A nightly view of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Where to start … My wife and I planned a Re-Wedding with our immediate family and friends and desired a picturesque location on the beautiful emerald coast of Florida to include a backdrop of sunsets over the Gulf. We came across a rare gem in the property conveniently located at 8223 Surf Drive with an ability to put everyone comfortably under one roof. I stepped out on faith by writing a check for the payment several months in advance without an ability to view the house first hand. As with any rental unit that is booked up week after week throughout the tourist season, it is challenging to maintain everything in perfect working order (especially a house over 5500sf). With that said, we arrived and some items had to be addressed in the house. I called and spoke to Bob on the Sunday after our arrival. I was encouraged that he not only answered my call on a Sunday; but that he also promptly mobilized his team to address the items needing attention. Once his team addressed all of the items requiring attention on Monday, we had no other issues whatsoever during our entire stay. My wife and I lived in this wonderful home for two weeks and could not have been more satisfied. Bob even called the day before our Re-Wedding to see if there was anything else that we needed to make the event more enjoyable. With a little TLC, including some paint and a few odds and ends here and there; those that have the pleasure of staying here would never wish to leave. The breath-taking views from the patio and the second floor balcony left us longing for the endless immensity of the Gulf in our daily thoughts and nightly dreams. If you ever want to stay in a place desiring never to leave, this is the rental home for you. Sure, if you like to get into the weeds and pick nits, you can always find things to complain about; however, the treasures in life are best shared focusing on the beauty of those around you. Bob, thank you for making this a wonderful and memorable stay for my wife, family and friends. You are to be commended and I would definitely stay here again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Coast Destination was Fantastic!!! We booked this house thirteen months in advance. Everything was clean, air-conditioning worked great, and the freezer in the kitchen helped store additional food and ice needed for our very large extended family. This rental met all expectations and was a great place to bring our children and grandchild for fun in the sun!

Any issue that arose during our stay was quickly addressed. For me not having a strong WiFi was not important since I wanted to be unconnected with work. However, the your adults found it was a negative for them. Thank you again for sharing your house.

House was great!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house several months before our stay. Everything was great until about 2 weeks prior we suddenly found a very disturbing review of the property had been posted. Understandably we were concerned so I contacted Emerald Coast Destinations seeking a response. Bob at ECD reassured us that the bad review was not a accurate depiction of the property. We took Bob for his word and followed through with our week long stay. All I can tell you is that we had zero problems and certainly no issues such that were expressed in the review. The air conditioning worked great. We didn't have any bug problems. Everything was clean and everything worked/functioned like it was supposed to work/function. Sure, there were a few cosmetic deficiencies but it's a 20+ year old beach house already past the halfway point of the season. The property was as described on website. The property was exactly as described by Bob when we expressed concern. It fully met our expectations when we booked it several months before. In fact, the furniture and tvs were actually nicer than we expected. It also has a chest deep freezer next to the kitchen which is awesome for storiing ice for all our coolers. The only negative I can really bring up is that the wifi wasn't very strong...such that it deterred me from doing too much work on my cpu....oh darn! This place met all our expectations and we had no issues. And we appreciated Bob from ECD calling afterwards to make sure we had a good time.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sir it has been a pleasure working with you for your family vacation! You mentioned that several of the different families children are going off to college and this may have been the last time you were able to have all of your different families and their children together in one location. We are glad you were able to do that one last time! However, maybe you might consider getting everyone together and do a family Spring Break vacation next year? I am very pleased you were highly satisfied. I know you were concerned when you read the prior review and after I explained that it was not justified you were still a little apprehensive. It was so nice of you and much appreciated to receive the email you sent upon arrival that you had checked in and everything looked just fine and was just as we had discussed on the phone and through emails. BTW I just spoke to the people who rented the house the week prior to your week and they said the same thing. In fact to quote them exact;y they said their stay was "Perfect! Yes we had an amazing time Thank you so much" They said they planned to write a nice review but are so busy being back to work with meetings and such that they just have not had the time to write one. We certainly look forward to having you back in the future as our guests it was my pleasure!

Renter beware looks can be deceiving...

  • 1 of 5


-Great for large groups

-Gulf Front


-Broken chairs, pool covers, cigarette butts and other random garbage lines the walk way from the owners suite to the beach.

-Ceiling of the shower on the owners suite side is about to fall thru on someone's head.

-Glass top of the stove in owners side is cracked.

-A/C unit was not working, until they finally came to fix it.

-"Pool" is actually just an oversized hot tub.

-Owners suite was full of bugs that according to the "booking agent" was not a big deal. We had a baby with us so yes I guess it was a BIG DEAL!

-Cabinet doors where falling off.

-Looked like the place had not been cleaned since these VRBO pictures were last updated.

-Walls and doors had holes where it looked like people had punched the wall.

-Broken glass is all over the parking area.

-Sliding glass door on owners suite was cracked.

-couches were full of stains

After notifing the "booking agent" multiple times and telling him we cannot use the owners suite side due to the bug infestation and no A/C because the fact we have a BABY with us. He offered us some money back but stated we would have to sign a contract that we would not write any reviews. Upon our decline of signing a contract without a lawyers review he threatened to kick us out, real professional. You can keep your money Bob, we care more about the way you are treating people.

Great Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Coast Destinations was GREAT! They stayed in contact with us during our pre-check in. The house was perfect! We had a family reunion in PCB for the week and it worker perfect for our family of 18. The house was extremely clean, comfortable and right on the beach. If felt like home away from home. The next time we are in PCB, we will definitely try to secure this wonderful home again for our stay. Thank you again Emerald Coast Destinations for helping make our vacation a blast!

Amazing Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in September and couldn't have been happier! I had read some reviews on other sites about this property and was apprehensive to say the least. After our week here, all of the apprehensions were put to rest! We arrived on Saturday afternoon and were very impressed by the cleanliness of the home. Everything was immaculate . The pictures on VRBO do not do the property justice! We had 9 adults and 6 kiddos 2 years and under, and everyone had their own space. The kiddos had a great time running around the house-it is HUGE!!! The spa upstairs was a great get-a-way for the adults, and the kids had fun in the pool downstairs. The beach is literally in your backyard, and unless there are renters in the properties around you, you don't have to share the beach with anyone else. There are two washers and dryers-very convenient, and the house provided more than enough bath towels. We are a family who loves to cook, and I wasn't sure how well the kitchen would be stocked with pots, pans, etc... There is plenty of cooking supplies-even a crock pot! The owners unit was very convenient, as it's acted as our "overflow" space. It has a full kitchen-refrigerator, oven microwave, etc... if you are running out of room in the main house kitchen. It has it's own private entrance (I think our parents liked being able to seclude themselves completely from the grandkids from time to time :) ) When we weren't cooking, we ate at Schooners (it was their annual lobster-fest) Sharkey's, and Mellow Mushroom pizza. We really liked the atmosphere at Schooners and Sharkey's. Mellow Mushroom has GREAT pizza! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants more of an upscale vacation. This is definitely not a house that has been "used and abused" by rowdy vacationers. My only request is that you do not try to book it during the second week of September because that is when our party UNANIMOUSLY agreed to have our 2nd annual family vacation here! We LOVED our time spent here, and hope you do too!
