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'.

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.

Early Fall Getaway

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Fabulous condo! This is probably my 10+ stay at Emerald Isle and the in home amenities are great. Plenty of cooking utensils, bowls, and the like. Plenty of room and the "wall of windows" was gorgeous to look out from the 16th floor. I've already booked this condo again for another trip and the owners were great to work with. Everything was seamless. You can't go wrong renting this unit!

Beautiful condo with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The view was breathtaking and the accommodations were perfect. Loved having 2 queen beds in one of the bedrooms. The 2 swivel chairs in the living room was the best seats for enjoying the view. Will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Pensacola beach. The condo was beautiful and very comfortable. My kids asked me to book it for next year. The views are amazing and we sat on the comfy chairs in the living room drinking our coffee and watching the dolphins. The wrap around view was my favorite part because you could see for miles. The emerald green water was so clear you could watch schools of fish dart around in the water from the balcony. We saw so much wildlife- birds, crabs, dolphins, fish etc. It was a great place and we would love to come back. It was close to everything and we visited all of our favorite restaurants like Peg Leg Pete's! The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you needed to cook a meal.
