About Allen or Robin

We are from the greater Atlanta Ga area and have vacationed in Destin with our three children, other family members, and many friends over the past 30 years. It has been fun to watch Destin grow from a sleepy little fishing village to the wonderful family fun oriented town it is today.

Allen or Robin purchased this house in 2005

Why Allen or Robin chose Emerald Waters Village

Destin is definitely the best family oriented beach town on the Gulf! With our 30 years of Destin heritage we believe this Frangista / Miramar Beach location is the best in Destin and why we chose this location. There are no high rise condos in the immediate area and the beach access controlled is by private access which means there are less people, great for families to keep track of each other. There is more beach room for beach activities! Here are the reasons we chose this house. A very short walk to the beach was a must! We wanted the strength of exterior concrete walls to protect against high hurricane force winds that also keeps the house cooler in the summer and warmer in the mild winter. We wanted a high enough elevation and distance from the Gulf to protect against high water and flooding. We wanted the benefits of a small upscale controlled access subdivision with little vehicle traffic for safety and security reasons. We wanted to be in easy walking distance of a great restaurant or two, a convenient store and shops. We wanted to be in a central location of the Destin area that enabled us to take advantage of all of the area activities. Emerald Waters was the subdivision of choice. This beach house has the structure we were looking for! We have completed most of the updates we envisioned to make Gulf Breeze one of the best family oriented beach houses in Destin. Bonuses include the great subdivision park directly across the street with its beautifully manicured lawn where we love to play all kinds of lawn games, one of the subdivision pools is located across the park where our children have been able to meet new friends their ages. We are pleased to share it with other families to enjoy!

No other area offers the verity of activities.

What makes this house unique

BOATING: Our family loves taking advantage of one of the best coastal boating areas in the world. With a medium size trailerable boat we can do just that. Legendary Marina, a full service marina with dry storage is about 10 minutes from the beach house (near the Bass Pro store).

CRAB ISLAND: There is an area known to locals and vacationers alike called Crab Island. This sandy underwater island is just a few inches to a few feet below the surface. Google Crab Island Destin for photos in information.

NO BOAT, NO WORRIES: There are many boat and jet ski rentals available in Destin. If you would like to spend a day at Crab Island and cruising the Destin Harbor and along the world's most beautiful Destin Pass beaches, take time to check out the boat rentals by Googling Destin Boat Rentals.

BRINGING YOU OWN BOAT: Note that no trailers are allowed in the subdivision so make arrangements with Legendary Marina well ahead of time. They will be able lift your boat off your trailer, store your trailer during your stay, store your boat inside the dry storage barn, fuel, ice, launch, and recover your boat after a day in the water. At the end of your day on the water they will place your boat on a wash rack, where you will be able to wash down and flush your engine with fresh water. At the end of your stay, they will lift your boat back on your trailer for your trip home.

LOCATION FOR BEACH GOERS, GOLFERS & BOATERS ALIKE: With our proximity to the best beach in Destin, the only full service marina in Destin, and in the middle of the best golf courses in Destin our location is a great destination!

The home is very nice. Clean, and spacious. Pictures are accurate.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Just a short walk to the beach, a coffee shop and Pompano Joe's. Though the pool is small, we really enjoyed it. We also really appreciated the pool and beach toys. We arranged for beach umbrellas and chairs with La Dolce Vita, I would recommend them. The patio area and deck were comfortable for hanging out after a day at the beach. Fourth of July traffic was a headache but the beach and ocean make this a great area to visit.

The open floor plan does sometimes get noisy and a few bedrooms were not as air conditioned as others but overall the 16 of us were very satisfied.

Great home, with every accommodation you could need.

  • 4 of 5

This home accommodated our large group beautifully. There are two bedrooms that are closed off from the rest of the house that are great for sleeping babies. The beach is an easy five minute walk. Each of us enjoyed our vacation!

I really enjoyed the beach house, it was amazing. The owners were very great with anything i had a question or concern about which was only a pool issue, and that was fixed immediately. Everything was so great, it was easy access to the beach, and stores and my kids loved it and said that they would love to continue to go again every year and would love to stay in the same house. The house is very big and had more then enough room. there were some beach supplies in the garage as well. overall we had a blast and would love to come back again. the property was very well maintained. the description and pictures and everything was exactly as shown on the pictures. the house is sound proof from the outside which was a plus for playing music. i would recommend this property.

Great vacation home for our family,

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we have rented this house. We have 14people in our family and we all had a great time. I took a vote for next year and guess what we are planning to go back. The improvements that were made this passed year were great so pretty and comfortable. Can't say enough about the owners so very easy to deal with, really helped when my granddaughter left her glasses. We got them back no problem. Thanks for everything.

Very short walk. See photos
Car: recommended

This is the best location in the Destin area. Why? Our quite small upscale gated community is just a few minutes away from the best restaurants, best shopping, and best activities in the Destin area. It is a very short half block walk to the private beach entry. There are no high rise condo units looming above emptying thousands of people onto the beach. You can walk or bike to several very nice restaurants, shops and a well stocked CVS store. Located across from the south end of St Nicholas Ct on map below.
