Dan and Nora,

Thank you for the use of your beautiful home for our family vacation. This was our first opportunity to vacation as a family of six since Amelia joined us last July. The beaches are amazing, the facilities are fantastic and your home was beyond anything we could have asked for. We hope to return to Destin and when we do it will be to your home in Emerald Shores! Blessings to you and your beautiful family.

The best vacation we have ever had

  • 5 of 5

The house seemed brand new. Everything was perfect. The walk to the beach and pavillion were just right. I've never dealt with nicer people than the owner of this house. I'd like to send them a present for the wonderful time my family had in their house. If u want to have the best vacation of your life rent this house!

One of the best vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time here at Emerald Shores. The property had plenty of room for all four of our boys, and still had privacy for the adults. The beach access was great and the tram was very useful. Being that it's gated communicated, there was not a lot of traffic which kept the neighborhood peaceful. The swimming pool is literally a stone's throw away which the kids loved. But one of the best parts was Dan, the owner. He took his personal time to check on us, make sure we were taken care of, and gave us awesome restaurant recommendations. We would definitely return.

La Villa Di Capo helped make our first Destin vacation a great success!

  • 5 of 5

Great property that measured up as advertised and a fantastic owner to work with. Local property management firm promptly answered a couple minor requests. Property was clean, well maintained and quite roomy. Beds were comfortable, good TVs in every bedroom and well stocked kitchen supplies. The Roku streamed internet TV in the living room made for a relaxing evening family break. Very close to pool was a plus. Though close proximity to beach access, hourly shuttle to /from beach were appreciated at times. Charcoal grills only, which was OK and gave me a chance to brush up grill cooking on coals. We had the full age group; infant grandson, young adults and my wife and I and we were all very happy with our first vacation in the Destin area. We plan to return to La Villa Di Capo!

What a great location

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I are from Germany. This was our third trip to Destin, Florida. We plan to return. When we do it we're gonna book a year in advance in order to get this fantastic home again.

The house is a stone throw from the private beach and across from the heated pool. All the rooms are very large and beautiful decorated. The kitchen is newly remodeled with new appliance and is spotless. Everything like bathrooms and shower was very very clean. We were at home in such a fantastic property and it was our best decision to rent this house.
