Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our first floor corner Unit has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths with approx. 1800 sq. feet. It is located in Emerald Towers, a private, gated community. The Unit is about 50 feet from the sandy white beaches and emerald green waters of the Gulf. It has access to the private beach from the master bedroom, living room and front. No waiting for elevators!! We recently renovated and professionally decorated our Unit. Come relax in style.

As you enter the Unit, you will be greeted with plantation shutters along the floor-to-ceiling wrap around windows and your view of the beautiful waters of the Emerald Coast. When you open the sliding glass doors, you will step onto your private balcony which opens up to the pool and is a few feet from the exclusive sugar white beach.

The Unit is tiled and has ceiling fans in every room. The family room has fantastic views of the beach and a queen sleeper sofa. The master bedroom comes with a heavenly king size bed and private bath. You'll get a good night sleep here. The master also has a superb view of the beach and pool area. The 2nd guest bedroom has a wonderful king size bed as well and its own private bath. The 3rd bedroom has two twin beds and optional bed rails for the little ones. All bedrooms have mounted flat screen TVs for your entertainment.

The Unit comes with a fully equipped kitchen and has granite counter tops. You'll enjoy preparing pancakes for breakfast or eating your favorite take out foods from the wide-ranging number of restaurants within a short distance from Emerald Towers. The large dining table is a great place to catch up with your family and friends while you watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the emerald waters.

If you enjoy grilling, Emerald Towers has BBQ grills overlooking the pool and beach and just a few steps from our Unit. If you want to burn a few calories, you can use the exercise room as you enjoy views of the pool and beach or you can practice your tennis swing in the lighted courts at night after a day at the beach.

Emerald Towers is in the heart of Destin. Just minutes away from: i) entertainment (Big Kahuna’s Water park, The Track, music venues), (ii) golf courses, (iii) recreational activities (deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, boating, kayaking, jet skiing and bicycling), (iv) restaurants (from McDonald's to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse), and lots and lots of shopping (Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlet Mall) plus much more.

We are not the only ones who think this is a great place. The Emerald Coast was recently selected as the #1 Beach in America by USA Today readers, the Best Beach in the South and Top Family Destination for the 8th year in a row by Southern Living readers and Frommer's Travel Guide ranked these beaches in the Top 12 in the world for 2010.

We are glad we are able to share our home with you and know you will enjoy your stay here as you make great memories with your family and friends.

About Maria

I have lived in Houston for most of my life and my husband moved to Houston from New York in 1990. My husband and I purchased this unit with my parents who live close to us. We wanted a place to come with our two small boys and enjoy ourselves and relax.

Maria purchased this condo in 2009

Why Maria chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Nothing compares to the sugar white beaches of Destin. We looked at about 40 different units in Destin before we purchased this Unit. In the end it came down to two units, I was really against this Unit because it had stark white walls, plaid curtains from wall-to-ceiling and ugly furniture. I wanted another unit somewhere else that was recently renovated but that unit was across the street from the beach. My father insisted that this was the better Unit. He said 'you can change the paint and all the furnishings but you can't change the location of the beach'. He won and he was right!! After repainting the unit, installing new window treatments and buying all new furniture, I am so thrilled we purchased this Unit. Now inside and out, it is without question the best Unit.

What makes this condo unique

It's on the beach!! We don't have to get in the car and drive a 'short' distance. We don't have to cross the street and look out for cars. We just have to open the sliding glass doors and we are on our private beach. We can come back and forth from the beach as many times as we need and it is not a problem because the doors are about 50 feet from the beach. The other fantastic thing about our 2nd home is that it is in the center of Destin. Even though it feels like we are on a private island, when we leave out the front gates, we are literally in the heart of Destin and minutes from everything. I couldn't have wished for a better place to spend family vacations.

Clean, Fully Equipped, Slightly Dated, Comfortable beds. The side windows were always closed since they faced a private beach access which was not used often. We enjoyed the quick beach access and green space from the ground floor. Overall, a good value.

A great place to stay!!

  • 4 of 5

The Emerald Towers is a very nice place to stay. Maria, Dan and Joe who help keep the property maintained are also very personal. It made our stay feel like home. They are so helpful with anything that you need. They almost feel like family. Emerald Towers is gated, clean, and family friendly. Right on the beach, with a work out facility, pool and bar b q right at your finger tips. Margie from Missouri

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay during the month of February at the condo, and were able to take advantage of the bar-b-que grills overlooking the ocean. The staff members at Emerald Towers that you mentioned are all wonderful, and I'm glad they made your stay better. We look forward to seeing you in the fall again.

Stunning views and great beach.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful. The staff were very nice. My only complaint is when I asked about a hot tub I was told there wasn't one which is true but she didn't tell me I could use the one next door. My sister read that in her welcome packet or we wouldn't have known about it. Room was very nice and spacious.
