About the property

Condominium, 3 Bedrooms 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This newly updated beautiful property sits literally on the Gulf of Mexico. One guest recently told me he actually saw the eyes of a dolphin jumping in the water right in front of him while on the balcony of the condominium.

The quaint area really is a selling point to stay here. There are no high rises in the area and wonderful restaurants in walking distance. Bikes can be rented across the street. The condominium is owned by an interior decorator who recently painted the entire condominium and updated the linens and decor. It is just delightful.

For those who want privacy, the third bedroom is upstairs and has a TV and two sets of bunk beds for children, if so desired. This unit is a wonderful place to vacation.

Everything went smoothly. Brenda is very easy to work with. The condo is great! And the kitchen is better stocked than most. Should we need a condo this size again, we will definitely call on Brenda again.

Great place and was really impressed with how our beach area was maintained.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice and my family had a great time. Though we went the busiest week of the year our beach area was well maintained and felt very private. I really loved that aspect of the development.

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just amazing! Spacious, nicely decorated, right on the ocean and fully stocked.

Tons of room for my family of five with ample sleeping space. Brenda and her husband have done a fabulous job with their second home. I would recommend her condo tenfold!

As advertised

  • 4 of 5

We had an execellant experience with this rental. Payment was simple, pictures and descriptions were accurate. Fifth floor view was awesome. Kitchen was sufficient for us because we did not cook in. If u are planning to to extensive cooking, then it could probably need a little upgrade on a few things but no complaints from us. 4 out of 5 only because my 5 standards are high.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo location is both beautiful and convenient. You will love sitting on the balcony drinking coffee at sunrise watching the dolphins swim in the ocean. In the evening, the sunsets are spectacular. The Emerald Dunes is a beautiful small gated condominium complex located in a quite residential area near Henderson State Park. The 6 story building with 27 units boasts an excellent management and meticulous maintenance. Many of the top rated restaurants in Destin are within walking distance. The convenient location to premier shopping, grocery , movie theater, bowling, and the new Salamander Spa will save you precious time to enjoy your vacation.
