GULF-FRONT 3 bdrm/2 bth Luxury Condo on 6th floor of The Inn at Crystal Beach

Welcome to the best deal on the Gulf Coast- Unit 605 at The Inn at Crystal Beach! Our rate INCLUDES a $125 HOUSEKEEPING FEE, a seasonal BEACH SETUP MAR 1- OCT 31, as well as MANY other convenient items stocked in our pantry, refrigerator, and balcony closet! Our rates are almost always less than comparable units at The Inn (3 bedroom + Den center stack units) -most of the year it's several hundreds of dollars less per week. Our condo provides one of the best values you can find on The Emerald Coast- just look at our reviews!

We are continually updating our condo with items to provide the most comfortable stay possible for our guests. We recently had our entire unit painted in a light neutral grey tone, and had the carpet in all the bedrooms changed to a matching grey color. We just installed a brand new 75 inch 4K QLED Samsung Smart TV in the living room and a 65 inch 4K QLED Samsung Smart TV in our Master Bedroom, an X Box One S including a Gamepass subscription and new furniture in our living room, as well as brand new BluRay players with Streaming in EVERY room. Our new plush "Dream Bed" memory foam mattress in our Master Bedroom and brand new plush Hybrid Mattress (coils /memory foam) in our Guest King bedroom are sure to give you a great night's sleep no matter which bedroom you choose. Our new soft close cabinets and Quartz countertops in our bathrooms as well as our stainless steel kitchen appliances are sure to impress guests who have an appreciation for the finer things in life. Our luxurious Sunbrella patio furniture is both chic and comfortable (a hard to find combination), with white cushions on black wicker foundations, and they are stunning with the beautiful aqua blue water and white sand beach in the background. There are multiple chairs and ottomans and they can be arranged as either a large daybed or as a conversation set, and it is perfect for lounging around with your favorite cocktail while watching the dolphins swim by. In June 2015 an Air Conditioner with a Guardian Air Purification / Oxidation System was installed, enabling our condo to be a sanctuary of pure air. This system generates sanitizing hyper-peroxides which reduce levels of viruses, bacteria, mold, and odors- particularly beneficial for people prone to allergies. We love the fresh smell each time we enter our condo, and we hope you will too!

Condo Unit 605 at The Inn at Crystal Beach is a 3 bdrm/2 bth, 1640 sq ft luxurious, upscale gulf front condo located on the 6th floor in the exclusive "center stack" at The Inn at Crystal Beach, one of the most desirable locations in Destin. Our condo has a large L Shaped balcony providing some of the best views that can be had in Destin. It can accommodate 8 comfortably and sleeps like a 4 bedroom unit- we have a King bed in the master bedroom, a King in the 2nd bedroom, a set of Twin beds in the 3rd bedroom, and a daybed/ trundle as another set of Twin beds in the den.

The Inn at Crystal Beach is a gulf front condominium complex on Scenic Highway 98 in Destin- it is one of the closest beachfront condo complexes to the Midbay Bridge. The "center stack" units are situated further south and provide not only more space, but they also have larger L-shaped balconies with panoramic views. Our condo is just to the left of the middle of the complex- close to the elevators and just a few steps away from the sugar-white sand beach. Since our unit situates further south, we are able to provide one of the most panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico that can be found in all of Destin. As the owner of this condo, my husband and I take great pride in our vacation home- I personally speak with all inquiries prior to each stay to ensure that our condo is a good fit for your family. My name is Diane Speedling, and I would love to answer any questions you may have. As a Premier Partner, guests and owners have access to each other's phone numbers prior to booking- I look forward to speaking with you anytime. We have enjoyed our condo so much throughout the years, and we hope you love it as much as we do! It is meticulously maintained and upgraded throughout every year to ensure our guests have the most comfortable stay possible. If you are a discerning traveler accustomed to staying at places like The Four Seasons and The Ritz-Carlton, then you will feel at home in our condo.

