About Bill or Terry

We came to Destin as tourists an then moved because we didn't want to leave! We are now permanent residents in the area!

Bill or Terry purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Bill or Terry chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin is one of the best beach vacation areas in the United States! There is so much to do here on this little island! The water is clear, the beaches are sugary white, and the location can't be beat! Easy access to all the major cities in the south! Easy airport access to major cities like Atlanta, Dallas, Cincinnati, Memphis, Tampa, and Houston!

What makes this cottage unique

Gated community with 2 pools, a tennis court, basketball goal, and a private beach cabana with lounge chairs, picnic tables, and restrooms! No other neighborhood along this stretch of beach has one! They may have a private access to the beach but you won't find a private beach cabana! Walk to restaurants!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a good time at Admiral's Club but it's definitely not my favorite rental. A few issues: I had to call the property manager to get our access codes after 4 p.m. The unit in the back had a mildew odor. The home was not small child friendly and I'm glad my kids are older. The spiral staircase was a bit rickety and the house was cluttered with eccentric "art." The kitchen looks wonderful but we love to cook and the location of the sink was a challenge. Time to replace some falling-apart wash clothes too. On the plus side, the home was good sized, the TVs were great, the location was great.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time at Admirals Club! We don't advertise our home as being "small kid friendly!" Not sure what the odor is in the back but will check that out. Glad you enjoyed the spaciousness, the 60 inch TV, and the great location.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was beautiful and perfect for my family.. However... Whoever designed the kitchen and put the sink in the corner did not know what they were doing.. Water kept getting everywhere because there was a big gap between the two sinks.... Other than that it really was the perfect house

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Admirals Club! It is a super nice home in a gated community with the best amenities! Not sure what the problem was with the sink. If you turn the water off before switching sinks, there shouldn't be a problem. Sorry that the design caused any inconvenience.

We had a great vacation in Destin in this rental. Loved being so close to the pool -where we spent a lot of time with our little swimmers! Walk to the beach was pretty quick and having the wagon made it so much easier.

I traveled with a few couples for a relaxing beach vacation, and that's exactly what we got with this rental! The property was exactly what we expected it to be and more! It was extremely clean and well-maintained, the staff was very polite and helpful, and the location in the neighborhood was perfect. Being right next to the pool was awesome and it was a short walk to the beach with a very nice private access. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family and I would love to stay there again!

Reviewer Comments:

We were very pleased with our stay at the Admirals Club at Emerald Shores. A few maintenance issues arised, but my husband or maintenance promptly fixed them. (Towel bar, Xbox, garbage disposal..) The guest house has a bit of a musty odor, and linen closet a bit grungy. Laughed at the hodge podge of styles/decor. throughout and loved the master suite shower...beautiful! Convenient to pool and appreciated the big driveway. Cars parked at pool area blocked entrance for 2 days...suggest a no parking spot directly in front of gate entrance. Mgt. Company was helpful and prompt in getting us needed information about check-in, and check-out with letter and email. Thought the sofa in living area was a pull-out, but not. Everyone was comfortable and temperature just right inside and out. Thought a late night arrival would be a bit cheaper, but it wasn't. Hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: So glad you were pleased and enjoyed your stay at Admirals Club! It is a super nice home with nice upgrades and extras one doesn't typically find in a vacation rental. Who has a DVR, HBO, Showtime, and an extended sports package, not to mention a brand new XBOX 360? The disposal just needed the reset button pushed! Very simple fix. Not sure what the parking issue was. There are 3 places for overflow parking at the pool. Not everyone has room for 5 to 6 vehicles in their driveway.

Our stay with Crystal Waters was incredible. The homes were beautiful in a cute neighborhood! The amenities were great and the private beach access was the best part! Would absolutely recommend the place to anyone. The customer service was great and whenever we had a question or concern, we could just call and get immediate help which was great. Definitely recommend going to Camille's for dinner, the food and service were phenomenal.
