Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Great! Great! Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we've stayed on the first floor, yet still had a beautiful view of the gulf! We had privacy, with great access to the pool and beach. Kitchen is well stocked with plenty of room to add our personal items. We had four adults and two children and the space was perfect with plenty of room to spread out. The kids loved having the beach toys available for their use. And we were so convenient to everything we wanted to do. Bottom line - great condo, great location, great stay! Thanks Maria!!

The unit was very big. It had a lot of room for 8 people. Close to restaurants and shopping.

The only downside was not being able to put beach chairs or umbrellas on the beach.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately, many condos in Destin, Emerald Towers among them, are no longer allowing guests to bring their own umbrellas and chairs during peak season. Part of the reason for this change in the rules is beach safety . There have been some past problems with umbrellas coming out of the ground during strong winds and hurting people. The beach service does a very good job securing the umbrellas, and it nice not to have to carry the umbrellas and chairs to and from the beach every day. We have, however, passed your observation to management. We hope to see you again.

We loved the location of this unit. Everything was convenient--ocean, pool, grilling--and no stairs or elevators! The condo was well equipped, and we appreciated the 3 bathrooms!

Perfect Spot for a Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased at how spacious and big the condo was. We had 6 adults plus a 6yr old and it was the perfect size. We also loved the convenience to the pool and beach; you just open the patio door and there you are! The condo tower is also located in the heart of Destin; everything including grocery stores and entertainment is located within a short drive/walk. Thank you Maria, for allowing us to stay at your comfortable and well-equipped beach home.

Very nice vacation

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights in the condo and had a very nice time. The listing was as described with no surprises. The owner left a welcome bottle of wine for us which was a nice touch. The unit was clean with very comfortable beds that is always important to us. The unit was also well stocked with dishes but I did feel that not supplying more than a couple of rolls of toilet paper was a little on the cheap side considering the nightly cost of the unit but it was mentioned in the "what you need to bring note" so no big surprise. The unit was clean but could use some updating in the near future but was very comfortable and as described. It was well located in proximity to good restaurants, shopping and entertainment. I would recommend this unit to friends and family.