Unit 605 is furnished with high-end appliances and comfortable contemporary and modern furniture and pillow top beds. Light and brightly decorated, it is adorned with neutral colors and evokes the feel of the islands through beach accents, yet one also has a feeling reminiscent of a high end Art-Deco hotel in Miami. It is appointed with features that rival any luxury penthouse-- high thread count linens, designer coverlets, thick designer towels, customized closets, and 2 king beds (vs queens) are just a few things that separate it from the rest. Large screen Samsung Smart TVs and Cox Whole Home DVRs are found throughout our condo- a 75 inch QLED 4K in the Living room, 65 inch QLED 4K in the Master bedroom, a 46 inch 3D HDTV in the Guest King bedroom, a 40 inch 3D HDTV in Twin bedroom, and a 32 in in the den. Our Smart TV Apps are preloaded with Amazon, HBO, Starz, and many more apps to keep you entertained in the evening. Our BluRay players (along with 60+ Blu Ray discs), X Box One S gaming system with Gamepass subscription, Cox Contour 2 Whole Home HD DVR System (preloaded with movies as well as space to record your own shows), and the DVD players with a library of 40+ DVDs are sure to keep the entire family entertained during the rainy non-beachy days. The unit has upgraded high speed wireless internet (100 mbps), expanded cable with Encore and Epix movie channels, BluRay players with Streaming in all rooms, cordless phones, and I-Home/ I-pod docking stations, extra charging stations and extra outlets in every room, all designed to make you feel welcome after a long day at the beach.

The living area has a sliding glass door that leads out to the large L-shaped balcony and the master bedroom does as well. The whitesleather sofa and 2 chairs provide a great area to gather around after a wonderful day at the beach- a perfect place to enjoy a movie on the 75 inch QLED 4K TV. The balcony has a brand new set of patio furniture- just right for watching the beautiful water at sunset with your favorite beverage. In the closet on the balcony we keep a revolving inventory of rafts, boogie boards, chairs, and other beach toys as a convenience for our guests, and many of our repeat guests house beach items there so they are waiting for them when they return. A beach set-up with 2 chairs and an umbrella is included with the rental (operates seasonally, Mar 1- Oct 31), however we often will have extra chairs in the closet that you are welcome to use.

The full sized kitchen with new stainless steel appliances has everything you need for a short or long term stay. It is well stocked with utensils, appliances, and cookware, as well as a washer and dryer. We have a traditional coffee pot as well as a Keurig K55 Coffee Maker. We keep the pantry and refrigerator well stocked with essential items as a convenience for our guests. Our new dining room furniture seats 8 comfortably at the table, and has 4 more bar-stools at the counter.

The master bedroom has a new plush Dream Bed with a 65 inch QLED 4K Samsung Smart TV, extended cable and movie channels as well as a BluRay player. You will have wonderful views to the east through the sliding glass door that leads to the balcony, and views of the gulf to the south through the windows. There is a customized walk-in closet with plenty of shelves and extra blankets/ pillows. The bathroom has ample light, mirrors, and counter space, with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, eye-makeup remover, etc left for our guests as a convenience, and a separate jetted Roman tub and shower. The second bedroom has a new plush Hybrid bed with a 46 inch 3D HDTV, cable with movie channels, a BluRay player and plenty of shelves and pillows/ blankets in the customized closet. The 3rd bedroom has a set of Twin beds with designer coverlets and a customized closet as well as a 40 in 3D HDTV with a BluRay player. The den is like a private alcove - the daybed and trundle are the perfect place to unwind watching a movie at night after a full day of fun in the sun.

Since 2006, we have been fortunate to have acquired a loyal following of fantastic repeat guests, and this has resulted in our having the highest occupancy rate at The Inn- we hope that one day you can be a repeat guest too! I personally inspect the unit on turnover days to ensure that our previous guests have taken great care of our place, and to make sure that housekeeping has done a perfect job for our future guests, as well as change the paper products left by them to a higher grade, etc. We value our guests and want to exceed their expectations!

House Rules:

Our minimum age is 25 (no "college spring breakers allowed"), no pets allowed (HOA policy), and No Smoking allowed ($500 fine). Check in time is 4pm, check out time is 10am. Duly note that The Inn at Crystal Beach charges a one time booking fee of $50 and a $15/nt amenities fee plus 11.5% tax (this is $172.83 with tax for a one week stay). The front desk is managed by Salt Water Vacations (formerly Dale E Peterson Realty), and they man the front desk 24/7 (thus, the fees). After booking, you will need to send me a check made out to Salt Water Vacations for their fees, and I will pass that along to the front desk, and then they will place you in their reservation system as a guest in Unit 605. They will provide the key cards, garage door opener, and wristbands upon check in. If you have any questions or concerns about the booking process, fees, or any other questions, please feel free to call me anytime and I'll be glad to walk you through it. Thanks so much for booking with us!
