Crystal Villas A-3 is a wonderfully decorated 1 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath beach front, first floor condo in the Crystal Beach area of Destin.

The panoramic gulf views are incredible from this first floor condo!

Area Attractions: 

Crystal Villas is also close to Henderson Beach State Park. This property not only rests right on the beautiful Destin beach, but also has easy access to over a mile of undeveloped beach just a short walk away.

In the popular Crystal Beach community of Destin, you can enjoy wonderful dining at Camille's (within walking distance) and being centrally located to other great dining and the best shopping Destin has to offer all within a short walk away.

If you are near Miramar Beach, the snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Dolphin Reef, deployed in 2017.  Located just 685 feet straight out from the Miramar Regional Public Beach access (by Pompano Joe's), it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Dolphin Reef is at a depth of 12-20 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy! 

Close by is Destin Commons, a beautifully landscaped, pedestrian-friendly area and a great family venue where children will love to play in the interactive water fountains. Also for the younger guests, a nautically/pirate themed outdoor playground features a 1,750 square foot soft play area with various creatures from the sea, slides, and a treasure chest!  Destin Commons also has a mini-train for the kids. Destin Commons features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Godiva Chocolates, AMC Movie Theaters and Bass Pro Shop.

Did amazing! Place was nice and clean! Only cons was there wasnt an oven mit to get things out of the oven with and the bedroom could use a ceiling fan in the future! Lol Other than that was a great view of the beach! We will definitely miss it and will be back again in the near future! Was a wonderful experience and great honeymoon! Thank you so much!

We’ve stayed in this condo many times over the years, and while the condo is nice, it’s definitely time for some updating. The rust in the kitchen is kind of gross. And the shower felt dirty. The rooms and mattresses were very nice though.

Our stay was great, but the A/C would not get colder than 76 so sleeping at night was a little difficult. Other than that we had a great time!

Our place had a great location but condo could use some updating. However, RealJoy reached out to make sure our stay was going well but we didnt need anything.

We have a young family of 5 and this worked perfectly for us! We enjoyed being able to walk out of our room to the pool or out the patio doors to the ocean!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Literally being steps from the beach was perfect. We could sit on the patio and listen to the ocean or we could take a few steps and on be on the beach. We thought the condo was quaint and cozy. We also enjoyed being so close to all the eateries!

This Unit was conveniently located for beach and pool use. A few items that the owner needs to be aware of: •Unit was not vacuumed prior to our arrival (debris was found on the floors and rugs, including two screws and a piece of splintered lumber). •No key to lock/unlock rear sliding door from beach-side. •No coffee filters and/or basket for coffee machine. •The door between the kitchen and hallway had knobs, but no latch hardware. It was impossible for the door to stay shut.

Everything was great. The only thing I would suggest is having 2 chairs out on the balcony. We had 1 when we got there, I sent a request and it took 3 days. Other then that it was great.

The location of our unit, Crystal Villas A3 cant be beat. Having said that, a few comments are in order. The unit had a few problems that we simply coped with: 1 The door lockset between the bedroom toilet and the laundry room was faulty and requires repair or replacement. 2 The large front burner on the range is inoperative 3 The kitchen furnishings are austere. We used the oven and couldnt find either an oven mitt or potholder to use. It appears that the silverware is the minimum amount necessary 4 We wanted to fix a salad for our family; however, a large bowl was not available. 5 The skillet was of poor quality. It may have been non-stick teflon but it didnt work very well and we had problems cooking with it.

It was a wonderful place, the beach access is incredible, I would have liked to be able to have my tent set up since we are a family of 6 and the umbrellas dont offer enough shade for all of us, some minor updating wouldnt hurt in the bathrooms (a little more modern), and possibly a tv for the bunkbeds (I only had one that slept there becuase there wasnt a tv). Very clean place, beds arent bad at all, the views are amazing.
