Good place. Great location. Room included with beach chairs and umbrellas. But we did not get a welcome packet we had to get it later. Also, the elevator never worked. Fix those issues and it's perfect.

Emerald Dunes #204 - Perfect family time!

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 #204- Great views and beach access, unit was very clean.

Once again we had a lovely time. Destin is our favorite place. The young lady that I originally booked thru Latoya (I forget) was most helpful and pleasant and extremely accommodating. Very enjoyable experience in dealing with her.

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.

Great location, on beach! The condo was clean, great lay out with lots of windows.

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 #302 - Great clean condo - loved the view

Reviewed on Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Our condo was ready on arrival, it was clean with all the comforts of home, the younger boys loved the bunk room. The view of the crystal clear water was amazing. Loved being able to open our master bedroom windows at night and listen to the waves. Also loved being close to our family who were staying at Crystal Dunes next door. Our beach attendant was awesome we loved him and he made our access to the beach and our chairs so simple and easy!! We love Emerald Dunes, will be back next year :)

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

Reviewed on Wednesday, June 12, 2013

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!

We had the best experience we've had! The person who booked our vacation was awesome and deserves a raise! Her name begins with a K. She took her time making sure that we had everything we wanted and needed for our anniversary! She visually took me through a tour of our room at emerald dunes room 104! Our guest services agent went above and abound to give my husband and I both excellent customer service! The grounds keeper was amazing! The staff was accommodating beyond your wildest dreams! We reccommend Dale Peterson Vacation Rentals with ***! We thank each of you for making our trip which was short, very sweet and very nice! We were treated like royalty! We will be back! Thank you!
