About our home

We offer a luxurious Gulf-front 1640 sq.ft. condominium in the heart of Destin, Florida. It has everything one could desire as a getaway, as we lived in it as our primary home for more than 2 years and visit it as often as we can. It is now our second home, and therefore it is available for non-simultaneous exchanges, however IT IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR EXCHANGE FROM SEPTEMBER- FEBRUARY EACH YEAR. It is occupied solidly from March - August with short term rentals (our peak times here are Spring and especially Summer, as Destin is a family destination and our busiest times are when schools are on break). The best months to visit Destin are from Sept - November when the weather is the nicest and it is not as crowded. Dec - Feb it's most likely too cold for most people to enjoy swimming in the gulf, but other activities such as fishing and golfing are still enjoyable.

There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, as well as an owner's closet with a daybed and trundle. We have high-speed wireless internet throughout the unit. All bedrooms and the den have large screen 4K QLED TVs (75 inch in living room, 65 inch in all bedrooms) and BluRay players, as well as I-Pod docking stations and plenty of chargers (wired and wireless). There is a memory foam king-sized Dream bed in the master bedroom which has its own bathroom including a mirrored walk-in closet, jetted Roman tub, and a separate shower. The other bedrooms have a hybrid memory foam/coil king bed and a set of memory foam twin beds, and there is a daybed with trundle with 2 twin beds in our owner's closet which is like a small 4th bedroom. The guest bathroom has a shower/tub combo. We have comfortable furniture in the den which includes a sofa and 4 chairs. Our L-shaped balcony has patio furniture that can be arranged as a large daybed or conversation set. It affords one of the most panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico that can be found in Destin. Our kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is equipped with everything one needs for short-term or long-term stays. It has a new washer and dryer and other new appliances, and there is plenty of seating for a large family in the dining room. We hope you have the opportunity to enjoy our piece of "paradise" as much as we have.


More about us

  1. My name is Diane, and I am 46years old. My husband is Sandon, and he is 48 years old. Our primary home is in Sandestin, Florida, which is less than 10 miles from our 2nd home (condo) in Destin which is available for exchange. As locals we could provide recommendations for activities and restaurants. We are both professionals and work in healthcare. I am a physician, and he is in hospital administration. We have no children but have a toy poodle whom usually does not travel with us, and we board him while we are gone. We are fairly well traveled when it comes to beach locations, however, there are many other places we have yet to visit (although our preference is for the warmer locations, and we really have little interest in mountainous locales). We look forward to exploring new places where we have never been and places where we are returning. We have had several successful home exchanges so far, and we are eager to have more! We prefer to stay in places that are similar in quality to ours (king beds, jetted bathtub, HDTVs, etc). Non-simultaneous exchanges are possible as we are flexible about the exchange dates (our place is only available from Sept-Feb) and most destinations although we are NOT interested in Europe at this time. We are private and careful people who respect what others have.

Where is it?


Our condominium is located at the Inn at Crystal Beach in the Crystal Beach area of Destin, which is in the northwest "panhandle" of Florida, known for beaches with powder-white sand like sugar and emerald green waters. It is one of the most sought after locations in Destin and is known for its privacy and quaintness, yet it is close to the best that Destin has to offer. It was chosen as the location for the Weather Channel's morning show in 2012 after they had visited several beaches in Destin and found it to be the best! It is the closest beachfront complex to the Midbay bridge, the easiest access point to Destin. It is only a few blocks away from Destin Commons, an outdoor shopping and entertainment complex consistently voted as "the Best of the Emerald Coast." The Inn at Crystal Beach has just 55 units but has many amenities that a much larger complex can offer. It has a 24 hour front desk, an award winning casual restaurant downstairs called 790 on the Gulf (very good!), a well equipped fitness center with great views of the Gulf, a gulf-front swimming pool and jacuzzi hot-tub, and underground parking. **There will be a one time booking fee of $50 and a $15/nt amenites fee charged by the Inn at Crystal Beach upon check-in, and they accept cash or check only** Sorry...I wish it weren't so, but it is mandated by the HOA for all guests that are not owners or immediate family members of owners :>(
