This comfortably furnished Gulf-front vacation residence includes one bedroom with a bonus loft and accommodations for six carefree beachgoers. The decidedly laid-back atmosphere in Crystal Beach is near everything Destin has to offer. Crystal Sands is aptly named since the twin three-story tall complex overlooks a white ribbon of “crystal sands” beside the dazzling jewel-toned gulf. A seasonally heated swimming pool is also provided for refreshing fun, and grilling stations are available for family cookouts.
As soon as you enter Crystal Sands 306A, you are embraced by the sparkling seascape that is framed by a wall of sliding glass doors. They beckon you to enjoy the breezy views on the beachfront balcony. A vaulted ceiling in the open living area accentuates a spacious look while a dove gray couch and love seat face the vivid vistas. One couch conveniently converts into a queen-sized sleeper sofa for added bedding. A rustic beach-washed trunk serves as a cocktail table, and a large flatscreen TV is mounted above a handsome hardwood credenza for entertainment. The lovely pale blue walls provide a serene setting that’s adorned with tropical prints, beach-inspired art, and nautical appointments. The coastal dining area includes a circular glass-topped table and four sway-backed chairs. Four regal white raised chairs sit beside a sleek black granite-topped bar for serving drinks and tasty appetizers. The ample kitchen has everything needed to create fun family meals when dining in.
The primary bedroom on this level has a sunny window, a king-sized bed with a decorative metal frame, and is accented by honey-toned hardwood furnishings. It has access to a full bath with a tub-shower combination that also serves as a powder room. The open staircase leads upstairs to separate family quarters. It includes a charming loft bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a full bath with a tub-shower combination, and a guest bedroom with two plush twin beds and two twin trundles. All rooms feature flatscreen TVs for evening viewing pleasure.
