Top-Floor Crystal Sands Destin Condos

Ultimate Comfort and Unrivaled Gulf Views in Destin's Premier Vacation Destination

Posted on 5/16/2023

Crystal Sands is a wildly popular destination for family beach vacations located on Scenic Highway 98 in a highly sought-after part of Destin. This three-story tall Gulf-front complex is aptly named since it faces a white ribbon of "crystal sands" beside the glowing jewel-toned gulf. The atmosphere here is decidedly laid back, which is somewhat surprising since this superb locale is near everything Destin offers. Swimming pools are located at each of the two buildings comprising Crystal Sands, and one is seasonally heated. Simmering Hot Tubs also provide soothing, pampered relaxation. A wide promenade is centered on the bright sugary white beach providing panoramic 180-degree views of the gorgeous gulf. Grilling stations are also provided to create your fun version of a 'Surf n Turf' cookout. One and two-bedroom properties at Crystal Sands accommodate six to a dozen carefree beachgoers.

Ocean Reef offers nine Gulf-front vacation rentals at Crystal Sands on the top third floor of the two buildings, each with an open staircase leading up from the open main floor living space to a bright, spacious loft with extra guest quarters. The vaulted ceilings in these two-level residences accentuate a spacious look while filling them with abundant natural light. The open living areas in each include a wall of sliding glass doors leading out to a furnished balcony where you can enjoy your favorite tropical drinks with tasty treats while experiencing the sensational vistas. These two-bedroom vacation rentals can accommodate eight to twelve fortunate guests with multiple sleeping arrangements. Besides the extra space, the gulf views from these premier placements are quite stunning. Here is a brief look at each of our top-floor Crystal Sands Destin condos.
