Description from owner

Perfect place for a peaceful vacation for 2. Stay directly on the beach in this very private town home. Great for a romantic vacation or peaceful getaway and a perfect place to celebrate a honeymoon or anniversary. Plus FREE daily beach set up service March until November. One king bedroom town home with plenty of space . You cannot get closer to the shore than this. This Destin town home has its own LARGE PRIVATE attached deck and is directly on 300 feet of PRIVATE BEACH on beautiful Crystal Beach, Destin's premier beach.

This town home has recently been renovated and updated. It offers a fully furnished kitchen, spacious king bedroom, Cable and WiFi Internet, 2 Flat screen TV's and DVD players and private parking right in front of the unit for easy offloading of luggage. There is a grill just a few yards from the front door. A laundry facility is located in the building.

Located at the west end corner of a small single story gated community, the complex is not crowded and free from the many hassles of many beachfront properties.

Couples appreciate the privacy of being in a corner beachfront unit with unobstructed views and no foot traffic passing by.

There is the added security of a gated community.

You can walk and bike the neighborhood plus restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. Bike and jet ski rentals are just a block away.

Guests enjoy the big private deck that no other guests in the complex can access. The only access to the deck is from the living room of the town home. There is NOTHING obstructing the view of the Gulf from this unit. Dolphins enjoy frolicking in the Destin area since it is a feeding ground for these gentle and playful creatures which adds to the enjoyment of our guests.

The town home is conveniently located just four blocks from Destin's premier shopping and entertainment area, Destin Commons and many restaurants. Its central location to attractions makes for convenience and saves time and gas.

Seven golf courses are conveniently located just 5 to 15 minutes away. And the largest designer factory outlet in the USA is located just 10 minutes drive east.

The Destin Harbor hosts the country's largest charter fishing fleet and is only 10 minutes drive west. Plan a fishing trip or enjoy watching the catches of the day from the dock.

For a direct beachfront vacation like it used to be, peaceful and hassle free, you will enjoy your stay in "By the Beautiful Sea" and you will love the private beach!

The Capri is an updated version of old Florida at its finest where you drive right up to your front door. The Capri was first a motel prior to being converted to single story town homes three of which are now beach fronts..

Pets are not allowed on the Destin beaches nor the beachfront rentals.

Beds: 1 King Bed

“Perfect for us”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2017

This immaculate townhouse was perfect for our mini vacation. The view was amazing and loved the private deck! The owner was very accommodating and communication with her was excellent!

Owner's reply: Thank you Alison; I am glad you enjoyed your trip. My guests love that big, private deck right on the beach.

“Just as described to us!”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2016

This was our first stay in this particular condo - the owner, Barbara, was extremely helpful, personable and even sent us a map of local restaurants and hot spots - we had everything we needed and the property was exactly as described by Barbara - we thought the view was phenomenal and the price was right for sure!! Everyone was so nice and helpful and the condo was located conveniently near shopping, great food and lots of entertainment - best of all the beach was pristine! I'm gonna start playing the lottery so maybe I can buy my own condo in Destin when I win!

Could not be more pleased with this vacation rental. It's on the beach, the deck is amazing, close (less than 1 mile) to grocery store, restaurants and shopping. Great golf also nearby. The beach setup was a nice feature. The unit was equipped with everything we needed. Owner communication was outstanding from start to finish. Highly recommend.

“Snowbirds getaway!”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2016

This was our first Florida vacation since we retired! We stayed the whole month of February and it was wonderful. We where a little anxious on arrival not knowing what to expect but we where not disappointed. Linda meet us on arrival and showed us what we needed to know and offered great suggestions of places to est and things to see. And the Condo was as cute as could be! It is decorated very nice and beachy and it was very clean. The deck was amazing the weather was a bit on the chilly side but you could still enjoy coffee on the deck in the morning and cocktails in the evening. And the sunsets where beautiful. We met good friends and made special memories on our maiden retirement voyage at the Capri.

“Right on the beach!”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2014

great townhouse with all amenities. Very quiet as we did not have direct neighbors. Loved it! May not have been as private if the townhouse beside us had been occupied.


Reviewed 22 Jul 2014

Everything was just perfect. We had everything we needed and then some. The bed was more comfortable than my own. The view was fantastic and the distance from the door to the beach was short and sweet!! It was our first getaway after 4 years together and it is exactly what we needed. The decorations and furniture were great as well...it gives you the beach effect but does not go overboard with it.. I need to find out where they bought the mattress!!! :)

“Wonderful Week Away”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2014

We really enjoyed our week away in Destin at this property. It was clean and right on the beach. We loved that our condo came with an umbrella and chairs right on the beach. It was quiet, and it was within walking distance of some restaurants and coffee. Great location for a morning run. My boyfriend and I wanted a week away without a schedule, and that is exactly what we got. The staff was super friendly, and we definitely want to come back next year. We are even thinking about getting married in Destin.

“Amazing jewel”

We stayed 7 days at the Capri! What a wonderful, well kept condo that delivers everything mentioned in the ad. The deck,beach and privacy was amazing. Seeing dolphins was great. We will be back!

“great vacation”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2014

We had a great vacation at the Capri, quiet but close to everything we could possibly want. Restaurants and bars were very good with unbelievable attention. The Capri was very clean and even nicer than we imagined it could be. Parking at the door and having our own deck over the sand was great and for both sunsets and sun rises. We saw Dolphins daily. Linda was over the top with service and friendliness. Can't wait to book again for maybe longer next time.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Ken and I look forward to welcoming you back.
