Welcome to 'Emerald Blue Condo' we are on the 1st floor just about 75 steps away from the beach. Our condo is 1 of only 6 units out of the 93 condos in Gulfview Condominiums that has the conveinient parking access where you can back your vehicle up to the patio door and unload your luggage, grocieries and beach items.

Our GROUND FLOOR unit is located within Gulfview II Condominiums a small 3 story complex with two gorgeous pools - one heated seasonally, a hot tub, beautiful tropical grounds with two outdoor grilling areas.

We have a 1 bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed, there are built-in hallway bunk beds for the kids, and a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room, the condo will accommodate up to 6, no more than 4 adults at one time. We have also placed a new leather recliner in the living room along with the new sofa sleeper.

There is a kidney shaped pool right out your front door and we also have a large seasonally heated pool with a nice hot tub only steps away. There is an area just a few steps from the condo with furnished BBQ grills for those outdoor cooks. We have also provided beach chairs for your days at the beach, just be sure to bring your own beach towels. Gulfview Condominiums have several on site washers and dryers for your convenience. (The cost for washing or drying is $1.50 and we suggest that you bring your own quarters as there are no change machines)

The Beach View : Peek-a-boo view from your patio only, no actual view from within the condo. However the beach is only a few steps away from the condo thru the private gate.

We are originally from Illinois and moved to LA (lower Alabama) in 2005, but our love for the Gulf of Mexico brought us to the Destin area and you just can't help but to fall in love with the beaches here and Destin is just so beautiful. Our home is just a little over 2 hours from our condo and that makes it the perfect get away for us.

Joyce Hembrough purchased this condo in 2012

We looked at many different properties but when we arrived at Gulfview it just felt like we were home. Everyone is friendly, the landscaping with its very tropical feel and the condo itself said to us 'this is the one'

You are so close to the beach - less than 75 steps and really if you don't want to leave the area you are within walking distance to some really nice restaurants Pompano Joe's, The Crab Trap and Kenny D's . If you like to grill out you have the grill area a few steps away from your front door. Gulfview offers plenty of free parking and if you bring your bicycles there is a bike rack just down from your front door - just bring your bike locks for them. There is also the walking, biking, running trail right in front of the building which is about 5 miles long for you to enjoy.

BEAUTIFUL BEACH

  • 4 of 5
The Condo was very clean and spacious. Joyce was very good to work with and even had t help the night we arrived to get us pointed in the right direction. The photos did reflect on what the condo looked like, and it was very nice having a pool literally outside your front door. We enjoyed eating at Kenny D's and also Margaritaville. We also enjoyed the Salute to the local hero on Thursday night at HarborWalk. We would recommend our friends or family to stay here in the future.

Owner's Response: Gail, thank you for your review, we appreciate it so much. I'm so glad you enjoyed the area and also HarborWalk Village. When I get a chance, going to HarborWalk is one of my favorite things to do.
We discussed there not being enough cooking skillets and I am very sorry that happened. Sometimes things just disappear and we have no way of knowing until be go to the condo or like you, our guest tells us so. I'm very grateful you let me know, we will take a look at all the kitchen and or other items we need to replace the next time we get to go to the condo this month.
You were great to work with and I'm so glad you called me the evening you came in - I enjoy helping our guest, you deserve a stress free vacation and if I can help that's great for me.
Thanks again and we hope you will come back and enjoy our area in the future, Joyce and John Hembrough

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. John & Joyce are wonderful to work with and made us feel very special. They made sure our trip was easy and problem free. The condo was exactly as pictured and very comfortable and the closeness to pools and beach was awesome! Great places to eat close by and highly recommend The Donut Hole, Pompano Joe's, Hog's Breath Saloon and the dolphin cruise. We will definately be back! Thanks again John & Joyce for helping us celebrate a wonderful 35th anniversary! Joe & Sherri Proctor

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Loved the convenience of being across from the beach again! Very clean and comfortable, the owners are very friendly and great to work with. The pull out couch was even a very comfortable bed for our son. Pools were great and well maintained. Loved this place and would stay here again!

STAY AT GULFVIEW

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo for a month during the winter. It was so good to get away from all the snow and ice, and this condo was amazing. It was well-equipped to accomodate long stays and Joyce was so wonderful to work with. She helped me throughout the whole rental process and truly cared about our comfort during our stay. This condo has so many wonderful features: ground level, secure and well-kept, in close proximity to restaurants, church, grocery store, and pharmacy, and access to a wonderful walking/bike path (which I took advantage of every day); however, one of the best features is that it is so close to the beach. Unless it was cloudy, I just had to walk across the street to see some of the most amazing sunsets over water that I've ever seen. We will definitely be back. Thank you, Joyce and John!

Owner's Response: Becky & Marvin, It means so much to us that you loved our little place at the beach - we think it's awesome but we are also very partial to it. Knowing that you were able to get out of the weather back north and especially this year and enjoy some of Florida's sunshine is what it's all about. We love Miramar Beach/Destin, it is one of the most beautiful beaches along the Gulf. Thank you so much for the awesome review and we are so hoping the two of you can come back next year. Thank you again, John & Joyce
