Kick Back and Relax

After a long trip to the Gulf Coast, lay down on a comfy bed with a room lit up by the Florida rays and bask right from the condo. Unpack groceries or order them for delivery from Whole Foods Market or Publix Supermarket, just right across the highway. Fill that fridge with the best beach snacks, then head on over to one of the community pools with a cool drink while the kids make a splash. Float around and relax until sundown. Right before the sunset disappears, take everyone along the boardwalk to the sandy shores to see the colors in the sky dance on the water. Take in the moment and snap some portrait-perfect family pictures. You’ll want to remember this paradise made possible at the Crystal Sands condominium.


The Perfect Place

Crystal Sands 103A is located on the ground floor of the Crystal Sands 3 story condominium, with 48 units in total. This property offers direct check in and is 100% smoke-free both in and out of the unit. Upon arrival, guests will receive 2 parking spaces for vehicles and walk in to find an airy open floor layout. Down the hall is the half bathroom and a set of bunk beds, set into the wall, for young kids. Further on is the main bedroom, which hosts a king bed, plenty of drawer storage, a TV, and a connecting full bathroom. This allows for much needed parent privacy. The end of the hall opens to a connected kitchen, dining room, and living room, all lit up by the natural light shining in through the sliding glass doors that lead out to a Gulf front view. The kitchen area has all the essentials for a comfy stay, such as a fridge, K-Pod coffee maker, standard coffee maker, blender, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and utensils. Other kitchen perks include the bar side seating, allowing a seamless connection between this area and the entertainment area. Off to the side is a small formal dining area and then a living room with a TV, sofa sleeper, and plenty of places to sit. When not using the sofa sleeper as a bed, families can snuggle up and get some screen time along with peace and quiet. This unit also has a washer and dryer to keep those favorite outfits fresh. Out the sliding doors, guests can find a furnished patio and the salty smell of the Emerald Coast.


Catch Some Waves

This gated community keeps things easy and breezy. Off the patio, guests can find close access to the property’s 2 community pools, one with seasonal heating for those chilly months. These areas are equipped with plenty of seating and space for some poolside fun. There is also a connected boardwalk that leads to private beach access. A seasonal beach chair setup is available and includes 2 chairs and an umbrella to keep any unwanted rays away. Other outdoor amenities include beachside grilling areas and outdoor showers to wash the sand away after a long day of play.


Local Favorites

Crystal Sands condominium is right next to James Lee Beach, an open and airy public beach that provides 3 pavilions, 41 picnic tables, 9 dune walkovers, a playground, restrooms with changing rooms, and 166 parking spaces. Stay on this shore and swim to your heart’s content. After a long day, head over to The Destin Crab Trap to find a beachfront restaurant that both visitors and locals rave about. Their menu consists of local seafood delicacies and comfort food, perfect for the whole family. Newman-Dailey guests can receive an order of free hot crab dip with their meal purchase! The Destin Craft Bar is another local favorite location nearby. This gastropub features an array of craft brews and taps, a large menu with items prepared from scratch, as well as indoor and outdoor seating. Check out the local Pet Supplies Plus pet store right down the block to see some cute and cuddly animals or pick up a treat for that special 4 legged friend at home.
