 days. And one roll of paper towels. Other condos usually supply item as such.

There were plenty of cooking utensils, although we usually ate out at the fine restaurants around the Destin area.

Those were the only complaints we had, otherwise it was a lovely, clean, and beautiful condo with a great location.

The owners have been very kind and communicated with us through the whole process.

Owner's Response: We thank you for being our guests, are glad you enjoyed your three night stay, found the location to be perfect, lovely, clean, and beautiful. We appreciate those wonderful compliments along with the kind words about us, the owners. We do let all of our guests know in that this is condo and not a hotel. Well in advance, we also let all of our guests know that there will be one starter roll of toilet paper in the baths and one roll of paper towels. There is not a daily maid service to add more toilet paper. We let all of our guests know that if they are not bringing the extra items they will need such as toiletries or extra toilet paper there are several grocery stores very nearby. The cleaning lady puts out one dishwasher starter pod and there is a very large bottle of dishwasher soap located under the kitchen sink. Again, thanks for being our guests.
