Why Kay Lea Darnell chose Crystal Beach
Our family has vacationed in Destin every year. We knew it was time to find a place of our own. We chose Crystal Sands because of it's location and the gorgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico from our private balcony.

Great property and great stay
We loved our unobstructed view of the beach from our private balcony. The condo was very nice and Kay, the owner, was very friendly and answered my questions promptly. It's a very nice, safe place to stay. We will definitely stay at her condo again.
Upon arrival, we had Difficultly locating the main office. We wasted a lot of time looking for it! There were No signs . It’s hidden down the main hallway . Man in office was not friendly at all! The one elevator they had stayed tore up part of the time. My son and daughter in law got stuck in it . Took 30+ minutes to get them out. Then the staff and maintenance guys acted like it was nothing! It was very hot besides! My husband had to walk over to building B to get the maintenance guy to come to building A to get them out! They were rude and unprofessional! My son who was stuck in elevator was on the phone with the staff during this time. The staff were arguing with my son asking him if it was a prank. They got aggravated at my son and was very rude to him during the time he was stuck in the elevator! After about 25 -30 mins, My son finally gave up and dialed 911. They were dispatching fire department and police when my husband arrived back with maintenance and got them out. It was so unorganized and chaotic ! My husband and son then met other guest in the hallway Who were leaving early stating they would never be back ! They had also gotten stuck on the elevator. It was very traumatic for my kids. The staff never even apologized . They acted like they didnt even care! We will never go back there . There were not enough mirrors in our condo for our ladies. We were all trying to share two mirrors! It was very clean though. The view was definitely a plus! Awesome view! We paid a lot of money for 4 nights. I just feel like the facility should have been a little more accommodating for their guest. Maybe replace the elevator! The lady we rented from was great! Most of this she has no control over. We did call and talk to her about it.
Great vacation rental, will definitely be back again! Close proximity to anything you would need. Beach not super crowded, which was a plus!
Destin beach condo
The condo was EXACTLY what we were looking for! Right on the beach. Plenty of room for us and our 4 grown children. We loved having coffee on the patio in the morning and cold drinks in the evening with the sounds of the ocean as our music. The kitchen could use a bit of stocking on table and cookware, but this is nothing to complain about as everything else was just great. If you're looking for updated, contemporary decor, this is not the place. If you're looking for a clean, roomy, accommodating, beach front, safe, place to hang your hat and make memories, this one is spot on! We will be back!!
