About Greg Stevens

We have always been beach lovers and had rented many vacation condos over the years. However, it had always been a dream of ours to own a condo on the beach. After many years of carefully saving our money, we were able to realize that dream when we purchased our home at Emerald Isle in 2003. A part of our dream had always been to share our home by providing a comfortable, affordable vacation rental for others. Drawing on our memories of the useful features of beach condos that we had rented over the years, we furnished our beach home so that it can be a place where guests enjoy visiting.

Greg Stevens purchased this condo in 2003

Why Greg Stevens chose Pensacola Beach

We chose Pensacola Beach because it has the most beautiful beaches and emerald green water. It is also a short drive from our home in Atlanta and we like to visit several times a year. Additionlly, we fell in love with Emerald Isle Resort because it is located directly on the beach and has incredibly beautiful views from the ocean front balconies. Also, Pensacola Beach has lots of wonderful restaurants and shopping but isn't over developed like other beaches near by.

What makes this condo unique

Some of the benefits of being at Emerald Isle includes the security of gated access, two pools (one heated), a hot tub, and work out facilities. We are a short walk from many restaurants and shopping or a short drive or bike ride from Fort Pickens and the National SeaShore. We also love to visit the Naval Air Museum and are often thrilled to see the Blue Angels doing a 'fly by'.

Emerald Isle unit #1601 was terrific, couldn't ask for a better view out the floor to ceiling window

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in #1601. The condo itself was top notched, the living room has floor to ceiling windows that allowed us to sit in the morning and watch the beach wake up. Also since this unit is on the 16th floor and an east corner unit we were able to watch the sun rise over the island. The kitchen was very well equipped beyond my expectations. The living room has two comfy couches and two swivel chairs located by the window overlooking the gulf. There is more than enough bath towels and bed pillows and blankets. The only issue we had with with condo was an unusual noise that was coming from the ceiling fan area in the master bedroom but the next day we found out that the condo at the other end had experienced the same noise that was due to very high winds, thanks to tropical storm Cindy. The condo owners were quick to respond and let us know that the maintenance people would be by and even gave us their names. The condo building did have a problem the week we were there with one of the elevators but was corrected mid week. There are board games furnished, along with a big flat screen tv in the living room and flat screens in each of the three bedrooms. One thing to note that the rental management company Southern Vacation rentals office is about 2 miles past the condo which makes checking in a little confusing, and you have to go to their office to get a separate key for the workout gym. I would highly recommend this condo for any family looking for a nice place to relax and enjoy the beach.

Owner's Response: Dana, thank you very much for writing such a lovely review of our condo. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at Emerald Isle and our condo. We definitely understand what you mean about the view from the floor to ceiling windows. We love to watch the sun rise while we are sitting in the comfy swivel chairs that you mentioned. I am glad to read that the building staff was prompt in responding to some of the unusual issues due to the heavy rains due to the tropical storm to the west. We have always found the building staff to be very guest oriented and your experience validates that. Thank you again for being a guest in our condo. We hope to see you back in the future.

Fantastic vacation at a perfect condo.

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to Thank You for a great vacation. The condo was perfect for us, it was so spacious and we never felt crammed in. The sleeping arrangements were exactly what we needed, the kitchen was stocked with everything I needed to cook elaborate breakfasts, simple lunches and wonderful dinners. The balcony was our favorite place in the morning where we enjoyed coffee and dolphin watching. The views were unbelievable both day and night and we felt completely at home. The proximity to the beach was so convenient and the keyless entry made it easy for all of us to come and go without wondering who had the key. We will definitely be back as this was by far our most favorite vacation.

We too love to sit on the balcony and watch the dolphins (typically, we see them in the morning). We are glad that you found the condo to be well stocked. The condo is our "home away from home" so we try to make sure that it has everything that we need for our visits as well as the visits of our guests like you.

Owner's Response: Tommy, thank you for taking time to write a review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The views are amazing from the 16th floor. We always enjoy being able to see both the ocean and the sound from all of the windows in the condo. Hopefully, you were up early enough to see some spectacular sunrises.

Our experience was great. The kitchen is very well equipped and the furnishings were very comfortable. We did call the management company for a minor issue, and they were very prompt in fixing the problem. We definitely would stay here again.

Family vacation was better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo had all the amenities we needed. We traveled from Seattle, (Pensacola is home) and couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. My aunt who lives in South Florida and Mom who lives in Pensacola stayed and had a wonderful time as well. The location is perfect; walking distance to everything. We had bikes which made traveling easy too. Thanks for offering your condo for others to rent. We made wonderful memories and hope to be able to stay in this same condo again.
