This unit needs some serious maintenance and upgrading. King size bed mattress old and needs replacing. Sofa is shot. Furniture should be replaced. Closet sliding doors are rusted. Kitchen utensils minimal and very old. Wonderful view from balcony, great beach to swim and walk. Not a good value at this time due to unit's condition.

We stayed in 110B by Ocean Reef and absolutely loved it! The location is fantastic, literally steps away from the beach, and the view from the ground floor was perfect. The room was very clean and we had basic room essentials (kitchen and bathroom supplies - paper towels, tp, soap, etc.) and tons of fresh towels. Decor was bright and...

Stayed here for three nights while on vacation and enjoyed every second of it. Found the rental on HomeAway and so happy we did. Our room was right by the elevator on the 2nd floor but there were no noise issues whatsoever. What an easy walk down to the beach and the view from the patio was outstanding! We will...

We stayed in unit 210A At Crsytal Sands. Great location on the beach and easy drive to Eglin AFB. There were some up grades that were nice and the decor was nice. However the sofa really needs to be replaced. Had to cover it with sheet and sank in when you sat on it. Housekeeping needs to do a heavy...

Stayed here for just three nights in February when the weather was perfect! As noted, the location is perfect with easy access to all the shopping you could ever wish for, but more importantly, a beautiful section of the beach. There are few beaches like this unless you go to someplace like the Turks and Caicos Islands. One can walk...

We stayed in unit 208A at the Crystal Sands West. It was exactly as pictured and described. It was a very well appointed condo w/ lovely decor. The unit was directly over the walkway to the beach and showers so when sitting on the balcony there was not a lot of privacy. It did come w/ daily beach service w/...

Was looking for a 2 bedroom + condo on the beach. This one turned out great as there were 4 adults and 2 teens. This condo had a master bedroom on the main floor with a bedroom on the loft which had 2 twin bunks off the room for the teens. The only negative with a loft is lack of...

Nicely decorated. Beautiful view. Right on the beach. Smelled like mildew. Black mold in the bathroom. Couch had brown stain, had to put a blanket down to sit on it. The whole unit was not cleaned well at all. Carpet in the bedroom needs to be replaced.

Some of the units in this establishment were spot-on beautiful! Since we booked ours through Sea Oats Management and not the condo office, unit 112B is probably not privately owned but owned by the Sea Oats Motel. CONS - First of all, the levalor blinds on the windows - kitchen, living room and BEDROOM had slats missing. The light from...
