My family and I enjoyed staying in this condo. We liked the location on the beach, we liked that we were high enough up we could watch the dolphins swim by! The spa tub was a big hit! As well as the open kitchen concept! There was plenty of space for all to be comfortable!
Spectacular unit on Crystal beach!

This is truly a beautiful unit. Sitting right on Crystal beach you can't ask for a place in a better location. I really liked the gated parking and ease to getting to the unit.

We rented from Dec. 28-March 15 but, due to construction, we had to stay somewhere else for January. Then, when we moved in from February 1-March 15th,we could not even sit on the balcony, as construction was ongoing. As spring break approached, the workers quickened their pace but, January saw little progress and when we left mid-March, the balconies were still off limits. The condo itself had just been completely deep cleaned. Located on Scenic 98 making it much quieter and easier to get in and out of the parking lot,as you're not waiting for traffic to pass. Nice residential area, close to shopping, grocery stores and good restaurants. Any requests/problems were dealt with quickly. Too bad the pool is on the street side and doesn't get sun.

This condo more than exceeded our expections. It was beautiful, spacious and had everything our family was looking for. We will definitely stay in it again. The living area was so spacious for our entire family and the master bedroom and bathroom was a dream come true. Everyone was so friendly and the whole complex was extremely clean, from the walkway to the beach, the swimming pool and area surrounding it and the barbeque grills. We can't wait to come back!!! Everything was perfect and the location was great!!! The keyless entry to the room was wonderful as we did not have to constantly be looking for a key to take to the beach. Thank you owners of #503! We will be back.
Ok, but not as good as others we have stayed in when visiting De

Crystal Beach is a nice location. Crystal Dunes is a nice condo building but #503 was not up to our expectations. Furniture was uncomfortable. Two chairs seemed to be missing cushioned backs. Refrigerator was dated. Carpets in spots were dirty and frayed. Bath towels were limited. Master bed was hard and uncomfortable. Kitchen needs frying pans. Looks much nicer in the pictures than in person. Had to rent extra beach equipment or be an owner to have setup reserved. Otherwise first come first serve. Reserved setups had lots of space, non-reserved were cramped together at the ends of the property. Read more

We have vacationed in Destin many times over the past 15 years. We have stayed at Crystal Dunes #503 five or six times. We really enjoy the accomodations and convienence to shopping, resturaunts and activities. This year the weather was the best we have ever had - the water was great, no rain, sunshine all day and cool evenings. We had a great time.

Remember to provide the driveway gate security code to renters. We sat outside the complex for 30 minutes waiting for someone to leave (or arrive) that had access. We arrived at 8pm on a Sunday. No one at your office to call. We eventually found the gate code in a guest book inside the unit (the code changed every other month (i think)).
We have stayed in this unit before (and others in this complex), so we (and other family members) like the area and the units available through your company.
Crystal Dunes made our vacation absolutely perfect!

The condo was just lovely. The view from the balcony was breath taking. Everyone at the complex was so friendly. The best part was the condo is located on a quiet street and not on the busy highway. We plan to return next summer and hope to get #503.
Thanks again for helping us make wonderful family memories.

Best condo out of 5 times at the Crystal Dunes
Left on 07/27/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | Sylvia from Slidell
Everything about condo 503 was what we wanted. it was beautifully appointed, it had all of the amenities needed for a wonderful stay. The Crystal Dunes is the most beautiful view of Destin. My family and I had a wonderful time and will ask for this condo again on a recurring visit.
Best Place We've Ever Stayed!
Left on 07/22/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | arlingtonbeachbums
This was our 6th visit to the Destin area and our first time to stay at Crystal Dunes. The place was impecable! The sidewalks were professionally cleaned daily, beach set-ups were reserved for you by the staff (no waking up early and running down to make sure you got a good spot like at other condo's we've stayed), security was efficient and helpful, and our unit was immaculate! #503 was as nicely furnished as our own homes. No light blue walls and sailboat themes here folks! Hardwood floors, and modern decor throughout! The beach is beautiful and not too crowded but you do have to watch for public beach patrons who may set up shop right in front of your provided beach service chairs (security had warned us about this and it was never a problem for us). Apparently the 20 feet from the water to the beach is considered public beach! Never heard of this! We had a great time, and will definitely consider staying at this property again and in this exact same unit!
Very nice, roomy.

This condo is very nice. Plenty big with 3 bedrooms. The pool was a
liitle cold. I thought it was supposed to be heated, but it didn't feel that
way. Some of the staff at SR were a little rude, but I have never had
any trouble with them in the past. For some reason this property still
does not have keyless entry.... Need to update.
All in all, though, this is a nice place to stay. Right on the beach, not
a high-rise and on the old road.

My family has spent a week's vacation for the last four years (05,06,07,08) at Crystal Dunes in five different condoes each year(107, 304,306,502, and 503) and have had nothing but fun and pleasure. All accommodations have been great. It is a wonderful place for families to get together. The beach is great and well maintained and any service needed has been provided promptly. We will be returning in 2009. Read more

We have stayed at this condo twice now. We like the layout, furnishings, location, and roominess. We will stay there again in the future unless we decide to get a 4 bedroom.
