Emerald Shores Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Wow, what a great vacation home in the Destin area! Located in the tranquil, gated neighborhood of Emerald Shores, this three story, four bedroom, three bath home sits in a cul-de-sac at the community pool and only a five minute walk to the beach! There is also a free tram service to the beach during the summer months! Recent updates include a new 51' Plasma TV with some high def channels, DVD players, and a new stainless steel Kitchen with granite counters! New Stainless Steel appliances and new granite counters installed Spring 2012!! New TVs in the bedrooms have been added too!

Sit out on the wrap-around balconies or the first floor covered porch and enjoy the weather and the views of the neighborhood and pool! There is a distant water view from the third floor balcony!

This Caribbean cottage, named 'Caribe,' is decorated with a Caribbean theme and bright colors! It sleeps 12! The first floor has a spacious and open floor plan with tiled floors. The second floor is carpeted in the bedrooms and tiled in the bathrooms and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a bonus room leading to the second floor balcony. The third floor is a loft area with twin beds with access to yet another balcony! High Speed internet access on 1st floor.

Emerald Shores has its own Beach Cabana with restrooms, picnic tables, and lounge chairs. There are also two heated pools, tennis court, shuffle board, and a basket ball court! Conveniently located to the Destin Commons Mall, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Golf, Restaurants, and more!

The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!' Destin is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports.

Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes two to three times a year event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you'll want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why!

THIS HOUSE WAS DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE MONEY. IT WAS DIRTY, TV DID NOT WORK PLACE WAS A MESS!

  • 1 of 5
We rented this house in April. From the pictures it looked nice. We also liked the area where it was located, close to pool and not too far from the beach. These are the only positive things to say regarding our rental.
The house was very dirty as well as the furniture. We covered the furniture with sheets brought from home so we could sit on them. When we turned on the TV in the living room we couldn't even get a picture. It was like that for the entire week. Roaches were spotted and killed in the house.
The bathrooms had black mold. A kitchen cabinet actually came off when opened. We found a base of the blender but no container so it was not useable.
The clothes dryer took 4 hours to dry one load of bath towels. There were 6 towels in the load. We cleaned the lint trap each time but it didn't help.
The rental agent was not helpful. They did offer a very small refund but we would rather have had a clean house for the week. I would not use this rental company again.
Do not rent this house!!

Owner's Response: We are so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Caribe is a nice home and was clean and rental ready. We heard about a problem with a kitchen cabinet door not closing the day after the guests arrived. Nothing else was mentioned until 6 days into their 8 night stay! At that time, it was just the dryer that took a long time to dry and that the TV in the living room didn't have all the channels. No other problems were mentioned! We would have gladly come over to take care of any issues and even move them to a more suitable home if we had known the level of dissatisfaction. The cabinet door was an easy fix, just tightening a screw! The TV was working fine when we were given the opportunity to check on it. Someone had left the VCR/DVD player on which was an easy fix to turn off so that the channels would come through clearer! There was never any mold in the bathroom, never saw any bugs, nor was there a problem with the blender. It was intact! The dryer vent was cleaned out after the guests left and should operate normally going forward. Again, we could have taken care of that if we had known on day 1! However, In an effort to work with these guests, we gave them a generous refund. When we advised the guests of the resolution, we were threatened with, "Make me happy and I won't write a bad review!" We do our best to make everyone as happy as we can, especially when we fall short of expectations. It is unfortunate that we didn't get the opportunity to review and resolve their concerns during the first 6 days.
