Emerald Dunes #204 - Perfect family time!

Reviewed on Friday, May 9, 2014

We absolutely loved our Destin vacation on emerald beach. The photos correctly reflect the comfortable homelike atmosphere of the condo. The location is perfect, the beach pristine and one of the most beautiful we have stayed on! The beds are very comfortable. We would absolutely come back and stay at the exact same condo! The gentleman in the beach who takes care of the chairs and other rentals was very accommodating and had excellent restaurant recommendations!

Emerald Dunes #401 - Excellent View - Right on Beach - Good accommodations!

Unit #401 at Emerald Dunes is a good two bedroom unit. Emerald Dunes sits directly on the beach and Unit 401 is on the end, so the balcony off the dining area, wraps around. The layout is a little different - as you enter the unit from the street side, the master bedroom is the first room you come to, and then the other bedroom and bath, before you get to the kitchen/dining/living room which has the great view of the ocean and beach! When we arrived, after a plane ride, I did not find an iron, and went to the office, where they called the Dale E. Peterson offices to inform them of the missing item. Within an hour, someone knocked on the door and handed us a new iron. Great Service! The condo was clean, the furniture was in good shape and the kitchen had all the necessities. The whirlpool bathtub in the master suite bathroom was somewhat grungy so we avoided that and used the shower in the second bathroom. Overall a good place to stay if you are looking for a nice two bedroom unit on the beach - and within walking distance of the Crab Pot restaurant!

Emerald Dunes #201 - No Surprises

Reviewed on Wednesday, July 10, 2013

We arrived a bit later than expected and were able to access the condo with no problems via the convenient access code. The accomodations were exactly as described on the website. Everything was clean, neat, and in working order. Access to the beach was as described and gorgeous. Remember to pull hard on the sliding door to the patio as it is quite heavy and sturdy. We actually thought we were locked out on the patio until we put our backs into it. The grounds and facilities were neat and well-kept. Sand rinsing facilities were available and easy to access. All the tenants seemed well-behaved and i saw nightly security patrols. We couldn't have been more pleased with Emerald Dunes.

Emerald Dunes #401 - Enjoyable, relaxing week at tha beach

Reviewed on Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Our condo was well furnished, comfortable and convenient to the beach. I liked not having to check in at a front desk, just using the key code. I have stayed at Emerald Dunes several times with a friend and enjoyed its location. I would recommend Emerald Dunes to others planning a trip to Destin. I also like a complimentary beach setup. Many rentals do not offer beach setups.

Emerald Dunes #401 - Emerald Water and Sugar Sand Cures all!

We had a fantastic time at Emerald Dunes. The condo was very clean and large enough for the family to be comfortable. The bed in the master room was very comfortable which is unusual for a condo. My 9 yr old son loved the bunk beds and our two teenage girls shared the second bedroom. Convenience of going to and from the beach a big plus. Pool is pretty small but kids enjoyed it anyway. This Crystal Beach location is so close to everything you need. We will be back!
