POOR VALUE FOR COST. NOT WELL MAINTAINED.

  • 1 of 5
I strongly encourage you to read this review before considering renting this home. I’m limited to 2500 characters, so this is the abridged version. I have several anecdotes which just don’t fit in the space allowed. 1st, the owners took over management responsibility from a management company within the last 6 months. The owners were extremely unresponsive and disorganized in pre-stay communications. 2nd, our first impressions and condition of the unit immediately set our family vacation off on a bad note. The yard, palm trees, bushes, etc were completely overgrown. We had to push limbs out of the way to get out of the car. There was mold on the front steps and some loose tile work. The AC was not working as the batteries had died on the thermostat. Several light bulbs were ou. The carpet in the bunk bed room (a converted garage) had ugly stains and water damage with poor ventilation. Outlets didn’t work. Walls had scuffed & damaged. Furniture was dated & damaged (not as pictured). The outside grill was rusty and the cooking surface had leftover food & gunk. There was balcony had mold & damaged chairs. The pool had overgrown weeds hanging into the water & the jets didn’t work. The outside had a mix of mud & mold on it. So, we fixed what we could, took pictures & contacted the owner. The owner responded almost immediately apologizing. The owner set up people to immediately come and improve things. Literally, every day for the next 4 days, people showed up to fix things. Frankly the daily interruption from the maintenance folks was not that big of deal. We simply expect more, especially at this price point. My wife spoke with the owner and asked for a refund for at least part of our stay. Verbally, the owner offered a “free week during the offseason”. When I followed up with emails around “when is offseason”, after 2 weeks, they responded, “We’ve tried to meet your needs & are shocked at your expectation levels. We’ve never received any negative feedback – we are busy with jobs & are unable to respond to you at this time”. I interpret this as nothing further will be done. The owners have this home for sale. It is clear they do not want to manage this or invest further. In conclusion, we did not feel the experience matched the cost of this rental home. At any price, many of our concerns around very basic things remain. This home is dated & needs a lot of work. The owners are not engaged. We hope this helps you with your rental decision.

GREAT VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Emerald Palace from 7/20-7/27/2013 with our daughter and her husband, our son and his wife and our 2 grand kids, a total of 6 adults and 2 children, 4 and 8. The grand kids loved the onsite pool which was just the right size for them. The only bad thing about having the pool is we had trouble getting the grand kids to go to the ocean. The property was lovely and had all the amenities you could ever want. The views were great and a short walk to the ocean. We really only touched the surface of all there is to do in Destin. There were a few maintenance items during our stay but all were taken care of immediately and with no interruption to us. Thanks for a great visit.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!

  • 5 of 5
Just spent the week at this fabulous vacation home. The house was amazing! It was truly steps from the beach. We simply loved waking up to the sounds of the ocean. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The kids enjoyed a dip in the pool at the house, but we also spent hours at the large and very well maintained community pool. We had the entire thing to ourselves most of the time.

The location of the house is wonderful, we were minutes away from everything. We enjoyed pier fishing, snorkeling, spent a day in the bay exploring Crab Island, fishing and even had the opportunity to watch a pod of dolphins feet from our boat. The beach was beautiful. There are great restaurants very close to the house. The homeowners are great to work with. I highly recommend this home for your next vacation to the Destin area.

ABOVE AND BEYOND!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home and I wanted to write a review while the trip was still on my mind. We had the best week in this home and would have no reservations whatsoever about staying there again. There was a tropical storm in the area when we arrived, so it rained the whole first day we were there. The owners not only called to check in and make sure we were ok, they also came over and brought games and puzzles for our children. You will not find many owners as concerned about their guests as these two. They are great! My Husband and I vacationed with my Parents, our four Children (ages 6,7,13 and 16) and our oldest Daughter's 16 year old friend.There was more than enough room for everyone. The three younger kids loved the bunk room and pretty much stayed there or in the pool The two older girls enjoyed the third King room with their own full bathroom. The pool, from what I could see, is roughly the same size as other pools in the neighborhood, but there is also a great neighborhood pool. We had two adults and four kids in the pool at the house at the same time playing a game and there was plenty of room to have fun. There is also an alarm on the back door that you can set to go off if the door is opened. When you have small children, that is a huge bonus. The house is so close to the beach. We compared it to staying in a condo (waiting for an elevator, riding the elevator down, walking all the way down a boardwalk and finally arriving at the beach) and the house, by far, is so much closer and more convenient. You are literally on the sand at the private beach in five minutes. You just can't get that in a high rise building. We loved the kitchen and spent lots of time there cooking. The family room was very large and accomodated our whole crew during our "down time". All of the furnishings were lovely and the granite countertops throughout were certainly a bonus. There was nothing we needed that this house didn't have. I highly recommend this property and would give more stars if I could!

AWESOME WEEK

  • 5 of 5
The house and location were great. The house is as advertised with perfect views of the gulf. The bedroom upstairs was very nice with a bathroom area you could only compare to something you would see in a celebrities home. The livingroom area upstairs was huge and the kitchen was nice with all top of the line appliances. The bedrooms downstairs were nice but mostly used just for sleeping on our part. We had 6 adults and 4 kids and room to spare. We split our time between the beach and the community pool. The beach was just across the street with private gate access. The community pool was very big and exceptionaly maintained. The whole neighborhood was perfectly landscaped. The house is very close to several restaurants and shopping areas. Our favorite by far was the Crab Trap. We met the owners fo the home and they were both very nice wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay. If we ever return to Destin we will stay here again.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We are a faimly of five -- 3 adult children, my husband, and myself. ALL of us thoroughly enjoyed the week we spent in this home in May, 2011. First of all, the location is PERFECT. It is just across old highway 98 and an open beach area -- so the view of the ocean from the 2nd floor family is breathtaking. The house itself is truly lovely and spacious with many high end finishes -- tall ceillings and doors, lovely woodwork and moldings, travertine tile, good kitchen, a master bedroom suite that would please the most discriminating of tastes. From the many large windows and atrium doors of the family room the vew of the ocean was AMAZING. And that was from the inside -- just wait until you step out onto the balcony and the cool ocean breezes....

The home also has a nice, but very small, private pool -- but a perfect size for lounging by in the late evenings. We also had access to the large neighborhood pool which is about a 10 minute walk from the home -- but since the beach is so close we spent most of our time there when we were not at home,

As far as shopping and dining -- excellent choices are within walking distance, should you be so inclined. Captain Dave's is one of our favorite places and just a few minutes walk away. And there is something for just everyone when shopping at the huge Silverstrand Outlet Mall which is just a couple of miles away.

It was our sincere pleasure to meet the owners while we visited in there in Florida - a very charming young couple with 2 beautiful children. They were in process of updating the TVs and electronic equipment in the home, so it will be even better when we return next time!
