We were moved from a second floor unit close to the pool that was noisy due to kids running around above us and also being right by the pool to 301B which is a third floor two story end unit. Georgeanne was a lifesaver! It was so peaceful and lived up to what we needed in a vacation- relaxation!!! The... More

This is the third time in 5 years that my family had stayed at Crystal Sands. I would rate our first two experiences as "good". Our most recent stay was a different story. The carpet in our condo was disgusting. It was all matted down and stained. The furniture in the bedroom was outdated. The mattress was old and stained.... More

Nice to open patio doors and walk onto the beach. But could not really use patio because the chairs provided are both broken. One sliding door screen is rusted and broken. The carpet is absolutely filthy, with small blood stains , cigarette burns . When we opened the pull out bed in the living room we found a large spill... More

This was our first trip to Destin and we absolutely loved this condo! We stayed in 111B and it was on the first floor. It was very clean and updated with a gorgeous view of the water. We will definitely stay again on our next family vacation.

The view and the beach is very nice but the rooms are very dirty. Our ceilings fans are 80% covered with dust,the air vents are gross and we found roaches in the kitchen and bedrooms. The chairs outside are missing legs. Overall the room is dirty and it could use a update. This is our 17th coming to Destin and... More

This is our first trip to Destin (for a wedding in a nearby Henderson Park Inn - wonderful venue) and this condo was wonderful. We stayed at unit 111B and it was very clean. We love the location and the convenient of the first floor condo. We have a toddler and being on the first floor was a must for... More

We stayed in room 214 in building A. We rented directly from the units owner. It was a nicely updated unit although it had some wear and tear which can be expected when you're renting to a new family every week. I will say that the cleanliness of the unit could have been a bit better. A beach condo is... More

We stayed a week here and our 2nd floor condo was clean, well-stocked with plenty of towels, and the beach chairs/umbrella that was included made it very nice. We enjoyed sipping coffee and reading on the balcony as we watched the waves. The only down side is that we were near the pool and it was noisy; the bedroom is... More

105B is exactly what we needed and wanted! It is incredibly clean and completely updated. You could not possibly get closer to the beach. It is the perfect area in Destin, close enough to everything but not too close. The agent was great to work with. It was the perfect stay!

We stayed in 101B, loved the location & convenience to the beach. The condo was ok, but had correctable problems: slow draining bath tub, musty (maybe cigarette smoke), dated televisions, uncomfortable patio furniture, pots & pans were very worn, needs new mattress, no pantry. We would probably stay here again, the price was great & the issues were just inconvenient.
