Dreaming of the Sea, Salt and Sand

Last year, Summer of 2015, we vacationed in Miramar Beach, FL.  Miramar is just a few miles from Destin. It is located in South Walton.  My family loves this area.  The beaches are private and they are not near as crowded.  Also in this area the condos are mostly low rises consisting only of 4-5 floors, therefore not as many people as a 15-20 floor condo.  We stayed at the Crescent Condo.  Our friends went with us who is also a family of four.  They have a daughter the same age as Maddie and a son who is a couple years older than Carter.  So they played great together. 

Our condo was a 3 bedroom 3 bath!! It was wonderful!! The third bedroom was twin beds which was perfect for the boys.  And every bedroom had their own bathroom, which made getting ready at night to go to eat very easy.  And the living room had a pull out couch which was perfect for the girls!!  It was a fully equipped with all kitchen utensils.  We ate breakfast and lunch in the condo everyday, but went out at night.  It was had a full size washer and drier.

The Condo had a very nice pool.  It was very large in size so you didn't feel like you were on top of each other.  There was several lounge chairs around the pool.  The condo also included free beach service!! This was a major amenity for me, I'm a beach bum!!  The Crescent is also a gated condo.  Meaning that  you had to have a code to enter the parking lot and then a code to enter the pool area from the beach.  This made me feel very safe.  Carter and his friend would go back and forth from pool to beach and knowing that only residents of this condo was allowed in was very comforting.

This year we are not travelling to the beach..:( However I am very sad about this, but it will just make the next trip that much more enjoyable with the anticipation!!

The Crescent is located right across from the Silver Sand Outlet Mall.  Any store you can think of is located in the mall.  Also for added convenience is a Wynn Dixie, right beside the condo as well.  This made grocery shopping very easy.

This post is my own opinions and I was not compensated for the review, I just love this area that much!
