crystal dunes 505

This condo has the most beautiful view, of sunrise and sunset. The home is clean, uncluttered, and tastefully decorated. Because I am a daily walker, I loved the blacktop path located right across the street. We appreciated that so many restaurants were minutes away. We had a problem figuring out how to use satellite TV on the livingroom TV but that's only because we're Roku users and it is a very different set up. This was our first trip to Destin, and a very positive experience.

While we absolutely love everything about Crystal Dunes and this unit, we did have concerns about the television issues. The instructions need to be better communicated. However, this will not keep us from returning year after year. We have already booked for 2024. Wonderful stay!

3 years in a row now staying at Crystal Dunes. Everything is always wonderful when we come down. One complaint I have is with the oven. We couldn’t get it preheated so we had to use it the convection way. Other than that, as always we enjoy our stay. Top notch cleanliness, quietness, & all around wonderful. Definitely will be back.

great location on the beach

5

The 3 bedroom and 3 bath condominium was great for our family trip that included kids, parents, and a grandparent. The property gave us easy access to the beach, restaurants, grocery store, and fun activities. A major plus is the private area on the beach just for the patrons of Crystal Dunes. Also, we really liked the well stocked kitchen, having 2 elevators, and the team of workers that cleaned the property every morning. The only negative was that signs around Crystal Dunes say it is a smoke free property but there seemed to a bit of a very faint smoke smell inside this unit. Not a deal breaker since half of the family could not smell it but definitely glad to have the allergy meds for the other half. We enjoyed our trip to Destin and will definitely return!!

Had a great stay at Crystal Dunes. TV in the main FR didn't work the whole trip, sent a message the first day and never saw anyone. TV's in the rooms worked, also internet issues but wasn't a big deal as we were not in the room much. Location is awesome, so easy getting to the beach and pool and everything local in Destin.
Without a doubt would recommend this place and will be back.

Our family loved this spacious condo. Such a beautiful view of the sandy white beaches and crystal clear water... We loved having two complimentary beach chairs with an umbrella reserved for us by the water everyday. The condo is very conveniently located. It’s very close to many grocery stores, shops, restaurants etc... We will definitely be back..

very nice but needs new skillets

Tucker GA

5

The unit is quite nice. It was the cleanest unit I've seen of all the rentals I've had in Destin/Miramar Beach. Some items/fixtures are a bit dated and there are minor issues (e.g., the patio door doesn't lock; a toilet paper holder being loose and not properly secured to the wall). The biggest issue was that the skillets were very scratched and way past their prime. It would be nice if the owner invested in just 2-3 new skillets/pans. Otherwise, the kitchen was surprisingly well stocked. Overall, a nice unit.

The communication was wonderful. I was texting with a real human on their text line.

The unit was the biggest we have stayed in in this building for a comparable price. Very very clean. Stocked with pool toys, beach toys, beach chairs. Easy checkin and check out.

Beach service is wonderful as always.

We are so excited to have found the unit we love best in this building so we immediately rebooked for next year. :)

Beautiful location on the pristine sand beach. This 5th floor unit makes the best of sunrise and sunset views while giving broad visibility up and down the coast. Peaceful and quiet, perfect balance of things to do/dine within walking distance and serene mornings from the comfort of your own private balcony.

Crystal Dunes 505 is a beautiful condo with an excellent view of the beach from the balcony. The condo is well equipped with all the things you will need for your stay. Stocked kitchen, beach chairs, linens. It was clean, and well kept. We would definitely stay again, and we would absolutely rent from Gibson Rentals again as well. They have excellent customer service and made us feel at home and exceptionally cared for. Thank you both to the owners and to Gibson for our truly memorable stay!!!

fantastic crystal dunes

Frisco TX

We had a great experience staying at Crystal Dunes unit 505 in September 2020. We were there for a long weekend to attend a wedding and we’re very happy with how conveniently located this resort was to restaurants and shopping. Besides being ocean front, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted so we didn’t even need a car.
The unit we stayed in was very clean, modern, and well kept. I’ve stayed at many resorts in Destin and this is the first one that was in perfect working order. I was also very impressed with Gibson Reservations as they were very fast to help us with questions and concerns as we arrived just after Hurricane Sally has passed through the area.
I would definitely recommend this unit to friends and family and hope to return soon.
