Nice updated modern condo

  • 5 of 5

Emerald beach is at the top of front beach road which is convenient to traveling to local shops and stores! Emerald beach is somewhat confusing to learn your way around when first arriving but the condo from Amy and Rockey was great. It's updated. Has washer and dryer and full kitchen. Has dishes, pots, pans, utensils, and silverware. Two rolls of toilet paper for 6 people for 4 days was provided which caused us to buy extra but that wasn't a big deal. Dishwasher tabs and laundry soap was provided but we brought our own laundry soap so that we could keep our laundry under control and not use theirs up. Towels and wash clothes were provided, even air freshener for the bathroom! The balcony was full of sand buckets, shovels, nets, boards, etc. Chairs and umbrella are provided as well which was great! Overall, it was a great experience and will definitely rent from them again!

Great 2nd Stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Emerald Beach condo. The owners are so great to work with---even offering discounts for past guests! They are always prompt with their communication and very forthcoming with details and information to make your stay great. The condo itself is located on the 8th floor near the elevators, which is very convenient. They have provided everything you need for your stay (even beach chairs!). While the condo shows some wear due to the high volume of guests, it is overall clean. We were surprised to see that the resort has added gas grills and large games (corn hole, shuffleboard, etc) to the resort pool. Overall, a great vacation--we will definitely return in the future!

Best family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazing and the view was spectacular. The beds was so comfortable and it was so clean. The resort was also worth the stay it has ice cream bar, sky bar, and Starbucks. The whole trip was the very best.

Just as described

  • 5 of 5

We try to go every year to the Gulf Coast for a mini getaway. Love this building for its location and amenities. We did discover that you can put your name on a list at front desk to sign out a grill, we just never got around to it. The condo is beautiful and had everything we wanted. Owners were easy to work with. The view from the balcony is wonderful for spotting marine life. Would love to stay here again.

Not what I expected

  • 1 of 5

The resorts was great, condo was not, door would not lock, called owner and he gave instructions to reset lock, lock wasn't the problem, all you had to do was wiggle handle and push door and it opened right up so we had to take our stuff to the car and go back and forth and get what we needed, the beds had no boxsprings, just a hard mattress setting on wood, I have RA and could not sleep on any bed here, I tried to sleep on couch but it's sticky and sinks down in the middle (1 more day left and the only sleep I've had is in a lawn chair by the pool), the shower is not as pictured, it has a huge step up and I cannot get in it, the only bath I had was at the pool. My hubby had to bend down in shower as if your over 5'10 you will touch the ceiling in the shower and the drain is slow also. The appliances are rusting out, the rug in living room rolls up on corner by kitchen and I tripped over it and hurt my foot, it's swelled up and now I'm in pain. The internet is slow and we tried to watch Netflix but you could only watch 10 minutes and then it would quit working and you had to reset it, finally just gave up on it. The door to patio is messed up and will not lock, it's hard to open and both me and my hubby have fell out it multiple times thus that is the reason I now have bruises on my leg and my arm. I've stayed at several places in past but this is the worst ever. So ready to go home and this vacation was horrid. 1 night left here, haven't got robbed yet is the best part of it😱Oh and the ac unit sounds like it's falling apart too!!!!

Owner's Response: We apologize for the lock problem. We are required by the resort to use electric lock. But when the $600 lock was trickily damaged, we really can't have a timely solution to it since we are not allowed to just install an arbitrary lock. For other problems. We assume that it was just frustrations due to the lock problem since before the lock went wrong, you still told us you loved the condo. We do understand your frustrations and decided to partially refund your stay to show our apology. In response to some of the comments, putting mattress directly on a wooden bed is a common practice. Having a small stair toward the shower place is common as well, and the stair is only about 1/4 of the height of a tub. Also, due to hurricane and flood concerns, all condos in the area have a stair at the bottom of the balcony door. We do think these are common to all condos in the area. But overall, we want to say sorry that our condo did not meet your expectations.

We were here for our second year! Just as good as last time!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying here. We were just as pleased this time as we were last time. Also like last year, Amy was extremely easy to deal with, and very accommodating. She was on top of everything that we needed to know and made our entire trip a very fun and relaxing one.

When we arrived, we found the condo to be clean and everything worked as described..My wife and 5 year old daughter and I had such a great, fun and relaxing stay. The on-site ammenties of the hotel such as easy beach access, fast elevators, Sky Bar, convenience store/gift shop ice cream bar, Starbucks, large heated pool, large kiddie pool with water buckets make this place hard to beat.

We definitely will be coming back again next year if not before!!!
