Crystal Beach Penthouse!

Welcome to Bob's Place condo on Crystal Beach! We have a new video! Check it out on your lap or desk top computer.  It will be third in the photos section.  

Our Penthouse at Crystal Beach, "Bob’s Place" has a new kitchen and two new baths. Our mission is to be a major contender for your next beach vacation! This three bedroom, third floor condo, with corner windows, directly on the beach will take your breath away.  Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance, a short bike ride or drive. Whole Foods and Publix are five minutes away in the Destin Commons area along with movie theaters, bowling alleys and all sorts of great entertainment. When you check into Bob's Place you'll find even more suggestions in our welcome book as to the best dinner specials and happy hours in our area. 

There are few places in the world where you can catch the sunrise and the sunset from one spot. This is possible at Bob's Place as we face south and are right at water's edge. There’s nothing quite like this beach and if you're into photography, you will never get more incredible shots than on our beach at sunset. We provide complimentary Seasonal Beach Service (April 1- Oct. 30) which includes one beach umbrella and two chairs. Should you need more, there's usually chairs,  etc. in our closet so check there before you hit the beach store.

*Charcoal grills and a picnic table are on the first floor. 
*We have free wifi, cable and a stockpile of DVDs. 
*There are two coffee makers: one drip and one for K-cups. Bring your favorite flavor.
*A fully stocked kitchen lets you can play master chef or just make a sandwich. 
*Bathrooms sport shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispensers so no need to bring those items. 
*There’s also laundry detergent for the washer/dryer and cleaning supplies. 

 We hope you consider Bob’s Place for your next beach vacation. We will work very hard to make you a loyal guest for this year and all the years to come for your “toes in the sand” adventures. Some ask about the name of our condo. In loving memory of my father-in-law who left us for a better place in early 2017. We think he would smile. :-) We do not offer any refunds for any reasons , except a named Hurricane. Should you have a concern regarding fulfilling your travel commitment , please purchase travel insurance thru a company like Alianze, etc. It will cover you for ANY trip interruption and is very inexpensive. My husband and I travel insure every trip and it has paid off handsomely several times.

This condo was excellent and in a great location. Just a short distance from most anything you wanted to do in Destin. It was right on the beach with a great view!

Beautiful condo with a magnificent view!    Mar 18, 2020

review star

We had a wonderful trip to Bob's Place! Cherry is such a gracious, wonderful host and definitely went above and beyond by recommending places, being available for questions and providing extras like detergent, cleaning supplies and shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the showers. The view from the condo is absolutely stunning. The corner window is a great spot to watch the sun go down. In the morning, you can sit on the balcony, watch the dolphins play in the ocean and listen to the waves crashing up on the beach while enjoying a delicious cup of coffee. The location was perfect for our family. Easy beach access. Not too far from restaurants and grocery stores. Nice place to walk and see the area. I really hope to come back again!

Cherry was a gracious host who kept in contact with me throughout our stay. This was our first solo vacation since my divorce so my girls and I really appreciated the condo. Pictures perfectly matched the property. Will definitely try to stay here again should we come back for another beach vacation.

Our stay at Bob’s Place was wonderful. We did have an issue with the AC unit but they had someone there to look at it immediately and it was fixed the following afternoon. They room has amazing views of the beach and is very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. The bedrooms were comfortable. Overall it’s a 5 out of 5 for our week on the beach!!!

We loved Bobs Place    Jul 28, 2019

review star

We always go to Destin for our Beach Vacation. We usually stay in another condominium but found Bobs Place in Crystal Sands and had to book it! So glad we did! The condo has amazing views, sleeps plenty, spacious, and so convenient to the beach! We have never stayed on the beach before, usually across Scenic 98 and would need to cross the street but we were definitely spoiled this trip! I would absolutely recommend Bobs Place and will return! Cherry was amazing. She provided a tv in the 2nd room for our children to book an Xbox or Blueray to which was super sweet. She was very responsive to all questions and very helpful. It was a great trip overall!

Excellent Location and Views    Nov 07, 2018

This was an excellent experience! The condo has many upgrades, including resilient plank flooring and 120 degrees of ocean view. And I understand they’re continuing to upgrade the place. Add in the ideal location for Destin and a gracious and accommodating host... this property’s a winner!

Absolutely gorgeous condo. Better than expected    Oct 20, 2018

review star

Very clean and well maintained property. The pictures of this gem do not do it justice. This condo has it all, anything and everything you could possibly want or need, it’s here. The view, well the view was totally amazing, from sunrise to sunset the view was more than we ever expected. Very convenient to stores, shopping and family fun. The best part of this rental was Cherry Clifford and her husband. We had a few special circumstances and requests and they both went above and beyond to see that our needs were met. If I’m not mistaken, i believe that we were the first to book with Cherry as she had just recently purchased this condo but she was a real professional and went above and beyond. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedrooms were more than accommodating. All beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms were quite large. I can't say enough about Cherry and Bob. This was our first meeting but we feel like not have we only found our new “favorite” destination spot but that we have made some really good friends

Fantastic condo, great location, owners were great    Oct 15, 2018

review star

The condo was adorable, well decorated and very clean. Great top floor corner location with fantastic views. Condo stocked with things like coffee filters, salt and pepper, laundry detergent, beach chairs, umbrella, coolers and toys - all of which are a huge plus. Greeted with a bottle of champagne...very nice touch. The owner was very friendly & easy to work with and gave great dining recommendations . Would highly recommend this rental and definitely plan on returning.

Perfection! Paradise Found    Sep 15, 2018

review star

Such a wonderful corner penthouse right on the beach with off street parking. The views were fantastic, no matter what time of day it was. We loved sitting on the deck just relaxing over a beverage. Great way to start and end each day of our trip! Owners have thought of everything you might need on a trip to the beach: toys, chairs, toiletries, etc. The listing was very accurate and saved us from bringing along a lot of essentials. I would definitely recommend this penthouse as it is so close to everything Destin has to offer: great seafood restaurants, shopping, beach activities, etc.
